I'm curious to see if the "multiple versions of each character" means that they'll resolve killing most of the characters in MK9 with a bunch of multiverse hooey. (and I mean "hooey" in the best way... I like my MK stories to be silly and contrived)

That's pretty much what I'm thinking/hoping. I mean, they established JJ Abrams Star Trek style multiple timelines in MK9, so the natural next step for a franchise with this level of batshit crazy lore is to go full multiversity with this business. That'd be dope as hell.

Taswell Framework. Alternatively, Taswell2D, as it rolls off the tongue a little better.

Is the game bad or do you have poor tastes? :-p You probably like Dragon Age.

We're gonna fight, Dragon Age Origins was fantastic. And so was Skyrim. WHY IS EVERYONE SO WRONG ALL THE TIME, GAWD.

This is the most perfectest thing I have ever heard.

CBS bought Giant Bomb, Gerstmann was in fact fired from Gamespot back in the day over the Kane and Lynch review, Patrick Klepeck joined up, Patrick Klepeck moved back to chicago, Dave Snider left, Ryan Davis passed away, Vinny is moving to New York.

I think that's all the major shit.

You missed somebody.

In my world, Rorie has always been here.

@punkxblaze: tl;dr?

I dunno how long you've been gone, so I'm gonna summarize from like 2012 on.

I missed this website and stumbled back on it looking for Watch dogs news. It's been years and I was amazed I could log back in. I will never leave again. I hope some of the users in OT are still alive and not broken a neck or something.

You're... You should sit down, some shit has happened.

@death_unicorn: Maybe something like how Styles were handled with Dante in Devil May Cry 4, which was one of the few things I really liked about that game. Four cardinal elements, four D-Pad directions, each element has its own combos 'n shit. It wouldn't be that hard to pull off, conceptually, but it could be screwed up pretty easily in execution, I guess. Especially since licensed stuff tends to get the shovelware treatment.

No chance of that now.....

Or... is there an even BETTER chance of it? Okay, not the core bombcast, but a Vinny helmed Eastcast. KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE.

@tdot: You took all my feelings and put them into words for me. Alex is a cool guy and all but I mostly skip his content because I'm just not interested. Moving Vinny over to work with him does not excite me. It just makes me sad that he won't be involved in the content I enjoy any more.

This is just like when Patrick left. I loved his presence on the Bombcast and live shows. I barely keep tabs on what's going on with Patrick any more. I long for the old Whiskey Media days of yore.

Also, is it just going to be Jeff and Brad talking with a bit of Drew on the side for the Bombcast now? It was already feeling kind of slim after Patrick left.

Honestly, and this is coming from someone who was not previously that big a fan of Pat or Alex, if you haven't given their Bombin' the AM a shot, you should. It's not as funny as the Bombcast, but both guys work way better when they're not being shoehorned into a more comedic vibe. They have an unexpectedly good dynamic. Just my two cents.
