Playing UFC Undisputed w/ Houston Alexander

July 30, 2009

This is the result of my playthrough of UFC 2009 Undisputed with Houston Alexander, last week’s cover story in the Omaha City Weekly. Here’s a link to the review at OCW’s Web site. The previous post has a good image of the cover.

Despite being prominently featured in the game, Omaha’s own mixed martial arts fighter Houston Alexander hadn’t played “UFC 2009 Undisputed” until we invited him to the City Weekly offices to check it out a couple weekends ago.

“It freaked me out when I saw my brother playing it,” Alexander said. “Wouldn’t it freak you out if you saw yourself up there?”

It probably would. Hell, I was a little unnerved just watching digital Houston on his back taking blows to the face.

“They’ve got everything pretty accurate,” Alexander said. “This game is pretty damn accurate.”



Got the cover story last week!

So a couple weeks ago I got the chance to play UFC 2009 Undisputed with Houston Alexander in the Omaha City Weekly Office. Turned out to be a pretty cool story and the Cover Story last week. Here’s a link to the review.
