Yeesh. Could you find a more bored Kevin Nash photo to run in your advertisement, THQ?
This thing just dropped an insane nostalgia bomb in my brain. I remember spending afternoons laying on the couch trying to beat it with every character (though Ultimo Dragon was my favorite), putting on the copy of Sam Kinison’s Live From Hell I bought from CD Switch because eventually I was just gong on autopilot, and one particularly frustrating match against my friend Edward, who was aware of the center-stick kickout trick when I wasn’t.
This game (along with its descendants, WrestleMania 2000 and No Mercy) were the defining games of the N64 era of my life, as much as DuckTales when I was in 4th grade, sick days with Mario 3 and dragging my PS2 with me on vacation so I could play Grand Theft Auto 3.
But yeah, is that Nash’s driver’s license photo or what? Actually, I hope that is his license photo, because that would mean he wore his wrestling gear to the DMV.
Fa fa fa fa LIFE.
