@Tasuki: plenty of great acting-type wrestlers in the WWE have had crap storylines before — one of the worst examples IMO was Eddie Guerrero's last one, that whole 'i'm your papi' bit. Eddie was a wonderful actor amongst wrestlers (and i know i still miss him, even if his death did launch Vickie into the role of one of my most favorite heels ever), but i couldn't watch those bits where he was going after Rey's kid. There was no saving that storyline. I get that acting is half of it, but even the best actor can't save a plot if the plot is crap, so i don't think it's fair to load all the blame onto Bryan's shoulders.

i think he'll get to the point someday where he's genuinely fun to watch both in and out of matches and i'll look forward to watching him act out a storyline, but that day kinda isn't here yet for me i don't think. not entirely, though again i did quite enjoy that steel cage match recently, lol.

about DB, i gotta say i love him as a wrestler, but his storylines... ergh. Team Hell No was the last time I really enjoyed his 'character' on-screen (and it was mostly his chemistry with Kane, y'know? they were hilarious together), that whole business afterward with him being all insecure with himself and taking it out on everyone else just pissed me off, and then him vs. The Authority? it's been done. meh.

I did like that whole thing in the cage a while back where he turned the tables on the Wyatts, though. i'd hoped it was gonna happen but you can never be sure whether the writers will give you what you want or it'll all just go to crap, y'know?

and i miss Dolph Ziggler, but I'm very glad AJ seems to not be around so much anymore, and I'm liking where Big E's going.

@ELI-ASH: i try to avoid the dirt sheets and proper wrestling forum to avoid spoilers (and excess behind-the-scenes seriousness, i prefer to stay properly bamboozled)... but dammit. I want Vince to step back and let H take over in his place as ambiguous antagonist, I really do. :(

@MoogleMuffins: if i had to theorize or anything... I'm gettin' the feeling that Vince ain't gettin' any younger, so they've sorta had H take his place on-screen. If you look at him as a Vince McMahon stand-in, his place in the WWE world seems clearer. H himself has always been ambiguous at best, flip-flopping from heel to face as he pleased (or as the writers wrote him, whatever), he can be as serious as he can be hilarious, so i think he's perfect for the role, really. it's not his fault Stephanie has always been a beast, lol. as for her making him apologize to Punk... well, he was in the wrong, and she had to keep him in line, i guess. it kinda made sense from a corporate standpoint (like the thing with H and the potential lawsuit from Big Show a while ago), and it sorta reminded the rest of us that he's very much a puppet in whatever game The Authority is playing at the moment. Stephanie seems to be playing 'legal enforcer' or something, since she was the one to insist to both of them that they were in the wrong and they had to go out and apologize and whatnot in both situations, come to think of it.

as for things that have happened in the past, you know as well as I do that WWE tends to ignore (ahem) major happenings like that if it's convenient for them to do so. if they ever decide to go after Punk for srs I'm sure they'll trot that amazing rant of his out again, but for now, it seems they're letting it slide. :3

Team Hell No was fantastic, Kane didn't end up doing much though when they split up. Monster gimmicks don't work as well now as they did in the 90's, they are too cartoonish for this era, so by having Kane be corporate, lets him have the chance to be a more believable monster.

he never does a whole lot of anything after he's done with a feud or team or anything, that's why i'm glad to see him still getting airtime. and you're absolutely right — he's still a monster, just with a new setting and a new way to intimidate people. not sure how long it'll last, what with that dressing-down from Stephanie over the way he handled Punk a couple episodes ago, but for now, i'm content :3

I've really loved Kane ever since he showed up (well, since Jacobs showed up as Kane; i don't remember much about his earlier gimmicks), the whole 'Brothers of Destruction' thing back in the day was so awesome. hell, everything back in the days of the Monday Night Wars was pretty awesome. i sorta miss the days of 'monster' types getting over and terrorizing people, it's just so much fun than the usual 'grr i'm'a get that title belt' stuff :3

@MoogleMuffins: oh my god i'm so glad i'm not the only one who is enjoying Kane right now. i know he's not doing the Big Red Monster thing at the moment and he gets heckled with 'you sold out' chants every time he shows up now, but damned if I don't find him terrorizing Maddox hilarious, and I don't mind him playing his part with The Authority at all. he's oddly well-suited for the job (haha, suited, geddit?).

shoot, in all honesty i'm just glad he's still getting decent airtime after the end of Team Hell No (which had me rolling for months, him and Bryan and those little counseling skits of theirs were hilarious).

@AnActualDash: I like how it's the fault of the person you insulted that your 'joke' at their expense was not found to be absolutely hilarious. Please, tell me more about how i should learn to laugh when I've been insulted instead of oh, i dunno, maybe you owning up to it, apologizing for having been rude in the first place, and then moving on with the actual topic at hand.

i use them for quick notes regarding where i'm going in a game sometimes. i remember when i was playing Code of Princess i jotted down what levels i needed characters' stats to be so that i could get through to the end of the game, it helped me to focus while grinding. And then for FE:A, I used it to help plan which people were going to marry whom, and to remember what skills I was grinding them toward in order to pass 'em down to their kids. Most of the time i forget the feature is there, though :$

What pisses me off about it are the people who can't control themselves. Regardless what content may be showcased in a game, this is still a family-friendly website and there's always someone posting inappropriate comments about which character(s) they'll be (ahem) thinking about that night while doing other things, comments about breasts and sexual acts, hell I even had to edit out a comment the other day regarding a sex toy as a potential preorder bonus. It's obscene, guys, and it falls under 'Unacceptable Content'.

People saying to just ignore the game, that I don't have to pay attention or play the game at all, this would be the case in a perfect world but alas, but I still have to deal with the idiocy surrounding it, and so do others who aren't fans of the content or genre. That's what i'd imagine a lot of us get upset over — i distinctly remember having to edit out a discussion between some of our younger users in the original Senran Kagura thread on the forums that consisted largely of masturbational onomatopoeia and estimations regarding Kleenex and lotion consumption in their respective households before and after the game's release. That's why i put my foot down in the early pages of that thread; this is is not the sort of discussion we aim to foster here at the Nlife Network.

In short, you can say you control yourselves adequately, but are you really attempting to maturely discuss the game or are you posting for the sole purpose of saying something disgustingly lewd? If it's the latter, you may want to reconsider your idea of 'self-control'.
