Haven't tried Heroic yet, but Hunter absolutely SMASHED through all the bosses.

They're mostly dependent on having lots of minions in play at all times, so a combination of Explosive Traps and Unleash the Hounds ALMOST makes it trivial. And I am NOT that good at this game. Don't know what you'd call the deck I'm playing, but it's obviously early aggo/beast heavy...zoo??

@hunterzolomon: Kenta does not look happy to be there, it's great.

That's because Vince just asked him "SO! You wanna be a ninja or a sumurai? Either way, yer gonna carry a sword to the ring! You little oriental people love that kind of thing!"

Also: hope you like Intercontinental Titles! At BEST!

@jesus_phish: Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend USFIV. The in-game tutorials/challenges aren't the most robust, but the online support, especially for people just getting into it, are second to NONE (like disaster relief in Beverley Hills). I'd link you to some videos, but honestly just looking up "[fighting game name] basic tutorial" will get you TONS of results.

That said, and I'm not posting this to be a dick or to sound like a bigshot: get ready to lose. A LOT. No matter WHAT game you choose. Almost across the board, the reason I hear people leaving fighting games, and competitive games in general, is "I just couldn't win." Sadly, that's a HUGE part of it. To put it into hopeful anecdote form: I lived with five other guys (with a revolving door of three more) in a house for three years during college. We all went through various forms of employment and unemployment, so there was ALWAYS someone to pick up a controller and play Street Fighter IV for HOURS against. I was the third-to-worst person in our house but after a month, I was getting win streaks online. Because of all that practice. Even getting your ass HANDED to you time and time again is good practice and a necessary part of even getting GOOD at any competitive game.

And for the love of GOD mute your mic. No one's ever going to have anything useful to shout at you. Apologies for the long post.

@alex You may be interested to know if you choose to put him in jail the magic lady turns him into a crow and puts him in a cage. . I almost feel that is a fate worse than death.

I'd agree. Even before I knew what his ultimate fate would be, I didn't want him to go to his grave with the satisfaction of knowing he'd shown everyone that Bigby really WAS just some savage beast.

It just makes me miss JR. Imagine how much more of a legitimate threat Luke Harper would seem if the commentators weren't wondering how often he does his laundry.

The thing that I can't tell, ever, is how much of that kind of talk is the commentators and how much of it is Vince yelling at them telling them exactly what to say. Because when I look back at the times that JBL was doing guest commentary, he was such a better announcer and seemed so much more legitimate and insightful. Then he came on full time and he took this hard swing to being an insufferable heel commentator that barely cares about what's even going on. So it makes me wonder, and I question how much those guys are to blame and how much of the blame should be falling on Vince's head.

Vince has to take at least 90% of the blame. If you can find some of the sat feeds of Raw and SmackDown, you can hear how much Vince pesters them to keep plugging the app or to mention Cena even more, on one SmackDown he has Cole call Summer (maybe it was Layla?) kissing Fandango like three times because he hates the word "kiss" for some fucking reason.

All I know is that NO MAN IN THE RING CAN KEEP ROMAN REIGNS FROM THE TITLE.

I don't care WHOSE fault it was, if Cole had said that one more time, I was switching over to Impact...okay, no I wasn't, that's as empty a threat as I've ever made.

To this day, I don't get how people "in the know" can justify marking out over Hulk Hogan and booing John Cena. They're both big guys (or at least have big guy moves) with limited movesets who're better on the mic than in the ring and who consistently post huge victories, often against "the odds." But one of them actively pushed to keep new talent down while the other keeps posting these huge wins because management wants him to. And the former is the one that still gets huge pops.

You were lucky to see Hogan wrestle on their flagship show (Superstars) ONCE A YEAR. Cena wrestles on TV once a week, sometimes more - not to mention Cena has been on top longer than Hogan was during his first WWF run. If Cena left 2 or 3 years ago and only came back once or twice since then, I'd probably cheer him myself.

Cena never shows weakness, even when it was absolutely a no-brainer (ie the Wyatt feud). Where's the modern day verison of Big Bossman beating the shit out of Hogan with a nightstick? Where's the modern day version of Earthquake fatting all over Hogan and putting him out of action for weeks? The most you ever get are occasional meaningless beatdowns that are immediately disregarded the following week.

Hogan is more accepted because he is from a less cynical era of wrestling and was not shoved down our throats, without fail, every single week.

But that's part of what I'm saying: the people who apparently think themselves ABOVE politics and nostalgia are going CRAZY for Hogan and think they're SO "in the know" for booing Cena. And I get what you mean, I'm not exactly a Cena mark myself, but again: I just watched Wrestlemania IX where Hogan won the belt in a match he wasn't even involved with. After Brett Hart "begged" him to fight Yokozuna, which Hogan DIDN'T WANT TO DO! And then won in 3 moves. Shit like that was common for Hulkster.

@hadoken101 That makes SOME sense, but it still feels like people who should KNOW better. It feels like a large chunk of people boo Cena because it's "hip" to boo Cena. And it's "hip" to cheer Hogan.

@undeadpool: That's weird, the impression I get is that Hogan is universally hated among diehard smarks for pretty much the same reason as Cena. Except Cena has easily surpassed Hogan as the Just Win Everything guy at this point.

I dunno, I just watched 'Mania IX. Hogan won the title in a match he wasn't even involved with and had no reason to be invested in. Cena's had a longer, more consistent career, but the way Hogan used to just stumble into title reigns boggled the mind. And all I ever hear when Hogan comes out is raucous applause, you'd think it'd be more split a la Cena.

@boboblaw: We got a great tag match and that first ladder match was pretty amazing. I'm content with that.

Is anyone going to get that phone? BECAUSE I CALLED IT!!...yeah, I know I'm not the only one, but any excuse to use that Team Fourstar quote.

It was a somewhat underwhelming PPV. Very predictable but some decent matches.

Pros:

  • Tag Title match
  • Divas championship match
  • Both MITB matches were great, lots of drama and neat spots.
  • Good to see Daniel Bryan back. He got the biggest cheers and chants of the night

Cons:

  • Like I said, almost every match (Especially the MITB matches) was predictable
  • I like Cena as a wrestler and outside wrestling but his title reigns have always bored the shit out of me
  • Lack of Bad News Barret

I actually feel like in the wake of Lesnar breaking the streak "predictable " is no longer to be taken for granted. Which is a good thing. And lack of Barret SUCKED, but was no one's fault but, well, Swagger...

I'm not ready to declare it "underwhelming," as I was consistently entertained, even if I didn't always agree with the results.
