Impressions: Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason

It's a crying shame to see Rare reduced to producing Kinect games. With so much talent and so many IPs ripe for the taking, Microsoft has reduced one of the best retro studios of all time to a motion control factory. But ever...

Review: Powerstar Golf photo
Review: Powerstar Golf
by Chris Carter

As a young gamer, often times my first foray into the wide world of sports was through videogames. Before I knew how to run a slant route in a real-life game of football, I knew how to run something in Tecmo Bowl and Madden.

The same could be said for the greenest of all sports, which was first introduced to me by way of Nintendo's Golf for the NES. Even though I had no idea what "par" was or the difference between a driver and a wedge, there was something tranquil about hitting a tiny ball down a giant digital course.

Powerstar Golf for the Xbox One captures that feeling as well, even if it has a few other issues in tow.

Nice moves: NBA Live 14 next-gen demo drops tomorrow

Feeling a bit hesitant about lacing up your high-top Nikes and returning to the virtual hardwood? It's tough to blame you; a lot can go wrong when you step on that virtual court. You might pull a virtual Kevin Ware and shatte...

C'mon and SLAM! There's an NBA2k13 Space Jam mod

I'm not sure how this eluded me for three months, but I am here to make amends. Why there's no Quad City DJs pumped over the boring in-game audio I don't know, but this is a thing of beauty all the same. Game jams are such a huge thing these days -- let's see a Space Jam game jam, please.

So you like beer pong. And as chance would have it, there just so happens to be a new beer pong game on PlayStation Network. The only problem is it's dreadful, just dreadful.

Run now. Run while you still can.

Review: Football Manager 2014 photo
Review: Football Manager 2014
by Alasdair Duncan

As I finish this review, English Premier Division side Tottenham Hostspur, managed by Andre Villa Boas, sit fourth in the league, despite some inconsistent performances. In Football Manager 2014, Tottenham Hotspur, managed by myself, are just inside the top half of the table and are lucky to still be involved in the Europa Cup.

Videogames often criticized for being power fantasies, letting players live out unlikely dreams of being heroes and warriors. Football Manager doesn't do that; it overwhelms you with information and makes you eat all drunken armchair punditry you've spewed whilst watching your favorite team. No, you couldn't do a better job and Football Manager 2014 is going to prove it.

Review: Mario & Sonic at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games
by Kyle MacGregor

The prospect of Mario and Sonic appearing side by side in the same videogame was once a near-unthinkable fantasy. But it happened. Thanks to the demise of Sega's console business, the bitter rivals eventually put aside their differences and joined forces to create a novel assemblage of Olympic sports minigames for the Nintendo Wii.

That was six years ago. In the interim the unlikely pairing has since spawned a biannual franchise with three entries across as many systems. And like clockwork, just in time for February's international competition, the iconic mascots have reared their heads for fourth.

Powerstar Golf: full of RPG-like systems, cloud features photo
Powerstar Golf: full of RPG-like systems, cloud features
by Dale North

Xbox One golf launch title Powerstar Golf didn't gel with me the first time I played it, but after seeing the depth of some of its systems last week I feel better about it.

Its RPG-ish leveling system and cloud-based competitive features sound like something I could really get into.

NBA Live 14 fighting for relevancy photo
NBA Live 14 fighting for relevancy
by Steven Hansen

Sports, television, videogames. NBA Live 14 is the Xbox One trifecta. The NBA Live series has long been dormant, finally reviving itself on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this month. 

The key word I kept hearing was "relevancy," which is appropriate. It's something the series needs to regain. EA's ambitions, however, are not to just make a basketball that can compete with 2K at a fundamental level.

Leveraging a partnership with Synergy Sports, NBA Live boasts a constantly evolving game that will reflect the real life NBA season with hours of actual games being played. Really living up to the Live name, I guess.

Oh, and there's a TV show.
