The Line Drive 2/27

Posted February 27th, 2010 at 6:38 pm

The Line Drive is a weekly collection of news, links, and updates that didn’t necessarily warrant their own postings.

  • THQ has released a new blog for UFC Undisputed 2010 that covers submissions. They have also put out the first Q&A responding to questions submitted by the community.
  • The pre-order bonus for UFC  Undisputed 2010 will offer a code to download four exclusive fighters. The first has been announced as James McSweeney. The other three, though not officially revealed, are expected to be fellow TUF 10 participants Roy Nelson (winner), Brendan Schaub (runner-up), and Marcus Jones. Gamestop is currently the only outlet that has this offer listed.
  • A new fighter has been revealed for EA Sports MMA. Luke Rockhold has won six straight fights and currently has a 7-1 record. The announcement was made coming off his victory on Friday night at the “Strikeforce Challengers” show.
  • SCEA has posted two more blogs for MLB 10: The Show. The first covers improvements made to Road to the Show mode, with IGN also providing a hands-on preview of RTTS. The other blog focuses on discussing and displaying some of the elements of the game that add to realism.
  • The patch for the PC version of NBA 2K10, five months in the making, is apparently still in the works. The PC version has been stuck without a single patch, two of which already attempted to address some of the fundamental problems with NBA 2K10 on the consoles. PC gamers have been without any online functionality for the majority of the time since release.
  • With the NFL combine underway and teams making other transactions I’ve already found myself tracing out changes to my initial mock draft. I will be posting a new one sometime next week.
