From a content perspective I'm as fan. Every year a smattering of classics come out for the 3DS and the home console. On one platform all of Nintendo's games every year is actually pretty freaking sweet. That is assuming they don't continue with a separate handheld successor along with this hybrid, which would be confusing to me.

1991 Pontiac Trans Sport mini van. I wish I could include a picture but can't since I'm on my phone, but I'll just say that we named it the Dust Buster.

He's just the best to listen to on podcasts. I would love to say I'm going to listen/watch/read a lot from his new site but to be honest I only have so much tome in the day to devote to any one thing, so I know I won't get to see his stuff as much any more. So entertaining while also incredibly insightful wrapped up in an easily digestible package.

Since we're talking about all our favourite stuff, I'm going to be a wet blanket and mention the ONE thing I didn't like from Austin: That Batman cities article! He just kept going on and on about that diner and GODDAMNIT AUSTIN JUST PRESS THE FUCKING X BUTTON ALREADY. JUST. PRESS. THE. X. BUTTON.

But for real I will really miss Austin. Giant Bomb can no longer hire news people because they keep leaving us :(

The Giant Bomb massive guest-filled events are the real reason I'm hyped for E3. It's the only time I ever get to see so many industry people in one room chatting. It's actually awesome.

I like to do a lot of research for buying PC's, but for this one I'm just gonna go with what thewirecutter says is the best option.

What are the graphics options like? Can it look significantly nicer than the previous remasters?

@cav829: Thank for the resources! I've looked at PC Part Picker in the past but not JohnnyGuru. Seems more and more like the last thing I want to do is pick the wrong PSU. "Fuck it, pay more for quality" is my thought process at the moment

@stonyman65: Thanks for the resource! Here's the kind of PSU I would look at: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438049&_ga=1.10001213.94105510.1459861559

It seems like a pretty safe bet. I'm not sure if I understand the math right but it seems if I add up the amps it comes to 87.5, and the 12v is 45 of that, so about 51% of total power can be put to 12v parts... right? So I would have to know that all 12v parts aren't taking up more than 250-280 watts?

Edit: Never mind I had it all wrong, on the product page it says the 12v rail can do 540W, so basically I'm completely comfortable with a PSU like that. (Well, over 400w when factoring in efficiency)
