    Though it has failed to gain traction with consumers in North America - due to a combination of the entrenched nature of the FIFA series and absence of some licenses - Pro Evolution Soccer has become recognized as the better of the two franchises by reviewers and many fans.

    I recently appeared on The 4 Verts Podcast for an interview to discuss the journey of Pastapadre.com, creation of Hit The Pass, and writing for Sporting News. The conversation then turns to Madden and the differences between the development team now and in the past, the impact of Ultimate Team, areas in which the series has struggled the most, and what needs to be done for it to join the elite class of sports games in a shrinking marketplace....

    One of the more unique video game spins being put on a sport this year is with Dangerous Golf, which has drawn obvious comparisons to the Crash Mode from the Burnout series.

    Rocket League began as a very successful combination of racing and soccer. Late last year though developer Psyonix added in a hockey mode which proved to be very well received. It was more than just changing the ball to the puck, but the different physics meant the game had to be approached in a completely different manner. The air-game was de-emphasized in favor of playing the boards to a greater degree. In a free update that went out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC today basketball has now jo...

    Earlier this month Psyonix announced a basketball mode was in the works for Rocket League but didn't offer any clarification for when it would release outside of "later this year." Now the developer has revealed that the new mode called Dunk House will be free and available to all with the game on PS4/XB1/PC in April. Based on their past announcement-to-delivery time frames it could be just a week or two away now. Rocket League was built off soccer fundamentals with cars taking the pl...

    After four releases over a 12 year span with EA Sports, the latest UEFA Euro game comes courtesy of Konami who announced the acquisition of the license last year. Rather than a standalone game, or even paid downloadable content, UEFA Euro 2016 content has been added to Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 as a free update. Unfortunately only 15 of the nations involved in the tournament are officially licensed for the add-on. They are Albania, Croatia, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Icelan...
