2nd annual Pete Dodd liveblog brought to you by my trusty iPad 1.

Best giant bomb chat around, thanks for that. Great insights.

On the psn when you buy a pack of something the individual items get a red bag icon denoting that you own them.

Ridge Racer is fun.

Mike's drawings in Draw Something are pretty damn amazing.

I'm pretty sure I heard cj sigh when everyone said they liked the vita. Teehee.

I'm curious about the strategy aspects of dynasty warrior. I think I'm doing it wrong. Really enjoying the game as a button masher though.

Wait, cj just said he is playing it a lot. /faint

How has the iPad 3 not been brought up yet other than a joke?

Lmao @ aeris being killed by Seth Rogan.

Mortal Kombat looks like a lot of fun.

Saddest starfox story ever :(

You didn't read my tweet! Jerkstores!

I love Greg Sewart. Wait, was that outloud?

Ha, you guys just made a love joke.

If you guys do get the part of Aerith, you can be rest assured that no one will be disappointed in a Final Fantasy VII remake no matter how badly Square messes it up.

I have been having similar problems with the 360 version of Mass Effect 3. Lots of graphical glitches (characters disappearing, Shephard's head turned sidways during conversations, people sinking into the floor up to their knees or floating 3 feet off the ground). I'm also hearing static at times and the voices are sometimes out of sync. At least with the PS3 version you don't have to swap discs every 2-3 hours.

Phil, I can remember several times where I had to make a late night run for Mylicon. One of the things that helped mine was to lay him on his back and pump his legs to where his knees push into his stomach. It usually helps to get things moving and relieve a little pressure. Of course you want to be gentle about it.

So are people just using their fingers for Draw Something? Or are styli/styluses the go, I have fat fingers!

I was really hoping this episode would be called "Cadbury Bukake."

Draw something is a lot easier with an iPad.

Drawsomething is a massive hit in my house, unfortunately I have 1 child that can spell but can't draw, and the other that can draw but can't spell. It can be frustrating, but generally it's funny. The best thing about the game is that it shows you how talented people construct a picture.

I had to laugh when Mike managed to draw a knob into a picture for the word ARMPIT.

everyone i know is hooked....its brilliant.

Its amazing that the "with friends" people weren't the first to rip off pictionary.

They were the first with scrabble, boggle, and hangman.

Mik, your PS3 Mass Effect glitches seem pretty intense. I played it on PS3 as well, and while I did encounter the shitty framerate, I didn't run into any of the super problematic stuff you're experiencing, like the audio breaking and stuff. Maybe I just got super lucky.

That's the impression I'm getting too. Sucks, because I'm usually the one who gets to say, "really? I didn't have any of those issues." I like that position better.

And DrawSomething is challenging Journey for game of the year. ;)

You make a great point about GiantBomb. I'm not ashamed to admit that I love most of the content they produce, but I can't think of any decent way to monetize it.

I'm not really sure what's in it for Gamespot, cause they must know that the GB community is small and completely insane, and it's not like it's the most highly respected site outside of that group. If GS inadvertently poisons the well, the site is as good as useless to them.

The thing about GiantBomb's video content is it's quick and cheap to produce. The 1up show didn't make sense for such a niche market -though I really liked it.

Ps. I also love the video content GiantBomb does; it's easily my favourite gaming site.

My 360 copy of Mass Effect 3 locked up last night in one of the very last cutscenes. Thank goodness for auto-saves, but I was still stunned and horrified when it happened.

Also, how do you guys feel about the number of words available in Draw Something? I think the thing that killed the game the fastest for me was the high frequency of repeats. The sixth time I saw carwash did me in.

They recently updated it with more words. But yeah, there are far too few. In fact, there's really too little content in general. I've already bought all the available color sets. :\

Too few words Is retarded! It's not hard to add words.

Does the paid version of the app have more words? Or is it just paying for ad removal?

You also get 400 coins, which is enough for about 1½ new color packs.

According to the store listing, it's 2000 additional words

I paid the buck because I figure I'll have a good time with it, but I hope they do boost the vocabulary. That's something that certainly couldn't be that difficult.
