I finally managed a sub on expert last night. Shogun wins by armbar late in the third. Of course, I had to beat him down well past the point of an easy KO and attempt sub after sub. I hope it is just the matchup on the demo that makes it so hard.

Aesir, you must have tremendous gaming skills! I really hate to admit it, but I must have already put in 15+ hours on this demo. I can win consistently on all levels other than expert, but on expert it is about 3 to 1, Chuck keeps landing one punch KO's out of the blue.

Now that I got that sub, I can take some time off of the game and get some work done(I really need to work ahead to prepare for the 19th).




Ha I wish lol I just seem to pick this game up pretty easily. I still need to get a rnc and a triangle. I also can't decide whether to order the game on xbox or ps3...decisions decisions.

I also have noticed that whilst I have only had 2 bjj classes since playing the game I think it has helped my skills somewhat in that I can more easily conceptualise in my head what I have to do than I could before. Still got submitted by a blue belt about 3 times last night though..

That was what I was alluding to- the whole thing is like taking control of those step by step instructionals that your instructor goes through to demonstrate a technique.

and yet you can KO Rua. This is why video games will always be better than real life

Sounds like a cool tourney when down on gamespot - I haven't watched it yet but want to see it to check out the different fighters that aren't in the demo...it's a welter tourney and they include BJ as a 170-er...

I finally tried the demo last night. I'm very impressed with the depth of the control scheme, though it will take some getting used to.

I can't wait to build my character, and see him knock the snot out of Chris Leben.

Oh damn! I hadnt even considered all the wish fullfillment possibilities - Leben and Tito are getting systematic beatings from 'Cord', in much the same way as i found nothing more relaxing on Def Jam:Fight for NY, than throwing Sean Paul under a train, again, and again, and again......

Picked my up at noon today. Sure wish it came out on Friday of last week so I could have played it on the weekend as it was a long weekend; Victoria Day. Will try to get on tonight to rock this thing out.

Cord, when you get yours let me know who is on your cover. For us in Canada it is GSP. In the US it is Forest Griffin. Heard it might be Bisping for the UK.
