Welcome to Morning Hangover -- an excellent way to start your day with the crew at TheFeed...no matter what you're recovering from. Every morning you'll hear musings from our editors and have the chance to share your thoughts on what's going on in the gaming world. So buckle up, throw a Pokeball at the new week, and keep reading!
Patrick Klepek: I knew the moment I published a piece vigorously defending Halo 3 ODST and its brighter qualities, there would be a deluge of feedback from readers about its price point. I'd debated bringing up the price point and value assessment in that piece, but that wasn't what I wanted to talk about. It came up anyway, though, and while I want to address where price factors into the equation in a later post, here's a quick one: how much would you have preferred Halo 3 ODST to cost?
You can't say free.
Andrew Pfister: I am writing this a few hours before last night's Pearl Jam concert in Los Angeles. As you're reading this, that's already happened. Temporaly confused? So am I, but it doesn't matter, because Pearl Jam rocks through space and time...and also Rock Band. Their new album "Backspacer" is available in full for download shortly after the release of the album itself, and with the already announced project that will incorporate fan-voted live tracks, now's a very good time to be part of the "Jamily." (Ugh, 19 years later and that's still a terrible name.) I'm realizing, mostly with horror, that there's an entire generation of young rockers who don't really know the band but would absolutely love them, and hopefully their presence in Rock Band will open up some ears.
