    Other than Brian Austin Green, Joe Flanigan and Bradley Cooper are both very good picks. They were already mentioned and they're decent picks for Drake.

    Here's a pick no one has mentioned yet for Drake. BRIAN AUSTIN GREEN. Anyone see him in The Sarah Connor Chronicles? He was great. I think he's the perfect age, perfect look, perfect build, and he can pull off serious action stuff while maintaining personality and a sense of humor.

    well I bought Epic Mickey after listening to yall. Thanks Feedback for wasting 10 bucks and about 2 hours of life. I resold it on amazon this morning. After shipping and everything I only lost 10 bucks.

    Ummm.... so that game blows. Not sure why the camera issue is not a big deal to gamers who know better. Come on guys. I'm not mad, just makes me not trust what you say though.

    Bummed that it wasn't a better game cause I love disneyland and old cartoons. It wasn't enough to keep me though. So I'm back to Borderlands DLC.

    On a positive, the sound was good.

    OK, Adam. "Infinite Jest" is on my wish list at Amazon. Though I think it will end up next to my half-read copy of "Gravity's Rainbow".

    CGI Nathan Drake as Nathan Drake. Everything else is live action.

    Oh yeah, I just want to say one thing, to Nicole, don't act like RDR shouldn't have a chance against ME2 in the Videogame Deathmatch. That is how you sounded, right after Adam mentioned that ME2 was winning, you're like, "Rightfully so!", I dunno, that kinda annoyed me. I wouldn't of had a problem if you had said something like "I'm rooting for ME2", or "I think ME2 should win", in a non-rude way, that would be your opinion and I'd be perfectly fine with that. However, to say "Rightfully so" in what seemed somewhat chip-on-the-shoulder rude-ish like ME2 should be winning and RDR doesn't have a chance or should, that's not right.

    Yeah, I can see how I might be blowing this out of proportion, but it kinda got under my skin, so, yeah, wanted to get that off my chest.

    Frankly, I had a hard time choosing, was going to choose ME2 myself, but in the end, I chose RDR. Why? Because we've already had a ME1 2 years ago (roughly), while ME2 is changed and improved on various things, it's still the same type of game ME1 is. RDR on the other hand, albeit having similar gameplay to GTA, is fresh, new, and innovative in some ways. It's the first western, cowboy-ish game I've seen that's actually worth playing (how many has there been anyway?) and that I had interest in and loved (I'm not a western fan, at all). Yes, I've heard of Red Dead Revolver, never played it.

    P.S. Being able to Lasso people up should of at least made the votes near 50/50. :) Do you people realize how hard it was for R* to pull off getting a Lasso to work? Not easy, which is why you don't see it in MP.

    As others have said, Ryan Reynolds or Nathan Fillion are your best choices. You need a jokester and prankster with a strong physical presence but someone who can also carry the drama and angst of Nathan.

    Alternatives that I haven't seen yet is Josh Duhamel or Jerry O'Connell.

    And if I may be so bold:

    - J.K. Simmons = Sully
    - Kristen Bell = Elena
    - Maggie Q = Chloe

    Did you guys really just spend the entire feedback episode talking about "epic mickey". Wow. That was the lamest feedback ever. I rolled my eyes when Matt Keil was talking about how he was a huge fan of Donald Duck. I mean what are you 5 years old? I understand you guys like the paint thinner thing and the appreciation for Disney animation or whatever. But I am sorry... I am not playing a Mickey Mouse game. Give Nathan Drake some paint thinner and I am all in. But not mickey. This was the second worst feedback podcast next to the lame infomercial for kinect. Talk about something interesting next time please. k thanks.

    Only one actor in this day and age can pull off Nathan Drake convincingly: Johnny Depp.
    Now I have to say something I can't stand it anymore. I've tried since Nikole first appeared on the show, but can't maintain my silince anymore.
    For the love of sanity don't put her back on Feedback again!

    1. She is a journalist NOT a gamer. She knows little to nothing about games at all.
    2. Her voice is very high pitched and whinny. So high pitched as to almost pierce the eardrum. Reminds me of the Whiners from Saturday Night Live. She also almost always stresses the last word in a sentence to a high pitch that makes me want to hit the mute button.
    3. This episode proves it: She doesn't fit in. She is the proverbial square peg trying to be forced into a round hole. This episode she mostly kept her arms folded about her chest. A defensive posture often used when one is uncomfortable in their present situation, and she said what a whoping total of about 35 words the entire episode? Face it she don't fit in.

    Nikole this is not meant as a personal attack its just how I see things. She may be the finest person in the world.
    Say what you will about me its fine i'm far from perfect, and can take and profit from criticism.

    Again Johnny Depp for Nathan Drake :)

    COMMENT ABOUT ONLIVE: I have been a member of ONLIVE since July and was just talking to my wife the other day about why no one has covered ONLIVE on Feedback, then I tune in and lo and behold ONLIVE discussion on FEEDBACK. AWESOME!

    Regarding ONLIVE it is definitely a forward looking service, cloud computing has potential and the service does offer some triple A titles like Assassin's Creed 2, Batman Arkham Asylum, NBA 2k10, Dirt 2 and even Borderlands. Someone had mentioned in the comments that you can trial game for 30 mins and they are full game demos, this is true and it does work. I thought it important to also note that Onlive offers Play passes which are like rentals of a game in which you can try before you buy.

    Trial Passes work for 3 or 5 days and price break points are like $5.99 or $8.99 respectively depending on the title. FULL Play passes are like buying the game ($49.99 -$59.99) and last as long as your membership and connection to the net does.

    No, I don't work for Onlive, but I do work for a major video game retail chain and I am a supporter of the service, I own two major consoles 360 and PS3 and also game on the PC fairly regularly.

    Cloud computing is going to be apart of gamings' future, IF ONLIVE is that service to usher in that future remains to be seen, as there are also other services like GAIKAI who are doing the same thing. I for one will be watching to see what happens.

    I like Nathan Fillion and all but honestly, I don't think of him as an action star firefly was good an all but that was quite a while ago. I think to make a movie like uncharted your going to need someone lesser known as the main lead. Because if we see someone Matt Damon or Mark Wahlberg we tend to see the actor and not the character. Maybe someone like Noah Wyle, or that kid from Hostel. I don't know but to me Aaron Eckhart would be my choice just make sure you don't cast Tom Cuise.
