The engine upgrade continues humming along just fine. A few speed bumps here and there as the upgraded animation system is taught how to deal with the proper alignment of animation sequences but it’s nothing we haven’t overcome before. Seems like every time we ‘upgrade’ the core engine we are shown just how much these modern game engines are NOT designed with wrestling games in mind. Probably helps explain why so few developers actually make functioning wrestling games never mind actually GOOD wrestling games. Shit’s hard!
We’ve managed to sneak in some new animations for you as well as more CAW content as promised. I don’t want to jinx it, but if the animation tests keep coming back successful we could see a very nice bump in animation content after this upgrade just because adding new animations has become faster and easier.
And speaking of adding content, we’ve also been making sure Pro Wrestling X supports Steam Workshop going forward. The guys we’re testing it a few days ago and, again, tests went well. We were able to create, upload, download, and share some created test CAW’s right from within the Pro Wrestling X game menu itself.
Still lots of work to do but the crew is absolutely killing it. Everyone is just so inspired by the early improvements in quality and performance so we want to just keep pushing this upgrade along as quickly and properly as we can. Good times!

Question of the Week
Most under-rated wrestling game in your collection? That guilty pleasure that you enjoy but most everyone else shits on?
Personally, I still enjoy the Lucha Libre Heroes del Ring game from 2010. Part of it is that I just want to play a lucha game and the other part is that this game, while definitely small in scope compared to the WWE games, is really pretty decent for its budget and aspirations. It’s kinda like a tease of what a lucha game could have been if only they had another two years and $5 Million more to spend on it.
What about you? Wonder how many people will answer Rumble Roses or Iron Slam…
In the meantime and in between time, that's it, another edition of Wrestling Gamers United.
