If Hero would only breathe now and then.

Sorry you missed the end of the show Flames! Hope the ball game was fun. Raviolicaponiwas ready to put you in your place.

I have my money on you.

We did not get enough people together to do the bus drive by, but it was good fun nonetheless. We have to try that again some time.

Thanks again to all the callers! You all made the show great!

And big props to the Daddy! He tried to hang up on us after a couple of minutes, but we made him stay on. Good job mate!

Wii joke was MAAAD funny. But I like Fire...Its cool to get another perspective on gaming from the opposite sex. 16 man bus ride was a great idea too. I'll be trying this myself.

First of all: why do I always feel like the show intro is the beginning of a 70's porno? anyway...

Thanks for the shout Hero, you know I love you. But Ravioli man, I'm sorry your views are ridiculously skewed. You can't generalize like that, especially if you're new to console gaming, because pc and console players are very different, especially the females. I mean you have the right to just not like her, but to not like her because she's a female gamer? come on you're an adult.

The comment about the breasts? yeah that was very wrong, in fact to let you know, I have someone working on my next tattoo: a game/anime version of myself... with giant guns and even bigger boobs... so thanks, your generalizations just prove any point I have ever made about females and males attitudes towards them in gaming.

And to let you know, my husband has no problem with the fact that I'm a gamer... just that I'm better than him. Nor do any of his friends that I talk with... OR any of the male customers I dealt with when I worked at Gamestop(save one incident that almost got me written up).


Ok, now as for GTA.... sorry Hero but I'm just not feeling it yet. Don't kill me, but it's just missing something for me, maybe I just haven't played enough but it's not working for me yet. YET I said....


.... and I want a t-shirt when you get 'em out, send me a message, I think I'll be a bit busy in the coming weeks.

The baseball game was really exciting and the seats were SICK... but I am still sad I missed the end of the show. I'm especially sad that I missed my chance to go head to head with Ravioli.

Next live show... it's on like donkey kong!

Well I enjoyed doing the show and I thought Chinny was very funny, unfortunately I now have a mental picture of a man with not one but two controllers down his pants vibrating to Rez HD.

As for the t-shirts i am going on a McDonalds diet for the next 2 months to increase the size of my man boobs in preparation for the wet T competition, I'm going to try to increase to a G cup, with no need of plastic surgery.

By the way Flames I think you've been a good addition to the show as you play more varied games, so it adds a bit of variety, good job.

The 16-player bus drive-by WILL occur sometime this weekend, even if I have to start letting randoms into my lobby! One way or another, it's going to happen.

Just call me the bus driver, cuz I'm takin' everybody to school! smile

Hey guys its me the male chauvenist gamer.And yes im new to xbox 360, iv had it for about a year and half but im no stranger to video games.Iv been playing video games since Pong which probably makes me sound old.There are quite a few male gamers at my job and topics about things such female gamers do come up.Granted we are all married men and perhaps the sound of a chic talking on live while playing halo in pink Spartan armor reminds us of our nagging wives at home telling us to mow the lawn, I dont know. But what really made me write into the show was when FIrenFlames gave her review on Viking:Battle for Asgard.It was like she missed the point of that game and sounded like that chic who doesnt have a clue what shes talking about but just keeps talking because she enjoys the sound of her own voice.What about the full decapitations and dismemberments! Anways, I love the show and I'll continue to listen no matter who is hosting.But please guys, be careful and dont turn this show into "The View" cus I have enough things I already have to watch and listen to with my wife.

Hey just listened to the show last night, wish i could have made for the live one they are always bettter. I am kind of sad after listening, I realizied i do not have a nemesis, and other people like to play Rez, on the other Hand

It was cool the way you guys defended your girl. That is the how you a girl knows if she is in or not. Regardless of my opinion, which i don't , she has been accepted as one of the guys like it or not.

dictionary.com speaks like that. Look it up, it helps you write pieces of text correctly.

It also helps you use correct words in sentences and not word like "chic" when you should be using "chick".

Chic has a completely different meaning to chick.

Here end the lesson in english.

Actually you should have used 'Endeth' which is the correct use, for the context of the sentence.

So unfortunately you are both incorrect.

I tried to make sure I had the correct spelling of "endth" and dictionary.com wouldnt bring it up!! So I never used it in the end!

The point I was getting at is that if you are going to criticize someone at least getting the spelling right.

But isn't that what you just did? You criticized me and ended up with a grammar error yourself. You have to be the first person i've ever seen try to act like a human spell checker.You should call Microsoft and maybe they can replace that paperclip cartoon they have in Office with your avatar.

I reckon you could have all three, "here end the lesson", "here ends the lesson" and "here endeth the lesson". All are will be correct.

I just was sticking up for the guys (or gal). They all do this without getting paid and I think we should cut them a little bit of slack. I miss the old days of Bling, Gunnz, Hozt and Hero but still enjoy the new pod cast and the new podcasters. Chinny, I agree, I dont like the sound of my own voice either.

Raviolicaponi, I didnt mean for it to go this far, like I said I didnt like seeing Flames getting stick. Hopefully you can accept my apologies.

Well said Lazybones, one of the things that has kept me coming to 360plex all this time is the community, and the fact there is no flaming and there's no male macho bullshit.

Anyone is welcome to the site,and are always made welcome, so lets start a fresh with Ravioli.

Welcome mate and stop with the bickering and just enjoy the community, you might even get to like flames (even if its only a little bit).

Hey huys, really enjoyed the show, and all I could notice was that one the daddy joined Hero all of a sudden started sayong "mate" a lot with a slight english accent.

Awesome show guys, you should take more calls.

Cool, thats fine with me.All I really want to do is talke about gaming and gaming news.I kinda got my recognized in 360plex in a negative way with my email and then going on the show so i've been on the defense lately.But to move on.......I wll say that was really funny when The Daddy talked about being too nice of a driver not wanting to hit pedestrians.I was the same exact way so I could relate to that.But what happended after while was I started getting too much in a hurry to get to my destinations that I started running over anyone who got in my way.Don't worry The Daddy, you'll get over wanting to be a nice driver soon enough.

I did actually, after about an hour in fact, and now I'm a regular hit and run specialist, but even now if I'm not in a rush to get somewhere, I still find myself stopping every now and again.

What was funny the other night, I was taking Michelle out and had no car so she told me to get a cab, but instead of hailing one I just pulled out the driver and stole it, I did hit a couple of people on the way to where we were going and she got a bit nervous, but after the date when I dropped her off, she made a comment, that sometimes it was nice to be bad.

Last night we were playing free mode and stole two tug boats to go site seeing, and obviously shoot cops on the shore, but what was funny was we ended up miles from the shore and one of the guys blew up the boat which sank. it was then like a scene from Open Water, with no way of killing yourself, I was just waiting for the sharks to turn, which I have to say would have been very cool.

I wanna thank The Daddy, Tengo, Fortune, Lazybones and Foot thanks for the kind words regarding my place in the podcast.

Ravioli... we can talk on the show if you have more comments to share and I will respond to the ones you've written here.

Good show this week everyone. Wish I would have called in to talk about GTA. The game really is good, and I hope some of the people that maybe don't think they would enjoy it, would give it a rent. If you miss this one, you might be waiting a while for a game of thus caliber to come around again.

Good show, strange attack against FirenFlames though, I did not think that video gaming was a gender based pastime. No need to alienate anybody is there?

Good to hear you on there Daddy, a northern accent made a big change.

We do not all talk like Dick van Dyke and say "hello mate" Getting tired of hearing the "guys from across the pond = hello mate" thing. Jokes wore thin now.

The dead air then everybody tries to talk over the top of each other gets annoying otherwise excellent as always.

As for GTA I am only 37% in and loving it. So much to do it's crazy!
