The original Fire Pro Wrestling was a game specifically for the hardcore fans of pro wrestling. I'm not talking about the male soap-opera that is WWE, but a more brutal version such as some of the Japanese wrestling circuits ...
Pro Wrestling X has been a distant dream for Dave Wishnowski, the independent game developer who wanted more out of his wrestling videogame experience than what the big-budget titles were offering. Inspired by games like AKI'...

Some people like Skyrim. Some people don't. From what I can tell, the difference between the two groups lies in their interest (or lack there of) in wandering around in a virtual landscape that earnestly attempts t...
WWE '12 is still not on store shelves, but that hasn't stopped THQ from prepping for a future DLC release. The Diva pack will be the first DLC to hit, which is planned to be released in December. Here's all the Diva's include...
I don't recall ever seeing a game getting a Latin American Edition, but it's fitting that a wrestling game would blaze that trail. Masked luchador Sin Cara will be replacing Randy Orton as the cover athlete for WWE 12 in...
