Gonna be a lot of hate towards this game though for being racist. Once again the racists who run things white-wash a black athlete to take away his credit. Mike Tyson is now a white guy in Austins Showcase Mode. He is the Enforcer!

 

Is it "Mr Dream aka the Enforcer" ?

I was thinking the same thing a little bit later.

 

Another problem with the game, maybe I just havent figure it out though, is this; I wrestle Hollywood Blondes Brian Pillman. His face is different than the Hart Foundation Pillman. I think "Cool, I bet I can edit him with his Bengal shorts design". I finish the match and "Flyin' Brian Pillman Attire" unlocks. It is the orange and black Bengal stripes. Great, I can just go and edit him real quick, give him those as an alternate attire. I go and pick Pillman to edit and ... There is no way to edit the Hollywood Blondes model Pillman. Only lets you edit the Foundation model. Errr. Why tease with his attire being there?

After Raw this past Monday and Zeb's explanation as to why him and Alberto are teaming up, I really hope their theme music is John Lennon's "Imagine".

Yea, I got to keep TWO songs checked!! As soon as I got sick of listening to Skid Row and Billy Idol I unchecked those too. Silence is better than the same song over and over.

I frequently hear advertisements for bands like Drowning Pool and their nu-metal brethren from 15 years ago going on these tours together. They usually feature about 5 bands and they seem to draw crowds. It's crazy. I'll cop to enjoying some of thay stuff when it was brand new (I was in high school and even dumber than I am now) but it certainly hasn't aged well to my ear.

End tangent.

I was hanging out in a bar in Brooklyn (hipster capital of the goddamned world) last year, and the bartender there (young, hot, good conversationalist) was STOKED AS Fuck to be going on the "311 Cruise" starting the next morning.

 

I was fucking aghast.

It's weird to me that 311 still has a following. I live in Indy and people around here go crazy for 311, Disturbed, and Godsmack for some reason. These people also tend to have generally awful taste in just about everything though.

So to be honest I've seen Godsmack live once as they opened for Metallica, They put on quite the show. I've never been a fan of theirs but i was very impressed by how well they performed live. As for bands like 311 I know people who go nuts for them totally in an ironic way (not that that is any kind of valid excuse).

I thought I clicked on the wrong thread for a second, but nope. And I'll cosign on being baffled at 311 having any popularity at all, especially in the year of our lord two thousand and fucking fifteen.

So Rich Swann and Biff Busick have officially signed with NXT.  Very different styles but both are good wrestlers.  They better let Swann have some dance-offs.

I saw them both (and Shinedown too) at LouderThanLife while watching NXT, and I'm going to see them all again in Knoxville on the 10th.

 

Also, guy with the worst taste in music checking in.

Yeah, we're going to agree to disagree on musical preferences, I think.

 

We were pulled down the cheese metal rabbit hole, so I don't think anyone answered - is this the kind of default rawk music in 2K16?

Also just because I like that kind of rock/soft metal doesn't mean I don't like other things, I listen to almost everything.  I can still love The Beatles and listen to today's mainstream rock music too lol.  

 

When it comes to 2K16's music this year I know that Run DMC's "It's Tricky" is on there so it by default has to be better than last year's soundtrack.

Is Biff going to be a "Big Bully"? Harvey needs work!

 

I had a friend who cancelled a date because the girl "hated Ozzy but loved Godsmack". Oh lord.

 

I haven't purchased 2k16 yet, my wife has handed me 10 PS4 games this month alone so my backlog is nuts. I can't see myself falling for this year's version like I did last year. I was so disappointed.

 

I can'r remember which version it was but David Otunga's music played OVER AND OVER in the menu made me want to vomit.



#3082 MsMaroon  

Posted 30 October 2015 - 10:17 PM

I remember that year where it was just Otungas music on repeat. That was awful.

 

Biff Bully Busick has a good ring to it. He needs the mustache though.

 

People who bash other peoples music are pretty comical. You dont like the same as me so your music choice sucks. Bla. The only exceptions to that is if the person likes techno... or Nirvana, then bash away. Any other music and who cares? Just dont be around when they listen to it and it shouldnt be an issue for you.

 

2K16 isnt too bad. As soon as you figure out the stupid submission mini game it gets a lot better. Still a ton of bugs to be fixed. The main one I am annoyed by is half the time you have a finisher stored it just wont let you do a finisher. Eventually the thing comes up but especially during the showcase where you NEED to do your signature move before it goes away and cant it gets tedious.

Godsmack and Disturbed are considered bad?  

 

I don't even know who 311 are.

 

And the only song I recognize on that 2K16 setlist is Rebel Yell.  

 

As long as the WWE games don't include one of the worst songs of all time

Spoiler
then I'll manage.

I think you need to have about half of your stamina to be able to do a finisher so check that next time to make sure you aren't too gassed to pull one off. I don't actually have the game yet but from what I hear this is true.

Is it true you can't even used that licensed soundtrack music for entrance themes in the game? Can't believe we're still having to have this limited entrance music discussion when the goddamn FIRST Xbox solved the issue.

I am so glad they allowed for the default music to be turned off and replaced with superstar themes this year.

wait...what? can you elaborate on what this means?

 

Just skimmed an interview w/ Batista (promoting the new Bond movie) where he said that he butted heads w/ WWE and wanted his last run to include coming back as a heel. He says that he argued being a face wouldn't work, the crowd would hate it, etc. etc.

 

So here we have two possibilities:

1) He's telling the truth and WWE wasn't listening before or during his return. It took a near fan revolt for them to change.

2) He's being dishonest and rewriting history to make it seem like he was able to determine how the crowd would handle him, suggesting he knew better when WWE didn't.

 

Both seem plausible. WWE's incredible reluctance to change paths despite fans shitting all over the latest push (Reigns) is definitley a good likelyhood. OTOH, I'm not sure I believe that Batista doesn't see himself as a face.



#3089 MsMaroon  

Posted 02 November 2015 - 04:15 PM

I believe Batista 100%.

 

Just look at the way he left WWE before his return. The crowd HATED him and cheered when he said he was leaving. There was no "Thank You Dave" chants during that time, it was cheers of joy that he was going away. He had beyond XPac heat on him. So for anyone to think he should return as a good guy and go over a guy who had the entire WWE Universe on their side would be demented. Also, Batista said pretty much the same thing in an interview a few weeks after his RR return.

I skimmed through "Brock Lesnar Guy's" Instagram and I couldn't help but chuckle when he posted a picture of the first Linkin Park album saying it "changed his life".

 

Is this guy trolling us or is he just "that guy"?
