Hello, Kotaku readers. Time for another open thread, where you can chat about video games, vent about Netflix's new rate hike, espouse your distaste for budget deficit talks or any other thing that crosses your mind.

I'm still on the fence about this new Netflix rate and plan change, as I'm one of those dinosaurs who still receives physical movies in the mail. What? I like Blu-rays and selection! Gimme a break. But I don't think I want to pay more than twenty bucks a month for the service, so I'm mulling things over. What about you?

If you don't give a toss about Netflix, maybe one of these other things will interest you.
