Multiplayer appetites are a cyclical phenomena it seems, and Battlefield 3 is on the menu again (listed right there next to pork scratchings). Listeners, long-time community members, and newcomers alike have all had their community-based “Wolfenstein craze” reignited by the Podcast crew’s enthusiasm for these so-called “epic BF3 sessions.” So much so, that an overwhelming number of them have found themselves repurchasing the game, forking over for Map Packs, or peeling the cellophane off a shiny new Premium Edition. But twenty-some-odd gigabytes of downloads and installs later, many have been …

Pre-Show and Microsoft Press Briefing
1:14 PM – Watching the preview show at gametrailers.com. Every time I see the LA Convention Center, I think of Rush Hour. Can you blame me?
1:14 PM – 20 min until Microsoft wastes everyone’s time by spending a disproportionate amount of time on Kinect. Also, what makes Peter Molyneaux so legendary? I have never understood this. The guy seems out of touch and his games are meh.
1:14 PM – Little Big Planet Karting looks cool. Cool enough to get me to turn on my PS3.

Wow. I feel humbled with so many of you upping your game with this tournament. Really.
The Ghost Rider table saw some serious tour de force performances – Galford with a “cherry on top” 2.5 odd billion, Clubb8r Lang destroying the competition, XxSTEVIECEExX touting it like a pro and new comers Charlton Valley & Stewbed surprising their own expectations I suspect. Then there’s mrc1501 – hat’s off mate. Best of three on Street Fighter?
With any luck we can make this a go-to tournament for more pro-players that are out there? …

No game has me more excited or burdened by anticipation than ‘Rainbow6:Patriots.’ Still clinging to its 2013 release date, details on this installment are slowly but surely beginning to emerge from Ubisoft. As part of the Tom Clancy universe, RB6 maintains its place in history as the quintessential squad-based tactical shooter focusing on close-quarter engagements, nail-biting tension, & the perfect amount of “realism.” But it’s been several years now since the last installment and the “battlefield” has quite literally changed.

How do you make the sequel to the greatest super-hero video game of all time? Well that’s was the question on the mind of many when UK developer Rocksteady scored big with the 2009 smash Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Where Rocksteady succeeded with Arkham Asylum was to make you actually feel like Batman – The World’s Greatest Detective (TM). My Game Of The Year for 2009, mixed stealth, puzzles, exploration, gadgetry and being a badass together superbly.
I therefore had massive hopes for the sequel, Arkham City when it was announced as surely …

Preconceived notions that the author is “full of sh*t” are likely to be confirmed in the associated text. Any language that results in the activation of a sleeper cell is purely coincidental.
Gamers are trendsetters. Why else would we have such bad reputations if it weren’t for our uncanny ability to generate stereotypes about ourselves. There’s the pot smoking COD player, the stinky expo queuers, the stunningly handsome amateur podcasters, etc. …
