Yeah I don't think consoles are in any trouble. Even though PC may always be at the cutting edge, there will always be people out there who would not prefer the complexity(?) of PC gaming or simply prefer the console experience.

Heck, I still even buy a next generation console to so I can media server it up (and for the games, of course). My PS3 does a great job playing anything I throw at it now, even 1080p .mkv files, surprisingly. A much better solution than going downstairs with my laptop to watch stuff.

You've got a point but even arguing the complexity bit nowdays is a hard argument to make when steam automatically patches everything. Back in the days where you had to manually hunt and download patches things could get a bit dicy but nowdays its so easy to game on PC outside of the few old games that you have to jump through hoops to get running on Win7.

That's also true; considering where we are today compared with a decade ago it is definitely a whole lot easier to game on PC, hence I put a question mark after complexity: the actual complexity really varies depending on the person and their prior experience with PCs. While we might remember the days when Steam didn't exist and there were a whole bunch of issues with compatibility with specs, drivers, and patching that Steam takes care nowadays there are still probably some people who are really young and really old who wouldn't take advantage of that. Especially with newer games when the specs are little more demanding and most people would've either had to upgrade or dish out a lot of bucks for a new computer altogether, getting the console version would be much simpler alternative for them since they wouldn't have to be mindful about that kind of stuff.

@Kingfalcon: It's become pretty legit. Probably the best English anime streaming service available right now.

It even does simulcast steaming of anime series (in 1080p, too!) that are new in Japan, too, so they've come a pretty long way.

I voted "Yes" because every week of Giant Bomb is the best week of Giant Bomb ever!

I've never seen spice and wolf (I've always wanted to)

You should watch Spice and Worlf!

Thanks for the shoutout, though! If you actually end up watching Girls und Panzer, I hope you end up enjoying it, or I'll feel bad for getting you to watch it! Also, yeah, they should've either went straight-German with the title instead of the really awkward English they had. It's pretty much as awkward as when Japanese songs have some broken English in them.

I could've sworn I already voted, but yeah -- definitely CollectSHUN!

A bunch of great stuff in the background too. I think at some point there was a Deathsmiles poster and Jeff towards the end got interview with a Tommy Heavenly6 poster in the background definitely brought me back to that one time he went mad with streaming a bunch of crazy things simultaneously in his personal twitch.tv from that new capture card kinda thing he just had back then. Man, that was a trip!

there was a pretty decent manga called centaur's worries or something about that (mythical creatures) but it's a slice of life thing that's pretty cool honestly

Yep, it's called Centaur No Nayami. I just might read it next.

Speaking of anime with mythological creatures for protagonists, I've meant to watch Seto no Hanayome (My Bride is a Mermaid)

Is it as good as it has been made up to be? I've heard a lot of good stuff about it.

Battlefield 3. I never played Armored Kill and Aftermath yet so I decided to give them a whirl.

Man... I love me some tank action.

I'd rather have people torrent my game and really love it and maybe inspire their friends to buy it.

Kinda reflects my way of doing things so I'd definitely sympathize with those people!

I loved Sleeping Dogs so much I basically plowed through it very thoroughly in a concentrated amount of time.

I got about halfway into Saints Row the Third but unfortunately it didn't click with me as much so I never really went back after I got into other games. As others have mentioned, the gameplay isn't too exciting. I'll have to revisit it and see if I can really get into it, though.
