If you liked Weekend Confirmed, you should check out First For Gamers with John and Garnett and DLC. The former is John Davison and Garnett Lee's podcast and the latter is Jeff Cannata's podcast. He is joined by Christian Spicer.

I always take a moment to recommend Orange Lounge Radio, a video game podcast that's been around for 12 years. It's pretty traditional in format, but the hosts are often entertaining as they discuss the week's news.

And if you want to try something outside of video games, check out Good Job, Brain!. It's a fun trivia podcast with four lively hosts.

UPDATE: Oh, you know what I've been into lately? GT Time, the Game Trailers podcast. It's hosted by Kyle Bosman of the Final Bosman segments on the website. The rest of the crew are unremarkable, but his awkward nerd passion makes it enjoyable.

I hope Vinny ends up in some sort of audio content, because unlike videos I always have time for that.

This. I listen to podcasts at work and while videos are great, I don't have as much time for them as I would like. I've never missed a Bombcast, but rarely catch the AM show in its entirety. I know the AM show has an audio upload, too but...well, remember when Vinny took the lead chair at the Bombcast and he added all these effects and had Patrick swearing up and down that Microsoft wouldn't cut the Kinect? That's the type of shenanigans I'd like to hear again. He was great when he moderated the Gamespot podcast, too. Listen to a few of those old ones if you can find them.

Oh, and I think Drew is doing a great job now that he's a regular on Bombcast Original.

Since no one has mentioned it yet, I recommend Tekkonkinkreet. It's different than what most people think of when they think anime.

Goblet of Fire was my favorite of the books, so I voted for it. I honestly don't remember much about any of them specifically. Just blurry general images like Haggar, a giant spider, a girl in a mirror, some sort of potion lady, an ugly cat, etc...

I read this morning that the actor who played one of the villains in the last few movies died yesterday (July 11).

Darkwatch, Armed and Dangerous, Hunter: The Reckoning, Otogi: Myth of Demons, The Suffering and Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy...all good games that never made it past their generation.

Probably not too much. Games will still revolve around shooting scores and scores of guys coming at you. What I'd really like to see are smarter enemies. Baddies who aren't ashamed to just drop everything and run. Others who coordinate with each other to pin you down or flush you out. Finally, I'd like to see the return of story in shooters. Precious few take the time these days to tell a story. Most shooters these days are a series of Michael Bay set pieces. They look great but often leave me unsatisfied by the experience. Why do you as a player character have to be this faceless blank? Bioshock Infinite did a good job of creating a character for us to inhabit through the game. Battlefield Bad Company 2 added entertaining characters who followed you through the game. As much as I love Halo, Master Chief spends way too much time alone.

I had a 60 gig launch PS3. It was loud. Not as loud as my launch 360, but still loud. My PS3 died so I replaced it with a PS3 Slim (the type where the disc still slides into the front) and it's been comparatively quiet. Sometimes I don't even realize it's on.

The Elder Scrolls, no contest. I missed Daggerfall, but I've logged hundreds of hours through Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim.

Runners up in no order are SMT: Persona, Halo, and Dragon Quest.
