I've seen a couple pages where the release date listed was actually for the game getting out of early access rather than the day they were actually released to the public. I think this is a mistake, as this site uses release dates to organize when certain concepts emerged. For instance DayZ is still technically in beta but it undoubtedly inspired a ton of games, it would be a disservice, I think if one to list a copy as coming out before it simply because that does not actually reflect the reality of the situation.

Thoughts? Opinions?

I've noticed that several Live Arcade titles don't have a system listed for them, just "Xbox Game Store" this works for systems like the Wii and DSI because only one system can access the shop. However "Xbox Game Store" as we define it can be used across two systems with each only having a limited selection of titles. Should we not also list them for the system they're on? For instance Rez HD would be listed under "Xbox Game Store" and "Xbox 360" because while it's accessed from the store in general, it can only be played on the 360.

EDIT: Ok so I've been able to see that on an actual games page they are listed by platform, but when sorting through the tags you only have one generic "XBGS" tag which still I think needs to be addressed.

I guess you guys just did some revision update or something that allows users to search for specific videos and games. It's a good idea, but it's really hard to search for games within the Wiki. I see you guys have an option on the side for deselecting options, the problem is this takes quite a bit of time to do and it doesn't seem to save your preferences so you have to deselect the options you don't want to see each time. It would be easier if there was just a way to easily select "Games Only" or "Concepts Only"

Thanks for listening

The whole Phil Fish debacle kinda makes me a little sick. It feels like when you were in middle school where kids would pick on other kids because it was easy and you know you'd get a reaction There are many facets I'm still trying to wrap my mind around in this story, I don't think anyone necessarily is fully in the wrong here, but I'm not sure there in the right either. A lot of us on the internet were picked on and socially isolated as kids, you'd think we'd learn to change that bullying mentality but it appears otherwise.

I want it to be clear I'm not blaming Beer here, he had no idea what was going to happen and while the message of his latest tirade certainly doesn't help matters I don't find him to be the real culprit here. I'm more talking about the angry villainous palm rubbing that some internet commentators are doing.

Haha yeah. I remember THAT episode too. The one Vinny was talking about. I remember it because everyone in my sixth grade class was grossed out about it.

He's Giant Bomb's East Coast reporter. If there's an event in New York or anywhere near by and it doesn't warrent the main cast going down he reports on it. He also does a premium movie podcast about movies with Rorie and reviews games.

I uploaded a box art image for Knack. It should probably be changed to the default image.

So I'm tempted to buy this game because of the Xbox sale that's happening now, but how are the controls? Are they optimized for consoles? I remember Turok not having any sort of aim assist and that just drove me bananas. Is this game good about that?

My chief complaint with Vanquish would actually be the generic setting and story as opposed to the gameplay. As to the idea that I'm playing it "wrong", my counter argument would be that a game should not let me play it in such a way in the first place. This is especially true if a players natural instinct would be to play it in such a way.
