Shining Force 1&2 or no deal.

This should be a great show, especially since it's free. I think Henderson will beat Rampage, but it won't be an easy match. I really don't think we'll see another first-round downer like we did in Rampage vs. Liddell, but I don't see it going five rounds, either.
CroCop will destroy Kongo. In the fights I've seen Kongo has used his strength and size to push his opponents around a bit, but his technique is very shallow and full of holes. I think CroCop is big enough and hits hard enough to neutralize Kongo's muscle without much trouble. Plus CroCop is coming off a humiliating KO, so he'll come in looking to redeem himself in spectacular fashion.
I don't really care about the Bisping Hammil fight, but it would be interesting to see the crowd deflate after watching Bisping take a loss on his home turf.
There's also the Alexander vs. Sakara fight to look forward to, just to see what Alexander can do after completely destroying Keith Jardine in his last fight. Some people have been claiming that he'll be the next champ, but I think he still has a heck of a lot to prove before he gets anywhere near a title, especially in the ridiculously stacked Light Heavyweight class.
Remember, if you're planning to watch the fight on Spike on Saturday night you'll want to stay away from MMA or sports sites that day, since the fight will be shown on tape delay due to the time difference.
As much as I really, really want to play this game right now, I think it's wise to delay until 2008. This holiday season is packed with big releases that would spell doom for Culdcept. Sure it won't do phenomenally well no matter when it's released, but at least it has a fighting chance if it's released in Q1 2008.
I grew up in Spokane, which is the second largest city in Washington. It's right near the Washington-Idaho border, and there are a lot of great outdoor recreation activities really close by. Skiing, fishing, hunting, snomobiling, camping, hiking, boating, you name it. Spokane is not a big city, but it's big enough that it doesn't feel completely uncivilized.
I also lived and worked in Seattle for a couple years, and I loved it over there. It reminds me of a smaller, cleaner, wetter San Francisco. The people in Seattle are totally laid back and for the most part very liberal. Lots of hippies and a great music scene. Again, plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, Puget Sound, and gorgeous rain forests.
Central Washington...well, it's pretty barren. There's not much to see in the middle of Washington. Moses Lake is a big lake in the middle of nowhere, but it's nothing special. I went to college at Washington State which is out in the middle of a bunch of wheat fields. It's a good school, and it's a pretty nice campus, but there's not much to do out there.
Winter?!?! Aw man, I really want to play this game now. This is easily my most anticipated game of the year. However, I can understand the need for additional time to get the localization right. The last Culdcept game had such terrible translation that it was difficult to understand the functions of some of the cards.
