I was actually playing 2k15 with a friend the other day and we could only get through a match or two. I was telling him that they should have a fictional story mode where past WWE superstars invade the present, or vice versa. They always want to center everything around nostalgia, at least make a storyline out of it.

2K15 mostly focused on the current and future(NXT) so 2K16 may focus even more on that

I really hope we can use custom music for our entrances again.

However, neither console has added the ability to store out mp3s on the hdd, so I don't know how possible that will be.

it just felt so limiting not being able to choose your own song for your CAW in 2K15.

yeah....lol.

if we can't use custom music, then at least 2K15 could provide a generous "catalog" of Superstar entrance music from WWE's vast library. including music from stars or legends who aren't in the game.

of course, I'm sure there's probably licensing/royalty issues at play there.

but, for example, last year, I really wanted to use Bret Hart's entrance music for one of my CAWs. But, since Bret wasn't in the game, I couldn't use it.

So any thoughts on gameplay,features and roster or is the music feature the main thing for you?

well, just to clarify, I'd take better/refined gameplay mechanics and a more robust character creator over custom music.

For instance, one thing they have to rework is the "wake up" taunt system and how that was tied to a charged finisher in 2K15.

That was a really dumb move, and it was even more limiting than lack of custom music.

Why?

Because the wake up taunts were tied to that specific finisher. and only a select few finishers had special taunt animations ( AA, RKO, etc. ).

Most finishers just had a generic wakeup taunt, including the Pedigree.

In the past, we could choose whatever wake up taunt we wanted, regardless of the finisher. If I wanted to do Ortons "ground pound" wake up taunt, and then hit them with the Pedigree, I could do that in past games.

But not in 2K15.

That needs to change in 2K16. Let us pick whatever wake up taunt we want like we could do before.

I think they could also get rid of the "chain grappling" system.

in theory, it sounded cool. but it just didn't work too well for me, and I quickly turned it off. it really disrupted the flow of the match - at least for me.

so, they need to either rework that or scrap it.

I read somewhere that they'll introduce better limb targeting. I'd support that.

Being able to rename finishers, which was present in the very 1st Smackdown, would also be a welcome addition. Renaming signature moves would be nice, too.

the career mode was a decent start but it need as hell of a lot of work. and i agree with better interactive storys


universe mode is still a joke though.

I want an RPG career mode in the way of Here Comes The Pain or Raw 2 but if you want interactive stories in another way then you can hope they bring Road to Wrestlemania mode.

Themed story modes are nice but after Attitude Mode,Wrestlemania Classics and 2K15's 2K Showcase,There isn't much they can do now and am losing interest...However if the 2K Showcase was expanded upon by including top feuds from all eras since the golden era or even pre-hogan era to make a complete history/legacy compilation

I'm kind of tired of these theme modes, too.

however, I wouldn't mind a WCW themed mode. Not just an Invasion storymode, but one where we could relive key moments in WCW history.

that would probably never happen, though..........

hmmmm....

I read a rumor that Goldberg might be in it.

I hope there's a WCW theme this year - a Monday Night Wars theme that showcases matches and feuds from both companies would be great.

It's not much of a rumor when it seems Goldberg basically commented that he wants to be in a new game

Jim Ross and a Stone Cold"Attitude Era"section(likely a 2K Showcase)confirmed!?
Quote:
"We're already working on that, said Lawler. A lot of people ask about my old broadcast partner. They're having in this year's game a big 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin Attitude Era section, and they have me and J.R. back together again in the studio doing voice-overs for that."

Jerry Lawrer said in a radio show that WWE 2k16 will feature Stone Cold mode and he and JR have recorded commentary for it:

I hope this is true. It would be great to have many Attitude Era wrestlers and arenas.

I hope most, if not all of the NXT roster makes it in.

Even sweeter if there are a bunch of Attitude Era/WCW guys too.
