  1. I don't suppose anyone around here happens to have the old Shack Cast episodes sitting around. They're definitely not hosted on shacknews anymore, and no hero has stuck them on the internet archive. It would be a real shame if they were actually lost forever.
  2. Licenses That Demand A Game

    I would love it if DICE dropped their Star Wars Battlefront game in favor of making a similar game based on GI Joe. Ever since BF 1942 came out I have wanted to be able to use all of those silly vehicles (Trubble Bubbles!!) in a similar game.
  3. GeoGuessr

    I've played this game twice so far, and both times it has dropped me in situations where you can't move the camera and explore the environment. First I was in some nondescript field that turned out to be somewhere in Greece (I went with Belarus), and just now I was on the deck of a cruise ship called Serenity. Weird.
  4. SimCity: The City Simulator

    I can't be the only one who assumes there will be some sort of a single player big city expansion somewhere down the line, right? It just seems obvious that there is a demand for it, and people will surely pay cash money for it.
  5. Gaming Setups

    I briefly thought your Wii nunchuck was horrible and filthy before realizing that it was juts the gold one.
  6. Idle Thumbs 91: The Clapper

    Shawn Elliott on Idle Thumbs is truly a dream come true. I have the worst dreams, by the way.
  7. VG Mutha Fuckin As (Holy crapping cow)

    Hate to break it to you vimes, but the awards are not voted on by the fans. Its a handful of journalists who do the voting. Don't get too high on how worldly gamers are.
  8. VG Mutha Fuckin As (Holy crapping cow)

    Congrats dudes.
  9. Xbox Gold Accounts

    Its pretty easy to find cards for $35 on amazon. When they go on sale they tend to stay on sale for a good long while, so there's no need to stay extremely vigilant. As far as why I pay for live, its really just because its my best solution for watching Hulu, Netflix and whatnot and its works out to three bucks a month.
  10. Telltale Expanding in 2013

    haha. They locked it.
  11. First PC in 9 years; what should I play?

    I love your Alistair Cookie avatar Fausto. Those sketches are great. I have no PC gaming advice. I haven't had a decent PC in years.
  12. Best Quote? (and Best Ladders?)

    Wow. It never occurred to me that there are no ladders in Bethesda's games. My mind is blown. I understand that perhaps all the world's ladders might have been destroyed by nuclear war, but surely the people of Skyrim must have developed ladder technology by now.
  13. Confessions of an Internet Eater

    I am currently sitting here reading this stupid forum rather than going out and meeting up with friends.
  14. Was Patrick ever properly introduced? When I finished listening to this it occurred to me that aside from saying his name, no one explained who the hell he is. I'm a Giant Bomb fan, so I'm very familiar with him, but I could certainly imagine an Idle Thumbs listener who isn't familiar with the guy. On an unrelated note, my left shift key has suddenly started making tildes instead of Capitalizing things. This is pretty upsetting.
  15. Putting Items in Characters' Butts: Why?

    I dunno. I keep all my most important stuff in my butt.
  16. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who had no idea what the hell Maters were.
  17. Misspent Youth

    I've played a pretty good deal of FTL, but it took until about an hour ago to realize that I could sell things at the store. I managed to never notice the sell tab. Boy do I feel like a dunce.
  18. Misspent Youth

    That's so adorable.
  19. Quitter's Club: Don't be ashamed to quit the game.

    Yeah, absolutely. I played a few hours of Crysis 2 and felt like I was just far too delicate. They give you this suit with special powers, but they're all so weak that you can't really play the game any differently than you would any other shooter where you'll die relatively quickly. Perhaps it would have benefited from one of those usually annoying scenarios where they start you out with a fully powered suit so you have an idea what you're working towards, then just unceremoniously strip you of it.
  20. Mark of the Ninja

    I haven't played Mark of the Ninja yet, since I'm trying to stop buying way, way more games than I have the time or drive to play. However, I did want to say that at this point the game is featured pretty prominently on the dashboard (its the first thing you see!) or at least it is on the dashboard beta. I would like to think that Microsoft decided to promote it in response to a million podcasts and internet people complaining that the game was buried in their shitty UI, but I guess they probably just realized that they would like to make some money on this game that they published.
  21. Recently completed video games

    I didn't realize that people always reacted that way when poisoned in AC2. I thought that I had just discovered some weird bug once during my playthrough. Watching some noble I was specifically told not to kill swing a battle axe at a crowd of civilians was my favorite part of the game.
  22. Quitter's Club: Don't be ashamed to quit the game.

    I'm fairly sure I don't finish a good majority of the games I buy. These days I don't have a ton of time to spend playing games, but there is so much out there that I would like to try. I figure I would rather spend a few hours with lots of games so I can at least get an idea of what they're about than playing a few games to completion. Just looking at a pile of games on my bedroom floor, I see Crysis 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Transformers WFC, Dragon Age Origins, Sin & Punishment 2, Mirror's Edge, Skyrim, Deus Ex: HR, Driver San Fransisco and of course Jerry Rice's Dog Football. Perhaps I'll go back to half of these, but if I don't, I'm perfectly comfortable with my experience with them.
  23. Neptune's Bountiful Pride 6!

    I would be into this.
  24. Xbox 720

    So Sony bought Gaikai today. I still think Cloud gaming is too impractical for most people for this to be a huge deal.
  25. Xbox 720

    Having been an Onlive subscriber for a few months earlier this year I don't see how that technology could be ready to be folded into one of the consoles. It usually works quite well, but at least in the US, bandwidth caps are becoming more and more common. I'm a Comcast subscriber, and at the end of the month where I used Onlive most heavily I came within a few gigs of hitting my 250 gig cap. I certainly didn't download a bunch of huge files, and my normal video streaming wasn't any more heavy than normal, so that could only be attributed to Onlive. Point being, lots of cable internet subscribers would probably find themselves in some hot water with their ISPs when they spend 25 hours in a month playing cloud based games on their console. Not to mention the fact that it just doesn't work all that well during peak hours.
