Why would you need a decision whether or not to buy the camera, they should make it just come with it.

Really wish US was getting Wonderful 101 as one of their free games.  Oh well, I'm positive I'll be happy with Pikim 3, as I already own the other games.

W00t, Free Wii U game :) I was going to buy pikmin 3 anyway. I might grab new mario bros u (Which I wouldn't pay full price for) and buy pikmin 3 as planned.

A few days ago Gamespot videos stopped letting me control the volume, except GS News :), it's weird.  When I hover or click the icon, the slider never comes up.  I also no longer can click the X to stop the next video loading, I have to pause instead, so annoying.  Giantbomb videos work fine.

Which Wii U game? Pikmin 3 for sure. The Zelda remake doesn't make me want to play it again, I have the Mario U games, and that leaves a party game or Pikmin.  Easy choice.  

It's a really good deal for any fence sitters though. Console + Awesome pack in game + free download of a great title.  It's too bad the console was largely abandoned by 3rd parties.

I don't know what it is about her but Jess always felt like a fake person or something.  Like she does her job well and everything but she just seems kinda robotic, as if i was watching a high tech robot chick giving the news and not a real person.

Anyone else get motion sickness during this video? Intense panoramic for the black box.

PS4 Light

I think it's cute.  It's neat how it changes colours every now and then after loading times or whatever.  Sometimes it's blue for a short while, then it's red, then yellow, then white, the red or blue.  It's like a Christmas light.  I think it's amusing to see it switching colours all the time.

You only notice it shining on your TV when your TV is black with no video.


Drive Club -- Yes, it's something I would buy.  I'm looking forward to it.


So sorry if Australia and NZ are included in the free Nintendo game.  I hope you are.  It's a sucky world if you aren't.


Great show.

No 60fps on a driving game? Oh dear, Sony fanboys will be staying quiet for this round.

I think it's a good move from Nintendo. It may just grab the gamers who were thinking of getting a WiiU to play MK8 but were not quite sure. Hey greasmonky42 I'm pretty sure that we get the deal as well. :)

Don't suppose us Australians get in this sweet free game for Wii U deal? ALL GAMERS ARE EQUAL, NINTENDO! Europeans and North Americans don't deserve special treatment!

I don't have anything to say about the news today, but your shirt is really awesome, Jess! Big Daddies, especially Bouncers, are one of the coolest and most uniquely designed video game enemies I know :)

@inmate_of_death ever tried to have a job? perhaps, ever tried to have a job that related to your hobby that day after day becomes more and more job related and less as a hobby?

@inmate_of_death Could be, maybe she's Sony's answer to Siri and Cortana.  Anyone under 13 years of age ever have her respond to your comment? :)

@superbuuman I don't know 1 person that is not amazed by W101, but plenty of people saying that sonic LW is completely boring... sooo maybe you should be not so fast with this decision :D

@homelessgamer  


Poor homelessgamer,


Jess loves you (and me) so much she ignores you 99.9% of the time.

You still waiting around for hours waiting for her to respond to you.


Let me tell you a secret, "actions dictate priorities."   If you were a priority . . . 

I'm sure you get the picture.

@SaintsRowLA Hmm, never noticed it changing colours but of course it's always facing away.  I have only seen blue and then yellow when externally charging.

@dani_i89  LOL! The game does look pretty sweet though... still... Mario Kart is around the corner... I don't need another racer for a while!

Oh yeah.. and its 60FPS lol

@kovaras1984  Good point.  I just keep mine plugged in all the time (I don't sit that far away).

@boringdork I'd take a half-finished version of Mario Kart 8 over Drive Club any day!

@SaintsRowLA @Zombie97 I very rarely comment about the host's appearance because it's not the reason why I watch her videos. However, I love BioShock and really liked her t-shirt. I've been here for quite a long time so I'm sure Jess knows that I appreciate all the effort and hard work she puts into GS News, The Gist, House of Horrors and her YouTube videos :)

@JunoWalker Truman wanted to enter the war long before the attack on Pearl Harbor, but Congress kept voting him down.

As for kicking ass and taking names;

Eisenhower: we should meet the soviets in the middle of Germany.

Churchill: We should go right through Germany and ignore the soviets.

Eisenhower won causing the divide between East and West Germany. Causing the start of the Cold War. I wouldn't exactly call that kicking ass and taking names. If it wasn't for Britain winning the Battle of Britain chances are you'd be talking German now.

As for the use of Nuclear Weapons, I honestly don't think that is something to brag about or be proud of. But that's just me.

@canuckbiker  actually we didn't feel the need to get involved with your fucking problems, until they became ours, once Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. After that we kicked ass and took names. Just remember America has the most and biggest nukes on the planet and we're also the only country to use'em.

The half wit is trying to imply that America won world war 2. It's not his fault, that's the bs they feed them so they don't feel like they were a bunch of passive cowards for most of ww2.
