All About TheEroica
Spent a long time talking about it and now it's happening.
The System Wars community goes sonic, with a podcast designed by us and for us...
The goal is to bring system wars to your ears and in doing so, allowing the community both a different outlet for our favorite obsession while simultaneously giving us a seperate way to interact. The bottom line is that ALL are welcomed. ALL suggestions will be heard and ALL opinions are valid. We want to hear from you and we want you to bring the same passion you have in the forum to our new initiative. Please feel free to PM both Heil68 or myself if you wish to be on the show or make a suggestion... or just leave a comment in the space below. Looking forward to bringing the fight, and the fun to you wherever you are!
See you in the trenches,

Kinect just isnt what we hoped it could be... not bagging on the attempt, but it, in its current sauce could never be part of my gaming future... Friends, Kinect sucks.
The ever so often evening inhale is made so gracefully smoother when my voice can lead me through the dashboard. Netflix, hulu, MLB, amazon prime... all mine, with my voice. I can pack, grind and roll my way through almost anything I need in my time of healing, by merely speaking... Thank you Microsoft, truly, you take my breath away...
Good night everyone... and good luck.

Had to share... When I was 19, I went to see Slash's Blues Ball at Pearl Street Night Club in Northampton Ma. Slash was kind enough to hang with me and a couple friends after the show and chat about music and guitar. VERY cool.
Curious about an interface...
As next generation approaches I find myself realizing more and more that a controller means more to me than most aspects in a platform. Quite honestly, If I don't like the way it feels to play games I tend to avoid it. I don't and have never liked the DualShock. The sticks feel so out of place. I love the XBOX360 controller, though I have legit gripes with the D-pad. I think the Wii's control scheme is borderline laughable... as in I hate it. Opinion's Opinion's Opinion's, though it leads me to my thought...
What has been your favorite controller in video game history...?
Im just gonna say it... For me, it has always been the NES Advantage.
I loved the leverage I could put on this controller. The variable speed turbo that I could set up for some shooters, the "pause" "pause" "pause" slow down for the tricky spots and the player 1+2 switching to share the love. Big buttons, strong durable arcade stick and a solid double input chord, the NES Advantage was my pearl covered pistol grip in the war against everything video games. While I can certainly agree that it is a controller that would not fit game design today and the fact that it fell out of favor with me when Nintendo released an "updated" NESA for the SNES, nothing comes close for me as a go to controller in gaming history.
