The Sanchize ruined my first game as the LA Rams

While Madden 16's E3 build doesn't offer final ratings -- there's still two months before the game comes out -- the Broncos' were previously announced to have an 89 overall rating. Maybe a bit low for a team coming off a Super Bowl win, bu...   read

Ah, here we are: today we have 1) the first screenshots of Madden 17, 2) the Madden 17 cover athlete reveal, and 3) the first Madden 17 trailer. My bet is that it is not unlike Madden 16, which I reviewed last year. EA has a blog post prai...   read

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 ...   read
