    @Mike &
    @Morgan,

    WTH is that game you 2 are explaining at the start of the show…what? I’m as stun as Draven & Chase…I’m still laughing. That game needs a damn demo…

    @Draven,
    Don’t be mad at the Yankees for their bank account. Those other teams need to stop buying their wives boats & houses & buy some ball players. Agree with Chase for a second.

    @Chase,
    I agreed with everything you were saying about Borderlands…Then you bring up Warhawk!!!!! that was a true WTF moment right there, I laughed my ASS off! We all know Warhawk is garbage.

    Then Morgan says “ok, its not good it isnt great…its a 5″! I laughed all the way home!

    @ the 72min mark…

      The Yankees business philosophy is bad for baseball, most experts in the business agree. They lure better players from smaller markets like Pittsburgh,San Diego, and Oakland because they can’t match the deep pockets of the Yankees organization which keeps those teams from being competitive. For example, Alex Rodriguez and CC Sabathia salaries combined total for 54 million bucks, Oakland’s total player roster salaries only total 49 million bucks. That isn’t right. A strict salary cap for baseball is needed badly.

      Warhawk isn’t garbage at all and neither is Starhawk. I still prefer Warhawk but Starhawk has tons of fun gameplay elements.

    Morgan,
    Morgan is right, Gears set the tone for 3rd person shooters. Chase167, Ghost Recon came before SOCOM.

    Draven71,
    Its good that people put it out there; their GOTY picks, if they have to rip it, so be it.
    My GOTY 2012: Halo 4! If they have 1 QTE, I’ll rip the s*** out of it! Halo 4 is looking so good & offering so much, it must be game of the year for me.

    PSN for PS4:
    Will definitely come with a price tag for online play. They see the amount of money M$ is making. Next gen will cost for online play for M$ & PS4.

    Morgan,
    Ads are essential for Live. I have no problem going right to my game. When I have nothing to do, I’ll look at all the advertisements on the dashboard. My 10 yr old daughter has no problem finding her little garbage games on it. Its good.

    Draven71 & Chase167,
    Co-op in Ratchet & Clank & Borderlands is nothing compared to a real game. Those are cell shaded cartoon games. Uncharted should be co-op through the campaign, if not that, The Last Of Us definitely should be co-op. Read the contract for Bungies new game, if they cant do it on the PS3 they dont have to. However, the new game sequel will appear on the PS4.

      Wow, imagine my shock that your Game of the Year is already Halo 4! None of us saw that coming! I’m totally expecting Halo 4 to be an exceptional title, but lets just say that it absolutely sucks balls. You’ve already stated above that, “It must be game of the year for me”. Why put that much pressure on yourself to expect that Halo 4 must be totally awesome and that you’ll love it? What happens if Assassin’s Creed 3, Far Cry 3 or Medal Of Honor: Warfighter somehow impress you way beyond Halo 4? You’ve now gone through the whole year building up this game for yourself and now your immensely let down instead of just being bummed that this iteration of the game didn’t live up to its name.
      So all I was trying to convey is that we all tend to build up games to be better in our heads prior to the game being released and that by saying that a game is gonna be your game of the year before you’ve even played through the campaign/multiplayer adds to that possible let down factor if the game doesn’t live up to the hype. I think there is a distinct difference between saying that you think these four or five games are gonna be game of the year contenders and {insert game title here} will be my game of the year even before the game is released. Especially when we know so little about these games before they come out.

      Now…The co-op in Ratchet & Clank and Borderlands isn’t any different than any other co-op game. This is just another one of your attempts to justify loving specific co-op titles on the 360 by bashing the PS3′s ability to do the same thing. Your quickly running out of arguments as to why you think the 360 is superior to the PS3. If you think that its cool, you are entitled to your opinion and I can totally respect that. But when it comes down to it, the Co-op in Ratchet & Clank, Borderlands and Borderlands 2 offers the same experience and fun that games like Gears of War 3 offers.They all have their own different mechanics that can suit a wide variety of play styles from gamers. It doesn’t make one game better than the other at all. I love all the games mentioned above for different reasons but when it comes down to it they all do the same thing, they offer a fun experience for 4 people at one time. The art style doesn’t play a major role in being able to create a co-op game either, its all on the talent of the developers to work within the limits of the console. If anything Borderlands and Borderlands 2, since those two titles are multiplatform, proves that a developer can produce a fun and engaging 4 person co-op game that can be played on both consoles.

    Borderlands
    Gt5
    Really good show guys. I watched and listened to quite a few gaming shows/podcasts over the past few weeks and you guys are by far one of if not the best gamimng show out there IMO.
    Anybody see the latest Invisible Walls(on Gametrailers.com)The host was acting like a 12year old kid when any of his guests had an opinion that differed from his own.
    Keep up the good stuff.

    • Draven71 Post author

      Hey B-Ramz! Its great to hear from ya. We really appreciate your kind words, thanks a bunch. I’ve missed the latest Invisible Walls, I’ve been really swamped lately with some other stuff so my backlog of podcasts, tv shows and movies is starting to get bigger. I gotta find some time to catch up. Have ya picked up any of the new releases lately?
