Does it have create a superstar and finisher on it? If so how good are they.
    And for anyone that does have the PS3 version can you play it online with other people and if so can you play your created wrestlers?

    You can play online with CAWs but they can't use any custom textures (ie: T shirt prints, tatoos) on CAWs you want to use online. I guess it has to do with a netcode issue. But it is cool you can use CAWs online anyhow. I have CAWs of Me, My Brother, InkF301, and several co workers thus far.

    Create A Finisher is exclusive to the 360, and PS3 but isn't anything special.
    You pick different moves, chain the animations together, and there's your finisher. Those versions also get the Y2J Highlight Reel. So you can take clips mid match, and share them online. The ONE gameplay buff other than graphics the other two versions have over the Wii is the Inferno Match. Basically you set the ring on fire, and when it hits a fatal temperature you throw your opponent into the fire.
    That is it.
    The 360 version retains the Mp3 for your intros feature from the last two years which is cool if you don't like the stock game music.

    The Wii version however has INTERACTIVE INTROS. This means instead of the usual pick an animation to the ring stuff, you can pick several, and then GET TO DO THEM IN REAL TIME. So if you make a Hogan CAW for instance, you would have to do the hand to the ear, and flexing motions at the stage.
    On the way down you can do other things. Like my character takes peoples signs, and rips them.

    You can pick a stock wrestler's intro too, and do those moves. The only benefit to that is it gets your CAWs placard to show up on the screen like on TV.

    Either way taking part in those intros boosts your momentum meter so You are a lot closer to a SPECIAL when the match starts.

    That must be why I was able to do the F-U like 90 seconds into a match against MVP because I got my momentum so high (It was using the Tribute to the Troops Arena and the interactive Salute gave me 20% momentum each time

    A minor miscalculation on the part of John Cena cost him his match at the Tribute To The Troops on NBC. Tommy Dreamer Effectively locked in the Boston Crab forcing the Champ to tap out. After this Tommy gave Cena the Conchairto.
    Will the Champ get retribution on the ECW legend? Find out Tuesday night on ECW

    Well they have made some improvements, I just wish they would wait an extra 6 months and develop it some more. Its based on an enhanced RE4 Wii engline so there is quite a bit they can do with it we are not seeing in these movies, the zombie count went from like 5 per screen to like 12, now it just needs to get up to the 30-40 they promised they could get

    Thankfully its going to be budget priced similar to RE4 Wii

    Now here is a Zombie game I am sooooo looking foward to House of the Dead Overkill newest video



    -Dual Wielding Wiimote guns
    -70's grain filter with motion blur
    -Directors Cut mode when you beat the game

    I was thinking about getting lego batman and indiana. Only decision is which console. Is there any real difference between the Ps2, PS3 and Wii versions?

    Resolution.

    PS2 super low resolution. It honestly looks like a 320x200 resolution

    Wii looks to be 640x480

    PS3/360 look like they're running around 1280 x720

    If you get the PC versions of these games they cost a good $15 less, have the same content, work with the 360 gamepad, and are scalable in terms of graphics. The requirements aren't very high either so a 4 year old system could put out something comparable to the Wii's display fairly simply.

    Whatever way you go though there isn't much difference outside of resolution. The textures seem to be the same, the polys on the characters seem to be the same. Running on the pS3/360 or a decently equipped PC will just have a sharper resolution.
    Unless someone knows something I don't, the content is identical.

    Yes, that's what I think too, but unfortunately, I haven't found any concrete info like I did for GH3. :S

    Look for more info around Jan or Feb, since GHWT has a drum kit they will need to figure out how to go about that since the PC sales pale in comparison to the consoles and the shelf space needed might make some retailers angry in an already small PC section that most stores have

    But I would assume it will at least be available direct purchase so that they can take advantage of the customers from GHIII

    Ah! Good points about the space taken up! As far as the instruments go, I'm pretty sure they would just use the 360 ones. Well, fingers crossed!

    Yeah that is one of the reasons I think you will see the game come out fairly quickly. I was just in Target and Best Buy today and saw Guitar Hero Aerosmith for Mac (I assume its for PC as well) and that game came out in June so there is a 2-3 month delay it seems between console and PC versions

    I just won a Nintendo Wii from a Blockbuster Video contest. It came in the mail last week and I still haven't decided whether I want to sell it or keep it and play games. I really haven't been into video games since high school and the only time I play are when I am with friends when we play multi-player games. Gaming is a lot more expensive now than when I was a kid and I've seen how it can eat up a lot of a person's free time. Still, I hate to sell it only to regret not having given it a chance.

    Actually most video games are in line with what they've always cost. Remember SFII on the SNES @ $70 @ launch? I do

    Gaming doesn't have to eat up all your free time unless you let it.
    You don't HAVE to become an MMO obsessed poopsocker! Hang out with friends. Go outside once in awhile! Go to work! We do!

    That said there are some games that are epic sagas that beg for completion.
    Thankfully you can reach a checkpoint (Or save anywhere in PC games )
    Then go back to it when everyone is sort of busy with life on your day off while you're bored at home.

    Go to the store with your giftcards. Pick up Super Smash Bros Brawl, Guitar Hero World Tour, and No More Heroes.

    Everything is going to be alright. We promise.

    Congrats! Could this also be one of "Murphy's Rules"? I've noticed that things won in contests usually go to people who want the prizes the least!

    Keep! The Wii is so much fun. I got mine for a (very early) birthday gift last year and although I'm not a huge gamer, I do love it ever so much. It makes everything more fun. Plus, Hayley (my GF) loves to play it, too.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    The Wii is perfect for party games. With the exception of RB2, when we have friends over, they all want to play games like Raving Rabbids, Mario Party 8, and Mario Kart.

    IMO, the most expensive part about gaming today is the hardware, and you already got the system, itself, for free, so you've already gotten past the biggest part of that hurdle. Yeah, if you want to get extra controllers, etc, that can add up quick. But once you've done that, I think the cost is actually cheaper these days. And really, since you paid nothing for the actual system, the cost of a few extra controls is really not that bad.

    Back in the day of the original NES, for example, if I recall correctly, most games were easily over $50, and rarely did they drop much below that (mainly because cartridges, as a format, separate from the cost of programming the game, were a lot more expensive to make than CDs/DVDs are now).

    Today, for the Wii, $50 is the most you are going to pay for most games (with maybe the occasional exception of a game that comes with a special peripheral or something like that). When taking inflation into consideration, you are actually paying a lot less for a new game. And many of them drop in price quite a bit. You can easily find some decent games for $20 to $30 new (meaning not used, and not necessarily the most recent release), soemtimes less.

    And if you check stores like Gamestop, or any other stores that sell used video games (there is a local chain of stores in my area called Disc Replay, for example), you can find a lot of used games in good condition for pretty cheap. Since the Wii already has a couple of years worth of titles available, you can easily get a few of the better, older games for the system for very little money.

    If you know where to look and what to look for, you really don't have to spend a lot of $.


    Like I said, the worst part of gaming today, in terms of the expense, is the hardware cost. And really, the 360 and PS3 are much worse in that area than the Wii when buying the actual systems to start out with.


    If you don't think it's going to be your cup of tea, that's fine. But, you can really enjoy this system at a relatively low cost if you want to. But, the Wii is still in demand. If you try it out, and decide that you don't want it, even a slightly used system in good condition will get you some decent cash. It's up to you, by I would advise giving it a shot.
