3934 - Mega Man Maker: Long Wily Challenge (Raw Recording)

A playthrough of Mega Man Maker's long Wily Challenge, where I play through 20+ levels of randomly chosen genius. There are some skipped levels that I couldn't be bothered to figure out, but for the most part, it's a solid play.

Sidenote: This is the first video I rendered with Vegas 15. Looks okay, but I'm worried about the less than HD stuff.

3933 - Corbin's RAW IS LOW


So the past couple weeks saw Baron Corbin's RAW sink the show to new lows in the ratings and last Monday's show began with a segment which saw top star and reigning IC champ complain about how much RAW has been sucking as of late.

Turns out telling people outright that the show sucks is NOT a formula for suck-cess and thus ratings continue to drop.

I have not been watching the show, but I've heard horrible things about the show; most of it revolving around the increased presence of one Baron Corbin. I'd hate to knock the guy because he's just doing what he's told, but honestly, it's getting to the point where he's becoming the male equivalent of Stephanie McMahon; somebody that prompts me to change the channel and never look back. Fortunately, I haven't watched the show in ages and only follow through recaps, so I think I'm alright.

3932 - AWA Super Sunday (April 1983)

Time for something a little bit different.

Originally airing on April 23, 1983, it's the American Wrestling Association's Super Sunday extravaganza. I'm watching this on the WWE Network and while an old AWA stadium event wouldn't be enticing to me normally, this show does contain a rather famous match that has tide shifting potential.

3931 - An Update On The Video Front

Because those are fun...

Sadly, things have been moving slowly due to lack of time... and I have to admit to falling behind schedule due to a variety of emergencies taking place all at once. This also, unfortunately, required a bit of reshuffling in terms of upcoming video projects.

For now, the Youtube DTM Rambles is getting the recent reviews up and should be "up to date" by the end of the week. The end of the week should see reviews of Tempest 4000 and Mega Man: The Wily Wars up and running, as well as DTM Rambles #19: Playstation Old Stuff. On top of that, I'd expect another DTM Rambles video up before the year's end, at which point I'm going to start putting together some generic videos to put up whenever I need it.

Sunday Gimmick Table #3: uDraw Tablet for Wii will be up on schedule, though will probably see a morning upload as opposed to the 12:30 AM late night start. After those come to pass, we'll see what happens next.

As for the rest... well, won't jump the gun yet... but once things pick up here, we'll be on our way.

3930 - So Impact Wrestling Is Putting Up Old Shows On Their Youtube Channel

To celebrate their Youtube channel getting 2 million subscribers, Impact Wrestling will be uploading a couple full shows onto said channel.

Yesterday, they put up the very first NWA-TNA PPV. I wrote those on that show ages ago here.

Tomorrow, they put up the December 20, 2007 episode of TNA Impact.

And then on Friday, they put up Bound For Glory 2012.

Well, good for them, I suppose. I guess I'll be checking those shows out eventually.

3929 - Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Trailer... Well, That's More Like It

Well, it's about damn time.

3927 - Next Sunday's Gimmick Table Offering...

I never said that all these gimmicks would be new... just that they'd be gimmicks.

Fun fact: Former THQ head Jason Rubin once cited the uDraw as a "massive mistake" and one of many reasons why THQ went out of business. Should be an interesting piece of business, but is it really that bad?

Let's find out next week, shall we?

By the way, there's no video Monday. I've got an appointment during the day, work at night, and not much else in terms of free time. We'll resume the video stuff on Tuesday or Wednesday.

3926 - Street Fighter V Will Now Include In-Game ADS!


So Street Fighter V is an interesting beast. Released back in 2016 in a half-finished state, receiving lukewarm reception, and taking close to two years to implement a goddamn Arcade Mode that had been standard in past Street Fighter games as well as any fighting game worth their weight in gold. And just when we finally got Street Fighter V up to respectable levels, Capcom is now going to introduce ads that you have to sit through if you want to unlock certain bits of tat.

In all honesty, I've not played much Street Fighter V even with the Arcade Edition upgrade. My interest waned quickly and really, once the Street Fighter 30th came along, SF5 was just a thing taking up hard drive space before I uninstalled the fucker. But with all that having been said, the fact that Capcom wants to implement ads in a game you paid full price for is yet another means of the bloated games industry trying to ruin the modern gaming scene.

Naturally, the pro players who make money off this shit as well as the diehard fans who will buy any pile of crap with the Street Fighter name on it will defend this practice and even praise Capcom, but for the sensible folks out there, you pay a premium on certain free-to-play mobile games to REMOVE the ads, not add more of the fucking things.

Let's hope this sort of practice doesn't leak into other Capcom games. I very much like to run through Mega Man 11 without being interrupted by stupid ads for Amway.

3925 - Wrestler Theme Songs With Christmas Lyrics (Bryan And Vinny Sampler)

"Is there a chance Vimeo shuts us down for that one right there"

The whole show is tremendous, by the way.

3924 - Sunday Gimmick Table #2: Tetris LED Game Thing

We look at a Tetris mini-arcade thing that lights up and makes horrible noises. But does it play well?

3923 - The Game Awards In One Image...

The whole show can join all those dead women in that fridge.

But then again, I don't watch the stupid thing, so...

A family emergency has cut short a string of updates and so how does the rest of the month play out? This episode will briefly explain before resorting a "Best Of" format, compiling four audio bits.
