The Explosive Alan Podcast
Join Dan, Ash, Gareth and Simon as they jabber through the games they're playing, tear through the week's most interesting news stories, attempt to outdo each other in weekly challenges, and invite the community to share their opinions on heavyweight gaming issues.

Our four half-baked heroes return for more news, challenges and '#Bantz'. GTA and Pokemon feature (again), as does the latest on Mass Effect 4, Star Wars Battlefront 3, a Zelda film, Watch_Dogs delays and the team attempting to recreate famous gaming sound effects from memory.

This week's intro lyrics:

Explosive Alan Podcast x 3 / Games talk and challenges / In an hour / It’s four men who act like they’re fifteen (We’re really rad!) / They’re fully-grown adults it’s obscene (Hey – not that bad!) / If you want some inane chat / These grown up boys are here for that / Explosive Alan Podcast x 2 / They use language that is far from clean (You’re a fucking twat) / Dan’s a challenge cheat, Simon Chong’s a Sonic geek (I even like Unleashed) / Gareth Wild is frequently rude (Tell your mum) / Ash Denton’s got a grumpy attitude (Can I go home now?) / Explosive Alan Podcast x 3 / Games talk and challenges / In an hour

We want to be the very best / Podcast of all time / To make them is our real test / And making these words rhyme
We will blather on and on / Talking constant shit / About games and how our name's / Too big for this next bit
(ExAlPod! Don't make no sense) / See what we mean? / Our name is a travesty / (ExAlPod!) / Oh, it's our podcast / With a name we must extend / (ExAlPod! Still makes no sense) / We know it's wrong / The full name is far too long / It's The Explosive Alan / Podcast! / (Gotta cram it in) / Gotta cram it in!

Valve made three announcements, none of which were the one anyone actually wanted. Still, Steam Box, Steam OS and its peculiar controller are all big news, so we decided to mull over their potential for success in our already crowded living rooms. Before that, however, we've got a special report from the Eurogamer Expo featuring Joe and Scott from BitSocket, more rapid-fire news and yet another fruit-based challenge.
