Feel the sting of a new WWE 2K15 trailer

I’m actually a little bummed that WWE2K15 is coming to the new consoles later than their aged counterparts. Not long Ago, 2K Games announced that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the digital slobberknocker would be released over two weeks later than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. This makes me sad, because I’m an elitist snob.

It means we’ll probably have to review the game on those old consoles, playing the game without the sheen and sheer afforded by the extra power in the newer ones. I do realise there’s a certain irony in calling myself elitist and being excited for a wrestling game, but hear me out. It seems like it’ll be a bunch of fun.

I can’t say I care much for the melodrama of today’s wrestling, and I barely recognise any of the faces and muscly, roid-fuelled bodies you’ll see these days – but I’ve always appreciated a good wrestling game. It’s much the same way that I appreciate UFC games despite hating watching people beat each other to a bloody pulp.

I did get to play the new gen version of the game, and while it was a little wonky it certainly looked incredible, much of that due to the incredible new face and body scanning that 2K has done. Here’s a new gameplay trailer showing some wrestlers including Bray Wyatt, Triple H, Cesaro, Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar, Kane, Hulk Hogan, Alexander Rusev, Rob Van Dam and Sting. I actually even recognise some of those names.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Looks much better than the last one I actually sat and played/owned.

    • Hammersteyn

      • ReaperOfSquirrels

        Sorry Geoff… I just had to. I actually know what Summer Slam is, it’s just so much fun giving you hassles from time to time.

        • I thought it was a clever pun. Apparently I’m just not very funny.

          • I can confirm this.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Which part?

          • You decide?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            bwhahahaha – I just got moaned at about spoiling Tywin getting skewered.

            “But it says spoiler in caps right before it…”
            “I DIDN’T SEE THAT!”

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            He’s a junior pun master. Pay no attention & continue.

          • Brandon van Reenen

            It was clever.

        • lol

      • TheBrain

        Wow, that’s some serious next level logic.

  • “I can’t say I care much for the melodrama of today’s wrestling, and I barely recognise any of the faces and muscly, roid-fuelled bodies you’ll see these days ”

    I stopped caring years ago when it became more of a soap opera than actual entertainment, should start calling it the “suplexed and the tombstoned of our lives/generations/city/keeping up with/take the hamptons/the need” bleh soooo many damn soapies to name.

    Still imagine if you could play as this sting
