    Blair is great and all, but can't we bring in Adam 2.0 to start hosting feedback? ;)

    I hope you get a reward for what you did Mister S.J. best intro to any podcast i seen.
    Im not sure about the whole 3 year thing, if its a joke or he plans to leave the gaming world in 3 years, but i hope Adam and Blair co host Feedback. i think there both great host solo but , in Co-op they just really shine, Their actions and manors of conversation are very different and just make for a great show.

    And for the protection of our new host dont touch her ipad, dont do anything like... i dont know, add/chance her passwords to unlock it.

    So I started the episode and saw that Blair is taking over. I almost turned it off. Having watched the episode I wish I had. Blair is fine in small idiot roles but he never needs to host or be on screen for more then 10 seconds. Please find a less ridiculous host.

    First of all, I welcome the changes and/or rearrangements of the Feedback team, and Blair is an excellent lead. But I will admit that I am partial to Adam Sessler, and so as long as I know he has some part to contribute (whether just as the man behind the curtain, or as one of the rotating panelists) I will remain a devoted viewer. I also argue that most of the comments here are rife with dissent because most people simply don't like change (and are often afraid of it). But don't worry Feedback... I have (dare I say it) faith in all of you.

    As a post-script... are we not to hear any discussion on Dark Souls? Really? None? Zip? Blair, come on man, I know you're a fan. Throw us fellow fans a bone, and some discussion along with it!

    Change is always scary. I will miss The Sess, that is certain. I am, however, happy for Blair to be given the seat. When he first showed up on G4 I couldn't stand him but he as grown on me. I also like seeing Jessica Chobot on here more. She brings a lot of energy to the show.

    I agree with the other posters. Blair is awesome, but not Feedback host awesome. I like his little comments and silly jokes, they remind me of my big brothers. But as a host, the guy who does most of the speaking and interrupting of guests, I don't think he can fill in those shoes.

    Congratulations anyway, haven't watched the ep yet, just basing my opinion of Blair being host off of the many times I've seen him on g4 before.

    Great guy, good to have around, but not host material. RIP Sess.

    The Batman Arkham series of games are amazing. I hoping they make better comic super heroes games other than Batman. Superman, Green Latern, Thor, Iron Man, and X men Destinty have been awful. They need to follow the Batman formula, in creating a great game. I wouldn't mind seeing Spawn, Punisher ,Dead Pool or even Dare Devil get a chance in becoming the next Arkham games.

    I love Blair Herter, he is AWESOME. I'm not joking, he makes me laugh more than any of the other people who work at G4TV.

    But, I watch Feedback for The Sess.

    The one thing I can say is, if this is something Adam wants, we should all support it.

    So with that being said, I, for one, welcome our new Blair Herter / Jessica Chobot overlords.

    I understand r johnson i feel the same way about Gears of War 3 while it is definitely a kick ass game once mw3 comes out GoW3 is going to be on the shelf and i am not going to miss it. Just my opinion.

    I personally don't think Blair is funny or well spoken in any way. The reason I watch this show is because I value Adams oppion and is insight into video games. This show I fear is going to go the same route X-Play did when Adam left, towards gimmicky crappy boring unwatchable smut. Yay for Blair though maybe he can be unfunny some more and get another show.

    Thane (from the top of my head), was from a race called Drell. The Drell were a pre-space race (or at least not an advance mass effect race) and they had some sort of ecological disaster - they over populated and over polluted the planet, as I recall. The Hanar saved a large portion of the Drell species and the Drell took it as a point of honor to serve and help the Hanar. As I remember, he pointed out that in their native planet, the Hanar were graceful and fast and it was very wet. The Drell planet, on the other hand, was very dry and some Drell developed an allergic reaction or disease to the very humid Hanar home planet, which Thane developed.

    I am sure the wiki or another play thru would be more entertaining, but I recently played a complete Paragon pay thru. So far I have three main plays: A Mix (first attempt), a mostly renegade, and mostly paragon play (there are some things I could not do... I always had to have Legion and was never truely renegade enough to let them kill Legion for technology/extra credits).

    Ok, i'm just going to put this out there. To me Batman is a rich guy who's parents are killed by a member of the lower class. So Batman sets out on a life mission to beat up poor people. The only reason he gets away with this is because he is rich... The only thing stoping him from killing all the impoverished of the city are the so called "villains" who organize the otherwise defenseless poor. The entire fiction is about his tyrannical construction ,then ultimately destruction, of an almost feudal like society. batman has forced the poor and defenseless of the city to ally themselves with cruel and oppressive "land lords". Batman must then destroy the land lords/ villains he has indirectly created so that he can murder the then defenseless impoverished of the city that he so dearly hates.

    BOO-urns! (Simpson Reference)

    The Sess is a big part of why I enjoy Feedback week after week. It's pleasant to hear an educated, well-spoken gamer speak on a variety of far reaching topics, not always about gaming, but always pertinent to the discussion and video gaming as a whole--he's like the super awesome Charlie Rose of video games. If NPR ever had a video-gaming All Things Considered, he'd be on it.

    I like Blair, I think he's a good cat, as is Stephen, Jessica and the rest of the motley cast of Feedback, but I can't help but be frowny that The Sess isn't at the helm anymore.

    So congrats to Adam for winning back more of his precious free time and Blair for his promotion to the big chair, but I can't help but "pour one out" for Feedback.

    Online passes are complete and utter crap. Publishers should not be paid EVERYTIME the initial bought copy is resold. I'm tired of the nonsense that all of the sudden the used game market has become the great bane of the game industry, even though it has existed for generations. And guess what? the industry continued to not only grow but thrive.

    So I'm sick and tired of gamers defend and protect the publishers who are giving them a raw deal.

    Welcome to the future of gaming!

    With Adam gone and Mr Blair "I'm trying to hard at this" Herter doing this show, I guess I'll be watching Feedback less and eventually stop all together.
