RingSideGames.com: Hello, firstly I want to thank you for agreeing to give this interview.

THQ Spokesperson: No problem

RSG: Could you tell everyone a secret that we don't know yet?

THQ: Well, we will be including all the WWE Arenas from Vengeance 2003 right through to Bad Blood 2004

RSG: Are there any current Wrestlers that won't be in the Game?

THQ: Well anyone who is still competing on WWE TV in August will make the cut, and will be included in the game.

RSG: Even if someone new comes in?

THQ: Yes

RSG: That’s cool. Will each superstar have unique storylines in Season mode?

THQ: The storylines will be as unique as possible, however repetition is going to be unavoidable I’m afraid.

RSG: Fair enough. Will any legends be on the game and will Paul Bearer and Jeff Hardy be on the game?

THQ: There will be legends in the game this year. Paul Bearer isn’t in at the present time and Jeff Hardy will definitely not be in the game.

RSG: Yeh, he’s with TNA now I believe. Anyway, my next question is Will the Buried Alive, Casket, Ambulance or Inferno matches be on the game?

THQ: Well none of them have been included in what I’ve seen of the game, but hey you never know! As far as I know the new match this year is the Parking Lot Brawl.

RSG: Is that the only new match?

THQ: That’s the only one I know of.

RSG: OK, will you be able to use weapons more freely and in more ways?

THQ: Oh yes, we are working hard on this area this year. We are including new weapons such as when you’re defending a title, you can use the belt as a weapon!

RSG: Well, that is definitely realistic! Will you be able to rip music from the PS2 Hard Drive for entrances?

THQ: Nope.

RSG: Fair enough, Will there be a GM mode?

THQ: No there will not be. There will be the normal season mode however, and the authority figures will play a bigger part in the game.

RSG: Will Kane have his finger eleven theme?

THQ: Yes, he will

RSG: What legends will be in the game?

THQ: I cannot really tell you at the present time; however Andre the Giant looks hopeful!

RSG: Wow, that’s great news! We can have Andre vs. Big Show!

THQ: (Laughs)

RSG: Which divas will appear in the game?

THQ: All the current WWE ones up until August!

RSG: Will bra and panties be in this year’s game?

THQ: Of course!

RSG: Right that’s sold me the game!! (Laughs)

THQ: (Laughs)

RSG: Is Hulk Hogan in the game as a legend?

THQ: No he is not.

RSG: Are the original Entrance better than HCTP. I mean like do we still have those Micheal Jackson wannabes and the Spiderman entrance, or we have something that a normal wrestler would do?

THQ: I cannot really comment as Yukes are handling the CAW part of the game.

RSG: Alright, Do the WWE Divas Bleed?

THQ: No they won’t, only the male wrestlers will bleed.

RSG: Will the game feature more in depth story lines?

THQ: Yes, we are working closely with WWE writers to make it the best season mode on a WWE game yet!

RSG: That’s good news, HCTP got dreadfully repetitive! If the game is online what can we expect from the online mode?

THQ: It will be similar to the Fifa series, in which you can have matches against other players etc.

RSG: Looks like RingsideGames.com will be having an online tournament then! Will Mordecai be in the game?

THQ: Well, he is but we may be taking him out seeing as he is no longer on WWE TV at the moment.

RSG: Yeh, he is back in OVW at the moment.

THQ: Yup.

RSG: Will there be a good number of legends in the game?

THQ: We’re hoping to have around 12 in the final game.

RSG: Will King and JR be in this game and provide commentary?

THQ: They are in the game, but we probably will not have commentary again this year. It simply takes up too much space on the game.

RSG: Will Brock Lesnar's, Goldberg's, Austin's Moves, music, entrance and movies be in the game?

THQ: Only their moves.

RSG: Damn, will you be putting in the undertaker’s new entrance and his music and attire?

THQ: Yes we will be. He will be exactly as he is now.

RSG: (Laughs) Even with the cowboy hat?

THQ: (Laughs) Definitely with the cowboy hat!

RSG: How many pixels will this year’s game use for the Wrestlers?

THQ: Around 25% more than we used last year!

RSG: Amazing, I thought the graphics were great on HCTP! Like in DOR are you guys copyrighting music to play in the background of the game?

THQ: Yes we are, we want to have our own music this year!

RSG: Like in GTA: San Andreas, will the Season Mode be more realistic...Like they will have to Eat and work out if they don't want to lose energy or power?

THQ: No we won’t have that feature in the game. Sorry!

RSG: No probs man! Will the Elimination chamber be in the game this year?

THQ: Yes, all the matches from last year will. Anyway, can we make that the last question?

RSG: Sure thing dude, thanks for your time!

THQ: Alright, hope to speak to you again soon, bye!

Eh, I'm underwhelmed so far, but I'm taking a wait-and-see approach. You're right, there's gotta be more for me to warrant putting $50 down on it.

Hey, all I really want is a good storyline mode, and that article says it will be less repetitive, so that's good enough for me right there. Although the ability to have a divas season mode (for my female CAW) would be nice.

An updated roster, better season mode (at least it sounds better from the interview), and better graphics sounds good to me. The only let-down for me is not being able to rip your own entrance theme, but that's pretty minor.

The only things I really wanted out of HCTP were a less repetitive season mode and submission finishers that don't suck, and it sounds like they're planning to deliver on at least one of those. So good on them, as far as I'm concerned.

Have you guys seen the new PSM magazine article? I know this interview sounds like crap, but check out all the new info there. I wish I could find a link, because the mag is scanned somewhere online, but if you can't find it on the web, go pick up a copy. It appears that create-a-belt and create-a-ppv is in, which is more than enough to make me happy about this year's version. And also...YOU CAN NOW BREAK UP SUBMISSIONS! The article is full of good little tidbits like this. I'm cautiously optimistic now.

SD! vs. RAW looks good, and the graphics appear to be pretty insane. One problem to me would be lack of Casket/Buried Alive matches. Another would be that, in HCTP, on SD difficulty, it was IMPOSSIBLE to make someone tap out. It would be nice for them to change that.

Good point, that was one of my main problem with HCTP. I never wanted to play as Benoit, Jericho and whoever else had had submission finishers in the game because it was impossible to actually win with them. Casket and Buried Alive matches aren't so much of a concern to me, I'd rather they work on incorporating each type of match in a more interesting and less "pick a random gimmick match" way this time around.

I really really hope they redo the whole stat/finisher system as it made the game extremely frustrating at times and made HCTP less fun than it could have been. It'd also be nice if they made Taker a little less cheap with the whole punch combos thing.

It is cool that there's a possibility that London will be in the game. And there's no reason why Jamie Noble shouldn't be in this game. And PALUMBO!

I have to shamefully admit I played HCTP a little too much. On Smackdown level I made everyone tap out. Oh I can not wait to mix it up online.

I owned everybody's ass with Matt Hardy. Making Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Undertaker and them guys tap out with Matt's on-the-mat-rear-headlock thingy was awesome.

It was particularly fun very early on, when Matt had low stats and I had to blatantly cheat in order to beat the contenders. Ducking out of the ring and slingshotting 'em against the ropes, for example. And in situations in which I had the option to use a chair without being DQed, I availed myself of that option.

“Mygawd King, Matt Hardy's bringing the violence!”

I'm just like a tornado-- I can dry up a sea.

Just curious as to what technique you used to make them tap. I could never hit the buttons fast enough.

P.S. That sig is hysterical.
