Podcast: TalkRadar UK #66


Listen now...

Hey there. Yes you. Are you curious about what TalkRadar UK is? About what audiological delights await your ears (they're lovely ears, by the way) when you click on the play button below? Well fret no more, because we're about to tell you exactly what you get.

Not only is TalkRadar UK home to the internet's best loved catchphrases ('are you muggin' me off' being a particular favourite) it also deals with all the relevant gaming news - good and bad - without the PR choking BS. So you get real insider opinion and reflections on current games and upcoming games from a team of men you can trust. Most of the time. 

What can you specifically expect from TalkRadar UK today and the trio of Cundy, Dave H and Nathan? All of this and much, much more. P.S. Those ears *really* are lovely. They deserve a treat of the TalkRadar UK variety immediately.

*NEWS! - Find out what we think about GT5 now we finally have it in the office. Why game AI will never win over everyone and how we feel about ONLive (hint: indifferent).

*APPRECIATION SECTION! - Dave H gets all misty-eyed about PS2 classic Prince of Persia: Warrior Within in the (sort of) all new section.

*QUESTION OF THE WEEK! - We plough through your answers to the question Which current or old cartoon show would you most like to see turned into a game and why?

*GAMESRADAR HOTLINE! - The team play out your voicemails and read out your texts with their mouths.

    I knew Matt could keep it up the longest. He's the man.
  • LordFenris - November 26, 2010 1:05 a.m.

    I love Matt's soothing tones during the Appreciation section jingle. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside
  • MrWrighty987 - November 25, 2010 7:10 p.m.

    My god this episode is sexy
  • melch - November 25, 2010 5:58 p.m.

    awesome, that trap door game was an absolute arse, cant believe you guys mentioned it. the fried eggs mission was just insanely hard
  • philipshaw - November 25, 2010 5:09 p.m.

    This and a new Talkradar US on the same day, I can't handle all the awesome
  • TJP75 - November 25, 2010 12:15 p.m.

    Great show as always. I was surprised that you didn't mention Bizarre Creations may be closed by Activision. As the UK game development industry loses jobs, in many cases to countries such as Canada, I would have thought the threat of 200 job losses from one of gamings great developers was a news worthy story for the week.
  • Ninjadmin - November 25, 2010 10:06 a.m.

    Yay! Look forward to this every week. :D
  • JD_Method - November 24, 2010 10:58 p.m.

    Damn, I love this podcast. It's just awesome how you go from talking about racing simulator games to headbutting cows to death.
  • Clovin64 - November 24, 2010 10:38 p.m.

    Glad to see POP: Warrior Within get some love from Hooters. It was my first POP game, and I thought it was excellent. The Sand Wraith sections gave me some seriously sweaty palms.
  • Eaxis - November 24, 2010 9:06 p.m.

    Funny challenge. Looking forward to give it a listen.
  • garnsr - November 24, 2010 8:35 p.m.

    I was little alarmed this morning when there was no new show before I had to leave for work, I thought maybe you'd taken Thanksgiving off. Then I remembered you're British, and Thanksgiving's a celebration of escaping from you guys, so I realized that'd be silly. Good to see you aren't holding it against us, and still let us listen to your show with our lovely ears.
  • Kieran712 - November 24, 2010 6:52 p.m.

    I loved The Saboteur soo much the colour system showing how much you've changed that past of the city. I'd play through it again but I think 3 times is enough =D
  • cj12297 - November 24, 2010 6:29 p.m.

    why are you using the old video player
  • Yaro - November 24, 2010 5:50 p.m.

    YES! I like warrior within too! Finally someone from GR expresses a positive opinion about it. =)
  • TrueGoddessReincarnation - November 24, 2010 5:10 p.m.

    ignore my comment it took so long to type with my ps3 pad the problem was fixed by the time i typed it
  • 510BrotherPanda - November 24, 2010 5:09 p.m.

    Did you guys get in contact yet with the US team regarding the new video player, or are they not willing to share it with you guys??? It would be loads better.
  • TrueGoddessReincarnation - November 24, 2010 5:06 p.m.

    not downloading boohoo. on the plus side the podcast finally breached 2 hours. next week i expect at least 3 hours. also another great minigame
  • LordsOfTechno - November 24, 2010 5:06 p.m.

    Thanks. For some strange reason the link wasn't there when I first posted; sorry if it sounded like I was moaning. Anyway now I can enjoy the podcast. :D
  • Matt Cundy - November 24, 2010 4:59 p.m.

    @LordsOfTechno The big 'Download Episode 66' image at the top of the page is now a clickable link.
  • GR_DavidHoughton - November 24, 2010 4:58 p.m.

    LordsOfTechno: Just right-click the DL link at the top. That should sort you out.
