You can see Ted DiBiase's excellent entrance here: Click Here (ps2.ign.com).

JYD, three versions of Hogan, Austin, British Bulldog, and Jimmy Hart are in the game too.

Do there really need to be 3 different Hogans? Why not just make each a seperate "costume" rather than take up three seperate slots. I'd rather see two other legends in there like Jake Roberts and Ricky Steamboat

It seems like they actually put quite a bit of thought into differentiating the three Hogans though. They've all got different bodies (80s Hogan seems built bigger than actually possible though), different entrances, and will hopefully have different moves. Yes, I know it's Hogan, but a lot of people grew up with the Prayers, the Vitamins and the Hulkster.

OK I'm pissed. Why doesn't 'Hollywood Hogan' have the REAL nWo music? They couldn't even give him the "Voodoo Chile"? Both those songs were in previous WWE games. Maybe the "Voodoo Chile" rights ran out? OK, that's fine but nWo music is public domain and from a freakin' porn movie called 'Anal Intruder' and no reason why they couldn't use it.

I will never play that version of Hogan. If it's not one thing it's another getting presention perfect with WWE games.



I'm am LanceJr hear me...I mean see me post

That map of where I am thingy is a few miles off. No matter what I do it's wrong get back to work to fix it.

There are entire libraries of songs that companies can licence to use as they see fit. WWE often uses these songs. Other companies do too, which is how Spanky's music gets used in Spike TV bumpers and Lance Storm's music gets used in news reports. A porn company could also use these same songs. That doesn't mean they're in the public domain, and that doesn't make them free.

And Holy BaJesus, they just announced the GM mode at IGN earlier today....draft your roster, compete for ratings against the other show, manage cards, feuds, wrestler morale, finances, wrestler fatigue (I'm assuming you can overbook someone into exhaustion)....it's looking pretty wild. THQ is gonna have to try hard to screw this one up, let's hope they're not up to it this year.

The problem with that is that it's basically a public beta of sorts. Kind of like Online mode was last year. "Here's a new feature, tell us what you'd like in next year's!" So don't go in expecting them to reinvent the wheel with GM Mode. At least not this year.

I wonder if the GM mode will be in the PSP version as well.

The nWo theme is actually a song called "Rockhouse" ...

When they released the initial list of legends, Jake Roberts was in there as well, only to be replaced by "PSP Legend" ...

I thought for sure we'd get Ricky Steamboat this year ...

I usually stay away from the legends or buying them. I only unlocked Brett Hart last year because I wanted to make some dream matches..other than that *shrug* I prefer wrestling with the current guys and create my own style fed.

I am looking forward to some of the new stuff, and one of them being FULL & complete entrances. Yes, it might get boring after the first match but just knowing that Triple H's entrance does actually take two minutes or so is just awesome.

Hope the CAW is good and thorough, and that a Mr. Kennedy is easy to make.

Every time IGN releases something about the game-- be it a new entrance, or information about a new mode-- I get more and more excited. I'm glad I pre-ordered the game a few months ago, and I can't wait to buy it. You probably won't hear from me for a few months afterwards.

IGN loves the game, calls it the best since No Mercy: Click Here (ps2.ign.com)

I'm looking forward to trying the new stamina meter and GM mode. I miss the previous options of viewing a week's show and jumping in to play any or all matches. That sounds possible again in this version.

I'm also surprised that, so far, there's no word of any game options or details omitted right before deadline. That always happened in the previous games.

This are the lone game franchisr that I buy with no trial rental. I'll have my copy next week when the game is released.

Anyone else excited as much as I am for the general manager mode? i can not wait to be able to draft my roster and finally push people the way they are supposed to be pushed. who, in the game, is everyone going to push? i think i am going to push muhammad hussan just because he isn't in the wwe anymore. what about everyone else?

I'm playing as Christian in season mode first, and I'm also gonna be pushing him in general manager mode. I'll be playing as SmackDown, and the entire cruiserweight division is gonna get pushed, for that matter. I haven't fully decided on my cruiserweight strategy yet, but they will be plentiful.

I'll also naturally push Benoit, and try and get Jericho either through a trade or by the random draft, and push him. Shelton, as well.

I just hope the trading isn't easy. like they did for raw and smackdown when triple h was drafted by smackdown and traded back to raw for booker t and the dudleyz. i hope if u want a guy like the undertaker that u cant just trade spike dudley for him. sure that would make ur show better than anyone's, but wouldn't be any competition.

Behold the "Wise" Words of Renegade Raine, the Bishounen Hunter:


Does anyone know if you can actually play as a female in season mode this time?

But I'm most excited for the GM mode. I can finally build a decent women's division. Jericho, Paul London, and Christian will be the gods of my show, while Triple H and John Cena will be the jobbers. I'll LAUGH if I can manage to beat the other show in ratings because of it.

No, they didn't include a female season mode for the same reason they say they haven't since the PS1 Smackdowns, because there aren't enough girls where they could actually do storylines where they wouldn't start repeating themselves. So they figure they shouldn't have to bother programming one.

I haven't bought a WWE game on the day of release since "Shut Your Mouth", but I think I'm going to go in for this one. Reviews are very positive so far and with online mode and GM mode, sounds fun.

In GM Mode, I think I'll start the "Hulk Hogan Wrestling Federation" and book Hulk Hogan vs Hulk Hogan for the main event of WrestleMania. I'd love to see the voice acting pull through and hear them cut a promo on each other.
