May 29, 2012 // 5 Comments

  THQ has been working on their WWE ’13 site today, and the roster page is up. Check it out here. Of note, there’s 77 roster spaces combined. The breakdown is like this: WWE Superstars (38), Divas (7), and Attitude Era (32). Some of that could be DLC, who knows. I would say that 77 doesn’t include DLC since the press release today stated that the roster would be the largest in franchise history, and well last year’s game had 78 including all the DLC. With that said, it would appear the odds of Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins, JTG, and Trent Barretta, amongst others, [...]

May 29, 2012 // 12 Comments

  156. That’s the number of MMA fighters that were available to use in UFC Undisputed 3, developed by Yuke’s and released by THQ on February 14, 2012. 78.
