I saw people doing that and a duder told me what they were up to. My reaction is that it seems boring. But if you are at a place where there is a means to an end... more power to you. I don't fault anyone for grinding in any game if they have the stomach for it.

I'd rather cruise around doing patrol missions or seeing what ledges I can boost up to while shooting stuff. Or just straight up doing crucible or strike missions.

You know... I had to actually look up what the fuck gamergate was 3 weeks after it supposedly happened?

Just an FYI there are people that use the Internet, and who are gamers, who don't have fuck all clue what is going on when someone at a PAX panel says people on the Internet are being mean.

proof that ignoring that shit, works

so... don't link to perpetuating nonsense

I see WoW mentioned a lot as a good example comparison, but Everquest was far more brutal.

Both games eventually tuned the endgame encounters to let more casual players experience them.

Bungie doesn't want to see it's flagship raid content facerolled in the launch window.

On the other side of this though are the failed Star Wars MMOs. I love Star Wars to death but when it stopped telling me it's story and asked me to "be a part of it" or whatever, I lost the thread.

We haven't had much gamer drama on the Internet lately, so I'd say we were due for this one.

I was fortunate enough to run into Ryan once at a liqueur store in Seattle during PAX. Dude was exactly how I knew him from 'the internet' and super happy to talk to a guy who only knew him as "giant bomb". That was when I was only casually familiar with the site and podcast. I believe it was then that I became a full fledged duder.

Patrick you posted a quote that your father had on his desk I believe. Some time ago. Attitude by Charles Swindoll. I had never seen it before but that very moment a bunch of shit clicked into place for me and I made some life changes shortly afterwards. It sounds silly I know, but totally legit.

Anyway... Thanks to the whole crew for being great and providing awesome entertainment. Thanks for being unique

About the voice control stuff... I think we are lightyears away from voice being an integral part of how we interact with computers.

People say Google does it well, and I agree, except when it doesn't work right and you have to repeat yourself, the same thing with Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon. Also it just doesn't feel natural, and it annoys EVERYONE around you.

I was near a guy the other day who was dictating his text messages back to someone, and it was the most unnatural, ridiculous things I have witnessed in a long time when it comes to human interfaces.

It doesn't mean we should stop trying, however, and I actually think MS was taking a bold step making Kinect a pack-in. It really is too bad they backtracked.

MGS4 is about 2.5 hours if you skip the cutscenes. This shit is waaaaaay overblown with drama.
