  1. Two years ago areaseven left Macross World so this thread pretty much died out without his enthusiasm and support. Anybody else keeping up with wrestling these days? WWE? Impact? ROH? I pretty much have stopped watching, but I still enjoy the videos Botchamania puts out and I'm still following Wrestlecrap after almost two decades.
  2. Wow, nice to see that somebody subbed this and put it up on YouTube. Definitely a neat piece of Macross/DYRL history.
  3. Carl, The issue you are looking for is September 2002 Issue 61. Optimus Prime is on the issue I have (cover 2 of 2). There was a Robotech price guide in the back of that issue. The article you contributed on is on page 102.
  4. Twenty years ago today... "Hulk Hogan is the Third Man!" "Well the first thing you've gotta realize, brother, is that this right here is the future of wrestling. You can call this the New World Order of wrestling, brother." For better or for worse the event that probably had one of the biggest impacts on professional wrestling the last two decades happened this very day in 1996 at WCW's Bash at the Beach pay per view event. The Hulkster's heel turn and the birth of the NWO helped propel the WCW to the top of the ratings war with the then WWF and to help propel professional wrestling to its highest popularity ever. But in the next few years WCW would be driven into the ground by the overuse of the NWO (EVERYBODY in the WCW wanted to be part of the NWO in some way), behind the scenes politicking by certain veterans, and some major gross incompetence within the WCW. By the spring of 2001 the WCW was sold to its rival the WWF for just a few million dollars. The now WWE has had no serious direct competition to motivate itself ever since. For those interested check out RD Reynolds (of wrestlecrap.com fame) and Bryan Alvarez's book The Death of WCW 10th Anniversary Edition for a look back at those eventful times. The Death of WCW: 10th Anniversary Edition of the Bestselling Classic — Revised and Expanded.
  5. Not a BAD GUY... Not a GOOD GUY... Not THE GUY... (as of Sunday) and now... Not even A GUY... in the WWE universe for the next 30 days. Roman Reigns Suspended for 30 Days.
  6. That explains that. In the past I have tried to post YouTube videos on here and some would show as links while others would show up correctly. Thanks again.
  7. "Hey... you people, you know who I am, but you don't know why I'm here..." And in this day in professional wrestling it was 20 years ago today that Scott Hall, after having completed a several year run in the WWF as "Razor Ramon", made an out-of-the-blue appearance at the end of WCW Nitro. In the weeks to follow fellow Kliq member Kevin "Diesel" Nash, who had also had just left the WWF, joined up with him and were presented as an unofficial "invasion" by the WWF. And just a few more weeks after that Terry "Hulk Hogan" Bollea joined their merry band at the WCW pay-per view event "Bash at the Beach" and thus the New World Order (NWO) was born. Though the rivalry between the WWF and WCW had been ever increasing up to that point, it was this particular chain of events that help take the WCW to the top of the ratings for the next few years over the WWF and helped fuel the mass popularity of professional wrestling in the late 1990's. But as a result of the NWO concept going too far and being driven into the ground, self serving politcing of some of the veteran wrestlers (ie. the like of Hogan and Nash), and gross incompetence of the WCW as a whole the WCW came to an end in 2001 and was bought out by its rival, the WWF. The WWF (now WWE) has never had a serious direct competitor ever since and there are probably plenty who would argue the product has suffered for it. Who would have thought that this particular moment in a single TV program would have such rippling repercussions 20 years later? (Question, how do I get a YouTube video to show as a viewer window and not a link?)
  8. I've been out of the Macross toy/VF-1 collecting scene since about 2008, but this may very likely get me back into swing.
  9. Not even that. Remember the Robotech Classic Collection from last summer? Dead in the water at just Volume 1 (first 18 episodes of Macross and Robotech).
  10. I saw it over a week ago. I enjoyed it for what it was worth and if the sequels happen I would see them as well. But with that said, it's kind of my opinion that the Terminator series, just like The Highlander series, should have not gone beyond the first film. Like other time travel movies, such as The Final Countdown, the movie is self contained and self full-filling; the attempts to go back in time to change history is what actually became the history that was supposed to have been changed. Terminator 2 was in many ways what the first movie should have been, but now James Cameron had the money, technology, and clout to make this a great film. And since nobody has posted this anywhere else in this thread... https://youtu.be/bBBw9E2Q_aY
  11. Definitely stoked about Rock Band making the current gen with most or all of our old songs transfering over. But still I definitely have a lot of fondess for the 360 and have quite a few 360 games I am still whittling away at, including achievements in the first Rock Band (yep 7+ years later).
  12. Time to resurrect my old thread. Maybe it's time for an Xbone thread... Anyway I was curious if anyone here still has/plays the 360 version of Battlefield 3. I've wrapped up all the achievements except the most difficult one "Bullseye". "Bullseye" is the one on the Drop 'em Like Liquid stage in co-op where your team goes through without alerting any of the bad guys. The huge problem is trying to find anyone that is willing or component enough to do this. If anyone wants to help, let me know. I plan on getting rid of the game in about a week unless I can get help.
