Podcast #45

SI boss Miles Jacobson joins us to talk Assassin's Creed, 10/10s and FM.

Has it been a week already? Yes. So it's time for another instalment of the award-losing Podcast, and this week we're delighted to welcome a special special guest, Sports Interactive managing director Miles Jacobson!

Miles joins host Tom Champion and regular contestants Tom Bramwell and Oli Welsh to discuss the games we've been playing (or developing) and the issues of the day. We also put a bunch of your questions to Miles and give out codes for TWO brand new games.

The big story on this week and the reason we held back the publication of this week's podcast by two hours, to match the embargo is Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood picking up 10/10 in its review. We discuss the game itself (we're fans) and then 10/10s and what they mean to each of us personally.

We also talk about the games Miles has been playing, which include Valkyria Chronicles II and, funnily enough, Football Manager 2011, which came out the week before last and picked up 9/10 in its review.

Miles gives us an insight into how the annual game is made, what happens immediately after it's finished, and whether it's true that the series has been cited in lots of divorce proceedings. We also have a natter about Steam (which FM uses, optionally) and bricks-and-mortar retailers getting upset about it in recent weeks.

The Podcast is published every Tuesday at 3pm UK time. Except today. And that time a couple of weeks ago. SHAMBLES.
