Was going to post in computer games but I guess everyone who would be interested in this game would also visit here regularly

2k games just posted this on Instagram, confirming that there are going to be 120 playable characters in the game (and they don't mean 10 John cenas either)

Cool. Just hope the actual game is good. 2k15 (albeit on PS3) isn't great.

Whoa, that's a massive Roster. I actually thought that 2K14 was one of the best in years because of its roster, and it's one of the reasons that 2k15 was so disappointing the year after with a huge downgrade to those numbers.

I can imagine that NXT is a pretty big deal now, a lot of those 120 will be NXT superstars. Last year had Neville, Zayn and like Corey Graves on it, but I can see loads more this time around... Finn Balor has already been confirmed, and you'd think that the top names like Owens, Zayn, Itami and what not are no brainers. But I reckon we'll even get no names in there too.

Either that... or just take the very best and then stick a bunch of random names from the past in there! I'd love to see the likes of the Dudley Boyz or the Hardy Boyz in there.

Shit, for the theme of this game they could go for a whole "generations collide" angle. Have the best of the past go up against the best of the present (current WWE roster) and the future (NXT roster). THROW 'EM ALL IN!

It would be surprising to see TNA wrestlers in the game to be honest, but imagine Samoa Joe being in a decent game

I think the game will be pretty good.. And hopefully the career mode is something akin to their nba games. They can also get around not fitting everything on the game by releasing an update on release

Will be interesting to see if the 120 are all available without further dlc

I just hope for some sort of decent career mode like back in the day where you make choices and interact with other superstars. Playable as current stars or create your own building on the mycareer mode from 2k15 which was a start but needed more interaction and wider match choices as got boring just doing 1 on 1's majority of the time.

Roster side of things sound good though!

Also, BRING BACK GM MODE!

It's like the most requested thing every year. It was fine as it was, but very basic. If they could improve it, get it near TEW/EWR standards... that'd be cool as hell. Like, they've got a whole pool of CAW's online, why not use that as the talent pool for the game?

The Showcase mode will feature Stone Cold's career from WCW to ECW to WWE.

Some of the wrestlers being announced are really making me excited to play this.

Looking forward to seeing Austin use the stun gun in wcw

Also it's been announced that there are going to be 100 caw slots... This is going to be amazing g

Is it just the one showcase mode this year?

Saw somewhere mycareer is back but more detailed, hopefully means more than just 1 on 1 matches all the time and proper story lines.

I believe there is only the Austin showcase mode this year, however with all these stars of yesteryear there may be a surprise one. My career looks much better this time around too, with loads of different options to take, that will certainly improve playability.

Yeah seen a few bits on the MyCareer now, certainly seems a lot more about it then last year.

Quite looking forward to this game actually, hope it delivers.

Did anyone play online on 2k15? Never really touched online side of it, may give it a bash on this years title if its good fun.

I never bothered with online mode in 2K15 as I just assumed it would be full of eejits and 100 rated type dudes and those that find the glitches to win all the time etc. Granted that may have changed since last time I played it online but probably not.

Haha, can imagine what you mean. Be pretty cool to have matches against mates and stuff online though.. I assume that's do-able.

Also is it just me that would prefer MyCareer to be with a current WWE star instead of your own?

I'd like that option on my career mode, taking a HOF'er to the HOF on your own path kind of thing.

I've been playing it. The new submission system takes a bit of getting used to, and we're awaiting some kind of patch to allow us to make our own title matches in Universe mode but other than that it's a massive improvement on last year.

Got this today cos I saw it in Tesco and it had a case attached to it and I thought it might be a free Stone Cold DVD but it was just a fucking empty 'collectors case' but anyway...not played a wrasslin game since 2k13 because I decided it was just going to end up like Madden where it got mailed in every year with 'more features' but a reluctance to actually improve the core gameplay mechanics other than 'more animationz' and 'more broken match types'.

However, it's actually good. The pacing of the matches seems spot on which is testament to how they've tuned the stamina, damage, momentum and reversal systems. Not really touched the showcase mode but from memory that was basically the only enjoyable part of 2k13 so I'm looking forward to it.

I've been doing MyCareer and well, it's bad. It doesn't really seem a grind as the gameplay is good as is tuning your created wrestler and trying to progressively beat tougher and tougher opponents but the storylines are non-existent, as are the original cutscenes and any real impact your choices make (other than the Authority stuff). I honestly don't understand how they manage to fuck this sort of mode up when WWE games were doing a fairly good job of it back in the PS2 days - just write some sort of scripted story to play through and within that have 3 or 4 branch-out moments that offer some choice, 2 or 3 alternate endings to allow for replay-ability and that's it. It doesn't even have to be particularly long, just refined and something that offers a similar production value as the showcase modes.

Same with Universe Mode, don't really even know what the point of it is. It's not refined or detailed enough to be particularly immersive, it's just a completely half-arsed game mode.

Enjoying it though, the roster is magnificent (although there's some startling exclusions/inclusions) and it's the first WWE game I've played probably since I was kid where I've thought the gameplay is good, not just 'tolerable because it's wrestling and that and you can make your own fun'

This is 2Ks first attempt at revamping career mode and it's a much better effort than last years first attempt. However it's a good starting point for them going forward.

Universe mode is what you make of it. If you just want to play through without your creative input make sure automatic rivalries are on. If you want to be creative and do it your own way, which is what universe is all about then turn that off.

Austin showcase mode is fine so far granted I'm only about a quarter of the way through it but still.

Got it yesterday. It's a lot harder and that's fine, but I don't like how often the opponent kicks out of finishers. Sometimes there is simply no winning, I had Cena on no energy and hit him with two finishers in a row and he kicked out, got up, reversed everything, all of my on cue reversals were ignored and he won. That's frustrating for the length of time the matches go on for.

Certain superstars have stupidly high durability agree with that, though in my Universe mode I witnessed Brock Lesnar pin Cena without using a finisher haha. Must be a rarity that.

That's what Cena does in most matches? Pretty realistic.

Yep, it's good and also bad. When you're doing PPV matches or you're matched against someone of similar standard it's great. Annoying when you're just trying to recreate a squash match though or you're rated a lot lower than the opponent and can still lose despite taking a fraction of the moves they did. Too many matches for me also get to a stage where both the CPU and I are critically damaged and it's just a case of who can hit their stored finisher first.

Similar in MyCareer as well, I don't like how it penalises you for winning easily. I get a 5 star match is great and should be a way of being rewarded/increasing popularity etc...but I shouldn't get hurt from an SP standpoint.

A lot of stuff around the submission system as well. I don't 'hate' it but I don't like it either - it's obviously copied it from the UFC Undisputed game but in that version the circle was MUCH bigger and therefore it really was quite a strategical mini-game and you had to get your opponents stamina really low otherwise it was really hard. In WWE 2K it's just a mad scramble, I rarely feel like I'm actually in control of what I'm doing either, and where as with the reversals and chain wrestling stuff I've got better and better the more I've played - with the submissions I panic just as much as I did the first time I got put in a submission about 40 seconds into a match and tapped out.

Anyone got quite far into MyCareer yet, does it have many storylines?

I moved house at weekend so I haven't had much chance to play the game so far, do like the Stone Cold mode but not really got into MyCareer yet but it is early days.

I'm on Smackdown battling for the US title, currently feuding with Miz. Can't say i've had any storylines on the main roster other than feuding with x and authority wants me to do x and y.

Can't be arsed making a character to do MyCareer.

I'm getting bored of every match being a twenty minute John Cena, finisher kick-out marathon.
