Uggggh... a new Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympics is coming to the Wii U. Why am I not surprised?

The game will take place in Sochi, Russia, the site of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, and will use a combination of Wii Remote Plus and GamePad play for events. There's also a curling event that requires you to scribble on the GamePad screen. Yahoo.

Some of the events are more "game-y" than the typical Olympic ones. Some, such as snowboarding and the luge, will have larger, more dynamic levels that are closer to levels found in Mario Kart or Sonic Adventure. So that'll be fun.

Review: Madden 15

Madden 15 on PS3 and 360 is bad garbage that EA shouldn't get away with releasing. Alright then, onto current-gen.more

Ah, so that's where those silly Madden GIFs are coming from

I don't care at all about Madden, but GIFs? Damn you, Electronic Arts. You've won. The company has created a GIF maker for Madden NFL 15, "designed to help fans celebrate their favorite team's biggest plays and challenge thei...more

Madden 15 glitches: 1 foot tall players, rocketing linemen, & more

Madden 15 is out. I will write more on the game this week (preview: the PS3 and 360 versions are a shady cash grab and missing new features).  Until then, let's have some fun. more
