Well, it certainly appears that Christmas will be arriving both early AND late this year. After “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega successfully defended his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against Trent Barretta at New Japan’s Power Struggle event this past Sunday, Chris Jericho made an appearance on screen, challenging Omega to a match at Wrestle Kingdom 12 on January 4th at the Tokyo Dome. Now, while many long-time wrestling fans know that Y2J is no stranger to the Land of the Rising Sun, his connection to the WWE certainly raises a few eyebrows and makes the impact much bigger.

Alright then! Now, after you’ve watched this video 27 times over, you should be refreshed with ‘Stranger Things’ season 1, and be ready to binge season 2 of the award-winning series on Netflix.
For long-time WWE fans who were watching Sunday’s Tables-Ladders-Chairs pay-per-view, Kurt Angle’s return to in-ring competition with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose was an emotional ride. Although the company ignored his contributions and amazing matches in That Company That Shall Not Be Named Whatever Its Name Is This Week, the experience was something special and endearing, from how goofy he looked in the Shield SWAT gear to his ability to german-suplex all five members of the opposing team and deliver a series of Angle Slams. Some of us even shed a little tear after he secured the pin-fall victory for his team… Continue reading A Look Back to Just Before Kurt Angle’s Return to a WWE Ring before TLC 2017…

This past week saw the release of the long-awaited and highly-anticipated game Cuphead, a classic run-and-gun action game, developed and published by StudioMDHR Entertainment, focused on a “boss rush” style of battle system (i.e., not a lot of “levels with a boss at the end”; with few exceptions, like the “run-and-gun” test levels to hone your skills, you start almost every level by immediately fighting the boss). What that concept may be interesting, the next eye-grabbing aspect of Cuphead is it’s visual style, being heavily inspired by 1930’s cartoons, with the visuals and audio being painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, including traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings. With Cuphead’s structure and audio/visual style being huge draws to the game, the third element that adds to this game’s charm is its difficulty, which is able to find that fine balance of being challenging without being frustrating. And yeah, Cuphead WILL INDEED test your hand/eye coordination, timing, and muscle-memory.

This new trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 stars a new character named Arthur Morgan and is set before the events of the first game. The trailer features a younger Dutch and his group of outlaws, including the new protagonist Arthur. If you recall from the original Red Dead Redemption, Dutch was the leader of a gang that included that game’s main protagonist John Marston, as well as the man he was chasing, Bill Williamson. It’s probably a safe bet to assume both John and Bill will be in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 doesn’t have a solid release date, but is slated for a Spring 2018 release window for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
