  1. I know we got a Kenny Omega entrance in 2K19 but I wouldn't mind a different one as well, since that one only fits one fascet of his personality.
  2. This might be the safest Ganso Bomb i've ever seen. Holds him higher up than normal so that they don't hit the mat at the same time, and then uses his legs to let Warrior slide to the ground safer.
  3. How about the Mad Scientist Bomb?
  4. 2K19 was a great game. Here's the thing, when most people hear game engine, they tend to think way to rigidly. Its not a simple factor of "game engine old therefore bad". It can be limiting if something in the engine wasn't built to handle an idea (for instance, the current WWE games engine is not built to handle submission holds from a turnbuckle that go into the submission mini-game, thus why the turnbuckle Bully Choke or whatever Brian kendrick changed it to is just a regular impact move). But the engine like anything else is still a bundle of code that can be edited and modified by talented coders. The main problem, of course, is time. Working on an engine, whether modifying an existing one or creating a new one, is a lot more involved than just making a game using the engine. The issue is not that the engine is bad or anything of the like, the problem is A: They brought in a bunch of new coders who had absolutely no experience with the thing for 2K20, B: they used 2K18 as the base for some idiotic reason even though 2K19 had already fixed up a lot of stuff. C : (*Censored* off emojis) from what I can tell, Yukes coding is already rather messy and any programmer will tell you trying to read someone elses code if it isn't extremely well done is like pulling teeth. D : (seriously, *Censored* off emojis) 2K20s issues from what i've heard was not just code related. Do I think a great game can be made on the current engine? Of course I do, Skyrim was made on the same engine, albeit modified, as Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Morrowind. WWE 2K19, while still rather buggy, was made on the same engine as 2K18 and 2K20. I also am aware that they would need a lot of time off (in-office as well, and likely 2 or 3 years just working on the engine without even using it to make a game) to make a new engine that wouldn't have enormous caveats, sloppy code, or severe oversights. The goal here for 2K needs to not be "oh no engine bad we need new engine now plz yes", it needs to be sitting everyone down, getting familiar with the code and how it all works, dedicating some goddamn time to bug testing and fixing, management that doesn't sit around on their ass and leave everyone with no clue what they're doing, and a willingness to stand up to 2K and WWE and say "if we release this broken, its going to be another disaster. If we need extra time, give us the goddamn extra time". 2K20 was in my personal opinion the culmination of multiple issues with Yukes departure acting as the catalyst to trigger them. I am of the personal opinion Yukes leaving is not a bad thing, they are not blameless in the issues the games have had for years, and going across the pond on a constant basis to make a game every year was eventually going to blow up in their faces. The problem is the suddenness of it all, and no one thinking ahead. The engines age is actually something of a minor factor, I think, in it all. Whats needed is time, talent, and common sense. The upcoming competition might also be a nice kick in the ass which the series has sorely needed.
  5. Rumour has it Sony is working on a proper answer to gamepass (since Now certainly isn't it) but your point of view is certainly understandable.
  6. Got mine just the other day. Thank God for kijiji
  7. There was no way they were gonna build a new engine once COVID kicked in, thats not the kind of thing you do from home without wanting to shoot yourself.
  8. What, you don't think WWE'12 Booker T is the epitome of quality?
  9. The models looked about the same, but the lighting, specifically the shine, seemed to be better.
  10. How long before ya think WWE 2K22 gets its own section? We could probably move the entrances thread and my moves wishlist thread over to it.
  11. I'm a huge critic of 2Ks advertising and marketing system (they're the opposite yet equally as awful as THQ was), so seeing them mention it this early and even show in-game models this early is, to me, a good sign.
  12. If this isn't just lip-service then i'm glad to hear it. Until they prove it though, there's only one person in 2K whose word I trust and they haven't been around since November.
  13. Well the graphics certainly didn't look too bad, though not mindblowing by any means. I would need to see more without constant quick cuts to make a proper judgement but the lghting looked good at least.
  14. Was hoping the game would run a bit better and more stable on PS5 but nope, still runs like dogshit. Dunno how much more i'm going to do before 2K22 at this rate, considering every CAW I make is a fight to get the game to let me make what I want.
  15. Of all the damn people who could've come back, it had to be you. God I need to get some blood pressure pills..
  16. Work from home is a thing, and a hell of a lot easier to do when you work with computers than it is via physical labour. They've been working on it, they'd have been idiots not to be.
  17. What exactly do you think they were doing? They have a team dedicated specifically to WWE games, and i'm fairly certain Battleground was handled by a different team, nevermind that they started taking polls and suggestions immediately after the new manager took over. If they haven't been using that extra time, they're absolute fools.
  18. There is no game at all that is completely bug free, i'm not asking for an impossible task, I just don't want it to be... well, 2K20.
  19. Something "functional" coming out. I do have high hopes for this though. I'm expecting it not only to be.. you know, not a buggy mess, but with some nice features or at least existing features expanded on, and hopefully the new gen versions looking nice.
  20. eh, I'd prefer they still release around october/november, more dev time. Instead i'm hoping this means they're dropping their infuriating minimalist advertising system for it. They need to wow the crowd after 2K20s disaster, which means if I were them i'd be pulling out all the stops to show off everything they can and assure people it won't blow up in their faces again.
  21. I don't really play much sports games so I don't know what developers are good and what ones aren't. Ironically I probably actually wouldn't complain too much if THQ Nordic came a calling.
  22. No. I despise EA, I would straight up just not play a game they released, period. I would be done with the series if it fell into their hands.
  23. If it doesn't help, then i'm absolutely done defending them. I've championed 2K for years, but 2K20 was simply inexcusable.
