It is time to once again gather the seven Dragonballs and summon, Shenron, the eternal dragon! Mike “The Birdman” Dodd helps Trunks and his fellow time patrollers control the history of the Dragonball universe in this sequel to last year’s surprise hit. Evil once again trips up the time stream and it is up to a new series of hero to step and help Goku and friends make sure history stays the same.
However…there is something oddly familiar about this game…almost as if we’ve been here before…weirdly like not much has changed. Has enough changed to justify another 60 dollar purchase?
Well, here it is at last – the much anticipated Playstation 4 and PC release: No Man’s Sky. Join Birdman as he welcomes Ryan “The Unevenflow” on a journey to the center of the Universe. Does the game live up to the hype ? Or is No Man’s Sky something different ? Some thing more ? Or something less ?
The answer ends up being somewhere in the middle. You’ll want to listen to our intrepid explorers as they both found things in No Man’s Sky to love, and wonders that just leave them wondering. So join our hosts as they decide on whether or not you should land and spend your tie with No Man’s Sky, or just hyperdrive on by it.
Time is running out and there is literally no time left…
Are you ready to manipulate the primal forces of the universe to return that late library book?
Welcome back my RAD listeners! Birdman has returned from zero state to bring you his extended thoughts on the first real big exclusive for the Microsoft family with “Quantum break”. Mike “The Birdman” Dodd heads off to help Jack Joyce unravel the problems that threaten all of existence in this action adventure game. Does this Remedy Entertainment game have the same charm as “Alan Wake” or “Max Payne” to deliver a memorable experience and launch a new IP?
Prepare to control the literal fourth dimension and see for yourself what happens when time breaks.
Time is your weapon, use it wisely….and don’t use it to manipulate time into getting free pizza
It is the year 10,000 BCE and you are laying low in the grass,spear at the ready and body tense with anticipation of the hunt….OR It’s 2016 and you have a bag of Doritos laying on the couch instead…
Welcome back to RAD and it’s our first review show of the year and we’re starting off with something different, FAR CRY PRIMAL on the Xbox One. Revealed as a Far cry game that took place in the time of early mankind and instead of guns we have spears and clubs and it looked weird but potentially really cool right?
Your host Mike “The Birdman”Dodd takes you through his experience with Tokkar, the Beastmaster and his quest to unite the Wenja of Oros. Delve deep into the prehistoric world filled with bears, sabretooh tigers and worse in this unique Far Cry game for the Xbox one.
Does this game deliver a thrilling caveman experience or would Fred Flintstone be a better protagonist?
We also learn how this game made Birdman husband of the year with his wife 🙂
Have you taken your RADaway today?
Well just ignore that radroach and be mindful of the feral ghouls and lets talk FALLOUT 4!
Welcome to the Commonwealth and the city of Boston wasterlanders! Mike “The Birdman” Dodd exits Vault 111 and sets out with you fine folks as his companions as he breaks down this latest entry in the long running Fallout series. The sole survivor sets out to find their missing son, Shaun and find out who murdered their spouse in this radioactive wasteland. It’s got thrills,chills and more then a very glitches BUT is it worth your time?
Zip up your vault suit and put a fusion core into your power armor and let’s get ready to tackle this brave new world
EDIT: Forgot to mention that you can have people say your characters name if you enter it right.
Here are some of my favorites
So, you’ve fought an ancient sun god and basically punched wild life and done all sorts of crazy stuff, what do you do for an encore?
This is Mike “The Birdman”Dodd and he is following up on the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider with the timed Xbox One exclusive ” Rise of the Tomb Raider” today on RAD. We get our passports stamped and prepare to do some globe trotting before finally ending up in Russia in pursuit of an artifact that could change what it means to be human but Lara wants it for more personal or family related reasons.\
Frozen tundra, unforgiving mercenaries and even more vicious wild life await our adventurous archaeologist as she swings, shoots and crafts her way across the Russian landscape.
Does this game offer up enough to new material to make it a worthy successor to the reboot’s successor or will we discover this game at the bottom of a bargain bin?
Spartans of Fireteam TWIG, this is Commander Dodd. The UNSC brass has asked something pretty big of us..bring in the Master Chief for questioning and Spartan Locke of Fireteam Osiris. So whose with me?
In this edition of RAD, we bring you a review thats more or less been in the works for a little over a week. Mike “The Birdman” Dodd joins the UNSC that is hunting down the remnants of the Covenant still loyal Jul ‘Mdama and then…something happens that no one quite expects and it leads to a chase across the galaxy and the Master Chief on the wrong side of the gun. Halo 5 continues the story of the Master Chief but also introduces to new Spartans and even some fan favorites making a return. A new multiplayer suite and even some microtransctions have invade this franchise but is it for the better?
Mike also shares his thoughts on the collectors edition of this game from the statue to the limited edition goodies inside.

Put on your MJOLNIR class assault armor and get to your drop pods….
Is this game a worthy successor to the Halo story or is it simply milking the franchise we should have left back in 2007?

Autobots, prepare to face down the Decepticon menace once again as we need to defend our new home, Earth.
In this edition of RAD, we take our new Earth form…as a weird fat guy…and get ready to fight Megatron and his army in TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION from Activision and Platinum games on the Xbox one. This latest Transformers game takes it’s inspiration directly from the Saturday morning cartoon and gives us classic G1 looks and characters in a beat em up style gameplay. Optimus Prime and his Autobot forces are once again on the front lines of this Cybertronian war but who will win?
Will this g1 love letter be the game we’ve always wanted or we will go back to the Fall of Cybertron and forget this ever happened?
It’s been several long years but now, it is time to bring the plastic instruments out of retirement!
Mike “The Birdman” Dodd steps up to the bright lights of the stage and prepares to delivery his review of “Rock Band 4” for the Xbox One. The plastic guitar phase quietly died out a few years ago but a new generation of consoles has arisen, will the need to rock also follow?
This new Rock band has certainly changed it’s approach to it’s Rock star simulator but were all the changes for the best?
Are you ready to activate overdrive or are you simply over it?
