  1. The DLC has been announced for WWE 2K19. DLC looks to be pretty standard. Acclerrator, MyPlayer Kickstart and New Moves all return. 2 DLC wrestler packs as well. Pack 1 has Ricochet, Mike and Maria Kanellis, Lio Rush, Candice LaRae, Lacey Evans and Dakota Kai. Pack 2 has Bobby Lashley, EC3, and the War Raiders (Hanson and Rowe). I guess that's it for the info for the game now, so now we wait.

      I have played WWE games on-and-off since Wrestlemania Challenge (NES-1990). I know the good, the bad, the overrated and the obscure. My favorite is actually WWE 2K14 (an unusual choice, to be sure). I've seen the modern era be horrendous for the fans to be sure. I'll check out the Towers mode and see if it lives up to the hype, beat up some Bellas and Iconics and hopefully have strong enough wifi to play MP this year (0 MP matches last year due to poor wifi). Always a crapshoot... I just hope the patch is less than last year.

      Great DLC. Looks like 2K19 will deliver awesomeness.

      @ee28max I hope so. The fans deserve a good game. The new feature is the Towers mode (themed old-school gauntlets) and Showcase returns with Daniel Bryan. As for the DLC, the major difference is current wrestlers instead of legends and I'm ok with that. Though it did lead to some I wasn't expecting, but more egos to bruise is always a good thing. I just hope the Day 1 Patch is smaller this year... my wifi only goes at 1GB an hour... on a good day!

  2. The good news: my 3 Sound Shapes Plats mean Plats 42-44. Enigmatis was Plat 41 last week.

    Bad news: somewhere in the process of the 70-foot journey of hooking up the ethernet cable, it internally broke. I guess I'm destined to have bad Internet like Nikki Bella of WWE fame is destined to "die all alone" (sorry fans, couldn't resist... don't like her... hehehe)

      Congrats on the Plats! Sucks about the cable.. What kind did you use? I've had one of these running through the basement for a few years now, and it still works great.

      Well done! 💯

  3. I'm counting down the days to WWE 2K19 now.

    First order of business when I get it: putting the patch in... it's 2018 and there are always patches... BOO!

    Next up: rather than beating up Cena or Reigns or Brock like most of my friends... or many other people for that matter... I will do an 8-Woman Tag consisting of Kairi Sane, Alexa Bliss, Bayley and Becky Lynch versus Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Peyton Royce and Billie Kay. (You can tell I don't like fashionistas, yes?) All joking and hate aside, we will see if 8-person matches are smoother this year.

    Then, I will check out the Towers mode. We'll see if it lives up to the hype, yes? One can always hope! Lots of themes and match types in a gauntlet style. Then, who knows!

  4. Well everyone, my ethernet cable and various tools needed to actually get it from my router to my PS4 is here... well, at the house of my dad who ordered it for me online (though I did pay for it mind you). Now we just need a day to get it to where I live and set it up (we do need to drill a thin hole above one door... but only one thankfully). Once done, I should see my download speed FINALLY come out of the proverbial Stone Age!

  5. 28 days until WWE 2K19 comes out. Still slow with the info is 2K. Big non-surprise. On the up side, the Roster Reveal hit Part 2 recently, so the people from Raw, Smackdown, NXT, NXT UK and 205 Live who made it have been announced. Legends and DLC wrestlers to be announced later. We have seen over 130 people announced so far! At least that's one good thing... as in more egos to bruise as the old saying goes! *evil laugh*

      Well, to be fair, there probably won't be that much difference from last year.

    2. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      If they are hiding info this late then the only new thing is likely the return of Showcase featuring Daniel Bryan. On the up side, 133 current wrestlers (not counting legends and DLC) is an increase. This same portion of the roster was 111 last year. It also  features 23 first-time wrestlers in the series. The roster is debated to no end. I worry more about the mechanics, how big the patches are and if I'll actually get to play online this year.

  6. Anyone else bothered by how late the info has been for WWE 2K19? The Showcase Mode featuring Daniel Bryan and Part 1 of the Roster Reveal not happening until late August being a good example. Sounds to me like 2K has gotten arrogant and is just asking to get burned. Oh well, maybe I'll create some "custom wrestlers" that look like 2K devs and have Randy Savage drop elbows on them! Or Kairi Sane on female devs... she is confirmed!

      Don't know what happened with those clowns out there but I'm more surprised they can find European nations on a map! *evil laugh* All vile jokes aside, I'm saying the smug sense of assuming your fans will simply return every year remind me of WWE for some strange reason.

      @Icebrand1270 Belgium recently banned lootboxes and 2K was begging their fans to write the government to make them reconsider...don't think many will take them up on that.

    4. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @Spyro Oh, heard about that. Anyway, the arrogance of 2K is more off-the-page than a WWE fan's hate of Roman Reigns to think their game will sell after 2  bad years and such little info. I've done WWE games since Wrestlemania Challenge on NES in 1990 (second WWE game in history). My only desire these days is to beat up "marks" online who play cheap (I announce at the "indie" level). Of course, my wifi won't let me.

  7. Plat 40 is the Vita version of Rugby 15!

  8. Might be getting a wired ethernet connection later this month. The wifi in my neighborhood is awful so wish me luck everyone!

      I've had a wired connection for about 2 years and i can honestly say I don't know how i ever got along without it Lol good luck friend :)

    2. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @ThePhantomWriter I'm lucky to download at 1GB per hour. Yes, that bad. And it gets worse every summer and December. Then a 2GB patch becomes an all-day event. This ethernet connection would be a veritable oasis in a desert.

    3. ThePhantomWriter

      ThePhantomWriter

      it makes a difference, definitely. A great long-term investment.

  9. Spending too much time at home between events. It's clear I need to do more outside... just don't know what.

      It's been the same for me lately, though I tend to exercise in between long gaming sessions to break that feeling of laziness and heaviness from gaming too much. 

       

      Lol then again it's indoors for me... But you can go for a jog ;)

      @BG_painter @PooPooBlast My neighborhood... and hometown... are not what they once where. That and I have suffered multiple varicose vein ruptures in my feet and ankles that reduce my walking speed. Leg pain and discomfort are my everyday now.

      that makes me sad :( i'm sorry

  10. [Fire Pro Wrestling World] 20 Trophies earned in the first 2 days, 11 to go before Platinum! One should know that this game does NOT keep track of how many matches are played... and you need to play 1,000 for a trophy! YIKES! Needless to say, it's the difficult and grindy 11 trophies that remain, so this won't be easy. I may even go back to Shenmue first to get Platinum 40. Suggestions welcome!

  11. Anyone else here getting Fire Pro Wrestling World tomorrow?

    1. ee28max

      ee28max

      I should get it when I get a PS4 :D 

  12. [Shenmue] NOW I'm on a roll! 7 Trophies away from Plat. 5 story, 2 missable. With Fire Pro Wrestling World coming in tomorrow... and all paid off at the local GameStop (no hate please) I have a decision to make: ride Shenmue to Plat or switch to Fire Pro, which I'm sure to enjoy (and did on GBA and PS2)? Suggestions welcome!

  13. [Shenmue] Took a couple of days but I got the Break and Enter trophy. Glad that's over... oh am I ever bad at stealth!

  14. Plat 39 and Trophy 2000: Day Of The Tentacle Remastered (PS4)! Didn't mind "revisiting" this one on my new account... just as funny the second time around!

      :O! you are playing it already!! I intend to play it someday!

    3. Icebrand1270

      Icebrand1270

      @BG_painter I highly suggest a walkthrough (spoiler-free preferred but your choice) so you don't miss as much as I did the first time. Took me 4 times to get the 4 trophies I missed because I have no clue what I'm doing. There is NO minimap, but remember that this is a Dreamcast remake so that was normal back then so we'll forgive it.

    4. BG_painter

      wow! I always play without guides the first time then the second time i use guides. I hadly ever plays games on launch so by the time i get there, i trust there will be a good guide for me hihihih :giggle:
