    That luchadore mask is awesome, in my opinion. Is the wrestler as good as the mask?

    Didn't TNA sign one of the jersey shore ladies again? I don't think they are going to change their knockouts division.

    Also way to job your world champ to a returning wrestler!

    Would someone kindly explain what EWR is? I'm assuming it's some kind of massive wrestling sim that you act as booker for, but I'd love to know why it seems to have such die-hard fans.

    Arguably the most popular game of the series, Extreme Warfare Revenge (EWR) was released on June 15, 2002. Now programmed in Visual Basic, the series now took a Windows style interface. One of the most significant changes this game took to the series was the fact that everything on a wrestling event is under the control of the user. In previous games in the series, angles, finishes and (in EWD) interviews were randomly created. This also coincided with the new feud system that was to count the matches, angles and interview victories between the workers involved. The match reports also took a slight change, featuring reviews of the matches from such Internet columnists as useless moron Scott Keith instead of a straight play-by-play style. However, the report style would revert back to its old style in TEW 2004.

    Another major feature that changed the way the game was played was the way the game world was represented. Unlike the previous games in which it was mostly focused on the major promotions such as the WWF and WCW, the promotion size feature meant many promotions in North America could now be included from the global sized promotions like WWE to the cult sized promotions like ROH to a mere backyard federation.

    From June 2002 to July 2003, the game has had some significant upgrades and new versions of the game were released. Some of these changes included changes to the TV timeslot system where the more further away from a primetime slot a televised event is shown, the fewer segments the user gets to book with. The Internet feature was also increased to include a website based on the independent promotions, a website based on backstage gossip and a website for your promotion. Relationships between workers were added to help bring in backstage politics where people are more willing put over their friends and less with their enemies. Eventually workers could also be in multiple tag teams with a statistic for experience which increases with each match fought together. Gimmicks were then added for wrestlers to use which would affect the overness of a worker over how strong that gimmick was. More changes were made to adapt to the independent promotions. This included multiple open contracts for workers, enabling them to work in up to three promotions and the ability of workers to go on Japanese tours, affecting the booking of cards. The optional ability of viewing a wrestler's picture was also added later in the game's production.

    It should also be noted that you could edit everything in the database (workers, promotions, relationships, TV stations, sponsors, belts etc. etc.) to your liking allowing for easy modding if you wanted to, say, book the Invasion or run mid-90s ECW or even...

    That's why you always run multiple saves including one scummy backyard/small indie fed where every match ends in somebody taking a sick bump.

    Also, I spent two hours on a CHIKARA scenario only to find out when the first monthly event rolled around that The Osirian Portal was booked to tour Japan for a year. Fuck. Does this kind of thing happen in TEW?

    Mistico is pretty slick. He's been improved by his time in NJPW as well, granted there are probably better lucha workers doing the rounds but none with the same widespread appeal.

    In King of Trios news, I'm really not looking forward to seeing Manami Toyota have to help Quackenbush carry Jigsaw through the tournament. A less terrible third member of that team would have been nice.
    On the plus side, Dick fucking Togo!
    I literally only need to see HARASHIMA and Team DDT announced and all my wrestling dreams will be fulfilled.

    Yeah, I ran a second TV show for errr... FCW I think in the North East Market, and didn't know you could hold multiple taping on a single night.

    Anyway, the night i'm taping? Flair, Backlund, Hogan and Dusty (Pretty much most of my main event talent) are off doing other shit.

    Got really pissed off at this point. But, you live and you learn.

    However, I'm making money hand over fist so it's all okay. I guess I'm one of those people that wish the game was a bit quicker and you grew the company. I mean, three months of selling out shows with A* matches don't get me any growth? :(

    I really don't get the current heel dynamic in WWE, particularly in terms of commentary.

    I don't know if it's informed by Creative taking news "debate" shows to heart, but I hate that one side tells the "truth" and the other side denies the reality of what they have just witnessed and/or believe that anything including unprovoked assault on a noncompetitor is justified because it's their guy who's doing it. Why are you apparently employing delusional hallucinating fucknugget sociopaths, Vince? Why?

    I thought Lawler was bad back when HHH ruled the heel roost, but at least Lawler didn't have HHH's balls completely in his mouth. And it's not just Miz--Cole thinks that every single heel is the motherfucking newest incarnation of Christshnuddha.

    It's not good heat. It's not entertaining, it's not funny, and I almost never think "Okay, he's got a point". It's just "shut the fuck up and get off my TV screen now please".

    And before someone asks: if the wrestling product weren't reasonably solid with some real high points (Del Rio, Bryan, etc.) I would stop watching.

    In addition, story from the warm-up show is that Homicide put on a great match last night.

    So yes, I think I probably will.
