Seriously, enough is enough. Get Spike. Get Syn Sophia/AKI. Get anyone but mother fucking Yukes to make the next WWE video game. We've had enough of underdeveloped bullshit like this...

Prior thread

Neocisco, I intentionally sandbagged the last thread with an awful thread title. It went several posts without any takers and I decided to rile the sensitivities regarding the thread's title. For funsies. Nice to see folks were on top of it this time around.

Next time I catch the opportunity to start the wrestling thread: "Razor Ramon HG Wrestling Thread! Fuu!!" You're all warned.

While it's not quite up there with the N64 games (can someone tell me how the AI in those games was damn near perfect and they haven't been able to match it since?) WWE 13 is easily the best wrestling game I've played this generation.

WWE's YouTube show "Are You Serious?" ended today after 52 weekly episodes. Now I'm sad.

I got a Wii U yesterday, and today I was messing around with the Youtube app. I happened to stumble upon the full 1997 Rumble match. I sat down with my lunch to watch it, and holy crap, it was bad.

Crush and Ahmed were the first two in, and they did some of the most awkward, uh, grappling I've ever seen. Then Faarooq comes out of the tunnel, so obviously Johnson did the most logical thing and jumped over the top rope to chase him. After that, "Razor Ramon", P.I.G., Austin, and Bart Gunn were out. Bart tried some sort of Fame-asser I guess on Austin and it was just bad. It's at the 9:40 mark in the video. I gave up not long after that. The Vince, JR, and Lawler announce team is also a lot worse than I remember them being.

I will concede that the quality got worse over time, but it was still a fun 5 minute distraction every Sunday. I'll miss PuppetH.

Seeing "Diesel" in that match just reminds me how awesome his showing up a couple years ago was.

It's one of those cases where you hope they get better, or return to form. Kind of like how you and I sit here and still bitch about wrestling being absolutely shit... but hey, we both still watch the stuff.

Booker looks amazing in the TNA picture. Maybe I should've grabbed that game when it was on clearance everywhere a couple years ago.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

It's actually pretty good once you finally get into the groove.

The story mode was pretty interesting and strange.

Well another thing is notice WWE has allowed WWE '12 and WWE '13 to be glitch fest shit. They know something's really wrong there and they just don't care.

Hell look at No Mercy and WCW/nWo Revenge which I played some of recently. Those are great and even WCW Nitro was better. Hell WCW Nitro pc had -online play- even. Amazing for it's time for a wrestling game. But WCW Nitro and I think Thunder too had that badly broken trick to where you could drain a whole lifebar in seconds. It was something like hold up + circle to get them stuck in a test of strength grapple and drain there life to nothing.

Ain't saying much when you consider how Yuke's set the bar down at the ankles. I really did try to like WWE 13, but shit, that game is terrible. All of the Yuke's games play like the old In Your House games—but without the novel, lavish attacks.

I'm in the "new engine or I ain't playing" crowd for the next generation of WWE games. The Day of Reckoning games were the last good WWE games. They can do better.

Did anyone watch ROH last night?

Charlie Haas is awesome, and Silas Young stood out in his match like whoa.

I'm only really interested in the Rumble itself tonight. The other matches aren't really bringing me in. Of course the rumble could be terrible like last years. You guys still do a chat for the PPVs?

I guess they really thought ADR needed a rub from Bret Hart.

Also, Bret Hart looks ancient.

Haven't really read spoilers on surprise entrants other than
Spoiler
, but my predictions:

Team Hell No
Alberto Del Rio
The Rock
Rumble surprise returns = Mark Henry, Christian, Evan Bourne (wishful thinking), Faarooq/Ron Simmons.. man, are there any former stars still in shape? DDP would be a great surprise entrant.. I'd love some off the wall ones.

Fixed.

The title of Best Wrestling Game of the Generation goes to Rumble Roses XX. Why? *Cough*Candy Cane*Cough* Because Yukes didn't Fuck it up (too badly). And because it has this under-appreciated gem of an entrance theme...



Those guitar solos give me goosebumps.

Royal Rumble Predictions:
WHC - Alberto Del Rio
Tag Team - Rhodes Scholars
WWE - CM Punk
Royal Rumble - Dolph Ziggler

Even though Ziggler and Cena are the favorites to win the Rumble, I'm personally rooting for Daniel Bryan. Ever since his WM loss, he's been consistently good at whatever was thrown at him.
