Lies are told, governments fall, goats are visited, flatulent messages are decoded inaccurately, secrets are conveyed in whisper and then forgotten, and E3 is predicted with unprecedented precision. Adventure, thrills, titillation await.
20/05 23:50 - Idle Thumbs 211: Spector's Oil

14/05 05:17 - Idle Thumbs 210: Pro Fish Smart Fish
Pro Fish Smart Fish, Dice and Card Fish / Diablo III and StarCraft II, Twilight Struggle and Defcon too / A week of draws and decks and rolls, of seats too hot and wars too cold / That's this week's podcast at a glance, its half-rhymes masked with assonance.
06/05 23:06 - Idle Thumbs 209: Ten Percent Success Rate
What did we all bring for show and tell this week? Danielle explores a psychedelic outdoor world and misses her favorite book, Chris re-visits his first encounter with Star Wars, while Spaff performs one of the most amazing feats ever attempted in gaming and finds himself $70 poorer as a result....

22/04 21:01 - Idle Thumbs 207: Bublé Bloodborne Bloodbeef
This week everybody gets a window into Sean and Danielle's Bloodborne-consumed lives, everybody is convinced by Spaff to play an "RPG whodunnit roguelike," and while only Danielle played "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture," everybody else was quite taken with her description of the experience.
15/04 20:53 - Idle Thumbs 206: Owen Wilson's Nose
Before Owen Wilson's nose was attached, this world was a lot for Old Granny Dreamcast to take in. That newfangled headgear you're supposed to be wearing now. Games on telephones. The instruments everyone carried around a couple years ago seemed to be coming back. "Be a rock star," said one new...
08/04 23:24 - Idle Thumbs 205: LPBs and HPBs
Imagine your dream LAN. Sit back and really picture it. If your dream LAN is one where the snacks are artisanal, the soda water is gently flavored, and the wifi's always free, you may be a dad, but who cares with a ping this low?
01/04 22:53 - Idle Thumbs 204: The Reader's Pleasure
Hey, does that ladder have your blood echoes? Just checking. By the way, that reminds me of a dream I had. I think it was about cyborgs. Or lesbian dinosaur cyborgs. There were definitely cyborgs. But look?we all serve at the pleasure of the readers. Am I right or am I right?
25/03 21:51 - Idle Thumbs 203: Goat Impossible
This week, one of us is a murderer... But who? Is it Chris, who spent the week maximizing the traffic flow in his Cities: Skyline city, a city so perfect no one wanted to live there? Or could the murderer be Danielle, the one who spent the week actually murdering a bunch of people -- fictionally...
19/03 02:23 - Idle Thumbs 202: Poopwater, New Mexico

The old becomes new, in a pod cast by two,
as a title once lost becomes found.
Chris and Jake plunge in to the new Darkest Dungeon,
and Besiege delights as it confounds.
Sean joins Chris and Jake before the ad break,
and Gex lore is run into the ground.

05/02 06:24 - Idle Thumbs 196: Ode on a Grecian Hat Sale
It was the 90s, and there was time. There was a quiet space left in between, room to decide for yourself what was what. But then Mario had to go and open his big fat mouth. Now he never shuts up.

Jake goes back in time with Grim Fandango Remastered, Nick makes sure the trains run on time in Mini Metro, Danielle moves time forward in controlled and user-selected increments in Majora's Mask 3D, and Chris talks about a dead guy coming to life, limbs flailing, cursing at everyone. Somewhere,...
21/01 23:50 - Idle Thumbs 194: A Grave Ghost
The match is about to start, the anticipation so thick you can see it in the air. Dust2, of course. You strap on your MicroSoft HoloLens (Pimple edition, bought new) and scan the crowded auditorium. Aimbots found: Six. Wallhacks: Eighteen. You're not sure why you even came. You put the device...
14/01 15:31 - Idle Thumbs 193: General Interest
It's road trip week. Buckle your torn-off seat belt, and put the Elijah Wood Flipper movie on the in-van VCR because we're going to Disney World. Not responsible for any injuries of any kind including death.
07/01 20:28 - Idle Thumbs 192: The New Blindfolded Fool
You've delved too deep below the sea, to a time before human memory. A voice from your past won't stop echoing in your head, telling you lies, telling you about space, telling you things you've heard so many times before.
01/01 02:46 - Idle Thumbs 191: Not the Greatest, but the Best
We ring out the old, and ring in the new, with what may be the oldest conversation in the existence of our medium: What is the best video game of all time? Not the greatest, mind you, but the best. See you in 2015! (Thanks to Matter magazine for sending us on this quest as part of their video...
24/12 19:13 - Idle Thumbs 190: A Very Spectrum HoloByte Christmas
It is the season of giving gifts, unless you are Sean Vanaman, who only seems to receive gifs. Danielle and Chris get deeper into Dragon Age Inqusition, which mostly means Iron Bull talk. After that, it's time for a holiday mailbag trip through the digital back alleys of the competitive Smash...
18/12 17:47 - Idle Thumbs 189: Serious Ma'am
Alone and in a strange place, a robot types furiously at a terminal keyboard. "dir" it writes. No response. "asdfghjk," it continues, to similar success. It glances around, looks back at the keyboard and then the screen. "load Dragon Age."
10/12 23:53 - Idle Thumbs 188: A Refined Baby
With the end of the year coming up fast, Jake and Danielle are joined by Patrick Klepek of Giant Bomb, to pull back the curtain on the deliberations and distractions involved in picking the Games of the Year, and to share some surprising travel tips the modern gamer may find useful.

26/11 21:33 - Idle Thumbs 186: Doctor DNA
It is time to give thanks. Join us in giving thanks for inexpensive content updates, for the Super Smash Bros. metagame, for mobile free-to-play experiences, for elephant slaughter, for knowing one's own gaming limits, for blockbuster pseudo-reboots, and for Chris and Sean arguing about basically...
19/11 06:39 - Idle Thumbs 185: Beppo's Hole
Beppo's Hole is not a place one wants to spend very much time (it's kind of a rollicking mess) but here we all are so let's make the best of it. In Beppo's Hole, Danielle catches the scent of Far Cry 4 but can't stay and truly enjoy it until later. In Beppo's Hole, Chris serves himself up the...
12/11 07:18 - Idle Thumbs 184: Super Pools 'n' Ghosts
This week the 90s are back, but what if they came back wrong? Holiday reviewing season has Danielle in its grasp, but that may mean she has just been playing a ton of upcoming Nintendo and Sega games. That and Advanced Warfare. As the old saying goes, "Behind every Dorito is a gross, super-ripped...
05/11 19:28 - Idle Thumbs 183: The Anonymouses
As you get older you begin to wonder if the culture has changed, or you have changed. Are you in a place now where you're just unreachable by marketing, not by force but because you are drifting out of sync with the cultural consciousness? Last time you stuck your head up and really looked around...
29/10 03:49 - Idle Thumbs 182: I Am Suspicious of Myself
A lot of aliens were defeated this week, but at what cost? Danielle finally reaches the end of Alien: Isolation, having given the game a complete day of her life. In Beyond Earth, Jake, Chris, and Nick have shot some giant worms and roving green animals, but aren't sure what that means, or why...

15/10 22:39 - Idle Thumbs 180: Wars & Pieces
Through examining the clues laid before us, interrogating everyone in sight, and making mental leaps heretofore unperformed by man, we deduce that no matter what they tell you, in video games you'll never be the Sherlock Holmes of the story; you're always Watson, and you always have been. Plus,...
08/10 06:19 - Idle Thumbs 179: Shadow of Something
We all live in the shadow of something. We all have our daemons. When Chris set foot in the world of Alien: Isolation, all he could think about was the time he killed a billion Orcs who never forgot him. When Danielle played Alien: Isolation, all she could think of was how the love affair would...
01/10 05:03 - Idle Thumbs 178: CS Losers
Join us as we all embark on our own personal trips through the dusty dunes. After 15 years clean, Sean gets a taste of Counter-Strike and is feared lost, Chris embarks on a journey of the mind on Desert Golfing's back 1500 and comes out changed, Jake falls through a time hole into his past, and...

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
02/09 15:17 - [EchoPlayer] An Extra Life
EchoPlayer.com expires on the 9th October and I’m finally leaving that domain name behind. However, for those of you who have stumbled across this site in its past 5 years of life, I’m continuing it through the aptly named An Extra Life. It’s currently in development and...
21/09 08:30 - [Industry] Console User Interface
If there’s one thing that this console generation has brought - aside from increased technical-wizardry and possible motion gimmickry - it’s more-sophisticated graphical user interfaces. The PlayStation3’s XrossMediaBar, Xbox 360’s Dashboard and the Wii’s…...
20/09 09:00 - [Culture] Favourite Games?
Although perhaps not the best example of gaming’s social acceptance, it is quite telling that neither MySpace nor Facebook - the two largest social networking sites on the web - currently feature a designated area for you to input your “Favourite Games”.
You can tell the...
19/09 09:00 - [News] Theme My PSP
The recent 3.70 firmware update for the PSP has brought along the option of official custom themes for the device.
Available to download from the UK PlayStation site, the majority are related to a certain game and are quite cumbersome to use - except the excellent Cookies theme (I’ll...
18/09 09:00 - [Impressions] Destroy All Humans Again
Following the previous nostalgia-tinged post, I thought I’d now take a look at Destroy All Humans, as it too features a prominent and memorable setting - a humorous portrayal of 1950’s USA. Again, this is a past review of mine, at the time of the game’s release. A sequel has...
17/09 09:00 - [Impressions] Way Beyond Good & Evil
Writing about the joy of exploring Rapture in Bioshock brought back fond memories of my time exploring another distinctive and rich world - Hillys, in the seminal Beyond Good & Evil. For old time’s sake here’s a look at a review I wrote way back when (slightly tarted-up). If you...
14/09 09:25 - [News] PS3VR
Early next year Sony is set to release PlayTV in certain PAL territories (including the UK, thankfully), allowing people to watch and record digital television on their PS3 through a combined TV tuner and personal video recorder.
Although Freeview players are becoming cheaper and more...
13/09 19:06 - [News] Newsbyte 01
Yakuza 3 confirmed for PS3. Sadly it’s currently Japan only, like no.2.
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction dated. October in USA, November over here.
A shooting game with half a million guns? A preview of Borderlands.
New controller colours for Xbox 360. Pink...
13/09 18:50 - [EchoPlayer] Newsbyte 00
Although staying abreast of all the happenings in the gaming world is interesting and exciting, it’s also quite laborious at times. Unless you have something particularly noteworthy to report, you often end up recycling what everyone else has already said - with the majority of it being...
13/09 09:10 - [Upcoming] Behind the Killzone
After E3 2007’s showing of Killzone 2, my interest in the game has grown exponentially. Visually it was actually pretty close to the pre-rendered trailer that was shown many moons ago - rivaling Crysis in many respects. Atmospherically it seems to be very strong - hopefully it won’t...
24/09 22:40 - [Old Portables] New GBA Model Released (Not Micro)
In officially the quietest launch ever, Nintendo released a new version of the GBAsp in America. Absolutely nothing changed? apart from the screen. It?s significantly brighter. And it?s backlit, not sidelit. The joy.
Also, the button which previously toggled brightness on and off now...
23/09 22:36 - [Nintendo DS] Nintendo DS WiFi Details in October
At Iwata?s fact filled TGS speech he also talked a bit about the upcoming WiFi service for the DS. It?s set to launch in November worldwide and Iwata said that full details will come in October.
So stay tuned for that.
23/09 22:35 - [Nintendo DS] Nintendo DS Price Cut (predicted it you know?)
Yup, today NoE announced a price cut for the NDS taking effect from the 7th of October.  This coincides with the launch of 2 new DS bundles.
The console on it?s own will now cost £89.99 and the brand new pink DS with Nintendogs Dachshund version will retail for...
06/09 22:37 - [Sony PSP Games] 185,000 PSPs sold in 4 days.
Sony?s PSP console has become the fastest-selling games console of all time in the UK, selling a huge 185,000 units in its first four days on sale, perhaps even more via the online markets.
High street store enjoyed an incredible weekend, grossing a whopping £33.3 million in hardware...
18/08 22:20 - [General] Xbox 360 Launch Details
Yesterday afternoon, Microsoft announced the plans for the Xbox 360 launch at the Games Developer conference.
Although Microsoft did not state when the launch date will be, we were all given the much talked price and bundles. I can reveal that there will be two separate bundles available to...
17/08 22:17 - [Old Portables] GBA Micro Dated
The third iteration of the Game Boy Advance will hit Europe on November 4th priced at £69. It?ll come in silver, blue, pink and green colours with more faceplates coming later
Thsi seems to be the latest piece of news in what I expect to be a minor news revolution inorder to ease the...
01/08 22:12 - [Games] Resident Evil 5 details
Announced sometime ago for the PS3 and XBox 360, Resident Evil 5 is naturally set after the previous game and is already looking sumptuous. IGN reports on the latest issue of Famitsu Xbox which includes a new interview with the game?s producer Jun Takeuchi.
Most interestingly is the...
21/07 22:22 - [Sony PSP Games] PSP Games Priced
Sony has been contacting retailers and telling them how much first party PSP games are going to cost. After spending £179.99 on the value pack you will then have to spend £34.99 to buy games like Wipeout and Ridge Racer.
So, despite having to wait 6 months for launch and having...
30/06 22:11 - [Consoles, General] Japan not keen on Xbox 360. Loves PS3 and Wii.
It would seem that despite a solid E3, Microsoft are still having problems cracking the Japanese market. Famitsu did a survey of the gaming public, asking what next gen console they were most interested in. 42.2% said they prefered the Revolution, 39.8% went for the PS3 and a pathetic 18% went...
31/05 22:09 - [Games Based on Movies] Peter Jackson’s & EA’s King Kong Game
Eurogamer has a nice selection of shots from Peter Jackson?s King Kong the upcoming game based on the, naturally, upcoming movie.
Unlike the majority of film tie ins, produced by EA and the like (mainly EA), which are quite horrendous, this game is worth your attention as it?s being...
