It's strong language to say "I won't buy it because ___" isn't in the game. But anyone like that.. I really don't think they would've bought the game on release anyways. I mean, they shouldn't either way. You play as that worker once and then what?
Other than removing people that are no longer with them or they lose the ability to have in due to contracts and other such things - I can see it remaining the same and growing. The 2K strategy seems to be more about building up what is already there year in and year out and allowing that to be the selling focus instead of "this year you get to have ___, ___ and ___" which was apparent with the yearly excitement over "WHICH LEGENDS WILL BE IN THIS YEAR" when all of that stuff started with the THQ versions of everything. That combined with the ability of modern consoles to allow more than previous generation in terms of space and storage - I'm really hoping that things keep moving ahead the way they are.
I guess things have changed for me since this thread started. I was going to head back to the military, but their process in getting me back was taking a long time and during the waiting period I got a job offer from a place in the city where I live (the base is about a 15-20 minute drive away and I would've have to maintain a decent drive since I don't have a car) and the offer came in as a full, salaried employee with benefits and everything. It's a 20 minute walk from my place and is in a great location with lots of places for lunch, nice office building and some people I know already work here. The atmosphere and people are excellent and the workday is pretty laid back (unless you're in a crunch time of course) which is something that I obviously didn't have when I worked with the military. We make web based applications for clients which keeps me busy learning something new every day so far and moving forward. Really enjoying it so far.
I only read the 30 wrestlers thing and couldn't watch the video. Now I have. SAVAGE AND ROBERTS SHOWCASE? FUJINAMI AND FLAIR? NATURAL DISASTERS IN GAME!? ZYBYSKO AND ANDERSON!? Holy shit, I am game. A lot of that is going to have to bring in some more WCW arenas as well.
I got down 300 and some of mine last night - a lot of them in the story showed up as unpurchased until I clicked on them though, which was odd but luckily I have a good memory of them. Have you heard anything about Blitz? There was no export for that - and they pushed all the songs to the store after it came out. A lot of them I thought I had I didn't.. because they were built into Blitz. I'm wondering if we're shit out of luck on those ones.
..I'm starting to remember that myself actually. That may have been a thing right from the start. I remember buying it again digitally too so I wonder if that'll count for me... oh well I suppose I'll just find out tonight when I get home.
