#12113768 Ultimate Warrior memorial wrestling thread 1959-2014

When John Cena told Bray Wyatt that the new era had to go through him, that wasn't just some promo, that was a threat and a promise to wrestling fans everywhere.

 

PS: Sandow's 2014 record as of August: 3-98

I think I may bite the bullet and just Redbox Murdered: Soul Suspect and MGS: GZ for PS3. I prefer to play both PS4, but RedBox has a coupon that expires in 3 days for Rent 1 get 1 free I am not fully sure if it works on games though, but I Imagine that if I can get those games I can probably blast through them both in one day.

The Redbox I can walk to never has any good games. And I don't want to bother driving to an out of the way location because I've gotten paper copies the last 4 times I tried to rent games.

 

Plus no PS4 games sucks.

 

I figure Gamefly will be nice to pick up the occasional Vita or 3DS game as well. Don't even need the 2 games plan since I can barely make it through a single game as is (and I assume I should be near a shipping center but I haven't used them for a couple years), so that would only cost about $9/month.

Man I still wanna play soul suspect I was hoping there was a sale next week.

Games like that (plus the upcoming Sherlock Holmes) are why I'm thinking I should pick up a 3 month Gamefly card. Not spectacular games but at least they're games I have an interest in playing.

 

I've been finding myself jumping back and forth between games lately. Should finish off the plat for Second Son and sell it or trade it in because if I'm being honest with myself I won't play it again.

Wow that sucks. I saw this chick Bella Thorne on some commercial and I was like oh she looks hot, so I go to the Google and it turns out she's 16.

 

Pedo, confirmed.

Everybody should buy Under Defeat HD for that price. It's an excellent and basic shmup. Make sure to change the controls in options to dual sticks. The platinum is easy also if that peaks your interest.

Never even noticed this was released. Instantly thought of Zero Gunner when I saw it.

 

Been playing a lot of Jamestown over the weekend with a friend so this might be a good reason to hook the PS3 back up to have a different shooter option.

Just admit that if you took the D2 system and put it in the D1 map you would have zero reasons to complain about the additions made in D2.

 

I mean shit, you're complaining about the addition of a class based system? Complain about 90% of the skills being useless (or only leveled up for synergies later on) but to complain about them trying to give you a more unique experience when you change classes rather than just a palette swap is madness.

I picked the big warrior guy. Only lvl 2, just started, but yea I think Ill have it figured it out. Now that I have some companions, I assume I'll be able to give them equipment too?

Companions receive no equipment from you and they don't level up. Their equipment will break (especially later on when you can do longer, continuous runs) at which point you part ways with them since they'll be useless. Keep in mind that you'll constantly be replenishing your supply of allies and equipment so don't get attached to anything and only spend money on the highest ranked equipment (don't worry about future characters, they'll find plenty of stuff when you use them) and highest level allies.

 

You probably won't be in danger of running out of money but it helps in terms of quickly weeding out what will likely be unworthy equipment so you don't get stuck spending all your gaming time in the menus. No use agonizing over an equipment decision in the early going if it's going to be outclassed by something you find in your next run.

Dreamfall Chapters is a PS4 console exclusive.

Happy that it's coming at all. Going to have to go back and replay the original games.

 

I would be thrilled to see the PS4 become the go to place for adventure titles.

Yeah, I think I'll just stick with the white one too.  I'll get more enjoyment out of it in the long run.

This is how he picks his NBA fantasy team.

 

And why he always loses.

PS4 controller for $35 at Rakuten with the code SAVE15.

 

Now, am I vein enough to spend an extra $20 on the one I preordered from Amazon just because it's white?

I know I am.

 

But I'll get blue because I'm not racist. (But really because the white one looks weird with the big, contrasting touchpad.)

But they shovel my walk and keep the pool clean.

 

(and yeah, that Simpsons scene was exactly what I was going for.  Good job.  But this was also my inner monologue when deciding to buy the place.  Going back and forth because $201 is a shit-ton of money but they do do a lot of stuff that I like.  Also helped that my twinhome was about $30K cheaper than most decent houses in the same area so I could afford to put 20% down on the place which was my goal.  But yeah, that $201 is really gonna sting when I don't have a mortgage any more and I'll start questioning why the Fuck I'm paying it.  For now I just consider it part of the mortgage.)

Except HOAs generally cover sewage, trash, some utilities, general maintenance, upkeep on your roof, etc. You'd be paying somebody even when your mortgage gets paid off.

Once thing I notice about Coke vs Pepsi people is that Pepsi people (like me) tend to be a bit more relaxed and open minded when ordering a soda (if I order a soda at a restaurant, I'll just ask for a coke and not care if it's Pepsi or Coke or whatever). Coke people tend to be the types who won't even go to a restaurant if they know that they serve Coke (never heard of the reverse). Coke people should just chill out.

 

Pepsi deserves credit for doing stuff like the real sugar Pepsi they have in stores now (no having to look for Passover Coke or Mexican Coke if you're anti-HFCS) and for a while they were also doing an all natural Pepsi that would use caramel and apple juice for flavor and coloring. That was a cool idea and it's a shame it didn't last very long. Good on them for trying new things.

 

But I can't seem to tolerate more caffeine in a day than I get in a cup or two of coffee so I don't drink much soda these days.

 

PS: Rum and sprite is where it's at, however.




#12000677 Tony Stewart runs driver over, driver dead on arrival at hospital. RIP Kevin...

What a bunch of bullshit sensationalized by the media. The proper headline should be "Man walks in front of race car, wins Darwin award". But because a well known driver is involved they know they can drum up some nonsense opinion pieces and racy headlines and watch all the comments roll in from the armchair drivers. The only quotes these "reporters" will give you are the ones that further the story in the direction that makes the most money.

 

They couldn't even be bothered to do basic fact checking when they were falling over themselves trying to claim the the guy was 17 years old because that's what it said in an obviously out of date bio on the guy's website. (Two sentences before the line that could have told them that his age would have to be closer to 20).

I recommend reading the manga (yes, I know 70+ volumes is a lot) and not watching the anime, as anime adaptations of shonen manga tend to be far inferior to the source material.

The Alabasta Arc (especially the fight with Crocodile) was totally worth watching, though.

 

I've been going back and watching it but I skip the filler arcs.
