This will be terrible for MGS games' lore if Konami keeps making them after he leaves. It'll be like the pre-post-Halo-4 split. But then, nobody cares about canon anyway.

I would argue that Metal Gear is one of the franchises where people do care about canon.

Are proxies blocked?

Anyone else getting a 404 when trying to watch episode 6?

Yep! They've also now removed the link from the home page (and it isn't showing up in the video feeds), so either they're working on it right now or the auto-uploader is broken.

I stayed up for an extra two hours just because I was excited for the next episode, so I'll be super bummed if it doesn't get ironed out within the next half hour :/

Well I don't know if it was just luck but I cleared my cache and the page started working.

Just luck timing; looks like they fixed it

I, too, was sad that I missed the other one by a couple hours. Hopefully this one gets funded!

a) I don't think they're expecting it to hit as hard as the first one did.

b) It seems like there are plenty of people who no longer have their last-gen consoles hooked up who are willing to buy Rock Band again just to have it on current-gen.

c) Your circle of friends is much older than they were when Rock Band 2 was huge. I'm sure there are tons of middle- and high-school and college kids who would love to play Rock Band as a party game.

My group of friends has a couple guys who get super mad when they're losing (like, yell at everyone/the game, ragequit, etc.). I typically either just a) avoid playing with my other friends if they show up and I don't want to deal with them that day, or b) only play with them if the rest of the group is there, so that I have people to still talk to if they end up getting mad.

"Talk to him about it"/"get new friends" is the ideal solution that everybody will offer, but from my experience, the first one doesn't work and the second one isn't practical.

It certainly can and will make a difference in certain situations. EVGA, for example, ate a lot of flak near the launch of the 900s for using a less-than-stellar heatsink design which was causing their 'deluxe' cards perform worse than the stock cards of other manufacturers.

Most benchmark websites will compare and do reviews of each manufacturer's stock and deluxe cards as well, so, like any other PC part, you've just gotta put in a little time and research to make sure you don't waste your money.

Did they give dates for any of the stuff you've got listed in the March 9th update, or just a "this is stuff we're working on" thing?

My understanding is that Chroma and the Tombs of the Sentient thing will come with update 16, which has not yet appeared. The bunny ears is likely an Easter event thing that may come separately.

No word on the potential Void changes or the Dex Dakra?
