I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Blake's Smackdown vs. RAW 2010 Adventure

Posted on Thursday, October 15 @ 17:02:48 Eastern by Blake_Morse
While Duke was off roaming the desert on ATVs and riding around in fancy sports cars (you bastard!), I was off having some fun of my own. Granted the only thing that even comes close to the pimpness of Duke's trip was getting faded off on a bottle of Jameson's in a fancy jacuzzi tub while watching a Mythbusters marathon on the bathroom TV, I still had some good times on my trip to LA. Most of them while playing around with WWE Smackdown vs. RAW 2010. Here's a quick wrap-up of my impressions.

I'm not the big Wrestling fan in the office, Nick is. And he's usually the one who goes to these things. I hadn't played a wrestling game since the glory days of the N64, before the World Wildlife Federation made all my childhood memories a copyright infringement, so almost everything was new to me.

Fortunately for those who are on the same skill level as me, there is now a training mode that you're dropped into on the main menu, making it much easier to pick up the mechanics of the game and get at least a basic grasp on what you're doing before stepping into the ring for the real deal. This is a great feature for anyone like me who doesn't even understand the most basic of concepts in the genre and a good way for vets to get a grasp on gameplay changes.

The thing that really impressed me was the amount of all-around customization options available to players. Not only can you make custom superstars, but custom finishing moves, and logos as well. On top of that, players will for the first time be able to create their own storylines and plots that lead into custom matches. I can't wait to get my hands on some old General Hospital scripts (I wonder how Randy Orton will feel when he finds out the baby that the Undertaker is carrying isn't his?).

Also, present at the conference was current WWE United States Champion, The Miz. And he was none too pleased with the programmer's decision to give his avatar a rating in the mid-seventies. He had some colorful words for them, I can assure you. I'm kinda surprised no one got suplexed.

As part of the festivities, THQ had all the journalists create their own Superstar from which The Miz then picked a winner. I made myself a gigantic and fairly accurate Incredible Hulk wrestler. I then tested his mettle against the even larger neon-leopard skin pants-wearing masked chicken that one of my colleagues had made on the same PS3. Who would've thought that the Hulk would meet his end in the form of a chicken man? Another fellow made a surprisingly good Heath Ledger-inspired Joker. A little more buff than the real deal, but impressive nonetheless.

I didn't win the ultimate prize and couldn't tell you who did because as soon as I'd lost, I hopped in a limo and was on my way back to the airport to return to my precious Oakland, California. You can expect a full review from our half-naked man fighting expert, Nick Tan, next Tuesday when the game officially launches on PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, PS2, Wii and PSP. Until then, enjoy this video of Nick at another S vs.R event shot earlier this year.
