Okay, so maybe this isn't that game related but...

I was laughing about how the guys on the last podcast were besmirching a "foreign" review for Uncharted 2.

I want to know, do we even have three people here from the same country? We are all foreigners right?

I think Australia is winning right now with me, Foolz, and DarthHomer.

And the besmirching, if I recall as I haven't listened again yet, was on the ridiculous 21/20 score.  I don't care where it's from, that's just stupid.

Here's my dataset

If Coopersville had viewed GG Weekly since last Friday, we'd be ahead of you pesky Aussies.  Kaepora as I understand it is in Britain, so they ought to have 2.

I think the term foreign as used in that segment was not describing a magazine from another country to be exact, but more like describing this weirdo magazine that no one that reads english magazines knows about. I wouldnt call Edge or Play foriegn magazines the same way I call that mag. Its more about the language than the country.

This website is made by GG and Yoda. So everyone who's not Canadian or British is a foreigner. Actually the time zone of this website is British . So one could argue that everyone not British is a foreigner.

Iga has more than everyone else because he posts a lot of useless crap . . . like PC news. Nyaa
