    is this THQ? Isn't there a wrestling game coming to Wii aswell? It could actually turn out really well if they tried something with the Wii controls, you can bet it'll end up feeling stuck on though.

    If they could pull off a enjoyable game on the DS I will fuck up my DS screen playing something like this Smilie.

    Truth is I have not played a wrestling game in years, I am waiting on TECMO wrestling on the NES though, as good as PunchOut! is. [LS]

    Ahhh - eight years ago I'd have loved this news. Now... not so much.

    Only a No Mercy remake will get me back into it. Smilie

    Meh, I've never liked wrestling.

    Now what the DS really needs is a good Baseball game.

    Well wrestling is very homoerotic, so the ds is a perfect choice (as JB's innuendo implied)

    As much hope as I have for this, I doubt the end result will be anything less than gimmicky. Can't wait to mess around with CAW mode though!

    I hope they can fit in some tribute for Chris Benoit, if it's not too late.

    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

    I saw Rick Flair trying to suggest that what he did could be drug induced phychosis from persistant steroid use. [LS]

    well anybody who kills his wife and child is and always will be scum in my book whether its chris benoit or the queen of England whether under the influence of drugs he shouldn't have been taking or not. Back to the point, i havn't played a game since the first smackdown vs raw, somebodys alreay said it'll probably turn out gimmicky, if they can make use of both screens that would be good, a good storyline and decent graphics which we all know the ds is capable might make me sway towards this, i doubt it though.

    Is it going to have CHRIS BENOIT on it?
