Considering hatching Pokemon eggs is one of the key parts of the Pokemon Go mobile augmented reality game, it seemed obvious that there would be some sort of special event for Easter, right? After all, the holiday is typically associated with children having egg hunts, so it all makes sense.
After notable names like Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, and The Miz (among others) showed up on Raw this week as part of roster re-drafting mechanism that the WWE is calling “The Superstar Shake-up,” most wrestling fans expected a handful of talent to make opposite switch from Red to Blue during Tuesday’s SmackDown Live.
3D platformers were once one of the most popular genres in gaming, but they have undoubtedly fallen out of vogue over the last decade or so. Although Nintendo is still doing its best to keep the genre alive with its routinely excellent 3D Mario titles, most developers and publishers long ago abandoned mascot platformers in favor of more “mature” fare like action-adventure and first-person shooter games. Still, for anyone who grew up gaming in the PS1/N64 era, it’s hard not to feel a pang of nostalgia for the glory days of platforming games, as the genre is a shadow of its former self these days.
The Miz may have made an impressive return to Monday Night Raw during the Superstar Shake-up this week, but for most of the past year, he’s been one of the biggest heels on SmackDown Live. If there’s one moment that truly propelled him to the top of fan’s hate list, it was probably that blistering promo that he cut on Daniel Bryan on one of the early episodes of Talking Smack, the WWE’s live post show that they created when SmackDown moved to live television.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was one of the best games of 2016 and while it will be a while before we see another full Uncharted experience again, we at least have an all new chapter in the popular PlayStation series just on the horizon to tide us over.
For years (and years), John Cena has been the main guy for the WWE. And he was paid accordingly, topping the list of “Highest Paid WWE Wrestlers” for a long time. However, he has been working a reduced schedule lately (although still staying plenty busy with reality TV, hosting gigs, and movie work). The result is that he is no longer he highest paid guy in the company.
This week, the WWE is doing a “Superstar Shake-up.” Rather than re-drafting in the wake of WrestleMania 33, it sounds like the respective GMs of Raw and SmackDown and simply making trades or signing “free agents.” The kayfabe story behind it all really doesn’t matter though, because the end result is that each show will have some fresh faces and new feuds will emerge.
Think the video game industry is all fun and games? Think again.
