Thank you, I am grateful for this sight. I am also grateful for the moment of silence for one of the greats, and will mourn his passing. Much love.

R.I.P. pal. SUre the only Nintendo thing I've ever owned was a Gameboy Color, but it still gave pletny of smiles to 11 year old me. THanks for that.


Now, to the good news. Dark Souls has a release date, finally!! IDAy 1 for me. I'm not interested on gesture controls no matter the console they land on, but the recording and streaming features are interesting.


Good luck to PC gamers on GTA. For now I'm busy with Bioshock Infinite and Dead Space 3. THese have been on my list since forever so I might as well take care of that first. I'll pick up the inevitable GOTY edition that will be released on the PS4 next year (it's going to happen, you know it!)

About Dark Souls II. I hate when developers/publishers still overlook PC versions of their games. Why the fuck not just release it PC also at fucking same day? Another great game I have to pass due this fact. Well at least I can enjoy GTA V very much on PS3, but it would be a notch better on PC, over 20 fps all the time, easy head shots for gold medals etc.

Dark Souls 2, the thing I don't like about it is that it is still 6 months away. :'(

But, if that means a more polished products, than it's fine. x3

Well handled!  And that was quite the career.  From 1949 to 2002.  Dang.  1949 is Japanese WWII reconstruction time.  Pulling a company through that must have taken a lot of skill.

nice touch on the moment of silence. Thanks for not trivializing it with a follow up joke

It was nice to have a moment of silence. Think of all the good that has come from his work - giving kids and adults something to smile about no matter what else was going on in their lives, inspiring others, etc. That is a life well spent.

@LJNkickstarter sorry, but can't help but lol @ that. But yes, it was because of that man, that I love video games today. So thanks, and enjoy the afterlife.

@farmerjbm I was hoping he wouldn't screw it up too as he seemed to have a little smirk and he's often clowning around a bit in the videos...
