Are they going to include the Brood entrance? Would make playing with Attitude Era E&C even more fun.

Not sure if the Brood entrance is in, Gangrel's solo entrance is in correctly though.

Really? A Move pack as DLC? Does this mean the moves are on the disc but locked?
 
# 7 Keohane15 @ 10/04/12 09:54 AM
Wasn't planning on buying this, but I may have to now
 
# 8 ps3veron @ 10/04/12 10:08 AM
Where oh where is Steve Blackman!?
 
# 9 Sportsfan0290 @ 10/04/12 10:38 AM
DDP. Oh man if only they add D-Low Brown but he's in TNA right? I haven't had a game since 10 now I'm back into it for this game. I could relive the WWE vs ECW vs WCW invasion. Sweetness.
 
# 10 eaterofworlds888 @ 10/04/12 10:47 AM
Sweet. Probably going to buy Fan Axxess day one. All of this DLC sounds great. Val Venis, Too Cool, Rikishi, DDP, and Goldust! Great stuff!!
 
# 11 DBMcGee3 @ 10/04/12 11:08 AM
It's definitely awesome that they have so many guys available, but damn, you'd think they'd cut us a break on the price after all the ridiculous online shenanigans last year. And no Ryback til December? I don't even really care for Ryback, but he's obviously getting a push right now (as well as Sandow) so it's lame to not have him on the default roster, especially when you're already showing off his intro. I want this game but it's hard to give THQ money, they're such A-holes.

Man Fan axxess this year is completely off the hook. Can't wait to get it so I can play with DDP and Gangrel and all. The DLC this year is going to be so sweet. Can't wait. Only a few more weeks to go before it release. It is going to be sweeeet!!!

So I guess if we dont wanna use the belts in universe then we cant just turn them off or something?
 
# 14 SmashMan @ 10/04/12 04:24 PM
Was hoping for a $15 price point; but for 20 new wrestlers, a bunch of belts and moves? $20 isn't bad.

Plus I used a $15 Amazon card to knock the game down to $45, so I'm only out $65 for everything. Can not complain.
 
# 15 Virtualc @ 10/05/12 12:23 AM
I do think it's stupid if u spend the 20 u cant get all the content from day 1. not that big of a deal to me, but it would've been good to have it all out the box
 
# 16 NinerFan1983 @ 10/05/12 02:45 AM
The more I read about this game, the more interesting it looks to me.

I haven't bought a wrestling game (Other than WWE All-Stars) in a long time. I think the last time I got one was SmackDown: Just Bring It way back in 2001 I think it was.

Might be time for me to get this one.
 
# 17 8and9 @ 10/05/12 06:55 AM
I don't even watch wrestling anymore, but the more I read the more I want. Reliving the old days should be fun as well and this DLC news makes it even better.
 
# 18 Mercury112491 @ 10/05/12 11:37 AM
why is the Lionsault a DLC move when Jericho is already in the game and used the move in his latest run? Shouldn't it already be in the game?

I think people are potentially jumping to conclusions. Although that may be the case, it is possible that the DLC just allows you to assign the move to other people and created wrestlers while Jericho already has it.
 
# 20 Vizen @ 10/05/12 03:29 PM
I have a question regarding DLC pack that includes player editing and unlocking everything. If I want player editing, but want to unlock everything on my own, will that be a selectable option or am I out of luck?
