I wonder if it's tomorrow as in today on the east coast.

Regardless, can't wait.

EDIT: Guess I can wait ha. I've been gone so long I've forgotten I'm not a subscriber anymore.

@cjmabry: Dave probably hasn't gone to sleep yet, so I think it's pretty safe to say that he means about ten hours from now when he's back in the office.

@snarekick: There were two subscriber-only streams where Dave showed some stuff, but I think only one of them was archived.

You should probably specify that this is for members only.

have they said lately the stuff about avatars? I remember hearing it once like 6 months ago but I've never heard anything beyond that, considering the backlash from people

When did the last Quest go live, anyway? Early 2011? At this point, it's more of a vestigial anecdote than a proper working system. I would feel sad about losing Quests if they had actually been kept alive in the first place. I got my First like two years ago, though, so no problems there.

As for the avatars... They are nice, but inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. It's not like they are customized for each review, so if you've seen each one once, then you've seen them all. I'm certainly not going to dismiss this new redesign of the whole website for just these two things.

I don't know anything about websites, do they push updates when traffic is lowest? If so I reckon another hour or two to get America to sleep right?

Quote from Jeff : Anyway, as others have said, we're discontinuing trophy/achievement support with the launch of the new site. My hope is that we'll be able to get it back in there at some point down the line... hopefully with something that doesn't break every time Microsoft or Sony changes something on their backend.

looking forward to see what they have been cooking

hope they fix my stupid minor problem with the site. its really not an issue but i really wish they would divide some of the vids in sub categories. e.i endurance run in to each subfolder and the DP one in to two one with brad and ryan and one with jeff and vinny. same goes with pretty much every other categories

more specific

subscriber

tnt, jar, wiskey media hour, breaking brad, and so one

endurance run

chrono trigger, persona, deadly premonition

brad and ryan, jeff and vinny

features

i love mondays, mailbag, BLLL, and so on

you get the point by now. and im really not complaining its just my fake ocd acting up when i look at it

I want to say that's not true, but I'm too lazy to prove it. Edit: Rock Revolution was the one I was thinking of, but if you sort by lowest scored reviews, Jeff has about five one stars. Turns out I wasn't quite too lazy, but it was a close call.

But with my quote I was pointing out that may as well have written "If you've seen them all, then you've seen them all." I thought that was funny.

Wait.. so one star Vinny has never been used? Holy cow...
