We’re BACK. Since our last podcast was all the way back in October, chronicling our escapades at EuroGamer, we figured we’d sit about again and talk utter rubbish about the year in gaming! You’ve read the review, now listen to two idiots babble incoherently about the same subject! Hoorah!

Rob finally gets off his face and reviews Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. We were amazed he finished it at all.

All that and less inside!

After 12+ hours of gameplay, Rob sizes up first impressions of utter corker Fallout 3 follow up. Is New Vegas a buggy piece of under-developed waste, or wasteland-simulating perfection? Our First Review will have its ends tied shortly. Rob is too rubbish to finish games on time.
