EA Sports used NHL 15 to simulate and predict the upcoming NHL season which begins next week. The results are most likely terribly wrong because nowhere does it anticipate that the Colorado Avalanche will be crowned Sta... read
Turn-around jumpers, one-handed dunks, pull up treys -- this new NBA 2K15 trailer has it all for anyone that cares about defense as much as James Harden does. All that silky smooth rock-handling is even easier to digest... read

A new NBA 2K15 trailer is out in the wild, and it deals with the new mentor system. Last year the developer facilitated a mentorship mechanic with Lebron James, but now the idea has expanded to every NBA team, so whethe... read
On-ice first star, off-ice distraction With regard to sports games, the most important facet of any given title should always be the actual playing of the sport. That's how NHL 15 is. It mostly shines when you're on-ice, leading the charge through the neutral... read feature

This is why I love football, hate anime, and why both are the same Late Saturday night and Sunday morning, I did a 101-block long, 7-8 mile walk horizontally through San Francisco, like a scalping of the city's northern districts. It started downtown on the bay at AT&T Park, where the Gi... read feature
There's a team called the 'Redskins' in this game, which is super racist! Madden 15 on PS3 and 360 is bad garbage that EA shouldn't get away with releasing.
Alright then, onto current-gen. read feature
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... read
After taking several years to reboot NBA Live and still stumbling out of the gate with a crummy NBA Live 14 last year, EA isn't winning anyone over with a Visuals video or a face scanning video or a cover star announcem... read
Minimalist skateboarding game OlliOlli first kickflipped its way into our hearts this January when it landed on PlayStation Vita, and now it's rolled onto PS3 and PS4.

I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net.... read
I'll be honest, I haven't played a Pro Evolution Soccer game since the PlayStation 2 days but after the series lagged behind EA's FIFA juggernaut for the last few years, I'm keen to try the series again on a current-gen platf... read

File this one under "news I never thought I'd hear." The last Happy Meal rotation saw a group of toys that you all probably thought I'd never shut up about, but the next set is even stranger. Yowling children zipping aro... read
Madden 15 is getting a special Xbox One bundle for its August 26 release. Like any offensive lineman worth his salt, it's larger than average. However, unlike any all-star caliber player, it sort of comes at a discount.
Rust creator Facepunch Studios said it had multiple game prototypes in the works and here's another one: Deuce, an arcade-style tennis game. Or, Street Fighter x tennis.
There's some early footage and artwork to give you a gl... read

Lionel Messi will grace the cover of FIFA for the third year straight year, but FIFA 15's North American release will see team USA's Clint Dempsey creeping behind Messi, wondering why his lighting is so different.
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 ... read
