@tennmuerti: I haven't played it, but from the way it looks from recent videos they seem to have come a long way. When that was first release it barely classified as a game, but now it looks pretty awesome. Essentially a modern Fallout or Fallout 2.

Just wondering if we are going to see anything about Wasteland 2 on the site. I know Jeff said on a UPF that he was downloading Wasteland 2 and they might be doing something later in the week, so I'm guessing an Unfinished or something? The game officially comes out on September 19, so I'm not sure if they would want to do an Unfinished now or just wait a month for a proper Quick Look of the game upon release.

Is anyone else looking forward to Wasteland 2 or is it just me?

I doubt they would do another GTA so soon, so my vote goes to Red Dead. I would have said another LA Noire, but considering what happened with Team Bondi after that game came out, I'd be surprised if we saw another one of those any time soon. I think if they were going to do another Bully we would have seen or heard something about it by now. A new Midnight Run would be cool but I'm not sure if that would be as interesting as it was way back when.

And of course there is always the mythical "new IP" - I guess we'll just have to wait and see on that one, eh?

@elko84: not sure if that was a jab at truck drivers in the military but those dudes roll pretty heavy as driving on roads in combat zones these days is pretty dangerous...

Yeah dude. A lot deaths and serious injuries were from roadside ambushes and IEDs. Not sure if it is still like that now, but I know that was some serious shit in Iraq at one time. Those Motor T guys and gals have their work cut out for them. Running convoys is serious business.

Sorry dude. I totally know what that feels - I've had to say goodbye to 4 dogs, 3 cats and 2 birds over the last 20 years. It never gets any easier and you'll never replace the ones you've lost but it does get better. If you can, give another animal a home and the love it deserves. Something my family has been doing the last few months is fostering. I don't know if you are in the US but I know that a lot of animal shelters like the Humane Society are overstocked with kittens and puppies from the breeding season over the spring and summer and they usually don't have room for them all. They let you take them home (usually when they are around 4-6 weeks old) and give you the supplies to feed and take care of them. Once they hit about 8 weeks you take them back to the shelter and they put them up for adoption (or you can keep them if you want). It's really cool because you can help nurture and take care of them but it doesn't cost you anything but time. Over the last 3 months we've fostered 10 kittens, and we'll be getting more in about 2 weeks. It's something you should look into if you have the time, if you want.

I think why people have sided with the PS4 is that Microsoft totally screwed themselves at E3 with all of the used games and Kinect nonsense. They totally lost any good-will they had with people. Add to the the PS4 being slightly cheaper and slightly more powerful, I think it's kinda hard for most people to justify and Xbox One over a PS4. Add to that the games as well - I think PS4 has more to offer, and I think their exclusive titles like Uncharted hold more weight than what Microsoft is offering. To me it seemed like the two things that Microsoft was really betting on as system sellers were Titanfall and Watch Dogs. Titanfall came out and was gone within a few weeks and didn't sell nearly as much as anyone hoped, and Watch Dogs came out and totally flopped. Everything Microsoft had for this year was just totally ripped out from under them. It's kinda sad actually.

Like Jeff said on the bombcast *paraphrasing* "Sony walked in and brought a fucking knife like you wanna go? You wanna go son? and Microsoft was in the corner going please, please stop hurting me!"

@spaceinsomniac: Yeah, I forgot where I read it, but I saw a story a few hours ago that said that one of the Ferguson officers was identified and he was receiving death threats. He and his family were put in protective custody. So yeah, releasing anyones name at this point is a bad idea. That'd be just asking for someone to show up and try to hurt them. The name will be released in time, but now with things running so hot that would be the worst thing anyone could do.

Like I said before, keep in mind that the FBI was JUST getting involved as of yesterday. They've barely had any time to start investigating yet. Calm down and stop asking for the information - nobody is going to hear anything for at least another few days, if not a few weeks. Until we what's up for real everything else is just speculation and hyperbole.

@reverendk: GREAT link. I was about to post that if the discussion got any deeper on the subject. Gunfights and defensive shootings are extremely chaotic and happen extremely fast, so you don't really have as much time to think as you do act... You just need to hope you make the right decisions at the right time. That's the hard part.
