  • Hands-on With FNR4
    Posted May 19th, 2009 at 9:12 am 48 Comments
    As you may already know I was fortunate to visit EA Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia to check out the next installment of the Fight Night series. Let us also remember that the boxing community has had to wait 3 years for the second game on next generation consoles since Fight Night Round 3 was released in February of 2006. It should also be noted that EA Canada took over development for this game and it appears to have been a good choice so far. (more…)...
  • Discussion Continues About FNR4 Controls
    Posted May 17th, 2009 at 1:56 pm 98 Comments
    Ever since it was revealed that the button control scheme was removed completely for Fight Night Round 4, in turn forcing Total Punch Control with the right analog, it has been a hot topic of discussion.Yesterday the EA Canada community manager responded basically stating that that the button controls wouldn't be returning and to learn to like TPC or move on. The posting has since been deleted from the EA Forum. I still don't understand the thinking behind this decision or the way in whic...
  • Latest Update on FNR4
    Posted May 16th, 2009 at 3:07 pm 70 Comments
    With the demo for Fight Night Round 4 out (to Gamestop preorders) and with decidedly mixed reaction, producer Brian Hayes made sure to address some of the common complaints being made in a posting on the EA Sports forum. If these issues were addressed as stated than most will probably be satisfied with the difference between demo and final version. Generally though the demo is fairly representative of the final product. Also of note is that while the demo will be out for everyone else on ...
  • FNR4 Highlight Clips
    Posted May 14th, 2009 at 1:17 pm 158 Comments
    One of the features recently discussed in various media articles on Fight Night Round 4 is the ability to take replays and upload them to EA Sports World. At any point in a fight you can pause the game, go into replay mode for that round, and cut out a portion to upload. I've always enjoyed the highlight features in games and hope there is a way to save them following the conclusion of online fights also. The demo actually contains this same functionality and a bunch of highlights are bei...
  • FNR4 Demo Footage
    Posted May 14th, 2009 at 7:40 am 266 Comments
    With the FNR4 demo now available to those who preordered through Gamestop there are a bunch of new videos making their way out. So far it seems as if the impressions of the game are mixed from those who have played the demo and the comments made from watching the footage. From my short time having played the game it is graphically and technically impressive and certainly seemed fun but the issues being noted appear to be justified. I went through and located a few of the demo videos that ...
  • FNR4 Demo Out Tomorrow
    Posted May 13th, 2009 at 12:38 pm 106 Comments
    The demo for Fight Night Round 4, which features the Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton match-up, will be out on the 360 and PS3 tomorrow. Unfortunately it will only be available to those who have preordered and received a special download code from Gamestop. There are a limited amount of codes that are being provided to those who preordered the game in a store or online. This is a practice that I am not in favor of and it is a shame that EA is taking that route. It is one thing to provide in...
  • Feedback Leads to Taylor Fix
    Posted May 13th, 2009 at 7:39 am 38 Comments
    While graphically Fight Night Round 4 appears to be one of the best sports titles this generation there were some comments made after initial screenshots of the actual boxer representations. One specifically that was at the forefront of discussion was that of Jermain Taylor. Basically he looked overweight and out of shape. In response to that the FNR4 developers have adjusted Taylor's model based on the feedback from the community. Continue on to see a before and after comparison. (mo...

  • Full Fight Night Round 4 Roster
    Posted May 3rd, 2009 at 5:45 pm 342 Comments
    The entire Fight Night Round 4 roster has been revealed in Playstation Magazine (via Stick Skills). In total there are 49 boxers included in the game with the potential of more through downloadable content. The Photo Face feature will also allow for creation (and hopefully sharing) of new boxers so the possibilities are endless. Continue on to view the entire list and leave your thoughts on the FNR4 roster in the comments. (more…)...
  • More Boxers For FNR4
    Posted April 10th, 2009 at 10:02 pm 66 Comments
    Released two weeks ago the Heavyweight roster for Fight Night Round 4 was received with some level of disappointment. Big dollar requirements to sign each individual is likely the reason for that, so other weight classes may be more fleshed out. IGN has posted screenshots of five more boxers that will be in the game. You can check out those screens here. Included are Roy Jones Jr, Sergio Mora, Kelly Pavlik, Vinny Paz, and Jermain Taylor. Some of them were already known but Pavlik and Paz ...
