Former EGM editor, excellent friend, and fellow pro-wrestling smark Ray Carsillo was my guest for this episode of RPadTV 3000. This time around, Ray joined me for a WrestleQuest review. This game is the latest from the fine folks at Mega Cat Studios. Some of you might have played Mega Cat’s Coffee Crisis, which is a retro beat-’em-up that’s reminiscent of Double Dragon. The studio’s latest game is an old-school turn-based RPG infused with pro-wrestling awesomeness.
On paper, Ray and I should have loved this game. We both love classic RPGs and we both love pro-wrestling. However, as you know, videogames are not played on paper. They’re played on your television. In the WrestleQuest review above, Ray and I talk about how numerous pacing issues and even more bugs combined to turn a game that we should have loved into one that we merely liked.
Before we started the WrestleQuest review, Ray and I caught up on other news in the world of pro-wrestling. All Elite Wrestling’s historic PPV event, AEW All In from Wembley Stadium, was a great success. Unfortunately, it has been overshadowed by a backstage altercation between CM Punk and the man formerly known as Jungle Boy, Jack Perry.
Last week was a sad one for wrestling fans, as the legendary Terry Funk and the well-on-his-way-to-becoming-legendary Bray Wyatt passed away. Both came from hugely influential pro-wrestling families. While Funk lived a full and amazing life, Wyatt (real named Windham Rotunda) was only 36. Both men provided pro-wrestling fans with unforgettable moments.
When you have a chance, please check out the WrestleQuest review that Ray and I recorded. In addition to discussing what we liked and didn’t like about the game, we also spoke about the graphics, sound, and surprisingly wonderful writing.
