    What a bunch of bologna. I know for a fact that Greg can be bought off for considerably less. You've been exposed GR! My question: Can you tell us more about your video crew? I know there's at least Takeshi and one other guy but I feel like they deserve some spotlight for all of their awesome work for the site.

    Hi GOD. You're so right. I've seen it happen! Greg can be bought off for pumpkin cheese cake. Our video crew consists of myself, Thomas Darnell, and Frank Adams. Thomas produces the Smash Bros and Pokemon Weekly shows. Frank produces our video reviews and the Star Wars Battlefront 3 Weekly. I produce RadarPlays and the Weekly Wednesday GR Livestream. Glad you're liking the new shows. Keep letting us know what you want and we'll do our best to bring it to you. PAX, Gamescom, and Tokyo Game Show is right around the corner. If there is something you want to see, let us know now!

    Thanks for the response. Just keep up the good work on the current videos. They're all really fun and it's noticeable when you guys are having fun and that makes it even better. I did notice that the last RadarPlays Freaky with Majyouououo-something-or-other was missing the intro sound though, so I hope that makes a comeback in future releases as it's a pretty great intro sound. Also I don't know if it's just me but the RadarReacts intro is two high pitched and loud. The actual sound is cool, but it comes out of both my speakers and headphones in a painful way unless I have the volume extra low. As for videos at the conventions and such, I'd just say the more content the better whether that relates to amount of things covered in video or the length of the videos. If you're concerned about them being too long sometimes you can always have a full length edition and a quick preview edition. Also green screens are the art of fun. Poor editing and good editing are like the difference between a cylinder of baked dough and an awesome cake. Oh and one last thing!! Sometimes I notice that some of your videos end up on Youtube but not on GR so for one this leads me to miss them but also when I do go back and watch them after stumbling upon them later, I see how low the views are compared to others because they a bunch of people missed it just like me. For example the RadarPlays New Releases of Guacamelee never got an article to feature it.

    My question is:- Would you let us review a game? :P

    how un/comfortable is wearing an oculus expelliarmus rift over spectacles? (for example, in comparison to cinema 3D glasses)
  • taokaka - August 13, 2013 1:36 a.m.

    my question is what is your and everybody else at gamesradar's favourite terrible games?
  • Sinosaur - August 12, 2013 7:11 p.m.

    Greg... is that TIE Interceptor on your desk from the series of toys in the late 90's where they released a bunch of ships and each came with like... two or three little figures you could put in them? It looks like the right material, and the shape of that stand really pops out (should have a slot for two figures to stand in). Those were so cool, I had the X-Wing, the Snowspeeder, and the TIE Defender.
  • Sinosaur - August 12, 2013 9:32 p.m.

    It had just the right color of plastic, size, and the base has that distinctive curve. I honestly wasn't sure until that base clicked. And now I'm remembering that I also had the Darth Vader TIE Advance prototype and a Y-Wing, never the basic TIE Fighter, though.

    Great first video, with a funny ending. I like this, keep it up!
  • GR_SophiaTong - August 12, 2013 6:21 p.m.

    Great video moneybags!
  • g1rldraco7 - August 12, 2013 5:15 p.m.

    Nice video
  • GenderBender_9000 - August 12, 2013 4:53 p.m.

    I loved the "Ask GamesRadar Anything" articles. I'm glad you're bringing it back, in a cool new video format.
  • Lurkero - August 12, 2013 3:44 p.m.

    Always the "how do you get into the games industry" question. Luckily you got it out of the way early, but I get the feeling it will still be asked for every episode.
  • shawksta - August 12, 2013 2:53 p.m.

    Wow this is awesome, your doing a great job as Community Manager Greg :D
  • EAC73 - August 12, 2013 2:15 p.m.

    My question for GR is, How do you guys come up with top 7's and not run out of ideas? Do you guys try to plan them weeks ahead of time, or just go with it one week at a time during meetings? Once again, you guys deliver to the community with so much content, with the several video series you guys put up that are amazing, and along with the podcast. You guys are great keep it coming.

    Hahaha XD Oh man, those pictures of young Lucas and Cooper are fantastic! Pretty sweet video Greg! keep up the good work and stay so visibly unbiased as demonstrated in the vid :P My first question is: In average, how much time does a GR editor get to properly play and write a review for a game?
