Unrelated but man the Bookmark website for Mario Maker is extremely useful. In a sense that now even a backlogged game of mine has it's own inner backlog.

Thanks! I'm assuming the '0 0' means those games net 0 coins total, right?

Has anyone cashed in a download reward on the list and got a survey from it? I'm torn between wonderful 101 or a few of the 3DS downloads.

Dunno if it's been mentioned before but The Monday Night War series on the Network is definitely worth a watch; even if it can be a bit heavy-handed on the revisionist history.

I renewed the Network days before the Rumble on a lark after binge listening to the Attitude Era podcast (which is very humorous and worth a listen). The idea was to start with Suvivor Series 99 and watch all the WWF PPVs all the way through to WM17; where my love of wrestling (and the product itself) started to die.

I gave up watching full PPVs at Armageddon '99. Turns out, the 98-99 years kinda sucked. However I still stand by my belief that 2000 is probably the best year in WWF history. The talent pool was absolutely stacked, with the mid card being dominated by Benoit Vs Jericho and the main event being stacked with HHH, Angle, Rock all in their absolute primes. Even the tag division was awesome with Dudleys, E&C, Hardy's, Too Cool, RTC, APA giving us plenty of good matches.

At least, that's how my rose-tinted mind remembers it. I'm dead set on running through that era before I drop the network again. Money can be tight and honestly? My diehard love of Pro Wrestling died years ago (probably about the same time Benoit did. But every WM season I get the itch to actively watch and follow all the hub bub.

These are pretty much the last good Sonic games (ever?)

So tempting.

I said this earlier in the year, but I would have still rather seen Lesnar (w/ HHH) Vs DBry in the main event. Big missed opportunity there. Or maybe just a dream match I'll never see :-/

Idk why people harp on Dbry being champion, the whole "people would be hot for him while he's chasing it, but what happens when he wins?" Why not just put him in the Cena role from his first WWE title run. Just have Bry face down a different monster. He's perfect for the underdog, defy-all-odds role. Even more so than Cena, due to his Superman-like appearance or have someone like Bray win it off him and then chase him all over again. The build is already there, as Bry lost their first encounter. Could be a sweet program and I'm pretty sure both are pretty much ready to explode popularity-wise. Too bad "what's best for business" is milking nostalgia and helping out best friends.

I've been watching nothing but NXT and 93' era Raw on WWE Network and I feel like that's worth the $10 a month right there. It's also pretty interesting how similar both shows are. I'm sure that's a contributing reason why so many smarks love NXT. It feels like the old days of wrestling, with it's brevity, gimmicks and equal parts squash matches and good ole fashion rasslin.

The TNA live event in Cape Girardeau, Missouri started last night with a TNA agent coming out and announcing that Chris Sabin, Garett Bischoff, Jay Bradley, Wes Brisco, Gail Kim and Miss Tessmacher would not be allowed to compete by the Missouri Athletic Commission because they did not have licenses to wrestle.

Around 500 fans were in attendance for the 90 minute show. The card featured just 5 matches and 3 of those 5 featured the same four wrestlers. Quick results look like this:

* Bully Ray beat James Storm
* Devon beat Gunner
* Samoa Joe beat Bobby Roode
* Gunner and James Storm beat Ray and Devon
* Jeff Hardy beat Kurt Angle

TNA officials tried to make up for the problems by inviting all fans backstage after the show to meet wrestlers for free. However, Jeff Hardy charged $20 for a photo and fans could not get his autograph. This led to some of the people that paid $65 for VIP tickets.


When they write the book on the death of TNA, I hope they include a chapter on this night.
