Arnie to Star in WWE 2K16

Starburst Magazine - - Pixel Juice -

Wrestling isn’t usu­ally a do­main that STAR­BURST strays into all that of­ten, but this one is just a lit­tle bit too weird to let fly. Ap­par­ently, Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger is go­ing to be made avail­able as a playable char­ac­ter in the latest WWE game (when you pre­order). Bet­ter yet, he will ac­tu­ally be turn­ing up as the Ter­mi­na­tor, rather than him­self - as wit­nessed in the rather cool TV spot cur­rently run­ning.

Arnie has quite the history with WWE, so much so that he has even been in­ducted into their Hall of Fame. Even so, this still seems like a lit­tle bit of an odd move, but there are prob­a­bly plenty of peo­ple who are go­ing to rel­ish the chance of play­ing as him and tak­ing out a few of the cur­rent crop of WWE stars.

Plus, the game could use the celebrity fire­power af­ter the scan­dal that Hulk Ho­gan found him­self em­broiled in last month. It’s been a long time com­ing, but it looks like the rhythm genre is try­ing to come back with a bang af­ter over­sat­u­ra­tion damn near killed the mar­ket a few years back. Both Har­monix and Ac­tivi­sion are bring­ing their flag­ship mu­sic games back, with Rock Band 4 get­ting out there first. Does any­body still want to play along to mu­sic us­ing plas­tic in­stru­ments? Only time will tell, but we don’t an­tic­i­pate the re­turn of the boom pe­riod that seemed to lead to a new mu­sic game com­ing out ev­ery ten min­utes a few years back.
