TalkRadar Clip o’ the week: Skatin’ yo!

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

This week we’re mocking the ‘tude on display in the recent Skate 3 co-op trailer. Nothing against the actual game, but the barely-enthused youthful shills “dope-speakin’” over the trailer with Xbox Live headsets, as if it were the coolest thing a break-dancing sophomore could do on a Friday night, struck us as ridiculously goofy. And we thought that, maybe, talkin’ urban could work for marketing other online games:

Oh well, we thought it was funny. Feel free to decide for yourself by listening to the rest of TalkRadar 99, featuring Destructoid's Jim Sterling and the man behind BulletBall! Oh, and stay tuned for the landmark TalkRadar 100. Brutha… it’s gonna be epic sick, yo!

    I download this heat at work and at home and on any spare computers i can get on, this is the first show i listen to once i get it, i will try and leave a message for your 100 but your bosses need to realize that this show is the bomb, this shiz, the hot stuff that kids talk about on the street, and dont try and change anything. I hope you guys realize how awesome the show is and how much better you guys make me feel on my rides in to work and rides home, very good stress reliever. CHRIS ANTISTA SMELLS LIKE....aww you smell great bro.

    I listen to Talkradar every week but I think this clip of the week is a good idea. I got a mate to listen to this clip and is going to listen to the podcast from now on

    I agree with everyone else that this is a great idea to get more people to listen to talkradar, but it'd be even better if you guys included sort of a "best of" clip along with the clip from the current tdar. I think people hearing Alf Pacino, the Norwegian King of Names, Dog-ball-shitting, etc. could convince them even further to listen to the full thing. Though I have to ask, who visits the site but doesn't listen to the podcast? Listening to tdar was what convinced me to start visiting the site regularly in the first place.

    People need to listen to the podcast. It's a great podcast.
  • Cyberninja - May 6, 2010 12:27 a.m.

    can you put the full tr back on youtube since i have no other way of listening to it?
  • EnragedTortoise1 - May 6, 2010 12:09 a.m.

    I'm already a regular listener (alleluia to that), but I think these are apretty good addition to your weekly features. THey remind me of the times I needed new pants.
  • Spybreak8 - May 5, 2010 11:51 p.m.

    Yeah that was funny, I was holding my sides on that one last week.
  • chainsawninja600 - May 5, 2010 11:29 p.m.

    Yay TDAR advertising!
  • Strangleme - May 5, 2010 11:13 p.m.

    You know, I think this is an awesome idea to get people interested in listening to the podcast. But I seriously can't imagine anyone who bothers to read the content on this site, not bothering to listen to the podcast!!! If anyone who comes here doesn't listen to Talkradar, YOU FUCKIN" SUCK!!! It's an amazingly entertaining podcast from start to finish. All 2 1/2 hours of them. One of the best things about Fridays!!! (I realize I sound like a lame person with no life but the podcast rocks, so eat me).

    Bulletball, bulletball, that's a bulletball...

    Yo daig this wux fly fo sho captcha:of fassilize
  • InstantTitKill - May 5, 2010 10:54 p.m.

    Seriously guys, Talkradar is too short. You should really start putting out two versions, one edited and one slightly or totally unedited version.
  • BUFFshagwell - May 5, 2010 10:42 p.m.

    YO homes smell you lata
  • SillyPigeon - May 5, 2010 10:41 p.m.

    This is an awesome idea to get people in to your wonderful podcast. I totally cracked up when i heard the fresh prince music kick in.
  • Modroneman - May 5, 2010 9:35 p.m.

    The Talk Radar podcast too long? How dare anyone say such nonsense! The podcast is TOO SHORT! I love you guys, and look forward to every podcast. Clips like this are the reason I look forward to every podcast! As subtly racist as this may have been, it was still FUNNY AS SHIT!
  • Unoriginal - May 5, 2010 8:55 p.m.

    Great Idea! I'll download twice if youre desperate for hits.
  • Hypermonkey262 - May 5, 2010 8:41 p.m.

    I think you're forgetting the fact that we already KNOW how awesome it is. Talkradar is like dying: You cant know how awesome it is if you never try it.
  • DontPanic - May 5, 2010 8:17 p.m.

    I don't understand the "too hard" thing either. I like my Tdar like I like my umm... USB cables! Long.
  • drewbian - May 5, 2010 8:16 p.m.

    hahahahahah fuckin sweet man that was brilliant
  • loonyman978 - May 5, 2010 8:06 p.m.
