GB guys should reach out to rockstar and get their own official crew like IGN/G4/Gameinformer/Gamespot, hell, even a bunch of random GameStop franchises have. Those things don't have a player cap. I mean, just ask whoever set up the Gamespot one how to go about it. Don't even have to leave their building.

I tried a bit, and from the choices given it seems that the writer might know someone who's depressed, or did some research. So that's a plus. But honestly, who in any mind wants to play games like this? A depressed person plays game for their escapism factor. This game, if it's close enough will only make them more depressed, and if it's too far away will just make them upset that now people are gonna think they feel this way. As for a non-depressed person, is this supposed to make them change the way they treat others with depression? If so, all that's gonna do is push those people further into depression, or cause them to lash out at the person in anger.

Depression sucks, and some of the choices listed in this game are spot on. But it doesn't matter if someone is depressed or not, you should treat them like any other. This game is just hurtful to the people it's trying to help.

Why are there only 8 quick looks with Dave, Vinny and Drew in them? This is a travesty, and I demand the creation of more.

@downtime58: Higher for about half of them, yeah. But lower for Dirt 2.

@coafi:I like it, better on PC of course. But it's a fun little action heavy rpg. More Deus Ex 2 then 1, but still good.

If "used games" includes "rented games" then yes, that would stop me from buying it. I've rented hundreds of games over the life on my 360, and only purchased a few dozen. If the PS4 lets me rent games and the new Xbox doesn't, I know what I'll be buying, no matter the price difference between them. If neither of them let me rent games, well I'll just use that money I've put aside for them and upgrade my computer a bit further, and earlier then I had planned.

I don't care about the Gamespy shut down one way or the other, but this sucks for 1up. I never actually read any of their articles, but I used to love listening to Active Time Bauble, Legendary Thread, In This Thread, 1UP FM, 4 Guys 1UP, 1Up Yours, The Oddcast. And of course, their best podcast every, GFW Radio.

Guess I'm gonna have to download a bunch of episodes before the site goes down.
