I'm kind of surprised you guys all have such a high opinion of JR. He was awesome back in the day, but in the limited times I've heard him announce a match in the past few years he didn't seem like he could keep up with it at all. Also I don't think he ever learned which Hardy Boy was which. I suppose he's still better than Cole and King though.

@clonedzero: Cards Against Humanity has their game under a creative commons license (there might be more to the name of the license, I don't remember), which means you are allowed to reuse it or reinterpret the original material however you like, as long as you give credit and aren't profiting off of it. So I think they're probably totally cool with that online thing, stuff like that is the whole reason you don't have a more strict copyright on it.

Unfortunately I already bought most of these for full price. This is one of the best packages that humble bundle has ever put together in my opinion though, so I guess I'll get it for the one I don't own.

I'm glad they're exploring this frontier. I hope they continue to explore it until they come up with something useful, because this isn't. Not to me at least.

What right do they have to do that? If my grandma sent me money through paypal, could they just say "Hold on a minute, we're going to hold onto half of this for now because we don't trust you to spend this responsibly." People gave the developers their money, it was their choice, and they knew the risk when they did it. Paypal is just a middle man, they're delivering the money to the developers electronically. What right does a delivery boy have to hold on to something you send to someone? This seems like a HUGE overstep of their power.

no it isn't the same, the money was given with the expectation of a product. Paypal is worried that they will have to refund everyones money if a product isn't delivered, so they are holding half as collateral.

I don't think it's right what paypal is doing, but I find it shameful that people are completely ignoring why it's happening. Most people's reactions to this that I've seen are just " they're not giving it to them b/c reasons!!! you should be outraged!!!"

That's ridiculous. Kickstarter and Indiegogo aren't places where you buy games, they're places where you fund games. Getting the game is a reward for your donation, if it pans out. Both sites define the money as a donation, and there's a whole section on each Kickstarter page devoted to the risks of the product, so that you're aware that this isn't a sure thing. Even if this were an online storefront, which it isnt, it wouldn't be up to Paypal to refund the money of people who bought this stuff, it would be up to either Indiegogo, or the creators of the project. This money is supposed to be used to create the game, and they can't actually make the game if they don't have access to the funds they procured to do so. I doubt any of the people who backed this project approve of Paypal withholding the money they donated, especially if it puts the project at risk, which it very easily could. As it stands, hundreds of people told Paypal to give their money to someone, and instead they kept half of it to themselves. I consider that stealing.

So was he offered a ton of money to do Cop Out? I don't get why he did it.

The way he puts it is that he wasn't doing movies for the love of them anymore, he was doing them for the paycheck. But now its like, different, mannn.

@arbitrarywater: Well the first halves of the two shows are pretty similar with a couple of notable differences. The beginning of the original had a much slower pace, things that took one episode in Brotherhood were twice as long or more in the original. Brotherhood also thankfully abandoned a few filler episodes. Maybe this was due in part to the pace, but the original also had a more serious tone. They spent a lot of time dwelling on some of the more emotional bits, and in Brotherhood some of these things were even played for laughs (like teachers illness). Animasta covered most of the stuff that occurs after the split in the middle. Really though, even if it doesn't hold up, you should watch it, it's a totally different story, it just has the same beginning. Even with all those spoilers we barely scratched the surface.

My thoughts on Adblock are that it's radical, and kind of immoral, but I don't give a fuck anymore. Whitelisting a bunch of sites makes me alleviate the guilt I have for doing something that I know is wrong, and I'm totally okay with this compromise.

That's a pretty decent list, the only ones who aren't on there who I'd really want to see are Gyarados, Marowak, and Arcanine. Honestly though, no one should believe this leak. Something about Pokemon games just invites people to make shit up, I've seen so many rumors before every Pokemon game that never panned out. More so than any other franchise I can think of.

Wobbuffet is on the list.

No, I don't think this is real.

Excited if it does turn out legit, though. Volcarona has been paying off for me quite well already.

Fun Fact: Wobbuffet is already one of the most powerful pokemon in the game.
