2831 - No More Milhouse in WWE

WWE has reportedly come to terms on the release of former NXT announcer Rich "Milhouse" Brennan. We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors. On the bright side, Kevin Owens' head will probably hurt a lot less now that Milhouse isn't around to make it worse with his face or something.

Yes, this is the first wrestling-related post I've made since March. Imagine that.

2830 - No Vids This Week.

Technical difficulties (on Zippcast's side for once) prevented yesterday's scheduled upload to appear. Will try again tomorrow.

Also no videos this week. Got to take care of stuff. But there will be a couple quick write-ups.

Don't forget to pay your taxes... or Bray Wyatt's dad will come by to collect.

2829 - Any word on that Mighty No. 9 thing?

Last I heard about it, it was getting delayed - again - due to bugs in their networking features. And that was a couple months ago. Since then, not a peep.

It seems really sad that what was once touted as a successor to the dormant Mega Man franchise has become something of a joke. Somewhere along the way, the people behind Mighty No. 9 must have decided to forgo making an effort and skip to the part where the game laid dormant for years and nothing was being done with it. It's almost as though they thought a promise of a game that was reminiscent of a beloved classic (from one of the minds behind said beloved classic) would be enough to get people to give money now and ask questions later, but instead, people are second guessing the project.

This is why I'm weary of Igarashi's Bloodstained project or even the Shenmue III thing. They got the funding in a short amount of time, but one wonders if they will actually deliver their project on schedule (Bloodstained currently set for March of next year, not sure about the Shenmue one) or if it will meet the same fate as Mighty No. 9 and be delayed over and over until the end of time?

This was a random thought that popped up. I honestly don't know what made me think this up, but there you go.

2826 - Teh New Rita... Not Bad...

Swiped from some Tumblr somewhere, but no doubt swiped from some official source somewhere else. Here's your new Rita Repulsa (as played by Elizabeth Banks) from the upcoming Power Rangers reboot movie thing that's due next year.

On the one hand, I'm sort of glad they're not sticking with trying to recreate the old look of the character, which would've been a bit goofy for something that's supposed to be a little more mature and a little more expensive (for lack of a better term) than the original show. And in all honesty, she ain't that bad looking; more alien-ish than just a Japanese woman in a hokey outfit and I particularly like the color choice here... I'm guessing she'll be the Green Ranger in this flick?

(Seriously, though, that wouldn't be a bad idea and it's something that was teased in past fanfiction brainstorms years ago, but that's another story.)

On the other hand, if they're being this drastic in redesigning Rita, it does make me wonder how much of an overhaul the Rangers are going to get. But hey, so far, I'm liking what I see.

2825 - Champ Ms. Pac-Em Sampler

We do NOT talk about Wrestlemania... that's not a bad thing. That's a good thing.
