It's still a great show to listen to and honestly a decent bit of the slowness can be attributed to the fact that we've been in the horrible summer drought where nothing really happens in games. I'm sure things will pick up more in the coming weeks and especially when new consoles launch.
From what I've heard, if you've saved with this bug/ since the patch, you can look forward to a corrupted save. I heard about this too late and am now dreading the fix that will apparently kill my progress.
So after the initial sour taste, I'm totally on board with where this story is going. Bryan's revenge has a very clear path laid out now with him having to make his way through the Shield before getting to Orton and eventually the McMahons. Here's hoping they're able to pull this all off and we get what could be the best storyline in a while.
