NHL 15 predicts entire hockey season, probably gets it horribly wrong


L.A. Kings again?
Oct 01
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

Powerful impact BOOM!

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

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

FIFA 15, just released yesterday in North America and yet to be released in Europe and the UK, is already having some troubles. Maybe you're in luck if you buy it on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS or Vita (and b... read

There's a team called the 'Redskins' in this game, which is super racist!

OlliOlli grinds perfectly onto PS4 and PS3


Sick nasty!
Aug 27
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. The console version is every bit as gnarly as its portable predecessor. Plus, it features cross-buy and cross-save functionality, so experienced shredders needn't stall jumping back in. read

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer


Dueling celebs, Lady Gaga jokes, women in hot pants, hologram football players

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
