Well another year and another WWE game has come and gone. And again it's another disappointing year:(  OH! where do I begin?  You know I had a "sneaking" suspicion that, the biggest draw of WWE 2k16 was going to be the "over 120 wrestlers" and I was right. Oh and not to mention they're locked off in the beginning:(  Thank god! for the "accelerator". Now it's never been a secret I have been a huge fan of the Showcase Mode or Road to WrestleMania story mode. Because I'm reliving a bunch of matches, which is great IF your a WWE fanboy.  Well not since Smackdown vs. Raw 2007;) And this years Showcase mode focuses on Stone Cold Steve Austin, which is pretty cool because he no longer wrestles. Aside from that you have the My Career mode on Xbone,Ps4 only. And like last year it's a huge disappointment as well it's allot better then 2k15, but that's not saying much. So I hope your a fan of NXT? Because you will spending allot of time in NXT , before you can even think about "progressing" And thought Baron Blade was a huge "pain the ass"! Well their is a new asshole in 2k16 and his name is Tyler Breeze. And on a personal "note" that has to be the absolute dumbest name for a wrestler in the the entire history of the WWE. You spending allot time with this "douchebag" so buckle your seatbelts people it's going to be a very bumpy ride. This guy right here

You know to say the AI in the game is "cheap" is understatement, when it comes to My Career Mode. Well because when you start out your basically a "nothing" you underpowered:( That means you have to un lock every single ability, and that take forever. In order to prove my point, I played a one on one match in the regular single player mode. As the Honkey Tonk Man vs. Tyler Brezee , and wiped  the floor with him;)  The game offers this, MyPlayer KickStart (PS4™ system and Xbox One Exclusive)
     •    Players will gain instant access to boost created Superstar ratings and attributes in the game’s MyCareer mode;
     •    MyPlayer KickStart will be available for a suggested price of $9.99.

And I highly suggest you get it, unless you want to be stuck in NXT forever:(
See in order to advance to the WWE and the "Authority" , which is where I rather be then "stuck" in NXT:(  You have to become NXT champion, which in this game is pretty much impossible. Because it's so, un balanced. "Sigh" see when a game becomes more frustrating then "fun" I start beginning to lose interest. Now on the other hand IF you one of those "gamers" that enjoys boring and repetitive tasks? You'll think this game is grater then the invention of the wheel:P   I did play a little of the Universe Mode, but that's still basically the same thing. Match after match, they did bring back player injury's and brought  over some of the rivalry stuff. But I really wished I had been able to rent this game, instead of flat out buying it. "Sigh" every single year, like a "sucker" I believe that Bullshit that WWE and 2K sell. And I tell myself "it's going to be good" and every single year I'm disappointed:(  Um, their is a good reason they don't put demos or review copies out. Because 2k knows that this game is going to yet another disappointing p.o.s !  

So theTRUTH!  this is definitely one for the diehard Fanboys, you know the "type" they still think wrestling is "real" and they enjoy boring and repetitive tasks when it comes to gameplay. But IF you have to play? WWE 2K16, I highly recommend you rent this game first. Otherwise, you will highly be disappointed.

And that's the bottom line ! Because, Annihilation Gaming said so:)   
 
 
 
 
For Ben:) Here is what I have for Crackdown 3 so far? No release date so far, but I promise I will keep you up to date.

It´s a shame really. Not saying that this game is going to be bad but come on. There is no good reason for a review embargo except hiding something from the reviewers. Not happy about this.










[–]frostPanic- [score hidden] 3 hours ago 

That isn't correct if I've been keeping up with it right. Pretty much no one got review copies (until a few days ago) except IGN because 2K spent a lot of time with people like CMPulse releasing gameplay footage. So the embargo isn't being held that long it's that no one has a review ready yet.







[–]SSVAV [score hidden] 3 hours ago 

The fact no one got review copies on time doesn't exactly show their confidence in the game either







[–]Clevername3000 [score hidden] an hour ago 

Actually I think it's 2K realizing that they can make a bigger splash by giving release content to Youtubers rather than reviewer's. The game isn't much different than last year's.










[–]frostPanic- [score hidden] 3 hours ago 

They've been pretty candid with gameplay videos and making sure everyone realizes that they know where they went wrong last year. The gameplay was solid but the content was lacking because devs changed due to the THQ death and moving to next-gen.







[–]Das_Sensentier [score hidden] 3 hours ago 

Still, the point is the same. It´s one thing to show some videos of the game but if there are no review copys. That´s just not a very good sign from a consumer standpoint.


 
 


Dealing with trolls is one of the costs of participating in social media. These are the folks who combine a strong opinion with a lack of knowledge. A handful of inflammatory and negative comments can neutralize dozens of positive ones. Here are the top twelve signs that you're dealing with someone who lives under a bridge.

1. Bad Grammar, spelling, and linguistic cues. Trolls don't capitalize the first word of sentences, use periods, or commas. They have a tough time with homophones (words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings). This has nothing to do with gay rights though trolls have strong feelings about this issue too. They use the first-person pronoun ("I") and exclamation marks (!!!!) a lot. They type in ALL CAPS. They write long comments using short, simplistic, and goofy words. Example: "PUHLEZE, your completely WRONG about global warming everyone nose that al gore is just trying to cell books"

2. Entitlement. Trolls exhibit a exorbitant level of entitlement manifested in the belief that their time is valuable, and they should get everything for free. Example: "How dare Facebook run ads or try to monetize my content!!!!" "Why does she post stuff on her page that doesn't interest me and wastes my time???" "Dropbox should be honored that I store my files on its free service." "If Google+ ever has ads, I'm out of there."

3. Lack of first-hand knowledge. People with the strongest opinions often have the least first-hand knowledge. When you encounter the certain and vociferous opinion of trolls, ask them if they have first-hand knowledge or experience. You'll find that trolls just "know" that something is true. Example: "Google+ is a ghost town." Do you use Google+? "No, but I know no one is there."

4. Lousy profiles. The profiles of trolls are usually lousy: out-of-focus and poorly-lit avatars, lack of personal cover and album photos, and incomplete biographical information. These people aren't trying to gain more friends or followers, so they don't care about the quality of their profile. A social-media profile is a window into a person's soul. Example: not forthcoming because I won't give any troll the satisfaction of being called out.

5. Intolerance. Trolls do not embrace diversity. Alternate thoughts, lifestyles, sexual orientations, and operating systems are both wrong and unacceptable. Example: "macs are too espensive and there're just something Steve Jobes ripped off from Xerox Park. i am much productive than any Mac owner"

6. Pre-Copernicus. Trolls missed school the day that science class covered Copernicus's heliocentric model of the universe. Thus, they think that they are the center of the universe. Examples, "He's never left a comment on any of my posts, so he obviously doesn't know how to use social media." "She's never been in a hangout with me." "He's never once asked what I think about this."

7. Perfect information. Trolls expect everyone in the world to know what they did immediately after they did it. (Pre-Copernicus and perfect information is a deadly combination!) If you read the troll's post, you'll see that the person or company in question isn't + or @ mentioned so there's no way for them to know they were mentioned. Example: "i explained why he's wrong in my blog, but he hasn't responded yet."

8. Cowardly. Trolls are cowards and want to attack and pontificate but not constructively discuss. They do not have the courage to say to your face what they say online. They are bullies who are brave in a pack but shrink away from confrontation when they don't have a computer to hide behind. That said, you might find that trolls are perfectly reasonable people in person which is a difficult concept to grok.

9. Legal scholars. Many trolls are legal scholars but every legal scholar isn't a troll. In particular, trolls are experts in selective portions of U.S. constitutional law, U.S. Supreme Court rulings, and Sharia law. They are certain that the founding fathers anticipated the state of technology two hundred years hence. Example: "The Constitutions guarantees that I can protect myself in case a Muslim president sends Seal Team Six after me...im going to grab the AK47 I bought at Walmart and kick their asses"

10. Arithmetically challenged. Trolls are not good at arithmetic, and they oversimplify the facts. When they say "every," the fact is that they should say "some." However, their goal is to exaggerate and aggravate. Example: "Every post is a promotion for her company." "He never responds to anyone." "United flights are always delayed."

11. Holier-than-thou. No matter what you do, it's never enough. No matter what a troll does, it's exemplary. This often happens in the times of tragedy. You post, "An accident occurred today in London." Troll responds, "That's all you can say? I offered my prayers." Really? Only God needs to hear your prayers--do you need to tell the Internet too?

12. American. It pains me to say this, but I've noticed that most trolls are American. We're hung up on manifest destiny and the belief that we should tell everyone how to live, what to think, and what to do--including, of course, other Americans. Example: when a tragedy happens in the U. S., trolls expect the whole world to come to a halt. It's as if an American life is worth more than any other country's.

Now that you can identify trolls, here are five way to handle them:

1. Give them a chance. Respond to a trollish comment and see what the person does. A troll will respond with anger, negativism, and hostility, but people who had a temporary trollish moment will make a reasonable and intelligent response. This happens about 20 percent of the time, but when it does, you can develop a true friendship from a rocky start.

2. Turn off comments in your posts. There's no law that you have to let people comment. When I post a story about abortion, gun control, or Barack Obama, I sometimes turn off comments to (a) reduce my aggravation and (b) frustrate trolls.

3. Ignore their comments. You can let trolls post their comments and simply ignore the comments. You don't have a moral obligation to respond to anything.

4. Delete their comments. Think of this as skimming the detritus off the surface of your swimming pool. If you keep deleting, eventually, trolls may tire of posting.

5. Get rid of them permanently. On Google+, for example, you can delete the comment, block the person from commenting, and report the person to the service. There's a handy Chrome extension called Nuke Comments that will do this in one click.

Go forth and post, and let's see what happens. Remember: don't be a troll yourself, and always assume that people are good until proven bad.

I'm reposting the Jimmy Kimble video on him responding to YouTube gaming.  Because this the point of my latest rant, "condensed gaming" . What is "condensed gaming" , it's what Jimmy Kimble said "it's like going to a fancy restaurant and paying others to eat your food for you.  When he's saying and I'm how stupid it is and how pointless it is.
And it comes down one thing, "self-entitlement"  and people wonder why I hate the internet, YouTube, Twitch. Now not everyone on YouTube is self righteous jerk. My good friend Lifespiler79 :) Is that exception to that rule. So you should go check him out , and listen to what he has to say. You won't be disappointed.
I also talked another trusted friend Nick, and asked his "thoughts" and he told me that kids will  watch others for hours on end,play games.  And it's not about the discovery , it's about I can do it too.  And I'm thinking to myself "what the fuck?!" Now it should be noted, I'm OK with screen shots. Because at least , you can leave it up to your imagination. Now granted in my day, it was gaming magazines galore.  LOL! and gamers always "bragging" about their gaming collection;) Unfortunily, it's only going to get a lot worse:( So what's the whole point of playing a game anymore? Their is none.

2K Sports, with permission
There’s a lot of new content in “WWE 2K16,” from the updated pinning system and improvements in the MyCareer mode, but the visuals have been stepped up tremendously. From better hair and cloth animations to wrestlers grimacing and making faces during taunts and while performing/taking moves, “WWE 2K16” is a hottie from every single angle.
“Graphically we could do a lot more (Than on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360), especially when everyone really responded well to our scanning process.,” Chris Snyder VP of Marketing at 2K Sports told Examiner in an exclusive interview. “We scanned pretty much everyone in the WWE. We continue to scan, we don’t just scan a guy or diva one time say ‘hey, that’s it.’ We’ll go around all year long and continue to scan, continue to scan. Just being able to carry as many modes and wrestlers we have, there’s a lot in this game, where it be Create or Career or the Online experience or the Offline experience or the Stone Cold showcase. There is a tremendous amount in the game, including an entire soundtrack. I think as far as disc space goes, what a lot of people don’t realize is we were maxing out the discs on old-gen and we have a lot more space now with next-gen. There are a lot of areas we haven’t even scratched the surface on yet.”

That’s not to say “WWE 2K15” looked like that nerdy chick from “Big Bang Theory,” but with a year of learning the ins and outs of the PS4 and Xbox One, 2K Sports has begun to hit the sweet spot they are looking for.

“I think we’re on a really good path as far as graphics and presentation goes,” Snyder said. “Those are two things that 2K does really, really well. Presentation in our games, whether that be our games or sports games, they do a great job with that.”

With the majority of time now spent on current gen consoles and fewer limitations in development, Snyder admitted that there’s definite differences between the games on the older consoles, but developing four games on four different consoles doesn’t slow down the creation process.

“There’s parity between the two products except for MyCareer, which is not on old-gen,” Snyder said. “I don’t think old-gen takes away from new-gen development and new-gen doesn’t take away from old-gen development. We do what we can on both, given our limitations with space on discs, hardware and development time. I don’t think there is something that would be enhanced on next-gen if we didn’t have to worry about old-gen.”

WWE 2K16 is currently scheduled for release on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on October 27, 2015, in North America and October 30, 2015, internationally.
