When I heard 1902's boxing game my heart leap, taught I'd be getting a cross between fight club and peaky blinders ( if you haven't watched peaky blinders your missing out great performance by cillian murthy and the rest of the cast or excellently betrayed) how disapounted I was to see this. Not saying it will be crap I just got excited with my imagination..

Peaky Blinders fan huh....+1

Not too sure about this game too. Maybe seeing it in motion may help its appeal.

You have good taste in TV sir. Peaky Blinders is top notch viewing.

Imagine a fighting game in different Speakeasy's with illegal broken bottles of rum and bare knuckles. Kind of a DefJam 1920's

I had a picture of a gritty bare-knuckle fighting game in sepia tones with an audience of flat-cap wearing onlookers.

I think a historical boxing game would be great. It could chronicle the development of the sport from the early days to the modern rules. Origially two opponents would stand still almost toe to toe and take it in turns to punch each other in the face until one was knocked out.

At that time you didn't block or dodge, just stood there absorbing punches and fights could last for hours if nobody was rendered unconscious.

Oh shit I thought it was an actual ps4 theme...go so excited, is it bad that I got more excited for a speakeasy theme than a game?

If you ask for it, I'm sure the published will do their best to make it happen. t
