Today, 2K announced that WWE 2K15 will follow its previous iterations and indeed have a season pass. 2K says it plans on revealing the specifics at a later date. However, a post on the Gamestop website provided […]
Mojang confirmed recently that the PS Vita version of Minecraft is in final testing stages at Sony. So, gamers that have a Vita and have been waiting for Minecraft to hit the system so that they can get into all the fun, do not have to wait much longer.
Although we still don’t have a specific release date, Mojang did state that the Vita version will include everything in the PS3 version, as well as online play. Even better, is that anyone who already owns the PS3 version can get the Vita version for free. Gamers can also buy both versions for $19.99 and as a special bonus it is cross-save compatible, which also includes DLC bought on either platform.
Well, the good news is that if you don’t want to wait and have a PS4, you can buy the PS4 disc version on October 3 in Europe and October 7 in the US, or buy it digitally right now.
Earlier today, a livestream presented by IGN and WWE was shown on Twitch and Youtube to reveal the WWE 2K15 roster. The event was hosted by Renee Young and WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and featured current superstars WWE World Champion John Cena, United States Champion Sheamus, Cesaro, and Roman Reigns. The event also featured Hulk Hogan and Sting as they discussed future opponents and moments from the past. During all this talking they revealed a bigger portion of the 2K15 roster. The following is the current list of 59 superstars, divas, and legends in the game.

At the bottom of the page it says “full roster coming soon” so it looks like there will be more roster members revealed at a later date. There will also be a slew of new superstars added to the game via DLC, which also have not been revealed at the moment. The only other thing that was revealed during the event was that NXT will be the official starting place of the “My Career Mode.” So, it seems there may be a NXT roster added to the game as well.
WWE 2K15 Releases on the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, & Xbox 360 on October 28, 2014. We will have more about the game as the information comes. To see the roster in picture forms and basic information about the game checkout the official WWE 2K15 website
2K recently revealed the first details on two of the major modes in this year’s edition of their WWE game. WWE 2K15 will feature a main story mode called “2K Showcase” and they will also bring a WWE version of the popular “My Career” mode over from the NBA 2K franchise as well.
Let’s start with 2K Showcase, instead of going over huge eras of WWE like we’ve seen in the past two WWE games (Attitude Era mode and 30 Years of Wrestlemania respectively.) 2K wants to bring things down to a personal level, while not also going back to the “Road to Wrestlemania” type stories of the past. 2K has chosen to take two historic WWE rivalries, think Austin vs. Rock or Hogan vs. Savage, and give you a longer story arc. Sort of like a truncated version of the week to week minutia of the feud. However, 2K has yet to reveal which two rivalries they have chosen, or if perhaps they could add more via DLC, which would be a fantastic way to add more variety to DLC, then just getting more wrestlers or divas.
Nothing specific has been revealed about the WWE version of “My Career” mode just yet. We do know it should follow a similar path to what occurs in the NBA 2K games. The player would create a character and then begin in WWE’s developmental brand NXT. Through winning matches and completing goals given to you by “The Authority” or perhaps even Vince McMahon himself, you would eventually gain a call-up to WWE. I would hope that the player will be given plenty of choices and options as to how long or short they want their stay in NXT to be, because that is a part of the NBA 2K career mode that is severely lacking. You basically play one game in NBA 2K and you get drafted. Considering that the WWE’s call-up system is a lot more complex, it would make sense for WWE’s career mode to follow the same protocol.
However, there is one important thing to note, the WWE “my career” mode will not be available to gamers who only own a Xbox 360 or PS3. This mode is exclusive to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.
I’ll be honest, I cried foul about that announcement at first, but if you aren’t going to pull what Ubisoft is doing with Assassin’s Creed, you have to give people an incentive to buy the next-gen version of the game, besides just pretty graphics.
From the one screenshot revealed so far, the PS4 and Xbox One versions look to be shaping up nicely. Aside from just upgrading pixel counts, 2K has spent 50 hours motion capturing all of the WWE Superstars finishers and signature moves, which comes down to five times more animation data than what was in WWE 2K14 last year. 2K has also spruced up the commentary for this year as well. They have recorded four more hours of lines to help alleviate some of the repetition seen in previous WWE games. Although, I’m sure much of that has to do with the career mode probably being pretty lengthy too.
WWE 2K15 releases on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, & PS3 on October 28, 2014. We will have more information in the coming days and weeks.

Yesterday, Electronic Arts announced that US Men’s National Team Captain and Seattle Sounders FC star midfielder, Clint Dempsey, will appear on the North American cover of FIFA 15, along with Lionel Messi. The reveal was made at the start of the Sounders FC vs. Tottenham Hotspur friendly and it will be the first time that an American has appeared on the game’s cover since 2011.
Dempsey, 31, led the US Men’s National Team to a heroic performance in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and is one of the best American soccer players in history. He made records during the tournament as well, netting the fifth fastest goal of all time with a strike in the first 29 seconds of the USA vs. Ghana opener, and became the first American to score goals in three consecutive World Cups.
Clint Dempsey voiced his opinion on being included in the yearly EA soccer simulation.
“It’s an amazing opportunity in my career to be on the cover for FIFA 15, a game that has played a big role in growing the popularity of the sport in America.” “To join the class of other elite athletes who have appeared on previous covers is very humbling and I am extremely grateful for this honor.”
FIFA 15’s big grab this year is bringing the emotion of soccer to life. The crowds will bring intensity to the matches with chanting and cheering, using Dynamic Presentation, commentators will be able to tell the story of the game, and all 22 players will be connected on the pitch by Emotional Intelligence. This allows the players to react to opponents and teammates within the context, and relative to the narrative of the match.
FIFA 15 is available for pre-order now, and will release worldwide in September on PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. EA will also release versions of FIFA 15 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita sometime this Fall.
One game that really profited today from all of these press conferences is Tom Clancy’s The Division. Not only did it have a nice chunk of time at Microsoft’s press conference, but Ubisoft showed off what could perhaps be an opening cinematic for the game, which sets up the story. From the time lapse to the blood coming out of the snow and even the appearance of one of the vigilantes protecting another character, it was really well done.
The gameplay showed off a barren, snowy New York City where a vigilante group is trying to slowly “take back NY” from all of these other groups that seem to be just looking out for themselves. The team aspect we’ve come to expect from Tom Clancy games is front and center in “The Division” as we see plenty of chatter trying to plan out how to take back their base from one of the enemy groups. Here’s the newest gameplay trailer for Tom Clancy’s The Division.
Even though this game was recently delayed until 2015, I think Ubisoft did a great job making sure this game comes off as a big deal at this year’s E3.

Today, EA announced at the end of their own press conference that the Battlefield Hardline beta will be available today. PS4 and PC players who already have Battlefield 4 will be able to sign up for the beta on their systems or by visiting the Battlefield website. EA has even provided an incentive for PS3 and Xbox 360 players to sign up for the beta as well, by promising them extra content on October 21 when the game releases. A weapon camo/skin, a weapon sight, some additional Battlefield Hardline content and also a unique Battlefield 4 dog tag.
Here’s some gameplay from the beta to keep you entertained…
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot appeared at the end of the Ubisoft press conference to announce, one more game. Considering Ubisoft already showed off plenty of Tom Clancy’s The Division, it was surprising to see another Tom Clancy announced today. However, when you factor in that it has been six years since we’ve seen a Rainbow Six game, it makes much more sense. Even though it was pre-alpha multiplayer footage, the gameplay shown was pretty impressive. Robbers are shown boarding up rooms and covering up windows to prevent people from trying to save a female hostage. The Rainbow Six team constantly plans how to get into the building and take out the robbers, while also trying to save the woman. What ensues was hectic, explosive, and pretty awesome as well. Sorry, but I can’t do the footage justice with words.
Here is the gameplay trailer:
The only thing announced after the trailer was shown, was that Ubisoft will be doing a LIVE demo at the Ubisoft booth, but there was no announcement about a release time frame at all. I would imagine it will be on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
