Given how many dudes are on the roster proper, who wants to guess what the really unsubtly named CAW generic movesets will be now? Tanahashi's been a staple for years, but I assume Okada's gonna be in now because Roddy and Angle free up some slots.

quote:

It appears the objective was to build on the rather limited options from WWE 2K17. 2K has upgraded the Story Progression, added free roaming to backstage areas, updated the promo engine and MyCareer Invasion feature.

Backstage elements didn't exist in WWE 2K17. This approach hearkens back to older WWE video games like Smackdown Vs. Raw 2009 and others that featured more backstage drama. In this year's game, you'll be able to choose between two different paths: Company Man or Fan Favorite.


A company man is essentially a heel. Here's how it is described on the WWE 2K website:

quote:

This involves conspiring with the GMs backstage, ambushing other WWE Superstars in the locker room or during their interviews and basically doing whatever it takes to maintain that GM’s power, both in the ring and backstage. The rewards are hefty, though! Continue helping the GM succeed, and you’ll gain access to awesome upgrades, such as the ability to orchestrate a run-in to help you win a match. You can also access Vince McMahon’s office to lobby for match card changes and title rematches.

quote:

In today's WWE, a fan favorite is a rebel who wins over the crowd with defiant promos and an edgy character. Here's how that persona is broken down:

quote:

Being a Fan Favorite means you don’t play the whole company game and you’re all about putting on the best matches and promos. You have a locker room full of WWE Superstars and Legends backstage. This route involves earning their respect by taking on different match types – night-in and night-out. You’ll also have WWE Superstars test your in-ring aptitude and skills on the microphone, but if you succeed at this, you will earn the whole locker room’s respect – and with that comes some perks. WWE Legends are always backstage during events. If you earn their respect, they’ll start to give you in-ring bonuses for your matches and promos. If you become the complete package – the guy who can walk the walk and talk the talk like Stone Cold Steve Austin or John Cena – you’ll be able to have your own customized WWE Championship or Universal Championship. This honor is only given to the best of the best.

New patch is out.

Spike Chunsoft posted:

Version 0.9008 was published today.
Please refer to the patch notes below.
We have been watching the forums and are working to address the issues reported.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to make improvements through Early Access.

Offline Mode
  • Fixed bug where incorrect move name would display on match results screen when match was won with Okite Yaburi.
  • Wrestler Select Screen: You can now move the cursor without waiting for the wrestlers to load.
  • Exhibition Match: Fixed bug where you could use the mouse to select wrestlers that were otherwise unselectable.
  • Wrestler Select Screen: Fixed bug where, when selecting a wrestler with the mouse after scrolling the menu, the wrong wrestler would be selected.
  • Timed Battle Royal: Entrance Settings > Time settings now saves even when you move between menus.
  • Mission Mode: With the cursor over the [Return] button, pressing up/down now returns you to the Mission List menu.
  • Mission Mode: Made text boxes easier to read.
  • While playing in Windowed Mode, fixed the mouse so it will only respond when the application is the active window.
  • Added [Cache] option.
    This caches the Wrestler Select menu graphics for your entire collection of wrestlers and speeds up the Wrestler Select menu.
    To create a cache, turn the option ON and restart the application.
    *Each wrestler requires around 20MB of memory so please make sure you have enough available disk space.

Edit Mode
  • Fixed bug where full wrestler name would not display properly.
  • Can now press LB(L1)/RB(R1) to rotate the item in the Part Preview window.
  • Added full body preview button in place of the pull-down menu.
  • Changed the Highlights button size/text.
  • Can now toggle through highlight settings in place of the pull-down menu.
  • Changed base color of parts displayed in the Layer list.
  • Part selection cursor set to hidden when using Filter window.
  • Moveset Edit: Fixed moves that were not displaying properly.
  • [Back Grapple](MED) Back Tackle > Changed category from “Rough” to “Position Change.”
  • Skill Menu: Can now use left/right buttons to move between screens.
  • When selecting an edit wrestler/referee to load, it now displays their full profile instead of a thumbnail.
  • CPU Logic Menu: Fixed bug that would move the cursor back to the left-hand window if you pressed cancel while entering a percentage.
  • Fixed bug that prevented you from saving an edit wrestler if you had too many wrestlers assigned to “Retire.”
  • Increased font size of wrestler name.
  • Changed position of Nickname window.
  • Belt Edit: Fixed bug that hid belt information behind the belt preview when saving.
  • Team Edit: On the wrestler select screen, organizations without any assigned wrestlers will be moved to the end of the rotation.
  • Team Edit: Fixed bug where if you reorder a wrestler, then cancel before confirming, the wrestler would be moved regardless.

Online Mode
  • Changed graphics for pull-down menu/chat window.

Matches
  • Adjusted time that a wrestler stays down after being hit by a [Jump from Post] move.
  • CPU logic: [Jump from Post > Lrg Dmg] moves were not occurring as frequently as intended so parameters have been adjusted so these moves are used more often.
  • Adjusted timing for [Run up Turnbuckle] moves
  • Fixed bug where wrestlers would swap position with certain return moves (such as Lightning Speed).

Wrestler Data
  • Fixed CPU logic bug for default wrestler Caroline Collins where [Opp Down – Face down] > [Opp. Condition Critical] was set to over 100%


Moves
  • Added [Running > Turning Arm Breaker B]
  • Added [Front Grapple (BIG) > Backflip Driver
  • Added [Front Avalanche Setup Counter > Top Rope Canadian Destroyer]

Edit Parts
  • Added Face 688-697, Part 688-697.

First 100% actually playing the drat game. Hit Shibata with springboard moves, corner moves, three finishers and he would not stay down.

Weird thing on FPW with the new patch- now the opponent in all the mission matches is the generic starting CAW. They still have the moveset and such of whoever you're supposed to be fighting, and that person appears in the match result screen, etc., it's just the graphics got swapped.

But yeah wrestler selection is much much faster now.

That awkward moment when you get shot by your wife, in front of your wife, who then proceeds to try to kill your wife, while your best friend is off to the side pregnant, with your wife.

Ugh, the animations just look off. Everything is slow and stilted. Nothing feels like it has any impact. And it just looks wrong, like when the guy gets dropped onto the turnbuckle everything seems a few inches in the wrong spot. It's hard to put into words. It's a video game guys, no one's gonna get hurt - make that poo poo look like they're being dropped at maximum velocity.

I especially noticed it in one of the powerbombs. The character just kind of floats up and rotates instead of looking like they're lifted.

There isn't necessarily anything wrong with using mocap, but you have to be willing to clean it up more. One of the things that pissed me off about SvR '07, for example, was that 75% of the moves no longer looked like they had any force or power to them. It felt like they didn't do any refining of the initial motion captures beyond making sure it was smooth over making sure it looked good. Unfortunately it seems like the same mistake is being repeated again, and again, and again.

The other problem is that at this point we'd have to get a completely new engine for them to be willing to abandon their massive library of motion-captured moves and even then I'm sure they'd still keep trying to use them, as they had in the past.
