TalkRadar UK #18: End of year Nintendo special

In the lukewarm seats

Bones of contention

- The DS XL being referred to as the 'orthopaedic shoe of handhelds'
- The highs and lows of 2009 for Nintendo
- Sonic fan-boy attacking Mario-loving Matt Castle at every opportunity
- An interesting games marketing technique involving cats
- What uses the Wii Vitality Sensor might be good for
- Another obscure reference to an olden days children's TV show

Do you have an opinion about the podcast? Then let us know in our dedicated TalkRadar UK forum thread.

Headphone girls

Okay, so we're down to two image library credits. Unless 'the man' refills the bank for us we're looking at one more girl - and she'll be dressed as a festive elf or something. Don't forget the ladies in headphones forum thread is still bursting with women with cans.

    @breener96: You're very welcome! The typing sounds the same to me, British or Irish. No offense intended, certainly.

    Am I the only American who listens? It sounds like the other guys who post comments here are Brits. This podcast seems more serious, but often less relative to what's going on right now in games, than the American show, but it's a nice counterpoint. And the variety of accents makes it interesting, too.

    Ah Breener, it always seems like we're the only ones interested in TdarUK lol. Of course I jest. Keep up the good work guys!

    Fear not, your picture hasn't been binned. We thought we'd just let these specials run as they are because we don't do community bits in them. After Christmas we'll resume normal service.

    Also, why don't ye post any fan stuff on the page? I posted a picture a while ago and was sad to see a basically blank landing page : (
  • breener96 - December 16, 2009 5:23 p.m.

    Yes! Sony FTW! I can't wait to download! Why am I usually the first to post in these articles? (I probably won't be this time, now :P) Meh, doesn't matter!
