Outside of those brief appearances, Hulk is about as frequently seen as Waldo. Between matches in the career mode, you’ll watch comic book-style panels explaining that you’re working for a rotten wrestling booker named Booker. Still shots of Hogan are shown during these, complete with speech bubbles over his head. It probably would have taken Hulk an extra 15 minutes in the VO booth to record the entirety of the game’s text dialogue, but I assume he was too busy marrying women that look identical to his daughter.

Ice cold.

Can't wait for the Quick Look now.

Doesn't surprise me. When I first see it, it looked like the biggest pile of shit I have seen for the Kinect so far.

Wow even more than the Phelps swimming game. I mean don't get me wrong they're both crap kinect games but I think wrestling- at least in so far as a premise- sounds fun as a kinect title.

I don't think the Phelps game is bad, it seems to have good mechanics and tracks fine for all the different swimming styles. However, it shouldn't be a game on it's own just not enough variety, If this was released as an 2012 Olymipics game with a some different events thrown in i could see it being a pretty good game.

As big of a fan as I've always been of him, Flair is so desperate nowadays that he'll do anything for cash.

I suggest a Flair Flop simulator for Kinect.

@TeflonBilly: That is both a brilliant idea for a terrible Kinect game and a potential health hazard/class action lawsuit.

You're hired.

@coakroach: Hell, we could even use the Kinect voice support to have a mini-game where you cut Flair-esque promos until you got an aneurism

This is probably going to make the game much more entertaining than if it had been merely okay. Can't wait for the quick look on this one.

Im kind of wondering what Hulk's wife has to do with anything. Any attractive tan blonde girl is going to kind of look like his daughter. Making an attractive blonde tan girl with your expert sperm doesn't make them less attractive.

Anyway, GI reviewer, enjoy the most attention you'll ever get for anything, I guess.

Jeff? Quick Look?

Edit: From Formspring!

"They didn't send us a copy (they said they would!) and the distribution was so poor that it took awhile for me to track down and buy a copy. I have one now, we'll probably get it taken care of this week."

This reminds me of how Hulk Hogan turned down the grills that George Foreman became the spokesman for. He wouldn't be in this mess if he has all that grill money! (Well, maybe he would be, because he probably wouldn't have all that money.)

Come on, 1.0? There has to be at least some ironic goodness buried in there.

Hogan putting his name on a crappy product? Say it ain't so! I look forward to this quicklook, might be the most amusing Hogan related thing I have seen in awhile.
