Pre-order Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris to get $2 off and a $5 Amazon credit. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was one of the better co-op games of the last generation, and the new game bumps the player count from two to four, which hopefully means more complex puzzles, rather than an increased focus on action.

So I went ahead and ordered Attack on Titan, because I know my wife will want to watch it when she gets home from deployment—and at 50% off list, it's hard to pass that up.

What confuses me is why everyone keeps saying it's so brilliant. I'll admit to having seen only five episodes thus far (I've been watching it on Toonami), but here's what I've taken away from what I've seen:

-Jaeger: A pretty clear reference to "Jager," which means "hunter" in German; given the clear Western-European influences on the world building, it's hard to take seriously a narrative that purports itself to be dark and full of drama when the lead character—who hunts Titans—is literally named "hunter."

No, seriously—that's like naming a sword-wielding warrior "Stabsstuffgood."

Add to that the character himself has completely unreasonable emotional reactions to literally everything (and I understand PTSD quite well; my wife suffers from it after a previous deployment—it didn't turn her into a screaming, rage-filled jackwagon every time someone asked her a question or mentioned the war, though), and I have a hard time getting behind him as a character at all.

-Character interactions: There's a scene early in the series—I want to say it was Episode 3—wherein one of the cadets takes a liking to Jaeger's female friend (I want to say she was adopted by Jaeger's parents, but that's never made clear). She doesn't rebuff him, but she does walk away with Jaeger as soon as he shows up, and this other cadet says, "Don't worry—you've lost nothing but my trust."

Um, wut? If someone turns you down for a date—especially if they already have someone—they're not breaking your trust so much as they're exercising their right to not date you. The line made no sense whatsoever.

There are some fun things going on in the narrative; Potato Girl is a standout, for one—but she's also pretty clearly meant to be comic relief.

I just can't understand where the cries of, "brilliant," keep coming from. It's violent, it's gory, and pretty much everyone's guaranteed to die at some point or another—but apart from Jaeger's explosive anger issues and a lot of screaming, I haven't seen anything to differentiate it from any other, "My parent(s) were murdered horribly right before my eyes, and now I want REVENGE," storyline out there.

Someone, please, tell me it gets better.
