Who exactly is going to be in the room this year? Patrick and Alex? I really like Drew but he just seems to play less games. Alex seems to play and review a lot of games, so I hope he's included.

That's interesting. I still occasionally play Lotro and I've wondered how I'm going to ever catch up with the content being produced. I'm level 58 at the moment.
This level boost only takes you to level 50, so no help there for me. The current level cap is 95, so I'm not sure what the point of it is.
I liked the Fallout 3 level of DLC: $10 chunks of meaningful content. New environments, items, story, etc. $1 weapon skins or whatever I can do without.
Progress boosters are bad because you'll always be left wondering if the progress was deliberately slowed to sell boosters. Generally I don't like buying things that can be earned in game.
I don't think video games are too expensive. I usually pay 10-30 dollars for 360 and PC retail type games. Every few years when a game I'm really excited about (Like Elder Scrolls or Mass Effect) comes out, I'm happy to pay $60 or more for it.
Really, based on how many .99 games I buy for my android phone (zero), I'd assume that most .99 games are too expensive. Free appears to be the appropriate price. Most phone games aren't worth the time to download and take a look at them.
It seems really well put together and fun. It definitely reminds me of a magic the gathering type game. Not sure I'm into that anymore. Maybe because I seem so bad at it. I think I'm about 2-8 against other people. I'm playing the Mage I started with. I usually go up 10 points really quickly and then my opponent comes back and crushes me.
I don't really have any affinity for Warcraft stuff but the presentation is good. I'm on PC but I can see how playing on a tablet could be fun.
I sort of wish the art was presented better, and there was some flavor text for the cards.
Almost all the games I played came out in previous years. Looking at my Xbox account it looks like the only games that I played that came out this year were Defiance and Skylanders Swapforce. I did play Bioshock Infinite on PC, so I guess that wins. That or Legend of Zelda Link Between Worlds.
Did Crimson Shroud come out this year? That was pretty boss.
@mlarrabee: Yes to everything you are saying. I'm hereby granting you the power of two forum posters because you are saying exactly I want to say re: free will vs. determinism, and whether human vs. machine intelligence is a matter of quality or quantity.
Interesting thread guys. I had the idea of googling up "turning test for art" and it yields some interesting results.
Thanks for the info, I'll try out the characters you suggested. I picked Scorpion as he is the first on the select screen and felt ok with him. I got to the second to last guy on arcade mode at the lowest difficulty. It was a little frustrating playing with him since I knew he has a signature "Get over here!" move, but I could figure it out from the move list.
Block being on a button is a huge change, I don't know if I'll be able to get over that. And if I continue using the SF fight pad I think I'll have to reconfigure it, since it has some of the triggers as buttons and it makes some of the moves really awkward.
Human beings are programmed by evolution (genetic mutation and natural selection) and their environment (physical surroundings and other people). I see no reason why similar processes couldn't eventually occur in computer based intelligence.
