hey I was watching the latest unprofessional friday, then saw the Chicago based super professional friday was up and decided to watch that first. Now the san francisco based friday show is missing...........I blame Dave Lang. I have no idea if it was taken down for editing or what, just wanting to know what's up.

Saw Johnny V. post this, and now I got it on loop. I seriously feel like I lost a close friend, RIP to the host of everything giantbomb, you will be missed Ryan Davis.

Thanks man. That makes sense, in spite of the craziness that is "infinite dimension Elizabeths" and "WHAT DO THE POST CREDITS MEAN?" this was the one thing driving me up the wall. Good input through out this forum, you seem to know your stuff, and have answered a lot of peoples with some clear but deep responses.

What exactly is troubling you about the post-credits stinger? Its meaning has been explained a few times. I'm just curious.

Nothing is. I feel like you (also putting in good work on this forum) and some others have really expressed some opinions that make sense. As I got through the last, I don't know 150 comments, people began to really get caught up in the ending and "why does Elizabeth drown him but he's alive after the credits". After spending 2 1/2 hours going through a lot of thoughts and opinions, reasonings and cold hard facts, I get it 100%. And while others are digging super deep on what it all means (and if its connected to Bioshock 1 or 2? Like directly.......like Booker is the father of Andrew Ryan or something which I feel is just reaching for straws at this point, I didn't even feel like investigating into that. I feel its infinite doors, infinite realities of variables and constants, they just found their way to rapture) I was feeling SUPER stuck on one thing, the infinite cycle/old elizabeth. I guess the 122 time things just lined up and worked. I feel like I get it all and you're right it has been well explained.

Just went through this ENTIRE thread over the past few hours and some really fantastic analysis & discussion. Some questions have been brought up that I never thought about and answered but I still have one lingering one some one could clear up? The infinite cycle, where songbird always wins (is this when he knocks Booker across the bridge into the building or when he plays the notes? Ill get into that in a second). So he goes through the events 121 times and song bird wins, Elizabeth gets brainwashed whatever, goes bad, and attacks New York in 1984 121 times. what made the 122 time different where she goes "AH, I need to get booker here, give him the note with the cage, and send him back (or does she always send him back just with out the note?)" what made the 122 time different? What breaks the cycle? I looked out for this question/answer but no luck on finding a difinitive answer on the changed cycle. Thanks

It's simply a matter of variables and constants. These 121 attempts did not happen in the same dimension, but across 121 different versions of the twin Comstock/Booker dimensions. It's hard to say what makes this one different specifically, but Old Elizabeth talks about her limited power. She barely has the strength to reach Booker and send him back to the right point in dimensions. In every other dimension after Songbird recaptures Elizabeth, Booker is left trying to rescue her on his own and is repeatedly defeated (I don't believe this defeat occurs at a single point, rather that in each of the 121 instances no matter what he tries to do to rescue Elizabeth, Songbird thwarts him at every turn).

So this one Elizabeth had the strength to summon this one Booker and not only give him the cipher, but to send him back to Elizabeth directly to ensure that he wouldn't have to find a way past Songbird to begin with. The only way for Booker to beat Songbird is the not fight Songbird at all, similar to the ending where the only way to prevent Comstock from wreaking havoc is for Comstock to not be born at all.

Thanks man. That makes sense, in spite of the craziness that is "infinite dimension Elizabeths" and "WHAT DO THE POST CREDITS MEAN?" this was the one thing driving me up the wall.

So I got the 4 new maps for Uncharted 3, and I want to play a ranked match on them, but I can't. If just one of the 10 people don't have the new maps, the choice is just original stuff. Is there anyway to filter which maps you want to play in a ranked match or am I s.o.l. and just have to hope that the group Im with all got the maps too? Thanks for any input

Misfits is like heroes but done right. Its on a much smaller scale and the special effects can be corny, but that show is really really good, nobody watches it. And I know it does pretty well for Starz, but I don't know that many people who watch Spartacus. That show is so well rounded in its pacing, character development, action is very satisfying and cool, more people need to watch it. And having recently watched Blood and Sand again, I would say its right up there with Breaking Bad and Justified as some of the best television out there.
