Glad to see you post that here, Peanut. I was just about to create a thread for it, but gaming new's like that doesn't seem to generate too much interest around here, sadly, so it probably doesn't need one. Yup, Gamespot was the first video-game website I frequently visited. That Gerstmann incident was a real eye-opener for me, regarding the workings of the game industry.

Gerstmann rocks though. Giant Bomb is a pretty great site. Was anyone else surprised to see Jeff give Syndicate 5/5 and ME3 4/5? I haven't played either so I'm not even making a judgement call. It's great that he reviews games based on his actual opinion of them. I just found it interesting.

Anyways, while my stomach twists and turns for Ninja Gaiden 3's probable disappointment, I decided to just start Ninja Gaiden Sigma again. Next to Metal Gear Solid and Mario, this has got to be one of my favorite game series. The action feels so good. It's hard for me to describe, but compared to other action games, they really nail the "feel" and weight of the character. I love Devil May Cry and God of war, but I feel like a plastic action figure in those games.


EDIT: I agree that it would be cool to have a "Gaming new's" thread. Personally, I don't see the advantage of having both the "Latest video game purchases" and "Currently playing" threads. They seem like they could probably be merged.

We used to watch E3 on Gamespot. Those were good times. And didn't they do Button Mashing? Or am I thinking of a different site?

They did Button Mashing and now they can probably do it again.

I'm so crazy excited for this game and that preview somehow hyped me more! It sounds like it'll be more Diddy Kong (Best kart racer ever) and less Mario Kart, which sounds great. All of the stuff about how this is even more of a love letter to Sega fans also sounds crazy exciting. However, I was still hoping they'd take the step to not make it a "kart" racer in the sense that everyone drives. AiAi rolling in a monkey ball, Sonic running, that kind of thing. Opa-Opa flew around in the first one, so I was hoping they'd take that direction.

Aside from that, I'm so happy this is geting made. I just hope they don't take out any of the existing racers, unless they're the sh*tty Sonic characters or the the dumb House of the Dead duo. I main Bonanza Bros.!

I liked Skies of Arcadia, so it'll be neat to see Vyse.

And Opa-Opa all the way.

Yeah I totally didn't see that.

This board hates me. It's the only one I can never find a topic on, whether I'm scanning the pages or just doing a search.

Well I also glance up and down the front page before I post. Didn't see anything about Injustice.

This is part of the reason I'm rarely here anymore :/

So I know this series isn't for everyone, but this announcement made me happy.

Awwwww, HELL YEAH! So excited for this!! I'm a huge Guilty fan, and it was one of the first fighting games I got into seriously when I was in college.

Ryan Davis of Giant Bomb passed away. I'm super bummed and really struggling to come to grips with the fact that this is real. When I stopped to think about it, I've been listening to/watching him talk about games for close to a decade and with Giant Bomb he's pretty much been a staple of my daily routine. At least 4 or 5 days in a week I check something out on GB and he's usually front and center. I don't know. I just feel incredibly strange right now.

Dude got married a week ago. His wife lost her husband days after they were married. Dude was only 34. I just...****.

Yes, it has been a terrible day. He was great and the game journalism scene won't be the same.

So, I guess Valve announced a new 3DO. I hope it bombs.

I hope SteamOS either becomes a thing or paves the way for others like it that will eventually become the standard. I'm going to be honest, Windows is not going to be catered to PC gamers in the next 5-10 years. So we need another OS that will support new games that come out, as well as have compatibility with all peripherals (I'm looking at you, Linux. You are horrible.)
