TalkRadar UK Episode 83

Listen now...

It's podcast time! Specifically TalkRadar UK time! A time when all gaming chatter is broken down into delicious, managable chunks for you to chew on and digest with ease. This week the men of GamesRadar UK discuss how to make the Nintendo 3DS better at getting unfit folk to waddle a bit further each day. There's an Appreciation Section dedicated to forgotten Capcom slash 'em up, Shadow of Rome, and some good news about the new SSX, mainly being it doesn't look awful anymore.

There are the usual regulars featuring your answers to Question of the Week - What videogame house would you like to live in and which character would you share it with? - your texts and calls to the GamesRadar Hotline and more sexual innuendos than you can shake a Carry On DVD at. Enjoy!

    After listening to the appreciation section, I may have to give Shadow of Rome another try

    I feel a little dirty saying this, but I enjoy this podcast a little more than Talkradar vanilla lately :/ I think its mainly you guys split it into more sections that are shorter, so things don't drag out as much.'Merican Tdar tends to be funny, then unfunny, then funnier, before they finally move on to something else. But of course each podcast having a different style is the whole point of listening to both, so I wouldn't want you to emulate them too much or vice versa

    No response to the smack-talkin' from the US TalkRadar guys about the greatest games stuff?
  • ChickenFillet5140 - April 6, 2011 9:08 p.m.

    Huzzah!!! Thanks guys.

    CUUUUNDYYYYYY!!! Forget MGS2, it WAS shit. But man... MGS3 is amazing! I think it strikes the same balance of cutscene and gameplay as in MGS1 and I personally think MGS3 is the best in the series. And it's a prequel so you don't need to know the story of the other games. Give it a go. Oh, and I must have played MGS2 at least 4 or 5 times (I was young!) but when I played it most recently when I was doing a playthrough of the series with my friends I swear Otacon never said he had an affair with his mum before! That was literally the first time I'd heard that line and the three of us there playing it just burst out laughing.

    This is literally the only thing that makes me proud to be English.
  • Eaxis - April 6, 2011 2:55 p.m.

    This is a great podcast.
  • veryweirdguy - April 6, 2011 1:59 p.m.

    I unsubscribed and resubscribed, and got a different file this time. I think it's okay now. Cheers!
  • GR_DavidHoughton - April 6, 2011 1:49 p.m.

    Yeah, there was an issue with that, but it should be fixed now. Sorry about that. Give the download another try and let us know how you get on.
  • veryweirdguy - April 6, 2011 1:45 p.m.

    Errrrrr, I got it in iTunes, labelled as Talkradar #83, but the file seems to be last week's cast (the talk about Metacritic was last week right?) Downloading the file off here now, but did anyone else have this problem in iTunes?
  • StrayGator - April 6, 2011 12:13 p.m.

    Seeing that poster helped me make up my mind. Where can I sign to join the KLA?

    Yay for new TalkRadar! Downloading it now.
