    I think the NBA 2K13 interview started earlier than noted. It began at around the 28 minute mark for me, so I wasn’t sure where to skip to. All interviews mentioned ended at the ~1:16:30 mark.

    Is that the wind in the background or something else? at the start of the podcast?

    I really wanted a demo for Need for Speed: Most Wanted! I was disappointed by how the cars handled in The Run but was very pleased by Forza Horizon’s. So just wanted to see how the cars handled!

    How did Medal of Honor Warfighter pass Microsoft certification?

    • Lee Rayson

      An whats wrong with it that so game breaking it shouldn’t of passed Cert

      • Russell Gorall

        Try playing it, especially without the patch. Any smaller game wouldn’t even be let out for release, bigger publishers often get their stuff passed through.

        • Lee Rayson

          Fact is we have the patch so why would i play it without the patch thats stupid.

          • Russell Gorall

            So, might as well not have certification? Just have companies tell you they will patch a broken POS?

            Fine with me, just not sure how the game passed MS and Sony certification.

          • Lee Rayson

            This been happening for a while it nothing new as the other guy said Cert is mainly to make sure it doesn’t interfere with xbox services in any way.

            If it makes you happy apparently it cost 40K for patching a game.
            Try playing fallout 3 or skyrim without patches it makes MoH look perfect
            and the interesting thing about Bethesda games is that they all end up with the same sort of bug and glitches

      Certification is not to make sure it’s not a laggy game, or a game with balance issues and such.. certification is to make sure it doesn’t break your xbox, corrupt your profile, affect other games saves and affect live server performance and such.

      People are free to produce all the bad games they wish, so long as it doesn’t mess with the rest.

      • Russell Gorall

        If the game is broken without the patch, that is what certification is also for. No problem with it being a piss poor game. If Microsoft or Sony put out a broken game on their console, that is a bad business model and something consumers would notice. This is part of certification.

        That is another part of what certification is for, this isn’t Gaming School.
