    My girlfriend has the same problem Alex does with headsets. Then again, I think she abuses them more than the normal person so its probably her fault more than the equipment.

    Good show.  If you’re looking for old adventure games to necro, why not Phantasmagoria ? Also, Police Quest 1/2 were good point and clickers.

      Can I just say I grew up with Sierra games and I still remember them fondly.  I’m not sure what was my fav, I loved Police Quest, King’s Quest, Space Quest and I really enjoyed Quest for Glory.

        I didn’t realize when I typed that, but all the games I referred to were Sierra Online games.  I was always a fan of Roberta William’s games.

    Yay! You’re back!

    I really want to hear some of those future podcasts you talked about. Why guys play women characters (Or don’t, as the case may be) and etc.

      Yeah as soon as Mat mentioned that, I thought that would be interesting.  I know they are very busy but with Mass Effect 3 coming out, Guild Wars 2 having a press beta and other gaming news,  I’m hoping they won’t be able to resist from doing another podcast someday soon. :)

    Hello Matt, Mat and Alex. Really enjoy all the podcast from you guys. But Nitpixels is my favorite. Don’t make me wait so long for this little bit of video game goodness!

    I’ve been watching several videos on youtube of GW2, from the BFF report to the character creation to the tour of the cities.  I must say I didn’t really plan on getting the game because I don’t need it but I’m getting really hyped for this.  I’m already subbed to WoW (Damn you Yearly Sub) and SWTOR even though I don’t play enough of either to justify it. 

    I always been pretty okay with paying a montly sub, no biggie, I’m using the servers, they are giving us content but it’s starting to slowly get to me that I can buy a game and if I don’t love it or just don’t have time for it, I can’t play it at any free time I have unless I pluck down fifteen dollars for that month.  

    I never played an MMO before WoW.  WoW was my first MMO which I began playing just before Wrath in late 2008.  I heard of them before but I wasn’t going to buy a game that I had to pay for each month.  Then I bought some dollar or two disc that had a trial of WoW for a couple weeks.  I enjoyed it and my friend got it so we started playing it.  I haven’t played for a nice while now but I’m looking forward to Mist.

    I tried Rift and I enjoyed it but after six months I wasn’t playing it enough to keep paying for the sub.  I would love to just login the game now and play it for a couple hours but I’m not going to pay the ten dollars or so to do so while I have WoW and SWTOR on my computer.

    I have to pay for WoW each month but the reason I’m also subbing to SWTOR is because it is different then WoW.  I am enjoying the voice acting, questing and my personal storyline along with the fact it’s more Sci-Fi.  

    So I’m very excited for the fact we are going to get GW2, it looks like it’s going to be a very good MMO that will have no monthly sub and you won’t have to spend money even at the max levels to compete.  I’m looking forward to buying the game and not feeling like I’m wasting money if I don’t play for a few weeks.  I’m also very much looking forward to the World vs World PVP.  I’m not a big PVPer but that truly looks like it could be EPIC.  

    Now I just need to find a way to afford to buy GW2, Mass Effect 3 and of course Mist.
