RIP Ryan Davis. I don't think it's hyperbolic to say that you changed my life, how I think about the world, and shaped my very sense of humor. I never met you, but you seemed like an awesome dude, and were there every single week for years to make me laugh, even during a really bad time in my life. Hearing the Bombcast was the highlight of my week during a pretty dark time for me, because it always made the world seem a little bit less bleak. You're missed, man. You really are.

This is shocking. I saw the headline over on Kotaku this morning just after waking up, and I thought for sure there had to be some mistake.

I've listened to Ryan in some capacity either though the latest Bombcast, old Bombcasts, Quick Looks, or something else on the site, almost every day for the past 4 or 5 years. RIP Ryan, my thoughts and prayers go out to the rest of the GB team.

Bill (L4D)
The Milkman (Psychonauts)
Garrus, Tali, Mordin, Wrex... Pretty much any of the cool characters from Mass Effect (Mass Effect)
Kenny (The Walking Dead)

I agree with the idea that the guy who says "Commander" in XCOM should be the dealer.

BioShock is a terrific game, with a terrific story, and one of the best settings in video game history.

BioShock 2 is, in my opinion, pretty terrible. The combat was improved, yes, but the story was dull and uninspired, and the level design and environments (save for the amusement-park thing, and the Little Sister bit) were ultra-boring. I really kind of hate the sequel.

Infinite looks good, though.

Journey. I'd give it a "Very Good Out Of Ten."

Seriously though, 5/5. Thankfully, I never lost MY buddy.

Well yeah, pretty much all of the consoles I've ever bought. I bought my Game Boy because I wanted to play Pokemon, I bought my N64 because I wanted to play Zelda and Mario, I bought my Gamecube because of Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion, I bought my PS2 because... Huh... Why did I buy a PS2? Kingdom Hearts? Maybe? I bought my DS for Pokemon, I bought my Wii for Super Paper Mario and Mario Galaxy, I bought my PS3 for InFamous and LittleBigPlanet, and I bought my 3DS for Super Mario 3D Land.

It depends on the franchise, how much the newer games tie in to the older ones, and how good the original installments are/hold up (also how many of them there are).

For example, I played Deus Ex before Deus Ex: Human Revolution, because I had heard good things, and wanted to have that frame of reference.

On the other hand, I started The Witcher, wasn't really loving how it played, so I skipped the rest of it and went straight into The Witcher 2, which I really liked. Or, with something like Fallout or Half-Life, I jumped into the newer games, which are mostly removed from the original fiction, and then went back and played the originals later because I had fallen so in love with the games.

Ok, sure, I loved Moon, and The Source Code was pretty good, even if the ending didn't make much sense.

spoiler, none of source code made sense. :V

It was a fun, soft sci-fi thriller until the end, but in the last ~15 minutes it started contradicting the rules it set up earlier on how the "time travel" actually worked.

Not sure what you thought didn't make sense other than the end, I'd love to hear it.

There wasn't any time travel so it didn't really contradict itself.

According to the end of the movie it really was time travel after all though.

A mall nearby me had, at one point, 3 Gamestops in it at once. It wasn't even a very big mall.

So yeah, maybe they could stand to close some redundant locations.
