    Donnell Tucker in Feedback? Uh oh, I haven't seen this episode yet, but I predict some dark skin jokes from Blair.

    Anyway, I can't download the audio version of Feedback. Tried on two computers and two web browsers, so I don't think it's me. Please fix this.

    DMC looks awesome gameplay and graphics wise.
    I can overlook the main characters style.

    i'm sorry feedback but the the DMC thing u guys need to search more into it, it's not about the hair, ninja theory insulted DMC fans and made fun of them, the DMC series did work well the reason they are rebooting it is because the actual person who made it left and capcom is just destroying the character just like what they are doing with megaman there more to it then just hair guys

    There's only one thing that can make Donell's ending messages better...smooth R&B back up vocals!

    Great episode again guys, nice to see Dana back, congratulations on your recent nuptials. Blair you did well once again, you were very funny and Nikole, well sweety, you keep growing on me. Like a big fungus, ok that was weird, but I like you more every time I see you on the show, its like you've finally come out of your shell, and you have delighted us with some extremely funny and cute banter.

    However, Donell, I am not a big fan buddy. Although the weird moment at the end was hilarious when Dana jumped in to play wing man, this was not one of your better episodes my man. I would love to see a team of Blair and the Sess, on feedback, along with Nikole and Leah Jackson or Morgan Webb, now that would be a good panel.

    actually world of warcraft has this "play while you download" in effect already with its patches. you only wait about 5 mins for core game data to download then you can play while the rest of the patch is still downloading. they do tell you that gameplay may not be up to par, but then it comes down to wether you feel like waiting. at this point its just a matter of other game companies getting the technology.

    in terms of dante not having his silver hair, i can understand why people would be upset. i mean, imagine if Link was a ginger, or if Mario wore blue shirts. all kinds of fanboys would rage across the internet. and they would be way worse about it. (especially the zelda fans)

    Streaming a game as you install it doesn't make any sense.
    Playing off a cloud as assets are being downloaded and installed isn't something that is possible.

    Namco Bandi is actually aware of the petition. The devs were talking about it on their forums. Doesn't mean it's going to happen but "They are ignoring it" is a bit strong.

    Porting to the PC is a lot more economical. Dark Souls is the exact kind of game that appeals to the hardcore PC gamer demographic. Again, making a new game doesn't make a lot of sense right now.

    On the topic of piracy: It's a bit more than that.

    Anti-piracy advocates claim that each pirated unit is a lost sale. Piracy advocates claim that it's only a small fraction of pirated units. The problem is that they're technically both wrong.

    There are many examples (Google: "Monty Python 23000" and "Comic book pirated on 4chan" for two examples) where content has been pirated or otherwise accessed for free and that sales rose *as a result* of the piracy.

    On the other hand, since the introduction of Ubisoft's anti-piracy methods, their PC sales have shrunk 90% with no spike in the other platforms. They just *lost the sales*.

    One problem is that, unlike other industries such as food, you do not necessarily need to consume content, especially new content, *at all*. Also, having purchased a video game or movie does not mean that you will not purchase another... or another after that... etc. In the consumables market like food or ink -- which "art" industries are often modelled after -- you can only eat or print so much.

    So it is not necessarily the question: "Whether the 9-year-old would go out and buy the movie ticket"... the question could be whether someone would have purchased some content had that piracy not existed.

    While ideally each of your customers would have purchased the content from you -- a pirated unit is still better that being outright ignored. The question you must consider is: "How much revenue would I have made with piracy? How much revenue would I have made without it?" Only after you consider that question should you start considering the corollary problems.

    And yes I am a content creator who has been plagiarized a few times in the past... so the annoying "you don't know what it's like" argument can just stay at the door. Also, "being upset at someone ripping off your work" -- means you are not thinking about how much revenue you are receiving... just the bad feelings you have.

    if it only bothers you and no one else cares, does it really matter?

    Quit wearing your headsets on backwards...(the cord should be on the left side of the body) Sorry, idk why but it just bothers me.
