    Great show! I’m bummed you didn’t get into Crysis 2’s campaign. I didn’t think it was the best FPS ever or anything, but I enjoyed playing through it. It feels more New York-y further into it.

      How long is the Crysis 2 campaign? I’m on a backlog-killing spree and I might be able to squeeze it in. Then again… I just remembered I have Crysis Warhead sitting unplayed on Steam.

    Around 10-ish hours I think.

    It varies, depending on how you play it, but that seems like a decent estimate.

    Well, I’m a new fan and I am hooked on this podcast. I was always looking for a good podcast that can keep my laughing and makes me feel like I’m right there sitting with you all sipping on my cup of coffee. Keep this up!! You have gained my attention!

      Glad to hear you’re enjoying the show Ryan! Out of curiosity, how did you discover VGH?

        Honestly, I liked the artwork or just the whole video on youtube called “Lore of starcraft in one minute.” and I just said I wanted more so I clicked on the link for the person who did the artwork. And thus stumbling on to this amazing podcast talking about video games. Not just call of duty, minecraft, world of warcraft, ect. (All the other big names) But indie games. I personally am a huge fan of video gaming, and I share a lot of thoughts you guys talk about on this podcast. And now you earned a new fan. Keep this up. I will sure to refer you to a lot of my friends who aren’t call of duty nuts. 🙂

        Btw my video game hangover was Torchlight. Oh lordy I can’t stop playing ever since I got it a few days ago from xblm. The controls are iffy but overall the game is amazing. I can’t stop screaming for joy when a epic/rare armor or sword drops I just go coo-coo. Well that is all.

          Yeah! Big props to D.J. Ross for his incredible artwork on the Lore project! And thanks for telling your friends about us! We really appreciate all of our listeners (some more than others…shh!)

          Torchlight is awesome. I can’t wait for the sequel with the rumoured multiplayer.

          Glad to hear you liked Lore and stuck around for the show! This week’s Lore and VGH episodes will be like a deadly 2-hit combo.

          Also, I think Paul means the confirmed multiplayer in Torchlight 2!

            Can’t wait! Well currently I’m going backwards on the episode list.. And I’m hooked! I wish I found this earlier. Now my mornings are no longer filled with me eating breakfast and watching boring Tv. Now its filled with your podcast!

    There’s lot of games I’m looking forward to this fall. Uncharted 3, Battlefield 3, Ico/SotC collection, MGS Collection, R&C:A4O… but the game I’m most looking forward to the most is Elder’s Scrolls V: Skyrim! 😮
    I try really hard not to read anything about it, as I’m confident Bethesda will deliver a high-quality (albeit, kind of buggy) game, like Oblivion/Fallout 3/New Vegas before it. I can’t wait for this game to come out, the anticipation is killing me! 😆

      Skyrim… Isn’t that the new game from Mojang??
