Podcast: TalkRadar UK Episode 33


In podcast episode 33 Dave Houghton, Dave Meikleham and Nathan Irvine discuss why none of them are feeling Natal just yet; what they think about the iPad; Dave's embarassing obsession with online browser game Neptune's Pride; and Question of the Week looks into technical failings in next-gen games that bug the hell out of us.

Plus, someone actually phones us up on the GamesRadar hotline which segues nicely into a heated debate about what annoys the guys most about forum posters.

    Certainly not offended, just a thing I noticed this episode but not before. Just another of those odd differences between the old country and the new, I guess.

    Cool. I downloaded off the site it anyway but I hate having to do that. Great 'cast, BTW.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the podcast is now available on iTunes and the RSS feed has been updated too. Apologies for any inconvenience. @garnsr Not sure what you mean about the 'H' thing. Maybe it's my Mancunian accent but you're certainly the first mention it. If it offends you then, umm, there's nothing I can (will) do about it.

    Yes, new Talkradar UK and Meiks is on for the 2nd podcast in a row

    cant wait to listen but it doesn't seem to be listed on the itunes store. Was there aprobl;em uploading it or is it something im doing?

    The American pronunciation is "aych," like ache but with a "ch" sound instead of a "k" sound. Someone must've said HD before on this show, but I don't remember noticing the pronunciation before.
  • jaffa_5 - April 8, 2010 1:35 a.m.

    its 2:33am so how come the podcast isnt on iTunes yet??
  • TJP75 - April 8, 2010 1:04 a.m.

    Someone needs to update the RSS feed as it's has epsiode 32 as the latest one & the onsite link has TalkRadar UK at Epiosde 30. Cheers.
  • breener96 - April 7, 2010 11:46 p.m.

    And guys, sad face about it not being on iTunes. Sad face indeed.
  • breener96 - April 7, 2010 11:39 p.m.

    Wait, how do you pronounce "h"? Do you pronounce it differently than "haych"?
  • garnsr - April 7, 2010 11 p.m.

    It seems like if Houghton thinks the the PS3 XMB is pretentious, and the orchestral boot-up music is too, that he would be exactly the wrong person to review Heavy Rain, which is a game that I think appeals to people who think the opposite about the PS3. It's hard to imagine disliking the XMB, but apparently it is possible. And is it possible for Nathan to say "H" without saying "haych?" I never noticed it before this episode, but he always says "haych D" and Dave Haych. Is it a choice, or does the initial h always come out?

    We've had Trigger Happy TV in the US, it was on Comedy Central for a while.

    Yay, second week running! That ultra-secret exclusive hotline straight to GR towers pays off! (And at only £24.99 per month...) Mr. Meikleham, you've just earned a few hundred kudos points with me. It was really refreshing to hear someone praising GTA IV for once, rather than bashing it for no discernable reason. And I chuckled at Nathan: 'Natal - not for Simon Weston'.

    Cover art! THANK YOU!
  • breener96 - April 7, 2010 4:58 p.m.

    Sorry about the double post, damn webternets.
  • breener96 - April 7, 2010 4:57 p.m.

    2 things 1) The date is the 7th of April, not March & 2) Have you guys taken a look at the wiki?

    YAY THE UK!!
  • garnsr - April 7, 2010 4:20 p.m.

    I wonder if they complain about anything I do when I post? What could they be most annoyed with? Hey, hey, ReCaptcha: quantify Briton. I think I'll leave that up to you guys.
  • breener96 - April 7, 2010 4:12 p.m.

    WTF? What's with the new set-up of the landing page? Now I don't know what to put as a picture for the TDar Wiki. Well, I'll live. Can't wait to listen, as usual!
