  • ClusterShart - July 31, 2009 7:59 p.m.

    This podcast has actually made me want to become a games journalist. Even better, I hope to become and employee of this site in the future. This is a highly influential podcast. reCAPTCHA - cabarets Friday (When I first say it i thought it was charebrets Friday)

    YAY PODCAST I wish I could explain fully how happy Fridays are when I have Tdar to look forward to. And as someone who is predisposed to be unhappy (thanks to brainmeats), any happy is amazing! reCAPCHA: 38-caliber popovers

    I just found out Brett cut some rambly gold from the 3rd segment! Check the forums this week for B-B-B-BONUS
  • Samael - August 1, 2009 4:06 a.m. are very wrong about BlazBlue. I suck at fighting games and I LOVE BlazBlue. I don't know what you mean about too many bars, there's like 4 maximum (Health, Heat Gauge and Barrier Gauge. Possibly also the Guard Libra but that's more like a tug of war thing and you don't need to always look at it) and it isn't nearly as complicated as you apparently think it is. Two quotes from Gr's review (well I guess Playstation World Uk's review) - "BlazBlue isn’t the most technical fighter - its design is to enable novices to feel good about their play " and "But the fact remains, the control set-up and visual impact makes BlazBlue a game for all experience levels." So yeah...I was kinda hoping for a bit more an endorsment.

  • Jacob816 - August 2, 2009 3:52 a.m.
