@Hirasugi Yeah, it's 2am right now and i'm only 23 minutes in so I won't finish it tonight. But the pure enthusiasm he has for this game is holding my attention, I'm just loving how excited he is by the game

great show. Very honest game design discussion that we simply don't see a lot of in this industry- save the occasional post-mortem Yes the man speaks quickly and goes over an ocean of content, but his enthusiasm alone kept me attentive (as well as the subject matter). I don't really understand the hate this feature is getting ...

This is the first time I couldn't listen to an episode back to back. Had to stop after ~35 minutes and finish it the day after. Don't get me wrong. I loved this episode, and Chris is a really smart, and nice guy. But he just talks sooooo much. I mean COME ON, stop loving to hear yourself talk dude. For %¤#" sake, see someone about that ego, or get off the coke! I will probably love the game though.

Sorry, but I had to quit @ 25 minutes, just couldn't take it anymore. The whole episode is about this game?

@TomM_GScom we know they're James Bond actors. I think what avidgamer1 meant is the weird assignment. Everyone knows Tom Mc Shea is the Sean Connery of Gamespot, not Kevin Vanord :P

@avidgamer1 They are the names of actors who portrayed James Bond. The spy? That may have been too subtle.
