Hrmmm, I've missed the last two years, so I am tempted on this one depending on how it turns out. I just got done with AAA Lucha Libre (which wasn't bad) and wouldn't mind another wrestling game in a few months.

WWE All Stars and WWE 12 were steps in the right direction. I just wouldn't buy them at launch, because all the cool online stuff they promise is borked.

I gave up on WWE a few years back, but the implication with that trailer is legends are a big part of the game, not just an afterthought. I'll actually be keeping an eye on this for nostalgia value.

If the nWo will be in the game (which the trailer hints at) then they have my 60 bucks.

I have to admit that does look pretty cool. I fell out of watching wrestling a while ago but still like the older stuff and the games can be fun from time to time. Might buy it depending what reviews sound like.

For God's sake please bring back the season mode as seen in the PS2 Smackdown games. I am sick to dead of the half assed GM mode, and RIWM is played out.

Re: WWE '13 November 1, 2012.

Last summer, one man revolutionized the current WWE landscape. In a legendary moment at the end of Monday Night Raw, WWE Superstar CM Punk – as The Voice of the Voiceless – changed everything the world knew about WWE. Through his words and actions, a new leader emerged to set a higher standard, convey a new brand of attitude and ultimately ignite a revolution among the WWE Universe. His mantra? "Best in the World."

It’s not the first time WWE has seen such rebellion. Nearly 15 years ago, the legendary "Stone Cold" Steve Austin also revolutionized the WWE realm, sparking a new generation of supporters through his relentless, antihero behavior in one of WWE’s most celebrated time periods: the Attitude Era. Why did it happen? In his words, "'Cause Stone Cold said so."

Today, a new crusade is on the horizon, and it doesn’t start with an iconic WWE Superstar on television, online or at a live event. WWE '13 is imminent, and it’s time to Live the Revolution.

THQ’s flagship WWE videogame franchise returns to provide the most authentic, seamless and passionate experience to date – all while turning up the attitude. WWE '13 will transform WWE gameplay through the introduction of WWE Live™, completely changing the way players embrace the videogame’s audio and presentation elements. Predator Technology™ returns to further implement critical gameplay improvements, while fan favorites in WWE Universe Mode and the franchise’s renowned Creation Suite are poised to offer the utmost in player freedom. Furthermore, WWE '13 will introduce a groundbreaking, single-player campaign based on the highly influential Attitude Era. Complete with a robust roster – the largest to date in the franchise – along with a host of additional features, WWE '13 is ready to live a revolution all its own.

KEY FEATURES
WWE LIVE™ – Experience the atmosphere, spectacle and fervor of a WWE live event through attention-grabbing Spectacular Moments, including ring breaks and barricade crashes, along with a brand new audio and presentation system designed to produce the most authentic and vibrant commentary, sound effects and crowd participation levels ever experienced in a WWE videogame
THE ATTITUDE IS BACK – Return to an unparalleled and groundbreaking era in WWE history – a time of pure raucousness, grandiose personalities and colossal revolution – through a franchise-first single player campaign focused on eight purveyors of attitude during the famed television "Monday Night Wars," including WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
WWE UNIVERSE 3.0 – Control the virtual WWE experience like never before in the popular career-style mode, as individual decisions throughout gameplay will dynamically introduce matches, alliances, rivalries and unpredictable moments along the path toward becoming a WWE Champion
PREDATOR TECHNOLOGY™ 2.0 – Driven by new animations, transitions and modified controls, Predator Technology returns to deliver intelligent, fluid and engaging WWE action, resulting in a smoother gameplay experience than its predecessors
CREATE + SHARE – Utilize the franchise’s industry-defining Creation Suite to develop and customize Superstars, entrances, arenas, finishing moves, storylines, highlight reels and more, as well as share and download creations with others from around the world
DISTINGUISHED ROSTER – Compete with a vast array of WWE Superstars and Attitude Era luminaries from the largest roster in franchise history, including cover Superstar CM Punk, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Sheamus, Undertaker, Mankind, Chris Jericho, Big Show and Mark Henry
SURPRISES IN STORE – Live the Revolution through future announcements, including additional game features, a comprehensive roster reveal, downloadable content and big surprises

Re: WWE '13 November 1, 2012.

Odd seeing old-school, long hair Undertaker in that screenshot after Wrestlemania this year.

Hopefully they fix the online portion this year...

EDIT: Looks like they pushed the release date up to Oct. 30th.

Don't count on Owen (though I would love it too). His wife is still being a hard ass about including him in anything WWE is associated with. But if I do get the game, he'll probably be one of the first I create (because if the attitude era is represented, he makes perfect sense to be in it).

I guess what I don't quite understand is...how does his wife have any say in it?

Because she owns the rights to him being used in any new capacity. I think the WWE can get away with old match footage if he is a part of it but they can not get away with say an Owen Hart dvd package or in this case his likeness in a video game. I think it also has something to do with that Owen Hart is his name where as had the WWE named him Black O. Harte, she probably would not have any say. This is the same reason we see indie wrestlers like Bryan Danielson or Tyler Black becoming Daniel Bryan and Seth Rollins once they hit WWE. It's all a rights game. Vince wants to own the likeness lock, stock and barrel.

So what makes this different than any other wrestler who's died? Just the fact that he went by his real name? I'm just confused how she owns those rights at all.

Re: WWE '13 November 1, 2012.

Any wrestler that appears in the game and is not currently under contract to WWE has to have their likeness licensed by THQ, regardless of whether or not WWE owns the name they wrestled under. Hence, every person in the game not currently under WWE contract (or his estate) has signed a contract with THQ to license their name and/or likeness, and thus they get a check from THQ to appear in the game. (If WWE owned the name, they could use the name, but not the likeness of the person who portrayed the character). Owen Hart is a real name of a real person. Hence they need to license his name and likeness from his estate in order for either to appear in the game. Martha Hart, as Owen's widow, controls his estate, and will not agree to license his name or likeness for use with anything associated with WWE.

They could put a character like Doink in the game with little trouble, because WWE owns that name and likeness, and the gimmick has been done by multiple wrestlers.

As such, they could probably get away with putting the Blue Blazer in the game, as they own that name and likeness, but I don't know that they would want to do that, and if they did, they would probably still face a lawsuit from Martha Hart (whether or not she would win said suit is another matter). Not to mention that it would be in extremely bad taste to do so, as he died doing that gimmick.
