Giving a speech you want to give, having the crowd going nuts for you, followed by your attractive wife joining you in the ring to hug you is a pretty ideal retirement scenario for a wrestler that has to go out without a "final match" sendoff.

So my wife saw me watching some botchamanias last night and thought they were funny. Do you guys have any specific submissions that stand out or recommend for viewing? It's hit or miss sometimes for us so I thought I'd try to turn her onto the wrestling stuff more with some of the better videos. TIA

The Steiner Botchamania collection is pretty solid, if I'm understanding what you're looking for correctly.

From the other thread that people shouldn't be using anymore, TTT2 works with a workaround:

 

David Hibiki:

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 works as well but requires a bit of work around. You need to follow someone who has played it and check their followers. You can use me: David Hibiki, and look at who I'm following and you should find Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Meh, I think it's one iteration behind so not a big deal.
OP, if you can Wikify the second post this can be a community effort!

Can't do that on non OPs, but I actually meant to do it on the first one anyway.

If anyone edits the list with new stuff please keep it in the new stuff at the top/bolded setup.

Depending on how this goes I may add performance notes in the reserved post (ie "Reach performance suuuucks" / "Reach is kind of fixed now") if anyone wants to report on stuff.

I'll update the list below once or twice a month but keep in mind the current list can always be found right here:
http://majornelson.c...d-compatibility

------

VOTE on games you want to see backwards compatible here:

https://xbox.uservoi...s-compatibility

------
Games on disc you can put in your XBone, it'll download/install automatically. Any XBLA/Games on Demand should just show up in your games library list.

Note that of Jan 2016, MS has done away with specific release dates for batches of backwards compatible games. Games will now just be released as they become ready.

------

Similar to the 360 install sizes thread, I'l try to color code stuff for a quick n dirty performance review. Text-based performance information will be collected in the second post in this thread. NOTE - also adding * asterisk marks, as Tapatalk users can't see color coding.

 

Green or * - No significant issues. You can play this on the X1 and get a reasonably comparable experience to playing it on the 360. Some games may even run better than on the 360.

Blue or ** - Some performance issues, but still enjoyable, especially if you only have an X1.

Yellow or *** - Significant problems. Avoid unless you're desperate to play it and don't have a 360.

Red or **** - Significant problems. Lots of them. Don't bother, you're not going to have an enjoyable experience.

Looks like they realized a lot of people had Gears 1 / 3 / Judgement and decided to burn a month throwing out Gears 2.

 

Pretty weak offerings. I suppose Rocket League will help me take my mind off them once it's out.

I'm also doing the chronological Nitro thing...at least through Hall's debut, at which point I may jump off. Getting close now, up to March '96. The biggest surprise to me from going through all of this? Lex Luger was awesome during this period. He's basically a freakishly built monster that is also a total pussy, and a sleazebag idiot. Watching him play dumb whenever anyone questions his morals is hilarious. One of my favorite rasslin' exchanges ever is something I just discovered from this period:

 

Luger (after blindly accepting a street fight with LoD on Sting's behalf): I'm from Chicago, but I don't know what a Chicago Street Fight is.

 

Sting: What?!

 

Luger (in full "duh" mode): I don't know what a Chicago Street Fight is!

 

Sting (exasperated): WHY DON'T YOU GO BOUNCE YOUR PECS IN THE MIRROR AND THINK ABOUT IT!?! ::storms off::

 

 

Not that this is anything new, but coming away from this stuff - Sting, Flair, Luger, Giant, PILLMAN, Arn, and the ECW imports are all pretty awesome. Savage is decent but seems incapable of having more than 1 match a year where he looks dominant. Dungeon of Doom is incredibly stupid, but in a (mostly) good way. Hogan  and Beefcake are fucking garbage and good lord I hate them during this period (and I'm usually not someone who is super down on Hogan). For that matter, Beefcake may be #1 on my list of worst wrestlers ever, at least among those who got a lot of tv time / push. That corny, useless fucker is TERRIBLE. The fact that Hogan is literally the only reason he's there makes it that much worse. "Ok, time to put him in the main event with me despite being nothing for the last 6 months. Ok, make the hottest chick in the company suddenly fall in love with him out of nowhere." Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck you, Brutus Beefcake.

I really wish websites would stop calling denial of service attacks as "Hacking".

That's bad, but what annnoys me more is little kids stealing each others' phones, posting a dumb picture on instagram, and then claiming they "hacked" their friend's account. There is literally zero chance of young kids growing up having any idea of what hacking actually is.

I'm about to pull the trigger on MKX. How's the single player experience? Is it filled with content like Injustice?

Yeah. It's not quite as good as MK9 but still well worth your time.
