Send Us Your Fight Night Champion Questions!

A demo of EA's latest boxing sim has arrived in the GameSpot offices. What do you want to know?

In case you haven't heard, the latest entry in EA's venerable Fight Night franchise will be taking a slightly different approach from previous games in the series. Dubbed Fight Night Champion, this latest game in the series will be the first to feature an "M for Mature" rating. At first glance, this has the potential to offer a more brutally authentic boxing experience than we've seen before. After all, we are talking about a sport where two men pummel each other repeatedly here.

But, naturally, diehard Fight Night fans will probably have far more questions than just "How bloody is it?" Fortunately, EA has just sent us an early build of the game. We're looking to see what kind of questions you guys have about Fight Night Champion. Curious about the roster? The Career mode? How authentic Manny Pacquiao's facial hair looks? Whatever you want to know, leave a comment below and we'll answer the most interesting questions in another blog entry next week.

So what are you waiting for? Post some questions!

I'm completely disappointed with FNC demo. Here I am using button controls and it's not accurately on the punch . It's off by 1-2 seconds off. EA , you definitely disappoint me. I rather play FN4 than FNC at the mean time. The controls are bad even with button controls. If I was going to rank this demo game. I give it a 3 out of 10. Some of you people put your game on You Tube. You guys are terrible fighters. Just watch them fight!

@dallasguy775 - Button controls aren't for a simulation type game.. They are for button mashers.. If you want to spam buttons to punch, go play Don King Prizefighter, or Rocky.. Fight Night is a sports simulation.. That would be like taking out the play choices between runs in a Madden game.. I assume EA added them in because they are a developer who likes to appeal to everybody - Hence why they turned the game into a slug fest opposed to a TRUE boxing simulator.. Like all great games, I can see FN taking a turn for the worse.. It's happened many times.. Splinter Cell being a prime example..

is there an online tournament feature to where 16, 24, or 32 players join to compete with each other to enter a final match to win a trophy or some other type of content/rewards?

@dallasguy775 - Concerning the button controls...They did add button controls in a patch after some people were outraged that it wasn't in the game. So, they did listen to feedback. Personally, I preferred the total punch control, as pulling off combos was much more satisfying than spamming buttons. But EA still listened to feedback by simplifying the total punch controls even more. Instead of pulling off the different gestures on the RS (which again, I didn't mind), they simplified it more by basing it on the direction that you push. Some people complained that the gestures were too difficult to pull off quickly.

Added, that all these questions should of been done with "Fight Night 4", as again. Another disappointing factor that EA Sport will never listen to us boxing fans.

You guys have great questions that EA Sports will not answer. EA Sport will never listen to us. Especially, most of us demanded back button configuration within "Fight Night 4 ". Did EA Sport delivered it yet? HELL NO! Who cares what we think. EA Sport will deliver another disappointing boxing game.

Are you able to "chase down" your opponent? In the previous game when you hurt someone, all they had to do was keep backing away till they recovered, and if your guy was slower, you couldn't catch up to them. Is there an ability to almost run, or speed up to get to cut off the ring?

Are there decisions in the campaign/storyline that can alter the game's ending or way you have to play?

How have the mini-games improved? Did you get the Demo thats coming to XBOX Live on Feb 1st? Or an actual demo copy? Because if its the XBL Demo then not many of these questions are going to be answered. However tell me about the mini-gmaes and training.

One of the biggest problems big fans of the series had with FNR4 was the inability to "punch on the move".. Meaning, in FNR3, you could take a step back/forward and punch - Both being separate movements and animations - Acted individually of eachother, making punching on the move possible.. With FNR4, if you wanted to take a step back/forward and punch, when step is initiated, and followed immediately by a punch, the stepping animation was stopped to make way for the punch.. This is VERY frustrating - It forces the player to either stand in one spot and have a slug-match, or just dance around aimlessly.. Which is NOT boxing.. I REALLY hope this issue is fixed with Champion.. Any clarification on this issue would be great!

Can I make the character look like me down to the tee? Will there be any DLC? Can you upload a song and use it when your character comes out? Can I wear a head band to go in the ring like tito trinidad used to do? Will there be online play of so will be lag free?

If this game goes back to buttons it'll be great! If not I won't buy it! Analog punching is trash!

what will the "getting up" game be like? is the recovery game in between rounds any different? what has changed about the character creation system? will gear cost be more realistic? i remember paying almost $1 mil for a pair of shorts in fight night round 3.

Bring back the 'Option' of using buttons, it simply makes Jabbing much simpler, i still use sticks for hooks, Uppercuts etc.

I've already got Fight night 4 but have no desire to pick this new one up @all without any Move supporting options, which is something i was really looking forwards to doing, with any future fight night games, Sorry EA im gonna skip this round :(

Does it have support for the Xbox Vision camera like the last 2 games? How does the button controls differ from round 4?

So, does it still feel like your movement around the ring is restricted or stuck in quick sand causing every fight to turn into a brawl?

will money play a role? the greatest boxing game ever was "tv sports: boxing". you didn't have to grind through repetitive training games before each fight. you use your money to buy better equipment and coaches.

Compatible with Kinect? Are we able to use buttons instead of the analog stick?

if u bring back the buttons, I'LL BUY 2 COPIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have they added anything to the single player career mode to make it feel like more than just a stat grind? Have they added any gameplay between fights more than just training? And are you still fighting a bunch of anonymous guys until you reach the top 10? With a name like Fight Night Champion one would think not.

kornkid606
kornkid606

Have they added anything to the ring approach sequence to make it feel more like a real boxing event? by this I mean a posse (more than just you cornermen), security, fans crowding along the side, a bunch of people in the ring instead of just the 2 fighters and the ref. Basically have they added any of the little aesthetic things that make it feel more like a real fight night?

Will this support the new gamer face? How bout ps move? Will the button layout be as intuitive as the analog punching?

My questions are: Is Floyd Mayweather in this game? Does it have ps move support?

I second the footwork question, and would like to know how the added variety of punches to the total punch control affect the game play? Example, does it require too much accuracy where more often than not your throwing the wrong punch(or the wrong variation of the punch).

DaWarthog

Did they improve the footwork in that game. Or do they still move like zombies

Will jabs actually count for something, and did they get rid of that terrible counter punching system.

In career mode are the training simulations worth doing this time round or are they impossible just like FN4, i actually want to build my fighters stats up rather than always simulating becuase there so damn hard.

What kinds of improvements are there from FNR4 in terms of physics and animations?

I really want to know if button contols are in as well. I HATE the anolog controls for punching. And seeing as how fight night round 4 dropped in price so quickly I will just wait for a bargin bin price if botton controls are an update again like last year.
