Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O' Doomers!

Well the Road to Wrestlemania comes to its final turn tonight.

I will admit, the ending last week with Sting and Orton cleaning house got me a little interested. It looked cool, it was fun, it promoted a couple of programs and worked for all involved. I am an easy sell though because I love Wrestlemania. Even if I'm not crazy about the booking or the direction I want to see the pagentry, see the ring entrance set up, check out the atmosphere, etc.

As for the Wrestlemania threads, I think we'll stick with last year's plan of having a thread for pre-show and doing them hourly for the show. Disqus probably can't handle 5-10K posts on a single thread. Last year we hit about 10-12K between the five of them. If someone has a better idea, I'm all ears.

As for TV tonight

Wrestlemania go home show for RAW

New Episodes of Better Call Saul, Dancing with the Stars, The Voice, American Dad, Scorpion, Bates Motel, etc. etc.

7 NHL Games, 6 NBA Games, Second Round of Women's NCAA tournament begins...Probably some Men's NIT too.

Enjoy and Keep it Clean!

  56. I've not watched an episode of Raw since Fast Lane, after a solid 10 years of not missing a single one, other than the occasional Christmas episode. I have no inclination to watch tonight's either.

    This is a sad, sad indictment of the current 'Road to Wrestlemania' - I can pretty much predict tonight's show will open with a 20 minute Rollins/J&J/Kane/Big Show/Orton talking segment, with maybe a couple of other faces getting involved like Henry, setting up the main event tag match. There will be a throwaway Divas match - AJ v Nikki, say, with Paige and Brie at ringside, which will end in shenanigans. There will be a short IC title clusterfuck, ending with Barrett or Ambrose standing tall (Ziggler or Bryan as an outside bet). We will see a Sheamus promo video. Triple H will come out and talk for a bit, Sting will inturrupt and possibly point his bat at someone. Rusev and Cena will have a talkie segment. Miz and Sandow will have a brief backstage skit/altercation. Lesnar will stand still, expressionless, as Heyman talks about how great Reigns could be, if he wasn't facing Lesnar. We will see a video package about Roman Reigns' Samoan heritage.

    In the three hour show, there will be a grand total of 35-45 minutes of Wrestling. Around 80% of the IWC will fall asleep or go off on an online rant.

    Have I missed anything?

    So now it kind of is a normal Final Fantasy you can play at your own leisure, I just love it because due to the MMO aspect there is SOOOOO much story, they basically incorporated every character from every game into it too which is fun

  71. I would love a deathmatch shooter where there's an expansive map, full of buildings with multiple floors, and the focus is on a careful, sneaky stalking of your opponent, the aim to be snipe them before they snipe you.

  112. I know everyone harps on how bad the announcing is, but rewatching the Goldust/Stardust match at Fastlane brought it home for me. Right before the match, Dusty talks Goldust out of trying to hurt Cody. Stardust is so mentally unstable that he can't concentrate on offense for more than a few moves at a time.

    Even for two solid guys, that's a hell of a hard story to tell. They were intentionally limiting the in-ring contact to advance a storyline, and relying heavily on the announcing crew to convey the plot. Naturally, the announcers completely missed the story and spent the entire time goofing on both guys, rendering the whole feud DOA.

    It was still a pretty rough match, but it could've at least been something with a competent booth.

  146. I'm going to buy a streaming device this week so I can watch Mania on TV instead of my computer. Any recommendations? Is there any kind of difference in quality between Roku, Apple TV, etc.?

  147. It'll be worth it if it's finally a AAA game that isn't broken at launch

  148. Expanding on video game chat from earlier, favourite video games of each of my platforms I've owned over the years:


    ZX Spectrum: Fantasy Island Dizzy
    Amiga: Megalomania
    NES: Super Mario Bros 3 (still in the running, imo, for the best pure video game of all time)
    Master System: R-Type
    Gameboy: Tetris
    Mega Drive: Kid Chamelon
    SNES: Super Mario Kart (especially Battle Mode)
    Early PC: Sim City
    N64: Starfox
    Dreamcast: Shenmue
    Playstation: Pro Evolution Soccer
    Gamecube: Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
    XBox: Knights of the Old Republic
    Playstation 2: Grand Theft Auto III
    That PC era: Civilisation 3
    Playstation 3: Grand Theft Auto IV
    XBox 360: Fallout 3
    PS Vita: Thomas Was Alone
    Playstation 4: The Binding of Isaac (seriously - I've not played any other PS4 game anywhere near as much)
    Current PC era: Skyrim

    I had a Game Gear too, but I can't really remember getting much joy out of it. Ended up letting my mum keep it as she was addicted to Columns. Also had a Gameboy Advance - which I just played the old Gameboy Tetris on, mainly - and a DS, which I only played brain training games on before giving to my nephew.

    When I think about the amount of money I must've spent on gaming over the years, I'm borderline horrified!!

    Roku 3. I can't harp on that enough.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Ok you sold me. Between that and Def Jam I'll be busy. But I need to beat Hitman:Absolution first. That game is a lot of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Unless people hate-comment I don't think there'll be as much interest this year.

    Second theory, but I already see it's not happening. Scorpion as the main character in MK X.

    That's what's getting me worried. They delayed it 8 months. That should probably be a safe enough buffer to make sure there are no kinks left.

    I've been waiting years for this. Please God don't let this disappoint.

    SNES: Fire Pro x Premium
    PS1: Jackie Chan Stuntmaster
    Genesis: Sonic 2
    PS2:Def Jam Fight for NY
    Xbox 360: MK9.

    ReplyDelete
  160. It was just about perfect in every way. I honestly think I could still pick it up and play it today as easily as I did back then, and probably remember the location of half the warp whistles too! :D

  161. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 23, 2015 at 5:37 PM

    I really wanna play Eternal Darkness and System Shock 2, people say it's fucking scary.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Should be dirt cheap by now. But yeah, MK9 plays great and has enough stuff between Story, Arcade, and Challenge Tower modes that you can play it for months and not get bored. Also the AI lets up if you get stuck on a fight, which is a nice gesture considering there's a lot of handicap matches in Story.

    ReplyDelete
  163. I couldn't get the Fire Pro games in the UK back then, so I never got to experience the joy.

    I do have a soft spot for the old Royal Rumble game on the SNES, though - it was surprisingly decent!

    ReplyDelete
  164. I don't remember much of System Shock 2, but the first one freaked the shit out of me.

    Eternal Darkness is probably just as much 'clever' as 'scary' - the first time it did the "corrupted savegame" thing when my sanity dropped, I crapped myself! Hahah!

    ReplyDelete
  165. SMB1 and 3 are my toss up for GOAT. 3 is superior, with maybe the greatest level design ever, but SMB1 might be the only game that everyone on this planet has enjoyed at some point or another.

    ReplyDelete
  166. That pissed me off about every single Nintendo-made game. Mario Kart, Strikers, Baseball, Tennis and Golf all had AI that made you wanna punch a baby.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Every Nintendo I owned my favourite game starts The Legend of Zelda.
    PC: Half Life
    PS2: GTA San Andreas
    360: Arkham City

    ReplyDelete
  168. Eternal Darkness was great, Nintendo needs more Mature games at that quality

    ReplyDelete
  169. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 23, 2015 at 5:39 PM

    NES: Mario 3
    SNES: Link to the Past
    Ps1: Parasite Eve
    Ps2: Need for Speed Hot Pursuit
    N64: WCW/nWo Revenge
    Xbox: GTA San Andreas
    GameCube: Metroid Prime 2
    NEO-GEO CD: Metal Slug
    360: GTAV

    That covers all the systems I've actually owned in order.

    Can confirm, the cabin I spent Christmas at had an old NES and I replayed parts of 3, it all comes rushing back like riding a bike

    ReplyDelete
  171. Rush 2049 for the Dreamcast was sick

    ReplyDelete
  172. I'm just going with my Nintendo home consoles, although I've owned a Sega Genesis, PS1, and several handhelds too.NES: Super Mario Bros 3 (followed closely by Duck Tales!)
    SNES: Super Mario Kart
    N64: Virtual Pro Wrestling 2

    GameCube: Animal Crossing
    Wii: Super Mario Galaxy 2
    Wii U: Super Mario 3D World


    Wow...I was going to try and diversify to not have so many Mario games, but this is my honest list.

  173. Burt Macklin, FBIMarch 23, 2015 at 5:40 PM

    Do you realize what this place is? Of course people will hate-comment.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Nintendo needs more quality games full stop, unfortunately.

    In terms of my list, I've actually just remembered I owned a Wii for about ten minutes before passing it onto my wee sister. I also owned a Virtual Boy, but can't remember much about the games as it gave me severe migraines after about ten minutes of play!

    GTA San Andreas still awesome after 13 years!

  176. Reminds of what a steaming pile of shit Super Mario Bros 2 was.. especially compared to the other two.

    ReplyDelete
  177. I've been playing it again, the remastered 360 version.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Have you got the remastered Duck Tales? I think it's lost a step over the years and I was viewing it with a thick dose of nostalgia...

    ReplyDelete
  179. Burt Macklin, FBIMarch 23, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Arkham City and San Andreas represent! Your list is one Red Dead Redemption away from being perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Sonic All Stars Racing and its sequel Transformed
    Burnout Paradise
    NFS Most Wanted (the 2012 game)
    Split/Second
    Blur

    ReplyDelete
  181. It was never a Mario game to begin with, and it absolutely showed.

    You ever play the proper Mario Bros 2 (released in the West as "The Lost Levels")? That shit was fiendish!

    I hate the Mario Kart games for that reason alone.

    ReplyDelete
  185. It's kinda ironic that Mario Kart is one of the most kid-friendly games...yet, it invokes the most amount of swearing in a group gaming session with friends.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Have a good evening all. I'll be back for the recap.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Yeah I would've found a different Mario /. The Lost Levels plays like those fan made miss designed to kill you at every step
