A third patch for EA Sports UFC is due out soon and the company has released the details on theÂ more major changes to expect with it. The two earlier patches, and it looks like this upcoming one, will have helped to dramatically alter the gameplay experience. At release EA UFC pleased just about no one and it showed in reviews and sales numbers. To their credit EA seems to have taken the feedback to heart and done a lot of good with the post-release support.
A video has accompanied the news highlighting the two new fighters that will also be added:Â Gunnar Nelson andÂ Tim Kennedy. Anthony Johnson had been planned for this update but was removed after recent domestic violence allegations were followed by the UFC suspending him indefinitely.

It’s an all-NBA edition of The Daily Dish! Today the focus is on the news related to NBA 2K15’s MyPark and The Stage and NBA Live 15’s gameplay improvements on offense.
Earlier today 2K Sports released a trailer for NBA 2K15’s MyPark and teased The Stage. Now the company has provided expanded details on both.
MyPark and the Jordan Rec Center within it sound compelling. As far as The Stage goes one has to wonder how 2K Sports is getting around this being considered gambling, because it really is, and there are legalities to consider in that. A 45K VC game (the max on PS4) is for all intents and purposes putting $9 on the line – though that cost or the winnings ends up being split between the participants. The Stage is exclusive to PS4 for the first month.Â Read more
EA Sports today released a new video spotlighting some of the improvements being delivered in NBA Live 15 specific to the offensive side of the ball. The company has yet to do much of anythingÂ to demonstrate how Live 15 will be a better product than last year’s but the examples notedÂ here are a good start at attempting to communicate them. The video shows where work has been done to enhance passing, dribbling, shooting, and contact animations. The three week delay has NBA Live 15 set to release on October 28.
With under a week until release 2K Sports has finally introduced a look at improvements to The Park, the online mode introduced in Xbox One and PS4 2K14, now branded as MyPark in NBA 2K15. The trailer doesn’t go into great detail but does mention earning “Rep” and the ability to play with friends as “Squads”. There’s the “Jordan Rec Center” where games become 5v5 with four quarters and NBA rules – partially replicating the “Crew” mode so many desired. Also at the end is a tease of “The Stage” which will be exclusive to the PS4 for the first month before being opened on XB1 on 11/7 and looks as though you’ll be able to wager VC on games there.
With NBA 2K15 out next week naturally a lot of the recent news has been concentrated on the game. In today’s Daily Dish the focus centers onÂ the player ratings for NBA 2K15 now known for the entire league and the odd marketing strategy that has left several modes shrouded in mystery even still. There’s also a look ahead to the next Madden NFL 15 roster update and a reminder to get entries in forÂ the NBA 2K15 giveaway.
For the first time in a very long time there was nothing newsworthy to write about today (that shouldn’t be the case throughout this week with NBA 2K15 still to announce features) so I tackle a few different topics with The Daily Dish. NBA 2K15 won’t have its servers turned on until next Tuesday and that’s reason for some concern, discussion has again been raised over how to best implement penalties in Madden, more top player ratings are out for NBA Live 15, and a reminder to enter in the NBA 2K15 giveaway!
