    My phone only seems to download half the podcast, it stops around the part where they are talking about the GamesRadar hotline..... :(

    honestly guys as soon as you talk about nintendo i just switch off, im not against people enjoying themselves on casual games, but Nintendo are always a gen behind everyone else and live off 15 year old franchises, they never take any risks with new franchises or crazy new software. They take a risk with hardware but only reply upon gimmicks, i just feel that people who are playing nintendo products now simply cant let go of their past, mario is good so is zelda but even sega and ubisoft tried a new franchise with the wii, Nintendo just dont bother, i find it lazy and arrogant to live off your franchises created such a long time ago.At least MS & sony have their own studios or acquire studios with fresh ideas and new IPs. its quite funny hearing dave saying Nintendo made their money from the plebs, kind of reinforces my statement of people needing to move on from these games played during your childhood.Unless your playing them with your own family. Just my view though, i think motion gaming is step side ways and not forward, just delays the next gen a little while.

    Hell yeah for new TalkRadar UK, been busy all day and looking forward to this. One for tomorrow morning though I think. Nothing like waking up to the sounds of Dave, Nath and Cundy. And I can never work out the Recaptchas. Maybe I'm actually a robot.
