I've been wanting to say something about the Hulk Hogan news and it really sucks to see someone who I admired as a young kid say some pretty disgusting words. I know there have been stories about Terry Bollea being a jerk, but the recent rant proves he's a racist scumbag. Glad the WWE fired him, but I think that their movements to erase every bit of their history associated with Hulk is too much. One, I'm against revisionist history. Two, how can they remove Hulk's history when he was THE GUY of their company? He was the main event man for 8 of their 9 first Wrestlemanias, and headlined WM 18 with The Rock. I get that this is mainly for PR and maybe there's more nasty stuff that Bollea said to warrant the Chris Benoit treatment, but still, the WWE made Hogan into the most famous wrestler of the 80's and early 90's.

Plus as other members have commented, WWE is showing some double standards about its Hogan situation when its clear the WWE has a racist history. If they're treating Hogan this way, same should be done to people like Michael Hayes.

Happy Birthday Austin!

I just realized with Ballers on, The Rock is going against the WWE for ratings tonight, or at least for 30 minutes.

Also: Man I've sucked at these picks tonight. I just hope Owens gets the US Title at Summerslam.

I'd like to see a Splatoon Us vs. Them. I was also gonna say Mario Kart 8, but that would just turn into Alex vs. Dan since those would be the only two who would be willing to play MK8.

Maybe do an Us vs. Them with that most recent NFL Blitz?

I have two others to recommend. The first one is Rome Total War. The music just fit the tone of the game so perfectly as if you really were a Roman general leading your legions into battle, or a general of another ancient power. Never really hear this game brought up for best OST's in strategy games.

The other one is a game that I never actually played, but after watching videos of it and listening to its soundtrack, I desperately want to play it. The game I'm talking about is the forgotten Sega Saturn game, Mr. Bones. The game itself is supposed to be nuts as the levels rarely stay in one gameplay style, like going from 2D platforming in one level to playing a guitar in the next. The soundtrack was composed by the late and great Blues guitarist, Ronnie Montrose, and its amazing.

Best thing about last night's RAW was Cesaro's double suplexes on Kevin Owens and Rusev. All of that was really impressive. That triple threat match overall was pretty spectacular and Rusev has honestly gotten better.

RIP Iwata. As someone who's owned a Nintendo DS and Wii, I want to thank Iwata for his contributions to those systems and joy I had playing on the DS and Wii. He also seemed to have such a goofy and brilliant sense of humor in the Nintendo Directs. This is a big loss for the games industry and he'll truly be missed.

This is incredibly sad, I never knew his health problems were this serious until now. RIP, my prayers go out to his family and friends.
