Picked up Fire Pro Wrestling Returns for PS2 for $5 at GameStop last night. Can't wait to give it a go. I haven't used my PS2 in years.

Best $5 you'll spend all year.

Here's a renaming guide for the roster: http://www.gamefaqs....urns/faqs/38973

I like the video, I really can't stand the music though.

Speaking of brilliant montages though...

There goes an hour or so into CZW videos.

So, I didn't know Ambrose was in CZW.

If you have the time, watch this video. I'm starting to look into the Ambrose bandwagon.

It would be amazing if they made Fandango a serial killer.

Vignettes would be him teaching dance, wooing women, and taking them out on dates. A month later, Cole reads a report about one of Fandango's dancers being found dead.

I have spent way too much of my time posting, editing, posting, and re-editing this Fandango "fanfic." As a grown ass man, I am ashamed. Excuse me.

(I would totally watch this, tho.)

Smackdown Overview:

Bryan/Ryback: It's a PPV quality match up on free TV. Daniel Bryan helped make Ryback legit as Ryback actually sold quite a bit. Definitely worth checking out. Then you can stop watching.

Any chance we ever get to see that screenplay you wrote about the guy killing people going up the staircase?

Thanks. I played the game for a little bit with a buddy last night, seemed pretty legit. Also seems like there is actually a bit of a learning curve to the game (as to how to do certain moves, etc) ... obviously the game came disc only, but was in pristine condition, surprisingly.

I might look into buying an Action Replay Max as well so I can download different theme packs and wrestler packs. Setting up a Monday Night Wars-era WCW Nitro/Clash of the Champions ring (with wrasslers to boot) gets me a little pumped to try out.

The last non-WCW or WWF/E branded wrestling game I have played was Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 -- and that was at least 10 years ago.

Nah, the game really does really work for you, but only if you get the timing down.

If you're a button masher (and I am), don't read instructions (I don't), and tried to import it years ago (I found a copy of Six Man Scramble for Saturn at a game store in the late 90's), and didn't know Japanese (I didn't at the time), it was fucking MERCILESS.

I couldn't figure out why people liked it. But if you get the timing down to the extent that you can play back and forth on higher difficulties, it's crazy satisfying. I wonder if I still have a disc copy somewhere. I know I still have my King of Colosseum discs packed up somewhere.

Haha, yeah... I saw a reviewer said not to mash buttons, and I'm a button masher, so it's a hard habit to break. Got my ass whipped in my first match. Then tried battle royal and was the second person suplexed out of the ring. Hilarious.

What you want to do is start off at the easiest level and practice timing grapples and slowly increasing the difficulty once you get the hang of it. You also want to do the same with strikes as getting the distance and timing down requires some practice as well.

This week I've been going through one of my puro phases. Kept this channel open on one of my other monitors while I did some work.

http://www.youtube.c...low=grid&view=0

When I was a kid, one Halloween I went as The Big Boss Man. Watched him in WWE then WCW then back in WWE. He never got enough love for his work. And aside from Muta, who is like a kindred spirit, I was a big fan of Misawa. There's a six man tag match in the uploads with Misawa, Boss Man, and others you'll surely recognize. I watched that first.

It took awhile for me to unlearn mashing buttons during a grapple when I first started FPR, but after a few days it became second nature and the game became much more fun.

I finished the documentary part of the new Foley video. I'm biased but it was pretty great. Nothing I didn't already know, and they unsurprisingly skipped over his trip to TNA to win the title but he's a really incredible storyteller. In this case it happens to be an abbreviated story of his whole career.

My biggest gripe is that no one has been able to put his best deathmatch against Terry Funk onto a video, ever from what I can tell. It was in Guma, Japan if I remember correctly from his books. I'd still love to see that match.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I -think- it's on ICP's Stranglemania video. Despite it being ICP, it's not a terrible video aside from commentary (which is almost a MST3K type thing) and probably cheap to track down.

Stranglemania was hilarious to watch waay back in the VHS/pre-youtube days. I hated ICP, but thought the first video was a hoot.

I know which match you're talking about but the King of the Deathmatch finals (the Funk/Cactus match on Stranglemania) and the Guma Deathmatch are different matches. I'm not even sure that the Guma one was videotaped at the time.

But yeah, Stranglemania is pretty funny.

As soon as I read the word "Stranglemania" I can hear the commentators going "Drunk Terry Flunk and Cactus Sack!"
