Why is a Hall of Famer on the cover of WWE 2k16?

Standard

Ah, good ol’ Stone Cold Steve Austin. That beer drinking, ass kickin’ sumbitch….

Why are you on the cover of WWE 2k16?

Don’t get me wrong, I love Stone Cold. Millions of people love Stone Cold Steve Austin. He’s an icon, he’s a legend, he’s the bald head of the attitude era!

He’s also very much retired.

Why would he be on the cover of this video game when he’s retired, hmmm? On the covers we’ve had John Cena, The Rock (at least he comes back and has some matches…sometimes….whatever), CM Punk, Randy Orton…. quite an array! But Steve Austin as the cover? Really.

Could you possibly have any less faith in your main roster than you already do? You have to go and put him on the cover as opposed to any of your leading superstars? Why wouldn’t Seth Rollins be on the cover? He’s been parading around as the Future of the WWE for ages now! Hell, at the moment he has not one, but two titles with him.

Yet he’s not on the cover. Stone Cold is.

Of all the possibilities…the current champion Seth Rollins, the intimidating thoroughbred Roman Reigns, the insanely-over-with-the-crowd Dean Ambrose, the “you should see a therapist” Bray Wyatt.

None of them!

Nothing says, “I have no faith in our future” like pulling a man out of retirement and reminding everyone of the “good ol’ days” by slapping him on the cover.

The Evil Within

The Evil Within is an upcoming survival horror video game by Shinji Mikami, known for his work on the Resident Evil franchise, Shadows of the Damned. If those don’t fill your teacup then you may also know his work from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney games. 

If you go on their website and search for more info you will be told a brief explanation of the premise, screen shots, and player reactions.

While investigating the scene of a gruesome mass murder, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners encounter a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead.

Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.

Something tells me they would have preferred a regular ol’ sociopath than fight with hideous creatures.

The game is currently in development for Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PC. The game is available for pre-order  for it’s 10/14/14 release. The pre-order is called the “Fighting Chance Pack” which includes: medical cat, double barrel shotgun, incendiary agony bolt, poison agony bolt, and green gel as in-game bonuses.

Because who doesn’t love green gel?
