Electronic Arts could soon be offering their games directly to Comcast subscribers, according to a report from Reuters. The two companies have been in talks, and after two years of testing it seems the deal is close to an agr...

Madden 15's overly serious teaser to remind you it's coming

So, last year was Madden NFL 25, and this year is Madden NFL 15? I can't wait for Madden NFL -5. Integers are fun, kids. Anyway, here's a self-important trailer. Reminder: this is a game. It's a game of a game. Madden 15 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and 360 on August 26 in North America, August 29 in Europe. Voting for the next cover player begins May 8.

Breaking Madden's Super Bowl is better than this Sunday's

We approach another manicured, partially tax-exempt-NFL, $9B/year industry football game this Super Bowl Sunday. We'll be lucky to get a sign of life like Richard Sherman's postgame interview two weeks ago. No, it will be a ...

Madden 25 predicts a Broncos Super Bowl win

The Super Bowl is this weekend, fittingly attended by teams from both states wherein pot is legal, though housed in New Jersey, where, at the moment, snow does not seem imminent despite recent cold. As Madden 25 tells it, th...

Applicant for college coaching job cites Madden skills

As the resident Destructoid staff North Dakotan, I feel oddly obligated to report whenever there's videogame news that can be tenuously tied to my home state. As such, the University of North Dakota had a recent applicant for...

Impressions: Madden NFL 25 (Xbox One and PS4)

It's tough to feel the need to upgrade to a "next-gen" version of a game when so many of them are practically identical to the product you already bought. Though some PS4 and Xbox One titles have drastic differences like a va...

Madden 25 CoachGlass may be the best way to call defense photo
Madden 25 CoachGlass may be the best way to call defense
by Steven Hansen

Stats run sports. Yes, we have heartwarming stories of moxie and upsets and unexpected onside kicks right after the Super Bowl halftime show and they make for great narratives, but numbers are invaluable at easily quantifying what used to take a wicked good eye and more memory than is worth expending.

Anecdotes say Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is a choke artist who can't finish games. Numbers show that from 2008 to 2012, the number of game winning drives or fourth quarter comebacks he orchestrated increased each year, including five of the Cowboys' eight wins in 2012.

One the failings of Madden has been an inability to convey information and to teach football. Madden 25 took some steps to address this with the Skills Trainer, while CoachGlass goes a step further, actually working in-game to allow you to make informed decisions with an intuitive interface.

Mmm, EA wants you to 'feel it': Next-gen Madden trailer

Skip to about 1:40 for a nasty hit. Now that we're in the year 2025, it's time for a next gen Madden game. Madden 25 released a couple months ago, but on smelly and dumb old news hardware. Next month, it's coming to fresh an...

New releases: Killers everywhere photo
New releases: Killers everywhere
by Fraser Brown

I'll be spending this week playing catch up, but there's no dearth of new releases. Killer is Dead is tempting me, because bloody hell it looks flashy, but I'll probably leave until I'm not drowning in games. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is notable too, if only because it was originally a shockingly poor MMO and had to be entirely rebuilt. I've not been impressed with the results, and found myself sick of it after a weekend. Others seem to be getting more out of it, however.

Also on the docket this week, we've got Lost Planet 3, which is nice if you're sick of the summer heat; Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons comes to the PC, which pleases me greatly; and some burly American fellows kick a ball around in Madden NFL 25. There's more too, but you'll have to scroll down for that.

Anything floating your boat this week?

Review: Madden 25 photo
Review: Madden 25
by Steven Hansen

Take my review of last year's Madden 13. Give it a roster update. Associate any players I named who've been swapped around like pogs with whatever their new team is. Axe a missed dangling participle or two. Tighten up the mechanics of writing. Maybe there was a misused em dash. Replace it in a way that is (probably) grammatically correct. Add some flourishes here and there. Some new puns, maybe.

You now have my review of Madden 25.

GameStop wants to help you trade up from 360 to Xbox One

I bet GameStop is a little happier selling Xbox Ones now that the used game market is back. To show this support, the company is running a somewhat neat promotion. If you are a PowerUp Rewards member and buy select games for ...

Madden 25 going crazy with one-handed catches photo
Madden 25 going crazy with one-handed catches
by Steven Hansen



Madden 13
was really the shot in the arm the franchise needed after several years of feeling remarkably stale. The implementation of a physics system in retrospect seems paramount for something striving to be simulation football and last year finally brought it, resulting in the most different feeling title the franchise has seen probably since the generation began.

The anniversary-named Madden 25, celebrating 25 years of the franchise, goes back to familiar ground a bit. It's once again a game of refinement, tweaking, and iteration, featuring an evolved version of last year's physics engine, which cleans up some of the rough edges from the prior game.
