It’s Bizarro world in my Universe today. I decided to make a modern Universe this morning.
The first match on RAW was McIntyre vs Ambrose it took me hitting Ambrose with 6 each of Glasgow Kisses and Claymores to beat him.
Then it was the B-Team vs Deleters of Worlds where the Deleter attacked the b team on the entrance. I was able to get it into the ring and within seconds of the match starting I was able to dirty pin Hardy with Bo. Dirty pins never work for me unless I had used multiple finishers before trying first and today it worked within seconds of the match starting.
Next was Rollins vs Ryder. Ryder attacked Seth on the stage and hit Seth with the Intercontinental championship. He went to do it again, but I blocked it and hit him with it and next thing I know is Rollins got the loss. WtF!? lol
The next match was Cena vs Jordan which I simulated and picked random winner. We all know that means Cena would win, but when I looked at the results Jordan had won. Who knew Cena would loose a simulated match?
Next match was Sting and Balor vs Zayn and Owens. Owens & Zayn ran in on Sting and Balor and got them to yellow health before the match started and both now had stored finishers. But surprisingly I somehow managed to keep Zayn in our corner and ended up winning the match by pinning Zayn.
The main event was Roman vs Taker. Surprisingly Taker didn’t run in because besides the first match every other match the AI did a prematch run in. But instead it was a squash match where after my first move I had a finisher to beat Taker. Then Braun came out to cash in and dominated me reversing everything I tried for the first couple minutes. But in the end Roman won to remain Universal Champion.
The show ended with Braun calling out Brock and Heyman. And winning the promo.
Had a pretty entertaining if short match against Brock Lesnar as Baron Corbin. They're in the middle of a pretty heated rivalry and Brock absolutely brutalized me. Not only did he take me to suplex city but he took me outside and threw me against anything he got near, suplexed me on the steps, and busted me open. The match ended as a draw not because the ai was in the wrong position to throw me back into the ring but because we were both counted out since Brock wouldnt stop beating the crap out of Corbin. I couldnt even be mad at the draw because of how realistic the beatdown from an irate Brock seemed.
I believe you can only have dual title matches in Exhibition mode, but not in Universe unfortunately. It's a feature I've been hoping they would include the last few years but it continues to be left out for some reason.
I really appreciate the fact that they have three single player modes this year, but man Showcase freaking sucks! The AI in that mode is cheap as hell and it takes all of the fun out of it. There should be checkpoints in the matches as some of them have like a million things for you to do only for the AI to then magically reverse all your signatures and finishers right at the end and then beat you making you have to start right from the beginning. If it was a fair challenge based on skill it would be one thing, but the whole mode encourages you to play as cheaply as possible.
Also, the grind to unlock things is absolutely disgraceful.
Totally agree with you about the difficulty! I have jst finished the showcase really enjoyed it but it was tough!The triple threat with randy and Batista was a nightmare to complete there should definitely be checkpoints but don’t wanna be to negative because I did really enjoy the showcase.
I somehow hit a wrong button and my save data got corrupted. I was able to reinstall all my DLC, but that "Unlock Everything" option in Purchaseables is gone. Damn. I've built up enough VC to rescue a few, but not all. Am I stuck unlocking everything the old fashioned way?
EDIT: Never mind! Thank God for online storage! I'm fine. That was scary.
Don't leave me and Cameron Stone unsupervised in online sessions...
