    Nice podcast, I feel sorry for ya though mark, COD haters are some of the biggest jokes on the internet. Its like their mad because fans get a top quality game yearly. They show the new ability with graphics that they have and little pathetic trolls jump into action going all they have is fish and dogs.

    Trying to say the size of the xbox one will cause issues with travelers is a bit funny too.

    • ImperialAgent

      (I haven’t listened to the podcast yet so this isn’t a reply to that but thought I’d reply to your comment about Cod hating)
      I completely agree with you Andrew. The gaming industry and fanbase has more than its fair share of snobs. People that want to think of themselves as superior and more alternative and interesting than the the dumb masses that like CoD etc. They criticise it for being the same each year when it’s a feckin real-world fps. A technically improved game with new levels and weapons etc is what fans want. Criticising CoD for not drastically changing is like criticising FIFA or Madden for the same thing. People even talk about CoD clones but manage to blame CoD rather than the clones… which is completely illogical.

      • Arthur Hughes

        COD Is the Best FPS made currently, Its has the hi paced action that FPS fans love. It has a ton of game modes, Hell Zombies from Black ops could be sold separately and probably sell 10 million (Spec ops from MW is fun but not nearly as in depth Although they do keep improving the amount you can do in them).

        Black ops 2 almost 10 months after release is still the top played game on Xbox Live. hell MW3 is 4 and even the original black ops is still in the top 10.

        The people that complain about it usually just really suck at it and have to come up with an excuse. It reminds me of the days of NFL 2k vs Madden. NFL 2k while a fun game, had a lot of serious flaws and could never make real strides into maddens dominance. (don’t even get me started on the NFL deciding to sell the license to one company and people get mad because EA bought it. I would of loved to see where 2k Would of been today)

        Personally im greatfull to have a great FPS every year to play. (I just wish EA would give up on trying to compete directly with it and release BF late spring early summer like titanfall is)

        • ImperialAgent

          It fulfils a need at the end of the day. As do Arma3 and BF4. Not every every fps needs to be a soldier-sim like Arma or more run and gun like CoD. It’s good that we have options when it comes to the fps genre. I dunno about CoD being the best necessarily there’s some stiff competition but the shit it gets is ridiculous. All 3 are good and CoD’s single player is simple excellent fps action with some amazing set-pieces.

      • TomDobo

        To be honest i like cod and i always have. I just dont think they can beat battlefield. Battlefield is by far the superior. I just hope cod can get back on track because the last 3 have been shit.

        • Arthur Hughes

          COD destroys battlefield in players and sales. ( I actually enjoy both games they provide differnt styles of game experience)

          • TomDobo

            Bf4 has more preorders but i love them both. But lately bf has the edge.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Please dont turn into to bizzy on me, Look these things up before you make claims.

            Ghosts more preorders

      question for the elementary school kid Arthur( admit it). Has your parents ever taken you on an airplane yet? It’s fun:). Ask them nicely to take you with them next time they go on vacation;)

      • Arthur Hughes

        Your not worth the time troll.

        • Danny

          Yet your still taking the time, lol. Wow just call me the puppet master. Size and weight matters for travel. Once you go to Disneyland you’ll understand. Check out Splash Mountain, but you have to be at least three feet tall:).

  • jfelts

    The problem with the brick is that it is just another strike to mark off. I mean, would you rather have a brick or not? Exactly.

    • Arthur Hughes

      It straight up does not matter. My 360 has a brick and it just sits their hell i could not tell you the last time i saw it.

      • jfelts

        But if nothing else changed, would you rather have a brick or no brick?

        The problem I see is with the people that hang their tv on the wall and want all the cables hidden for a cleaner look. It would be really hard to hide a brick. So I’d simply prefer to not have one.

        In my case it doesn’t matter. I could easily hide the brick behind my cabinet in the entertainment center. But if I had a choice, I’d rather not even have to do that.

        • Arthur Hughes

          Is this some kind of joke? you can’t go if nothing else changed brick or no brick. If they wanted the brick in the console it would be their. Its obvious they have a reason for it not to be their

          Lets try it this way

          you can have a brick and the chance of your console overheating is almost 0. Or no brick and now you have a 10% chance.

          • Danny

            Or you could just get a PS4 which just runs cooler even without a brick as the PS3 did.. Brick doesn’t equal cooler.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Thank your for coming here and identifying yourself as a sony Troll. Its always nice when they just come out and tell us.

          • Danny

            Oh sorry, didn’t know this was only for xbone fan boys. I own them all. You guys can go back to patting yourselves on your backs. I thought this was for normal people. My mistake.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Its normal people then the few trolls we got like bizzy, rscoe6969, and you. Its good you came out so quick as a troll now nobody will confuse anything you say with something anybody will ever want to read

          • Danny

            You still haven’t said anything. You don’t even contest that the ps3 ran cooler. You might as well be saying nah na nah. Isn’t that what a troll is?

          • Arthur Hughes

            when you say something like “Brick doesn’t equal cooler.” it just shows me how big of a retard you are and is pointless to try and tell you anything.

          • Danny

            Then why did the 360 have over heating problems and a brick while the PS3 did not have a brick and did not have overheating problems? The Xbone needs a brick. There are plenty of laptops, computers, and everything else that don’t need bricks. It’s called better engineering;)

          • Danny

            and another one bites the dust..

          • Arthur Hughes

            Like i said trying to explain something to a retard is pointless.

          • Danny

            Yet you keep trying lol..no answer fan boy? Keep the logo:). It suits you:)

          • Arthur Hughes

            you can have one now too.

          • Danny

            Lol, well at least you admit it. Good on you boy.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Pathetic troll kid

          • Danny

            Now that, is original. My fitting comeback is, I know you are but what am I? Are the kids still using that one? Just wondering.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Pathetic troll kid

          • Danny

            Your logo is Xboxone, but I’m the fan boy?

    • RECKLESSgoat

      Doesnt matter, I wouldnt care… its nothing that can change my mind about the xbox one.

  • Danny

    People travel..Get it? Maybe not in your circles but in mine everybody travels, works abroad, etc; soldiers, contractors, international businessmen, and their families too. I spend part of the year in one country and the other part in another. But who cares about people like that when you live at moms right?
