@corevi: Who's everybody? Both gamespot and IGN have it nominated and no one knows what Giant Bomb discussed yet.

@chilibean_3: If they didn't consider a game to be the best of the month, why would it not make sense that they wouldn't think it was best of the year?

@spraynardtatum: You don't seem to understand what rights and freedoms are and clearly have no idea what the constitution says. They have the right and freedom to do whatever they want with their movie and they chose not to release it. Yes there was pressure for them to not release it but they still had the choice. It's the same thing that anyone releasing controversial material has to go through only in this case the stakes were higher. It's not a free speech issue, it's a terrorism issue.

@sethphotopoulos: I'm not defending the terrorists or saying anything that they're doing is in any way acceptable. That doesn't change the fact that it isn't a freedom of speech issue.

I can't think of any reason to want to see anything in a theatre anymore.

Even if I cared about going to the theatre they're doing the only thing they can. You can't just ignore a threat that they're going to 9/11 theatres. It's only a movie and has nothing to do with free speech.

Movies are completely covered under free speech. Someone wrote it. That's a dangerous viewpoint you're flirting with there.

People throw around the term "free speech" all willy nilly without actually understanding what it means. Sony has the freedom to make whatever they want just as a theatre has to freedom to not show whatever movie they want for whatever reason they decide. No one is going to jail for making The Interview. Sony also has the freedom to deliver the movie in whatever form they want by any means they want.

Where does North Korea fit into your tired example of what everyone has the freedom to do? Because the key thing you're confusing is that Sony and theaters aren't releasing this movie because they have "the freedom to do so". That is a wildly inaccurate way to approach what is actually happening. They aren't releasing this movie because they were threatened to not release it.

Freedom of speech and the first amendment don't shield you from consequences. It shields you from being prosecuted. Sony has the freedom to do what they want with their movie and the government has no say in what they do. They chose not to send it to theatres because they had the choice. Freedom of speech prevents you from going to jail if you tell your boss to fuck themselves in the ass with a Christmas tree but it doesn't prevent you from getting fired.

@alexw00d: @bisonhero: What about the constitution are you guys suggesting should be changed? The first amendment? You're both suggesting that we take freedom of speech too seriously in the US? No...I think that one is fine and 1000% necessary. I'll fight to my dying breath to protect that aspect of my freedom.

What does the first amendment have to do with anything?

I don't get why people are asking for a Ziggler push. He's awful at everything except getting beat up. They also really need to make ladder matches more of a special thing. They're super dangerous and don't really have much impact anymore since we see them so often. TLC match was also kind of dull. Seen too many guys jump off too many ladders through too many tables. And why was a kendo stick the main weapon? Exploding TV was an alright ending since neither guy can really afford another loss.

The thing that bugs me the most is that they seem to not even care about telling a story in the ring these days. The stairs match would have been fine if they had just used their ending. If the ending you're going with is the Big Show needs to use the stairs to pin Rowan, show us that Rowan is a monster who won't be pinned throughout the match.
