It's mid-week, so it's time to get you guys warmed up for our Friday giveaway on Twitter. This time, we'll be giving away a bunch of codes for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, so if you've wanted to check it out or have the original SSFIV and want the AE DLC, then keep an eye on the official WP Twitter feed.

The new season of Hell's Kitchen started, so since we're foodies, we had to watch that. It's always good entertainment to see Gordon Ramsay go all donkey on his minions.

Mid-week also means that there are only three more days until Captain America (be quiet, Adam!!). This had better be good!
