See Samit without glasses on Spike's EA Sports Season Kickoff


8:30 PM on 04.23.2010



This post might seem a tad conceited, but I don't think it can be helped.

Last night, I made my TV debut during a special EA Sports-centric show presented by GameTrailers TV, the "EA Sports Season Kickoff." It focused on the sports gaming giant's storied past, and provided information on many of this year's upcoming EA Sports games, including Madden NFL 11, NCAA Football 11, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 (with PlayStation Move support!) and EA Sports MMA. Spike asked me to come on and talk about EA Sports games, so I did! Thinking of the Podtoid listeners, I did my best to avoid saying "um" and "uh."

If you know me, you're aware that I wear glasses because, well, I can't see more than a few inches in front of my face without them. I don't have contacts, so I pretty much never take off my glasses. Unfortunately, they were messing with Spike's green screen, so I had to go without them. Don't I look weird without glasses? (Wait ... don't answer that.)

Now that I've popped my TV cherry, I just hope that my performance didn't scare away any potential future small-screen opportunities. I'd like to thank the folks at Spike for dealing with a first-timer so delicately (and for spelling "cachet" correctly -- props, you guys!). Enjoy the show, Dtoiders!

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 ...more

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.more

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?more
