    1. 10:09: Adam's world is coming apart at the seams.
    2. Here are my thoughts on Fight Night Champion. I loved 3 and 4, like Matt. I downloaded the demo for Champion and right when I realized the fighting style was different I quit out and played something else. I hope this doesn't make me sound like someone that hates change in game franchises but I think what they had was perfect and didn't need changing (concerning the analog stick fighting style). Either way if I do get the urge to pick up Fight Night Champion, I'll just go play round 4 and be perfectly satisfied.
    4. My philosophy on sports games is this: it is all about competition. If you boil down COD or Battlefield multiplayer and Madden or NBA 2k11 to their most basic elements you will come out with similar ideals and philosophies. It is all about trying to do something better than someone else or the cpu and that in itself may scare away the fantasy, action adventure types on feedback who I tend to side with.
    5. One more point on how stories in games are told. I loved how Alan Wake presented itself. It may have been a little too in your face with literally breaking it up with songs and calling them episodes but I thought it worked well, it helped calm me down with a rewarding and well done series of cutscenes. Another game with an intriguing design for telling a story (and one that I often flip flop on whether I like or not) is in Mass Effect 2. With every character comes their own story and most of the time it is completely separate from the overall story (stop the collectors and reapers). That was very different from the story that I think people expect from that sort of game. I understand that in RPGs like that it is customary to have side missions that are there so you can explore the universe as opposed to further the narrative; but with ME2 these were the main and central missions. In this sense, ME2 almost did have an episodic story line akin to Alan Wake.

    Why do people keep perpetuating this crap that America freaks out over sex? What have been two of the most popular TV shows in the past 10 years? Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives. Guess what they are about. Yes, there is a lot of crap over Mass Effect's alien side boob and butt that lasted for 2 seconds, but that is more because idiots in news stations still think video GAMES are aimed at kids because it is called a GAME.

    The voice of Elliot, Pete's Dragon, was Charlie Callas. Mickey Rooney played the lighthouse keeper. Shame on you guys.

    So a long game that's not linear, is fantasy, and was compared alongside mass effect? Also probably will be release in the not to distant future, maybe a week or two? I wonder what it is? .............................. ...(Dragon Age 2!, obviously)

    LoL! (As appealing as the trailer for it had made it seem) If the US isn't getting "We Dare", then forget it. Thats their market loss. And those who really want it will find a way to buy/get it.
    We'll get "Catherine" anyway.
    Off topic, but..will there be a review for Inversion & Knight's Contract?
    I'd really like to know what G4's verdict is on those 2 games.

    And maybe some coverage on the upcoming games, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier [Spring?] & Homefront [March 15?] ? (^_^)'

    Can adam make it more obvious that he's talking about Dragon Age 2? Especially when he lumps it along with Mass Effect? C'mon, what other long ass game is coming out any time soon?

    Kevin is not only funny but he's right that Battlefield series is the nice girl that is ignored by most because they're too occupied with the skanky girl aka Call of Duty series. Some gaming websites and magazines are guility of that... including G4 if you don't mind me saying.

    Looks like Adam is going to review Dragon Age 2 and I for one is happy he's doing it. Dragon Age: Origins didn't get much attention after the review, no Feedback or Talkabout. But since Adam is reviewing DA2, I'm sure it'll get the attention it needs. Then again, judging from the demo, it looks like DA2 hs been consolized so I shouldn't be surprised that it's receiving more attention at G4 than it's predecessor. Still, I can't wait for the review.

    Please, have J.P. Shub on if you are going to talk about DA2 in next week's Feedback, seeing as he mentioned he's a big Dragon Age fan in previous Feedback. Also, is Adam going to review DA2 just for the 360 or will he mention any changes in the PC version? Seeing as there will definitely be some differences between the consoles and PC version of DA2.

    Mickey Rooney played Lampie in "Pete's Dragon". The voice of the dragon, Elliot, was Charlie Callas.

    in regards to the viewer question, I think renegade meant in the sense where Alan Wake has episodes, and a game Like Modern Warfare 2 is very much built on huge set pieces or scenes to tell the story, like a movie. I can imagine a scene in a michael bay movie where a character has to race through favelas and chase somebody, or escape from a frozen ice mountain.

    has matt kyle lost his mind?? final fantasy vii didn't ruin RPG's! If anything it is games that are so called "RPG's" that have ruined the genre. onw an RPG has to be more like an action game than anything. That's just like saying nintendo ruined the game industry. I have to disagree 100%. Games like phantasy star had that anime style before Final Fantasy VII. If anything the heavily dominated first person genre of gaming has deluted our vision of what ruined games are!

    First Patrick and Sterling, and now Abbie? While Adam and Matt are pretty fun. Feedback is losing more of its fun co-hosts. Nothing personal but Kevin and Jake just don't really add much to the show for me.

    I'm glad you post the audio version of these. I listen to them driving to class in the morning

    If there's one thing I hate about Fight Night Champion is the damn ringsmanship. The greatest boxers of all time have some of the best foot work, the game makes moving around the ring a chore, the fighters feel like they are walking in a puddle of cement. I haven't bought a Fight Night game since the first one and I won't buy any of the games till they get the movement right.

    Its kind of annoying and disrespectful of G4 not to at least respectfully announce their co-hosts have left, and to Respawn no doubt (congrats Abbie). I mean the Feedback makes a living off of talking about gossip like IW staff getting laid off and video game scandles yet they seemingly do the same thing themselves.

    First Olivia Munn, then Patrick, Sterling, Abbie all vanish without the slightest hint of a "goodbye or good luck"?
