Wrestling today, particularly of the WWE variety, is a pale shadow of what it was in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Which is why the company, along with publisher THQ and developer Yuke’s, have made the Attitude Era such a strong focal point of WWE 13. However, promotional practices will still get in the way. This was made apparent when THQ announced Avatar items for XBox Live users of the game.
Here’s the list of the items, which will retail for 420 Microsoft Points each:
– Alberto Del Rio Outfit
– Brock Lesnar Outfit
– Brodus Clay Outfit
– Chris Jericho Outfit
– CM Punk “Best in the World” Outfit
– Daniel Bryan “YES!” Outfit
– John Cena “Doctor of Thuganomics” Outfit
– Ryback Outfit
– Santino Outfit
– Zack Ryder Outfit
Sound good? Now keep in mind just how many “Attitude Era”, or even “Ruthless Aggression” stars there are on that list. Which brings the point forward that no matter how much WWE 13 trumpets it, this game is aimed at, just like all of current WWE programming, kids.
