    Blair did much better with hosting this week, and does give me hope for the show "post-Adam", and the other two guests were great as well. JP, however...I had a problem with. He just strikes me as a COD-fanboy, and doesn't seem to comprehend why it might not be fun to be shut down by 12-year-olds every time you turn on a game. Not only that, but no one mentioned how extremely SIMILAR MW3 is to MW2 (and by similar I mean almost the exact same game). That, along with the fact that the G4.com homepage opened to MW3 ads? I don't want to think it, but it does feel like there was a sense of bias on the G4 staff towards the game.
    And guys, the "Thunderdik" joke really stopped being funny after the second time.

    Just want to say I miss Adam hosting. Wish they would bring him back. The conversation just doesn't seem to be the same with out him.

    Modern Warfare 3 only got a 5/5 because Activision paid for a good review. Game reviews have a heavy impact on sales these days. It makes perfect sense if you think about it.

    Of course, reasons like this are why I went with Battlefield 3 and Skyrim. I'll just buy whatever CoD Activision decides to dump out in 2012 or 2013.

    G4 is getting a lot of $%!* thrown their way over their reviews. I dont think it would be a huge problem with some negative reviews if you were consistent in your judgement. Zelda gets a knock for using some old items and gets a 4/5, yet MW3 uses a majority of the same weapons and mechanics and it gets a 5/5? Just confusing. And I dont even want to bring up the Uncharted 3 review in fear that I might have another rage blackout.

    Hey my name is Keneth and ill explain why we are a bit messed up for the change of PSN.

    I live on Honduras Latin America.....1 dolar for me are Lps19.16 (Lempiras) our national currency. Adding a 20 dolar PSN card is a lot of money men, for us. So gamers on my country use to buy a 50 dolar psn card in groups (3 or 2 people)........each one pays 16 dolars each, open a new psn user (Example: PublicGames123) add the cash, buy the game and share.........one download per user, not 4 downloads on 4 diferent PS3 from the same owner (thats dum) and finally ask other people if they want the game and sell the access to the account to them. This is what we used to do. Now we are going to split the 50 bucs between just two people.

    Do you think that Skyrim took out content from the main game to put in DLC?

    The issue with download limitation is not about wanting it on multiple systems. The issue is that I purchased this digital content and I am being limited AGAIN as to how I use it. So now we have online passes, micro-transactions, and limited downloads? The justification I am hearing from the G4 panel was that "it's fine because it doesn't affect me, and they need to support their IPs more and it's free/expensive" The first point is ridiculous because suddenly when it isn't your problem you don't care and its dismissed.

    The second is easy to argue with the universal example of Steam. Playing online via Steam is free, saving on the cloud for Steam is free is supported, since I purchased the content I have unlimited downloads as long as I am on my account. They could easily do that with PSN because they already do it with PS+, if I am not on my account I can't access the content or if my subscription expires. If they want to support their IPs more than you do it by making them more visible and giving the developers what they need to make a good game. If I bought the game once I have done my part in supporting the developer, forcing me to buy it again for an arbitrary limit is wrong. The dismissive "it's only 5 dollars" is not a valid argument as you can buy many full retail copies of games on PSN now. The last few episodes I am baffled at the lack of knowledge of people IN the industry, DCUO being the only MMO on consoles, Sony not having cloud compatibility?

    I don't care if they limit content to my PSN account, you must be logged in to that account to play it, like Steam. But not letting me download this content rather literally "just because" is unjustifiable.

    I was asked one of the same questions, MW3 or BF3?... I said yes.

    They are two different games, the closest thing I could compare it to, which is better a brunette or a redhead? I would have me some of both. Both games have a very different dynamic that I can't compare one to the other, I have both games and yes I play both equally. There both fun in they're own wright. It's the same as Forza4 and GT5 or GTA4 and SR2, both geat games but very different from one another. I think it all comes down to how you want to play, so you wanna be rambo, fantastic, just play HardCoreFreeForAll in cod, you're in a team based match with the right team players, do a match in BF3.

    It all comes down to you, both are good, you just have to decide what you want out of the game and get the one that will fulfill your needs.

    Donell Tucker definitely hit it all on the mark. Especially, with MW's multiplayer vs BF3's. I personally prefer the realism of ARMA II and the tactical teamwork required in multiplayer, but the BF series is the next best thing. MW multiplayer is too run and gun, king of the hill mentality for me. I really enjoyed watching this episode of feedback.

    the one person that i can agree with is Donell they need more people like u reviewing the games. im sick of g4 constantly saying "call of duty has the best graphics and gameplay that is over the top and the balancing is amazing and and... its amazing!!!!" then they turn around and say other games are coming out being the same game over and over.. not call of duty though right?

    For the downloading a game multiple times. It would be nice to be able to download a game like Gran Turismo 5 onto 3 PS3's so you can do multiscreen playing without having to pay for the game 3 times. I have the same issue with the xbox. You can move games from one xbox to another but it can only be running on 1 xbox that is connected to xbox live. So to do the multi screen with Forza Motorsport you have to load it on each xbox, disconnect it them from live then connect them on non internet connected router.

    I don't really mind the PSN update that much, I am still going to share games with friends to save money, now I am just going to do it one at a time

    "I think PS3 will eventually move toward cloud save"...

    Lol. Cloud saves were on PS3 before any console. It just goes to show you how often the Xplay staff fires up their PS3s...if they actually own one.

    I hope you all read this.

    I got a PS3 on launch day, the first thing I did was install a 500GB HDD, which at the time were very expensive and hard to find. A few months ago my console got the YLOD. I had everything I'd ever bought from the PSN on that hard drive. When I sent it in to Sony they "had" to wipe my drive and give me a refurbished unit. This meant re-downloading everything I'd bought on the PSN. And I did. I went through my entire download history and got everything I had before the YLOD.

    The day Uncharted 3 came out my PS3 got the YLOD again. I sent it in to Sony and asked them if they please try to save the information on my HDD this time. Again they told me they couldn't and the drive must be wiped.

    With the new 2 download limit on the PSN I've just lost hundreds of dollars worth of games and DLC. The only way I can play those things I've lost is to buy them again. This is bull. And it would be such a non-issue if Sony would let you transfer HDD's between consoles, but they don't. Even backing up data onto an external drive won't save copy protected data. And it's an incredibly time intensive process. Even worse and more convoluted is the console transfer feature. At least it copies all data.

    So I feel like Sony has robbed me of all those games and DLC packs I paid for. Some of which I had never even played.

    In any case, the main criticism with MW3 has nothing to do with BF3. It has to do with BF3 like it has to do with Uncharted 3 and the countless other games on G4 that get marked down for being too similar to the previous game in their franchise. Then people come along and see that, that same criticism is not ever applied to COD. COD is probably more guilty of it than most. They see bias and feel that this media site is beind dishonest to them.

    I wonder why Blair didn't think there was anything wrong with the UFC Undisputed franchise trying to bribe him.
