Becky Lynch makes sense. Would have been cool to have her on a solo cover, but can't say there have been very many women on covers of sports titles.

It's a first for WWE 2K at least. Chyna (who will be in the game) appeared along with other wrestlers on the covers of older titles.

Apparently the new game was so broken that Sony was issuing refunds to customers

I've always found it baffling when people say the graphics look like from the PS2 era, but man does it look like PS2 graphics now.

There's some hyperbole there, but there's definitely a downgrade. The glitches are pretty bad as well.

I did pick up the game as I had a gift card, and I figured I would at some point because of my collector's mentality. It's OK, it's not too different from WWE 2K19 so it has some of the same gameplay flaws. I'm yet to experience any of the really bad glitches I've seen. I actually managed to win a match only using one finisher, so that was nice. I hate how they've made certain wrestlers pre-order/DLC exclusive, to say nothing of not being able to change attributes unless you buy the Accelerator DLC.

Stuff like that was already a bad practice in previous years, but considering how sloppy the game is this year, it's even an even worse look for them. Knowing how rough it was going to be, they should've gone for some goodwill with the content. I guess they hoped they'd secure sales with those pre-order bonuses and avoid taking a hit in sales from bad reviews, but I think this is going to be more costly in the long run. It certainly should be. From what I've read, 2K initiated the split because they wanted to do things a certain way - microtransactions would be my guess - and now they've paid the price. Of course, it means that we miss out on a better game, too.

Anyway, hopefully some patches can improve the experience, but in the meantime, 2K deserves to take some knocks for the situation.

This game is getting absolutely eviscerated in reviews. Phew.

Cathy Kelley tweeted a video of Dakota Kai duck-walking in reference to the famous WWE 2K20 glitch involving in-game Kai and Ronda Rousey. :lol:

Oh man, what have they done to Peyton Royce in MyCAREER? It doesn't help that she never blinks, but that movement is some PS2-era stuff. I normally loathe those comparisons because it's somewhat hyperbolic, but it's got that exaggerated movement to emphasise speech animations that's very characteristic of early 3D titles, and even some games a couple of generations ago.

Yeah, back then I've been saying that it doesn't look like PS2 graphics at all. But this is just a very obvious graphical downgrade.

What's with Peyton's eyelashes? Are those snow? Why doesn't she blink?!

Alien possession. That's what I'm going with. The line about the brass kangaroo is good, though.
