Games really do need stickers to be great.

You watching this Infinity ward?

hahahahaha, true, how Metal Gear could have been improved with some holofoil stickers

Also particular favourites is the complete overselling of the word 'Frrrraaaaaaaaaaaagged!", and the picking up of the escort family from the airport

PLUUUUUG!

That had me in stitches.

Anyone got any info on LRR coming to this hallowed grove?

Nice shot at the VGA at the end, it was a nice and funny suprise.

Everything is better with stickers.

If I remember correctly from their podcast, it should be already in January. Should be noted tho, my memory is that of a goldfish.

OT: Hahahaha. Brilliant. Loved how Paul turned his head to the crew as in: "Uhm..help please?"

Even more so than the fact that the people who voted in the VGA's chose the most uninspired, bland, most low brow, and medicore game as their game of the year?

Nyahem.

Actually, upon re-reading that I noticed the answer to my question was in the article. They're coming in January.
I suppose the reason they want to is because on their site they have to pay for the upkeep and everything, whereas if they host on this site they don't pay a thing, in fact The Escapist pays them!

Graham & Kathleen make this show, i love their reports and credit chats! Paul is a man of many names! Man, i love this show!

Yay for cheap bastards!

The testosterone report nearly made me spit tea over my laptop, biggest laugh of ENN for me so far. Keep up the good work guys.

I did snigger at the cheap shot at IGN too

And I love the fact that people are liking this show, so much so, that they seem to be unusually kiss ass about it.

By that I'm guessing MW2 won? I missed it because I was too busy flipping between the VGA's, NFL Network, and Cops.

Any excuse to bring in Cthulu

Also, love the use of XBL dickhead count, brilliant

No. Uncharted 2. MW2 was also bland and uninspiring, but apparently they went with the one with the prettier graphics.

Nah, They are still going to keep their old site. The only difference is that the weekly videos and CH will be posted here, and they will make money from them. Honestly, its the biggest win-win in ever.

Funny .. :D
I love this series !

That is so bullshit. Dragon Age should've won, in my opinion.

Actually, the biggest win-win in ever was when Yahtzee started making videos for the escapist. He got payed, became famous, and wrote Mogworld, while the escapist's traffic boosted dramatically, and put the escapist on the map, overcoming the fact that before him it was just a an obscure video game journalist site, and making people pay attention to it, paving the way for all the other great video series's on this site, like ENN, Unskipable, Apocalypse Lane, Doomsday Arcade, etc.

Yeah, but you have to remeber, compared to the people who voted, which are likely incredible thick and low browed, your high browed and have better taste.

Honestly, I dont take the VGA awards seriously, since it's mainly for douche bag's in their late teens to mid 30's.

Disregard.

Edit: Nevermind, it works now.

You guys got my hopes up with the hookers and blow thing, thought other people did that as well...

I'm 16 and I hardly ever think an FPS is The best of its year. It's like L4D2 getting nominated, that's ridiculous. Uncharted 2 is just the same game as last time but with pretty graphics. CoDMW2 is the same game as last time with more overpowered guns and a terrible campaign.

I never said I thought MW2 would be game of the year. Infact, I said it was just as bad as Uncharted 2, if your saying that I said MW2 deserved game of the year, which I did'nt say.

I also said your more high brow than the people who voted on the VGA's, meaning, that you had better taste than they do, and that you should'nt take the Spike TV VGA's seriously, because it's for douche bags.

I'm just saying that I think MW2 is pretty awful in comparison to the other GotY nominees. I don't take them seriously but when people use them against you to say that the game that I didn't buy is better than what I have, that takes the cake.

Are you saying I did that, or the VGA's?

A year in review and not one mention of Batman: Arkham Asylum!?! For shame

When you guys come back are you goin to do a 'things to see in 2010' ep?!?

well since the majority of gamers are in their late teens to mid 30's i think thats an perfectly understandable demographic.

OT: great episode, i really must pick up club penguin, i actually think it will be an great gift for my brother, thank you ENN.

It's been a good year, let's hope next year will be better!
