THQ.. What are you doing! WWE Pay-per-moves incoming.

So the other day on a different site, I read about something new THQ has planned for WWE 13.

This news is pretty brutal, and I wish I had kept the link because I can't find it now, but anyways, apparently in WWE 13 there will be special moves that wrestlers use which will only be available as paid DLC. Not only is that bad enough, but players will have to wait a few weeks after the release for them to come out?

This is terrible because in all previous wrestling games, moves were all available from the start. Not just that but these are signature moves that these wrestlers are known for and if you are playing the game you will want to use them as your favorite wrestler.

If this goes well for THQ, it will be bad news for all because other companies will take notice for sure. If this goes bad for THQ, then that is also not good. THQ is a great company and I love their games, and am dying for South Park: The Stick of Truth in 2013.

I don't know what the budget for the game was compared to previous versions.. but from the commercials run every break on RAW and Smackdown it must be far less than the older games. The graphics are ok, but seem strange in a way I just cannot explain, and the wrestlers move around a bit clunky, and the ropes are strange.. It might be a rumor.. but I heard that this may be THQ's last WWE game, or Yuke's last one. I am not sure if that's true or not.. but damn..

I don't know what to expect, but I hope this is not going to become normal.. Yuck.

About Skid Row Trashone of us since 11:36 AM on 08.24.2011

Hi, my name is Skid Row Trash. I have been gaming and creating add-ons and mods for games since I was 11. I'm 30 now, and I still love gaming. My first gaming system was a NES, followed by a Sega Genesis. After that, I got the Sega CD. I think I am one of the few that actually enjoyed the hell out of that system. I had to replace my Sega Genesis once because of problems, and had to replace my Sega CD 3 times, and repair it once. My first computer ever was a 386 with a huge 40mb hard drive, dos, and eventually windows. Started out playing games like wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, and the list really is endless.. Civ 1..

After this I got a SNES. What a fun system. This was soon after followed by a Nintendo 64, and eventually a PS1 and Gamecube. I had to exchange my PS1 once because it broke. After that I had a PS2, and an Xbox. I loved both those systems so much. I had to replace my PS2 3 times, and my Xbox 3 times due to hardware problems.

These days, I am gaming on Xbox 360, and PC. I don't bother with PS anymore because I have large hands and their analog sticks are way too close. I find both thumbs fighting each when trying to play anything on a playstation these days and much prefer the improved analog stick setup that Xbox 360 has.

I am currently on my 6th Xbox 360, and have Kinect as well.

My first one died from disc tray problems.
My second one I had Nyko Intercooler which actually melted into my xbox 360 and the 2 seperate things became 1 single entity.
My 3rd Xbox was a red ring of death
my 4th Xbox eventually wouldn't even turn on.
my 5th xbox still sorta works, but the disk tray takes like 40 tries to open and takes more and more time each attempt. Also when the door is closed it things the door is open, and thus I can't launch any games.
my 6th Xbox 360 was to replace my last one, but at the same time I wanted to have the most recent so I got a kinect package. Also, this is the first time I have had the ability to use HDMI with my Xbox 360, because all 5 xboxes I had before they kept sending me old units with only Component video.

anyways, I am a real big time gamer and like to try all games (except for sports because well.. sports are weak).
