The Eurogamer Podcast

We talk Overwatch, Firewatch, Homefront and Hitman.

Hello you lot! We're back with our every-other-weekly video games podcast, if you fancy giving it a listen. Oh gosh, please give it a listen. I really like recording it.

This time I'm joined by the lovely Bertie Purchese to talk about the return of the Overwatch beta. It still looks like a very good video game, but now it also has glowing loot packs. More than that, it has glowing loot packs that have been designed by a company called Blizzard Entertainment. So that's us sorted for the foreseeable future.

Also on the podcast this week is Ian Higton, from somewhere near Birmingham. That's actually how I introduced him on the podcast, now that I think about it. I've turned into such a southern jerk. Brighton's ruined me. Anyway, he's got loads of video games to talk about, including the absolutely beautiful Firewatch, the not absolutely beautiful Homefront: The Revolution, and we both compare stories from our time with the Hitman beta.

Plenty of games chat. Hope you like it.

We're still on the hunt for some decent intro/outro music. Yeah, I know. Sorry!
