Will THQ even be around in 2 years?the new WWE games are just terrible compared to the old 64 versions

CommonSense2061d ago

I had so much fun playing World Tour. After Goldeneye 64 and Starfox 64, that was the game everyone in my high school got together to play.

No offense but I'm sick and tired of people jumping the bandwagon about how Nintendo 64 WWE games were amazing. There great, I'll give you that but I'll name 2 games that blows No Mercy & Wrestlemania 2000 away.

WWE Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain (PS2)
WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2006

I never even liked wrestling yet had tons of fun with World Tour! haha

DeadlyFire2061d ago

I myself have never had N64, but PS2 generation was amazing for WWE games. When they shifted to next-gen. They never improved the game engine really. They just pulled a Valve. Shifted a few assets ups to the new APIs and shine it up and that was about it.

HCTP and SVR 2006 were great games. I still go back to SVR 2006/2007 for my PS2 and they are still fun. I started up WWE 12 thinking wow this is going to be great they actually did something new and well they didn't. They did one thing. The scrapped the animations for the moves and redid them all so that they look fluid and clean. Changed up the AI a little. Played it a little while got bored and left it alone.

This article basically states we won't see next gen WWE game until WWE 15 in 2014. I hope TNA gets a new game license by then. Competition builds fan support. Right now there is none at all.

Why do people say No mercy was the best ? it isn't. most people who say that haven't even played the game.

Smackdown Here Comes The Pain is not only the best wrestling game i've ever played its one of the best games i've played ever.

Smackdown Here Comes The Pain had pretty much unlimited replay value and I still play it on my 60GB backwards compatible PS3 and its more fun than 90% of current gen games.

Probably because it was the first great wrestling game (A lot more options then Wrestlemania 2000) that most people played.

It also has to do with how great it was at that time. When I first found out I could bring the fight backstage, I was in awe. Had to show all my friends, even the ones that didn't watch wrestling.

showtimefolks2061d ago

so my prediction of fall 2014 launch for ps4 and xbox720 is right. I knew Fall 2013 is too early

ms and sony will follow what Nintendo did and have all the attention of them, at E3 2013, they will talk about new tech and stuff but than at E3 2014 they will actually show off what they have to offer at launch

Ben_Grimm2061d ago

That sounds right, ps3 and 360 are releasing games close to the next year. I am expecting to see a huge blowout for next years E3.

2014 sounds like a great time to get some new consoles..

MY GOD Enough with WWE games

OneAboveAll2061d ago

Why? Why not say the same thing for Madden or Fifa games? Or NHL?

If you don't like it don't buy it.

Me and my friends personally love WWE'12. Even if you don't watch wrestling the games are great fun and the replay value is far greater than most games out with the likes of custom arenas and superstars.

MySwordIsHeavenly2061d ago

I agree. I HATE wrestling in real life. Rather, I hate the fans. :/ Wrestling is something people who like MST3K can watch and enjoy making fun of. :)

That being said, the games are very fun! WWE All-Stars was just like an old 3D arcade fighter. It was the most fun I've had with multi-player in a long time.

CommonSense2061d ago

People who like MST3K should be watching Rifftrax.

MrBeatdown2061d ago

You can't just ignore games anymore. You have to hope they are never made so even the people who enjoy them can't do that.

Anyone want to sign my petition to get 98% of all shows on TV cancelled? I don't like them, so they must be done away with.

Anyone?

Seriously though, WWE games can be pretty fun even for non-wrestling fans. I was a fan of the games back in the PS1 era before I was a fan of wrestling. It was actually the games that made me into one.

Enough with WWE,FIFA,MADDEN,NHL,NBA,MBA and all the other yearly sports games that rip off us consumers.
