    When Did TV Get So Good?

    I think the quality of programming on television (at least in North America) has come a long way in the past 10-15 years, but we still have a long way to go. I hope we see a continued push towards shorter, tightly-woven narratives (6-10 episodes) that tell an entire story and explore themes that...

    Escapist Podcast: 106: Elder Scrolls Online & Moon Computers

    Good cake doesn't need a ton of icing, and should be able to stand on its own. I agree with Jon re: art books. I love seeing the evolution of game elements from "concept" to "final", and art books are the perfect vehicle for that.

    Miracle of Sound: The Best of Us (The Last of Us)

    Beautiful song, Gavin. Great atmosphere. Reminded me a lot of Katatonia, especially the haunting melodies.

    Cheap Ass Gamer

    For me, it depends on how much I really want to play a title the day it's released. I probably buy 2-3 games a year on release day, but I usually wait for a price drop before purchasing anything. I live in Canada, so most games cost $60 on day one. If I wait 2-3 months, I can expect a $20-30...

    Next Gen, is anyone really done with their current consoles?

    I still have a huge backlog of games to get through on my PS3, not to mention that I probably won't have the cash to purchase a new console when it comes out. I'll likely wait for next generation consoles to be on the market for a year or so before seriously considering a purchase. Prices will...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified Review

    I don't care if it takes longer, but they need to produce quality games for the Vita. For something that has instant brand recognition (Call of Duty), this is completely unacceptable. They seriously need to get their act together.

    The Big Picture: Silly Billy

    I grew up watching reruns of The Beverly Hillbillies, Gilligan's Island and MASH. I live in Canada, but I think these shows came to us via TBS or another American Network. In any event, good shows, good times.

    Eve Online Panel Encourages Harassing Suicidal Player

    Wow. It's hard to imagine that someone thought this was acceptable. I hope that those responsible for this nonsense are thoroughly reprimanded and never allowed to speak in public again. I sincerely hope the company reaches out to the individual in question and apologizes for this entire...

    Kingdoms of Amalur Sells 330,000 Copies

    I think selling over 330,000 copies in NA during its first month is very respectable. I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up the game, but I have to say that I'm enjoying it so far. It's not terribly original, but it's fun to play.

    Rayman Origins Didn't Flop Financially

    I bought the PS3 version in January for $30. I don't think it stayed at full retail for very long.

    Poll: Phantom Menace in 3D Friday??

    I paid to see The Phantom Menace in theatres in 1999. I don't think I'll be forking over the cash a second time. Seeing Jar Jar once on the big screen was enough. On top of that, I'm not a fan of 3D, so the thought of paying $15-17 to see this movie is ludicrous to me.
