I think polls are busted but yes, did the whole thing.

Half Life 2... It's weird, I haven't really liked a FPS ever since. Except for maybe Crysis, but I only played that once.

If we have to complain about anything I'd go with too little Vinny.

But there is a reason for that. They knew their space & time at TVGuide.com was limted, but they still had to make some sorts of setup. That was a lot fo effort without much return but it needed to be done. Now they are at CBSi offices with a refurbished studio space being only now constructed, yet that is where their offices are....so they need to get settled there all over again. What I do hope, is they manage is to drag in a few weirdos from that office to be on camera. I have no clue what happens at that CBSi office in addition to CNet, but even tapping some of that talent to come hang out once in awhile would be cool.

No, even before that office change there wasn't enough. I'm sure he's busy like hell during the day, but I can't help but miss him on the podcasts, on the live shows (those mini liveshows with alex aren't the same) and on Quick Looks with the guys in SF (a Dan and Vinny QL would be great).

I also never got the sense that they were one bad remark away from saying something legitimately offensive and alienating a bunch of people, which is a lingering concern I have with Dan.

Well, Ryan actually did that once... He apologised about it in a good way however.

Soo it's more WoW?

What else would it be? Did you expect them to completely revamp the entire premise 10 years in?

I think I would check a lot more often had you guys updated it more frequently, you are one site among maybe 2-3 on the internet whose opinions I truly value, so it would be a nice thing certainly.

I work at a small company making nursing call systems (among other things) as a software engineer. I love it so far because it gives me the chance to really show and improve my capabilities in both front-end and embedded programming. Because we're only 4 people on the development department, the atmosphere around the office is generally very laid back (even though we're tied to a tight time schedule of course) which I appreciate.

At some point you need to be able to talk about the game and that means revealing some information.

"At some point" - does that mean before the game is even out?

I guess absolutely no information on what you're purchasing to determine wether or not it's for you is the preferred method.

Yep, it's either spoil the game for me or don't tell me a single word of what you think of it, nothing inbetween... genius.
