Quest get? 
 
EDIT: What luck. I don't have any interest in this game, though. That makes me feel so dirty...

I'm calling it: Worst video game trailer of 2011.

THERE IS NO VIDEO GAME IN YOUR VIDEO GAME TRAILER, DAWG.

You're underestimating the truly next gen graphical step up that WWE '12 brings to the table.

I think it's cute that little boys have their homoerotic soap operas.

I don't give a shit about wrestling, but even I think Randy Orton is cool

Well I give them credit for trying to improve their product but......where's WWE All Stars 2!?

The South is stoked.

@TurboMan: Talking shit about something that hasn't even been released.Bravo

I believe in the "badder" part. Not exactly overwhelmed by the preliminary screenshots. WWE Wrestle game 20XX has always been the Fable of wrestling games. Lots of promises - poorly executed and under-delivered.
 
Haven't purchase any game from this series at release since 2007 (which I still fire up from time to time) and this one will be no different.

Seeing as the gameplay and everything is being gutted and is being completely redone i would say yes.. that would make it a reboot.
#23 Posted by NegativeCero (2928 posts) -

So, is "badder" an actual word? Hopefully they change more than just a few things now but I still haven't cared about wrestling games for a while.

What if all this was actually the in-game footage?! Our minds would be blown.

It depends on how you look at it.  WWE I would said is technically better, but Impact is so hilariously bad that it is a lot more entertaining.  Its honestly like a parody of an actual wrestling show.

Sometimes it's just too much, like Sting vs Jeff Hardy at Victory Road. That was just pathetic and if I bought that, I would want my money back. Impact is just god awful.

It would be nice if THQ acted on those promises one year and just gave us what we wanted. An updated game that played and functioned like Here comes the pain....

Lawl this was ok I guess, this is the best thing about wrestling seeing the hype video or w/e it is, so I guess wwe is releasing video editing software, I would totally buy that HAHAHAHAHA.

I thought it was going to ask me to see a fight on saturday.

#31 Posted by Geirfinnur (5 posts) -

Just make another all stars that is what is going to sell god damn it also I want another one.

#32 Posted by TadThuggish (882 posts) -

It breaks my heart that Yuke's is still making this.  They're a tired, lazy developer.  WWE '12 isn't a reboot, just a name change. 
 
Now, if WWE All Stars got sequels with higher production values and a brighter, heh, "push" (do you get it wrestling lingo) then I'd be in love.  Even if the All Stars concept is beaten in to the ground SVR or Call of Duty style, at least it would be a significant change to the yearly formula.

Wait... Video games?
#34 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

Wow, that game trailer sure seemed a lot like some shitty PPV promo. Maybe this really will be the most realistic wrestling game ever! Just needs more shitty nu-metal.

#35 Posted by Demoskinos (13927 posts) -

I like how everyone is saying  "Oh all they are doing is changing the name"  and haven't even read the articles of the hands on impressions about  how they have stripped the entire animation system and control scheme out  and how the core engine itself is being retooled completely  for faster and more fluid gameplay. 
 
 
I'll agree this was a dumb first trailer to put out but I'm going to at least wait until more video starts to surface of actual gameplay before I start throwing this under the bus.

I do love Randy Orton.
