They mentioned it very briefly and laughed at it, and that was about it.

I had this exact conversation with my wife and friends about yelp and breaking down information. # of reviews, negating reviews that are 1 star or 5 stars with only one review, useless information. The worst is your friends writing about how hot/not hot the waiters are or how mean the hostess is.

That said there is some weird fascination about reading people's diary entry about restaurants.

I saw Patrick tweet yesterday (or over the weekend some time) he was planning to record a solo VLR spoilercast. Dude, don't record solo. Spend 5 minutes on twitter and find one of your bay area buddies to skype with.

No one except Kat Bailey has ever pulled off a solopodcast in the games industry IMO and you Patrick are no active time babble

Looking at the actual page, those pictures are from two different persons, and they seem unrelated based on the descriptions.

Ending spoilers and they will give you a clear warning. Brad even does a countdown for it before they start.

True, but to be fair that is less a podcast and more an art form

Also A Life Well Wasted is great, but Patrick is no Robert Ashley either. My point stands, find someone else to podcast with for the spoilercast.

edit: Same with that Kotaku podcast where he told everyone complaining about avatars being dumb is probably spending mad money on the avatar items. Now microsoft is slowly killing off avatar presence again. Hey Lar-bear, I still hate avatars.

On one of those "ripped from the headlines" crime shows like CSI or SVU there was a case where a woman took cocaine by rubbing it into her vagina until she overdosed. LOL

Just curious, what was Vinny's thoughts on the past Halos? I think I remember him saying that he really liked the book that came with the collectors edition of Reach. Seemed like he had trouble getting through 4. Brad seemed like he enjoyed it the most out of them.

I should preface this review by stating that I freaking *love* Mongolian BBQ. Growing up, trips to the Ghenghis Khan in Coddingtown were always a special occasion, and I was simply beside myself when I learned that Fuji--a sushi restaurant that, in my experience, had always been serviceable--was bringing the format to Petaluma.

For some people it's working like for you, for some people it's working like for Jeff, and for some people it's not starting up at all. I've seen people saying they re-downloaded it and it got better, but it's weird to begin with.

Weird. Maybe the OS update last night fixed it? It's an app that breaks some of the operating system boundaries, so maybe that's where Jeff's Vita is having issues.

Fine fine everyone, I concede. There are some good solo podcasts. Regardless Patrick should skype with someone for a spoilercast
