Started playing WWE 2K16 again
My son and I have been playing a ton of WWE 2K16 lately and I really like that game. My experience with it is like it is every year. I pre-order it and buy all the DLC. I play it obsessively for a month or two, take a break, and then come back for more.
Right now we are in the "back for more" stage and it has been a blast. For example, I have started playing as Shawn Michaels a good bit recently. Last night I did a Last Man Standing Match between him and Batista. This was inspired by that Michaels/Batista beef after Michaels retired Flair at WrestleMania 24.
I won, of course, but I realized after the match that it essentially ended up being a Young Bucks Superkick Party. Good times.
With Roman Reigns I finally figured out how to Spear someone through a table which is great fun. I tried to do the same thing with a ladder, but that did not work.
After watching the Tully Blanchard v Magnum TA Steel Cage I Quit match from Starrcade '85, my son asked to create a Magnum on the game. I gave it a whirl, but ultimately downloaded one from Community Creations instead and that guy did a solid job.
The WWE games are lot of fun and I look forward to them every year. I hope WWE 2K17 keeps the vibe and feel of this year's game because it felt a lot more like a wrestling sim than it has in the past.
As always, I am looking forward to the full roster reveal. I hope they have some solid surprises in store.
