Exclusive Gameplay footage and interview. Gouki.com wanted to tell THQ everything about what we do with SmackDown VS Raw 2011. We've got a helluva story to tell from inside the THQ booth at E3 2011 with Dev Talk about WWE '12.
Anybody that has checked out Gouki.com certainly knows we are big fans of SmackDown VS Raw and just huge wrestling fans over all. We've successfully recreated each WWE Pay-Per-View since Survivor Series 2010 with WWE SmackDown VS Raw 2011. We have simulated over 60 matches, something we refer to as the Madden Bowl of wrestling. We film the matches before the PPV and both wrestlers are AI controlled. We have downloaded, created and edited over 100 Superstars and Divas in the game.
We know what want in WWE '12 to make that aspect of the game for us even more enjoyable. Personally I say, watching the simulated matches are sometimes just as good as watching the actual live match.
Here's what happened. I had just finished my Konami "Booth Tour" with some Canadian chick with a bunch of FAQ sheets. More on that in another story. I believe BatRastered and FnJimmy we finishing up watching Aliens. I stormed the THQ booth looking to meet people I knew actually did shit there. Neal Pabon, I talked to that guy, what up to him. The press/media counter don't give a shit about nobody without an appointment. There were no goodies and the lady gave me a business card with an FTP for their media kit, when I had just saw her hand some Jimmy the full on disc version press kit.
I stumbled back over to the WWE '12 wall to see if BatRastered and FnJimmy had arrived yet. I took a drink out the flask while less people were looking and just started to play WWE '12. The first guy that came up to me didn't seem to know much of the game. When I told him what we did with it, he didn't seem to understand or maybe he didn't care. I fucked off and tried to talk to more Jimmys in suits. I couldn't find the nuab who I suspect does the Twitter account. He's given me a few shout outs and I just wanted to say thanks. No success.
Back to the WWE '12 section where I scouted out the other possible dev working the section. At E3 you really have to dig deep and ask questions, most of the time you could just be playing with a random PR guy hired that week to demo a product for you based on a script. I definitely did not want that to happen with WWE'12, I wanted to talk to somebody seriously and share my experiences with the game and offer 1 or 2 of my 100 plus suggestions. That's when I met Jason Vandiver, his business card is official and it says Designer on it.
Jason knew what was up with the game and understood what we did with it. [Spoiler Alert] I may say things that I wasn't supposed to talk about. I hope Jason doesn't get in trouble. [/Spoiler Alert]
Jason told me that there would be 2 new create a "Something." I know, not much to go on. SDvR2011 already has a lot of create a "something." FnJimmy says it could be the create a belt. I disagree, I believe one will be something like create a show. My thought is I would love to just program 6-7 matches in a row and then just watch them as the AI played it out. You can kinda set that up now, but an easier way is needed. Create a backstage promo or something, I don't know man, the game does a lot already.
Then we played a match, I chose Albero Del Rio and he drove out on stage in a fancy car. Just like the Eddie Guerrero intro FnJimmy has attached to him in our simulations. It all looked great. Jason chose Randy Orton. I don't know how to play the game and I don't know if he thought I was full of shit at this point, but I had no clue what to do with the actual controller. I just watch this game. So he beat the shit out of me and showed me one of the coolest new features.
Super wake ups. A super wake up for example is when your oppenet is on the ground, but needs to be standing for you to do your finisher. Jason leans forward and shouts "Watch this!" The game cuts away into a taunt animation and Randy Orton slams to the ground and throws his little temper tantrum. AlBerto Del Rio who is still knocked out cold in the center of the ring, shoots to his feet and Randy Orton stands up and RKO's him. Awesome. Very smooth, going to make the end of matches way more exciting.
Jason wasn't done, he picks Alberto Del Rio up again and starts beating on him and building his super bar again. This time he showed me Randy Orton's punt. I said "Something that I'd like to see is that when you select end a match with a finisher that the AI still pins, like in WWE All Stars." Jason said not to worry that was added.
BatRastered and FnJimmy finally had arrived. I pulled FnJimmy to the side and had him play the game while I filmed this off screen footage. Now THQ probably don't want me to play this, but I don't have any other gameplay footage. Both press kits I checked only had the live action Randy Orton trailer. You can see Vintage SDvR2011 AI in this clip where Randy Orton sets up Alberto Del Rio for an announcer table smash, but the Randy Orton can't grab on to do the move and, you know what, I'm not even sure which one FnJimmy was controlling. Just watch the clip.
You can hear the guy at the end of the video offer me some HD footage on a disc, it wasn't there sorry brotha. Send me some and I want another interview. Thanks.
After that part we busted out the official Gouki.com microphone and FnJimmy did his first ever official interview. With himself. Check it out.
We wrapped it up and got four amazing contacts. We love this game franchise, SDvR series is a game that makes sense to come out every year.
Thanks to Jason

Thanks to Neal Pabon and thanks to everybody at THQ.

This is now the 6th PPV we've recreated with WWE SmackDown VS Raw 2011 the videogame. This is also the most accurate we have ever been. All of the matches are in HD. For the first time ever we have every match from the PPV, unless they slide one in on us during the actual event. We hope you enjoy, some of these matches are better than real life.
All of the matches have been recreated as accurately as possible. Not all match types were available in WWE SmackDown VS Raw, such as A Country Whipping Match and we also could not put a vacant championship up for the Del Rio VS Christian match, so we gave the belt to Del Rio.Read full story...

Featuring all the matches from the PPV as of 9/15/2011. Exclusive custom Air Boom Titantron and intro. Exclusive Alex Riley CAWs and intro. CM Punk VS Triple H & John Cena VS Alberto Del Rio for the WWE Championship. Unprecedented match order!
This was a very simple PPV to simulate. All of the titles are on the line(No IC match at the time of this article.) There is no title on the line for the CM Punk VS Triple H match, but that's just a no DQ and that was easy as well. Yes that is a custom CM Punk intro with his new music and static bursts. Lets get to the card shall we. As always I put the matches in order that I think they will go on the actual Night of Champions PPV.
Tag Team Championship Air Boom VS The Miz & R-Truth. I superimposed that Titantron in there for Air Boom, but you can only see it for a few seconds, so you have to pay attention. Shout to WWE's YouTube channel for posting the Titantron the same day I was editing these videos. R-Truth & The Miz's intro; I captured the "You can't handle the truth" right off the TV. Then I just added The Miz's music right after, similar to Air Boom's style. FYI SDvR2011 does not have the new tag belts, I already know.
