Editor's Update: Jim Patton, from Bush League TV, called in during the show. He has played Grand Theft Auto IV for 28 hours straight.

I know, I know — I can't stop with the acronyms. Whatever. Moving on, if you've thought about Grand Theft Auto IV in the last couple of days, you probably fall into one of three categories. 1) You heard about it on NPR and put down your Kierkegaard for a minute, curiosity piqued. What will these internetizen gamertypes think of next! 2) You haven't stopped playing, reading or thinking about Niko Bellic for one moment since.... shhhh or 3) You are shocked, shocked, that there is sex and violence in a video game and wholeheartedly renounce GTA in any guise. We've got something for all three of yous today! A little Adam Sessler (from G4tv), a little Jack Thompson, and of course, your calls and comments.

I confess. I am a feminist. I am non-violent (mostly). I AM REALLY EXCITED TO PLAY THIS GAME.
