EXCLUSIVE: Inventor Marc Griffin discusses bringing BulletBall to videogames!


What game disappointed you the most?
We’ve all been reading previews for a while, right? Surely, there’s been a game that had you incredibly psyched for months on end… only to crap in the mouth of your expectations once you actually played it. Let us know in the forums and your answer could be read on the air.

  • SenatorPepper - May 4, 2010 8:42 p.m.

    Listen, Future PLC, you'd better start giving T-Dar the support it deserves. Why, you ask? I am a cat with laser eyes. You would not like me when I'm angry.

    Listening to the podcast made me kidna think im stupid for liking my PS3 so much. I mean, theyre talking about how non of the Exclusives really live up to the hype, save for UC 2, and there talking about how ass backwards PS3 is, that it makes me feel like I shouldnt like it so much, because it might be inferior to the 360. I know this isnt what they meant, but it just what I felt when listening to it.

    First post. Love the show and CANT wait for one hundred anymore. I will go cry on the same pillow that holds Brett's Zelda tears.

    hearing mr.Sterling talk about fanboys brings one thought to my mind: trying to reason with a fanboy is like trying to get your drug dealer to accept credit cards, it's fucking useless.
  • NEPAL - May 3, 2010 3:27 a.m.

    Why don't you guys ever have Joe McNeilly on the podcast?

    I liked Dan's new song. Also I can no longer look at Juri the same way.

    Please don't have Jim Sterling on again. I barely know who he is, but I've enjoyed his articles on GR. But he was utterly awful on TDar, and almost ruined the podcast for me. I'm a massive, massive TalkRadar fan, and have loved and enjoyed all 98 episodes prior to this so god damned much, but everything about that guy just put me on edge and got me quite irritated. He comes across as a complete moron, taking such a perverse glee in purposely trying to annoy people and throwing out ignorant insults left, right and centre. I've no idea (nor do I care) how justifiable that might be on how the internet may have treated him, like was suggested, but his incessant whining was in equal measures boring, infuriating and seemingly ignorant. The way he through baseless insults at the likes of PS3 fanboys and N4G/NeoGaf'ers just seemed to scream the same ignorance that he was trying to insult, forcing these prejudiced, dross personas onto every one of them. I feel like I should say here that I don't have a PS3, nor do I ever use N4G or NeoGaf, so I was not offended personally by what he was saying, but rather irritated by his ignorance. And why was he shouting the entire time? His voice seemed so loud compared to everyone elses, and completely over the top. Not only that, but despite being a born and bred Brit, I found his accent overwhelming grating. Not a good fit for the podcast at all. Like I said, I've enjoyed his features on GR, and I don't really know anything about him, but for the love of god pleeeeeease don't have him on the podcast again. As a massive, long-term fan of both the site and TDar I am begging you guys to just leave it at this one appearance.

  • solace357 - May 2, 2010 6:05 p.m.

    I'm so used to the usual crew that when you guys have someone else on, it can be overwhelming. Like... I love Ryan and OXM but he was allllmost obnoxious last time he was on. Should get Andy Bauman! Looking forward to episode 100 and I'll try to call in! Also.. I'd love to have a drink with you guys at E3.
  • shnazzyone - May 2, 2010 5:45 p.m.

    I'm going to secretly put a subscription to your podcast in all my buddies itunes. Noone should miss the impending shartplosion that will be Tdar 100.
  • lovinmyps3 - May 2, 2010 5:30 p.m.

    Hated the first segment. I don't hate Jim Sterling but I'm definitely not a fan. Got sick of hearing him rip on amazing games like Assassin's Creed 2 and Fallout 3. He has shitty taste in games!
  • frogfromchronotriggerisactuallyjesus - May 2, 2010 4:14 p.m.

    can't wait for tdar 100 next week!
  • SenorHurt - May 2, 2010 3:09 p.m.

    Just finishing listening. Thanks for another great show. This is my favorite podcast. Chris don't be afraid to bring back character/voices because they're great and hilarious!
