but I imagine coinciding it with the new Star Wars movie is a part of the plan.

I guarantee this is around the time it'll release, it just makes the most sense, especially for EA and their army of marketing people.

Thanks for the notes. I'll pass this along to an engineer and see what we can do.

Thanks duder, though I'd be worried if they weren't aware of its current state, it's been this way for months.

Oh my fucking god that was amazing, they both have a decent set of pipes on them as well, especially the actor playing marlene.

@benny: I think it's kind of weird that it's gotten to the point where were scared to mention a feature we might like in fear that the staff might see it and try to spite us by not doing it.

I think the truth of the matter is that they don't want it to be forced. There's always been a sort of random hacked together feel about GB content and I think the CBSi buyout really put a damper on that aspect of Giant Bomb.

So I wanted to post this in the other thread but I literally can't find it and have no clue how the search works.

Anyway Vinny was tweeting about maybe doing a Daily Dark Souls sort of thing and then I don't remember where but someone from staff said it would maybe start as early as Monday. Not sure if that was one of those sarcastic replies or a real one?

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

No idea but I worry that bringing stuff up like this all the time makes it less likely to happen.

And yeah, GB's search function is total garbage and has been since the redesign.

Guys, it's always, always, always profitable during the first week and everyone knows it, expect triple priced PS4s on Ebay a few days before the launch of the console. It sucks but if you really do want one you should pre-order it. Even if you don't when it comes to the launch just cancel the pre-order. No harm done.

Just don't jinx it and throw out any antiquated terms relating to 'stamina marathons'

This guy was just as important to the rise of Nintendo as Miyamoto. Everyone should treat it as such and hold both in revere.

Indeed. RIP to a true industry legend. Most of us wouldn't be here, without him. Shame he probably won't get much coverage in general media.

he's recognized for sure http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-24160150

very sad to hear he has passed but I'm really really glad he got to accomplish what he did. Everyone has those unforgettable NES, SNES and N64 moments that might not have been without his influence on the company.
