Just like Mario is in NBA Street, Little Mac will be in Fight Night. Just passing around the news for those still interested in supporting the EVIL EA.

EA must be stopped I tell you! They should of based Little Mac on the one on for the NES Version, Mike Tyson's Punch Out. EA Mac just looks creepy. I'd rather have the green see through skeleton Little Mac of the Arcades.

Will Mario referee?

Will we get to jog past the Statue of Liberty while the token black trainer keeps up on his bicycle?

Anyway, welcome back Little Mac. On second thought, go back to the Nintendo retirement home and free Kid Icarus.

The green wireframe would've been badass.

NES Little Mac is mad broken: he can dodge punches FROM any direction with a dodge IN any direction. It's like he can parry without having to have to guess high or low! (yeah yeah he gets to return punches faster if he picks the "right" direction)Damn! Too good!

No, Nintendo needs money and Nintendo has no pride. Nintendo has learned that when it comes to Nintendo fans, Nintendo fans only want Nintendo on their Nintendo. So Nintendo now has to put Nintendo in every Nintendo-related game.

Honestly, I never thought the fighter that was in Super Punch-Out for SNES (the character they inserted into Fight Night) was Little Mac. I was always under the assumption that it was a nameless fighter you controlled. I mean, Little Mac was half the height of everyone he fought.

Confused the crap out of me when I saw this, that's for sure.

It's not that they screwed up Little Mac, it's just that they're going for authenticity. After having the crap kicked out of him for years by foolish gamers that didn't know how to control him, Little Mac, like all boxers, eventually retired to a life of booze, hookers, cocaine, and hideously deformed facial features.

Seriously though, why is it so damned hard for EA's animators to make a cartoon character look like a cartoon character? First Princess Peach is hideously deformed in NBA Street, now Little Mac is hideously deformed. I'm not an artist, but I was under the impression that cartoon bodies and features were one of the quickest things that you learn while becoming an artist, simply because it's much easier than accurately simulating a human being.

The monster they placed in Fight Night Nintendo Nintendo Nintendo Edition is from SUPER Punch-Out.

I love how they went on and on and on about how Punch-Out was the foundation for all boxing games and we all grew up with it and blah blah blah and then they turn around and use the version of Little Mac that is the least familiar with and no one "grew up with." Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought everyone and their dog had played the OOOOLD 8-bit NES Punch-Out. Why not make it look like him? That aside, even if going with the SNES one was the better choice (a matter of opinion, of course), the model looks awful. It looks like they just took the create-a-boxer and bumped the values past the breaking point and just added that horrible hair and a custom texture. Bleh.

At least the Mario Bros. characters actually LOOK like their "real versions," except with some sort of body suit for Peach so she can do FANCY BASKETBALL STUFF between her legs.

Little Mac has been fighting for, what, twenty years? That can't be good for you.

That, or he's suffering from Proteus Syndrome.

Little Mac looks like he's on the Roids and possibly some other questionable substances (I though it was Flax seed oil!). I agree, it would have been better to have the NES Mac or the green wire frame one.

So... I wonder where we'll see the next Nintendo whore. Ahhh.. but I should be so judgemental. I'm sure Nintendo has to pay the bills like everyone else.

At least in the US, they never said his name, some of us called him Little Mac just to call him something. And it makes no sense for him to be Little Mac. The one from Mike Tyson's Punch Out became the Champion, the one from Super Punch Out started over with 0 wins. Ah well, lots of things in video games don't make sense I guess.
