Podcast: TalkRadar UK #43

Listen now...

BOOM! It's here. A brand-spanking-new episode of your favourite podcast from the gentlemen at GamesRadar UK. This week Matt, Meiks and Nathan sharpen up their critical swords and plunge it into deep subject beasts such as...

- E3, the biggest gaming show on the calendar, is here and the team voice their strong-worded, often sweary opinions on the big three's conferences, Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony. Why the eff did Microsoft spend WAY too much time on Kinect? Why didn't the likeable Kevin Butler present the whole Sony show? How come Ninty still haven't announced a HD console? It's all here.  

- We read your answers to Question of the Week (If you had to promote a game at E3 how would you do it?) while also offering our own responses. Two of which are potential health and safety risks.

- Find out what we've been playing and why Nathan will never be a Street Fighter convert. Clue: He's shit at it. There's also an update on Cundy's cat-based games he's creating on Wario Ware DIY too, which is worth the entrance fee alone.

- And... Meik's forgetting about his favourite game of E3 2010, MGS: Rising and why you should never trust his reviews. The team wonders whether Peter Molnyeux has buried Milo under the virtual patio. Matt getting worked into a groin sweat while talking about Candy Kong's hairy legs. And some extremely helpful advice on how to break into GR Editor, George Walter's house.

    Most fun podcast! Just a sidenote: I love LittleBigPlanet, mainly for the single player "story" mode. The levels that come with it are really nicely designed, and I enjoyed playing through them very much - they are the main reason I am looking forward to LBP2

    Lads, that was probably one of the funniest podcasts ever! :) The part with Cundy's Donkey Kong Country booth was brilliant! And when ye were telling me to break into George's house, haha! And sorry, I must've gotten George mentioning the box of PS2 games mixed up with Nathan saying about the drawer of PSP games.

    Slightly lower energy vibe from this podcast episode...still, I got a few laughs but it finished before long. The crew must have had a few E3 related deadlines to meet. Cheers.

    Okay have to hope whoever said that the xbox new thing is an eye toy better not be serious other wise a tribunal may be ready for him.

    Whew, that was a long synopsis. Is it still worth listening to the show, is there anything still to learn?
