  1. NJPW World Tag League 2017

    The second they announced the Elgin/Cobb tag team I (and I'd imagine a few others) though A) Cobb's gonna get over and B) It's gonna piss Mike off. What a self-defeating dumbass.
  2. Funniest wrestling name you have heard?

    For years I've dreamed of seeing a wrestler named "Ostentatious" Austin Davis.

    I didn't like keeping areas of certain maps behind high-level monsters in XC1 until I got beefed up enough to beat them, then I loved having a reason to go back to prior areas. Reaching Lvl 99 in these games isn't nearly as difficult as something like a Final Fantasy.

    Xenoblade 2 is a hot mess, tonally inconsistent in design and narrative. Cringe-worthy anime tropes that the previous two games did a really good job of avoiding, a messy UI with one of the most broken map systems I've ever seen, and a lack of technical polish that backs up anyone's fears that this game would be a rush-job. With that said, the core gameplay is still *good*. Incredibly worthwhile open-world stuff once you're out in the field, an engaging combat system and an absolutely AAA soundtrack. If you're on the fence, dust off your Wii and play the original. It's like 40 bucks used if you missed it the first time around.
  5. Almost seems like a worse matchup for Nico. Either way, Valentina comes in and kills everybody in a few months. Or Joanna. Or I dunno, Meisha friggin' Tate.

    If you're poking around the eShop, it all begins and ends with Golf Story. It's got everything, golf, a story, etc. Or... you're like me and rarely buy anything on Steam. I've been catching up on all these indie modern-classics on the Switch and I have to decide which ones I can take or leave. Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth + probably has more hours on it than any game on the console, I just picked up (and quickly beat) VVVVVV, and I'm as good as in on Hollow Knight and Owlboy when they drop. The girlfriend wants The End is Nigh. I'll buy Night In The Woods again when Weird Autumn drops and if the price comes down years from now on physical copies of Cave Story I wouldn't mind going through that again. Same goes for Shovel Knight. Axiom Verge looks appealing but I've still got some Castlevanias left to beat (and Hollow Knight). Couldn't get into Steamworld Dig so the sequel's out. Wish I liked Crypt of the Necrodancer. I treasure my romantic relationship and the girlfriend *gets mad at games* so maybe no Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime - Snipperclips is harrowing enough. On the fence with World of Goo, Thimbleweed Park, Shantae, GoNNER, Octodad, Battle Chef Brigade, Terraria, and a thousand other et ceteras. No Stardew Valley. I've got the rest of my life to figure out if I want to play Stardew Valley. The last few years I've played three Yakuzas, three Dragon Quests (including the SLOG of VII), two Pokemon, Persona 3: FES, BotW, nearly 100%'ed Xenoblade Chronicles (with the sequel coming out in like, a week), Tactics Ogre + Breath of Fire + Super Mario RPG on SNES, MGSV and probably another few INSUFFERABLE JAPANESE TIMESINKS that I can't seem to break away from. Oh, and the 200+ hours on Isaac. I need to go back to school. ACK!

    DQV hits some storytelling highs the series hasn't even attempted before or after. PROTIP: Pick the mean wife.
  8. NJPW World Tag League 2017

    Chuck is the only career indy goof who I consistently believe.
  9. Purotopia General Discussion: 2017!

    Yeah, it was a GBH thing.
  10. Super Mario Odyssey

    There are no lives/Game Overs and a lot of the initially required moons aren't very hard to get to. I'd say give it a shot as it is before changing over.
  11. Super Mario Odyssey

    Got 103 on my first try in Jump Rope. There are those of us who have played Final Fantasy IX and there are those who haven't.
  12. NJPW World Tag League 2017

    Ishii's billed weight puts him in the Junior division. Every year I pray for his surprise entrance in the BoSJ so he can run the block and put somebody over in an insane final.
  13. NJPW WrestleKingdom 12 in Tokyo Dome 1/4/2018

    Explaining Jericho vs. Omega to my father, former record industry sales guy. vs .
  14. NJPW WrestleKingdom 12 in Tokyo Dome 1/4/2018

    There's a lot of workrate question marks in three of the big four singles title matches. Jericho, Jay White and Cody are likely not going to bring it at the level we expect from the last few Wrestle Kingdoms. The IWGP Junior Heavyweight title match resets things from last year's all-Japanese no-bullshit star-making glory right back to the old clusterfuck booking of juniors on big shows. The NEVER match is going to have to *bring* *it*. What the show will likely lack in match quality compared to the last few years I expect to be made up for in spectacle, which NJPW isn't always the best with.
  15. NJPW Power Struggle 2017 (With Super Junior Tag Action!)

    If I'm a supernova of charisma with physical limitations like 2017 Chris Jericho and I'm told I have to follow Okada vs. Naito for the belt in the Tokyo Dome I'm not even signing the contract. But I do have to imagine it'll be the co-main.
