Sitting in the all-new host's chair is good old Tom Champion. Joining him are Eurogamer.net operations director Tom Bramwell and deputy editor Ellie Gibson.

This week, there's some chat about the hilarious new multiplayer mode in Duke Nukem Forever which involves hitting women. We also address the hot topic of whether Brammers is a misogynist. (Spoiler: no.)

Just to clarify, after the podcast was recorded Gearbox's Randy Pitchford published this Tweet: "Get it right, folks! In the DNF MP game "Capture the Babe", Duke can give the girl a love smack on the booty - not face". Phew, that's all right then! Because of course the bruises don't show.

Then we discuss the dreaded FarmVille (Champo's idea, honest), whether it would ever work on Xbox Live and whether anyone would want it to. After that it's off to Sandy Isle. This week reader Mike Smith tells us the video games he'd like to be shipwrecked with, and we offer up a mixture of approval and disparaging comments.

The second-ever Metabet winner is announced and there's your chance to win a copy of Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. And finally, Elizabeth welcomes Roy to Lower Loxley while David and Ruth do blood tests to identify the cows infected with Johne's disease.
