    I thought murder was illegal in Cali? Because that is just what you witnessed, Sony stomped a mudhole in Microsoft and did not stop for a second, kept on stomping while the crowd cheered.

    This is not Sony vs Microsoft, this is You vs Big Corporations, and *you* just won.

      I understand the excitement because most people have had a good experience with Steam and everyone loves cheap games. I also understand people have grown tired of the Big 3 console makers because they all do shit that we sometimes shake our heads at.

      But it is as if nobody is thinking realistically about this.

      Valve =/= PC gaming, even tough alot of loyalists to Steam/Valve want to believe that. Some of the most popular games right now are not even on Steam, League of Legends, Blizzard games, most EA games, Minecraft and many more. This means that this console of theirs likely will not have any of these major titles that are associated with PC gaming of today. The catch is that the good stuff Steam does have, is already on the PC and better. What Counter Strike player do you think is going to want to sit down on his couch and play CS with a pad? Look at the numbers for CS:GO, game fell hard and people went back to the original. You think DOTA players want to fiddle around with it?

      Yeah Steam is great, most people reading this likely have 50-100+ games on Steam but how many of them do you actually play much at all? Everyone ive seen says the same thing, "i only play CS/TF2 and sometimes DOTA otherwise i barely play my games". Sure its anecdotal, but it seems people enjoy the idea of Steam (and thus this Steambox) more than the actual idea of playing games on it.

      Oh look, a cheap bundle, how can i say no to this!?? And then you proceed to never play any of these games again, at best you will boot them up once to set up the graphics configuration and never bother again.

      Go ahead, release this thing when its done and lets see how it does, as long as Valve protects themselves and dont invest too much into it.

        I speak for everyone when i say we want more Alex on Bombastica Fantastica! He actually talked about a game many people love, the AKI wrestling games.

        Please do more N64 and PS1 games, this has to be your era of expertise Mr. Navarro.

        Stuff like:

        Tony Hawk, Mortal Kombat, More wrestling games, some other "Xtreme" 90s sports games etc

          Really guys? Xcom? You know there were these games called Advance Wars on GBA and DS, they did turn based strategy better than Xcom both original and current. Walking Dead felt like a once in a generation experience, when this gen ends we will remember Super Mario Galaxy, Uncharted 2 and Walking Dead.

          Oh well, good show and i wish Vinny would press his case more he just accepts being pushed around =P, tough it was great having Alex there, i hope you have him next year too.

            I agree with Jeff here, you guys gave ME2 GOTY that year, you spoke highly of the game. Assassins Creed 2 was merely just praised for what it was and RE5 was loved only by Vinny and Brad.

            AC: Revelations wasent very good, the last AC game before 3. Mass Effect 2 was your GOTY as ive said.

            Thus ME3 is easily the most disappointing game, the only reason it did not "win" was because Brad was batting for it, had he played ME3 when it was launched he would be fuming at the game like the rest of the audience.

            GOTY will be a battle between X-Com and Walking Dead, maybe Farcry 3.

            Anyway was a great read and podcast, great job by all of the guys.

              First part is excellent, maybe the best stuff you guys have done in while. Jeff was fantastic

              Patrick playing TWD is perhaps the opposite, the absolute worst piece of video content you have done so far since Gran Turismo 5 infamous QL. Everybody is talking at the same time, constantly, non stop. What happened? Did you forget you were taping (highly doubt it) or did you think them mics would only pick up one or 2 guys talking? Gigantic mess, both Patrick and TWD deserve better.

              Ive been looking for people who view games the same way i do for a long time, in magazines in the 90s you never really found a writer who talked like you and your buddies did, it was too "professional" and phoney. When the internet broke out, everything was too staged, not enough reality for me.

              On YouTube there are too many kids trying to rip off AVGN, and that whole angry gimmick got tiring in 2009.

              I enjoy watching the guys just play games and talk, their E3 coverage, bombcasts, QLs and TNTs are highlights for me when it comes to entertainment.

              NBA 2k12 was GOTY last year, but sports games never win these things.

              Neither Skyrim nor SR3 deserved it, 3D Land is better than both

              I am baffled by people defending him, he is a likeable enough man but it is clear cut that he is a modern day con artist.

              I enjoyed Dungeon Keeper 2 as much as the next guy but the majority of games he has worked on were average at best, great ideas that just did not function.

              Maybe he should switch professions, focus on hyping games up, not actually having any hand in making them. I wanna see Peter on stage hyping the next Madden and FIFA up while he akwardly high fives some sports star on stage at E3
