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

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

Rocket League is getting Cross-Play for Xbox One and PC today

I have been off the Rocket League train for a long while, but I'm glad to see it succeed like this. A few developers that I've spoken to recently have noted its success as an inspiration, and even have in-house tournaments for it. Now,...   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

Popped-collar-come-to-life Gronkowski is the Madden 17 cover star

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

EA sure botched that NHL prediction

The Washington Capitals just flamed out of the NHL playoffs in the second round, and with the loss goes EA Sports' prediction that they'd win the Stanley Cup this year. Pittsburgh centerman Nick Bonino dashed that forecast with a game six o...   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

Review: MLB The Show 16
