EA Sports made a big deal out of Colin Kaepernick getting his tattoos in Madden NFL 15 but he was the only player in the game with them. The publisher no longer includes potentially copyright infringing art without those who own the rights having signed off on them. There are now a few more players including cover athlete Odell Beckham Jr. with them in Madden NFL 16. Even...

    Posted January 28th, 2016 at 10:15 am 1 Comment »
    There are a couple very interesting developments out of today's roster update for NBA 2K16. The top rated player in the game has opened up a bigger lead over the next highest individual, while a player in the spotlight for the wrong reasons has been hit with some punitive action. LeBron James had held the throne as the highest rated player in the NBA 2K series since 2010. Earlier this season Stephen Curry tied him and then surpassed him. With the latest roster update Curry has taken a two...
