Create-a-match?

So there’s something posted up on the CAWs.ws forum…it’s in German from wrestlinggames.de:

Translation:
the game has been tested in the new GamePro. most important news that I had not heard here, is to edit the possibility matches. one can eg an iron man match play in the cage.
is explained in detail in the test did not. I hope it like with the n64 games, is there one could almost always a lot of cool combos set
.

If that’s true, and I have thought this to be the case for a while, then SVR11 is complete and reeking of PURE awesomeness in my estimation. Now I must say that this is UNCOMFIRMED! This has not been announced by THQ and it is has not been posted by a gaming site as coverage of the press conference either. I’m treating it as pure speculation or simply as a rumor. However, it certainly does fit in with what Marcus and others have been saying about the ‘100+’ match claim…and it’s not a specific match in itself, but a match-type right? I have to warn anyone reading this that even if it is true…you shouldn’t immediately think ‘ROYAL RUMBLE IN A CELL!’ or ’10 MAN TLC IN 3 STACKED CELLS!’…You have to be realistic. You would probably be able to create a match similar to the HIAC opener – a 3 way, submissions count anywhere match…or a 4 man elimination…or an Extreme Rules ladder match. Even the last one, I’m thinking twice about…but if you can stipulate that a match is, say, 2 out of 3 falls…or a falls count anywhere TLC match then I’ll be MORE than happy.

Whether or not this is true…or whether the remaining legends are the Brooklyn Brawler and Pez Whatley…SVR11 is by far the best looking wrestling game in history. I say ‘best looking’ as I haven’t played it yet but it certainly seems to have the most promise.

Prophetic Roster
I was just thinking how well the roster is turning out…well, I know we still don’t have it in full but THQ added Paul Bearer a long while back and he returned a month before the game comes out. Also, having Nexus members, whether they have the arm band and shirt or not, is pretty awesome.

Something to remember is that there’s a DLC pack 3. If people say ‘no comment’ or ‘wait and see’ or there’s something that you think should be in the game…it might still be coming.

New Info on Wednesday
The press conference that covered ‘tons’ of info on SVR11 took place in Dallas on Sunday. It’s said that the info will come out (or at least some of it) this Wednesday (source: http://twitter.com/#!/stephensonmc ). No idea where it’ll come from…IGN? Gamespot? The official site? If it comes out Thursday or Friday, don’t shoot Marcus (or me)…it’s 90% that it should be then but you never know.

CAWs.ws
I recently posted on CAWs.ws (I’m the Invisible Man) that I was embarrassed to be part of their community based on some of the comments directed at THQ and other members of the forums…I stand by that. I really wish that the decent SVR fans had a place to call their own where the trolls and idiots weren’t allowed. Perhaps that’s something I should make? An exclusive, invite-only forum?

Is it me or did Raw have a bigger and more impactful feel to it than the HIAC PPV?

Shoutout
I have a post that’s remained in the drafts folder for a week…it was called ‘Marcus and THQ’…and then renamed ‘Lazy THQ, really? REALLY?’. I’ll post it at some ¬†point but wanted to point out that although Marcus gave me a shout out on his Twitter (see quote below) that it won’t alter any opinions I offer. I am always ¬†100% unbiased in my blogging and will remain so. Regardless, it was very flattering!
