Famitsu gave Kid Icarus a 40/40. They've been scoring much higher lately (and are reported to be paid to do this actually) so it doesn't have the weight it used to. Still, cool to see and I couldn't be more pumped.

There was something on gaf about getting free AR cards for that game from nintendo's site. To lazy to look it up again, but I'm sure you can find it!

Haha, already grabbed em. They are free for Club Nintendo people.

In the very least this game is a hell of a package. Apparently tons to do, online multi, free cards and a card game worked in, a free stand (ha) and free Kid Icarus NES 3D classic for preorders. Now whether its all good is a different story.

Holy shit. CBS Interactive bought Giant Bomb. CBS owns Gamespot.

The whole reason Giant Bomb exists is because of problems at Gamespot. What the hell is going on?

Yeah, not sure how to feel about this. The Tested stuff seems like it will be crazy awesome though!

so i read someplace that the ending of mass effect 3 is "awful" "shitty", "wrong", etc. someone care to enlighten me? i've never played any of them and probably never will. feel free to spoil it for me, but use spoil tags of course for anyone else who hasnt seen it yet.

It's short, it isn't changed by the actions of your character in the previous games, and it boils down to a pick 1 of 3 choices type ending. However, all 3 choices are 90% the same. Characters die and you do incredible things to get to the end of that game, at which point it is all made meaningless. There is no "good" ending. You die in every option.

Bunch of lay offs happened at GiantBomb and 1up from what I've seen. Dante, is Patrick done at GB now? Looked like a big list but I wasn't sure if I read the right thing. What's going on over there?

ok yeah i think i read something along those lines but i guess since i didnt play it it didnt mean anything to me. So:

you make three choices at the end all of which culminate to basically the same ending as well as your own character's death? i know the ME games are all about choices so is that whats causing the rukus? because none of the final three choices lead to basically the same thing?

Giant Bomb was bought by CBS Interactive (GameSpot peoples), so they're moving over there. I think all of the actual GB dudes are making the move. Not super sure.

Yeah, it's pretty frustrating. The choices are different, but they all end almost exactly the same way. Also, it should be worth noting that at the end, you destroy the mass relays, which means that all these different races that came together to help you at the end are all stranded on earth, which is now pretty much a wasteland. They're doomed either way.

I don't know what I make of the whole GB/Gamespot thing. It really looks like Tested is going to benefit massively from this, I don't know how this will work out for Giant Bomb but I really hope it works out well.

Definitely looks like a flashback, because he is also in New York.
