    Charlotte's Mole, the York Foundation's laptop, and Rocco for CHIKARA trios team.

    Jericho is the carniest of carnies, so I'm not sure that I take him at his word on that, honestly.

    Well, the "God" is really just for flavor; "Emperor" is the actual descriptor of the position. However, I will snap my fingers and have my secret police kidnap Yuji Naka and force him to put together a team to remake Burning Rangers, so that's pretty much good enough for me. ... This seems like a quiet time for games, at least for me, so other than playing lots of Outrun, which was just released to arcade perfection on Switch, I'm probably going to finally finish Kiwami for good and pick up Kiwami 2 so that I can be ready for Kiwami 3, which I'm sure is out in a few months without even looking at the schedule. I miss Kamurocho; it's got to be one of my favorite video game cities, and maybe my favorite straight up.

    I'm not opposed to this position. You've got my endorsement if I drop out of the primary. I'll stump for you if you also force Capcom to make a Capcom All-Stars 3v3 fighter with Edward Falcon as a member of the playable roster. I still have my Dreamcast keyboard specifically so that I can bust this out and play it every once in awhile! It is legitimately awesome, you're not wrong about that. I admit that for home light gun games made by SEGA, I prefer both Virtua Cop and Confidential Mission, though.

    It's also online and was a nice little five-minute sprint where Bobby Eaton sold a beating and then fired up like an all-star, white-meat babyface before eating a clothesline and getting pinned. In other words, it was perfectly enjoyable!

    I know it's my dislike of most JRPGs speaking here, but Phantasy Star and Shining Force are a no from me, dawg. I like quite a few SRPGs, too, and I don't hate Shining Force, but the aesthetics put me off. Everything outside of the actual tactical battles puts me off. Also, I like light gun games, but HotD...uh, nah. I could entertain there being nine better SEGA franchises than Sonic, but those three aren't among them. If you had gone with World Series Baseball, Ristar (even though there's only one of them because that's how fucking GREAT Ristar is), and NiGHTS (even though Journey of Dreams exists), we could talk. (I would also entertain "Virtual On," "Thunder Force," or even "Zaxxon" as possibilities even though I wouldn't ultimately agree myself with any of them.) When I run for God Emperor of the Universe, it will be on a "No Saturn games get remade until Burning Rangers does" platform. Not even Fighters Megamix. That's how serious I am about this.

    I'm in the minority, I know, but I think 3D World is a bad game. It's clearly geared for multiplayer, which makes the levels feel sort of empty and without a clear direction or structure in SP until the post-game. It's got all this space, but it doesn't do interesting stuff with it like the Mario games where non-linear platforming is the focus (64, Odyssey). Nah, gonna have to deny this. Sonic does what it does extremely well. If people don't like the different jump physics or the "speeding around loops as a reward for nailing a platforming section" design of the levels, that is what it is, but it clearly is a great series pre-Dreamcast, and the 2D stuff in daytime Unleashed stages, Colors, and Generations is exceptionally good.

    Honestly, considering the fact that he did wrestle in NWA/WCW and therefore isn't strictly an overseas guy, my other answer besides Magnum would be The Great Muta. Of course, my opinion could be clouded by the fact that when I was seven, I thought that he and Randy Savage were the craziest and baddest dudes walking the earth. EDIT: Oh, and Bad News Brown. If you wanted me to pick three wrestlers that I thought would actually win a real-life street fight, I would have said those three without hesitation.

    I didn't know that Cornette was shooting live shows. There was (is?) a fancam of it up on YouTube a few years back, but it wasn't great. Corny's fancam would be interesting to watch, though. Thanks!

    Excluding Lucha/Puro, it's Magnum TA, maybe? This question was easier to answer before Sting finally went over.

    Is there anywhere online that has a full, non-clipped, non-fancammed version of the Midnight Express vs. Tully and Arn NWA Tag Title match in Philadelphia where Tully and Arn dropped the belts before going to WWF in the late '80s? For that matter, I've never seen the Road Warriors/Midnights match shortly after where the Roadies killed the Midnights almost dead for the titles, so I should go look for that. I'm guessing that it made full tape.

    Playing New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and uh, well, maybe Nintendo should stop making these 2D games in the "New" series and do anything else with 2D Mario. There are lots of hidden items and secret exits, and as someone who really values exploration in his platformers, I should be so into that. The jump physics and feel of the characters, especially when trying to break into a run, are so bad that they cancel out my feelings about the level design entirely. Also, this game is fucking ugly. Tiny Luigi looks like he was drawn by me, which is a real problem since my lack of spatial ability means that anything I draw looks like a desiccated hand. Put this up against other games of its budget and type, for example like Rayman Legends, and the motherfucker ain't even close. Nintendo had been low-key making bad Mario games for awhile between the release of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Odyssey. Those Galaxy games were the prettiest games that I've ever played and they were creative, but the actual gameplay and course design fell entirely flat most of the time, and those are the best games of a sub-average bunch. These New Super Mario Bros. games are an entirely new level of shitty. Hot take incoming: Sonic has had the same amount of good core (platformer) games than Mario has between 1996 and now (Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations, and Sonic Mania vs. Super Mario 64, Super Mario Maker, and Super Mario Odyssey).

    I feel like this isn't sarcasm because you are genuinely overjoyed to have had the chance to watch two episodes of The Good Place, in which case I share in your joy.

    I think that it's a testament to Nintendo's development ability pre-GameCube that their N64 in-house games (like from the Japanese divisions such as EAD, not from Rare) aged extremely well even with technological limitations like the lack of dual analog. Super Mario 64 has no right to be as excellent as it is in 2019 even with the camera on the C-Buttons. I could list a number of N64 games that I think are still fantastic. Honestly, I could do that for PS1, too. something like Jumping Flash is still good as hell, for example. The Saturn, of course, has the best-aged games of that generation since so many of them were 2D masterpieces.

    Ah, the result of only having low bars to clear.
