Not sure anything in WWE 2K15 will be as satisfying as playing Daniel Bryan and kicking Hulk Hogan in the bean.

I can name one! Hollywood Hulk Hogan driving a tractor trailer through an ambulance he put Daniel Bryan in. Oh wait, he did that to the Rock!

No that was the Xbox 360 version which was gutted. PC has full functionality.

I can report that the 2013 Carrie falls between the 1976 Carrie (better) and the 2002 Carrie (way way way worse, I'm sorry Angela Bettis). Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore are awesome in this, but it was a bit goofy at points. The tense scenes were drawn out really long, and it was more melodrama where I feel like the original was more horrific in its realness. You knew those bullies, you knew that quiet religious girl, you knew that borderline parent.

Still worth watching I think. They did keep the "dirty pillows" line.

I've not seen the 2002 Carrie, but I have an appreciation for the 2013 version as well.  There's a certain... visceral feel to the character in this version, even if the build up felt a little more flat than the original version of the film.

One thing though that truly separates the two versions in my mind, and props the original up above the newer versions: Sissy Spacek, and those CRAZY EYES... Moretz is almost too 'cute' in comparison.

All-New Ghost Rider #7

Gabe cries while eating cabbage.

The end.

No but seriously this issue paid off. Not only does Gabe cry while eating cabbage, we get a Ghost Rider showdown AND learn more about Eli and start to get hints about why he is what he is AND that devil's bargain finally causes major problems for Robbie. Something about the showdown with the old Ghost Rider causes Robbie to get really weak allowing Eli to take over.

We then find out, through some exposition from Johnny Blaze and from Eli himself that he was a scary serial killer Satanist. Robbie is really screwed. I feel like it's hinting that Eli is basically an evil version of Johnny Blaze - someone who made a deal with the devil and became the Ghost Rider - but who did it for all the wrong reasons instead of the right ones, and now he's contained inside Robbie Reyes.

Eli is out for revenge and isn't mean to Gabe, but he's just not interested in the needs of a child so poor Gabe doesn't get his mac and cheese for dinner and has to eat cabbage out of the crisper drawer. I'm awful because the over the top way that Gabe is written and just the whole thing was a little comical.

Now Blaze is after Eli, Eli is on a rampage, and meanwhile Guero and the Blue Krue are messing up the city. It's building to a really cool place!

I hope Heroes of the Storm gets Blackthorne as one of their old school characters.

My BBS username in the 90's was Tarquin after one of the drivers in Rock n' Roll Racing. Honestly, I'd be happy with any R&R representation.

I pre-ordered Ghost Racers. It looks like it will have at least five different Ghost Riders including Robbie Reyes, one of those guys on the bikes is probably Blaze or Ketch, a CHAINSAW MOTORCYCLE Ghost Rider, a CENTAUR Ghost Rider(!?!!), and I have no idea what the hell that thing on the left is.

Could be goofy fun.

+Stras Acimovic I like Ghost Rider a lot and I've never really dug deep into all the Ghost Rider comics so this is kind of a project. I'm reading the new stuff but will probably eventually dig into the old ones too.
