I was just wondering, have you ever seen Alex Wright and Vanilla Ice in the same place at the same time?
After continually playing WCW vs. NWO World Tour for the NTS, some observations:
--The graphics for the game are impressive, except that Flair looks like a mutant and DDP is really fat.
--Whoever programmed the moves did a bang up job. For the Ultimo Dragon, there's everything you'd expect: tiger suplex, running powerbomb, moonsault, Asai moonsault, Dragon Sleeper. Except they gave Scott Hall a Niagra Driver instead of the Outsider Edge.
--Eric Bischoff is in the game. As a wrestler. Yes, you can be Eric Bischoff. He doesn't have much offense, just armbars and what-not. Whenever I fight him, he kicks me in the nuts repeatedly. That figures. Still, there's nothing more satisfying than having Chris Benoit pin a bloody Bischoff after a powerbomb :)
[Editor's Note: The Eric Bischoff character was a last-minute replacement for Jeff Jarrett.]
--Ditto for Glacier.
--You can go out into the audience and get a variety of weapons, like a table part, chair, bat, etc. Does this game take place in the ECW arena? But when your wrestler goes to grab a weapon, sometimes there isn't one, and the wrestler just shrugs his shoulders. Pretty funny.
--Ric Flair's "power" move: He gives the opponent a chop, he gets chopped, does the Flair flop, begs on his knees, then suckers the guy in and gives him a thumb to the eye.
--It's fun to change the wrestler's attire, so you can have the surfer Sting or Luger in "All American" gear. Is that legal?
--Letdowns: No entrance music or Nitro references. But still an overwhelming thumbs up.
I did not have great seats at Nitro, but I will tell you this. When Chris Benoit hit Billy Idol, we could hear it loud and clear in the UPPER DECK! That had to smart just a little!
Sting and DDP picked up the dummy and waved bye-bye to the croud with the dummy's hands and then Sting got on the second turnbuckle and gave the old Sting holler...HUGE POP! Sting and DDP both walked over to Kelly and Smith, hugs all around, very nice.
They also announced a charity that Jim Kelly is hosting selling candles to benefit research for a disease that his son has, he is terminally ill.
