    Great stuff with this show. It's too bad EA didn't allow people that bought their game, why must they make it harder for legit methods, to redeem their code on Xbox Live (man that seems like a no brainer). On the fact about following previous actions and player choices for trilogy sequels, it just makes that game more alive. When you meet characters in Mass Effect 2 which you helped out or encountered in the first one you get a really good sense of depth in the Mass Effect universe that you're absorbed in (look at all the cameos GTAIV's DLC had which tied the virtual world and characters all together). I was excited about No More Heroes 1 but then heard about the disappointing motion control, seriously I hope Red Steel 2 can pull it off with the help of the motion plus (I like that Tiger Woods PGA10 finally got it right). I want to have the option to want to get the Wii for the fun and functional gameplay in the future when I have enough money to own more than one console. No offense if you're a Wii owner, just not my bag of tea, (and I grew up on the NES, SNES, and N64) plus I've got about 90 games on my Xbox 360's collection.

    i agree with ezeraeze, i want to hear some more details on MAG and gow 3. I dont want to compare MAG to modern warfare 2, but i would kind of like a comparison. i thats contradictory, but i want to see how it stacks up against the best in the genre, and if the 256 person battles work well or not.

    PATRICK, you seem to be the only one who answers questions here. Let me ask you this, why does everyone hate MAG? Especially Adam Sessler. You haven't even talked or reviewed it yet even though it is out. When Sessler was talking about ps3 games that are gonna be out this year, he left out MAG even though there are only a few games coming out. Now he just showed us that he doesn't even know the rating of it. What exactly is going on? Also after mass effect next week, would you guys please talk of God Of War III.

    With the Mass Effect 2 import save system. I think that it is done amazingly well. Bioware really knew what they were doing. What really impressed me the most was refrences to small little side quests you did in Mass Effect 1. Such as meeting Helana Blake in Omega, or overhearing the widow and her brother in law, whom you had the option to help in the first, argue about the health of his nephew and her son.

    I empathize with Abbie in how she feels about No More Heroes 2 'cuz contrary to her feeling about that game I felt kinda turned off about the character in Bayonetta. Perhaps its a women-are-from-venus men-are-from-mars kinda thing, I don't know. All in all great discussion guys!

    Lol! Abbie..
    "I just wanna watch Hancock in peace, d@mnit".

    XD Adam..
    "Oh no!"

    LOL..."He'll be here all week sounds like a warning".

    I can't believe Abbie got offended by the gratuitous sexuality in No More Heroes 2, but not in Bayonetta.
    Seriously, Abbie...Whaat?

    LoL..."Dude, Non-Dude".

    In Mass Effect, it's definitely good how they planned from the beginning for it to be a trilogy. It's an interesting point, then, that if the first game hadn't been successful, they wouldn't have made any sequels. It reminds me of Shenmue. That was planned to be something like a ten part series, but only 2 games ever came out because it wasn't successful enough (and the Dreamcast didn't work out). So it's definitely a gamble when a developer does something so ambitious like that, but if it is successful, it can have really great results.

    i love how they call this the no more heroes 2 episode and then when they talk about it all they do is bash on the direction taken with the sexuality of the game and then continue to praise mass effect 2. it really makes it sound like no more heroes 2 is a good game but if you want a better game then play mass effect 2, and i consider that to be unfair towards no more heroes.

    Sterling got DISCIPLINED. No but seriously that was a great discussion. It really made me wonder as to what is and isn't necessarily appropriate in video games (in regards to sexuality). I have to say though that I haven't played no more heroes, but from the looks of the way you have to charge up (which I am guessing you have to do often), it does seem to be a game specifically geared towards men. The developers seem to have forgotten that although the gaming market is predominantly occupied by men, there are in fact some serious hardcore bad motherfudging girl gamers too. I played the demo of bayonetta, and I actually liked bayonetta. Her sexuality was the most silliest, overrated thing I had ever saw. It reminded me of a hot chick in real life who was trying so hard to attain a level of sexuality which just wasn't her. baynoetta is a insanely strong female who happens to be hot, but doesn't seem to take it to seriously...

    The Irony is that I think even less chicks would play bayonetta vs. no more heroes simply because of trailers, etc (more chances to possibly be offended). Bayentta pretends to be something its not. No more heroes is what it is...

    As far as the sexuality in NH2 goes, I agree with the point that there is a bit of a Culture Barrier happening.
    I also enjoy the dichotomy of an emasculated man child being stuck in this hyper sexual videogame reality.
    And the point that both games are supposed to be parodies of the violence fetish and gratuitous sexuality so common in videogames (not that this is limited to videogames)
    I could go on but I guess it boils down to me being able to give NM2 the benefit of the doubt.
