Vortex Effect Is Pleased To Announce That Network Site PW Main Event Is Officially Launched

PW Main Event

Today, Vortex Effect expands a little with the creation of The Vortex Effect Network, and the official launch of PW Main Event. This site was created in 2011 to cover many different topics. Primarily a wrestling and gaming site, Vortex Effect also had movie news and reviews, MMA, sports, some occasional music, and even political posts (Ron Paul!). Over time, we completely dropped the politics and music and ultimately shifted more towards being a gaming first site. As of today, we're also dropping wrestling from the things we cover here on Vortex Effect. Unlike politics and music though, we're doing so because we want to do MORE wrestling stuff. I know the audience we get. I see where you're coming from and what you're searching for to get here. I know what articles you're reading, and … [Read more...]

WWE 2K15 Story and Career Modes Revealed

WWE 2K15

WWE 2K15 is the "IGN First" game for August, so IGN is getting to reveal information about the game all month long. Today, two modes were revealed (but very little talked about): Story and Career. Story mode is called 2K Showcase and is described as "broken up into two episodes, each one focusing in tightly on an epic rivalry from the WWE’s past. Think of them as mini-documentaries of a sort." So unlike previous years where we relived the Attitude Era or looked back on 30 Years of WrestleMania, this year we'll be tackling two of the WWE's greatest rivalries. My guess would be that we'll see John Cena vs. Randy Orton and Stone Cold vs. either Rock or Bret Hart. Those are just guesses, and both could be way off. New to the series is the MyCareer mode. You may know this mode from the NBA 2K … [Read more...]

First WWE 2K15 Screenshot Revealed by John Cena, Is Impressive

WWE 2K15

Current WWE Champion John Cena took to Twitter this morning to share a screenshot of his virtual self squaring of against rival Randy Orton in 2K's upcoming WWE 2K15. You can see by the screen below that the game looks way more impressive and realistic thanks to Visual Concepts helping with development. WWE 2K15 releases on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: Kinda ironic that a bunch of WWE 2K15 stuff finally comes out on the day where we're launching a new wrestling only site, but glad to finally starting seeing and hearing some details about 2K15. The screenshot looks really good, definitely much better than anything we've seen from Yuke's before. The roster will be revealed during Summer Slam weekend, and I hope it includes more wrestlers than we … [Read more...]

No More Wrestling Content on Vortex Effect

WWE Logo

We started this site in April 2011 and the very first post was a wrestling post. The site was intended to be largely a wrestling site with a focus also on gaming and movie reviews; very much a hybrid mashing of our different interests. Overtime, the site has shifted more and more towards video games and the wrestling took a back seat, mostly. The initial audience we had for wrestling stuff left, seemingly not caring about all the gaming stuff that was dominating (can't say I blame them). Likewise, not too many of our current readership cares about the wrestling content. So, while Vortex Effect remains a hybrid site of gaming and movies, and even sports occasionally, there will be no more wrestling content here (unless its about a video game). Why are sports allowed and wrestling has to … [Read more...]

The Icon Sting Announced As Pre-order Bonus for WWE 2K15

WWE 2K15

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpWoquodmPs For the first time ever, wrestling icon and the franchise of WCW STING will appear in a WWE ring... in video game form. Last night during Monday Night RAW, WWE debuted the above trailer announcing that two versions of Sting will be available as DLC for those who pre-order the game. You can check out which versions of Sting in the roster art below (not in-game shots though). Sting is available when you pre-order at any participating retailer, which is sure to be most of them here in the states. WWE 2K15 hits PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 on October 28th. Smith's Sentiment: I'm obviously super excited that Sting, one of my favorites of all time (I didn't write under the screen name "Stinger" for years for no reason after all), will … [Read more...]

Darren Young Revealed for WWE 2K15 Roster

WWE 2K15

Today at the GaymerX convention, WWE superstar Darren Young announced that he would be a part of the WWE 2K15 roster. That makes Young a returning character, as he was on the 2K14 roster as well. 2K released the below roster art to coincide with his announcement. He joins John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Cesaro, Hulk Hogan, AJ Lee, Naomi, and Cameron as announced superstars and divas thus far. WWE 2K15 hits stores on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: The more the merrier. I always enjoy the legends, but really they should be additional folks after all of the current WWE roster makes it to the game. So I'm glad Young is making it in the game once again this year. I'm excited to see some real PS4/Xbox One gameplay footage hopefully … [Read more...]

John Cena Is The WWE 2K15 Cover Superstar

WWE 2K15

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon revealed the cover of WWE 2K15 tonight on RAW, and as many of us figured it is new WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena. WWE 2K15 hits stores on October 28th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: That's not a surprise, but I don't have much of a problem with it. It has been a few years since Cena last appeared on the cover anyway. The cover itself looks pretty good; I like it better than last year's. I wouldn't be surprised to see WWE and 2K run another contest allowing fans to make their own covers with the winning cover being printed on the reverse of the actual cover. That's just a guess though. Now 2K, please don't make us wait until Summer Slam to start seeing anything about this game that is releasing in OCTOBER. A screen shot … [Read more...]

There were reports circulating that 2K and WWE were going to release the next WWE game in March 2015 to coincide with WrestleMania, but today we got official confirmation that the game will indeed be releasing this year: October 28th to be exact.
