  1. Hades is damned good. ... Miyamoto thought the original SMG was too dark, so he wanted to do a lighter-and-fluffier sequel, or so goes the story. SMG is gorgeous. Game is alright, too, but some of those stars are hard in a frustrating, "this was designed like shit" way. Not enough hard-but-fair-and-fun stars like Luigi's Purple Coins (which is amazing, best star in the game).
  2. King Kong Bundy's guest spot as part of Peg's backwoods Wisconsin family is among the best wrestler-acting that we've ever been graced with in our lives, IMO.
  3. It is only accessible once you complete the main quest on Monarch, IIRC.
  4. The DLC, Peril on Gorgon, is also excellent and worth playing if you haven't already.
  5. Super Mario 64 is still a good game, but it's probably the Mario where I have to get used to the controls (and camera) the longest more than any other game after I go a long time without playing it.
  6. And they KEPT turning him heel. No one asked for or wanted a "Bret joins the nWo and then swerves everyone into thinking he's left them and turned face, only to stay with the nWo" angle. You've got a white-hot, sympathetic babyface and you put him up against Ric Flair, maybe the one guy other than Sting who the WCW fans will side with over him, and then turn him heel and keep him that way even though the crowd wants to root for him. Someone mentioned Luger coming back to WCW, and that Hogan/Savage/Sting/Luger uneasy alliances angle was great. I don't agree that Bischoff only ev
  7. Bret also basically went right into a feud with Ric Flair, a guy whose style he didn't like and who he wouldn't be at all motivated to put up an effort against.
  8. I got an invite as well. I already have a pre-order in (and the seller already charged me), so IDK if I'm going to use this one.
  9. They also didn't announce that pre-orders would open until AFTER the presentation, on Twitter. And then they said that pre-orders would open tomorrow, and they opened today. Occam's Razor is that they were blindsided by the Xbox price leak and sort of threw this together.
  10. I got my PS5 pre-ordered along with Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Whew. This is my first time online-ordering at launch and I hated it and hope physical stores never go away.
  11. Eivion's response is exactly why I don't like Edge/Taker. Edge in control with his couldn't-squash-a-grape offense is fucking awful viewing. Edge has got to be one of the worst ME workers the WWE's ever had, at least IMO. Just unwatchable unless he was diving off of something.
  12. Oh, for me, Michaelangelo was a long-reigning wrestling champ and hit .405 in the action figure baseball league. He was a true dual-sport superstar. Take that, "Spark Plug" Bob Holly!
  13. McMahon's shitty edgelord topical references to Neverland Ranch and Bill Clinton that were total misses at humor were far more detracting to the experience than Polo wrestling that Jannetty match in a way other than a scared, unathletic manager. Holy shit, 1994-1995 might be the nadir of pre-Michael Cole WWF announcing.
  14. Because Jake is the master of the hold. He put hours and hours of practice into dropping a sometimes-struggling opponent at the right spot on their head to knock them out. A lesser wrestler, or a wrestler who hasn't practiced the intricacies of the move properly, will have a less-effective DDT. It's like asking why everyone doesn't shoulder roll like Floyd Mayweather Jr. if that's so effective at defending oneself from punches. Well, few people are as talented or practiced at that skill as Mayweather Jr. is.
  15. That new Ratchet and Clank with the near-immediate loading from one area/dimension into another has been the coolest thing so far that probably does need the next-gen tech, IMO. Honestly, I get consoles at launch now because I can do it financially, for which I am thankful, and it's fun to get the new tech. It's a small joy in life, and you gotta find them where you can. I totally get why someone would stick with their current-gen console for awhile longer, though.
