Blog Slappybob > My thoughts on Wrestlemania XXVIII

Posted 07 April 2012

Wrestlemania this year was solid proof of most of whats wrong with the WWE today.

Dark match: Primo and Epico (with Rosa Mendes) defeated Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd and The Usos (Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso) - First of all why have a championship match as a dark match? I know the WWE doesnt give a shit about tag teams now, but if you are going to put them i...

Blog Slappybob > Can a buggy game be a great game?

Posted 29 April 2011

I have been having this argument for months now with my brother in law, but can a buggy game be considered a great game?

This is of course related to Fallout: New Vegas. I was very excited when this game came out having played Fallout 3 and 4 of the 5 DLC for it. I had some bug issues with Fallout 3 (getting stuck on scenery, creatures flying off for no reason) but nothing game crippling more like minor issue that all games have at some time. However with New Vegas(NV) there have been so many bugs that have just crippled the game or caused me to restart a character. My question is how does this game get so much praise despite these issues? I have told friends who have asked my opinion that the game is good and there were improvements made, but that the bugs crippling the game cause me not to say its a great game.

My brother in law's argument is that if they fix all the major issues would i call it a great game then?
His example is Mass Effect which he said was very buggy when it came out. However when I played it a year later I had no issues and have it listed as one of my top 5 games of all time.

I have also had issues with reviewers who for some reason mention the bugs in like a sentence or 2, but still call NV Game of the Year.
Personally I don't see how you can call a game that breaks down so many times a great game.
Any thoughts?

Blog Slappybob > Does Netflix hate anime?

Posted 15 April 2011

I have been a loyal member of Netflix for over 3 years now and I have to wonder if they hate the Anime Genre. More then half the series in my queue are pointless to try to get because one or two of the disc in it are unavailable. And these are not old out of print series either. Some are new and all are available to purchase online and in stores. So I can not see any reason for Netflix not to stock up on a genre that has i would guess millions of fans. Now i have no proof on the number it might just be in the hundreds of thousands, but even then there is enough there to build a market on.

Now they do have some series in the instant queue, but those are english dubs only and myself i prefer japanese with english subtitles. Sorry but Viz killed me with their awful dubbing.

Here is a list of series i want to watch but am unable to:
Elfen Lied
Magic Users Club
Original Dirty Pair
Gall Force
Please Teacher!
Otogi Zoshi
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Battle Skipper
Fushyugi Yuugi: Eikoden
The Slayers: Revolution (available on instant but not disc)

This is just a few series but I am sure there are more out there. Someway Netflix needs to know that there is a market out there for anime fans and that they could get more subscribers if they would just reach out and offer us more selection and availability.
