    Live sports is supposed to be the last thing that TV can show that's DVR proof.
    Of course, NBC didn't exactly figure out the "live" part.

    To quote the great American philosopher Betty White "I'm rooting for the crocodile, I hope he swallows these guys whole."

    As long as this causes some MS-class firesales on the older model, it's cool. Expecting the Slim to slide into the US$299 price point with the Neo being $399 (or roughly ten billion Canadian) though.

    NBC has the exclusive in the US until something like 2034, though. Hopefully geo-block evasion tech gets really good by 2018.
    Also, if there isn't a giant mecha in the Tokyo opening ceremonies I'm going to be highly disappointed. Might swing the trip anyway because the time difference means I'd have to stay up all night to watch stuff (and it's true for the next three games: South Korea, Japan and China are hosting in a row.)

    Good thing Brazil won the gold in soccer, or I'm pretty sure the Olympic torch would've been hijacked.
    Barring tonight's track events (we're strong in the women's 800m) looks like Canada will finish with the most medals ever at an Olympics that weren't boycotted (tied with Atlanta) and somewhere around 11th in overall medals. Hopefully we can turn a few of the bronze into gold in Tokyo.

    Sadly, my copy of the 2016 Game of the Year has decided to come via melting ice cube (when I paid for Express shipping, but that's another story) so I won't see it until early next week.
    USGamer's impressions are pretty positive, from what I can tell.

    No, but that's a decent price for a somewhat, shall we say, divisive game. (On my podcast, I've threatened to pull it out as a counter game for something really bad.)
    Leaning toward Aegis of Earth, the best damn Evangelion knockoff strategy game on the PlayStation Vita.

    Wrestling itself was huge in the late 90s and the N64 games were really good (especially compared to the early Smackdown games). They had a really wild creation system in the WWF games, and the grapple system was easy to learn which let you pull off big moves easily.

    Way to go on sweeping the women's 100m hurdles, btw. First time in Olympic history.
    As for Canada, we're apparently really good at getting high, and we're developing a bromance with Usain Bolt. Hope it carries over to tomorrow night's 200m final.

    I've got it now as well. There's some unique things on there (M&L Paper Jam, Mario Maker, Xenoblade Chronicles X) as well.

    Shame that Wrestlemania 2000 would be a licensing nightmare (the shambling corpse of THQ, 2k, WWE) - for my money you can't really do a N64 worldwide without an AKI game, and it's the only one that doesn't have Lord Voldemort in it.

    Casual Swansea City fan checking in because I find it funny England's Premier League has a Welsh side in it.
    Hoping for something better than midtable this year.

    Apparently if the game shipped in September, it was "cancel your preorder" bad. Not sure what two months is going to do to fix ten+ years of complete incompetence, but it's not my money.
