Ryan predicted this game a year ago...

On the December 8th, 2009 edition of the Giant Bombcast, Jeff explained that the multiplayer for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks...  
 
Listen to a clip here
 
Ryan noted that it sounded a lot like Pac-Man. Jeff shot down that idea by mentioning that Zelda had bombs and Pac-Man didn't. Ryan then contemplated on how great the idea of Pac-Man with bombs would be. 
 
Little did they know, less than a year later, this idea would become reality.

This is important information. We must all be more vigilant in the future.
 
We may already have been told about the mega-games of tomorrow.

Or somebody heard this and traveled to the future to make the game to fuck with everyone... think about it.

Also I think back before giant bomb podcast started, in the arrow pointing down. One where Brad was a guest, he also called Rock Band 3 having a keyboard. These guys know the future!

If that happens, that just means Michael Pachter will be hanging out over at whiskey media more often.

this pac-man prediction is only one in many other "coincidences" that the GB-squad told. If you listen to the old podcast you will be amazed.

Predicting the bombs is fairly impressive, but if anyone would have predicted the HUNDREDS OF GHOSTS model of DX, that would be god-damned sorcery.

That's nothing. Vinny predicted that Gearbox would take over Duke Nukem Forever in a bombcast from like early '09. Now I have to go find the exact one.

At the ending minutes of the MW2 Spoilercast, Jeff totally called that Infinity Ward will leave Activision before MW3 is released. 
So many accurate predictions - THESE PEOPLE ARE FROM THE FUTURE!
