MLB 14 attempts to fix what bugs you in Road to the Show

Attempt. It probably won't. But good on them for trying when it's the only baseball game worth buying anyway and they don't have to do much to maintain its goodness. And I'm sure plenty time is being spent on the PS4 version...

It's been too long since I've played Mario Golf, it's underwater now

It feels like it's been forescore since I've played Mario Golf. Maybe the 3DS' upcoming World Tour is a good place to rectify that. Or maybe I'll finally take a swing at Hot Shots. Then again, The Golf Club has the best name...

Dumb Idiot Ideas: Shaq Fu? How about a Love Actually fighting game
by Max Scoville

Man, you guys hear about Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn? That's a pretty great idea, but here are some even better ones, like a game where James Van Der Beek's head is a Hydro Thunder boat, or where the cast of Love Actually beats each other to death.

Review: Inazuma Eleven photo
Review: Inazuma Eleven
by Wesley Ruscher

When I was a young kid, I loved nothing more than playing classic sport video games like Bases Loaded, Blades of Steel, Double Dribble, Tecmo Bowl, and Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!. While I enjoyed the likes of Super Mario Bros. and Zelda, hitting a game winning homerun was inherently more rewarding than sticking a silver arrow in Gannon's forehead ever was.

As I pushed through my junior high school years though, my tastes in games began to change. It was in these years that I was introduced to my deepest of video game loves: the Japanese RPG. Chrono Trigger and Lunar: The Silver Star opened my eyes to a much deeper world; a world where story was just as important as gameplay, and more importantly, could actually have meaning.

Nowadays, I find myself satisfied having quick flings with any action game that I can finish in a weekend. I still love RPGs and sports games, but the commitment to fully enjoy them is more than I can usually spare. If only there was a way I could enjoy both genres simultaneously; a way to go back to the days where time was in abundance.  

Inazuma Eleven is the time machine I’ve been looking for.

MLB 14 The Show gets a big visual boost from PS4 power
by Dale North

We had a chance to take a peek at the PS4 version of MLB 14 The Show this past week at a preview event, and it was clear from the get go that the game benefits greatly from the power that the PS4 provides. Now, it's not like the PS3 version isn't a great looking game, but a quick side-by-side comparison showed that the PS4 version will be the one to get for MLB fans.

If you can wait about a month, that is. The PS3 and Vita versions step to the mound in April, and the PS4 will follow in May.

Breaking Madden's Super Bowl is better than this Sunday's

We approach another manicured, partially tax-exempt-NFL, $9B/year industry football game this Super Bowl Sunday. We'll be lucky to get a sign of life like Richard Sherman's postgame interview two weeks ago. No, it will be a ...
