Is it still going to be with you, Wombat and Ship? Because last time you had some connection and voice quality issues when you had more than two people at once. Or are you going to test it earlier?

Mass Effect 2 has got to be the most overexposed game in years.

Eh, I don't really see it as being that much more talked about than any other blockbuster titles released this gen. The problem is whenever someone tries to talk about it they spend half the time fumbling over how to describe it without giving away spoilers or figuring out what details BioWare already released. It's pretty annoying.

I'll likely skip this 'cast since live shows aren't really my cup of tea, but IMO you guys should ask her when it's coming for PS3!

Incorrect. If you have listened to any amount of gaming podcasts in the past few weeks, Mass Effect people have been on nearly every big one. Didn't happen with Halo 3 or any other game in recent memory. I guess I have a little ME2 fatigue.

Props to Cheapy and Wombat for getting a quality guest. Too bad it came after everyone else.

At least it's a game that deserves it.

Very excited for tonight. Can't get enough of ME 2.

Why do the dlc armors not have toggleable helmets?!!

^ That's supposed to be in all caps but the forum software doesn't allow it.

Here's a more constructive question:
When developers say they take user feedback in improving the sequel, do they only look at their own forums, or will they go out to independent sites like CAG, or comments from sites that review the game like IGN/Gamespot or blogs like Kotaku/Destructoid?

I think you mean to ask:

"Why was the design decision made to make the DLC Armors one piece of art instead of separate pieces that could be toggled on and off?"

They answered your question on day two.

My question is:

With ME2 taking around 2 -3 years and the launching of a new IP (DA:O) to support will they be looking at finishing up the ME trilogy faster?

Great job landing the interview!

But yes, I haven't even touched ME2, so please please no spoilers.

BTW, there's still apparently about 45min left until the show starts as I type this.

Also awaiting the chatroom link. I hope Wombat makes sure to add a bunch of obscure Simpsons references throughout the cast.

Turn 10 guys did a lot of gamer media as well as car media leading up to Forza 3.

Both games are great and both are things I'm interested in, so no problem for me :)
