EA is shutting down online for these sports games soon photo



There can be a sense of urgency to buying games, knowing that if you wait too long, some of the functionality may no longer exist. Whether it's the servers getting physically shut down or simply a dwindling community of online players, sometimes, waiting for that great price drop might not be the right move after all. Electronic Arts is retiring a number of titles this month, starting with this selection on January 11, 2013:

  • FIFA Soccer 11 for PC, PS3, Wii & Xbox 360
  • FIFA Soccer 11 Ultimate Team for PS3 & Xbox 360
  • Madden NFL 11 for PS3, Wii & Xbox 360
  • Madden NFL 11 Ultimate Team for PS3 & Xbox 360
  • NBA JAM for PS3 & Xbox 360
  • NBA LIVE 10 for PS3 & Xbox 360
  • NCAA Football 11 for PS3 & Xbox 360
  • NHL 11 for PS3 & Xbox 360
  • NHL 11 Ultimate Team for PS3 & Xbox 360

This is followed by The Sims 2 (PC/Mac, and TheSims2.com) on January 14, in addition to Trenches II (iOS) on January 19. While I personally have never dabbled in online play for any of these games, I feel your pain if you have. Think of the lost Achievements and Trophies!

MLB 15 The Show is all about realism

If you've been on the fence about MLB 15 The Show and whether or not it truly represents the splendor and majesty of America's game, then let this video be the deciding factor in your curiosity. Just as in real life, ball boys can be tricky little bastards. If you don't keep your eye on them, then this type of shit happens.more

Now batting, Herb Guy

I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pit...more

Minnesota Timberwolves go old school with Rubio Kart 64

Since Nintendo loves content creators so much, let's keep this Mario Kart 64-inspired video by the Minnesota Timberwolves on the down low. Ricky Rubio must love it, though, because it's going to be the only chance he has to actually win something meaningful. [Via Facebook]more
