Nintendo! Skyrim! Prey 2! Soundwave!

Of course it is. You're on the podcast page. FFS.

Tom Champion is your butcher, Eurogamer editor of directed operations Tom Bramwell is your meat, and news editor Wesley Yin-Poole is the bit that flaps around and they put in the bin, hoping no-one notices.

This week's hot topic: Nintendo's next home console. What is it? What do we want? What's up with touch screen controllers? And, will Harry meet Sally?

After that, Tom Bramwell, fresh from his trip to Utah (yes, I know now why you cry/that Utah is a state not a city) to see a whole bunch of Bethesda games, gives The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, Prey 2, Rage, Brink and Hunted the going over with a vocal tooth comb.

Sandy Isle Games follows. This week's selection comes from a reader whose name I forget because all I can think about are battle formations and defensive formations in Clash of Heroes. He picked an Amiga game, though. I know that much.

Then it's time for Metabet. For Portal 2! Oh, and we finally decide which is most famous: Transformers or the sodding shipping report, as if there was ever any doubt.
