Deadly Venom: Uber Entertainment Isn’t Doing Anything Wrong By Selling An Early Access Title in Stores

Planetary Annihilation

Once again someone has done something in the games industry that has other people going on and on about how horrible it is and how it'll destroy the industry. That someone is Uber Entertainment and Nordic Games and the something is Planetary Annihilation being sold in stores in a box as an Early Access title (at least in Europe). Planetary Annihilation is a real time strategy game on the PC. In 2012, Uber Entertainment went on Kickstarter to try and get funding for their game (after all, most of the developers had worked on Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander, so they had a good track record). Uber set their goal at $900,000 and pretty quickly met that goal, which then brought about the stretch goals. When it was all said and done, Uber had raised over $2.2 million for the … [Read more...]

WWE Money in the Bank 2014 Predictions

MITB

It's been a while since I have written anything wrestling related for the site, but since I'm actually looking forward to Money in the Bank (and was inspired to write my own after reading Nikki's predictions on her wonderful blog GeekyNikki) I've decided to write up my predictions for tonight's WWE Money in the Bank event on PPV and of course WWE Network. Now I'm not going to just try to predict the winner of every match, I'm also going to try and predict the match order for the entire night. There are seven matches announced, and none of them have been announced for the pre-show (that seems to be a Daniel Bryan interview), so I should be good to go since I doubt they add in another match. So I'll start my predictions off with the match I think will open the show, and will end with the … [Read more...]

Three Changes WWE Should Make To PPV’s Now That The Network Has Arrived

We're now just about a week away from WrestleMania XXX and the true beginning of a new era in professional wrestling. For decades, major wrestling has been built around trying to entice fans to shell out $20 to $75 for a pay-per-view every single month (some months twice). You can read the results of these old PPV's (or watch them all on WWE Network!) and really get an idea of how the industry has evolved. With WrestleMania XXX, the industry (for WWE anyway) evolves once again. Yes, PPV's will still air (for now) on traditional providers for outrageous prices, but for many of us we'll be watching the events live on WWE Network for only $9.99 a month. It's because of this new model that I'd like to see  WWE change how “pay-per-views” are presented and built towards when it comes to the LIVE … [Read more...]

Deadly Venom: WWE Extreme Rules 2012 Preview & Predictions

The Miz vs. Santino Marella for the United States Championship (preshow match): This match will be streamed live on WWE's YouTube page when the pre-show begins at 6:30 pm CST. It's quite a thrown together match, so it's a good thing this is airing for free on a pre-show instead of actually on the pay-per-view. I'm torn on this one. Santino is a comedy character and that's all he will ever be. Yes, he gets a good reaction from the crowd, but it's a joke when he beats talented wrestlers who can actually be elevated to main event status (especially when he wins with that horrible Cobra finisher). On the other hand, the Miz is an average wrestler who shouldn't be anywhere near the main-event, but yet somehow still feels above this match and this title. My hope here is that WWE puts the title … [Read more...]

Deadly Venom: Is WWE Wasting Talent? Woo Woo Woo… You Know It!

WWE has a serious problem right now, actually it's one they've had for quite some time. That problem is a lack of vision, focus, and severely misusing talent. I'm not talking about the obvious misusing of Jack Swagger, Sheamus and John Morrison, but rather the WWE "nobodies" of Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, and Trent Barreta... ironically enough three good friends who have come up together. When Curt Hawkins got drafted to RAW during the Supplemental Draft, our own Q commented "Who?" Who can blame him? It's not like WWE has featured these guys or done anything to make fans care, despite being in the company for years. The really sad thing here is that while WWE gives airtime to King, Michael Cole, and JR, which is completely pointless for the future of the company, talented young … [Read more...]
