Should be an uncrappy week…
Yes…uncrappy…why? Because not only do we get two roster reveals this week (and fill in some of those mystery spots) but there’ll be a WWE Universe video made public at some point. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess a mystery spot as I don’t really care about the one’s we know going live. I think they’ll reveal just one and I think it’ll be the worst of the bunch. My guess is that if it’s a legend…then JYD. If they unveil a someone no longer actively employed, then I pick Mickie James. Of course, it could be Vinnie Mac as they accidentally showed him on a recent HBK video. Either way, I’m not expecting much (based off the last reveal). Speaking of the last reveal, what’s up with the Hart Dynasty’s ‘7-footer’ double title entrance? Tyson stepping over the top rope? Hopefully, there’s more than one double title entrance (after all, the one we saw wasn’t a new entrance, just an old one with a title also around the waist).
WWETHQ on youtube published this beautiful little nugget on Sunday:
This is more of the type of crap I wanna see…actual gameplay. It looks awesome, the match flows, the new reversals and chain-wrestling works really well…only issue I saw was that Brian was able to play the match, go for specific spots at will while doing commentary and ‘play’ with Jericho on legend setting. So once we’re used to it, it appears that legend difficulty won’t be difficult even when facing a top guy.
I’m very hopeful for Universe mode…it’s pretty much the feature I’ve always wanted in a WWE game. This week we should get to see if it’s going to live up to the hype and if THQ have neglected to show us how limited it really might be. If I were a betting man, based on the stuff we’re getting this year and the freedom that THQ have finally realized they needed to allow us to enjoy, I’d bet that it’ll live up to the hype.
Just ordered my Hitman Edition of SVR 11…can’t wait! But I’m just hopeful that at some point, I can pick up the Ministry Taker attire and TTTT arena…
