So far we’ve got away with it and Ms Lohan’s lawyers haven’t been contact.

We took a small diversion and changed the format of the show, something we end up doing once in a while and hopefully this works out for you guys. Let us know in the comments if it does.

In short, we changed the format, without changing the format. Makes no sense right? Didn’t to us either when we were working it out pre-show.

Nonetheless it felt good for us (ooooh Matron!) so we’ll run with it.

In a nutshell we spent most of our time talking more about Watch Dogs and why we still love it (warning, there are mini spoilers in this bit), why paying for demos is an awful idea but also one that may have legs, and how creativity is being shot.

Good god we actually had news to talk about this week!

Duncan and Phil returned to a more usual show including a wrap up of the weeks news, Sex Talks About Apps, and Retro Tunes. However we took a little spin on our what we’ve been playing section by talking a little about Replayability and what it means today. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this subject so get in touch and we’ll cover the best comments next week at the top of the show.

Look, we actually got to make an new episode. It only took three weeks and two BT engineers to get it working, but, yeah, we’re back!

It turned out to be a unique show because there was a point at which we weren’t sure if we were going to get this thing off the ground tonight but thank the internet Gods, it happened.

To bolster this special show we a triple helping of Sex Talks About Apps, a recap of E3 and how much it impressed us, as well as Retro Tunes, New Releases and of course what we’ve been playing. The last one is Watch Dogs, just to tell you all now, so if you don’t like the game, best skip that bit. Phil loves it, and it shows. A bit too much.

It’s good to be back and we hope you enjoyed the show. If you have don’t forget to share this around with all and sundry, we’ll love you forever. Or at least until next Sunday.

Is a question you may or may not have asked yourself given last weeks live broadcast problems and the fact that the Survival Island series on our YouTube channel appears to have stopped at Episode 11.

Very simply it’s down the fact that I’ve got a fault with my Broadband that is causing really bad connections between Phil and I when trying to produce the show or connect up on Minecraft. It may not be fixed until Wednesday 11 June leading to further delays.

Obviously this is out of my control to a degree but I wanted to make you all aware and to apologise for the topsy turvy nature of the past couple of weeks.

Phil and Duncan decided to chuck out the rulebook on the show running order… even though it’s their rulebook and they wrote it.

Which means that for the first time in ages they actually spent pretty much all the show talking about games, and playing them. Yeah, we couldn’t believe it either.

To give you a taster, they talked about bumper cars on Forza 5, possible pad destruction in Titanfall, Dragon Coins, the epicness that is Mario Kart 8, the shooty-shooty that is Wolfenstein and loads more besides.

Dalek Sex had recommendations for Apps this week including Monument Valley and LandGrabbers.

Can you guess who got an Xbox One this week?

Phil and Duncan return for (almost) 90 minutes of gaming opinion and frivolity. Phil this week appears to be a one-man quote machine; or is that mis-quote machine? We’ll let you decide.

Dalek Sex made a very welcome return with Sex talks about apps and he’s bang on form this week! Just don’t try Dragon Coins. Well do. But don’t…

You can get the episode from the embedded player on the right of this page or by going direct to our Spreaker page.

It was May 4th people! You know what that means right?

Well quite clearly Duncan didn’t but at least we got to shoehorn a short John Williams medley in to the start of the show.

Sadly Dalek Sex is absent this week due to his punishing schedule over at The Lolocaust but we still had a packed show.

Survival Island is one of those places you don’t normally pick as your summer holiday destination. Unfortunately Duncan and Phil both ended up there through no fault of their own. (Okay, so they opened up Minecraft and created a world, but you know, someone else forced them to do it. Honest.)

It’s a brand new YouTube show and it’s premiering very soon. Head over to youtube.thegamescast.com - and if you’re especially lucky you’ll catch us on Twitch as we broadcast when we record for YouTube.
