Couldn't care less about the mods as I'd never use them (although Monk, this could be the thing people use who fire the MIDA way faster than it actually fires), but do want them for the paddles. Of the Destiny PVP's, I've always respected TrueVanguard's play the most because he's one of the only well known competitive players who doesn't use a Scuf controller. Granted he's comfortable at doing the "claw," and well I'll never be able to play the game like that regardless of how much I practice trying to claw.
So if you can't claw, might as well join the darkside to get that advantage. The paddles can be mapped to specific buttons, so I could jump and not have to take my thumb off the right thumb stick. I use Puppeteer setting anyway, so combined with this the only time I'd need to take my thumb off the stick would be to reload. I'd have jump (X) assigned to the right paddle, and switch weapons (triangle) assigned to the left paddle.
Still undecided, but definitely leaning towards it.

PWS is fairly credible. Believe it's ran by a guy who used to do wrestling stuff for TMZ.
Agreed, not a fan of any purchase. Would like to see them license the show to put on the Network, or even past ROH events/DVD's, but wouldn't want them to buy the promotion. Definitely want to see the Network grow to become a true wrestling network though, as it'd be a win-win for everyone.

Another solid show.
Alberto/EC3 was pretty good. Like that LAX is back, although it's a shame that Hernandez isn't part of it. Enjoying heel Cody Rhodes a lot too. Got a very Macho Man/Elizabeth thing going there between Cody and Brandi.
Also, while Pope and Josh Matthews still suck (especially Matthews trying to be a heel), the commentary was much better tonight. They had the decency to tone down the bickering between JB and Matthews. Still wish they'd just go back to Tenay/West with JB as the ring announcer and in-ring interviewer.
And it needs to be said, I really wish they'd ditch the six sided ring. That's one of the main things I had hoped for with new owners, but doesn't seem like it's going to happen. And for goodness sake, get a new X-Division title. That thing needs to be thrown in a garbage can and made into a little cubed paperweight. By far the ugliest title a "major" promotion has ever had (them old titles don't count).

Currently playing this for review. Comes out March 28th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One (in both physical and digital format). Had never heard of it until I received an email about it, and it looked intriguing enough.
The review is embargoed until the 28th, so I can't really give a detailed impressions of it.
As you can see in the video, it's essentially Diablo. That's not a totally fair comparison, I mean it's not a clone. Made by a small French team, obviously don't have the resources of a Blizzard. But it'll be very familiar for anyone who has played Diablo.
It's got some wrinkles in there. I'm still pretty early (chapter 3), but some worlds have an Exposure element to worry about. I've seen the ice world, but there's also a poison one and a fire one. In the ice world, when you're not standing near a camp fire, your exposure meter goes up. Once it gets up all the way, you're slowed down and you start losing health and if you don't get to a camp fire you'll freeze to death (camp fires are pretty generous though, I only got to the freezing point once and didn't lose a lot of health because of it).
I like Norse Mythology and Vikings, so of course it appealed to me. You can play as a male (Warrior, stronger) or a female (Shieldmaiden, faster). There aren't really Diablo style classes. There are 7 gods you can be devoted to that act like the classes, but you can switch between them. I picked Thor from the start and have been wielding a big hammer, but the last two bosses I faced I switched over to a bow (which is a weapon type of a different god) simply because I've found the bosses to be much easier with a ranged attack.
Lacks four player co-op, and even local co-op, but does have two player online co-op.

Good episode of NXT tonight.
Sanity is one of the best things going, like everything about them. Really hope they stay together for a good while and eventually get called up to the main roster together, and hopefully Smackdown at that. Think they'd be great on Smackdown. Nikki Cross is fantastic and given the opportunity would be big on the main roster. Always liked her a lot when I saw her in SHIMMER and SHINE.
Takeover: Orlando is looking like it'll be better than WrestleMania.

I know Sand said he was going to watch it, but I hope the rest of you guys either watched the ROH 15th Anniversary PPV event tonight or can catch it later.
GREAT event. Easily the best PPV from an American based promotion this year.
Really loved the main event between Christopher Daniels and Adam Cole. Daniels has long been a favorite of mine, so I was quite happy to see him FINALLY capture a world championship after some 24 years wrestling. I hate the chant, but he definitely deserves it.
I assume Adam Cole is on his way out. He'll be in WWE, but I think he'll have an extended stay in NJPW before gets there. Omega/Cole will be great when it happens in NJPW.
Really enjoyed the hell out of the Hardy's/Young Bucks/RPG Vice street fight too. Wild brawl. Shame Impact Wrestling management is being douchebags and wouldn't let the Hardy's do the Broken gimmick. Really fun match.
Lethal/Fish and Scurll/Rush were also really good matches.
Didn't care so much for the six man tag featuring Bully Ray teaming with the Briscoes. The match itself was fine, but that's not how to use Bully Ray. That was Bubba Ray Dudley doing his nostalgia act in WWE a year ago.

Was a pretty good show.
The only real downside continues to be the commentary. JB is a good addition, but man Pope and Matthews are the absolute worst and the constant bickering between JB/Josh was grating and distracting away from the matches.
If you can't get JR, just bring back Tenay and Don West.
TNA name is gone, Jeff Jarrett and Dutch Mantel are back in power.
Several debuting talents tonight, including a former WWE Champion.
Also, best thing that has happened to Impact Wrestling in a long time, they FINALLY have a decent website. It's slow right now, but man at least it is functional and doesn't look that bad. A billion times better than that abomination they've had for the past year plus.
^ Four big matches, and I don't care about a single one. Beyond tired of seeing WrestleMania's top matches be dominated by part timers.
Orton/Wyatt should be good.
Triple Threat RAW women's match / Every woman available Smackdown match / Andre Battle Royal / At least three team RAW tag team championship match = Don't care. Yes Bayley/Charlotte/Sasha will be great, but we saw it last year only with Becky in place of Bayley.
I'm tired of multi person matches just to get people on the card.
Has Lesnar or Goldberg increased ratings at all? Have they actually sold any network subscriptions (considering how easy it is to get a free month)? I don't think so, at least not enough to warrant it. What exactly is the value in either of them? And Shane McMahon too for that matter. He was fine last year against Taker, but who sat around and thought people would want to see Shane McMahon wrestle again and to waste AJ Styles on it. AJ has been the WWE's MVP for 2016, and he gets rewarded with a match against Shane McMahon?

With the news that nothing will carry over from Destiny to Destiny 2 (save for character appearance), I've been freed from the Destiny grind.
I don't anticipate playing it a lot going forward, simply because I've lost the desire to further grimoire, don't care to get a decently rolled Eyasluna or Imago Loop anymore, and stockpiling Motes of Light would just be a waste of time as I doubt I'll touch Destiny too much once Destiny 2 comes out.
I want to do Wrath of the Machine hard mode before Age of Triumph, but other than that there really isn't anything left. I'll be playing it quite a bit once Age of Triumph begins at the end of the month and that'll probably last for a couple of weeks (my playing it, not the content itself as it is an event that ends after a set time).
So being freed from that has opened up my backlog. These are the games I'll be going back to or starting, with my goal being to beat each one and possibly review them before Destiny 2.
- Stardew Valley - Farcry Primal (playing now, absolutely loving it) - Watch Dogs 2 - Just Cause 3 - Bloodborne - Skyrim Remaster - Elder Scrolls Online - Neverwinter (iffy) - Warframe (on a an alt account to completely start fresh) - Battlefront - Mad Max - The Witcher 3 - Sniper Elite 3
Also need to work in some WWE and I'll probably be picking up Mass Effect Andromeda.

Looking forward to those impressions Monk.
I still don't have any interest in it personally. If I had a lot of interest in the Zelda game I'd probably just pick it up for Wii U. I'll have more interest in the Switch once we see exactly what Nintendo does with it after the already announced games come out.
I want to believe in and support Nintendo, but they burned me pretty good with the Wii U as a day one adopter of it and so I'll be taking a long wait and see with this.
