Watch THQ’s WWE Superstar Challenge, Win Prizes

April 1, 2011 | | One Comment

Later tonight, THQ will be live streaming their Wrestlemania XXVII Superstar Challenge on UStream, and one of the biggest reasons to watch is for your chance to win a number of prizes (and if you’re a WWE fan, the prizes are pretty cool). THQ has done this for the past, what, 8 years? This is just part of their Wresltemania weekend coverage, though.

The event is two hours long, and includes a live chat as well, where fans can interact with one another and talk about the event. Here are a few details:

The Superstar Challenge will bring back the defending Champion JTG, and other Superstars including JR and Jerry Lawler, Sheamus, John Morrison, Dolph Ziggler, Evan Bourne, Kofi Kingston, Dusty Rhodes, Ted DiBiase Jr, Beth Phoenix, Gail Kim, Sgt Slaughter, The Usos, Chris Masters, and Ricky Steamboat in a 1v1 live elimination tournament

The prizes? A chance to win tickets to a WWE live showing (PPV, Raw, or Smackdown), autographed Macho Man and Steve Austin figurines, free copies of WWE All-Stars, some JR’s BBQ Sauce, a bunch of other figurines…and more, apparently.

For live streams (when they’re available), and a video highlighting events from last year’s, check after the jump! It is kind of an ugly setup, though :P.

Official Review: Smackdown vs Raw 2011

October 26, 2010 | | 7 Comments

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.
