Such smooth armpits! NBA Live 14 gameplay trailer

Oh my gosh. Looks at those players' armpits. It's like an uncanny armpit valley. They look like Stretch Armstrongs or those sex dolls people date and think are real. Yes, the NBA Live series lives. NBA Live 14 is coming to P...

Mmm, EA wants you to 'feel it': Next-gen Madden trailer

Whose screenshot is more next-gen, NBA 2k14 or NBA Live?

Today, NBA 2k14 released its first next-gen screenshot, featuring Lebron James. That is screenshot. Singular. I think NBA Live 14 is winning the next gen race, though, because it released its one screenshot almost a month ago. At least show some gamesmanship and one up them, 2K. Release two (k) screenshots.  Anyways, they are both attached. Which one looks more next gen?

This FIFA promo will make everyone everywhere facepalm

Well, here's a swing and a miss by EA's marketing department -- an overly Australian attempt at teaching us FIFA 14's celebrations "Oz Style". It's about as insufferably embarrassing as an advertisement can get. And that's b...

Review: Madden 25 photo
Review: Madden 25
by Steven Hansen

Take my review of last year's Madden 13. Give it a roster update. Associate any players I named who've been swapped around like pogs with whatever their new team is. Axe a missed dangling participle or two. Tighten up the mechanics of writing. Maybe there was a misused em dash. Replace it in a way that is (probably) grammatically correct. Add some flourishes here and there. Some new puns, maybe.

You now have my review of Madden 25.
