    Alright gents! If you could get Travellers Tales to make a Lego game based on any film what would it be? I would go for Lego Jurassic Park. Love the podcast! Lots of love Snakins xxx and a big dirty X for Cundy

    That's a great idea! I bet LEGO Ian Malcolm would be awesome. As for me, I would say... Robin Hood Prince of Theives. There's already existing Robin Hood LEGO so it would look super-authentic, plus LEGO Costner bum (which was actually a stunt double, apparently) would be really funny in the cut-scene.

    Lego Battle Royale. Boom.

    Greetings gentlemen who will be blamed for nothing, I've been a long time listener but have only recently managed to wrestle the laptop from my Smegbook addicted partner to be able to write you. Congrats on my favourite podcast which keeps me smiling like a loon on the way to work as well as scaring the pensioners on OAP day at work! Recently I fancied a trip through memory lane and visited some of the genres which have dissapeared under the crushing masses of FPS and third person shooters which burden the game industry. No longer can I enjoy a simple turn based RPG due to constant active Time doodahs or the simple pleasure of finding the perfect pixel to click on to execute a bizarre logic puzzle in a point n' click. As you well know Mr Schaefer is planning on bringing point n clicks back to the masses but are there any other genres or game mechanics that have disappeared in recent years you'd like to see return? Take care guys and keep up the sterling work, Huzzah, Tenners!

    I think levels and game overs are sorely missed these days. Everyone's so scared about 'losing their progress', devs never seem to want to let people actually 'be out'. I think there's a lot to be said for the excitement of reaching a level you've not reached before, and wanting to stay on it as long as possible, even though you're on your last life. 'Wow, I've never got this far before' is not something you hear said that much these days.

    Greetings, blokes of GamesRadar UK. I'm a long time listener, first time quizzical pest. I find myself growing increasingly weary of the triple A focused nature of the industry. With this in mind, I recently picked up both Vanquish and Asura's Wrath dirt cheap and found that I enjoyed them immensely, more than most of the big sequels I've played that get the sales. On to my question, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in sticky toffee: With the massive gap in sales between Triple A and Double A titles, do you think the latter has a future in the industry? If so, what could they do to enjoy the success and financial justification they had in previous console generations? Keep up the good work, lads.

    Dear wonderful GRUK men, I was really happy that my suggestion for Dave's section "Houghton agrees" lasted more than a week and the copy of Xmen-destiny I won looks amazing on my shelf. However, I'm slightly disappointed by the lack of pain experienced by Mr. Houghton when he agrees with something. I have a great love for Hooters, and enjoy everything he contributes to the site, particularly his passionate but always insightful rants. Truly he is a genius among journalists. However, I was hoping that hearing him suffer every two weeks might help distract me from the intense misery of my own life. *uncontrollable wailing and crying* Would it be possible to poke him with sticks during the section, or anything else you can think of, to do something to increase his suffering for 45 seconds once a fortnight? Alternatively, could he be forced to agree with Justin for the duration of at least one podcast? That should keep me going for a while. Kisses for all, (an extra one for Dave) Confident Sheep
  • GR_JustinTowell - July 11, 2012 2:32 a.m.

    I'm not sure why the 'has to agree with Justin' forfeit never gets used. Highly unfair. Hooters? What says you, sir?
  • garnsr - July 6, 2012 9:17 a.m.

    Would you rather have your buttons and control sticks get sticky or slippery? Like, playing while eating caramel, or playing while eating french fries? Also, if you don't actually file for a trademark is it legal to use the superscript for it?
  • Mooshon - July 6, 2012 7:07 a.m.

    Can you remember when gaming was on the C64 / Speccy rubber keys and every game purchase felt special? Then can you remember getting an amiga and (hypothetically) having a copy of every single game in existence (in rows and rows of disc boxes... hypothetically) - ultimately resulting in a 10 minute attention span to all games. Juxtapose that thought against the current gen and looming spectre of digital distribution cloud gaming; will it be an exciting future of cheap, sexy, everyone-in gaming - or a massive buzz kill where having access to 'everything' cheapens the experience? Could there be a side effect of leveling the playing field so that indie devs could finally publish games alongside the big boys (a la Steam) direct to your telly box? Revolutionary sexy future, or dystopia hell hole? Discuss!

    It used to be great collecting CDs, going to different cities to find small stores that had singles that I'd never seen, and working to build a collection. Then, you could just order off the internet and they'd deliver whatever you wanted, and now you just download everything, and it hardly even feels like a collection anymore. Games feel the same now, I hardly ever go to the store, it all just comes through Amazon now, and PSN.

    Hello menly men of Gamesradar UK! Nowadays many games have been including celebrities/famous folk as voice actors in there games. my question to you good gentlemen, is which famous voice would you like to hear in a game, and what kind of role would they play? Personally, I've got my fingers crossed for Patrick Stewart as the next immoral murder-junkie GTA protagonist. He's been in games before, so its not the most ridiculous idea ever. Huggsies! XXX
  • scaler2000 - July 6, 2012 6:45 a.m.

    dear GRUK what's your take on planet side 2? i never played the one but the scale and mechanics of the 2 seem interesting. i even signed up for the beta. xxx scaler

    Hiya dears, My question's sorta based of your guest, but is applicable to all here. As usual in a summer holiday, I've been revisiting old games for two reasons: firstly in order to properly appreciate them, or hunting achievements. There have been a few critically acclaimed games I didn't 'get' or like at all, Red Dead Redemption, which I sold, Fallout 3 which is sitting in a drawer being both worthless and intimidating to retry, Bioshock 2, which I'm currently giving a second chance, and Arkham Asylum, which I fell in love with on second attempt. In contrast, there are some games I've played to the point where they are no longer enjoyable, such as after trophy hunting in Portal 2, Riddler Challenges, or the entire Assassin's Creed series which I became bored with after 100%ing AC2. Therefore, my question is: When, and why, do games that _you_ like stop being enjoyable, and when do you seem to dislike something everyone else likes? Does a good knowledge of gaming encourage review scores to be more homogenous, and do you guys with a rapid game turnover ever get fatigued with what you're playing? Also, get Jon or Matt from OXM on if possible and available - their style and content are rather excellent. A brofist for Cundy as obligatory, and a pat on the back and 'Oh You...' for Justin.
  • Matt Cundy - July 6, 2012 6:43 a.m.

    Would love to get either of those OXM men on the cast. But they are based in London, while we're in Bath. So our paths do not cross very often. Which is a danged shame.
  • scaler2000 - July 6, 2012 6:52 a.m.

    once me and my mate played god of war 2, 6 times in a row in one night. first time for the story and suck. second time for the unlockables, from then on we just did it to enjoy the game. cant say i wont play it again to be honest maybe its cos i was playing it with someone else so that in its self was fun. p.s play through 5 was to check whether he says one line not shouting..... he doesn't i.e EVERY word in his script is bellowed in his rage induced voice
  • BlueScorpion91 - July 6, 2012 5:45 a.m.

    Hey lads. Sorry I haven't been getting in touch lately, but I'm trying to find the time to. But my question is: What do you all think would start making games sell as much as they use to again? I think there should be more good games that are suitable for kids again. Because that's what made the Wii and DS so fantastically popular. Games nowadays, or the ones that seem to get advertised, are mostly very gorey or have complicated plots.
  • BladedFalcon - July 6, 2012 5:43 a.m.

    Hello there chaps! So, I have a question for this week's guest, Mr. Iain Wilson: Which would you consider to be the the top 5 most satisfyingly challenging games in the PS3 so far, regardless of what most of the softie gamers out there might say? Also, a bonus (And somewhat related) question for everyone while I'm at it: What is your favorite "Boss Fight" of this current Generation, and why? Thanks! and a manly hug to each and everyone of you!
  • LEGOMatrix - July 6, 2012 5:13 a.m.

    Thank you for the podcast! It is the one I look forward to the most. Shame it is no longer weekly, but I'll take a biweekly GRUK over a weekly TalkRadar any time! I have a boring question though: Why is there no GRUK podcast RSS feed? Both the old podcasts had them. Am I just missing it? I don't use iTunes. Druchea bles:
  • BottleBank - July 6, 2012 4:50 a.m.

    Hello chaps, I have two questions. Firstly, I am massively looking forward to Dishonored. Have any of you played it? Does it look like it will be worth the wait? Secondly, like Justin I also cannot wait for Nights HD and... Oh wait, no I don't give a bollocks about it. (sorry towelly it was just never my thing) Keep up the sterling work guys, Hugs and kisses From Bottlebank
