    I think he let his hatred for LJN get in the way when it comes to SNES/Sega's Royal Rumble and RAW. I mean after all it really wasn't made by LJN....it was made by Acclaims Salt Lake City Sculptured Software and only PUBLISHED by LJN. Those games where fine, the grappling was easy despite how it's presented here, and they actually had each wrestlers finishers; which previous games lacked.

    The one on Sega Genesis has a "grapple meter" and you can tell if you're beating the computer. My Niece and I play it all the time..she loves it. She always wants to be Shawn Michaels or Brett "The Hitman" Hart, because Shawn's pants have hearts on them and Brett Hart has pink pants on in the game, lol

    I love the fact that he plays as the undertaker in every video segment. Love it! (FYI Undertaker is my personal favorite wrestler.)

    Y'know. I was watching this on the comedown of two hits of acid, and I was convinced you knew people like me watch your show, as I was. Because it just worked so well. The high contrast/colorful background, the random transitions into absurd situations, and those exaggerated facial expressions. Made me feel like a 7 year old watching Saturday Morning Cartoons again.

    You didn't review snk's 3 count bout? That was a pretty decent title too and felt a tad bit better and close to a simulator compared to Saturday night slam masters

  • fmdof

    "Seriously, who are these guys?" I'm naming all of them just by their pixelized photo.

  • UnityDeicide

    Wait, he OWNS HONGKONG97?

    No Nes muscle wrestling, or Tecmo wrestling? Those were my favorite games. and some of the few we had on the nes.

    I’ve never came so close to dying of nostalgia more than me hearing the AVGN spout some of my favorite quotes from WWF stars

    Steel Cage Challenge had one of my favourites on the cover despite that person not being in the company at the time of the games release, so just for old times sake: I'm The Mountie, I'm Handsome, I'm Brave, I'm Strong. I'm The Mountie, and I enforce the law. You can try to run, but you can never hide, The Mountie always gets his man. .

  • deviljon

    While I agree that LJN is the worst I do think their high water mark was those snes WWF games.

    Who does he think he is Simon Belmont that had me dying.

    I'd also recommend Ultimate Muscle: Path of the Superhero. There's also another Ultimate Muscle game on the Gamecube and Galactic Wrestling on Ps2. You could also play Def Jam Vendetta and Fight for NY. If those don't tickle your fancy you could always play Tekken with King or Armor King or play Virtua Fighter with Wolf Hawkfield.

    Saturday Night Slammasters character design was done by the Fist of the North Star guy, Tetsuo Hara too, that game and especially it's sequel kick major ass

    RoYal Rumble and Raw were very good games, spent hours playing them

    5:55 "The only real difference between these shit fests is the roster." Makes me wonder if you actually played these games because that's not true. For 1) Super Wrestlemania had extremely shitty gameplay that was greatly improved in the sequel, Royal Rumble, For 2) WWF Raw had some pretty cool cheat codes. Rumble and Raw were similar to each other but completely different from Super Wrestlemania. EDIT Also, the sound effects were pretty good, and, for the time, the graphics were bad ass.

    OMG. Realization. Is Strong Bad from Homestar Runner named after Tag Team Fighting Strongbads? His character is a wrester who wears a red lucha libre like Strong Bads in the game lol

    In Wrestlemania on NES, I think you hold down and click both a and b to pin, if I remember right.

  • Little Mac86

    If I'm not mistaken. I believe you hit b, or a, the moment your tag team partner gets to you. I DO, however, recall this game being a mountain of hot dog poo. Happy gaming everyone.
