“I Hear This Place Needs Cleaning Up.”

SHAYNE has arrived…and a new era of GWF history beckons!

Shayne was considered the best wrestler in the cosmos that WASN’T in the GWF…until 2129! He’ll arrive from the WIC (Wrestling is Cosmic) and he’s taking no prisoners!

He was born in Wyoming, America on Earth  and he’s traveled the cosmos to make a name for himself in the ring. Don’t mess with Shayne, he’s a rattlesnake! He’s the “Real Ordeal” and “The One Left Standing After SHOWDOWN” which is his finishing move. His famous motto is “Eye 4 Eye” and you’ll find out why!

Shayne has recuperative powers like no other. Don’t get him angry, he can take a beating and come back like a man possessed! His comebacks are so electrifying they are called “Shayne’s Fury.” The fans will go berserk!

Speaking of the fans, they’ve been waiting and hoping that Shayne would enter the GWF during the blight of Black Death. It’s a time when true heroes, real down-to-earth men, are sorely needed.

The “Real Ordeal” will shock the galaxy by filling Endgame’s vacant spot on Power Force. But can he co-exist with Monolith? And can he stop the rampage of Black Death Endgame?

The era of Shayne will begin in BLACK DEATH 2129! This is the big one!

Lord Nexus Brings Kenji and Giant Azuma to the GWF in 2129!

The legend, Lord Nexus, is back! And he’s not alone.

Nexus makes his dramatic return to the GWF after a decade-long absence. Wait till you hear the reasons for his return!

Lord Nexus will introduce a new tag team to the GWF. It’s KENJI and GIANT AZUMA in a team called Titan Samurai! KENJI is a master of martial arts in the style of Rising Sun.  He is also a master of submission finishers and uses no less than three to finish off opponents! Imagine a feud pitting KENJI against Thantos in a battle of finishers!

Then there’s GIANT AZUMA, a sumo wrestler who will be very hard to get off his feet. His giant splash, ZENSHO, will finish off many an opponent. How will the “new look” STAR WARRIOR compete with this huge mass of humanity?

BLACK DEATH 2129 starts mailing on July 16 and it’ll rock! Order now and get your fed ready for big-time action!

On Being a Hero, CotG Fans, John Cena, and Endgame’s Heel Turn

I have learned once again that Champions of the Galaxy fans are incredible and that this is more than a game.

A few days ago we posted our fourth teaser for the upcoming Black Death 2129 expansion. This is tradition, been doing it for years. My company posts sneak previews of new game cards leading up to the big release date which this year is July 13 at GalactiCon and mailings begin on July 16.

Every now and then a new game story strikes a nerve. Monday was one of those times.

Endgame had been going against the grain for years. He was a squeaky clean hero in a universe of shady characters and opportunists. In popular entertainment the modern concept of a hero has evolved towards gritty, tough, edgy guys. In comic books this is reflected in the popularity of dark characters like Batman or guys willing to bend the rules like Iron Man. Wrestling’s attitude era saw a plethora of antiheroes like the Rock and Steve Austin.

Endgame quickly became an anachronism, a throwback to an era where heroes were truly uplifting and noble ALL THE TIME, even when the going got tough. As anyone who follows the GWF knows, Endgame has been battling to do the right thing for years and his efforts to guide others to do the same has often fallen on deaf ears as he has been mocked by the Black Death team, heel teams, and even people who should be on his side like Monolith, Overmaster, and Swarm.

Some game fans were calling him boring as he stuck to his guns. Sometimes it’s hard to make a character that sees the world in black and white interesting, especially if he’s a hero (villains, by definition, are always edgy). Endgame was coming off as stodgy, even arrogant, as he became the measure of all this is good and right.

Then suddenly he snapped.

It took some help though. In 2129 Endgame will be possessed by the Black Death plague that is sweeping the galaxy. Suddenly all those years of frustration will be unleashed against everyone but mainly those that undermined his efforts at every turn.

It is the ultimate cynical statement even though I don’t intend it as a statement but as a good story which recognizes that Endgame, like the rest of us, is a human being with a limit to his patience. Plus the wind is against him as his turn to the dark side has been aided by Black Death possession.

Sur and Bex may wind up wishing it never happened. Endgame’s sense of right and wrong may be too highly developed to fall in line with Black Death. But in the meantime EVERYONE better beware!

The obvious parallel is to WWE and John Cena. Squeaky clean as he is many fans don’t like him but WWE so far hasn’t turned him heel. If they do it’ll be huge.

The WWE knows you can’t take such a  turn lightly. Cena is firmly entrenched as a hero as Endgame was.  That makes the turn more potent, more powerful, a deeper form of betrayal as when Hulk Hogan joined the nWo.

Ever since the announcement about Endgame I’ve been involved in discussions on social networks with game fans about the nature of good and evil and the symbolism of Endgame’s heel turn. It’s amazing! I love how deeply game fans relate to the characters.

One game fan wrote a long treatise about good and evil and how Endgame cannot be forgiven, Black Death or not, for giving in to his lower impulses. He discussed the state of mankind today, religious ideals, and other lofty topics. I was proud that such depth could arise from the story lines of Champions of the Galaxy.

Perhaps it is no coincidence that as Endgame falls prey to his dark side that the ultimate symbol of GWF nobility is returning — Lord Nexus. I didn’t do this on purpose. Maybe it was unconscious.

In addition, three new heroes are entering the GWF in 2129. Maybe all this was needed to counterbalance the enormity of Endgame’s turn.

And so Black Death 2129 hasn’t even been released and a galaxy-shaking event has taken place. It’s not just a game and it’s not just a heel turn, it is more than that to people who identify with the characters as real people.

They are real to me too and I hope people don’t judge Endgame too harshly. He’s human, just like us. He fought the good fight perhaps longer than many of us would have. And in the end all we need to do is look in the mirror to see that the temptation to put ourselves first and lash out in anger is something we have all done.

That’s why we need heroes, to show us something better and give us inspiration. Hail the return of Lord Nexus!

Meanwhile enjoy the wrath of Endgame, it’ll make compelling drama! He’s taking no prisoners and all those years of pent up frustration will be released in a firestorm! Can anyone stop him?

Until Tricks becomes a saint…

Endgame Goes Postal as Black Death 2129 Nears!

It’s the heel turn John Cena may never make.

He was once the GWF’s moral compass, but Endgame has finally had enough! His turn to Black Death is potentially a cialis shipped overnight deathblow to the GWF side!

Or is it? Can anyone control the lethal rage of Endgame? His first comments to the galaxy, fans, and his own partners (from the Black Death 2129 handbook) are a warning:

“I am Black Death and I am beyond Black Death! I’ll have my revenge against the GWF and against the fans, BUT”—he points to Sur and Bex—“NOBODY controls me!”

He is quick to blame the fans, purchase cialis wrestlers, and his “so-called friends! YOU did this to me. You ALL did this to me! And viagra you will all pay!”

Endgame’s first act as a member of Black Death is femaleviagra-cheaprxstore to challenge End of Days to battle! After otc cialis that woe to the Aethran Overmaster, Monolith, and Swarm as his vendetta against former allies will be intense!

Can anyone stop the rage of Endgame and his finishing move, ENDGAME’S REVENGE? The drama builds as Black Death viagra otc 2129 is due for release on July 13 at GalactiCon and begins mailing on July 16!

 

Paganax is Unleashed in Black Death 2129 as Pre-Orders Begin!

The Heathen Chief is back, long live the king!

Paganax has totally returned to his senses after a “cloud of confusion” came over him when he switched dimensions after coming to the GWF from Primus in 2125. And he’s not happy! The Aethran Overmaster tried to recruit Paganax for his Council of War but dissed the Heathen Chief for his “erratic behavior.” Paganax has not forgotten as a major feud between two titans looms in 2129!

The enemies of Paganax have a lot to fear: his two finishers will be crippling maneuvers and aptly named: ASCENT OF THE KING  and BOW TO THE HEATHEN CHIEF! Can he make the Overmaster “bow” to his will?

Paganax is on the fast track to become a big fan favorite in 2129. But what team will he join? Will he also be feuding with former partner Thraxx? The surprises in store for BLACK DEATH 2129 will astound you!

BLACK DEATH 2129 will be released exclusively at GalactiCon in Jamestown, NY on July 13 and begins mailing on July 16! Pre-order NOW to get it as soon as you can!

Matt Taven is Bringing all the Hoopla to New ROH 6-Pack!

Another Ring of Honor champion is coming to the new ROH 6-Pack!

Matt Taven has been wrestling for Ring of Honor for years, but only after a recent career decision has his profile in ROH really risen.  Taven took part in the 2013 Top Prospect tournament, making it to the finals before ultimately winning thanks to the assistance of Truth Martini.  Under the guidance of Martini, Taven went on to win the ROH TV Title and cement himself as a force in the promotion.

Thanks to his athletic prowess and timely interference from his mentor and the lovely Hoopla Hotties that accompany them, Taven has a successful title reign that he looks to continue for a long time.  There’s no telling the heights this House of Truth disciple can reach and you’ll find out when the Ring of Honor 6-Pack is released!
