Know what they need to play on UPF sometime? Mothereffin' Deathrow. So underrated. That game was fun as hell.

I won't partake in the whole "classic system" debate, but I certainly agree that the Xbox is underappreciated. The PS2 simply eclipsed it in the game department. But like other have said, there were some gems! Fable, Halo, MechAssault, Splinter Cell, Riddick, Mercenaries, KotOR, Ninja Gaiden, Burnout, etc. Yeah, some of those were on PS2, but damn if they didn't look great on Xbox...

Maybe I'm crazy, but one of my biggest gaming regrets is not dropping the cash on Steel Battalion...

I'm a big fan of women in comics! But I'm also a huge Thor fan... I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this yet.

All I know is they better have a badass writer lined up! And I hope they treat her like the God of Thunder appropriately. I don't want to suddenly see the men swooning over her or anything...

I only sorta barely know Ryckert and don't know O-Stryker at all, but I'm stoked for new duders! I've been going crazy wondering who they'd pick ever since it was mentioned (months ago?!)!

All the best to the new crew, and I can't wait to see them show up on the first UPF! (Haven't had a chance to listen to the new podcast yet either, so I'm curious how they gel)

As others have said, X-Men Legends 1 and 2 are both awesome. I preferred 2, personally; just felt like they ironed out some of the kinks and had a larger roster. Also, X-Men 2: Clone Wars for the Sega Genesis was AMAZING when I was a kid. One of the few games I actually finished growing up. Not sure how well it's aged, but it was awesome at the time.

They really need more awesome X-Men games...

That's ironic. This is literally the only place I DO read Twitter. And I kinda like it. But yeah, seems pretty easy to just scroll past...

But...but the Bombcast... They've already talked about how they don't like people Skype'ing for the Bombcast. Does this mean no more Vinny?

I'm stoked for more video content with Vinny and Alex, but not hearing him on the podcast will/would be a huge bummer...

I know this is slightly off-topic, but I actually attended a Microsoft app workshop last week and made my first app ever. It's a Giant Bomb app that displays their Youtube videos, and has rss feeds for news and the Bombcast, etc. It's pretty basic, but if anyone would like it, I figured it'd be you guys! Feel free to check it out!

Just tried it, and don't want to rate it yet. Since GB has a responsive web site design, I find using IE11 (via WP8.1) a more ideal way to get to the information your app should bring easier. I'd concentrate more on better forum navigation over everything else. That's where I'd see myself using it. Just being honest duder. The world of graphic design and program development can be a cruel place, though VERY rewarding. Never messed with the GB API, so good on you.

Hah, honestly I went to art school so I can deal with critiques. I appreciate the feedback! Considering it's the first I've made, I wasn't exactly expecting rave reviews... Thanks for checking it out!
