I don't think so, because no one is being forced to pre order now, it feels more like a way to gauge just how much hype/ initial interest there is in the game for marketing charts for business suits to be proud of/ cry and fire people over. If they were saying "pre order now for x bonuses that will expire in 48 hours", that'd be a bit off, but anyone who pre orders the game now is probably a mega fan who knows they will get this game no matter what, and even if they aren't, there will be plenty of opportunity to check out gameplay before now and release and you can always cancel your pre order :)
On the game: bring it on! HR was one of those rare games that I accidentally spent an entire day lost in and then kept going. I can't wait for this!
I wanna read a fanfic written by this guy, starring Dan.
Don't turn this into something weird.
Dude, it's already a little weird. I'm glad you got that off your chest though, do you feel better about it now? I never watched any of the GI content, but I really love the chemistry between Dan and Drew in MGS and Dan is consistently the best part of quick looks, UPF and the bombcast for me. I'm sorry you feel like you've lost out on this thing, but I know for a fact there is something out there that is just as awesome and you just need to find it.
God dammit Paddy, you are the fucking bomb. Gonna miss you on the site and I can't wait to see what you do next, despite what feels like a shitty vocal minority, you will always be a platinum fucking duder on this site to me and I am sure countless others.
Can't wait for that next Evil Bong trilogy, I don't even know what Evil Bong is.
I liked it, I want to see more, but I agree with the above. In the sense of this story, Brad should have been Jeff, and maybe get the guys to have different looks so that it is more obviously a certain member of the bomb squad.
Perhaps they'll find a way to conveniently ignore Jurassic Park III.
And The Lost World now that you mention it. TLW is not a good movie.
I watched it recently. The film is fine, it's got some great one liners like "How many Sarahs do you think are on this island?" and the stuff with the cheeseburgers (no onions on mine!) Sure it feels silly with moments like the TRex smashing through the immigration sign and the parents complaining about the fish tank, but it's still cool to watch those dinos, which still look really good, living and breathing in the world. Even at 22, I got a little lost in the wonder of the world Spielberg created and forgot that Dinosaurs are actually extinct.
However, feel free to discredit my opinion entirely, because I also really like Jurassic Park 3 and I am looking forward to the next one.
Is it telling that I thought this was shaky cam Destiny footage up until the energy sword? I guess for all the criticisms that Destiny has against it, feeling bad to play isn't one of them. People need to not freak out at this (and there will be people who will do the whole "HALO IS DEAD BECAUSE THEY DID ADS" thing because this is the internet), I don't think it'll be nearly as much as a game changer as people think. If anything, it'll make Halo more attractive to another generation who are used to ADS for precision shooting.
And how much do you wanna bet there is a control option that allows you to stick the ADS on a controller stick click so you can get through the whole game without actually using it.
