Xbox 360 Fancast 033 -- "Fanboys" No More


The Xbox 360 Fancast keeps on rocking and rolling towards a new era, an era where fanboys of all stripes can live in peace. This week we talk about the Time article on Halo 3 that received a lot of (unwarranted) complaints last week, the Call of Duty 4 beta, luscious Team Fortress 2 action, and the mind-melting insanity that is Silent Hill V. After the break we voice our opinions on the Xbox 360 repair process and take some time to address fanboyism. Be sure that there is a sharp distinction between a fanboy and fanboyism. A fanboy -- by our definition anyway -- celebrates gaming on all levels, though he or she may lean towards console or another. One who practices fanboyism, well, they're the kind of people you avoid in the dark recesses of the internet (of which there are many). Download the show below for an introspective look at the world of console fanboyism. Dr. Phil would be proud.
