But they do a current year HOF DLC. Does the WWe pick the HOF that early in advance?
I'm pretty sure with Sting and Ultimate Warrior they knew ahead of time. I think those are the most notable examples of the upcoming Hall Of Famers being in the game.
The DLCs have now been announced too. Future Stars Pack - Austin Aries, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Mojo Rawley, Tye Dillinger.
Legends Pack - Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, Eddie Guerrero, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, Sycho Sid, Tatanka
There's also a Hall of Fame Showcase DLC that allows you to wrestle matches as The Fabulous Freebirds, Ivory, Jacqueline, Papa Shango and the Godfather. I don't remember from last year's games if those are also characters you get, or if you can just play the matches.
- Mostly the same game as ever, as ever. - For something that's mostly a rerun, how is this game so buggy?! Amazingly glitchy, and that's after an 11GB day-one patch. Bring on more. - $40 (CDN) for the season pass?! I have store credit and may still wait until there's a sale. - Slower-paced than past games, which is neither good nor bad. - There's a new mini-game for unhooking the briefcase in a ladder match. A nice touch. Presumably Jack Swagger is very bad at it. - The game was a gift from my dad and stupid Amazon never sent him the pre-order code for Goldberg. This sounds like a common issue. I won't likely make him pester them for it. - No story mode this year. Disappointing but I'd only ever play through it once anyway. - The new system for unlockables is good. Play any mode you want, any way you want. Get credits. Use them to unlock whatever you want. Belts, arenas, wrestlers, you pick. - First downloaded CAWS: Doink, Rhyno, James Ellsworth. Didn't get Harambe yet but there's one there near the top of the Most Downloaded list.
Belated review of the game: meh. I asked for it for Christmas and got it, but got the gimped up PS3 version because, well, that's as far as I've made it in modern gaming systems (minus the Wii U, which doesn't get WWE stuff or anything at all).
Man is it gimped up. Besides sluggish moments, especially during the New Day entrances, the commentary is bad. Michael Cole will say, "King, tell me about Cesaro." And then King will say nothing for 30 seconds and then they'll move on to something else (or King will start telling a five minute retelling of the other guy's career). I like to think of it as Cole asking for bedtime stories and getting none.
I've had maybe two online matches mostly because it can NEVER FIND MATCHES. Maybe everybody else moved on to the PS4/XBox One versions and I'm alone trying to battle online. Maybe I need friends besides my daughter who is always Bayley and always wins because I let her.
Hopefully we'll get a Switch version next year that isn't gimped up like these last gen versions, because that's about the only way I'm buying next year. I knew what I was getting myself into from Amazon reviews, but I didn't expect it to be this bad.
Monday, March 22 - Texas In July: Hook, Line, and Sinner (80 pts) That's it for today. But I am super delighted that two Tragically Hip Songs (Blow At High Dough and New Orleans Is Sinking) are in the works. This thing will bankrupt me yet.
