We also go over the familir arguements; Andoid vs iPhone, Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3 and how best to deal with trick or treaters!

Yup new podcast is up over here and also on iTunes. We go off on quite a rant about how Dark Souls has been a disappointment but also why the culture of video game reviewing is pretty crap right now.

We also find out a bit about Flik's childhood records and what you should not say to your partner's mother (in her own language!)

A couple of links relevant to this cast: GLaDOSiri on iPhone 4S and Flik's official review of Dark Souls.

As always, any questions, comments, suggestions, requests for medical trials:

Managing to stay on schedule, episode 11 is here or over on iTunes now!

In it we cover a lot of ground with our gaming calendar getting very busy. Cue plenty of Battlefield 3, Gears of War 3, Dead Island and Aliens: Colonial Marines chat.

Flik brings some startling evidence to my attention that proves we are both psychopaths and we try to discover why all dwarves are Scottish....

Sammy Slacker

Keeping with my trend, I have been working too much and filling free time with Team Fortress 2 (blame Flik) so posts have been less frequent. I haven't uploaded a video to Youtube in a while either (also trying to rectify this evening).

So what's been happening? Mostly TF2 really, we are on target to do another podcast this weekend, prepare for the most random one yet I reckon. Serious game drought means we will probably rant about the crap that annoys us and possibly tell the odd tale.

If you have any questions or suggestions, you can email , hit up our youtube channels or or alternatively you can reach us on twitter @Blightywarrior and @GamerIanD

Podcast #5

Ok so perhaps I have been lacking in my blogging duties lately. I'll make up for it by announcing podcast #5 is here or on iTunes!

In it we ramble on about how there are no decent games out right now and fill in some space with some random Left 4 Dead audio.

I test out a new soundproofing mechanism (see attached image) and Flik brings up La Noire (again!)

We are also looking for someone to do a decent logo for the podcast, please send us your work to

Podcast #4 - That morality thingy


As promised, we have stuck with the fortnightly updates and the fourth podcast can be found on iTunes or here.

In it we cover what we have been up to post-E3 and ponder morality in gaming. Flik expresses his opinions on religious advertising (to my amusement) and I let slip the day I showed my bare arse to some Jehovahs witnesses.... I am also put through an alignment test to see just how evil I am, you can find this here

The following images are also referred to in the podcast,

Yes a weekend of furious editing and the b:gh podcast is finally up! You can find it here or alternatively, it is available on iTunes.

In it we cover our round up of E3 2011, focusing on what we liked (and disliked).

Flik points out in the cast that a particular developer gets away with swearing, you can find a video of that here:

As always, if you have any comments or questions you would like us to answer during the cast, email

Podcast #3

So E3 is over, overall impressions? If you want to hear mine and Flik's, the E3 special B:GH podcast is in the editing stage right now!

If you have any questions or comments, you can email, we would especially like to hear YOUR views on E3 - What do you think about the Wii U, PS Vita etc

Tuesday, 7 June 2011



E3 is in full swing! A couple of small suprises but so far, nothing really big or unexpected. Flik is busy writing up his "armchair views" of each of the big keynote speeches over at

Needless to say, he will have a LOT to talk about in the next podcast. When is it out you ask? After E3 is about as specific as I can be right now, allowing us the time to get a look at it all and debate over.

I am still working my way through my back catalogue of unfinished games, two Assassins Creed titles down already. I really need to finish this bunch before the next wave or they will never get looked at (I am talking to you Bioshock 1 !)

Podcast #2 is here!!!

Soooo Space Marine.....

Yep, the second podcast has been uploaded and can be found here on itunes shortly.

In the cast, we mention a 3D effect using the Wii. You can find the video explaining this here:

It takes a minute or so to "get into" but once it does, you will see why we were impressed.


Monday, 30 May 2011



I am currently editing the second podcast, a few hiccups with the recording process has meant theres a bit of an echo....Currently testing the waters with people to see just how annoying it is...

Also, Flik and I are testing Rift. There is a 7 day trial going at the moment, if you like(d) WoW I would recommend you try Rift!


Friday, 27 May 2011



Last night, Flik and I managed to get through podcast number 2! I am editing this right now and it should find its way onto itunes shortly....

In the meantime, go check out the first podcast on itunes and let us know what you think at

Whats going on?

Hello and welcome to the B:GH Blog.

It's been a bit quiet round here lately, which is mostly my fault since technically I run it all. I guess a lot of it can be attributed to waiting on iTunes reviewing the first podcast - it is up now, go search for it, I'll wait here until you get back....

My headset died the other week so I have yet to get any more videos on youtube. In fact, I haven't really played any co-op with Flik since it just isn't the same without voice. Hopefully all that will be sorted next week when I pick up some nice new ones.

So what's been going on? Well I have been battling it out on Dawn of War 2: Retribution multiplayer. It's pretty good if you like RTS games but until you "click" with the metagame, even the CPU opponents on easy will be tricky!

Flik has been finishing off his achievement hunting on Dynasty Warriors 7 and "patiently" waiting for L.A Noire to arrive. It did today, and then he had to go to work, isn't life great. He has also been mucking about on Witcher 2, videos are up on his youtube channel.

So stay with us and within a couple of weeks the next podcast will be up (new and improved formula) and expect a lot more videos to appear.

As always, if you have any comments, questions or just want to say hi, you can either:
