Good to have you back.  Undertaker gif would have been appropriate as well.  Also Shane is #2 when it comes to selling the Stunner with The Rock being #1.

Your eye for the subtlety of what truly makes a real American “stunner seller” is astute, and I found equally if not funnier, than the gif... indeed [correct me if you think I’m wrong but ] during the rocks transition from the “MiaVia look” to his complete becoming of the rock, that man was not only perhaps the best technician in the WWF, (again at that time , HHH was actually pushing the envelope as well , but that’s another topic) he was THE QUINTESSENTIAL stone cold complement...I think I saw him once have a seizure, LITERALLY, before during and aftrer he was stunned, that was not in the script , I’m sure (lol jk I didn’t see that but the dude did tremor like his neck snapped better than MJ fox, and I don’t even like the MJf jokes as I have Neuro ailment lol)

Shane also looked like he never quite recovers after being stunned .....like he looked more and more unhealthy following each application by stone cold

But good call dude, your post amused the shit outta me, brought back so much laughter from my childhood, and sadness, that marked the beginnings of the end , (around that time, post WCW)

Btw does anyone find it odd that the biggest selling console (that no one could find until Christmas), gets NO sales whatsoever , like this week it’s not even mentioned that is there, let alone an accessory or even a card or shitty game.....idk

I’m all about this switch now but I want some sales Nintendo

Something is selling well so they don't offer deals on it? What doesn't make sense about that?

As someone who works at a Bestbuy I'm just going to warn you that Nintendo stuff just about never goes on sale for their home consoles. You'll get random third party games all the time like azure striker gunvolt (which sells out so that's good) but first party games and the console itself won't go on sale for quite some time. Only reason the Wii u got deals was because it tanked. The switch is selling too well to justify putting it on sale from a business standpoint.

Even then the Wii U didn't get sales very often at Best Buy especially on first-party games.

First party games just don't they know people will buy them regardless. When they do once in a blue moon go on sale we sell out so fast because people have been waiting even for like $10 off.

You're right; that is crazy! Do you have photographic evidence of your trip to the future? Or is it just a picture of you rooting around in your ass to pull something out?

You seem to be confused. I'll lay it out for you.

1) My original post in question predicted that $30 4k remakes of old movies will be $7 within the year.

2) your trolly sarcastic response was "omg you mean things drop in price as they get older? please tell me more."

3) my response to that was, essentially, that a hypothetical $23 off of $30 is a huge discount within just one year of release. As I said, that isn't some normal occurrence as you implied it to be.

And that's where we are now. You seem to be confused between hypothetical and concrete discussions.

Good luck with that strawman debate strategy.

I was going to wait on Monster Hunter World (since I'll be up to my ass in DBFZ) and hope for a minor sale before my GCU runs out in mid-March.  But now I find out there's a steelbook with pre-order.

 

What are the odds that MHW would go on sale before March 18th?

Bestbuy just updated my God of War release date for Friday April 20th. There had been a placeholder of 6/30/18 prior.

This is a legacy order from the Visa Checkout promo January of 2017.

Great observations.  Critics say that the Rock oversold finishers, but I definitely disagree.  He was excellent at selling the Pedigree and other finishers.

Absolutely, since I invoked HHHs name i don’t feel like it was me to push the idea, but so glad you said that lol :D

I was going to add just that, the only other guy who was willing to sacrifice (and he did one day when he lost the use of his leg for almost a year and almost considered the inevitability or retirement, almost very similarly to stone cold , [his neck and knees]) TO SELL THE SHOW. I used the think the game was a pompous self aggrandized , laughable nickname....now I respect his choice in the name addition-change more than HHH from hunter Hearst Helmsley ...but both Miavia and Helmsley truly evolved with the times and adapted well to their life paths

HHH and the Rock we’re the true masters of the square circle. They were amazing athletes , incredible showmen, talented and FUNNY actors which is a large part of the experience and sport, *smart businessmen and ultimately they both decided their own fate as they wanted - HHH married or infused his soul into wrestling and Dwayne used it as a platform to evolve into everything else, including a nice acting career. Seems like a sweet guy too, cares for the kids a lot.

I know that gif took us OT but who cares, it’s a weekly ad

* case in counterpoint, look at the Flock, raven, Saturn, Kidman, Benoit ( or malenko) etc .... maybe the best technical wrestlers on earth in one faction......and man did they suck, all that talent useless because no one could talk on the mic....oddly, not one of them could , like it was one worse than the other, at one point I thought Saturn had brain damage lol

The reason why the Rock specifically oversold the Stunner was that it as a long running inside joke between Austin and the Rock. Some of the most memorable ones include his legs going over his head after bouncing off the apron due to the sheer impact of selling the finisher. It's somewhere on YouTube.

Both games are good but very different. I prefer the pro controller to the joy cons for most games. Arms is better with joy cons.

absolutely completely purposeful overselling....did u not see the seizure comment lol. It was a lot of runnin jokes, I mean HHH and the rock were almost doing stand up routines switch hitting weekly on raw intros ca.1998-2000 lol
(That was the nation vs DX, when HHH came out dressed as the rock , I literally Died)

That’s an easy choice in my opinion. I personally think ARMS is trash while Mario is fan-freaking-tastic.

Super Mario Odyssey.  1. It's arguably the best game on the Switch and better than Arms.  2. Arms no longer will release content.  3. Arms is more likely to get a price drop than Odyssey.  If you purchase Odyssey, see if the Best Buy has any more of those promotional Odyssey coins that they gave out for free.  It's available on the Best Buy website.

Yes.  There is a clip where you can see Austin smiling/chuckling before going for the pin after he sees the Rock flip over and bounce off the ropes after getting a stunner.  The Rock made his opponent's finisher look legit and was willing to lose clean unlike some primadonnas.

Screw it, pre-ordered.  Let my wallet rue the day they decided to release both MHW and DBFZ.

There's a lot of compilations (reddit, youtube) of The Rock getting stunner'd so it was easy to find this gif. Don't know if you can see Austin laughing due to the quality, but it was very evident from a video clip I saw.  ARMS is a fun game and Nintendo games hold their value very well.  Nintendo is just not releasing any more characters or content, but the game now is way more loaded than when it originally released.

Anytime I think of overselling, I have to think of Hogan/Michaels. (Sorry for the continued OT)
