Stunt Granny Video Game Review: Bioshock Infinite

bioshockBioshock Infinite is the new story-driven first person shooter from Irrational Games available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.  This is the 3rd game in the series and has the player visiting Columbia, a flying city in 1912, to extract a mysterious young girl and bring her back to New York. With a gripping plot, highly engaging setting, and stunning visuals; Bioshock Infinite overcomes its few flaws and creates one of the freshest and most memorable gameplay experiences I have had an opportunity to play.

Stunt Granny Big 11 Week Ending 5/21/11- Randy Savage Edition

1. Randy Savage as Space Ghost’s grandfather – Whoever wrote this script for him knew what they were talking about (“Have you met Haystacks Calhoun? Leaping Lanny? Wildfire Tommy Rich?”), and Randy’s delivery was freaking hilarious. – Eric

2. Randy Savage freaking out in ICW – My local public library used to have this “Best of International Championship Wrestling” video for rent when I was 10, and although I’d been a wrestling fan for years and knew Savage well already, nothing prepared me for insanity like this.  -Eric

3. Randy Savage vs. Ric Flair, Superbrawl VI – I’ve already posted my favorite Savage vs. Flair match (from WrestleMania VIII), but this one was entertaining as heck (see “Related Videos” for parts two and three). Wow, there are a lot of dead people in this clip. – Eric

4. Randy Savage No Holds Barred Promo – This is one of my favorite promos ever. Savage just goes on and on about fish out of water and then what sounds like whorehouse but he is actually saying our house. Sherri starts climbing the cage and Zeus just yells out Hogan’s name. If I wasn’t for Randy Savage this would be unwatchable. – Jeremy

5. Randy Savage Bitches Hulk Hogan – Too this day this clip makes me happy. As a Savage fan watching him pointing his finger in Hogan’s face and telling him off is fantastic. Even as a kid I was cheering loudly. Then seeing him  kick Brutus Beefcake out of frame was wonderful. I did forget about him tossing Elizabeth around though; yikes. This is one of the more genuine looking moments you can come by. – Jeremy

6. Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan Interviewed by Mean Gene – This segment will forever be stuck in my head. The Mega Powers coming together. Nothing more needs to be said. – Kevin

7. Andre the Giant vs. Randy Savage – From a 1988 Saturday Night’s Main Event. Two of the biggest names ever for the WWF Heavyweight Championship. It may not be as high quality as the ones Eric point out but the star power is there. – Kevin

8. Ultimate Warrior vs. Randy Savage – The Intercontinental Title was worn by the Warrior and Savage was still sporting the WWF Heavyweight Championship in this 1989 match at Madison Square Garden.  I love the Warrior as a child so this one sticks out to me. In part 2, look for Rick Rude mugging to the camera. Awesomeness. -Kevin


9. Bret Hart vs. Randy Savage – Great forgotten match. These two would basically occupy the same space in different wrestling generations.

10. The Ring Bell – One of the most memorable angles of the ’80s, leading up to one of the best matches of the ’80s. Since the WrestleMania 3 match is on a million DVDs, I’ll post the angle instead, since it’s what drew the money. – Dusty

11. The End – Best picture ever. – Dusty
