    I completely agree with overpriced expansion packs. I remember that they used to be just $20. But come on... $40 bucks for all the expansions of WoW.... That's when I realized how horrible companies can get away with. Along with $100 collectors editions. it's ridicules....

    Great show guys, and I think this whole 3D thing brings up a lot of great issues. Personally, I also see this whole thing as just a desperate ploy by movie studios to get bodies in seats. As far as gaming goes I don't really see 3D as adding anything, since most games today are already set in three dimensional spaces and all of the mechanics already work on that level. Basically, unlike something like motion control, you're not going to see new, innovative 3D specific game mechanics popping up since they're kinda already there. If anything, this new technology seems to actually be going against the direction of the rest of the home entertainment industry, since everything right now is all about higher resolutions and crisper visuals which 3D, at least for now, kinda screws up.

    As far as the whole sexuality in Bayonetta thing goes....where to even begin. A lot of people like to talk about how screwed up and icky the Japanese can be about sex and whatnot but, frankly, Americans can be just as ridiculous and weird. I think it's hilarious that all these sensitive gamer dudes are getting all worked up over a little TNA, so much so that they need to go kill some people in a third world country in Modern Warfare in order to cleanse the palette. I guess all these decades of the MPAA brainwashing America's youth has finally worked. Maybe it's not the boobs themselves, maybe it's the fact that Bayonetta, as a character, is totally in charge of her, rather ridiculous, sexuality. I can see how a lot of people in the gaming community would have a problem with that.

    Great, now I'm depressed......

    I'll be the first to fly the flag of a DA:O supporter, but after countless hours and multiple playthroughs of the game over the holidays I realized that it's formulaic. I didn't realize that I was such a Bioware supporter until realizing that Alistair is really Carth Onasi from KOTOR. And the parallels are everywhere, and they extend into the Mass Effect realm as well. After all the talk about "emotional engagement" as if it were a huge revolution it is a bit of a let down when the writers of these games are rehashing tired formulas that admittedly worked awesome on me seven year ago (or however long ago that was). Fact is, I need more than a change of character name and setting to really feel engaged, thanks.
    This makes me hesitant to purchase any new content for DA, let alone the entire game of ME2 which I was about to pre-order. Certainly the whole concept of a demo for the additional content of DA:A or bite sized portions like Fallout 3 would work much better on a reticent consumer in a mindset similar to my own. Yet, the bite sized portion option is yet another issue, as I find myself increasingly railing against this content because it feels like the makers of the game have a hook and line on my wallet once I've bit on the initial game.
    Don't get me wrong, I've thoroughly enjoyed all the games I've mentioned but perhaps I'm not the only gamer reaching a crisis point in the amount that these games are pulled from my pockets and my watch. I also like fresh air, sports, and going out with friends, so I'm having a bit of a dilemma when games seem like a monthly bill and an obligation.
    And with that said, I'm going to read a good book.

    However, I can't resist: "Rubbed me the wrong way... that came out wrong." Priceless stuff there Patrick. Haha! Too funny.

    I just ordered the shirt that Patrick is wearing yesterday... I feel weird now...

    as for Bayonetta, I played the demo on the PS3 a few times. I didn't really have much of an opinion on it, but I'll probably rent it in the near future, but it'll be on the back burner most likely because of the nice list of games coming out in the next few months.

    i have to agree..3d tv isnt 3d if i need to wear glasses..popsci said that eventually tvs will show multiple angles of an image..but even then it is a gimmick..also i totally agree with patrick about bayonetta..i just couldnt get into the overtly sexual nature of the game..as much as it may have been tongue in cheek..it was a turn off..and i loved devil may cry..i thought it was the bad ass hack n slash of recent days..better than god of war for the 5 or 6 key techs you had to string together and look cool..instead of the square four times then triangle..like it was a dynasty warriors or something..but obviously the kills were brutal and welcome..

    First time watching this and I must say....What a great show!

    I don't think the Dragon Age expansion should be considered DLC. This is an expansion pack, BioWare's fantasy RPGs (Neverwinter Nights in particular) have had large additions of content, and were priced somewhat high. It's not DLC, but an expansion pack, so it costs more.

    I think you guys are in denial. In 5 years, everybody will have 3D TV's. I saw an NVIDIA 3D gaming demo at PAX this past year, and it actually works really well, especially for FPS. Personally, I can't wait to play Madden or MLB the show on a 3D TV. Can you imagine a reboot of Shadow of the Colossus in 3D? I just feel like gaming companies will have a much easier time incorporating 3D than they are having with motion control. It just seems like it would be more intuitive for them as they are already building 3D landscapes.

    Although 2D games in 3D might also be cool. Remember Wario Land for Virtual Boy?

    I am very glad the panelists brought up Nintendo's bipolar(for lack of a more suitable word) market trends. It seems that every time I look to the next year of games for Nintedo, I can only pick out one or two Nintendo exclusive games that I can't wait for. I wonder how much longer Nintedo fans who have purchased a Wii will stick around. Furthermore, if in the next run of consoles we will see a huge "party realignment". Last thing, I found it intersting the panelists mentioned 3-D being a gimic, and later mentioning that motion controls were video games version of 3D. Are motion controls just a gimic? And do they really imersse you further in a game?

    I have been an avid gamer for many years and fully realize the validity of DLC as a means of keeping a title fresh and relevant after its release, but I can't help but be annoyed when I bring home a brand new release only to find out there is DLC available on day one. Why not include the DLC with the original release? With my $60 initial investment, I feel it's a very cheap (no pun intended) practice by game developers to bait gamers with another $5-$10 DLC package so close to the initial release of the game. Do you think the practice is valid based on the time between completion of the game and distribution or is it simply developers being greedy? Thanks.

    Why isn't this show on G4. Who runs that channel? So much wasted potential.
