According to my podcast co-host, the only characters actually part of the videos that are in the game are Big Bartholomew, The Banker, and the Sea Creature.

Hard pass (and this was the only DLC I gave a fuck about when they announced DLC).

Fire Pro World's new story mode DLC (sequel to the story mode in SFPW Special, once again written by SUDA51) is out! It's free if you purchased the season pass.

..also this dude from Twitter has created a nice recap of the original story for those who've never experienced it:

Another indie wrestling game seems to be in the works

I love that were in a "new boom era" for independent wrestling videogames.

I stumbled upon Anthony Greene, then a few other guys I am not too familiar with after I posted. Looks like this company right now has been pushing a recently released game that looks like Quidditch from Harry Potter.

They also make Ark, which is pretty popular with streamers, and Citadel: Forged With Fire. They've been solid overall with their games but clearly favor RPG/survival themes so a wrestling game is a bit outside the wheelhouse.

Rumors starting up that 2K21 is cancelled but a different WWE game may come out

Same place I read the rumor isn’t sure the source is entirely credible but given how rough last year was and current state of the world, wouldn’t be surprised

All Stars 2 or partnering up with NetherRealm to do a console version of Immortals would be the best case scenario



So get ready for Crush Hour 2

I would love an All Stars 2. It boggles my mind that we never got a second one. Even something strange like a sequel to Legends of Wrestlemania would be a nice change of pace.

So to anyone who was wondering what's going on with TEW20, it currently still in beta due to a number of bugs that cropped up in the open beta and skin reworking that's been going on. Should be released on the 14th still, but... Well, the artist who's reworking the skins might need a little more time so might be delayed to next week.

Anyways, reason I bring it up is because if you haven't tried TEW20, you might want to. Game doesn't play exactly the same as TEW16, so you might check it out.

It has been pretty fun checking out over the last while.

Also, final additions to the release roster:

The TEW2020 interface is the most non-user friendly thing I've ever seen. I hope something comes along to make it at least intuitive, but holy shit. Forcing myself to get the hang out of it, just for the sake of the iffy 1997 mod (where Nash is in jail for second degree murder).

you can usually turn commentary or at least sound off though. that's what i do and just listen to music or podcasts when i play video games.

I'm already weary of the in game currency needed to unlock additional items, especially since extra currency is being used as a preorder incentive for the more expensive version. Hopefully this game isn't a microtransaction filled shitfest

I'm hesitant, for two main reasons.

1. If this is an announcement of an official AEW game, I could see the game being over-the-top in ways that would probably take me out of it (similar to the product).
2. I have a gut feeling that it's actually an announcement for a series of streams by AEW talent instead.
