WWE 2K18

Other video games, TV shows, movies, general chit-chat...this is an all-purpose off-topic board where you can talk about anything that doesn't have its own dedicated section.

That was a huge gripe of mine when I first got the game as well. I wound up having to set up Player vs Player matches against an empty controller instead of vs CPU until I had a grasp of the controls.

That's the problem with this game's design. The only time you get a tutorial is when you play your actual first match, regardless of game modes.

You can get back in the ring by pressing L1/LB while pressing the analog stick towards the ring, or L2/LT to run towards the ring. As for kickouts, there's certainly a lag input there which was worse than it had with 2K16 (and you get three attempts when pinned normally, only two if you get hit by a finisher which kinda mirrors how the three-count works in real life, but in 2K15 you've got multiple chances to kick out).

For finishers, you can "charge" it by holding triangle/Y. You can cancel the "charge" by pressing L1/LB.

I really hate the kick out mechanic they've stuck with for a while now. It highlights the cheapness of the AI when I have to hit them with eight or so finishers to get the job done, but they hit me with one and I find myself in the "you can try, but you're not kicking out of this" version of the kick out mini-game. The submission mechanics/mini-game feels very biased towards the AI as well.

Looking and sounding more like I want, but I still suck at it.

Does that video play for anyone else? When I click the play button it loads for a bit then just pops up the "more videos" thing along the bottom. Clicking 'play' then does absolutely nothing.

Strange. I looked through the classic NBA videos thread and all the YT embeds there seemed to work, so it's not an issue with my browser and YouTube.

Somehow for PC there's an Eddie Edwards CAW but no Davey Richards.
