I'm still getting a 403 Forbidden when trying to download via wget.

When clicking on the video via a browser, I get the following:

Based on your subscription level, this content is unavailable

For some reason, I'm having an issue downloading videos.

When I went to check to see how many requests I made (thinking I may have exceeded a monthly limit or something), I saw the following:

You have used 6471 requests in the last hour for API Path '/videos' ...a tad bit gluttonous don't you think? (reset in -0 minutes)

Your request rate is fine

As far as I'm aware, no video was posted to the site until about 7 hours ago (Abby's 100 Baby Challenge) which I didn't download. Is there a way I can see where my API key is being used or can I reset it in the event it may have been snagged (not sure why it would be, but okay...)?

Sometime today (not entirely sure when), I noticed that when querying the Videos endpoint, the url field was returning ‘https://‘ along with the filename.

Example:

curl -s -X GET 'https://www.giantbomb.com/api/videos/?api_key=<redacted>&format=json&limit=1' | jq -r '.results[] | .url'

I don't know. The way the article was written, it would seem that we should look at every vigilante the way we did in the Watchmen. Granted, some heroes don't kill and actively avoid doing so, but there is a chance of collateral damage and people do tend to die by the choices the character makes. I feel like the character is being blamed for something that the player has some control over. Yes, it makes it easier to do so, but there are other ways to go about it...

The game's story may not have been the best in the world, but you can't blame a man for sometimes being pushed to the edge, especially when it doesn't seem like he has any good social skills. He was taking his niece to the park when they attempted to kill him. He didn't know that was about to happen. His niece's death shouldn't be blamed on Aiden because the orders were given without his knowledge and the mob (gang) boss admitted that he didn't know that they (Aiden and Damien) weren't after the video and probably would have left him alone.
