Zen-Nippon Joshi Pro Wrestling Kounin: Fire Pro Joshi All-Star Dream Slam  1994

Simmed Hokuto vs INFERNAL Kaoru.

Fire-Pro-Joshi-All-Star-Dream-Slam-Japan

The secret skater ref is EVIL, she fast counts. She's not a cheeleader like the other sites say, she has skates and skates around the ring fast and counts pins in a skater pose. Seems she's based on the infamous skater of the 90's.

I sold my Super Nintendo a few years ago, but the one game I did keep was All Star Dream Slam and the strategy guide for it. I wish there was a game that had Bull Nakano in it that wasn't 16 bit, but I don't think even the PS1 AJW game has her in it. I could be wrong, though.

I went through a kick about seven years ago of trying to collect as many Japanese wrestling games as possible, and doing quick reviews/summaries of them for my website. I only got through about 13 reviews but I collected a lot more than that. I found them while I was unpacking, tempted to get whatever consoles I need to play them and give the project another try.

I still regret never getting to play Giant Gram 2000. I searched on IRC and Usenet for a long time to try and find a copy of it to play on the Dreamcast and was never able to find one. I was also a broke college student at the time and wasn't in a position to pay for an actual copy of the game. Plus, I wanted to try it before I bought it. 

A close second is missing out on playing KoC 1 and 2. I worked at Electronics Boutique at the time and traded in my original PS2 for the slim one not knowing that modding the slim one looked like more of a pain in the ass. Being a novice at tinkering with electronics at the time, I never felt comfortable with making the leap to buying a modding kit AND KoC 1 and 2 in fear that I would fuck up my PS2.

Despite all that, I got to play a shit ton of VPW 2 and almost all of the Fire Pro games. In fact, my first exposure to Fire Pro was in the 90s. An efed I was in had an IRC channel and SFPWXP was the hotness. I downloaded an emulator, the rom for the game, and bought a controller for my computer and pretty much never looked back. Aside from the AKI games, Fire Pro has almost always been my jam. Even with my friends who had no exposure to Fire Pro, we had a fucking blast playing 6MS and Fire Pro D. I wish we still all lived closer together to play Fire Pro World.

I had the hacked versions of Giant Gram 2000 and Fire Pro D, I think Giant Gram had to change the audio to mono to get the file size low enough to fit on a regular CD-R.

Maybe someone can help me out here. I was checking out CC on WWE2K22 and I ran across a whole bunch of Memphis stuff. Hickerson, Tojo, best version of the Fabs that I've run across etc. Now I have multiple Microsoft accounts to get past the limit and to separate everything into different feds. So I log out and go into the account dedicated to AWA/Memphis and less then two minutes later, no matter what search terms I try, none of those can be found. Not the first time it's happened. Is there some kind of search hack that I'm unaware of?

I actually have Giant Gram 2000. I suck at it though.  I found a guy on Craigslist who was selling a modded Dreamcast with both Giant Gram games, the NJPW game, Fire Pro D, Royal Rumble, and an ECW game or 2.  Played for a bit and called it  a day.

Tomorrow, Saturday Night Slam Masters is being released for the Switch as part of Capcom Arcade 2. (In Japan, at least. Not sure about the rest of the world but apparently it comes with the option to play in English, so presumably not just here.

I have been looking forward to playing this one again for quite some time.

Got a 2 hour trial with WWE 2K22. Like, this game is pretty shitty, but there’sa good enough foundation here for future games.

Is the AEW game still supposed to be coming in September?  Shouldn't we have  a trailer by now?

They wanted it to be out by Christmas season. Black Friday ish.  We will be likely to see it Q1 2023 from what I've heard.

True to life explosions plz. 🤞

Honestly surprised they have that many match types. I really hope this is fun and not a mess. I'll even take a fun mess for their first game and hope they do a good job with post release support and dlc. 

Someday either wwe or aew will figure out the right method for wrestling games these days is something akin to what Multiversus is doing. Free to play, wrestlers, skins, moves, n such paywalled with extensive post release support.

For the record - the blurb BD posted comes from the announcement that they are now taking pre-orders on the game

Make of that what you will
