I don't see the problem along as the respect is still there for the parent. I think often when kids become adults they can have a close relationship with the parents in a friendship like level. It often happens when the parent is still pretty young in mind or spirit and has that relationship were the offspring don't hate being around the parents for long periods of time.

I'm happy to have more Vinny because giantbomb is lacking in Vinny content right now. I would be down for a podcast with them but i wonder how the structure of the show would be. I often feel like Vinny and Alex are two opposite forces of nature that make magic happen or cancel each other out. I would love for them to have someone else mix it up if they do a podcast or get a little more creative with the format.

Granted as a second hand user of a xbox one (my friend's xbox one) I don't really think its worth buying a system over. It's great fun but not a system seller. If you have some other games lined up to play on xbox one (Halo collection) than sunset overdrive may be the tipping point.

So did anyone pick this up? I almost did but then saw there was already $10 DLC, so I decided to wait for some more impressions and a possible holiday sale.

Yeah I have put 20 hours or so into it and i think its a great game. If you like animal crossing with a bit more rpg elements, it will be up your ally. I would also add that Multiplayer is awesome in this game. If you have someone to play with and break up the different life styles with its great fun.

@cateblya: I did not have too much of a problem with the backtracking and i would also agree it falls in the lines of skyrim with the number of quests you will get from random people. The key for me is when you get into the swing of things you will be working on several things while questing or backtracking so it does not seem like a pain.

The game is also really great about letting you warp back to town or your life master. Many of the knights on guard can warp you to the start or end of a dungeon or enemy area. I like to give a special nod to the story and characters because i find it really well done in a charming kind of way. Props to the localization team because the writing is pretty great in this game. Light and fluffy sure, but i have had many laughs from the story.

I dig it, like the mix of a cooler head in the bomb crew now that brad is host. Also yeah the open minded opinion on games is great which is missed from drew and vinny.

@dagas: They really just want that top spot this holiday season so they can gain some traction in mind share.

It's very much the same has how fondly people think of golden eye. It set the standard for shooters on consoles at that time. Halo set how online shooters should work and created that connected environment when it came to shooters on consoles. I think its something that may be lost picking it up now given how many of these things have become standards.

Was watching streams of this and it maybe half dark souls half god of war. Seems pretty cool like the sound of weapons and armor clashing.

I'm sure they will get around to doing it.
