4: The cheapskate episode.
Welcome to the 4th full episode of Clod of War! The podcast for that subset of the human population who love video games AND who are arthritic buffoons. This time around Dan, Ian and Christi get to grips with the good, the bad and the ugly of free to play. We wax lyrical about Warframe and PS Now, rejoice at the return of Shuhei, and Ian gets a bit "funny" about Demon Gaze ( although to be fair he's more interested in the dungeon crawling). If you're listening on the Anchor FM app then don't forget you can send us some lovely applause and even better, voice messages. If they''re interesting or entertaining enough, we might even include them in the next episode! Our excellent theme tune, "Pixel Party" Music is by Eric Matyas, www.soundimage.org

2: E3 2018 pt 2 - Sony, Nintendo, the end of gamer christmas
Welcome to the latest episode of Clod of War! The podcast for that subset of the human population who love games AND who are arthritic buffoons. This time round Ian, Dan and Christi pick over the carcass of the rest of E3 2018. Could Sony and Nintendo provide an answer to the surprisingly strong Microsoft conference? It should be no surprise that our three hopeless chumps have some fairly strong opinions on the matter. We'll be aiming to produce a new episode every two weeks from now on; at least until the next big conference rears its noggin. If you're listening on the Anchor FM app then don't forget you can send us some lovely applause and even better, voice messages. If they''re interesting or entertaining enough, we might even include them in the next episode! Our excellent theme tune, "Pixel Party" Music is by Eric Matyas, www.soundimage.org

1: E3 2018 pt 1 ( Microsoft conference and more)
Welcome to the very first Episode of the Clod of War podcast! The podcast for that subset of the human population who love games AND who are arthritic buffoons. This time round Ian, Dan and Christi mostly look at the start of e3 and pick the bones of the Microsoft conference clean of all the info they found interesting. Plus, they chat about the games they're currently digging to round things off. Our excellent theme tune, "Pixel Party" Music is by Eric Matyas, www.soundimage.org P.S. apologies for munging Crackdown into Crackdown 3. Christi was rusty. :)
