TalkRadar 20 – let's get critical

Holy crow, T-Dar just turned 20! To commemorate this trivial milestone we’ve invited our very first guest, Dan Amrich of OXM, back on for another romp through the cussy, gritty world of TalkRadar. Most of the podcast is spent tearing down shockingly awful Uwe Boll scenes and the cheesiest, head-asplodingest videogame songs of all time.

We may be in a topics recession, but don’t worry – we have a surplus in hilarity!

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.. Worst scenes in Uwe Boll movies – in Germany, box office bombs you

Cheesiest videogame songs EVER – hear songs so bad they must have sprung from Hitler’s trumpet

Xbox Live maintenance – it’s down on Monday, so don’t try to log in or the next red ring you see will be the tenth level of hell

Plus I pose another question to the crew, with the hopes that you, dear listener, will hop in our forum and answer as well.

Question 4: What was the first game you stayed up all night playing? 



Quote of the week:

    I still love this episode.
  • Spybreak8 - April 11, 2011 4:30 a.m.

    I just listened to 146 and with the whole remembering where the best moments of Tdar I went back and listened to 49. Then "hyperlinked" from that podcast to here via how much you guys loved it, and well #20 is kinda infamous so I'm way late but I'm throwing this on my device now!
  • SparkyBobOmb - September 30, 2008 3:22 a.m.

    Yes, the 'useless' chatting about nothing videogames-related is what keeps me coming back to the t'dar over and over. a 90-minute podcast from you guys = funny.
  • ELpork - September 27, 2008 7:44 a.m.

    Brett you look so happy to be editing.
  • TENAXIS (PSN) - September 27, 2008 3:34 a.m.

    yeah!! new podcast!!! cant wait to hear it!!
  • CrazedPenguin - September 26, 2008 9 p.m.

    Wo0t!! PS: Great job on the editing, Brett! Didn't sound any different from the other 'casts.
  • GamesRadarBrettElston - September 26, 2008 8:57 p.m.

    Direct all thanks of Early Podcast Posting to me. I shall see to it that Chris quits scribbling love notes to Animators Weekly instead of editing the podcast. I kid, I kid.
  • Tasty_Pasta - September 26, 2008 8:43 p.m.

    I love when T-Dar is out early!! :D
  • Curtis_Stone - September 26, 2008 8:15 p.m.

    WHAAAAAAAAAAA? Soooo excited!!!
  • kerzikstan420 - October 4, 2008 10:24 p.m.

    YOUR MOM! Ohhhhh! Dan from OXM rocks.
  • Keilimanjaro - September 30, 2008 5:44 p.m.

    Yeah, I agree with SparkyBobOmb and TedDidlio, the banter is often the most entertaining part of the podcast, and I have no qualms with the podcast length I listen to it on my ipod during my hour and a half drive to uni in the morning, so speak for as long as you can be bothered speaking. T-Dar FTW.

    i got chubs for this episode. brett did a fine job of editing. but ive got to say guys, seriously dont try to cut it down at all. if theres like, 15 minutes of banter youre not sure we want to hear? we want to fucking hear it. i look forward to talkradar every week more that i do almost any tv show (save for tim and eric) if it was three hours, i would be ecstatic. seriously, dont overedit, go on as long as you can. fuck it, do 2 shows a week, 5, 7, i cant fucking get enough. but great episode, it was sick to see dan in there. i found you guys through the KOXM podcast. Sincerely, Duke Picklebeat & Friends

  • TrIp13G - September 26, 2008 9:38 p.m.

  • Xenath - September 26, 2008 8:58 p.m.

    It's like an orgasm to my ears....but there's guys instead oh women and I'm not enjoying it as much though this podcast is epic.
  • BHT128 - September 26, 2008 8:16 p.m.

    The Uwe Boll movie article hath inspired me to Have my friends over, get drunk, and watch a couple of his movies, IN THAT ORDER!
  • EvilNinjaSquibidyflop - September 26, 2008 7:33 p.m.
