It's probably not the fashionable answer but I use a Cuisinart CHW-12 and never have any complaints. It has a coffee brewer and hot water station and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. But I'm the kind of guy who just grinds his beans and makes a pot. If she's a serious coffee drinker, Bonavita and Breville both make really good, high quality machines.

I don't care because I subscribe to PS+ already. I understand that some fanboys lose a talking point because of this but I've had Gold and Plus and, for me at least, the two services don't compare in terms of value. I'll be PS+ for the life of the console provided the service continues to offer "free" games and, better yet, steep discounts.
Patrick seems like a guy I'd have a beer with but I do think he has a bit of a "me too" complex when it comes to discussing games, especially during the Bombcast. It's a roundtable discussion but Patrick's seeming need to have an opinion about everything gives his opinion less value (to me at least). Yes, they all talk over each other but make Patrick's constant interruptions can be aggravating, so much so that I can hear that aggravation reflected occasionally in the voices of Bard and Jeff in particular. Still, on a personal level, he seems like a cool guy; just maybe not the kind of guy to whom you make a flippant remark about a subject he's passionate about while standing in line at Starbucks.
I'm excited for the sale. LBPK and Tiger Woods 2013 are retail releases I never would have pulled the trigger on at retail but I'll give both a shot at ten bucks each. Also, I was holding off on Unfinished Swan because I was assuming it would show up as a "free" PS+ title (and probably still will) but for $3.75 I don't want to wait any longer. Good stuff.
I've never been a fan of Rooster Teeth. I listen to quite a few gaming podcasts but I can't bring myself to put that one in my regular rotation. I'll check out a few of the others listed but of the nominees I recognize, Bombcast is my favorite. I think that and Rooster Teeth are the most popular on the list so they both have a fair shot. Indoor Kids is Nerdist Industries so they may also have a chance even though they've gotten further and further away from games during the meat of their shows.
I didn't even know about the Sportsfriends Kickstarter until I heard someone mention it on a podcast earlier today then Patrick's story reminded me to get over there and contribute. It's a shame it seems they won't reach their funding goal.
I'm really enjoying the game. I wish the roster were a little bigger but at $0.99 it's not like I have anything to complain about. I was wondering what happened to Word Fighter. I was so happy when I heard Garnett say that was his first pickup at Gamefly Media. I hope it's a success so they'll be willing to jump on more quality titles.
Sorcerer's Lair gets my vote. I like most of the other tables but that's the one that feels most like a traditional pinball table and the one most in line with what appeared to be the original vision for Pinball FX and it's sequel.
