    This is nice and long. It was also posted at 3:43pm PST. Epic.

  • roozbeh, again

    Awesome, I loved how cowardly he is in the game.

  • Dylan

    I love Lazlow. I’m disappointed his personal segment in GTA V is only 20 or so minutes long. Usually they’re 45 minutes or longer.

    Still, all of the radio talk shows are comedy gold. Especially Chakra Attack, Fernando Show (especially to those who have listened to Fernando in the other games), and Beyond Insemination.

      I wished I could have gone 2 hours with Lazlow, but he is a busy man and I had to let him go. Hopefully I can have him back in the future.

  • Death Dealer

    Hi Major, you have the interviews mixed up, the DR Albright interview is from 25:47 until 39:35 and Lazlow is from 39:35 to 1:06:08. Great interviews!

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

      Yup, I caught that and fixed it.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    i can’t believe you guys acted like that the free gwg game is something awesome. you said it with almost the same enthusiasm as when you were talking about gtaV. don’t forget, that game, and the program as a whole, is a joke in the xbox community. i say that with all respect. I just expect better from the best gaming company on the planet.

    • Guest

      The only joke here are trolls like you b*tching about something that is free. You’re worse than the $0N¥ paupers.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        thank you guest and the other 6 of you no name people.

    • roozbeh, again

      Wait you think GTA V is a joke or halo 3?

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        lol gtaV rules. halo 3 was good years ago. no i am talking about the game that is free right now. i like when you answer because i know you are reasonable.

        • roozbeh, again

          Oh you mean might and magic.
          I agree with you on that game. It is terrible and incredibly cheap even from Microsoft. They can and should do better than that.
          Yeah you’re not troll, I can see you’re just asking for better games.

    • MaximMillion

      I don’t think you are saying it with’ all respect.’ Derogatorily referring to something as a joke isn’t respectful.
      That said, GWG isn’t great. Hopefully it improves… There have been some good games included so far (AC2, Crackdown, Halo 3, Rainbow 6) but most of the free games aren’t good games.
      But hey, it’s free (with Gold), so I’m not complaining. On the flip side, PS+’s free (rental) games is definitely a lot better, but are they possibly undermining their own services by doing so?

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        fine, thats your right to not complain. but it is also my right to do so. i said with all respect because i wanted the program to be awesome.

    • Jessica-Star Hussiere

      I don’t think you’re trolling, but remember that a lot of people like different kinds of games. My favorite games from the Games for Gold thing so far have been Defense Grid and Might & Magic. Two reasons…I’m not that down with shooters

  • Xhawk27

    Halo 3 is better than any rent game you have on the PS3 right now.

    • Dylan

      Um no. *sigh* You asked for this. You can pick up Halo 3 for 5-10 dollars. And it’s from 2007. The value isn’t even really debatable.

      Some of PS+ (America)
      Uncharted 3 (2011) 20 dollars
      Xcom (2012) 25 dollars
      Kingdoms of Amalur (2011) 20 dollars
      Saints Row 3 (2011) 20 dollars, maybe less
      Bit Trip Runner 2 (2013) 10 dollars

      Anyway, Halo 3 was decent overall, though weaker than some of the other entries in the series. Not even close to the value of the PS+ games.

      If it was Halo Reach, it would be more debatable (value, not quality).
      I have both Gold and PS+ (though I’ve had Gold for 5 more years). I haven’t downloaded one G4G game yet.

    • roozbeh, again

      Hmm, I would really want to agree to that but I would be doing BF3 injustice

      I love Halo 3, but I hate you.

  • pulseimpact

    ***KEEP RANKED TEAM SNIPERS AND RANKED MLG!!!!!!!! I know you guys talk about fake 50s and how selling of accounts was a problem, but every 50 I know in snipers and MLG is legit. I don’t want to lose something that took me years to build the skill to get them. If MLG 50 is gone or my snipers 50s it will ruin all the time and years I spent playing that great game.

    Instead remove 7th on 7, Rumble Pit, Social Skirmish, SWAT…or better yet don’t remove anything. I’m very concerned that your changing Halo 3 right now. It’s the reason I bought xbox 360. You let fans down when you turned off xbox v1 and Halo 2. don’t make another mistake like that.

    Instead of removing Halo 3 playlists you guys should be spending time on a halo 2 remake! You keep trying to fix something that isn’t broken and completely forget what made xbox into the powerhouse it is today. Please don’t ruin Halo 3 microsoft!!

    • https://twitter.com/Ganon255 Ganon255

      don’t touch rumble pit

      • pulseimpact

        ok, but lone wolves has to stay because of the achievements. if it were up to me i’d keep both, but they are removing things and if they remove anything it better be social.

  • evilfangs .

    I really wanted to get rank 25 today in GTA online but for some reason when I try a mission it fails right away. It will takes years to rank up in normal free mode.

    Before you go correcting somebody be sure to get your facts straight. Both pronunciations are correct and accepted. Even if you were right(you aren’t), you don’t have to be a little ‘be-sh’ about it.

  • Nick Peck

    Everyone (accept you obviously) say it as Nitch. Funny how you complained about that though, bored?
