1993 - Old Star Trek: Enterprise - Season 3 Predictions

Star Trek: Enterprise was sort of a polarizing series in its initial outing. Although the prospect of a series taking place prior to established Trek lore was somewhat interesting, the series never really took advantage of it. Despite some decent episodes, the majority of the first two seasons was relegated to the first Starship Enterprise visiting the planet of the week as if it were any ol' Star Trek show, but now had more contemporary language and naughty words. It certainly didn't help that the show not only added a needlessly and confusing Temporal Cold War gimmick to "futurize" the 22nd century or make the Vulcans come off as total dicks, but also introduced Ferengi and Borg into the mix long before they had any business in showing up.

Things started to pick up in the third season with the Xindi arc, but it seemed like the show's best material happened in its fourth and final season, when it was starting to build on the premise it was founded on. It was too little, too late, however, as Star Trek: Enterprise was eventually cancelled due to dwindling ratings, bringing an end to an era of Star Trek that had been around since the premiere of the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987.

The following list was written sometime in 2003 (?), possibly following the airing of the Season 2 finale, The Expanse, which was the launching point of Enterprise's new season-long story-arc. It served as something of a joke predictions of what crazy stuff might show up on the show and how much continuity will get raped this time around. Fortunately, none of this came to pass (well, except for one episode where Trip did get to captain Enterprise in an alternate timeline) and season 3 turned out better than expected.

I don't recall if this had ever been posted, but if not, here it is again for the first time.

1992 - Good Lord, That Was Worthless...

John Cena overcame the odds, making his match with Brock Lesnar at Summerslam a title affair. Try and act surprised when that gets announced tomorrow.

Miz is IC champion, even though there's no reason for him to exist anymore. Seriously, is there any appeal to the guy that makes WWE think we should care about him even though his best days have long since evaporated.

Rollins vs Ambrose didn't happen because this was a "not special enough" special event... although to be fair, it just means a potentially bigger platform for them to feud on.

AJ retains the Divas title in a match so embarrassingly awful that it makes Sharmell vs. Jenna Morasca seem like Flair vs Steamboat in comparison.

Has any considered that the reason the WWE Network isn't doing so hot (among other reasons I wouldn't mind touching on in the future) is because nobody gives a rat's ass about the current product? And as such, it's not much of an incentive to sign up for?

Why does this show exist again?

Don't look at me; I'm not American.

1988 - Fun With Outrun (GG)



Some gameplay of Outrun for Game Gear; I'm playing the Vs. Computer mode where it's an actual race to the finish rather than the standard driving. (Spoiler: I lost. No surprise there.)

I've been experimenting with trying to record gameplay on a Game Gear with camcorder for the purposes of authenticity when it comes to the video review stuff. The quality is passable for the most part, but it'd get to a point where I would constantly fidget about and the screen would end up bouncing all over the play in shot... and that's when I said, "Forget it. If I need footage for non-GB or PSP portables, I just use the appropriate emulator instead."

My ClassicGameRoom.com profile for those who care can be found here.

Nothing of note, thus far, but I've been updating the collection onto the page, so...

Constant work in progress, of course...
