Huh. 3 real top guys in WWE, a top guy on the indies... and Ziggler.

this glorious monument


I'm not sure what the weirdest part of that card is:
Was it the WHT title match between The Miz and Goldust?
Was it that said match got a goddamn A despite neither guy being one of the top 5 guys in the company?
Or was it that the match played second fiddle to a 6 man match involving Moose and Cheeseburger?

WWE 2K16 is $14.99 in the Steam summer sale. It seems like it's optimized a lot better than 2k15 was.

I'm enjoying it and its vastly improved mechanics from 2K14, the last one I got, but there's a distinct lack of create-a-parts. What is there is really good, but they skimped in a couple of areas that will probably limit the far end of replayability unless there are some mods I'm unaware of.

Amazon also price matched it.

For somebody that owns it, can you swap out wrestlers' entrance music with your own? Because Big Boss Man not having Hard Time is a deal breaker.

Only on the pc version, and only through mods. The song replacer is pretty easy to use, but it only replaces rather than adds songs.

They, of course, removed some parts that were in last years game for no apparent reason. I won't be surprised if they bring some of them back for 2k17 and say that they're new.

I haven't had a chance to test them yet, but here's a link to to the thread where people are porting over characters, movesets, entrances, and titantrons from 2k15: http://smacktalks.org/forums/topic/...k15-mods-added/

Also when I tried playing it with a friend, the "realistic" mechanics actually made it an annoying experience. 2K14 is still a good party game, 2K16 with friends feels like you are stuck in a glue pit together.

Again, I think it's down to what you want. If you're wanting WWE All-Stars, just without the goofy proportions, you'll be disappointed. If you want to have most matches look like a random 3 star Raw main event, then the game does a decent enough job.

Sodomy Hussein

Yeah it's OK though if a game wants to play like a video game instead of deliver me WWE booking no matter what character I choose. Focusing body parts doesn't even seem to matter.

Also the match options all went away and it crashes when I load an elimination chamber. So that's cool.

If I want to play wrestling games with friends, I would probably drag out my old N64 and play some AKI games. Nothing has even come close in the years since that is anywhere near as fun to play.

My N64 plays better than either my old X-box or my old ps2. Great game though, as well as it's sequel. I wish the Def Jam games had more in depth character creation though.

This seems to be a common occurrence in real-world data sets, the Lucha Underground title goes to either Chavo, PJ Black, or Johnny Mundo. It's a symptom of either their stats not being changed since they worked for WWE, or the mod-maker having the mindset of anyone who has worked for WWE is automatically more popular than anyone that hasn't.

Was that the same stream that had that amazing Royal Rumble where Kurt Angle Kirk Angel almost made it all the way to the end despite losing all his limbs?

Nah, that was the Royaliest of Rumbles. The last Fighting Back stream did have them & Vince Russo playing as Russo in Backstage Assault.

Ouch. I haven't had a double injury match like that yet. I did have Jack Evans go and retire on me just because he ruptured his liver in his 2nd match back from a torn PCL.

Anybody mod WWE 2K16 on the PC? I'm gonna mess with it later ($15, eh, fine). I'm curious if when you inject new wrestlers into the game if it actually adds new characters or if it replaces characters in the game.

I still haven't bothered with it yet because I don't want to pay the tax and cheat engine is going to be a much bigger hassle, but supposedly there's a way to add them as dlc characters so they don't take up slots.

e: Well, I tried the cheat engine method and it corrupted my save file. When I pasted my backup save in the folder, it said that was corrupt too so idk. I'll try to get it figured out in the next couple of days. Definitely want to do that before I create or download anymore CAWs.

I went the Custom Characters route and spent a good 4 hours trying to figure stuff out. Got AJ Styles in the game, but couldn't get custom music to work or mini or wall trons and now the game won't make it past the splash screen.

Why can't there just be one MEGA save I can download and copy and paste over my 2K16 folder?

Try deleting the pac files you added to the folder. That made it stop crashing at the splash screen for me.

If it's crashing at the splash screen it means something didn't work and you're going to have to start over, though.

Gotcha. I'll be glad when I get this mod stuff down, there's some cool stuff out there. And it seems like drat near every wrestler you can think of has been modded in. Cool part being that they are new characters. So hypothetically, you could build drat near like a Fire Pro like roster.

Honestly, I do like 2K16. It just killed me when it corrupted my save I worked on for a long time on Xbone.
