Wrestling!

Posted by afrokola

The Attitude Era stuff is really my main reason for being excited about this game. I haven't bought a wrestling game in probably five years, but I'll definitely be picking this one up.

Posted by Reddy1124
@FilipHolm: Of the World Entertainment variety!
Posted by Goblin

So they didn't have all these things until now?

That's just sad.

Edited by Rabid619

This will probably be the first wrestling game I've bought in almost ten years.

Here's to hoping they've improved a lot... though I'm not all that hopeful it has. Making the crowd seem more dynamic looks like a great thing, though the commentary still seems bad.

But hey, JR! BAH GAWD IT'S JR!

Edit: Just laughed so hard at the "Oh my god" chant at the end. I understand you can't have them chant "Holy shit", but come on, find something a little better than that!

Posted by AjayRaz

i have never ever heard a wrestling crowd chant "oh my god"

Posted by Alex

@Rabid619: You'd think "HOLY CRAP!" would be the easy substitute there.

I must say that I know this game will be eerily similar to last years game because they all are. However, the new gameplay features they are adding do seem really cool. I love the idea of being able to counter into your finisher from the top and the spectacular moments and dynamic crowd should add as much realism as is possible from a WWE game.

I wonder how far they are going with this Attitude Era thing they were talking about. I wonder how many superstars from that time period they will put in the game. If guys like the New Age Outlaws, Val Venis, Godfather, X-Pac, etc. will be there or if it will just be a few guys like the ones we saw in the video Makind, Stone Cold, and Old School Taker.

That 'Oh My God!' chant sounds so weird in place of the usual 'Holy Shit!' one but they are not exactly going to put that one in the game, obviously.

Posted by MjHealy

Says quite a bit about modern wrestling when they put an Attitude Era story mode and scrap all the current stuff.

We need cross-overs, WWE All-Stars style. Dolph Ziggler vs Billy Gunn, anyone?

Posted by MarvinPontiac

Any wrestling game that isn't AKI is dead to me.

Posted by Rabid619

@Alex: That'd be a bit better, but man, anything but yelling "Holy shit" will just feel... wrong. I guess that's where the issue of the WWE having a PG rating comes into play now, though.

At least it's not "Holy poop".

Posted by MarvinPontiac

Remember when they used to sell kids on how fun a game was, instead how much more polished their predator engine has become since the previous iteration? Bring back Zelda raps.

Posted by InfiniteGeass

But can I explode the ring while JR is in it?

Posted by JoshyLee

I think when one of the big improvements to a game is louder crowds, it's time for a new developer to have a go.

Day One

Posted by Scottish_Sin

@JoshyLee: Yeah, that engine they use needs reworked from the ground up and we need to see a new approach or something. The sad thing is, there is room for a great wrestling game but Yukes isn't cutting it anymore and they haven't for a few years now.

Yep, sorry. We totally dropped the ball on that one. :(

"The following WWE contest is scheduled for one fall" is not something that anyone has ever said.

Edited by Wikitoups

But will it have YES Chants????

Edit : watch the whole trailer

- Change the holy shit chants to Oh my gosh (or god?) sound a bit award

-The commentators for the spectacular moments sounds flat (compare the hell in a cell match to the real one)

What? They used say it like every time before a championship match. 
 
Tony Chimel: "The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the WWE United States Championship! Approaching the ring from ___ weighing in at ____ pounds" etc.

If jr commented my life I would sound like toughest SOB to ever live "MAH GAWD HE'S DEAD THE SON OF A BITCH KILLED HIM"

Posted by fazzle

I've got a great idea! Instead of releasing this game that's changed absolutely nothing in the last 5 years or so, how about they...don't?

Posted by dragonzord

Wow, looks a lot better than 12. Mark Henry doesn't look out of scale, and they're actually doing entrance attires this time. Commentary seems better too.

I don't want to get my hopes up, but maybe they got the UFC 3 team to help them since those guys don't have anything to do now?

Posted by LoktarOgar

The only thing JR is good for in wrestling games, is running him over with a car. One of the most common complaints (albeit less vital than, say, the fact that they play like ass) about WWE games is the commentary, and considering how many of them JR is in, he is largely to blame for that. JR being part of WWE '13 is not really a good thing.

Posted by Rabid619

@Wikitoups: If it is missing YES! chants or CM Punk yelling "It's clobbering time", imma be pissed.

Oh you didn't know? Your ass better call somebody.

I can only hope. YES! YES! YES!

Posted by SlightConfuse

Lol oh my god chants sound dUmb.

Better have a option to have crowd chant yes constantly.

Commentary still sounded terrible

Posted by SlightConfuse
@Rabid619 Wwe 12 has the clobbering time animation but no audio I hope they fix it
Posted by Demoskinos

Oh man the best part was them changing the "HOLY SHIT" chants to "OH MY GOD". This does look better than last year but still having trouble getting excited at all.

Posted by FlipperDesert

The animations look a lot smoother than '12, though the commentary seems a little wooden still. That being said, OH BAH GAWD!

Yeah but that's not what they say in the video. He doesn't say "championship", he just says "WWE contest" as opposed in any other kind of contest that happens in the WWE.

I miss THQ San Diego already.

Posted by JStaunton

So it's quite literally a game with recycled content. Oh My God!

Posted by beeryayghost

I'm buying this game. Fucking goddamit.

Posted by MeatSim

How is Triple H's hair though? That's the real question.

Posted by Forceman4077

Why ever offer 2 commentary teams, anyone who like wrestling will only pick Good Old JR.

Posted by Forceman4077

@Tredik: Me too man me too, All Stars was the first wrestling game I bought in about 6 years.

Posted by Axiomatic

It won't be a proper Attitude era or 'sound' experience without the whole "Oh You Didn't Know?!" Road Dogg entrance with additional 'Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls" speech complete with crowd sing along.

That is so much worse, having Punk go through the animation just makes him seem like some kind of horrible tattooed straight edge mime...

... okay, maybe I could actually get behind that. But not in this game!

Posted by Alex

@SlightConfuse: I don't know if I'm breaking some embargoed piece of info right now or not, but screw it. I was told the "YES! YES! YES!" chants are in the game.

If Ryback is in the game I wonder if Goldberg chants will be in the game

SLOBBERKNOCKERBAHGAWWED

Posted by HydraHam

Kinda wish the holy shit chant was in and not "oh my god" but other then that this is easily my most anticipated game of 2012, been a fan of wrestling for over 20 years and unlike some i absolutely loved WWE 12, looks like all the problems i had with '12 is being fixed in '13.

Also bring back full on GM mode :(

I dunno, I think a game by Spike, behind the King of Colosseum & Fire Pro games would be worth playing too.

Posted by Phatmac

THIS IS GONNA BE A SLOBBERKNOCKERRTTRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by MHumphreys89

Hum, when was the last time a crowd chanted 'Oh My God!' rather than 'Holy Shit!', censoring.
