I do not always think what Patrick writes is especially interesting, the retweets really do lack any sort of context, and I don't always agree with the opinions he presents, but Worth Reading is still my faveroute part of this website.

If you're the sort of person to post some tired kneejerk complaint about either it, or the author, perhaps you're some kind of idiot.

Also, that shit about Depression Quest is just disgusting. What the fuck is wrong with people?

I don't think I've ever bothered to turn my electronics off, and I doubt that I'm the only one on any flight I've been on.

I can't be the only person who can see that the antichamber email is someone pretending they couldn't solve the first 'puzzle' for a laugh. Makes me sort of sad that it was replied to with a condescending email that somehow took it seriously.

There is plenty of great multiplayer-only games in my steam library I've fired up and played with bots, but for me the bottom line is I really don't have any interest in playing with other people online. While I live in Australia, and have a high ping as a crippling handicap, the bottom line is it feels like poor way to spend my time - versing strangers online, who usually have no interest in talking. I'd much rather play something single player that has a story and an 'end'.

Plus I'm just not very competitive - why cant we all just get along?

Just an update - I'm still not able to get any of the videos onto my iPhone, but for some reason the Deadpool quick look from 25/06/13 went on no problem.

(actually to clarify, I have downloaded the Lttle Dew quick look, which wouldn't sync, but haven't downloaded anything after the Company of Heroes 2 quick look, which also wouldn't sync. Deadpool is the only exception I've found thus far.)

You guys have other shit going on right now though.. it's cool. Just thought that might offer a clue to a seemingly isolated problem.

Broadly speaking with genetics, there is always people either immune or highly resistant to just about anything - that being how evolution works. I figured that was the case with Ellie, but some of the later collectables did seem to say that the fungus had mutated in her. I don't exactly know how that works, considering that section she walked though all the spores, but really, I don't think it was important.

I usually White Knight any game that will let me, and I managed to sneak my way through the whole hospital without any fatalities (other than the one in the cutscene). I got to the operating theatre, and tried to scare the guy with the scalpel with a warning shot, but it didn't seem to phase him, so he ended up getting the ol' scalpel to the neck. Ignored the other two, and ran the hell out of there.

I don't think that there would have been anything to gain from killing Ellie for her brain, and by that point, 'saving humanity' seemed a bit too little too late. By the end of it all, I'm not even sure what Ellie herself would have wanted to have happened.

Hey Rorie, thanks for the reply,

I have in the last few days updated to 6.1.3, just to see if that would fix the issue, but no dice. If there was some sort of beta for 7.0, then I'm not aware of it (and kinda reluctant to try updating to).

For what it's worth, there is one other video podcast I sync to my phone, and that has not been affected in the same way anything from giantbomb has. Also, I am still able to watch the podcasts on my desktop computer without problem. I'm really not sure what other information I can supply about either my iPhone or computer, but if you can think of anything the engineers might want to know I'll go looking.

Damn. I fail at noticing the topic with 17 replies already posted.

Wheres that delete thread button..

It was only by chance I saw it hidden away in the 'Games/Browse Games' menu, but there it was - "Games With Gold". Normally I don't click the garbage cluttering the screen, but I decided to have a look what it was all about, and there it was - a free downloadable copy of Fable III. Good to see Microsoft adopting the best reason to have a PS+ account.

According to the Learn More box, there will be two new games every month (one every half-month). I have no idea if this is the first one or not, since no topics have been started about it, but there you go. Don't miss out, just because you were never told!

Bumping my own thread, like a boss.

I'm assuming that no one else has encountered this issue, given the silence.

Regardless.. here is more information: I'm using an iPhone4, on iOS6.0

Here's what you get if you click any of the flagged videos:
