Just registered but have been reading and listening to the podcast for months. Great stuff, though I grow tired of Brian always reacting in the same way: FPS games like Halo: Reach and COD BLOPS do everything right and all other games are inferior, unless they somehow evoke a feeling of nostalgia like Pacman or Donkey Kong. I have no problem with championing FPS and multiplayer--that's certainly the dominant attitude out there on teh Interwebs--but to be an interesting journalist, podcast commentator, and analyst, you have to at least be willing to experiment with different types of games and be open to new ideas. If the response to every new experience, new suggestion, or new development (be it Move or Kinnect, Jeff's desire for more in-game feedback about friends, or PS3 trophies) is an ironic sneer and reference to your Xbox-centered multiplayer FPS experiences, then you basically have nothing to add. You know games, you are smart, so why not push yourself a bit? How, for example, could you possibly have anything to say about AC in any of its iterations if you only watched others play? I DARE you to invest 8 hours into AC Brotherhood's campaign and multiplayer (not just the latter) and come back and tell us that it's just like Farmville.
