All rounded off by the show-stopping God of War shaped dessert followed by a mad rush to actually pre-order a console. Nintendo also announced a couple of new Monster Hunter games for the Switch that has had Joe hungry for more, but for now he and Matt have had the chance to feast on Immortals Fenyx Rising and let you know why you should be excited. Meanwhile, Cardy continues to binge-snack on Avengers. There's a tasty new Endless Search this week as well, along with your nourishing feedback as always.

It is time for our most ill-advised one-off yet, our long-promised Drowning Special. We received literally dozens of emails about the funnier side of not being able to breathe underwater, and we're reading our favourites. What a time to be alive.

There's also time to discuss how relaxing Animal Crossing is looking after the hefty Nintendo Direct this week.

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.

It's Football Day: Episode 6

This time on our Football Manager spin-off, Cardy is, somehow, on the most familiar ground. His mogul-backed Magpies are on the march, while Dale ups sticks for LA to begin the reign of the Cancun Corona Colts, and Joe embarks on the most terrifying FM journey of all - unemployment.

As you might expect, we're all at home for Christmas right now, which means we're probably seasons and seasons into our Football Manager careers.

The Endless Search is a verified nail biter this week as we take on a new game. Please enjoy.

It's Football Day: Episode 2

We're back for another 90 minutes (that was unintentional, we just talk a lot) of chat about our burgeoning Football Manager careers. Joe, Dale and Cardy have finished their second seasons at Betis, Coventry and Rochdale, with varying levels of GREAT SUCCESS. We also have an untitled little Football Manager game, and some incredible stories of managements past you sent through to us.

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 #514: Accidental Star Wars Special

Look, Disney owns everything now. It more than likely owns one of us on the show and we just don't know about it - Dale, probably, he's the most marketable. We can't do anything about that, so here's a podcast where talk about some of its High Quality Star Wars Products in great detail. On top of that, we've got a Star Wars-themed Endless Search, a bit of Star Wars-themed feedback and, er, someone who doesn't like the idea of our Football Manager spin-off. Fair enough, really. And remember, if you want to get in touch with the podcast, please do: ign_ukfeedback@ign.com.

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 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.

Look, we know you're expecting Death Stranding chat this week... and that's exactly what you're getting. Dale and Joe's impressions of Kojima's latest is succulently sandwiched between two beautifully baked slices of wholemeal in the shape of Cardy and Alex's trials with Modern Warfare's Spec Ops, and excitement for Overwatch 2. Go On Name Them makes a glorious return and the Cardy's Football Manager team is revealed in a podcast climax that the world has never heard the like of, and likely never will again...
08/11/191h 16m

IGN UK Podcast #511: Gooigi Is Gaming's Greatest Dump

Look, we know you're expecting Death Stranding chat this week... but we're not allowed to talk about that. Come back! We promise we have so much more!

This week's Endless Search also includes a major last-minute twist for the second week in a row. Is this the best feature ever? I'm starting to thiiiink so...

IGN UK Podcast #510: Terminator Episode VI - A New Hope

Could it be real? Could there really be another good Terminator film in the world? It seems so, and that's one of the plethora of topics on the table in this week's IGN UK Podcast. Matt's seen it, and he's got a few thoughts on why - for better and for worse - it's the best one since T2. Not only that, but we've got an interview with stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton on the show, too. Before all that, though, there's more to discuss. Star Wars! The Outer Worlds! Watchmen! Big hefty topics that require big old hefty chats. And that's exactly what Matt, Cardy, and Joe have for you in episode 510. There's also a truly thrilling edition of The Endless Search with a first act twist that you wont want to miss, plus your feedback.

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). 
18/10/191h 5m

IGN UK Podcast #508: Insane Detective Posse

It's podcast day, and Joe, Jesse, and Matt have come together to discuss what may be their game of the year: Disco Elysium. Never heard of it? Then you're in the right place for hugely enthusiastic, incredible weird chat about this massive, strange detective RPG.  If RPGs where you get into arguments with your neck tie aren't your thing, then there's also plenty of discussion about the two big co-op shooters of the moment - Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint - and Joe's been putting Nintendo's new fitness gizmo Ring Fit to the test.   And as if that wasn't enough, there's also a hilariously difficult new game for the Endless Search, and some delightful feedback. 
11/10/191h 11m

IGN UK Podcast #507: Joker Spoilers and Spoil-y Trailers

It's a podcast of two halves this week. In the first half, we talk through a whole heap of new film trailers we've been watching recently, cover Apex Legends' new map (and all it's lovely colours, for some reason), and play another lovely game of Mr. Lister's Quiz Shootout. But the second half is deeper, darker, spoilier. We've just seen Joker, and Joe, Cardy and Matt convened to talk it through in it's entirety. Listen at your own risk.

IGN UK Podcast #506: Untitled Podcast Game

Cardy, Dale, and Matt sit down at the UK Podcast table this week to discuss a plethora of delights, starting with the exploits of Mr. Joaquin Phoenix in this year's other other big comic book movie, Joker. Matt and Cardy have also been to see Rian Johnson's latest, Knives Out, and discuss why it's a great pallet cleanser following The Last Jedi. There's also some quickfire takes on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's beta, The Last of Us Part 2, Borderlands 3, Sayonara Wild Heats, and the beautiful chaos that is Untitled Goose Game. 
27/09/191h 7m

IGN UK Podcast #505: The Legend of Volta

Cardy & Joe have both been reviewing games this week so gather round the podcast table for layers of critical thought. Link's Awakening has been remade for the Switch so Joe tells you why that's a banger and Cardy has done FIFA again so explains what's up with the footballs this year. Borderlands 3 also gets its fair share of debate time. Meanwhile, Dale is convinced that new Netflix show "The I-Land" has ripped him off and is out to prove it. Joe's got a list-based quiz for the Endless Search as well as plenty of time for your feedback.
20/09/191h 5m

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.
13/09/191h 1m

IGN UK Podcast #503: IT Chapter Two and Other Scaries

Matt has seen IT Chapter Two and not only does tell us his feelings, but he also shares his interview he did with the film's director, Andy Muschietti. But that's not the only scaries we have this week. In what feels like an early halloween, we have three spooky games to bang on about. Dale has played Blair Witch and has a lot of thoughts about the game and the history of the series. Jesse talks about finishing Man of Medan three times and Dale has also tried out the latest PS4 FMV game, Erica. We also have a detour chat about the Star Wars prequels. And of course, there's this week edition of The Endless Search.
06/09/191h 19m

IGN UK Podcast #502: Sherlock Holmes and the Bees of Love

If you aren't from the UK, you might not be aware that we aren't getting Disney+ along with the rest of the world. We have some stuff to say about that.  Once we've gone through the stages of grief, we have time to talk about The Mandalorian, new Disney and Star Wars series, and Control. We even squeezed in a chat with Brian Froud, the genius behind the many, many designs of creatures in The Dark Crystal, and its new Netflix Prequel, Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Thanks Brian!

That's why you get big hunky chunks of Death Stranding, Disintegration, Marvel's Avengers, The Endless Cylinder and more. Also, Joe turned Farming Simulator into an actual game! (Sorry, Germany).

Also joining in for a little bit of a chat is My Friend Pedro's developer, Victor Agren, better known as DeadToast. He knows a thing or two about good grenade launcher sounds, so you'll want to listen in for that. As well as good video game chat we've got bad film chat, too, as the guys have seen a few dreadful movies recently that need dissecting. And to finish it all off, there's a tense game of the Endless Search that'll (probably not) go down in history.

IGN UK Podcast #466: The Alternative Film Awards 2018

IGN will shortly be revealing its movie of the year, along with all our other end of year awards, but they won't tell you the film that had the most on-the-nose song choice or the movie that used a baby like a bomb to great effect.

IGN UK Podcast #465: The Alternative Games Awards 2018

As the end of the year approaches, we've become remarkably introspective, and retrospective, on this week's IGN UK Podcast. Yes, lots of people will be dishing out award over the coming month, including IGN's proper ones, but these right here are real awards. Don't worry no one will read this, so that's a little secret between us and you. Don't tell.

IGN UK Podcast #464: The Games Awards Got Got

Anyone who's anyone in games media were at The Games Awards in LA this week. Except us.

We've also been playing a brilliant game called  Don't Get Got, and there's a brief Coverwatch update, which let's face it – that's why you're here.

IGN UK Podcast #461: Pigs in Blankets

This week, Gav, Rory and Joe discuss the finer points of Sony's E3 no-show, and then somehow start discussing the madness that is Rory's (theoretical) house. That candy machine sure is loud. That's not to mention our chats about The Sinner season 2, Pokemon Let's Go's brilliant walking animations, and Smaug's anatomy. But is any of that as exciting as the fact that we are, finally, going to be showing The Prestige in a real cinema, and then recording a live special? No it bloody isn't - please come along!

There's also a full-on spoiler discussion about the new Halloween film and as if that wasn't enough we're joined by THREE special guests.  You'll find lovely chats with Julius Avery and J.J. Abrams, the men responsible for bringing awesome new WW2 horror film Overlord to our cinemas, and we're also joined by the one and only Jamie Lee Curtis!

26/10/181h 20m

IGN UK Podcast #457: Bad Times at the El Lordran

Due to tangible demand, the IGN UK podcast is BACK! This week we've mostly been playing Dark Souls on Switch, getting the willies stuffed up us by The Haunting of Hill House and watching Nicolas Cage go berzerkoid.  We also watched Bad Times at the El Royale which we didn't have any particularly strong feelings about either way but sometimes we come up with the title of the podcast before we record...so....yeah.  Remember if you want to get in touch with the podcast, please do: ign_ukfeedback@ign.com
19/10/181h 20m

IGN UK Podcast #456: Waluigi's Fallout Bunker

It's a packed week on the podcast, as Gav, Dale and Joe convene to discuss why Fallout 76 is best when it's not being a Fallout game, why game maps are getting too big, what Observation is, and why Joe might be mentioned on Waluigi's Wikipedia page.

21/09/181h 5m

IGN UK Podcast #452: Beware the Boat People

Don't go near the water. Sage advice, whether you live on an island surrounded by sharks or, worse still, live in Manhattan. Have you seen the freaks on the boats in Marvel's Spider-Man? It's enough to give anyone nightmares.
14/09/1845m 40s

IGN UK Podcast #451: Jabba's Face is Well Expensive

It's double quiz week on the UK podcast. Why? Because Cardy had already written Boss Keyword Countdown before we realised a massive prop auction might make good quiz content. You're welcome. Also: American Vandal, Hollow Knight, and all the celebrities you people live near and watch on the daily.

We stretch the truthfulness of our podcast's name this week, as Joe and Cardy are joined by Tina and Andrew from the IGN San Francisco office.

Plus, a new and exciting all-American Boss Keyword Countdown!
17/08/1857m 9s

IGN UK Podcast #447: Shawshank the Pig

Joe's got all the behind-the-scenes deets (and slightly contrarian opinions) on Cyberpunk 2077, Dale and Simon have been on a romantic little Forza holiday to a Bond lair, and we talk our way through the latest Mario Tennis. Also, there's a bit where Joe goes mad because they're putting Neanderthal brain bits into crab robots. Plus, the return of Boss Keyword Countdown, even though Rory isn't here. Oh!

To celebrate the release of Deadpool 2 we've gone mutant MAD and run down some of the weirdest mutant powers from the X-Men comics.  We've also got Josh Brolin aka Cable aka the man with the naughtiest finger click in the galaxy for a big old interview where he does impressions of Marvel head Kevin Feige, questions Gav's British credentials and tells us about lies he's told.  There's also one of the highest scoring Keyword Countdown's we've had in ages.  Let us know what you think of the interview and Deadpool 2 which is out now.

20/04/181h 3m

IGN UK Podcast 430: God of War After Dark

This week Krupa's been playing that new God of War, but to be honest that bit mainly ends up being about the canonical status of what happened in Hollyoaks Afer Dark. If you don't know what that is, it's like naughty Hollyoaks. If you don't know what Hollyoaks is – well, there's no helping you. We've seen a little bit of Infinity War, but can't talk about it, so enjoy that. And enjoy the really, really hard Keyword Countdown.

IGN UK Podcast #427: Evan Pettiwhisker, God of War

We've played games, games, games this week. God of War, A Way Out and Ni No Kuni 2 make up the big hitters, before good old Football Manager comes around again, this time even in quiz form.
