TalkRadar UK Episode 77


Hola, senors and senoritas. Welcome to another exciting episode of TalkRadar UK. A podcast so packed with gaming goodness and inane rambling that we shed salty tears at each second of audio we have to cut at the final edit. <Sniff>

But what can you expect from this week's show. Well, there's the fallout from *that* Dead Island trailer where we discuss whether it'll be good or a load of old bum. Cundy struggles through another Appreciation Section with tales of over-friendliness with a chum. And Justin pronounces TOCA Race Driver in a way that provokes Cundy and Nath to savage him like a pack of wild dogs.

So come on in and sooth your ears with our dulcet tones and gaming banter.

TalkRadar UK Fan Art

Okay, Mooshon is setting the pace for the fan art up in the forums. He's had a pop at recreating Justin's nightmarish time holed up in a Bournemouth hotel during his first year at uni. Can you do better? Or worse, we're not fussy. Then prove it by posting some beautiful art in the forum thread and we'll put it up here next week.


Wait, what's this? A late entry to the fan art from Gregatron08 via his Twitter account? Why yes, yes it is. Made by a meme maker app no less.

    I'm a big fan of Tdar US, so I'd say its high time for me to give you guys a listen. That, and you guys have pretty cool accents.
  • NearNRiver - February 24, 2011 1:51 a.m.

    Also thanks for the great podcast! Look forward to it every week! Avid listener! Justin's my favorite!
  • Cat_Mundy - February 23, 2011 10:28 p.m.

    I'll listen to this tomorrow in work! I'm on the side of whoever pronnounces it 'Tokka'.
  • garnsr - February 23, 2011 10:21 p.m.

    Reading the tagline I figured it would be Nathan and Matt making fun of Justin for pronouncing it "Tokka," since anyone sensible would say "toe-ca," but I was wrong. Why do you Brits call him "Mare-io," have you ever heard any other actual Italian's name pronounced that way?
  • HowdyCowboyCheesesBurger0911 - February 23, 2011 8:03 p.m.

    justin was pronouncing TOCA correctly
  • Eaxis - February 23, 2011 7:23 p.m.

    Yay Talkradar:D
  • ShortFuse - February 23, 2011 5:21 p.m.

    Oh and on the Dead Island's a nice enough trailer but I don't understand the hype over a flashy trailer that has no gameplay elements whatsoever. By that token I'm not too optimistic about the game itself to be honest...Even though the idea seems alright, it just appear that it will never be able to live up to the hype this trailer's caused. Although if it shifts units, i'm sure they wont care!
  • gregatron - February 23, 2011 5:20 p.m.

    Hey my hipster kitty made the cut! Epic thanks lads! Much man love
  • shotgunalchemist - February 23, 2011 4:44 p.m.

    Misleading cinematic wank. My pal came over to mine the other day and he couldn't stop talking about the trailer, I'd not seen it because am sort of sick of zombies. First thing that came to mind watching it was that it looked like Heavy Rain with zombies but doing some research (wikipedia), we found the info on Techland and yeah...
  • garnsr - February 23, 2011 4:22 p.m.

    There was. Go to the More tab on the bar at the top of the page, and select Talkradar. Both versions are there.

    @wittynickname Our beautiful US cousins post their podcast on a Friday. Listen to ours to pass the time until then.
  • wittynickname - February 23, 2011 4:10 p.m.

    Was there a TalkRadar US this week? I nosed around a bit but couldn't find it, and I haven't been around long enough to know if there's a way to find out succinctly.
  • ShortFuse - February 23, 2011 4 p.m.

    Have been looking forward to this to brighten up my day a bit! Cheers guys!
