    First Post. Sorry I just had to leave my mark, now that I have I can listen to the show in peace :)
    P.S.: I’m listening to this at 4 in the afternoon, so…take that e?

    Loved the show.  Especially the Borderlands 2 interview.  One question.  Why do you guys pic on e so much about his skylanders stuff?

    • Richard A. Galarza

      I’m pretty sure that it’s cuz e hasn’t stopped talking about Skylanders since November. You know..MONTHS ago.

    So… Recycling Gamertags… Any news?

  • http://profiles.google.com/jeverage Quality Jeverage

    Twice in the show you say that I Am Alive is next week’s Arcade game. But all of the documentation I can find says that it releases on March 7th. Which source is mistaken?

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      It is Nexuiz . . i was incorrect. Twice.

        Yeh MN, anything on gamertag recycling?

      • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

        So you have time to answer his question… I don’t know why you’re avoiding the question when you even said you’d “look into it” on one of your previous posts.

        • http://profiles.google.com/jeverage Quality Jeverage

          Being confrontational doesn’t help get the question answered faster.

          • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

            Really? I beg to differ. How about that incident with the Mass Effect 3 DLC recently? I’m getting sick of it now. He said he’ll look into it. But as a typical tool of MS, he doesn’t even bother. They all say things, but never follow through.

            And gamers need to get a back bone and confront these type of people more to get the answers they want. If a bunch of people here all asked the same question and pressured him, then he would have to answer – just like what I said about ME3 DLC

          • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

            I don’t recall seeing a question about the Mass Effect 3 DLC – perhaps I missed it? What was your question?

            Also: Regarding Gamertag recycling I can just say it’s an on going process.

            Anything else?

          • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

            Regarding the ME3 thing I was on about fans on other websites confronting Bioware. And Thank you! 

          • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

            So what is your question? 

          • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

            @MajorNelson:disqus well apart from Gamertag recycling which you have answered. Are you able to say anything in regards to if there’s  upcoming/planned Anime Avatar clothing to be released on xblm?

    how do i watch the video i cant watch it

    After hearing e talk about Minecraft the last few weeks, I bought it and started playing it. I am HOOKED! I can’t wait for it to come out on the XBLA.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XOTBJKUR4IW74YLQH2LHQTE2BU Kairu

      I don’t see the appeal. I bought it (since the only way to get a decent demo is to pirate), played it, and got bored almost instantly. Tried to persevere by playing on a friends server… nope.

    How can i get it? Please give right way.

    Borderland 2’s Gunzerker is one of the funniest names. How that isn’t the title of some Asian cinema action flick is a crime. John Woo is jealous.

  • Tristan R

     So when are you guys gonna announce the successor of the 360 huh?

    • http://twitter.com/AnXboxDude Xbox Dude

      Hopefully never.

      Didn’t you see the movie Real Steel? The banners at the robot fight said Xbox 720. Since the movie takes place in the year 2020, you’ll have to wait until then.

    Looking forward to Borderlands 2. The first Borderlands really understood how to do DLC.

  • Scott Meyers

    Big Borderlands fan, can’t wait to get a hold of the sequel.  Definitely gotta agree with the previous post’s take on DLC as well- it was done proper.  Here’s hoping Borderlands 2 is chock full of the good stuff, then some additional goodness as well.

  • Tony Lee

    Borderlands is so exciting with the new characters and all the new weapons (Well, Hoping they changes at least some of those!) The storyline is interesting as well! So I can`t wait! Ill be getting it but its said that its so far away from now…
