  1. What did Cliffy have to say about the Gears 2 DLC getting released earlier this week and half price?

    I would hope that for the first 24 hours of release the DLC would be at a reduced price (so that would put the rest of people on par with those who got the early unexpected treat). I doubt that would happen. Anyway, I know everyone at Epic worked hard for the DLC, but it would be cool to do something like that for the fans who weren’t up in the wee hours of the morning to get the DLC.

  2. I think It’s very wrong that the gears dark corners map pack was released on friday. The worst of it all is that it was priced at 800 m.s. points. I’m wondering how does Microsoft feel about that and do they plan to do anything about it?

  3. downloading now, but really enjoyed the last interview with boris you had on so looking forward to this one

    shame no e but good to have lollipop in – is it just me or does she have a real nice soothing voice?

  4. “shame no e but good to have lollipop in – is it just me or does she have a real nice soothing voice?”

    Yeah your right, like she’s sucking on a……

    lollipop!

  5. Call me old skool I am still coming to terms with women in the games industry 🙂

    Only kidding, good job all and lollipop. Well worth a listen as always.

    Great story about Monkey Island and the German translation, fascinating insight into things.

    Is this the end of “E” as a co-host, after last weeks Jingle for Xbox 101 not mentioning “e” only Major, I think the plan is being executed!

  6. One more ding about EPIC releasing a “complete” set of maps for 1600MP. For those of us who have played and previously purchased those map packs this is a HUGE stick in the eye. Why punish the loyal players?? I guess we’ll see on the 28th but for those of us who have been playing the game this really sucks. The XP in Horde is awesome and finally gives me a reason to convince some friends to play through on Hardcore or Insane.
