WWE.com — WWE 2K15 roster revealed at SummerSlam Confidential Panel

“The next generation of WWE video games now has its roster.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles, an enthusiastic SummerSlam Confidential Panel audience learned which Superstars and Divas will appear in WWE 2K15, the latest edition of the revered video game series. The involvement of squared circle luminaries like Sting and Hulk Hogan has already been announced by WWE and 2K, and Saturday’s roster reveal event at Club Nokia at LA LIVE — which was hosted by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin — confirmed which stars the WWE Universe can choose for their dream match showdowns when WWE 2K15 hits the shelves this fall.”

EA Sports and EA Vancouver finally, at long last, have shown the masses what their next-gen hockey experience will be like with two gameplay videos for NHL 15. They’ve left little to the imagination, as the videos display the game’s new presentation, authentic arenas, crowds, graphics, commentary, collision physics, equipment layers, puck physics and more.

Being a huge proponent of both hockey and video games — and having watched the videos several times over — I decided to analyze all the changes that will be coming in NHL 15. If you haven’t seen the videos, I’ve embedded them at the bottom of this post.

GamerNode — The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 4 – Amid the Ruins Review

“Telltale Games is starting to develop an unhealthy pattern in the seasons of its adventure games. For some strange reason, the developer just can’t seem to put together a highly compelling fourth episode. Perhaps it’s just the unfortunate fact that this episode will always follow the high-intensity of the middle chapter and precede the climax that is the finale. But regardless of why it happens, The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 4 – Amid the Ruins has become its next victim.”

WWE.com — Who is ‘Mr. SummerSlam’?

“In the pantheon of WWE pay-per-views, only one event — The Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania — outstrips SummerSlam in terms of prestige. Since SummerSlam first appeared on the WWE pay-per-view calendar in 1988, comparisons between it and big brother WrestleMania have only been natural. As such, shouldn’t there be a “Mr. SummerSlam” by now?

Shawn Michaels has the moniker “Mr. WrestleMania” all locked up, of course, but who’s HBK’s equivalent on the biggest stage of the summer? Armed with a loose set of criteria — match quality, milestones and endurance — WWE.com editors have made their case for why certain Superstars should be called Mr. SummerSlam.  Read the arguments and then decide for yourself by voting in our Mr. SummerSlam poll.”
