Fallout New Vegas DLC "Dead Money" came out today too. Back to the wastelands for me!

We'll see how this goes. Increased level cap by 5. That's a good start for my level 30!

Smackdown vs. RAW 2011 DLC Pack 2 also came out on 12/21. Free if you bought Fan Axxess or 800 Microsoft points.

You get:

Wade Barrett (Nexus)
David Otunga (Nexus)
Justin Gabriel (Nexus)
Layla
Lex Luger (From Atlanta GA, Made in the USA attire, "I'll Be Your Hero" theme music from Lex Express video)
The British Bulldog (long tights, hair braided, ugly sounding offshoot of "Rule, Britainia")
Alternate Shad Attire
NXT Arena (with "Wild And Young", but not quite the version of it you expect, and also the alternate NXT theme, "If I Can Get Through This", and with NXT Titan Tron, which is just the NXT Logo on the screen (why?).

And now, the various issues and problems with it:

Even though the option is there to download the entire pack in one download, it doesn't work for some reason. You have to download each component individually and then reboot your whole system.

No Nexus Titan Tron video? No Nexus T-shirts?

Luger and Bulldog are listed as WWE Legends, Layla is a Smackdown Diva, but the Nexus members are listed as Free Agents.

The Allied Powers are kind of a mess. No Allied Powers entrance mashup music? Damn it! Luger's entrance music is all wrong - "I'll Be Your Hero"? He never came to the ring with that. And it's the whole song, which has a very slow beginning, so you barely hear any of the song at all before the ring entrance is over. Bulldog's version of the British National Anthem is also weird and wrong.

I just don't understand who makes these decisions or monitors quality control.

However, forming the Allied Powers as a team, I recommend fixing their entrance so that they come out to Bulldog's music, Luger's Titan Tron, and Team Entrance 10, which has them coming into the arena in an army Jeep, with Bulldog driving and Luger waving the American flag. It works best from all of the entrances in the game.

As for the Nexus' entrance, have them come into the ring using the Legacy entrance for a Trio with Wade as the first man in the team. Wade is in the middle, and when they hit the ring, Wade stands in the center ring while Gabriel and Otunga hit the corners and pose. It's as perfect as this game will allow.

Also, the Nexus theme isn't the right version of the song.

Lex Luger's arms are about six inches too short. Throwback HBK doesn't even have his tattoo or entrance gear. Its a seriously shitty DLC pack.

Wow, who wouldn't JUMP at the chance to play as "A-List" David Otunga? Anyone purchase this? I'm wondering how low they rated him. And does he nearly botch his finisher half the time? Here's hoping Skip Sheffield gets healthy and gets put in.

I'd like to see them release the set for WCW Monday Nitro in one of the SmackDown vs. RAW games sometime. (The 1997-era one, with the giant letters). They've got the WCW "Classic" World Title and the ability to assign wrestlers to WCW, after all.

There's a WCW arena coming as DLC early in 2011. No idea what it looks like, though.

Well, that's what happens when you have to set your roster (and your DLC) a kajillion years in advance.
