Does anyone know the release date of Smackdown HCTP? ... I've heard about 50 bajillion dates; the majority of which tend to linger along the 10/24-11/01 range.

Pre-orders: The night of October 27th
Regular Release: October 28th
UK: November 7th

Incidentally the game looks awesome from what I've seen of the 98% build. You could probably find a list 'o features from the usual suspects, but just at its most basic it looks to be miles ahead of SYM in terms of gameplay and graphics.



Wisconsin Badgers: 6-1 (What an unbelievable game. Could we win the Big Ten this year? Well...probably not, but let's win a bowl game at least.)


Minnesota Vikings: 5-0 (Bye week means I don't have to care as much about football on Sunday! I hope Culpepper rests up.)

I know they've got a bunch of non-wrestlers in the game, but I can't find a confirmed complete list...does anyone know if Theodore Long made the cut?

I don't think he is, but Rodney Mack is ...

I'm 95% sure that the APA aren't even on the playable roster ...

I remember one earlier list saying that Christian wasn't on it. Please tell me that list was just a mistake.

This comes out the same day as Monster Rancher 4? Hmmm....I'm torn.

There's a rumor floating around that they and La Resistance will be "buyable" from the Shopzone section, but take that with several thousand grains of salt.

Also it's pretty much confirmed that there won't be any commentary, and I'm not even sure that ring announcing made the final cut (but I'm not positive on that one).

As for non-wrestlers, no, Teddy isn't in. As far as I know the confirmed list of non-wrestlers is as follows:

Jonathan Coachman (Involved in Cutscenes during Season Mode)
J.R. (Involved in some angles in Season Mode, maybe a match)
Jerry Lawler (Ditto)
Vince McMahon (Playable in Exibition, not in season)
Stephanie McMahon (Ditto)
Eric Bischoff (Ditto)
Earl Hebner (Referee RAW and PPV)
Mike Chioda (Referee Smackdown)

Note:

Ric Flair and Steve Austin are officially listed as wrestlers, so I'm assuming you can play as them in Season mode. All of the Divas (except Stephanie) are available for the "Diva's Season" so I'm not counting them in this list.

Note: Upon looking, Vince and the GMs are listed as "active", which would mean that you could play them in season, but I'm pretty sure this is an error.

The current BWF Women's Champion says:


Wait wait wait a second...there's no Molly Holly? *looks at the list again* There's...no...Molly...Holly?! THERE'S NO MOLLY HOLLY?! GODDAMMIT! Oh well...I guess I should be glad that all of the original members of the Renegade Faction won't be screwed up since Christian is in the game...

And a Diva's season? I wonder if you can enter your own created females wrestlers. If that's the case, I don't know whether I should be happy for my character or very afraid for what she'll have to do...

Molly was never added, I think she was left out initially because the intial roster creation was while she was helping out in OVW and they assumed that she wasn't coming back any time soon, and then they never got around to adding her. I'd bank on a pre-made model in the CAW though (or else, you could just make a CAW , actually the only one I know that Yukes said they were making as a sample CAW was Tommy Dreamer).

And as far as I know, you can add CAWs to the Diva's season, but I'd be prepared for a bunch of Bra and Panty matches.

Though I'll agree that the Legends are a "neat" idea ... Personally, I'd rather have a larger roster of current WWE superstars to choose from ... but I guess that what the CAW mode is for ...

Tommy Dreamer gets the shaft once again. Although it's nice to see Stevie back.

I had a hell of a time with CAWs in the last game too. I could never seem to get the shoulders right with the rest of the body. Plus they had no teeth and looked pretty gay.

Those are exact same problems that I encounted ... but you'll have to admit, as an over whole, the CAW mode kicked ass ... 1000s of choices ... hopefully HCTP will out do SYM.

I just put my preorder in. Can't wait!
I've read that the "Legends" wont have their own entrances but rather will come to the ring in the classic wrestlemania "mini Rings". Now thats cool and all for slaughter and Piper but if old school Taker doesnt get hi symphony of darkness entrance (IMO the greatest entrance of all time.) im gonna be PISSED!!

I saw a preview of this game on X Play this week. The way they explained it made it sound like each character has their own storyline in the season mode. If this is the case then that's going to made it extra good because of the replay value.

Actually, from what I understand there are a few legends that have their "old school" entrances in, and Undertaker is one of them. It's just a matter of playing around with his moveset, but if you've played Shut Your Mouth, you should be accustomed to that. I think the rings thing was just something that they put in to seperate the guys from everybody else. Though, I'm having a hard time saying that besides maybe Piper, Dibiase and maybe L.O.D. that I'd think about putting any of these guys in season mode. Of course "Everybody's Got a Price" makes a kickass theme song for my wayword CAWs.

As for the teeth in CAW, it never bothered me until someone on a message board pointed it out to me, and even then it was only at the level of "minor annoyance". But anyway, everything I've heard said teeth are in this year.

While on the subject of CAW excalibur would it be too much to ask for a Stone Man Still Austinberg moveset? The Raw Satire Universe will come alive in "Here comes the pain". Now if only i could figure out how to make that damned Lance Storm Squared :)

Interesting...I'll give it a shot when I'm doing my CAWs. As for Lance Storm Squared, hey, just make a carbon copy of Lance and put them in a Stable. You can even make a third one for Old School Satire Action .



Wisconsin Badgers: 6-2 (What a sever letdown. The fact that despite getting outclassed the whole game, we stayed in it gives me a glimmer of hope for the rest of the season.)

The only way is to use a Gameshark code, sorry. The function doesn't exist within the game proper, presumably because they don't want you making "Naked Lady" CAWs.
