Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

‘UFC Undisputed 2010′ Trailer Promises Kimbo Haymakers


Saturday night’s Spike Video Game Awards crowned UFC Undisputed 2009 as the year’s Best Individual Sports Game, beating out such notable titles as Fight Night Round 4 and Wii Sports Resort. And while that’s not a huge accomplishment considering that the UFC and Spike are in bed together and the whole broadcast was basically just one big advertisement, the ceremony did offer a first look at next year’s installment of Undisputed.

We begin with a montage of UFC stars telling us what being a fighter does and doesn’t require. To be honest, it sounds like a very demanding profession. Tito Ortiz tries so hard to sell his line, God bless him. Though there isn’t much actual game-footage to judge, some minor improvements are on display: Anderson Silva switches from southpaw to orthodox stance. Frank Mir is held against the fence. And of course, Kimbo Slice joins the cast, swinging some wide-ass punches at a faceless opponent. UFC Undisputed 2010 is slated to hit stores on May 25th — what improvements would you like to see in the updated version?

Thank you for making the sincere attempt to discuss this. I feel fairly strong about it and
would like to read more. If it’s OK, as you learn more in depth knowledge, would you mind adding more posts similar to this one with more information? It would be extremely helpful and useful for me

I hope it has some more authentic Dana White soundclips. Not enough fucks, shits and pussy in the first one.

Maybe an unlockable Dana White character, complete w/ aerobics uniform and matching wrist bands. He'd always show up for Brock Lesnar and Chuck Liddell fights with his hand down their pants.

2.) Use the cage for takedowns.

3.) The ability to find your friends online and beat the shit out of them/have them beat the shit out of you. (Maybe you can do already that, I sure as hell haven't figured out how yet)

4.) If I make my Create A Fighter 23-years old, he should be 28 five years later. Somehow this concept escaped the developers in UFC 2009.

5.) Why can't my fighter stand southpaw?

6.) For the love of god get some more songs at the menus. I can tell exactly what menu someone is at without looking because each one has it's own shitty loop that has been burned into my ears forever. Now they look like Randy's ears which I'll admit is bad-ass but I shouldn't get that from a video game. Speaking of which, It'd be cool if your C.A.F. could get cauliflower ear and his nose smashed down permanently (Like Diego, even before Penn) the older he gets.

7.) Yes to Kalib Starnes' "Escape the Octagon" (@Schlong tattoo - That comment made my day)

Artof8limbs and PenisTattoo have great lists, for different reasons. I give em both +1.
Activision (and especially Bob Kotick) can kiss my effin a-hole. Unfortunately, i will still occassionally buy games that the company publishes, as they tend to invest money in studios that turn out quality products. Then they finance sequels and run those titles into the ground.
THQ is pretty lazy and conservative, and i wouldn't cross the street to check out their content. Unless there is a license involved that i am already interested in.
It really is a shame (for we the gamers) that EA and Zuffa could not see eye to eye. It would have been nice to see a top flight UFC game. However, it's possible that Yuke's/THQ will put more resources into this series and turn out a high-quality product. This is a chance for Yuke's to go head to head with EA and they have an advantage with the UFC license behind them.
i said it was possible.

Entrances are lame. Customizable entrances are lamer. Go play one of those fake ass soap opera wrastling games.
YesCartwheel- December 15, 2009 at 7:13 am
I gotta believe it took like 30 takes for Tito get that line out.
mean sean bean- December 15, 2009 at 2:08 am
Or a Staph Dodge training mode, in which your Brazilian fighter must avoid being taken down to the toxic staph-infested training mats.
mean sean bean- December 15, 2009 at 2:06 am
Or a Tito Excuse Mode, in which you have to come up with excuses about why you gassed and lost a fight.
mean sean bean- December 15, 2009 at 2:04 am
There should be a "rival promotion" mode in which your fighter can jump for more money to an upstart MMA company which does two pay-per-views then folds, leaving your fighter blacklisted from the UFC forever.
provrorsbarn- December 15, 2009 at 1:01 am
u get 20g achievement if u make a punch with thales leites
robthom- December 14, 2009 at 9:45 pm

Lol at Kalib mode.
Or they could call it the "get kimbo a win" challenge.
ben dover- December 14, 2009 at 8:45 pm
i LOL'd @ penis tattoo of...

Kalib Starnes escape the octagon "challenge mode"

time limits would be a major factor in that
meanfinger- December 14, 2009 at 8:13 pm
oh yeah.. and if EA is thinkin.. they will make a big greazy beard in the create a fighter if u catch my drift.

hmmmmmmm..does this mean hendo is gonna be in it now??
meanfinger- December 14, 2009 at 8:11 pm
oh yeah.. the thing that pissed me off the most is in career mode.. your fighter doesnt age. thats fuckin lame.... even madden (for all u haters) got that right..

and maybe add some medical suspension.. if u get sanchezed, maybe your next fights u will lose a lil bit on your cut rating and your scar tissue will catch up to you
coronaking- December 14, 2009 at 7:52 pm
Career mode needs to be stepped way up. Gimme a signature more and an entrance. There should actually be a difference in the camps, maybe different ones are available depending on where you fight out of. More of a lead in before you get a UFC contract. Optional strength and conditioning mini-games. I also don't want my career to end for no fucking reason.

Create a fighter: Either give me more than 8 fucking nick-names to call me for my entire career. Maybe you are given one after a few wins?

Each fighter should be more distinctive too. Not a boxer is a boxer unless it's BJ Penn.
KillSwitch_E- December 14, 2009 at 6:55 pm
I kind of half expected Dana White to come out with his popular line "So, you want to be a FUCKING FIGHTER"
Penis tattoo of invincibility- December 14, 2009 at 6:25 pm
So many things:

1: Entrances, specifically creatable ones. I want my create-a-fighter cartwheeling down to the octagon to 'Don't Cha' by the Pussycat Dolls while buttloads of pyro explodes in time with the music.

2: Improved Create-a-fighter. THQ has proved they can do it with the Smackdown games. Throw all this silly po-faced realism out of the window and allow full clothing on fighters. If I want to have a Hitler / Jesus lightweight brawl then I should be allowed to do it. Move over Guida, the real 'carpenter' is here. And he might actually tap.

3: Customisable move sets, again like the smackdown games allow me to pick from a number of moves of different styles.

4: Leg kicks that do damage

5: Slams that do damage

6: Unlockable Dana White character. And the ability to get him in a head lock and make him tap from slaps to the top of his shiny dome.

7: Kalib Starnes' 'Escape the Octagon' challenge mode.

8: TUF themed career mode, where you have to run around the house randomly attacking other fighter, getting pissed and eating body fluids in order to increase the ratings.

9: A 'Dancing with the Stars' mini-game.

Fightlinker posted side by side comparisons of pics of the UFC game and preview pics of the EA game.

Even though UFC kind of deserves it for how they treated Fitch and everyone, I almost felt kind of sorry for them.

They're gonna look like fools when the EA game drops!

As far as graphics its right up there with fight night.
The UFC game looked like a PS1 game next to it!
It looked really sad and pitiful.

BTW: I guess spike will have to give the sports game award to madden or soccer next year if they dont want to piss off UFC or look like shills by giving it to UFC'10 over the EA game.

Although if UFC sells really well, which it could with the brand attached (and ooweee, you do get to play as kimbo!), then they can just give the award based on sales I guess.

smellcheck would.

looking bad. ea mma will rock
robthom- December 14, 2009 at 5:39 pm
I agree about EA, but I dont know if you remember Medal of Honor?

Its fallen off really bad and isn't worth playing anymore. But the first one circa 1999 was a major splash.
4 years later activision jumped on the WW2 bandwagon.

I have played COD before, I didn't think it was notable. If fact I taped over it ;) because it was so extra medium.

The graphics on the new ones look nice and all, but as far as I can tell there is no unique reason for modern warfare to be selling better than any other number of better looking FPS's except that sheep like to copy whatever they see other sheep doing, and then it snowballs like nazi germany.
KidDinomite- December 14, 2009 at 5:29 pm
I think that certain developers can pretty much write their own checks, depending on the quality and the contract they may have with the publisher. If you look at Infinity Ward and Modern Warfare 2 and the back catalogue of Call of Duty games, they have been among the most successful franchises which have made billions of dollars for Activision. The guys who run Infinity Ward are making BANK.

Great game development doesn't come cheap unless you have inhouse developers like EA, which is an evil, EVIL corporation.
robthom- December 14, 2009 at 5:28 pm
@ jimbonics,

I understand the difference. I was just using it as an overall umbrella because although activision has pretty much become investment bankers in the process, they have to be ultimately held accountable for the overall quality of what they choose to invest in and publish IMO.

No they dont even do any lifting anymore.

They liscence, buy or imitate brands that a board of suits have decided should guarantee some sales. Then farm it out to the cheapest developers they can find to increase profits a bit more without any concern for the quality of the finished product.

Not impressed.
In fact I find it somewhat offensive in any arena, not just video games.
KidDinomite- December 14, 2009 at 5:19 pm
One more thing, the developer should have individual fighter stances, like how Machida has a wide Karate stance but he almost leans back with his upper torso.

Oh and the thing that this game REALLY needs is fighter entrances with the ability to drop your entrance song into the game ala Fight Night Round 4. Make my JKD dude walk into the octagon while "You're the Best Around" plays loudly.....
robthom- December 14, 2009 at 5:10 pm
@ smellcheck,
Your really are a sales fan aren't you.

I beg to differ with your final assertion though, they publish dogshit!
Almost without exception!

Investing their ill got gains from movie and TV liscenses in devouring the developer of warcraft after it became popular doesn't suddenly make them have any taste or quality control.
Unless of course your a big fan of corporate maneuvering and sales figures.

Nor does imitating rhythm games 10 years later and then advertising the fuck out of it on MTV for pavlovian droolers.
