Ghost Trick review
More than just Phoenix Wright's spiritual successor


Got a failed attempt to get a girlfriend into games?
Excuse us for further perpetuating the schlubby gamer stereotype, but c’mon, you know what we mean. You love a lady, both of you want to spend more time together, but you want to play more games. You tried to bring her in on the act… Didn’t work did it? Don’t worry, the first attempt is always the most dismal. And hilarious. We don’t want to exclude our four or five female listeners, so if you’ve got a perspective from the other side of the scenario we’d love to hear it. (Pardon our misogyny, but a lady trying to get an uninterested guy into games? That’s a like a fairy tale, only less believable.) Guys and gals, let us know in our forums and we might read your response live on TalkRadar 135!

    I wanted to ask the same thing ^ The comedian is hilarious. He has had segments in the breaks before and Cantista hastalked about him in a previous podcast but i cannot remember his name. Excellent podcast as usual. Definitely the best one this year.
  • Peanut726 - January 19, 2011 3:46 a.m.

    Does anyone know the name of the comedian in the breaks during the podcast? I liked his video game bit and i want to hear more. Great podcast as always by the way!!!

    Devastated, after being fired from my dream job sorting Excel sheets, I came across an enchanted blues guitar that granted me the ability to perform magical card "feats" in seedy back alleys. While on the run from otherwordly folk sorcerers, I composed several hit incantations under different aliases, all of which have gained great popularity in all of the mainstream occult circles and dingy, local taverns. You may have heard an interpolation of my hit single, Bulletball, that's a bulletball. I'm just glad to be here. Sincerely yours, Sandy

    Henry's beard must feel inadequate next to Mikel's.
  • Gabelvampir - January 15, 2011 11:11 p.m.

    I love TalkRadar, but what's so funny about german articles that seemingly every American cracks up when someone uses der, die oder das, wrong most of the time.
  • GrandMoffBubbles - January 15, 2011 7:49 p.m.

    Bad News: my iPod just crapped out. Good News: I'm buying an iPod Touch and it supports the new GamesRadar App. Woo Hoo! Thx you guys for the awesome fan service!!!
