  1. I got a "Ding!" trophy for nutshotting Rusev as Nakamura, so I'm in love with the game already.  I'm not sure if it's as good on the vanilla PS4 but this game looks great on the PS4 Pro.

    I just wish the menus weren't bright white.  It makes the light blue cursor in create mode REALLY hard to see.

    Plus - Court Bauer tweeted when MLW announced they got the trademark that they wouldn't prevent WWE from using just that they did it so they could use it.

    Something is telling me WWE could fight this under prior art (ha!) but I am not a lawyer, nor do I pretend to be one on TV, the Internet or the Award-Winning WWE Network®

    There's no tool that ports over PC to PS4 or vice versa.  Since the edit tool is the same I guess they're able to just do a side-by-side look and get the edits ports over.  What's wrong about it is that Spike initially said they were trying to find a way to make the connection between both systems happen but nothing came of it.

    I'm not really surprised they weren't able to; Sony seems very against the idea of cross-platform connectivity of any kind unless they're basically strong-armed into it, and Spike Chunsoft isn't nearly big enough of a company, nor Fire Pro nearly big enough of a license, to force their hand.  Considering multiplayer is also involved, they probably don't want to deal with the possibility of hacking from an open PC platform infecting the closed PS4 platform either.  It's a can of worms they're better off not opening.

  4. Am I misreading or is there something wrong with porting the CAWs from PC?  Did PS4 change something up?  Or is it just a comment on how they're able to get CAWs up so fast?

    I'd love to work on making some but between work, home life and other games (Overwatch, FFXIV, Spider-Man, and WWE 2K19 starting tonight) I just don't have the time to do it.  Although I *am* considering trying to make Titan from FFXIV as a giant worldbeater.

    Per Meltzer (and unsurprisingly really) - the WWE is trademarking all the old names from WCW, WCCW, etc... not really to use them but to keep other people from doing so since they are pissed that MLW trademarked War Games

    Several years ago, I was *this close* to getting DOA to use Halloween Havoc as a name since the trademark lapsed on it, but nothing doing - they stuck with their older Halloween Horrors name.

    (October has a lot of alliterative names and they're all the same.  How many promotions have shows called Halloween Hell?)

  6. It's not much, and I'm still pretty bad at Overwatch, but I'm proud of this highlight.  Had a teammate not gotten an amazing kill streak as Junkrat, I might've even gotten Play of the Game.

    So far I'm enjoying D.Va and Mercy and will probably stick with them until I figure maps and such out more.  I'm having fun.

  7. Good is graded on a steep curve with WWE games, anyway.  I've found ways to have fun with them each year, so I'm entertained.  I preordered the Digital Deluxe version last night - I figure I'm going to be getting the Season Pass and DLC anyway, so I may as well just rip the bandage off now.

  8. Becky, Sasha, Bayley, Charlotte.

    To this day, I do not see why people consider Charlotte a good worker.  I'm not sure if it's the body type making her look this way, but she has always appeared awkward to me in the ring and not a natural worker.  Her facial expressions are terrible - she doesn't emote well at all and cannot draw me into a match with her ringwork.  And I'm *still* saltier than caviar over her ending Asuka's streak at WrestleMania, which she still hasn't recovered from and probably never will.

    You can argue her position vis a vis Sasha or Bayley at this point, but Becky is so far ahead of her in every way it's not even funny.

  9. I'm thinking there's no way there aren't more Adventures of Botch Man in 2K19, and I an fully on board.  I think a rebranding of the Botch Club is in order.  Botch Club Uprising?  Los Ingobernables de Botch?  Open to ideas here.  No idea is too silly.

    It's just regular masking tape, so it's not even that useful. You can tape up your wrists with it like some kind of idiot, I guess!

    Or like every rookie indy worker and trainee for the next X years.

    When I worked matches, I hated wrist tape, mostly because of my arm hair - using non-stick tape under it was just annoying, which is part of the reason I used the Undertaker Prime Time MMA gloves (that and I didn't want to risk stiffing people due to inexperience at throwing strikes)

    My Minoru Suzuki shirt arrived from the UK, holy shit 



    I just got this in the mail this week and it's fucking awesome.  Light shirt, too.

    Like I said on Twitter, I'm pretty sure I'm the first Turner employee in the company's history to wear a Minoru Suzuki shirt to the office.  Got positive comments on the design, as well.
