    When it initially launched I called NBA Live Mobile the best thing NBA Live since 2009 and gave it a positive review on Sporting News. Many agreed considering the game had fantastic user-scores. It was averaging well over 4 stars on iOS and sat at an impressive 4.6 on Android. That's all changed with a recent update that was made to the game that has resulted in a wave of 1 star reviews rolling in instead. The current updated version has a horrendous average rating of 2 stars on iTunes....

    The latest roster update for MLB The Show 16 looks to be a course correction for a number of players who have disappointed this season or are far exceeding expectations. There are also some new cards for Diamond Dynasty that will be among the most desired in the mode. Giancarlo Stanton has plummeted going down 6 points to 87 Overall. What had been an excessively overdue need for a change to his ratings, which hadn't been touched at all this season, was pointed out last week. It's a crushi...

    This evening Vladimir Tarasenko was announced as the cover athlete for NHL 17 during the NHL Awards broadcast. The St. Louis Blues forward won the cover competition by beating out Joe Pavelski in the finals of the eight man fan-voted tournament. While the full list of features was revealed earlier this month, NHL 17 has been somewhat out of the public eye as of late given that it didn't appear during EA's E3 press briefing. The trailer for the game was instead held back until now to co...

    Early this morning Amazon added a retail page for a PC version of Madden NFL 17 that would activate through Origin and was open and accepting pre-orders. Unfortunately EA has confirmed to me and other outlets that there will be no PC version this year and the listing will be removed as it was an error on Amazon's part. Currently the page still exists but pre-orders can't be made. Even just the brief possibility that there might be a PC version created a fairly decent amount of genuine...

    Please enable Javascript to watch this video EA Sports has made a big deal out of FIFA 17 moving to the Frostbite engine, with supposed benefits to gameplay and the ability to create things like the new story mode. However, despite being playable at EA Play last week, gameplay footage has been difficult to find as any recording was apparently restricted at the event. One off-screen video however made it out before being pulled and shows some of the new elements implemented this year....
