Review Group Backup Pick Poll for 02-10

Postby ****** » Tue Feb 09, 2010 6:07 pm

Choker is our primary selection that everyone should be looking for, but it's sounding like Diamond fucked up when they put it on their shipping invoices this week.

Since we need to be able to review something, Kerny has agreed to let us select a backup pick via poll.

What should we read if we can't read Choker?

If your shop gets Choker, get Choker. This is just in case Choker didn't ship.

Voted for REBELS because I keep hearing how great it is.

I'll probably change my vote later when it's obvious that it has no chance of winning. :(
