I wish RPS had a sexy throne.

RPS’ War In Hell is over. The ruler has been decided. But the real ruler of hell remains – and he’s Vic Davis.

The Complete Gameboys From Hell

Since Bargain Bucket isn’t around yet, here’s a deal to consider. In the comments thread to the final part of Gameboys From Hell, Vic popped in to say that the talked-about multi-pack deal is probably not going to happen. However…

I do love RPS though and I was able to figure out how to create a discount code for $5 US off the price so it will be $24.99 US.

It’s only valid for a week so that I can push the fence sitters off their perches. :)

You can throw down cash over here. With any luck, we’ll be doing an interview with Vic next week.
