    Post Cyber Got Me....

    `

    OK, Finally bought the game thanks to Best Buy's Cyber Monday not including Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, but having WWe2K14 instead.

    I picked it up yesterday and first thing I did (after noticing I was shorted the Ultimate Warrior Download) when we got home was flip the cover to D*Bry.... so mission accomplished there.

    Decided to sleep and wait until I had more time to mess with it this morning.
    As I am typing this, I am attempting my 7th try at updating the game so I can play it.

    So.... guess more to come later.

    Thumbs up Almost there....

    `

    All right... 8th time seems to be the charm.

    Remembered that last years game and the Media Server didn't get along, so disabled it and it's on the 2nd part of the Download.

    Almost there....

    10 was the charm, it seems.

    Got game title screen, going to play around a bit, maybe a nap....


    ________________________________

    Silver Lining: Guess it is good that it is a know fix, even though it was for last years game & still an issue with this years.
    Still, got my fingers crossed that 2K took charge of this.

    Unhappy Slow going

    `

    On 2nd Match of Wrestlemania & Announcers already:

    1.) Called Andre' the Giant = Big Show
    2.) Talked about clearly seeing Hogan's ribs wrapped up, where there are no wraps.

    ________________________________

    Noticed the old School WWF logo, minus the F.... looks weird having grown up with it.

    Definitely having a nap after this match.

    Talking Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more....

    `

    Nap turned into a sleep, but am game to get back in the game.

    Got to knock out 30 Years of Wrestlemania, & maybe purchase the season pass, so I can get on to creating my characters and make proper use of CC.

    Arrow Time To Pay The Piper & not in Coconuts....

    `

    What I have learned/remembered from playing through the first part of 30 Years of Wrestlemania
    - Hulkamania runs wild -:


    1.) Hogan without Piper is dull
    2.) As kids - When my Brothers and I Wrestled.... We had Body Slam Contests & I demanded a 5-count. (Don't try this at home, rarely ever sinks in as a kid.)
    3.) I miss the big men in Wrestling like Big John Studd, King Kong Bundy, André, & Yokozuna
    4.) Miss Elizabeth was AWeeeeeeee-SOME!
    5.) I can not watch & listen to the Macho Man without seeing & hearing Jay Lethal
    6.) The Ultimate warrior makes as much sense today as he did back-in-the-day

    All in all though, not a bad outing.... but as a Piper fan, I will be kicking Hogan's derrier up and down the ring as much as possible.

    Unhappy Crickets....

    `

    Well, been playing off and on most of the day....
    Up to Cena vs. Big Show and the crowd has gone silent.

    They make noise for the big "Pops" but nothing else.
    Time to get some sleep and maybe finish it up tomorrow.

    More progress made and then halted, with a black screen after the HHH v. Randy Orton match.... with music playing.

    Exclamation Deja Vu

    `

    Whoa!
    That "little" glitch sent me back to the John Cena v. Edge v. Big Show match.
    gonna have to redo both matches again, to catch up.

    Might have to report this one....

    `

    Alright, may be stuck with more than repeating a few Matches.

    Redid the Triple Threat and it said I got all achievements already, though only 1 shows unlocked
    and the HHH v. Orton match will not unlock.

    Hard reset time, I guess.... since soft didn't work.

    OK
    Forward ever, backward never.... well maybe not never, but hopefully only this one time twice.
    Or is it, thrice?

    Redid the Triple Threat again, again, and went to HHH v Orton without going to Timeline Menu and seems to be back on track again.
    I think it was more going directly to it, than the Hard Reset.

    Time to try, hopefully, progressing more.

    Thumbs up Figured it out, glitch not as bad as it looked.

    `

    Duh!

    Now I see what is wrong.
    25 has 2 events....
    2nd Trophy was for HHH v. Orton.
    Guess I redid Triple threat twice for nothing....
    - VERY CONFUSING -

    Question Why Rock, WHY!?

    `

    Up to Miz v. Cena and getting the real first noticeable glimpse of the Rock.... still trying to figure out why he was on the Cover of the game outside of increased sales when he's not represented much in it so far and had not been on TV since the reveal of the game.... still to this day.

    Time to buckle down and finish off this Wrestlemania stuff.

    Thumbs up Finally, the Champ is HERE!

    `

    Well, everything just went right in that last match of Cena v Rock.

    Hit him once outside the ring with an AA, then reversed his Finisher twice in the ring after he reversed mine, than hit the AA & pinned.

    Lightbulb The Ups & Downs, unmentioned Glitches, and so forth - It's done, hopefully.

    `

    So guess it is time for the final verdict and wrap up this one man's
    Chronicle of the 30 Years of Wrestlemania experience
    :

    .

    .



    Outside of the glitches, especially the major one leading to the confusion of just what happened & what to do afterwards, it was not a bad run.


    The suggestion I have made to THQ/Yukes for years, still stands here:

    ==> . Get a Wrestling Historian to consult on these games. . <==

    There were so many little things, and plenty big things, that were just obviously wrong to anyone who half watched/watches WWF/WWe.
    Surprisingly, a few could have been easily caught just by reading the script and/or watching the videos that were included with the Storyline of 30 Years of Wrestlemania.

    .

    .


    As a Gamer though, this is a good game:

    The pick up and play aspect, as with previous years, is above par.
    The glitches, though more prevalent than about any game I have played for so short of a time, are forgettable/forgivable
    The "Scripted" aspect of the game, though short, had more story in little snippets than most games do after 20 hours of play.

    .

    .


    Don't get me wrong:

    This is a fair weather Wrestling Fans game.
    It will come down to CC & what we do with it more than what was put into it, just like the previous years.
    It is a sports game, based in the world of Wrestling Entertainment.
    Just as a NFL (Football) game is nothing without a run for the Super Bowl, this game is nothing without a run for Wrestlemania.
    How you get there is up to you, as no one character is absurdly dominant to another.... The lowest ranked Wrestler can take out the highest rank freely and that is why it's fun to play this.
    You can make the shortest, scrawniest, weakest Wrestler and with enough time and effort become the Main Event and Champion at Wrestlemania.... It is the dream of many a person who has ever wanted to Wrestle for real.

    * So, take your Nobody or favorite Wrestler, become a somebody, & hope beyond all hope that 2K keeps this year's game functional. *

    Cool I Knew It.... Woo Woo Woo

    `

    Woo Woo Woo, You Know It

    First try at Beat the Streak and Zack Ryder pulls it off in under 10 minutes.
    That was anti-climactic to say the least.

    Don't know about you, but I kinda enjoy reading this guy's views about the game in this private thread. Oh, and PawPaw_K, were you on the old THQ boards? 'Cause I remember (although I wasn't very active there, I went by M4sterJimmy), a guy there that posted in a very similar manner to you and would say short but meaningful stuff.

    Hi PawPaw,

    Using a forum as a personal log of events while playing the game doesn't really work well in a community setting. Topics should be created to promote discussion with others.

    You can review our forum guidelines here.

    Thanks!
