" @Ekasra said:My point exactly. So out of view and pushed under the rug that if an every day user doesn't remember it's there, an average user probably doesn't know it exists." You know, reading this thread made me come up with an idea. Maybe Giantbomb should sponsor one of you wannabe game journalists a week by putting a well written user submitted review for a current game on the front page. That way, gives the person some exposure and something a little more official to put on their resume and promotes the community. Win win. "Go to home page. Scroll down. Duh... "

There was a point where video games was going to be a career choice for me, but I knew that making it my every day life would have taken away all the fun. Also, playing bad games makes my head hurt. A lot.
Sucks for those who buys sports games used. All two of them. Honestly, there's a market of people really into sports games out there. And that's fine. But those people are generally day one purchases anyway. Go into Gamestop or any retailer selling you used games and the majority of ones on the shelf are sports games because nobody buys them. In fact, I'm sure they fill they're quota on sport games they can take in a couple months after the game is released and still has an ample supply for the next decade.
It would need to have two of the following:
-It would need to cost the same as an arcade unit does now. So 199$ without a hard drive. If my hard drive isn't compatible, it would need to have an internal one.
-It would need to be about 10 times less noisy. I bought a PS3 for that very reason. Both my room at home and room in residence are small and the xbox makes it sound like there's a generator in here.
-Built in wi-fi. Kinda late to the party here Microsoft.
-More reliable hardware. I'm sick of sending these things back.
I bought a suit of original White Ranger armour for a film some friends were doing. It's set up in my room back home.
They're available in the news article the day after. They cannot be found in the video section of the site because they are recorded using ustream's software and embedded into the post.
Honestly, as much as I like the guy, Major Nelson should stay away from the video stuff on the xbox and it should be outsourced to a site like IGN. They have the wrong guy trying to appeal to a demographic they aren't in touch with at all. I say IGN because I think most would agree that being such good bedfellows with Xbox would hurt the site more than anything in terms of what they can say. That being said, I do enjoy listening to Major Nelson's interviews on his podcast. Mostly because they're a little more serious and he knows a thing or two about radio.
I enjoyed it. I say enjoyed because I don't think I'm going to be playing it very much. I burnt myself within two days of pretty hardcore sessions. There are just too little maps to keep my attention focused on testing the game, and any matches of Invasion I played left me frustrated with tiny bugs here and there that I reported to Bungie. I will, however, be buying Reach on day one. They seem to have gotten what I loved about Halo right and took out a lot of the annoying crap that was in the previous two games.
