Incredible! It's the GamesRadar UK Podcast Question Box

So this is the GamesRadar UK Podcast Question Box. As of right now it's officially a bi-weekly regular. Every other Friday we'll invite you to come inside the GRUK Question Box and leave a deposit. By which we mean leave a question or a comment or an observation or a terrifying intention to love/harm any or all members of the GRUK team. Anything you want really. We will then feature as many of these valued contributions as possible on the following week's GamesRadar UK Podcast. Here's a picture of the GRUK Podcast Question Box™:

Fertile topics of discussion this week could be the just announced Nintendo 3DS XL or the news we'll be able to PLAY OKAMI in HD or maybe you'd like to debate the merits of the Lingerie Football League. Or something else that is none of these things. Whatever. It's your call. So go crazy and stick a question in our Question Box (ie leave a comment below).

And once you've done that, why not stimulate your ears with the trademark sexy game chat/nonsense of the GRUK Podcast by fingering through our back catalogue. It's completely free and you are under no obligation to actually enjoy the thing.

    Following on from the startling revelation of Mr Towell being a closet Pirate lover in last weeks podcast, can you recommend some good pirate related games? Is that Lego PotC game any good, what about those Port Royale games? You can skip Sid Meier's Pirates which I already own 4 times - Original Xbox, PC, Xbox 360 (Original Xbox Download) & iOS. Cheers, hugs and kisses for all.

    With the painfully fresh wound still open from Englands pentalty shootout loss to Italy at Euro 2012, What video game series cant you help yourself getting excited about even though you have had your heart broken on countless time and there is no chance that it will have changed its ways and reclaim former glories.... Mine would be Sonic.... I cant help getting a twitch of excitement when a new one is released even though they have utterly dire since about 1994... I mean screeching Guitar sound tracks and big the fucking cat is almost as bad as Ashley Youngs penalty last night!

    Do you think Nintendo has its priorities straight right now? They eschewed Fire Emblem: Awakening at their multiple E3 conferences, only to announce it via twitter during that same week. Now we found out in the last Nintendo Direct the game, which only needs localization work to come to the West, won't be available until 2013. Amidst a slew of casual Mario and dance titles, why does it seem like Nintendo is putting next to no effort into games for its grassroots audience? Thanks a lot, keep up the good work on the site.

    What are your thoughts on the upcoming Need For Speed: Most Wanted reboot/Burnout Paradise expansion? Kisses for you all

    What do you think of the new 3DS? I feel like they're mugging me off since it doesn't have an extra circle pad or include a charger.

    You can have one weapon and one non-lethal item (map etc.) to survive a zombie apocalypse. What do you choose and why?

    Confession time{not had one in years}. When I was 12 me, my cousin and a new lad that just pulled on the camp used to trade games with each other. So one day I find out that that my cousin has The Simpson's Hit and Run, a game that I'd be wanting for ages,and is willing to swap it. But I also find out that the new lad(who later became one of my best friends) had my then favourite game ever, Metal Gear Solid 2. So we go to "The place" to do some deals. Anyway, after many deals had been done, it came down to my couple of games, my cousins Simpson's game and the lads MGS2. After I traded my games for MGS2, but soon realised that I had no H&R, so I Del Boyed my cousin into believing that we swapped earlier so I could have The Simpson's game. So I affectivly ended up stealing it from him. And looking back I do feel bad because I wasn't brought up like that, and it's just being a evil little bastard, really. = And sorry I haven't been in touch lately, but just ain't had the time :(. This is Ambrose, BTW. Lol. !!LOVE YOU ALL!!

    Ya heres a short question, what the hell happened to "ask gr". I actualy liked those.
  • Kieran712 - June 22, 2012 5:56 p.m.

    Ello ello people of GamesRadar. My question is regarding Dust 514. I have recently learned that you can buy the very best equipment in the game of something along the lines of 20p but you lose it when you die. Do you think that this is just the developers way of 'nickle and diming' people to death or do you guys think its a perfectly legitimate skip ahead and a great way for the developer to make money? Im on the fence with it as I dont like to see a gap between players any way other than cosmetically but then again, they need to make money some way and it seems like a reasonably fair way to do it. Thanks for reading my long winded message, Kieran

    oh and yeah I second the commenter who was curious about Nathan, it would be great to have him on as a guest sometime (what exactly does he do at rockstar?) and hear about his new life in nyc (where I live!)
  • tskross - June 22, 2012 3:18 p.m.

    Kross here, love the podcast, been listening for ages I have 2 questions. First I'm interested in how much time you guys (and guest) actually get to spend playing games. Obviously as games journalists I would imagine it would be more than the average person, but does that mean in inverse that you don't spend as much of your personal time playing games? Although I do seem to remember hearing you say recently that you don't actually get to play games at work... Secondly as you get older do you find yourself gravitating more towards one game type or genre for your own personal enjoyment? I grew up with atari, nes, snes then pc to ps1-2 and now 3 and enjoyed every type of game I could get my hands on, but over the past 5 years or so I find that I really only play fps's (BF# right now) in my spare time. I think its mostly because they are easy to get in and play quickly for some instant gratification and I don't have much time now that I'm in my 30's. I'm curious if other gamers of a certain age feel the same way or not...
  • scaler2000 - June 22, 2012 3:05 p.m.

    what are your takes on planetside 2? will the lag for 2000+ fps players on one map be unbearable? i mean MAG pulled of like 254 or something but this is 8x more and the world is persistent. lots of love and hugs and kisses for all XXX OOO and maybe a small one for the guest x
  • PleasantPig - June 22, 2012 2:22 p.m.

    Have any of you folks ever tasted a gaming controller or peripheral, and if so, which is the tastiest? I never have, but a friend of mine used to suck the air from between the R1 and R2 button on a PS1 controller and assures me it was delicious. I don't know if you could tell, but I struggled to come up with a question this time. Anyway, I hope this one was OK for you. Keep up the good work!
  • Goldjit - June 22, 2012 1:43 p.m.

    What games (new, old, sequels or remakes) would you want to see on th PS Vita? Also, quack or double quack?
  • ColinKapow - June 22, 2012 9:38 a.m.

    Hello manly dreamboats of GamesRadar! I have a pointless question for you three and your special guest. If someone was to make a video game of each of your lives what type of game would it be and who would develop it? Much love to you all for ejaculating gaming goodness into our peasant ears every two weeks. Ooooooooo.
  • garnsr - June 22, 2012 9:22 a.m.

    Do you ever think about the fact that you live in a city called Bath, and chuckle a little?
  • mysteryman - June 22, 2012 9:14 a.m.

    Gents of GRUK What did Dave think of the Wii u (honestly)? I am now undecided as to buy one after the shambolic E3. I'm a big fan of thier 1st party titles but need some convincing before Nintendo mug me off. Would also like any views on price point if you have any rumours to share. Would get Justin's views but he loves everything shiny and new (sorry Justin). Great podcast love to all xx
  • Rhymenocerous - June 22, 2012 8:46 a.m.

    Is Okami REALLY that good? Be honest... (A simple "no" would be appreciated)
  • Clovin64 - June 22, 2012 8:15 a.m.

    Hello chaps! I was reading more about The Last of Us and it reminded me about the criticisms Uncharted 3 recieved about its linearity. It seems "linear" has become a dirty word lately. Do you guys think linearity is an out-dated game concept? should every game try to provide more open experiences? Personally, I'm perefectly fine with it in most cases (especially story-driven games) won't really be complaining if The Last of Us is just as linear (but just as good!) as Drake's adventures. P.S. I also wouldnt complain if the podcast had a guest appearence from a certain Jurrassic Park obsessed Scotsman. Just sayin. Kisses all round XXX :)
