Anyway, IGN posted more details on how the gameplay works today

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/08...m_medium=social

Seems more simulation than being able to start the match with a running clothesline which we all probably are use to doing.

Man this sounds great, I'm super up for a more sim type WWE game.

Because the publisher doesn't have confidence in their product. That is, nine times out of ten, why a game is barely shown off this close to release. When pre-order incentives are announced before even the first screen shots were put out, that is a huge, flashing warning sign that the publisher thinks actually showing the game in motion is not the best way to sell the product.

Also, one of the earlier games had the opening tie-up stuff, too, and it royally sucked. Same with the stamina systm, obviously; even in WWE2k14 they had the stamina system, but it was left off by default because they knew it was so hated every other year.


Again, I'm not saying there is no chance of the game being good, but adjust your expectations, people, because so far all signs point to a bad game.

This sounds like more of the same crap they tried on every other Smackdown vs Raw game released in the mid to late 2000s. They try to reinvent the wheel every other year and introduce minigames and quicktime events for everything. Between this news and the fact that we are 2 months out from release date with no actual action footage shown, I'm thinking it will be a big transition year.

So they said you'll be starting off with this chain wrestling and literally the first thing the guy does is a running grapple powerslam. When they do get to the chain grappling it's really just the same QTE bollocks they tried in an earlier game.

I appreciate having a HUD and obviously it does look nicer, but wow is this basically the same old game.

Same, but I never had a problem with the animations. It's more like I know the fact they haven't updated them and it looks like a better version of the THQ games means my hopes and dreams of an entrance creator that doesn't ultimately suck just got dashed.

First thing I noticed was how when Orton threw Cesaro out of the ring, there's two identical ladies wearing the same sweatshirt in the front row.

I'm not surprised. As long as they have to devote resources to the legacy systems and deal with an engine that's had a decade of lovely code layered on top of it, we aren't going to see real improvement outside of the look.

.I think that whole "lockup" thing is only going to happen when two players attempt to grapple one another at the same time. Kind of like a more advance version of the one that we have on 2k14. Which if it is, I'm glad. Having to do that thing at the beginning of every match would get really tiresome, really quickly. What if I just want to do a squash?

I imagine we are still in the transitional period and hopefully 2K is getting a new engine made, I thought with all the mocap poo poo they were doing that it would mean new animations

dont even fink about it
Oct 9, 2005

The right reading for this is the one I'm giving.

The animations in 2K14 are loving terrible, but looking back on what is otherwise the best Smackdown game since Here Comes the Pain in 2003 and going "lipstick on a pig" is selling it a little short. I'll probably skip it because I don't want to shell out the bucks for a nextgen system, on which I'd be doing nothing but playing this game. It's nice that they finally got the model detail to the point that the UFC games were at in 2009, though. The long drought from about 2007-2012 where we got one step forward, two steps back every year seems to be over.

While I am keeping my prayer vigil to some day get a PC release, does anyone have video that includes commentary? Because if that hasn't improved significantly, they can expect serious complaining in this thread!

Roman Reigns

Cesaro gets the jobber entrance even in a video game.

Eh, I can see the 2k14 comparisons but it's still pretty and as long as the game doesn't play like complete rear end I'll give it a go.

A minor improvement is still an improvement, even for something that's only been in development for, what, a year?

EDIT: Also developers need to learn to show off gameplay with people that aren't lovely players.

"I'm willing to pay up to $1200 for a big anime titty"




2k14 was a huge step up that a lot of people missed. Having the AI hit you back and moving away from those awful repetitive reversal animations was big.

Some of the biggest problems with making a good wrestling game (pacing - any kind of "competitive" metagame is completely different from how real wrestling matches are, you just have to hop online and get owned by a 12 year old to figure that one out) actually seem like they aren't that easy to work through and while everyone always talks about A New Engine as if poof, it'll fix everything, I'm not really...sure.

Anyone know why AKI no longer makes wrestling games? I would love an updated version of their wrestling engine. Def Jam Fight For NY was awesome and I just want them to make another awesome game instead of another smackdown vs raw/wwe year game.

There's no longer an AKI, that's why. Though I've wondered why no one has ever bought the engine and used it as a basis for a wrestling game.
