That's major news and a huge blow to boxing. MMA has pulled ahead of boxing in the gaming arena.

Yussarian - I am concerned every time EA gets their hands on a game. They used to be awesome, now I feel they suck all the life out of games, while at the same time come up with online schemes to make you pay periodically. But maybe that is the trend.

They are doing it from their Vancouver studio though, which is their premier group. That's where FIFA and NHL are made, the two best EA Sports titles.

Undisputed 3 was the only undisputed title better than ea mma, the rest of them didn't even come close IMO.

beasly213 - I just really hope that they let you have guys in different weight classes fight against each other. I want to match up Mighty Mouse vs. Big Foot Silva! Who cares if it's ridiculous it's a video game I should be able to match up whoever I want.

this

the old knockout king boxing games would let you and it was cool as hell

even in EA's Fight Night (boxing) games you can choose boxers that are up to 2 wieght classes different.


U can do this in the last Undisputed game in event mode...pick ur first fighter then hit B to back out (xbox) of that fight...then hit A to go back into weight class selection...but when u hit A hold in LEFT or RIGHT and it will automatically start changing weight class...u have to let go and hope it lands on the weight class u wanted (but u can keep doin this - only takes 1 or 2 goes to select correct weight classes)...and u can have wotever u want...mightty mouse vs overeem is a classic. Juts thought id let u know....
ps my instructions r shit but u can google for better ones

Nexuscrawlers - 

the striking in EA MMA was so much better than the UFC game. I am glad they are using Fight Night as a base. Those games are awesome.

obviously EA MMA had fewer moves and fighters, but it was thei FIRST MMA game. THQ had several tries and still made a mediocre (although fun) game.

i liked UFC3 a lot, but i just wish it was EA MMA but with the UFC3 roster and game modes (tournament, title mode, etc)


now you got your wish.

CRMartin11 - Jon Jones should be on the cover. Jose Aldo would be a good pick also.
Dana said today that the US version will be determined via online voting. Other regions will be given various other covers. Phone Post

I would rather pay a monthly payment to have ea keep up the servers for ea mma than to have to go back to ufc3. E a killed ufc 3 in a lot of aspects and didn't even try. Now they have time to learn Nd to grow, thq had to go learn bjj to get a decent ground game understanding, should have took some boxing and kickboxing classes also.

I hope they have a ultimate fighter mode and a career mode for the current guys like they did with bishop in FN champion.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'd like career mode to start in 2000 with the Zuffa era or the TUF 1 finale. Let my fighter grow with the sport and see the debut's of guys like gsp and whatnot. Let me fight tito in his prime then witness the rise of Liddell... or even maybe stop the rise of Liddell. Every career mode in every fighting game is the same. You start this year and you end up fighting a 90 year old Randy Couture for the title in 2029. One of the fight nights had the fighters retire realistically, which only meant most of the greats you wanted to fight would retire right after you fought them and you'd endlessly defend your title against random fictional fighters. Unlike boxing, the UFC has a well recorded history that's owned by the UFC.

Total control is WAY better imo. Also, in EA MMA you can switch the controls to the "arcade-style" with button mashing. Phone Post

EA MMA did not kick ass.

It was a good first effort that got a lot of things right, and a lot of things wrong.

The grappling aspect was miles ahead of UFC Undisputed; but the ground striking and stand up was pretty poor. The strikes were extremely limited and almost everyone had pretty much all the same attacks. There was very, very little variation (a lot like THQ's 2009 game in which you just had a base style). The submission system was definitely better in EA's game, but the variety, again, was very poor; however, it was great feeling like you could go in and "catch" a guy, whereas with THQ you had to work their stamina first or it was hopeless; it was a stamina game, not really a technical game.

The KO and TKO system EA used was also far better.

Stamina, as far as I can remember, was also handled better in EA's game. THQ could never get that right.

But THQ overall had a far better system, as they had more games to get it right with. Fighters really did feel different; there were far, far more position to be put in, there were tons of moves, the EA was a little better, and the game just flowed better and feeled better. EA had a strange feeling to it where things often felt like they were in slow motions; combos and animations just felt slow and weak; it was odd.

EA had a good game - but people saying it was amazing and kicked ass I think are suffering from the classic gaming nostalgia bias. We remember things as just being better than they were, because they were fresh and offered us something different. The game had some great things to build from, but as an overall game it was a good first effort that gave them a lot to build on; which they never ended up doing.

As for EA UFC... Well, I've learned to generally not trust EA and just wait and see how the game is. For the most part, they fuck up their sports games and turn them into arcade fests, but try to pass them as simulation games. We'll see what direction they actually take with this, but I'd also hardly use EA MMA as an indicator as to how this game might play; whether you liked that game or not.
