TalkRadar 36 - TV casualty

In this week’s thrilling installment, TalkRadar brings on a special mystery guest to finally settle a question that’s been burning in the minds of our fans for months: What exactly the hell happened between Chris Antista and Tyler Wilde? Once that’s settled, it’s on to our usual dissection of this week’s Top 7, followed by a frank discussion of why we chose what we chose for our Greatest games on every platform feature and spirited discourse on a couple of articles written by GR’s sister site Edge Online.

After that, this week’s TV theme emerges with drunken ramblings about Lost, old episodes of Roseanne and a bizarre artifact from the days when Norm MacDonald still had a steady job.

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.

A surprise guest – WHO COULD IT BE!?!?

Oh, it’s Tyler Wilde. Huh.

Above: Tyler makes up for lost time by drinking more than all the other hosts combined

Top 7... Best beginnings – The opening levels that stuck in our heads longer than any others.

The greatest game on every platform – Postmortem on this week’s most inflammatory article.

MTV Music Generator – Actually only mentioned as a pretext for dredging up a musical embarrassment from Mikel’s past.

The 60 Biggest Selling Games of the Last 12 Months – GR’s sister site Edge Online counts down the hits. Surprise! Some of them are for Wii.

Lost – So apparently this is a popular TV show now? We live under rocks.

Sitcoms that reference games – Some actually get it right. TOO right.

The Making of... The Gabriel Knight Trilogy – Cue Charlie Barrattgasm.

Mega64 – Were supposed to get a plug and a link in last week's article, but didn't. Sorry for the oversight, guys.

Above: In case there was any confusion last week, Mega64 did this

Question 20: What’s your least favorite game in your favorite series? 


Quote of the week: "The GameBoy Color is a console that had titles developed exclusively for it."
"Yeah, too bad most of them are Shrek games."

    Christ, that clip from Norm made me really uncomfortable with it's stupidity - and I can normally sit through some REALLY dumb shit. How the mighty have fallen...

    Haha, gotta say don't stop it with those cheesy video game ads and wow what's up with Nintendo and rap (Mario, Zelda, and prob other game ads for example). I gotta say that's one reason why I stopped watching Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, oh look another person has been sent through time for this episode. Gets old fast! Love terminator too, sad... Oh, upcoming terminator game, slightly interested. One last thing, Chronno Trigger was one of my most fav games and I'm not huge into RPGs either. More of a strategy guy and yea Renegade was good at the time but now when you look back on it you're like wow it did sorta suck.

    @mjmont-it's about killing EGM. Hence the dog's name being Edward Grant Mondesanto. Ulysses Prantz the 1st is 1Up, and Hugo Dotecom, who bought them. it's all there, it makes a lot of sense when you see it. That was a delicious opening. Remind me to send Chris hate mail.

    Great podcast. But you guys should keep Tyler away from the liquor cabinet.
  • JoeMasturbaby - January 31, 2009 1:43 a.m.

    oh my ghandi! finally. no good cartoons on tonight. glad i got this.
  • grappler51 - January 30, 2009 11:03 p.m.

    Finally!! I was afraid it wasn't going to come out today!
  • Ravenbom - January 30, 2009 11:03 p.m.

    Mikal doesn't love all his children equally, clearly he loves Jack more, and I can't blame him. Love how Wild Turkey becomes Wylde's Turkey in the photos.
  • Zaphers - January 30, 2009 10:26 p.m.

    Antista has the hairest hair I've ever seen.
  • Jax - January 30, 2009 9:38 p.m.

    Sweet Mama Jama! Finally
  • Dr.Mr.Gamer - January 30, 2009 9:34 p.m.

    wow this was one of the longest waits for the podcast ever for some reoson.
  • ClusterShart - January 30, 2009 9:29 p.m.

    Praise Jebus, it is here
  • MrQuatloo - February 5, 2009 2:14 a.m.

    also the norm bit was halarious.
  • MrQuatloo - February 5, 2009 2:12 a.m.

    for the record this is in no way my favorite podcast, not to say that it was entirely bad but i rarely laughed and all the Lost talk was kind of boaring. I did Love3 the funny video game references in Rosane.
  • DSOUCY - February 4, 2009 7:55 p.m.

    Great show love it. anybody know what episode of CSI that clip was from??
  • SpecialtyDrone - February 3, 2009 6:31 p.m.

    "All I'm saying is: Depression: we're in it." Died.
  • SlightlyBetterName - February 3, 2009 12:33 a.m.

    ^^ Exactly What I'm talking about.
  • SlightlyBetterName - February 3, 2009 12:33 a.m.

    Holy shit the Mystery host was drunk as fuck.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - February 2, 2009 7:10 p.m.

    I remember very little of what I said on this podacst. I'll try to be less drunk as hell next time I'm on.
