I got the idea from reading threads that some of you are video game fans too! So for stuff on video games like news, interesting pieces, talk about your CAWs (Create a Wrestler) and more this is the place to see and post them!

So pieces can be this top 10 poll for Best additions to the pro wrestling genre:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/top10/2112.html

Meanwhile for news on the latest games here's a piece talking about if the next R vs. SD game will be online and when it might come out, but also how THQ now having settled the lawsuit and renewed a deal with WWE to do the games will be doing a new arcade style game Jim Ross and Howard Finkel are voicing for called WWE All-Stars.
http://www.gamespot.com/news/6271401.html?om_act=convert&om_clk=newstop&tag=newstop%3Btitle%3B17

I didn't know Cena could jump 20 feet into the air to do a FU...I mean, AA heh. Now the Rock doing them that's just his Scorpion King powers at work! Joking aside it looks very Def Jam Vendetta styled which I did like and played (I own the first one still).

Finally I do own R vs. SD 2006 which introduced the GM mode I still have fun with a lot. I got tons of CAWs from anime/video game characters like Rock Lee, Cammy, Hinata Hyuga, Kamina and Faust, to indy talent like M-Dogg 20 (who recently got a tryout match on WWE Superstars as Matt Cross) and Lufisto! And of course got myself and friends as CAWs-my finishers at the moment are the Lasso from El Paso and the 99 Crusher. Feel free to post CAW stuff here too!

Enjoy!

my kid whoops my ass all day long at Smackdown vs Raw 2010! she plays as Cena and i play as Taker.

i just wish there were codes for secret hidden characters like Stone Cold, Mankind, Diesel, Razor Ramon etc. etc.... but of course all the trademark and copyright issues prevent such things. i know if u take the time, u could create them urself, but i simply dont have that kinda time, and my daughter has no interest in creating Ultimate Warrior or King Booker for me. so i guess im stuck with playing as Taker...

very cool that they have alot of the old entrance themes available for ur CAWs. my kid's wrestler enters to Stone Cold's music! but im not sure they have Jimi Hendrix 's Voodoo Child available in case i wanna create Hollywood Hogan... sucks...

shes also unlocked all the secret characters except for Ezekiel Jackson, who i would like to see! i wonder wat rating they gave him for this game...

I can answer that for you nohworryz he's got 75 overall for his rating in SvsR 2010.

As far as my own WWE gaming goes well i've got all the Smackdown series on PS 2 and proably will get the 2011 version when it comes out.Like trigunkwan i've got a lot of CAW's mostly on 2006 from one's i've thought of to CAW's of anime/gaming charcters.Am currently thinking of doing something like the nexus angle in the new storyline creator feature in the 2010 version as well as do some create a ppv cards on 2006 starting with a tag team tournament.

Well because I own the game for my N64 still somewhere in my old boxes, give this flashback review looking back 10 years ago to...NO MERCY for the Nintendo 64!

http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/MatMatters/2010/07/16/14739551.html

One of the deepest games to date with the ability to have around EIGHT finishers (1 from behind, 1 in front, 2 in the corner, 1 rebound from ropes, 1 from the top rope and 2 from the ground!), 70 person roster and a deep CAW it still spawns emulators for that system! Oh and FEAR my Ken Masters and Hans Moleman CAWs for that one!

From http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/news/149614/THQ-Announces-New-Details-For-The-Next-WWE-Smackdown-vs.-Raw-Video-Game.htm the press release on the next RAW vs. Smackdown game!

Some notes:

-The story-driven Road to WrestleMania(R) mode will return with significant updates and new storylines, including the ability to freely roam through locker room areas, select opponents, break into impromptu matches and fulfill destinies based on player choices.

-Searching and sharing content will be greatly simplified through improvements to the highly regarded WWE Community Creations feature, which generated nearly 10 million downloads in its franchise debut.

-WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011 will also boast the franchise's largest online feature set to date, including a robust downloadable content (DLC) plan slated to include playable WWE Superstars, WWE Divas, alternate ring gear and new arenas. Online access and the game's first DLC package, which is scheduled to include WWE Superstar Chris Masters(R) (playable character), WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio(R) ("Dia de los Muertos" Halloween-themed attire) and WWE Diva Kelly Kelly(R) ("Devil" Halloween-themed attire), will be free of charge with the videogame through a back of manual code for first-time purchasers.

More updates via a main site at http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/action/wwesmackdownvsraw2011/index.html?tag=result%3Btitle%3B0

For online news at http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/action/wwesmackdownvsraw2011/news.html?sid=6274003&om_act=convert&om_clk=newsfeatures&tag=newsfeatures%3Btitle%3B1

-If you buy a used copy of the game you got to pay an additional $10 for online play's onetime code to activate it, something THQ has done for games in the past to prevent used games sales and force more new sales.

-Also only new copies get the free DLC of Chris Masters and Halloween costumes for Kelly Kelly and Rey.

Actually to clarify some things some might be thinking:

1. YES some of the main roster is missing. I labelled for now who is missing from the list again, taking the names of the DLC people placed on the rosters to help.

2. Odd eh that Bulldog and Luger were the 2 legends so far...and neither are in the WWE HOF yet? Read into that as you will...

3. The DLC packs are $10 each with 4 to come. This price is on top of the game itself, yeah sucks.

4. Count the slots so far taken. 34 on RAW plus 24 on Smackdown and 2 Legends. There are 2 packs to go (pack one again was Halloween outfits for Rey and Kelly Kelly along with Chris Masters as playable) so 2 more to add more. There is talk of hidden characters too. When the game advertised it said a roster of over 70 characters so doing the math we should see 10+ more from people missing from the main roster, more legends and maybe more surprises. Remember too the talent want to see they made the game as they get paid nice royalties for their likeness in the games as per their contracts. Consider it like a Mania bonus.

RAW (34)
Bret Hart (Best Buy DLC exclusive)
Brie Bella
Chris Jericho
David Hart Smith
David Otunga (RAW-NXT finalist)

Evan Bourne
Eve Torres
Ezekiel Jackson
Gail Kim

Yes aside announcing the release of RAW vs. Smackdown 2011 there will be the more NFL Blitz/NBA Jam looking game made by some of its creators called WWE All Stars:

http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/sports/wweallstars/index.html?tag=result%3Btitle%3B1

It's more arcadey if you ever played games like Royal Rumble. Check the gameplay and yes you get both current talent and superstars of the past like the Rock. On top of being overly jacked (odd considering the stigma of wrestling) they do over the top moves seen in games like Def Jam Vendetta, so you'll see the Rock or Cena do flips in the air while jumping 30 feet up before doing their moves then coming down with quake ripples. IF you like over the top gaming this might be an alternative to the more sim style of the Raw vs. SD series.
