A lot has happened in the world of gaming since our last Reader Mailbag podcast – we've got new systems on the horizon and a ton of great games coming out this fall.

Q2: Which multiplayer game (if any) has kept you addicted and coming back for more and why?
Is The Last of Us rally as good as you made it out to be? or are you just blinded by Naughty Dog's track record for Quasi-film games with okay writing and high Production values.

During E3, it seems Microsoft took a step back from their Kinect-centric approach they employed at their conference to reveal Xbox One. How do they expect gamers to get excited for this after showing little implementation of the upgraded hardware in their next-gen games as well as lackluster quality in current-gen games?

For any editor who will be on the show: Kids don't grow up and go to school thinking "I'd really enjoy being an editor for a video game magazine."

What's up with prey 2 anything new info out about it?
what do you think about the marketing strategy that many video game companies are following these days.in my opinion, appealing to a more broader audience may seem like a great idea, however doing so dishonors the loyalty of real gamer's who love the games they have played by changing these games so much so that the game is hardly recognizable...
Is this market change good for the long run or will this end in a mass exodus of franchise games or companies in the future by hardcore fans..
What would you rather have as a cover story OverBlood 3 or Half Life 3?
