TalkRadar 25 – oooh, scary!

Hope your ass is in-costume for our moderately special 25th episode of TalkRadar. This time we’re chatting up the least scary moments in otherwise scary games, then Charlie dares to suggest that games are, in fact, never scary. Then we fight about Silent Hill 2.

Also: all the usual BS we yap about every week, lovingly accentuated with profanity, sound effects and allegations that no judge or jury could ever prove.

Explicit Content Within! Persons with delicate ears should definitely not listen, as they will hear edgy no-no words freely spoken on South Park and HBO.
