UFC 2009 pics released

Okay, I’m going to start this off by saying I’m not much of a video game buff any more. Games got too complicated for me after the Super Nintendo. Everyone added 3 controllers and 15 buttons to the fucking joystick, and games started having 6 hours worth of training levels. Fuck that shit. So I’m gonna let Jake dissect the UFC 2009 game when it actually comes out. But for now let me give you my impressions on the screenshots released by

We’re at an interesting point in video game development where the technology is capable of uber-realistic graphics, but the artists and programmers aren’t quite there at being able to harness this shit. While the models for the game look pretty good, half the fighters look like they have serious skin conditions and their facial expressions look about as realistic as a ventriloquist’s doll.

Congrats and all for getting the light to reflect off the gloves and sweat and all of that jazz, but how about trying to get everyone to look less creepy? I mean, take a look at Arianny (and tell me if you think they screwed up on her coloring job and thought she was black):


  • Steve

    The ‘Uncanny Valley’ strikes again.

  • KhrisKiller

    I cant freaking wait for this game!!!!!

  • DannyP72

    Shit they must be useing the Doom 3 engine which make everything shinny.

  • Reverend Clint

    Arianny looks like Rhianna or the IFL card chick

  • crs

    What’s wrong with sistas? There’s nothing wrong with some chocolate once in a while.

  • Joe Biden

    They may have messed up on the coloring scheme but it is no way creepy.

  • Reverend Clint

    Nothing “wrong” with the way the game model looks but thats like trying to make a Tim Sylvia model and coming up with Bob Sapp at the end.

  • pauli


    hmm. the pronunciation doesn’t flow.

    also, beyond agreeing with the uncanny valley issue, forrest needs to get his goddamn knees tight. based on his facial expression, he’s definitely putting pressure on his cup.

    I hope that’s not Rampage under there. There is a lot of wishful thinking in that pic….

  • garth

    is it me or did they make rampage’s head about 30% too small?

    and there’s definitely some creepiness there.

  • Tommy

    Jake plays video games? News to me.

  • Reverend Clint

    Those graphics really aren’t that great. I think COD 4 has better.
