TalkRadar UK Episode 95: Grumpy old men

Listen now...

The triumphant trio return for another bout of heavyweight gaming discussion as Justin is KO'd by the sniffles. Bless. In this week's show the men discuss the tragedy that is the sales figures of Child of Eden and Shadows of the Damned, why L.A. Noire is not all it's cracked up to be and also some semi-wise words about what areas of open world games are crap. All this and the obligatory segues into madness talk for your listening pleasure.

Come get some.

    I loved the first FEAR, it's still one of my favourite FPS's. I somehow managed to lose my copy but managed to buy it again and it's expansions when they were on offer really cheap on Steam.

    Another awesome show guys, but I now feel guilty having not bought either Shadows of the Damned or Child of Eden :( Blame it on my severe lack of moniez.

    @Cundy While we're not on the subject, if you still want Dead Nation, you can redeem your second free game by going (from the XMB, not the store) to Playstation Network -> Account Management -> Transaction Management -> Services List -> Playstation Network Promotions. Should be able to get your second one there if you missed it first time! You know, if you care that much.

    My Question of the Week answer led to a 5 minute discussion about breasts. I don't know whether to feel proud or ashamed.

    that's my afternoon sorted!

    Another great cast, was hoping my phone call would get played, but never mind!
  • Matt Cundy - June 29, 2011 1:06 p.m.

    @veryweirdguy I feel the same.
