    @scribl @mjpilon I just sent you guys a Square Sig template. Have fun.

    One of the things that John said during the “Death of Print” panel at PAX East was that Gamepro will soon be dropping reviews from their print mag. Looking forward to seeing that happen.

    @zegolf Power Rangers! That hit me right in the childhood.

    I was there for the 1UP Radio days but never got around to making a square sig. I think I know what I’d do though. If someone could send me the template, I’ll get right on it.

    (I bought it a long time ago and never really had a chance to play with other human beings outside of the demo.)

    I’d also be down for CoH, and then there’s also SC2, if you’re up for that. Beta should be coming back up soon.

    @RedSwirl When given the option, I usually choose to play a female character just because it’s unique. Badass Lady Shepard is far more interesting than badass broshep, if only because it’s a character we rarely see. It’s a bonus that Jennifer Hale’s performance is so incredible.

    Oh, and if you’re playing on PC, Steve Gaynor posted his not-horrible femshep face. I guess you can enter that code in the game somehow?

    @RocGaude I finally got around to reading the first issue of the new EGM. I liked Evan Shamoon’s piece on MetaCritic. I’m not a huge fighting-game fan, so the 10+ page Street Fighter blowjob didn’t interest me much.

    As for reviews, I agree that the names don’t mean anything to me, which makes me less interested. Not that I read reviews anyway. I rolled my eyes at Sushi X though. Really, EGM? Really? Aren’t you a little old for this shit?

    I loved the David Jaffe interview. That’s what I want more of. Couldn’t care less about the almost 20 pages devoted to previews after that.

    I like Gamepro’s new direction, but I’m not convinced that they have the writing talent to follow through. And it’s still too preview-oriented for my taste. That huge interview with David Cage in the first “new” issue would’ve been far more compelling if it’d been conducted after the game released.

    Just like David Jaffe’s EGM interview rings false now that we know his new project is just another Twisted Metal. After he went on about how he didn’t need to make juvenile KILL KILL KILL games anymore. How he felt ready to do something new.

    I haven’t received my second issue yet but judging by the EGMi releases, the reboot isn’t working for me. It just seems to me that the “new” EGM is still trying to be the “bang! pow! video gamez!” rag of the past with a modern format that they can plant onto an iPad.

    Gamepro on the other hand is getting better with every issue. The designs used throughout the mag are clean and modern while the articles are smart and enjoyable. Looking forward to seeing what they’ll launch on the iPad if or when that day comes.

    …and big props to you, Pete! Glad to see that the big boys are taking notice of a truly gifted word smith.
