Be Feedback's Question Of The Week!

Funny. I know there’s something I’m supposed to ask you all, seeing as it’s Friday and everything, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it is. Something about video games?...Yeah. That sounds familiar. Seems a bit broad though…Hm…Maybe if I try to do some free association. Games. Games. Video. Question. Friday. Feed. Back again. Week…Oh! Feedback question of the week! Knew it was in there somewhere. Just needed a little rattle.

Now that we have that sorted out, you probably want to know what next week’s game of the week is going to be. If not, then honestly, why are you even reading this? I mean, get with it. For everyone else, the game of the week will be the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta. We’ve already shared some of our thoughts on the beta, but we’ll dive in deep on the show, so definitely tune in. In the meantime, let the questioning commence!

There is a perfect storm of games this week as Portal 2, Mortal Kombat, SOCOM 4 and Conduit 2 all hit store shelves. We talked about SOCOM 4 on last week's episode of Feedback, so this time we're wormholing deep into Portal 2 and finding out if Mortal Kombat is worth the fatality. Or even the babality.

Adam is back in the captain's chair this time around, along with the always delightful Morgan Webb who valiantly reviewed Portal 2 for us, Jake Gaskill freshly returned from Utah where he attended Bethesda's BFG event, and even Donell "Diablo" Tucker in his inaugural apprearance as a part of the Feedback team. Donell has been up to his eyeballs in Mortal Kombat, so pay attention to what he has to say.

Adam is back for this week's Feedback, aren't you glad? After a few miserable weeks of relatively small release titles, this week brings three hugely anticipated games with Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, and SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs. The panel has been fighting their way through Mortal Kombat and shooting their way through SOCOM 4 quite a lot over the past few weeks (and Morgan is somewhere lost in Portal land) and we would love to hear your questions about these games and other industry news.

The panel this week will include Adam Sessler, Morgan Webb, Jake Gaskill, and first time Feedbacker Donell Tucker who specializes in fighting games. Be sure to write your burning questions about these games, or whatever else you want to talk about that's gaming industry related, in the comments section below and tune in to Feedback every Wednesday.

Feedback time! This week Adam is out, finishing the exhaustive work on his epic three-part rock opera based on the video game industry, so we enlisted Morgan Webb and Blair Herter to fill in. Look for Morgan's return next week as she reviews a certain highly anticipated, wormhole-based game.

All of us were able to play SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs, and we're going to tell you what we thought about it. We also round up the bigger news from Capcom's Captivate event, where they revealed a lot of new games, and gave tons of details about upcoming titles. Plus tidbits, jokes, obscure references, and more. Watch and be amazed!

Be Feedback's Question Of The Week!

We're returning to the regularly scheduled world of video game releases this week on Feedback, and we'd love to have your questions join us as well. SOCOM 4 might not be out quite yet, but we've all been playing it, and we welcome your squad-based questions about it. Or your single-player questions. Basically, just your questions. Whatever you want to know, everything is fair game. Except don't ask Morgan Webb about Dynasty Warriors. That can only end poorly.

Oh wait, that's right! I didn't tell you. Blair Herter and Morgan Webb will be filling in since Adam fell through an Aperture Science portal at lunch, and we're not sure where he ended up. Until we figure out where he is, the driver's seat is up for grabs. Anyone got a portal gun handy? Even if you don't, send us your questions in the comments below, and be sure to tune into Feedback every Wednesday!


Welcome to the Doldrums of April! This is one of those black hole weeks, where all of the good video game releases seem to have been sucked onto other dates. For instance, this Tuesday was a wasteland, but on April 19 you'll get Mortal Kombat, SOCOM 4, and Portal 2. Holy video game overload, Batman! You'd think publishers would want to space these out a bit more. So you know, you have that busy week of gaming to look forward to.

So instead of dissecting that Alaskan hunting game which is completely Sarah Palin-free, Rob Manuel takes us into the world of indie games and Leah Jackson, freshly returned from MLG Dallas, takes us to the land of competitive eSports. We also talk about the news and goings on in your favorite industry. Check it out. You'll see.

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Feedback is tackling some topics this week that we need your help with. That's right, you. It's a bit of a slow week for video games, unless you're a gigantic fan of Remington Super Slam Hunting: Alaska for the Wii. And who isn't? So we're expanding our scope to video games in general, and we're going to go off the road just a bit. 

We'll be talking about digital distribution in the wake of Gamestop's recent acquisitions, and the news about all of the hacking going on everywhere. Plus we're talking indie games and MLG Dallas. It's a veritable cornucopia of different topics, so what do you want to know about the above subjects? Want to know what defines an indie game? How much fun Leah had in Texas while nerding out watching the pros play? Or do you want to know the secret identity of some of the top hackers? (Hint: we don't know).

Drop your questions into the comment section below, and then tune in on Wednesday!

By now you've either picked up a Nintendo 3DS, plan on picking one up, or want nothing to do with the thing at all. What category do you think we fall into? We've been checking the system out for a couple of weeks now, and Feedback is ready to tell you exactly what we think about it., in every dimension available to us. Which is technically four, if you cound time. Right? I don't know. I'm not Einstein.

We also delve into the world of WWE All-Stars, talk about Tiger Woods and his swinging ... in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters. We also answer your questions, talk about the news, and generally just devolve into gaming mayhem. You know, the same thing we do every week on Feedback. Join host Adam Sessler, along with guests Matt "I Bought A 3DS" Keil, Mike "Sign Me Up For Sweaty Men" D'Alonzo, and Dana "Check Out My Sexy Sick Voice" Vinson as they talk about the issues you want to hear about.

Morning Hangover #71 -- Andrew Looks For Feedback, Patrick Has TV Envy

Feedback is leaving the plain old two dimensions behind this week and talking about the Nintendo 3DS! Got questions for us? Fire away. No matter what dimension they're in, we'll answer them. Want to know about the hardware? The launch lineup? The good? The bad? The ugly? Hit us.

As a bonus, if you have any burning questions about WWE All-Stars in your pocket, hit us with those as well. And if there's anything else burning in your pocket, please see a doctor. Because that's just not natural.

Happy hump day, Feed faithful! Fancy meeting you here. Well, since you're here, I might as well give you your weekly dose of Feedback. You're welcome! On this episode, Adam Sessler is joined in studio by none other than Stephen “Hooters” Johnson, Nikole “Not Enough Pokemon in This FPS” Zivalich, and Kevin “Sniffles” Kelly.

In addition to following all of the biggest news of the day, the crew spent the past week checking out two of the year’s most anticipated shooters, Homefront and Crysis 2, both of which paint similarly grim pictures of America under siege from foreign attack, but only one of which has inspired Stephen Johnson’s new catchphrase, “Enemies in the Hooters!” Check out the full show to see which game is to blame:

Feedback is heading back into the studio, and we're going to be talking Homefront, Crysis 2, the Nintendo 3DS, and "Whatever you desire." Which is a thinly veiled reference to L.A. Noire, courtesy L.A. Confidential. Dang, I'm really looking forward to that game. But we won't be talking about it this week. No! Less detecting, and more FPSing!

There's a lot more to talk about on this episode, but it won't be complete without your input. What questions are burning up your brain like a high fever? We want to know so we can answer them. No question too big, no question too small. We'll take 'em all on. 


PAX East was epic this year, and not just because the attendance  at 69,500 exceeded any previous PAX, but because we banged our way through tons of content, and topping the charts was the fact that Irrational Games' co-founder and creative director Ken Levine joined us on Feedback LIVE! to talk Bioshock Infinite, PAX, games, Dungeons & Dragons, and more. It is incredibly refreshing to know that a game developer of his caliber is a true geek at heart. One of us, if you will.

But that's not all! There's a couple of surprises in this video, and watch closely for a very special guest. It's nice to take the show on the road, and we're looking to book additional guests coming up in the future. Who do you want to see on an episode of Feedback? Let us know. But, before you do that, watch this episode and learn all about PAX and Ken Levine, hear more literary references from Adam Sessler, obscure games from Matt Keil, Pokemon love from Nikole Zivalich, and yours truly Kevin Kelly actually managed to wedge some zingers in there somehow.

It's FeedPAX! The next best thing to being there.

Greetings Feed faithful! It’s that time of the week again, and even though our skilled team is still recovering from GDC and in the process of prepping for PAX this weekend (whew!), we knew you’d just be a wreck if you didn’t get your Feedback fix. And to be honest, so would we.

So this week, host Adam Sessler welcomes Matt Keil, Stephen Johnson, and Nikole Zivalich to chat about the highlights from this year’s Game Developers Conference, including Battlefield 3, Reckoning: Kingdom of Amalur, Dead Island and more, as well as what we are looking forward to at PAX. The gamer gang also discusses the game of the week, Dragon Age II, and dissects the missteps, the missed opportunities, and the sadly overshadowed successes of BioWare’s latest fantasy epic.

GDC is now behind us, but PAX East looms large this coming weekend. If you aren't going to be in Boston braving the cold and seeking out new games and geekery galore, then you'll probably be bundled up warm and snug playing Dragon Age 2 or trying to catch all of the Pokemons in Pokemon Black or Pokemon White. Either way, one thing that will help make your week complete is a full and heaping serving of Feedback

But as with every episode, we want your input! Ask us the questions you need to know about gaming, and we'll get you answers. Want to know about PAX East? Inquiring about Dragon Age 2? Wondering what games on the horizon are going to be worth checking out? Which ones you'll want to ditch? Why shouldn't sore thumbs from button-mashing be covered by insurance? Anything you want to know, ask away.

Most of our team is up in San Francisco right now, bringing you the latest and the greatest from the Game Developer's Conference. So if you really care about that stuff, you can head over there and give it a look. We won't be that offended. But for those of you who care more about Feedback than you do about GDC, you're in luck! We performed some electro-tomfoolery to bring you this slightly time-traveled edition of Feedback, and here it is.

What does that mean? It means those GDC announcements that we're referencing in the video ... HA! The joke's on us, because it was Find Makarov. But not to be left unheard, Battlefield 3 came out and managed to impress just about everyone in the world, proving that video games do still indeed rule the airwaves. Speaking of airwaves, we're using those to bring you this episode of Feedback where we decide if Fight Night Champion is worth fighting for, and then we delve in somewhere where we normally never tread: a discussion about sports video games.

Slap in your mouthpiece, start jabbing, and get into Feedback. Don't worry, we're in your corner.
