    Oh, SUITE walk. Being a Brit-O, we tend not to use the word "suite" when describing hotel-ly places. I get it now.

    There's something about Ryan's Tom Impression that is just so satisfying XD QOTW: Back in 2002, when Microsoft purchased Rare, no one knew what would happened and nothing really WOW did happen. Sure they made a neat looking remake to Conker and Grabbed by the Ghoulies but it wasnt really as much of a high note as Rare's noteworthy games. Even as the 360 came along and Kameo happened, as great and as fantastic as it was, there was just something missing. Then it happened, in 2006 a fantastic teaser to what fans wanted, a Banjo-Kazooie game, the fact that Banjo was still alive put smiles everywhere as one of the best Collectathons of the N64 that wasnt SM64. And then years later the trailer Banjo-Kazooie Nuts and Bolts happened and ill say i was awestrucked, it was amazing, it looked fantastic and it was pretty much what pushed me to get a 360. and While Nuts and Bolts had Mixed reviews, i LOVED it, the graphics, the fanservice and past characters, the music, everything was amazing and one of my favorite teases and experience this generation right from the teaser till now.

    My favorite moment from this generation is Metal Gear Solid 4. It brought a perfect end to Solid Snake's story. It is one of the few video games that had me just weeping at the end. Finally getting to play it and going through all of the twists and turns was more perfect than I could have imagined. Solid Snake's journey lasted through three separate console generations, and he truly went out with a bang.

    I disagree with Tom about Mass Effect 1 not being a great game. It had its problems, and Mass Effect 2 was a huge upgrade in streamlining things, but doesn't diminish the fact that Mass Effect 1, in a lot of ways, made things feel bigger than ME2 and was really what was needed to start off that universe. But perhaps this is somewhat emotions, because ME1 has some of my favorite memories of the entire generation. It was the game that truly made Achievements interesting to me, giving actual in game bonuses for each one. It was the first game I cleared 100% (right up until that second terrible DLC came out and retroactively made it incomplete). It introduced us to Wrex and Garrus, two of my favorite characters in any game. The ending is phenomenal and is absolutely the best finale section of the series, getting me completely hype to see the amazing conflict that was coming. Until this generation, I played most games on easy like a goddamn baby just because it was a habit... Mass Effect made me want to go for it, and I cleared it on Insanity, giving me the N7 Gamerpic that I will never stop using. It's honestly somewhat sad that Mass Effect is the absolutely pinnacle of achievements in games by actually giving you rewards in the game and out of the game; something so perfect that I'm amazed that not even the sequels have bothered to truly follow suit. What I'm trying to say is... *puts on a sweet pair of Arnette Sunglasses* Tom Magrino can kiss my ass /Renegade

    I liked the first Mass Effect game more than the other two. I enjoyed the story more as it leaned more heavily on it's science fiction elements, and ME2 suffered sorely for it's complete lack of rpg elements and universal cooldown 'shoot shoot shoot power' gameplay.

    Imagine, if you will, a merry Christmas morning, snow is falling , bells 'a ringing, some kid down the street damaging his back on the giant sledding hill. Anyway, I awoke at 4 a.m. as I usually did on Christmas, had to sleep for a few hours in order to let Santa get to my house, of course. I walk downstairs and see an assortment of wrapped boxes on the ground. A pile for my sister and a pile for myself. Let me bring you back further if you will, for a moment, to a young man who is secluded from all of his friends because his parents will not let him have a video game console because of some bullshit about brain melting or some shit. Anyway he leads a sad and lonely life. So where was I? Oh yes the presents. There was one large box in particular that drew my attention, I went for it first and to my surprise it was a Playstation 3! I proceeded to tear open the rest of my presents and spent the rest of the day sitting by the fire playing Uncharted 2 and LittleBigPlanet, accompanied by our hot chocolates. That was my highlight of this generation. If you decide to use this Greg, here's a song to play in the background to really bring up the Christmas mood.

    In addition to my QOTW answer I also have a correction. You guys failed to play my Top 7 Jingle. Again. This made me sad.
  • ProjectAlpha - October 20, 2013 10:13 a.m.

    Yay! thank you.
  • rcarrasco121 - October 19, 2013 7:35 a.m.

    You guys already have gotten my fan art but just in case you wanna use it as the podcast banner here's the HQ pic: Anyway my favorite moment of this generation was when I got an HDTV. I had been playing my ps3 on a 9 inch screen for 2 years before I bought myself a 27 inch Vizio. The first scene I played was the opening jungle scene in Uncharted 1, and I remember howling in delight and my dad screaming "Shut the fuck up, it's 1am!!!!!!!!"

    My favorite moment of the generation happens to be when my friend beat Borderlands story. He was towards the end when I warned him that the ending was a kind of disappointing, but he just shrugged it off and continued on. A couple hours later, I walk into his room as he's beating the game. As soon as the cinematic ends my friend, who is a rather spherically large man, quickly mutters, "Are you serious? Are you fucking serious?" and then throws a fit that involves him pacing back and forth in anger, throwing about pillows and other unimportant things around his small dorm, and proclaiming it to be "the shittiest ending ever made". Meanwhile, his roommate and I are laughing hysterically at the scene as I try get out an "I warned you". The whole scene ended a desk chair flipped over, pillows everywhere and him sulking over to the internet cool down from the funniest bits of nerd rage I've ever seen.
  • ProjectAlpha - October 18, 2013 10:06 p.m.

    My favorite moment of the generation was taking Pokemon Y home on October 12th 2013 and beating it on October 12th 2013.
