Will Cliff Lee and the Rangers capture their first World Series? Or will Tim Lincecum and crew bring the San Francisco Giants their first championship since Willie Mays' amazing catch against the Cleveland Indians in 1954, when the team was still in New York? For fans of the other 28 MLB teams, it's "wait until next year."

Of course, instead of waiting, you could be building your own baseball dynasty with OOTP 11. And from today through the end of next Wednesday (November 3rd), you can buy OOTP 11 at HALF off the regular price, or just $19.99!

Save $20 and get it here.

This week the FIGHT NIGHT CHAMPION development team will be hosting a community feedback session bringing in seven hardcore gamers to get their hands-on an early version of the game. With the game slated for release in 2011, the team is hard at work implementing new features and this session will allow them to get some first hand feedback from guys representing a range of boxing gamers in the community.

As with previous feedback sessions, there will be information embargoes on main features in the game however the invites will get a chance to see the entire game and, in time, will be able to provide their own game and feature impressions. Following the session, however, they will be given the opportunity to share info on their visit along with their overall impressions of the game along with a couple new screenshots to share. Look for those next week.

Representing the EA SPORTS FIGHT NIGHT Forums, a majority of our moderating staff will be on hand with Quenton “xxreignmakaaxx” O’Neal, Anthony, “Indigo72” Lynn, Nick “c45h” Rask, and Rob “wepeeler” Smith making the trip to Vancouver. Ant also runs http://UntilTheNextRound.com a website devoted to amateur boxing and you can find Rob’s awesome videos on his YouTube page at http://wepeeler.tv.

Along with Rob, another returnee from FIGHT NIGHT ROUND 4’s Community Event is Tyrone “Darxide” Kirk representing Max Boxing and is an admin on their forums. From Operation Sports, we’ll also have long-time forum member Derek “Phobia” Hernandez present to represent the rabid fans from the hardcore sports video game site.

Finally, we put out a call on our forums for community members to let us know why they should receive an invitation to the event and after receiving quite a number of detailed responses, we selected Justin “TERMINALD” Allen as the community representative. TERM is one of the top ranked players in the game and his skills will most definitely be put to use testing out gameplay aspects and we’ll be looking to see if we can get his thumbs up going forward.

Stay tuned for my recap of the event and let us know in the comments below what you hope to see in FIGHT NIGHT CHAMPION!

If you have any questions for Phobia, post them right here.

According to CVG, EA Sports MMA hasn't sold many copies and with THQ and Zuffa, LLC extending their exclusive UFC videogame license through 2018, it might be one and done, for EA Sports MMA.

Quote:
"EA is likely to back out of the mixed martial arts genre after its debut offering, EA Sports MMA, made a poor start at retail.

That's according to Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz, who thinks UFC Undisputed maker THQ may have scored a knockout blow in the MMA battle between the publishers.

"EA's recently released 'MMA' appears to be more or less DOA at retail, while UFC recently announced an extension of its license with THQ, likely putting an end to EA's efforts to expand into the mixed martial arts genre," the analyst said in a research note this morning."

Calling pro wrestling "fake" is neither accurate nor informed. The term is "kayfabe."

Check out Kotaku's Owen Good and WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011's Producer, Marcus Stephenson talk about the game, which releases on Tuesday, the 26th.

Quote:
"A typical wrestling match in lasts seven minutes, and we as WWE fans know there'll be a period where the face puts on the offense while the heel takes the beatdown. Then we know that the heel will reverse the match flow. And at the end, the face will turn it on, pull off his signature move, then his finishing move, and win," Stephenson said. "We can't really do that."
