  1. Same here. We've had this vast library for years and they are starting with no match markers and not a complete library. And it'll be several months until we may see it all. If we see it all. I'm hoping they don't further edit anything like from the attitude era because it's not on their own platform anymore. Just worried and a little frustrated.
  2. Maybe that's my problem with him.
  3. I will give you that. He can sell and take an ass whoopin'. Same with Orange Cassidy. Other than that I don't see alot of redeeming qualities in either one of them but that's just me.
  4. Not sure if it's unpopular because I haven't been on in sometime, but the whole idea behind them not wanting to focus on heels and babyfaces in a traditional sense is absolutely absurd. It makes most of your matches and angles absolutely pointless and leaves no room to build much over a longer period of time. No feeling of wanting to care about talent when there's nothing to relate to. And if they do do something right, it'll be completely looked over the following week. And they all do the same high risk spots and do it every week to the point it means nothing. Also Darby Allin and the Young Bucks are absolute jokes.
  5. Yeah unfortunately. Just the best way to pay off things. And yeah I bought it existing. Sucks but it is what it is I guess. Just hope things work out well with everything.
  6. Man no theater is playing it around me. I can't wait to see it!
  7. Going through a divorce and trying to sell my business because of it. So things could be worse but I haven't had much time for anything lately, lol.
  8. Played the first hour and a half last night. Truly incredible so far. Some of the fights are challenging, the swinging and traversing is phenomenal and the dialogue and attention to detail hasn't been done in a Spiderman game before. At least not this level. I can't wait to get back home and play more.
  9. Those long track shots are what this needed. Very pumped!
  10. And how's that? Because they announced the full list before the game is out? I hate people who bitch about that. Giving a description and title to each of the DLC add-ons doesn't mean the content is finished, or could have been in the game at launch. It's just a statement of "here is what we're adding when it's finished". People who complain about getting a rundown of upcoming DLC are the lowest form of gamers. Also, the price for all three add-ons is cheap, IMO, for what it sounds like the content offers. $25 for three entire story arcs is not bad at all. We could all do far worse. Yeah that's what their hang up is. They feel like the first DLC getting released so soon after the game is out is cut content. It doesn't mean it is but I can understand both sides here. I'm sure the others are not finished though. And I wouldn't call them the lowest form of gamers. The industry hasn't exactly been the best in their business practices so you can't blame a lot of them. And I agree the price isn't bad at all. Depends on how long the story arcs are too though. Have they mentioned how long yet? That makes a difference too.
  11. I'm still behind on a few games. Still haven't even played God of War yet. I think I'm pushing that and Tomb Raider back. I might even push Spyro and Hitman back too. I'm also glad they postponed Battlefield. I'm 100% getting Spiderman day one and between WWE, Red Dead, Pokemon, and Smash Bros it's already a nightmare, lol. Not too bad of one but still. This fall is crazy stacked. I might even skip Fallout altogether. Can't wait for Spidey though. I guess people are pretty pissed at this DLC business.
  12. This is just incredible! And the art style is....did I mention how amazing that shit looks! Here's the english version:
  13. Bout time!! That's awesome!
  14. I kinda figured he found them after the escape near the facility and killed them to get his mask back. Looks like the documentary crew is to blame for pissing him off though. Michael was triggered lol. Would be interesting if there was a bit more to this guy though.
  15. Words cannot describe how happy I am with the looks of this so far! I'm huge Halloween fan and am so ready for this. I was bummed about the retcon of 2 as well because that was one of my favorites and they both went so well together but this is going to be good. I mean it can't be any worse than Resurrection lol. It looks like a scary movie/slasher should be made and looks as of now like they captured the look and feel of Halloween. That closet scene though!
  16. Finally Got my poster from a local theater to put up in the store. Love this movie!
  17. The old burger joint that was here about 20 years ago had some old arcade machines and pacman was one of them. I miss old arcades. Arcades are still around...but they're kind of more trouble than they're worth these days. You have to go to some place like Barcade, and fight with a hundred other people to play the games. The classic "hole in the wall" mall arcade was a thing of beauty. yeah they were.

  19. Nah it's all good man. It's things I've definitely considered. Just trying to make the best of what I can. A business is tough enough as it is. In a smaller area it's that much harder to introduce new things. We're in a town that has never really had an outlet for comics. The closest one was always 45 minutes away or more. The tanning thing is just a service to offer on the side and already have a lot of buzz so I like the odds. Plus i'm not in it for much so it's a risk I can take without it hurting us. Since we've always been a video store first. It kind of helps funding the side projects. It may take a bit for some people to see it as a comic shop too but it doesn't give it an automatic stigma at the same time.
  20. Careful adding too much shit...or you'll lose your primary demographic. Especially with something as random as tanning. Movie and comic nerds tend to be a specific breed of people. You run the risk of chasing them off if you always have people coming in to tan. Well a lot of video stores actually do tanning as a side gig so it's not really as random as you may think. Plus it's in the back portion of the building away from anything else. So really won't effect anything. If anything the comics would steer tanners away because of the demographic. The idea is to also create a location isn't designed strictly for basement dwellers like many shops are guilty of doing. So far it's been working out great with people of all kinds coming in. I don't have table top or card gaming atm so while I get those types in all the time, they don't hang around and make it theirs so to speak. It's important to make it comfortable for everyone and not scare women away. Moms are the ones that bring their kids in after all.
  21. You own your own comic book shop? Yeah kinda. It's getting there, lol. It's a pretty good sized video store. We rent, buy, and sell games and movies mostly. Been here for about 15 years now and I took over a couple years ago. I just added comics and some collectibles back in October. Get new stuff every week and it's still growing so it's been fun. The only thing I need to really start adding is more back issues. Figured it would be a cool way to offset numbers when rentals are slow. My wife is adding tanning too, lol. I never intended on it but I guess we'll just try and do everything in town lol. I'm more focused on Movies and Comics right now personally. I'm more passionate about it. I have to say I've heard some horror stories about Diamond but I've been pretty fortunate so far with limited damage or missing orders.
  22. Well my first Free Comic Book Day was a success as an owner. Much bigger turnout and excitement than I expected for a smaller area. Can't wait for next year already!
  23. Nice, not really a better endorsement of your artistic talent than that. No there probably isn't. I wish I would've got to meet him at comic con. My buddy said he was super nice. Hopefully next year.
