Let’s Blackout Again

In a surprising turn of events I found myself once again temporarily in possession of the newest Call of Duty after my girlfriend picked it up from Redbox this weekend.

Last week I put together a respectable few hours of Blackout.

This week I returned to my usual Battle Royale streaming form and put together some utterly atrocious matches for most of this episode.

I did have a few top ten finishes and finished relatively strong a few other times but for my personal tastes I finished in the lower half to two thirds way too often.

Had fun though even if I was stinking up the joint.

Playing Something More than a Little Different

So I’ve fallen in love with a delightfully strange game about murder, mystery and high school.

It’s called Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and it’s something else.

The game is a “visual novel” of sorts with a brilliant murder mystery full of unexpected and wild turns.

Check it out, I’ve posted the first installment below.

Be forewarned though, with the upcoming mega huge releases this week I don’t know how regular this series will be but I intend on playing through at least this first game.

Caught a Late Week Case of the “Mondays”: The OrNERDnary Podcast #72

The week started strong with lots of Call of Duty: Blackout and Forza Horizon 4 but mid week I took a turn and ended up feeling all kinds of off and bad the rest of the week.

This resulted is an episode that barely made it across the 30 minute mark.

But in that 30 minutes I discuss:
-All kinds of news relating to Red Dead Redemption 2 from file sizes, interesting distribution news and even an utterly absurd hot take that inspired what next week’s show will likely be about.
-Forza Horizon 4 may well be my all time favorite racing game.
-Surprise cancellations on Netflix
-Hitman wants us to kill Sean Bean
-Upcoming stuff I’m excited for
-Will I or won’t I stream something scary before the month ends?
-Sony making possibly the smartest delay ever made
-And more

Introducing the PolyNerdic Round Robin Special Cup: A PolyNerdic ProWrestling Thing for my Personal Amusement

So you’ve no doubt noticed that over the last few weeks I’ve become enamored with the production of a semi-regular series showcasing my own brand of fantasy wrestling booking.

For several weeks now I’ve used the fantastic Fire Pro Wrestling World to put together shows utilizing wrestlers from all over the globe, putting them in matches that in many cases would never, ever have the chance of occurring in the real world.

I’m not going to lie, I’ve enjoyed the hell out of these productions for multiple reasons, from amusing myself with the dream match-ups to the fact that these live streams are very relaxing as I merely have to talk over the action and not really devote any attention to controlling the action.

I have a lot of fun doing these and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future as they make for great relaxing streams that last about two hours and often draw more attention during those hours than most of my streams of longer more action oriented games.

That said one of the coolest things in sports, even pre-determined ones like pro wrestling, are tournaments.

New Japan Pro Wrestling does multiple round robin tournaments a year from the Best of the Super Juniors, the World Tag League to the big one, the G1 Climax.

Since these tournaments are generally pretty damn awesome to behold I’ve decided that PolyNerdic Pro Wrestling needs it’s own version of the G1 a little something I’m jokingly referring to as the PolyNerdic Round Robin Special Cup or the super smooth, roll off the tongue name of PNR2S Cup.

I’ve gone with two brackets of 7 competitors each, making the entire field a nice even 14 combatants.

Of course that means provided there are no tie scores, we’re looking at roughly 43 matches to get through it all.  That means I’ll need to break things up into multiple installments as not even I would want to sit through that many matches in one go.

Here are the brackets:



As you can see there are some potentially amazing match-ups as well as a few that exist solely to amuse me.

Stay tuned for future installments of this tournament as I think it will be a lot of fun to watch and of course the “winner” will headline a future PNPW show against whomever the champion happens to be.

Thanks for humoring me.
