The background and intro music is so bad. The rest of the rest show is fine

Is this Gamespot's equivalent of IGN's Daily Fix?

For those wondering about playing Final Fantasy VII (Steam) offline:

Start Menu/All Programs/Steam/Final Fantasy VII.

After you launch FFVII, got into Settings/Network and uncheck Cloud Saving. Wa-la! Offline play.

The cloud saving feature (done thru SE, not Steam) seems to be more of a hindrance than it's worth.

@nate1222 Cloud saving eh.. Too bad there's no Aeris saving.

@chechak7 I enjoyed 8 but I think 7 takes the crown for the most epic Final Fantasy and one of the most epic games of all time!

i think ill repost my comment infinitely, It seems it will never get old while This presenter Jess is making news:

so whats up with the endless criticism?,she is doing her news job, instead of reading commets about games which i mostly enjoy, now I have been reading for several days these: "shes not cute enough, shes plain at max, I dont like her much, she should speak more like whoever" etc etc. or long debates if shes hot or not. I dont see any of these talks when Danny is making video or Johny from Feedbackula is showing one. I Know I know "shes a chick" right? but openly judgying news girls for her looks, is like drooling when u see a hamburguer pic (this last has been a problem for me in the past, one time in public... five times in total) haha but really those r the kind of  innate caveman instincs that one as minimum dont say outloud... havent u care to think that this presenter might get into this chats to get some feedbacks, and just feel kind of bad with all these nonsense?... not that she does,  she looks really slick,  but she might, that should be enough!
PS: how ass kisser is that from 1 to 10? haha but really its still true

@Mercadeo To be fair, Johnny gets his fair share of comments about his hair on feedbackula.

@Mercadeo She sometimes posts on comments sections actually. And well, I would think that this is a problem with a male dominated community. We see a geeky/gamer girl and go rabbid.<.< Doubt she gives a f'k either way though; as you said, she's here doing her job, not looking for dates.

@Mercadeo hmmm... in terms of ass kissing...I would give you a 6! But you're completely right! (Does that mean I get an 8?)

@Mercadeo She's good at her job and she talks about games! That's all that we really need to care about...(Oh look I just went ahead and got myself a 10!)

@rez_1kabir i dont mean you (alias AzKisser! haha just kidding) but I just read a bit more comments below and really, we Dudes are collectively the most unreasonable group----

Region Locking is so stupid. It only restricts people from enjoying media from other regions.

@jflkdjs It's a natural defense mechanism to protect themselves from angry American soccer moms.

@coldfusion25 @jflkdjs knowingly or not you just used a meme there, that whole line is an old meme regarding region locking
