This expansion could improve the game a lot. At least it's worth paying attention to. maybe we are in for a good surprise.

I don't get it... how do you do an episode of The Waiting Game without mentioning Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile?  Or are those just so obvious that they weren't even worth mentioning?  And if we're going back to Golden Axe, then what about Champions of Norrath and Titan Quest?

Also, Johnny is a PhD?  He talked about doing his dissertation on Beowulf...

I hope Johnny is staying with GS (and Feebackula). Otherwise, I'M GONNA BE FUCKIN PISSED OFF.

I agree with the others, Johnny is the reason to come here (and Jess McDonnell). Still, we need Feedbackula!

Although this is Diablo 3's first expansion, they are adding only 1 act and 1 char so you are right. 


This is Diablo 3 DLC...

That's so sad!!! Come on Jonneh, please don't tell us you're leaving gamespot! You are the best! And pretty please stay in charge of feedbackula. We can't lose you, pal!

I REALLY hope you aren't leaving Gamespot Johnny.  I enjoy everything you do for this website, you and your friends at the UK office are staples of this site and its programming.  If you are leaving, make sure to let us know where you are headed so we can continue to support your work :-)  Best of luck mate, wherever you go!

Golden Axe was best played on the Amiga as generally the Amiga had the best versions of games in that period of time.

Beowulf is suppose to based on Ray Winstone, but have you actually seen Ray?  The character of Beowulf is voiced by Ray, but, I believe the movie character (model) is based on Sean Bean, but do you see that mentioned anywhere?


I'm hoping the PC interface for Reaper of Souls is adjusted to that of consoles.  The consoles interface seems much cleaner (simpler) than the PC.

Was looking forward to this particular Waiting Game.


I can't wait to play Reaper of Souls. I've sunk around 600+ hours into Diablo 3 and want to see how the story will develop.


(semi offtopic) Unfortunately for me the UPS service from Amazon seems to have problems with my shipment of Book of Tyrael and Storm of Light (currently sitting in our borders in an airport and I can't seem to convince them to sent it my way (I even payed for the books). I don't know if I'll get those books in time so I can read them before RoS hits. Would suck because I read "The Order" before D3 hit and it was really awesome knowing the gap between D2 and D3.

 No Johnny, first Danny and now you. I hope that you aren't moving from Gamespot. I like your shows - random encounters with you was allways full of fun . Thx man for all :-)

Why i feel i am the only one who thinks that Beowulf is a good movie.I agree it is not a great movie  but it is not garbage as many people think it is.

@johnneh Thanks for all your hard work on The Waiting Game. I don't think I've ever really been waiting for any of the games you've covered, but I've still always found the show entertaining and enjoyable.

Johnny - are you just moving on from 'The Waiting Game' (sad but understandable) or moving on from Gamespot (catastrophic!)? I hope it is not the latter, but just in case - all the best, I have greatly appreciated your wit, wisdom and common sense displayed in all your various shows.

@da_nibbler  the dragon was cool and the fight scene was decent but yeah in the poem Beowulf kills Grendal, defeats the mother and moves on more or less.

@AtheistPreacher  I think part of the point of the waiting game is to avoid the obvious connections, to which I'm actually more befuddled by Diablo 2's inclusion.

@AtheistPreacher  yep lets see-Baldurs gate allience, Champions of Norrath 1,2 and 3, Torchlite 2, and of coarse Titain Quest to name a few-there's also Fate and fate 2 even.

@AtheistPreacher  Yes, I noticed that too. It appears that in some cases the word 'dissertation' can also be used for a BA or MA thesis. Not I don't believe Johnny, but well... it seems unlikely he's a PhD, given his current career and age. Although I suppose it could be possible...

@bdiddytampa  Sadly I am leaving GameSpot, though not entirely - I'm going to continue to make Feedbackula. I'm going freelance, so I'll hopefully be popping up all over the place very soon. Finding me on twitter is probably the best way to stay informed.

@matman01  I'm leaving GameSpot to go freelance, but I'm going to continue to produce Feedbackula - it's not all bad news!

@SHEETBIKE Good for you man, way to chase the dream :-) I'm glad you'll be staying on for Feedbackula, and I'm sure many visitors of this site, including me, will be keeping an eye out for your future work.  Again, best of luck, you are a talented writer with a brilliant comedic personalty, you'll be an asset wherever you end up contributing.

@SHEETBIKE @matman01  Hi Johnny, I read your blog post just after posting the above (and actually posted again against that). Sorry to see you move on, as I think you are one of the four best presenters on GS (my other faves being Cam. Danny and Jess), and you will be missed. But as you say, you're still doing Feedbackula for the foreseeable future, so it's not all bad. All the best for your future career - I am sure it will be stellar.
