I haven't done anything in a long time, but I just wanted to say:

1.) I love seeing you guys incorporate the community with stuff like this.

2.) I dig what I see in your portfolio @humanity. I would happily wear a GB shirt in that style :D

Isn't The Initiative supposed to be MS' big "quadruple A" studio with nothing but the best of the best talent developing the game? Yet they have to bring in a partner studio for help? Don't get me wrong, I actually like a lot of Crystal Dynamics games, but this move is...strange.

@rorie: Phew, that's what I figured. Thanks for clarifying! Feel free to lock this thread. I wasn't trying to rile some folks up. I got my answer and am good to go now :)

@efesell: I really should start trying out all the characters more. I've admittedly just stuck to Alphen up to this point, and let the Auto AI handle the other party members.

I've never played a Tales game before, but the reviews and demo footage caught my eye on this so I decided to give it a shot. And I gotta say, I'm surprised how much I'm digging it. It admittedly started a bit slow, but they do a good job of layering on more and more to the combat, and it continued to grow on me. Same goes for the story and characters as well.

I do find some of the voice acting and dialogue to be a bit spotty (particularly Rimwell's). Do folks recommend switching over to the Japanese VAs?

It's been a month since the last episode. I assume the show is just on a brief hiatus since Danny was away for a couple of weeks? I'd be pretty bummed if the show was quietly discontinued without any heads up. I know some folks weren't into an endurance run of a games/series that already got lots of coverage in the site's past, but I was enjoying the semi-sentimental Tamoor/Danny ramblings while they played. :(

The settings pages of the Xbox UI are a rat's nest and probably my least favorite thing to interact with on the console.

Hopefully it's all gravy from here though for ya. It's an excellent console IMO. Enjoy! What games do you think you'll play first?

I am very interested in some of the games shown at the event (Spider-man, Wolverine, KOTOR, and God of War) but it's also hard to get too hyped up when the majority of them were cinematic trailers for games that are seemingly years away.
