    Not sure which is more ridiculous: the ring itself, or the box it came in that PLAYS VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS of the World Series.

    I really hope they never offer a collectible replica of that ring package. 

    I might have to kill me before my wife does. 

  2. I've had the Halloween Collection set for a while and never watched anything on it outside of 1-3 and the Rob Zombie universe films. 

    Decided it was time to inflict them on my wife, who had no idea any of them existed, and watched the Thorn Trilogy and H20 over the weekend. 

    The Thorn Trilogy is brought down by whatever cut of #6 that you choose. 

    To waste a good character in Jamie for two, not as bad as they could have been, films to treat her to #6 is criminal. 

    H20 was fine and should have been a (semi) satisfying ending to the franchise. 

    I did want most of the cast to be consumed in a volcano, but it is what it is. 

    Haven't shown my wife Resurrection yet, because I know it will cause cussing. 

    I'm just not spiritually ready for it at the moment. 

    After rewatching the Thorn Trilogy I do have a slight bit more respect for the Zombie films, as it seems he touched on so many of the themes they were going for in 4-6, but he decided to not linger in that ditch.

  3. Watched Vegas Vacation for the first time over the weekend and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the flick. 

    Had heard how bad it was for years and just avoided the mess. 

    Turns out it was not an embarrassment, *cough* Christmas Vacation 2, and got a Sid Caesar appearance to top it off.

    I got my ass handed to me quite a bit when starting Pacman 99.  I think I got the hang of it now to at least get in the 40s for ranking but man is it a chaotic one.  I'd say moreso than Tetris 99 but oddly still manageable enough to work.  Now if I'm fighting for top spot then I'm sure that'll be a different story but it's wild to see folks there already on level 20.

    I can get in to the 30s/40s, but the times that I revert to trying to play Pac-Man are what sink me more than anything.

    The explanation for what's going on continues to be vague, just like Mario 35 and Tetris 99.

    Or maybe I'm old and can't keep up with the busy display.

  5. I haven't been a stathead for a long time. 

    The 80s and 90s were my prime years interest-wise for sports. 

    Getting older and losing most of the friends I ran with for sports had a lot to do with my disinterest. 

    Last week I got the urge to play a baseball game, so I checked out the upcoming games. 

    My research hasn't yielded good results. 

    RBI 21 has numerous graphical glitches that take me out of the game and I feel that simming with it would probably be a bad experience. 

    OutOf The Park 22 has too much munutiae and I feel it would be hard for me to pick up. 

    The last OOTP I bought was 17 and I barely played that one. 

    With MLB The Show coming out next month, I'm not certain that's going to scratch my baseball itch either. 

    Too much Ultimate Team gatcha crap with their recent releases. 

    09 was the last The Show I truly enjoyed. 

    TLDR: I'm old and don't enjoy things like I did previously.

    Normally I stick to dex fighters in RPGs but when DA4 comes out I may have to play this PIMP MAGE~! from the latest concept art.

    Damn, that looks like something that would not be out of place in Bloodborne. 

    Looking forward to this one.

    So I've finally gotten tired of waiting around and want to see if I can finally get my hands on a PS5.

    Anyone got any tips?

    Best Buy had a drop today. 

    I looked at the sale and there was a one week delay on picking it up. 

    Amazon is supposedly sitting on 46,000 units, but they did not drop them yesterday as reported. 

    I want one, but I'm not sure that I want it for the right reasons.

    I swear, Dalton's career skipped the "prime" portion. He went from talented up and comer to washed up without a stop in-between.

    A decade with the Bengals will do that to anyone.
