TalkRadar UK 70


Listen now...

We're kicking off 2011 with a change and this new logo is the first of many tweaks to come to your favourite gaming podcast over the course of the year. Regular listeners needn't fret, mind, because there'll still be the <cough> 'accurate' journalism that you've come to expect from the men of GamesRadar UK. Fact.

Episode 70 sees us dish out the first audiological treat of the year as Justin, Cundy and Nathan talk you through what games they've been playing over the Christmas period as well as casting an eye over 2011's BIG games. But what else can you expect from TalkRadar UK today? All this and more...

*NEWS! - The team look at the Christmas #1 at the top of the 'selling' charts whilst becoming mildly aroused at the exciting glut of games due out in 2011. Also, we replace the word 'respectable' for 'Kinectimals' produces comedy mega-LOLZ...  for about thirty seconds:

*APPRECIATION SECTION! - Cundy plumps for Medal of Honor to pour his heart out over. He definitely did pick this game just before we walked over to the studio. Absolutely not.

*QUESTION OF THE WEEK! - Well, not really because we, erm, <looks around office> 'Meiks' forgot to do it. Our neglect was in no way connected to us hastily slapping an agenda together. No, sir.  

*GAMESRADAR HOTLINE - Y'all managed to send us some lovely texts over the festive period so it would be rude of us not to read them out, right? Of course it would.

    Only just got around to listening to this (had a load to catch up on since Christmas). Excellent as always chaps. Just wanted to comment with regards to the online thing. I have the exact same problems with it. Its just such a hostile & horrible playing environment. But luckily I have a good group of friends ive met through forums that I play online with often - we just go into Party Chat & I dont have to deal with any of the wankers. Its all good. Thats the only way I play online games these days. If for some reason I do play a public game, everyone just gets muted & I get to quietly kill what I imagine to be chavs all around the world. Bliss. Im definitely a single player gamer primarily though & like Cundy, I used to be worried about the direction gaming was going in with the emphasis being online MP. However Motion Controlled gaming has pushed this to the back of my mind now. Motion controls are far more likely to ruin gaming IMO. Anyway, im blabbering now. Keep up the good work fellas. Love you - in a totally hetorosexual way of course. No breaking of coccyx included in my love x

    @Cundy I just got them now, it is now official :D. However I got a reply from you and Mr Irvine, but not Justin "GLARE", looks like this cat has gone a bit crazy :P, hahahahaha. As long as he got the message I'm happy. And Happy New Year as well! :D

    This sounds like another great podcast but where is the minigame?
  • Matt Cundy - January 6, 2011 11:50 a.m.

    @OhMyJosh I think... yes .... and I think I replied. But maybe I didn't. My memory is currently operating at full capacity and unless it happened in the last 20 seconds, chances are it won't be remembered. Christmas is now just a blur of cheese and ibuprofen.
  • OhMyJosh - January 6, 2011 11:10 a.m.

    Did you guys get my merry christmas messages in your PS3 inbox?
  • joemama - January 5, 2011 9:53 p.m.

    I always put my statas to apear ofline, im just not a fan of online play. When I due play online I rarely use a headset.
  • bluscorp - January 5, 2011 9:10 p.m.

    I also loved the fan art, good work dude. As for online gaming, i have to be really bored, or have no single player games to complete to play multiplayer online. Yet i love multiplayer offline.
  • LordsOfTechno - January 5, 2011 8:15 p.m.

    Oh crap I almost forgot about this; I didn't even realise it was Wednesday! Anyway, downloading now.
  • MrWrighty987 - January 5, 2011 7:56 p.m.

    Now i don't have to listen to the wife talking about the soups, sexy time.
  • killorabbit - January 5, 2011 7:55 p.m.

    YAY. Just started my second of three 2500 word essays this week, having finished the last just this morning. Now I have something besides caffeine to keep me going. Oh, and the Christmas episode was great.
  • 510BrotherPanda - January 5, 2011 6:55 p.m.

    Surprisingly, I enjoyed TRUK's Christmas Special a little more than TR US's this year. Keep up the good work, friends! Happy New Year!
  • Clovin64 - January 5, 2011 6:06 p.m.

    First TRUK of the Year! Hell yes!
  • NeonSalmon - January 5, 2011 5:47 p.m.
