The Rock, Paper, Shotcast
Rock, Paper, Shotgun finally speaks out loud. Hosted by LibSyn.com

Delayed by a few weeks due to, I dunno, terrorists, Adam, Jim and Alec return to their low-quality mics to discuss best SEO practices, Legend of Grimrock, Dishonored, the demise of STALKER 2, XCOM vs Xenonauts, Diablo III and, surprise surfrickingprise, how John was a bad healer in City of Heroes. Plus ce change.

In tribute to recent gaming news, this week's Rock, Paper, Shotcast has a terrible ending. But an excellent beginning. After an initial burst of singing, accompanied by the chirping of birds outside Alec's house, and the chirping of Adam's ghostly smoke detector, we ponder the possibility of pay-per-level gaming. In the brief moments when Jim is allowed to talk, he mutters about Legend Of Grimlock, and Dungeon Master. And Adam is scared of walls.

Jim reveals that Gunpoint is tough and unforgiving, and frantically clicks his mouse throughout, Adam celebrates Darksiders 2, and Alec chats about Rayman: Oranges. Adam then reveals that he's crap at games, after acknowledging he rarely finishes them. The rest of us reconsider our hiring protocols. And if you listen carefully at 22:22, you can hear that one of us is apparently working in a shop.

Assembling for the second ever Shotcast are these reprobates:

Alec Meer (mumbly)

Adam Smith (Northern)

Jim Rossignol (bored)

Kieron Gillen (not Northern)

Discussed: tea, Mass Effect 3's bugs, Half-Life, the problem with bosses, Perpetuum Online, Darksiders 2, games journalists singing Metallica, tower defence, Notch's space game and Assassin's Creed III.

Audio quality: Still poor. We're working on it. We need to get hold of some expensive microphones, soundcards, headphones and replacement larynxes, basically.

The Electronic Wireless Show is dead. Long live the Shotcast.


Brand new! In theory weekly! More confused than ever because we thought conducting it via Skype was a good idea!

Discussed - videogames, mostly. This week, Jim, John and Alec are your talking-all-over-each-other hosts.
