What to Expect...Edit

Welcome one and all and very merry Christmas to you. You're probably sick of the sight of turkey by now, not to mention your relatives and the oh-so predictable Christmas TV schedule, right? Well, why not escape the sadness by tucking into a tasty special episode of TalkRadar UK - the only games podcast with an actual reference to Five Children And It (right).

This Christmas themed edition contains a round up of the highs and lows of gaming in 2010. Fuelled by alcohol, the finest mincepies that £2.99 can buy and some pathetic Christmas crackers, the whole GamesRadar UK team are crammed into the studio to discuss their best and worst of the last twelve months.

So what are you waiting for? Come on inside and treat yourself to gaming chatter, tales of sexual innuendo and essentially five grown men becoming increasingly more drunk before your very ears.

Bonus ContentEdit

Want to see what it's like in the TalkRadar UK studio? How about when it's Christmas and we're all drinking the old alcomahols? Well, now you can. Not only do we have photos which show how our favourite scotsman likes to waste good mince pies...
