New golf MMO from Bandai Namco
Bandai Namco had us drive all the way out to San Francisco's Presidio for its latest game announcement this week. That's the National Park at San Francisco's northern tip overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, which is red, actu...
What a fun idea
An email showed up in my inbox with the words "100ft Robot Golf," and I couldn't click it soon enough. That's the title of the next game from Roundabout studio No Goblin. It looks great.
This isn't merely standard golf with g...
That's a lot of steam
High in the sky, above the clouds, there is a mini-golf course. That's what Vertiginous Golf would like you to think, anyway. And, up there, rounds are free forever if you click a few buttons right now.
Making me LMFAO TBH
Even with its new Battlefield infusion and nighttime mini-games, golf is mostly a low-key and quiet affair. Everyone stays really quiet and still; when something good happens, we'll all golf clap -- a really quiet and s...
Well, that was unexpected
Golf has a reputation for being a stuffy game played by uptight, proper folks. After spending some time with Rory McIlroy's PGA Tour, we can safely say that the majority of it lives up to those expectations. However, there's ...
'Golf,' and other four-letter words
Golf has a centuries-old reputation as being a maddening game. It's simple in premise, but that simplicity is always lost in transition from theory to execution. "Put tiny white ball in tiny cup" sounds easy enough, but after...
Look at that grass, though!
Golfing is fantastic. Reckless cart driving, endless jokes about "ball washers," and your friend puking in the rough on the 14th hole because he's somehow on, like, his 14th beer. Swat a tiny sphere a few hundred feet every ...
Brass clubs and copper pins
What happens when you get the developers of those old Nabisco mini-golf Flash games and have them make a new type of mini-golf title? Well evidently, you get something completely off-the-wall and bizarre, which feels more lik...
Rory McIlroy PGA Tour
Tiger Woods' name has gone from being synonymous with golf to being a different kind of pop culture reference. I'm not even sure if he golfs anymore. I just know he shows up to places missing teeth.
Of course, EA's PGA Tour ...
The name that keeps on giving
After a few months on Steam Early Access, HB Studios' The Golf Club is nearly ready for its final release on PC and consoles. The golf simulation title's launch on Steam and Xbox One is set for August 19, with a PlayStation 4...
Powered by Frostbite 3
Tiger Woods is out after damaging his brand. Flaming golf balls shot over battleships in the Pacific are in. Take that, Woods.
EA Sports PGA Tour (Spring 2015) is going to use the Frostbite 3 engine, which will give its full...
Something else to try on Xbox One
Microsoft Studios and developer Zoë Mode have altered the pricing of Powerstar Golf such that there's now a free demo-like base version of the game and content has been relegated to DLC packs. Your progress made here wil...
Mario Golf: World Tour has taken Nintendo into a completely new realm of DLC -- Season Passes. Although they have dabbled in the practice for some time now starting with Fire Emblem: Awakening or New Super Mario Bro...
Kirby or Mario Golf or both?
It's a terrific weekend for 3DS owners between Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Mario Golf: World Tour both fighting for our time. Nintendo has a pair of trailers out for the latter game -- one for the launch, another for those DLC ...
The online golf we've been wanting
It's been about 10 years since we've seen the Mushroom Kingdom gang out on the green, so it was high time for a new Mario Golf title. Camelot Software steps to the tee again, this time on the 3DS, bringing dual screens and and a new spin to their much-loved links with Mario Golf: World Tour.
But the biggest addition this time around is online play. Were they able to drive this one home?
But here's a crazy video and demo to hold you over
[Update: It looks like the servers are up now! I'm playing now -- review coming this afternoon.]
Sorry, but we're going to be a little late on our Mario Golf: World Tour review. As of 9 a.m. this morning we're allowed to run...
DLC schedule revealed
Mario Golf: World Tour, coming May 2, comes with 10 courses and 126 holes, multiplayer modes, tournaments and more. It's a full game. But so much more is scheduled to come as downloadable content, says Nintendo. We know that ...
Collaboration with Callaway Golf
As someone that spends his life bragging about his superior ability in videogame golf, I'm excited that Mario Golf: World Tour will feature both regional and worldwide tournaments. Nintendo says it's easy to get into: get onl...
Everyone plays simultaneously in multiplayer
Mario Golf: World Tour features four player multiplayer via online, or local play with just a single cartridge. As it should, but you know the best part of all this? Everyone is playing simultaneously. You don't have to wait...
Driver? I hardly even know her!
It feels like it's been forescore since I've played Mario Golf. Maybe the 3DS' upcoming World Tour is a good place to rectify that. Or maybe I'll finally take a swing at Hot Shots. Then again, The Golf Club has the best name...
You can use your Miis, too
Today's Nintendo Direct let us know that 3DS title Mario Golf World Tour is launching on May 2nd. As a crazed videogame golf fan, I can't wait.
Today, Iwata showed off a new mode that lets you use your Mii characters t...
The Golf Club. THE GOLF CLUB.
The Golf Club. I cannot contain myself. I'm having a ball with this one. The realistic-looking golf game, just announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, is meant to butt up against EA's no-longer-Tiger-Woods-branded PGA Tour, whi...
Nintendo has released the Golf mode for Wii Sports Club to the Nintendo eShop, letting players hit the motion-controlled links. As with prior Wii Sports Club games, you can purchase Golf outright for $9.99 or purchase a day ...
Only slightly over par
As a young gamer, often times my first foray into the wide world of sports was through videogames. Before I knew how to run a slant route in a real-life game of football, I knew how to run something in Tecmo Bowl and Madden.
And it's only $20!
Xbox One golf launch title Powerstar Golf didn't gel with me the first time I played it, but after seeing the depth of some of its systems last week I feel better about it.
Its RPG-ish leveling system and cloud-based competitive features sound like something I could really get into.
Same name, different game
After Electronic Arts broke off a 15-year relationship with Tiger Woods, the golfer is doing what many in his situation would -- he's trying to rebound. The most recognizable name in professional golf is courting videogame pu...
...and so is the title of the game
After years of Tiger Woods PGA Tour videogames, EA Sports and Tiger Woods are parting ways.
"EA Sports and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger's named PGA Tour golf game,...
Headed for the bunker?
Powerstar Golf is a launch title for Xbox One. It's an arcade golf title, but it's no Hot Shots Golf. On the surface it seems like it's par for the arcade-y golf course, but a few issues have it stuck in the sand traps.
Community features added
I'm probably too excited about Mario Golf: World Tour for the 3DS, coming this summer. I'm even more excited after this morning's Nintendo Direct broadcast, which gave us the first details on the game's multiplayer.
We're giving away prizes
Pangya, the greatest MMO golf game in the universe, is turning 4 this week. SG Interactive has all kinds of fun things lined up for Pangya Challenges to celebrate this anniversary, including giveaways and online events.  ...
