    Yes Frank, It’s a debacle lol!

    Microsoft buying Bethesda is a direct response to last week’s Eddie rant.

    Anyone checking out the Mafia remake? I’ve been enjoying the current gen shine blended with the fabulous story-telling of the original. Makes me want to watch the Godfather trilogy again.

    I live in California. On Amazon, Series X became available at 8am. I was able to grab one at 9:05am.
    I had to be there within minutes of opening preorders to grab a PS5

    To be fair, there was a 45 minute to a hour long delay of pre-orders going live on a lot of websites (including Amazon, where I got mine). Regardless, the pre-order culture is manufactured to sell out fast and crash websites to generate HYPE. I was asleep when PS5 pre-orders went live, still sore at Walmart for that.

    Plan B: Line up at a Target stupid early in the morning and hope to get one on launch day. WHAT. A. DEBACLE.

    Oh is that what happened? Yea cause everyone I talked to is like ‘how the fffff did you get one an hour later?’ Got lucky then.
