    Can’t wait to listen Larry! Hope the new Black Ops info is good!


  • xTye

    Don’t tell us how to get Double XP or anything…make us listen to it all.

  • DMZilla

    Paintball sounds like fun until Laura discusses the bruises. :-)

  • lollip0p

    It’s been a little over a week now and the bruises *finally* faded. Hooray- no more crazy stares from strangers! :)

  • xLoCk 0nx

    Where’s the pic of your viking helmet Laura :D?

  • xLoCk 0nx

    Also, just a thought about the show – why not have a section in the show where we can ask any of the 4 of you a question (via email) :) You could feature 1 question per podcaster in this section.

  • Boe2

    Bulletstorm: Glad you liked it, but try to go for at least 10K score, then you’ll see the true essence of this game :)

  • Spargo CXVII

    Love Your Show Guys!!! Dead Space 2 = Great Game!!! OutDoor Paintball Is The Real Thing….But That’s Just Me.

    Major, what happened to the LIVE activity lists? We haven’t had one posted in a couple of months, at the beginning of November there was a lot of talk about the schedule and format :P.

  • e

    @xLoCk 0nx – Unfortunately, 90% of the questions that get asked can’t be answered without violating NDA – at least, that’s true of the ones that I’m asked. That’d be a really hard segment to do. Thanks for the suggestion, though – and feel free to ask question over Twitter and email.
