Keighley vs. Moore: a FaceBreaker showdown


7:33 PM on 06.08.2008



Just because Peter Moore is the head of EA Sports doesn’t mean that he’s a stuffy old “suit”. He’s a pretty skilled gamer in his own right, and that was put to the test on this past Friday’s episode of GameTrailers TV. Moore faced off against the show’s host, the affable Geoff Keighley, in a match in FaceBreaker, the upcoming arcade-style boxing videogame from EA.

FaceBreaker will be the first title to be released under EA’s new “EA SPORTS Freestyle” sub-brand, a label whose games will be aimed squarely at the growing “casual” sports gaming market. Of course, the requisite buzzwords associated with casual gaming are in full effect here: “pick-up-and-play”, “inclusive”, and “casual” -- not that that’s a bad thing, of course. In fact, I’m really looking forward to FaceBreaker, because I’d love to have something sports-related to play with my non-sports-gaming friends.

The video above doesn’t just comprise the Keighley-Moore fight; much of it consists of an extended interview regarding the game, as well as some trash talking. The whole thing is three minutes and forty seconds long, but if you’re solely interested in the fight, jump in at the two-and-a-half-minute mark. I won’t give away the winner; you’ll just have to watch for yourself.

Of note is that both men played with created characters that bore striking resemblances to their real-life counterparts; apparently, you’ll be able to use the Xbox Live Vision Camera to insert yourself into the game (no word yet on whether the game will also be compatible with the PlayStation Eye). FaceBreaker is currently set for a September 5th release; for a number of character videos, check out the game’s page at GameTrailers.

[Thanks, Justin!]

In BaraBariBall you lose your balls when you jump

I played BaraBariBall over a year ago at GDC 2013 and it was fun as heck. I liked it BaraBari much. But it's still not out. Not yet, anyways. It's coming this year to PC, PS4, and PS3 as a part of the amazing Sportsfriends. ...more

Review: MLB 14 The Show

I was ready for last year’s The Show to be its PS3 swansong, I was feeling it. It’s not that it wasn’t good. It was as good as it ever was. But there were signs of age. The same old horrifying fan models in ...more

See the ugly side of football in Dirty Sexy Soccer

Football sure has its ugly side, whether it's match fixing, hooliganism, and John Terry's wandering hands. Football Manager, for all its accuracy, never takes into account any of these things, but Dirty Sexy Soccer does. It'...more
