Amazing OT. I'd love to jump back into a WWE game as it's been years since I properly played one. There's always so many reasons not to though. Mainly Yukes.

Yeah, he walked out before Raw on Monday and apparently asked for his release. Not been granted yet though, so he can still return.

Without snark, I honestly believe the career mode changes with backstage free-roaming and the like could fix it. They have the multiplayer career end-game which likely will be a shitty grind, but I'm hoping by adding that,t hey remove the grind from the normal career and just make it a 10-20 hour thing or whatever.

According to Jericho on his podcast, Shane actually does lay those punches in. They look like shit, but he actually hits them, which is double lol.

I remember Bret Hart on a podcast describing Shane’s punches like he was picking lint off someone’s shirt, maybe because he’s the bosses son no one has the guts to tell him how bad it looks

Jericho said in the same podcast that when Shane was tagged in at Survivor Series he's like a ball of energy and just does everything fast, so he hit a couple of punches on him, then that back elbow hit Jericho pretty square and it hurt, so Jericho put him on the mat hard and told him to slow it down.

Weirdly, the crowd pops for it when he starts them though. Even if it does look bad, they probably just think "Well this half-filled arena is into it so I'll keep doing it".

I mean, you don't need Bret Hart to see those punches he throws looks like shit. All you need are functioning eyes. They are terrible

Shane did his own mo-cap this year

I wish they'd at least get everyone to mo-cap their own entrances, every year they say "most realistic and authentic" which is fucking hilarious considering what we actually get.

Probably unfeasible with the amount to do and the guys schedules. But even still, I've seen 100 times better hand animation in plenty of titles.

I think a lot of it is just that people are starting with Braun V Big Show for some reason. People like them hosses I guess.
