What does Colluctatio Cervus Reperio Excellantia mean?
 
Edit: Two firsts in a row. You can't touch that.
 
Edit 2: Video editing taken to new heights - great presentation there. I'm sad to announce though, that the best new character isn't Bayonetta according to the podcast.

Way to outright dismiss the SC2 singleplayer campaign. Then again, it is somewhat overrated.

Starcraft 2 is retarded. It's the same as the first game, and yes ive played through the whole thing, twice, and alot of multiplayer. It's the same game, and the story fucking sucks.

Podcast.  Much more fun to listen to them come to a conclusion then watch it revealed in less than a minute.  Plus the runners-up aren't here.

StarCraft 2 is good, but I very much prefer Civ V, to be honest. I prefer to build rather to destroy, so yeah... lol.
Also, Amnesia was this year's best game of the year, PC or otherwise (in my humble opinion, that is).

Everyone seems to be giving PC GOTY title to Civ 5. While it's indeed a wonderful and extremely addicting game, I think SC2 deserves the title waaaaaay more. It's a brand new game, not just improvement of the gameplay and graphics. Sadly, a portion of giantbomb community will likely attribute this as a bias due to Brad's fascination with the game. Oh well. Ignore the noise, right gentlemen?

Maybe if GT5 wins PS3 game of the year, it will finally get a "proper" quick look.

All four guys care so little about Gran Turismo so much they got Dave to do the review, it has as much chance of winning PS3 GOTY as Deadly Premonition has winning GOTY.
