FIFA 15 puts priority on emotions and giant dogpiles

Last month, I did my best to tell you what EA Sports wanted to put emphasis on for its three big sports titles this year. Then, it went and undermined me by releasing videos that say exactly what I wrote. In the unfortunate ...

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

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.

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

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?

Be as arrogant as you want in NHL 15

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.

In time for calcio (football) madness, PES 2015 gets a trailer

Update: Welp, that video was pulled due to licensing issues. I'll take this moment to root very hard for Belgium to knock out the American team.  I'm a bit checked out after Italy's rare, unceremonious early exit, but we...

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

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.)...

Devolver Digital is planning on giving away 1,000 copies of Broforce, "If 'Merica wins the World Cup," which is to say that Devolver Digital has absolutely no plans on giving away 1,000 copies of Broforce.  Because America sucks.
