Four men lock themselves in a room and talk about games; sound like an ideal way to while away an hour? Then you're quite welcome to the 81st episode of the Eurogamer.net podcast. You can almost smell the excitement.

Newshound Wesley Yin-Poole gets all excited about the prospect of Halo 4 while Martin (hello!) gets iambic pentameter mixed up with trochaic heptameter (sorry!).
Gamesindustry.biz's Dan Pearson and Matt Handrahan, meanwhile, display utter contempt for the pair and wait for the conversation to turn to piecharts and business models, so in order to keep them happy the talk turns to Steam and EA's Origin.

The Eurogamer.net podcast goes out every Tuesday at 5pm, apart from when Tom C goes missing and we can't figure out where the record button is.
