  1. Spent three hours moving my camp to Top of the World, complete with awesome positioning, and poof. Gone. Getting really sick of your shit, game.
  2. If you're an MMO fan, Final Fantasy XIV. Star Trek Online and DC Universe Online are F2P as well. I'd also grab WWE 2K19 when it goes cheap.
  3. "Sir, I'm going to have to ask you to exit the Power Armor. And the head." Getting the Tricentennial Edition was totally worth it.
  4. I am cheesing my way through the Halloween Havoc tower with a combination of low blows and countouts in first blood matches.
  5. It did, but he's a Hart, so it only improved things.
  6. That is some insanely pinpoint accuracy on the part of Eaton. And a great sell by Zenk. Assuming Bobby didn't just cave his forehead in.
  7. As someone that hasn't watched any of the MYC or Stardom (ended my Network sub months ago) how do you pronounce Io? Eee-oh? Eye-oh? Eee-eye-eee-eye-oh?
  8. I'm definitely not saying it's not a disappointment; I'm just saying I understand the process of how it can happen. Hyperfocus is good for what you're interested in, and bad for everything else.
  9. I've already seen people on Reddit slamming Bryan for not being aware of Saudi. People do not understand how opaque the wrestling bubble can be when you're actually inside it. I fell prey to it for a long time before my wife pulled me out of it kicking and screaming, and I don't ever want to go back inside. It's like the Nexus from Star Trek: Generations (and not like the Nexus that Cena ruined)
  10. Ha! It kinda bookended my career. One of the first matches I refereed had Skag in it, and the last match I ever wrestled had me teaming with him. Fun fact: when my wife-to-be and I worked together in 2007, I showed a pic of me working with him in ECCW. Her reaction: “That’s Todd!” My reaction: “....how do you know that?” Turns out her best friend’s husband was friends with him, and they knew each other. Small world.
  11. And since it's wrestling-related and there's no thread, here's my costume for the last night's "Nightmare Before Halloween" costume day: Told you you couldn't see me. Sadly, I lost my towel early on, but immediately after, I won $10 on Let It Ride next to Jay Lethal and $90 on blackjack next to Jim Ross, Raven and Shane Helms. A noble sacrifice.
  12. I can see about assembling something later but I didn't watch all of the wrestling and only a few of the events. The wrestling was fun, if not a bit comedy-oriented. On the first night they played it a bit too serious which lost the crowd, but went more comedy after that, culminating in the Impact vs. Mushroom Kingdom match on the last night. I didn't get to see the Bucks of Jericho six-man but did see the matching gear, which was choice. Jericho apparently took the fall.
  13. My 40th is in March. Lemme tell you, after 35, I started feeling every one of the bumps I've taken. I'm now aging in dog years.
  14. I don't think Jericho was anywhere close to sober the entire trip, but he did a great job. The Fozzy concerts were sick, especially the first one as we were sailing away (maaaan). The spoken word stuff was stuff out of his books but still delivered well. Only blemish was the Ross/Lawler live podcast because of how bitter JR was and how much Lawler was obviously bullshitting (still claiming Savage walked out on WWE before a Raw and he took over because he was there at the time; claiming Memphis wrestling was responsible for pretty much everything, etc). In short, the trip was a blast and if they do another, I'd recommend it. The fears about unkempt, unruly and idiotic fans were not realized in the slightest - everyone was super cool.
  15. Some fans on the Jericho Cruise brought a "Get Well Roman" banner which was signed by pretty much *everyone* on the boat, fans and talent alike, and displayed on the last night. Cody made reference to it and to Reigns during the post-show promo and everyone wished him well. "He'll be back Superman punching everyone before you know it.'
  16. I could've sworn there was a Jericho Cruise thread, but I can't find it. Anyway, it was awesome. Jim Cornette would probably commit seppuku if he saw that the final match on the show was Impact Wrestling vs. the Mushroom Kingdom, but it was hilarious and fun and ended with Sami Callahan losing to everyone, including his own partners. That's good booking.
  17. There's also apparently a Universe bug, possibly involving the first Universe save slot, where you can't cash MITB in midmatch or postmatch. Not that that's going to stop me (or my wife's character)
  18. Good job, Universe mode, for having a Royal Rumble PPV.... with no Royal Rumbles.
  19. Reading the Kotaku review of it, and apparently the controls are really bad which is very surprising. I think I might give this a skip for a bit and play Assassin's Creed: Odyssey instead.
