E3: It's a Real World/Road Rules challenge with The Miz

I got to meet up with WWE's The Miz, however briefly, at E3 a few minutes ago, and I have to say, this f*cker is intense. I think I'm so used to interviewing relatively subdued game developers that I forgot what it was like ...

Review: WWE All-Stars photo
Review: WWE All-Stars
by Nick Chester

As someone who grew up in the ’80s, I have fond memories of these rubber WWF toys that I’d ricochet all over my house. Drop Hulk Hogan on his rubbery toes in just the right place and he’d spring forward, smashing face-first into an unsuspecting “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Savage would return the favor, and then I’d tumble them around in the air, textbook wrestling moves amped up to a thousand by my overactive child mind.

It was pretty awesome.

With WWE All-Stars, THQ has managed to successfully translate that childhood rush into a videogame.

I think it’s pretty awesome, too.
