Both sides of this pointless firestorm need to calm down. Here's an idea - and I am being totally serious, not sarcastic or facetious - why don't some of the notable female game journalists band together and create their own game journalism site? It may be too expensive to create a "female Giant Bomb" right off the bat, but it might grow into that. Just like Kevin Smith has said of people wanting him to read their scripts: "Don't beg me to read your script. Make the movie and I'll watch it."

I definitely favor Jeff handing off hosting duties to Brad more often/ on a regular basis.

I've been watching/reading stuff Jeff has been putting out since the early Gamespot days - when he's allowed to speak and act naturally he always has more to complain about than praise. That's just how he works. And it's much more entertaining/insightful to hear about how and why a game is broken than to hear some gush about it for minutes on end.

One thing that should change, though: I am sick and tired of all the Dark Souls and Roguelike coverage. It seems to be on its way out, but for a few months there the amount of content was getting ridiculous.

Is this a Dark Souls thing? Or just insane?

The PlayStation ad was clever, but we're to assume that guy has lived in the same one-room apartment for the last 15-20 years?

This is going to be hot garbage. Reasons:

1. PG-13 Rating instead of R? Check.

2. Coming out in the film-death month of February? Check.

3. Suit looks ridiculous? Check.

The director Jose Pidilha has done some good stuff in the past, so that's about the only glimmer of hope I see.

That thing looks like a photoshop render for a potenial "Is this what the next DS will look like?!?!?!?!?!" articles on IGN.

Well, this is just another example of a game turning into more of a "service," a la Team Fortress 2. The only difference between the trajectory of TF2 and Street Fighter 4 is the Capcom still insists on releasing (and charging for) separate iterations. Street Fighter V will most likely not arrive until the next-gen consoles have been out for some time in order to justify an entirely new product.

Man, this so crazy and sad. I've never gotten this upset about the passing of someone who is ostensibly a stranger to me. And yet, I have probably heard more of Ryan's thoughts on life and current events in the last 10-15 years than anyone besides my immediate family. He will be missed.

Interesting. Although, since the restrictive policies were already announced the XONE was certainly designed with those policies in mind, I give MS about 3 years before these policies rear their ugly head again. By then maybe a lot less people will care (i.e. acceptance of digital-only), but nonetheless...
