The app is $5 and this year the new features include updated rosters, a redesigned interface, a player editor, and retina support. For the first time an Android version is in the works and that is expected to release this summer.  (more…)...
  • Bruce Lee Could Provide Boost to EA Sports UFC Sales Despite Mixed Reaction

    Earlier this month Bruce Lee was announced as an addition to the roster of EA Sports UFC. He'll be available to fight with in four different weight classes and can be obtained as a pre-order bonus or by "completing" Career mode. The announcement was polarizing and the poll posted recently collected over 3600 votes on the subject. The results confirm what was initially suspected - the decision to add Lee to the game will prove a net win for EA even though the news wasn't universally loved...

    2014 FIFA World Cup is out today and it would have been a much bigger event had the game released on Xbox One and PS4. Alas EA Sports chose not to do so, which means I'm heading back to the Xbox 360 to evaluate it. Check out a live stream below (which will be archived after to watch) of the game which will include playing a variety of modes. (Update) The stream archives are now embedded below. Will have basic impressions of the game posted later this week! Watch live video from Pastapadr...
  • Your Thoughts On What Has Been Shown of MLB 14: The Show on PS4

    SCEA has long made it known that the PlayStation 4 version of MLB 14: The Show would be essentially the same feature wise as the PS3. Instead of changing around a formula that has largely worked for several years they'd primarily focus instead on enhancing the visuals. There is a good deal of excitement around the title with fans having planned in advance by purchasing the PS4 knowing it was the only place baseball would be present. The exceptional visuals have been evident from the gamep...
  • MLB 14: The Show PlayStation 4 Live Streamed Games

    Earlier today IGN hosted a live stream of MLB 14: The Show on PS4 between with a game between Yasiel Puig and Hunter Pence, some Home Run Derby, and Road to the Show. It's far from the best way to represent the game - graphically it'll look better than the video quality allows for, some questionable skills and knowledge are on display, and Quick Counts are utilized - but it's an opportunity at least to see the game in action. To watch you'll have to put up with the host and an all around...

    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?
    by
    Posted April 12th, 2014 at 1:30 pm 4 Comments »
    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

    Posted April 11th, 2014 at 6:45 pm 6 Comments »
    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.
