After hearing about that kid's Skyrim mod, I am ashamed at my own work ethic for creating new things.

PS bluetooth comment was gold.  That was exactly what I said when that story came up.  Of course they're going work, they all have bluetooth

I think this whole "Sony is all about the indies!" is pretty overblown.  MS had so many great indie titles on the 360 I think it is strange so many of you think this will change going forward.  I'm pretty sure Sony has learned their lesson from last gen and have really embraced the idea of letting anyone get a game on their platform and I think this is great but don't underestimate what MS has in store for the XB1.  It'll end up being a more open platform than they are letting on right now.

First thing, in the video description, you've put "PS$", typo or bias?

Secondly, well done to the teenager who made the mod, it's an epic undertaking. Despite this, he shouldn't expect to receive a job at Bethesda simply due to his work, that's like writing a book then expecting a job at Penguin. Hopefully if he does apply, he'll get to the interview stage at least.

This guy is pro, Jess needs to be his co host.

But how about the guys who did Morroblivion and are working on Skyblivion? Don't they deserve some attention from Bethesda or from Gamespot?

No worries Shawn, you host the show like a boss too. :)


To the news then, MS needs to do more than just say "we are passionate about indies". They have been the slowest to take action, both Sony and Nintendo made their moves and MS is playing catch up. 


Justin Carter's situation proves that sometimes authorities can be way too paranoic, this guy shouldn't have been arrested in the first place.


I still need to get myself one of those Pulse wirelesss headsets, the new version looks awesome and the fact that it will work with the PS4 is just a bonus. Tthere goes my budget again!

ATM microsoft is saying that indies have to go through a publisher.... are M$ just changing their own rules to compete with Sony? seriously the M$ should make the xbone how they originally planned, not just be a jealous kid going "Oh if Sony's doing that when were doing that also"

Shaun is PRO in the News so i wouldn't cut him off when Jess Comes Back, maybe they should co-host or do it One week Jess, one week Shaun.

I think GS News should be taken in turns by Jess and Shaun. It would also give Jess a bit of a break, if she wanted 1, from having to wake up so early in the morning.Or maybe even get Jess to do news and Shaun to do the top 5?

Why don't you guys take turns after she comes back? Alternate days and the like. Guys will have there share. Jess is decent but Shaun is better imo.

I swear I commented. I'm not even sure about myself anymore. Where is my comment? Did I ever comment? Why is Gamespot doing this to me?

Oh, Shaun. We still love you despite the fact you aren't an attractive Australian lady.  Funny is funny, and I needs my bread and circuses. Fight a lion, Shaun! Fight a lion with a net and trident!

Justin Carter needs to SUE THE SHIT outta law enforcement over this. I would. I'd sue them until they had smoke coming outta their assholes.

I swear he;s saying "Ass Mcinnis" heh.

Anyway, I wonder what his therapist has to say about the I'm-Not-Jess inferiority complex he has developed.

@Silv3rSt0rm82 this is getting further and further creepy with every post... do we as male gamers have to be so transparent and basement dwelly?  if however youre a female and a lesbian then nvm 'cuz that would be hot.

@PotHeel Agreed, about the "teenager who made the mod".

Doing something for 40 hours a week for a single year -- even with very good results -- is no guarantee that anyone should get their dream job.

Ideally, it -would- be great.  I'd love to spend a year making an RPG using RPG Maker VX Ace, and then be assured of a job at Atlus or Square/Enix.

@PotHeel Definitely a typo. Even if it were a joke, it'd be a pretty bad one. The PS4 costs $100 less than the Xbox One!

@Toplinkar I've been playing great indie xbox arcade games for ages, dunno what you are talking about.

@Toplinkar Well 2 things should have happened, 1 he should not have said that, it was just dumb, 2 he should not have been arrested.

@wolf503 Lol do you notice it's daylight in the office behind Jess when she's doing the news? It's because she's doing the news in Sydney Australia and probably in regular working hours. Have you heard of timezones?

@PeejayYeh I had a fundamental Christian say something like that to me about the universe. I was like "Whoa, back off before I beat you down with logic and science!". It was a bad first date overall to be honest.

@nate1222 He'd definitely be able to earn modest compensation for the ordeal he was put through but can't see anything beyond that.

@Isaac360 Considering the complaints by indies developers I've seem on  numerous websites (gamespot included) those indies were not treated well by microsoft and seriously considered not coming back.

That is what I am talking about.

@SpazldNinjaDude Agreed. He should not have said that. But I'm yet to know a person who haven't said the worng thing at worng time, we should not overreact like this when that happens.

@krev23 
@wolf503 lol you do notice she posted a comment in 1 of the other GS News posts, stating that she wakes up at around 5-6am to get everything done by around 9am? And generally in Sydney and Melbourne (where I live) by 9 am it's daylight. So congratulations on knowing Australian working hours and timezones. *claps*

@jflkdjs @hystavito me 3, I had to replay that part to double check. Since it was Shaun, I thought he might have been playing a bit of a joke on us.

@SpazldNinjaDude Yeah, he scored a 10/10 when it comes to being dumb.

@Toplinkar @SpazldNinjaDude Yer, overeating a hella lot too! Yer, we all say stupid things, but we don't all say we are going to shoot a school up? Do we? Really? That's going too far, saying, I'm going to kill you, it's dumb, but harmless, because you don't actually know that person, but saying something like, I'm going to shoot (insert establishment here) up, there is one of them in almost everywhere probably, so it was just, on the scale of dumb to just brain dead, brain dead with a passion.
