@turboman: This sometimes works and depends on the bar, I've been to several that will show every fight regardless of having to switch channels, and then I've been to some where they will only show the PPV and we have to practically beg them to turn it on a smaller tv so we can at least see them.

I feel bad because I don't remember that mode, damn.
They are probably on Fight Pass and I don't know if I can...say some other options to watch it, but I know of some...

Agree with everything you said and why I take most reviews with a grain of salt nowadays, especially ones that rely so heavily on internet interaction (Simcity, BF4, Titanfall, etc). I disagree somewhat on Dark Souls 2 only because I don't care about the online part as much as the single player stuff. I played Demon's Souls recently with little interaction and it was totally fine, at least you can play DS2 offline and still have essentially the same experience. Titanfall on the other hand IS online interaction and EVERY game sucks at launch. Every. Single. One. I don't have sympathy for those that engage on day one launches of multiplayer only games, you HAVE to know what you are getting into at this point.
BUT I hate reviews even more that run before hand that give amazing scores and the game is unplayable at launch and days, weeks, even months afterwards. Its gross and Polygon's stupid "we go back in and edit scores" B.S. is the worst. It really means nothing, its not like metacritic goes in and re edits scores, they said they won't so it really is worthless and just an excuse of "we didn't know it would be that bad so we are un-recommending it. That doesn't help the end consumer. I at least like Joystiq's idea because they don't change their initial score but at least try to inform the consumer that there is problems, it's not perfect but it is a start.
It sucks but for me personally I'm glad because it gives me more time to play the first two, I haven't wanted to play them for years now but just keep pushing them back but I want to knock them out before 3's release. I do want to do the Vinny treatment and read the book before I play the games also so I have a lot ahead of me.
Is there a particular reason why you guys run these programs or just pure curiosity at how well your computer is running something?
If I had to think of one….god that is really hard, I'll give two though one is a "scene" and the other is a character and every scene he is in is my favorite.
- ALL of Hans Landa scenes, he is the greatest character ever created. I have never loved and hated someone so much as I watch a movie, brilliant writing and acting. Favorite out of the bunch? That opening scene is hard to beat, perfect in my opinion.
- The last 15 minutes of Hot Fuzz. I just smile like an idiot every time I watch the ending, so great, so funny, so awesome, great parody and homage in its entirety.
