HEY RADICAL LARRY HOW ABOUT A HAIRCUT

****MIC TO THE WILLY***


Very excited to be following the new wrestling project on Dickie's FB feed. Hard to believe i'm playing a wrestling game from 2008 and still find 'surprises'. Let's hope this new project is a legacy title and not one to be passed over like the mobile game [wrestling revolution].



Customisable rings!

I agree. If you ever get another chance, you should bust out your special trick expecially for him.
I'll echo a sentiment from earlier in the thread, and suggest he not do this, especially not this early. If changes were to be made to make the game more brutal, I would revive the idea of making weapons more deadly, which at least has the possibility of backfiring.

While the first ring might initially seem like a good idea, I foresee a lot of "Rope Break". The game is looking like a proper sequel though, with plenty of improvements to keep the game fresh. MDickie is doing it again.

I just like that as much as MDickie tries to expand his games, they maintain that same janky-looking unfinished air that makes his games what they are.

Also a quick sign because I remembered a story of someone bringing a bitcoin sign to a WWE show and having it confiscated at the door.

"The first 90 percent of the code accounts for 90 percent of the development time. The remaining 10 percent of the code accounts for the other 90 percent of the development time."

MDickie saves a lot of time by never bothering with the remaining 10 percent. (And "borrowing" the textures other people make.)

I have a hard time imagining that any of his games wouldn't be improved by customizable rings.

MDickie is really cool in a sort of Ed Wood of video games kinda way. Hard Time is a great idea for a computer game, it's the slipshod execution that makes it into simultaneously poo poo and great experience.

Looks like Neeson's stalking Larry or something? First he runs in during a match, then he transfers to the same fed Larry ends up in... I sense a pattern.

Also, I love how you still hold grudges against the racist fuckers from the first playthrough way back when.

Also also holy poo poo Scotbird

Neeson was convinced Larry was his friend, but had betrayed him by befriending Liam Neeson. Either MDickie has programmed him to be weird as gently caress, or this is amazing emergent storytelling.

Yeah, what the gently caress kind of name is that.

Every single motherfucker thinks they're gonna save the fuckin' world... Why not do something about the shitty economy or whatever instead?! Son of a bitch!

This thread inspired me to reinstall the game. I've made it my goal this time around that, win or lose, I won't quit back to the menu until everyone else (competitors, refs and run-ins) is injured, preferably fatally.

After my first match in wrestling school, I got signed on by MLG. Immediately upon signing, the booker wanted me to pay him for a favorable ref. (Same as just happened to Larry!) I refused, and ended up fighting the booker in my next match. I won by pin, then beat him with a chair until he lost both arms and a foot. He died from the injuries, and my next match was a tribute match... for Doctor Stainton. Who is still alive.

This game.

A run-in distraction into a cheeky rollup is one of the cheapest ways to generate heat and start a feud.

Oh yeah, you can get turned down. The offer MLG was making was a loving joke for what Radical Larry should be going for at this point in his career, even with the lovely popularity he has from all the bullshit losses, which is why they didn't even blink when he just about doubled their offer.

To be fair, the whole contract system is stupid in this game, but you can get refused pretty easily. $1000 per match is peanuts for most of the feds though.

Scotbird is a face, and it turns out MLG is a crooked wrestling promotion, but in a good way! Larry storms through the ranks, meeting old *friends* and overcoming the odds in awesome style. The finish will please you.

e: ahaha holy poo poo the guy died? Don't mess with Scotbird or he'll mess you up without even layin' a finger on you, I guess.

I'm having a lot of fun seeing the "WAHEY!" and "BOO-URNS" signs pop up.

I like that pretty much anyone that messes with Larry this time around is getting their poo poo wrecked before he discovers some latent power. Even Liam Neeson didn't go away unscathed, he leaves one federation for another to chase Larry down, and Liam's apprentice loses his title in what was supposed to be a filler match. Cult of Mictothewilly's getting pushed to the moon.
