    Anyone listen to this yet? Did he say anything about the horrible shutdown of the gamerscoreblog.com site?

    Major hasn’t mentioned anything on his blog about gamerscoreblog shutting down and he didn’t link to it. Surely he mentioned it during the podcast, else it would be a shame.

    I did not mention the Gamerscoreblog on my show since this show was recorded late Friday, before I found out the news. The good news is that the GSB team will be working on other Community related project as they said in their post.

    I’m kinda’ interested in “The Maw”, being that it’s a 3D platformer. You know, as long as it’s good.

    Listening to the podcast now.

    It’s “Boon” not “Boone”.

    Hi Major, thanks for posting the $29.97 13 month Gold card option! I’m currently stationed in the middle east, but ordered it to my house back in the states when I return. Great buy!

    The Maw sounds interesting, I didn’t think I would want to play another platformer, but hearing the discussion might have just changed my mind…

    I can’t imagine buying a 360 for the first time today, not only are there a slew of good games to get today, but there’s such an awesome back-catalog. I’m still trying to find the time to play games I’ve overlooked over the last year! It’s impossible to catch up… 😦

    Good to hear from Ed Boon. He has been on the OXM podcast a few times and he was always interesting on their show. MK has been a great franchise over the years.
