TalkRadar 67 – When Mickey Met Spidey



Top 7… shameless rip-offs – imitation is the sincerest form of stealing ideas.

Section 8 out this week – Mikel dubs it “pretty OK.”

Guitar Hero 5 actually good? – surprisingly strong offering this year, aside from dangling Kurt Cobain around like a corpse.

Disney buys Marvel for $4 billion – two worlds collide, prompting thousands of alarmist, worst-case reactions. We’ll hold your hand and talk you through it.

    That doesn't look a thing like bukake that happens to Stan Lee. Trust me, I know first hand!

    I had a 6hour road trip and tdar was there to hold my hand as i drove past creepy churches.

    I just got hooked on these and have been listening to all of them the whole week. Awesome! Then, when I finished, there's a new one. Fridays are my new favorite days in the week., I just came off as a real kiss ass.

    Mario Paint itself made the mouse worthwhile. I've put more hours into that game than any other, seriously.
  • AlpineGuy - September 5, 2009 8:06 p.m.

    Lo and behold: the 'dar is here!

    GrandMoffBubbles: Head over to the official fan art thread in Forums > TalkRadar Podcast.
  • ThatOneself - September 5, 2009 3:27 p.m.

    Woo! Not sure what was up with the loud music at the end though. Made it hard to hear you guys.
  • GrandMoffBubbles - September 5, 2009 8:56 a.m.

    Cheers to Frootaloom on the quality Elston John pic. I have some Photoshop idears too. How do I submit them? Sincerely, NoobMoffBubbles
  • Gahmah - September 5, 2009 6:02 a.m.

  • BlackElement17 - September 5, 2009 5:56 a.m.

  • mEgAzD - September 5, 2009 2:58 a.m.

    Nice episode, my only complaint though is that during the last segment, the music seemed to overpower your voices. It must be the earphones I was using but please check on it if you can.

    The moment I've been waiting for all weekend Talkradar rocks

    Epic Sauce!
  • SuperJP64 - September 4, 2009 11:28 p.m.

    I wasn't in new users. :(
  • Frootaloom - September 4, 2009 9:57 p.m.

    @Bobbety I'm pretty sure you're right on that one, it's such an obvious pun. But I don't remember hearing or seeing an Elston John (had to fill my personal artly expectations for the week). But hats off to who ever first-ed it.
  • MechGyver - September 4, 2009 9:48 p.m.

    I know i should be saying this, but, i was at checking the all time greatest game hero when i saw The Nameless One losing to fucking Ryu from Ninja Gaiden and it just made me hate all you fucking noobs even more. PS:PLEASE DIE.
