    The Pastapadre Sports Game of the Year in 2013 was MLB 13: The Show and for the follow-up SCEA focused on areas of strength while also attempting to address the issue of length of games. Unfortunately the Achilles' heel of the series has reappeared harming the product arguably even more than in the past. The PS4 version, which is now just three weeks away, will be essentially the same exact game with the exception of advanced visuals and some other technical improvements so as a whole imp...

  • How Much Does The Bruce Lee Addition Matter to EA Sports UFC?

    The announcement of Bruce Lee being available as a playable fighter in EA Sports UFC prompted two distinct responses. Some felt it was a huge deal and could sway them to buy the product, while others thought it was silly that someone with no association to the UFC and who didn't really take part in competitive fighting would be included and heavily promoted for the game. The latter group would be unlikely pass on buying due to the news - the only way it would be harmful is if he was selectab...
  • Major Issues Being Reported With iOS Version of RBI Baseball 14

    Though RBI Baseball was designed as a mobile game first the iOS version appears to be severely troubled. That's not good news for a game that is already perceived to be overpriced at $5. Poor reviews have poured in and a large number of complaints are being seen on social media. Many users are reporting crashing of the game - and though it seems to be at a higher rate with iPads it's also affecting those with iPod touch and iPhones. Some people have not even been able to load into a game ...

    EA Sports has released a new video promoting the release of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil on Tuesday. A recent one took a look at the modes in the game and now attention turns to the presentation.

  • MLB 14: The Show Video Compares The Visuals on PlayStation 3 vs PlayStation 4
    by
    Posted April 10th, 2014 at 10:15 am 16 Comments »
    A new video comparing MLB 14: The Show gameplay footage has released courtesy of Gamespot and it directly matches up the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game to show the visual enhancements that come with the new system. It's somewhat surprising that media directly comparing the two versions of the game has already been offered up. There's a delicate balance SCEA has to consider in selling the PS4 version and its improvements without making the PS3 look so inferior that those still consid...
  • Demo Confirmed for EA Sports UFC

    Posted April 9th, 2014 at 3:15 pm 1 Comment »
    EA Sports has now confirmed that there will be a pre-release demo for the upcoming UFC title. No date has been announced but inĀ the past the company has released demos for NCAA Football around the same time period. In regards to UFC a potential conflict exists in that E3 takes place the week prior to the game's release. In recent years a demo has gone out for NCAA a week before or after E3 (which begins this year June 10th) but in the case of NCAA 13 it actually coincided with the first ...
  • RBI Baseball 14 Now Available on Last-Gen Consoles and iOS

    Posted April 9th, 2014 at 11:00 am 5 Comments »
    RBI Baseball 14, the resurrection of the 1986-1995 series coming from MLB Advanced Media, has arrived for iOS devices and as a digital download on Xbox 360 and PS3. Though outrageously priced at $20 for consoles and $5 on mobile, considering how thin the game is on content, it hopes to tap into nostalgia and deliver some fun factor as an arcade entry into a market that has become largely devoid of them. RBI Baseball 14 will also be out for Xbox One, PS4, and Android in May or June. Comple...
