GamesRadar UK Podcast 007 - Man down

We hate it when these moments come around. First it was George Walter, then Dave 'Uncle Dave' Meikleham and now another has struggled free of our protective grip. Yup, 007 is the final GRUK Podcast for Nathan as he leaves to seek his fortune elsewhere.

Amongst the chatter about SSX, HD remakes and answering your questions, the afro'd one crowbars in his favourite moments of the past 100+ podcasts he's been involved with on GamesRadar. We won't lie, there's some emotional stuff loaded in this latest 'cast. Thankfully, it's punctuated with animal noises from Cundy.

As a parting gift, Nate has decided to give away the 27 games he currently has attracting dust on his desk. Listen to the podcast for your chance to win all this...

Generous, huh? Join us as we send him off in true GRUK fashion - with tears and knob-jokes. And to commemorate this time, we've even tricked Nathan into creating a second page for this landing page to showcase your lovely fan art from here. Ha! But first, a musical interlude made by Mooshon. Hankies at the ready...

Above: GAME OVER, MAN! GAME OVER!

    The competition for this episode is now totally closed. Thanks to everyone that took part. And Nathan has - from beyond the grave - asked me to pass on his gratitude to everyone that left him warm messages of loveliness. He was 'very touched'. I made sure of that. I'm happy to announce that the winner of the MEGA-STASH OF GAMES (27 in total) is Joey_Connell. He wins. so everyone say well done to him. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for a new amaze-o competition in the new post-Nathan podcast, which lands 22 February (aka this Wednesday).

    My choice for Nathan's replacement would be Harry Tipper from Timsplitters. I think he would respond well to the sexual puns in the show and also add plenty of his own :)
  • Schtooh - February 14, 2012 11:27 a.m.

    Moby from SSX should replace Nathan because they both have funky hair, they are (now at least) solitary Brits among a load of Americans, Nath loves SSX and, much like Moby, Nathan has a long thin board that is flat at the bottom and is better for gathering speed than doing tricks (He has as well).
  • vigilant - February 13, 2012 10:06 a.m.

    I'd replace Nathan with Duncan Balentine from the Dragon's Den, since we all know Duncan copied Nathan's famous 'I'm Out' catchphrase, not to mention how Duncan is a bit miserable and scottish, so it feels like Nathan's been replaced with Meiks. Miss you, Nath :)
  • BlueScorpion91 - February 10, 2012 3:57 p.m.

    Bye Nate, we all are obviously gonna miss ya, fella. And I'm so sad that I'm not even going to enter the competition. Although my pick would be the Russian doctor from Nazi Zombies. "Soo many body parts, I'm in Heaven" Cya ya dude :)
  • kungfumoz - February 10, 2012 3:16 p.m.

    I don't think a game character should replace Nathan. Cundy should do some of his DIY cosplay as Nath. Would like to see just what would happen as he went off on a rant & tried to talk himself out of it at the same time. Oh & Tiger from Tekken 3 has the best afro in gaming
  • john5alive - February 10, 2012 2:47 p.m.

    It's sad hearing Nathan leave the Games Radar family but I think the Story teller guy from Bastion should replace him
  • HadokenAlex - February 10, 2012 1:43 p.m.

    Replace Nathan with Darmanitan. He's got eyebrows made of fire! Also he can fiery punch someones bloody lights out.
  • whateverman - February 10, 2012 6:15 a.m.

    I say replace Nathan with Old School Lara Croft. Big hair for big chesticles seems like a fair swap. I would also like to see her response to Cundy's cousin Roman impression. I would like to with Nathan all the best in his future endevours.
  • jasonx101 - February 10, 2012 5:53 a.m.

    I think my replacement for Nathan would be Brucie Kibbutz from GTA IV.... imagine the chaos! I have visions of Brucie's...... unique view on life, whilst attempting to hide his bisexuality, accompanied by Cundy's innuendo jokes and the look of horror on Towellie's face. Also good luck Nath you will be missed. Much love
  • Joco84 - February 10, 2012 1:23 a.m.

    My replacement for Nathan would be Raoul Moat. ... what? .... he's dead?.... ..... ....... ..........oh!
  • cj12297 - February 9, 2012 7:19 p.m.

    I think Gordon Freeman from half-life would be a good replacement. He seems very chatty and he's a scientist so he has to be smart, RIGHT?!? Also who better to talk endlessly about games then the talkative Gordan Freeman. Actually he doesn't really talk much. I pick Sly Cooper then. Don't worry about him stealing stuff, Nathan will probably take as much GR stuff as possible and Cundy will probably take the rest to his 'happy place'. Also that smooth, sexy raccoon voice. Ignore that last bit.
  • cj12297 - February 9, 2012 7:21 p.m.

    Also, forgot to say that I will miss you Nathan!
  • NearNRiver - February 9, 2012 6:12 p.m.

    I was having quite a hard time finding a replacement for Nathan, but then I decided to break it down into what Nathan really brought to the podcast: his afro, and his bulge. Who could fill these two massive gaps? Because no one could ever have hair as awesome as Nathan's floating locks, I decided to replace him with A BALD CHARACTER! But one that has a head-topping to almost match the fro, THE KING OF ALL COSMOS HIMSELF! And no one can say he doesn't come at least close to Nathan in the bulge area. (I'm not sure if this would get picked with Nathan running the podcast, but with less to keep Cundy under-wraps, I'm hoping some crude humor will win out! Failing that: TITTIES!!!!)
  • Sully8764 - February 9, 2012 12:56 p.m.

    And yes, I know that statement would make every scientist want to rape my soul for all of eternity, but it sounded poetic, dammit!
  • Sully8764 - February 9, 2012 12:52 p.m.

    Nathan's replacement would have to be Sithis, the Dread Lord of Skyrim fame, for maybe only the Void itself can fill the one he's left behind... :'(
  • ColinKapow - February 9, 2012 7:06 a.m.

    I'd choose Cousin Roman from GTA mainly because I want to see if he would be offended by Cundy's "TITEEEESSSSS" impersonation or if it would just become and back and forth of "TITEEEEESSSSSSS" between the two until the end of the podcast.
  • joedix88 - February 9, 2012 6:49 a.m.

    My pick would be Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series, because i'm lazy and choosing someone else would mean i'd have to change the name. Also, my answer to the nearly-question of the week is Afro Thunder from Ready 2 Rumble.
  • veryweirdguy - February 9, 2012 3:45 a.m.

    My pick for Nath's replacement would be Parappa the Rapper, just so we could get an awesome musical podcast going: "I've been playing a bunch of old games this week, My gaming skills are wicked sleek! Although this one Kinect game is a little shitty, It had real potential, so it's a bit of a pity. I've chosen the game for the erection section, It's a retro slice of gaming perfection! So allow me to say to all you sucka MCs The most important thing in games is: TITTIESSSSSS." (and so on. I can't rap, he'd be much much better.) Failing that, I'd choose a silent protagonist like Gordon Freeman, Link or Claude from GTA 3, because NO-ONE CAN REPLACE NATHAN!!! Best of luck in the future, mate. We'll miss you.
  • xBlueWolfx - February 8, 2012 10:04 p.m.

    All the best Nath, Unfortunately the Podcast still isn't appearing in iTunes mobile :(
