#001 — Universe’s Botanist

Britain’s soon-to-be favourite gaming podcast gets underway — Say hello to episode one of The Gamebrit Podcast!

Unsurprisingly, the Gamebrit team take to the mics to discuss, wait for it, videogames.

In episode one we chat about what we’ve been playing recently, the World Cup (of course), the return of the wallet-draining Steam summer sale and just whether anybody does (or should) really care about whether a game is 1080p and 60 frames per second.

You can subscribe to The Gamebrit Podcast via RSS, or via iTunes or Stitcher to make sure you never miss a future episode.

We’d love to read your feedback, so feel free to drop us a message via Twitter, our Facebook or by email at podcast@gamebrit.com.

Ashes Cricket 2013 Finally Released With Little Fanfare

You might not have noticed but Ashes Cricket 2013 has finally been released on PC after a lengthy delay.

Set to be released four months ago, riding on the wave of England’s commanding 3-0 summer victory over the Aussies, the game was delayed by developer 505 Games for further “polishing and fine tuning”.

However, it might not have been worth the wait with as one Planet Cricket user refers to the game as a “pile of crap”. While another says the game is “clearly not finished”.

To add insult to injury the game release co-insides with a humiliating performance from England in the first two tests of the most recent Ashes series.

The PC version is available on Steam for £13.99, the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U versions have yet to be dated.

Modern Warfare 2 Adds Some Steam

For all those PC gamers out there looking forward to some dedicated server action with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it looks like it’s not going to happen. Despite an online petition of over 100,000 signatures, online games will instead be run through Infinity Ward’s own servers. That means a lot less chance to mod games and create custom maps. Sorry people.

Also on this topic is the fact that the game has been teamed up with Valve to allow the game to be automatically updated by connecting to Steam servers, have use of the Steam Cloud for accessing their profile from any PC and also players will be able to unlock 50 Steam Achievements.
