Podcast: TalkRadar UK #53

Listen now...

Hello there and welcome to a brand-spanking new episode of your favourite gaming podcast with the words 'talk', 'radar' and 'UK' in the title.

This week Matt, Justin, Dave H and Nathan take you on a journey through burning subjects that are currently lighting up the games industry while also stuffing their greedy faces with donuts (video below).

So what can you expect from the fearsome foursome?

- The news!: Find out what happens when online gaming grievances spill into the real world. (Two words: beat down)
- Appreciation section!: Matt delves into his past to show some retrospective love for a game and character he adores
- Question of the week!: In which we read out your answers to the question... Which game reminds you most of your childhood? You can play one of Nathan's favourites Spectrum classic, Chaos, here.
- What we've been playing!:
We've actually played something other than Super Mario Galaxy 2 this week. Sort of. Woo!
- GamesRadar Hotline!: We have an actual phone call for once. And loads of your text messages to read out.
- And mucho, mucho more, erm, oh!


Above: Justin goes wakka-wakka with his iPad Pac-Man and his sugary donut version

    Im listening to the podcast a little late as usual but i love your guys' crocodile dundee reference. I want to make a ton of sweet photoshops for this podcast but i dont know how much people would care since i feel like im listening really late. Great podcast anyways though

    I felt the need to comment just to say that this was by far the funniest TDar UK I've ever had the pleasure of listening to! Had me in stitches, really really great. Definitely the funniest podcast you've done! Keep up the great work guys! :)

    Great P'cast again lads, the minigame section should become the normal start for every episode :)

    'twas great! I thought that I sounded weird on the phone, though. And sorry, Matt. I just thought that Justin would remember Dynamite Headdy the most because I played it on MegaDrive.

    Brilliant podcast - had me in stitches at times.

    Donut mini game FTW. I'm going to have a listen to this on the bus ride to my mates house

    I'd say this is my favorite GRUK so far. It was excellent.

    Shadowgate was a NES point-and-click adventure, definitely not action. But it was pretty good. I get periods where I finish a game, then take some time before I can get myself to start into a new game. It's not usually an emotional thing, I just don't really feel like getting into another game for some reason.

    I don't know what the point of that video was but I loved it. I probably laughed much more than I should've, aswell! :P Well, that sound like a good way to start the 'cast, I'll listen tonight!
