The other big omission from DLC that people will get less passionate about, just that he's been in so long is Mark Henry.

Last time Mark was not in a game was Smackdown vs. RAW 2006.

Hey, did you say you wanted to exchange your ability to create your own character in MyCareer for full voiceover? Well, wish granted.. say hello to "Buzz"...



They should've named him #SMH.

I do appreciate how it seems like they decided to just get weird with it this year, but the only enjoyment I've gotten out of the game lately is laughing at the shitty bugs.

So, in 2K19's My Career mode, you can still create your entire character - the only thing you're stuck with is a single voice (and tbh, the VO they got for it is pretty good - he's the dude who won the Rock's promo competition) and the nickname "Buzz" - outside of that there are times when it veers off into what seems like a giant blowjob for Triple H (shock), and it presents this bizarre blur between shoot and kayfabe that is just confusing at times, but all in all it's probably the best "story mode" they've done for these games.

Everything else in this game is still pretty much a mess. Bugs that have been in the game for the past 3-4 years are still there. I wonder if they even have a QA department on hand at 2K...?

lmao I got sent a free download code for 2K19. Even when I don't want to buy these anymore they still manage to pull me back in.

Anyway, I was thinking I may as well do something fun with it. I tried a bunch of times to run my "own" promotion, but it's just not fun and I get bored super fast. Who's in for a CPU simmed fantasy efed? Figure we can either draft existing wrestlers or go all out and create our own characters and see who comes out on top.

Downloaded a community creation of a certain commander in chief. Been using it as my jobber to try out stuff with my CAW.

My inability to master the kick out system is driving me bananas. I haven't played a WWE game since WWE 2012

Yeah the kickout meter can be pretty unforgiving.. I think you can adjust the window in the options though.

Thanks man. I'll check tonight.

I'm really excited to feel competent playing it so I can start career mode. Always been my favorite part of these games since N64. I usually set up a two player mode and set up a tackling dummy to practice. But since I Madden rage broke my 2nd controller I'm having to instead set up two on one handicapped matches to practice against CPU opponents. I figured out I can set 3 immediate finishers to quickly wear them down but my partner is always going for the win. Also, it blows up in my face when the AI also equally has 3 finishers and lays me out King Kong Bundy > SD Jones style.

I was playing WWE 2K18 as the Big Bossman vs Mr Perfect. I countered Perfect's signature move and hit the Bossman Slam for the pin. That's probably the best thing I've had happen in the game.

Answered previously, I'm sure, but is the PC port ever worth investigating? I love Fire Pro, but debating an alternative that already has a playable Vader.

Last I checked they were alright. The modding aspect is good however as you can mod the game with updated music and even go as far as use for example cm punk from 2k15 and patch it into this years effort.

I actually really enjoyed the majority of 2K19's career mode as well, because they just said fuck it and went full on stupid with it.   I hated the ending though

What the fuck is the point of doing a match where the focus is on a heel guest ref if your engine doesn't know how to make a ref biased?

That kind of reminds me of Wrestlemania XIX when you face Mr. McMahon in the last chapter. He's so hard to defeat and I was about to lose when Vince got himself DQ'ed for using a chair against me. Vince didn't know the rules.

Don't know if it was said, but Total Extreme Wrestling is getting a 2020 version released probably near the end of the year. It is being rebuilt from the ground up to be better situated for today's wrestling world.

This thread has all the new stuff and things that'll change for it.

Sounds like the game will be mighty improved upon 16 version.

That makes me happy. I play 2016 idly a lot, but if they're just redoing everything from the ground up, I'm in. It'll be waiting the couple months after release for all the bug fixes and mods that'll be the hardest.

Yeah, I do the same, but having the game built from the ground up is probably why it took so long from 2016 to have a new game. After all, scrapping the old engine and building a new one takes a year or two at least. Then comes the building of everything else.

BTW, since things can be imported into 2020 from 2016 still, the mods might not take as long as you would think.

Also think they need to get at least onto Steam, perhaps Switch. Gods if it was on Switch, I'd play it everyday.

Yeah the eLicense bullshit is the worst way to sell that game. I know they put one of the older ones on Steam, but for some reason aren't putting the new ones on there. Steam or GOG would be really nice and much more convenient.

I'd accept that, actually. They were pale amalgams of the N64 and PS2 titles, sure, but still way ahead of anything we've had since...what? '08?

Wal-Mart leaked product details for WWE 2K20 and it sounds like the premium edition or pre-order DLC characters they are pushing this year are going to be Chyna and the return of Hulk Hogan,

Very curious if they put Chyna on the male or female roster.  I'd assume in today's era she is with the females but her real fame was intergender matches.

2k's splitting with Yukes. Would be cool if the former contaced Syn Sophia and we get the Aki Engine back after 20 years, but that's a fantasy.

Once upon a time VC replacing Yuke's would be FANTASTIC news, but with the current VC team and business model, I'm expecting 2k20 to be full of shitty progression breaking microtransactions.

Given that Cody Rhodes has alluded to wanting an Aki engine game, and the newfound resurgence of love for the first two Def Jam games, I can actually see AEW throwing enough money to get such a thing made.
