Ocean Software gave us some memorable games back in the 8 and 16 bit era of gaming. With the passing of one of its co-founders David Ward we talk about some Ocean greats. We also cover the end of the line for the Apple iPod, an expensive way to stop cheats on N64 Goldeneye and could we be about to see an unfinished Duke Nukem game?
All this and our community question of the week.
