[GamerTell] Evo 2014: Justin Wong wins Marvel vs Capcom 3 final

Justin WongEverywhere Justin Wong has gone since Evo 2013, people talk about his epic run in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. It ended in a memorable second place finish, but fans are an unforgiving bunch. All they want to know is if you’re going to win, asking the question as if they expect some other response. No guys, totally planning on finishing second again. These uncomfortable conversations won’t happen in 2014, as Wong went got it done.

Wong is famous for improbable comebacks, but none of his typical heroics were necessary against Chris G.

Bret Hart Speaks Out – ’97 Screwjob, WWE Return, HBK, More

Here are highlights from a new Main Event Radio interview with Bret Hart:

On the 1997 Screwjob: “In hindsight, I really wish the whole thing had never happened. It was a lousy way for me to leave the company after being so lucky to be the champion and to have such a great history there. It never was the same after that day. If I could go back I don’t know what I can change to make it go differently. I know that I followed my heart through that whole process. I still believe that I was on the side of the right and did the right things that day. But I do wish that it never had happened and that I could have worked something out beforehand that could have been more productive for everybody.”

On coming back to WWE: “I have way more great memories than I do bad. We had a great 14 years. We had that bad fall-out at the end, which I’m still sensitive about to this day. I suffered a stroke in 2002 that made everything else in my life that happened to that point pale in comparison. It was in the first few hours after I had a stroke that Vince [McMahon] gave me a call. Things were not good between us when that happened. He gave me a big pep talk in the hospital when I suffered my stroke. He talked about improving our relationship and doing things together down the road. I always wanted to be recognized and remembered for what I contributed to the company. He assured me that that would always be the case; to protect my reputation as far as what I accomplished there. Within the first few minutes we cleared so much off of the table. His words were that I was a fighter and that I would get back and get better. As I’ve got better over the years and recovered, I remember those dark hours and I’m greatful for that call. That softened things up for Vince and I and eventually I thumped him at Wrestlemania to write a better ending for us.”

On the Iron Man match with Shawn Michaels: “I was eager to raise the bar. I still think that for an hour match of any kind, no wrestlers have upstaged that match. Probably the hardest pro wrestling match any two wrestlers have ever had. Shawn was a great wrestler and a great athlete. That day when we had that match we were hell-bent on showing that you didn’t have to be a 300-pound steroid freak to make wrestling popular again. I take a lot of pride in the direction that wrestling went.”

On burying the hatchet with HBK: “I found a great relief from forgiveness. Forgiving the whole thing and making peace with it and moving on. What a therapy for me, I felt a million pounds come off my back when that was over. I think Shawn Michaels was carrying a lot of grief and he felt really lousy for his role in everything. How he screwed me over and how he looked that day, it bothered Shawn for a long time. When we made that truce and hugged on Raw, I can see that grief that he carried for so long was all lifted. I realized a few months later what a good thing that was for us. I recommend that to anybody out there who has issues where they can’t forgive someone, try to forgive; it’s really good for your soul.”

On his career-ending concussion: “A lot of people don’t realize how severe a concussion injury is. You have to listen to the doctors. You have to be really careful about them. When I had my injury, so many of the wrestlers and people that I knew didn’t believe I was hurt. I was pushed in the ring for so many weeks and when I finally saw a doctor he told me that my career was over. I had a pounding headache for almost two years, and a lot of side effects and ramifications that never leave. I still have balance issues from a kick to the head from one wrestler who didn’t know his own strength. You can see now that there are a lot of steps being taken that a wrestler who has possibly suffered a concussion is being evaluated properly and you make sure he is safe before getting back in the ring. Back in my day you’d get a pat on the back and get pushed through the curtain. People in all sports are waking up to the fact that concussion injuries are really serious. The ramifications can be long-lasting and severe.”

On the wrestling industry today: “Wrestling today is as good as its every been. Younger, faster, better…

[AppleTell] Review: Tales From the Dragon Mountain 2: The Lair

Mina’s back and ready to take on Strix once more—even in his own lair. Tales From the Dragon Mountain 2: The Lair takes you through village and mountain to find Strix’s lair so you can take another try at ending the wrinkly old menace.

Tales From the Dragon Mountain 2: The Lair

The story in Tales From the Dragon Mountain 2: The Lair develops a little with every encounter, with the character interactions with your surroundings. Keep your eyes open, as there are twenty stone dragon statuettes to collect as an extra achievement. A simple click is sufficient for most of the game interaction, but there are a few things which require click-hold-movement.

As with the other G5 Entertainment games
