IGN UK Podcast #534: God of Meat

Both Dale and Matt have finished Final Fantasy 7 Remake, so who better to tell you all about it? Joe has been knee-deep in Cooking Mama conspiracy theories which he needs to offload, and Cardy has been playing more Persona 5 Royal and watching football stuff. Some things never change. There's also a selection of differing opinions about the PS5's DualSense controller and a nice little bit of general next-gen chat as well. There's a 3-way Endless Search that goes down to the wire, along with all your lovely feedback as well. Remember, if you want to get in touch with the podcast, please do: ign_ukfeedback@ign.com

IGN UK Podcast #504: Norman Reedus - Full Body Edition

Tokyo Game Show is happening right now, bringing big revelations about some of Japan's biggest games. So you know what that means: long chats about what the hell is going on in Death Stranding. Joe, Cardy and Matt discuss Kojima's latest revelations, and it looks like we finally know what you do in the game. There's more than Thermos babies to discuss, though. We've been playing a duo of delights in Gears 5 and Catherine: Full Body, plus the slightly less delightful Daemon X Machina. And in film chat, we discuss Brad Pitt's journey to the far side of the galaxy in the serene and existential Ad Astra. And, as ever, there's another thrilling edition of The Endless Search.

IGN UK Podcast #513: We Can Catch Pokemon in the UK But Can't Watch The Mandalorian

This week we have special superstar guest Sydnee Goodman join Cardy and Joe to tell them all about a frankly bizarre sounding childhood filled with pun-slinging cartoon dogs, pineapple haired teens and clipping her own ears back to create leprechaun ears. It's a wild ride. Cardy's been playing that new Pokemon Sword and Shield game so talks about that for a bit, plus the trailer showdown of the century is here as Sonic the Hedgehog takes on Scooby-Doo. The Endless Search returns as we take another dive into the deep lagoon of Hideo Kojima's tweets. And remember, if you want to get in touch with the podcast, please do: ign_ukfeedback@ign.com.

We also have an extended interview with the creators of the Witcher Netflix show plus a sprinkling of spoiler chat at the end.  Joe has also blessed us with the cryptic quiz that he played with his family at Christmas, meaning he has now infuriated a second set of people with it.

IGN UK Podcast #515: New Films, Old Games, and a Worried Phone Call

Dale, Cardy and Joe - the Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci of podcasting - have convened this week to pour praise on The Irishman, pour slightly more cryptic praise on Parasite, check in on Death Stranding and Jedi: Fallen Order, and then talk some Mandalorian spoilers at the very end. The Endless Search brings back the insanely difficult quote translation game in nicer form, which is fun. Also there's a touching bit where Joe's dad call to check if he's alive. Enjoy.

IGN UK Podcast #509: Ms. Marvel and the Tissue of Eternal Nightmares

In this week's thrilling installment of the IGN UK Podcast, Dale has a Halloween-themed Cadbury's Creme Egg that he's desperate to eat. But will he get to the gooey centre before Cardy takes it for himself? You'll have to listen to the whole 'cast to find out.  Thankfully that shouldn't be too much of an arduous task, as there's plenty to discuss. Matt's been to EGX to play Marvel's Avengers, including hands-on time with a new character; the super-stretchy Ms. Marvel. Dale's also been previewing games this week, with thoughts on Need for Speed Heat and WWE 2K20. Cardy's also got a few extra words to say about Disco Elysium, the detective game that's captured the hearts and minds of almost all the UK team, and Matt's got some thoughts about Zombieland: Double Tap.  PG Tips returns for this week's Endless Search, and of course there's more feedback (as well as the questions discovered in Dale's Twitter mentions).

IGN UK Podcast #516: Todd Phillips Interview and Our Pitches for DC Movies

There's not much going on with video games at the moment so this week Cardy, Joe and Matt talk all about them movies. There's new Bond and Black Widow trailers to dissect, plus Matt has seen 1917 and tells us why its an absolute banger. Joe got the chance to speak with Joker director Todd Phillips which inspired us to come up with our own pitches for DC movies, the directors we'd like to see make them and why Shaun Williamson aka Barry from Eastenders should play every role in the DC universe. The Endless Search is a verified nail biter this week as we take on a new game. Please enjoy.

There's frankly too many video games and films coming out next year, but Cardy, Matt and Dale have done their best to cover all of them. Sorry if we missed any, but I feel like we talked enough. Too much even, you be the judge. We didn't even have enough time to talk about TV. There's probably loads of that as well.

It's Football Day: Episode 1

Some of us here at the IGN UK office spend more time than is healthy - both professionally and medically - talking about Football Manager. That's why we've finally given into our desires and created a spin-off podcast all about the newest game in the series, Football Manager 2020. Welcome to It's Football Day, our twice-monthly show all about the greatest spreadsheets on this sweet Earth of ours. It's also a tiny bit about Charlie Hunnam's accent in Green Street. Join Cardy, Joe and Dale as we introduce our teams, our objectives, our first signings, and possibly even our FUTURE DESTINY. Fair warning: if you don't like football, or Football Manager, this might be completely impenetrable (but it might make an amazing sleep aid). We've also got 5 copies of Football Manager 2020 to give away - make sure to listen through to the end for that. And remember, if you want to get in touch the address is: ign_ukfeedback@ign.com.

IGN does lots of Game the Year Award categories, but we just can't cover everything. That's where IGN UK comes in, to dish out awards for the stuff no one else will. Like the game that makes kids call you lame on the tube, or the game that makes you feel smarter than you ever actually will be, or the game that work made us frightened of. All of those awards and more are handed out in this retrospective edition of the podcast. Also, Joe tells a cautionary story about having his legs laughed at.

We also had not one, but three of our favourite Endless Search games with the amazing Code:Marla doing a live performance of jingle (yes, they did it 3 times!). A great time was had by all, but mostly by us! Thank you so much to all the amazing people who traveled so far and helped make this event so special. Here's to another 500 episodes!

IGN UK Podcast #523: Final Fantasy 7 Remake Hype

This week on the IGN UK Podcast, Dale and Matt get very hype about all their nostalgic memories being made anew thanks to a brand new Final Fantasy 7 Remake trailer. We talk how to pronounce Jenova, Red XIII's voice, the gloom of the Shinra building... everything you could think of, aside from Cloud's cross dressing, which we somehow overlooked. That's why he's in the thumbnail for this episode: he may not get a mention, but he's certainly not forgotten. Jesse's on the show too, and has been playing the Disintegration beta with some of the other IGN guys. There's mixed thoughts a-plenty on that one, but with a sprinkling of hope. There's also some discussion about Warcraft 3 Reforged, the remaster of the classic 2002 Blizzard RTS that's both a fantastic visit to the past and a failure to meet a lofty promise. As ever, there's also a cool listener-submitted game and our responses to your feedback.
