  • SuperDunners

    I take back my Fable 2 DLC remark … leave me alone :P

  • IconicSoulJA

    I like the change in colors for the posts. Pretty cool. I think you guys should coordinate to get a nice variation of Red, Orange, Green, Gold, Silver. :)

  • IconicSoulJA

    Don’t worry Trixie, I hate Peggle too. FALLOUT 3 is better :P.

  • uacostajr52

    @Major: Not to burst your bubble but the pants you’ve been wearing have been available since the second to last avatar clothing release…

  • GU Matt

    Hey major, I was at the big east tournament and was at the 6 OT cuse game me being a big cuse fan. Madison square garden was a rocking place that night. As the crowds were leaving after the game everyone was scraming let’s go orange! It was a great game. A great time had by everyone

    Eat Lead is not a “first person shooter”, Major.

  • elektrixxx

    The best Twitter entries are the redeem codes you send directly @elektrixxx.

    You also forgot the link to download NXE off the site which would be useful to have (searching the site for it brings me to some HD-DVD support link that downloads the Fall 07 update).

  • TeakLocket

    Awesome show cant wait till next week when you guys talk about eat lead

  • Shadowed Ghost

    It’s ok SuperDunner, YOU are still FTW. :)

  • Anonymous

  • Secret Fuller

    LOL piss off europeans lol im in england and that does piss me off lol

  • Warrengonline

    Good show, now I know I’m not alone by your Halo Wars ‘carrying’ a new player. I experienced the same EXACT thing when I played Guild Wars long, long ago. Only diff was I was an experienced and I was only like level 17 0r 19 (not too powerful) and when ever I tried to join the battle with my group I received the “Hey, mage, get and the back and heal us. Do you part and keep us alive.” What a damper; being used for my healing powers and pushed in the back of the group. “You been used, but hopefully not abuse in the gaming world.” Fun show, RE5 and Lost Planet 2.

    The big button controllers will work without the dongle. You have to snyc them though.

  • TheDom83

    Good show. The reasons you stated for halo wars are exactly why I dont like it (and other RTS for that matter). Seems too much like work than fun, and there’s always someone that’s faster than you. It’s a shame, cause I like the Halo series so I probably would enjoy all the cutscenes.

  • Warrengonline

    The Aftershow was so brief! Good show, but the Aftershow was… Hmmm, Peggle makes up for it.

    The skill of Peggle is just like playing pool, pinball, jenga or dodgeball – only less dangerous, no splinters or red sore spots (except for your missed dinner appointments). Hand and eye coordination is a must!

  • DevsterC

    Those marketplace links are USELESS without TITLE tags or some indication of which one is which.

  • Turtle502

    Isn’t Eat Lead 3rd person? It’s on my wish-list but based on the reviews I’ve seen, I’m not so sure about it.

    The RE5 interview was flat. Sounds like everything is moving toward co-op, co-op, co-op. Even AI co-op is annoying for me. I have Fawkes following me in FO3, and I’m ready to shoot him in the head.

  • ImaginedBug

    Say Major, could you perhaps update the MP3 link to actually link to the MP3 file rather than a wikipedia page? Kinda hard to download the show this way :)

  • ImaginedBug

    Whoops… never mind. I clicked the link at the bottom, after the running time and size. Blonde moments are so embarrassing :)

  • Feareon

    Nice, going to watch now.

  • Arsenic13

    He said that there are drivable vehicles in RE5. I beat this game on Wednesday, no there arent. AI drives.


    Great show…

  • ealcott

    In reguards to the Major VS E gamerscore challenge…

    You guys should sign up at

    You can add frieds to your TA profile and then subscribe to a friends summary RSS feed. For example the feed would let E know when major starts a new game or gets a new achievement. Plus it has the added bonus of mixing achievement difficulty into a TA score. Meaning achievements that hardly anyone has are worth more!

    love the show, thansk guys!
