With PAX East this weekend and GDC next week, there's going to be a whole lot to learn, react to, and discuss on GameRevolution. We've already thrown plenty of reviews, previews, features and more at you this month, but we can't stop now. So we'll push through, bringing on-the-ground coverage of two major events in the gaming landscape. What will be revealed at GDC and what amazing costume work will Anthony, Alex, and Keri sight at PAX East?
While we gear up for the next two weeks, take a look at the week's top comments and marvel and your fellow readers (or possibly at yourself):

Tell GR: What Is The Greatest Video Game Universe?
9 Thumbs Up - 3 Thumbs Down
Mass Effect hands down for me. Since I played the first game I've been engrossed in the universe from everything in the books to the games with multiple replays.

But Trubbish evolves into Dumptar and then Recyclosaurus! Truly I have no idea.

Tell GR: What Is The Greatest Video Game Universe
7 Thumbs Up - 1 Thumbs Down
I agree completely about Elder Scrolls. The big thing about Oblivion for me was that they had to find a way to justify turning Cyrodiil from a jungle-like area into generic England forestry, so they had a wizard do it and no one mentioned it again. And stuff they did in Skyrim with dragons was just kinda... a lot along the same line. Though it's a pretty cool world. Like how there isn't actually a sun, it's just a gigantic hole in the sky that magic shoots out of. Seriously.

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Review
7 Thumbs Up - 2 Thumbs Down
SCII set the bar for what an RTS single-player campaign should be, and HOTS happily improves upon that legacy. Just make sure to never play on anything below 'Hard' if you know anything at all about RTS games--the zerg upgrades are almost TOO awesome... almost. But yeah the story sucks. What the hell is wrong with Blizzard... it's like they can execute in every area but one.

Rumor: Next Xbox Will Require Kinect, Constant Internet, Game Installs
6 Thumbs Up - 0 Thumbs Down
Well considering that over 40% of North Americans don't have Internet, this is not really a smart move. It's hard to believe, but many people can't afford it, and so Microsoft are closing the door on them. Then again, if they can't afford Internet, they probably aren't preoccupied with playing games or investing in a game console. I think it's closed minded, and I don't think it's a good demographic strategy.
