    A Bit Of Gaming Tech

    A Bit Of Gaming Tech

    With it recently being the festive period, it's a time when traditionally the capitalist market goes into overdrive and consumerism dominates.  This means usually we here at Codec Moments have been bought something fabulously techie, or have used the season of goodwill to cheer ourselves up with a fancy piece of kit.  So it's a bit strange then that only one of us has been on any type of spending spree and treated themselves to new peripherals... like a HOTAS flightstick.
    Listen to this episode of the Codec Moments podcast to find out:
    Who's been buying stuff
    Which games we were looking forward to have been delayed
    What a load cell does
    How much we know about the price of peripherals (not much it turns out)
    What the latest Fossil smartwatch is like
    If Andy broke free from his Apple shackles
    The correct way of pronouncing HOTAS

    Games to Look Forward To... 2020

    Games to Look Forward To... 2020

    It's a scant 10 days into January and we're putting out our second podcast of year... officially more than the last 3 months of 2019.  Woo!  What's more, it was actually a live broadcast on our own internet radio channel.  Oooh, get us catching up with the early Naught-ies.  For those that missed the delight of hearing us screw up in real time, here's an edited version that makes us sound ever-so-slightly more professional when we're talking about the games of 2020 that we're interested in.  If that's not enough, you can have around the clock noise right here.
    In this episode of the Codec Moments Podcast, you'll hear:
    Which games each of us looking forward to in the first half of 2020
    Some random tenuously linked CES gadget announcements
    A bit of a filthy quiz that neither Ali or Matt felt clean after
    Live jingles
    Late additions to the running order
    Mis-pronunciations
    GAME store news (and a bit of ranting)
    and more!
    Why not join our Discord channels to talk games (and other stuff) and listen to live recordings (and join in) – click here.  If you think that Discord is going to questions your skills on identifying grot film titles rather than your 2020 games taste, then why not check us out on Twitter, Facebook or contact us via email.  The Codec Moments Podcast will return soon.

    Gaming Quiz of the Decade & Codec Momentum 2019

    Gaming Quiz of the Decade & Codec Momentum 2019

    It's been a long year in gaming, and we're about to make it even longer with our quiz that not only features things from 2019, but from the whole of the last decade.  There's also the final roundup of Codec Momentum for the year, and news on what we'll be doing with it in 2020.  Join Matt, Andy and Ali for a trip down memory forgetful lane...
    In this episode of the Codec Moments Podcast, you'll hear:
    What gingerbread beer tastes like
    Whether starting a quiz after 10pm is a good idea
    Why the buzzers sound so familiar
    What it takes for Andy to lose his cool... and that he really doesn't like answering quiz questions
    Who finished where in the last leaderboard update for Codec Momentum
    If it was really worth all the time and effort to research the last decade and pose questions to Ali and Andy who couldn't give a f&*% about taking part
    How Codec Momentum is changing in 2020
    and not much thinking time because that was boring and got chopped in the edit

    2019's Surprises and Disappointments

    2019's Surprises and Disappointments

    Another year has passed all too quickly, and the team find themselves not only staring down another year, but it's another decade too.  To psyche themselves up for what the future may bring, Matt, Andy and Ali spend some time looking backwards on what surprised and disappointed them in 2019.  As a bonus (or simply a way to fill more airtime if you're being cynical), they also had a think on what from the last ten years has made them coo with delight and groan in anguish. 
    In this episode of the Codec Moments Podcast you'll hear:
    Gushing over releases in 2019
    Ranting about Stadia
    Whether Andy can think of anything older than a few days
    If the Switch has sold more than the PS4 (it hasn't)
    How many copies of Skyrim Matt has owned
    If Ali is an Xbox fanboy (he is)
    Which games lit up our year

    Codec Momentum - October 2019

    Codec Momentum - October 2019

    Another month goes by, the night's are drawing in, it's getting cold, and it's nearing the end of the year... which means we've been tucked up playing games rather than recording podcasts.  Two of us managed to emerge from our sofa's though and have checked out how October's Codec Momentum entrants have performed.  Plus, we finally got around to discussing what we think of GRID and Death Stranding.
    Listen to this month's Codec Momentum update to find out:
    Who's missing from the team line up
    What we honestly think about Codemasters latest racer
    Is Death Stranding intriguing?
    If the leaderboard has changed since last month
    How WRC 8 plays
    What the December bonus points will be for
    and who won the monthly prize draw
