    From the community: Chicken Dippers

    x25Killa, in the PC Gamer community chat, pointed us to this: one of the more absurd opportunities for rampant destruction Mercenaries 2 provides. We share, because we figure you could do with a giggle, too.

    New ideas for war games

    "War has changed..." muses Snake in the opening of MGS4. But it hasn't really, has it? We're still blowing up anti-aircraft guns, traipsing through muddy fields and taking listless pop shots at vague, Nazi-shaped blobs crouching in blown-out barns. And it's the developers' fault. They assume we all want to be infantry, because ground troops get to run about and shoot things. But there's much more to an army than that; thousands of people doing a million different jobs all contribute to a conflict. Why don't we ever see the battle from their perspective? Why must we always be a fresh-faced grunt in a squad of racical stereotypes? Here are some ideas off the top of our heads that we reckon would instantly make for a more interesting war game.

    When Mike returned from Leipzig we sat him in front of a microphone and asked him to describe the show to make sure you got the inside scoop, first. Unfortunately our wonderful computers thought otherwise. So here's our second attempt with one small hitch... No Mike.

    Play us at GTAIV

    We'll be playing GTAIV online from 4pm today, so get involved. As before, there'll be a prize for the best player. Show us what you're made of. Our PSN name is PSM3uk. UPDATE: Brilliantly, because of the security settings on our connection at work, we can't join or set up games in GTA properly with all of you. The only person we could get a game with was Big Boss, and that's not really fair, is it? Although we did enjoy killing him with a rifle. Anyway, apologies to everyone who tried to join, and apologies to Trahildar; we tried to connect to your games, but it wasn't having it. We'll arrange another online challenge this month at a different date, and on a different (tested) game. keep your eyes on the blog.

    PC Gamer Podcast 19: Gentleman's Relish

    Ross, Tim, Tom and Craig gathered this month to discuss the ways in which Spore is good and the ways in which it is not, whether game science could work in real life, whether Tom's book is any good, and read out an actual paper letter from a reader.
