I haven't played LoL so will just say go for Dota 2. There will always be nastiness in the moba community, whether you're a beginner or a pro (I've seen TI winners being called out as noobs, yes). The trick is, just hit that Find Game button and continue playing. The shit talkers will eventually become jokes themselves, and you wont care at all.

Glad to have you around Dan and Jason. I'm looking forward to see what kind of professional, as well as unprofessional, stuff you can bring these murky parts of the Net.

Besides the one's that have already been mentioned, probably Battle Royale? It's really interesting but it's also just super weird and depressing.

There's a couple thick and slow paced thrillers from the 60-70th that I hold very near and dear to my heart, but that I can't seem to be able to enjoy again. French Connection, Marathon Man, The Conversation, Taxi Driver etc. I've tried to watch them again but stopped because I couldn't get into them, as if I watched it just for an academic purpose instead of just sinking into the plot. Truly sad.

The Conversation is one of the strongest movie memories I have. Don't really know why, it's incredibly slow.

The Conversation is the only one of those I'd describe as slow-paced, but yeah. Very memorable in a fever-dreamy sort of way, but not something I'd want to sit through again anytime soon. Have you seen the French Connection II? Seems like a weird thing to make a sequel to, but it's actually pretty good.

Oh yeah, I've seen it but I can't remember a lot of it. Wasn't it almost exactly like the first one but they caught they guy in the end.

Just play and it will feel natural in a bit, just like the close camera in Gear of War and the narrow FOV in Halo felt natural after a while... even though it's still horrible... but that's not the point. It's pretty much the mechanics of the game, to not get too much oversight.

Kevin VanOrd is great when given a topic he's interested in, actually better than most in the GB staff. How he is when spitballing random topics from the top of his head and #crackinwise I don't know.

Edit: I'd like Tom McShea, what the hell is discussion without a little salt

Goddamnit, I'm so alone (and so are most of you guys) But it's alright, cause of this

I'm not worried over the future existence of the site, I'm pretty sure it will do just fine. I'm more worried that the site becomes too much like a youtube Let's Play channel.

I was always planning on skipping all the next-gen systems unless they, somehow, swept me off the floor with the games and the functions. But instead of doing that, they went the most predictable and uninteresting direction possible. I don't even know what I want from a game console anymore.

In any case, I'm sticking to my old ass PC. It can still handle most games I'm interested in.
