    Just wanted to chime in and say that this is my favorite new feature/series on GB in quite a while. Love the structure, pacing, and the asynchronous co-op.

    What was the last great console exclusive game on a Sony platform? Uncharted 2? Am I forgetting anything? And if it was Uncharted 2, what was the last great one before that?

    Hasn't been a great year for games, in my opinion. Then again, I've had almost no time to play any. Personally, Alien: Isolation is my game of the year. Fantastic game, even if the last hour or so se...
