    2019 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    If I'm in Disney legal, I'm going to start overlooking contracts for some kill clauses right about now. https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/01/16/star-wars-open-world-game-canceled-at-ea

    Raw Is Balor, Clubbed - 1/14/2019

    I thought the Alexa Bliss thing backstage bit was dumb. I've never understood WWE's invisible camera man gimmick and how/when that started. Even Iron Sheik knew there was a camera man in front of him. However, the bit clearly served its purpose for WWE. It did the job WWE wanted it to do. Not saying I approve, but this controversy and attention is exactly why they put it on TV.

    That promo after he beat Jay White was epic. Even his stumbling over the words worked. Juice clearly has something. Dude just cuts these great natural from the hip promos. "Anybody who says titles don't matter in this business can burn in hell."

    Your All Purpose Anime Thread

    Ok the new Baki the Grappler series was kind of insane. Though admittedly, I can kind of see the appeal for fans. It's like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone and JCVD fans. That said, the story was sort of disjointed and all over the place at times. The fights go on these weird, bizarre tangents. Like a Vince Russo match on steroids. The fight will basically take a left turn and get to a "how did we get to this point" type of moment. Now, there could be some sort of genre-subversion or borderline self-parody at work. Not all too familiar with Baki before this series other than briefly checking out an OVA once back in the day. I mean in Bobobo that stuff works because it's a comedy series and they do a good job of riffing on how utterly absurd battle and shonen type stories can get. Not sure if I will continue watching the second half. Just so much weirdness, even for an anime series.

    Marvel Cinematic Universe - 2019 and Beyond

    I hope that's the theme music they use in the movie. Thought it was trash that Giacchino relegated the classic 60s theme into the bleeding Marvel Studios logo.

    NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 13 in Tokyo Dome 1/4/19

    Let me be clear, I don't think Cody is an all-time great worker or anything, but I think he's a solid worker who knows his way around the ring. Even plenty of the all-time greats from the late 80s/early 90s weren't putting on 4-5 star classics on a regular basis, at least on TV. I've enjoyed plenty of Cody's post WWE matches. In recent years I'm less into the whole 5-star ranking thing. I just want to enjoy the match and believe what's going on. Rollins on the other hand, dunno. Just seems lacking since he turned face.

    Destiny 2

    I wonder if Activision calling Destiny 2 a disappointment was the straw that broke the camel's back here.

    I’d rather watch a Cody Rhodes match than a Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns match

    1. Why are you getting so angry defensive? 2. He was asked about a hypothetical wellness policy and he gave a rambling, speculative answer. He clearly has no idea if they will have one or not.

    He flat out said, "I don't expect a wellness policy." I didn't make that up. He also said, "I would say, probably not." He clearly has no idea if they will or not, but he's assuming they won't need one because most of the guys they signed don't even drink alcohol. That's speculating.

    That was the tone of his garbled statement.

    Destiny 2

    Is this going to significantly change anything about the game?

    Leery of any rumors that come from that website.

    I recall there was some debate about what Meltzer said about there being a wellness policy. He was just speculating and shooting from the hip when asked about the idea. It was basically like, "Most of those guys don't even drink. Why would they even need a wellness policy?" In other words, he doesn't know if they will actually have one or not and simply speculated as he does on most things.

    Cody vs. Juice was like two stars max IMHO. Also, Cody vs. Juice are capable of a much better match. They had a very good match that went about twice as long at Fighting Spirit Unleashed. Cody was working with a knee injury and clearly not 100 percent. He came in, did the clean job to Juice and made Juice look good and let him get the belt back and gave him a nice win at the Tokyo Dome. That was pretty much the point of the match. Cody was not in shape enough to have a clinic or mat classic. Let's be honest. Meltzer is clearly biased when it comes to Bucks, Omega, and NJPW and he tends to boost those star ratings up a bit. Thought Omega/Tanahashi was a great match. Not big on star ratings, but I would put it more around 4 1/2 stars. I don't like going over five either.
