That Odell Beckham catch looks way less impressive in Madden 16


Another year another Madden
May 14
In case you were concerned, yes, there will be a Madden this year. Madden 16, so expect it to feature a lot of One Direction and complain about how it wanted the 7 series BMW, not that poverty-lined 4 series. It seems the on... read

EA's PGA Tour gameplay trailer is just as boring as watching real golf


Look at that grass, though!
Apr 24
Golfing is fantastic. Reckless cart driving, endless jokes about "ball washers," and your friend puking in the rough on the 14th hole because he's somehow on, like, his 14th beer. Swat a tiny sphere a few hundred feet every ... read

Rory McIlroy replaces Tiger Woods on EA's PGA Tour


Rory McIlroy PGA Tour
Mar 17
Tiger Woods' name has gone from being synonymous with golf to being a different kind of pop culture reference. I'm not even sure if he golfs anymore. I just know he shows up to places missing teeth. Of course, EA's PGA Tour ... read

Madden NFL 15 latest EA Vault addition


Boom!
Mar 04
EA Access continues to prove itself worthy as Madden NFL 2015 has just been added to the current lineup of available games in the The Vault. It's a shame Sony turned down this service. Despite their concerns, it appears to be providing plenty of value -- at least it would for me. read

It's now easier to unlock Bruce Lee in EA Sports UFC


Old-school cool via free download

Martial artist Bruce Lee is in EA Sports UFC, somehow. You can play as him after besting Career Mode on Pro difficulty or higher, or instantly if you pre-ordered the game. Because money. That's how it was, anyway. Electronic ... read

Damn. Started my last post about EA Access by admitting I keep forgetting the service exists, so it'd be poor form to do that again despite my continued forgetfulness. And now I've muddied this post by calling attention to th... read

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

We had entirely too much fun with the Madden GIFerator

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

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15


All thanks to the laws of physics
Jul 18
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. read

Who is yelling in this Madden trailer and why, why, why


Sorry! O V E R

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.

Be as arrogant as you want in NHL 15


But you have more respect for the game than that
Jul 09
Who doesn't want more control in their videogames? EA Sports explains that in NHL 15, players have been rebuilt from the ground up to give players unprecedented control. That includes the ability to choose your own goal celebrations. I'm sure everyone will respectfully skate back to the bench so as to not show up their opponent. read

Causing brain damage never looked so good
Usually when I'm watching two grown men beat each other up, their names are Ryu and Ken. I am a fan of a good fight in games, but aside from the occasional boxing match I have never been very interested in MMA. After watching trailers for EA Sports UFC, I figured now might be the time to start to learn the sport through the game. read feature
