Especially this. I was listening to an episode of Waypoint Radio and Patrick keeps saying ah-toe-mah-ta over and over, then says Automaton flawlessly. IT'S THE SAME WORD. CMON, PATRICK!

It's au-TOM-ah-tah. I too, have no idea why so many otherwise reasonable people are just saying it wrong. This is a real word, and is the plural form of another word that some of those same people pronounce correctly: automaton.

I've lived my entire life believing this word was pronounced Ah-tom-ah-tah, but since this game has picked up traction I have heard so many educated people insist upon calling the game Ah-tah-mah-tah. From Giantbomb, to IGN and even Austin Walker and Patrick Klepick over on Waypoint, I've heard people say this pronunciation and go uncorrected (with the exception of Vinny correcting Alex).

My question is this: Am I wrong? Is the word Ah-tom-ah-tah or Ah-tah-mah-tah?

I am looking to buy a game to play through before Persona 5 hits in NA. I'm torn between this and for Honor. Honestly any Platinum game would immediately win but the idea that this is from a long franchise which I have 0% experience with. Will the story or characters be completely inaccessible for someone jumping in now, or is it possible to run with it for the love of the game?

Thanks for any advice!

I'm really surprised to see so much DA:I shit talking. I haven't really paid attention to the reception of it, but I thought it was awesome. Not perfect, no. But really fun and I had a great time with it.

If you listen to advice on either the Beastcast or the Bombcast and think "that's the worst advice I've ever heard" then there are 2 possibilities: A) It's obviously a joke or B) Dan is speaking.

The general consensus is that the world would love a new Half Life game.

The world thinks it would love a new Half-Life game. The non-snarky/sarcastic answer is simple: it will never live up tot he hype. It's been one of the most elusive and rumored games for over a decade now. Valve would take a massive risk with a Half-Life 3. As others have pointed out their making massive income from Steam, Dota 2, CS:GO and TF2, so it's really not a risk they need to take. Why risk your brand over a single-player game that has a huge chance to be a perceived failure (even if it isn't) when you don't have to.

At one point does something stop being a poster and start being print art?

I am just curious what time period were people born and how old when they saw the OG Ghostbusters? I was born in mid-90's and reasonable enjoyed the first movie. Kinda interested if nostalgia plays a part in how you perceive the movie.

I was born in 90 and was in my late teens before I saw the first movie. It's easily one of my top 5 favourite comedies even without the nostalgia factor. Haven't seen this one yet, not sure if I will. It was never the Ghostbusters world that made that movie for me, but rather the chemistry between the cast members.

I think there's a difference between trying out some of his interests and "modeling your life" after him. No, I would never model my life after him. I have to say though, I am extremely envious of his metabolism; I'm probably a little bit lighter than Dan, but that's with watching what I eat and cardio every day, not full packages of Taco Bell/Red Vines and 10+ sodas a day...

Just remember that a skinny person who eats garbage is still unhealthy.
