Podcast By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • D3NNIS60

    It’s just Modern Warfare 2, it’s not a big deal, but, you know…

  • threeleggedcow

    Fix the guide

  • What the Geek

    get your cables at Great prices, good cables. They ship out of CA via priority mail – you should have your cables in a day or two.

    Very intrigued by your E3 tease – what sort of epic announcement is MS dropping??


    Good show Major!I actually got my first xbox 360 at one of the small post exchanges at Camp Victory complex area about 3 or 4 years ago.I was living in some of the little trailer pods at Camp Slayer,which is a very nice area,but was very close to a lot of fighting when I was there.Probably one of the most scenic and photogenic peaceful- looking place at the complex would be Camp Slayer area(how ironic).Also,there is wireless internet access all over that complex,there was when I was there.There is a nice pool in that area as well,by the multi-national force area of the complex.Being able to play the Xbox over there was a real treat and it’s great that you are going.There is a nice exercise room,other than that just the experience alone will be enough to make e jealous.

  • TaygetaVendetta

    Are we getting XBLA announcements as usual this coming week, on the show/Monday? Or is something special planned for E3?

  • Vasilii Zaytsev

    I hope the legendary E3 announcement is a working guide

  • M Shadle

    Why are they dropping the Cod title?


    @M Shadle: Tryark is keeping the CoD title.
    and i can’t wait I’m going to try to make it to the twitt up.

  • clarky456

    Major, good luck and stay safe in Iraq.

  • peachy001

    Man, I’m just listening to last weeks (got real behind on my podcasts). Now I’m so hyped at listening to the new one. Bet the E3 info is real sketchy, damn, what happened to the days when Microsoft struggled to stop rumours leaking out? Not heard much at all, aside from Forza3. Well good luck, I’ll be tuning in all the time I am not at work. I hope you announce some damn Elite Jaspers (in black please!), but then that wouldn’t be much of an announcement really for the majority of existing Xboxers. I have been waiting way too long, and have put in some major miles of walking around game stores. On real good terms with a number of staff now though.

  • Arsenic13

    e looks like Jason Statham :D

  • Major Nelson

    I tweaked the audio levels on this one to be much ‘hotter’ as we say in audio. Let me know what you think of it.

  • Monster Warfare

    Nice, can’t wait to listen. MW2! And stop with the “fix the guide” comments.

    i would love MARVEL VS CAPCOM 2 to come out on XBLA during E3

  • Warrengonline

    I’m a bit late (currently listening to the show during my lunch), Tekken 6 hopefully has a Spectate Mode and a 6+ Player Lobby. People who have a bad connection and drop out should be ‘displayed’, kind of like SFIV has, similar to that. I love interest in Tekken after Tekken 3, my cousin is a huge fan, so I still play it, though no where as near as good as SF or DOA. PLEASE have Baek, I need my Hunting Hawk. Nice interview, love how Dev is keeping tight lips on other features – I hope they learned from mistakes from Soul Calibur IV (online play mainly). – Thanks!

    We can only wish, then explode with excitement if it does. I hope it handles the combos good “Photonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Canonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!”. Are we going to fight again (SFIV)?

  • AlexKokonas

    Great show major and E, although something seems a little bit fishy here. I find it very interesting that E has signed up for a twitter account and then if i recall him saying on the podcast that he is going to need one for E3! I have a very good feeling that you guys are going to announce facebook and twitter intregration with xbox live. I have noticed that you 2 have been talking about twitter nonstop and why else would E get an account? I mean he’s pretty much been against it for a while now. So thats my prediction what do you guys think?

  • Warrengonline

    oy. But then no ‘gamertag only’ and real names. I double the dare on that.

  • Since 1981

    The levels seemed a little too hot to me during Major’s and e’s segments. My only complaint has been with the interviews; the first interview last week was way too quiet, for example. This week the interviews sounded fine though.

  • Max Limitz

    The twitter name for e is val ( as mentioned in the show #320?
