Dialogue Screw Up Discovered In Latest DLC For WWE 2K17

[Image: 2K] Bugs and glitches are nothing new. But WWE 2K17‘s just released Hall of Fame Showcase does one better with a dialogue flub. Advertisement Raw audio of commentator Jerry Lawler flubbing dialogue during the Papa Shango versus The Godfather match ended up in the final DLC. This doesn’t appear in every match (it’s not in this one), because loads of recorded dialogue can be used. Obviously, during the recording process, dialogue screw ups are normal, but they are usually edited out. Not here. I dunno. I kind of like it this way. READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Randy Pitchford Talks Battleborn’s Perceived Failure Against Overwatch & Borderlands’ Success

In case you’ve already forgotten about it, Gearbox Software released its hero shooter Battleborn around the same time as Blizzard’s hugely successful Overwatch. While the latter continues to smash records, the former has largely been considered a failure, with publisher 2K’s parent company Take-Two publicly acknowledging that it was a disappointment. Now, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has offered his thoughts on the title alongside weighing in on the success of its Borderlands‘ series. In an interview with Glixel, Pitchford said that 3.5 million people have played Battleborn but it’s considered a failure given Overwatch‘s numbers (over 25 million at present), stating that it’s “strange how we frame this stuff.” Everybody defines success based on what they risk versus what they’re hoping to achieve by it, but the world defines success based on comparing things to one another. It’s a relative thing. Pitchford acknowledged that when Blizzard announced Overwatch‘s release date, Gearbox approached Take-Two to warn the company that Activision will “brute force” it and will “outspend” its rival “every day of the week.” However, the team settled on going ahead with its planned launch and decided not to take it as a fight. Whether they consider it a READ FULL STORY…
