    I don't think any of you understand how massive my bone is for this new 2 1/2 long Tdar. It's.. it could feed and/or kill an African village. Another week that I'm so very thankful that all of you took so much of your time to do this podcast. Truly on of the highlights of my week, every week. So yet again, thank you all so very, very much.

    Id have to say, cartoon Chris looks like the creepy guy that used to hang out behind my public school, drinking all day in his dodge caravan.
  • masenjo - November 14, 2009 9:37 p.m.

    I love the Fake Barry White!!!
  • Spybreak8 - November 14, 2009 8:39 p.m.

    Sooooo many good sections with this podcast I had to listen to it twice to remember what I wanted to talk about lol. First off, Talkradar and me are like a Reese's, just meant for each other. MW2 is a great game so I don't want to read about it, I want to play it first, (I'll be back). Instant Tit Kill, awesome. I love the you guys had a really long ask a games journalist, try to keep it at a minimum this time and then you guys all go long, lol love it. Also liked the ESRB part, bunch of pansies.:P Oh and with the infamous MW2 level, I shot the hell out of that airport bookstore because I've always wanted to do that subconsciously lol.

    Double post, but fuck it - I'm listening to the podcast as I comment. I've gotta say, the 'ask a games journalist' is my new favorite portion of the cast. While I do enjoy the top 7 and all the funny stuff in between, hearing the four of you borderline wax philosophic (I kid) is easily the most entertaining portion - and it hurts me to hear the discussion about skipping it entirely. Keep it up!!

    looks like chris finally banged a ghost

    Talkrdar clearly needs a contest where the all the grand prize winner needs to do is correctly submit his/her contact information.

    eh, I didn't play half life untill orange box came, and I loved soon after I play the first time. I beat the thing like 3 or 4 times.
  • JustTheBoBreaker - November 14, 2009 4:49 a.m.

    Cool I actually finished listening to the last podcast the other day, started it two or three days ago but stupid Windows autorestarted after getting updates, there goes my podcast networked to my 360. Man I was pissed. Dling now!
  • Tymiegie - November 14, 2009 1:42 a.m.

    I really, really like the "Ask a Journalist" segment. I find the third segment to be the least interesting and it spices it up quite a bit. I say you keep it and keep it nice and long.
