What the gently caress, Max Holloway didn't have a striking coach until after he lost to Conor. With his odd face, catchphrase, Diaz brand chin and desire to represent a people and/or culture by beating the poo poo out of people this might just be the perfect fighter

+ he won a split decision against leonard garcia

The beta for EA UFC 3 is open for a few days (edit: err, or until midnight tonight, apparently. Somehow I missed it when it went live a few days ago). They completely redesigned the stand-up, adding some neat stuff like short elbows and intercept knees from when you have your guard up, much more effective leg kicks and body shots, the option to transition into a d'arce choke if you stumble someone in a certain way, and a cartwheel kick for Anthony Pettis that you can get uppercutted out of mid-air with (and also has you lying flat on your back, not moving, if you use it to score a KO, making it seem like you knocked yourself out along with your opponent).

The new stand-up controls seem to be as impenetrable as some people found the ground fighting to be in the last game, so it probably won't appeal to anyone looking to spend money on a simple pick-up-and-play multiplayer game, but so far playing rock em sock em robots with random players while trying to figure out the new system has been a good time.

I look forward to the UFC adding a new weight class immediately after release, making the roster out of date instantly, in the time honoured tradition of UFC games

EA also doubled down hard on the lootbox poo poo affecting actual gameplay despite the recent issues they just had with Battlefront 2 so lol at anyone who buys that guy or the microtransactions.

I guess that story took off because of the Star Wars debacle, but it's a pretty big misunderstanding. The game isn't any more pay to win than the last one was, and the pay-to-win stuff doesn't affect the regular PvP mode. You were playing (or paying) for loot boxes in Ultimate Team in UFC 2, and from what I understand, that's sorta how Ultimate Team works in all EA sports titles. Ultimate Team was already stacked against you if you didn't make a 7-foot guy, and you could easily get matched against someone who had insane stats in all areas, so it's definitely a bullshit mode, but actually playing ranked mode with UFC fighters is a separate thing with no pay-to-win aspect to it.

Theres like a 60% chance you get matched up against someone who dumped a ton of money into the game and if you get touched once or twice its a flash KO. However, serving a whale his lunch by taking their max height, max striking stats dude down and GnPing to victory is really rewarding.

dudes get real mad.

I would just play BJJ/wrestling stlyle in the last one and got a bunch of hate mail it was fun but it was a challenge to beat guys with roided up 100 stats 5 star move cards in everything.

I don't wanna buy the new one but seeing Tony Ferguson's iminari roll into heel hook with 2 gates to the submission makes me want to.

Actually it is very realistic. Lootboxes are the steroids and the ability to cut wrestling promos while high on cocaine of the gaming world.

Yeah - tried the demo last night.
My days of "High Kick!!!" are over. After trying a bunch in the first 2 min of the round, my stamina was already maxed to half. I should have been playing as Aldo.
Also didn't like the punching at all.
Might pass on this one.

He utilizes the same logic autoerotic asphyxiators do with lemons. That's why he can't be knocked out.

You bite the lemon just before passing out and the tartness will wake you up so you don't choke to death.

Not that I know from personal experience, of course. Ahem.

Yeah I didn't watch it live, but I did spoil the fight for myself before I watched it so I knew that Overeem didn't literally die or anything. And there is one replay where the fans don't even cheer or anything when the punch lands, they're just kind of shocked and stunned.

Overeem used to be on the other end of that.
