Geoff Harrower forced to pull game-breaking tuner set from EA UFC 3

EA UFC 3 features tuner sets enabling developers to “hotfix” the game with updates that are smaller than patches. Unfortunately these tuner sets turned out to be defective and were found to crash the game.  It is not known why EA failed to detect these crashes and flaws in testing, which Microsoft and Sony require prior to patch releases. Some are speculating that EA implemented “tuner sets” to bypass platform requirements. Many users have reported that EA UFC 3 is plagued with game-breaking bugs and glitches.

EA developer admits UFC 2 was released full of major flaws

EA UFC 3 developer Geoff Harrower has admitted that EA knowingly released UFC 2 full of major flaws. The post came about after a user posted a negative review of newly-released EA UFC 3. Geoff was shocked by the negative review, expecting a much better reception than during the release of the previous game in the series, EA UFC 2. He also promised not to read any replies to his admission.

Geoff Harrower specifically admitted that “UFC 2 had stun lock parries on every strike, strikes that did almost no damage with no vulnerability system, and random health events.”

Geoff Harrower is best known for being a developer on NBA Elite 11, a game that EA was forced to cancel 8 days before release.

The startling revelation was brought to light after admitting that he could not enjoy the new local multiplayer modes of EA UFC 3, which he refers to as “couch modes.” He criticized the developers, stating “Now it’s pretty much 2018 and EA thinks we can summon a group of friends to our couch…”

The philosopher Aristotle said, “In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. They keep the young out of mischief; they comfort and aid the old in their weakness, and they incite those in the prime of life to noble deeds.”
