I enjoyed the end of Episode 3, just getting a small glimpse of how big of a badass Bigby is. I got hype as I was mashing that button.

Is this the obvious conclusion, or am I on the fringe for thinking that maybe they actually DID go with the "using The Streak to elevate a younger guy", just indirectly? Keep in mind, I'm new to this stuff (and also haven't actually watched RAW or Smackdown, just perused the recaps), but it seems like they're using Heyman to funnel some of that prestige to Cesaro. In hindsight, that would make a lot of sense, because Cesaro gets the boost of getting picked by "the manager of the guy that broke the streak" without taking the heat of being "that giant baby-looking motherfucker that beat up an old man".

But again, maybe this is all super duper obvious if you actually watch the shows or know any background information.

The streak was for Heyman, WAAAAAYYYYY more than Lesner.

It's a feather in Heyman's cap, while Lesner eats and sleeps, before finding a thing to Conquer (most likely DBry's title) again.

I'm ... not sure about this Threes thing. It's not exactly the first time a blatant copy of something gets pretty popular and where the original doesn't get the credit it may deserve, even if the most popular people copying it are trying to be open with it. Minecraft is a pretty famous example, Notch was always pretty open about it being based on InfiniMiner, yet that got lost in most of the reporting and very few articles talking about the popularity or even history of Minecraft do what it seems Patrick and Max expects out of these journalists, that the fact that it's a clone has to be mentioned. Hell, Call of Duty 4 constantly is mentioned as the game that created the multiplayer unlock system, despite that being a thing in Battlefield 2, three years prior (and even BF2 may not have been the first to do that). Should Spelunker have been mentioned in any of the Spelunky coverage we've had on Giant Bomb?.

This entire Threes thing, just make me feel... uneasy about the whole thing. Like it's a mistake, but the reaction to it SOOOO overblown, I just stop reading. Like what does berating the guy do, yeah he could edit it and fix it, but the damage is done and the shaming has been done.

Is he gonna throw himself on the cross for something that EVERYONE in the know already knew about?

Trigger did it! Kill la Kill is officially a top tier anime classic.

I was praying SO hard for Trigger to stick the landing on this one, and man... they SOOOOO did.

I will never get the craze over the rage at pre-orders. If you want it, you want it, I'm not gonna tell an adult what to dowith their money.

If the game sucks then well... THAT game sucked, I got burned on Pre-ordering Thief,but I made out pretty good on South Park and Dark Souls II, so it's pretty much a crap shoot.

So you're saying that pre-ordering is a good way of buying games because it doesn't 'burn' you most of the time? If you didn't pre-order any of those games and just bought the one's that still seemed purchase-worthy a day or two after release, you'd probably get burned zero times.

People seem to pre-order because of pre-order bonuses but pre-order bonuses exist because publishers want you to preorder. It's basically a self-perpetuating scheme that doesn't help anyone but the publishers who want to make you feel like you're missing out. Take the tiny hit of missing out on pre-order bonuses, which are usually very trivial anyway, and the problem of having to miss out on stuff automatically goes away for everyone in the long run. If a product isn't literally a limited edition or made from something that is actually scarce, there is absolutely no reason to give a company money without getting anything in return.

That's why I feel like it's kinda pointless if you're gonna buy it day one, then why not?

Most games I pre-order have no real bonus, I just use it as a checklist of what is coming out and do I have stuff to trade in to knock down the cost?

If you don't want to, then don't.

Also as an aside, "isn't literally a limited edition or made from something that is actually scarce", tell that to the people who couldn't find Bravely Default in a store for like 3 weeks because we live in a small town and most stores got like 3-4 extra copies onfthe game that weren't preordered. It does happen, depending on where you live.

SO i broke down and watched a fan sub of Kill La Kill ep 22, and guys it was glorious. That last shot was amazing...i was squealing in delight like a little school girl. This show just keeps delivering on hype. Spoilers below

Are you guys ready

Because its happening

Also Samurai Flamenco gets strange again but i like the Goto-san stuff. You know what this show needs? some more twists

It gave me "the feels." Every moment after the fight with Nui was either heartwarming or pumping you up for the final showdown.

Also, seeing Satsuki acting like a big sister is great but at the same time, it makes me a little bit worried. Kamina anyone?

HELL YEAH!!

That Dual Transformation was probably my favorite moment in the series so far, the music kicks in and I just got gossebumps

And yeah for the longest I felt Matoi would be the one to die and Satsuki would be the one to take over, but that moment before they changed, I feel like Satsuki is on the death block,

I haven't done a ton of pre-irder on digital, but technically the game cant be sold until midnight, I'd assume you'd just go to the store and do your pickup like any old pre-order and you'd just get a code that you'd have to redeem instead of the actual game.

This is completely contradictory of what I was told when I made the original preorder. :(

Unfortunately I know some people who will... say things... to drive pre-orders, but yeah you wont get the code until tonight. Sorry duder.

Edit: You typically can do a pre-load if you pre-order it via the service it's offered from, liek Steam of Origin.
