Madden review photo
There's a team called the 'Redskins' in this game, which is super racist!
Madden 15 on PS3 and 360 is bad garbage that EA shouldn't get away with releasing. Alright then, onto current-gen. read feature

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer


Dueling celebs, Lady Gaga jokes, women in hot pants, hologram football players
Aug 15
I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net.... read

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15


All thanks to the laws of physics
Jul 18
About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass. read

Who is yelling in this Madden trailer and why, why, why


Sorry! O V E R

I wanted to fit a "Red Warrior is about to die" joke in this trailer for Madden's new Gauntlet mode. I got as far as "Redskins is about to die" before I started watching this video and was greeted with an over eager, discordant voice over. Bosssssss levelsssssssssssss. Who thought this was a good idea? read

Be as arrogant as you want in NHL 15


But you have more respect for the game than that
Jul 09
Who doesn't want more control in their videogames? EA Sports explains that in NHL 15, players have been rebuilt from the ground up to give players unprecedented control. That includes the ability to choose your own goal celebrations. I'm sure everyone will respectfully skate back to the bench so as to not show up their opponent. read

Causing brain damage never looked so good
Usually when I'm watching two grown men beat each other up, their names are Ryu and Ken. I am a fan of a good fight in games, but aside from the occasional boxing match I have never been very interested in MMA. After watching trailers for EA Sports UFC, I figured now might be the time to start to learn the sport through the game. read feature

During the presentation, EA boasted that it would calculate "physics for all twelve players and the puck."

EA Sports UFC shows off its fighting women


Still crazy realistic
May 27
The game does look pretty impressive, but is it just me or does the whole thing sort of lack grace? The fighters seem a little more awkward and stilted than I would like. Of course, just because there isn't lifelike fidelity doesn't mean it doesn't play well (Dale was impressed with it). Just the sequence around 40 seconds looks a bit goofy. read
