WWE 2K15 coming soon to Xbox One and 360, gets a hard-hitting soundtrack

19

Sure October is the month for scary games, but plenty of non-spooky stuff comes out this month as well. You could just as easily call it the month for sports games, with NBA 2K15 already released (review coming tomorrow!) and EA Sports NBA Live 15 on the way. WWE 2K15 will arrive on Xbox 360 on the 28th (followed by Xbox One next month), so we can add sports entertainment to the list as well.

To help get wrestling fans excited for WWE 2K15, 2K Sports has just revealed the track list of the game's soundtrack. You'll find 12 licensed songs in-game to set the mood for punches and suplexes. The official WWE 2K15 soundtrack album features 8 of those songs, plus two exclusive tracks from John Cena and Wiz Khalifa, which is apparently a name and not a urinary disorder. The whole soundtrack was curated by our man John Cena, who happens to be a successful rap artist when he's not busting heads.

Read on for our full game preview and the song list!

What's on your Windows Phone Start Screen, Mark Guim?

125

I've been using the Lumia Icon for a while, but recently switched to the Hulk, also known as the green Lumia 1520. I didn't back up and restore any of my previous items since I wanted to start fresh. I've noticed my new Start Screen is different on the new device, so this is a perfect time to show it off.

Daniel started off the series, with Sam, George, and Seth sharing their Start Screens, too. Read on and watch the video to see what's on my Lumia 1520.

Review: Body Glove Satin Case for Lumia 520

I'll admit it right off the bat. I was wrong about the Body Glove Satin case for the Lumia 520. When I first saw the Body Glove Satin case in its packaging, I immediately thought that it would be a rubbery case that served little purpose, other than to render the sleek, pleasant-to-hold Lumia 520 bulky and difficult to use. What I found instead was an equally sleek case that compliments the form of its companion device.
