Patrick, you're a good writer but you shouldn't be writing about things you don't know or care about. Why isn't Brad writing this up?

Thanks for typing up the whole conversation, it was definitely all worth reading. I love developer interviews and getting into the process of making games. As a guilty pleasure, I also love reading people talking shit about scummy free to play games.
Awesome, Patrick. Your stories about game communities and the people in them are always my favorite.
It looks pretty weird to me, but they're totally fine with people using an xbox controller or mouse and keyboard so really who cares? It'll work for people who like it and everyone else will just use what they want. I really hope it turns out to be cool because hey, new input, it's been a while.
Getting to play as a different special operations group from each of the different races would be so great, that's what I'd like to see.
Salarians: Go around doing all sorts of spying/sabotage/information warfare.
Asari: Lead squads on tactical strikes around the galaxy.
Turians: Take part in huge battles with ship to ship combat.
Drell: Skink around urban environments tracking and murdering motherfuckers.
Humans: Sort of did them already.
Krogan: Punch and/or shoot everything until it stops moving. Story reasons for fights are optional.
Elcor: Stand around and look at stuff, I don't know. Maybe skip these guys.
Ah god damn it. This already exists, It's called wireless HDMI and it works perfectly fine today. Just hook it up into your desktop, then your TV and then you have steam on your TV without moving the gigantic box.
It costs way too much as it is now. I'm not going to spend $150 - $200 for that.
