No Jimmy Kimmel Live, I Will Not Preorder The Fallen King At GameStop

Despite your deliberately ham-fisted GameStop commercial starring the ever-charming Guillermo, I will not preorder The Fallen King, because preordering is bad. And also I already preordered it on PSN.

It’s not my fault! I mean, it is my fault, but there was a good reason. I’d lost my Destiny disk, and the only way to purchase the core game online these days is in a bundle with The Taken King, so I went ahead and did that. Now I’ve got it digitally, and I can never misplace it again.

It certainly had nothing to do with this commercial, which aired on Friday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live (via Gamespot).

While I might not be a big fan of the message and Kimmel’s recent fun-poking at YouTubers, I have to say I love it when a variety/talk show goes all old school and integrates commercials into their programming. It reminds me of the old radio shows.

“We have to make it to the car before the monster gets us! Good thing we recently replaced the tires with Goodyear all-weather radials!”

If you’ve gotta have sponsors, you might as well make the most of it. That’s why I always shave with Bic razors.


  • QUICK!
    Go and preorder something you haven’t sampled/played and almost certainly is the same recycled garbage Bungie used in the base game.

  • I hate the modern integration of commercials into our day to day lives. It’s hard to tell what is real or not as I kick back enjoying a glass of Crown Royal Canadian Whiskey. Ahhhhhh that sweet, sweet taste of Crown Royal.

    • Sweet Jesus, the Kotaku comments ad bots are reading my search history!

      In all seriousness I googled crown royal whisky a lot last night and then immediately see this joke the next morning.


    • Whiskey is good and all, but can you drive a whiskey bottle? Of course not, don’t be stupid, you’re stupid. But you can drive the Canyonero! And let me tell you, talk about roomy. The Canyonero combines the smooth handling of a European sports car with the rugged drivability of a sturdy 4×4.

  • I don’t get it. How hard is it to get the name of the game right, that as we have just seen, is being advertised to kingdom come and back.

    • Over the last few weeks there’s been a number of incorrect game titles. Looks like their quality control is poorly managed.
