I'm pretty sure it's in the works.

On a related note (no i'm not reviewing the game, just wanna talk about it), i don't think i've seen a thread for this yet, so i've taken the liberty of turning this into one. has anyone else given this game a try? i picked it up on impulse myself — the story is predictable and the translation is mid-90's Konami-style atrocious, but i'm a sucker for that sort of thing. the gameplay is interesting, but the difficulty level ramps up on you quick once you've got them unlocked. i need to try grinding my doods up some levels and see if that helps. :3

brock vs bryan was the original plan for summerslam actually but since bryan got injured Cena took his spot. In both cases I assume Brock would have won the belt.

i know, and i reiterate: DB beating Brock to get the belts off of him would fall into the 'it'd take a miracle' category, lol :3

@ELI-ASH: it'd be like David and Goliath though, one good suplex and he'd be dead in the water. remember, Cena has F5'd Big Show in the past and dumped him over the ropes singlehandedly more than once back in his heyday. Taker is also a pretty big guy and has consistently held his own against other large wrestlers. somehow i can't see DB as ruthless or dangerous enough to take on Lesnar the way they're hyping him now, and coming back from a major injury, it'd be like throwing away all that expensive surgery and rehab time they've invested in him to have it be spoiled by one too-rough move. it'd be like throwing a chihuahua in with a rottweiler or something, so i'd class that under 'miracle', lol.

are you kidding? Cena didn't even put up a fight. He looked dazed throughout most of the match. I don't mind him losing, but ffs at least try to make it believable. and you wanna talk 'five moves of doom', how many german suplexes was that, anyway? what a boring match to end with.

in all seriousness, where can they go with the belts now? seth's MitB is useless against Lesnar, and Reigns, love him to death, but is he really the man capable of stopping the monster that took down the Undertaker on his own home turf, a feat attempted by the best in the biz twenty-one times before him as well as the monster who freakin' suplexed cena like 16 times over in one match and turned his own F5 against him?

not to mention Lesnar can't cut a promo to save his life — the man just can't act — and also, he hasn't been a regular wrestler since his return. only PPVs and the occasional trot-out-the-meat moment while Heyman waxes loquacious and someone tries something stupid. are we really to expect that the unified heavyweight champ will wrestle only PPVs now, or is he just gonna gradually pound everyone in that locker room into an unsightly pulp?

i really think the writers have made a grievous error with this Lesnar push. the only thing that can save us now is either an injury, a miracle, or Lesnar vs HHH (because seriously, The Authority trumps everything nowadays... always a plan B and all that).

meh, not a fan of the brie vs steph ending. too soon after the shield breakup — yeah, we all probably knew the bellas wouldn't really be a tag team anymore no matter how tonight turned out, but it didn't need to happen like that. sigh.

that kick to H's face was pretty sweet though :3

So who's watching Summerslam? anyone? Bueller?

just watched Bray beat Jericho (dammit, not the singing again... barfffff). too bad, Jericho's jacket seemed extra snazzy tonight.

and how 'bout that lumberjack match? it ended predictably, but it was fun to watch Seth get his butt kicked all around the arena, as well as Bo dumped over a barrier and Gold/Stardust go after Corporate Kane for interfering. fun fun fun for everyone :3

my feed's a little behind, and i missed the kickoff match, but right now they're going into the brie/steph match. yawn...

What in the ever-loving hell just happened here? If someone asks you to use a given set of pronouns, just do it. You have no idea who or what is on the other end of the screen anyway, so why is it some kind of big fat hairy deal that Gioku is female? For pete's sake you'd think someone just dropped a bomb on your house with the way some of you react to these things.

Besides, i thought we all already knew there are no girls on the internets anyway. What does it matter? Let's stop being nasty to one another and move on, please.

@Gioku, if you experience any more harassment over your gender, let me know. We've never tolerated it before, and we're not about to start now.

^ i would suggest this idea as well. if you just can't wrap your mind around the idea of being led to marry a female character in a game you already own, there's a good chance it'll sour your experience in RF3 to the point where it wouldn't be worth the purchase.

and for what it's worth, i get your original question and don't think you meant offense in the slightest. i wish there were more games with broader options available so that everyone can immerse themselves as fully as possible. :( I am going to go ahead and lock this thread before any real idiocy comes out of it, though. You've got some solid suggestions to work with, and we wish you the best of luck :3

@navi: rule of thumb on that has always been six months or so. a year, we'd take it on a case-by-case basis, and if the new duplicate has a stronger conversation going or more pages, we may lock the old thread instead of the new. Also, there are a few threads that historically have gone through periods of dormancy but we will always lock/redirect toward, like the 'favorite user' and 'nl users you haven't seen in a while' threads or the xbox and playstation ongoing fan threads in Other Gaming.

The specific issue we're referencing here is users digging back to threads from 2009-2012 for no reason other than to confuse people and/or cause a ruckus. People have been reporting them due to the disruption, so we're taking care of the problem. :3

I gotta ask, is there any way Nintendo Life will have an auto archive system for threads over a year or two old?

We've brought it up with Ant before, so far as i know it's a part of his (already lengthy) list of Things to Do. Necromancy has never really been a high-ranking problem before is all, most users here know better than to trawl the depths of the forums to dredge up old and outdated topics and we've relied heavily in users setting good examples for one another by not doing so. On the rare occasion we had a user who wanted to play the 'lol old topic is old' game, usually they'd get the hint when the threads they've bumped are suddenly inaccessible and their fun is over, they move on to active discussions. We had a few users not getting the hint this time, though, so we're trying to nip the problem before it gets any farther out of hand. Hopefully they'll be more constructive upon their return :3

Anyway, no word on when an auto-archive system will happen, but I'm sure Ant will surprise us with it someday :3

@torotoid64: Not exactly sure off the top of my head what thread you're referring to or how long it's been dormant, but a good rule of thumb would be to please post constructively while you're here. Given the hypothetical idea that you'd be posting in an outdated thread for the sole purpose of laughing at the topic at hand in general... this is not constructive posting and may get you a temp-ban. I'd suggest letting a sleeping thread lie :3

@Morphbug: You are correct, we would either let it go or lock/redirect to a more recent active thread (to avoid the 'no duplicates' rule, and also to get you in touch with people who perhaps are playing the game still :3). As long as we can tell you are genuinely trying to contribute to the topic or to be constructive, we will assume good faith.
