  • Russell Gorall

    Finally, news about a multiplayer demo.

  • Alex

    I Turned it Off After He Said Tiny Tina, TERRIBLE

  • Lee Rayson

    listened to the show i notice you mention my comment about e adding 20 to 25 mins to the show time it made me laugh while walking the dog, i looked crazy laughing to myself. i enjoy the bond interview but for me i don’t like them all but i buy the ones i like

  • JuanCabrera

    Laura was missed! Just not the same show without her anymore.

  • Russell Gorall

    MAJOR, what is Microsoft’s intent with DLC purchased on 360 transferring over to the next Xbox?

    • Lee Rayson

      Even if Major knew do you think he tell you?

      • Russell Gorall

        Sorry, I thought this was his blog.

        • Lee Rayson

          it is a blog but Major wont be informed as much as you think he wont know the answer and if he does he wont tell you when there no console even announced

          • Zack Stein

            Easy, tiger. It was actually a good question that many people are wondering. It never hurts to ask. “Be excellent to each other” means how about we turn around the online bullying and hostility that runs rampant, and actually implement some civility.

          • Lee Rayson

            i wasnt “bullying” fact is when it is text you can’t understand fully what the person means, i wasnt being rude or anything i was just telling him how it is, im a forward person so my comments always come across direct and perhaps rude when they are not

          • Guest

            Don’t mind Lee, he’s just jelly that Major replied to someone else other than him. That’s a JOKE! Like you said you can’t always tell. Not trolling, just joking.

          • Lee Rayson

            uh huh? the bigger joke using a guest account

          • Miller

            Actually, I deleted the comment to repost replying to Zack, but instead it just went to guest… Genius. Get a sense of humour, jeez.

          • Lee Rayson

            An yet it is @ me. you deleted the wrong comment. i use my sense of humour for funny things

          • Miller

            Not really, I was saying to Zack don’t mind [you]. It was directed at him, but had a comment about you in it. I deleted the first comment at you, but it just changed the status to guest, so I edited my other comment to avoid double post as I can’t edit the guest one… go figure, right? Man, use some common sense. And oh boy, you’re one of those who can’t take a joke directed at themselves aren’t you? Damn, lighten up dude.

          • Zack Stein

            Can’t we all just get along?

          • Guest

            I did notice that Lee went back and edited his original response, which was quite snarky. And that’s appreciated. We should all realize that words hurt, and intent is tough to discern when there is no tone behind our online posts. It’s much easier to just be nice.

          • Miller

            Don’t mind Lee, he’s just jelly that Major replied to someone else other than him. Lee, that’s a JOKE! Like you said you can’t always tell. Not trolling, just joking.

        • Major Nelson

          If I can answer a question , I will. Asking about future plans or topics that have not been announced are subjects I am unable to respond to.

          • Russell Gorall

            Thanks for the reply.

          • toohats

            Good question and I hope they do – otherwise why stay on the same platform? It would be a nice perk to keep customers staying with Xbox Live.

          • Zack Stein

            It was a great question.

  • Zack Stein

    It never hurts to leave the show notes behind and just wing-it. Very entertaining opening segment. While I am a “Laura” fan, there was quite a bit of energy and chemistry this week. One question: Will E take donations to NOT talk about Skylanders? Ever? j/k

  • joristhewise

    Fantastic show Major, the Bond box is awesome and I really enjoyed the interview about that. It is indeed the ultimate Bond Box. Hope you are enjoying Epcot and I recommend skipping the Oktoberfest restaurant in Epcot, way too expensive ;-), damn I miss Epcot…

  • Vincent vander Sluis

    Major: You should make e play Avatar. Just to get it on his gamercard :D

    • sibtrag

      Funny. From its reputation, I wonder if you can play Avatar for 30 minutes without getting achievements.

      • Lee Rayson

        I don’t think you can play more than a minute without getting the achievements

    • thevowel

      It’s already on my gamercard. I have 0/1000 gamerscore in it :).

  • Karl Cramer

    If the internet wanted to be a little evil (for a good cause) they could request e play nothing but Kinect games for 24-hours during Extra Life. My feet ache just thinking of playing for that long.

    • Lee Rayson

      I think the internet would give him a heart attack, but if kinect titles it is perhaps Champion Jockey :P

  • Lee Rayson

    No you cant remove your console from the beta, You signed up and it states they will update often….no one ever reads the terms. though it shouldnt be much longer

  • Zack Stein

    This is not being excellent to each other.

    I get it: Lee is a huge fan of the show, and Major Nelson mentioned one of his comments on a podcast. That’s cool. But the enthusiasm is backfiring into negativity, hostility, and really reads as obnoxious. Miller made a pretty harmless joke, and Lee, being a bit sensitive, jumped all over him. Now it’s a war.

    Does anyone really win this? Lee, do you think Larry will read this thread and want to high-five you for your tenacity? Miller, I’d say let Lee dig his own grave and stop replying. Don’t get dragged down.

    So much anger out there. It’s so unnecessary. Please, stop.
