Looks like Fire Emblem. That's a good thing.

It's scratching a lot of those kind of itches for me for sure, Fire Emblem, XCOM, FTL, FF:Tactics, god-damn I can't wait to play this.

These trailers are for the PS3/360 versions right? because this doesn't look nearly as good as that first trailer or the E3 demo.

really hard to tell if this is a joke comment or not but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, there was recently a big hubub about a substantial graphics downgrade in comparison to that E3 demo.

Wait, this isn't the companion one to Origins? There was supposed to be like a Vita companion to Origins, right!? AM I CRAZY!?

nope, this is the one Kevin Conroy accidentally announced he was voicing Batman for months ago.

It's strangely eerie how Danny reacts, quips, and even stares at the camera just like Jeff. There's the Irish accent, but the deadpan and the banter is similar.

They must have had a hand off!

Well if you think about how long ago the hotspot and on the spot were, and Danny's relative age, Jeff's style was probably a big influence on him. I definitely remember Danny being mentioned multiple times during the hotspot era from community contributions.

I love this list and his genuine enthusiasm for gaming in general. Super awesome.

I feel like the lack of Fire Emblem is a huge oversight! Thought it'd be number one for sure.

I hate the internet.

And this comments section is rife with it.

Heat is one of those films, like The Big Lebowski, that nobody really cared for up-front and then ended up becoming huge memes. I wonder why that is. Maybe the sense of finding something cool not many people knew about while creating a sense of community around it?

I don't think Heat is anywhere close to the big lebowski in terms of recognition on the internet.
