I gotta admit, this is the first of your casts that I've watched, and the first of MMOBomb that I've seen, but you've really made a good first impression. As a gamer girl I don't really feel like people recognize girls exist in videogames (which is why you hardly ever get a female character in war games, and in games where you do get them you're forced to be the town skank) but your noticable efforts to include both genders make me feel that you're going above and beyond the typical game talk to make something that actually gives us real information that's friendly to everyone. In short: thanks guys!

Played Prince of Persia: The Sands Of Time, really a classic, nervertheless, I hate freemium games that are just free to lose, pay to win, for example Jagged Alliance Online, a game like it should never be played by a person who is not going to pay, and as I always think, games that got a cash market, ok, but if the benefits are too much, the game dies, World of Tank in other words, is very good, because you can get premium which will only give you some exp bonus, credits, but the battle won't be lost against a premium, because if he is using gold ammo, his ammo will have a counter-point, while penetrating more it has less damage, which makes it fair, unlike other games.

For the question of this week, my favorite villan is...
The Vizier!!
Maybe some of you dont know him, he is the villan of The Prince of Persia:The Sands of Times series, it really make me mad with the final battle and all that "mind control" and you need to evade from flying rocks and trying to hit him.Such a great time =P

Hey from the Netherlands again. Great show as always guys and I don't know if you are making the episodes live but if you don't, it may be good to cencure the nickname that Brim used for Hawken :).

I love the the Firefall contest, problems for me: I am a total noob in making trailers and I never win this kind of things. I maybe going to try this.

Anyways the thebomb I wan't to give this week is to you guys because you make great shows and make other people and my day. Thumbs up for you guys.

WHats next..Turn yourselvf into a mount and low level players ride you?!

But I think I said this on Episode 3 or 4..Point ME too the Itunes link. I myself don't have itunes, but I am more then willing to endore something I like.

Anyway, I do like thie episode because it does adress an issue I had with Hawken...if its pay to win I won't drop a cent..if its balanced*enough* with its cash shop then I will customize my mech just for because well..hell Armored Core fan here.

Anyway, greated veido game villian ever..is...wait for it..is..Liquid Ocelot..yea thats right MGS.

PS: Don't ever ever play the same 30 seconds over and over again..IT was ugly.

Hey Magicman ! How are you doing?
Another fine episode :D

As for your question for this week. I see you refered to jigsaw a few time's in this episode, hahaha
than have i got a name for you that would put jigsaw to shame ;)

Lionel Starkweather ! (ring a bell ? )

One of my most favorite villans of all time!

Drum roll Plz ...............

Game : Manhunt - 2003 ps2

This guy got his kicks on filming you murder people to boost his tv shows ratings, always telling you he wants more blood , more death, in unmaginable ways.
All the while whispering in your ear and getting off as your doing it.
But i did love it.

I have always loved Rockstar and been a fan of all thier games since day 1
One of the true companys to always know how to push the medias buttons , and this " Villan , so proved to us all why!

Keep up the good work and talk to you soon.
Your friend Inflictious!

Fyi: one way of making a FPS unique is by weapon customization, like in blacklight.

I really hate companies pushing for "Freemium" and Unlimited free trials. I'd rather companies just go fully free2play, like Ijji, Aeria games, and Gpotato.
