I'm absolutely convinced that Polygon gets more hate here and more vile comments then any feminist related article, which is kind of absurd. Never quite understood it. There's some rad people there.

Everyone seems to be focusing on Justin as representative of the McElroy brothers (either you love him or hate him). Griffin is just as awesome and he seems to be a whole lot less jaded than his brother (dare I say, even enthusiastic at times). He's also an insightful dude, funny and an excellent writer - a lot of things that complement the GB crew.

Edit: But yeah, not a fan of Arthur Gies. The man exudes "fuck you - I know better" to almost everyone in close proximity.

I <3 Griffin. Just the way he says things and speaks is hilarious to me. As mentioned by someone else in the thread Phil Kollar is pretty rad too.

It looks nice and plays fine. just make sure you know how to play before going online or the ground game will ruin your fun. i like it as an overall game but there is couple people missing from the roster.

How's the career mode? And also I could be wrong, but I think EA already has like 3 fighter DLC packs coming. Even better I believe they are free. Again could be wrong on that.

Where ya hear they are free? I question that because on the PS Blog there is already DLC listed. Bruce Lee (which, obviously is a preorder bonus as well) and Royce Gracie. Both which cost money. Not only that... Bruce Lee is being sold for money for each individual weight class he is in or a "bundle" for him in multiple weight classes. That's pretty damn dumb.

Of course there will be other DLC. Diego Sanchez said in an interview that he was bummed because he is a DLC fighter and not in the main game.

Saw it on Twitter and also found it here:

There are some reviews out there. I think the game is floating around the 70's area on Metacritic, if you care about that sort of thing. Some high scores, some lower ones.

Embargo should be up already though, so no idea why we haven't seen any reviews. Jeff's on vacation I think, which is why I'm guessing no Quick Look, but I've seen other reviewers mention it on Twitter, but nothing yet.

Ugh why post this? She's pretty much all but forgotten. Just ignore her a little while longer and she'll go back to being irrelevant.

Really hoping we get a Quick Look of this tomorrow, but I'm guessing not.

Guests should be chosen based on how fun and interesting they are, not by their sex or ethnicity. A relatively low number of females on the panels is directly related to the relatively low number of female E3 attendees, and completely unrelated to Patrick's "lack of diversity" as some are insinuating. I mean, for gods sake...of all people who need to be educated about diversity, Patrick isn't one of them. I'm confident that if there were tons of other females that were available and who would have fit well on the panels, then they would have been there.

If you have a source showing that less than 10% of attendees are women I’d love to see it because that strikes me as remarkably low, even for a male-dominated show like E3. But, for the sake of argument, let’s say you're correct. This means — assuming the numbers are consistent with the past few years — roughly 4,500 women attended E3 this year. Are you really suggesting that there are only 5 women who are available and “fit in” among 4,500? Should matching E3's gender breakdown really be our minimum standard? I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect better from Giant Bomb. Look, I’m eternally grateful that Patrick’s a part of the site and I think his work is consistently excellent, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be held to account when he falls short. I mean, isn't that the whole point of this thread?

The funny thing is I found none of the women entertaining, well except for Alexa. They seemed pretty bland and uninteresting.

I'll always have a special place in my heart for Square. They gave me some of my most cherished gaming memories when I was young. Even now I think they still do well for themselves. It's just hard to top what they used to be. SNES/PS1 era Square was, in my opinion, absolute god tier and nigh untouchable. An amazing streak that contained a variety of awesome games that will never be topped.

Bummer that Warlock is the popular class on here and other forum polls. That was what I was looking to use. No biggie I guess.
