Yes, you read that right… In this game, you meet a girl, fall in love, have your soul stolen, fight Hitler and get strung up by the KKK. Maybe this is why Nintendo barely promoted the game, gave it a very generic cover and never re-released it. For the sake of comparison, Nintendo re-releases PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING; if you don’t believe me, ask yourself how many times you’ve re-purchased Super Mario Bros. and/or The Legend of Zelda.

Recently, Dean Puckering and Chris Dutton interviewed “The Narcissist”, “The All-American” and “The Total Package” himself, Lex Luger. In the interview, Luger discussed his career, finding religion and his future; also he has an autobiography out called “Wrestling with the Devil: The True Story of a World Champion Professional Wrestler – His Reign, Ruin, and Redemption“. Some of the interesting highlights from the interview include the well-documented rumor regarding his knowledge of his WrestleMania X WWF Championship match, his appearance on the first episode of WCW Monday Nitro, and finding God. After the break, there are some summaries from the interview, and you can listen to the entire interview by clicking this link.

…and the Question of the Week!!
If was possible for the fallen angel Satan (a.k.a. Lucifer) to have designed the most frustrating, challenging, and impossible video game of all time, I’m fairly certain it would be Takeshi’s Challenge. Originally released on the Nintendo Family Computer (or Famicom, the Japanese variant of the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES) in Japan on December 10th, 1986, and became renowned for it’s unrelenting difficulty.
Patience is a virtue. The Bible says in Hebrews 6:11-12 that “we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Anything that we have to wait for is typically worth the waiting, and the same can be said for video game releases. We anticipate a new game, hear and/or read the official announcement, keep track through previews, screenshots, trailers, and gameplay footage, plop down cash to reserve said game, anticipate the coming release date, then BAM; the game’s delayed for a few more months! Check out the three games I was looking forward to playing this late-spring and fall that are now being delayed until next year after the break.
