TalkRadar UK Episode 76


Listen now...

Uh oh, it's time. One member of TalkRadar UK - and to a larger extent GamesRadar - is about to be ended, no more, fired into the sun in a rocket. But who will it be? The suspense is killing us and we already know who it is. You can find out by listening to this week's podcast, which features all five members of the pod squad - Justin, Dave H, Meiks, Cundy and Nathan.

Aside from the nasty business of catapulting someone out of GR Towers forever, we've got a news special where we discuss Activision's recent shocking activities and what we think the company should do to save it's soul. There's the Appreciation Section brought to you by Justin and there's the usual mix of jokes, larks and laser accurate gaming insight, but think of the last bit as an added bonus, because it may not be 100% true. There's also a strange game-related story involving this place too...

Above: The Mae-Mar Hotel, or should that be the Bates Motel?

Anyways, it's time to find out who's jettisoned from the GamesRadar bosom for all eternity. Enjoy!

    Best of luck Meiks. Anytime I think of Dino Crisis, Jurassic Park or the word "esentially" I'll think of you!

    Excellent podcast gents, more of the group discussions in future podcasts please. This latest show reminded me a lot of the original UK podcast. Matt Cundy was hilarous throughout and now I know who is sniggers at unintentional innuendos - it's Justin! Sad to hear the final show for one of the crew, although I loved the way his leaving was dealt with.
  • JD_Method - February 17, 2011 3:25 p.m.

  • LeoZeo - February 17, 2011 11:44 a.m.

  • GR_JustinTowell - February 17, 2011 10:14 a.m.

    @LeoZeo - you're kidding, right? You're better spoken than 100% of the Gamesradar UK team ;) We just never heard LeoZeo here, and now we know what it says, we hear it perfectly. Sorry about that - and thanks for your message matey :P
  • LeoZeo - February 17, 2011 9:55 a.m.

    The caller - the name's LeoZeo. Sorry, not exactly a good speaker.... :/
  • Games_Radar_DaveMeikleham - February 17, 2011 9:26 a.m.

    D'awwww, shucks. Thanks for all the guy words, y'all. In terms of what I'm doing next, well, I'll most likely be herding Highland cows. It's a little known fact, but it's a really booming industry.
  • Rojoco - February 17, 2011 1:49 a.m.

    Bye Meiks. There I spoiled it. :P
  • garnsr - February 17, 2011 12:58 a.m.

    Gamesradar will be much less silly for the loss.
  • KaiokenKid - February 17, 2011 12:08 a.m.

    Someone PM me the name of who left please. Ending confused me because they said like two names.
  • BawBagMcRae - February 16, 2011 9:37 p.m.

    Good podcast as usual, but gutted to see a member of the team go :( I've listened to the podcast since the start. It just won't feel the same anymore. Can I ask what you're moving onto?
  • humpiedumpie - February 16, 2011 9:04 p.m.

    SADFACE :(! Best of luck in the future!
