We're not exactly sure why anyone would want to punch EA Sports' charismatic figurehead, Peter Moore -- especially in his cherubesque face. Still, we guess it's nice to have that opportunity available, should you someday develop a strong Moore aversion. However, traveling to Pete's home and merciles...

During their E3 press conference, EA released assets for a bunch of upcoming games. We showed the new SimAnimals earlier today -- these are the assets from the games we already knew about. More Sim stuff of a sort (SimCity Creator), more animal-related stuff (the utterly terrifying Littlest Pet Sho...

When EA changed the title of the Wii's FaceBreaker to FaceBreaker K.O. Party, we couldn't help but moan, groan, grumble, and sneer. Not every Wii game needs to have the word "party" in it, and we do enjoy things that aren't party games from time to time (shock, gasp!). While the video above...

Cunning old EA. The company's decision to create a rubbery-faced boxing game in the style of Midway's Ready 2 Rumble titles has proved surprisingly effective at turning the heads of Dreamcast obsessives such as ourselves. Come September 5th, we'll be able to see if EA pulled it off, when Facebreake...

EA Sports announced yesterday that its latest franchise FaceBreaker will release on September 5 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. While sim-boxing fans look forward to EA's Fight Night series, FaceBreaker is reminiscent of classic arcade boxers pulling nostalgic cues from Nintendo's Punch-Out! and Midway's...

Whether you're in it for the pugilistic spectacle or gratuitous undead hostility, we think there are a few good reasons to catch this Friday's episode of GameTrailers TV on Spike. Not only will we see the character creation mode in EA's cartoonish boxing game, Facebreaker, we'll actually get to see...

There's a new FaceBreaker video making the internet rounds today introducing a new female character to the boxing mix. Meet Kiriko, a 22 year old dancer who weighs "just a hair under a hundred" and whose voice is as annoying as a school bus full of screaming ten year olds hopped up on Pixy St...

We've been keeping our eyes on Facebreaker, EA's charmingly silly boxing title. The latest slew of videos feature some "getting to know you" segments with two characters in the game, who are, in a word, strange. It's these quirky characters that make Facebreaker stand out from some of the ot...

Although the Facebreaker character trailers aren't half as amusing as the Team Fortress 2 portraits, we do have hope for the game itself. It would be nice if there was a now-gen "casual" boxing game that rekindled that fun we had while playing Punch-Out back in the '80s.The latest Facebraker...
