  1. Everybody's Golf (HotShots Golf)

    Heya fellas, feel free to yell at me and lemme know whence you're ready to tee it up and play some HotShots...errr...Everybody's Golf! Sadly I don't even have the game yet but hopefully the Santa the fatman will bring it for Christmas or beforehand since it's my birthday month. So I'll keep checking this subject-it'd be SUPER SWEET to have a DVDR golf tourney now and then. The DVDR World's... On a side note-I thought after Nintendo Wii's virgin effort within the FRISBEE (DISC) GOLF realm, that we'd see at least one decent platform Disc Golf game by now. Anyone agree? Hell....anyone else play Frisbee Golf?
  2. So has anyone played "Everybody's Golf"? It's basically HotShots Golf's latest outing. I was nuts about the original HotShots game-and as each new iteration debuted the more I lost interest. But with several years of abstinence, I've got my 1 Wood ready to abng out the new courses in this new game. Anyone else a fan of HotShots? I also bought the Rory McIlroy game but I just couldn't get into it. I was under the impression it was gonna be a Tiger Woods version of the game but better. It wasn't even close. You're better off firing up the old X-Box 360 or PS3 and popping in older Tiger golfing games.

    I wish we had the option to bring BATISTA out in a wheelchair(with crutches, mind you)...and he could relive his best gimmick, the brilliant "GIMME BACK MY SPOTLIGHT!!!" run.
  4. WWE 2K18

    And finally in some WWE gaming news... -- The following was released by 2K today: The goal every year for MyCAREER in WWE 2K is enabling our fans to live out their dreams as WWE Superstars. This is no easy task, as everyone has a different vision for his or her WWE Superstar. We pay close attention to this vision, and at the end of each WWE 2K iteration, we take a long and hard look at what our fans want in future MyCAREER offerings. The two things that stood out most to us following WWE 2K17 were the lack of free-roaming backstage and a shift back to telling a compelling story through self-created WWE Superstars (also known by fans as MyPLAYERs. So for us, those were the goals this year. Story and Progression In WWE 2K18, we wanted MyCAREER to focus on a strong story narrative. We felt the addition of backstage could afford us some cool new ways to experience a day in the life of a WWE Superstar. For us to accomplish this, we needed to develop unique and compelling storylines that are no longer shared from Universe Mode so the journeys that MyPLAYERs go through are unique and fresh. This year, you’ll have two very different paths you can take en route to your own WrestleMania moment (note: you will be able to play past that WrestleMania moment; your story won’t end there). Here are the two paths: Company Man – Going down the Company Man path means you’re all about helping the general managers (GMs) get what they want out of the roster on any given show. This involves conspiring with the GMs backstage, ambushing other WWE Superstars in the locker room or during their interviews and basically doing whatever it takes to maintain that GM’s power, both in the ring and backstage. The rewards are hefty, though! Continue helping the GM succeed, and you’ll gain access to awesome upgrades, such as the ability to orchestrate a run-in to help you win a match. You can also access Vince McMahon’s office to lobby for match card changes and title rematches. Fan Favorite – Being a Fan Favorite means you don’t play the whole company game and you’re all about putting on the best matches and promos. You have a locker room full of WWE Superstars and Legends backstage. This route involves earning their respect by taking on different match types – night-in and night-out. You’ll also have WWE Superstars test your in-ring aptitude and skills on the microphone, but if you succeed at this, you will earn the whole locker room’s respect – and with that comes some perks. WWE Legends are always backstage during events. If you earn their respect, they’ll start to give you in-ring bonuses for your matches and promos. If you become the complete package – the guy who can walk the walk and talk the talk like Stone Cold Steve Austin or John Cena – you’ll be able to have your own customized WWE Championship or Universal Championship. This honor is only given to the best of the best. In short, it’s ultimately your choice how your MyPLAYER’s road to WrestleMania will unfold. We definitely put a bunch of twists and turns to make it feel like it’s your own story, and we hope you’ll be surprised by a few of the WWE Superstars and events that will pop up along the way! Free-Roaming Backstage This is something fans have wanted for a while, and it’s something we have wanted to do for a while as well. With a MyCAREER laced with storylines that involve both in-ring and out-of-ring action, it made sense to bring a free-roaming backstage into MyCAREER. We wanted MyCAREER to be experiential this year. We wanted players to spend more time interacting with WWE Superstars and supporting personnel to better experience all their unique personalities. Rather than looking at menus to determine who you should align with or who you want to make your rival, you can simply go talk to them or ambush them backstage. Want an interview with Renee Young? Simply go up to her and ask for an interview. Don’t like the WWE Superstar she’s interviewing? Go up to him during live TV and interrupt that interview. There will be no shortage of personalities backstage, from WWE Superstars and Legends to GMs, apparel tailors and more. Sometimes the interactions will also present side quests that are separate from the main storylines. Think of them as mini-stories that aren’t as involved or crucial to your Road to WrestleMania. For example, some WWE Superstars might ask you to ambush a rival or go toe to toe with them in a promo. Updated Promos Last year, we added promos to MyCAREER for the first time. While we were happy to finally let players get on the microphone, we knew we could deliver more in the second year of designing the promo feature in WWE 2K18. The two clear improvements we set out to accomplish were making WWE Superstars feel more like themselves and improving the scoring system, as it constricted players from telling the promos they wanted to tell. It was clear that some of the more unique WWE Superstars needed to be represented better when cutting a promo in MyCAREER. WWE Superstars like Undertaker and Enzo Amore come to mind when discussing this. We created nearly 200 new animations – spread across multiple WWE Superstars – to make them feel more like themselves while on the microphone. You’ll notice Shinsuke Nakamura moving in that unique way that he does while talking. Bray Wyatt will fidget maniacally while preaching on the microphone. The New Day will dance their way to the ring instead of walking. We wanted promos against these WWE Superstars with unique personalities to feel very special. We wanted your MyPLAYER to really feel like you’re going face to face with them in a battle of words. One of the more fun components of promos was the combo system, so we looked to shift scoring to focus on that rather than trying to find the best fan favorite or bad guy answer. Last year’s scoring model was very rigid and made players feel like they had to make choices they didn’t want to make in order to get high marks. This year, rather than trying to score the highest value, we wanted to score players on promo cohesion. This means as a player, you’ll be able to pick the point you want to make while on the mic. After making that point, you’ll be scored based on how well you stick to that point. You no longer have to worry about if this is what you should say as a crowd favorite or a bad guy. Promo this year is about saying what you want to say and sticking to your word. MyCAREER Invasion With the addition of free-roaming backstage, naturally we started thinking about the possibilities for MyCAREER invasion. Just like last year, your friends’ MyPLAYERs can populate your MyCAREER save. However, this year, you’ll actually see them backstage. They act just like any WWE Superstars you’ll see backstage: you can talk to them, pick them up as tag partners, get side quests involving them and even ambush them. It’s up to you what role your friends’ MyPLAYERs will have in your MyCAREER. In closing, we are looking forward to letting you try out all this new stuff in this year’s version of MyCAREER in WWE 2K18. A lot of hard work went into making this year’s MyCAREER feel different from previous iterations, and we hope you all enjoy it! - Ramelle Ballesca, WWE 2K18 MyCareer Designer, Visual Concepts

  13. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    So where 'd this "Firepro" video come from? Does anyone have a link ,etc? It almost looks goofy._. Needless to say I was a huge FP fan, bought a Sega Saturn and had it modded to play Japanese games...and spent all that cash plus the $100 bucks I spent on the Firepro Wrestling game itself. I battled every tag team and singles wrestler on the way to the belts. I was obsessed and spent many hours in my quest. Itfelt great when I finally won. So I decided to take a break before I began defending the belts, and one of my best buddies wanted to borrow the system and play for himself . I agreed and allowed him to borrowit. BIG MISTAKE ; A few weeks later I had the itch to play again...but my friend avoided me .It tooks weeks before he finally returned my system. I was so stoked!!! I rushed home from work, hooked everything up and...WHERE WAS MY SAVES?!!! I started the Sega again, no luck. I smacked the back of the Saturn, still no luck . Hell I even tried the old Nintendo "blow into machine trick". Nothing worked ! Come to find out, it wasn't even my system!Yeah...imagine that .WTF! All that work lost, and he never said why/how my system disappeared .I finally got him back years later , when I hit a drunken, running Awesome-Bomb onto a tree root while at a party. Good Times!
