2020.09.27 11:43 Vermarine21 Miraculous New York Reflections

Bonjour everyone! You know a year and two months ago I joined this subreddit in part because I wanted to get some things off my chest about the season 3 finale. Since then I've been a very occasionally sharing some creative thoughts taking in some interesting fun facts and just generally waiting with anticipation for the fourth season of miraculous ladybug with you all. And now that the lava way New York special has air specifically taking place between seasons 3 and season 4, I think it's only apropos that I do my own very first reflection of a miraculous episode.

Let me start off by saying that this Special, while maybe not perfect, was pretty good bordering on great for what it was. Actually taking place at a specific point in continuity as opposed to just being a self contained one and done(more on that later) lent this Special quite a bit of context, motivation, tension, and familiarity that bridges the gap between two seasons while making it clear that these characters are leaving there own preoccupied world and entering a whole other. There are a number of brief yet significant scenes where the show's many major recurring characters and even some of the supporting ones have a bit of spotlight that reminds you of their stake in the story and swiftly sets the tone for where they are will go in season 4.

Is Ms. Bustier married? I actually had to check to see if she is indeed a Miss rather than a Mrs since her not being able to go on the trip has to do with her being pregnant, which obviously takes two. It really makes you wonder if we'll get a Ladybug baby shower episode or something, if not a conflict themed around the delivery.

Ms. Mendeleev is placed in charge of chaperone duties for the trip in what almost seemed like it was going to be a fourth/fifth subplot for the special. It seems like she may ease up a bit on the strictness, given that she seemed genuinely affected by the student's disappointment at her inclusion and even agreed to swap seats with Marinette when they spoke up on her behalf. A bit surprised she didn't catch on to the party at some point, though and she kinda disappears for the rest of the run.

Lila ends up being the only classmate staying in Paris, possibly due to her mom either still being under the impression the school is akumatized or not allowing her to go too far without her in general. Also, am I crazy or was she the one person who didn't seem moved by Ms. Bustier's announcement? Considering what happens halfway through the special, I can't help but wonder if she's gonna have legitimate ammo against the heroes next season in addition to the seeds planted among the school.

Interesting that Chloe didn't want to go to New York, only to almost certainly be made to do so by her parents(who probably want the Hotel to themselves). I honestly can't think of a reason for that beyond her just not wanting to deal with anyone right now after what happened with Ladybug and Hawkmoth; it's never touched on either, as she joins Ms. Mendeleev in ducking out. It's abruptness is clearly setting the stage for her slippage in Season 4.

Mr. Damocles really has been of a more genial air since his akuma episode and even seems less inclined to fear the Mayor, though that could also be because he had already spoken to him prior to Chloe's objection. Also, he had one of the funnier moments in the special with the Heroes on the plane.

Kagami shows up for almost literally half a minute fencing with Adrien, remarking that it's not fun besting him when he's "weak" and kissing him goodbye for the day. Whoo? She seemed unaware/indifferent of the trip, so maybe we'll get a brief follow-up of him not showing up the following day or so.

Nathalie is bedriden, but decidedly not dead/slumbering. Not only that, but she can apparently still use the fixed Peacock with seemingly no strings attached. The implications of this is...good for her[fans], but not for the heroes.

Gabriel mentioned keeping an eye on Adrien--what was that about? His subplot is fittingly the most direct bit of plot in the special, as his suspicions about there being other Miraculouses sets up future specials and seasons, but that line amidst using Marinette's convincing to elude Adrien's notice seemed out of place. Especially since he does next to nothing of the sort beyond sending his limo to pick him up after the first attack.

Adrien's bodyguard turns out to be fearful of airplane flying and as such manages to spend the entire special listening to a soothing audio therapy, completely unawares of any of the excitement that takes place.

Luka has a brisk thematic appearance getting Marinette onto the bus taking the class to the airport using his bike, suggesting that New York will be a chance to clear the air on how to move forward. I do like how this loosely implies he is touching base with her more often than before and yiu'd be lying if I said it contributed less than Kagami's scene did--especially with a lowkey but important callback prior to the final act.

This is technically a part of the New York stuff, but it's going here: Sabrina with the hookup! 😀 Ch'yeah, completely unexpected by the checkoff, it seems that Sabrina might just have established a long distance relationship with one of the Americans that adds to something I'll get into later. In general, the special through her a bit of a bone similar to Ms. Bustier and Mendeleev, which makes a bit more sense when we've had that interview about her getting development in Season 4 for a while now. If I can make a minor point bordering on pickiness here, part of me kinda wishes we got a little more on that and/or that guy was a tad less generic--barring the chance he isn't named in the credits, his design seemed ironically grounded in a show has such few African descending characters to begin with.

Getting to the meat of the American plot, it too sets the tone for a number of things about the mythology and provides some brief contrasts amidst its personal ensemble that I suspect with become more relevant as the show continues, both for obvious reasons and a few subtler ones. Marinette, Adrian, Gabriel, Aeon, and Jesse are the principal stars of this special, with Alya, Olympia, Barb, and Techno Pirate also being important supporting players; this means much of the stakes are based around Marinette and Adrian's bridging friendship, Ladybug and Cat Noir's trust in each other's abilities, Majestia, Knight Owl, Uncanny Valley, and Sparrow's intervention into their worthiness as heroes, and Hawkmoth's investigation about the Miraculouses' influence on world history.

Getting it out the way because it's the heart I normally don't care about, Marinette and Adrien's connection is... oddly balance in this episode. Getting it out the way, I must say that Marinette doesn't come across quite as trifling as the preview clip made her look: her freudian slips about husbands, babies, and staring in his eyes were confirmed tk the first their of the special and most of the other stuff are her reacting to unexpected compromises that she tries to stay away from. It's actually Adrien who almost seems dtc abroad, what with joining her for a beautiful sunset(when everyone else is asleep, mind) at the back of the plane, getting into fairly small spaces with her, and getting close to each other at least three times; I know half of that were accidents and he was honoring their being good friends, but how do you justify him ending up literally on top of her in the hotel and staying there regardless of how hilarious that gag was? (No, but for real though, those scene got funnier as the episode went on.)

Getting to the superhero elements here, Ladybug leaves Chat Noir in charge of protecting Paris with a button meant to summon her in case of an emergency. Now aside from the inevitable anger at him leaving his post to show up in New York, I thought this was going to be a total non-issue, especially since we know hot moth was going to be in New York as well. Boy, were we wrong about that! In fact, we were so wrong that so much justified tension between them causes something horrible to happen for a bit in New York, resulting in Chat Noir relinquishing Plagg out of guilt and Adrien being pulled from the trip to be privately flown back home. It's thanks to the intervention of Uncanny Valley that the two come back together, recognize how much they mean to each other as teammates, and join her and Sparrow in saving not only Paris, but New York's heroes as well.

Hate to break up the pacing, but I guess I got include them somewhere: the GOAT Alya has a role to play...oh, and Nino's there too. Somewhat fed up with Marinette being unable to clarify how she feels about Adrian already, the two decide to do their own Operation New York mission in order to gently convince the two to get together already. They end up feeling like the closest thing to an audience surrogate in a Special that kind of feels like a collective saving throw in general; of particular note is getting Jesse to play the song from Chloe's apology party while the two dance above the hotel roof(makes sense in context) and Alya coming back into form by directly asking Marinette to decide if she really wants Adrien to leave or not, prompting her to attempt to chase after the limo on a bike. A bit of a shame she didn't get to meet her original heroine in person, but ah well.

The American Heroes were generally alright, if a bit negligible C-plot characters aside from maybe Uncanny Valley; after her, Sparrow was an okay-whatever counterpart to her who I guess was supposed to be the cool one, Doorman was a funny "wth is he doing here" side hero, and Knight Owl was Batman lite to Majestia's Superman for a select few minutes. There were a number of other Heroes on the team with them, but most of them were breezed aside background characters or at least akuma victims who go by so fast that they are not really worth hitting on them right now. Despite how little there is to/of them in screentime, there are a few things that might be worth noting about the main four in implication that justifies splitting them up for convenience.

Aeon and Jesse take the lead being assigned to observe Marinette and Adrien as members of their peer group while debating how their approach could stand to stray from their mentor's guidelines, hoping to gauge the two's closeness in tandem with their capabilities. The dynamic between the two, while not the strongest thing given they're both new and what screentime they have, did a decent job of carrying their scenes and showing how the influence each other in slightly untraditional ways: Jesse is the spicy one with an attitude, but she generally sticks to orders beyond minor bits of alleviating her boredom, while Aeon is surprisingly the one more comfortable with using Majestia's own motto as an excuse to deviate from the plan despite somewhat literally being the Data/Spock of the duo. Ultimately, these two just seek to help Ladybug and Chat Noir while breaking from their mentor's dependence a bit.

Easily the biggest takeaway from this special has to do with how the Miraculouses do have their blind spots that need to be kept in mind--and dramatically so. The long-term Wham of the special comes when Mayura unexpectedly strikes in Paris using a Sentimonster of Robostus--this not only shows that Nathalie is decidedly not down for the count, but it establishes a clear limit in that Ladybug needs to be present so she can defeat the supervillains and use her Magic Ladybugs as quickly as possible to repair the damage they cause. These massive implications stand to raise the stakes in the future as Hawkmoth really can't be ignored during any globetrotting or else the havoc he reeks can't be undone; it also means that Ladybug and Chat Noir's absence will likely have lingering consequences going into the next season, as they weren't there to protect or possibly even save a few people.

Barb and Olympia somewhat function as parental figures who end up coming down on the younger heroes a bit when Ladybug and Chat Noir come across as a borderline lethally duo, demanding their Miraculouses with the intention of confiscating them for the rest of their stay and putting their two "daughters"(?) on the sidelines since they deliberately strayed from their instructions and got caught in the crossfire. They ultimately spend the rest of the special as either victims of the Miraculous wielding akuma or heavy support that indeed end the battles quickly not long after joining them. Also, I'll touch in another aspect of this later, but peculiar how the two big heroes of New York seem to have daughters who appear to be Hispanic/Navajo and African American, respectively, while spending an almost inseparable amount of time together.

Hawkmoth maintains his Magnificent Bastard status in traveling to New York in secret, recruiting an actual supervillain, and claiming the Miraculous on display unimpeded, all to confirm and test a theory regarding the existence of other Miraculouses that have indeed had an impact on history just as Alya theorized. The talon worn by Gilbert de Motier did in fact turn out to be the Eagle Miraculous with the Kwami Liiri, which he then gives to the already successful Techno Pirate as part of a plan to draw out all of the heroes to reek more havoc and maybe acquire Ladybug and Chat Noir's Miraculouses while they're in New York. Though this fails and he somewhat surprisingly doesn't keep the Eagle, he ultimately didn't need to--he got the knowledge he really came for, possibly shook the faith in superheroes for a bit, and now intends to travel the world in search of other lost Miraculouses in future seasons/specials.

The special's akuma of the day comes in the form of Mike Rochip aka Techno Pirate, an actual supervillain vaguely resembling Savage Dragon with a thin pirate dialect and an inclination towards stealing technologies for himself. This guy manages to be both an unwitting small time pawn in Hawkmoth's game(being tied up in a bathtub at his mercy and being genuinely confused as he's being rearrested) and yet a look at how legitimately devastating a real supervillain can be. Highlights stealing a turbine off of the plane containing almost all of the teenage cast, nearly killing Uncanny Valley numerous times, and notably being nonchalant in asking whether Hawkmoth would rather have an atomic bomb. His akumatized form Technolizer gained Doc Ock like arms that only ramped up his technopath powers and made him more destructive with minimal attention on his part and he even gets upgraded into Miraclonizer using the Eagle Miraculous's Liberation, which similar to Hawkmoth's akumatization allows the user to free people of their fetters so they can accomplish things they wouldn't have been able to willingly. Heck, it wouldn't surprise me if the missile strike plan at the end, which Hawkmoth notes could start a cold war by breaking the peace between America and France, was his suggestion given he personally counted down to its launch for joy.

Uncanny Valley(lol love that name, btw) was the sweet android loosely reminiscent of Vision, with a rather cute civilian design to contrast her creepy true form; Aeon is an AI created by Majestia who acts her daughter with an cloaked third eye with projection capabilities. While this "future fav' girl" might not be the greatest thing since Camembert, she is the most memorable of the new characters given her memorable designs, quirked if lowkey nature, and interesting origin that kinda begs for more. She also logically reinforces the notion that Kwami's can't be recorded by being unable to see or even hear Plagg, which makes sense given her eyes are basically cameras.

Anyone else get inklings of LGBT symbolism out of the other main Heroes Aeon? Knight Owl and Sparrow are very male passing heroes who are revealed to be a part of a legacy that they were trying to keep alive until Eagle's part in defeating of Techclonizer caused Jesse to reveal the truth about her gender. This even extends to Olympia and Barb herself, who noticeably corrects Jesse referring to them all as heroines and briefly leans on the former in a loving way after deciding it's time to let the masquerade come to an end.

And now for my final point, let's address about the setting in general: We're coming back to New York at some point. Even putting aside the obvious resourcefulness of producing this many assets for a one off Special, there are too many hooks and implications among them that suggest the heroes will keep in touch. The French American Friendship Week framing device kinda underscores all the actual evidence by being a legitimate link between the Miraculous Team of Paris and the American Heroes of New York.

It is mentioned early on that not only are the heroes well known, but that the public is well aware of most of their identities due to how much a part of American life they are; the Doorman in particular gives tours at the museum, entertains his many fans, and remembers to use his powers for the purpose getting others to safety. This is in sharp contrast to the Miraculous Wielders, who per the greater good and simple pragmatism have to keep their identities a secret less they lose their Miraculous to the Order of the Guardians or Hawkmoth.

Hot Dog Dan, the costumed vendor who shows up to the rooftop party at the hotel, serves two functions in his brief appearance. One is back up Alya mentioning how there's a hero for everything in New York since he basically flies in using balloons to what was supposedly a secret party and the other comes in the form of his magic hotdogs that each come with a particular temporary side effect. This is effectively establishes a more readily accessible version of the Spellbook's powerup recipes, which could allow side characters without a Miraculous to get in on the action without needing a hero or villain identity.

So many supers being commonplace to one notorious locale means that there is an entire League of Superheroes that the main four are a part of--even the friggin Mayor Hombee goes from sternly staring into your soul for a national press conference to suiting up seconds after to declare they will stop Technolizer and Hawkmoth, which got a laugh out of me. Again, the mere fact that we see a decent amount of this guys not get to do much suggests that we'll likely get to see them again at some point. For example, you know that Ice Heroine who had a part of her model shared through social media on the way to this getting a release date? Shows up in the background of like two scenes without a namedrop as far as I remember and never actually gets a scene.

Jesse is the American hero who gets the closest thing to an arc that not only sees her branch out of her mother's(?) wing, but also gives her a blink and you miss it connection to the greater mythos. Getting the superficial meta stuff out of the way for the few who might not know, Sparrow is one of the original three Quantic Kids from the earliest concepts of the show and thus her(originally his) can be seen as a canon immigrant precursor of what could have been Team Miraculous. With that said, I would like to point out how Eagle could very well reappears in the future for a good number of other reasons that may prove crucial to not only the character, but the plot as well. First, recall that the talon was dormant in the museum ever since Gilbert used it in the American Revolution, with Liiri being unaware that he's long dead for centuries. Next, Gabriel himself greeted Liiri to float about being correct as opposed to remaining as Hawkmoth using his Butterfly Miraculous, something we know he is entirely capable of and, spoilers, will do in season 4. As the cherry on top, Jesse and Aeon, who were very aware of who Ladybug and Chat Noir were from the jump, are now in possession from very Eagle Miraculous that Liiri is bonded to. I'll let you go past the equal sign....

And at the very end of the special was an undeniable indication of things to come: while watching over the celebration of the city from the rooftops, Eagle and Uncanny Valley are approached by none other than a Guardian! Reminiscent of an Native American chieftain himself, he asks that they surrender their Miraculous to his Miracle Box without any trouble, but seems to respond to Jesse's suggestion that they work together to protect New York with a smile. This is something that's been set to happen since Ladybug destroyed Feast--the Order of the Guardians have been restored alongside their temple, plucked from disappearing in a different time, and now they're beginning to venture into this whole new world with the perogative of reclaiming the Miraculouses. Assuming he agreed to help the American Heroes, his approval could serve as stark contrast to that of the Guardian who will inevitably come to Paris to clean up the remnants of Master Fu's decisions.

Here are a few bonus jots/musings that I took while watching:

The music in this special primarily invokes an Avengers feel, while Chat Noir noticeably bounces back with what sounds like a Patriotic rendition of his own Claws Out theme. This can awesomely silly or overly epic depending on how you look at it.

The episode proper starts with Mr. Pigeon taking off into space on the Eiffel, causing Cosmo Bug and Astro Cat to hand him his 51th defeat.

Did we see that flower color conversion before or am I just misremembering? The point about yellow representing friendship in particular rings a bell and I'm not talking about Chat Noir's.

Everyone was weirdly pitched down in this special, as confirmed through squeaky Tikki almost sounding like a normal person and Nino sounding nothing like himself. I thought they were going for everyone getting older even if it wouldn't make sense at first, but it sounds like the entire special received this effect for some reason. Perhaps one day, someone can make an edit where the characters sound normal.

It seems the impetus for the school trip was the entire class making student film narrated by Kim around George Washington and Marquis de Lafayette, which kinda evoke a bit of Ho Yay through the sock puppets attempting to hug looking more like make outs and the line about "no boundaries" being suspiciously timed. I actually had to do double take at student names in the credits

I just noticed Ms Mendeleev has calculus symbols on her shirt.

Principal Damocles is huge! I know the scale of character proportions has always been anime Polly Pocket to peculiar Pixar monstrocity, but he's about as big as the fucking airplane seat. Not wonder Marinette, who's pretty tiny in one herself, caught a tight spot when he managed to fall asleep and eventually over holdin a movie bucket of popcorn.

Anyone else thought Jesse was gonna sing when she came with the guitar and especially once Alya asked her if she knew a song?

Not sure I like the two's shrunken eyed brunette ala Beware the Batman and younger white Madea look as civilians though.

Once again, Marinette and Adrien end up detransforming on the back foot with a sewer wall between them.

Am I the only one who had small flip out when Uncanny Valley broke into Gabriel's jet to get Chat Noir back in the game?

Remind me, what was so significant about the Statue of Liberty that the key had to be kept in the Eiffel Tower?

2020.09.27 05:21 raphaellaskies Lyon Sisters - lingering questions

I just finished reading Mark Bowden's book The Last Stone, which follows the 2013 investigation into the 1975 disappearance of the Lyon sisters and the subsequent conviction of Lloyd Lee Welch. Welch, who had approached the police in 1975 to give a statement that he had seen "a man with a tape recorder" talking to the girls shortly before they disappeared, plead guilty to their kidnapping and murder in 2017. At the time, he was already in prison for molesting his girlfriend's daughter, and several other women who lived in the area at the time of the disappearance came forward to say that Welch had also approached them at Wheaton Plaza (the mall from which the girls had gone missing.) The basement of Welch's old house lit up when examined with luminol, but the blood samples were too degraded to test. Beyond that, and a piece of wire (which might have come from Sheila Lyon's glasses) that was found on another Welch family property, there is no direct evidence connecting Lloyd Lee Welch to the disappearance.
Welch is undeniably a piece of work, and so are most of his family members; testimony from the extended Welch family consistently claims that sexual abuse and incest were common practice among Lloyd's parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Based on his conversations with police, he also appears to be a pathological liar. His confessions - made over the course of months of interviews - followed this trajectory:

Each new piece of the confession was made in response to information the detectives gave him. Whenever he was confronted with an inconsistency, he altered his story to fit the narrative the detectives presented. (His cousin couldn't have been there? Oh, well it wasn't his cousin then - it was his uncle.) Some of this narrative, incidentally, was made up wholesale - detectives told him that they had a diary belonging to his late wife which implicated him. No such diary existed. They were also careful to steer him in a different direction whenever he asked whether or not he needed a lawyer, repeatedly assured him that he was not a suspect and could not be held accountable for acts he had only witnessed (untrue), and assured him that he could be granted immunity (also untrue.) None of what they did was technically illegal (only one of the interviews was thrown out in court) but it does call his confession into some doubt. With his long track record of lying and the detectives continually massaging his statements until they had a confession, how reliable can any of his statements be?
Strong circumstantial evidence points to Lloyd Lee Welch being involved in the disappearance of the Lyon sisters, if not being the main perpetrator. But the lack of solid evidence in the case worries me. His court-appointed lawyers had him plead guilty, assuming (probably correctly) that their client was such an unappealing figure, arguing his innocence in front of a jury would be a fruitless endeavour. But Lloyd's general lack of moral fibre doesn't account for the complete lack of physical evidence, or the conflicting statements he gave, or the fact that his family contained a good half-dozen violent child molesters, all of whom could easily have been the perpetrator. Lloyd, being the only one stupid enough - or easily manipulated enough - to confess is the only one who's gone down for the crime.

2020.09.27 04:31 uwutulu History of the university yaoi epidemic of 2020 (Repost)

This is an unformatted repost of the timeline that former user u/smilehacks compiled June-July 2020. You can see the removed post here: https://www.removeddit.com/uwaterloo/comments/hjbmhb/recap_part_2_for_those_who_are_confused/
Check the above post for the external links!
——————————————————————————————————-
TL:DR
Shipping two of the biggest rival universities and making yaoi of it gave birth to this new age on the subreddit North American Post-Secondary Education system. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US IS GOING TO HELL.
The story so far:
April 23rd, 2020 u/uwutulu makes the first uWaterloo-related yuri. (Post)
June 24th, 2020 u/alyssnya's started posting daily artwork of department anime girls on uWaterloo. (Post)
June 27th, 2020 u/uoftxwaterloo makes a post shipping both universities together on both university subreddits, with the post on UofT being removed. (Post) This prompts u/uwutulu to make (the first?) yaoi art of UofT x uWaterloo, which blew up. (Post)
June 28th, 2020 This leads to a golden age on both subreddits, consisting of high quality: Campus/Department/Program Anime Girls, including parodies and edits. Rule 34 UofT x uWaterloo Yaoi/Yuri Fan fiction of said ship (Post) Comics/4komas This age/revolution/whatever you want to call it has been met with great criticism and confusion (you can check uWaterloo for plenty of examples). Yaoi posts/talk from UofT and uWaterloo subreddits has been circulating on other Ontario universities + McGill University.
June 29th, 2020 uWaterloo changed their banner to u/alyssnya's anime girls. Carleton x uOttawa is a thing now thanks to u/imgonnagonowbye. (Post) McGill debates which university to hook up with. (Post)
June 30th, 2020 Ryerson x YorkU is a thing now thanks to u/honeyume. (Post) Queens x Western is a thing now thanks to u/sagtag2020. (Post) u/uiuc-chan's UIUC-chan from UIUC says hi. (Post) McMaster x Guelph is a thing now thanks to u/antibioticgel. (Post) u/Tac-in-soc's Oski from Berkeley says hi too. (Post) McGill finally makes a cameo in the latest UofT x uWaterloo fanfic thanks to u/Strawberuka. (Post) UBC mods trying to ban anime /s (Post)
July 1st, 2020 uAlberta x uCalgary becomes official thanks to u/FiveBrainCells. (Post) UBC has fallen risen and UBC x SFU is made by u/UBCxSFU (Post) Sites to view fanart/lore
https://fanlore.org/wiki/Category:University_Shipping (thanks u/TheMenasaur) https://www.reddit.com/UniversityFanart/ (thanks u/cotopaxi64) https://www.reddit.com/CanadaUniSubsGoneWild/ (thanks u/cotopaxi64) Will keep you updated on future developments (send intel if you know anything I missed). Edit: Happy Canada Day! Edit 2: Mods at UofT removed it, so I guess I'll be updating this recap post here!

2020.09.27 04:03 SteveMcQueen36 Playing through the WWF - Part 4 (1989 - 1990 SummerSlam '89 - Wrestlemania VI)

I am using games like WWE2k19, 2k20, and Fire Pro Wrestling World to simulate and play through the WWF's PPV's and other events. The outcomes will be different thus forcing me to change story lines. Let me know what you think. This issue covers SummerSlam '89 to Wrestlemania VI.

WWF SummerSlam 1989 - August 28th, 1989 - East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA - Meadowlands

No. Results Stipulations Quality Times Notes
D1 Dino Bravo def. Koko B. Ware Singles match 90% 11:31 Koko B. Ware and Dino Bravo mixed it up in the Dark Match. Fans loved this one as they were still filing into the stands. Bravo has been a good heel in the past few months, working an Anti-American gimmick with the Rougeaus. These two delivered a great match. Dino wins with a Shoulder Breaker.
2 The Brain Busters (Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard) (w/Bobby Heenan) def. The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart) Tag team match 91% 28:23 The Brain Busters have been on a winning streak since their loss at Wrestlemania. Arn and Tully have set their eyes on the Tag Titles again and will go through The Hart Foundation to get them. Fans loved this opener. Arn and Bret looked so good in that ring. However, it was Tully that got the win over Jim Neidhart with a Piledriver.
3 Dusty Rhodes def. The Honky Tonk Man (w/Jimmy Hart) Singles match 100% 15:43 Dusty Rhodes exploded onto the WWF scene in 1989 embroiled in a feud with The Honky Tonk Man. Both would cut tremendous promos on each other and fans couldn't wait to see these two clash. The match itself was tremendous. Dusty and Honky bumped everywhere. Dusty even got in a little Shake, Rattle, and Roll then hit the Bionic Elbow for the 1,2,3.
4 The Red Rooster def. The Blue Blazer Singles match 97% 11:32 The Blue Blazer has started to get less-and-less popular with the crowds. Newcomer Terry Taylor may have some tricks up his sleeve. The crowd loved his character and liked seeing him beat The Blazer around the ring. Rooster picks up the win with an Arm Drag... what the hell.
5 The Rockers (Marty Jannetty and Shawn Michaels) and Tito Santana def. The Fabulous Rougeaus (Jacques Rougeau and Raymond Rougeau) and Rick Martel Six-man tag team match 87% 14:58 Strike Force is no more! I know everyone is sad about that. But I couldn't be happier! Rick Martel turned on Tito Santana and joined the Canadian Contingent with Dino Bravo and The Rougeaus. Tito is, again, trying to get back into a baby face role with the help of the very over Rockers. But Tito sucks. And of course he wins this match for the faces. Tito and The Rockers go over the Canadian Contingent with a Flying Forearm from Tito onto Raymond.
6 The Ultimate Warrior (c) def. Rick Rude (w/Bobby Heenan) WWF Intercontinental Title 96% 16:50 The Ultimate Warrior and Rick Rude have been locked in a feud over the Intercontinental Title for the better part of the year. It's one of the most popular feuds in the promotion. The crowd loves seeing Warrior swinging his belt over his head when he runs to the ring. The match was another cracking good one. Warrior and Rude beat the hell out of each other. Big power move after big power move. Rude even got some air a couple of times. He even hit Warrior with a chair multiple times. But Warrior hit the Press and Splash for the win and retention of the belt.
7 Haku and The Twin Towers (Akeem and Big Boss Man) (w/Slick) def. Demolition (Ax and Smash) and Bam Bam Bigelow Six-man tag team match 85.00% 29:31:00 Slick's Twin Towers came into this match with a fire lit under their asses. Big Bossman has been waiting to put a hurting on Bam Bam Bigelow after the Royal Rumble winner dumped motor oil onto Bossman's head. Akeem and Bossman, furious, are looking to direct that anger into an opportunity for a chance at the Tag Team Titles. This match was great. Haku and both members of Demolition battled at one point. Haku is a badass. He also hit a perfect Super Kick onto Bigelow toppling the man out of the ring. But it was Big Bossman putting Smash down with the Bossman Slam. The Twin Towers would go on to win the Tag Team Titles from Demolition on Saturday Night's Main Event in September.
8 Hercules def. Greg Valentine (w/Jimmy Hart) Singles match 65% 18:44 Hercules was attacked by Rhythm and Blues after calling out Greg Valentine on The Brother Love show. The match was alright but showed flaws in the baby face Hercules. He sucks in the ring. He defeated Greg Valentine with the Full Nelson after a long match of rest holds and chokes. It was pretty bland. A concession and rest match for sure.
9 Mr. Perfect def. Ted DiBiase (w/Bad News Brown) Singles match 77% 13:09 DiBiase had tried to buy his way into a WWF Championship Match with champion Randy Savage. However, Mr. Perfect claimed that he was the next in line. Then Roddy Piper def both of them in a Three-Way Match for the #1 Contender on Saturday Night's Main Event with Hulk Hogan as the Special Guest referee. This match was not the greatest but it was a good/solid bout. Bad News Brown was involved a lot and beat up Perfect whenever he was tossed outside. DiBiase then dominated before being put down with the Perfect-Plex. The crowd loves Mr. Perfect.
Main Event Randy Savage (c) (w/Miss Elisabeth & Hogan) def. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper WWF World Heavyweight Title 88% 14:39 Roddy Piper has been a thorn in Savage's side for the past few weeks. He won his chance for the belt in a Three-Way Dance between himself, Ted DiBiase, and Mr. Perfect. Hulk Hogan was the Special Guest referee. After the match, Piper attacked Hogan with a chair, beating down the former champion. Savage came out but Piper went after him too. Declaring himself the World Champion. One of the best matches of the night. Roddy Piper was hated and got booed to oblivion. He did every dirty move in the book. And even brought a couple of weapons in the ring. Piper and Savage worked well together and Savage really showed his dominance.f Savage won a rushed match after the Flying Elbow Drop.
88% 175:00
Total Time: 2:55
This is definitely the Macho Man Era of the WWF as we "Oh Yeah!" right into another sold out event. Macho Man and Roddy Piper have been involved in a knock down drag out battle for the past few months. And he won his chance at the WWF World Heavyweight Title after defeating Mr. Perfect and Ted DiBiase in a three-way #1 Contender Match. These four competitors are very popular and talented leading the WWF into the future.
Another group of popular wrestlers, Demolition and Bam Bam Bigelow, are having a terrible time trying to defeat Slick's Crew of Akeem and The Big Bossman.

WWF Survivor Series '89 - November 23, 1989 - Rosemont, Illinois, USA - Rosemont Horizon

1 Boris Zhukov def. Paul Roma Singles match 96% 25:57 Boris Zhukov and Paul Roma battled a five-star match while the fans were still pouring in at the '89 Survivor Series. Zhukov would take the match to the outside and dominate. But Roma was clearly the better performer. These two have a lot to show the WWF and might be key players in the future. I'll hold my breath. Zhukov won after a Power Slam.
2 Punishment Crew (Big Boss Man, Akeem, Honky Tonk, and Greg Valentine) (w/Jimmy Hart & Slick) def. The Dream's Team (Dusty Rhodes, Hercules, The Red Rooster and Tito Santana) 4-on-4 Survivor Series Match 89% 48:34 "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes had a beef to settle with "The African Dream" Akeem. These two duked it out in the center of the squared circle. But it was Dusty that fell first to Akeem's might. Dusty had been reeling from the attack earlier in the week during a match with Akeem on Wrestling Challenge. Hercules held his own against Rhythm & Blues, but it was a four on one battle as Tito and Red Rooster proved to be useless. Each one taken out by Honky Tonk's Piledriver, followed by Herc eating a pin from Honky. The Punishment Crew dominates this entire match. Survivors: Akeem, Bossman, Honky, and Valentine.
3 The Heenan Family (King Kong Bundy, The Warlord, The Barbarian and Haku) (w/Mr. Fuji & Bobby Heenan) def. The 4x4s: (Jim Duggan, Ronnie Garvin, Bret Hart, and Jim Neidhart) 4-on-4 Survivor Series Match 85% 41:01 Heenan had purchased the talents of Mr. Fuji on Superstars earlier in the month. This gave his team a huge size advantage against the much smaller Hart Foundation along with Jim Duggan. Ronnie Garvin was the GOAT of this match. Taking everyone's finishers before getting knocked out on the outside of the ring. Neidhart was next being KO'ed by The Warlord, followed by Jim Duggan and then Bret Hart. A sad day for Calgary. Survivors: The Warlord and Haku
4 The Perfect Team (Mr. Perfect, Owen Hart, Jacques and Raymond Rougeau) (w/The Genius) def. Brutus' Beefcakes (Brutus Beefcake, Jim Powers, Jim Brunzel, B. Brian Blair) 4-on-4 Survivor Series Match 84% 40:27 Mr. Perfect commanded this match and made quick work out of the B-Team. The Rougeaus looked great. Raymond and Mr. Perfect were the Survivors. Mr. Perfect won the match after pinning Jim Powers with the Perfect-Plex.
5 The Hulkamaniacs (Hulk Hogan, Jake Roberts, Ax and Smash) def. Money Talks (Ted DiBiase, Bad News Brown, Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard) 4-on-4 Survivor Series Match 93% 39:21 Hulk Hogan was attacked by Ted DiBiase after a match that he had been the Special Referee of on Saturday Night's Main Event. Hogan had been away in Hollywood for a bit. But Hogan never forgot that attack. Now, DiBiase knows that Hogan is out for blood. So he hired some of the best in the business. Bobby Heenan's Brain Busters. Joined by DiBiase's personal bodyguard, Bad News Brown, Money definitely talks. The match itself was great. Hogan and DiBiase looked great in the ring. They traded a lot of blows during this match. Hitting virtually all of their moves on each other. Jake Roberts was eliminated early after an Bad News Brown Ghetto-Blaster. The Brain Busters worked over everyone, but were the next eliminated. Followed by Brown and then finally Ted DiBiase. Who lost to an assisted Piledriver from Ax. Hogan poses. Survivors: Hogan, Ax and Smash
Main Event Roddy's Reich (Roddy Piper, The Canadian Earthquake, Rick Rude, Rick Martel) def. Randy's Savages (Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty) 4-on-4 Survivor Series Match 90% 40:23 Randy Savage and Roddy Piper have been locked in a blood-feud for a few months now. Piper attacking Savage and Elizabeth at nearly any chance. Piper taunts Savage and says that Hogan isn't there for him anymore! It will be Piper standing over Savage after defeating his entire team. This match was great. Roddy Piper and Earthquake are the survivors defeating the face team. Piper stands over Randy Savage who he hit with Brass Knuckles. Piper laughs at him and takes the belt from him laughing and showing off the belt.
89% 235:43
Total Time: 3:55
Roddy Piper and Ted DiBiase are running rough shot over the WWF and not even the WWF Champion can stand in there way. Hogan got a huge ovation for returning to the ring here. That might spell trouble for Randy Savage down the line.

1 Paul Roma def. The Brooklyn Brawler Singles match 91% 29:32 This legendary dark match turned into a bloody brawl between two amazing workers. Paul Roma and The Brooklyn Brawler beat the hell out of each other as the crowds were still coming in. Most stunned by the violence in the match. Brawler broke open Roma early on. And Roma broke Brawler open on the outside. Roma won with a Sidewalk Slam and cocky pin.
2 The Brain Busters (Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard) (w/Bobby Heenan) def. The Fabulous Rougeaus (Jacques Rougeau and Raymond Rougeau) Tag team match 74% 30:00 The Brain Busters and The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers went toe to toe and delivered one hell of a match. It was another bloody affair that saw these two teams beat the hell out of each other. The Rougeaus ate two Spine busters each, but it wasn't enough to hold the duo down. Raymond delivered a wonderful splash that looked amazing. Ultimately these teams battled until the 30 Minute Time Limit.
3 Big Boss Man def. Jake Roberts Singles match 96% 16:54 The newly face turned Big Bossman has been getting tormented by the newly heeled Jake Roberts. Roberts, along with assistance from Akeem and Haku, defeated Bossman after he became a disappointment to Slick late last year. Bossman has been on an upswing in popularity after challenging Akeem and beating him on Saturday Night's Main Event. Now he puts a beating down on The Snake. This was a great match. Bossman won with a Bossman Slam.
4 The Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty) def. Demolition (Ax and Smash) (c) WWF Tag Team Titles 92% 29:23 The Rockers dethrone the WWF Tag Team Champions, Demolition, after a lengthy and well executed match. The Rockers have been shooting up the ranks in popularity lately and it's been rumored that Smash might need to take some time off for recuperation. Shawn Michaels won the match with a Flying Cross Body Pin.
5 Randy Savage (c) (w/Miss Elizabeth) def. Ted DiBiase (w/Bad News Brown) WWF World Heavyweight Title 85% 18:46 WWF Champion, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, came into this match with one intention. To shut the mouth of the Million Dollar Man once and for all. Ted DiBiase has been a thorn in Savages side since Mach picked up the belt. Their match was fantastic. DiBiase looked amazing. He took Savage to the limit. But it was Savage that won the match with a Flying Elbow Drop.
Main Event Mr. Perfect won the Royal Rumble Royal Rumble Match 71% 58:46 Mr. Perfect won the Royal Rumble last eliminating Rick Rude and The Ultimate Warrior at the same time. Mr. Perfect celebrated to a chorus of cheers and boos from the crowd. The Rumble was a good one. Hulk Hogan eliminated 11 competitors, but was thrown out by Earthquake. Perfect came in at number 20 and was pretty much the GOAT.
85% 183:21
Total Time: 3:03
Mr. Perfect cut one of the most infamous promos of all time with Mean Gene. He told the fans at home to keep watching. To keep watching if they want to see someone who's actually worthy enough to challenge for the WWF World Heavyweight Title. He challenges Randy Savage and says that he's going to bring home gold! Randy Savage got a great ovation here when he beat DiBiase. It was one of those iconic moments when he has the WWF title on one arm and Miss Elizabeth on his shoulder. The Rockers looked amazing and let's face it, Demolition was out of shape. This Crush guy is hangin' around the group backstage. It's awkward.

WWF Wrestlemania VI - April 1st, 1990 - Toronto, Ontario, Canada - Skydome

No. Results Stipulations Rating Times Notes
1 Paul Roma def. The Brooklyn Brawler Singles match 79% 17:34 This was a rematch from the bloody battle that Roma and Brawler had back during the Royal Rumble of 1990. This wasn't nearly the match they had then. Brawler was full into his Brooklyn Brawler gimmick and looked rediculious in the torn up jersey and outfit. Paul Roma looked great but proved that he can't carry a match by himself. That first match of theirs was a fluke. Roma wins with a big Backdrop.
2 Rick Martel (w/Bobby Heenan) def. Koko B. Ware Singles match 100% 19:03 Rick Martel proved that he is on another level above The Birdman, Koko B. Ware. This match had everything. Drama, Excitement, and most of all, a story that left the crowd wanting more. Martel won the match after spraying Arrogance in Koko's face and submitting him with a Boston Crab. Martel is coming for that Intercontinental Title.
3 The Glamour Girls (Leilani Kai & Judy Martin) (w/Jimmy Hart) def. The Jumping Bomb Angels (Noriyo Tateno & Itsuki Yamazaki) (c) WWF Women's Tag Team Titles 97% 15:47 The Jumping Bomb Angels took the WWF Women's Tag Team Titles to Japan and competed with them over there. Sharing time between the US and Japan. Leilani Kai had also traveled there to defend the WWF Women's Title. Now back in the US. Leilani Kai's dominant team hired the assistance of Jimmy Hart. They want that gold. This match was amazing. Judy Martin and Yamazaki looked so natural. Leilani Kai's power won out. Leilani Kai won with a huge Avalanche Power-bomb.
4 Demolition (Ax and Smash) (w/Crush) def. The Bolsheviks (Boris Zhukov and Nikolai Volkoff) Tag Team Match 81% 25:48 Ax and Smash have been teasing a breakup for the past few weeks. But this outing had them looking amazing. Whatever it is, Demolition should be on track to become THREE TIME WWF Tag Team Champions! This match was good, The Bolsheviks are not a bad team. Zhukov looked amazing in the ring against the behemoths that are Demolition. Smash hit a Schmidt-Style Back breaker on Zhukov for the win.
5 The Warlord (w/Bobby Heenan) def. Hercules Singles match 72% 3:07 The Warlord squashes Hercules and throws him around the ring. It's not much of a contest. Warlord wins after a Tornado Slam.
6 Owen Hart def. Brutus Beefcake Singles match 96% 17:45 Who knew this throwaway exhibition between a vein male stripper and High Energy's Owen Hart, would have been so good? Brother Bruti and Owen Hart have a genuine chemistry in the ring and they got to put it on display here. Owen wants that IC gold! Owen Hart wins after the Northern Lights Suplex.
7 Roddy Piper def. "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan Singles match 72% 8:15 Jim Duggan was hand picked by Hulk Hogan to shut Piper's mouth once-and-for-all. Duggan had been tormented by the Hot Rod for months. Poking and joking all the time. It boiled over on Piper's Pit on Saturday Night's Main Event, when Piper went too far with Duggan. This match was okay. Piper was great but looked to be slowing down. Roddy Piper won with a sleeper.
8 The Orient Express (Pat Tanaka and Sato) (w/Mr. Fuji) def. The Fabulous Rougeaus (Jacques Rougeau and Raymond Rougeau) Tag team match 75% 17:42 Mr. Fuji's new team looked amazing against arguably one of the best Tag Teams in the WWF or the world for that matter. The Rougeau Brothers put in a great effort, but came up sort and couldn't make it click against this new team. Sato wins after a Jumping DDT.
9 Tito Santana def. The Barbarian (w/Bobby Heenan) Singles match 93% 20:48 Tito Santana is on a bit of a hot streak as of late. Another on-again/off-again push that he keeps somehow obtaining. With the crowd behind him for some reason, Tito Santana looked great against The Barbarian. Barbarian dominated the much smaller Santana, but it was Tito who outmaneuvered the big man. Tito wins after the Flying Forearm Strike.
10 The Rockers (Marty Jannetty and Shawn Michaels) (c) def. The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart) WWF Tag Team Titles 98% 29:41 Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart are naturals in the ring against each other. The Rockers looked great and moved like a well oiled machine. Marty Jannetty took the Hart Foundation to the limit. One of the best Tag matches in the WWF at the time. The match ended when Shawn Michaels hit a Flying Cross body from the Top Rope on Bret Hart. After the match, the Brain Busters attacked both teams leaving them laying.
11 Earthquake (w/Jimmy Hart) def. Jake Roberts Singles match 82% 10:25 Earthquake has been on winning streak in singles matches, usually injuring is opponents. After eliminating Hulk Hogan and sending him to the hospital, Earthquake set his sights on the Main Event scene. But Jake Roberts had the same idea and wanted the Canadian big man out of the picture. This match was good. Better than it had any reason being. Earthquake is a beast and just out powered Roberts. Earthquake wins after the Earthquake Splash.
12 Ted DiBiase (c) (w/Bad News Brown) def. Dusty Rhodes Million Dollar Title 73% 13:21 Ted DiBiase, frustrated with his loss in presuit of the WWF Intercontinental Title and WWF World Heavyweight Title, had created his own title. The Million Dollar Championship and he vowed to be the one true champion. The only champion that mattered. That is until Dusty Rhodes challenged him for the belt. This match was a good one. Dusty is a hell of a worker and he put over DiBiase really well. DiBiase won after submitting Dusty in the Million Dollar Dream.
13 Big Boss Man def. Akeem (w/Slick) Singles match 79% 13:24 The Big Bossman turned face and started feuding with Slick's Squad, mainly Akeem. Akeem and Bossman battled in a tag match on Saturday Night's Main Event with Akeem and Haku defeating Bossman and Dusty Rhodes. But now it was one-on-one. This match was great. Bossman whipped Akeem all around the ring. Then took him down with a Bossman Slam.
14 The Ultimate Warrior (c) def. Rick Rude (w/Bobby Heenan) WWF Intercontinental Title 100% 20:19 CAGE MATCH: This was the last time that Rick Rude would challenge for the Intercontinental Title. He has a deep seeded hatred for The Ultimate Warrior and wanted to prove he was better. For over a year Rick Rude has been a thorn in Ultimate Warriors side. This match was one of the best on the card. A tremendous bout between two evenly matched nemesis'. Ultimate Warrior escaped the cage and kept the title.
Main Event "Macho Man" Randy Savage (c) (w/Miss Elizabeth) def. Mr. Perfect WWF World Heavyweight Title 82% 11:41 Mr. Perfect won the 1990 Royal Rumble and instantly challenged Randy Savage. Savage, erratic as he is, didn't seem to pay this challenge any mind until a MSG Live show when Mr. Perfect came onto Miss Elizabeth. Savage chased him out of the building. For weeks following Mr. Perfect cut amazing promos about being the new blood. This match was amazing. Randy Savage made an iconic entrance. These two put on a hell of a match. Amazing stuff. Mr. Perfect never hit the Perfect-Plex. Mr. Perfect was defeated by Macho Man after a huge flying elbow drop. The crowd went nuts.
86% 240:53
Total Time: 4:00:00
This was an amazing event. Mr. Perfect looked like a million bucks and he didn't look bad coming out of this one. Macho is still getting huge applause but Hogan wasn't in the house. Warrior and Rude put on a classic. That match was... wow. Just amazing. Rick Rude can no longer challenge for the IC Title. The Rockers and Hart Foundation put on a hell of a show too. Not to mention The Glamour Girls defeating The Jumping Bomb Angels.

1 Hulk Hogan 3/31/1984 WWF on MSG Network New York City, NY 1 1093 Hogan is the first WWF champion according to this title history. He won the WWF title in a single night tournament at MSG from The Iron Sheik. Hogan did well promoting the title and defended it quite a bit. However, it was a double-cross from his friend Andre the Giant that dethroned this king.
2 Andre the Giant 3/29/1987 Wrestlemania III Pontiac, MI 1 368 Andre the Giant had been best friends with Hulk Hogan for years before turning on him and joining Bobby Heenan. This partnership would be lucrative since Andre would beat Hogan for the WWF Championship at Wrestlemania III. Thus striking a blow to Hulkamania and weakening the iconic one. Andre would also defend the title quite a bit. He was undefeated until Wrestlemania IV.
3 Hulk Hogan 3/27/1988 Wrestlemania IV Atlantic City, NJ 2 369 Hulk Hogan regained his title from Andre the Giant in front of over 100,000 people in Atlantic City, New Jersey! It was a decent match that also served as Andre's retirement match.

Meltzer would report that Hogan is going on to make some movies in Hollywood before returning to the WWF. Savage is a great face and will be an amazing champion.

1 Greg Valentine 1/17/1985 WWF on PRISM Philadelphia, PA 1 73 Greg Valentine was the first IC champion that I started the game with. He defeated Pat Patterson for the title, technically making him the second champion. But again, I started my game with him as IC champ. He would lose the title in a very bloody match with JYD.
2 Junkyard Dog 3/31/1985 Wrestlemania I New York, NY 1 258 JYD was one of the most beloved and most punishing champions. His battles were always bloody and always crowd favorites. He dropped the belt to Randy Savage on Saturday Night's Main Event at MSG.
3 Randy Savage 12/14/1985 WWF at MSG New York, NY 1 771 Randy Savage held the WWF Intercontinental Title for an unprecedented amount of time. He was one of the best champions of the eighties. Defeating opponents like Ivan Karloff, Harley Race, Brutus Beefcake, Rick Rude among others.

1 The U.S. Express (Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo) 3/31/1984 WWF on MSG Network New York City, NY 1 586 The U.S. Express was a great tag team that started the game as Tag Champs. They would lose them to the British Bulldogs at the Wrestling Classic.
2 The British Bulldogs (Dynamite Kid & Davey Boy Smith) 11/7/1985 The Wrestling Classic Rosemont, IL 1 871 The British Bulldogs vs. The U.S. Express in a fantastic bout. Dynamite and Rotundo were meant to do battle. They have defended against Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff, The American Express, The Hart Foundation, The Islanders, and many more during their impressive multi-year run.
3 Demolition (Ax & Smash) 3/27/1988 Wrestlemania IV Atlantic City, NJ 1 While the British Bulldogs were the most popular team in the WWF. No team were turning heads faster than the big, angry, Demolition. Ax and Smash along with their manager, Mr. Fuji, have been running rough-shot over the WWF. They had their eyes set on gold. The Bulldogs are good, but they couldn't best the beasts.

2020.09.27 02:51 FurkanE17 Many completions, more words [September Report '20]

I: A lot to say

Let me warn you beforehand. In this progress post, I have a lot (!) to say. I have beaten 5 games this month and abandoned almost as many. The completion amount is actually my highest since MARCH 2019 (!) apart from January, which is a month that is always inflated with completions as I get to work on my "new year resolutions". I don't know what happened but something clicked in my brain in a way for the first time since probably the beginning of 2019 in terms of me wanting to play single player games a lot again. I've never really stopped playing them since Jan' 19 but if you look at the past 5 months before September for example, I've only beaten 4 games in that time.
Or check this stat out, I actually abandoned more games than I have beaten this year, also a sign that I wasn't really feeling single player games that much so far. I didn't really follow gaming news or releases either. This month though, oh boy. Apart from playing and beating a bunch of games, I've added every game I'm interested in to my PC, Playstation, XBOX and Switch wishlists and have now compiled about 200 wishlisted games on all platforms combined. At the end of August, I had even added a bunch of games I had previously abandoned back to my backlog because I got the urge to give them another shot.
I'm also following gaming news closely again, playing coop games with my two brothers, watched the Playstation Showcase etc. So yeah, long story short, I love gaming again and I have a lot to say about my progress in September. Hope you enjoy!

II: Games I've Quit 4

As someone who enjoyed Borderlands (solo) and disliked Borderlands 2 (played it for 10 hours each with two different coop mates), I decided to try out the only Borderlands game I had yet to play (currently playing Borderlands 3 in coop). Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel was a game I thought would be at least as enjoyable as my solo playthrough of the original but it wasn't to be, as the setting just wasn't for me. And what kept me hooked long enough in the original (graphics, gameplay loop) didn't really impress me this time (graphics are still fine). Hopefully Borderlands 3 will get more enjoyable though.
Saints Row: The Third. The game that cost me fucking 1300 €... Anyway, that was a while back now, so I went into this with an open mind. It did cost me a ridiculous sum, so I could at least try to enjoy it, right? Wrong. I didn't like it. It's not my type of humor (99% of the time) and gameplay was annoying because you'd get shot at by hundreds of people at all times. That's of course the intent in this game but it's not for me. I'll still try IV and Gat out of Hell because I enjoyed what I had played of IV in coop but I'll have to officially "retire" my most expensive purchase ever... Didn't even get a fucking collectible.
The first game I abandoned this month was Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom and it took me about 30 minutes to come to that decision. The game didn't look terrible (it didn't look good either) but the visual design immediately put me off. That definitely has more to do with me than with the game but the game didn't do anything to hold my interest. It just puts you into this world and throws approximately 200 "lore verbiage" at you and has just the most basic characters ever. A dumb friend who gets lost and a "cute little companion". So yeah, not impressed and saw no reason to continue after the introductory parts.
Now this game that calls itself Vampyr... oh boy. What a giant fucking mess this game is. First the positive: Atmospherically (graphics, sounds) this game is very solid and I like the early 20th century setting in London as well. The XP system is also pretty nice: Every NPC is unique and has its own backstory and it's up to you, if you want to "embrace" them (kill them) to gain a bunch of XP in order to upgrade your skills. This in turn has "consequences", which I came to understand means that there are more things that want to kill you (?). I've played it for about 6-7 hours and embraced one NPC, so I'm not totally sure about those consequences.
But here come the negatives: First the slight negative. Combat isn't great. You can either have one two-handed weapon or one "on hand" plus one "off hand" weapon. Your on hand weapon can be something like a "Used Bludgeon" and the off hand weapon can be a "Used Stake" or just a normal revolver. That's fine. It's just unfortunate that the camera is in the way a lot. Not all the time but often enough that it becomes noticeable. You can also lock onto an enemy but once you face two enemies, the camera just constantly switches who to lock on to and you're left striking at air whenever you do press "Attack". It's not too bad though. The bad part? The dialogue system. I've played Fallout 4 and I have never ever seen such a terrible dialogue system. Example. You're in a hospital and you meet an old lady who is bedridden. You talk to her. This opens up dialogue options. You can ask her about who she is, what her thoughts are and a bunch of other personal stuff that opens up as you find out more about her. You can ask her quest-relevant stuff as well. As we talk, she gets a bit upset, so I'm presented with three choices: "Shut Up!", "Please calm down" or "I will kill you". I choose the "Please calm down" option. Her reaction? "Oh, threatening an old lady, are you?" Bruh, what? And this is not a one-time occurrence. It happens regularly. And it's not the worst thing. So many times, my question and an NPC's answer just don't align at all. And whenever I choose one of the "unlocked dialogue options", the main character decides to shout at the NPC, even if I ask something like "You're best friends with this guy, right?" or something like that.
Also, there was this couple that blackmailed patients for money. I found out, talked to them and they immediately confessed and were like "so what?". Like it's not a big deal. And that's that, the dialogue doesn't continue after that. Two hours later, I talk to the same person and a dialogue option pops up: "Have you heard anything about these blackmails?". I don't know how or when, but I ask and she says "No..". So the main character responds with: "You seem nervous". And I'm like BRO OF COURSE SHE DOES, YOU ALREADY FUCKING KNOW SHE DID IT. And then it never resolves itself. You can ask every NPC that question and nothing comes of it. You just move on with the questline. Like, what is this mess of a game? Rant over. Some of the dialogue is OK (whenever it's not broken) but for a company like DONTNOD, who are known for Life is Strange, I would've expected more from the story part.

III: Games I’ve Added 6

I got Into The Breach, Watch Dogs 2 and Where The Water Tastes Like Wine for free through Epic. All three were on my wishlist, so I'm very happy that these were given away. Though none of these are high on my "to play" priority list (don't have such a thing actually), especially Watch Dogs 2, as I still have yet to play the original.
My brother purchased Need for Speed: Payback a while back and I've decided to add it to my backlog. Been a while since I've played a racing game and this one seems to have some kind of a story. Will at least check it out at some point, why not.
Victor Vran and Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior are games I got years ago and for some reason decided to hide in my Steam library. Both games I'd like to give a try at some point, so I've decided to add them to the backlog.

IV: Games I've Beaten 5

A quick overview of all the games I've beaten this month. Reviews are in alphabetical order. (Bold = Game of the Month)
GRIS
Owned Since: April 18th, 2020
Beaten: September 1st
Platform: PC
Playtime: 3.5 hours
I'm not really the type of person who has a lot to say about GRIS because 1) I'm (thankfully) not someone who went through what the main character is going through (depression) and 2) colorful, vibrant worlds don't really affect me much. I do however know a few people who go or have gone through depression and having listened to their stories and seen a bunch of people online talk about depression, I can definitely empathize with everyone going through depression and other mental disorders. What I can say about GRIS is that I love how the story was portrayed and how you slowly add color to the main character's world and how each level stands for the different stages of grief (I think?). And I really liked the ending as well, though unfortunately there was no audio for the cutscene. Hearing the beautiful soundtrack would have added a lot to the scene obviously, so I had to "re-experience" it on Youtube. I'm giving it a 7 because gameplay was pretty bland mostly but if you like the look of the game, you should 100% check it out.
Rating: 7/10
Eliza
Owned Since: February 10th, 2020
Beaten: September 5th
Platform: PC
Playtime: 7 hours
Eliza is an artificial counselor and you play as Evelyn. Evelyn works as a proxy, someone who voices the lines in therapy sessions that the AI generates. You talk to a bunch of different patients and listen to their problems (mostly interesting conversations) and ultimately give them the help that the AI recommends (relaxation programs, medicine).
Next to all of this, you get to know Evelyn, her boss, her friends and her other contacts. They all have some kind of connection to Eliza (Evelyn does too) and it all culminates to you making a choice.
I've played through the game once and enjoyed my time with it. It's not really among the better ones I've ever played though. I never really started to find the characters Evelyn talks to interesting, so making my choice ended up being about "which choice sucks the least". You might like it more than I do and some conversations are pretty interesting to be fair, not to mention the game centering on an artificial counseling program, so check it our for yourself if you have it on your wishlist (or your library).
Rating: 6/10
Bioshock Infinite
Owned Since: September 5th, 2015
Beaten: September 17th
Platform: PC
Playtime: 12 hours
I've already typed up my AC 2 review at this point because I had so much to say about that game, so I don't know how many characters I have left in this post, which is why I'll keep this a bit shorter.
Bioshock Infinite is amazing. There is probably only one thing that keeps it from being a perfect 10 and that is the combat. It's not that it is bad but 1) after playing the first two, the third is mostly more of the same apart from not fighting big daddies and having worse plasmids/vigors. More weapon variance would have been nice as well, as a lot of weapons just felt very similar to each other.
Bioshock Infinite plays in Columbia, which is a city atop the skies (so basically the opposite of Bioshock 1 and 2) and in my eyes, Columbia is just as beautiful as Rapture. Not only is it extremely intriguing because, holy fuck we're atop the skies, but some of the landmarks are just eye popping. There is a rail system in place as well (sky-lines), which is just amazing because it's such a thrill to not only get on them but also to fight enemies, have an awesome view at the landmarks and just be in the FUCKING SKIES all at the same time. The best part involving them comes early on in the game, when you escape the Monument Tower. I've never experienced such an epic moment in a game. The music that plays when you escape, oh my god! It's just too good. You watch the Tower crumble, a huge bird flies after you, you hang on to those rails for dear life and just get goosebumps to that music pumping in your headphones. 10/10 would escape again. Just check it out on Youtube if you don't plan on playing Bioshock Infinite, it's worth watching.
The story in this game is worthy of a Bioshock plot, as it's just on another level for a video game, yet again. It starts innocently enough. You play as Booker DeWitt and have a debt. "Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt" is a line you hear over and over again in this game. Your objective is to get to Columbia, find Elizabeth and bring her to New York. What follows, and I don't want to spoil anything major, is an epic storyline with twists and turns I never saw coming. Would I want to have a sequel some day? Sure but I don't know what would come after this. Ken Levine and Irrational Games, hats off to you.
Rating: 9/10
Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior
Owned Since: July 17th, 2017
Beaten: September 18th
Platform: PC
Playtime: 1.5 hours
Yes, this game has the same rating as AC 2 but both games try completely different things, so it's not comparable really. This game is more for relaxing while you mindlessly clean up after Lo Wang slicing up a bunch of dudes while AC 2 tells you a story semi-successfully and pads its playing time with repetitive content.
VCD: Shadow Warrior is fine for what it is. I would never try another one though because man, is it infuriating when I can't properly see my bucket, run it over and have another huge mess to clean up after. Better controls and I'm back in, maybe, for another freebie like this.
Rating: 5/10
Assassins Creed II
Owned Since: 2016
Beaten: September 26th
Platform: PC
Playtime: 20 hours
Oh man, do I have A LOT to say about Assassins Creed II. Where do I even begin? I guess, as always, with my previous experiences with the series. When I really got into gaming back in 2015, one of the first games I bought was a used copy of Assassins Creed for my PS3. It's one of the most famous gaming series out there, so it was one of the first games that came to mind. It didn't take long for me to abandon it, mainly because I played The Witcher 3 and Skyrim at that time as well but also because the game wasn't all that great. Years later I retried it, beat it and didn't touch the series for a while. I've since tried AC: Origins, played AC: Freedom Cry (expansion to Black Flag) and had started and abandoned AC 2 in (let me check) March 2018. Wow, it's been that long, damn. Anyway, I then decided that I'd ignore the series from now on because I don't like it but recently, I just had the urge to give the series another shot.
So here we are. I gave it another shot. And let me start with something positive: I definitely will play later releases of this series and will definitely check out Assassins Creed: Brotherhood next. I mean, I own every single game of the series apart from AC: Rogue, so why not. But that's not the only reason. While my review of AC2 will not be amazing (I'm going to give it a 5, which in my rating system means "OK" or "Just about average"), I've seen gameplay of games like Unity and they just look soo much better in terms of graphics and controls.
Let's continue with the positives, shall we? The soundtrack is really good. There is one song called "Ezio's Family", which plays at the beginning (and at other parts as well) when you race your (Ezio's) brother atop a building and the camera pans out to show a shot of Florence. Other songs also fit well with what's on the screen at all times but "Ezio's family" is on another level in my opinion.
Talking about Florence though, the settings of Venice, Tuscany and Monteriggioni (and Florence) are ones that are not usually used in games and I can't imagine how awesome it must have been to experience them, if you've ever been to any of these locations, especially Venice and Florence. Though the game is 11 years old now, so the graphics don't really do those cities justice. Also, while Venice looked really nice, I kept falling into the river - because there's water everywhere - so I don't know how well Venice lends itself to being a setting in games, though that doesn't seem to be something anyone really was bothered by but me.
In terms of story, I thought that the first sequence and how the rest of the game is set up by the events in that sequence was awesome. It's a tired trope (Ezio's brothers and father get killed) but it definitely helps you sympathize with the main character and aid him in his revenge. Was it perfectly set up? No. It happens 30 minutes into the game. You don't really build a relationship with your family up to that point.
I'm also not too opposed to Desmond's story like so many people seem to be. It adds an overarching story to these early AC game and I don't know if the stories about the pieces of Eden could be as well told, if not for a connection to modern day events. The ending went a bit overboard I thought but there is a lot still to be cleared up, so I'll hold off on any further opinions on that for now.
Let's now get to the negatives. Now first up: The game is 11 years old. I get it. I never expected it to hold up to today's standards of gameplay. I didn't expect it to be this bad though.
Let's start with the controls. OH MY GOD THE CONTROLS! The amount of times I just wanted to climb up and would jump into my death. The amount of times I would want to jump on a ledge and miss it for no conceivable reason whatsoever. These things also happened multiple times: Running after someone only to jump on a helpless civilian. Running after someone just to walk into a wall slightly and Ezio just holding on to a ledge for 2 seconds, even though I tell him to let fucking go. Wanting to walk faster only to pickpocket someone unintentionally. Trying to get on a platform just to constantly fall down because some enemy walked into me. There were like 100 other things I can't remember but it was damn infuriating. This imperfection I can at least put on the game's age and it mostly didn't diminish the experience. Wall climbing and parkouring were probably pretty new and different back then, so I can see how people probably weren't bothered by the controls that much.
The side content was boring and repetitive. I know it's a Ubisoft game but AC 2 was on another level. This too I can put on the game's age. The series grew with each iteration, so I'm not too annoyed that the earlier games aren't that good when it comes to side content. For example: There are a handful of races, where you need to beat someone else's time. The quest giver always gives you the same speech and there isn't much else to it. Then there are a bunch of wives who tell you that their husbands cheat on them, so you go beat them up. That's it. There is nothing else to it, no substance and no proper reason why Ezio would give a fuck, especially later in the game. Then there are many assassinations where you randomly assassinate people. Those are fine. Again, there isn't anything else to them but if you enjoy assassinations so much, enjoy. Other than that, you need to collect 330 (!) chests, climb 73 (!) watch towers and find 100 (!) feathers (among other things) to reach 100% synchronization. That's just too many chests and feathers. The watch towers wouldn't be too bad if there wouldn't often be two of them right next to each other for the sole purpose of just adding more watch towers. I guess future titles have even more of them? Man.
Is there any good side content? Yes, the Assassins tombs. There are six of them. In each, you basically turn into the Prince of Persia, do a lot of parkouring with sweaty hands because you don't want to fall off that final ledge because the controls suck and you get rewarded with a seal. Six of those seals you will need to unlock Altair's suit, which is awesome and gives you an actual incentive to explore the tombs, which are nice to explore on their own anyway.
Also, you have the Auditore villa in Monteriggioni. There, you can use floren (currency) to upgrade the villa and its surroundings, put codex pages that you can find in the world on a wall and collect money from a chest that increases based on how far you've upgraded the villa. You can also add feathers that you collect inside a box in your mother's bedroom, who, FOR THE ENTIRE DURATION OF THE GAME, just kneels next to her bed and prays. That's it. That's her whole contribution. And remember, the game takes you from about 1476 to 1499, so who kneels for 20+ years and doesn't age at all? The same goes for Ezio's sister, who's bookkepping in the villa and still looks the same in 1499 as she did in 1476. I know it's a game but that's the kind of detail that you should and can pay attention to, whether your game released in 2009 or 2020.
I've been writing a lot about this game so far, so let me get into the story to end this. And a story is 100% something that either is or is not good. Especially if it's, in its premise, as unique as the Assassins Creed storyline. As I said already, the starting point is pretty strong, though with a lot of potential for more. Ezio is introduced as this free spirit who's only interests are women and having fun. And I get it, if you go from Altair, who is rather stoic to a charismatic and extroverted character like Ezio, it's understandable why people immediately liked Ezio. Do I like Ezio? Yeah. Do I think he's an incredible character? No, not really. In my opinion, his character isn't really developed that well. He just goes from being a naive kid to a naive kid who is also an assassin to a grown man with similar traits to when he was still a naive kid to ultimately someone who can hold introspective speeches in front of crowds and finally can somewhat live in peace with the death of his father and brothers. There isn't really much else to him and the mentioned character development really happens out of nowhere. Within a sequence (chapter) you jump up to foufive years and don't really notice it at all (until he gets all grown up and grows a beard).
The game in my opinion makes the mistake of prioritizing quantity over quality. Instead of focusing more on Ezio, who doesn't really get to talk about himself and his experiences apart from a couple short conversations (the speech, talk to Rosa and five second interactions with his victims), the devs just thought: "Hey, why don't we add 400 targets, so that the game takes longer to beat." And by doing that, two things happened. 1) The sequences focus on building up a target you've previously never heard of before. This means less focus on developing Ezio. 2) The targets come and go as you assassinate them, so there isn't much time to develop them either (apart from the main antagonist of course). Due to that, you are left with a bunch of generic old dudes who all have just about the same reasons for why they are the bad guys (power).
It's a common thing with Ubisoft from my experience. For example, Pagan Min in Far Cry 4 was such an interesting antagonist to me (because of his connections to the main character's mother for example) but at the end, he is just being shown in a handful of cut scenes and heard through a half dozen or so phone conversations. Same goes for Vaas in Far Cry 3, who's so beloved but ultimately also rarely appears in the game. I don't get it but at the same time I do. If you got a year or two between games, it's easier to create content by duplicating boring side missions 10 times than writing up intricate storylines and interesting or well developed characters.
The worst offense happens in Sequence 13, where in order to assassinate the main guy, you're tasked with assassinating NINE (!) of his lieutenants, who you've obviously never heard of before. And the main target? Didn't appear before Sequence 12 and had literally two appearances. When you meet him and when you kill him. It's so bad and it's not easily justified with saying (oh it's an old game). Assassins Creed 1 wasn't a masterpiece by any means (though I might have a different appreciation story wise for it today) but the introspective, long conversations between Altair, his "task-giver" and especially his targets, who mostly had at least different motivations here and there, made for a much more believable and understandable development of Altair's character.
So all in all, AC 2 is rightfully a well-acclaimed game for its time, though it has aged terribly mostly and never really prospered in some aspects to begin with.

VI: 12in12 original list 10/12 completed

Yessir, one more completion with Bioshock Infinite beaten. For my Year in Review post, I'll be taking a look at the average rating I gave to these games to see how successful I was in putting good games into this list. Spoiler: The rating will be very high. Only bad game in there is Pokémon Sword, which is definitely a candidate for Worst Game of the Year. Oh well.
Looking ahead, I'm confident of beating Batman Arkham City but not so confident about Mass Effect 2, as my playing time will dramatically be reduced once uni starts in November. We'll see.
------------------

VII: My Stats

If you're a patient gamer, these past few years have been really good to you. About 25 games out of the 54 I added where games I previously owned, abandoned and then readded. But paying 53€ for the other 30 games is pretty good I must say. Just look at this month: I got Into the Breach, Watch Dogs 2 and Where The Water Tastes Like Wine for free! If you'd stop buying games and just play the ones you get for free you'd be a very busy man. So with all the shit going on in 2020, we at least got that going for us.
Anyway, thank you for reading and best of luck to you all for next month! :)

2020.09.27 00:07 nun_atoll 22 — Bend

The place was dead all night. One small group, a trio of kids who couldn't be more than 12 or 13, took the stage for a while around 10 o'clock, but no one was really up for live music. Harm had finally turned on the old hi-fi that connected from his office to the sound system. Disco music poured out, and everyone just sort of accepted it. Hell, it had a beat. A few people even danced half-heartedly when a BenziDex song came on — after all, they used to be a punk band.
Sighing, Crawler downed his third whiskey just around midnight and turned to leave. He was nearly to the door when Reg caught up to him and, for a moment, they joined hands before stepping out into the night.
"Fucked up," Crawled spat.
"Huh?"
"Oh, this whole thing. It's fucked up."
Reg nodded, tugging his saggy, worn calfskin jacket closer around his shoulders.
"Still," he said, "don't people get murdered in New York?"
"Yeah. Sure. But... But I mean... Like, what'd Andy ever do to anyone? Or Cassie? They were so fuckin' nice, ya know?"
"Maybe people don't only get murdered if they deserve it," Reg shrugged.
They'd gone almost a block before they saw Ritz and Regan leaning against the side of Harm's van. Well, it was more that Ritz had Regan pressed against the van, balling her something fierce right there in public. The coitus paused as the guys approached, and by the time they were in arm's length, Regan's skirt was neatly back in place and Ritz was zipping up.
"Well hey," Ritz said, and Crawler nodded.
"I'd ask what you guys're up to..." he started, and Ritz laughed.
"Hey, man. Can't take her home right now, can I? Club's busy. Anyhow, what about you two?"
Reg and Crawler shrugged in unison. Smirking, Ritz motioned to the van.
"We're gonna go parkin'" she said. "Plenty of room if you wanna come along."
"We're not really into group... Stuff," Reg managed, and Ritz just laughed.
"No, man! No. We're headed somewhere that won't be a problem. Hop in."
After a few emphatic glances and shrugs, Reg and Crawler went and clambered into the back of the van. It was dark, naturally, and there was a large mattress on the floor, complete with sheets. Ritz had gotten behind the wheel, Regan into the passenger's seat, and as the van coughed to life, something was tossed back, landing between Reg and Crawler.
"You might need it," Regan called brightly.
Picking the object up, Crawler was instantly sure what it was. As they drove under a streetlight, he chuckled and showed Reg.
"Thoughtful," Reg huffed, rolling his eyes at the sight.
Still, before they had driven much further, he had warmed up and seemed genuinely grateful as Crawler applied the gel where necessary.
They might have driven for 10 minutes. They might have driven for an hour. All Crawler knew was the sheer joy of Reg under him, squealing and grunting and begging. By the time they both finished and flopped down beside each other on the mattress, the van had stopped and the girls had got out. As Reg dozed off, Crawler knelt up and looked out through the windshield.
Beach. They were at some beach. There was a driftwood fire burning down nearer the water, and Crawler thought he could just see the girls by it, humping on a blanket.

2020.09.26 22:42 ninetymph Misinformation: Clarifying Myth vs Fact

Guys. Girls. Others. Rangers Fans.
There is so much misinformation running rampant on this subreddit regarding the salary cap situation, buyouts, and the expansion draft. I've been reading a lot of flat out wrong content and misinformation from other users here, and I wanted to make this post to help everyone become educated on the facts if they so choose.

SALARY CAP
Before any moves or roster adjustments are made, the NY Rangers currently have 15 players under contract the NY Rangers currently have 14 players under contract for the 2020-2021 season. That 15 14 includes 8 Forwards, 5 4 Defensemen, and 2 Goalies. With the salary cap for next season remaining flat (i.e. once again, $81.5m) and the value of the cap hits for next season's contracts + prior buyout penalties weighing in at $67.1m $61.4m the team currently has just under $14.4m $20.1 in available cap contracts to award among at least 5 6 players, but will likely include 5 forwards, 2 3 defenseman, and 1 goalie.

BUYOUTS
How buyouts work: Teams are permitted to buyout a players contract to obtain a reduced salary cap hit over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract. The buyout amount is a function of the players age at the time of the buyout.
How it pertains to the Rangers: In the past, the front office has bought out players that are older and have several years remaining on their contracts. Per CapFriendly's helpful FAQ, using buyouts on players like Girardi and Shattenkirk have saddled the Rangers with several million dollars in dead cap space per year because of their:
Thus, we arrive at the perception that buyouts are expensive. However, just because the FO has made mistakes in the past does not mean that a buyout for Hank is automatically a bad move. Feel how you want to regarding the facts, but these are facts:

Costs Benefits
2021-2022 Season: $5.5m in dead cap 2021-2022 Season: $3m in additional cap space ($8.5m less the $5.5m penalty) to help resign many RFA players now (Strome, Georgiev, ADA, Di Giuseppe, Lemieux).
2022-2023 Season: $1.5m in dead cap 2022-2023 Season: $1.5m dead cap expires before Girardi & Shattenkirk buyouts
\)the buyout formula is a little bit more complex than just 2/3rds, but it's very close in Hank's case

BURIED CONTRACTS
Ignoring the waivers process for a moment to illustrate the impact that AHL assignments have on the salary cap, I'd like to address the idea that the team can just "bury" a player's contract in the minors for full cap-relief.
What is a buried contract: Teams do not receive full cap relief when a player on a one-way NHL contract is reassigned to the American Hockey League, or is loaned to a team in another professional league. The players salary cap hit, minus the sum of the minimum NHL salary for the respective season and $375,000, still counts towards the team’s salary cap total. The cap hit relief is therefore equal to the minimum salary of the respective season + $375,000.
The first important concept to understand here are that players have either a ONE-WAY or TWO-WAY contract, which determines how much money the player is paid for playing in the NHL and the AHL. One-Way contracts have no difference in salary, regardless of what level the player is at; however, Two-Way contracts have different payment amounts if the player is currently on the NHL or AHL roster. Because of this difference, players on one-way deals can only receive a maximum of $1.125m in cap relief (for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 seasons), and the Rangers still eat the difference between the actual cap hit and the $1.125m.
For example:
Player Assigned to AHL Original NHL Cap Hit Salary Cap Relief New NHL Salary Cap Hit for AHL Player
Brendan Smith $4.350m $1.125m $3.225m
Mark Staal* $5.700m $1.125m $4.575m
Brett Howden** $0.863m $0.863m $0
\) Marc Staal cannot be moved to the AHL because he has a No-Move Clause (NMC) in his contract. Thank you to blueline7677 for pointing that out! Also, as it turns out, Marc Staal cannot be moved to the AHL because it's being reported that he's being traded to the Red Wings!
\*) I'm aware that Brett Howden is on an ELC and that all ELC's are Two-Way Contracts by definition, but I needed an example of how a one-way contract would work if it was less than the relief amount.

THE EXPANSION DRAFT
This is a concept that so many people here seem to have a bit mixed up, so I will address how the expansion draft relates to the Rangers and then detail a list of players that are ineligible to be drafted by Seattle.
-----------------------------------
First & Second Year Pros: all players who have accrued two or less professional seasons at the end of the 2020-21 season, as well as all unsigned draft choices appearing on the teams reserve list, will be exempt from the upcoming expansion draft.
Minimum Exposure Requirements: teams must expose a minimum number of players that meet the following criteria for selection in the upcoming Expansion Draft:
-----------------------------------
Addressing the minimum exposure requirements first, this is relevant to the Rangers primarily in the Goalie position because a) Hank will no longer be under contract and b) Shesterkin is exempt under the second-year pro provision. For everyone under the assumption that we will automatically lose Georgiev as a result, consider that teams are allowed to protect either (8 Total Skaters and 1 Goalie) or (7 Forwards, 3 Defensemen, and 1 Goalie).
If the Rangers are able to sign a goaltender to a contract for the express purpose of exposing him during the expansion draft, the team will be able to freely hold on to Shesterkin and protect Georgiev.

Here is a list (in no particular order) of all First & Second Year Pros for the New York Rangers, and are thereby exempt from the Seattle Expansion Draft:

Because all of these players are flat out exempt from the expansion draft, here is a potential list of players that could be protected.
7 Forwards
3 Defensemen
1 Goalie
Along with the list of players from the exempt list, this is still the core of the team and shouldn't lose any major pieces during the expansion draft.
\) I am aware that these players are RFAs, and I'm including them as they are likely to be protected if they are still on the team when the expansion draft occurs.

tl;dr:
I know that this has been a wall of text, and I thank you for reading it all. Possibly twice, since the original post went up 2 hours before the Staal trade!

Who are Nano Influencers and why does it matter

How much do you know of Social Media Marketing? The word has created fields and industries which are specialise in maximising the results from it.📊
Do you know that an average instagram user has 150 followers? That has been only growing with time as accounts get abandoned and new accounts get created.
Nano influencer is a blogger who has from 1 000 - 10 000 followers.💪 Those are friends and real life connections. They are highly engaged with the account and read every word their friend says.
The new trend is not advertising once with the big boys and girls, who has more than 1 million followers. The new trend is advertising 365 days a year with a nano influencer.
The categories of Influencers:

Benefits of using NANO influencers

As I already said it sucks when your favorite blogger or someone you admire starts writing about their daily life and how a specific product helped them. I hate that BS.
But when my friend on instagram tags a dry cleaner who helped him get the worst stain of his favorite hoodie.
Or my love from school posts story where she says that she has never seen better service than in a specific shop.
I really follow those pages and next time I need to clean, or buy something I will remember what they recommended.
Think about yourself. Who is more likely to influence your choice on cereal brand. 10 close real life friends or LeBron James?
The nano influencers has a specific and very deep niche of followers. There are also so many of those unbotted nano influencers that you have as much choice as you want. Doesn't matter who is your target.
There was an article in New York Times about phenomena of Nano-influencers.
“Their lack of fame is one of the qualities that make them approachable,” says author of the New York Times’ piece. “When they recommend a shampoo or a lotion or a furniture brand on Instagram, their word seems as genuine as advice from a friend.”
Also one of the best parts for a business is that a free trial or a sample of a product will be enough to agree on terms of advertising.
No one is coming to them every day offering partnership. If you are the first to contact them, a nano influencer has NO IDEA how much it actually costs to advertise. Even asking for money will feel wrong as they might think their story post has no value to your brand.
In 2018 nano influencer wasn't even a term:
That is why it is one of the best ways to advertise online right now. It doesn't matter what social network we are talking about, but Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are surely the best platforms to use nano influencers at.

How to find Nano influencers

One of the easiest ways is to find already good service which provides you with list of influencers looking to earn with sponsored posts. This would be leveraging the most annoying work of sending DM's on Instagram and getting into shadow ban for getting blocked too many times.
Another way is to leverage this to someone else like a small marketing agency or a VA who can follow a script and reach out to the influencers.
One of the ways to guarantee yourself finding up and coming nano influencers is to follow specific hashtags.
One of the most used hashtags by those who are looking to be sponsored is #discoverunder10k
You can check both Top and Recent to find the best fit for your niche.
Another way would be to look for related accounts when following a nano influencer. Usually they follow each over and make a niche circle around themselves. Something similar to a community.
Something that will give away an inspiring influencer is:
Nano-influencers have a very specific niche and they have a lifestyle or values they identify themselves and also their followers. This is a great way to check if your brand and their way of thinking has any cross references and if it makes sense for you to collaborate.
A looking-to-be nano influencers have a very specificly organized or styled pictures and albums. Those are usually specific to their interests and niche but general pattern is usually present.
Highlights is a go to identifier of a nano-influencer. As they already have a relatively big followage, their way to engage more users and increase their following was the highlights as it allows you to share some stories and experiences to engage people more fully. Sometimes even a previous integration with another brand is present in the highlights.
The way for nano-influencer to be contacted and to be sponsored is to provide easy contact information. So if an email or a phone is present do not shine away from going away from instagram(I would use everything as to not get ignored).

MEGAN VADNAIS – 9 961 FOLLOWERS

Test. Test. Test. And than Test some more.

2020.09.26 20:55 RedditSkippy Whatcha Reading?

Many years ago, I remember looking at the spines of the books on my grandparents, bookshelves. My maternal grandparents were serious readers, and they always had a book they were working through. It didn't have to be anything serious, and usually it was some kind of mystery. I think my grandfather tended to some more serious tomes. One book on the shelf I remember was, "The Aspirin Age." I even attempted to read a section of it when I was a little girl, but of course, it went right over my head.
Incidentally, as much as my maternal grandparents were bookworms, I don't remember seeing a single book at my paternal grandparents' house, ever. They read magazines and the newspaper. I suspect that my grandfather was barely able to read (I now suspect that he might have been functionally illiterate, meaning that he could read the words on the page, but might have been unable to determine what the words were trying to express.)
This morning, that book popped back into my head. I feel like I can handle such a read these days, and we're two years into the same period of the 21st Century (the book is a collection of essays about the years between WWI and WWII,) so I thought it might be an interesting read. For a cool $7, I have a copy winging its way to me from Western New York.
Reading for pleasure is an activity I always took for granted, but of course, not everyone can take the time to do that, or has the desire to do so. Do you like to read for pleasure? What are you reading lately, and how did you make that choice? Any good recommendations?

2020.09.26 18:32 kymilleg ranking every episode by number (day 15)

hi! today is day 15 (episode 15) of ranking every episode by number. if you want to see the previous 14 days, just click on my profile!
today, we are ranking the 15th episodes of each season. for reminder, they are: 1x15: Power of Madonna, 2x15: Sexy, 3x15, Big Brother, 4x15: Girls (And Boys) on Film, and 5x15: Bash
*these are ranked by episode, not plot!
here is my ranking:
  1. Sexy. Very funny episode and gwyneth paltrow had an amazing performance. I liked how there was a healthy balance between a new directions plot and a warblers plot with kurt and blaine
  2. Power of Madonna. Very solid epsiode. the songs and plot was pulled off very well.
  3. Bash. In my opinion, people give the second half of season five way too much hate. bash, new new york, and opening night are some of my favorite episodes in the series. the plot with kurt was phenomenal. 10/10
  4. Girls (And Boys) On Film. Once again, another solid episode. good plot, although nothing really stood out to me.
  5. Big Brother. Forgettable. I kinda don’t like the plot with blaine and his brother. I understand why people don’t really like this episode that much.
what about you all?

2020.09.26 18:06 kujm1h1h5778 My (46F) brother (54M) was very mean and demeaning to my son (19M) recently. I asked him to apologize, and he started insulting me. He then tried to apologize the next day but I am not sure if I accept it. Should I accept his apology for the sake of keeping the peace even though he humiliated me?

Partially due to our age differences, I didn't know my brother very well growing up. But he recently moved nearby and we started socializing more with each other in the past year. Before then, I usually only saw him at family events, and we always got along.

I had him over for a backyard BBQ and during dinner, he was talking to my son. My son is a good kid mostly, but he has had some issues in the past with drugs and grades. Not severe issues, he isn't an addict or anything. He is going to college (well, not right now, because covid). There was just a point where he was sort of crazy terms of partying and sleeping around and stuff like that, and now hes much better (before covid he was improving, its not just the lockdown which made him calm down). And again, its not like it was ever that bad. He was a popular guy in high school, it wasn't different from how a lot of my guy friends were, but it still worried me. My brother knows about this stuff, I've vented to him before about it. But he started sort of berating my son at the BBQ at various points. Saying all of the weed he does (which he doesn't really do much anymore) is gonna make him 'end up in a gutter' and that he cant be sleeping around because he needs to find one girl and stay with her. It was definitely his tone which was very demeaning. He then critiqued my sons outfit, which was an adidas tracksuit, and said that when hes with family he should be wearing something proper like a polo shirt or a buttondown. Then he also starts saying "and whats with the beard? no job is going to hire you like that, do you even care about a job?" and at that point I told him to calm down and stop critiquing him. He treated it like a joke, but it was obvious it wasn't. It was just very obvious he had something out for my son, other people noticed, and honestly, if I knew he was like this, I would have never have told him anything about my son. My son honestly looked visibly upset at some of the questions, he mostly just didn't respond or looked uncomfortable. My brother was a few beers in, and he was a bit drunk at this point.

I called him later that day and pointed out how demeaning he was being to my son, and asked him why he was like that. He said my son seemed like a 'typical millennial playboy' (whatever the hell that means) and that he clearly needs a discipline lesson. I said that was ridiculous, and that he is not his parent, I am, and I wanted him to apologize to my son. He got upset at me for even suggesting that, and went on this rant about how I probably sheltered him as a kid, how the way that he is is my fault for raising him wrong, that hes clearly gonna end up unsuccessful because he never had any real discipline or hardship in his life, saying I was raising him as friend and not a parent and alllll this other stuff. I was stunned. Now he was aiming his hatred at me. For one, it was clear he was very drunk, which I didn't realize until he was ranting. I actually ended up just hanging up on him because I was so upset.

The next day he left me a voicemail with a lengthy apology and said he would apologize to my son. He said he didn't know what got into him, and that he doesn't often drink because he turns really nasty and he feels horrible for that. I honestly did not want to forgive him, what he said went way past normal drunken assholeness and into the category of "sober thoughts equal drunken words". It was clear he believed what he was saying. I didn't respond to his voicemail.

What do I do? I feel like so hurt and uncomfortable from his words. I do not really want to accept an apology, but at the same time it might just be better for everyone and for the family at large if I do. I keep thinking about how my husband (died 9 years ago) had all these problems, much worse than this, with his siblings and they always resolved them and were like best friends the next day, partially out of necessity to 'keep the peace' even if they still held bad feelings for each other. But its just hard for me to do that. How am I supposed to deal with family events now? How do I deal with our other siblings who want to see us both? We have a trip to new york planned next month with him and 3 other family members, what happens then? Its all so confusing. I am so mad at him for doing this.

TL;DR - - my brother insulted my son at a BBQ, and then went on to insult me for 'raising him wrong'. Now he wants to apologize, and I don't really accept his apology.

2020.09.26 16:54 Rubyinfinte Does this story need to be changed what areas should be kept and what should be thrown away I’m worried about by mistake kinda appropriating so never finished this story.

So background is I am a black women with a intrests in fantasy anime and a lot of other stuff
As a kid I use to read manga in school
I was inspired by manga to create a story at first it was going to be a manga but then as my art is not good egnough and I wanted it to be detailed and fleshed out I decided to make it a novel because it was based on folklore I learned from anime manga such as a bakoneko (I looked up it after reading it) And the the story idea later had a cat cafe and it was supposed to be a rich store which was originally a Tokyo thing I decided to make the place Tokyo Also I feel the character a power is very much based on magical girls
It’s went through a lot of revisions as I got older and was never publish especially as I got older I was not sure if I was the best person to do this and if I should change it significantly
I made the main character white Then half Japanese and half white and moves to the us
I did not use a black person because The character struggles with anger problems From what I have seen we have the worst representation of angry characters She however has other redeeming traits
I decided to have to black women come in the story later on.
and there are other characters that are Japanese
also main characters just not the point of view (I just found it easier to write from her point of view)
I watch Japanese tourism videos and the story is not really focused on the setting
I’m worried though about having them in japan and not using my race as the main character
Also my confusion on how a half white half Japanese person that moves Japan with her family would be treated especially with anger problems I heard multiple stories about people’s experiences
I though that as I heard Tokyo there is more English translations because it has the most tourism it would be a good place for different races interacting
I wanted to visit Japan to get a idea about it aswell one day also I have wanted to visit places there
Should I just forget the story? Should I recreate it in a completly different way? or do I just need to have more references?
The story is a fantasy mystery comedy
But at its heart it’s about characters struggling and going through abuse and trying to heal The Japanese and Spanish (long story) supporting/ main characters (before the black women come into story
Recruit this 17 year old as there coach/ boss after there leader dies young and (there all teen Agee’s some late teens) And there in grief and trying to move on As it’s a strange comedy they recruit this character because she’s bossy but also because she belives strongly in justice (They kinda loosely stalk her in the street which relates to the fantasy part of the story) She becomes very bossy and clearly does not get it she makes them perform drills (though they also stop bad people so kinda makes sense)
As the main character begins to understand as they open up from missions and stories and bonding people digging up stuff That there coping with grief and abuse more stories are shared (though the grief is actually not true because the characters alive but faked there death due to the fantasy side like there grieving but she’s alive )
She then realizes to stop taxing then and just to support them (kinda quickly)also things happen to her but that’s another story
I’m also worried about one of the black characters outfit if I also end up making it into a manga or include inscription
But because I like lucky star origami it’s based on it a dress should I just switch it to a regular star?
She is a immortal being that was trapped for safety reasons and to help others in a sword that also looks like a star wand the sword is
As I really like origami lucky stars is
I would really want to know if I should ditch most of the story or if there are some parts I should get out
I told a friend I shared a small draft too that I was worried about the location She though I could change it to a different world I am thinking of it but I just kinda feel like completely changing the world is hard like combining New York and Japan works but I just feel then it should have differences from earth It can be done But like the story is already kinda strange like most my ideas it’s hard slightly to think of a complete fantasy world for the character as I would like big differences though as it’s already fantasy it could not be too hard just guess it feels werid as I kinda did a lot of trying to see if this could work for the ( another part of some of the characters back story’s takes place May years ago in a country I did research about it wasn’t too much trouble but like I kinda wanted to know before I dump it)a opinion about this and the other parts that I’m not sure is problematic (basically most of what I listed) As even if I get rid of those what if the whole story has problems

2020.09.26 15:05 Ricardo-sousa Is this somebody i can be friends with for a long time?

I have thought about SOO many things about this person and what she was to me. What she saw in me. Made many posts here. I just can't get my head straight in this and i need you guys help. I'm just going to tell you who she is and what has happened between me and her, then you guys can help me come into a conclusion.
She is 31, i am 25. She lives in New York and is dating a company owner (5 years relationship). I am less than half of that.. I'm a warehouse worker (temp, even) and live in Portugal. She has her own business and has alot of money herself. Technically she is from Portugal too, has a house here 10 minutes from me... But she's only here for like once a year.

1- We've been speaking for almost 4 months on the internet. I showed her a very different side of me. Confident, not a loser. I stuck talking to her for pretty much all day everyday. She was the one keeping the conversations going pretty much everytime and was ALWAYS the one starting them. Told me pretty much everything about her family. She told me about her medical condition which causes seizures and which was caused by a stab when she was younger. She gets angry very easialy, but at that point, never with me. Takes many meds for it.
2- Our first argument ever started when not too long after we met she started sending flirty comments. She told me a story about this one guy who made a video to her crying about liking her and i completely misread the situation and thought she was playing them like she was playing with me. She called the convos she had with him Normal like the ones she had with me. Meaning flirting too? But that wasn't it. She took her social media pic and bio down because i left her. This lasted a day and we made up afterwards.

3- She told me she was growing lots of feelings for me during that time before we met up. Says we connected, and i was very supportive of her. And 1 week before we met up in real life (she'd be here for 2 weeks), she told me she and her boyfriend broke up. She was specific all of a sudden about wanting to have s*x with me. God these things escalated..

3- We met up, i was a stuck up shy guy hanging with her, her cousin and a couple of his friends. Didn't think we would go too far and i'd just be going home after we ended hanging with her cousin.. No.. Both me and her went to take a walk near the beach (5 am) and ended up making out alot (my first time doing this yay), what happened next? My soft side took control of me, and when i took her him on an uber, i didn't go in with her. I left home on that same one. Only to come across texts of her telling me to not leave... I've been eating myself over this everyday.. Should i still be proud of what happened that night?

4- met up again next time but at her place, and we did the usual, kissing, talking, and playing. She went to her room as i was going after her but nothing happened AGAIN, because i didn't go for it (i think thats it), she did tell me she wanted to toss me to bed but didn't know what my reaction would be. God these 2 nights were great but also destroy me. My phone also broke that night and she felt guilty, and was begging me to fix it for me, but i just brought a new more expensive one.

5- After that things just became weird. Kept arguing about dumb things and it got to the point where we didn't see eachother for a day. Told me my sarcastic attitude of not taking her serious reminded her of her boyfriend (always said she didn't know what he was), and it was a turn off for her. That she wanted someone who is supportive.
6- Then we'd just meet up almost everyday at bars and then go make out in the car (her mother was always home).. We never went thaaaat far other than i guess me sucking her chest lols. What am i to her? She stopped wanting to have s*x as she wanted initially, i think i didn't turn her on which is acceptable because i was still shy around her, and we'd just make out. Kiss when leaving. She said that her mom was home, which im pretty sure its true... then said it was because my attitude changed alot to the bad side when i wasn't with her, which was a turn off. I did change alot before meeting up with her, and she also said it was because i didn't talk alot and she does go around like that.
Imo, i'm pretty certaint we just didn't connect irl as much (last option).

7- THE ARGUMENT. 3rd to last time we met, we had an intense argument via text, again, mostly because i have trouble believing what she feels. The WOOOOORSEE part of me believes she never had any sort of feelings for me, that she replaced me with someone else during that period of time she was here, that i'm just someone she uses to make herself feel good.
Of course she also told me she absolutely hates me for going back and forth of having feelings for her. First i said i didn't, then i did, then i wasn't too sure. I went on an uber to fix things and she was absolutely dead upset. She told me everything to my face about how i made her feel, that she wasn't a doll for me to play with her feelings, that her feelings for me were big. Almost cried and didn't yell because it was very late. I explained what i truly felt and that night while we went walking around outside, ended up making up, kissing and everything was perfect again.
7- She lies to me about having a daughter. That girl is her sisters daughter. She still lies and lied to my face. And goes into detail by the way, says she might not be able to come back next month of in december because of her school. That she has her fathers eyes, whatever. She has no clue i know the truth.

8- She told me she'd be going home and grab her things and leave her boyfriend. Not to leave him for me, but simply leave him. Well that didn't happen. But we still talk a few, but not as much. We argue alot because i find it hard to trust her and idk how to feel. But she wants things to be the same as before and keep us together talking.

I guess what can i say, she wants me to want her. If she gets mad and says she wants to stop talking to me, she'll go nuts if i i'm like "whatever"

MY QUESTION IS, does she care for me? Is it possible i can mantain this friendship? I don't think i have feelings for her like that, but i'm definitely attached. Having her to talk too is enough for me.
