Enjoyed this episode!

On Battlefield: I've never been a big PC gamer but I do vaguely remember the early Battlefield multiplayer being a big deal.

On "tacked-on" multiplayer: I agree with you guys. You pretty much know what you're getting into whether you buy the latest Call of Duty or Battlefield. There aren't any games that I can think of that the addition of multiplayer ruined the single player experience. I think the latest Dead Space added co-op but I'm pretty sure that it was optional.

Great to hear! What did you think about having a guest on the show? Did it make it too busy? Did it enhance the show by adding a different pointnof view and voice? This could be something to consider if we were to have future guests.

I liked the guest host and appreciated their input. My only 'problem' is that the show was a little longer than usual. I had to listen to half of the podcast yesterday and finish it up today.

I don't think I'd like every podcast to be as long as this one but I really enjoyed having another perspective on things.
