    I'm liking the phrase "Pile of fail."
    But "Epic fail" would have been even better.

    7 minutes in and I had to pause to so I could hear it over my own laughter. Reminds me of episode 18 of the old podcast, that had me in hysterics.

    I actually we over-ran into lunch time - and I was very much looking forward to my rice pudding. I've got back into them lately.

    Baldur's Gate doesn't punish your alignment, but it does punish your reputation if it gets too low. You can't really play an evil character without getting a low reputation in BG1.
    This issue was removed in BG2.

    IIRC there are some weapons and items (definitely in the dialog expansions I use, if not the vanilla game) that can only be used by characters of certain alignments though.

    It's definitely true in BG2, where the Human Flesh Armour is only usable by evil characters.

    Great podcast guys. Got on board a month or so ago and am working my way back thru the archives.

    As a father to a (18 month old) daughter I'd exercise my own judgement concerning the games I'd let her play. This is probably a moot point - I doubt she'll give a toss about proper gaming though, exposed as she'll be to the pernicious influence of Casual gaming thanks to my good lady wife.

    There are some 14 year olds who can handle GTA IV et all, and some 40 year olds who can't. For responsible parents, ratings are just a framework.

    so even though screen sizes are increaseing on may peoples desks, how come the 1440x900 resolution is never tested anymore?

    i have a 19inch LCD that i game on and it works fine for what i need. the only problem is, when i try to buy a new card, i kinda have to just assume it will work.

    any thoughts?

    I've just finished listening to it. Wot a pile of tripe. I ended up skimming through the first 15 mins, until you decided you'd settle down. There's a reason you guys aren't stand-up comedians, and this was as bad as the PC Gamer UK lot at their worst.

    And gay jokes? Really? (Ho ho ho. I thought you called me a homo! Ha ha!)
