Matt Rorie's a really weird dude. And I miss his presence dearly.

A very close tie between Skyrim and Dead Island. I continued to play and enjoy Skyrim throughout 2012, but I didn't play Dead Island until 2012, and I loved every moment of it. So I think, in a sense, Dead Island is a 'truer' 2012's 2011 GOTY for me, since I didn't actually play it in 2011.

Now knowing that Far Cry 3 is Jeff's GOTY and hearing the guys react to it in today's recap... I dunno, I feel like it might actually have a shot.

If there's not a CSI parody starring none other than Vincent Caravella, I'm calling such bullshit.

Edit: And theeeere's the police procedural.

I thought it was awesome and the kool aid was delicious, it was the squeeze ones in the plastic bottles, none of that powder shit get the fuck out with that nonsense.

I was going to follow you for this comment, but when I went to press the button, I found I was already following you. This does not come as a surprise to me.

Be really sickeningly nice to her. No, seriously. Trust me on this one.

@Ben_H: I expected Laguerta to go, too. But definitely not by Deb. And definitely not while Dexter's standing there in his butcher get-up. The butcher digs still unsettle me, actually. I think they should go and show him dismembering and doing the dirty clean up work to drive home that he's a god damn monster. Maybe they did and I just repressed it.

Nah, they've never shown it. I agree, that would be some powerful imagery. It's easy to think of Dexter as the good guy in the show when all we see him do is stab bad guys in the chest. Nice, quick, (relatively) clean, and easy. Nothing too disturbing about that. It's when you actually stop to imagine him chainsawing the bodies into pieces, bagging them up, cleaning up the blood, all with a serene smile on his face like he's doing some sort of fucked up, macabre yoga that what he is really sends shivers down your spine.

I'm curious as to if they'll continue to take him down the path of becoming a total irredeemable monster in the final season, since they've taken it to a point where there really is no going back now. This is the first season since either 2 or 4 where I feel like there's been honest to god character development that they can't just sweep under the rug to return to the status quo. They've committed to this, and I'm excited to see it through.

EDIT: Just rewatched the first episode of the series. They do in fact show Dexter finishing up after a kill. Just a brief flash of it, putting a dismembered leg in to a trash bag amidst a bloodied room of cellophane and plastic sheeting, but it's nothing too explicit. Not the actual act of cutting up the body, at least.

So...I wonder how long FFXV is going to take....

Never mind that, versus XIII still needs to get out of the pipe, but Nomura's like wait to see more at a later time plz.

I guarantee you that Versus XIII is just going to be rebranded as XV

And when it is rebranded XV, we will find out it is actually VII-2, because VII-2 is (not, but it is the Japanese Curve Ball logic) 7 1/2 and 7 1/2 times 2 is 15.

Well, that fuckin happened.

Also I think this episode had as much Dex-Doakes interaction as the first two seasons combined.
