Eidos and backyard wrestling
---

The company announces plans to publish games based on backyard wrestling.

Eidos has announced that it has signed a deal with Backyard Wrestling Inc. to publish a series of games based on the Backyard Wrestling video series.

"Eidos is thrilled to have this opportunity to bring the fierce action of the Backyard Wrestling video series to life on today's gaming consoles," said Kevin Gill, senior product manager at Eidos Interactive. "Eidos continues to diversify its already strong roster of brands with this exciting new property, and we will continue to push the envelope of today's games with such acquisitions."

Release dates and platforms have yet to be announced.

---

Finally, I can run my dream match: Stone Cold Robert Benoit vs. Rob Van Daniel, for the "From My Garage to That Guy Who Lives On the Corner's Front Lawn" championship.

And meanwhile, Anachronox sits in Eidos' hands, sequelless.

There is no god.

I heard about this on the piece of crap that is the GAMEFAQS, Smackdown!:SYM message board.


A game full of blown spots and stupid kids blading themselves.

you know what? now 11 year olds across the country will take to the backyards and throw them selves off of roofs, so they can be in the next game...

Hey, the Darwin awards always need some fresh candidates. If you haven't developed the basic survival skills needed to not look at your garage and think "gee, i want to jump off of that." then I can only hope you damage your nuts enough in the fall to sterilize yourself for the rest of your life and thus avoid sending some mentally defective spawn into the world.

You know what's the craziest thing about this?

Someone actually thought this was a good idea. There was a pitch meeting behind it, people programmed it, there were test versions...

And they will sell copies of this. I am honestly concerned for humanity right now. Granted, I do appreciate spf's sentiment about garage-jumping, but I'm kind of curious as to how someone can damage their nuts from doing that, short of doing a splitz on hitting the ground (or a faceplant, I suppose). I give 3 months from now until the first wrongful death lawsuit is filed against Eidos because somebody's son decided it would be a great idea to do a 30-foot frogsplash onto concrete.

Cow, I guess I'm hoping for them to land with their lower body taking the brunt of the blow, and just generally break everything from pelvis to kneecap. Or since they're backyard wrestlers hopefully they'll take a light tube to the nuts that can sever something useful ;)

Well y'know something brothers...

It's like Mick Foley said in his book. If Dad realizes, while reading the newspaper, that it's a little bit dark in the room and all of a sudden Junior comes into the room with glass embedded in his skull, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out it's time for a talk.

But instead we have moms saying anybody can do that crap, so their sons are like, “Cool, I can be the next Mick Foley!” And then they take 50-foot dives off of concrete for the entertainment of half a dozen people, and end up as a quadreplegic, having to suck their meals through a straw. And the parents sue WWE for it.

Parents in America today, for the most part, SUCK. They don't seem to care what their kids are doing, as long as they're kept quiet and occupied so the parents can do the laundry, wash the dishes, and take out the trash.

Well, if I can create myself and give myself all submission holds, I'll play it. Beating those high-risk losers by working their legs could be fun...

I'm curious as to exactly how this will be implemented.

It HAS to be based on "create yourself/your fed" mechanics. I've never watched the Best of Backyard tapes endlessly hawked during late-night shows -- do they actually _name_ anyone other than the breast-baring bimbette? I can't imagine people paying cash for a game to assume the role of Jimmy from Des Moines.

So you end up with a game where you can create yourself and your buddies and beat the hell out of each other with light bulb tubes and sledgehammers. Well... um... I can already do that in Fire Pro D.

I'm astonished that it's someone other than Acclaim putting this zero out.

Maybe they can do like in that commercial where you try to do a piledriver on the table and the damn thing doesn't even break!

Oh! OH! Or how's about you set up a ladder on the roof, climb the ladder, douse yourself in gasoline, set yourself on fire, and perform a Swanton off the ladder, 40-50 feet onto your prone opponent on the ring?! OMG that would ROCK!

But seriously, how much would Backyard Wrestling Inc. make off this shit that's trying to pass itself off as a video game?

In my opinion I think there wouldn't be so many "Hardcore" backyard wrestlers today if only they hadn't managed to get their grubby little paws on old Cactus Jack and Terry Funk videos.

If there was any true justice in the world the Media would jump on this and crucify Eidos. In fact the WWE should lead the charge against this.

But alas, this will never happen. This game will come out, and the WWE will be raked over the coals as if they had anything to do with this.

The whole idea of this is just plain sick! But we can hope at the least that Eidos can put together a good game engine for this.

Oh and who wants to bet Lara Croft shows up in this game somewhere hmmm...

Wow no matter how i think about it the only thing that comes to mind is that this is gonna suck a hard one and probably Give Eidos the PR beating of its life.

One can only hope that Eidos Interactive will be ripped a new asshole for this.

And I'll be pissed if ignorant people start pointing the finger at WWE.

You know anything having to do with wrestling has something to do with WW(F)E.Even though the WW(F)E has spoke out against this backyard wrestling crap,it will always have something to do with it because the media is so biased against WW(F)E and wrestling.

And they view what a trained professional and some dumb 12-year do as the same thing,garbage.A lot of people like to bash wrestling and really don't care to learn else anything about it.


But I bet if they go to a wrestling school and take 1,just 1,bodyslam they will change their tunes quickly.
