    EA Sports today released a second set of screenshots from Madden NFL 16. These images follow several that were released along with the teaser trailer and the initial feature reveal. The new screens keep with the theme of receiver-defender interactions which appears to be the primary gameplay-related focus this year. Check them all out in the FB album for Madden 16. No improvements related to the graphics have been cited except how "improved time of day and lighting helps highlight Mad...
  • More Questions About NHL 16 Answered, Yet Topic of Player Editing Being Avoided

    To go along with the early release of feature information for NHL 16, EA Sports has been answering some questions related to the game through the "Ask NHL" page on the official website. Some responded to include the addition of every team's mascot, hats being thrown on the ice when a player records a Hat Trick, and there being no Online Shootouts mode. Of course they're cherry-picking those they want to answer and avoiding ones they'd rather not. In that latter category is whether or not ...

    The NHL season has only just reached the Conference Finals but EA Sports has provided an early glimpse ahead to fall's NHL 16. There's far more substance here, providing a full features list, than would be typical four months out from release and with E3 just under four weeks away. The experience of last year, when the company lost much of their consumer base by releasing a half-finished game and attempting to hide that fact until the very last minute, has necessitated this strategy of b...

    It may not be a new feature or mode for Madden NFL 16 that lifts potential enjoyment of the game the most but rather the effect of rules change. Today at the NFL owner's meeting a new rule was passed related to the most boring play in football - that being the point after touchdown.

    Last year was rough for the NHL series as EA Sports not only lost significant sales due to an abnormally thin feature set (despite extra development time) but they severely damaged trust with the community by handling things deceptively. It was a given that most of the features that went missing in NHL 15 would return for NHL 16...with the exception of GM Connected. The question was how much would they be able to do above that to make the upcoming game enticing to those now skeptical of a...
  • Your Thoughts on the First Madden NFL 16 Feature News
    Posted May 18th, 2015 at 5:15 pm 19 Comments ╗
    Last week EA Sports rolled out the first information related to Madden NFL 16. For the most part it was underwhelming and nondescript. The exception related to receiver-defender interactions including new controls for each side and more situations that will draw penalties. That will be the focus of the two polls today.
