Any fellow Promotion Wars freaks in here? I've got the latest version, and of course I'm doing my best to take the WWA to the top of the wrestling world. With a little dabbling and quite a few instances of stealing-- er, “borrowing” from the other feds, I've gotten WWA's Monday Show up to consistent 1.1 ratings.
“You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth.”
Is there a promtion simulator for Mac? I remember CRZ being a Mac freak like me. Then again, I also remember him saying fantasy booking was the dumbest thing ever created, so I'm not getting my hopes up here.
Farooq is the man so hit your knees and start praying!
I suppose I'll be the self designated explainer guy today...
1. Is Promotion Wars like TNM?
Yes and no. TNM simulated the matches themselves, Promotion Wars simulates running a Promotion. Really the object of the game is to use one of two (which change depending on the version or you can change yourself using an editor) promotions, and try to beat out your competition. Usually, since the WWF is almost always on top, this means you pick the "other" promotion and try to build from the ground up. There are really three types of wrestling sim games on the Net, Match (TNM and Zeus), Promoter (Promotion Wars and it's DOS counterpart Extreme Warfare) and Career (text based wrestling, and funner than it sounds: ESWF) Each has their good and bad points, and each has a fiercely loyal fanbase.
2. Promotion Simulators for Mac?
Not any good ones that I know of, since most of the people who program these things use IBM clones.
Well, I just partially did. I'll close by saying that most of these things are free (TNM stands out as the only one that charges) and really pretty fun. You'd probably be pretty able to find these on their own, but if you can't here's some linkage:
I'd honestly wait until Marchish when Adam Ryland's finished the Windows Based version.
Promotion Wars (Windows)
I honestly don't know WHERE you can get this at the moment, because the main site is down (but the message board is still up). Promotion Wars 2 is said to be forth coming, but no one's holding their breath.
Every time I seen young Pete Stein, he brings me beer from Pioneer market down the block from him in Manhatten. Everytime I visit him, we go there and I marvel at the bizarre beer they have on sale. It's basically a Big Lots Of Booze.
