Wednesday Other Stuff (5-30-12)
Posted on May 30, 2012 at 08:30 AM.
Was hoping for an epic comeback by the Thunder last night, but they fell short. It will be hard to beat a Spurs team 4 out of the next 5 games, but I'll keep pulling for the underdog.
The announcement of the
Sprite Slam Dunk Contest, 3 Point Contest, Rising Stars Challenge
is sparking a lot of my interest this morning.
How do you feel about pre-order DLC or bonuses? Seems it's the new "thing"...
If any of these links interest you, talk about them!
(If you find any,
send me a PM
. I'll post them in the next update and mention you.)

I love the elevator video. That's demonstrating a concept called "social proof" which is a very powerful psychological tactic. Basically it means that people will judge their circumstances based on the actions of those around them. Is the man on the sidewalk dead or just a homeless man? You keep walking by because everyone else does. Would you jump off a bridge if everyone else did? If the others landed safely, mostly likely you might.
Keeping my fingers crossed for the Cavs in the lottery tonight. Just hoping they don't fall out of the Top 3.
QoTD: Hate it. Just an excuse for companies to make more money.
The elevator thing most definitely would be worse. Especially in these days and times. That would definitely be something I'd like to watch on a weekly basis. The Rope Swing is clearly not my type of tea. Great links.
QOTD: I honestly don't like it one bit because a lot of that stuff could be added. I don't mind it be all added in a GOTY edition though which is what I've been holding out for more often. "Complete" games with all of the DLC and added bonuses. I'm kind of sick of the term and practice "pre-order" honestly. I sure loved when I could walk into a store and pick what I wanted. If it was out, I could go to another store or just wait until they restock. Definitely won't die if I don't get it that day.......
QOTD: If it adds more depth to the game (in regards to the 2K announcement) then i'm all for it, as long as it can be extended to all game modes. It CANNOT be a separate mode! CAN...... NOT!
MUST WATCH!!!!!!!!!!! dat goal celebration video had me peeing my pants!LOL
Ok, this Steve Urkel NBA style that has reared its ugly head lately needs to go away. Seriously Russel? That picture has done damage to my cornias. What happened to wearing a pimpy suit? Why are you wearing glasses without lenses? What planet am I on? Talk to your boy D Rose!
