TalkRadar 86 – Weezer vs Capcom


Your Hosts


The Topics

Top 7... Longest game endings
Hope you like lots of stuttering JRPG dialog, cuz we’ve got 45 minutes worth.

Rivers Cuomo interview
Holy Pinkerton! T-Dar talks to Weezer’s lead singer about games, inaccurate Wikipedia entries and why there’s a dog leaping through the air on the cover of Raditude

Mass Effect 2 reviewed 
It’s not just good. It’s flat-out amazing. Brett gushes while everyone else nods in reluctant agreement.

No More Heroes 2 reviewed
Cheerleaders, giant robots and gallons of blood are as normal as can be in this must-play Wii exclusive

Question of the Week
What two series would you love to see cross over, like say Gears of War in Lost Planet or Tatsunoko vs Capcom? The best posts get read next week, plus the very best will win a copy of TvC!

New contests this week

WIN: Free copy of Tatsunoko vs Capcom!

The best reply to our Question of the Week thread will win a FREE copy of Capcom’s batshit-insane fighter. We love it, you should too. Get to the damn thread already – we’ve got second and third prizes too, courtesy of special guest Seth Killian!

In the office

Above: Speaking of Seth, here he is holding Mikel’s exclusive cardboard edition of the iPad. Made from real pizza boxes! 

Above: Two comic nerds in the same office? It’s bound to happen. Luckily, Hank and Brett were able to decide which was Hal Jordon and Kyle Rainer without excessive bloodshed

Above: The staff gathered around for a bout of Tatsunoko vs Capcom. Srsly, don’t hate – just play the damn thing

In the community

Above: Will we get in trouble for posting reader Nighthawk’s custom Scattermaran? Let’s find out 

Above: Our verbal slip became Graboids’s muse – Konami, can you guys get on this ASAP?

Above: We also apparently said something about the monster-raping Pyramid Head getting his own cereal, which Aforextreme promptly whipped into reality

Head to the forums and join the T-Dar community or die cold and alone.

    XD like the podcast but NMH 2 review was just talking about 2 bosses
  • JHawk - February 2, 2010 6:07 p.m.

    I love Weezer...I don't think I would like Rivers Cuomo. Its all well and good that were able to court such a high profile interview but DAMN was that guy boring. If it takes locking up someone like him in a room for hours a day, just tinkering with his music, to produce albums like they do then I am willing to make that sacrifice. He could not have sounded less interested in talking to you guys though, especially about video games. It sounded to me like he was trying very hard not to let his true, condescending views of video games sneak through a hard PR shell.

    Cool interview, i would like to see more of that. I'm definately going to check out some of weezer's music.
  • super0sonic - January 31, 2010 9:15 a.m.

    I love when Seth is on the cast!! Fighting games make me happy.
  • GrandMoffBubbles - January 30, 2010 6:40 p.m.

    P.S. Seth I will buy your new game based strictly upon the fact that it is weird and I dig that kinda shite.
  • GrandMoffBubbles - January 30, 2010 6:35 p.m.

    I, Grand Moff Bubbles, do by here declare that "Gary War" is the House band of the Citadel. Listen at your own peril and enter a new world of awesomeness. That is all....
  • humpiedumpie - January 30, 2010 7:53 a.m.

    TDAR in the Netherlands is also A GOOOOO! YEAH!
  • OmNomRomRearghNergh - January 30, 2010 6:33 a.m.

    I love you, TDar.
  • Spybreak8 - January 30, 2010 5:05 a.m.

    Awesome, however I don't think I can listen to this and play Mass Effect 2 at the same time. yeah that would dilute the experience, Saturday then!
  • Samael - January 30, 2010 4:32 a.m.

    Oh man...just beat Mass Effect 2. A mother-frakking thrill ride to the end. Can't wait to hear Brett gush! I'll be gushing here with him!
  • JustTheBoBreaker - January 30, 2010 4:30 a.m.

    I finally got my friend interested in TDar after about a year. He has now listened to about 20 podcasts this week but he refuses to listen to them while the news is still relevant.
