Seriously, why is Adam Sessler not there, or anyone from G4? I'm not a huge G4 fan personally but I think someone from them should be on the judges list.

I'm not a fan of G4TV, but I am a huge fan of Adam Sessler. I may not always agree with him but he normally makes great arguments and puts out a lot of great comments and thoughts in regards to the industry of video games. The lack of Adam Sessler on that list is disappointing. Having both Jeff and Adam on that list would give the Video Game Awards a lot more credibility in my opinion. So far their nominees and winners seem to be based around money, hype, and popularity rather than actual quality. The come off more as an advertisement rather than a celebration. I also detest the way the Video Game Awards presents people who play video games and the industry, and the forced celebrities that have nothing to do with video games or no interest in them being on that show is cringe worthy and down right pathetic. I think if the Video Game Awards gets it shit together though it could be great.

This gives entirely new meanings to his songs "One Time" and "Baby".

On a more serious note, I highly doubt this is true. Until I see results of a paternity test, and some more witnesses to confirm this story, I'm just guessing this is someone just looking for media attention and money.

I personally believe it would be great to see Giant Bomb be one of the few professional review websites that does not use ratings or stars but rather just text reviews that people will have to read and interpret on their own to decide if the game is worth it for them. I think far too many people simply see a number and just say "eh, 7.5 I will pass...", "8.5 game is a flop", "the game got a 10 it must be the best game ever." I think the number system is far too narrow and restrictive when it plays into art because it is hard, if not impossible to evaluate video games on a purely objective system, which is what the number system tries to do but fails.

Origin is not evil or bad as people make it out to be. It has its flaws, yes, but nothing major and the product is still in BETA. I purchased, and pre-loaded Battlefield 3 on Origin without any issues and have not had any major issues in using it over the past few weeks.

Can you get me a job at EA? PLEASE

I will totally fly you around in a helicopter, hoppin buildings in BF3 all day :D

Seeing as how I am University Student and have no affiliation with Electronic Arts, DiCE, or any sub or parent companies, no I cannot get you a job at EA. :P

The Code is still available, the user I gave it to was from Germany and said the code would not work with the pre-order, I do not know if this code will only work in the United States, or if it will only work with Pre-Orders within the United States but the code is still available if someone else wishes to try it out.

I will be playing the Campaign first, as I can imagine there will be server issues or massive lag from everyone trying to use the servers at once, so hopefully after a day or two that will pass.
