I am drowning.
There is no sign of land.
You are coming down with me, hand in unlovable hand.

And I hope you die.

I hope we both die.

The way some people are talking, Fire Pro may not even get all the announced DLC.


That would be a drat shame. Like yeah the game's great as is but there are just enough little things that could be refined to make it even better and if they had strong sales they might be able to do that, but of course nobody's paying attention.

And while the stuff for 2k19 sounds interesting, the core game is really the problem. Without a new engine and a major rethink of the mechanics, actually playing the matches will get old quickly.

I mean yeah, that's the good and bad of it. They deserve to succeed. On the other hand, not having resources for a sequel means my CAWs will never be obsolete!


If nothing else, it's good that the final Fire Pro game won't be that awful Xbox 360 avatar thing!

yeah its a great game. Could have been better/more features out of the gate but still the best wrestling game of the decade.

If things really are dire, I hope they manage to get Fire Promoter finished at least.

It has all the dumb crutches of shovelware CYOA games (every single one of them has a reality show plot. Every single one) but whoever wrote it just really really gets whatís fun about the sports entertainment myth

The whole sequence where you win the gauntlet might be hackneyed on some levels but on other, more important levels it is just an effortlessly perfect, electrifying encapsulation of why people love this dumb fake sport

There's a sequence in Slammed where you and your rival are working a cage match and at arbitrary moments, not-Steph changes it from work to shoot fight and back again. which seems like something Russo would have at least pretended to do.

Imagine having just made like $1.5bil from TV and Saudi, yet still being too cheap to want to pay royalties

You've got to admit, you are kind of implausible

And they show Kendrick, who isn't in the game.


Question: do they still have the Superstar Threads options on the next gen version of the game, where you can change a wrestler's attire colors without it taking a CAW slot?

Sounds like some good old-fashioned Inokism.

London at least doesn't work for them any more. Otunga's still with WWE!

They didnít in 2k18, and it really sucks because they go with the blandest looks possible for default AJ and Beth Phoenix.

It might be a 2K thing and not a WWE thing. Worker contracts at WWE probably have stips these days that obviate the need for separate negotiations but 2K / THQ donít seem to automatically have all the likeness rights that WWE has.

Eg there was that year when Mick Foley sat out an iteration over payment, and Iím pretty sure he was under Legends contracts at the time. I also vaguely recall games getting names that were persona non grata with WWE those years. Otungaís not an active wrestler, that might have something to do with it.

Wouldn't Otunga still have a talent contract to do the pre-show stuff he does?

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

Might be handled over a separate contract, or be a really dumb way to keep Bryan as the focus in those scenes.

IIRC they changed the way the video games work so that it's not a massive payday for everyone appearing in the game (Lance Storm described his yearly take from being included in the games as... considerable)
