TalkRadar 17

TalkRadar welcomes its very first industry guest this week, Mr. Seth Killian of Capcom fame. He’s involved with all things community, primarily at the Capcom Unity blog and jaw-droppingly hardcore Evo tournaments. Far more interesting than that, however, are his tales of Street Fighter hustling at arcades, infiltrating E3 and harassing the company enough to finally give him a job. See kids, you too can live the dream.

So yeah, he’s got a lot to say, plus we talk dogs, the week’s releases (Viva Pinata, suckers!) and true tales of controller smashing. Yes, it actually happens.

Explicit Content Within! Persons with delicate ears should definitely not listen, as they will hear edgy no-no words freely spoken on South Park and HBO.

Top 7... canine companions  - gaming’s best dogs. Yes, we’re serious.

Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise – raising papery animals is serious business

Spore – it came out this week. So anyway...

Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe – after several harsh words for MK, Seth admits MKvDCU might be slightly okay-ish

Street Fighter IV – if you’re not excited about it yet, maybe you’re dead and need to call an ambulance to haul your dead ass to the graveyard

Art of the infinite combo – despite being fun to watch, they’re a pain in the ass and Seth’s not having any part of ‘em. Hear why...

10 LEGO games we’d love to see – Mikel spent two weeks making this, so read it four or five times

Destroying controllers in slow-motion – if we were made of plastic, this video would be impossible to watch. It’s somehow grotesque even when the subjects are inanimate casings.



Quote of the week:
“If [Spore] gets its cock-fangs into me, I’ll have no time to play anything else”

Above: The review code was trapped inside! How inhumane 

Above: A bevy of tech hurdles kept PC editor T-Nag from appearing on the podcast 

Above: Chris pays his rent in CASH 

Above: Seth was promised a speedy podcast that ended before nightfall. Um, don’t turn around... 

Above: Our building is weird

    I love the fact that their Podcast keep getting longer and Longer
  • Smeggs - September 6, 2008 1:45 a.m.

    I love how most of the podcasts are beer driven =P
  • Johnny6Gun - September 6, 2008 4:14 a.m.

    First muscle fuck and now sperm burn. Just splendid. This podcast was a real treat for the Capcom fans. Actually, most of these podcasts are a real treat. Keep 'em coming. Whatever is that upbeat, 8-bit sounding tune that the casts start with? It's been bothering me for a while, now.
  • NintendoNerd655 - September 6, 2008 1:12 p.m.

    Brett you feel the same way I do about Half-Life 2 lol. Another great podcast!
  • iluvmyDS - September 6, 2008 2:57 p.m.

    C'mon Brett, don't hate on Half-Life, unless y'know, you like the baby sound effect.
  • fffliiippper - September 7, 2008 12:42 a.m.

    every time i come to the website and see a new podcast i jump for joy and wet myself a little. keep em long man, i love listening to em
  • Johnny6Gun - September 7, 2008 3:27 a.m.

    It's from a Charlie Brown television special. Not one of the mainstream ones like the X-Mas special, Great Pumpkin, Thanksgiving or Race For Your Life, but one I haven't seen for a while. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
  • Schuultz - September 7, 2008 7:05 p.m.

    I'd love a list of the background music for each TalkRadar... There are always some awesome songs in there that'd it love to find out what they are..
  • NintendoNerd655 - September 8, 2008 10:17 p.m.

    I want the talkradar intro in rock band 2 dlc lol.
  • king_m783 - September 8, 2008 10:17 p.m.

    this is my absolute favorite podcast. Hands down
  • GamesRadarChrisAntista - September 8, 2008 10:22 p.m.

    The opening is from Charlie Brown's All-Stars. The voice of Snoopy died this week... I was sad. Again, if you really wanna know what the music is, head over to the forums. If no one else can tell you, I certainly will.
  • Tasty_Pasta - September 5, 2008 9:38 p.m.

    This is good enough to take me away from the Socom Beta. That's how awesome it is.
  • ELpork - September 5, 2008 9:56 p.m.

    So we should ask Chris for money.....ok.
  • Cynwyddon - September 5, 2008 10:05 p.m.

    Chris is the coolest guy I know.
  • GamesRadarCarolynGudmundson - September 5, 2008 11:01 p.m.

    A pigxie is a swanana-rashberry hybrid.
  • GamesRadarChrisAntista - September 6, 2008 2:29 a.m.

    I should clarify... that's my rent money. During it's scant few hours from bank to landlord, the podcast was the most fun its ever had
  • Schuultz - September 6, 2008 3:26 a.m.

    looking at that second picture I realize why Mikel was talking so little... he had dislocated his jaw, poor guy... xD
