TalkRadar’s 37th episode closes out a week tinged by two strange and insignificant controversies. First, baby games suddenly became relevant, after the babbling in Baby Pals was accused of harboring a hidden Islamic message. Then, (some of) the reviews for Killzone 2 hit almost a month ahead of the game’s release, prompting a cavalcade of outrage from people who felt the 9s and 10s were either too high, too low or just generally suspect.

As always, TalkRadar is there to jump in and discuss these current events as drunkenly and belligerently as possible, along with this week’s Top 7, crappy old voice-acting from crappy old games and the winning entries in our fantastic guerilla-advertising contest.


Top 7... games that should’ve had co-op– Because everything’s more fun with a buddy! Except solitaire. And pooping.

Killzone 2 reviewed– Will the controversy ever die?

Killzone 2 NOT reviewed– No. No, it won’t.

The Amazing Spider-Man vs The Kingpin– Our fascination with awful audio continues!

Rygar reviewed– Can a seven-year-old PS2 game hold up on the Wii? (SPOILER ALERT: No.)

"Islam is the light" "controversy"– Wow, is it 2002 again?

DS contest– We pick the winners!

Blogger bonds with bullies over games– D’awwww.

Pedophiles invade Home– As if you needed another reason to stay away...

Question 22: What game did you always hog?


Quote of the week:
“Spoiler Alert: In case you didn’t know the ending of Call of Duty 4 reveals that the whole game was a dream inside an autistic kid’s snow globe.”

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
