That Ring of Honor show is tonight. I most likely won't be watching it but it looks like a hell of a card. Hope no one gets injured before the PWG show later this week since that show will surely be amazing. Is Jay Briscoe still undefeated? If so I can't imagine Adam Cole being the guy to break it though I am a huge fan of his work. I'm not clear if RoH concerns itself with getting proper heat for your heel guys so I could imagine Cole running with it especially if they go with a screwy finish.

For the handful of weeks that I was actually interested in ROH at the beginning of this year, it seemed like the only two heels with actual heat were Adam Cole and Matt Fucking Hardy.

It will be really interesting to see how the UFC presents him; will they be upfront about the fact that he will be fighting less experienced fighters? Will his fights get main event slots even though other fights would be more deserving?

Per ESPN:

"He wanted to fight here," White told ESPN.com. "He wanted to give it a shot, so we gave him an opportunity. It's not like Brock Lesnar. We're not going to throw the kitchen sink at him. Lesnar had a wrestling background. [CM Punk] is going to fight a guy who is 1-0, 1-1, 2-1 -- something like that."

So.... yeah. He's just getting to do something he's always wanted to do. I, like most other people, have my reservations given his age and injury history, but I love the guy and hope he does well. I don't think anyone's expecting him to come out and be challenging for titles or anything.

It's no different than event or concert tickets breaking servers and selling out instantly. People just want to be mad about something, I guess.

If I am not enjoying a game, I will stop playing it. That's a lesson that it seems most people on the internet still need to learn.

Heroes was the first bad game, which I think means I should vote for Post Adventure 2?

Me/girlfriend/brother/friend all got tickets so I'll definitely be there.

Anyone else on the staff mentioned whether they will/will not be there?

The name filtering in Dark Souls 2 is also pretty ridiculous, with names like Thomas, Knight and Jack censored into T**mas, K***ht and ****. It makes sense to have it because of multiplayer (and it only censors in multiplayer too), I don't get why Persona Q would have something like that.

The list of words censored in Dark Souls 2 itself is a fun read (warning: naughty language, obviously). I wonder what it's like to be the person who had to write these.

Hahahahaha, man; that list has some real gems in there.

Your post is too vague. You say there's no way to negotiate around the conflict, but did you make any attempt to? How much time in advance were you aware that this conflict existed? Quite a while, I'd imagine, as you should have known your final exam times when the semester started.

I don't know about you, but I went to the University of Texas at Austin from 09-13 and we literally didn't know our final exam days, hours, or locations until less than 2 weeks before the semester was over.

You're just not hip enough to live in Austin, man. Come back when you can deal with my fresh vibes.

@capum15: The leveling changes seem pretty dumb; that's kinda the only reason I would start playing again (to level a new guy). Did they ever raise the level cap or add another tier of gear? IIRC between my 3 max level (80?) chars I had 2 in full... uh... orange? tier gear, and maybe 1-2 pieces of the... pink? ascendant maybe? gear. I have no problem with gear grinds in MMOs, but the one in GW2 the last time I was playing was, IMO, completely ridiculous. I also didn't like the dungeon design (as far as no trinity), so I probably only ever ran 15-20 of those.

Also, was Lion's Arch the pirate city or the human city? I'm usually super frugal in MMOs so I liked that that city had portals to everywhere else.

Also also, is there any way for me to play through all that living story stuff that I missed? As I understand it, I could if I had logged in while each event was happening, but since I didn't, I'm out of luck?
