There’s always money…IN the banana stand…

I know, I spend a lot of time fellating Netflix. But you have to admit, this is pretty rad. Makes me anxious for May.

ntflxadI’m still totally devastated to learn there won’t be more than one new season, but one is better than none.

Psycho Time Killer: New Borderlands 2 Playable Character AND a Raised Level Cap

Here’s how this is going to go. You have your character tease:

and then boom! you have four minutes of axe swinging, dynamite throwing, psycho exploding new-playable-character-class action:

Wait, the level cap was raised?  Yes, yes it was. Now you can level your bevy of Vault Hunters from their current 50 up to a breath taking and most likely trophy inducing 61.  A new game mode and the return of incredibly rare pearlescent weapons as well? Man, Gearbox is just killing it these days, what with all the free DLC extending the life of their…wait, what? Not free?  How much? Five bucks? FIVE BUCKS? Awww man.

Unsure How To Feel: Georges St. Pierre to Play Batroc the Leaper in Captain America Sequel?

Via  MiddleEasy and SuperHero Hype comes today’s hot rumor: UFC Middleweight champion/ultimate wrestlefucker is set to play Georges Batroc a.k.a Batroc the Leaper in the upcoming Captain America sequel, The Winter Soldier. How many grains of salt do you have?

So just who is this purple suited jumping guy? Well, according to Wikipedia and my own brain, Batroc the Leaper is a master of the French martial art savate, the sole (ed note: haha) purpose is to teach you AMERICAN SWINE some respect. Or just making with the face kicking, I don’t know.  There’s the link, you go look. Also:

Batroc has no superhuman abilities, but is in peak physical condition in every respect. He is an Olympic-level weightlifter and has extraordinary agility and reflexes. His leg muscles are particularly well developed enabling him to leap great distances with the equity of an Olympic athlete. He is an expert hand-to-hand combatant and specializes in savate (French-style kickboxing). He is also a skilled military tactician, having formerly been in the French Foreign Legion.

Batroc is also an experienced thief and smuggler, and can speak both French and English. Although, as a mercenary, he does not hesitate to perform any number of criminal acts for his clients, Batroc has, by his own rights, a strong sense of honor, and he will turn against any client whom he feels has unfairly deceived him into committing crimes to which he might not otherwise have agreed.

Hell, you can watch the Human Weapon episode about savate right now:

“Look out Cap! He’s using the jab to set up the takedown! Ahh, dammit. Well, he took you down.  No worries though! He’ll just lay on top of you until I ring this buzzer.  Once he let’s you up, just smash him with your shield a half dozen times & we’ll call it a day.”  – every onlooker ever when GSBatroc shows up.
