Just got Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain.
Made myself a create-a-wrestler right off, but noticed my starting attributes were really low compared to previous Smackdown games. I googled to see what the deal was, and found out I had to win matches in season mode to get more. No big deal, Season mode it is!
So I take my new dude there, noticing his stats are awful compard to everyone else. Some of the divas were even tougher than my guy.
Well, hopefully it doesn't make a diff in matches right~? Well it does, a huge difference.
Fought Rico for my first match but it was really hard. Well not way hard, just harder than I would've thought. So my next Smackdown show, Undertaker tries to punk me out in the back so I'm like fuck you man! So he threatens to hunt me down and hurt me. :P
Didn't care until I noticed they booked me in a no countout match with Undertaker
I saw his OP stats. . .knew I was F'd if he was really that much better than Rico.
Soon as the match started, was obvious he was going to win. It was basically a squash match until I managed to get outside the ring. I ran up the ramp but there was nowhere to go. Undertaker just beat on me for 15-20 minutes. . .Chokeslam after Chokeslam, Tombstone after Tombstone, until my guy's face was covered in blood.
I managed to mount enough offense. . occaisionally, to whittle his health down. I was up there for like 25-30 minutes getting him to red. Getting maybe 5% of the offense in the whole time :\
So I run back to the ring, ready to clothesline him then do Sweet Chin Music, my finisher. But then I realize it's when he's groddy and I do it from behind, not when he's on the ground (dunno why I thought that. Or at least for some reason the game didn't let me do it).
So I risk a ground pickup to go for the Rock Bottom, but he gets up and grapples me
I desperately hammer counter and get in a low blow! Then I'm like fuck this! And hit the buttons to steal his finisher, and nailed him with the Last Ride, dead center of the ring. My guy stumbled over and fell on top of him for the 1, 2, 3 pin! God damn was that hard!
Fun ass game though. . .that was just my second match. Next time I think I will just take a loss. . .or I need to set match limit to 20 minutes or something. That was brutal.
