Quotes: Loads and Loads of Loading
THD: I feel up to a boss, don't you, Tom?
NTom64: Hmm, is this loading screen the boss?

THD: I'm so glad that this cutscene of the Cerberus being destroyed was sandwiched by loading screens, because that's what we needed!

I found myself musing on this while I waited for Bionic Commando to install itself on the PS3, then download an update, install the trophies, then lock itself in the bathroom for an hour to pluck its eyebrows, and even once I'd waded through the cutscenes and tutorials and gotten to the bit where I get to press buttons, the loading screens broke up the action so much I can now see the words press X to jump every time I close my eyes."

Pat: Thanks for the loading screen, before the loading screen, before the black screen.
Matt: Pre-load the loading screen.
