TalkRadar 30 – co-starring Jeff Gerstmann!

In case you missedTalkRadar 28 (opens in new tab)(and shame on you if you did), we couldn’t fathom why Giant Bomb awarded MK vs DCU a five star rating (their highest score). That led to forumites on both sites to start a-feudin’ an’ a-fussin’ about integrity and other such nonsense, so we simply called Jeff Gerstmann up and now you can hear the results of said conversation. Hint: we’re bitter enemies now. For real.

Plus we’ll cover Sonic Unleashed, Banjo-Kazooie and a little bit of Prince of Persia, as well as games none of us will get to until 2009. We’re also announcing the winners of the SmackDown! create-a-wrestler contest, so 29 lucky listeners will soon have their own copy of the game.

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.
