Games N Moorer's Joseph Moorer loves a good fighting title. He gets into it in a way that few people do, as evidenced by the "tsss, tsss" sounds he makes while throwing in-game punches. So it's a ton of fun to watch Joseph take on the role of Rocky Balboa in Survios Games' new boxing title Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions.
If the idea of Survios doing a Creed title sounds familiar, that's because the company is also responsible for 2018's Creed: Rise to Glory (otherwise known as "one of the best VR games ever made"). But Big Rumble Boxing is no simple adaptation of an existing first-person VR game. The boxing has been entirely reimagined for the third-person arenas, while retaining all of the awesome licensed characters from the Creed and Rocky franchises.
Joseph went fairly deep on the fighting ("No, Michael B. Jordan! No! No!"), playing a ton of matches against various Creeds, Dragos, Mr. T, and a few nameless chumps. Joseph seemed to really enjoy the game, praising the boxing mechanics and the excitement created by the matches. However, he did feel that a patch for online play might be needed to justify the game's current price. But despite that critique, he still managed to have a ton of fun with Big Rumble Boxing. Check out a replay of his session here:

Howdy. My name is Eric Hauter, and I am a dad with a ton of kids. During my non-existent spare time, I like to play a wide variety of games, including JRPGs, strategy and action games (with the occasional trip into the black hole of MMOs). I am intrigued by the prospect of cloud gaming, and am often found poking around the cloud various platforms looking for fun and interesting stories. I was an early adopter of PSVR (I had one delivered on release day), and I’ve enjoyed trying out the variety of games that have released since day one. I've since added an Oculus Quest 2 to my headset collection. I’m intrigued by the possibilities presented by VR multi-player, and I try almost every multi-player game that gets released.
My first system was a Commodore 64, and I’ve owned countless systems since then. I was a manager at a toy store for the release of PS1, PS2, N64 and Dreamcast, so my nostalgia that era of gaming runs pretty deep. Currently, I play on Stadia, PS5, PS4, PSVR, Quest 2, Switch, Luna, GeForce Now, and a janky PC. While I lean towards Sony products, I don’t have any brand loyalty, and am perfectly willing to play game on other systems.
When I’m not playing games or wrangling my gaggle of children, I enjoy watching horror movies and doing all the other geeky activities one might expect.View Profile
