TalkRadar 59 – The Pattercast

The Top 7... sexy horses every stud should ride - Shane Patterson's replacement dishes on the fillies that are truly hot to trot.

Above: Face it... this is the Future of Gaming

Brett's Nintendo's most-failingest peripherals article gave him the perfect excuse to whip out his old toys.

While we're on the subject, peep the recent picture taken with the DSi's predecessor, The Game Boy Camera!

TalkRadar UK f***ing electrocutes themselves all in the name of Professional Games Journalology!

We sit back and laugh our asses off as Microsoft, once a fearless innovator, falls hilariously out of touch.

If you don't have a PS3 it's hard to argue with this here bundle, which will allegedly go on sale at Best Buy next week for $400!

Question of the Week #42: What is your all time favorite console?

For those who aren't already grieving over in the forum thread, we have to say a tearful goodbye to Shane Patterson this week. Shane will address his departure, plus we're devoting a large portion of the show to celebrating the man's legacy with GamesRadar... and then even more time roasting him in a manner most cruel! Let's take a glance back to a time when Shane still worked here.

A Tribute to Shane Patterson

Above: It's true! Shane kinda, sorta, not really danced with Jade Raymond on a single occasion!

Above: Shane was an integral part of Paul Ryan’s autobiographical account on the plight of the Girl Gamer 

Above: Once the dust settled from The Great Killzone 2 War, Shane made his peace with the Helghast

Above: KREATIVEassassin made a playable Shane card recognizing his agility

Above: While at GR Shane got to meet many of his favorite wrestlers, most notably seen here showing off his underwear with Ted “The Million Dollar Man” DiBiase during a demo of Legends of Wrestlemania 

Above: No, Shane is not leaving to pursue a career in pro wrestling, as was teased way back on our April Fools Day podcast 

Above: In yet another wrasslin’ fantasy scenario, GR reader twishart made this to win a WWE game

Above: Being a delicate swan has its advantages

Above: Shane’s body contains enough rhythm and grace to kill a normal man, thus he was the obvious candidate to send into battle with the Cheerleaders who invaded out offices.

Above: It's as if Wii Music was made specifically for Shane

Above: His work ethic was truly God-like

Here are some of our favorite videos directed by Mr. Shane Patterson. Some of them took as long as an entire lunch break to film!

Above: The Art of Teabagging! And it is an art, people

Above: We were a little too excited over Rock Band 2's wireless instruments and Shane Patterson was there to catch it on film!

Above: Our Halo 3 commercial parody will surely stand the test of time

Above: This BioShock teaser makes up for its crudity by featuring OXM's Dan Amrich in a f***ing Ghostbusters suit!

Above: Shane brought Method Acting to the GR offices with the instructional stealth short, Close Quarters Combat and You!

Above: Destroying Controls in Slow Motion is indescribable!

Above: ELPork pays tribute

Above: As does manaconda

Above: And KillDrone's picture harkens back to one of the finest closers in TalkRadar history 

But it's not all about mourning this week...

Above: This absolutely made our week

Above: Now let us never speak of this again
