Sunday Link-Off: Wrestling with Technology

rachelle-goulding-lavieenrose13-03Well, another year of E3 has come and gone and now I have to put together a week’s worth of blog posts without all the great content that E3 affords. If you were following E3 over at et geekera, we had 17 posts with E3 news and analysis and a total a record-high 27 posts on the blog last week. I think we’ll have at least one game review this week and a second one if I have time, along with a recap of this week’s IndyCar race and news.

But first, let’s start today’s set of links with Canadian model Rachelle Goulding.

The WWE is planning to make a racing game. If they make it a karting game, it wouldn’t be too hard to re-cast the “superstars” into Mario Kart. (With Leather)

Did you know that the WWE employs a team of designers to create the looks of your favourite wrestlers? While it might look like they find a design they like, there’s a process involved in giving them their look. (WWE)
