    I don't understand why they don't put this on after x-play or like at 10. Believe you me, I love the 4 straight hours of COPS or the Bomb Squad from 9 to 1, but I think this could pick up some ground if it hit tv. I wouldn't want them to change anything though. G4 needs a solid show were they just talk game journalism.

    How do you ask questions on feedback. I was wondering about our thoughts if Modern Warfare 4 will come out and will it bring something new to the table to compete with the Battlefield series?

    "I hate moving as much as, y'know, the next gamer..." Am I the only one who caught that nugget?!

    Blair does a good job as host of Feedback and I do miss Adam being on the show. Nikole looks cute as always on this show.

    I don't get the Morgan Webb hate. You know one reason to hate little kids? They take everything personally.

    I know this will get the thumbs down and plenty of them but, I hate all you kids. You ruin every video game experience I try to have.

    I can't even go on X-Box Live anymore outside a party lest I have to suffer one stupid thing you say.

    Love ya Morgan. Keep representing the adult gamer.

    in the beginning of the show you made it seem like the survived the apocalypse, yet the so called apocalypse didn't happen last year dummies. it supposedly happens this year. December 21, 2012. i hope it does and takes morgan webb first. she hate kids in games wow. she must really hate the Zelda franchise. Little Big Planet basically are kids you play with. so she must really hate that franchise too. is it too much to ask not to have her on the show. i would rather have Princess Leah on the show every week if it means not look at morgan webb. i don't even watch xplay because she an idiot and she is the host.

    First of all, I'm excited for the new Max Payne too. I thought the first Max Payne was so-so but I loved the second game. Really looking forward to it on a current gen console.

    Diablo III, Bioshock, and any other contender this year could be flawless gems of absolute perfection and I'm still picking Mass Effect 3 for game of the year without having played a second of it.

    Been waiting 2 years for this one. It would have to be the biggest turd ever laid to disappoint me. And we all know that isn't happening. And I just now remembered I don't have a save at the end of Mass effect 2 with everyone alive. I have to get on that. Soon.

    And it was cool hearing TJ's story. You never know how you're gonna get that first big job. That must have been surprising.

    Another great episode folks.

    Yay more Nintendo bashing!

    Seriously, this is getting old are you guys really that spiteful of Nintendo? I don't get how Nintendo can openly state that you don't have to use everything included in their system, and somehow that gets processed as "developers have to use everything included in their [Nintendo's] system".

    No, you don't have to use the motion control of the Wii-U, or the gyroscope, or the split screen, you can simply use the face buttons, triggers, and analogue sticks, just like Microsoft and Sony. It's the same thing with the 3D on the 3DS they have that little slider there so when you feel like using it you can turn it on.

    Honestly, when did giving a consumer choices become such a bad thing? Has society really degraded this much, or am I missing something?

    The Last of Us is NOT a zombie game. if it is, explain to me how that girl can flip over a dead HUMAN on his belly to get supplies off of him. wow how do you people even have jobs if you can't see something so obvious.

    I agree with this TJ fellow about Max Payne being one the 2012 games to be excited about. The animation system looks impressive. It seems like a more ambitious attempt at what Naughty Dog tried to do in Uncharted 3, with the response to the characters surroundings. It didn't entirely work out with Drake bracing himself on invisible walls half the time. Max Payne seems to genuinely fit in his environment from what you can see in their trailers. My only concern is that the movement controls will feel too much like Red Dead, which is to say, clunky and unresponsive. That ultimately left me disappointed with the competitive multiplayer. If the controls are as fluid and responsive as I can only hope. Rockstar is going to be a step ahead and leave most people even more giddy with anticipation for whatever gold they offer next.

    Maybe I'm wrong but Morgan Webb seem like a big hater of everything. Please someone tell me why they even have her on. If you like game and have to listen to her all day you wouldn't want to ever play again because her negativity is so draining.

    Nice to be able to catch Feedback in full after a good bit. Have been so busy as of lately to remember. X3

    Anyways, this year is definitely going to be a "wait and see" situation for me, mainly with the fact that a few games already look good, but not quite at the "100% convinced" mark for me. Only ones I'd say that are pretty close to that point are Soul Calibur V, Mass Effect 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken. Max Payne 3, I can't play that one yet since I still haven't played 2. Not to mention....not sure if I can take anymore "nightmare levels" from the first one....still gives me the creeps.

    Well, despite my ramblings, each year in gaming, we keep seeing more and more improvements in some shape or form, so for whatever comes out, it's going to be worth it.

    Morgan's cynical nature reminds me of Morrigan from Dragon Age. :)
