Going through all the ratings, including the Legends, I can confirm that Reigns is indeed rated higher than everyone at 95 Overall. Definitely on the nose.

Played a fun singles match as Shinsuke vs Killian Dain with all of Sanity. I hit a Kinshasa, and the ref was pulled out of the ring during the count. Then Nikki Cross gets up on the apron and pulls the rope down as I run at her, and gets ejected from the match. Dain took it to me and came dangerously close to a pin. I got another Kinshasa, go for the pin, and Alexander Wolfe breaks up the pin and starts beating me up. The match is called on a Disqualification. It all felt really authentic and was frustratingly fun. Easy to try and circumnavigate one annoying manager, but when there's 3 of them chomping at the bit, you really feel it. Very enjoyable.

Good to hear your impressions about the game. And it's great they acted the way heel stables should. I might have the game fully downloaded next Friday so damn it! :lol:

Can you guys confirm if the face import tool is still in-game? I might bring back myself as MyPlayer.

They're really finding ways to shove Reigns down our throats, eh? If any, I'd have AJ Styles with the highest rating among everybody on the current roster.

Oddly, Cactus Jack '98 doesn't have his proper entrance music. Not sure what happened there.

The Community Creations being so good so early this year are the reason I decided to buy.

Always wanted that Kanto Terror name! I want to PM PWR and tell them to have a stable of 10 guys and have Kanto Terror as the leader so they can be called Kanto 10.

Had a couple of matches and I think it flows well enough. Still catching up to the new control mechanics. Is there any way to view the tutorials again? Also had a laggy match with Jon (as Luke Harper) and I'm using Kevin Owens. Damn is it hard to reverse while online.

Finally, I had Asuka vs Emma (CPU), and when Emma pinned Asuka, she pulled her up after a one-count and slammed Asuka to the mat. I marked out.

First time my game crashed.... was when I was building MyPlayer for MyCareer. Probably better than the one I had in 2K16:

EDIT: This guy was not saved so MyPlayer reverted back to his generic look and I have to it over again. :lol:

Is that from the photo import, or an incredible sculpting job?

Thanks Andrew, I imported the same face photo I used in 2K16 and took the time to sculpt the head... before the game crashed. :lol:

After so much fiddling with the new creation suite, I've finally finished MyPlayer for 2K18:

It's a shame that you can't import your MyPlayer outside the MyPlayer mode; hopefully, you can export characters after you've finished MyCareer.

Turned out great. Way better than my NBA 2K18 face scan, that's for sure.

For a moment there I thought the shirt said "Hunt the Dog," had to take a closer look.

For 16 I mostly did tournaments, and last year I made an attempt at a "stables" universe where I only ran one show, it was only two 5-person stables in the show. Once a stable lost all their titles and no rivalries remained, they were replaced....It worked better than expected, but this year I'm getting back into universe...running 6 shows a week with 3 PPVs a month, 2 shows each. Grouped like this.

RAW - "WWE" Wrestlers
Smackdown - "Indie Darling" Wrestlers

NXT - Current wrestlers I don't really like/care for.
ECW - My favorites

Nitro - WCW & Older Wrestlers
WWF - Attitude & Recently Retired

Each weekly show I have set at the shortest 5 matches per show, and I only actually play/promo rivalries on each. Then on PPVs I only do championship or rivarly matches.

So far it's keeping things moving and interesting while involving the entire roster.
Opinions are my own.

Seems like MyCareer starts the same way and would just branch out when you get to the main roster.

Image

I still haven't played after this match. But I really love the gameplay this year. Roode reversed my first signature move attempt and then reversed it again after I successfully completed a Comeback sequence. He set up for his finisher which I reversed with a knee to his face, busting him open, then I hit my finisher for the win.

That was probably the best ending sequence I've ever experienced.

Here's my character's title match against Bobby Roode. I thought the finish was bonkers because of the signature and finisher reversals. Having skipped 2K17, I appreciated the show intros and pyro.

EDIT: I know there's a custom video maker built-in for the game, but I made a custom entrance video outside of the game using After Effects, and I replaced Summer Rae's entrance video. In the game's directory, there are three titantrons used for different screen resolutions: one for the Raw/Smackdown super wide titantron, the normal 16:9 titantron, and the 4:3 titantron used for older arenas.

Currently, my character switched to Smackdown and is currently in a rivalry with Jack Gallagher. :lol:
