    No Right Answer: Best Launch Title Ever

    I'm gonna have to go with the Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt combo pack for the NES. That one cartridge was largely responsible for turning Nintendo into the multinational corporate behemoth we know and love today. (I'm gonna get that smug bastard dog one of these days...)

    The Big Picture: The New Originals

    Bob saw Pacific Rim last night and posted his reaction on Twitter. Naturally, he loved it. The reviews I've seen have been surprisingly positive. The geek sites are going apeturds over it as expected, but the mainstream press is giving it a lot of love too (though acknowledging that it's far...

    First show you ever hated

    Oooooh, yeah, the Care Bears were unbearable, too. (Ha! Unbearable! I made comedy!) Compared to Transformers/G.I. Joe/etc., Care Bears never seems to get called out by the Nostalgia Police as the series of half-hour toy commercials that it was, even though it was just as blatantly...

    The Big Picture: Man of Tomorrow

    You should really let your Boston accent come through more often in your voice-overs. You've said before that you trained yourself out of it because it wasn't a 'correct' broadcast voice - but that's what makes it interesting. It adds character and makes you stand out. Can you imagine Yahtzee's...

    Dante's Inferno

    "Or rather the flunkie realizes the error of his ways and joins the good guys" Oh dear God no - the world doesn't need another Avatar. (Hell, it didn't even need the first one). Our protagonist should be an evil bastard beginning to end. While we're at it, a question for Yahtzee - are you...

    Dante's Inferno

    Here's an idea for Space Game - make the protagonist a flunkie for a brutal and repressive interstellar government. The player has to locate small bands of plucky rebels fighting to restore freedom to the Galaxy and crush them mercilessly. I'll let you know where to send the royalty cheque.
