TalkRadar UK 68


Listen now...

There are some dark and twisted moments to come in this week's TalkRadar UK - some of which involve games and others, hmmmmm, not so much. But if you're after a podcast with puss-filled phallus talk and off-the-wall opinion on the latest games industry on-goings then, by George, you've come to the right place.

Heading up the show are sexy hounds that are Cundy, Dave M and Nathan as they cover a vast number of subjects including all of this and more...

- NEWS! - What do the men think of the Panorama documentary on gaming addiction? Plus their take on market analyst Michael Pachter's damning verdict on PSP2 and speculation of what the 13 exclusive reveals will be at the VGA Awards this weekend.

- APPRECIATION SECTION! - It's Nathan's turn this week and he's plumped for... < drum roll heavy synth sound>... Manhunt. Find out why Rockstar's uber-violent classic struck a such a chord with him on the show. We would show a YouTube clip of all the executions but, well, we don't want to poison your innocent minds.

- QUESTION OF THE WEEK! - In between Meiks boasting about how he's completed EVERY GAME EVER MORE THAN ONCE we read your answers out loud to the question... What game have you replayed - from start to finish - the most and why?

- WHAT WE'VE BEEN PLAYING! - Enslaved splits opinions on the team and Donkey Kong Country transports one team member back to their childhood. Not literally, mind.

- GAMESRADAR HOTLINE! - Tune in for one of the most bizarre calls we've had to the hotline and listen as we answers questions from our army of fans.

    i can't believe my first ever facebook comment has been read out on talkradar! even if i DID get called thick for not getting the ending from mgs2 after playing it 50 times... then again, who has?
  • tacehtselrahc - December 10, 2010 7:26 p.m.

    I agree with the team's opinion on the Panorama documentary, I think the problem was more with the people playing the games not with the games themselves.
  • killorabbit - December 10, 2010 3:40 p.m.

    Mirrors Edge 5 times!? I'd rather be mugged off. That game has to be one of the very worst games of the current generation.
  • garnsr - December 9, 2010 9:28 p.m.

    Actually, it looks like Cundy is Cow_102.
  • Jasman - December 9, 2010 8:54 p.m.

    Great episode once again guys. Although, my text message wasn't read out :(
  • McCagey - December 9, 2010 4:48 p.m.

    Want minigame. Need to see Cundy suffer!!!
  • Matt Cundy - December 9, 2010 2:06 p.m.

    For various reasons we've had to give the minigame a miss this week. It will be back, though.
  • nedubis - December 9, 2010 1:43 p.m.

    best podcast out there - keep up the good work. Thanks for the heads up on the Prince of Persia HD collection last week - got it the other day and am loving it.

    Excellent podcast as ever! Laughing like a mental on the tube this morning :-) You mentioned the Panorama programme and i couldn't resist but post this beautiful quote from the points of view message board ( about the show. Enjoy :-) "another example is 'bioshock' a game where you play the role of a 'big daddy', and you go around capturing little girls. you can either heal the little girls and set them free, or 'consume' them, which makes your character stronger. what the hell is THAT teaching your kids? if anyone here has ever studied satanism, they will know that a common satanic belief is that child sacrifice/child RAPE, makes you more 'godly'. i couldnt believe that game ever managed to be released, let alone become a best seller. if there is a giant leap in the amount of paedophiles in 10-15 years time, you know why...." Clearly, this man is a genius.
  • philipshaw - December 9, 2010 12:48 p.m.

    Great podcast guys but where is the minigame?
  • TJP75 - December 9, 2010 10:45 a.m.

    Excellent from start to finish. I very nearly choked as I was laughing so hard when Matt Cundy casually mentioned dry humping his partner while playing with Kinect. The best bit was Nathan and Dave M getting more uncomfortable with every word Matt tries to add to the story. Easily Matt's best comedic effort yet. I'd rank GamesRadar UK as one of the best shows I listen to. Keep up the great work. Cheers.

    Will you lads post your PSN and Xbox tags somewhere? I can't remember them, and don't want to try to skim the last two shows to find them. I don't play online a lot, but it's cool to see what you celebrities are playing, and how many trophies you have.
  • garnsr - December 8, 2010 9:21 p.m.

    I haven't listened yet, but I assume you meant pus-filled phallus, instead of puss-filled. I'll have to listen to find out, I guess.
  • TrueGoddessReincarnation - December 8, 2010 8:41 p.m.

  • Clovin64 - December 8, 2010 7:42 p.m.
