    Though it may not qualify as a pure sports game Super Stickman Golf and its sequel have been recognized for being among the most fun games for mobile devices. The developers of SSG, Noodlecake Studios, recently released a spin-off called that goes by two different names: Flappy Golf for iOS and Golfy Bird for Android. As the names would suggest it takes elements from the insanely popular (at least for a few weeks before the creator pulled it from the store) Flappy Bird and combines it wit...

  • Smart Design Decisions Overshadowed by Reliability Concerns in Early MLB 14: The Show Online Franchise Mode Testing

    While SCEA revealed some of the framework to Online Franchise for MLB 14: The Show the company never explained the actual logistics of the mode. Baseball inherently presents challenges like the length of the season and time requirement to play games which necessitates chunks of them being open on the schedule for example - but then how are rotations, injuries, and fatigue handled when not playing games in any specific order? Server issues, the need to actually play some of the games to de...

    The demo for 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil released yesterday on the Xbox 360 and PS3 and the response to it seems largely positive. That's great for those who have been anticipating the game but feels especially unfortunate for the others who would have jumped at the opportunity to buy it on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 if presented the opportunity. The 2010 World Cup game was one of the best sports titles of the entire 360/PS3 generation. 2014 looks to capitalize on that history with cons...

    In the final clip from the most recent Press Row Hangout the panel discusses the news from EA Sports that the upcoming UFC game won't have a "Fighter Share" feature. Past titles from the company including EA MMA and Fight Night have included the ability to create fighters and then share them online for others to download but potential litigation is now scaring companies away from support for that type of freedom.

    SCEA made two time-saving features the most marketed additions for MLB 14: The Show. There is no doubt that the length of time it takes to play games has limited baseball's potential video game consumer base and even hampered the ability for the most dedicated fans to play to the extent they would like. Of the two options developed for MLB 14 at least one is proving to be a worthwhile option to consider.  (more…)...
