    EA Sports today released a breakdown of the specific improvements to gameplay that will appeal more to the hardcore crowd in Madden NFL 15. A lot of this was discussed in the recent live stream but it's nice to have it laid out in this manner as well. At the very least the company is demonstrating that they understand balance, realism, and options matter even if casuals have no idea they are there or ever take advantage of them. How effective it all is remains in question but that's a g...

    EA Sports will be stringing out Madden NFL 15 player ratings over the next two weeks. The company has now revealed the top rated quarterbacks and running backs which follow the highest rated rookies with 13 of them 78 or higher. Unfortunately "top" only means five best at each position so it wouldn't seem like there would be a great deal to analyze or argue about...though I'm sure plenty of that will still happen. Quarterback Peyton Manning (98), Aaron Rodgers (98), Drew Brees (96), Ru...

    The player rating reveals for Madden NFL 15 begin today with EA Sports releasing the top rated rookies. All those who are 78 overall and higher are noted which amounts to 13 of them. To no surprise Jadeveon Clowney tops the list but only at an 83 overall. Greg Robinson, drafted right behind him, also gets an 83. Lineman in particular are often given an edge as rookies as the transition is considered to be somewhat easier than those in skill positions. Quarterbacks even when selected high gen...

It turned out to be a fairly valuable watch with a lot of information relating to the new features, issues the development team attempted to address, and the thinking behind it all. There's a difference between reading about all the various gameplay-related features and actually having them shown and discussed in a manner that gets across...

    2K Sports today released the official cover for NBA 2K15 featuring Kevin Durant. Check out the full cover here. While some fans are expressing frustration with the lack of info or even screenshots for 2K15 - the cover and a soundtrack-related announcement won't help in that regard - the game is basically right on schedule considering the typical way 2K Sports markets the series. For the third straight year a prominent name will be selecting the soundtrack. Pharrell (please don't put 'Happ...

    The latest Press Row Hangout broadcast live on Friday night and tackled early impressions of Madden NFL 15, FIFA 15, and NHL 15 coming out of an event held by EA Sports and all the videos and information that have released to this point.

    Posted July 10th, 2014 at 2:45 pm 26 Comments »
    EA Sports today released a quick video offering glimpses at "The Gauntlet" - a new feature made up of various extreme arcade-style mini-games that end in "boss battles". One example seen out of a clip from E3 (later pulled down by EA) included kicking a 110 yard FG in hurricane force winds. The video is complete with an annoying voiceover that you'd expect out of an arcade game although the footage makes it look more like a typical tutorial-type skill building mode.
