This week's podcast has turned out to have a distinctly games-flavoured tinge to it, with the team discussing the huge financial support the OUYA open source Android console received on funding website Kickstarter. And they look at whether the project can muscle its way into a market dominated by Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft for so long.

Steam has recently announced that it will be adding non-games software to its downloadable catalogue, so the Linters mull over whether this is a good move or not.

And finally, the feature this week looks at the hottest games coming up in the next few weeks and beyond, including, gasp, a new Fighting Fantasy Gamebook by Ian Livingstone. Admittedly, only over-30s will appreciate that...

Former Gamesmaster presenter and editor of news Rik Henderson is joined by editor of reviews and presenter of Sky One's Gadget Geeks Ian Morris, and contributing editor Hunter Skipworth.
