I'm more pumped for WWE '12 than I have been for any wrestling game in quite some time. I'm especially looking forward to recreating WCW in Universe Mode: I'll have Nitro replace RAW, and replace two of the regular WWE PPVs with Clash of the Champions and Starrcade.

I'll have five champions on each brand (four ranked and one unranked), and the initial champions will be:

WCW

World Heavyweight Champion: Booker T
U.S. Heavyweight Champion: Dolph Ziggler
Divas Champion: Natalya
World Tag Team Champions: The Miz & R-Truth
Cruiserweight Champion: Chavo Guerrero

WWE

WWE Champion: John Cena
(Classic) Intercontinental Champion: Cody Rhodes
Women's Champion: Kelly Kelly
WWE Tag Team Champions: William Regal & Tyson Kidd
Light Heavyweight Champion: Sin Cara

My primary player-characters will be WCW's Zack Ryder and WWE's Drew McIntyre, and I'll also be playing as The Miz and Tyson Kidd.

- Skyrim.
- Zelda.
- Halo 1.
- SWTOR.

I have negative time to play WWE '12. I'll probably get it next year.

I've had it reserved for a while now, but I'm seemingly much less excited than ekedolphin.

I did see some of the upcoming DLC guys (listed on Wikipedia and I didn't check for a better source, so who knows if they're legit - I hadn't seen them confirmed here before) and it will be nice to get

Getting it. I'm curious how extensive will the Create-An-Arena feature be? If so, I predict wasting away many hours at this and CAW.

Just reserved WWE 12 last night when I went to pick up my reserved copy of Saints Row 3.

I have the same issue as El Nastio. There are just too many games out that I want/have, so WWE 12 will have to go on the back burner until December at the earliest. But I am interested in the game, so it might be a rental for me.

I want to get it. I do! But I won't lie; May next year. Unless Guild Wars II comes out, then I'll probably never play WWE 12 :(

I'll ask for it for Christmas, delaying my decades-long ambition to play as pre-made Arn Anderson and Vader in a WWE game. (I skipped the game that allowed Vader as a download.)

I've barely scratched the surface on the Batman game and had to stop my season in NHL 12 to start playing that.

I'm tempted by the WWE game, but might be better off just renting it every so often.

I've pretty much finished Batman (just nailed the Riddler, all I have left is the advance AR training and like 8-9 riddler trophies) and Skylanders, so I need something to do between Overlord: Raising Hell and Infamous 2.

I just picked up Bulletstorm - as soon as I beat that, I think I'll pick up WWE 12. I'm quite impressed with what I've read so far.

Then again, I fell in love with Saints Row 2, and SR3 looks incredible, too.

Decisions, decisions...

I might ask for this for Christmas and have it as a little diversion.

What's everyone's thoughts on it so far?

For the first time since Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, I bought a strategy guide. Partially because the game doesn't come with a manual, partially because the first match I played was CM Punk v. Ted DiBiase and I lost. Repeatedly. Couldn't reverse a damn thing, got pinned because I thought the "don't get pinned" minigame was button mashing and not "hold down X", it was embarassing. I'm not touching either story mode until I can win consistently.

It helps if you think of it as the "No Mercy" system. It took me about two hours before I finally figured out what the hell I was doing, but once I did, I realized the engine is deceptively simple. Do a starting grapple state by pressing A (on the 360); turn it into one of four stronger grapple states with a direction + A; hit your move with Direction + A.

The Location-Based strike system, I hardly ever use.

But in the brawls, you don't use the grapple system; it's more like street-fighting. It took me about seven tries to accomplish the first objective in RTWM.

I just finished chapter 21 in the Hero Story; it took me two long nights of gaming to reach that point. Just unlocked

the Nitro arena,
which was one of my main goals anyway, since I needed to do that before starting the Universe mode the way I wanted it.

Anyway... this is the best wrestling game, quite possibly, since No Mercy. No kidding. Possibly even better.

I have been playing it for the last two days. I am not that impressed. The controls are a bit sloppy and countering can be a pain. When the wrestlers you fight, they go on a roll. I have been just playing story mode, so take that for what is worth. I will say I miss you choosing the characters to take in story mode. The only thing, I will say about story mode is that if you didn't hate Cena or HHH before, you will after this.

I agree with lotjx. I went in with high expectations and came away unimpressed for the same reasons he stated. Heath Slater should not be able to counter that well, and that often, then hit me with three finishers. I know you can adjust the frequency and success of AI counters, but there's no fun in that. Thumbs in the middle, leaning down.

I've spent most of the night making my Ribera Steak House arena and turning RAW and Smackdown into Mid-South and Memphis in the WWE Universe mode.
