Fight Night is out!

Last years game was easily the best boxing game ever created and all the reviews agree that the new one is even better, and online!

There was a thread a few weeks ago and there seemed to be a lot of interest among the GWJ community for this game. It's out now. Who's gonna get it?

The total control punching system is a ripoff of some older boxing game... ask Edwin for the name, but the first one was pretty cool, although I got tired of it in like 45 minutes.

Either way, wont be buying it. f*ck EA.

Yeah, it''s tempting but I will only buy it used later -- if at all.

Thanks for sharing danny.

First time I hear it''s a ripoff. It needs 2 analog sticks... PS1 game maybe? Anyway, Fight Night pwns it.

EA bought the NFL and ESPN exclusivity, Take Two bought the MLB, Ubisoft bought Vijay. Yeah that kinda sucks but that''s capitalism for you. Can we get over that for dog''s sake?

Ubisoft is french...

EA is teh suck.

No. Never get over it.

Yeah, until they release BF2.

I never did like battlefield, but thats just me...

I think it''s different though, right?

EA says ""NO other company can use NFL player names in its games. We pwn j00.""

Take2 says ""No third party company (EA) can use MLB player names, but if Sony, MS, or Nintendo want to make one, feel free. We sort of pwn j00.""

Ubisoft says ""We get Vijay Singh. We pwn... wait. Did I read that right? VIJAY SINGH?""

Yeah that was for Swampy but let''s make a deal, we start a new thread exclusively to post about all the games we don''t like but I was kinda hoping to hear from people actually interested in that freakin boxing game in this one.

Out of my thread! Trolls!

Oh Jesus F Christ. Here we go again.

*starts crying like a baby*

Okay Certis, just delete this thread, it''s ruined.

lol
Look up Champions Road: Hajime no Ippo and then get back to me on a good boxing game (The 2nd Japanese one).

I liked Fight Night, but I wasn''t very good at it. I''d definitely get it, but I''m not sure if I have the gaming hours available to actually play it.

I did. Anime. PS2. Not listed on Gamerankings and Gametab. 6.9 press average score on gamestats. I''m back to you with a good boxing game. Fight Night Round 2.

Yes Edwin I want that game but you see... My PS2 isnt modded, have a HD or use a slidecard...

I thought it was Jesus H Christ. Is that a Canadian thing?

To clarify, and because further posts of this nature will irritate Green and possibly throw off his golf game: EA Sports is teh suck. BF2 is not a sports title. My hands are clean.

I really liked the first one. It didn''t take long to pick up the punching system, and I really liked the way combos were built naturally by taking the right actions, and not just some automatic sequence that activates when you push certain buttons. When you''re learning, take a heavyweight and give the computer a flyweight. You can still lose, but it lets you last a while longer.

I''m definitely buying Round 2. It looks like a lot of good improvements (like the knockout screen has the images labeled with the appropriate stick for moving them), and adds clinching, so I''m expecting an even better approximation of the sweet science.

Edit: I went ahead and ordered the Xbox version before heading off to work. I had a $15 coupon for the EA online store, so I ordered it direct from EA. I''m an unrepentant sinner.

Actually it''s Jesus S Christ. His middle name was Shubert.

Wasn''t he a composer or somejunk?

Yeah, the bible.

Ooooookay, so far there''s Tanker and me. With the possibility of having Bagga and poopin join later. Danny, do we count you out?

Bagga­, you could literally punch me in the face. How can you wait for that?

That''s tough to resist; it requires a deep hatred of an evil corporation. Over, say, other evil corporations. I''ll fold like a bitch once I see it on ebay. Then I will punch you.

As much as I would love to square off in the ring against Green , I must join the chorus: EA Sports is teh suck.

Kids...

That''s kinda cute though.

From Mr.Green

poopin join later

Sir, you wound me.

I think I felt a tear. Was that a tear?

I... I have something in my eye! <runs>

hahahahahahahaha omg I''m sorry man. IMAGE(http://img116.exs.cx/img116/1231/z7shysterical.gif)

I''ve really read poopinfresh and thought that was a funny name but what the hell...

No problem. I figure you''re just trying to goad me into buying Fight Night 2 so I can try to whoop your virtual ass...

I can''t bring myself to pay $50 for it. If I see it a lot cheaper than that somewhere I''ll pick it up just to play on Live.

Maybe if we play on XboxConnect or Xlinkkai.

You sir are going straight to Hell...

bagga thats fair game... used sales and ebay mean EA gets zero percent profit from your purchase...

I''ll buy it used.

But EB is especially evil, so don''t buy used from them. Thank goodness you didn''t buy new there, their preorder bonus on Round 2 was to kick you in the groin.

Ebay is also evil, and just raised listing fees on all the helpless small merchants, so don''t buy there.
