    Another awesome podcast, thanks guys! I was rooting for you to win, and voted a bunch. Next year, Gadget! NEXT YEAR!

    Injustice: Gods Among Us has been VERY hit / miss for me. While I can get on board with the concept, the execution is just laughably bad at some points, particularly with the art. For instance, look at this example from issue #17:

    Well I definitely voted for you folks every day that I could – and it’s well deserved. My suspicion is that you’ll be seeing tons of the Major Spoilers podcasts getting awards all over the place. Shoot I tried to get Critical Hit in for the gaming one myself! You guys are a very happy and important part of my days, and I greatly appreciate all you do.

    Emotion and podcasting; it’s so the new 2k14 marketing tool :)
    No really; we appreciate the love and devotion you put into the podcast, the incredible long hours (and as a parent, I’m stunned at your late night commitments), and the fact you provide the majority of your content for free.

    Kudos to you all.
