    Good Bye Brett. I love you (Total homo). Please return for the occasional episode.
  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - September 6, 2011 11:30 a.m.

    worst episode ever. I actually started to cry.
  • zer0hvk - September 5, 2011 9:20 p.m.

    This is kind of a dorky thing to say, I guess, but, through the years that I've listened to you guys, I've really identified with who you are, and what you like, so, in a way, I kind of think of you as friends of mine, so, it's really sad to see one of you go. It kind of feels like a friend of mine is leaving. It must be tough for you guys at Radar, but I know you'll keep pushing onward and kicking ass, as always. Please do. And Chris, we love you too, don't you dare leave GR, too. We'll miss you, a lot, Brett. Thanks for everything. I've learnt a lot from you, Have fun at CAPCOM and DON'T BE A STRANGER TO THE PODCAST. Hugs all the way from sunny México.

    Thank you, Brett.
  • zanthox - September 5, 2011 4:30 p.m.

    The baby sound at the very end turned my tears into laughter.
  • SillyPigeon - September 5, 2011 5:39 a.m.

    Goodbye Brett, don't forget us when you're the final boss in Street Fighter 5
  • moredhel_1 - September 4, 2011 8:49 p.m.

    Brett, it was great to finally meet you at PAX Prime! I'm sorry we got booted from GameWorks VIP section, I wanted to say goodbye to you in person. That said, A) best of luck to you at CAPCOM, and B) thank you for all the tremendous laughs, Midwest stories, and just all-around awesomesauce that you gave to all of us in the TDar podcasts. Your laugh alone is worth listening for. :) The podcasts have gotten me through some fairly crummy temp jobs, and lots of lawn-mowing. Also, your and Antista's anecdotes, stories, ramblings, and pop-culture references have single-handedly validated my entire 80's youth. Thanks for all you've done w/your amazing articles and passion, too. You're a great writer, and I'll miss you dearly, as will we all. Peace, brotha!
  • FunnyNameHere - September 4, 2011 4:14 p.m.

    Bye Bret, come visit soon.
  • mikeydo00 - September 4, 2011 1:26 p.m.

    I actually like the 1 podcast perweek format it gives me time to listen to the latest podcasts, yours and OXM's. Then when I'm done those I can listen to the older casts. LOVE IT EITHER WAY THO
  • DarthEnderX - September 4, 2011 1 p.m.

    I just want to know, in what way was the two episodes a week a "failed experiment"? Personally, I've been loving it. We've been getting more podcast per week. And getting my fix twice a week means less withdrawal. It's too bad. Not sure why you're abandoning it.
  • CanadianBeaverHunter - September 4, 2011 10:11 a.m.

    That PC Gamer traitor was great in this episode, especially his impression of Brett's first day at Capcom.
  • Peloun - September 4, 2011 10:04 a.m.

    why is everyone leaving gamesradar :( I thought it was the best job in the world
  • NightCrawler_358 - September 4, 2011 9:55 a.m.

    I'm going to dearly need a different source for my snobby-ness intake from now on... I hope TDar turn out okay!
  • BuckleYoGoddamnSafetyBelt - September 4, 2011 9:44 a.m.

    The pageant skit was great, please do more. Also, sh*tshoes. That was the hardest I've laughed during a talkradar episode in quite some time.
  • HowdyCowboyCheesesBurger0911 - September 4, 2011 6:40 a.m.

    I liked the improv
  • HowdyCowboyCheesesBurger0911 - September 4, 2011 6:37 a.m.

    I liked two podcasts a week, I'd listen to a new Tdar everyday if you could do that.
  • Yeager1122 - September 3, 2011 9:57 p.m.

    Goodye Brett thanks for all the laughs on Tdar going on to gamesradar just wont be the same anymore.
  • psycrosis - September 3, 2011 8:12 p.m.

    This is bittersweet...... Brett is leaving...but he gives me a present by telling me again when i FIRST started listening...makes it sadder than ever...... WILL be missed
