Got home at 4pm.
Went to bed at midnight.
My lips are slightly chapped from my mouth hanging open for eight hours while playing Smackdown:JBI.
Yes, Story Mode is a bit of a pain, but other than that this game is everything I had (realistically) hoped it would be. I played for eight hours and I can’t wait to get home and play more.
Of course, I have other hobbies that are lingering in wait (RP, music, writing, IRC, etc). To prove I’m not a complete gaming social recluse I’ll probably do a little RPing tonight. ^^; Maybe sitting down for eight hours playing a video game isn’t healthy…
But DAMN if this game isn’t awesome. I’ll have to videotape some of my CAWs in action so I can bring it to work and make screenshots. I made a really accurate Controversial Jack… and once I unlock the Kung Fu moveset and some more Japanese movesets, Li Ping and The Great Yaga won’t be far behind…
But my favorite? My 5″1′ wonderkid L’il Suzie Dudley who does chokeslams and powerbombs and other moves usually only done by seven footers. She’s the world champion right now, too. Pasted Stone Cold Steve Austin in a last man standing match with a chokeslam from the ring to the ground, followed by The Last Ride. Needless to say, Austin didn’t get up. ^_^ And Suzie went ‘Wai!’ and celebrated in the ring after. Awwwr.
