  1. I really like your post overall. But is Canelo a safe yardstick for these comparisons? I get that fighters are worth what companies are willing to pay. But Canelo money seems to me to be DAZN making a statement rather than a sustainable business model. UFC aren't a startup trying to woo the biggest stars. They're the main player in the game and have the guy under contract. Way different market position and bargaining position.
  2. I love that game so much. The gameplay is obviously excellent. But the combination of the play zones and the fact it's a handheld game makes it feel like you're playing an actual toy. If that makes sense. A bunch of little 3D toy worlds in your hand. That's great. And I agree. But what is the likelihood of a mini-DC having a bunch of obscure games on it?
  3. I don't know why, but I love the music on this! That bit halfway through, when it slows down... dreamy. I skipped current gen, so I'll likely get a PS5 initially for the PS4 games I didn't get. As long as the hardware doesn't need iterating.
  4. I didn't mind the show. But I watched it back to back with the previous week's, so it blends in a bit. Cody-Lance has been booked pretty well. I liked their little brawl the other week where neither man got to pull off a special move. Saves it for the match. Elite-Circle went less well. The go-home was essentially the PPV match. I was hoping they'd save the return of Hangman for a PPV surprise, but we got it on free TV, so I don't know what the PPV natch is supposed to be. I want to like Brodie Lee, but he's a bit boring. Britt Baker is great. Loved her ragging Statlander in her sub outside the ring, the previous week, getting that over. But the knee injury this week doesn't fill me with optimism. Along with Jericho, she's the best heel in AEW.
  5. Neil is right, but the games still came out over here. Bonk was sadly renamed BC Kid.
  6. Man, I never really give Kordell the credit he deserves. My abiding memory of the guy is the picks he threw to the Pats in 2001. They were like daggers to my 21 year old heart.
  7. You make a very good point about seniority, which makes that excerpt even more disappointing. Bravo simultaneously talks about how he's been at 150 UFCs, and everyone knows how experienced he is, and then goes on about how he didn't want to be head coach, he can't talk to Tony in that situation, his glasses went missing. Like @Craig H says, he has one skill (at an admittedly insane level), which he has parlayed into wealth (cool) and millions of people hearing him every week (not so cool). Were he a boxer and not a BJJ guy, I'd say that he had one too many punches to the noggin, but maybe he's just a dumb guy with one great skill. Anyone who watches the Premier League knows how prevalent that is.
  8. Just wait until you play it. You'll forget about backlog and budget.
  9. Man, I don't know. I was playing it last week on that dinner plate-sized controller and I did the first "dungeon" happily enough. Maybe it gets bad later?
  10. Good grief, that is one effed up poker game. And the watches don't quite rival Dele Alli's stolen watches, but still seem pretty decent: how the wealthy party, hey.
  11. Devil's Crush may be "just" a pinball game, but it's awesome and addictive.
  12. I didn't know that Terrorizer had officially died, but I assumed that was the case. Decibel always seemed pretty good. I assume they're still going. Invisible Oranges is a decent site. Angry Metal Guy has a lot of reviews, but is very much on the cheesy end of the spectrum. Toilet ov Hell are really good for death metal. When I'm not lazy, I have my moments...
  13. Ah, cheers. My yardsticks were the facts that Overeem is a touch older than me and Lesnar was 24 when he debuted in WWE. I was a big Lesnar mark...
  14. Aww, Guerilla Radio for me. I can still picture my routes to that song, 20 years later.
  15. 34 and 31. Without looking it up, that must be the best part of a decade ago. 2012? At the time, a real statement of intent from Overeem. He was the best heavyweight ever, back in the... assisted days.
