The THQ Effect
This is pretty much my reaction whenever a new WWE game is announced. I start out rolling my eyes when the details are first announced, but by the time it comes out I’m fully drinking the Kool Aid. WWE 13’s emphasis on the Attitude Era (according to IGN’s article) has me wondering if they’ll even be able to recreate that time period without the likes of Kurt Angle, the Dudleys, or the Hardy Boyz (assuming they won’t use wrestlers working for other promotions). Other announced changes like the improved audio and the ability to change the pacing of a fight has me feeling indifferent right now, but I’m sure I’ll come around.
