Good banter

Love this podcast. If you love games (old & new) and friends taking the piss out of each other, this is the podcast for you.

Funny and full of juicy gaming juice

The trio of Paul, James and Ben do a great job of producing entertaining weekly commentary on the games they've been playing and some of the craziness of the gaming industry. They're all experienced gamers and/or developers, so their opinions are actually meaningful! Did I mention it's entertaining? I'd dock it half a star because they occasionally have microphone problems, but I've listened to podcasts with far worse sound quality (and not reviewed those), so I guess it's forgiveable. Definitely worth a listen.

A great Australian gaming podcast. This where I get most of my gaming news from and the guys are always entertaining and enjoyable to listen to. I never miss an episode.
