  1. Odds are high they'll be Tongans who tell people they're Samoan.
  2. Has anyone owned one of the Nintendo 64 Funtastic series consoles? Those were the consoles that came in various translucent colors - jungle green, grape purple, etc. I'm assuming that, since the shells are basically clear plastic, they more or less glow in the dark when turned on and look rather cool in low lighting? True? I've been looking for an hour to try to find a video of one plugged in and still no luck. They series really doesn't appeal to me. but I have a feeling I'd like them much more if I saw one plugged in. Any thoughts? Wandering if I should snap one or two from eBay.
  3. I have no idea where the 2019 NWA would even manage to find 24 tag teams.
  4. I hate to sound like I have a stick up my butt.... but.... Dave is arguably the most influential wrestling journalist around. Would it kill him to dress like a professional? I'm struggling to think of a sports journalist covering any legit sport who would go to a live event looking like that, And I've sat in the bleachers with some shifty looking baseball beat writers who dressed like they raided Capt. Lou Albano's closet (granted, they were also mostly functional alcoholics so professional dress was low on their list of priorities).
  5. So...uh.... I've never read Kingdom Come. I need to stop by the lcs and grab a copy on the way home, don't I?
  6. I haven't watched it yet, but I flipped by a few times last night and the giant rubber squid on the girl's back looked supremely cheesy. Honestly, having watched the whole season except for the NYD episode, Whittaker's performance works for me. Almost nothing else does. Really didn't dig the writing except a few eps in the middle, the new companions, the vibe of the show, the new enemies, etc. Honestly, kinda preferred the Capaldi run by fair margin and I wasn't terribly into those episodes when the y aired.
  7. I like Tomlin a lot, but I feel like it might be time for him to go elsewhere. He's been there 12 years now and the Steelers feel like they're underachieving the past few years. Right now, Tomlin doesn't seem to be doing a great job keeping the egos in check and getting them disciplined. With Ben winding up his career soon (and the recent whispers about no body missing him in the locker room ), maybe it's time to make a fresh start.
  8. The good news is that the move to the Pursuit Network hopefully means the return of Bigfoot.
  9. Lewis recommended Hue Jackson as his replacement, so apparently the parting wasn't as amicable as the team portrayed it. C'mon, Marvin, an NFL team employed you as head coach for 16 years straight without a playoff win. The odds of that happening are slightly lower than the odds I'll see a unicorn this week. Why do you hate the Bengals so to wish Hue Jackson on them?
  10. Christmas NiGHTS Into Dreams on the Saturn. Really enjoying it. The amount of bonus material and Easter eggs packed into what is basically a demo is astounding. Eh, I've got a bucket list of games I'm planning to spend $100-$1000 on sometime this year, but I think the things I'm looking forward to the most are: getting boxes and original manuals for the rest of my retro systems, collecting most of the hardware peripherals for the 32-bit gen consoles (Saturn, N64, PS1 mostly), and getting those same 32 bit systems hooked up to a CRT telly and doing whatever else I need o do to
  11. So... I discovered Black Science yesterday. Read the first two trades, liked them a lot. I'm in for the duration. Already bought trades 3 and 4. Going back to the LCS tomorrow or Wed for trades 5-8. How's Deadly Class? The tv series looks interesting, judging from the trailers. Kinda assumed it was based on some graphic novel or comic series, but I didn't know till yesterday it was a Remender book.
  12. That was Starrcade '97, and not for title so far as I remember. That was the "Battle of the Giants". The Outsiders "broke" the Giant's hand, so he supposedly couldn't use the chokeslam. Of course, that got blown off when Show did an interview and told fans he'd be bringing the chokeslam to Starrcade, so.... Anyway, the rumor was that Nash got chest pains from some wacky meal and claimed it was a heart attack to get out of the match. Eric Bischoff has said that the real story is that Nash got chest pains, went to the hospital, and underwent tests that showed he had suffered a heart at
  13. Y'all realize Vince thinks all environmentalists act like Bryan's heel character, right?
  14. He no-showed a AIW show in Cleveland in January 2017 then claimed he was prevented from boarding the plane because of President Trump's new travel policy (?) and the fact that he had an unpaid speeding ticket (??) and didn't have his passport (???).
  15. Lol, anyone else notice that they didn't capitalize on at least three of the ten? Balor Club got a huge reaction.... so, of course, they immediately dropped the idea. Bayley-Sasha built to nothing and took forever to get there. Matt Hardy's run seems like a missed opportunity. Some of the other stuff came to nothing, but was due to things outside the writers' control. Future Shield reunions seem like a bad idea, considering how star-crossed they've been so far.
  16. I still haven't actually seen the broken nose footage. But, yeah, Nia punched Becky in the nose a little too hard when she showed up on Raw.
  17. Rippa's a wrestling fan. He has a lot of experience telling content providers to go to hell on a weekly basis. Came across a strange gaming website while I was searching the net for reviews of Tenma de Jack, an obscure PS1 platformer loosely based on Jack and the Beanstalk (the goal of the game seems to be to climb a giant beanstalk). http://lunaticobscurity.blogspot.com/ Basically, it's a gamer's blog devoted to reviewing obscure games. Really, really, really obscure games. Like, I went through 60 entries in the PS1 section and knew a bit about maybe six games. And I've spe
  18. So is anyone else here really into console porn? Er.... i mean..... retro hardware. Yeah, that's what I meant. I'm increasingly more interested in collecting hardware. Truthfully, I'll never be hooked on playing video games. i play some, but I get more enjoyment out of collecting retro games than I do playing them. Playing is the least interesting side of the hobby for me. I'm fascinated by the process of game design and I enjoy researching and obscure and little-known games. And it turns out I'm really into the hardware. At the moment, I'm more willing to spend a lot on h
  19. Cyborg? I'd probably be a lot more interested if the team seemed to be staying closer to the original group. Shoehorning Cyborg and Crazy Jane in doesn't do a lot for me. I'm actually more bothered by Crazy Jane than Cyborg. Using the Morrison run as source material would probably result in a trainwreck. If they were going to add in Cyborg, throw in someone from the Kupperberg/Lightle run. Not much use for those IP's and they're mostly unknown/unexplored, so you can alter them for tv without drawing the ire of comic fans.
  20. Yeah, I was in a bit of a mood this morning. Work-related. Sorry. I probably should have just said I thought there were a lot of good newer games, but I still preferred old and left it at that. And, yeah, old games are definitely buggy. For some reason, that annoys me less than it does with newer games. In other news, the mailman brought me a Japanese PSone - boxed with original manual and inserts - and a white Japanese Sega Saturn - also boxed and with original manual and inserts. The white Japanese (it's really a very light gray/tan, I think) is one of the Christmas models th
  21. Yeah, no, there are plenty of good games being made these days. There may be more good games being made these days than were made back in the 90's. Certainly, games today will probably hold up better graphically. It's more that there were plenty of good games made in the mid-90's or before, and I don't have to deal with a bunch of issues that will sap my enthusiasm. Somewhere in the past 15 years, the industry shifted and I find some of the shifts off-putting. I don't really want to have to subscribe to an online service in order to be able to use my console fully. I don't like the
  23. I'm assuming it's mostly or entirely a work, but the Becky-Rhonda social media stuff seems a little too salty compared to the usual WWE social media "feuds" (which usually are obviously works). If there's no animosity between those two, they really have social media kayfabe down pat.
  24. Lol, that's basically my opinion of modern gaming as a whole. "Why the F*** would I put up with that when there's a few hundred PS1 and Saturn games I want to play?"
