I'm playing through injury (dislocated thumb, doubtful) to bring you some straight, uncut Madden 17 gameplay out of E3, wherein I help the Carolina Panthers get revenge on the newly-Mark-Sanchez-led Denver Broncos. Madden thinks that's a d...   read

Ubisoft's Steep is scratching my SSX itch

That came out of nowhere! Ubisoft just announced Steep, a new open-world snowboarding/skiing/paragliding/base jumping/skydiving that's giving me serious SSX reboot vibes. Sure, that game lost some of the charm of the older games, ...   read

NHL 17's making big strides toward being a complete hockey game

Two years ago, EA Sports shipped NHL 15 -- the first "next-gen" installment in the perennially fantastic NHL franchise -- in bare bones condition. It was a glaring misstep, and the developer has spent years trying to right the ship. NHL 16...   read

FIFA 17 will have a story-like 'Journey' mode with a fixed protagonist

[Update: EA announced "The Journey" with a really hokey live actor playing Alex Hunter. Haha, E3 has begun!] Much like the NBA 2K "MyCareer" mode, EA is adding in a similar "Journey" gametype to FIFA 17. Based on this new trailer we have an...   read

FIFA 17 runs on the Battlefield engine, releases this September

Like Rory McIlroy PGA Tour before it, this year's FIFA will use the Frostbite engine. Well, on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, that is -- the last-gen PS3 and Xbox 360 versions aren't going to, which presumably means they'll be sticking...   read

Gran Turismo Sport will lack dynamic weather or time cycles to preserve frame rate

Gran Turismo is a series that aims for the stars, but it looks like Sony is being a bit more realistic this time. Speaking to GT Planet, producer Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed that conditions for the upcoming Sport would be sol...   read

I should give SSX another shot now that it's playable on Xbox One

SSX (2012) is one I've been meaning to go back to. I liked it well enough at launch, and it was nice to see EA acknowledge the series again, but for whatever reason it just didn't grab me quite like the others. It didn't have that exact rig...   read

Sentient protein shake Rob Gronkowski doesn't believe in the Madden Curse

Even though he's on the cover of this year's Madden game, New England Patriots touchdown machine -- and the human embodiment of Edward Forty Hands -- Rob Gronkowski isn't concerned that he'll fall on hard times as a result. He's not wo...   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

Man, Dangerous Golf looks really really great

The sportsman in me wants to love golf, but the lover-of-exciting-things in me just can't be bothered. As a youth, the best part about hitting the links was wandering into the rough to try to recover balls that other golfers gave up on. Sl...   read
