Female fighters will be playable in the new UFC game


7:00 AM on 09.05.2013



For the first time in the history of the official UFC game series, female fighters will be playable in the upcoming EA Sports UFC.

“This is a great moment for videogames and for Mixed Martial Arts,” said Dean Richards, General Manager, EA Sports UFC. Dana White, UFC President, also added that “since we added the Women’s Bantamweight division earlier this year, the women have impressed everyone.” 

The full roster hasn't been announced yet, but Batamweight champion Ronda Rousey and top contender Miesha Tate will be featured in the game.

EA Sports UFC shows off its fighting women

The game does look pretty impressive, but is it just me or does the whole thing sort of lack grace? The fighters seem a little more awkward and stilted than I would like. Of course, just because there isn't lifelike fidelity doesn't mean it doesn't play well (Dale was impressed with it). Just the sequence around 40 seconds looks a bit goofy.more

EA Sports UFC fighters look great, have detailed nipples

When I previewed EA Sports UFC last E3 my intent wasn't to write erotica, but I did, a little. Similarly, my intent when I watched this UFC trailer wasn't to focus on the highly detailed, true-to-life nipple recreation on ea...more

Hollywood loves the E3 trailer for Metal Gear Solid V

It should go without saying that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a great showing at E3. Not only was the official trailer a stellar piece of work, and a big indication of how grim the game will be, but the 30-minute ...more

Photo realistic cat heads in Wii U's The Devil's Third

It's weird clicking a mature content warning on a video on Nintendo's YouTube with Mario staring innocently at me. But the collaboration between Itagaki and Nintendo for The Devil's Third, revived as a Wii U exclusive, is we...more
