THQ has announced the inclusion of Brock Lesnar as a playable wrestler in WWE ’12!!
The game will be released on Nov 22, 2011.
“This Fall, experience the phenomenon that is taking the world by storm: Professor Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax, Steelport’s most popular survival game show in Saints Row: The Third. Contestants from around the globe compete for cash, prized, and their own lives in games of death and dismemberment. It’s fun for the whole family.”
Of course this video isn’t for the whole family, and is therefore required to be behind the age gate. Also, there is a warning that the blinking lights may cause a seizure, so be careful!

Saints Row: The Third is set to be released on November 15th in America and November 18th in Europe, 2011.
There are numerous game franchises out there that have an update every year. You have your Maddens, NBA games, FIFA, MLB, Guitar Heroes, Call of Dutys, etc. You also have the Smackdown vs. Raw series. Out of all the annual franchise games, Smackdown vs. Raw (and going further back, the Smackdown franchise) has always been the one I would spend countless hours playing, and 2011’s entry has proven to be no different.
To my memory, I have played every single game since the original Smackdown on the PS1 (Though it wasn‘t the only WWE/F franchise I‘ve played). The nice thing about this one in particular is they are always trying something different every year, rather than doing minor tweaks or just updating the roster (which seems to be a commonality amongst most annual sports games).
As many of you know, I recently got to check out the title in Los Angeles back in August, where I came back and gave you my hands-on preview. With the time span between then an now out of the way, how does the retail version of the game stack up to past titles and the promises of the new features that have been announced? Hopefully this review will answer those questions.
