Like John said, it's great to see you've gotten this far; I'm sure there were moments, whether several or many, that you had to think long and hard about if you guys were going to continue, and it might have been the harder choice, but you guys stuck with it and really should be duly congratulated for it. I can't wait to see what you guys are like a year from now. I actually went back and listened to the very first podcast; I can see what you guys were saying about editing and poor quality, and the change since then has been incredible.

Congratulations! It's been a great ride so far and it's nice to see that you're far from finished.

While I think the Xbox rumors will all be settled when the damn thing is finally announced, I don't have such high hopes for Assassin's Creed. It'll be as cinematic as ever, with counterattacks as ridiculous as ever, but it's lacking that spark that started the series. Now we're simply talking about pirates and the like. Remember when the Apple first blew your mind? Can we please get that again?
