@gorillamopena: Worst shirt they've ever done. Fuck Cena forever.

It's pretty funny since it's WWE jumping on a bandwagon several years too late. That said, I don't think anything will ever touch this in terms of awfulness.

I can't decide whether that shirt would be a lot worse or a lot better if it didn't have that belt graphic at the bottom. Just the arrow and "The champ is here."

Get Lucky by Daft Punk.

After that HMX memorial stream last year... man. It's tough.

Same. Earlier this year I was at my sister's wedding reception, and I had to sit down for a moment when the DJ played that song. The weird thing about it was that I didn't even realize why the song bummed me out until later that evening.

I thought that was garbage

Cesaro and Sheamus was incredible though.

I wish they just played Ambrose's music instead of showing the taxi thing because it would have been a better moment, but that's being really picky

It was nice to see Cesaro doing what he does best: cool technical shit that requires a ton of strength.

I kind of liked the taxi entrance. Playing his theme would imply that there was some preparation, with Dean waiting backstage for a dramatic moment. With the taxi, it's like he came directly from the airport because that's how much he needs to punch Rollins in his smug face.

As dumb as it was, I really liked Sandow's invisible belt. I've said this before, but I'm enjoying Sandow's gimmick while I can before WWE inevitably fucks it up somehow. It stinks that they had to let the "special guests" push him around, but at least they framed it as Sandow calling them out first.

But overall I agree that the rest wasn't so hot. To be fair though, I stopped watching partway into the Mark Henry/Rusev match, so for all I know it could have gotten awesome afterwards.

@gorillamopena: Maybe its because Joe Public doesn't know Kenta and will probably chant CM Punk every time he does the move?

Don't they chant CM Punk every time anyone does anything?

Oh and according to the achievement list a certain character from Deadly Premonition might appear: Forrest Kaysen?!

Not really a secret, it's been revealed previously. Plus, he's a recurring character in Swery's games, even if there's no correlation between them.

Oh well, I hadn't been following the game and besides Deadly Premonition I don't know much about SWERY's games, but thanks for the info :)

Yeah, in Spy Fiction, he's some kind of scientist or engineer or something, if memory serves.

By the way, should I buy Spy Fiction? My favorite game store had a copy but I don't know if I should give it.

Also, GOTY... please?

I personally haven't played it. I did watch the very thorough Let's Play by SuperGreatFriend. He also did a 100% LP of Deadly Premonition where he shows all SORTS of crazy stuff that neither of the DP Endurance Run teams found across.

I'm happy that they're doing something (dumb) with Sandow. I recognize that WWE could drive the whole bit straight into the ground or otherwise ruin it at any minute, but at least for this brief shining moment they're doing something decently.

I went to one just north of Atlanta in the area's Koreantown, and it was delicious. I forget the name of it, but we got something where you combine Hite beer with some kind of rice wine or liqueur and that was also delicious. Then we went across the street for karaoke and got really drunk. Koreantown is awesome.

Between the tables with built in grills and stone bowls that are so hot they cook your food at the table, getting shitfaced drunk at a Korean restaurant sounds... dangerous, to say the least. Although I suppose not all Korean restaurants provide the diners so many ways to horrifically burn themselves.
