What book would you like to see made into a game? 
Books: Remember those things? Maybe not, but when it comes to adapting games from other mediums, books kinda stand out as a vast, untapped resource and Dante’s Inferno was just the beginning. ONLY RULE: No Harry Potter! That’s already been done once or twice.

In the office

Above: Eric and Elston emasculated themselves with swag from a game you probably don't care about

Above: Quite possibly the most unprofessional DSi XL size comparison video of all time!

Above: Tyler Wilde spent most of the Week of Hate making from kickass "drawrings,"  which you can see herehere, and here 

Above: And Chris took the time behind Brett's computer to change his desktop wallpaper to something more fitting

Above: Thanks to John and Kimberly for stopping by GRHQ!

In the community

    I missed the Palette Swap Ninja meetup, but I did encounter Mr. Amrich twice at PAX. \'-'/

    Man, with the new site layout, I had to search like mad for this. What ever happened to the TDAR link on the frontpage? Or could the Talk Radar Compendium at least be updated when the new show drops? I always catch the Friday dar on Monday (downloaded the old fashioned way), and with the gut of news posts and the site defaulting to blog-style, I had to go to the features page, then set it to list mode, then wade through a wall of text to find Friday's podcast.(while I'm complaining...what's with the game names atatched to every feature? In what small percentage of posts is that ever relevent? Does anyone search posts by game??) I can and will search to get my Tdar, but I can't imagine that this is helping to induct new listeners who are either: 1) just browsing the site and don't know taht there even is a podcast 2) heard from someone that there is a podcast, but happens to not come at the right time on Friday to actually see it 3) happened to see it one Friday, but doesn't know when new episodes are released, and maybe even missed the one link to the Compendium page for past they maybe even heard one Tdar, but come back a week and a half later and can't find a new 'cast and give up. Or am I blind and missing some easy way to get to the latest Talk Radar, and the archive, at any time? Love the show, always gets my week off to a good start.

    Unboxing the DSi XL might be the funniest thing I've seen this month. It must be good times in your offices...that is, when you're not working your butts off. Keep it up guys.

    I want to do something artistic for the 'dar (it's been a while) but I can't draw for shit, and my musical specialty is extremely heavy metal, and I don't know how appreciated that would be.. we'll see I guess. Fucking great cast though.
  • BigLandoz - March 28, 2010 12:43 a.m.

    Hooray! TDar!

    Eric was cool, you guys need to have him on more often. And is it just me or does Brett look a lot like Dave Grohl in that picture with him in an apron.
  • philipshaw - March 27, 2010 9:17 a.m.

    It was great for MIkel to make fun of me cause Chris took out all of the nerdy parts of the story and just lef the one good part. Either way, love the shout out, love the TDar, love the... uh... ladies. Sure why not?!
  • powerpc127 - March 27, 2010 6:33 a.m.

    While I don't care about the game that Eric and Brett are holding, I do care about America's Test Kitchen. It's one of the best cooking shows around. More importantly, they're the guys behind Cook's Illustrated, and I love that. Awesome show as always guys.
