    My biggest shame is when my mum bought The Da Vinci Code for PS2 and I refused to let her play it and then traded it in when she had forgotten about it... or recently losing to my girlfriend at Crash Team Racing and turning the PS3 off before she could see her racer on the podium. #badboyfriend

    Gaming shame. Playing 'Turtle Toss'(insert Cundy sound effect here)in Crysis. After picking up a turtle on the beach & watching it cutely wriggle around to then throw it about a bit for fun only to realise it was no longer wriggling. An endangered species as well.

    My most shameful moment in gaming? I guess it was when I was 8 and I smashed a tv screen by throwing a playstation 2 controller at because I kept being killed on Tenchu.

    Got mentioned (lightly joked about) on the podcast! I was asking about RE6. My life is complete. :D

    We'll miss you Nathan. Good luck with the new job, sounds amazing! Although with Nath being the man to keep Cundy under control in the podcast, I'm looking forward to hearing what'll happen when he's not there. Also another top-notch cast guys! The first shame which pops to mind (another recent and SR3-related one) was when we first jumped in to saints row with our created characters. My friend made his female character do a sexy dance and bend over, and my male character stood directly behind and did the slow-mo "jerkin the gherkin" animation. After about five seconds of hilarity, I felt a genuine pang of awkwardness.

    I lost my job and my girlfriend to Shenmue II when it came out on Dreamcast and I didn't care. I've already warned my current girlfriend in case Shenmue III ever comes out. I can't afford to lose my job this time so have to hope they release it on the Vita so I can play it during my extended shit breaks at work.

    My most shameful gaming moment occurred when I realised that I could install a nude mod on oblivion. Needless to say I found the first Megan Fox mod available and spent hours getting it to work so that I could traverse the land fighting goblins and bandits with a nude actress wielding a huge weapon. Or should I say my huge weapon...? Shame on me indeed. More than one dungeon was plundered that day ;) Hope all goes well for you Nathan you will surely be missed!

    Will we get a new Manc to fill in for Nathan? Did he get canned for his astonishingly disrespectful laughing at Gaming Monkey playing Tetris? Will Cundy be left to run rampant? I hope so!

    In answer to the question of what I was ashamed of in a game, I did kill a child in dragon age origin, but it was a choice between kill the kid or go on a hour long dungeon crawl, so who can blame me?
  • WizardZombie - January 25, 2012 10:32 a.m.

    You had a good run Nathan :') Biggest shame was Saints Row the Third Co-op. My friend was a hard as nails cockney, yet wearing nothing but a top hat and thong, and I was 'disguised' as a gimp. Then a Penetrator battle did commence and of course a perfectly timed entrance from my mother, right on cue. I shall never forget that face of her questioning my sexuality.
  • Peguin - January 25, 2012 10:28 a.m.

    My biggest gaming shame is the wetness in my pants everytime princess peach is on screen Good luck nathen we will miss you
  • Peguin - January 27, 2012 10:56 a.m.

    p.s. the gaming monkey was possible the funniest thing i have heard on the podcast ever. hearing nath uncontrollably laughing caused me to start uncontrollably laughing at work which made people look at me very strangly.
  • An_Awesome_Guy - January 25, 2012 10:02 a.m.

    The list of my greatest gaming shames probably depends on whether people could hear through my door or not (right behind it is the main hallway of the house), with lines such as "It's a shame there aren't more civilians to kill in Red Dead Redemption online" being uttered in the midst of online play sessions. But I too remember those hazy summer days of trying to position the camera floating over Lara just right so that... actually no, no let's not talk about that.
  • An_Awesome_Guy - January 25, 2012 10:06 a.m.

    Forgot to say goodbye to Nate, best of luck with your next venture, byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xoxoxox!!!!11!1!!!1!1!
  • Bamford38 - January 25, 2012 8:50 a.m.

    Another great podcast guys. But Nathan will be greatly missed. My greatest shame is a secret one. When i was young i used to spend an unacceptable amount of time playing Streets of Rage and trying to pause it at the exact right moment to get a glimpse at Blaze's knickers... Please dont judge me.
  • PleasantPig - January 25, 2012 8:19 a.m.

    Love you, Nathan! xoxo My greatest moment of gaming shame was when I picked up a playboy magazine in Mafia II and the massive, 1080p playboy spread popped up when my mum was watching over my shoulder.
  • Clovin64 - January 25, 2012 8:17 a.m.

    My most shameful momment is too inappropriate for these comments, but the runner-up would be me getting incredibly angry and throwing my mate out my house in a fit of rage after he stole a health power up I wanted in a co-op session of Teenage Mutant Nionja Turtles on PS2. :P Sucks that Nate is leaving to find his fortune. :( I'll say goodbyes next week!
  • An_Awesome_Guy - January 25, 2012 9:52 a.m.

    Pun intended?
  • Kieran712 - January 25, 2012 7:11 a.m.

    Biggest gaming shame was probably when my Mum walked in during the sex scene in Heavy Rain and me trying to convince her its 'Not that type of game'
