From what little I've heard (others here in NI have been sending the video around) they're 100% Northern Irish, which is a very distinct accent from regular Irish or Scottish. (Well, there are actually like 20 different accents even within NI itself but that's a whole other story)

I'm from the UK and you definitely need to do some research and reconsider this thread.

It's sort of crazy just how identical an experience to Banjo Kazooie / Tooie they're going for, especially when you look at the stretch goals - and listen to that music, I had to check it wasn't actually something out of Banjo to make sure.

But those games are some of my most beloved ever, so even though I'm not a big fan of the new main character designs so far, I'm pretty excited. Definitely gonna back it.

Yeah, the most confusing part of this post for me was that you seem to think you'd have to convince people here that Gawker is generally garbage.

Wait, why aren't you just using an actual podcast app..? Surely it's a far better experience.

Not to be harsh but, any particular reason you chose to invest in a degree in a subject you neither had passion for nor has excellent job prospects? =/

For what it's worth, I don't think it's at all rare to leave university/college feeling like you still know nothing and being scared shitless now you have to supposedly act like an 'adult'. People just figure it out, I guess.

In a lot of career paths the real learning definitely doesn't start until you get your foot in the door with a job (certainly the case in my field of programming). So I guess the best advice to give is make good use of your time; always be trying to acquire and improve on skills that will make you able to do whatever it is you want to do (once you know what that is :p).

You're a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.

P.S. If you loved Dan so much I imagine you'd respect his decision to come here and the thought that must have gone into that decision having been at GI for so long.

Ditto to the guy who said at least it ain't Polygon...but man do I dislike a lot of what Kotaku does as well. Good luck to Patrick though, he's a cool guy and it must be a crazy tough decision to leave a place like GB.

I also hope that the replacement hiring process here (if there is one, I'd assume it's already happened) continues to not yield to the ridiculous shitstorm that started around the last hiring decision. Would hate to see those people feel like they got any sort of win.
