    I love this show! Despite it's flaws Assassin's Creed 2 is the most satisfying gaming experience I've played in a very long time. I'm talking about overall top to bottom the game is so deep, you have to put time and effort into it but it's so worth it. Finding and reading all the codex pages and "uncovering the truth" was in my opinion the best parts of the game. I love the maturity and open mindedness of it all if you want to call it that. It's awesome!!

    Does anyone get Adam's "needles in the road" reference? I don't and am just curious.

    Hmmm...with all this positive response to Abbie, G4 may have to pull a Morgan Webb on her.

    Also, it'd benefit the station to have another female head that's not just eye candy(the eye candy is a bonus for her!)

    I have one thing to say about video games and education. I think it sometimes lets kids be a little too lazy when it comes to learning. True, some aspects of games do teach children important lessons, but to say it could be a staple to replace music and physical education tends to resonate with me more than it probably should. I think the Wii is a good system for casual gamers and I'm a big DDR fan (primarily the arcade versions) but I don't believe this should replace physical education in the least bit. Kids should have to run, jump and just get dirty. As for music, I hold that aspect of my life very close. I played the piano when I was younger then got into singing later on. I believe having that in my life was very critical as a stress reliever. Sure, shooting some zombies (i.e. Zombies ate my Neighbors) was fun, but having the ability to sing songs that I loved was awesome.

    Done ranting, but overall awesome episode. I was somewhat disappointed that Batman: Arkham Asylum was not in goty or Dragon Age. I am however surprised by infamous being thrown into the bunch. I really enjoyed the game and found it very appealing, almost forgot it came out this year with all the great games that have been released the last few months. Overall great year, and I'm really excited for next year.

    *drool* FFXIII and God of War III !!!

    I see what you guys are saying about the multiplayer aspect of Dead Space 2, but with Halo you were the last spartan, yet in multiplayer there are tons. I think if the gameplay of the multiplayer is good enough then it will work.

    I'm just going to assume the lack of DAO is because it is long so they just didnt give it a lot of time. I mean all the games they have mentioned are REALLY easy to get a full feel of the game. Not so much with Dragon Age.

    Great show, but quite disappointing G4 ignoring such a good game.

    I am thinking about getting Dragon Age origins for the xbox 360. The game looks really good but I have heard their is a big problem with it. When you put 50+ hours in it. The game load/saves my corrupted or damaged your save games.
    And then you have to start all over again. Is this true? Has this happened to you?
    I want this game to be good.

    The question of why you liked the game so much after you beat it is very interesting to me. Alot of times its very hard to answer that question. Many times, at least for me, its the story. For exaple im a huge fan of AC1 and only after that first play though I realized the repetive actions you have to accomplish. But the story grabbed me and made me wanted to keep learning. Sometimes there seems to be only two types of gamers. Ones who can see though the somewhat flawed gameplay because of the story (People who like AC1) and the gamers who only play the game for the game (People who push A in the cut scenes of MW2). Ive never come across anybody who does both of my examples. So are there only 2 types of gamers?

    I love you guys but where is the Dragon Age discussion? Was still another fantastic Feedback, and look forward to hearing the Post Game of the Year show aftermath next week.

    Thanks for the Feedback

    Talking about entertainment teaching kids don't overlook the oldschool Heman and the Masters of the Universe, there is a life lesson at the end of every episode.

    I think that theres a big market for subtle education in video games... imagine learning about greek mythology by playing as one of the gods... imaging learning roman history by living it, plotting ceasars assasination, or commanding units in the peloponesian war (seriously developers get on these games) i dont think coming out and making a game where its obviously quizzing you on your multiplication tables will ever go mainstream, but I think a more subtle approach could almost certainly produce profitable, entertaining, and well constructed games

    I love Feedback, it's the best thing to happen to humanity since sliced bread. And I agree about Patrick's shirt amazing. The question was also a really good one, it's really enjoyable to get such knowledgeable people all together to talk about these things. Food for your brain kids.

    I wish Abbie had her own regular show. This girl knows her stuff, and is obviously a real gamer.
    I haven't tried Dead Space yet but I figured some day when I find it in the bargain bin at my local game store, but I just haven't gotten around to it. I think a sequel may once again spark my interest and compel me to give both games a shot.

    Good Video G4 guys :)

    Ma Halo :)

    In terms of announcing sequels: I think its is a good move for publishers to annouce upcoming sequels because if a game is generating enough buzz in order to warrant a sequel, then often find myself thinking "Alright, well maybe i should give it a try then." For example, I thought Mass Effect 2 looked cool, so I picked up Mass Effect. So, by announcing a sequel they may find themselves generating more sales for the past installments of the franchise.

    i played Where in TIME is Carmen Sandiego when i was young, and I remember I loved it so much that it was ALL i played for several months. I even remember going back to it after perhaps even years had passed. We seriously need more games like that out. Not only was that games fun and educational, but it was FUNNY, and the voice-acting was near perfect, save maybe a few lines. I still remember the constant laughs I got when I tried to put the dirty chicken in the fountain and got to hear the line "That chicken does need a bath, BA-BUT NOT IN THE TOWNS DRINKING WATER."

    i really liked the question at the end about education and video game; i think that it should be discussed further in another episode.
