TalkRadar 31 – pretty pretty

2008 is nearly over, and thusly there aren’t as many new games to discuss. But fear not! We instead recount the prettiest (read: most colorful) games of the year, then ponder aloud how Nintendo was able to sell 800,000 Wiis last month (until we found it was actually 2.2 million) and subject you to an NES song so bizarrely long you’ll wonder how anyone could stand it.

Plus a big ol’ community segment for all you dedicated listeners.

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… prettiest games of 2008 – what, there are colors other than brown?

Home launches… shhh! – witness the lifeless spectacle that is Empty Mall Simulator ‘08

Persona 4 is out – Henry says “it’s good!”

Saints Row 2 Japanese commercial – a massive pile of WTF?

Question 15: To which franchise are you hopelessly, blindly devoted?


Quote of the week:
"The problem with Home is that it is."

    Talkradar( and a few other sites that shall not be named) is the best thing to listen to while I slave away at a 3D model for my university degree, sort of reminds me why I'm doing what I'm doing...with penis jokes and racism :P But yea, good stuff!
