Hello! It's Wesley, your friendly neighbourhood news editor here. Don't worry, I haven't sensationalised the story with this headline, or taken anything out of context. This really is the Eurogamer Podcast 110 and it really is about Dishonored, Medal of Honor, Crysis 3, SimCity and Project Zomboid!
Unfortunately, it's not about Chelsea's glorious Champions League semi-final victory over Barcelona. No sir. Because we recorded this before the match. But I thought I'd mention it. You know. Since it was glorious, and all.
Joining me on this audio/visual mindmelt is Eurogamer's creative strategist (and potential one man game developer - if he gets sick of being called a community manager) Tom "Champo" Champion, and occasional Eurogamer writer extraordinaire Will "the velvet owl" Porter (I have no idea why we call him the velvet owl).

First, we discuss Dishonored, a game that looks the business. More than that, though, it comes with a clock, and a poster, and a few very confused game journalists. Answers in the post.
Then, Will and I (Will.I.Am?) talk about EA games because we double-teamed an EA preview event in London. In this section of the podcast, we talk about Medal of Honor, Crysis 3 and SimCity. YES.
Will isn't just a flamboyant video game critic, don't cha know. He's also a video game writer - that is, he writes video games. That is, the words you read in them, not the code. The game he does this for is Zomboid, a zombie simulation survival isometric style thing that's the next Minecraft. Or is it the current next Minecraft? I'm not sure. What I am sure of, is that it's proper bo, and Will explains why.
