WWE 2K18 Blog Post Reveals Some Features For The Game

The release of the latest WWE game is something I look forward to every year, even when I have lovely followers who mock me for my love of play fighting with so-called sweaty men in underpants (these same people enjoy superheroes who wear tight fitting lycra, but I never judge them).  I love both the drama and entertainment side of this thing we now call sports entertainment, but games in recent years have slowly seemed to come to a standstill when it comes bringing new things to the table.

It's fair to say that WWE 2K games have been stuck in limbo for the past few releases while promising to improve in key areas, the game has just become somewhat of the FIFA version of wrestling games. As a fan of both the games and product though I'm always hopeful that this year will be the year they get everything right and make the game fans want to see.

A blog post on the official website recently spoke about some of the features coming to 2K18, with popular YouTubers and influencers also doing a grand job of getting this information and making it so unclear what was revealed that it hurt my tiny little brain. So ignoring all the videos that made a total hash of this news, here are a few things I took from the blog post that peaked my interest.

Fact One: WWE 2K18 will see a new commentary team this year, with King dropped and Corey Graves and Byron Saxton (can't be all good news) joining Michael Cole at the announcer's table. If this means not having to put up with Jerry Lawler telling Dad Jokes, I'm all for it. Would have preferred JR over Cole mind you.

Fact Two: This year the game will also be seeing a brand new graphics engine which promises spectacular new lighting, more realistic skin and also new camera effects. If this means superstars and matches looking better than ever before then this can only be good news for the returning player. As with every WWE game release though we are yet to see any gameplay footage to see what this all means for the game, so I can't get too excited just yet.

Fact Three: While last year had a great big hole in it thanks to Showcase mode missing, this year we at least get a new mode to play with. The Road to Glory Mode will give players the chance to take their My Player characters on a quest to qualify for WWE pay-per-view events against other players. No more information on this at the moment, but sounds promising.

You can check out the full blog post with all the above facts and even more information I've not spoken about over on the official website by clicking here. WWE 2K18 is set for release on October 17th with the standard edition, with the game also having Deluxe edition which gives you extra goodies like the season pass and also getting to play the game from October 13th.  A Collector’s Edition is also coming, but no news on what physical extras this version will offer just yet.

Review - Venom Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack

If you thought my last review about a charging dock must have been hard work to make an interesting read, how do you think I feel doing it for a Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack? You have already read (I hope) my thoughts on my previous way of getting all that power to my controller of many worlds, with this one being less shorter than that just because this pack is a lot more basic when it comes to what you get in the box. It's also worth noting that for a few quid more you can hook yourself up with the docking station version of this pack if you wish, so be sure to check out links to both products at the end of this post (neither of which will give me anything if ordering off. Just so you know). I've dealt with Venom a few times in the past when it comes to reviewing their items. With me being lucky (depending on how you look at it) enough to getting my hands on some of their headsets and reviewing them elsewhere in the past. The one worry I had spending some money on a Ven

HXR Plays - Overwatch Opening Intro + Reaper Gameplay

Today I start a little series on here where I have a little play with 1 of the 21 characters available in the massively addictive game that is Overwatch. Today sees me show off the opening intro, as well as playing a game with the character known as Reaper. He falls into the offense side when it comes to character selection, and is great if you enjoy a bit of right in your face combat. Reaper like the other 20 characters in the game has a few specials to play with outside of his standard weapon. Not only do his standard Hellfire shotguns pack a mean punch at close quarters, but he also has Wraith Form (invincible for a short few seconds but not able to shoot), Shadow Step, which is a fancy way of saying teleporting from one place to another, and finally we have his charged special known as Death Blossom. This special sees Reaper spin around for a few seconds while unloading his deadly shotguns, killing anyone who is stupid enough to get in the way. More gameplays on the way wi

Earthlock: Festival of Magic (XB1) & Forza Horizon (360) Now Available With Games With Gold

You can now download the two brand new choices seen in the title above on your Xbox One and 360, as late last night they were added to Games With Gold section of your console. I'm really keen to get digging back into Forza Horizon myself, but Earthlock is always worth a look, as with it being free you don't really have nothing to lose. Here are both the trailers and links for you to go get downloading. Let me know what you think of either game in the comments below or over on the Twitter & Facebook accounts.
