    Mooshon wins this week's amazing game giveaway (a copy of Rage on 360). Thanks everyone for taking part. Don't forget to try again next time. You could be winner.

    Crikey, cheers matt! Haven't won anything since Look-In magazine 1986. Unless there's an office Batman/Battlefield going spare we might need to crown another lucky punter though. BlueScorpion91 is a good lad.

    my worst christmas gaming moment was when i was 9 years old i recieved the goldeneye N64 bundle that i had wished for but to my horror there was no game cartridge in the box i cried. So on boxing day was a return to the currys it was bought (i mean santas grotto kids) where they had my goldeneye game still sat behind the counter whoever forgot to put it in the box ruined christmas they are a 1997 grinch. Not nice spending boxing day or any other day going to a retail park near bolton as you can imagine.

    My worst Christmas memory is pissing myself during the Queen Gohma boss fight in Ocarina of Time. I waited until I beat her before going to clean myself up.
  • BlueScorpion91 - January 1, 2012 5:18 p.m.

    Now you see, that is just a lie, isn't it. Just a flat-out lie.
  • mijetman - January 3, 2012 9:08 a.m.

    I assure you that it is absolutely true. I didn't piss myself because I was scared, I really needed the toilet but didn't want to stop playing.

    Excellent Podcast as ever guys! My worst memory would probably be the year my main present, which I thought to be a PSP, was a couple of cleverly positioned books. =(

    You lads' continuing belief that Nintendo has turned everything around and is back to making core gamers happy still baffles me. Journos have said the last few years that the upcoming year Nintendo would blow everyone away, but we keep just getting a couple decent new versions of very old franchises. I'd love to see how Nintendo games would fare on systems with some power and proper controllers, maybe I'd find the love that I lost so long ago.

    My worst chrstmas memory was winning a very average game on a christmas special of a gaming podcast :) Only joking guys, love you xxxx

    My worst Christmas memory was being dragged out for a walk by my parents on Christmas morning before I'd had the chance to beat the skateboarding course record on Spyro: Year of the Dragon on PS1. No more Twisted Lemons or Gnasty Gnorcs for me that morning :(

    The worst Christmas moment for me was when i got the last copy of Resident Evil on the PS1 from Game only to find out it would crash on the first door. That day i cried like a little girl.

    Merry Christmas to you too GRUK, and to everyone who reads this :). My worst gaming Christmas memory was getting my first HD telly, it breaking 2 days after. Then 3 days after that, me mam brings me another, only to find out that was a return-telly and was full of scratches, so me mam and dad just got a refund, so I still couldn't play Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty 4 or The Simpsons until New Years Eve when they get me another. Then the sound broke on that, but I didn't tell them cause I couldn't be messed not having a telly again, lol.

    And a very merry xmas to you. Best 2011 gaming stuff was getting out the office to meet up with you guys at Child of Eden & Gamefest. That drink was called the 'Fireball' by the way, and combined with animal nitrate causes comedy leg malfunction. Fact. Worst memory was watching my mate desperately trying to justify his Kinect purchase with a group game at his xmas party yesterday. 90% recalibration, 10% mild fun. Ouch.
  • BlueScorpion91 - December 28, 2011 12:54 p.m.

    I uploaded a video of you vs Cundy on SxT @ GAMEfest, fella.
  • Mooshon - December 28, 2011 3:19 p.m.

    Ha got it, nice one. Easy peasey. Especially that houghton character ;) We should do that again sometime

    I always smile when I see that header image. CUNDY!
  • Y2Ken - December 28, 2011 7:32 a.m.

    Huzzah for new GRUK antics!
  • Matt Cundy - December 28, 2011 7:14 a.m.

    The problem with the link is now FIXED and will take you to episode 4 as it should. Enjoy the show and keep having a lovely Christmas.
