Putting out a stream mostly puts pressure on the CPU (and your internet upload of course). Getting a seperate device to deal with the streaming is common and recommended, I think.

Like the Avermedia Live Gamer HD, for example. But there's a ton of alternatives.

Note: A capture card doesn't fully take the load off your PC, though. So a lot of people have dedicated PC's to deal with the stream. Which is even more recommended, but not necessary.

As much as I disliked Hack 'n' Slash, the music was kind of great

I like Jason, he a great guy and I'd like to hear him on the Bombcast. As for most people that are new to broadcasting themselves, he needs to grow into the "here I am, now I'm talking, I'm saying good stuff" -role.

But then again, I don't know if he even wants to be that. And I would like to hear more Rorie, and Danny, and Mary. So maybe leave that fifth chair open.

How about any puzzle or problem solving game in general? Layton, Puzzle Agent, The Room, Picross 3D, Phoenix Wright, Myst, Portal. And how about the recent adventure games from Telltale?

As of Co-op... hmm. Ilomilo?

I also got Spacebase for free recently for owning Hack 'n' Slash. I was looking forward to Spacebase and was going to buy it, until I heard it was pretty broken, lacking and generally unfinished. Which is sad, because I think Hack 'n' Slash isn't much more than a good idea either. Double Fine should re-think the Amnesia Fortnight method a bit, or scrap it, in my opinion. (Sorry, off-topic)

@frostyryan: Not just pause, but skipping cutscenes is something every game needs. It's kinda hard playing Final Fantasy X, watching a cut scene, getting a game over for whatever reason, then being forced to watch it all over again.

Final Fantasy X is more than a 10 year old game though. Yeah the HD version should have let you skip scenes but right off the top of my head, I can't think of a recent game that doesn't at least let you skip...

Actually, I recently played through Enslaved on PC and it doesn't let me skip cutscenes. This is really frustrating when I quit after starting a new chapter, I must re-watch the entire intro when I come back to the game. Or if I fail some some bosses, I must go through the cutscene again.

Given, Enslaved isn't THAT new either. But I think there's a couple games here and there that doesn't let you skip, still.

I'm kind of into games right now and don't have much to complain about other than too cluttered collectibles.

Oh, and standardize where we find the subtitle option, please.

It's not a direct assumption from their side, but something that I've been noticing lately is how quick and explicit people answer that they don't play games and don't have time for that stuff when I bring up games in any way. Hey, I know you don't do a lot of the things we've talked about, why did you feel the need to tell me this now because I mentioned Mario, Mr. Grownup Adultman? Do you think I have the time to watch football all sunday?

Maybe it's all in my head.

Monday morning it's coffee, friday night it's beer. Everything in between, it's water... no actually, it's still coffee.
