IGN has just released a new batch of screenshots featuring previously unseen boxers for EA Sports Fight Night Round 4. Here are the screens for your viewing pleasure:
What I could notice from these screenshots was:
- Facial damage system looking very good. Just look at the simple, realistic cut over Pavlik’s eye in one pic or the swollen cheek on Roy Jones Jr.
- 1-2 more venues shown
- Kelly Pavlik is in.
- Winky Wright and Ricky Hatton look perfect.
- The gloves on some boxers get bloody.
- Detail on audience. A trainer has a VIP pass with detail in one screenshot.
- Gloves actually look like they are making contact. On one screenshot, glove gets deformed on contact.
- The Winky-Mora screenshot (best screenshot for now) showing their footwork and Mora getting close to Winky.
- James Toney seems to be looking better. His nose is spot-on from the side.
The boxers confirmed with this set of pictures were:
- Roy Jones Jr.
- Jermain Taylor (was he ever LHW?)
- Kelly Pavlik
- Ricky Hatton
Today I take my first stab at writing a blog. Why, you may ask. Well, perhaps I find myself bored at times or I just want to make myself heard about some of my interests. Be that as it may, I welcome you to my first blog post in what will be called Fight Night Nation.
As I said, this blog will deal primarily with some of my interests, mainly the Fight Night series and boxing. I have been a fan of boxing for ten to twelve years now. At first I just focused on the boxers from my country, Puerto Rico, later started to gain interest in boxing in general. And that is what brought me to boxing video games.
I started with the regular Knockout Kings games and then with the Fight Night series…yes, I did not buy 2k Sports Prizefighter after reading subpar reviews from sites and users alike. Throughout all Fight Night releases I have always tried to involve myself with the community by creating leagues and sites dedicated to the game, yet they never last for long. With the impending release of Fight Night Round 4, my aim now is to give a fan’s point of view on all news and previews for this future release as well as comment on the latest boxing events.
So, I hope you all enjoy the blog. Be sure to leave your comments below the posts and let me and others know what you think about it all.
