Sweden (I live there), Finland, Norway, Israel, Jordan and I'll be going to Scotland next week.

I've mostly been to Finland to stock up on cheaper booze so I haven't experienced the country that much. Norway obviously have amazing nature. Israel was great for the history in Jerusalem and the same with Jordan because of Petra. And Wadi Rum in Jordan felt like a different planet since I'm used to mostly forest everywhere and long winters.

This thread just made me think of I how much i hate the Mass Effect-title. The most amazing games, but the name to me just sounds stupid.

Hotline Miami is a good'n. It evokes the setting and feel without coming right out and telling you what you're in for.

Was thinking of that title just as I heard read the title of this thread.

I love the pictures of games on the game box and i believe I kept every game box besides the 360 one (sent that back a couple of times with RROD), but I don't think it's worth keeping for the amount it takes up in pure space.

Sadly someone will most likely die in the next 6 months while trying to reenact a selfie near a moving vehicle.

I realize that the scenario is a bit different, but comparing this Q&A with the PAX panels makes a lot of the PAX panel questions so much more cringeworthy. The Q&As at PAX is still entertaining in a different way, but this was just really interesting all the way through.

Actually that goes for other panels at PAX actually. Most of the panels I've gone to at PAX are generally content specific and it's rare people ask dumb questions when it's not a general fan audience for a thing. For instance, even though it was Rich and Vinny at the Produced panel, everyone pretty much had a great question and it was on point to the topic. Since social issues are hard and inherently controversial, they're the only other type of panel where things can go a bit weird but overall it's mostly just been the Giant Bomb panel over the years that makes me dread Q&A.

I guess the positive spin is that in most other situations, Q&A is pretty decent if there's a topic focus or direction to the panel. If it's just a convening of fans, eh...

I have unfortunately not been to PAX myself, that stupid Atlantic Ocean in the way, but when you mention it i've seen a lot of other panels (specifically this year with the direct streaming) and you're probably correct. I mean the thing Jeff did at NYU didn't seem to be lacking of Giant Bomb fans when it came to the questioners, and it was some really interesting stuff there, but the talk or answering of questions from the moderator seemed a lot more focused then the usual PAX panel they've done.

What, you don't like it when someone talks about working at gamestop for 10 minutes, asks when there'll be more TANG, asks what greg kasavin has been up to, or tries to do a 'hilarious' live rick roll?

I regress. I completely forgot the kind of revolutionary question that got me to personally question my way of living and... DEAR GOD I had forgotten the Kasavin-question (the other ones I can't forget for different reasons). WTF?

@tdot: Hey, at least no one made an endurance run joke this year!

The irony in no one asking the question the year they actually was announcing a new one.

Really exciting for this game, saw it at PAX, and I just got in my pre-order for the sugar glass bottle and in-game donkey.
