This past week…
OK, so what happened this past week and what’s going through my noggin…
One of, if not the biggest things this week was this kick-ass video showing a few new things:
The free-roam looks frickin’ sweet! It was one of the things I was least hyped about as the RTWM never does that much for me…it fun, but not why I buy the game. However, the free-roam has added to the mode so much that I’m actually looking forward to playing them.
The roster reveals…as well as a bunch of wrestlers I’m not too fussed about seeing (I like playing as them but since I knew they’d be there, it’s not much of a ‘reveal’) we also got to see a few mystery spots filled – Shelton Benjamin and Mike Knox, two released superstars are on the roster…this is great news on both accounts. We also saw The Rock and Steve Austin revealed. Now, I could have guessed (and did) all four being in this weeks reveal but it’s still great to see them there. Disappointments? Of course, no Austin vest…and a very poor stunner animation. I’ll get over the vest not being in and I’m pretty sure there’ll be more than one stunner in the game, so I can change that up in his moveset. Highlight for me? Without a doubt…the COBRA!!!
There’s a lot of talk about who the remaining 5 legends are. It would appear that THQ have them listed in alphabetic order…so that should help narrow down the possibilities a little…plus, Marcus has said no to a few (Rude, Slaughter, Dibiase Sr. Goldberg, Lawler and a couple more). I still think macho might be in…he could be listed as either Randy Savage or Macho Man and both would have a spot open. Ultimate Warrior would fit in their too…and although everyone’s writing him off because he did very naughty things to Santa in a comic strip, it’s a possibility…plus, Marcus did his ‘No comment’ thing that he did for Austin and Rocky. I’d love to see Curt Hennig as a legend and LOD even more so. Speaking of LOD – the doomsday device is back in this year (confirmed by Marcus) so it might be possible that it’s reanimated BECAUSE LOD are two of the legends? Just a thought. But if you take the alphabetic thing into account, they’d have to be in under ‘Road Warrior Hawk’ or ‘Road Warrior Animal’ to make it. Regardless, if their entrance makes it in again, the shoulder pads and the D-day…I’m a happy fella!
Press Conference Sunday!
Marcus says that there’s a press conference in Dallas on Sunday (HIAC PPV). They should be throwing out a ton of last minute info on stuff like CAW mode, SD and perhaps explaining the 100+ match claim. Knowing the THQ marketing this year…it’ll tell us nothing and just have a bunch of kids playing SVR 11 demos with guest appearances from a few superstars.
New Video in it’s way
Marcus mentioned that a new video has just been completed. I suspect that it might go up on Sunday like the other gameplay video that Bryan did but then, it’s the HIAC PPV so maybe not…
We’re in the month of October…the waiting is almost over!!!
Not much recently…you can use superstar threads in Uni-mode. Regardless of what those nitwits on the GR8Cast say, there is only THREE DLC packs coming out in total. Not seven. The glamslam is not in. HBK has an alt attire or two…one is the tights with the broken hearts designs. In Uni-mode, you can defend a brands title on another brands show. As well as being able to do it yourself, Superstars turn heel/face on their own in Uni-mode.
