  • #9 of 2011: Fight Night Champion
    Posted December 14th, 2011 at 2:45 pm 5 Comments »
    EA Sports took a risk with Fight Night Champion making it their first ever M-rated title. In a sense they had to do something creative as boxing games simply haven't been reaching the wide audience that they used to. The 'Champion' story mode was definitely intriguing but short - while other critical areas of the game ultimately failed to impress.  (more…)...

    The second patch for Fight Night Champion which was detailed here last week has been pushed live for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. As seems to be the case with everything Fight Night related the initial response has been sharply mixed. Many of the adjustments that had been made through the 'Tuner Updates' had been rolled back and re-worked with the patch.

  • Fight Night Champion Gets Another Tuner
    Posted April 28th, 2011 at 9:10 am 3 Comments »
    The ability to deliver "tuner sets", gameplay related tweaks that don't have to go through the typical patch approval process, has allowed for EA Sports developers to react to community feedback in a more timely and consistent manner. In the case of Fight Night Champion however the tuners have been more calculated in their release, with the first coming during the early demo, a second that coinciding with a comprehensive patch, and now a third that has just arrived. Jab spamming had been ...
