Game Freak's Pocket Card Jockey is arriving next week

We already knew that Pocket Card Jockey was coming west. It even got an eShop demo recently, signifying its impending release. But thanks to a trailer from Nintendo, we now know that it's actually coming to the 3DS eShop next week on M...

See what all the Rocket League fuss is about for free this weekend

If you've spent any amount of time around these parts within the past year, you know that Rocket League is enormously successful. We love it; the general public loves it; everybody seems to love it. Still, there may be some curmud...

The delightfully disturbing Push Me Pull You hits PS4 on May 3

Push Me Pull You is "a nice/horrible local multiplayer game where you and a friend share control of a big, wriggly body, and then play sports together." Clearly, the developers have had some time to nail down and refine their one-sentence...

MLB The Show 16 review

FIFA 16 is now part of the EA Access program

Okay, this fan-made Mario Football mock-up is great

I used to be fairly into sports video games back when they tended to be more straightforward, arcade-style experiences -- stuff the whole family could easily learn to play and love. Heck, to this day, I still regularly revisit titles from t...

Horrible, no good, very bad basketball player to grace NBA 2K17 Legend Edition

EA backpedals on pre-season NHL predictions, probably still won't be right

Before the beginning of the 2015-16 NHL season, EA Sports predicted that the Anaheim Ducks would be the eventual Stanley Cup champions. After a shaky start, Anaheim eventually got its act together to win the Pacific Division. EA rewards tha...

I would definitely play a Mario Kart themed Rocket League

It might not be real, but The Pixel Kingdom has shared their vision of what Rocket League would be like if it took place in the Mushroom Kingdom. And you know what? I can dig it. Lightning power-ups, items that morph the size of the ba...

These guys turned a PS3 into a skateboard

Modders turn basketball stars into sexfully-horrifying cheerleaders

Even you non-sports-liking heathens have to admit that sports yields some of the best gifs. I mean, there's an entire industry and 24-hour network based around the "highlight," a primordial gif. Plus remember when the Toronto Raptors masco...

Devolver-published #SelfieTennis looks, uh, weird

We've all known for a while that for virtual reality to take off, it needs to facilitate playing with oneself. Developer VR Unicorns perhaps took that advice too literally and built a game about playing tennis, except you continuously telep...

Hoopin' is on the horizon for Rocket League

Rocket League did for soccer what few anticipated: it made controlling an individual player exciting. This past winter, it took the formula on ice with the hockey-themed Snow Day, and now it's going further in the genre of sports in which t...

Mexican soccer pays weird tribute to 20 years of Pokemon

EA's making half of its digital sales on sports microtransactions

Playing sports video games increases the risk of playing real sports

Most gamers scoff at the suggestion that video games can influence real life behavior. "I've been playing violent video games my whole life and I turned out all right!" we say, citing anecdotal evidence as fact. Well, sorry to say, a new st...
