TapouT crew added to UFC Undisputed video game roster

New and exciting details have been revealed regarding the upcoming UFC 2009: Undisputed video game with a scheduled release date of May 19. The game will now be featuring all three of the well known MMA apparel icons of the TapouT crew.

THQ recently confirmed the addition of the TapouT members in a report to MMAjunkie.com.

The game will will now be featuring the late Charles “Mask” Lewis Jr., “Skyscrape”, and “Punkass”, also well known for their well received mixed martial arts television show that went by the same name as the company and is featured on the Versus Network.

The decision was made by THQ after the fatal car accident that resulted in the death of “Mask”. It was mutually agreed between THQ and the remaining members of the TapouT crew, “Skyscrape” and “Punkass”, to include the trio in the final release of the title.

    I played the demo on Xbox Live.
    Chuck vs Shogun

    Its fun but could be considered a button masher game.

  • webeougher says:

    Turn the difficulty up to either Expert or Veteran (I believe those are the two highest settings) – the only thing button mashing will get you is either choked/tapped out (if you play as Chuck) or knocked out (if you play as Shogun). I was tearing the computer up on easy so I bumped it up to the next-to-highest difficulty and got my @$$ handed to me. Badly. Repeatedly. It’s actually a surprisingly deep demo once you turn the difficulty up, and you have to find a balance of varied strikes, blocking, and your ground game (unless you’re Chuck – then it’s pretty much keeping the fight standing).

    As pertains to this post though – as much as I appreciate what TapouT have meant to the UFC/MMA in general, those three make the game and Randy Couture doesn’t? Shane Carwin doesn’t? Mask died well after Randy came back to the UFC, so if they can add him into the game, what prevented them from adding Randy, at the very least? Also, Cain Velasquez is in the game, so how did they decide not to include Carwin, who had at least been on a PPV card (even if two fights were prelims), something Velasquez won’t manage until later this month?

    If you think its a button smasher then you will get owned by the ppl that arent mashing them , it actually takes some skill.

    Why is Juanito in it?

  • Cathedron says:

    Web: Randy refuses to license his likeness for some reason and he’s got enough clout that the UFC can’t force him (unlike everyone else). He wasn’t in the other UFC games either. But I don’t know why Carwin isn’t there. He could be downloaded later possibly. I’m betting they’ll be adding fighters for several months that way, but it will probly cost us.
