I have decided that I will not buy another WWE game until Rad Radford is added as a Legend.
















RAD RADFORD!!!!

Three Hogans were a bit much, but three different Louie Spicolli's I'd defintely dig!





Spicolli!

Yeah, that was rumored for a few days now. Now that there's actual evidence, I feel like Token in the Lord Of The Rings episode.

"I don't want to play anymore...I don't know what I saw, I don't want to know. I'm out."

There's some confusion on whether that happens to any character that you pick, or just to Kurt Angle.

If it happens in any person you pick, it insults us as fans. If it just happens to Kurt, it insults him and us as fans.

I'm sure that this is WWE's fault, but no matter what, I really, really hope THQ loses the license to make the game in this lawsuit the WWE's got against them.

I keep saying the same thing but for me it's the insulting lack of Battlekat!

Well, the game's out today and...I'm gonna wait til it comes in from Gamefly. Everything I've seen about it says, "same old, same old". Even the 360.

Apparently 2007 is a big step backward from the quality to be found in the 2006 edition. Less moves, more glitches, etc. Etc. I've finally tweaked the game to provide some challenging and epic matches. Had a Last Man Standing Match featuring Spike Dudley vs. Mankind that clocked in at 64:37 minutes and I still lost! Lots of dramatic back and forth, high spots and blood was spilled. Smile

Most of my matches now go about 15-20 minutes now if not longer. Twisted Evil

I love the new Ultimate Grapple system, especially when used with the classic grappling system. It's actually pretty fun. But they ahve really shot themselves in the foot with the glitches. The commentary is atrocious, with announcers talking about wrestlers who aren't even in the match, moves misnamed (apparently, Stone Cold, in his advanced career, is using a chair as the Stone Cold Stunner now). DX is introduced as HHH, CAW's coming down with a belt, then the belt disappears, then it reappears. The general vibe of this game is that they spent so much time with certain aspects that they ran out of time to fine-tune basic stuff. It's ridiculous and unprofessional. And you can imagine how much worse it could have been if they tried to develop for the PS3 at the same time as well.

But hey, at least we got a 3D lockerroom.

Yeah, you better believe THQ is getting a letter.

Plus, it looks like the 360 is going to eventually get the nod from me. 64 layers, and a way around the "crotch blur"...CAW heaven, baby.

What settings did you change in the game? I've been trying to find some AI tweaks to improve the matches.

Oh, and STILL NO WAY TO HAVE CPU VS CPU MATCHES FOR CREATED CHAMPIONSHIPS IS TOTAL BULLSHIT!!!

Just saying.

Here's the settings that have provided me with much drama and gnashing of teeth:

KO: OFF
Give Up: ON
DQ: ON
Ring out count: 10
Ring Out: ON
Interference: ON
Escape from Cage Door: ON

Difficulty: Hard
Momentum Charge Speed: Normal
Start out mini games: OFF
Superstar name bars: OFF
Targeting Indicators: OFF
Camera Cuts: ON
Stamina System: ON
Reversal help indicator: OFF

Frequency of Com's usage: Default in the middle is 10 clicks.
Stand Strike Reversal: 9 (-1)
Standing Grapple reversal: 9 (-1)
Ground strike reversal: 9 (-1)
Ground grapple reversal: 9 (-1)
Finisher reversal: 11 (+1)
Weapon attack reversal: 0
Stealing Finisher: 0
Sub A reaction: 9 (-1)
Sub B reaction: 9 (-1)

Damage Balance
Finisher Attack Power: 4 (-6)
Weapon Attack Power: 0 (10)
Backstage Brawl damage: 11 (+1)

Game Balance: This lowers ( I think, it seems that way through testing) the window of opportunity for reversals. The lower the number, the more precise the command must be. I'm trying to figure if this applies to human as well as cpt or is it human vs human.

Standing strike reversal: 8 (-2)
Standing grapple reversal: 8 (-2)
Ground strike reversal: 8 (-2)
Ground grapple reversal: 8 (-2)
Finisher reversal: 8 (-2) It just too easy to reverse Finishers with the default setting.
Weapon attack reversal: 9 (-1)
Momentum rate clean/dirty reaction: 11 (+1)
Momentum rate attacks: 8 (-2)
Momentum rate taunts: 11 (+1)
Stamina rate: 8 (-2)


Lowering the Finisher power really adds to the length of matches. Nothing finer than putting Mankind's head into a steel chair 10 times and he gets up on the count of 5....way too much fun.

I, for one, can't wait for the TNA game.

Thanks, rJ.

And I just found out yesterday, whilst perusing moves, that unless it's a finisher...they've removed the Viagra Driver.

BOO AND SUCH!!

Actually, I found it, but it's only a finisher now. Very Happy

Actually, the game is actually more interesting that the actual product WWE is putting out...and is almost as mistake-heavy.
