Old Man Jenkins Posted April 25 Share Posted April 25 April 22nd officially marked 10 years since the first episode of Community Deathmatch dropped. So just like I did with the SpongeBrawl 10th anniversary, I did my damnedest trying to update the very first Deathmatch for modern SBC audiences on WWE 2K22! I was originally gonna have it just be a Last Man Standing (keeping opponents down for a 10 count is the closest thing to simulating death in this game), but the match I ended up getting out of it was boring and ended on a very anticlimactic note. So I just ran it through a trio of way better Extreme Rules matches, with the winner to be decided by a “Best 2 Out of 3 Deaths” stipulation (just imagine the referee’s 3 count as being the loser’s final three gasps for air). Unfortunately, there will be none of that vintage Jjs & OMJ commentary accompanying it. My setup is just my PS5 at the moment and that’s it. Apologies to anyone who might’ve been looking forward to the chances of that happening. I honestly wouldn’t blame you if you just left now lol. Without any further ado, LET’S GET IT ON!

George Costanza maybe? Fuck! That would’ve been better. I’ll keep note of that for the 20th anniversary, maybe. Wumbo’s ring gear is a weird fusion between between Bret Hart and Jeff Jarrett’s. For tvguy, since he has no avatar, I just went with the first thing I think of whenever I hear his current username Ron; Ron Swanson. And his outfit feels like the closest thing I can make to a cable guy’s outfit, though he probably looks more like a janitor lol He has a chainsaw in his entrance as a fun little tongue in cheek reference to him using a chainsaw to help him win in the original pilot. Chainsaws aren’t a weapon in this game, so that was the next best thing to get that representation in there. Each of their color schemes are based on their current username colors. I ended up going with the 2 out of 3 stipulation because each match had a little bit of something that I wanted that the other two didn’t quite deliver. Like Alejandro only actually showing up in the third match when I wanted him to show up sooner lol and tvguy actually using a sledgehammer like he did in the original pilot. And I think that’s a wrap on this celebration of Deathmatch’s first ever episode! But not necessarily the end of this thread quite yet. I think, with the help of WWE 2K22, I have one more NEW piece of Deathmatch content left in me. But that’s for another day, not too far away. I hope y’all found some enjoyment in this even though it’s not quite the complete “remaster” I would’ve liked for it to be. You know, I said before that I’m not proud of everything I did when making this lit, and I still feel that way, but it was still pretty a big ass part of my “history” here on SBC and I’d be remiss if I didn’t give it the same executive treatment that I gave Skodwarde for his anniversary. Send it off on a better note than I did the first time. I hope you’ll join me soon for what will more than likely be my final farewell to Community Deathmatch! 1 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
