PvZ! Fahrenheit! Technical things!

Happy Tuesday, readers! Or perhaps not so happy - yes, it's time once again for a new instalment of the Podcast!

Once again Tom Champion is your host. He's joined by deputy editor Ellie Gibson, top newsmonger Rob Purchese and amazing Eurogamer technomage Craig Munro.

This week the podcast takes place from an exciting and exotic new location, i.e. Rupert's office. That's right, you can barely hear the servers humming in the background (and you can properly hear the podcast, hopefully).

Ellie talks about her latest favourite game, Plants vs. Zombies for iPhone, while Craig discusses Fahrenheit (yes, he's got a bit of catching up to do). We have a good old chat the news and almost an actual row about EA's Project Ten Dollar idea. Plus: the stunning debut of Bertie's Tim Westwood impression.

There's also a special Q&A session with Craig, where present him with all five of the technical questions YOU wanted us to ask. Find out about plans for the App, why there's no hyperlink button, what Craig's favourite image format is and more.

On top of all that there's perennial favourite [check this - Ed] Forum Affairs, some whining about boss battles plus an all-new and hopefully-less-boring opportunity to win a downloadable game. Enjoy!

Background reading!

The Podcast is published at 3pm GMT every Tuesday. Join us next week for more yammering on, including Tom B's excuse for not being here this week.
