If you spend 10 minutes trying to write a Quickpost...can it really be called Quickpost?

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?

Today I learned that Bad Rats 2 is a thing that is happening. I don't know how to feel about this.

The temp agency that employs me had me work as a sign spinner today. As in, I held a six foot cardboard arrow-shaped sign and spun it and danced for six hours. It got interesting when a homeless couple confronted me about hogging their spot.

It looks like my job at PAX didn't work out (For a variety of reasons). Have fun at the convention, everyone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdqoNKCCt7A

Witches of Crookback Bog from Witcher 3 is the best quest in the whole game and of any game I've played in recent memory.

I was just accosted by the most gorgeous cosmetics saleswoman with an adorable Hatian-Creole accent. It's not often my attention gets that immersed in a total bullshit sales pitch. Well, that and I didn't want her to let go of my arm.

My son just washed my Majora's Mask NEW 3DS because the screen was dirty. Bahahaha *cries uncontrollably*

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I've been mad at myself all morning for missing the apostrophe in "I'll" on my Quickpost last night, but it turns out that apostrophes just don't show up on the feed! Isn't that the bee's knees?

Playing through Skies of Arcadia Legends right now. Bringing this to Steam or current gen in HD seems like a no-brainer. Make it so, Sega!

Ogmo from 'Jumper' confirmed playable in Super Meat Boy

This is the Scarface video we're talking about: It's pretty awesome. This week, the regular cast minus Brad discussed PAX East, the 3DS, and a bunch of listener questions. Hope you dig it.   0

Podtoid 144 has no method to its madness

Podtoid records tonight, and the PAX East-attending members of the cast (Topher, Samit) will hopefully be joining us. I don't really know what we'll talk about. Maybe Cave Story, and how people who have finished the Hell level are cooler than people who haven't? Maybe we'll talk about our favorite Shakespeare plays. No we won't.   0

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: 1 vs 100

Podtoid 143: anal tax bracket

I (Anthony) don't show up until after the break, but I'm pretty sure that this week's episode is primarily about random news nonsense and an extended Games of the Week segment dealing with Metro 2033 and Splinter Cell: Conviction. Linde and Brad aren't around for this one, but Leray showed up. Enjoy.   0

Podtoid 143 records tonight, likely about God of War III

We're gonna try to talk about God of War III tonight without going heavily into spoiler territory. Shouldn't be hard given the fact that so very little of the game can actually be spoiled, but hey -- if things get rough, we'll do a special spoilertoid episode later this week. No matter what happens, though, we'll still need listener questions. Hit the jump and supply them, if you would.   0

Not-Review: Metro 2033

I'm not going to review Metro 2033. I haven't made it past the third chapter of the game, and I doubt I'll ever make it any further. It's not that Metro 2033 is irredeemably awful, or anything. It's got some good points, whic...   0

Why you need to be excited about SpyParty

Podtoid 142: 15 Minutes to Midnight

I'd be lying if I said this week's Podtoid wasn't a little on the calm side, but our two loudest cast members are missing, and Leray and I were tired from our respective trips back from GDC. Such is life. Either way, the Podtoid crew discussed Brenda Brathwaite's Train, Portal 2, and our least favorite videogame bosses. And other stuff. Listen to the podcast here.   0

GDC 10: a second opinion on Mafia II

As a huge fan of the first Mafia game, I was more than a little jealous when Brad Nicholson got a chance to play Mafia II earlier this week. I played through the same demo as Brad Friday afternoon, and I have to say: I came away with a much different impression of Mafia II. Hit the jump for my thoughts.   0
