Astounding! It's the GamesRadar UK Podcast Question Box

Welcome to the GamesRadar UK Podcast Question Box, our bi-weekly regular receptacle for all of your ponderances and musings. If you have a question or a comment or an observation or a declaration of love/hate to direct at any or all members of the GRUK team, this is the place do to it. We will then answer/respond to as many of them as possible on next week's GamesRadar UK Podcast.

Here's a picture of the GRUK Podcast Question Box™. It's exciting, but will become even more exciting once it's full of your stuff:

What should you ask? Feel free to ask anything you want that's game-related (or even completely not game-related if you fancy). Potential hot topics of discussion for you to consider: news and announcements from this year's Gamescom, whether a fat plumber is better than a fast hedgehog, new releases like Sleeping Dogs and Darksiders II and 3DS XL... ask us about any of that stuff.

So yes. Questions. Put yours in our box via the comments below. Then feel free to peruse our treasury of previous aural delights by way of our archive of ye olde past GamesRadar UK podcasts. They're old, but by God, are they sexy. And don't forget there's an all-new podcast from the US brethren in the shape of RadioRadar to check out as well. Ears have never had it so good.

    Hey Chaps, My question is, what 2012 release are you most excited for? I'm close to wetting myself over Borderlands 2 and I was wrong in thinking the playing the show demo at Rezzed would help, it just made my craving worse. Much love xx P.S. non-gaming related inquiry but do any of you have pets? If so what animal/breed and what did you name it?

    Salutations, sexy men of GRUK! You may well have covered this in the shiny News section, but I was wondering what your thoughts on the reports of OnLive's difficulties are? Do you think that it was a flawed business model, or that it was just ahead of its time? I was personally very excited to hear about Sony's purchase of Gaikai due to the possibilities of being able to stream the entire back-catalogue of Sony games on a current-gen console, but it seems to me that the inability to stream current-gen games in true HD using a reliable net connection is what led to OnLive's apparent downfall. Keep up the sterling work, and please never let Cundy go on holiday again. Kisses all round and a cheeky nipple tweak for Justin. Rob Smart

    Yo Yo wiggidy woah whats happnin dawgs? With that out the way I must ask you fine fellows about frustration in games, more specifically what makes you angry when playing, personally I find that it works in phases, where I get irritated more the better I am at the game, up to the point where I stop caring about doing well. Do you find anger in games works in a similar way for you? and what do you do to prevent it? Christian Side hugs for all

    Hello manly men of GRUK, What do you guys think of the Oculus Rift? I was recently thinking about how virtual reality is due a comeback, and was very excited to hear about this new kickstarter. I remember playing the old VR machines in the arcades back in the 90s and, although it was fun to try it, the games weren't that great and the tech didn't follow your head movement too well. But now, with improved tech and a lot of game developer experience and expertise in motion control, I think it could stand a chance. I'm not suggesting it would replace conventional controllers but it could make some games a lot more immersive. Imagine being teabagged in an FPS - Master Chiefs rectangular package descending into your face as you stair upwards from the ground! Hugs and kisses to all Confident Sheep

    Good Day Men of GRUK What is a game you disliked at your first try, but ended up liking or even loving after your second or third playthrough? Mine is Fallout 3, it took me 3 damm tries before I got the game.
  • PrimalWrath - August 17, 2012 3:34 p.m.

    Alreet chaps. You're all superheroes, congratulations! What's your superhero name and superpower? P.S. I usually like to have a topical, thought provoking enquiry at the ready for your fabulous podcast, but I've been caught unawares by your unpredictable, Solid Snake-like question box this week and didn't have much time to think of anything. So yeah... Superheroes...
  • Adwil24 - August 17, 2012 3:21 p.m.

    Hey Team GR, With the festive season fast approaching, I would like to know what do you get a Wookie for Christmas, if he's already got a comb?
  • DarkWarrior - August 17, 2012 11:12 a.m.

    hello gorgeous men of games radar glad to have you guys back unloading your lovely vocal sex into our ears once more, pause for cundy sex moan on with my question, if you were the hero or villain in your very own game, what super power or batman type futuristic gadget would you use to bash in your foes
  • ithurtstopoop - August 17, 2012 10:34 a.m.

    Greetings purveyors of whimsical mirth I can't help but notice your question box look strikingly familiar? Recently Ive been restarting a lot of my fav games (imfamous2, red dead redemption, squeeks dreams etc) only to get a few hours in and get completely bored and move onto something else I notice Im a constant game restarter, always getting caught up in the fond memories of a game but when I actually come to replay it Im as bored as a nymphomaniac in a monastery. Is there something wrong with me (besides my ruptured anus)? And do you guys have any weird gaming habits? Keep it up (pause for Cundy's ooohhhhhhhh) Love the show
  • BladedFalcon - August 17, 2012 9:55 a.m.

    Hello there chaps! Recent events and articles have made me question... How does it feel to be so attached to a franchise/Mascot that hasn't really been truly good, innovative or groundbreaking for more than a decade? That of course, was not directed at anyone in particular. *coughs* I an seriousness though, do you guys have fondness and nostalgia for games/series that aren't objectively that good, or haven't been worthwhile in a while, yet you can't stop defending or justifying your love for it? Personally, I think mine could be my love for Zone of the Enders, a series that isn't very popular nor doesn't seem to be critically acclaimed. And I also know it has several issues, yet I have always loved it, and I am incredibly excited and hopeful for the recently announced ZoE 3 Greetings, salutations, and a big hug for each and every one of you!

    Afternoon lads. I'm just speccing up my next gaming rig and slobbering over the geek porn of graphics cards and ram. I moved away from pc gaming years ago after I realised that all I really wanted to do was play games properly - without fannying around. Seeing how far ahead top end pc's are next to current gen consoles finally got too much though so I'm going for it. Just thinking, next year the roll out of 4G is supposed to be happening, which should logically allow for all streaming technology to work as intended; full hd, low latency. Question is, will this spell the death of gaming PC's as well as physical consoles? All gaming will effectively be streamed from monster gaming rigs meaning that all you'll really require is a big screen and a connection. The world's about to change. Any point in dropping 2k on new kit this year? Also. Get EG Expo sorted :)

    ello ello mates. This is a question probably best answered by Towelley I know that fighting games and strategy games and 1st/3rd person shooting games and pokemon have regular tournaments. I was wondering if racing games have tournaments and if any of you have ever participated in one. Just being curious since Towell loves his racing games. Hope you enjoyed gamescon. Keep on keeping on dudes
  • PleasantPig - August 17, 2012 8:08 a.m.

    'Sup, gang? This time I have two questions. Will you answer them both? Only time will tell. 1. Considering the resurgence in the popularity of PC as a gaming platform in recent times, do you think the late Future publication PC Zone died at an unfortunate time? Had it only hobbled along a bit longer, do you think that it could have thrived once more as the market continues to increase? 2. I sometimes write words about games on the internet (HIDEOUS PLUG:, and have recently started to slowly raise my blog's profile. As such, I've now received a good few review copies of games for free from devs. Admittedly, they are all smaller, independent downloadable titles, but it got me thinking - do you fellows remember the first game you received free of charge for reviewing purposes? Were you excited? Thanks a bunch for a great podcast, chaps. It never fails to make me happy. Hugs all round.
  • yumpig - August 17, 2012 8:01 a.m.

    Hey guys, Somehow only just got around to listening to last episode and I found your answers to the question on the horse-sized ducks/duck-sized horses simply magnificent! Think you could fit a 'would you rather?' section into the podcast? I guess you could make it game related in some way to you know... make it relevant but I'd definitely welcome it in any form. Cheers!
  • bennyboy1237 - August 17, 2012 8 a.m.

    Hail GR UK, My question to you is simple, if you could remove one gaming related concept or even company/developer what or who would it be?
  • into the sound - August 17, 2012 7:42 a.m.

    What are your predictions/apprehensions about the FFXIV remake? What does the new version have to accomplish in order to redeem its fallen predecessor?
  • KidJustKid - August 17, 2012 6:47 a.m.

    Hiya guys - Big un from me, becuase YOU MISSED A PODCAST AND GAVE ME SERIOUS WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS. Number 1 - Sony. Why the flying fuck did they do their big Vita showcase now at Gamescom and leave it to slowly bleed out between E3 and now? It's not as if they packed E3 with glorious amazingness (Wonderbook, ahem) and yet we get things that could have started saving it far earlier. Why would they do that? Number 2 - Ouya. Is it the Steambox? Number 3 - Square Enix. On all formats, Deus Ex: Human Revolution sold 2.6 million units. Another comparibly reviewed summer-2011 title, LA Noire, has sold 4.9 million units. Sleeping Dogs is out now, with worse reviews on aggregate, less hype and less of a reputation. What do Square have to do to get going again, or are they going to have to retract to core FF and KH franchises?
  • DevaSteve - August 17, 2012 5:43 a.m.

    How do you feel the internet will react the first time a kickstarter game runs out of money with no game to release?
  • BottleBank - August 17, 2012 5:33 a.m.

    Hi chaps, If i were a freelancer (i'm not yet), how would i go about submitting article ideas to the site/future games studio?? I ask because i have seen familiar names from the GR forums cropping up in the opinion sections of Xbox World and PSM. Thanks, keep up the good work. Chris
  • Ace Hole - August 17, 2012 5:30 a.m.

    Hi. What is fun? And do games have to be fun?
