4059 - I Have a HUGE Announcement... not really, but news regardless.

'Tis the week of HUGE announcements from the Dubya-See-Dubya front.

205 Live's HUGE announcement... is a tournament for a Cruiserweight title match at the Wrestlemania pre-show. NXT's HUGE announcement... is a tag-team tournament that ultimately means nothing in the long run aside from someone winning a trophy. Man, it's almost like Dixie Carter is running WWE all of a sudden.

But in any event, I, too, have a HUGE announcement... and it is a tournament between multiple OH FUCK OFF.

Anyway, from March 31st to April 6th - otherwise known as the week before Wrestlemania 35 - we'll have six days of wrestling game reviews. I say six and not seven because one of those days is April 1st... and you know what that means.

Not only will there be SEVEN DAYS OF RASSLIN' GAME REVIEWS... but April 8th is Review A Great Game Day... and I decided to celebrate the occasion with a review on April 8th, 2019... and the four days afterwards.

That's right, kids. Two weeks will see TWELVE GAME REVIEWS... or perhaps more?

So yeah, not quite a HUGE announcement... but still a big festive thing regardless.

Well, since I have your attention, I've got some other blog updates to inform you about.

- Tomorrow will see not only the next episode of the DTM-Cast being up and running, but also the Pixel Player overview video that will be presented under the Sunday Gimmick Table banner. I've done some rendering tests here and there and am pleased to say that the video will be uploaded on nice, semi-crisp 1080p... which means nothing on a system that outputs on cheap composite A/V cables and ripped from DVD-R. It's the thought that counts, at least.

- There will be a DTM House Show incoming next month. Whether it'd be next week or the week after is an entirely different matter, but it'll be something. I was planning on doing a quickie Robotron 64 play session, but decided that Mega Maker thing hasn't had enough love, so that'll be a show. Not sure if there will be a Mega Man Maker Wily Challenge done tonight, but we'll see.

- Power Rangers Reflections will be making its return in two weeks and will resume its bi-weekly schedule for a few months. The first entry on the docket? Time For Lightspeed, the one crossover episode between Lightspeed Rescue and Time Force. Some of these entries might adopt a slightly looser, less-detailed format.

Other than that, all is well on the blog front.

4058 - Review #645: Elmo In Grouchland (GBC)



Mike Matei not included.

4057 - Reggie Is Ready... For The Old Folk's Home

Source: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/02/reggie_fils-aime_is_retiring_after_15_notable_years_at_nintendo_of_america

So Reggie, the president of NoA and the face of 1000 internet memes, is stepping down and moving on to retirement. Apparently, years of avoiding having to answer questions of Mother 3 have finally caught up with him, prompting him to take Guile's advice about going home and being a family man. Replacing Reggie will be Doug Bowser - insert joke here - who joined up in 2015 after a stint at Electronic Arts.

Wait a minute, you mean a guy named BOWSER used to work at EA?

The fix is in, ladies and gentlemen. Nintendo is fucked for sure.

Enjoy retired life, Reggie. Thanks for the memories, the memes, and for killing everyone's hopes of a Mother 3. Now everyone can bug BOWSER for Mother 3... or 4... or whatever. Who cares?

4056 - Slideshow Movie Review - Moontrap: Target Earth (2017)

4055 - Regularly Scheduled MMPR Returns To Comics In Issue 40


And apparently, the series is jumping ahead to the White Ranger days... and we're getting another "event" comic story called "Necessary Evil." Which means it's probably an excuse to bring back that Drakkon character again. On the flip side, it's from the same fellow who's currently writing the secondary Go Go comic, which is actually quite nice.

In any event, it'll be a long wait before we get back to the title characters being advertised because the current "Grid" story is doing nothing for me right now.

4054 - Chris Hemsworth Goes From God Of Thunder To Racist Pro Rassler

Source: https://www.sescoops.com/thor-star-chris-hemsworth-to-play-hulk-hogan-in-new-biopic/

"So, Thor. I want you to give me the hammer so I can have something nice to give Pepper."

"Sorry, Stark. But that does not work for me, brother."

OR

"I snap my fingers and half the universe is gone."

"That doth not worketh for me, brother-eth."

Plenty of jokes you can go with that one.

4053 - Found An Alundra Blayze Action Figure At Walmart


Sadly, it does not come with a garbage can so you can toss the belt into it.

Maybe you need to wait for the Madusa variant to get that one.

Maybe...

4052 - France Now Recognizes Competitive Lightsabering As Sport



Source: http://www.espn.com/olympics/fencing/story/_/id/26024152/french-fencing-body-recognizes-lightsaber-dueling-sport

If there was a Darth Vader facepalm, I would use it.

I mean, come on. They're not even using actual lightsabers; they're just props that glow in the dark. Where's the limb cutting and decapitation?

4051 - WCW Greed: The Last Ever WCW Pay-Per-View


An old picture of Dr. Ashen facepalming is the perfect way to describe WCW's last-ever Pay-Per-View offering.

This is it, ladies and gentlemen. This is where it all ended for World Championship Wrestling. A week later, WCW would air its final episode of Monday Nitro and become a distant memory... aside from its name being associated with an offshoot stable for a lame "invasion" angle on WWF television.

4050 - Review #644: Wildsnake



Snakes... why did it have to be snakes?

Note for the Youtube folks; you're getting Galaxy Wars today and Wildsnakes tomorrow, with Friday's review being up on both channels on the same day... hopefully.

4049 - Welp... At Least She'll Be It In...


So D-X is going into the Hall of Fame... because of course they are.

Hey, look at it this way. It might not be the ideal set of circumstances, but those wanting to see Chyna finally get her place in the HOF will get to see it happen... even if it is part of a group and not for her own accomplishments.

On the flip side, looks like McSon-In-Law found a way to give himself a fancy ring.

4048 - The Newest Book From WWE Games


4047 - Thoughts On WWE Elimination Chamber 2019... But Only The Chamber Matches...


So in a rare feat by my standards, I actually watched a WWE PPV live. But not the whole show... instead I just sat through the two chamber matches that opened the show and skipped everything else in between. From what I've heard, the middle of the card, featuring a couple title changes and Baron Corbin beating Braun Strowman in a no-DQ match, was the drizzling shits. So once that first Chamber match was over, then I took some time editing the Pixel Player gimmick due next Sunday.

4046 - DTM Rambles #20: Playstation Old Stuff



The somewhat long-winded video regarding my thoughts on the Playstation Classic Old Stuff and why I didn't get one.
