It strikes me that Brandon seems as if he's spent his entire life thus far trying to find a supportive peer group. The fact that he thought he might find such a group in a game that's cut-throat by nature is very sad.
"This game's not made for me, bro." No kidding. Though really it's the other way around--he wasn't made for the game, and perhaps he should have realized that it wasn't going to change for him.
The preview had Albert saying that there's no more RI and it's out the door I go. Is that supposed to imply that Brandon somehow beats Ozzy on the last RI? Or that he's suddenly viewed as someone who needs to go prior to Ozzy? Or is it just a giant red herring?
