    After more than 20 years a spiritual successor to the cult classic Mutant League Football has finally reached the red zone. Mutant Football League will release later this year on PC and early 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is described as an “NFL Blitz arcade-style football game, with nasty mutants, ferocious monsters, deadly chainsaws, and lots of gory player deaths, along with some edgy, satirical humor that parodies America’s favorite sport.” The creator and lead de...

    The sixth post-release patch for Madden NFL 17 went out today and it's a substantial one. Not only is it somewhat unusual to get a patch after a NFL season has ended, it's especially so considering gameplay is the focus of the update. Some of the biggest changes include addressing RAC catches, a fix for CPU defenders being offsides in no-huddle situations, improvements to zone coverage in handling C routes, and an increase to the chance of fumbles when diving over the top of players, a fi...

    Rather than being about the series of entertaining Madden NFL 17 games in an eSports setting where viewership numbers are slowly on the rise, the big story coming out of the Madden Bowl late last week related to the conduct of the winner on social media. The situation has been problematic for EA Sports which is still trying to find its way in the competitive scene and has now faced a number of growing pains along the way. The circumstances necessitated a response from the company which wa...

    It took only three days for the Mutant Football League Kickstarter campaign to reach the goal of raising $60,000 to be put towards completion of online multiplayer. The spiritual successor to the 1993 game Mutant League Football is being developed by the same creator and lead designer and has gone through some substantial changes since an original run at raising funds in 2013 came up short. This time the project was ready to be scrutinized and tap into a neglected segment of sports gaming...
