Ledesma said in the Q and A video they did this week that the finger being blurred would be in game. I think its dumb but they have to try keep the content to a middle level to accomidate the WWE with the current PG rating they use.
This makes no sense at all. The WWE's TV programming is PG. They've released Rock and Austin DVDs that are TV-14, so what makes a VIDEO GAME that much different?
In a game about the ATTITUDE ERA, they BLURRED OUT the biggest star's of the Attitude Era's trademark??? Yeah this game will be some bullshit. SMH at WWE and THQ for this and the other fuck-ups...
Any reason why Punk comes out with his WHITE Best in The World, and not his current shirt?? Makes no sense.
Does anyone else have brief moments of clarity while watching stuff like this?
Like for a split second, you just forget everything you know about TNA and say "Holy shit, I'm watching Kurt Angle wrestle Sting in clown make-up on PPV in 2011 in front of 800 non-paying tourists at an amusement park." to yourself? Shit is surreal man.
It's not the worst game ever, but it ruins the essence of the Attitude Era for the game. Pretty easy to understand.
The game's selling point is the Attitude Era. How can people not get that?
How can blurred fingers ruin a damn game? Even on most TV-14 shows today, middle fingers are blurred out. In the Q&A, Cory Ledesma said that the game won't be as 100% edgy as the Attitude Era, as the game also focuses on the WWE in 2011-2012. It's amazing how everyone rages over this censor.
It's only going to be the Attitude Era in certain aspects, I knew that from the second they announced it. THQ needed a gimmick to sell the game at face value and the Attitude Era was that, even more so keeping in mind that they were never going to develop an AE only video game in similar fashion to what they did with Legends of Wrestlemania.
So in all it was the perfect way to lure in buyers by presenting something that was demanded and using it as fodder for what will actually be another simple iteration in the WWE game series. WWE 13 is still WWE 13 with or without the AE branding thrown on it.
