DEFENSE!  De-fence. There needs to be less over all fence in everything.  So much fence going around these days, I just want to be a legitimate pawn broker in a fence's world.

Damn, and I just imported the Tron Legacy soundtrack... my first and likely only CD purchase of 2011. (?)
Oh well, Daft Punk will still be there when I need them. Never let me down yet. 
NEITHER HAS THE BOMBCAST YO. 

@Rayeth: "Legitimate Broker" is a great start for your rap career, Broke'. 
Protip: on the second album, shorten to Legit' Bro'.

OK so I'm playing the PS3 version of DC Universe and I'll admit I'm enjoying myself. Does this mean if I was to start playing WoW I would absolutely love it. I don't normally play MMOs. In fact DC universe is the first MMO I've played.

@Sharpshooter: Are you liking the comic book universe or the gameplay?

Fuck Alex is on. Giant Bummercast...

Posted by delorean99947

Jeff really doesn't like DCUO, while lots of people like it. Including me. I guess a reviewers point of view is different from the normal gamers point of view.

I've never played an MMO and I'm loving DC Universe.  I couldn't disagree more with Jeff.  
 
His performance issues and frame rate problems seem like a broadband connection issue on his end.  Mine runs fine.

Fuuuuck yeeeaah Alex

I love Alex <3 
 
I do love Vinny more though (more than anyone, to be fair), so that sucks.

I'm going to counteract some of the comments here and say... 
 
YAY Alex! I like hearing him talk about games instead of movies sometimes. 
 
edit:  I'm starting to feel like I'm the only person on the site who likes everyone on not only GB, but also Screened and Tested. Even Will and Alex. I think they're all great.

Shame about Vinny being absent. He is quickly becoming my favorite member of the regular crew.

Posted by ComradeCrash

Awesome!

Posted by face15

But seriously, I'm ten minutes in and already want to punch Alex in the face. 
Why don't you get Will or Norm or Dave on when you've got a spare seat? Those are guys are actually likable.

Ah, good, I was hoping there would be a guest. I imagined Vinny being there, though...

Posted by GorillaSalad

Man, the bombcast is the bestcast!

Posted by GreatDane

Alex is great. Have loved him ever since that truck game he reviewed over on gamespot...... :-)

Norm and Dave is likable. Will is "kind of an asshole"......

The lack of Nintendo Downloads is really bumming me out.  I want to hear Animal Boxing.

Call the new Elder Scroll system M.A.T.S. or Magic assisted targeting System

Posted by Grondoth

Did you guys never hear of cosmetic equipment before? I guess it makes sense, you aren't really MMO folks. But many modern MMOs have a system similar to the one I heard described. Off the top of my head, I know Vanguard, Warhammer Online and Lotro have systems where you can equip things simply for show, and it adds a ton to character customization. No one wants to be wearing pink boots with green pants and a baby blue vest. 
 
Well, maybe no one. But most.

When I first read 'Final Fantasy XIII-2 here,' I thought it was a GB joke.

Posted by RobertOrri

Awww, man, no Vinny? That does make me pretty sad.

Posted by Faint

Coincidentally as they were mentioning John Romero and Wolfenstein, I was reading a book about id Software and was at the point talking about them working on Wolfenstein. As for Final Fantasy and SquareEnix, all I want to say now is that I consider them to be the laughing stock of the industry right now. I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if XIII-2 makes little improvement on XIII if any. I've heard Nomura interviewed before where he basically said that the company don't really pay attention to complaints from gamers. They just make whatever they want to however they want to, regardless of whether its a good idea or not. If they're going to keep up that childish attitude they'll be lucky to be around another 5 years.

You guys talked about it and weren't sure about this so thats why I mention it. 
 
I got the GoW2 GOTY edition for my birthday last year. It comes with codes to get each separate DLC thing. Its not on disc.
 
Thought you'd want to know =P

I don't think DC universe online is bad, I've played lots of mmos and DCUO seems like any other mmo kill dudes do quests but it's impressive how every quest has voice acting but probably playing it on the ps3 is a bad ideea.

Posted by Undeadpool

Alex gets ALMOST as much hate as any other guest on the Bombcast (except maybe Other Brad...) 
 
But that's why I love Giant Bomb: they do what they're gonna do regardless of complaints.

Posted by GunnBjorn

Okay, people, I haven't listened to it yet, but could someone tell what Henry Rollins has to do with this week's BombCast? Thank you.

I don't care for a lot of his commentary, but he isn't that invasive on this podcast. It's worth listening to.

Does he laugh at any point? Cause that nasally "Guhuh" he does fucking crushes my soul.

A few times, but nothing he does is offensively irritating on this. He seemed relatively relaxed as opposed to the on-sugar routine he seems to possess for some of his appearances across Whiskey Media.

Big reason why he and Vince don't get along... He (Macho) totally messed around with Vince's UNDERAGE daughter.

That's the rumor, anyway.

Thing is, I have a friend that is fucking IDENTICAL to Alex in every way but looks. He does the same nasally "Guhuh" after each sentence as if he's insecure about what he just said.  
 
He just seems like one of those nervous guys because he's aware how socially inept he is. 
Posted by ShadowKnight508

The best part of the day, even when Vinny is gone.

Edited by Rmack

I hope that if they don't continue with the DSi releases (;_;) that they spend more time on emails. One of the biggest reasons I love the Bombcast is the length. 
 
Edit: And this may sound snarky, but there's absolutely no other content on the site today. A longer podcast would have been nice.

I wouldn't say it that harshly. But if you feel that strongly about it then I guess you're better ignoring what happens to be the best bombcast since the break.

No offense, but in my opinion, that doesn't mean it isn't offensive, to be honest, nothing personal.
