3874 - Smackdown 11-13-2018: Daniel Bryan Danielson Is Champion Again...

Not going into super heavy detail for this one, but I just wanted to address a couple key points here and be on my way. Yes, I'm a little late to the party, but what else is new?

3873 - Sooner Than Expected...

So for those wondering, it's got a few design sketches, some screenshots, some behind the scenes photos for the MMPR years, and lots of promotional imagery that we've seen plenty of times over the years. It's not the deepest historical retrospective and it's not quite the "tell-all" or "down and dirty" reference book that will reveal anything that hasn't already been said before, but for a general overview on the history of the franchise and some choice design material to see how it came, it's a cool little thing to check out that's meaty enough to give each entry in the franchise a little bit to shine.

This is my bedtime read, by the way.

3872 - Pokemon Puzzle League (N64)

3871 - More On Marathon Man

So, I announced that I'm going to be launching a new Mega Man Maker account under the Marathon Man name this coming Sunday. This account name will feature significantly longer levels that will vary in terms of challenge.  Two levels will debut this Sunday, with the hopes of producing one per month. For the most part, they remain relatively traditional fare much like the regular DTM branded levels, only they will be much longer. As usual, videos will be posted of each level to give players an idea as well as some spoilage for passing the level.

Speaking of which, I do have some levels that I planned to upload to the original account, including one that I intended on replacing since I updated the level with new graphics thanks to the recent 1.4 update. A part of me wants to hold off until the 1.5 upload, but there's a couple levels that I wouldn't mind getting out of the way now since they're not too reliant on missing assets needing to be replaced.

That's it for now. Bye.

3870 - WCW Uncensored 97

Uncensored 97 places us in the height of the New World Order era of WCW, which saw the promotion's Monday Nitro program trump WWF Raw week in and week out. Uncensored '97 is a rather significant event in the overall narrative of the WCW vs. nWo story, but is it a good show otherwise?

Let's find out.

3869 - Razor's Tribute To Stan Lee

Because nothing I can say can truly cover the scope of the man's amazing life.

There will never be another Stan Lee.


3868 - Another Non-Gordon Quotable

You know... if I had the old website from a decade ago, this would be one of my bottom banners.

But then again, I don't know if I'd be this "original" or "fresh."

3867 - Word To The Wise

Another food item on the list of things that make me sick, Definitely chimi-chucking-it in the bin.

3866 - A Section 31 Show?

Sums up my thoughts here just fine, methinks.

A show about Section 31, no matter who's in the center seat, doesn't resonate with me much in the slightest. I think I'll stick with (Pi)Card Talk.


3865 - Ordered The Visual Book Thing

Never had one of these things before (the publisher has made a bunch of these apparently), so I don't know the general gist of what to expect beyond a bunch of pictures and some behind the scenes tidbits. I'd imagine this would be a neat little thing to have in the bookshelf.

3864 - Pokemon Puzzle Challenge (GBC)

The next review should be up tomorrow or Tuesday... then SHARED REVIEWS FOR EVERYONE!

3863 - An Announcement Is Coming This Week...

So I've got a couple announcements to finalize regarding future material... and the reason for the lack of promised material this weekend relates to said announcements. Said announcements relates to Sundays and the month of December.

That is all I'm saying. Tune in this week.

3862 - Mega Man Maker v1.4.2.1 - Bosses

All the bosses of Mega Man Maker as of version

Nothing special here; just the same level with the boss switched around for each of the twenty-seven boss fights featured on this video.

3861 - Classic Wrestling Musings Done Up Until April 2019

So in another bit of good news on the backlog front, I've pretty much finished all the weekly Classic Wrestling Musings for the next several months. We've got stuff going on up until the end of April and I couldn't be happier to get that out of the way.

I've tried to go for a varied selection of choices; at the moment, we're doing WCW Uncensored until early-December. Then it's AWA Super Sunday, followed by ECW Massacre On 34th Street. From then and throughout January, we have select Royal Rambles to cover. Then February will see the final three WCW PPVs covered and finish off with the Wrestlerock Rumble.

March will then see WWF Fully Loaded 2000, WCW Capital Carnage 1990 (the one with FUCKING ROBOCOP!), both ECW One Night Stand shows from 2005 and 2006, and then we dive into April with a random assortment of choices.

So that's that. Unless something worthwhile pops up that's worth talking about, I think the wrestling talk is going to be kept to a minimum for the foreseeable future. I'm not quite sure if I'm even going to talk about next week's Survivor Series show, let alone watch it.

3860 - DTM-Cast Schedule

So the next four (yes, FOUR) DTM-Casts have been scheduled for the remainder of 2018. I'd expect these episodes to clock in at under an hour, though I suspect the two Year-End shows will be a different matter.

Episode 79 will be uploaded on November 18, 2018 and will coincide with the launch of the Marathonman account on Mega Man Maker. The episode will be short and mostly talk about launching the new account as well as plans for the rest of the DTM666 MMM page being filled out.

Episode 80 will be uploaded on Sunday, December 9th, 2018 and will likely be a quick Q&A catch-up show unless something interesting comes up.

Episode 81 will be uploaded on Sunday, December 23rd, 2018 and will be a reprisal of the Winners And Losers Of 2017. Since an episode wasn't released last year, we might as well fill the gap with a reprisal of sorts and even reflect on some of the choices.

And then Episode 82 will debut on Monday, December 31st, 2018 and will cover the Winners And Losers Of 2018. Some hints will be dropped in the reprise show, so look forward to that.

That's the plan for the DTM-Cast. As far as 2019 is concerned... stay tuned.
