This podcast is no longer being produced. For your latest fix check out The VideoGamer.com Podcast.

The VideoGamer.com editors get together to discuss all of the latest games. No random stories, no toilet humour and no smacking a saucepan with a wooden spoon - this is the show for gamers who like their podcasts to feature video games. If a more open discussion which vaguely touches on what's been happening in gaming is what you're after then you should check out the Free For All Podcast.

Each Monday you'll find a new edition of the Back on Topic Podcast. There's no gimmicks, just four guys offering honest opinions about the latest video game releases.

If you want to contact us about anything podcast related you can do so by sending an email to podcast@videogamer.com. Whether you want to suggest something for us to talk about or you want to moan about something we've said, we'd love to hear from you.

Time, we've been very busy getting stuff ready for E3 and it was a longer cast than normal anyway. Expect the questions to return once E3 is over.

Clockpunk@ chelskiboy247

Saving the podcast for during work tomorrow, but going by your answer to Seb above, any content purchased on a 360 has its DRM assigned to both that console and the profile of the purchaser. Any other profiles using that harddrive on that specific console can access the content (but not if you sign into Live on another console (even with that hard drive) and re-download the content). It is confusing, but works well when two of us enjoy the same games, and can both play DLC on our own profiles.

Great podcast guys and thanks for reading out my post, I still get a little buzz whenever I hear my name on the show (that's a bit weird isn't it :)).

Oh and by the way, in answer to Seb's query, even though the DLC was purchased and downloaded on my brother's profile I can still play it on mine. This is true for all DLC and downloadable games so I guess it saves onto the hard drive not onto the profile.
