gPodder is what I use. It's strictly a podcast aggregator, I use Winamp to listen to the files on a PC. I don't think Winamp has a "save your place" option, though.

The highest stuff I sold was CS:GO stuff: A Stattrak FAMAS Doomkitty for $3 when the Arms Deal update hit, Operation Bravo cases when they were new and selling for a buck a piece, even sold older crates like series 1 and Esports 2013 which went for about a dollar during one of the major tournaments.

I was holding on to some trading cards, but after realizing I don't like Red Orchestra 2, Rise of the Triad or Dead Island that much to craft the badge, I decided to part with them and make some small amount of change here and there. Problem is most stuff is like 5 cents or less, so unless you find something rare like a foil card, it's probably better to hold onto them. Then again, I have CS:GO Dreamhack and Katowice stuff that's going for $6-20 each on the marketplace...

Dumb question: Has anyone archived the Twitch archives of Jeff's individual streams? While most of them were "dumb" drive-by commentaries, I don't want us to lose him playing Last Ninja and trying to beat it for 4 hours. Not sure if the other bombers had dedicated Twitch channels with old stuff like that.

Adding myself to the "notifications haven't worked in months" pile. Most recent notification is a blog entry from late May. Oddly have the same exact problem at GameSpot.

I wonder why the notifications are broken on both sites.

Well, he did do an advertisement for Sega's online service back in the Dreamcast days, so I'm not surprised he's still big into games.

I usually get games after their release in complete/GOTY editions anyway, so all of this lame approach to pre-order stuff ain't gonna mean much. Especially since Arkham City GOTY ended up getting all that content in the same package anyway.

Basically, if this is their way to get people to pre-order, I'm more than happy to pick the game up complete months down the line to combat this bullshit. Others should follow suit.

I wonder if NBCUniversal has a plan to rerererereboot G4. Then again, I'm on DirecTV which axed the G4 network a year or two ago, so I'm not losing anything.

Man, people are just now finding out about this? I remember watching it when it was new back in 2005. Hell, I covered the same thing shortly after the Xbox One announcement. It's here if you prefer more words and dumber humor.

At this point, the only thing that bothers me are ads you can accidentally mouse over and take up part of the webpage/start blaring a loud trailer in your ears, and video ads before/during a video, especially ones as long or longer than certain videos. If we could get away from the former and shift the latter to having them at the end of videos, then I'd probably stop using AdBlock Plus.

Otherwise, my policy is "keep it on unless they say turn it off." Giant Bomb is one example, and more should do the same.

He gave Vanquish a 5/10. He's not God's gift to anything ;p I'm aware reviews are opinions but when your main arguement against the game is not being able to utlilize the mechanics given to you then you shouldnt be playing action games let alone reviewing them.

Anyway, on the subject of the lastest twit drama i'm more surprised Marcus Beer acknowledged that Annoyed Gamer isnt very good. Personally I dont mind him on Invisble Walls but Annoyed Gamer is fucking terrible. And Phil Fish is acting like a drama queen, but I guess not everyone revels in people throwing childish insults at you over the internet.

Your counter-argument is "He disliked a game that I liked." That's a pretty weak way to discredit the guy. If I followed your mindset, I'd hate Alex because he gave Delta Force Xtreme a 7/10 when I hated it.

I could understand arguments like "Not a fan of his attitude," but to dislike him over a review score is dumb.
