The Unlimited Hyperbole Christmas Special


[ download this episode ]

This Christmas I’ve bought Unlimited Hyperbole back for a special episode, during which I threw the microphone into the crowd and asked you, the listeners, to send in submissions telling me the answer to one question.

If you could change one thing about your involvement with games, what would it be?

I was astonished by the responses which came back and I’ve presented them all here as straightforwardly as I can, with as little droning and editing from me as possible. Settle in for a longer, rougher and more optimistic episode of Unlimited Hyperbole than ever before, with submissions from the following delightful people and a download mirror provided by Split Screen

The Complete Hyperbole…


Download The Complete Hyperbole – 260MB

Little bit of housekeeping in advance of the Unlimited Hyperbole Christmas Special. As of today all Unlimited Hyperbole episodes are hosted on Dropbox and it’s no longer possible to subscribe through iTunes or RSS. Sorry, but there are logistical reasons which make it necessary.  

That’s an inconvenience, so to make up for it I’ve compiled all four seasons into a single album you can download in one go. If you’ve not listened to Unlimited Hyperbole and want to quickly get up to speed, this is the way to go.

Also: I’ll be at Videobrains this month, as will several contributors to the show. I’ve spoken there before and it’s great, so come say Hi!

If you could change one thing about your involvement with games, what would it be?

No, really. I want to know. Unlimited Hyperbole is returning for a Christmas Special, ‘Change’ is the theme and you’re invited to take part.

Here’s what you need to do.

Updated Hyperbole…


Unlimited Hyperbole has been officially on-hold for a while, but nevertheless I wanted to give an update about some things that have happened with the show recently.

Firstly, I was persuaded to keep the show going in some capacity.  I’ve promised to do at least one more episode and I’m currently planning it as a Christmas special, though what the theme will be and who the guest could be, I have no idea. Let me know your suggestions on Twitter!

Secondly, over the last 12 months I allowed the old Soundcloud account to lapse. That caused some episodes to become unavailable or reach their download limit. Both were a pain, so I’ve rehosted all episodes on Dropbox. That’s broken the old RSS feed and iTunes subscription, but you can at least listen to and download all episodes easily.

Limited Hyperbole…


Last year, I had an idea. Like most of my ideas it was borne out of frustration and dissatisfaction; it was arrogant and melodramatic and took itself too seriously. Eventually it became Unlimited Hyperbole, a podcast which is still best described in those three terms.

Now, after four seasons and twenty episodes, Unlimited Hyperbole is finished. I set myself the goal of being nominated for Best Podcast in the Games Media Awards and I said I’d stop if I didn’t make it. I didn’t, so the show’s over.

A few people have asked why I set that goal and why I’m stopping the show so suddenly. I figure I owe those people an explanation.
