    Weezer. Does anyone like them?

    They're just a government experiment to generate the most increasingly po-faced responses possible. It's fairly conclusive.

    Dana never seemed to give him a great deal of respect, and he wouldn't need the drama that comes with UFC negotiation. Though they need him in Canada. It's another failing of the UFC to not give him an irresistible deal, but he's also incredibly smart. He wouldn't want to wind up like Fedor or Anderson. And they're the de facto competitors for GOAT outside of JJ. I hope we see him again if he wants it, but otherwise I hope he has a great time doing what he's doing.

    I'm not sure why everyone's acting like Cain lost here. He got injured, and we all got robbed of seeing one of the greats do his thing. Whether he's the HW GOAT or not is up for debate, obviously, but I'd love to see him healthy against Stipe. That would probably answer the question for me - and I say that as a Fedor fan of a loooong time. If Werdum hadn't gone all weird, the end of his career could've put him up there. Presumably if he gets his release he'll be fighting cans for his buddy Kadyrov. Beginning to think that healthy Cain isn't going to happen, but I hope he comes back and shows us how good he is again. The MVP/Page fight was rubbish, and a robbery for me. The sad thing is that British MMA's reputation took the hardest hits on the night.

    The hustle

    I saw Rebel trying to take over in the trailer. It's pretty much a guaranteed staple of any film with con artists in. Still one of my favourite stories to tell though.

    As an update, I'm about 5 hours into Supraland and really enjoying it. The respawning enemies can be annoying, but the puzzling is genuinely clever and keeps the cogs turning at all times. Already worth the £14 I paid.

    I think they'd do well to keep Conor away from anyone dangerous. Have him be a feature and maybe give him a shot if he can string three top 10 wins together. Another loss so soon could really see interest in him drop off. The casual fans he's brought in won't care if he's beating easy opposition - they'll just want to see him win.

    Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS

    Not necessarily. Think of the paintings.

    Shenmue 1&2

    I picked this up too, having not played either in at least 15 years. Quick question - I've got it on Steam, are there any mods worth getting? Or any promising ones that might make it worth holding off?

    Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS

    Some require doubling back. Many don't appear until late in the game.

    Damn right. I could watch these guys fight every week - it was like watching two gunslingers where anything could happen. I feel gutted for anyone who couldn't enjoy that. It might not be prime Anderson, but Adesanya didn't get to have it all his way as we'd predicted. That said, there's a formula to late-stage Anderson - we've seen that exact flying knee against the cage a bunch of times now, and Adesanya had it read. I really don't get why Anderson wants a second Nick Diaz fight. He won the first comfortably, despite both popping. I find it hard to imagine that Diaz is a draw at this point as well. He's a winnable fight, but one that he's... already won. Surely the NC doesn't grate on him that much? Does he want to give a charity payday to one of the old guard? Who knows.

    Dana just appears to be a terrible promoter. You've got Conor and Cerrone - two guys who draw without needing a belt in the fight. But rather than build new stars and making money elsewhere, by having the belt in a separate arena, he thinks "UHHH... PUT THE BELT IN, IT'LL MAKE EVEN MORE!". It can't happen since Dana owns 10%, but god I'd love to see intelligent, capable promotion behind all these guys' livelihoods.

    I just played the demo too - hadn't noticed there was one! I've also bought it.

    Cerrone reckons him and Conor will be fighting for a 155 Interim belt. With Cerrone's last 155 win before Hernandez being John Makdessi in May 2015. And Conor coming off a loss. I know that interim belts mean nothing in light of Ferguson and Covington, but if it's true it makes me pine more and more for a UFC run by someone who doesn't insult the intelligence of every fan.
  15. Wasn't sure which was the best thread for this, but I finally played Mario Kart VR yesterday! At £8 for one lap and about 5 minutes, it's abominably expensive. But it's also a lot of very trippy fun. Kart movement, fans and hand tracking really give this an immersion that I couldn't hope to get at home, and throwing shells with your own hands was great fun. Acceleration felt weirdly hobbled though. I'd recommend it as a gaming novelty, but it won't be essential until the price goes down and the quantity of game goes up. Played a Wing Cycle game too. Played a lot more with the vertigo of the medium, but also felt a lot more low quality, like I remember a lot of VR experiences feeling on my old DK2.
