Is Nintendo trying to beat itself (Zelda BOTW) for G.O.T.Y.?
I would be willing to bet that there is a large percentage of Nintendo Switch owners that still only own Legend of Zelda: Breathe of the Wild. Until today, that is. Super Mario Odyssey is finally here. But, is it worth the hype? Will it be better than Super Mario Sunshine? (half kidding) Let’s see what respected game reviewers around YouTube have to say!
GOT – Since “The Red Wedding” episode of Game of Thrones aired in June 2013, actor David Bradley has either been invited to ALL the weddings, or no weddings. On one hand, who wouldn’t want to take a picture with Walder Frey, like a Redditor recently did? On the other, well, at least your entire family is there. Makes the funeral much easier to plan.
There’s a few things I know to be true: George Clooney is a beautiful prince, Bill Paxton discovered the Titanic and if you go to a wedding that Walder Frey is at you’re going to die. I don’t care if it was my own wedding, if I saw that guy I’m running for the hills. If they find this guy with a knife in his back in some dumpster, you know who to question first.
Jim Ross’s commentary paired with non wrestling things continues to be the greatest videos on the internet, especially when the non wrestling things are something as awesome as Game of Thrones. “The caskets on fire! The caskets on fire!”.
It’s MLB All Star week, so we decided to cater our monster blog to one of the more exciting competitions: Home Run Derby. A sometimes forgotten but key element in the Home Run Derby is the man assigned to pitch to each participant. Sometimes they’re the player’s dad, sometimes they’re the player’s coach; what the Average Nobodies might lack in baseball skill and overall strength we make up for in creativity. That’s why we pulled out the big guns for our Home Run Derby pitchers:
This one was kind of a no brainer for me. I see the ball better off of righties, and Mo Vaughn was the greatest hitter with a dirty man’s beard of all time. Chances are Mo won’t throw too many strikes, but I’m a bad ball hitter so it ain’t no thing. My overall fear of not knowing where Mo is going to throw the ball will help me hit the most home runs possible. Not because it will motivate me, but because I’ll be defending my body and face against insane wildness. Also, “The Hit Dog” is one of my favorite baseball nicknames of all time, and any time you can bring an old school Sox player with you to the All Star game you have to do it. If I had 10 choices for who my pitcher would be, I’d pick Mo Vaughn ten times.
Randy “The Big Unit” Johnson
The guy feeding me the ball would have to be my favorite pitcher of all-time, Randy Johnson. Being a big guy with a strong left arm, Randy and I can relate. Even though he’s “big” in the fact that he’s tall and I’m “big” because I eat way too much Taco Bell; and the fact that he has a strong left arm because he’s was a MLB pitcher and I have a strong left arm because…well…other things. Even with those differences i’ve always had a connection with Randy. Even my nickname on my high school swim team was “The Big Unit”! Don’t ask me how I got it, because I actually still don’t get it. Tell me for one second that staring down the barrel of that mustache and mullet wouldn’t give me the strength to blast 100 balls into the cheap seats.
It’s better than nothing, right? RIGHT? When Sting tweeted 7.14.14 last week everyone got in an uproar that he’d be debuting on Raw and yada, yada, yada. The fact is he’s in his mid 50’s, and if he’s ever going to wrestle in the WWE it’ll probably be a short program from the Royal Rumble to WrestleMania, where he officially retires. Other than that, I’m not interested in him stealing the spotlight from an Ambrose, Rollins, Cesaro, Wyatt character. His impact on the business is set in stone, and a WWE run isn’t going to change anything. I’m glad he’s in the new video game, and I’m glad he’s finally signed with WWE, but let’s leave it at that. I will say it was awesome when the entire orchestra turned around and they all were all wearing Sting face paint. And if he comes back with a bat and beats the shit out of John Cena, all bets are off.
The cast of ‘Girl Meets World’ threw out the first pitch at the Dodgers game last night, and I’m definitely not going to spend my whole summer re-watching ‘Boy Meets World’ because I miss it so much. Anyway, an important revelation came out of last night’s first pitch: Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga, is still smoking hot. She did a Maxim spread last year that was probably my favorite thing ever, and to see her again last night solidified the fact that she’s in the middle of one of the longest primes of all-time. Topanga Lawrence’s is my generation’s TV crush, so my opinion may be biased, but you can’t deny the photographic evidence of her insane hotness.
That’s a solid 15 years of greatness, and she’s only 33. With her genes and the advancement in modern science, I could see her continuing this trend for another 10-15 years. Show me someone who wasn’t in love with Topanga Lawrence and I’ll show you a piece of shit liar. It’s as simple as that.
The TV God’s giveth and the TV God’s taketh away. The almost three month stretch of amazing, incredible [insert any other adjective here] television is slowly coming to an end now that the summer is pretty much officially here. On Sunday, Game of Thrones had their season four finale, wrapping up easily the best season of the series. Last night, Louie finished up it’s newest season on FX, and if last year was any indication, we probably won’t see him again until 2025. Tonight is the season one finale of my favorite new show, Fargo. That these three awesome television shows all end within three days is a cruel, cruel punishment. I’m spending the rest of the summer in my dark place until television rights and wrong and brings more fantastic TV in the fall.
