Sure. If there's several games coming out around the same time and you know you want to play one more then the rest then it makes sense putting others off if you won't be able to finish it in time. I recently bought all the pokemon games and plan to try and catch them all to fulfill my childhood dream, but I want to play them in order and since the first game is not coming for a week or two I gotta sit here looking at a stack of other games I really want to play. Thankfully/regretfully I don't really like most games that are coming out these days so the few times there are games I'm really looking forward to they are so far apart that I never run into this situation.

As a kid I would have said yes. As an adult who tried to go back and watch it recently I will give a resounding NOPE. If you have never seen it before and you go in with enough expectations that you are going to watch a dumb movie that has no reason to exist, then you can probably enjoy it ironically though.
@demoskinos: @gorillamopena: Now that he has married into money I would love to see this be a build up to him dragging out the old Hunter Hearst Helmsley character. I loved that snobbish rich guy character he played. Was an enjoyable heel. I liked hunter a lot more when he was a small guy before he hulked out.
A friend and I have decided to jump down the rabbit hole of trying to catch them all. Spent way too much money tracking down old games to do it. I will be too busy with that to join in, but maybe next season.
Anyone else notice that they keep doing that road dogg/billy gunn vs uso's tag match? I think they are up to about 20 times now. The part in raw right after the match when they announced that the WWE streaming service had a special that was them fighting AGAIN I audibly laughed out load. It's like their tag division consists of just those two groups.
That crowd was rough. I really hope there was a guy outside selling halls cough drops because those people never stopped screaming for three hours. There were points during the HHH thing at the end where I couldn't even hear the people on the mic.
Has WWE ever done a documentary on the behind the scenes stuff of how a show gets made each week? I would love to see a documentary about the process and crazy amount of work that must go into hauling all that equipment around to each stadium, setting it all up, making sure it all works, the pyrotechnics, the lighting, the microphones, the tv trucks for the onscreen effects/transitions, the titan trons, and all the stuff for the wrestlers in the back. I bet there's some really interesting folks that have been doing that stuff for a long ass time and have some amazing stories to tell.
The time investment needed scares me, but I would like to sit down and try to marathon over a month or two watching every weekly show and build up to PPV for WCW from some point in the early 90's. Because they were on at the same time as WWF I just never watched anything WCW as we were a WWF house. That's what my dad always watched so that's what we watched. I have heard of some things due to hearing other people talking, like the NWO, but I honestly have no clue what anything was in WCW beyond WWF retirees. I remember getting a VHS tape of some WCW matches as a kid where the whole thing took place in a junk yard and in another match they had like 3-4 rings set up and a match was happening in each one and it blew my kid mind. Always made me want to check in on it some day, but I never did.
Maybe once the WWE Network comes out in Canada for real they will have fixed a lot of the search and playback issues I hear folks talking about. Then I will partake in this stupid task.
I just wanted to let you folks know that what I did today is all your fault. After listening to the PowerBombcast show, lurking this thread, and forcing myself to sit through a few train wrecks disguised as weekly shows and PPVs with my dad I think I'm starting to get back into watching wrestling. So much crazy stuff going down in wrestling at the moment I find it hard to look away.
I saw WWE 2K14 on sale today for $39.99 and since I had a $25 gift card it seemed fated that I go pick it up. I'm now impatiently sitting here waiting for my PS3 to download massive updates for the game so I can play it. I haven't played a wrestling game since Smackdown vs Raw 09, but I got super crazy into the create a wrestler aspect of that game and playing people online with my custom CAW's. Is there any chance anyone in here is still playing it on PS3? I always dreamed of getting a Giant Bomb Wrestling Federation going and us having fights with each other, making fake belts, fake PPV's and the like.
