[Vol. 2] The BrainBusters Present: A Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

(Thanks be to sheepster for the Brainbuster banners) The Snake behind him, the last thing the Dead Man expected was to be confronted by a cockroach. It is not unheard of, a small man picking a fight with a man much larger than he, but surely Harvey Wippleman must have known that there was little good to come of provoking the Undertaker. But provoke, Harvey Wippleman would. Provoke and then immediately seek refuge behind his newest client, a simpleton who knew no better than to protect this small white man who brought him chickens. They called Kamala the “Ugandan Giant” with good reason. He was discovered in the jungles of Uganda, for one thing, and he stood six-feet, seven inches tall for another. Not to mention the fact that he weighed nearly four hundred pounds. He was rumored to … [Read more...]

[Vol. 1] The BrainBusters Present: A Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

(Thanks be to sheepster for the Brainbuster banners) His story began six feet under the ground—somewhere in Death Valley. He ascended suddenly—a cold November in 1990—straight from a Charles Dickens novel, mixed evenly with Poe and Hawthorne. Grey boots, grey gloves (no prints), grey-and-black tie, boxed like a funeral casket. Bobby Heenan called him "cold as ice." "Awesome" is all Gorilla Monsoon could think to say. Vince McMahon, "Creepy." Fans first meeting the Undertaker knew nothing of the legacy that lay before him, nor did they understand his past. For, unbeknownst to them, before the Undertaker placed his first boot on higher ground, he had already taken a life. About the time he first appeared in the World Wrestling Federation, NWA wrestler Mean Mark Callous—pale as he was … [Read more...]

Vortex Effect NCAA Top Ten #9

Sorry for the delay folks, I've been having some sort of computer issue that I can't quite fully figure out just yet.  Here is this week's Top Ten...Finally.   1) Alabama Crimson Tide 8-0 (4) 49 – Tide rolled past Tennessee in the 2nd half last week to set up a big showdown with LSU next weekend. 2) LSU Tigers 8-0 (1) 46 – See above comments, except replace with Tennessee with Auburn and 2nd half with whole game. 3) Boise State Broncos 7-0 38 – And the Brocos complete a trifecta of top teams on bye this week. 4) Oklahoma State 7-0 35 – Cowboys dispatched with Missouri last week, this week it will get a little tougher as they welcome Baylor and RG3. 5) Clemson 8-0 28 – Dabo's Tigers trip to Atlanta had all the makings of a big match-up two weeks ago before Georgia Tech dropped … [Read more...]

WWE ’12 Fan Axxess Program Announced, Priced

THQ today released the details of their Fan Axxess program for WWE '12, and it works exactly the same as it did for Smackdown vs. RAW 2011. I bought into the program then, and I'll be doing so again for WWE '12. The Fan Axxess program will be available on XBLA and PSN for 960 Microsoft Points or $11.99. This is essentially pre-ordering all of the DLC for the game. If you plan on buying every item for WWE '12, you'll save 25% by buying Fan Axxess as each piece of DLC will sale for $0.99/80MS Points. In addition to all of the DLC, buying Fan Axxess also includes the Attribute Customizer (which allows you to change the attributes of every WWE superstar, diva, and legend), and All Unlockables (which does what it says, unlocks everything in the game). Each of these items will also be sold … [Read more...]

WWE ’12 Getting Diva’s Pack DLC, Contains Six Divas

WWE '12 hits stores on November 22nd, and it's first DLC pack was announced on Tuesday (and the DLC is also coming in November). Today, THQ announced the second DLC pack, and this one contains six divas: Trish Stratus, Kharma, Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, and Vickie Guerrrero. The Diva's Pack will be available at some point in December. Each piece of content will be available separately for $0.99 (PSN) or 80 Microsoft Points. You can see the roster art for each of the six divas above. Alicia Fox is FREE DLC. I don't particularly use the Diva's too much, but Trish is one of my all-time favorites period, so she's a welcome addition. As is Kharma, who I may just build a good divas division around (along with Trish, Beth, and Natalya). Vickie Guerrero will make for a good … [Read more...]
