How did they mess this up so badly?

>>Instead, is "The One" Billy Gunn and fumbles the ball like Assman did with his KOTR win
To be fair, Billy Gunnis a jabronie no-talent no-charisma piece of trash and never deserved to be KotR in the first place. Russo is a fucking idiot.

Billy & Chuck was the peak of Billy Gunn
Yeah the Outlaws were fun for a solid half year there but it's not like Billy particularly contributed to the success of the group, they barely even let him talk

>> No.7017362

So basically Mr. Ass was the Jannetty of Outlaws?

>> No.7017936

Much as it pains me to say this, Billy was the Michaels. As a duo, Road Dogg was obviously more charismatic and people liked him more. Problem is that Road Dogg is a fucking terrible singles guy, also he was gone by 2001 while Billy remained. Billy isn't much of a singles guy either but he did better at least, if only because for some reason they kept trying to make him a thing.

Me too. Actually, I have two copies of both World Tour and No Mercy, but whatever.

Awesome. You could sell your extra copies. Which what I did with some games I own.

I hate those fucking weebs that think VPW2 is the best

>> No.7019841

VPW2 is basically these four games optimized for puro, with MMA/PRIDE mode playing the role of gimmick matches.

I alway wondered why people rate the DoR games that high and even (sometimes) compare it to No Mercy in terms of the controls. I haven't played No Mercy (or VPW since I never had a N64), but if those have indeed similar controls I doubt that they are that good. Well, the DoR engine lived on for two more games (Wrestle Kingdom (XBox 360 and PS2) and Wrestle Kingdom 2: Pro Wrestling Sekai Taisen (now PS2 only since nobody gave a shit about wrestling games on the XBox)) but I didn't like both of them and did really regret importing at least WK1, since it suffered from the same problems as DoR2. Especially the loading times were absolutely atrocious. At least the roster of WK2 was awesome, but who cares about that, when the gameplay is shit. Yuke's always were a mediocre developer at best and a pretty lazy one at their worst, considering the jankyness of their other wrestling games.

- horrible loadings times, i.e. creatings custom entrances is a chore
- terrible progression System (especially WK1) that's more a matter of chance rather than skill, i. e. indeed only randomly learning moves from various opponents, so you can't actually plan your edit wrestlers moveset - and you have to go through the boring story mode again and again
- still outdated graphics (despite at least being slightly above the level of the PS2 WWE games)
- I don't like the grapple System with light (but fast) and "strong" (but slow) grapples with corresponding moves
- partially stiff und ugly animations and animation transitions (a "trademark" of Yuke's games)
- the many in-game minigames, i. e. test of strength etc. are bothersome and too much button mashing for my taste, WK2 has even more of these
- the counter system is garbage (mostly WK1)
- it's still just the old Day of Reckoning engine and it shows

+ awesome Roster for at least WK2 with lots of actual legends with also many western wrestlers, i.e. Vader, Steve Williams, Stan Hanson, Original Tiger Mask, Hayabusa etc.
