I really want to go (I've never been to a convention of any kind before) but my girlfriend is in college that week, and I probably don't want to travel up there and wander around by myself. Not that she's into video games, but she's nice enough to pretend for three days if I asked. :)

Chris, Loved the show, but have to disagree with you on COD4 and Super Mario Galaxy. Those were the first two games I got after signing up for Gamefly and I think they're both excellent. Super Mario Galaxy is a masterpiece. I don't think those levels you describe are gimmicks, I think they're new an...

Imagine my shock and surprise to see not one but TWO new episodes of Twitch Asylum! Not even sure what made me check, as I assumed you guys were gone for good. But anyway, I'm glad I did. Just finished listening to this episode. Good stuff! My GF and I loved King of Kong, but when I got home and loo...

GTA IV Trailer

So what did everyone think? I was a little disappointed that the game wasn't completely different, as I'd suspected a total reboot due to the return of roman numerals, but once I got over that, I started to get psyched. Very excited about the Russian gangster protagonist, and the level of detail in ...

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

This morning I finally completed Twilight Princess, my first Legend of Zelda game since the original on the NES, and I must say I was impressed. Even with great games like Psychonauts and Bully, I usually get antsy around 10-12 hours in, but it took me FORTY-FIVE HOURS to play through Twilight Princ...

I'm very psyched about this. I've never played any previous Mario RPGs 'cause I'm not a fan of turn-based RPG combat, but from what I understand, Super Paper Mario is a little more about action and platforming. And it just... looks... BEAUTIFUL.

Sorry, I've been trying but I can't parse "TWiT" into anything I've ever heard of. What is that exactly? Besides Twitch Asylum, I listen to The Hotspot, Joystiq, and Xbox 360 Fanboy podcasts. And okay, once in a while I listen to IGN podcasts when I run out of other stuff, but it's always feels a bi...

Great show! I enjoyed listening to it, as always. I can't wait for the rest of the Nintendo series. Are you guys planning on adding a picture of Dave (I really hope that's his name) to your "About" page? Dave sounds identical to a manager at a Circuit City I worked at several years ago and it's kind...

Oh gosh. PC: The Longest Journey. I'm still in the first chapter. I love adventure games but this one is very long winded. Wii: Wii Sports. Now that I'm finally Pro in Boxing, I want to try to get Pro in some of the other categories. Super Swing Golf. My GF loves this game but the difficulty is nuts...

I'm trying to get my GS above 5,000 before Monday so I can be in the Level 2 tier of the contest. According to the page it then bumps you to level 3, so assuming I'm successful (and assuming I get another 1,500 in the contest period) I may end up with 2 free games! :D Just 85 points to go between to...

I've never played Worms but I can't wait to see what all the fuss is about. My only Worms experience is the pinball game (based on the same IP, it came included in a 4 CD Rom Pinball for Windows set I bought many moons ago, along with a bunch of other weird stuff). My Xbox alter ego, FreeTrialMan, w...

I am terrible at this game. My high score is like 120K or something. I'm not a quick reflexes kind of guy. I have a feeling this will be a permanent black mark on my otherwise decent gamerscore...

I'll concur, this movie is excellent. And I'm very surprised it was a CG baby, I could not tell at all.
