G'day one 'n all.

 

Couldn't help but notice the subject of Fire Pro Wrestling Returns creeping up in several different video game related topics. So to put those disruptions to rest, here's a place to talk about all your FPW experiences. Having recently bought the game I know how much fun it can be and would appreciate having a place to talk about it! Be it just expressing personal joys and woes of the game or sharing ideas such as CaWs and logos.

Brilliant, brilliant game. In the process of creating Mike Awesome, Samoa Joe, Abyss, Curryman, and Bull. And then DC, Darkie, Reno, Nimf, Gringo, Ray, GA, Gem and Rog to follow, i just need to find a hangman style hold.....oh, what fun. The first time you see a quadruple reversal makes your spine tingle......its just.....great.

I too am waiting for money for the credit card, but as soon as I get paid I am ordering this. Playing WCW Revenge to tide me over in the meantime.

One thing i will say....it doesnt have the glitz and glamour of Smackdown, but, if you've got two similarly skilled players, there are few better multiplayer games. If they transfer the animation on display here into 3d......it would change wrestling games forever i think.

It's always the dream! Either that or online multiplayer.

 

I'm currently working on the Chikara roaster in Fire Pro. There was a moment in a match that made me mark out the other day. After both men exchanging several chops with eachother, one of launched a flurry of machine gun chops into his opponents neck, knocking him down and recieving a huge pop from the audience. Even when it's a game, it's still real to me dammit!!

Or the pops when certain wrestlers come out. Me? i'll never tire of "Ooouwaah!". Theres no excuse for not having random "Brainbustahhhh!" shouts in there though. Hell, Nash is weak as hell in the leg department.....and you dont get up from the Atomic Leg Drop....of doom. This makes me actually WANT to play as Hogan...

Something that makes me smile is when you reverse a tombstone in the same way 'Taker reversed Orton's tombstone attempt a good two years ago (me's thinks). Also, having each wrestler reverse moves in different ways depending on their fighting styles recieves top marks from me!

Tell me about it. The first time I watched a sequence of reversals (six in all!) i was literally drooling. And Im not even a hardcore, chain wrestling fan! Have you noticed the sound effect for plum shots is a cowbell? its ace!

It has to be shipped from Italy I'm afraid.

 

Although the price is reasonably high (around £40 all 'n all if I can remember) it came to my front door within two days of ordering!

 

A lot of the extra touches are beautiful! Such as the cowbell/low blow, being able to have your wrestler shout out noises/phrases during moves or even being able to get the crowd clapping for a huge build up after performing a clapping taunt yourself - it all combines to make a truely enoyable experience!

When I get paid I actually buy in a PS2 just so I can order the game...

 

Get this and some of the classic Smackdown games (Know Your Role, Shut Your Mouth and Here Comes the Pain) and I will be a very, very happy man.

 

Cheers AH for the info on buying it by the way!

 

No problem mate. The more people that buy it, the better chance of the next one getting released. And the more exposure it gets. I should work for the publishers really...:xyx

And the more people who get the game the more contributers to this topic! Maybe, just maybe, every second post won't be by you or me, Antihero :lol

Thing is, if enough people start buying it, THQ also have to sit up and take notice, and make necessary improvements to their engine, its a win/win situation. The only problem when you have a lack of a competitor is complacency, which i believe Smackdown demonstrated ably this year. With TNA coming out and this, its got potential to be a good year for grapplefans.
