The Content

It's been a crazy week at the GR offices. Mikel shaved off his beard and broke the hearts of fans nationwide, Henry had to watch horrible CES press events, Chris injured his right arm somehow, and Michael Grimm was forced to appear on a podcast. Fortunately, we were still all in the mood for a podcast, talking about evil clones, visiting the doctor, and our beloved community.

UPDATE: Due to demand, here's the most recent picture of Mikel without his beard (though he has since shaved off the mustache and took out the scary contacts).

In the Community

After some confusion, we successfully found your answers to last week's question of the week (What's your Anti-game of the year?) on the  forum. And we got a couple pieces of fun fan art from users Soggysage and Codystovall. You can check out years of official fan art in the thread, here

    Gotta admit I was happy Coop wasn't there. I feel like he's trying a bit too hard to be funny. And he bashed the Humble Indie Bundle seriously, who cares you can get duplicate games, you could buy the whole thing for a dollar if you wanted to. The charity is just icing on the cake. Well anyways I still would like to see Coop every now and then.

    I listen to every episode of Talkradar. It keeps me reading the site more than anything else/introduced me to the site. Never stop doing it. MIKEL GROW YOUR G*DDAMN GLORIOUS BEARD BACK YOU BEARD MURDERED.

    Mikel looks crazy scary in that picture. I was wondering if he would ever shave it off.

    No Cooper? But he's the best part.......
  • Ridgley - January 19, 2012 6:39 a.m.

    If by best part you mean best part to make you want to shove screwdrivers in your ears.
  • ProfessorLeighton - January 15, 2012 3:07 p.m.

    Best episode in a while

    This is another example of your bias against beards and companies who make games with beards in them! For years now you have had issue with the hairier games out their and the fact that Mikel has shaved his beard has shown that he is on the take from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. Sham on you and blah blah blah! Biased etc.

    the more you shave it, the more it grows back

    I definitely approve of a feature about games from the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube generation that didn't work well with the PS3/360/Wii generation.
  • marioman50 - January 14, 2012 8:08 p.m.

    I don't think I like this non-beard direction Talkradar appears to be going in.
  • LordZarlon - January 14, 2012 7:28 p.m.

    Your not cute and hugable anymore Mikel. This must be what you looked like when you got turned into a zombie on dead island. We never did get to see your zombie form.
  • festerblatz82 - January 14, 2012 5:28 p.m.

    Almost perfect cast.
  • MonocledYaoGuai - January 14, 2012 4:23 p.m.

    Mikel without a beard? How horrifying.
  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - January 14, 2012 3:08 p.m.

    I bet that if that picture of Mikel had just been put up there, no captions or anything, nobody would have recognized him. I know I sure wouldn't have.
  • profile0000 - January 14, 2012 11:21 a.m.

    Whoa, no beard Mikel. It must be an omen.
  • BladedFalcon - January 14, 2012 11:10 a.m.

    Yay! We have picture of Mikel without beard! :D And WOW!! He really looks like a whole different person XD Though the contacts certainly have a lot to do with it... He definitely looks like mikel's evil clone with them :P And just because I'm greedy... can we has one without the 'stache? :3
  • fart master - January 14, 2012 8:05 a.m.

    what's with the new slide-show thing for the fan art. I can't read any of it.
  • SPAZFM - January 14, 2012 7:30 a.m.

    A symbol died to day no longer will Mikle's beard go off and save orphans from erupting volcanoes.
  • flabslapper - January 14, 2012 6:30 a.m.

    Thanks Grimm for referencing my video I made about Reparez' beard! I can't believe you remember that lol!
