Noticed today that SmackDown 2009 has another DLC package again and after looking into it, I have to ask.......why? You'll see why.
The first person to appear on this thing is......Vader. Yes, Big Van Vader. The Man They Call Vader. The Mastadon Vader. Followed by The Bushwackers, Earthquake (in his Natural Disasters attire) and Doink The Clown. Now, why am I scratching my head at this? Wouldn't they be better off on Legends of WrestleMania instead? It's cool that they're in, yes cause I prefer a real Vader model over a CAW model, though with the lack of legends of it, why bring them in? In any event, I'm sure someone on here is downloading this DLC pack as I type, so let me know how these guys wrestle in the ring. And their finishers, especially Vader's.
Now to the beef of this short blog (hopefully). Apparently, a 9-year old boy died when jumping off the roof of Albany Homes with a plastic bag attached to him as if it were a homemade parachute. At first I was like, okay, then the ignorance kicked in: the death was blamed on the boy imitating Jeff Hardy's (his favorite wrestler mind you) finisher: The Swanton Bomb, after playing SmackDown 2009. Great, another death about to be blamed on video games AND WRESTLING.
The one thing that boggles me is the parachute part. During my times as a wrestling fan, I did many Randyy Savage flying elbows....off my bed....onto the soft mattress below, laugh it off and go again. Plus I didn't need a parachute. Another forum I go to, some of them there believe it was Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas he was playing, cause the main character usually does that. And this is what a spokesperson for the WWE had to say:
In any event, prepare for yet another media ambush on wrestling......AGAIN. And by the time you read this, I'm probably unlocking stuff on SmackDown 2009. Yes my PS3 is here. Later.
