@dazzhardy: ugggggh why does wwe do this to me. Here I was thinking he weren't going to see Cena for a while. Now we get another few weeks of "I never give up" promos.

I didn't see Raw this week: did Cena show up?

@hadoken101: I was just talking about this with a friend. Watch WWE turn this into the ultimate "Cena never gives up" as he trains for the rematch and beats Lesnar.

I loved the last match. Have not seen Cena lose like that in..... forever.

I see a few people saying Lesnar is going to win and there is not going to be a cash-in: what gives? Lesnar isn't full time so what is he going to do with the titles? Throw them on the floor when he leaves?

People who are indicating who is 'winning' are no longer coming from the (relatively) unbiased position of having neither console. Many now own a PS4 (many more than own XBones) and thus are now biased in favor of perceiving themselves as having made the right choice.

For my money, I was on the PS4 bandwagon for a good while, but with the announcement of the Tomb Raider exclusive and the arrival of some Halo information, I'm drifting back toward MS.

This. Watching people that bought a ps4 flip out over Tomb Raider has been interesting, to say the least. Lots of people trying to justify their purchase.

Guess what: It's google's store and they can choose to delete or keep anything they want.

If you don't like it, don't use their system.

If you are on the side of israel, please get off the internet and lock yourself in a bomb shelter so we never have to hear or see any of your words again

You have no problem allowing Google to have that much power over the smartphone market? 85% of smartphones run android. Can I install a different store front on an android phone?

It was quite clearly censorship. I don't understand why this is a debate. It fits every possible definition of the term. The game was obviously in horrendous taste and, most likely, not even a particularly good product in a mechanical sense, so I don't really weep all that much for its removal, but I am personally logical enough to recognize that is a potentially dangerous attitude to take about the removal of art because what "good taste" is is utterly subjective and could suddenly be applied to any number of things I like, which is why I'm not really comfortable with this whole ordeal.

I don't think many people spend very long thinking about the logical conclusion of some of the things they say.

I have to agree with this. Some of the comments in this topic scare me.

"I don't like this app remove it!!!!"

The excuse used seems to be that since Google is a private company, they can do what they want on their store. The problem is that right now you have two players that control the smartphone market: Apple and Google. If they remove a game, the game is effectively dead. The argument that I can side load the app is ridiculous: there is no easy way to play this game on my Android device if Google blocks it from the store. Think about the power given to Google under this line of thought.

Here's an idea: if you find the game offensive don't play it. But why can't I play it? Why do you care if I can download it from the Google store?

I used to love it, but a few weeks ago, I went back and played it again with a friend in college. Man, that game is terrible! The tracks suck, controls don't feel quite right, and there are Bob-ombs walking the tracks in multiplayer. Do yourself a favor: if you have a game you loved as a child, don't go back and play it when you're an adult.

This. This x100. I'm pretty sure people that like MK64 have not played that game in 10 years. It's by far the worst MK game.

I thought the movie was rather boring to be honest. The entire first hour was a waste of time: did anyone not roll their eyes when the wife dies up against the glass in the power plant? Could a movie death be any more contrived? Also, what was up with the train/bridge scene? You have this massive warhead and you send it by train with 4 marines to guard it? Even when you know the monsters can detect nuclear sources? And then you arm the bomb on the boat in the harbor!? Everything around the Godzilla was so dam stupid.

The EMP wouldn't allow them to carry it any other way, so they used the train, and I assume most of the Military was trying to keep the monster at bay

But after the train crashes they come in and pick up the bomb on a helicopter............

......and put it right on a boat which can be shut down by the EMP, which is exactly what happens after they arm the bomb in the harbor. Not sure if there is anyway to spin that entire sequence without using the word "dumb" in some fashion.
