  • Basketball has made it to Rocket League

    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...

    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.

    An appeals ruling last September in the Ed O'Bannon vs NCAA class action lawsuit complicated the potential return of college sports video games. District judge Claudia Wilken had initially ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, finding that the NCAA violated antitrust laws and that college athletes should be able to receive up to $5,000 a year in deferred payments. The District Court ruling had made it possible for the likes of EA Sports to pay into a trust that would have been dispersed to pl...
