EA backpedals on pre-season NHL predictions, probably still won't be right

Before the beginning of the 2015-16 NHL season, EA Sports predicted that the Anaheim Ducks would be the eventual Stanley Cup champions. After a shaky start, Anaheim eventually got its act together to win the Pacific Division. EA rewards tha...

Don't forget your Stretch Armstrong UFC 2 cheat codes

Do kids still have Stretch Armstrongs or is it all iPhones, sex boxes, and designer drugs for today's tots? Well I'm sure they can play UFC 2 on their Nintendos or whatever.

UFC 2 is so much better with Conan O'Brien

In this Clueless Gamer segment, Conan O'Brien challenges UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor to a match of EA Sports UFC 2, and oh my god, his character's face. His hair. His everything. I'd say "poor Conan," but it looks like he enj...

Poor EA! UFC 2 is now covered by losers

When EA decided to split cover star billing on UFC 2 it made so much sense. Throw the most popular, then-undefeated women's MMA fighter next to the most popular men's MMA fighter. That's some chip shot marketing. A gimme. Then Ronda Rousey ...

EA's making half of its digital sales on sports microtransactions

EA has made no bones about the fact that the extra content market plays a large role in its earnings. A year and a half ago, the publisher said it aimed for $1 billion in revenue annually from selling add-ons. Since then, it has exceeded th...

Madden backed the Panthers to buck the Broncos (and was wrong)

[Update: Well, Madden was wrong. Contrary to EA's simulation, the Denver Broncos prevailed in Super Bowl 50, winning over the Carolina Panthers by a score of 24 to 10. Also, it seems EA has removed the video. Maybe the folks over there are ...

Mike Tyson probably needs money so he's in the new UFC game

It's well-known that Mike Tyson, once a highly paid athlete, has squandered almost all of the money he earned during his career. He's a monetary shell of what he once was. Iron Mike has taken to the likes of exhibition matches, movie roles,...

EA got NCAA Football fans' hopes up just to dash them

Haha, holy shit, no one bought EA's basketball game

NHL 16 pegs Anaheim Ducks as Stanley Cup champs

Review: Madden 16

Madden 16 screenshots lie about Marshawn Lynch dick-grabbing mechanic

Madden 16 used the above photo for Marshawn Lynch in its running backs player rating reveal. He is, naturally, number one at 96 overall. He cannot, however, grab his dick in defiance, as he is wont to do in real life. Seriously, watch this.
