TalkRadar UK Episode 84

Or listen now... 

Good day to you, and welcome to another sparkly episode of TalkRadar UK. What can you expect from the the triumphant trio this week? Well, Dave's had some hands-on time with a couple of stellar PSN exclusive (read: timed-exclusive) games including one that sounds suspiciously like Rockstar's LA Noire. Justin delves deep into his psyche to talk about a game that only three other people will remember in the Appreciation Section. And Nathan fills in the rest of the show by stumbling over long words as he reads out your texts to the GamesRadar Hotline and your answers to Question of the Week.

All of this and bloody loads more. LOADS! Enjoy.

    Stayed up till nearly midnight waiting for this :D Cannot wait to listen. ...I wonder if the DOA girls would like to listen to the podcast? I'm sure Cundy would give them a run for their money.

    There was like a 5 second mention of grange hill on the last one ha. All that I required.

    Yay. This is such a great podcast!
  • LordsOfTechno - April 13, 2011 5:29 p.m.

    Yay, I've just managed to fix my iPod in time for TRUK! Also about the USB stick thing. I claimed for one but it hasn't arrived yet. I'm just wondering if it's either not been sent out yet, or if one of the cheeky sods at Royal Mail have decided to claim it for themselves; it's probably the latter knowing my luck but I'm just wondering...

    I'm going to keep trying to get more US/Canadian listeners by re-posting this in the forums, if that's okay with you guys. Keep it up!

    I love Snake Eater, especially the opening theme. WHY the HELL did I sell that game!? I remember playing the ladder section and loving it, it just felt SO RIGHT.
