Q:Will Hulk Hogan have his his Yellow and Red costume and his old entrance and
music?

A: Hogan have the Wolfpac costume and i think he have the Wolfpac Music.

Q&A Part 5

Q: I was just wondering if the N64 version was going to be missing a lot of
theme music. Also, do you know who the hidden wrestlers are going to be?

A: Yes the N64 version is going to be missing theme music but that does not mean the wrestler will not have  theme at all some of them I think will use other wrestler theme or made up ones. I will will updating my wrestlers list soon with a sign next to the hidden wrestlers.

Q:Can I see a picture of sting and luger beating hogan and bret hart

A: Sorry i don't have any pics like that perhaps you should ask Gameinformer.

Q:Q:Does Buff Bagwell come out to his new "Buff Daddy" music or NWO Black
and White or NWO Wolf Pac?

A: He come out with his new music.

Q: Do you know if there is a Create a Pay-Per-View Mode like you can create wwf arena or something else like in wwf attitude.

A: There is NO create a PPV mode. But there is a PPV mode where you put in a password and you get to use match line up from the real WCW PPV'S.

Q:1. In the N64 version of the game,will some wrestlers have their own
theme music? If so which ones?
2. Can Sting do both the Scorpion Death Drop and Scorpion Death Lock?
3. Can costumes be switched like in Revenge? ex. Hollywood changing
into Hulk Hogan

A: 1. Yes some wrestlers have there own theme but i am not sure who the are. 2. Yes i said it once before Sting do both Death Drop and Death Lock. 3. Again another repeated question, the answer is there is no Costume Switch option.

Q: Just wondering if Bret Hart entrance music is the music that he come out currently in real life or is it one of his older wcw theme music? Also wondering why is several Mayhem Movies that i have seen. why is Hogan coming out with Wolfpac music?

A: Yes he come out with his currently Real Life music. In Mayhem hogan is in the Wolfpac that why he come out with there music.

Q:1.In Mayhem If you do a special move and then when you pin them will they get
pinned on the first time or do you have to keep on doing your special move.
2.Some special moves such as Hogans leg drop will you be able to do them
without the other person being on the floor or do you have to get them on the
floor, and if they don't have to be on the floor, then how do you get them on
the floor
3.Is Goldbergs spear one of his special moves or just a regular move
4.When do you get to use your special move, and do you grapple them and press
the joystick like in Revenge

A: Yes if you do a special move and pin your opponent the will get pinned .                                                            2. To perform Hogan Leg Drop you must knock your opponent on the ground and then you can do it. 3.Goldberg Spear is a regular move.                                                                                                                          4. Not sure how you do a special move in Mayhem.

Q:Will Sid Vicious be in Mayhem, I think he will maybe as hidden or something
because I went to Nitro in Miami and they asked us to chant ``SID`` so the EA.
people could record it and put it in the game.

A: As far as i know Sid is not in the game, the game has been finished awhile ago.

Q: There is only one thing I figured out WcW Mayhem Sux alot.

A: Say whatever you want, as far as i know WcW Mayhem is a good wrestling game.

Q:Is there interference?
  The price of 38 bucks is probably for the US,but can you confirm any
   Canadian price?

A: Yes there is Interference. I don't know the Canadian price for Mayhem.

Q: Hey, I was wondering if you can use different names then the set ones, and
just not hear Schavione announce their names? For instance, I make a guy
named Nail. Can that stay, and Tony just doesn't announce his name? Another
question, if you fight in the back, will Randy Savage somehow be able to do
the elbow drop off a car or something, or is that just limited to the ring.
Another question, will Chris Jericho be on it? The official website says he
wont, but your page says he will. I'm confused.

A: Yes you can put your own name but Schavione will not announce it. I have been wondering that too, but i don't know the answer. As far as i know Chris Jericho is in the game as a hidden wrestler that has been confirmed.

Q: Are the automatically going to tap out from their special submissions like the crippler Crossface? Are the Controls exactly like Revenge? Can you have interference and is it the right people?

A: When you do a special that is a finisher your opponent would most likely submit. The Controls are just like Revenge. Yes there is interference and yes it is the right people.

Q: In Q&A#2 if you can rate wcw mayhem and you told me you can't because you have not played it yet, if you have not played it how come you know there is only one costume and how you know wrestler tap out with the first and how you know there isn't a create-an-arena like wwf attitude.

A: Ea. has confirmed that there is only one costume for each wrestler. I never said that when you do a special that is a finisher that the wrestler will tap out i said the would most LIKELY Tap out. There is no Create an arena that has also been confirmed by many sources.

Q: Do you know if the outside of the ring going to look like it look's now or is it going to change? Will Hak be in WcW Mayhem? I think in WcW Mayhem there is more than one costume because if you go to wcwmayhem.com you will see one wrath wearing Green and Black and the other wearing blue and black. And there are 3 sting's one with black jeans and black tanktop and with a small scorpion, #2 the one with real life costume and the red sting. If you donn't believe me go to ign.com and check out the stinger with black jeans and black tanktop with a small scorpion.

A: The outside of the ring is going to look just the way it look now and that will not change because the game is Finished. Hak is NOT in the game. As far as i know there is only one coutume for each wrestler and the only person who have another is Sting which is the wolfpac sting.

WCW Mayhem is a wrestling game like none other. It's a game that'll put all others to shame with more of everything: wrestlers, moves, features, you name it. EA will conquer this new wrestling territory like none other! Or at least, that's what EA will have you believe. After EA's first showing in Canada, its second at E3, we had the chance to play with the newest wrestler on the block. And from what we can tell, EA may very well have a winner on its hands.

Even though EA seems to be the last of the big publishing houses to figure out that anything having to do with wrestling sells like Cool Pops in 100 degree weather, the company is doing things right form the get-go. To start off, EA's first wrestler is going to be heavy handed with the storylines, factions, and the particular moves of each player, all of which are good things. Sporting 50 of the WCW's biggest stars, Mayhem includes Goldberg, Hollywood Hogan, Konnan, Kevin "Big Sexy" Nash, Diamond Dallas Page, Sting, and even Chris Jericho, who recently left the WCW. Of course, there will be more.


Having nabbed the WCW license from THQ for the next five years, EA will sport a phenomenal list of animations, all motion-captured from the real wrestlers, many of which will be enhanced and redone for sequels in the near future. More than 600 motion-captured animation sequences from every WCW wrestler are included in this game to provide realism and authenticity. Each wrestler also will sport his unique set of moves, signature taunts and finishing moves to boot.


What's really cool is that EA is going to pack in as much dialog as possible, so that gamers will have the full audio effects of the loud-mouthed sweaty monsters that grace our TVs every week. More than 8,000 lines of dialog from the actual WCW commentators should also accentuate the complete feel of the game. Not to mention play-by-play and color commentary by WCW broadcasters Tony Schiavone, Bobby "The Brain" Henan and Mean Gene Okerlund.


WCW Mayhem also sports a single-player mode, a create-a-player mode, and a multiplayer mode, enabling one to four players to get it on, so get your multitaps ready. Players are likely complete a full season with Career modes for the WCW belt, Cage matches, and two-on-twos.


What may hoist Mayhem to the top of the heap is the way in which the Kodiak implements the storylines. Woven into the gameplay are plots, subplots and story elements that play a large part in just who wins and who's not (just like the real thing). Over-the-top elements that convey the story and saga appear in the out-of-ring gameplay. Unlike any other games, Mayhem wrestlers can jump out of the ring, walk onto the intro stage, and then continue on into the hallways, back to the dressing rooms and locker rooms, and even into garages!


Another way that Mayhem may dominate is in the actual moves themselves. Quickness of moves and response times are of the utmost importance to the honchos at EA. "From a playability standpoint, we've been disappointed in the slowness in which moves are pulled off in other wrestling games," said Producer Steve Rechtschaffer. "We're speeding up the moves and are trying to make the games more lifelike."


With the 600 motion-captured scenes, (300 less than the company originally it had), Mayhem also has included as many as 60 celebrity wrestlers for motion captioning, and has on contract as many as 130 WCW wrestlers. Not to confuse the point, but the latest number of actual wrestlers EA claims are in the game is 50, according to EA's last press releases. EA made a big point that with its refined motion capture process, wrestlers will appear just like in real life in height, girth, and shape. The company had to create several new mo-cap suits from scratch for big-bellied fellas such as Bam-Bam Bigelow. So, yes, they will look like their real-life counterparts, but in actuality, they're kinda squashed looking. Sort of like super strong dwarves.


Mayhem producer Chuck Osieja explained it this way: "It's been our focus to use different size wrestlers and to improve the collision detection. It takes a little bit of work and testing and we've been working on it since day one. So, when you play the game, not all of the wrestlers will look, play, or appear the same in size or in playability."


The few other significant aspects include lots of personalized intros just like on TV, facial expressions, such as those seen in Triple Play and NBA Live, and an interesting substitution for voice talent. What will that be? We'll have more for you next week, as we unravel our E3 impressions.
