TalkRadar Clip 'o the Week: Jurassic Park

Seriously, we know you’re busy people! We also know a lot of you reading GamesRadar haven’t ever listened to our filthy, stupid podcast: TalkRadar. We understand your trepidation. They're too long, podcasts are boring, etc… Well, here’s a bite-sized clip we humbly ask that you try super-quick like! It may not be what you were expecting

Things you should know about TalkRadar:
1. We kick off every with a “Top 7” game discussion
2. We play game music and sound effects LIVE
3. We’ve collectively seen Jurassic Park a billion times

Those are just three of the things that make TDar infinitely more bearable than all those other droning gaming podcasts that have undoubtedly bored a majority of you away from the entire medium. Furthermore, those three special characteristics culminated in a feat of nostalgic beauty back in TalkRadar 110, right when we hit the Isla Nublar entry in curse filled conversation about the Top 7 Coolest Video Game Islands.

Not only do we spit out Jurassic Park references at a terrifyingly high rate of about 3.7 per minute, Brett Elston actually had a copy of the JP game for the Sega CD in the office. What you may not know about Sega’s little console that couldn’t is that you can listen to the music and sound effects of most games simply by sticking the disc into a standard CD player. So we did! Sure enough, we unearthed low-fi Raptor roars, MIDI muzak, blood curdling shrieks, bones crunching within the jaws of a T-Rex, and numerous other instances of mid-90’s foley artists doing their damnedest to convey humans beings getting viscously devoured.

Above: Gorgeous, isn't it?

Better still, YouTube user flabbslapper took the audio and synced it to relating footage from one of the greatest films ever made, thus adding a fantastic visual element making for a 100% complete assault on the senses!

    One of my favorite movies of all time. The scene where the T-Rex steps out of his enclosure and you get to see his entire body for the first time is the most memorable scene of any movie from my childhood. It still gives me the chills every time.

    Loved this segement, Brett is so right about that song

    The roar of the T-Rex... makes me cum of fear and awesomeness every, single time.

    Oh man, if that Jurassic Park CD segment was a 10 on the comedy meter, this video just cranked it up to 11. I haven't gotten the chance to share this yet, but I too have owned the Jurassic Park CD game on my Sega CD system. It was dead end game for me since I could never get past the very first challenge in the game. I remember it quite vividly because I was so flabbergasted by how to solve the situation. A triceratops is pummeling your vehicle and, while it does this, a package falls out of the car. When you touch the package, the triceratops turns it's attention to you and a skewering sound celebrates your demise. I didn't have a long enough attention span to figure it out. So it turns out that the rest of the game is a mystery to me. Still, it brings back warm memories when you guys brought it up. Thanks guys.

    TalkRadar episode 110 was awesome, It's like the executive bathroom island from family guy!

    @rebornkusabi actually the first movie was based off of the first book, but those books are LONG AS FUCK and they couldn't fit everything in, forcing them to cut out some rather important bits. they did however but some bits of the first book they had to cut into the second movie.
  • RebornKusabi - August 5, 2010 9:38 p.m.

    I love the first two Jurassic Park movies, and after reading the novels they were both based on, it makes me curious to see if this franchise will ever be revisited again in movie form. There's no way to top the first Jurassic Park movie so maybe they should maybe focus more on adapting the book this time. I digress though... loved this part of the podcast this one was taken from.

    "It's like John Williams is trapped in my console." Could not have said it better myself.
  • AngryScotsman - August 5, 2010 9:29 p.m.

    I love the MIDI Jurassic Park music. It's like the John Williams is trapped in my console.
