Buttons are so yesterday. One thing that appeared in Fight Night Round 3 but didn’t carry over to Fight Night Round 4 is the ability to punch with buttons. The move, of course, was the subject of many message board disputes: some people aren’t buying with the revolutionary “Fight Stick” design is selling. But know this -- Electronic Arts is aware of the frustration and has at least floated the idea of adding button punch controls ... as downloadable content.

“There is no option for face button punching in the final version, but we are investigating providing the option via DLC,” Fight Night Round 4 producer Brian Hayes said in an interview with IGN.

Oddly enough, the lack button controls haven’t slowed down the punch pace. If you’re adventurous, try to play a match online. If you fight a person not going the “run away and throw a haymaker every four seconds” route, chances are you’ll fight a pugilist spamming the stick as if it were buttons anyway. We dread this sort of cheap downloadable content like no tomorrow, but at least the effects will (probably) be minimal.

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer

I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net....more
