Content about WWE


We're getting all sorts of WWE announcements this week.  Hot on the heels of news that Mick Foley, the Hardcore Legend, was joining the game's upcoming DLC packs, we've just learned that one more legend has been added to the mix -- "Macho Man" Randy Savage.


One week prior to the release of WWE 12 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii, and THQ is still adding folks to the downloadable content list.  Just a couple of days after we announced that the animal Batista was to be included in the crew, we've just received word that a hardcore legend will be joining the ranks -- and he's bringing the barbed wire bat.


No, not the kind of Predator from To Catch a Predator.  And definitely not the space Predator -- though he would make a cool wrestling character.  Nope, we're talking about Predator technology, a new addition to the engine of WWE 12, THQ's upcoming wrestling game.  Its inclusion will not only make its characters look more dynamic, but will emulate WWE programming, to the point that you may actually feel as if you're watching the real thing.


We've seen some good stuff come out of the THQ/WWE partnership over the past few years, including the WWE Smackdown vs. Raw series (which has since been renamed to simply WWE 12 for this year's release) and the wild, enjoyable WWE All Stars, which made its debut back in March.  Still, for every great mainstream release, we seem to have gotten some weird off-shoot that tries to appeal to a different audience -- sort of like how WWE Crush Hour tried to do a few years ago.  (That was basically WWE superstars in Twisted Metal-style car combat.)  Now we have another off-shoot, this one featuring wrestlers battling opponents in street combat.  Um...


This year at we'll be scouring every inch of the E3 2011 exhibition hall floor to give you a glimpse of what the event is really all about: booth babes.  Okay, we know it's not really about booth babes. It's the video games that they're standing in front of.  We're going to be covering all the big reveals and hidden gems from the world of gaming and electronics throughout the next week.  And what better way to share the best of E3 with you than through lots and lots of pictures?
