I never believed this was coming out this year, called it as such a month or so back. They way they should it off a few months back, it seemed SUPER unlikely to come out this year - it doesn't even have a proper name yet.

I love that the Owens/Riley totally went like it should have: the top-dog champion beats the shit out of the rusty under-achiever, and mocks him whilst doing so. Elsewhere on the NXT Ohio show, I got a good kick out of Breeze/Kalisto, reminding me that they should just can Sin Cara and try to develop Kalisto as a singles guy.

This generation has been so strange so far. It is not like the PS4 and XONE haven't been financial successes; the PS4 has sold WAY faster than any of the systems from the previous generation over it during its first months on the market (the Wii likely beats it in the longer term). Nonetheless, The slow death of the big-budget game has been hard to ignore There is less and less being produced out there and even less that I want to actually play.

Big-budget games ("triple A", but I've never liked the term) appear to be fading away. This saddens me. I want more opportunities to throw a new, big-ass game into my PS4. While the occasional title stepped up to the plate last fall, there wasn't enough. Just look at the retail calender between now and July: its a near wasteland. While Batman, The Witcher, and co certainly seem like big releases, there just isn't very much to choose from.

Of course the indies have taken the place of many of these blockbuster games to pad out the calender. Rightfully so, too, with most innovation these days coming from these small studios/single-person teams. And yet I still feel like something is missing. I just recently built a gaming PC, and it is making me realise how little use my PS4 is to me. All the best indies come out on both. There is only one exclusive worth a damn coming out this year in Bloodborne, and I truly doubt anything new will be announced for Q4 from Sony. Times are weird, folks.

Just before this week's episode of Raw someone in this thread stated, and I'm not sure who it was, that this is the worst WrestleMania build in years. At first I was inclined to disagree. Sure it has been bad, but it would have to be a LOT worse to reach the level of awful that surrounded the build to WrestleMania NY/NJ AKA WM29. That was the kind of show where, about two weeks from the actual event, it was super easy to forget that WrestleMania was coming up.

After this week's Raw, its clear that were getting close to this low bar of quality. You know what appeares to be the problem? They're done. They ran out of build two weeks ago. They dragged out Rollins/Orton as they had nothing else to do, the ladder match is the ladder match,, Bray Wyatt has been repeating himself for weeks and Lesnar is never around enough to keep the Reigns burning (although Heyman is doing the lord's work on the mic). I feel, ultimately, Mania will be better than the shit it is catching in this thread right now. Matches like the aforementioned Rollins/Orton will be fun when we get to them. Am I disappointed in the run-up? Of course! It will likely be a better show than expected but my plan to duck out the week after the RAW AFTER MANIA is looking more solid by the week.

I don't know about you folks but I was very disappointed in the Rhodes/Rhodes match. Cody... I mean Stardusts promo afterwards was terrific but I found the match itself to be very plodding. You get that in a "story" heavy WWE match sometimes, instead of an actual story they just take FOREVER to go through with the match (see that Wrestlemania Taker/HHH cell match for example). The crowd was DEAD for it too.

I don't watch Lucha Underground. Not out of spite or anything, its just I don't live in the US and I am not too fussed on torrenting it every week, and I can only watch some much wrestling in a week (i.e. fast-forwarding through Raw, and NXT).

Will there be a season finale at some point? With the way the show seems to be storyline-focused than WWE, is it planned for it to go all year round or while there be a break after like 24/25 episodes or what have you.

Even after the negativity, I highly recommend watching the Reigns/Lesnar interview, which is one of the best segments they've done in a very long time, so shortage of credit goes to the masterful Paul Heyman. It's always been a love of mine when they go for non-live segments, Raw would be significantly improved with them more often.
