SE3 is on sale for PS3 and 4 right now if you want to try it for cheap.

Me, I think ~$30 is right for a Sniper Elite game, but mostly because I don't play the MP at all.

RE7, but I tapped out right before the second location. I was more curious to see the item/content changes on Madhouse than anything. Still going to go back at some point and finish that run, though.

No time to do a list, so I'll just say that the My Brother My Brother And Me show is already among my favorites. It's getting kinda scary how good the McElroys are at everything they do.

I can't wait for this year's Thanksgiving Day parade, in which Drew makes a surprise appearance to blink at the crowds in person.

"Oh boy, there goes Snoopy!"

"Everybody loves Snoopy, Al! An American icon!"

"Indeed! And - hold on, is that - it is! Drew Scanlon himself, folks! Of Giant Bomb Dot Com and internet meme fame, it seems as though he's taking a page from Rick Astley!"

"Ahaha! He's giving the crowds his world-famous blink! Wonderful! And, oh - Look out, Drew! Coming up behind Drew Scanlon is what appears to be a Genome Soldier from the Metal Gear Solid franchise!"

"Drew's trying to snap his neck - oh, no, now he's crouching - now he's laying down... he's rolling back and forth... OH, he got 'im! Well done, Drew!"

"And here comes Santa!"

I like unboxing videos for informative reasons, hype reasons (I watched a number of PSVR unboxings while waiting for mine to arrive... just a fun way to build the excitement), and general inexplicable entertainment reasons.

Also, I'm not a fan of boxing, so it stands to reason that I would enjoy unboxing.

Dark is the one true path.

I prefer white text on black/gray background in general. Easy on the eyes, and there's a small tinge of nostalgia to it from the early days of internet when a ton of pages were white on black.

Also, maybe I'm crazy, but the light theme here seems way more eye-strainy than elsewhere. I could swear that the contrast is harsher here.

@gtb08: I'm kind of doing the same thing, playing through the games from the start, I'm nearly finished up with the REmake, but have no idea where I could pick up 2, as I only really have a PC and PS4. How did you go about playing through RE2?

There *is* a PC version of RE2, but the hoops you'd have to jump through to not only get it, but get it working, might not be worth it.

Your best bet, save for emulation, would honestly be to just get a PS1 and a copy of the game. Or even a PS2... might actually be even cheaper that way nowadays.

If I see that mountain over there, I'd like to go to it, but not every game needs to be a 100+hour journey either. There's not a damn thing wrong with linearity and a tight, 6-8 hour package. Open world isn't ruining games, but it is creeping in where it isn't needed from time to time.

What the what!?

That's on the same level as if Jeff himself were leaving. Granted, he's not one of the Core Four, but Drew is as integral to Giant Bomb's identity as anybody.

Godspeed, man. I look forward to your newfound meme fame landing you a role as Raiden in the eventual Metal Gear Solid movie.
