    They downplayed and dismissed that Marty O'Donnell story right quick

    I actually don't have a problem with Nolan North's No-No Bot. It does seem more cartoon-esque than Dinklebot, but he offers more emotion than Dinklage did in his reading. Yes, North did have more of an idea of what he was reading for, but I like the new emotion the Ghost provides in each situation. I will say that it will take some time to get used to though. I got used to hearing the same voice give the same lines over and over...and over, but at least the Ghost will have lines with each expansion now. It really felt like something was missing when the last couple of expansions came out.

    I think that the reason people didn't like the MGSV falling video is because it felt lazy. When I watch the "Top 5 Videos" or the "5 Facts" videos, I'm usually looking for substance. That video felt like someone recorded the first mission, then lazily edited the transitions just for the sake of getting views. It's less about the fact that you were making fun of MGS, and more about the quality of the content. There really didn't feel like there was the level of quality that AH usually has, and that disappointed a lot of people (me included).

    Everything about Destiny seems like kind of a trainwreck to me, it really seems like the only reason it's popular is people getting addicted to the grinding. Then again I've only played about 5 hours so maybe the end game is more fun. Still I've never quite understood why people love Bungie so much, even as a Halo fan I've always had a lot of criticisms on their games.

    Ok, so I'm a big fan, obviously, but I think working in the industry is skewing how the guys see the spoiler issue.

    I'm sure industry people have things spoiled for them constantly, but a lot of us who don't are perfectly able to avoid most spoilers, largely because the Internet at large has acknowledged the impact and works hard to warn people.

    I feel for you guys, but just because you've had to get used to spoilers, doesn't automatically mean that you should spoil things for others, or that the world at large is overreacting or being dramatic about the issue. Although some people are assholes I'm sure, and I'm not trying to be one here.

    When you guys throw up you hands and say 'spoilers' and then immediately spoil something, that's simply not enough warning for a person who might be driving, or across the room from their TV and unable to pause or stop. Also what's the plan for skipping the spoiler, do we just randomly skip forward, and hope we don't get dumped into spoiler territory?

    The way it's handled in the Game Club is great, if it's about a game people want to play, they just don't watch. Perfect.

    You guys know spoilers suck, be reasonable. Maybe look at what the RedLetter Media guys do on their Half In The Bag show. They have a spoiler free section, then a clear break before the spoilers.

    I know the Spoiler Cast didn't work out, so maybe you wouldn't want to do anything with a 'spoiler section'. I get that, but you're kind of already doing it with Game Club.

    Anyway, still a big fan.

    I actually liked dinklebot better to be honest. I listened to the back to back video and yeah... I think they need someone new doing the voice acting, the actors sound like they aren't being engaged with, which is 100% the most important part of doing voice acting.

    It's meant to be funny in the game, you're falling all over yourself and Ishmael wants to go down stairs

    Back when Titanfall came out the preview program just wouldn't play discs. Was pretty annoying.

    I don't think that North's Ghost sounds too "chirpy", maybe I'm being biased towards Nolan North but it sounds to me like he's just giving more life to the character. In comparison to Dinklebot there's a lot more vocal variation - maybe that's because North is used to bringing his performance through his voice alone and Peter Dinklage didn't have the same approach. Personally I prefer North but I never had an issue with Dinklage's performance either... I'm glad they are changing all of the voice work from the beginning for consistency though.

    thumbnail is inaccurate because Ryan plays a Titan.

      Ryan has one of each. Titan is just the one he raids and stuffs without

    Dinklebot was fine. I feel like people were just angry that they didn't get some super quirky AI buddy when Bungie just wanted to try something different. Not every AI needs to be Cortana or GlaDOS or Wheatley.

    I don't like how happy Nolan North is as the ghost. The entire game is just people saying "the light is dying, the darkness is coming" then the new ghost is like "HEY WANNA GO CAMPING, THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!" I preferred dinklage saying "what the speaker said is what is going on"

    Uh, didn't Ashley and Ryan already talk to each other about they both dated 2 people with the same name? Did they forgot? I swear this happened a few weeks ago.

    I liked Dinkleage's voice, it was fun to hear honestly, especially when there was barely any other voices, other then the weird sounds of the enemies. I don't really have a problem with Nolan's voice either, it's energetic, but whatever. I just don't get why they replaced him, except unless he just didn't want to do it anymore.

      North's voice was uneasy for me at first, but once I noticed that it reminded me of Guilty Spark I felt much better
