TalkRadar 188 - Happy Slack Friday

The Hosts

Special Guests: Listen to find out!

The Content

It's a short week here at the GamesRadar offices as we all prepare to stuff ourselves stupid with turkey, gravy, alcohol, and awkward family conversations about politics. Because we're busy pretending to be sick to skip our family dinners, it's a shorter than normal episode this week - sorry! But hey, that doesn't mean it's short on fun (Full disclosure: it might be slightly short on fun)! We don't talk about new releases because HA HA HA there really aren't any besides Zelda, which we talked about last week. Instead, get ready to hear us run through the Top 7... most giving characters in gaming in celebration of this week's holiday before going through all of the awesome Black Friday deals you've probably already slept through (before buying them on Amazon in the afternoon).

In the Community

The question of the week was "What game are you unfortunately putting off for the time being?" and there are a ton of answers on the forum

Fan art has had a nice week thanks to codystovall, who whipped out the ollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll' sketchbook to crank out three awesome bits of art.

    So at the end of the episode Chris mentions that he and Brett did a video commentary for Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. For the life of me I can't find this video anywhere. I googled as hard as I could and nothing. Anyone have a link where I can find this?

    Same here. And it's driving me nuts, because the one they did for regular MvC 3 was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Where is it, people!

    Few things: - Love the podcast. - Thanks for thinking my avatar is cute Mikel! - Yes I'm a girl. - I have been trying to get a job, but since I live by a bunch of small business, getting a job isn't easy. - Not only do New Yorkers love the New York song, 'I Love New York' shirts are easy to obtain.

    It's true, no one lives up here in the arctic Canadian wastelands... Just yesterday my little brother was taken away by a polar bear.
  • Pytor - November 26, 2011 9:26 a.m.

    You know, Chris got a FULL ON ROAST! He should be required to stay away for at least a month! Geez! ;)
  • Hypermonkey262 - November 26, 2011 5:17 a.m.
