  • What does happen after the tutorial in Avatar? Has anyone actually played the whole game?
  • Reformatting of the gamerscore bootcamp - Twitter Poll
  • The Potentially Endless Bean Dive has passed the 3 year mark! Wow.  MADeyePadEYE, Montana97 and seamonkeypowder are still going strong.
  • People like Jo :) Jo is happy.
  • We want the dream of being able to 100% even if we don’t ever reach it.  However, is this a good reason not to start a game? There is no wrong way to play. We all have scars. But we hate price gouging content - and we don’t want to support those games (e.g: Call of Duty and $15 map packs), especially if we’re going for achievements; however, if you put 100s of hours into it, then it’s worth it for you (Thanks Big El for the discussion point).
  • Re: last week’s video game movie discussion - I like the Mario movie (Jo), controversial, I know - but so bad it’s good :)
  • Sausage weekend….. okay…..
  • Far Cry the Movie
  • Screencheat (or screen peeking) - cool concept for a game (discussion re: Goldeneye, Oddjob was too small)
  • My favourite movie tie-in video game is the LEGO Movie Videogame :) (Jo) - “Everything is awesome” - spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!
  • Quantum Break has gone gold - play it on April 5th (hopefully)
