TalkRadar UK 2010 Christmas Special




Welcome one and all and very merry Christmas to you. You're probably sick of the sight of turkey by now, not to mention your relatives and the oh-so predictable Christmas TV schedule, right? Well, why not escape the sadness by tucking into a tasty special episode of TalkRadar UK - the only games podcast with an actual reference to Five Children And It (right).

This Christmas themed edition contains a round up of the highs and lows of gaming in 2010. Fuelled by alcohol, the finest mincepies that £2.99 can buy and some pathetic Christmas crackers, the whole GamesRadar UK team are crammed into the studio to discuss their best and worst of the last twelve months.

So what are you waiting for? Come on inside and treat yourself to gaming chatter, tales of sexual innuendo and essentially five grown men becoming increasingly more drunk before your very ears. 


Bonus content

Want to see what it's like in the TalkRadar UK studio? How about when it's Christmas and we're all drinking the old alcomahols? Well, now you can. Not only do we have photos which show how our favourite scotsman likes to waste good mince pies...

Above: Midway through the podcast. But what's Meiks done with his mince pie? That. He only likes the pastry

Above: From left: UK Editor Matt Cundy, Content Editors Justin Towell and Dave Houghton, Associate Editor Nathan Irvine (who was taking this picture) and Content Editor Dave Meikleham can also see us in the studio in video too. In four-way split screen! It's the gift that keeps on giving.


Plus... Fanart!

It's the TRUK team as the presenters of Top Gear. Justin's not sure why he's been portrayed as 'Captain Slow' but Hooters is happy with his Hammond. Which sounds like an owl who plays the organ, but isn't.

Above: That's Nathan as The Stig. Thanks to cj12297 for this one


Which just leaves us to say...

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year! From all of us at, here's to an awesome 2011!

    This was great for my long walk into town for the Christmas sales, as I was laughing away and not caring about the treacherous ice. So thanks for making the Boxing Day sales more bearable. Merry Christmas guys!

    Great show as always gents. Hope you all enjoyed an excellent Christmas! Nice to hear some love for Singularity, having already read Dave H's article on said game which was mentioned in a tweet from Raven Software. Singularity is superb from start to finish with the added bonus of three excellent endings. Look forward to hearing more TRUK in the new year.
