I thought it was your best show yet. Really nice flow today, and really seemed comfortable in front of the camera. I was beggin for Danny O'Dwyer last week, but I was wrong to nay say so soon.

Man, if he didn't make the joke about football players being mutants already, I was going to be all over that.

Screw that I will be installing mine because when I had GTA 4 it froze so much for me and then I finally got live to get that update and I install my games all the time.

Why is Chris still doing this? : D TBH I do prefer Chris's sense of misguided un-abated un-polished humor XD.  Do you thing Chris, do your thing...

Here's some NEWs for you: The Elder Scrolls won the Greatest Game Series of the decade, because the users of this site voted more for it then GTA, and GameSpot, the people who did the poll, have yet to acknowledge it!

I almost like it better when Jess isn't hosting the news. We don't get a bunch of horny gamers, sniffing around trying to butter Jess up.

I'm drooling for GTA V to hit PC (Steam).

And I want Mutant League Football to hit PC. I loved it on the Sega Genesis.

Again with the funny stuff, Chris. (I secretly don't mind, continue being clever!)

The hype that developed on GTA Vs backside hasn't left me yet (I can happily say) as I'll grab that work when it comes out for my laptop to munch on. Just saw the review though (awesomely done by Ms. Petit) and the expectations that sat on MY backside were realized pretty quickly as I was satisfied through the footage.

I was ecstatic to hear that the missions that would carry GTA Vs story were so spectacular, as I'm playing Saints Row The Third right now, and am bored, disappointed and frustrated at times by the forced generic qualities that a lot of the missions have. That's not to say that the game doesn't have its moments in flair and spectacle, and I'm entertained for the most point so far, so I guess that's all I can ask for in a title that doesn't promote any depth in its atmosphere and story. In short, looking forward to GTAs variety and originality in structure.

A lot of my buds have been shaking waiting for Battlefield 4 to debut, and news of the open October beta will make them human again, so thanks for that. And another Mass Effect game?

Never played a single one, but have heard plenty of the series legacy as a hard story driven RPG. That'll be neat to cover. 

Another enjoyable episode, man. Keep up the good work and stuffs.

Dear Bioware, Leave EA. You're better than that and we really missed your old work because Mass Effect 2 and 3 were not good, and I had to force myself to play those 2 terrible games. I died a little playing ME2 and ME3.

I feel sorry for the people that first paid for Premium in BF3 then pre-ordered MoH:Warfighter when they announced that you would get access to BF4 beta by doing so, without ever mentioning that Premium users would get the privilege anyway eh.

@kennythomas26  I watched some game footagee and it does mess with the background. It causes certain layers or objects to render into the image late.

@kennythomas26 You can install GTAV, just don't install the "Play" disc if you want optimal performance (according to Rockstar).

@SiriusSteve Game does not get enough respect or forgotten too easily. Still haven't played the latest installment.

@deafwing Verily I shall continue to do my thing! Wasn't sure they were even going to include that "NFL players being actual mutants" line, but it worked out!

@miranda246 HA! We have a few folks around the office who are like your buddies with the crazy BF4 anticipation. I dare say the beta will have a cathartic effect on them as well.

@Anthony_Zombo Hey liked Mass Effect 2 bud and I loved the first one but the third one was a bit of disappointment.

@robitussin217 It's because nobody really cared, plus they don't want to make a big deal about something so untrue. They just swept it under the rug where it belongs.

@Chris_Watters @kennythomas26 I have had my 360 for about 6-7 years and live for about 5, and almost anything from the Take Two interactive house of developers I have had problems with there games freezing or more. So I don't know.

@grin89 I don't even count The Elder Scrolls online as a TES game. Form what I've seen of it, it doesn't even play like one. It would suck if they never make another "real" Elder Scrolls game, but the series did have a good run, I guess.

@jonny_dutch OH, WOW, they acknowledged it in the community blog, which is buried in the forums tab, so hardly anybody actually looks at it! 

They made a big deal of it leading up to the poll, and during the poll, articles on the front page and everything, but when TES won, it vanished. I think it's probably because it didn't fit in with their scheme to promote GTA V. But, that would be biased, and a game reviews site should not be biased toward any game! The users decided who won the poll!

Funny kid. When that poll started. Suddenly there are 10 News About GTA everyday.Like "nobody knows when the game launches".It "danged" them when the Poll Started. Yeah.

They all making gameplay shows about GTA. Lots and lots of them.

Too many "coincidence" i would say.

@starduke @jonny_dutchyou're right, they buried the news after making such a big fuss. There is a reason the tournament just "happened" to be right before gta5 dropped.
