There is cool stuff in there, it's just directing people to the right stuff. It's never going to be for everyone, but they're taking it in a kind of meta-game MMO direction which is cool. There are full on shooters in Home now with persistent unlocks and ranks and stuff: Sodium One and Novus Prime. They're both good examples of where Home is heading (they've got a spy game coming out soon I believe).
 
The problem is, people are still caught up in the "HOME IS SO SHITZORZ!" that they refuse to give it a second chance. I appreciate it that the concept's not for everyone, but to say it's not improved is so wrong.
 
Examples of games in Home that people don't even know are there:
 

    
    
  
But it's totally just a big chat room, right guys?

The Shoot and Time Crisis are both fine. If you're actively looking for a light-gun shooter you will enjoy both of them.

" God of War III is no where near the best looking game. But are these award based on quality, style or both? If it's style then maybe. "

I disagree. Take issue with the art-style, theme or concept all you like, God Of War III was hands-down the best looking game released in 2010. That it wasn't even mentioned was pretty disappointing to be honest.
 
Then again, I suppose there's an argument for a game being forgotten... Still. C'mon. God Of War III is ridiculous.
 
(Kirby probably deserved to win though.)

I think what's more frustrating is not that he doesn't like it (that's fine), more that his criticisms seem to stem from other people. All he really needs to say is, "I started playing it but couldn't get into it. If you [rest of the crew] feel really strongly about it then I'll trust your judgement."
 
He just doesn't seem in a position to argue against the game, which is the most frustrating thing at hand here.

Came here to say: GOD OF WAR III. That is all.

I like Weekend Confirmed. It's Garnett Lee's podcast. A lot, lot more serious than the Bombcast, but I think they do a much better job actually COVERING games. I love the Bombcast, but I never feel like it satisfies my needs for ACTUAL video game discussion. Weekend Confirmed has a good balance I think, though it can get a bit TOO serious in places.
 
If you're interested in PlayStation, I also like Podcast Beyond and Official PlayStation Magazine UK. Good balance between humour and actual game discussion. Obviously, they are PlayStation only though.

I bet you they all pass one-million units LTD. EASILY.
 
Besides, I'm not sure it really matters. All are going to be pretty amazing games. You missed out Resistance 3 by the way! :)

I haven't tried it yet but I believe there's a 30-day trial anyway, so you don't need to spend any cash just yet. Check it out, though I imagine quality will be rough in this first week while interest is high and technical issues get ironed out.

In This Thread is a terrible, terrible podcast and I don't really like the 1Up staff's personalities -- HOWEVER -- it's horrible that these people lost their job. They were clearly informed, and just because their opinions didn't jive with my own doesn't mean they weren't good at their job.
 
Sad news. :(
