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

Devolver-published #SelfieTennis looks, uh, weird

We've all known for a while that for virtual reality to take off, it needs to facilitate playing with oneself. Developer VR Unicorns perhaps took that advice too literally and built a game about playing tennis, except you continuously telep...   read

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer darkslides a powerline

Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as if skaters can ...   read
