    Well I know that at least one of you reading my posts lives in a utopian brainwashed dreamworld. If you can't connect the dots on the subject that I commented on then you are undoubtedly a wacko.

    Barely anybody wants predators around, not enough predators=to much prey, to much prey=disease, starvation, destruction of natural and farmed resources.


    1. Introduce more natural predators? Not enough public backing.

    2. Let animals die for nothing? WHY?????

    3. Allow people to harvest game, use that animal for food, clothing, create a more natural balance.

    If you would leave the city and learn where your food comes from, it might help you understand.

    Everyone wants cheap, clean, healthy food. Wild animals provide that. You want to GO Green? Learn how to grow a garden and kill and eat wild animals. There is nothing more Green on this planet I assure you.

    Find somebody who knows how to do this and learn about it. Or believe your silly little untruths and stick to the asphalt, please.

    Great episode. haha Sessler you are the man. That face on the Candyman cover was kinda creepy... I personally am a bit behind on some great games that have come out recently. So I can spend the summer game drought catching up. Also being a part of the giant money and time consuming evil known as World of Warcraft, that tends to eat up a lot of my spare time. haha

    Question of the Week:

    With the news that Megaman Legends 3 is canceled, a lot of fans that have been waiting for this game for a long time, including myself, are feeling absolutely gutted. It's not uncommon in the industry for titles to be announced and canceled, but when it involved the community's input to such a high level it stings even worse.

    My question is, as enthusiasts yourselves, have there ever been games that you have been waiting for or looking forward to, only to have canceled? If so, what were they? And if you could have one game in your hands to play that has never been seen through to completion, which one would it be?

    Thanks guys.

    You said it perfectly Adam. It doesn't feel so much as a drought from video games available, but a drought where you just don't feel like sitting down and play them. I myself have a list of games that I still need to play, but I just feel burned out and don't feel like sitting down to play.

    Question of the week: We all know some games are amazing, but simply fail at retail, such as Psychonauts or Okami. Other games look amazing during development, but are horrible after launch. Yet other games look great in development, but are canceled before they launch. My question is: what is the most tragic game or games that suffered the previous 3 (or other) fates?

    Summer droughts do put a damper on Gamers sometimes, but its one of those times that actually allow me to save money for newer games come Autumn and Winter, or spend time with older games like Last Remnant... Without the Drought, I wouldn't of been able to pass the first 14 hours of the game. So I guess that's a positive? Especially if you discover that a game you have is/can be really good and hey, why not tack on some DLC to increase the gaming experience.

    I have to take issue with your discussion of Battlefield 3's E3 showing, especially in relation to Modern Warfare 3's own showing. First off, Battlefield 3 has from it's announcement, been aimed at exciting PC gamers. You guys and indeed most of the console players out there may understandably have been uninterested in such a long demo featuring tank combat, but you can rest assured that PC players were on the edges of their seats at that, loving every minute of it. Second, and lastly, Modern Warfare 3's showing was pisspoor. It began with an inordinately lengthy underwater scuba sequence that was cool and cinematic for a good four seconds before it become a bore, and then surprise! More linear military action movie scripted sequences and turret sections.

    As a primarily console gamer myself, I have to say that neither game was terrible interesting, but Battlefield was at the very least middling, while Modern Warfare was insultingly bad. BF easily won, at least in my opinion, when it comes to the two games' E3 2011 demos.

    Regarding the issue of disgruntled workers. What it boils down to is that there is a real sense, around the world, but especially in capitalistic countries, that says what one person does, is more important then what another person does. And of course pay goes along with that...

    Here is a fact. The most respected people in this country (America heck yeah) are doctors. I know doctors. My step father is a doctor. Hear this. If you knew the types of people, whose hands in to which you are placing your health, you would never trust a single thing to leave their mouths. In contrast the least respected workers are sanation and maintenance workers. With out these people, our way of life, our very civilization would crumble and fall in the space of a single month. With out doctors, people have a shorter life span. With out sanitation, death would stalk every street in alley. Pestilence, disease, the likes of which has not been seen in the "developed world" for generations. So really. Who is important?

    How do you prevent disgruntled employees? You treat every single person on your team, from the highest trained software engineer to the guy who empties the trash can as if they are vital and irreplaceable. Because they are. Sure there is always another guy who can get the job done. That is not the point. The point is to say to your team "We are the best friggin team around, and we are going to prove it by bringing product to market so that everyone can see how great each and every one of us are."

    Sure. One guy always gets all the glory. But its when they start to act superior to their "lesser peers" that animosity starts to build up.

    Candy land is a great drinking game, and chess is awesome. Also a drought won't really exist till the indie developers stop making games.

    Why does the feedback crew hate the movie industry so much? You guys are forever ragging on the movie industry talking about how X movie was horrible or what have you and now once again taking a dig at it in this video. Are you telling me Inception wasn't innovative? The Fountain? Memento? Scott Pilgrim?

    you guys missed this amazing game called DARK TOWER- It was a board game that had a big tower that rotated in the center were you could buy soldiers and haggle with the shop keeper for things, and the tower had things in it that rotated around and displayed images through a tinted door/window thing and it was amazing check it out- you'd also fight these tree-esque type bad guys called bygons or something like that- check it out

    Exactly Hellborne, certain parts of Africa have to have herd management. I guarantee with no uncertainty, he was in an area that needed herd management. Wild elephants and people do not mix well.

    I am an avid hunter in N. America, with less predators to kill herbivores, hunting and trapping is a must. Without proper wildlife management overpopulation kills more animals and more humans. Disease, automotive accidents, and starvation of wildlife/crop loss for farmers is what you get without management.

    And yes hunting and trapping is necessary. You cannot have it both ways. Human overpopulation will lead to contact with wild animals, and not all of them are grass eaters. If numbers are not kept in check many bad things will come of it.

    Would you rather have an animal starve, die of disease, be put to death for harming a human, or be harvested to feed and cloth somebody? Which is the more humane death of a living creature?

    Since nobody wants deadly predators stalking through their towns and properties, the hunters and trappers try to even the herds out.

    Hunters and trappers do the dirty work that the tree huggers think is wrong and not humane. The biggest difference is we have the blood on our hands, but that animal is not wasted by being left on the side of the road to rot, or being euthanized and thrown in the incinerator.
