    The game Blair was talking about during one of his earliest game memories was named Bad Dudes on the original NES. I still have a copy of that game in my attic.

    This episode of Feedback is one of the funniest episodes I've ever seen. Congrats to Dana on your marriage.

    Best Feedback ending ever! lmao

    And Donell and Dana should be on the show more often. As a matter of fact, Donell should have his own show called "The Donell Zone" where he's in this kind of 70's looking home, dressed like The Ladies Man from those old SNL skits, and for like 8 min a week, he just reads off and answers the emails he receives. Make it happen.

    Felt like I missed something when they turned off the cameras. Pretty sure heard Blair busting out into laughter after they paned the camera to the ceiling. Man, I would love to work at G4 and just here all the stories and jokes that go on there

    Blair, it was "Bad Dudes" I used to play that on the NES, it was kind'a like "Double Dragon" but with badder dudes. That Donell Zone talk at the end killed me! Wow, that was great. Those stories were great, glad you guys shared them.

    My first gaming experience was at an arcade... a single arcade, in a restaurant, that belonged to my aunt, back in my home country of Honduras. It was "Kung Fu", when you guys started talking about it I remembered it clearly, I was about 6 or so. Blair, your story brought a tear to my eye man.

    Happy Gaming guys and great show!

    Donell you are freaking awesome dude. you should be on the show more awesome....
    Gamers, this is a question for you. With the way God of War 3 ended, do you think that they will introduce a new character and do away with Kratos or bring him back as a playable character or a NPC?

    The ending is hilarious....Holy crap. Dana just took it over the top, which was awesome. Way to go, Dana!

    P.S. Congrats on the wedding!!

    I'm sorry, but I seriously dislike how narrow minded Donell is in gaming. He seems to only be fluent in Japanese niche games. And while that's not a bad thing, I don't think he's right for giving his two cents about any other genre. I just don't enjoy hearing him talk down to the games I love because he's busy playing his Kingdom Hearts and Monster Hunters. Just my opinion. No offense to you Donell, I know you're a great guy.

    Cant stream netflix in HD, takes 2 days for SWTOR to download. Do you only have DSL down south? You guys need Cable.

    I am on Comcast 50/10, it took about 90min to install SWTOR. Netflix streams in HD instantly and never downgrades. For most games its quicker to install it over steam then to go to the store and buy it, come back and install it off the dvds. SWTOR being gigantic being the exception, but MW3 I was up and running 20min after buying it; same for Portal 2.

    I actually found X-Play waaay back when I was still in school and it was still funny by downloading the show off the internet, was especially interested at the E3 coverage around that time before there were Live Streams all around the Internet. Thing is, much like Anime and some other things it wasn't available in my country in Mainland Europe (and still isn't) and it was the only way I was able to watch it :P

    Regarding Steam, I started REALLY getting into it about 2 years ago when they started their Summer Sale, and I was using it before (I think I had Counter Strike: Source, Left4Dead and the Orange Box), but after that I went on to buy about 300 games in the coming two years at what www.steamcalculator.com tells me is around 3500$ xD, I do have 50MBit down / 25MBit up on my Internet though and "getting" the games really isn't much of a problem, it's usually always well below 1 hour even if the game is like 10GB+

    And the (new?) gal has got a point, I'm mainly buying or rather "trusting" Valve because of their past behaviour, like willingly staying away from the stock market because:
    http://www.computerandvideog ames.com/262497/valve-refuses- to-sell-out-on-stock-market/""All [companies that float] end up getting their customers changed," Valve's Erik Johnson told the latest issue of PC Gamer.
    "Any bad decision I ever see out there is because somebody created this different customer that was whoever funds them, and not the consumer of the product."

    Gabe Newell added: "You end up with a totally different set of decisions, and the person who's trying to design the experience is like' Okay, I guess we'll put Christopher Walken in our game."
    They're also known for taking a risk or two and for instance allowing several inexperienced Indie developers full access to one of their most valuable IPs and helping them sell their games off the popularity cultivated by it.
    http://www.next-gen.biz/news /potato-sack-developers-helped -design-portal-2-arg

    They're known for cultivating a modding culture and even often hiring out of it and making commercial high-budget games out of them.

    They're known for supporting, sometimes even without expecting anything in return and in several cases even saving Indie studios with their sales, like in the case of Introversion or Frictional Games or Tripwire.
    That's why I "support" Steam, while I might not exactly have the same stance with similar services like Origin or Impulse and I'm outright boycotting (not buying) any Activision/Blizzard games.

    Also, Dark Souls is totally going to come to PC, looking forwarding to playing it in CoOp :P
    And while it's true that there wasn't an official answer given by Namco Bandai yet, let's not forget that it actually was a Namco employee that suggested it: http://forums.namcobandaigames .eu/showthread.php?t=96407
    "There is always possibilities to have games adapted on PC and the good news is that Dark Souls is not a 100% typical Console game so the adaptation is possible.
    Now to make things happen, let's say the demand has to be properly done. someone to make a successful petition?

    and it's only been a few days since.

    Do you guys even have an HR department? You straddle that line harder than a back-alley Sally in the Donell-Zone. I'm all for it, just be careful.
