It took about sixty seconds to sell me on this, so I had a good three minutes to wonder what the hell he's doing with all that whey protein. I'm no fitness nut, but that seems like too much, right?

3 bucks is nothing(can't even buy a can of coke with that in this country), so yeah. I'll probably buy it.

One of my favorite things in life is taking hours-long, blisteringly-hot hotel room showers while drinking cold beer. Trust me on this. (Also, I wish I had a Vita so I could support these folks.)

Tim Rogers was the only reason I visited Kotaku for years. It is great to see him on Giant Bomb in some form.

Done the shower beer thing. Once I jumped from a hot tub, into and right out of a pool, and back into a hot tub. Then cracked and drank a beer. That feeling is pretty intense. Of course there is the risk of cramping and drowning in the pool. Also a chance of your body going into shock when you step back in the hot tub. Or having the hotel manager on duty throw you and your friends out in the middle of the night. Other than that...

Is it just me, or did Tim Rogers get younger?

I hate Kotaku, but Tim seems okay. And that tip at the end has truly changed my life.

Okay, I will buy the damn game, but only because now getting drunk also gives me raisin-toes. That is pretty awesome.

He has grey hairs in this video. So I don't think his fountain of youth is working all that hot.

Emailed this trailer to vita-owning friend at work an hour ago. He just walked in with the game loaded on his vita and handed it to me to play. It's really good!

No I fell for the Leviathan: Warships and Serious Sam: DD marketing. Never again. We both know who the REAL monsters are. Tim and Eric.

All those jerks out there saying that the Vita was a waste of money. When proud Vita owners got Wake Up Club, some of the haters were silenced but many still lingered. Now, this game will prove that the Vita is THE console to own BOOM

Maybe if he released it on a platform that had an actual user base, he could make more money.

That was a delightful advertisement for a portable video game. I think I will spend the necessary funds to obtain it.

Speaking of Playstation Mobile block-matching puzzle games that one can play on their Vita, I bought a game on there recently called Yu-Nama: The Puzzle that is also good (and was around the same price). It has the same characters/art-style/music as the weird PSP series What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord? but the gameplay is completely different. You match blocks to evolve creatures, and can move them around when falling to set up some crazy combos. Pretty fun.

You can never have too much protein.

Unless you get kidney failure. Then you probably had too much protein.

Ten or eleven years ago Tim Rogers gave me a Blue Hearts cd and at the time it completely blew my fifteen year old noggin. Good times.

We're talking about a guy that considers God Hand the best game ever made. Not that there is anything wrong with that game or that it is a bad game, but I'm just saying... he likely got a phat stack of cash to stick to the Vita side of things.

@truthtellah: you might have a vita soon, because there will be a bunch of hot games that might justify purchasing.

if sony hadn't sent me a vita for free, i totally would be buying one around the end of this year, myself.

heh. You know, it is a possibility. The Vita does seem to be getting some decent titles, and I'm probably going to wait a year or so to get the new consoles. So, the Vita might just be a holiday purchase. I'm rather happy with my 3DS for mobile gaming, but a Vita with more indie games like this and Tearaway might just make getting it an eventuality. We shall see!

Stock up when it's on sale (added bonus of making your kitchen look like a shitty GNC).

After careful consideration I've decided that Sony needs to hire this guy to sell the PSVita.

Seems like it's not available on the Vita PS Store in Sweden (or the rest of Europe either, I guess?).
