Each alternative attire is a separate character model so making them their own character really doesn't change anything.

However THQ still caused a minor internet implosion with AJ only being DLC and not on disc, while the Bella Twins and Alicia Fox are on disc.

Actually, it makes things worse. That's a total of 15 spots wasted. They should have made them alternate attires and used those 15 spots for other wrestlers. Also, it's pretty dumb to have a Nation version of Mark Henry if you're not going to have Nation versions for Rock, Farooq, Godfather and not even include D'lo at all. The other Henry should have just been Sexual Chocolate if that was going to be the case. I said after WWE 12 I was done with the series and so far they have done nothing to change my mind. They've only just made it easier to pass on WWE 13 this year.

I mean, I guess the Rock's hair would be different. The Godfather would pretty much look exactly the same though. Nation Farooq... wouldn't that just mean when you hit a combination of buttons he cuts a promo about whipping the Rock's ass?

Grrrr. So many wasted spots. I mean, with the 15 alternate personas/gimmicks, the roster is a scant 70 guys big. Only 70? Fuck this game and it's tiny roster.

I think he's still Kama (sp?) in that picture. Regardless, the only difference between Nation Godfather and regular Godfather is the color scheme... and the only difference between Kama and Godfather is the fedora and hoes.

Cool, I'm to glad to see you didn't break your sarcasm button. Too bad you're missing my point.

@Shot - Eh, I still think there's enough of a difference. It isn't much, sure. But what I'm saying is if we can get a current HHH, a DX HHH and a Hunter Hearst Helmsley then we can get some Nation versions of Rock, Farooq & Godfather.

No, I get your point. But the roster isn't getting credit for what's IN it, it's getting shit for what's NOT in it. It's like saying, "They have the Nation of Domination, but not the Disciples of Apocalypse?"

If anything, I'm surprised RTC isn't in it.

I mean, I'm certainly not trying to discredit the roster for what it is. I just think the bad taste left in my mouth by WWE 12 has put in me in a "Fuck WWE 13" mode before I even see anything about it.

Good point. Though it does stand to reason that HHH would get about a million different versions whereas The Godfather is surprisingly in the game at all.

I haven't bought a WWE game since the N64 days, so this will be no different for me.

Well yeah. I think that goes without saying. I still wish D'lo was in it though. :(

You completely missed my point.

They're SEPARATE MODELS. There's only a certain amount they can fit in the game. That means either take away separate attires for a lot of people (which haven't been revealed yet) to add new characters.

These separate spots aren't wasted because otherwise, they wouldn't exist.

No, I think you've missed my point. I know they're separate models, no need to yell. You might want to go back and read everything that was said though. I'm upset, because as attires they would take up far less space and that would mean, you'd guess it, more room for wrestlers not already included. (Like D'lo for example.) They don't have to be spot on. Attires are just fine.

Also, you contradicted yourself. There's only a certain amount that can fit on the disc, so you mean to tell me if the separate spots (Alternate versions) didn't exist that space would remain empty? Come on son, use your brain.

I meant if the separate characters were just alternate attires, there'd be only 70 characters but some guys with a lot of alternate attires.

There's also time constraints. Sometimes it's easier to work on a duplicate than it is to work on a brand new model. Not to mention guys like D'Lo, Angle, and Al Snow are in TNA so they won't be in the game anyway. There's still DLC to come and all that too.

Certain people aren't needed (like a second Lita), but I doubt there'd have really been many more characters if they got rid of the duplicates.

RVD was in TNA when he appeared in WWE....11 I think it was? Also, D'lo isn't an on-screen character so something could have been worked out.

But yeah, you've basically proven my point. The whole time constraint thing amounts to laziness. They could, they just don't want to.

RVD was signed to SVR11 before signing to TNA and he was too integral of a part to the story mode to take him out.

I've been told it takes 100 days to make a brand new model from scratch. You have to figure there's only a certain amount of modelers they have and creating a whole bunch of new guys could take too much time. I want different guys in the game too, but they have this for reasons such as having the same character face each other and because people have wanted a lot of alternate attires for years now.

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply there? If what you mean is that they did this so you can say, have Kane V. Kane, that isn't true. There's been multiple models of the same person in previous games but they restricted them from being in the same match together. I imagine this year will be the same. Either way, that certainly isn't the reason they're having them as separate models since they won't allow that to happen like they didn't before. If that's not what you mean then I have no clue what you're getting at.
Secondly, we have been getting a decent amount of alternate attires as of late, but as you said, these aren't attires, they are separate models. There is no valid reason to have it this way, no matter how you try and spin it.

You can do Attitude Henry vs. Current Henry and such. You couldn't do that if they were all alternate attires.

I'd also like to point out that for example, Miz in a t-shirt is a separate model from Miz with no t-shirt. It just takes less time to do that. All entrance attires are separate models as well.

I actually played a little WrestleMania 2000 after watching NewLegacyInc stuff a bit ago. I transformed Prince Albert into Lord Tensai. Then I cloned Lord Tensai and made him Lord Hentai complete with Val Venis theme, titantron, some provocative moves, and a mix of sexual taunts like Mr. Ass's mooning, Val Venis's fake flapping arm penis, and the Blue Meanie's dancing.

I was doing a tournament in that game and the finals were me as The Godfather vs. Lord Hentai as the computer. I was about to win when all of a sudden Droz's music played and who interferes? Lord Tensai came out to help Lord Hentai. I let Lord Hentai win after that.

Because the world wasn't ready for John Cena vs. John Cena. I don't know what makes them think it's ready now.

Day of Reckoning is still my personal favorite of the WWE games

No Mercy, HCTP, SVR06, and SVR07 were all good too and I played the hell out of them, but I really miss the DOR engine

I still play Day of Reckoning. HBK in that game is my personal fave.

I don't like what they've done with this whole multiple versions thingy. But I'm sure I'll get this for christmas and who knows, maybe if I'm lucky, my mom won't completely put that money to waste.
