  • BJWanlund

    Hey Major, you forgot to mention The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition as part of Summer of Arcade!!


  • KerrazY

    Hey Major,
    Haven’t heard the show yet, just passing by to congratulate the US team on the 2nd place on the Confederations Cup.
    Not bad for a team which has no tradition in football. Gave us Brazilians a tough time. Hope it helps football to develop more in your country.

  • MajorHellraiser

    Major: Head’s Up – You’ve got two show #323’s now (i.e., this one and the E3 2009 show).

  • Arsenic13


    Wow that was majorly off topic.

  • Shonk

    Can you pass this on to the right person plz major

    The drm transfer tool 1 year rollover isnt working
    I have been sitting on a new elite for 2 months waiting for my 1 year
    and for the last 2 days it keeps saying
    Your next opportunity to use this tool is: 6/26/2009 8:17:43 PM UTC.

    its the 29th

  • yolarrydabomb

    Listening now…Sounds very good!

  • yolarrydabomb

    @Shonk call them!

  • Shonk

    It should auto rollover so i can transfer my drm
    there should be no need to call them

  • Shonk

    Oh and have you tried speaking to the indian call center that europe gets
    its like talking to people from space they have no idea what you are talking about
    im not even going there again it took over 40 calls over 4 months last time to get my drm fixed

    and it was only fixed then because major nelson got someone to phone me from the usa

  • Shonk

    Some people have already tried the support robots
    as stated earlier they havnt got a clue


  • Drunk Ste

    Great Knothole Island goes on sale….two weeks after I decided to buy it.

  • Shonk

    Oh and the fix last time was to credit 18000 ms points to my boy’s account
    so i could pair them again

    I dont think they would like crediting 109000 ms points to my account this time

  • Vasilii Zaytsev

    Shonk, STFU and stop flooding the comments with your problems. Send him and email, you retard

  • Vasilii Zaytsev


  • Shonk

    I may have got a bit carried away with posting

    but where do you get off gobbing off at me

    I have had a drm nightmare in the past
    so im a bit proactive with it

    If it wasnt for people like me the drm tool wouldnt even exist

    How many e-mail’s a day do you think major nelson gets
    I dont fancy my chances of him reading them all

  • Anonymous

    majors on fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrre

    I’m assuming you lot have heard kasabian-fire

    they gotta play that while its happening

  • Anonymous

    Worms 2 this wednesday, CANNOT WAIT!

  • Defy1ng Grav1ty

    @Twilight Now: Thanks. Also read that on Kotaku.

    @Viral Cyrix: LoL! I haven’t memorized the avatar clothing line-up. Never got much into that, but my daughter likes to change the avatar.

  • Fuze01

    Ugh, I keep getting the (-69) error when I’m trying to sync it in itunes :/

  • DMZilla

    Nice to hear Aaron Greenberg talk about E3. We had a lot of fun working backstage during the keynote. Stressful, but fun. :-)



  • PetriesLastWord

    Just thought you’d want to know, this episode is labeled wrong on the blog. I keep them all archived since I’m a power-nerd, and it threw me off to have 2 different episode 323s.

  • Warrengonline

    Good show. Too. No word on the Beta Avatar anything? All hush-hush. I know its (whatever it is is) going to be cool.

  • DMack CA

    No name the game this week?

  • davidkenobi

    To E => i was also a fan of Transformers but i was really disappointed by this one. It’s almost a teenage movie without screenplay but with so much SFX and impressive technology. Just an ILM demo. I ‘ll wait the next shows to hear what you think about !

    To Major and E => i was thinking there will be a limited alan wake faceplate this week, no ?

    Thanks for the interviews. Fun and instructive.

  • zxcoolbird

    Man now i can’t listen to the show. Sigh
