I hope that means we get FF12 International. I'd be interested in playing that again with that job system.

FF12 isn't part of the 13 trilogy.

I misread. When it says "the original game and subsequent adventures in the FF XIII trilogy" and then "all games in the series", I didn't consider they were the same.

Man, Final Fantasy XIII was a mess, at a real fundamental level too. Expertly made, but conceptually broken. Pretty though :)

I don't understand how people didn't see this coming a year ago, or since these games were announced. Destiny, Titanfall and Watch Dogs always reeked of nothing more than a massive hype train. Not to say they're bad , as they look like extremely well made games, but they all seemed like bog-standard ideas with incredibly inflated budgets from day one.

I've discussed this elsewhere, but who else thinks they're just gonna give Most Disappointed to the year of 2014 in gaming in general? With all the GamerGate bullshit, all/most games getting delayed till next year, Destiny and Watch Dogs being general disappointments, and there mostly being nothing to play on new consoles except up-rezzed last gen ports. There's no WAY GB just gives biggest disappointment to one title in particular. The entire concept of triple A games right now is fucked, and I think Gaming in 2014 will take home the award.

Gaming in 2014 is great AND triple A games are fucked. The two aren't mutually exclusive.

Then go play something else! I have zero interest in Destiny, and haven't been interested from day 1.

Get off all the hype trains and play what interests you. :)

I always thought it was 'bonk' without the 'b'

Yeah it's this

My biggest problem with that main event was that WWE has put themselves in a no-win corner. Come Night of Champions, one of two things will happen:

A) CENAWINSLOL and you waste the free level up of "beat the man who ended The Streak" on a guy who's already been established as nigh unstoppable for a DECADE instead of using it on literally anyone else who can use it.

OR

B) Brock crushes Cena again, making Cena clowning the Wyatts - and whoever else he rolls through in the next month - completely pointless and doing nothing but damaging younger talents to, again, prop up the guy who's already been dominant for a decade.

I don't see the issue with B. Brock is a beast that nobody can stop; just because Cena can't do it doesn't mean that the people Cena beats look bad. That happens for other reasons entirely, and has been going on for a long time, aha.

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?
