Which actor / actress would you like to see giving their voice to an on screen character, and what type of character should they play?

Gareth Barry asking for an internship? I know Man City aren't doing great this season but that's still a pretty big drop fella!

Clearly none of the CVG staff have played the Bullseye game on those itbox machines you see in pubs.

Innovation is a great risk, Thief 3 was the weakest in the series (besides this new one that's coming) because of the risks it took. The thing that's ruining franchises now is pandering for a wider audience.

Casually ignoring the fact that the Thief series was an immensely innovative idea to begin with, and without companies trying to be innovative would never have existed at all.

Would you consider yourselves avid collectors of your games or do you regularly trade them in for newer titles?

Say you had to spend a month isolated on an island and you could only bring one game, what would it be?

Any memorial insults you've recieved while playing online?

They've had that island question already, back when this first started. And not one of them questioned how the island had electricity!

Do you think the Wii U is a big smelly pile of donkey dung?


And do you think it will be a flop?

That nintendo question and answer session was ridiculous.

Yes, wii u is having a hard time. So did every console in the history of gaming not named wii. So when you compare it to that sure. Thats not telling it straight though. Telling it straight is not being sensationalistic which this site does. So basically I learned nothing from the editors there. :roll:

Its also funny this site thinks it practices journalism

Considering they get to choose which questions you choose to answer, do you think this serves a purpose? You avoided TerrorK's question as the only honest answer is journalistic integrity means sod all in the gaming industry. You can't honestly say your articles are vetted for bias unless after each one you take the headline writer out and skull f**k him. This is pathetic as I know I can't succeed but I will ask how you sleep comfortably at night?

Considering just last week they had to change multiple bias, and false and vague headlines, Journalism? lol They pick and choose what questions to answer, what to say, in order to VALIDATE, what they do? come on.

Pachter who I disagree with follows me on twitter and we chat ( who hasnt said many a kind thing to nintendo) . Same with jeremy parish, shoe from egm and many others in the industry who I have lively debates with. Yet rob blocked me almost immediately for complimenting him? yeah that is showing respect to your readers and people with different opinions. lol. They talk a big game. But thats all it is.

Id rather here bambi's dad take on issues, at least he isnt a two face

( This is my super honest reaction to this weeks piece. Nothing but my raw feeling on the matter)

Stealth I'm just here to give them feed back. The fact that the masses entertain this as interaction and not PR is just what is wrong with these c**ts, sorry, t**ts. TerrorK's question didn't just call into question the CnVG's staff integrity but that of all journalists. They can't even evoke the it's just banter because the c**ts, sorry, t**ts will pull rank when it suits.
