I enjoyed the wrasslin' show last night. Usos/Wyatts is a MOTY candidate.

So NJPW is having their big G1 thing eh. I want a piece of that. I don't have time to watch all 12 shows, especially by August 17th when the replays stop, so does anyone have recommendations on which shows to check out? I look at the cards and have no idea what I'm looking at, outside of Shelton Benjamin and AJ Styles.

Dark Souls. This is Dark Souls. There are few games I've played over the past 10 years that exemplify those principles and ideas more than DS does. Though I'd imagine it wouldn't reveal itself as such to a videogaming "newcomer", as it took even the larger gaming community a few years to "get it".

WWE is pretty alright right now, outside of the fatal bore-way approaching, things look good. Cena left such a bad taste in my mouth though that I decided I needed to get into another promotion, so I checked out Ring Of Honor's Best In The World PPV from the 22nd. Awesome. But what do I do now? Do I keep up with ROH TV, or is it just PPVs?

I can't really say since I don't tend to watch ROH, but the reviews of ROH TV on the Bryan & Vinny show have been pretty positive of late.

May I suggest you start watching some NJPW/puro?

As for Emma, obviously the solution here is to lean into her Australian heritage and give her a convict gimmick. We're all filthy criminals down here.

Where do I start with NJPW? I saw that ROH/NJPW put on two joint shows a little while back, but I don't know if that would be the appropriate introduction.

@hadoken101: I notices they have ROH tv on the site. I think it's subscription based, do you know if that's the same weekly program on TV?

Just picked up DmC and I'm really enjoying it. I'm a fan of the Devil May Cry series, I even loved 4 and played it a ton, and I'm really digging this one. 30 FPS was a bit of a bother at first, but I've adjusted. The biggest issue for is that the weapons don't feel unique to each other; so far all the weapons feel similar. Rebellion and the angel weapon feel like they have the same move set, as do the demon weapon and the fists, and overall it doesn't feel like there's as much ridiculous potential for combos that there was in 3 and 4, but it's honestly a great time and it doesn't hurt it too much for me. I'm still pulling off some fun, sick looking combos so I'm satisfied. I was never those guys doing youtube DMC3 combos anyway.

I also don't think I've ever seen a game manipulate the environment like DmC, the way the environment morphs, breaks and bends is stunning to look at and I can't get enough. It's like watching environments get chopped and screwed.

I did all of the Mako missions on all three of my playthroughs.

Don't read too many tips.

Relish the time that you know nothing. I miss the early days of learning the systems and exploring for the first time. I'll never have the experience of playing through Dark Souls for the first time again, so don't read too many tips!

I created a pure strength build for my first character, and I just started NG+. I want to incorporate some sort of magic in this build, and I wanna get some opinions on how to make changes. I'm not interested in offensive magic, but I may want to try out some miracles. Maybe weapon buffs if they're available? Otherwise it's mostly just wanting to use magic weapons.

Lv141

VGR: 39

END: 30

VIT: 30

ATN: 5

STR: 40

DEX: 20

ADP: 20

INT: 5

FTH:5

I've never built a magic character, so I have no idea where to even begin. I use pretty heavy weapons, so I like my endurance. I know I'm going to have to take some points out of VGR and VIT, but I'd like to hear what you guys think. INT vs FTH?

Small Business Man is my favorite Persona 4 NPC.

I had a feeling he'd garner some attention and love; their dumb ramblings about random SBM antics are usually quality stuff.

Also, this depiction looks like a Spelunky character. Just putting that out there, and implying heavily there should be one made.

Small Business Man would be great in Spelunky. He's got to reach the post office at the center of hell!

I'd exclusively use a Small Business Man Spelunky skin.
