Once again, GamesRadar sprints headlong into territory others fear to tread


What game did you waste your vacation on? 
Here at GamesRadar, we obviously consider gaming to be a way of life, and certainly not a "distraction" or a “waste of time.” That said, we’ve certainly encountered our fair share of games that made time slip away seemingly unnoticed. In a manner even you wouldn’t consider responsible? But this is more specific. What’s a game that ate up almost all your vacation time? Doesn’t have to be summer either. Let us know in our forums and we may read your response live on TalkRadar 116!

Want to listen to TalkRadar on your mobile device? We reccomend Stitcher (it's way better than iTunes!)

    An antisemitic remark and major spoiler to The Expendables all in the first fifteen minutes of this week's podcast. Way to go. I was planning to listen next week but I think I'll be busy meaning "Jewish business" somewhere.
  • Geminiman82 - August 23, 2010 1:16 p.m.

    Nice cast guys but you seemed kinda bitchy to each other this week LOL! See you all at PAX in a another week!
  • GamesRadarJuniorWildlifeEditor - August 23, 2010 1:11 p.m.

    Thats pretty funny.
  • kazimierz3000 - August 23, 2010 5:55 a.m.

    Best podcasts ever!!! Keep up the great work!!!
  • batmanboy11 - August 23, 2010 3:15 a.m.

    This was my first TalkRadar ever, and it made me sorry that I haven't listened until now. I am in the proccess of listening to episodes 110-113 though (listened to 115 and then 114, up next is 110).
  • CH3BURASHKA - August 22, 2010 9:53 p.m.

    The new Duke looks like a fat Hulk Hogan.
  • grizzly311 - August 22, 2010 1 p.m.

    New TDar AND gaming marathon. Almost too much. You're too good to us sometimes!
  • philipshaw - August 22, 2010 8:47 a.m.

    I was away at the weekend so only downloading this now,can't wait to listen
  • NathanXplosion - August 22, 2010 4:57 a.m.

    That fucking Chessmaster music gets me every time.
  • elpurplemonkey - August 22, 2010 1:14 a.m.

    Tdar is the only thing that gets me through my job. Also, the wilde man is in the house!
  • linko9 - August 21, 2010 11:59 p.m.

    Woooooooow. I've been listening to podcasts while playing Picross 3D (sweet game), and when I finally found this one, I was quite happy. Very entertaining and somewhat informative, and you guys all have personalities that aren't motivated by trying to sound like sweet fuckin' brahs who are much cooler than anyone who listens to the podcast (unlike quite a few other podcasts). Keep up the good work, and don't do no ho ass shit.
  • MrDuracraft - August 21, 2010 9:10 p.m.

    I had the same problem while watching Scott Pilgrim where I would enjoy the movie half the time and say "THAT'S NOT HOW IT HAPPENED" the other half. I must watch it again.
  • ElDiabloBlanco - August 21, 2010 3:45 p.m.

    Hell ya Talk Radar!
  • DrRock - August 21, 2010 12:46 p.m.

    Thanks for marathon on Halo last nite. Now off to pull weeds and listen to Tdar.

    Saw Hank 'the mothertrucking' Tank at SummerSlam, who knew he liked wrestling!
