Open thread. Anything goes. Just don't call it Kotaku Off Topic. Or do. You make the rules—well, some of them—in this post that's not about video games, but might be briefly about game shows.
Speaking of gaming, I was in Las Vegas this weekend for this year's EVO fighting game tournament. Despite working some crazy hours, rarely have I had so much fun in the city. And it was 100-plus degrees every day and night, surprisingly not much of a damper on the festivities. The most surprising outcome of the weekend-long event was how interested I became in playing more fighting games and investing in a better fight stick. Gotta get on that and find some time to improve.

- Consumer Reports "can't recommend the iPhone 4" - Unless you'd like to put some duct tape on it.
- Edward Norton won't be Bruce Banner in The Avengers movie - Gee, I wonder why! Norton's agent isn't happy, but Ed seems to be taking it gracefully.
