Mancer is also damn good.

Fully agreed. What really strikes me about Ol’ Mancer is his promo ability. He’s only been wrestling for three years but cuts an awesome promo.

On another note, MLW now has a new timeslot. 9 PM Saturday on beIN, with it going up on YouTube at 12 PM Sunday. beIN wants to do more live shows, and Saturday is their typical show day. Plus, it’s been getting dynamite ratings for beIN, and giving them that timeslot will help.

Fantasy Cards / Re: Tye Dillinger
« on: February 20, 2019, 03:53:54 PM »
He needs a Reversal called “The Dillinger Escape Plan”.

Hand Size: 9
Superstar Value: 1
Superstar Ability: When you play a Maneuver with the words "clothesline" or "lariat" in the title, you may discard three cards. If you do, if it is not Multi, it is considered to be Multi and High Risk. You may pack the card titled No-Sell Maneuver.

Hammerspace Ring Ropes
Backstage Area
Your cards titled "Back Body Drop" "Classic Back Body Drop", or with "clothesline" or "lariat" in the title, when played from hand, are all considered to have been played after the card titled "Irish Whip".
Whenever a maneuver titled "Back Body Drop", "Classic Back Body Drop", or with "clothesline" or "lariat" in the title is unsuccessful, you may place that maneuver under this card. During your Draw Segment, instead of drawing a card, you may place one card under this card into your hand.

Fiery Revenge
Reversal: Special
Can only be played after a successfully played Maneuver. Blank that Maneuver's text and damage, overturn 5 cards, and end your opponent's turn. During your next turn, if your first card played is an Incineroar-specific non-Trademark Finisher Maneuver, it is +5D, Multi, and considered to be a Trademark Finisher.

Burning Wizard Kick
Can only be played after a successfully played Maneuver or as a Counter. If played as a Counter, if you ended your opponent's previous turn by reversing their Maneuver with the card titled "No Sell Maneuver", can only be reversed by cards of D:6 or greater.

Darkness Lariat
Strike + Strike
Cannot be modified with Incineroar's Superstar Ability. Cannot be reversed by cards with "completely reverse" in the text. After damage has been applied, if this card has not been reversed, you may choose to discard any number of cards in your hand. For each card discarded, your opponent overturns two cards.

The Pokemon You Love To Hate
Pre-Match Event
Can be played during any Pre-Match Phase. This card's text may not be blanked and does not take a slot in your Pre-Match capacity. Once during each of your turns, you may discard one card to search your Arsenal for one Heel or Fan Favorite Action, reveal it to your opponent, put it in your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal. Whenever you successfully play a Heel or Fan Favorite Action, you may shuffle one card from your Ringside into your Ring, draw one card, and you are considered to have played no cards this turn for your opponent's cards and effects.

Flying Cross Chop
Strike + High Risk/Reversal: Special
As a Maneuver, can only be played as a Counter or after the card titled From The Top Rope. As a Reversal, completely reverse any High Risk Maneuver.

Burning Pro Wrestling Spirit
Mid-Match Action
Shuffle nine cards from your Ringside into your Ring, and then draw # cards, where # is equal to the number of cards in your Ring titled "Back Body Drop" or "Classic Back Body Drop". If the card titled "Fiery Revenge" is in your Ring or Ringside, you may put it into your hand.

Max Malicious Moonsault
Trademark Finisher + High Risk/Action
As a Maneuver, can only be played as a Counter or after a successfully played maneuver. Can only be reversed from hand. As an Action -35F and -30D. Shuffle this card and one card in your Ringside into your Ring, then draw 1 card. If you have more Fortitude than your opponent, draw three cards.

Thank you. Update. Breezus joint the Supershow under the Prince of Fashion moniker, he cut a dope promo announcing it and also plunged out latest Kickstarter. He played a live stream with Dillinger too on the sweetz. They botched some rules but it was awesome to watch.

Got a link to said Kickstarter?

Thank you Creed! It’s now $27 over the line with three days to go.

Anyone else here who may have contributed, thank you!

An update:

Bunny Stasis is only $139 away from meeting its goal. There’s four days left. If you can, please help get it fully funded and over the line. Irv Diaz is seriously an awesome guy and I want to see him make it.

Sports Discussion / 2019 Baseball HOF Inductees Announced
« on: January 22, 2019, 08:29:33 PM »
History has been made and a strong class for the 2019 Baseball Hall of Fame has been announced. Our inductees are:

Edgar Martinez - The first full-time DH to make the Hall. His election has set a precedent, because now full-time DHs will be seen as warranting election. He put up some amazing numbers, and the award given to the best DH each year bears his name.

Mike Mussina - Put up excellent numbers and overall excelled at pitching. He was initially hurt by the fact that he didn't win a Cy Young, along with the fact that he got lost in the shuffle due to pitching the same time as guys like Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson. But after some time, voters realized he was worthy.

Roy Halladay - Won two Cy Youngs, one in the AL and one in the NL, pitched the 20th perfect game in baseball history, became only the second pitcher to spin a postseason no-hitter, and overall was outstanding. The years he had with the Phillies will always be in my memories.

Mariano Rivera - The greatest closer of all-time, no doubts about it. Not much needs to be said. Also made history by being the first unanimously elected player. I compare that to something like a 16-seed beating a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament: I thought it would never happen. Now both have in one year.

Anyone else have thoughts about this year's class?

Professional Wrestling Discussion / Major League Wrestling (MLW)
« on: January 12, 2019, 12:26:22 PM »
Many months ago, I was flipping through some channels looking for something to watch when I stumbled upon something I was unaware was on BeIN Sports. It was pro wrestling. I was shocked. Then I heard Tony Schiavone's voice, and I was even more shocked. Then I found out it was Major League Wrestling. I thought "Wait, didn't that promotion run for a couple of years and then shut down?" A quick Google search confirmed that yes, it had, but that Court Bauer not only decided to revive the promotion, but also got a TV deal on BeIN Sports for every Friday at 8 PM.

I'd been watching it on and off, and kept on getting more and more impressed. And then I recently found out that MLW actually puts up their TV shows on YouTube after they air, but presents them as a YouTube Premiere for those people that don't have BeIN Sports. I've been binge watching it since and am now a huge fan, to the point that when MLW comes to Philadelphia on February 2nd, Dilbert and I will be going to the show.

What I've found since I've been watching MLW:

-Tony Schiavone's REALLY repairing his reputation as a wrestling commentator quickly. In an interview, he admitted his faults and attributed it partially to knowing that what WCW was putting out was crap and as a result, not being all that invested. Here? He's completely invested, and he's also showing off a great sense of humor and chemistry with both Matt Striker and Rich Bocchini. As a result, his commentary has been great.

-There's a couple of ring oldies that can STILL go. LA Park (aka La Parka) is in his early fifties and isn't exactly in the best shape, but MAN can he still go. For that matter, Carl Ouellet (aka Quebecer Pierre) reinventing himself as "The French Frankenstein" PCO and doing split-legged moonsaults and suicide dives at age 50 has caught me completely off guard.

-Teddy Hart has resurrected his career. As it turns out, there's a reason for past incidents and bad behavior by him: he's bipolar but wasn't diagnosed until a couple of years ago. Now he's getting treatment for it, and he's not only calmed down but also been putting on some great matches.

-Teddy's stablemate Brian Pillman Jr has so far in his young career impressed. He has echoes of his father, but is absolutely not trying to be his dad. Gonna keep an eye on him.

-Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr and Fenix) are amazing performers. Twice they've been involved in matches defending their tag titles where the fans in attendance have thrown money into the ring at the end. For the uninitiated: in Mexico, if a match is particularly impressive, the crowd shows its appreciation by throwing money into the ring.

-There's all sorts of styles being demonstrated, and the workers have also shown an impressive ability to adapt their preferred styles so there isn't a lack of chemistry.

-Konnan in LAX was kinda embarrassing, seeing as how he was acting like a middle-aged gangbanger. Konnan as the mentor and veteran presence for Lucha Bros and other wrestlers is much better.

-"Filthy" Tom Lawlor is great. That's all that needs to be said.

Overall, I'm hooked. Friday nights at 8 PM have become can't miss TV for me.

I encourage you to check out MLW by binge-watching their shows. Check 'em out on YouTube here.

At this past year’s GenCon, I met a guy at the FFTCG Sealed Crystal Cup named Irving Diaz. Irv and I hit it off immediately and we became friends. In particular, I recommended a place I’d been to on Wednesday called BRU Burger Bar. There was a miscommunication somewhere because he wanted me to come along with him and his buddies. We’re planning on meeting up at GenCon this year for that purpose.

The main reason I’m posting this though is because Irv has been developing a game called “Bunny Stasis”. It’s a game about being the last bunny standing and it’s a hell of a lot of fun. Irv introduced me to it and I tried it out, and I like it. Today he texted me a link. It’s for a Kickstarter for the game. Details can be found on the page for it. I highly recommend pledging to have the game made and getting it yourselves.

Read up about Bunny Stasis and pledge here.

I will obviously be pledging. I hope some of you guys decide to as well.

I will enter as follows:

-3 Mystery Entrants (12 points)
-3 Reroll Counters (3 points)

Allocate 1 reroll counter to each of my mystery entrants.

Gaming Discussion (Everything Else) / Re: Smash Ultimate
« on: January 07, 2019, 04:49:53 AM »
Apparently the four remaining DLC characters for Smash Ultimate have leaked

They are as follows:
-Erdrick (Dragon Quest)
-Steve (Minecraft)
-Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)
-The Doom Marine/Doom Slayer/Doomguy (DOOM)

My thoughts on them.

Erdrick – Okay, that’s another way for SquareEnix to get a second representative in Smash. A deep pick and one I actually like. Also gives some attention to the other big SquareEnix franchise in Dragon Quest, one that’s had a lot of success in Japan but not so much in the US.

Steve – Honestly, all I can think about when I think of Steve is SMG4’s Super Mario 64 Bloopers on YouTube, where Steve is an insane manchild. Not a Minecraft fan personally, but it makes sense.

Ryu Hayabusa – This is the (supposed) inclusion I’m the second-most excited for. Ninja Gaiden was a big part of my childhood, and I’d love to use his Ninja Arts against the Smash roster.

Doom Marine – YES PLEASE! If this is true, Doomguy will be my main. Joker from Persona 5 was the top of my wishlist, and after he got included, the Doom Marine shot to the top of my list. The rebooted DOOM is one of my favorite games, and being able to rip and tear through the Smash roster would be a dream come true.

Gaming Discussion (Everything Else) / Re: Smash Ultimate

So as it turns out, Joker in Smash might cause some trouble.

For example, he might make some suitors jealous:

Sidenote: Daisy no-selling his Persona Protag Swag(TM) is hardcore.

Or he might make the same mistake in his home game and go for a harem, which didn't end well there and won't end well in Smash:

Also sidenote: That isn't Futaba in the second panel. Easy to confuse her with Inkling Girl, I know ;)
Also also sidenote: Yes, it's supposed to be funny. But seeing Zelda, Peach, Lucina, and Inkling Girl utterly heartbroken crushes me. It'd be depressing if not for Daisy looking ready to murder Joker.

Just need to chime in regarding RTFC:

I started a running joke among my FFTCG playgroup. If someone does something during a game which goes against what a card says, whoever pointed it out will say "Nobody reads the cards!" If the guilty party catches themselves doing it before anyone else, the phrase is "Nobody reads the cards, especially me!"

Gaming Discussion (Everything Else) / Re: Smash Ultimate
« on: December 09, 2018, 11:26:19 AM »
I realized something, which I shared with other friends:

Joker is now in the game. You know who got in the previous installment? Robin.

Therefore, one of the remaining DLC characters MUST be Batman!

My logic is flawless.

Gaming Discussion (Everything Else) / Re: Smash Ultimate
« on: December 08, 2018, 05:18:54 PM »
Given the fact that Joker got in and he was on the top of my (what I thought to be) unrealistic wish list, I've got the following on my wish list.

Geno from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is one I (and most Smash players) want in. He's an underrated character from a classic SNES game that many would like to see return.

If SquareEnix is going to get another representative, I would want it to be someone not obvious. For me, Sabin Figaro (FFVI) and Tifa Lockhart (FFVII) would be my picks. Sabin and Tifa make sense as martial artists, and also avoids the "too many sword users" complaint a lot of players have.

My number one pick however is The Doom Slayer (aka The Doom Marine, aaka Doomguy) from DOOM(2016). The rebooted DOOM utterly amazed me, and The Doom Slayer might just be the greatest video game silent protagonist of all time. Plus, it appears Nintendo wants to have a special relationship with Bethesda, and what better way than including the man that makes Hell collectively s**t itself?

Previously, I'd talked with John (Dilbert) about a wishlist for Smash fighters. At the top of my list was a character from an ATLUS JRPG series. However, I considered this a pipe dream and not at all realistic.

I wake up this morning and see a text message from him. I interpret it as something else, but then after I get on my laptop and go to YouTube, I see a Smash trailer which suddenly shows what his text message was actually saying.

You, me, and everyone else never saw it coming.

Noted and updated.

Good evening everyone!

I'm posting this up because I will be on-stream during the event. Saturday, from 6 PM to 8 PM to be specific. I will be playing Blade Strangers, a fun little fighting game, giving an overview of the game as well as having random folks come on to play with me. And if you are able, donations to benefit Extra Life would be appreciated! Gamers Heaven has a Twitch channel where the event will be streamed.

Event info can be found here. GH's Twitch is located here.

For the first time, cards have been banned from Final Fantasy TCG.

As of December 1st, Gesper [5-034C] and Thaumaturge [5-040C] are now banned from Constructed format.

To explain the cards:

Gesper is an Ice Monster which costs 2 CP. While he's in play, on your turn, you can dull him to make each player discard one card. Thaumaturge is an Ice Forward for 2 CP which, when he comes into play, makes the opponent discard a card. He also gains +4000 Power if the opponent has two or less cards in their hand.

Turbo Ice Discard is something that has been prevalent throughout the last two sets. Considering you can have multiple Gesper and Thaumaturge out, and their cheap cost, it's fairly easy to nuke the opponent's hand and make them go into topdeck mode for the rest of the game. Now in playing, I will say that Turbo Ice, while annoying, is not an unbeatable monster. In fact, speaking personally, I've faced the deck multiple times and have won as much as I've lost against it. If anything, to borrow a Raw Deal term, this seems to be based on Turbo Ice Discard being an NPE for players, and SquareEnix making the move is not only to tone down the deck, but also remove the Turbo Ice NPE.

We'll have to wait to see if Turbo Ice Discard weakens significantly to open the meta, but this is exciting news.

Ken and Incineroar have been announced for the Smash Ultimate roster.

We also got something completely out of left field with Piranha Plant. I'm fairly certain this is Sakurai sticking it to the ungrateful f**kers who piss and moan about everything regarding Smash, but I'll just say I like it.

We're also getting a new single-player mode called "World of Light", which looks pretty neat.

Honestly though, the thing that got me hyped most wasn't any of the above. It was the fact that the game has a VOCAL theme, and it's absolutely beautiful.

Just randomly throwing this out there. I have some questions, specifically about the marriage candidates. If anyone here plays, I would appreciate your answers.

1. Who did you marry?

2. If you married Penny, please explain why she is best girl.

3. If you didn't marry Penny, why are you so heartless as to keep her trapped in that trailer with her alcoholic and emotionally abusive mother?

4. If you married Shane, please explain why he is best boy.

5. If you didn't marry Shane, why are you so heartless as to not be the support he needs to help him deal with his depression and suicidal thoughts?
