    Two simple things that I want to talk about. First off, the new WoW expansion is not World of Kung-fu Panda. If anything at all, Kung-fu Panda took inspiration from the Warcraft 3 expansion Frozen Throne which first showcased the Pandaren, 5 years before the movie came out.
    Next about the issue of DLC. I personally don't buy any DLC that only includes Map packs, weapon skins, and other trivial fluff. That to me should be given to players for free as a thank you to being faithful fans to their franchise. The whole Call of Left for Dead DLC, that I would say is worth extra money. But remakes of older maps, that you paid for before, and some off color guns that are basically the same as you already have? No Thanks.....
    DLC that I think is worth the price, is most "RPG" content. Look at Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Borderlands, etc. That to me is definitely worth the price of admission as it truly adds something to the game.
    I am just sick of publishers trying to nickle and dime me for things that should be free anyways. I really want to see what happens to the X360 version of Witcher 2. Since on the PC version, CD Projekt promised that all future DLC would be free to those who purchased the game. Will Xbox Live offer the same? I hope so, cause that game is awesome and for the X360 owners to have to pay for stuff others get for free. That would suck.

    i really do like blair, i just dont think he is good enough to replace Adam. jessica needs to shut her face. feedback is being ruined on host at a time. i also think you should include Casey more, he seems to actually know what hes talking about and his imput is worth while, not stupid questions or comments about pets and japan life.

    Does the re- occurring theme of middle eastern enemies in many modern time based fps titles re- enforce stereo types? Maybe if not on a conscious level, possibly a subconscious level? Is it un- healthy, or does it have minimal to no effect on gamers and or society as a whole?

    I really like Blair. The only problem I have with him is that he comes with Jessica Chobot. Working at E.B. games, and looking sort-of, maybe cute doesn't make you a journalist, or even an enthusiast. A person who admits they avoid online games, and thinks Japan Life is the apex of gaming doesn't have an opinion that mass media needs to account for. This is made worse by the fact that she is overly opinionated, and unpleasant to the point that nobody wants to hear her, either. Seriously, the poor judges of beauty who actually like her don't want to hear her either. They want to stare at her. Why is she interrupting the guy who created Halo in a discussion of games to say inane generalizations? Seriously, she ads nothing, and I feel sorry that Blair is bound to have her on because of their personal relationship. One out of every four or five times she discusses online gaming she has to make the conversation about how difficult is is for "the hot gaming queen" to play with others! It's obnoxious and delirious.

    On the loss of Adam Sessler, I love how intelligent he is, and I even like his stuttering awkwardness. However, if you've been paying attention, it's obvious how much he has disconnected from the gaming public over the past couple years. I think he was ready to move on to bigger and better things. Too many rants and ravings about the vocal minority who whine and complain about everything. It was like you couldn't get through an episode of feedback without him saying something about "Quit complaining you gamers!" Some gamers are young, passionate, socially awkward people. Of course they're going to whine from time to time! I still hope to see him back often, though. He's a great person to have reviewing and commenting on gaming.

    Boo hoo, Diablo III won't be on the consoles. What about Uncharted 3 or Gears of War 3? They won't be on the PC, but any G4 staff crying about that? Diablo III is exclusive on the PC, so deal with it. Also, it's simple to hook up your PC on your big screen TV, you just need a HDMI cable and you can also play with a Xbox controller. But seriously, if you are going to playing Diablo III on the PC with a controller, then you are a grade A noob.

    Can MMos work if the console had a touch screen like the Wii U?

    I am a little bothered by the lack of acknowledgment they gave to Final Fantasy XI. The first MMO on consoles to do cross-platform play....ever. SE proved that it was possible and they did it rather well. While the interface for FFXI is terrible for PC is is very good for consoles

    Why would they not even mention it at all considering the focus of MMOs and specifically MMORPGs on PC and consoles. If they don't like the game that is fine but to not mention it and at least admit it had an impact on people's perception of MMO/Console marriage is just not ok with me.

    "Tune in next week for coverage on both Battlefield 3 and Uncharted 3 next week."

    So...that's next week, right?

    So WoW has now added the world of "kungfu panda" to its realms?

    Really, no battlefield 3 review?...

    Posted: October 26, 2011 1:36 PM

    I was glad to see that Blair was a little more subdued this week. A definite improvement over previous appearances, but where was the direction ?.

    Seriously, you managed to spend over 30 mins talking about absolutely nothing. This is the week that Battlefield 3 releases and Uncharted 3 is just around the corner, and yet you chose to spend a large chunk of the show talking about the 3DS.

    I was really looking forward to hearing some honest opinions on Uncharted and BF, but ended up having to take a Valium as a stimulant, just to stake awake !. Boring and pointless.

    Kudos to Blair for the Pink hoodie though. Wearing that has to have been for a bet, right ?.
