As Kotaku's weekend editor, my problem is the fact Friday is my hump day. Now, I know it's a lot of other folks' hump day too, but for different purposes. But when I talk about what I'll be playing this weekend, bear in mind this is like what you would be playing on your Thursday and Friday.
I mean this with all sincerity: When I finish a review, no matter how good the game is, I usually put it down for a week. I'm exhausted. Not the case with UFC Undisputed 3. I'll be revisiting the octagon this weekend. It's tough evaluating an open-ended game that appeals to many different tastes. Now that I know all it has to offer, I'm very much looking forward to starting over and making it cater to my preferences. If you didn't see my review (shameless plug), check it out. I do think UFC Undisputed has a solid enough fighting-game structure to make it appeal to gamers who aren't necessarily sports-inclined.
