Holy crow, T-Dar just turned 20! To commemorate this trivial milestone we’ve invited our very first guest, Dan Amrich of OXM, back on for another romp through the cussy, gritty world of TalkRadar. Most of the podcast is spent tearing down shockingly awful Uwe Boll scenes and the cheesiest, head-asplodingest videogame songs of all time.
We take a lot of things for granted in games. Such as guns that leave nothing but skeletons when they hit the enemy, or that you can hack a computer by playing a simple puzzle game. But no more. PC Gamer wanted to find out how far science was being abused for the sake of our entertainment.
There’s ‘do you think anyone smelt me dropping that beef biscuit?’ embarrassment. And then there’s ‘accidentally relieving your bowels in public after one too many beers and a chicken vindaloo’ embarrassment. Guess which category the following gaming shames fall into?
You’ll often hear about games lauded for their exceptional soundtracks. Some succeeded with NES-style bleeps, others had orchestral scores or fully licensed songs that lent credibility to a medium struggling to be more than a toy.
Movies based on videogames don’t have the best track record. We can think of one or two that are actually good, maybe a few more that are acceptably mediocre, but in general they’re awful piles of shit. And if there’s one man who’s added to that problem more than anyone else, it’s Uwe Boll.
Congratulations on finding your way to our Guide to Guides! If you’re on the wrong console page, use our helpful links to figure out what game you would like to become excellent at first.
Fact: Bruce Lee is better than Chuck Norris. Lee never hawked Bowflexes in his quest for the perfect mixed martial arts form. Lee kicked Norris’ ass in Way of the Dragon. And it was Lee who brought his proprietary blend of Kung Fu kickass-ery to the mainstream with his wild whoops, and a roundhouse kick that packed more power than the millions of stale internet jokes about his co-star. So why all the Lee love on a videogame site?
O HAI! I didn’t see you click in. I’m one of the co-hosts of GamesRadar’s super-ific, fantastical podcast, TalkRadar. What started out as an excuse for us to bite back at the internet and industry that feeds us quickly gained a following we weren’t quite expecting. That other podcast you like? This one’s funnier, better even.
Invincibility is nice. Infinite ammo and armor are pretty useful, too. Level skipping is a lazy gamer's dream come true...
Cheating, though, can be so much more! Why ask for an extra life when the right code will give you an entire army, or the power of a god? Why settle for a shortcut when hidden humor, violence, sex and evil are waiting to be discovered?
