I can understand that Brad can be irritating sometimes when all we are doing is becoming a voyeuristic audience nitpicking him every time he is on screen or his game play is. But in the end who cares. I got no qualms with him. I mean the man enables God mode and still dies. In his own broken way he is beautiful.
Now Gamespot...I think they need to ditch Chris Waters or at least don't give him head chair. Patrick doesn't seem to jive with him very well. In recent history the latest Professional Wednesday was one of the most fun and that was partly due to Vindog magic and the lack of GS crew. Or just get that long haired chap that played Darkstalkers with Vinny. Sorry had to mini rant but I have no else to talk to on such matters because my friends don't watch Giantbomb.
"Duder" is gender-neutral. "Dudette" doesn't really make sense from a linguistic perspective anyway. "Dudess" would be more accurate.
-ette is the feminine suffix of some words in French. So it does make sense, in a "language is malleable" sort of way.
