6 Things I Hope WWE2K17 Will Have (But Probably Won’t)

And with that 2K Games has launched its latest WWE vehicle, promising access to WCW legend Goldberg and a pair of WCW arenas (Monday Nitro and Halloween Havoc) to anyone that pre-orders the title, expected to arrive in October this year.

The problem is, 2K’s wrestling titles have begun to attract an unfortunate stigma: that no matter how much new content is added, the absence of notable features from previous games will always make it feel like a lesser product to titles from the PS1 or PS2 generations. While WWE2K16 righted the ship in some aspects, it was still missing old match types, old in-ring functionality, old creation suite features and other key elements.

WWE Survivor Series 2015

Survivor Series 2015 sucked ass

I suppose we should all be kinda thankful it took the creative team at WWE a full ten months to come up with something that makes this year’s weaksauce Fastlane look good. It gave us ten months of continued hope; ten months of the possibility that maybe, just maybe, they were about to turn the corner. Survivor Series this week took all that goodwill built up over a brace of impressive matches at last month’s Hell In A Cell and wasted it. Read the rest of this entry
