    I personaly didn’t like Bioshock 2 due to the story, but it was a good game…except the powers…the right combo made you overpowered (freeze skill + gas skill something ), so I just bashed my way through the game.
    also harrison, make a wii mod if you have the time and sell it as a unique console. I have a wii laptop mod idea and kinda need a spare wii to make tests and I would be glad to take it off your hands ( except it’n not pal ) :D

      I think people were more turned off on bioshock 2 because it and Riddick 2 waste start of games shoe hornig multiplayer to promote a market they have no business being in. I actually like the single player in both games but I can’t help but think they wasted so much assets on that aspect of gameplay.

      If zack isn’t going to play his Persona 4 I will buy it off him because I have been wanting to play it for a long time (as long as its the ps2 version because I am not ever buying a ps3)

      As much as I love the hiimdaisy comics I love the comic dubs strawberrycreme does a million times more. The VO work in it is hillarious, I would link it but I’m at work on my phone (hence all the typos in pervious comments)

    Sadly Spider-Man and X-men will never be in the Avenger movie, because of movie rights to the IPs. via Sony owning Spider-man and Fox owniing X-men and everything mutant related.

        yep, unlike DC which is all owned by Warner Bros. Marvel is owned by Disney, But individual IPs such as the X-Men, Spider-man, Punisher, and Blade are all owned by different movie companies. Hence why we got a X-men & Wolverine sequel and Spider-man movie so fast, because if they don’t use the IP then Disney can come outbid for it. So odds are very very slim we would get a tie end unless they could just agree to all make money..

          The rumor mill is that Fox is going to sell back the rights to Fantastic Four.
          I believe Fox also owns the rights to deadpool which to my knowledge is still going to get its own movie with Ryan Renolds.

        Sorry officer Andrew from the comment police :P

        Also harrison it was an f-35 lightning II prototype. Also I know I sound like an ass I’m sorry again.

        I’m really surprised you guys didn’t talk much on Maria hill being in the movie.

    My friends and I saw Avengers twice in one day (midnight premier and then again later in the day). I guess it was alright. The Chitauri looked more like Gears of War Locusts than anything else to me, especially with their flying whale creatures.

    The Persona 4 “Endurance Run” is what got me to play Persona 3 when it came out on PSP.

    I don’t think I could ever play 4 on my own now, becuase Jeff and Vinny sorta inserted themselves as characters in it. I am looking forward to the inevitable announcement of Persona 5, though

    I just got an idea (good or bad, you decide), that we all try together, to find the mystery soundtrack, since I don’t think we will guess it, the way it’s been going…anybody up for this?=)

      Damn, I’ve actually heard of that one too. I would have never guessed an NES game because it sounded too advanced to be one. It turns Mr. Gimmick actually had a special sound chip built into the cartridge (similar to the Japanese Castlevania 3) to make that possible.

        Pat the NES Punk did an excellent review of Mr. Gimmick on his website where he mentions the special sound chip.

    I forgot to add, Congrats Harrison on winning the Vita. Sadly chances are there will be a year until there is a good run of Vita games. Pretty much like the PSP run.

    Also talking about collectors edition games and cloth maps I got a collectors edition YS set that came with a cloth map. :D just like the old days. Sometimes I think I’m the only one still playing a PSP
