Some pretty funny stuff concerning an old NES "classic" ...

That looks like Diamond Dallas Page in that picture, doesn't it?

    If I could find all my old NES games, I probably still have it. And screw the bullshit, IT RULES. Stupid snotty gamers with their No Mercy and Fire Pro D, I'll take WCW and Pro Wrestling anyday dammit!

    That was a funny review, but I think I still prefer Scotsman's wrestling video game reviews better.

    Review WCW THUNDER (sorry, inside joke).

    The call is from heroism; will you accept the charges?

    Thanks to the exciting non-finish to RR 2K3, I have nothing to write about Spf here. Please go about your business as usual. Thank you.

    Damn, even in the video games, an abdominal stretch was an important part of the WCW experience. Now if they could only have had the attacker grabbing the ropes, and the victim screaming as if being tortured to death, the whole thing would've been just like WCW.

    (This is a WCW mark speaking, by the way. But that always did bug me.)

    My favorite part the WCW Wrestling game was the weapon available outside the ring - namely a wrench that magically flew out of your hand the moment you stuck your opponent with it. (The finishing moves were pretty cool too...)

    I still enjoy playing the Vs. Pro wrestling game every now and then. That game was a blast...

    The sure fire way to totally kick ass in WCW Wrestling was if you had an NES Max controller (the baby brother of the Advantage) and used the turbo button to lay in kicks to gain the advantage. I used that strategy and ended WHOOPIN' the WCW Master!

    I loved that game more than most my brother and I had for NES, and playing against another person was always a chaotic and fun experience! My friends would get PISSED when I'd back drop their wrestler on his head with Road Warrior Hawk! Ah, memories!
    It always bothered me how ALL of the wrestlers had those red, yellow, or blue leggings and black tights, though. And Luger without cuts OR mass?! WTF?!?!

    And for some reason, I always jammed out to that game's music! Does that make me weird or lame?

    I'm more concerned about these "hentai games" that they review. From their review of one called Critical Point, which apparently features a rape: "It goes without saying that she is also a virgin, since no Hentai rape sequence would be complete without a description of hymen-tearing that would make Hitler cry". It really makes me wonder about these Japanese.

    WCW Wrestling was a lot better than the crap that LJN/Acclaim used to turn out to us. I remember that the shining example of this was the original Wrestlemania game that had bouncing powerups to collect. I shudder when I remember that game.

    I bought this today and I must say it is a unique game. I've never played Raw 1 so I can't compare the two. Here I will give you the run down of what I thought. Pros: -Edit your own theme music. (Tommy's got the "Man in the Box" back, yeah!)
