  1. Look out everyone, EA is trying to win you back after the Battlefront debacle.
  2. Yeah what's this Loki was ruined shit? Dude was great in every movie he was in? Mike I wish I could understand you but I'm also glad I don't.
  3. The Avengers Spider-Man: Homecoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier Captain America: Civil War Infinity War Thor: Ragnarok Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Guardians of the Galaxy Iron Man Ant-Man Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Panther Iron Man 3 Captain America: The First Avenger Doctor Strange Iron Man 2 The Incredible Hulk Thor Thor: The Dark World Pretty much as anticipated for me though BP ended up a little lower than I'd have expected, I'd push it about three slots higher I think. Otherwise, pretty solid, top five is definitely accurate.
  4. Their entire last album is aces, Lucas. One of my faves last year. So excited they're back already.
  5. And looks like predictably Activision will be the first AAA dev to dip their toe into the battle royale pool.
  6. Pretty great Bryan segment tonight for the haters of what went down last week.
  7. Great song from some newcomers
  8. I mean you're being a bit hard on Carmella. She might be the worst worker on Smackdown (though I'd take Naomi personally) but only because their talent pool is so deep, and she definitely held her own with Charlotte at Backlash. Moreso, much like Alexa Bliss, Carmella's character is so good that she deserves better than a comparison to Nia Jax's after-school-special gimmick.
  9. Ya Tony Stark doesn't know Peter Parker is coming back so the deaths still have an impact if you actually have any empathy for the characters in the universe.
  10. Absolutely give 'em a listen. They're not gonna be for everyone here but they've written some of my fave songs of the last ten years. Give Midnight Organ Fight a spin.
  11. https://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2018/05/11/610352131/frightened-rabbit-singer-scott-hutchison-found-dead-at-36 Terrible news, great writer and singer.
  12. They've seen a brief resurgence usually to kill time with NXT call-ups or other reworked talents. Braun obviously played the fun jobber game for a while. NXT tends to do it way more than the main roster, in part because they're pressed for time. I imagine most of the reason Raw especially strays from it is when you have three hours to kill it's easier to let Seth and whoever go for ten minutes because that's a whole segment you don't have to fill.
  13. NXT is a one hour program with a lot less space to fill. It's harder to justify and figure out leaving off top talents in two or god forbid three hour weekly shows. And again, I'm confident Daniel wants to wrestle as much as possible and wouldn't be okay with occasional PPV matches and only squashes on TV.
  14. It may not mean anything long term for Rusev but if the intent is just to make him a potential MITB winner for the next five weeks than they've done it. I'm not grading anyone on any curves. It's simple, effective storytelling. They made a random PPV beatdown mean something and gave it episode to episode consequences. They're not reinventing the wheel but that's literally just sensible booking. The idea of keeping Bryan special by never having him compete is a nice one but it was never going to happen. No promotion in the world would sit on Dbry like that and I think it's clear he wants to compete as much as possible too.
  15. The best way to make a mid-carder not a mid-carder is to give him credible wins. Much like how they made us believe Cass could beat Bryan by pushing him hard fresh off his injury, they're now building Rusev as a credible MITB threat by having him beat Bryan. Here's the thing dudes, Bryan is M A D E. He's in John Cena territory, whether you believe it or not. He's a former world champ who once beat Triple H, Batista, and Randy Orton in the same night, his credibility will never be in question. He basically squashed Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in his comeback match. He's almost always gonna be over as fuck, and if there's ever doubt that he's a main eventer, they have him tap out Big Cass in like five minutes. This isn't gonna *hurt* Daniel Bryan AT ALL, and I think you're jumping off a bridge over nothing when this was a win-win situation. Rusev looks better, Bryan's not hurt at all, I guarantee it.
