I used to think that it was just nostalgia, screwing with my memory. But when I did a side-by-side comparison, there was no comparison at all.
Different publisher, same developer. 2K Sports picked up the WWE franchise from THQ during the bankrupted publisher's firesale back in Japan. The game revealed its cover art on Monday night, dropping this trailer later.
The Rock will be featured on the cover of WWE 2K14, the first edition of the series to be published by 2K Sports. The game releases in November.
In an interview published this morning by ESPN, 2K Sports and World Wrestling Entertainment discussed their exclusive, five-year contract arising from THQ's bankruptcy and dissolution, and said the next WWE professional wrestling simulation should launch during its traditional fall release window this year.
As was rumored during the breakup and selloff of THQ, Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of 2K Sports, will take over the license to make WWE video games. Documents filed today in court say Take-Two, THQ and Yuke's, the Japanese company which developed the wrestling games for THQ, have come to an agreement…
If there's truth in advertising, then three weeks ago, 2K Sports was looking at changing its name to the singular form. Major League Baseball 2K was justifiably believed to be a dead series; the company had canceled online support for legacy titles like All-Pro Football 2K8, College Hoops 2K8 and Top Spin 4. Outside…

THQ has already announced its intention of making UFC Undisputed 3 a tournament ready fighter. In this video they show off how that combat system will look. After watching this video, I'm not going to argue with any of these guys.
UFC Undisputed may be a sports simulation, but the series has roots in fighting games, says the game's producer, and UFC 3 will pay tribute to those roots when the game releases in January.
UFC Undisputed 3 represents more than just THQ's abandonment of the mixed martial arts simulation series as an annualized franchise, it's the game designed to welcome more virtual fighters into the fold. It's a game kinder to new players, but more brutal on its in-game MMA stars.
Develop magazine has released the 2010 Develop 100, an annual listing of the most successful game developers in the industry. Who took the number one slot this year? I'll give you a hint: Nintendo.
You can read here a wrestling game review, written by a lapsed wrestling fan (me!). But first, I challenge Flower fans and Ico lovers to find a better gaming subject for their college thesis than Smackdown Vs. Raw 2010.
Cardinal Arc Portable is coming to North America! YUKE's Company of America have announced that a PSP version of the hit Japanese PS2 title Cardinal Arc: The Neverland Card War is coming our way this October. The card-based strategy RPG revolves around the Dominators, wielders of Neverland's Spectral Cards. You play…
Hungry for hot dodgeball action on your Xbox 360 yet completely turned off by the concept of Pirates VS Ninjas? Yuke's Double D Dodgeball is a decidedly retro take on the sport, with simplistic graphics belying relatively deep, strategic gameplay. There are a variety of different character types, each with unique…
