What’s the dumbest in-game collectible you’ve hunted down?
Got something to add to our Top 7 list of horseshit collectibles? Of course you do! “Catchin’ ‘em all” is hardly exclusive to the OCD gamer. Think back to when you were younger, back when you couldn’t afford a lot of games. You probably took great pleasure in scouring games long since completed looking for hidden this-and-that’s. Let us know in our forums, and we might read your response LIVE on TalkRadar 122!

In the office

In case you were stupid enough to not listen last week, your humble hosts surprised Charlie with a trip out to Las Vegas for a most scandalous Bachelor Party. Sort of makes anything that happened “in the office” pretty irrelevant, right?

Above: Let's hear it for the man!

Above: Escalated drinking

Above: Mikel decides to start smoking!

Above: This can only get better...

Above: Now that's a VEGAS WARRIOR!

Above: D'awwwwwwww


In the community

Above: Thanks to batman5273 and flabslapper for The Hangover treatment. 

Above: Click here to see more of the parody

Above: Another amazing send up from batman5273. (Oh, and Happy Anniversary Craig!)

Above: zigs is artistically ordained

Above: People are still mocking Chris and his with a face full of Novocaine. Not sure if we get what Justheretowinshit is referencing... hope Artie Lange's okay?

Above: Now this is much easier to get! Thanks to sternparez

Above: graboids illustrates an old joke we dare not repeat here

Above: Not sure why TheElephantManchurianCandidate's MS Paint pic makes us laugh so much. But it does so POSTED!

    Just thought i'd point out that "ma'am" (as in the female version of sir) when pronounced with an english accent (such as Jorge's from Halo: Reach) could be mistaken for the american "mom". It does sound completely different mind you, and it's very unusual to confuse the two. Jorge actually refers to Halsey as "ma'am" in Reach. Not mom, they say mum in most countries outside of america. So, yeah, it didn't expect you to know anything. (at least not during that scene).
  • DoctorCrazy - October 7, 2010 11:29 p.m.

    LMAO The Ringer picture made me laugh so hard, my balls fell off.
  • TdarsChoplifterPilot - October 7, 2010 4:13 a.m.

    Did anyone else catch the "Trolls in the dungeon" crack. Because I thought it was funny. Thought you ought to know.
  • JADENkOTOR - October 4, 2010 9:30 p.m.

    @ Tyler: Good thats what I like to hear. As long as you kept going thats all that matters. You can't go rookie status in Vegas baby.
  • KiwiCommander - October 4, 2010 2:23 p.m.

    Is it just me or did you guys broke that window (on the D'waaaa picture)
  • batmanboy11 - October 4, 2010 1:49 a.m.

    Great episode! And those Hangover pictures are awesome!
  • ScrEAMaPiLLar - October 4, 2010 12:04 a.m.

    Mmm get me some of that gooey mp3 pleasing audio. My week is complete.
  • Zeb364 - October 3, 2010 9:21 p.m.

    Another amazing episode of Talkradar brought to us in part by Blade Kitten! :P By the way, Batman5273 and flabslapper, you guys kick all kinds of ass.
  • Justheretowinshit - October 3, 2010 4:22 p.m.

    Holy shit, a week after I get the T-dar treatment in QotW my horrible horrible shitty 'shop gets on the landing page? I'm honored. I just couldn't get it out of my head that a drugged up CAntista closely resembled a skinny drugged up Artie Lange and went for the super poor taste knife joke. Hooray me!
  • Strangleme - October 3, 2010 3:54 p.m.

    Sweet episode as usual. Chris you better not pick only the short phonecalls!!! I WILL BE HEARD!!!!!!
  • TheElephantManchurianCandidate - October 3, 2010 2:10 p.m.

    If I knew my pic was gonna end up on the Tdar page I would have spent more time on Weegee's edges. But thanks a lot for putting it there :)
  • sternparez - October 3, 2010 12:34 p.m.

    that was actually better than the film, and the film's good!
  • sleepy92ismypsn - October 3, 2010 12:55 a.m.

    @Brett I'm sorry, it just sounded like you tried it once during the 24 hour marathon and never gave it a fair chance. I could see how some people dislike it. The free roaming can be dull at times but I always have fun in gang matches. It took me 160 hours but I finally got the platinum trophy in RDR and most of that 160 hours is from multiplayer. Since you guys are games journalists and you didn't like something I put all that time into I kind of feel like I wasted my time. Maybe it's just me who has bad taste in online multiplayer.The only games I've fully ranked up in online are RDR and Bioshock 2. I mostly did it for the Platinums and the only reason to go back to them was for DLC. Maybe I'll see you guys online in Black Ops, Rock Band 3 and Gran Turismo 5.
  • TBag - October 3, 2010 12:16 a.m.

    Great Show
  • Stabby_Joe - October 2, 2010 10:11 p.m.

    Despite all you said, Dead Rising 2 was still enjoyable.
  • GamesRadarBrettElston - October 2, 2010 8:25 p.m.

    @sleepy We just don't care for RDR's multiplayer. Not putting it down and saying anyone who DOES like it is wrong, it just doesn't click with any of us. That said, I've enjoyed matches that R* puts together under controlled circumstances, where they're always herding us from one match to the next, but every time I/we try to play online it devolves into free roaming dullness. There's definitely fun to be had but it continually eludes us.
  • SillyPigeon - October 2, 2010 3:57 p.m.

    My boy sternparez will be delighted. Gutted he didn't make the page last week. Redemption! BLAM!!!
  • philipshaw - October 2, 2010 9:21 a.m.

    3 hour podcast,this will be a good break from Dead Rising 2
  • sleepy92ismypsn - October 2, 2010 8:21 a.m.

    Tdar, I love you. Thanks for putting in the Twisted Metal 2 music from the Hong Kong Krunch level near the end of the podcast. It's the little things like this that makes Talkradar the best podcast ever.
  • frmonth - October 2, 2010 7:54 a.m.

    Wow I have a massive hang over from drinking straight vodka so this podcast is totally needed and very relevant.
