BritToid episode 3: Keep calm and throw down a beat

5:00 AM on 08.09.2010 // Hollie Bennett

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to BritToid, Episode 3! We are Destructoid's British-gaming-focused podcast that brings you some of Britain's finest (plus one German) accents and all the biggest news from the UK.

Listen this month as we kick off with the never easy to answer question of "what is your favourite game" as we all try to explain/justify our choice (I also may or may not descend into a hissy fit). We follow it up by taking another look at the UK sales chart, only to find we have no surprises that 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa continues to sell well, despite the robbery followed by a sexual assault that was England's exit.

We move swiftly onto the banning of the R4 in the UK, which of course none of us would ever own. We take a look at the Xbox 360 Slim which happens to be selling well in the UK despite the brutal pricing for Kinect. We end the show on Seto's orders as we take a look at the developer awards only to finish off by discussing the end of top PC magazine PC Zone.

Download the show here or check us out on iTunes!
