TalkRadar 30 – co-starring Jeff Gerstmann!

In case you missed TalkRadar 28 (and shame on you if you did), we couldn’t fathom why Giant Bomb awarded MK vs DCU a five star rating (their highest score). That led to forumites on both sites to start a-feudin’ an’ a-fussin’ about integrity and other such nonsense, so we simply called Jeff Gerstmann up and now you can hear the results of said conversation. Hint: we’re bitter enemies now. For real.

Plus we’ll cover Sonic Unleashed, Banjo-Kazooie and a little bit of Prince of Persia, as well as games none of us will get to until 2009. We’re also announcing the winners of the SmackDown! create-a-wrestler contest, so 29 lucky listeners will soon have their own copy of the game.

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... games you won’t get to until 2009 – perhaps the most misread headline in all of GamesRadar. Read it twice!

T-Dar talks to Giant Bomb about MK vs DCU – also, why gaming sites apparently have to hate each other with a passion not seen since T-Rex married Triceratops

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts – how did it turn out? Chris and Gerstmann weigh in

The horribleness of Castlevania Judgment – we can’t sigh loud enough

SmackDown! contest winners announced – listen to see if you won. If you entered, you probably won

Question 14: What game will forever be on your "play it later" list? 


Quote of the week:
“Tomb Raider came out when the industry was growing its first pubes”

    i can easily explain why Halo3 beat GeoW2: The multiplayer works. I used to passionately play Gears1, but the new one is just almost unplayable online! I can't remember the last time such a high budget game had so flawed online. It's not even the gameplay, it's the ridiculous lag! And a good chunk of the CoD4 bunch went over to CoD5, so its audience split, giving free way to H3 to dominate.
