    I think Clementine has Gary Coleman Syndrome. She is actually a middle aged woman with the appearance of a child. She uses this to her advantage by posing as a child to manipulate other survivors, helping her avoid dangerous situations and responsibility. I mean...whos gunna send a little girl into a zombie infested house by one. Well...except for me...but I'm kind of a dick like that.

    Bowser is a divorcee. Had a bunch of kids with his ex wife and is stuck with them now. She looked like princess peach, which is why he keeps capturing her. She divorced him since he was so adamant about her look a like and ruining Mario's life.

    Can you guys talk about Quadrilateral Cowboy this week? It sounds awesome.
  • Timstertimster - March 31, 2014 10:32 a.m.

    There should be a DLC for GTA with Uncle Leland having you do arms trafficking for him while he eats bagels in 3 different ways.
  • Shelbyvillian - March 30, 2014 8:45 p.m.

    QOTW: Lara Croft is secretly a Nazi. She travels around the world looking for lost civilizations ancient treasures so she can put them in museums. She always seems to run into the occult or something like it and has been known to "cleanse" entire Islands of their local populous so she can claim all of their treasures.

    Delsin Rowe from inFamous: Second Son is hiding something under that beanie. Why else does he NEVER take it off? My guess is that he's hiding a herd of Lizardmen under there so when he defeats DUP, he can start the NWO and take down his true nemesis - Jessie Ventura.
  • Shigeruken - March 30, 2014 5:23 p.m.

    Darth Revan of the Knights of the Old Republic series left known space in an attempt to head off the Reapers from Mass Effect. There's a novel that chronicles his journey after KOTOR, but I think this theory is a lot more plausible than the most badass Sith/Jedi that ever lived being captured on a Sith planet and being held in stasis for centuries so that Bioware could use him in their mmo. I'm gonna miss Greg. I hope he keeps everyone up to date on what he's doing.

    Mario is secretly planning to takeover the Mushroom Kingdom through a people's revolution. Hear me out, the reason Mario doesn't just finish Bowser once and for all and instead lets him come back constantly and reek terror is that Mario needs a foil to play off. This is so his fame as the champion and hero of the Mushroom Kingdom can continue to grow while he lays the blame for Bowser's continued existence to the mercy that Princess Peach gives Bowser. Meanwhile Bowser is actually works for Mario because of a secret deal that would give Bowser and his people a permanent homeland, instead of a wandering band of raiders, once Mario becomes ruler of the kingdom. Through this partnership, Mario gives Bowser ways around the Mushroom Kingdom's defenses so that Bowser's forces can invade the kingdom quickly. Mario then kicks out Bowser's forces in a brief show his abilities, defeats Bowser, and rescues the princess. Peach being a benevolent ruler, grants Bowser mercy in the form of banishment only to have comeback again. Eventually, as Mario's plan predicts, the Toads will grow tired of Bowser's continued invasions and call on Mario to lead them in a revolution against Princess Peach. When the revolution succeeds, Bowser will then come forward and pledge his fealty to Mario because Bowser cannot best Mario in battle. Mario will then make good on his promise by giving Bowser and his people the badlands of the mushroom kingdom.

    Marcus Fenix has a huge Barbie collection. inorite?
  • AwkwardLoser - March 30, 2014 1:43 p.m.

    I think Bill from The Last of Us is hiding something, I just can't quite put a finger on it.
  • GamesRadarCollanderCooper - March 30, 2014 1:13 p.m.

    How the fuck do you just nonchalantly announce Greg's departure? What happened? Where can we expect to see him next?
  • g1rldraco7 - March 31, 2014 7:44 a.m.

    It's Hollander Cooper, the Jackal of GR. Just like Brenden Sinclair on GameSpot when he announced the end of The HotSpot and how Tom Magrino was chopped.
  • GamesRadarCollanderCooper - March 31, 2014 4:48 p.m.

    Honestly, I don't even find the guys on RadioRadar to be that insightful. I mostly listen because I loved TalkRadar so much, but I think now I might stop.
  • Jackonomics2.0 - March 30, 2014 9:47 a.m.

    QOTW: I want to know where the fuck Mason from Black ops 1 and 2 has been. You get pulled into a trap as woods thinking your about to shoot menandez only to find out it was Mason. If you didn't head shot him, he would reveal himself in the ending as not dead. Where the fuck has he been? I want this to be the plot of Black ops 3. Later Greg.
  • Rash86 - March 29, 2014 9:02 p.m.

    QOTW: After the first game, Crash Bandicoot murdered his girlfriend Tawna following the birth of their love child, Coco. Crash then raised Coco as his sister, never again mentioning Tawna, even though she has Tawna's blonde hair.

    Tali from Mass Effect has a secret. Forget about that photo of her on Shepard's desk. That's just a lie so Shepard can sleep at night. What's really under that mask is a gooey purple Predator face. Since Shepard is such a pro, he didn't even flinch when he removed Tali's mask, just so that he didn't look like a giant douche. Also, since for some reason the Games Radar crew has hard time admitting it, somehow, but Leland Yee is a Democrat. Seems like an important thing to note.
  • Sinosaur - March 29, 2014 6:02 p.m.

    I'm not sure his political party is actually an important thing to note, partially because the entire political party thing is a mess. Might be important if other people in his party turn up to be involved, but otherwise he's just sort of a shitbag. I also don't feel emphasizing "Republican" like some liberals do when a Rep gets outed for something is worthwhile. The party fucked up putting them there, but it's far more important to focus on the fact that the individual is responsible, not use them to explode everyone who they were ever friends with.
  • vent - March 30, 2014 4:20 p.m.

    "Might be important if other people in his party turn up to be involved" Two other Democrat lawmakers were involved, Ron Calderon, and Rod Wright.
  • DarthEnderX - March 29, 2014 4:39 p.m.

    QotW: The Ghostbusters(from various games) aren't capturing ghosts to protect mankind from their evil hauntings. Their capturing them to use their powers for themselves when they die to become all powerful superghosts. Obviously, Egon has become the first one to ascend to undead godhood.
