As far as reviews go, I'm not too partial to them. I prefer the Retro Reviews. Although, you could maybe give mini-reviews instead of full ones.

I really enjoyed the Planescape: Torment retro review in this episode.  It is the best game I have ever played so it's always nice to hear from another person who enjoyed it.  Some of your details were a little off but that's okay.

Hey steve, right at the start of your preview, when you talk about being able to talk to the guards for directions and such, You mention atleast twice that the imperial city is Small. Can you clarify that? The Imperial City is supposed to be the biggest city in the game, and/or atleast it's supposed to be bigger than Vivec from Morrowind. Which as I recall, wasn't exactly small.

It is Sennheiser, not Sennheisen.  Created an account to say this - I am a headphone nerd (aside to other people here: yes, high-end sound is actually possible with headphones - most consumer-level headphones are total crap; for instance, Bose, which is considered the best by the average person [thanks to advertising and consumer ignorance], actually makes horrible, extremely-overpriced headphones) and it irked me that you couldn't get the name right.  I also have used headphones only for playing games on my PC for the past several years.

Otherwise, pretty good, looking forward to Oblivion (although you made some mistakes there, too, heh).

I am excited, the Oblivion preview almost starts  :D. The Game News was very interesting especially the info about Red 5 Studios.
A multitude of rulers is not a good thing. Let there be one ruler, one king.

I might have just been a section of the city that I was in that felt small. Some sections of the cities have more going on than others. There are so many cities in the game and so many of them are so big that almost lost track. This game is really really big, I wouldn't worry about it.

Oh cool Planescape Torment! I heard a friend of mine rave about that game once. As it was the only game he ever played, but I though it was just one of those Myst/Riven like games with a sight Baldurs Gate twist, but now I'm certainly going to try it!

Btw, I already thought the "Name this Game" sounded familiar, got that game, played a bit, not much(was young still, didn't understand much of it, 13 ish of age, my english sucked big time). My brother played it a lot. Very nice game, ah the memories.
