I can't say I knew that, so thanks. I may end up jumping on it then. $40 for each day one sounds good enough for me. AC games normally drop, but I'm too excited for this one too wait.


It's true. The way Target does ALL their store deals is that they set the "return value" per item. So if you buy 3 games, each game will have a return value of 39.99 (assuming you purchased 3 $60 games). Unlike BB where they put a random game for free, which makes a return there practically unethical, Target's registers were programmed with common sense.

Many thanks. I know for sure I'll be getting WWE 13 this way. You just made my day (after WWE Hell in a Cell and the Giants took a shit all over it).

WWE 13 looks incredible. I haven't got a wrestling video game since Smackdown Vs. Raw 2009 (which I think sucked) but this game looks amazing. The attitude era was so nostalgic for me since I first started watching WWF in 1997 when I was about 9 years old. Definitely picking this up.

I just bought WWE 12 for 10 bucks, and I'm glad I did because I hate the gameplay (admittedly, probably because I suck and NOTHING is explained -- I ended up losing the opening attack on Cena about 5 times before winning). I can't imagine it being different enough that I'd be happy with a $60 purchase of WWE 13.

I read the results in this thread and until this morning I was thinking "they had him debut as a REF?!?!?!?!"

The I realized I was confusing the name Jon Moxley for Maddox. Except Jon Moxley is now Dean Ambrose(™,®, all rights reserved, WWE, Inc. 2012), so that couldn't be right.

Poor Brad Maddox is gonna be Dangerous Danny Davis. Guys get ruined starting off from gimmicks like "the evil ref" and their careers can never recover. Why don't they just hire enhancement talent for short term contracts for that stuff instead of waste guys they put time and money into in FCW?

During the nWo Legends roundtable that WWE produced, Nash talked about his first "Diesel" contract w/ WWF was for $1500 and like 10-15 appearances. So why can't "the evil ref" get the same treatment?

Just thinking out loud - that would save WWE money and give some indy guys more exposure than just jobber grist for the Ryback mill.

8.4 from IGN. http://www.ign.com/a...9/wwe-13-review

Though WWE ’13 wisely retains the massive, necessary and fundamentally great gameplay changes of last year, it still continues to find ways to advance THQ’s franchise as a whole. Of particular note is the game’s superb single-player experience, which should serve as the foundation for all future endeavors. If anything, the smart objective design and use of archival WWE footage makes us want more – and there’s no turning back.


Still, there are flaws – some lingering from past years and some because of experimentation that doesn’t quite work. Some video, audio and animation issues appear frequently, and the Universe and Creative modes could certainly use some retooling, if only for an improved user interface. That said, THQ’s accomplishments in revamping its wrestling games are clear. Here’s hoping that continues.


Reading the whole review, it almost comes across as "This game kinda sucks, but it's cool because it's got 90s wrestlers in it".

Why do I feel like it's going to be Maddox vs Ryback tonight? It would be awesome to see Maddox crush Ryback and the look on Punk's face as Maddox points to Punk. But shit, who the hell am I kidding? Ryback will just win anyways. I think I smell what story line I'm making this year.

Considering it's the only game in town for WWE, much like with Madden and NBA2K, I kind of have to buy it if I want a new wrestling game. $40 day one with the Target B2G1 Free deal sounds okay for me. I'll be able to get the DLC pack this way too.

KMart is offering a $15 gaming coupon with WWE 13, so you could get a $20 XBL/PSN card for $5 for all of the DLC. Not a bad deal.

fan axxess = all the dlc, right?

also, can anyone confirm that they revamped the dreadfully overwrought menu/online/download system? it was so unnecessarily overcomplicated that I was offended by its clumsiness. so if it's still around this year...

I may pick it up (fan axxess) for $10, and then buy the game when it hits $20-30 (which it surely will, if only for a sale, before Christmas).

I know I've said it already, but I'm pretty excited for WWE '13. I'll accept the 8.4 rating, even if it is likely a bit generous. The nostalgia factor (even if it may be watered down; Thanks Linda) should be more than enough to enhance my enjoyment of the game for a couple months.

Was it Granier or Dupree who was the ref that screwed Hogan at No Way Out? Either way, they did alright, at least as a tag team after the evil ref debut.

It was Grenier.

I think I remember reading in the summer that Maddox was finished as a wrestler and would become a full-time ref, so there's not really a wrestling career to be ruined.
