When there aren’t any scoops during the week, there isn’t much for GameScoop! to add to existing coverage, but Greg Miller’s Knockin’ Boots segment covers infidelity and threesomes, and Hilary Goldstein keeps the show rolling.
The crew hits on most of the big new from the week, including GRIN studio’s closure, and the Xbox 360 dashboard update. Hilary is still disappointed with the pricing, having confirmed that most of the Games on Demand are the same price or more expensive than retail prices.
Nielsen Research has released data that the Xbox 360 is the first next-gen console being used more than the PS2, but in the mailbox section, the crew recommends the PS3 for new gamers given its reliability and hardcore game selection.
It’s an extra long Knockin’ Boots segment as Hilary has his own story about an old flame, and the crew reads a lot of emails on how to greet IGN editors, how they pick their game identities, and when they’ll be too old to game.
