[Extremely Rock voice] Finally! WWE has COME BACK to PC

Like a brutally booked handicap match, WWE 2K16 launched a bit shorthanded this year. It released on the usual platforms of PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, but a PC version was nowhere to be found. Publisher 2K obviously wanted to fo...

Four of the best Divas won't be in WWE 2K16, and the reason why isn't very good

WWE is in the middle of something of a #DivasRevolution right now. The movement's aim is to give women wrestlers more of the spotlight to showcase their abilities. It's working to varying degrees -- usually fluctuating based on how serious ...

It's Fight Owens Fight with WWE 2K16's latest roster reveal and entrance video

WWE newcomer Kevin Owens has already had spats with John Cena, Cesaro, and Michael Cole, but he won't find any of them when he gets to the bottom of this ramp. That's because his entrance video for WWE 2K16 is in NXT where it's more p...

WWE 2K16's pre-order bonus is The Terminator

When WWE 2K16 hits later this year, it'll have a pre-order bonus in tow -- The Terminator. Yep, that's the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger T-800 character. Evidently the game will have two T-800s in tow, with one modeled after the first...

Glass breaks, music hits, and Stone Cold walks out as WWE 2K16 cover star

As 2K is wont to do on occasion, the cover athlete of WWE 2K16 isn't a current full-time WWE Superstar. Well, he's current in that he hosts one of the best wrestling podcasts today, but he doesn't step into the squared circle anymore ...

Developer Visual Concepts and wrestler Seth Rollins have a lot in common. They're both the architects and the future of the WWE. The only difference is that Visual Concepts handles the 2K video game side of things, not the actual wrest...

It's about to get weird in here: WWE 2K15 supports modding on PC

WWE 2K15 wasn't the best effort of recent titles in the wrestling series. But, a current hot topic in the games community might change that and make it a better game, at least to some degree. Or, everything's just going to get real wei...

Minor league wrestler accidentally outs WWE 2K16's existence

After taking a proverbial steel chair to the back with WWE 2K15, the wrestling series seems poised to make a return to the squared circle. That's not shocking in its own right, but what's interesting is that 2K Games didn't get a chance to ...

WWE Immortals looks like Mortal Kombat/Injustice meets wrestling

I'm not into wrestling but, conceptually, I'm feeling WWE Immortals. It's a fighting game from Mortal Kombat studio NetherRealm and Phosphor Games that imagines real-world wrestlers in a fantastical alternate universe. Think Injustice: Go...
