    Posted November 19th, 2013 at 5:15 pm 22 Comments
    While more detailed write-ups will be done in the near future here are brief initial assessments of the three launch day sports games on the PS4 that will also be out for Xbox One this week. Rare is the occasion where several sports games are released on the same day so time with them has been split evenly thus far. It'll take longer to craft a more complete review for each which they deserve to have. (more…)...

    The demo for NBA Live 14 is now available to download on the PlayStation 4. The first sim basketball title in four years from EA Sports is officially out in stores today - even though some retailers began selling copies late last week - but the demo provides an opportunity to try the game out before deciding whether it's done enough to earn a purchase.

    Posted November 18th, 2013 at 7:45 am 91 Comments
    NBA 2K14 is arguably the most impressive next-gen game out at launch - and I would wholeheartedly recommend it based on time spent with it so far - but server related issues have made playing the game a difficult task for a significant number of consumers.  (more…)...

    Posted November 15th, 2013 at 6:00 am 83 Comments
    While EA Sports has attempted to keep consumers from seeing NBA Live 14 in action a few copies have leaked their way out early and users have begun to stream it through the PlayStation 4's built-in capability. Needless to say the gameplay looks rough and the visuals are disappointing but the presentation outside of the commentary looks to be very promising. Continue on to check out the two streams that have been archived so far and leave any observations in the comments!  (more…)...
  • How Madden NFL 25 and NBA 2K14 Are Using The PS4 Controller Touchpad
    Posted November 13th, 2013 at 5:15 pm 18 Comments
    While multi-platform sports games will likely be fairly comparable across the board between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this upcoming generation, there are a few ways in which the two systems differentiate from one another that developers will look to take advantage of. One example of those for the PS4 is the Dualshock 4 controller that provides for the use of a unique central touchpad. A new video that came out today includes discussion with developers on how they are utilizing the to...
  • NBA Live 14 Heads Towards Release That Could Sink the Future of the Series
    Posted November 12th, 2013 at 1:45 pm 102 Comments
    At a time when competition in sports gaming has nearly evaporated the return of the NBA Live series offers some hope that multiple games can exist for a single sport. NBA Live 14, debuting next week after a three year absence due to two late-cancelled titles, needed more than anything to reestablish some credibility in order to build towards future battles in the marketplace. In the lead-up to release EA Sports has demonstrated a distinct lack of confidence in the product and made decisio...

    Posted November 11th, 2013 at 11:45 am 37 Comments
    Despite the end of the week bringing the launch of the PlayStation 4 the sports games have still shown very little in the way of raw gameplay footage. While Madden NFL 25 and NBA Live 14 are being almost completely hidden, off-screen videos from conventions for FIFA 14 and a short clip for NBA 2K14 were all that was available to see of those two in action until now. Thanks to demo units being up in retail stores more off-screen videos have materialized for both while FIFA also has some direc...

    Earlier today an NBA 2K14 gameplay video recorded off-screen showed for the first time the presence of on-court interviews at halftime and post-game. Now 2K Sports has released an official trailer showing off the new addition for the Xbox One and PS4 version of the game and most impressively they utilize the real audio from actual interviews that have taken place with players and coaches.  (more…)...
  • Next-Gen NBA 2K14 Bringing Back Online Leagues; MyGM Mode is Single Player Offline
    Posted November 8th, 2013 at 12:45 pm 11 Comments
    NBA 2K14 on the PS4 and Xbox One introduces MyGM mode - which appears to adopt many of the same ideas featured in Madden's Connected Franchise - replacing Association which had gone without much of anything in the way of improvements in recent years. 2K Sports today confirmed that there is no online component to MyGM while PS4 trophies reveal that Online Leagues are back.  (more…)...
