You shouldn't have announced that Greg Ford wasn't on. I would have been interesting to see if anyone noticed.

I have to disagree with CJ here. GH5 is like the easyest GH yet, theres a lack of "crappy metal" and with the song list, the charts, the no fail mode, party mode avatar mode, they are going harder for the casuals. Compare it to GH3 which had much harder songs and yes crappy metal, lots of it.

Oh yes, the only other band that could have a legitimate solo game would be Led Zeppelin

The Zombies in Uncharted are the Spaniards that "disappeared" from the island.

I really think that they could do a very interesting Pink Floyd game. Even if they just took The Wall and turned it into a game and take a lot of time with it I think it would be pretty cool.

Metallica being done right would have been pretty good also.

I don't think Sonic will be hand drawn - no way. I just assumed they'd do a 2.5D Kloana type thing in HD.

I just finished Uncharted 3 days ago and I wouldn't call the monsters at the end of the game Zombies because they are not undead. They are more like an army of Gollums on steroids.

I am happy to hear that Greg is going to play Policenauts. My brother has been playing it and it looks really cool. I want to suggest that you make Policenauts our next Game Club game. That or Rocket Knight Adventures, I love that game :)

"Bowser has no idea the Mario Brothers are inside him." No wonder Mario has never been able to seal the deal with Peach. %)

I really need to figure out what I'm missing with Arkham Asylum. I thought it was a really good game--tightly crafted, respectful of the license, etc. But it just never felt like anything particularly special to me. I don't think it would even land in the top 5 games I've played in 2009 thus far--with a crazy onslaught of great games still to come. I wonder if it comes down to your degree of adoration for The Batman.

what a fucking cocktease, Stewy. talking about MadWorld and Uncharted before Batman: AA, HAHA!

btw, funny that CJ got the Uncharted twist completely wrong. wtf CJ, ALIENS? lol. such a shame that Phil never played Uncharted. it's such a great game.

oh yea Stewy, i bought the CE. the Batarang blows but the bounded booklet is really nice and well designed. so glad you guys love the game. i really hope you can finish it up before the next show and talk about the rest. you should also check out the Challenges. incredibly fun.

CJ, CJ, CJ...."Boys" is a cover of a Shirelles song with a few words changed here and there. You should read the trivia that accompanies the photos you unlock... :>

Loads of the early Beatles tracks were covers. My co-hosts' minds were blown (once they stopped not believing me) when I told them Twist & Shout was a cover.

I hope Greg is prepared to regret that decision.

I'm puzzled as to how CJ concluded the Batmobile in AA is the same as the '89 Batmobile, it's not even close. If anything, it takes most of its cues from the Batman Forever one (the protruding wheelwells, the batwing on the top, the visible motor) with a tiny touch of the animated batmobile (the front grill).

yea, that boggled my mind. and you're right, it looks more like the one from Forever. but hey, it's not the first time CJ was wrong about something. :P

That shows a remarkable lack of taste. Batman the Animated Series, Justice League, and most of Justice League Unlimited fit into that timeframe.

Those shows aren't on Adult Swim.

Forgot to add, "not counting the animated Batmans." Because of course I love those.

Comics-wise, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell is really super awesome (although Batman himself appears in maybe 4 panels throughout the whole thing). The game references it a fair bit, too. Highly recommended.

Gotta echo Greg on missing the fun that was to be had during Halo LAN get-togethers. I think that was the only setting where long CTF matches were fucking great. I only got to really do it with the first game. Every match usually ended with us convening in a room to yell at one another and throw blame around before someone rushed to the host and started a new match. Did anyone else ever LAN Double Dash or Air Ride? We actually managed to get two nights of 8 player Double Dash and it was fantastic. Air Ride (specifically City Trial) benefited from LAN because whenever someone found a legendary ship piece, shouts would echo from the other rooms to form temporary alliances to hunt down whoever got the piece(s). It was usually me. I miss those days.

If you decide to pick ODST up, Greg, I'd love to play some campaign coop with you! I'm looking forward to spending the night after release playing through the campaign fresh in 4p coop like I did for Halo 3. That was an insane amount of fun compared to now when everyone is breezing through the levels and complaining about the Cortana segments.
