Podcast: TalkRadar UK #62

Listen now:

Today's team of triumph consists of Justin, Cundy and Nathan and provides the usual sprinklings of interesting game-related backstories, hot opinion on the latest news related affairs and, of course, a healthy dose of 'ARE YOU MUGGIN' ME OFF?' soundbites from the most celebrated Cornish man since the man who invented their trademark pasty, Matt Cundy.

But what else can you expect? All this and more...

NEWS - Will Apple buy Sony or EA? Do any of the team care? Plus an insight into how one man's dirty illness made the PS2 his most memorable console purchase. (NB: PS2 is ten this week)

APPRECIATION SECTION - Justin has a flashback to remember, erm, Flashback - a game that was ahead of its time but sadly wouldn't appeal to those who need a tutorial before every action these days...

QUESTION OF THE WEEK - Reading your answers to... If you could, what gameplay innovation, mechanic or element would you strike from history?

WHAT WE'VE BEEN PLAYING - The team can't agree whether Costume Quest is brilliant or lacking atmosphere and whether Vanquish is too short or not. Idiots.

GAMESRADAR HOTLINE - Where we answer your questions and play your voices over the airwaves. Oh, and someone asked what the deal was with Meiks and the Mini Ninjas - click here for the answer.

    That minigame was quality, can't wait to listen to the podcast because it sounds good

    Nice effort with the Aussie accent Matt, as an Australian I found it quite amusing even if we don't sound anything like it. As for the size of Kangaroos, take a look at our roadtrains. All of them have 'roo bars, enough said if a truck needs protection. Cheers.

    *edit* That should read "intact". I cannot spell. Pity me.
  • Clovin64 - October 28, 2010 12:12 a.m.

    That last shot on the Mini game challenge looked painful. Better check next week to see if Matt's mental faculties are still instanct after that last vicious headshot.

    Great to see Flashback featured in the appreciation section. I too bought this for the SNES years ago, loved it from the start and finished it many times. I still have the SNES and many games in storage..SNES still works like it did when I bought it many moons ago. Pity the follow up to Flashback was so rubbish! Cheers.

    LOL sweet minigame this week, i think Nathan's throws were a bit vicious compared to the other lads, but i guess Cundy didn't get all dressed up for nothing! Looking forward to listening tomorrow at work. Cheers guys

    = Not amused. Not amused at all. :D
  • LordsOfTechno - October 27, 2010 4:50 p.m.

    Most awesome mini-game ever... and I want Justin's hat.
  • bluscorp - October 27, 2010 4:30 p.m.

    Best mini game EVER!. I want your jobs even more now :(
  • 510BrotherPanda - October 27, 2010 4:17 p.m.

    Poor Matt... But this was one of the better minigames, after all; I'd say it's about even with the T-shirt and "weightlifting" ones.
  • ithurtstopoop - October 27, 2010 4:14 p.m.

    that mini game was piss funny. but one thing bothers me, no nut shots??
  • tareq - October 27, 2010 3:16 p.m.
