    2011 is the only actual answer. Some of the others have been good, but so many great jokes and moments came out of the 2011 fight. To this day I feel the greatest fuck you Ryan Davis ever delivered wa...

    I'd be down. I sadly only have my RB guitar at the moment (drum kit won't fit in this tiny apartment, haha), but that sounds like it shouldn't be a problem. I'm one of the few people I know close to n...

    I cannot imagine so no. Like Bigsocrates said Sega is the easy answer for another big acquisition. The game divisions of Warner or Bandai Namco I could also see as possibilities, I don't think they ha...

    I can not see a world in which it comes in $100 lower. At most the big PS5 will match at $500, with the discless about $50 cheaper. I think they got caught on this one, they probably want $600 and st...
