Thank you Alexis! Going to miss your special touch to the crew and all of Giant Bomb. Take care my dude!

Agree about the Weapon Slots thing, it is a little tiring to swap weapons in and out.

But, the two weapon thing hasn't bothered me in the first few levels, because it feels like most of the quest and combat situations were taking place in larger, open areas where I would only use long-range weaponry (Rifle/Pistol), so being limited to two of those wasn't too constraining, but it wasn't 100% ideal either.

Mine is Jet Force Gemini

I think Jeff mentioned it on the podcast for like 30 seconds once (or twice?), but I feel like the game was relatively unknown. Also, this damn thing:

Goldeneye: Rogue Agent was essentially a Halo 2 clone but with a myriad of Bond characters in it. With a plot that is so Bond-canon-breaking it makes my head spin, I actually enjoyed it because in addition to shooting, you get a variety of upgradable powers as you are equipped with a magic (Golden) eye. Probably the most literal Bond-titled thing, because it's literally your eye.

Agree with the sentiment here that this game is fantastic, but I also though it was difficult as hell. Especially the level with the rising acid (which was just color-swapped water) in the castle tower toward the end of the game.

Also, Bramble scramble music is too good. Glad I found people who like this game too!

Not assuming it will happen, but how likely is it that this will support the Dualshock 4? I've seen it advertised many places with a DS 3, but the DS 4 is the superior controller and support for it would absolutely cement my purchasing decision if I could use it with that right away.

I realize it's not released yet, but do you guys think there's any chance the GCN controllers could work for other games on the Wii U (Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta, etc)?

Also, if the console is put in Wii mode, would the GCN controller theoretically work for Wii games (Smash Bros Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, etc)?

Funny that they would play together later. I bet the conversations between LeBron and Shaq in 09 (Go Cavs!) were REAL interesting:

LBJ: "Hey Diesel, I can make you do an Inferno Kick"

Shaq: "Uhhhh........?"

From last summer. One of my favorite jams ever and I’m so pumped to remember that Ryan loved it and also it played in the Sony press conference at E3 2013

@redroach: Europa Universalis is a very different beast than CIV more diplomacy, trade and building but still war if you like strategy and history and have no problem spending several hours learning a game then go for it. I have enjoyed this and the previous games in the series very much.

Yeah, as a fan of Civ the big draw of EU4 is the much more realistic feel of the game. You are punished much more for aggressively conquering your neighbours, but there are very smart ways of taking over other nations through political and diplomatic manoeuvres that are much less costly than all out conquest by war. EU4 is much more of a simulation than a game comparing to Civ. Taking over the western half of Iceland after Norway allied with Tyrone (Ireland) in a war against me and using that as a foothold to base my expeditions into the new world was a really cool feeling. Meanwhile half of Europe is being split between Burgandy and Navarro who have formed an insanely powerfull alliance and are trouncing the Holy Roman Empire has me crapping my pants since I'm allied with the losing side.

Now I'm in a Naval arms race to keep my massive fleet far more powerful then theirs to prevent a land invasion which would utterly crush me. I'm hoping that the two of them will get fed up with splitting Europe and border tensions (with a little nudging from my diplomats) will end in them warring with eachother.

At the same time I'm hoping my colonies I'm creating in Canada and the US will give me enough trade power to really ramp up my tech.

This Majestic description just sold me the game. Bravo, Good Sir

@bisonhero: @kidavenger:

Thank you both for your input! I did not buy-in this round but bought Rayman Legends instead. Definitely will get KRZ in the near future
