NHL 15

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

Madden 15 cover wants you to stop in your tracks, or something


Seriously, what's he doing?
Jun 20
Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman won the vote to be on the box art of Madden 15. What exactly he's doing on the cover, well, that's anybody's guess. Does he want a high-five? (If so, gotta go higher, Richard.)... 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

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

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


Tit for tat

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? read
