    Heh, Larry, did you forget to edit around 1:13:00, right after Name the Game?

    We hear Laura looking around in her e-mail and then you counting down “3, 2, 1″ before she comes back with the answer. Had a bit of a chuckle at that ;)

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

      A little behind the scenes look at how we produce the show :)

      • Russell Gorall

        Why not just do it live for the ten people who listen to it?

        • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

          thas like asking you to stop trolling, its impossible!!!

          • Roy

            Yeah Major is just lazy in removing them. I would have terminated him a LOOOONG time ago.

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

            I check comments about once a day…but the Disqus spam filter does a pretty good job since they’ve been tweaking it recently.

          • BigBernard

            Or asking you to stop brown nosing.

          • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

            Or you trolling comments days old?

          • BigBernard

            Or you pretending you’re a ginger American.

          • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

            Are you stupid?

            I even mentioned it in another comment that I picked up the lingo from my half American girlfriend not that its any business of yours of course.

            go back to N4G

          • BigBernard

            “Half American” imaginary girlfriend now? Good luck with that Gingerbollocks.

          • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

            get a grip, get new material, get out of typical stereo types, it just shows how childish you are

          • BigBernard

            Did you pick up that from your fake half-American girlfriend (ie. the palm of your hand) too?

        • http://twitter.com/boe2BE Boe2

          Because you’d be complaining that they need to properly edit their podcasts before releasing it.

          • Russell Gorall

            Along with everyone except five people who work for MS, I have never listened to a second of these.

          • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

            “along with everyone” your the only person complaining you Mofo Troll

    Good show, E wasn’t there a few years or so in a row were games weren’t releasing that much or even at all? or was just a year that it happened? Because now since the release of portal 2 it seems crowed almost any time of the year with games.

    I miss Stepto

    As I said above, the Disqus engine catches a lot of them.

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

    I have a call with the Disqus team later this week, and I’ll address that with them.

    Have you guys only done 3 hangouts, or is there one missing from your site?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=785779443 Zack Stein

    Ditto. Absolutely agree. Thanks for being another to mention this. We all need to speak up.

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

      Be sure to use the voting tool on each post – that helps as well.

    Really want to know why Lollipop is not on your follow list on twitter Major.

  • http://twitter.com/StrikeSudden StrikeSudden

    Probably not good scifi for e but really want a longer discussion on defiance. Also hope someday someone does a survey on how many nerds really hate aliens. Rarely meet anyone that likes it that much.

    What about posting that notification sound from Bond?

    • http://twitter.com/ADtwentytwo Andrew Dillon

      This. I mean, it’s nice and all to have my xbox achievement sound go off when I get a text on my iPhone – albeit a tad bit confusing when I’m actually playing a game – but I really dug that text message sound from Skyfall (?).

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

        Actually the text message sound I played was from Casino Royale.

    Thanks, guys! What a great mention of puzzlehunts and The Maze of Games! I really appreciate it. We will do our best to make sure Laura is really happy with it.

    One correction: The Maze of Games is not “massively overfunded.” We have plenty of room for more funding!
