I am now absolutely certain beyond all doubt that you have extremely bad taste. So it's easy to see how you are unable to see the similarities in their voices as you are constantly subjected to a barrage of mediocre, bland, whiney, untalented garbage masquerading as music. *the biggest, wettest, most powerful raspberry you've ever experienced*

By the way, it was Haven, not Yobun that made such a clearly misguided and ignorant comment. He will be cared for and rehabilitated soon, though. Quag, if you want to pray for someone, he'd be the best choice.

Fo Sho.

Assuming, of course, it hasn't been filled in already, many times before, by many others. I just couldn't resist that one, you set it up so nicely, Mish.

The story is very well done. You can very much tell its setting up a series of games, but it in no way feels cheap at all. Each of the anti-heroes have unique personalities and they actually develop quite a bit for an fps.

OK FINE! I'll go get a damn 360 already! This game is the only reason so far that's made me want to get one.

The trailer got me interested in this game, and given how critical Midget is of things, it's probably pretty good. Razz Hopefully I can check this out sometime soon.

Kittens and babies from what I hear. While this isn't him, it gives you an idea of what I'm talking about.

That comic is awesome. I really must take the time to go through their archives.

Glad to see my prodigious legend grows... only to be out done by my ego.

Whats the Freq Ken?! Jammin' REM song. My wife understands that there is to be complete silence during this trailer and 3 minutes and 62 seconds thereafter. I hope it comes out in PC format.

I didn't think anyone actually liked that song. For myself, it is my arch-nemesis. Plus, not one mention of Dan Rather in the whole thing.
