Have you, or anyone you’ve known, ever had an alien encounter?
Close encounters of ANY kind! Nothing is too farfetched, but the more authentic the better!

Speaking of OC Remix, head over there to download this week’s ending song, “Icon” by Binster, a fantastic tribute to Ico’s “Castle in the Mist”

In the office

Oddly enough, all the interesting GR went down outside of the offices:

Above: Charlie Barratt discovered Rapture while adventuring in the Magic Kingdom

Above: While in Milwaukee, Chris sets up for an inverted takedown

Above: Tyler Wilde… exists! Sometimes, that’s enough

In the community

Above: DrDevious brings one of our favorite recent bits, “Solitaire Salesman,” to glorious YouTube life

Above: And schnazzyone decided to go the animated route with his video. Can’t tell you how much we love these, guys – MOAR PLEEZ!

Above: Look for michaelmcc827 tooling around the Forza 3 servers in a car made of TalkRadar!

Above: And here’s another featuring a very special simian

Above: jax wrote our name in the snow in a manner most piss-free!

Above: And as further tribute to Brett Elston, he also engaged in a little “Cool Bowling”

Above: Lastly, grabboids somehow made Chris’s tasteless joke from last week even more reprehensible. Kudos!

    Guys, why the hate on accent from a French game. Have you never thought about how f***ed up the accents are everytime an amrican pretends to play a french guy? By the way, if you want good annoying clichés, voices and bad accents, play the saboteur... which no one has been complaining about. People don't give two craps about doing correct accent when not in English, probably because no one complaining in the case of heavy rain can actually speak one correctly.

    Hmmm, last 2 episodes of talkradar haven't been the strongest. Not really a fan of listening to people talk about aliens. But Chris, please keep using zany slide whistle sound effects!

    Ahhh! Wonderful seeing OCReMix folks like Dave and Larry on podcasts like this. This is Level 99, who's also on OCReMix. Just letting you all know that OCReMix does have a resident official unofficial podcast called OverClocked After Dark. Exhibiting the less-shown side of OCReMix, it's definitely a rated-R podcast. Check it out, cause we play tons of OCReMixes and talk with mixers and video game musicians all the time about random stuff. or you can subscribe on iTunes. *END SEMISHAMELESS PLUG, I LOVE YOU GAMESRADAR!*

    most entertaining t-dar ever. I loved all the alien and ghost stuff, I'm way into that stuff.
  • bonerachieved - February 22, 2010 10:49 p.m.

    Listening Right No
  • Drawed - February 22, 2010 10:47 p.m.

    We're glad. Now will you tell us who won the Halo Legends contest? :P
  • GamesRadarChrisAntista - February 22, 2010 7:19 p.m.

    You people have warmed the heart of at least one surly and disillusioned editor. Mega Props all around!
  • TURbo - February 22, 2010 1:19 p.m.

    Another post for support
  • TheMonarch - February 22, 2010 8:31 a.m.

    Another great podcast, it effectively help me procrastinate on some work. Much rather listen to Talk Radar then do stuff. Though after that story, you guys might want to be careful, the MIB now know that you know what they don't want you to know. Also what's the deal with podcasts? Last time I checked the cast isn't in pods! #TerribleSeinfeldJoke
  • super0sonic - February 22, 2010 6:48 a.m.

    Ahh Talk Radar HD Turbo Supreme Ultra Hyper Master Championship Mega Edition Episode 89!!! Or Tdar.T.S.U.H.M.C.M.E.E 89 for short!

    Oh my god, did I make it in time? I had to rush over and make a comment so these dear boys could have some air conditioning. I was so disappointed that Chris was in my town and he never let me know so we could meet for lunch or something:-( Great show, again guys. Thanks. Gotta go and read the inside jokes article. bye.
  • BearKiller - February 22, 2010 3:32 a.m.

    I absolutely loved the discussion this week. All the talk about aliens was awesome, the question of the week built around it is awesome, and the interview was awesome. One of my favorite podcasts so far. Keep it up guys!
  • mEgAzD - February 22, 2010 2:35 a.m.

    Very nice OC Remix interview. I now go regularly if I need a music fix. Overall good podcast. TALKRADAR IS A GO!
  • Spybreak8 - February 22, 2010 2:14 a.m.

    Omg this week's podcast looks awesome but sadly I'm behind downloading three podcasts back atm.
  • soccerclownking - February 21, 2010 6:02 p.m.
