I think he means this Click Here (400softwarestudios.com)

Basically, Total Extreme Warfare comes out in two days.

Quick question that I can't find the answer to on the basic TEW pages (or, what 5 minutes of quick browsing couldn't find)...I remember in the early stages of the game (right after 4.0 was released) I heard that Adam couldn't use the real names of promotions and wrestlers due to copyright now that he's making profit on the TEW. Anyone know if this is still the case?

Yes, the entire database of the game is filled with made-up wrestlers. However, RaveX will be releasing updates featuring the real wrestlers sometime a week or two later. The first updates will just have the biggest American feds and some from Canada and Japan, but in the weeks after that updates featuring every significant promotion in the world will be released.

WWE won't be in the first RaveX update either, which kind of defeats the purpose (for me anyway).

WHOOOOOO-HOOOOOOO!

If I enjoy TEW half as much as I've enjoyed EWR (particularly 4.2), then it's definitely gonna be worth the money.

Are you sure? I would think if any promotion would be in the update, WWE would. Have they officially come out and announced this?

Yes. They said they did five guys (Benoit, Angle, Guerrero, Misterio and Undertaker) and then got bored with the WWE and decided to do Japan and the Indies first. WWE won't be included until RaveX TEW #2, which should be out next week.

EDIT: Apparently they're now planning on getting the pack together for 24 hrs AFTER the release so that they can include WWE.

On the one hand, they're doing this for free, so if they get bored and want to do something else, that's their perogative. On the other hand, how many people are going to be PAYING now JUST to control the WWE? Heck, even if I had money to get this game (and wasn't currently obsessed with Madden as my owner sim du jour), I'd want the WWE roster in there since I'd play in North America and be looking to compete with them. To that extent, that makes this *addition* a vital part of the overall game package, and Ryland should make sure RaveX and whomever are on the ball on this. I wouldn't be surprised if TEW sales are sluggish until the first update comes out.

(What do you mean they are "getting the pack together for 24 hrs AFTER the release"? Are they now trying to have this ready the day after the game comes out? Why can't they release simultaneously?)

The longer before anyone writes a review/satire of the game, the better for me. I probably won't care about this until I see other people playing it, and then the drooling will commence.

Phil Parent, who has been representing the RaveX effort on the TEW message board stated that they will have the full North American pack (with WWE, TNA, ROH, etc) put together for release Thursday. I assume that the other things that they've done (New Japan, AAA, etc) will be out tomorrow with the game.

I dunno. On one hand, RaveX can do whatever they want. I'm not holding a gun to their head, and I could make my own WWE roster if I wanted (and I do), and it would cost me most of two days doing it. On the other, if you're putting out a service to the community, making a big deal about doing it, proclaiming it as the way the fans can play a "realistic TEW" and then don't include the world's largest and most well known promotion...well...come on.

As for my review...I'm still planning it for next week (Monday or Wednesdayish), but you don't have to click on it until you feel ready for it .

I downloaded the trial and realized why I won't buy the whole thing. There is too much going on for me to enjoy it. That's not an indictment of the game, it's just that it's very difficult to get into it, play for a bit, and get out of it. I just don't have the time...



We stopped pretending we would ratify Kyoto. We only spent $15 billion on AIDS in Africa. We did not take dictation from Paris. If we had done these things, it would minimize the world’s anger.

Is the world angry at Russia, which spends nothing on AIDS and rebuffed Kyoto? Is the world angry at China, which got a pass on Kyoto and spends nothing on AIDS for other countries?

Is the world angry at North Korea for killings its people? Angry at Iran for smothering that vibrant nation with corrupt and thuggish mullocracy? Angry at Syria for occupying Lebanon? Angry at Saudi Arabia for its denial of women’s rights? Angry at Russia for corrupt elections? Is the world angry at China for threatening Taiwan, or angry at France for joining the Chinese in joint military exercises that threatened the island on the eve of an election? Is the world angry at Zimbabwe for stealing land and starving people? Is the world angry at Pakistan for selling nuclear secrets? Is the world angry at Libya for having an NBC program?

Is the world angry at the thugs of Fallujah?

Is the world angry at anyone besides America and Israel?

Maybe it was because of the lack of real wrestlers. That seems to be a common complaint in the EWR and 400studios forums, and it is one that I found myself identifying with as well. The general consensus is that after playing with RaveX's beta version of the data, almost everyone liked it ten times more and it was a lot easier for them to get into. Personally, the same goes for me, and I'll be buying it once the RaveX data comes out. So perhaps once the real wrestlers are in you'll find it easier to get into...

It's very much a cop-out. Oliver Copp has been making profits off TNM7 for years, using WWE guys, and they've never raised an eyebrow. He might not be able to have PICTURES that are licensed, but the names they wouldn't raise a stink about.

Even if he couldn't, he could've at least used the same stats and just renamed them, like WCW vs. the World for N64. Then all you'd have to do is rename them. But from what I've heard, he didn't do that either.

I won't be buying it.

I ended up buying it from half.com, I went to several of our local rental places. Of the few that did have it...it has pretty high rental activity so they weren't willing to part with it. Worth a shot though. Thanks again guys!
