I never really liked Minecraft so I don't really have a stake in this. But I'm finding the reaction from the internet pretty hilarious.

Gonna toss my vote in for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. That is right up Dan's alley

I think he looks really great. He's quite handsome and seems a bit more realistic than Charlie

@deckard: chill out a bit. It's okay to dislike him but damn.

Gangnam Style, Desperado by The Eagles, Most songs off of Led Zeppelin IV. All Fleetwood Mac. Basically if the Classic Vinyl station on Sirius plays it every 2 minutes, I can't listen to it anymore. Also Hey Brother by avicii is super played out now.

I'll add my voice to this:

The heavy-handed moderation needs to stop. This isn't just about what's happening now--I had it out with Rorie in PMs a while back about this, and now it's just becoming absurd. I can't even talk about the details about the most major story happening in gaming news because someone might accidentally misogyny. Entire threads are getting blown away where 99% of the discussion had nothing to do with what is happening. Fucking ridiculous.

I don't see the point in engaging in discussion in this environment. Posts are getting vaporized and the mods haven't even bothered to explain themselves with a simple sticky.

Thank you!

This is what i was trying to say last night but was waaaay too tired to make the point coherently.

It feels like a police state sometimes, i get the mods have a tough job. I was a mod for years on different forums and its a thankless job. But its being taken too far here and i don't see it changing soon. Not all news threads are going to kick off with misogyny/racism.

This is pretty much my thoughts as well. As a mod on a few other websites, one of which gets a ton of traffic at times, I understand that moderators do so at their discretion. But sometimes things just go a bit far. I'm guilt of it myself, you want to keep the peace so you delete anything even remotely inflammatory, but I have had comments deleted that I didn't feel were worth that, and I've seen others as well. I'm not saying the moderators are bad, in fact, Giant Bomb has some of the best moderation I've seen. Just, maybe hash out some actual rules on what counts as "Don't be a dick." That's all.

So what you're saying is it's bad when a game feels like a game? I see people say this all the time, but I don't understand how that's a bad thing. I play games to be entertained, not have a deep meaningful experience. Games are just that to me. Games. So if something takes me out of the immersion, whatever, it doesn't really hurt things for me. Maybe I'm just weird though.

I'm super excited for this, not because of PC elitism, but because I really care about MGS and being able to experience it on PC is exciting for me. The downside to this is that my decision to buy a PS4 continues to be a bad one and I feel like at this point I should sell it and buy a Wii U

Kojima won both Gamescom and my heart. Also I suppose we can just stop anticipating any announcements of substance from Valve from now on?

@conmulligan: So much this. Rorie was a fucking champion after Dan and Jason got hired and really proved his worth.
