Paul, Clive and Joe discuss the finer points of whats been going on in the world of gaming. With bonus hats.
First on the rather hastily sketched out agenda is the news that Valve is going to allow players to trade TF2 hats for games on Steam
. It seems like a bizarre decision on the face of it but Clive wonders if the move could be a preamble to game trading on Steam.[break]
Joe then pushes us onto the topic of Star Wars: The Old Republic
and Clive's thoughts
about how the game seems to be having trouble matching up with the known lore about the Star Wars universe.
We also cover Joe's new favourite game Limbo
and our thoughts on the fact that Blizzard has announced that you'll need a permanent internet connection to play Diablo 3
As always, we've also got our weekly competition, the lucky winner of which will walk away with, a Roccat Taito mouse mat
which features a heat-treated nano pattern surface which claims to offer an unparalleled tracking surface.
