The Topics

Top 7... things we hate about sports games
To be honest, it's mostly that they're sports games, but we humor the topic for the sake of saying words about things (that's what a podcast is).

REVIEW: Get ready for high fantasy at its finest

Left 4 Dead 2 - Easter eggs and details
If you were too busy actually enjoying the demo, here are the little touches obscured by the undead horde

Doc Louis's Punch-Out!! 
VIDEO: See the Punch-Out!! game most of you will never get to play

The first 90 minutes of Zelda: Spirit Tracks 
We walk you through the opening act of Nintendo's latest legend

Question of the Week
What was the first CD you ever owned? Why are we asking this? Well, listen to the podcast to find out. And we know when you just skip to the third segment, we can hear you listening.

Contests ending this week

WWE SmackDown vs RAW 2010 
The winners have been announced in the third segment of this week's podcast. If you won, be sure to contact the GamesRadarPrizePig via private message with your name, address, and a reminder of what you won so we don't accidentally send you a copy of Glenn Beck's latest book.

Above: Look at all those games! We're rolling in manmeat...but not for long, because you (by which we mean, some people who might not be you) just won!

In the office

Above: Tyler discovers the consequences of wandering the streets drunk and belligerent on a Monday night

Above: What the hell happened to Brett's car?

Above: Chris Antista, Nintendope as shit, y'all

Above: Worth the time 

In the community

Above: Bobbety's rendition of Lizzie Cuevas' worst Halloween costume, and some white dude's hands

    That's one main reason I come back to read your guy's site again and again because you don't SPOIL anything. Gawd, I'm sick of reading a paragraph or two of my OXM and then putting it down cursing why the fuck did you just tell me that!? Great cast guys, hilarity ensues. I don't normally go for the sports games either but ever since Be a Pro I've decided to buy a few of them and they've been great experiences.

    Every week, Talkradar reminds me why it's hands down the best podcast ever made. The only podcast I'd pay for (I know you wouldn't do that, but I'd cough up $ every week for that much premium content.) After seeing the Talkradar documentary, I feel even more thankful and greatful to everyone who works on it, especially to the editors (I know it's usually Chris or Brett.) You put so much effort into it, and it really shows. The long length put a smile on my face, the hilarious anecdotes, all of it. I'm just so f*cking glad Talkradar continues to exist. Thank you. --The Did

    Last sports game I played was Slugfest 2003 for the gamecube. Last football game I played was Madden 98. Pissed me off so bad, I havn't played one since! Tecmo Superbowl for NES/SNES were my favorite football games of all time! Tecmo Superbowl III sucked
