*Yeah, I realize he does the new releases, but give me a break, that's not exactly engaging communication.

The discussion of A-list games being intimidating was so full of fucking truth that my head almost exploded. At last, someone has gotten to the heart of an issue that has long bothered me as a gamer: Whether it’s because I feel like I need to clear my schedule before taking it on or I’m just overwhelmed by the thought of trying to finish these massive games, I invariably find myself reticent to start marquee games. Instead, I polish off an XBLA title, play something on the DS, or pop in a B-list title rather than delve into the stack of acclaimed backlog titles I have waiting for me. This is a real issue for a lot of gamers, and I’m glad someone finally brought it up.
While I disagree with Wombat’s overall assessment of District 9, I think some of his critiques are accurate. The film is good, not great, and has been somewhat overhyped by FPS fans who finally have a movie that speaks directly to them and is not complete and utter dogshit. It’s not Citizen Kane, but it is original and has its merits, and as long as you don’t focus on the battleship-sized plot holes, you will have a good time. I will say that I saw Ponyo the same weekend and walked out of the theater considerably more satisfied by that film. But to each their own. And incidentally, G.I. Joe and BOTH Transformers movies are steaming piles of shit. I'm glad at least Cheapy has the sense to recognize that.
Finally, $10k is a ridiculous amount of scratch just to sit in Stern’s presence, but hopefully you’ll get your dick sucked or get to ride a Sybian or something.
