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.

Much like legendary New York nightclub Studio 54, episode 54 of our podcast is a tribute to ludicrous excess, with scene kids, celebrities and artists rubbing noses and a lot more besides. You can't hear them because they're all in the room next door, but we assure you that they're definitely there and having the best time. Party monsters Dan, Simon, Ash and Gareth are on hand to talk you through their feelings on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Soma, Guitar Hero Live and Until Dawn, as well as news of Nintendo NX, Star Wars Battlefront, Duke Nukem 3D's long-lost Mega Drive port and PewDiePie's new YouTube Red show. Also! They attempt to guess the final words of ten poorly translated Japanese games and debate the merits of user-generated content even though the show's practically built on it.

It's a case of diminishing returns this week as the show sheds an Ash in addition to the still-absent Gareth. We think they might be both down that well we keep meaning to board up. Give it three weeks and it'll just be sound of wind whistling through the office.

We're joined instead by Kevin Joyce from VRFocus.com, who tolerates our usual nonsense admirably. Such nonsense includes talk of Pokémon party pooping, Guitar Hero DLC confusion, the future of 'walking simulators' and a game of Who Wants To Win A Bag of Air?. 

If you're reading this before midday on 14 October, there's still time to vote for our live episode in the Player's Choice category of the Games Media Awards. Follow this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GMA_PlayersChoice or do a Googles for 2015 GMA Player's Choice. Thank you!
