    Seems a good time to start this, with the cover star set to be announced as AJ Styles, according to Ryan Satin. He also says the DLC pre-order bonus is going to be Ronda Rousey. Great choice for the cover in my opinion, but it’s ridiculous that Rousey isn’t included in the game outright.

    Possible that Ronda hadn't signed with the company when the game was being made, hence her not being in the game outright.

    Nah just WWE trying to milk as much cash out of it as possible


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,721 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    Think back to 5/6 years ago when Styles was still Mr. TNA, and was sort of mostly coasting for his last couple years and not making massive waves

    Imagine saying then that in a few years that he would become one of the top guys and the cover for their game

    I love this timeline for Styles

    That TNA game was alot more fun to play matches then the current stuff 2k put out

    I am hoping this game will be fun to play and we get a proper season or story mode with an active wrestler or legend but I amnt holding my breath!

    Fire Pro Wrestling World, with NJPW content, is releasing on 28th August.

    Think i'll be passing up 2K19 in favour of this


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,786 ✭✭✭Sirsok


    Just bought TEW 2016 as was big fan og extreme warfare, bit hard to get used to, but should be fun once I get stuck in....

    Was literally just coming in here to post this , FPW games are always amazing for someone who can get lost in the psychology of the match , Lets hope the creation suit is as good on console as it has been for the steam community

    WWE 2k19 is out on October 9th on standard editions. If you order the collectors or deluxe edition would get it 4 days early on the 5th.

    AJ styles is as expected the cover star.

    So, some details have been released.

    They are gonna have a new mode in the game called Towers. Suppose it'd be a bit like the MK towers. The towers are all uniquely themed. However, if you look along the bottom of the screenshot, you'll see Loot Pack Store.... Yup, Microtransactions are here. Thanks 2K, definitely not buying this year now!

    Will be the same as the last 3 games.
    Just add DLC to 2k16....boom done.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    So we got "treated" to a couple screenshots of the new game yesterday. Same old shyte
    pszq4adqjre11.jpg

    2k have a habit of releasing screens that look nothing like the game itself. Now, there will be fan boys online pouring over the above images (I've already seen someone say "look at those kneepads :)). However, remember this screen from last year

    1x4q5h4e1re11.jpg


    I fired up WWE 13 last night for the Craic. I think this was THQ'S last game for WWE. It's actually fun, gameplay wise. It's not the slow, lumbering game that 2k are putting out. Reversals are ridiculous. The window for reversals is a lot more forgiving. But you can easily have a match with reversal into reversal. Very entertaining. I forgot catch finishers were in this game. Jumped off the top as HBK in a tag with HHH, VS Taker & Mankind (Attitude era mode). Caught and into a Tombstone. Popped me! Sure, the graphics aren't all there, but when the gameplay is right, I don't care.

    Even moving around the ring is easier.

    I had been tempted to get this, but seeing as Microtransactions are going to be in the game, I'm definitely passing.

    As for the Microtransactions/Loot Pack, and the controversy that followed due to the Star Battlefront II (I think it was that) and this probably shows off how old I am, but whatever happened to the days of sinking hours into a game and unlocking whatever needed unlocking?

    Exactly brother. And what's worse is, with 2k, a lot of the stuff is "on disc" already, yet they expect you to pay extra to unlock it.

    Long gone are the days you got a game, put it in, and the whole experience was there. The full story, no dlc additions, and the developers had to have it right and launch, meaning no patches.

    Its less than 2 months out from launch for this game here, and all that's been given is 2 screens and that tower crap.

    Apparently however, 2k are sinking significant funding into the WWE IP, so 2k20 may be worth holding out for. They need a new engine. Badly. The animations used date back to Smackdown 1 ffs

    Fools and their money will be easily parted for extra content.

    I miss those days to be honest, now it's how much can we charge for this, and how can we screw people for more money.

    Haven't bought a WWE game in a decade, fell out of love with wrestling games around Smackdown Vs RAW 2009, and based on the above and previous games, nothing has changed.

    So, they're bringing back Showcase mode, featuring Daniel Bryan. Features are:

    * 12 unique matches, including 11 historic bouts from Bryan's career and one surprise battle
    * Nine historic arenas that featured prominently in Bryan's career, including the venues for WrestleMania XXX and Velocity
    * 11 different playable character models for Daniel Bryan, with each one featuring their own move sets and unique appearances
    * New entrances and victory scenes, including a special surprise when Bryan competes with Kane as part of Team Hell No

    Ugh. 11 different character models? FFS. That means just like having 6 models of Sting, and 5 of HHH, there will now be 11 models of D.Bry

    I think most would prefer if they focused on getting just 1 character model looking well

    DB in the WM30 image looks absolutely terrible, these graphics are no better than was on SD vs Raw on PS2 over 12 years ago

    Aye, and the Mania 30 arena looks about as big as The Point

    Yeah granted it's not complete yet, but it won't change between now and release.

    As for the commentary, its just more of the same. Having Graves and Saxton calling over Bryans early matches is just nonsense.

    do these games still do well? are we every going to get a reboot and enjoyable game?
    I miss the days of getting a very new feeling enjoyable game every year and going into the (now scrapped) story mode.
    had every game up until last year and now not even interested in this

    Apparently, 2K are gonna pump money into the WWE series from next year. That to me tells me to give this years one a miss.

    They need a new engine. And for the love of God, get rid of Yukes once and for
    all.

    Jesus that's BRUTAL.

    Pete Dunne & Tyler Bate have been announced, complete with entrances. Dunne looks the part. Bate looks like a CAW that Stevie Wonder might put together.

    F you 2K & Yukes

    Tyler looks like KO's younger brother. Still, seems a good sign for their long term career prospects in WWE.

    WWE 2K the roman reigns of wrestling games, I'll buying Fire Pro anyway for certain , cheaper too


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    For anyone looking for an alternative, Fire Pro Wrestling World is out in the US today, at $49.99. It's ridiculously easy to set up a US account on the PSN.

    The Deluxe version, at $89.99 includes a mode that's similar to GM Mode on the old WWE games
