    From the end of August, to the end of September, there are nine sports-related games releasing. Five of them are major league licensed titles. How is it that all these games will release at practically the same time, when there's only a handful of them distributed over the other 11 months out of the year? This situation has become of major concern to sports gaming fans, particularly as the genre has contracted so significantly over the past decade. There's only so much money to go around,...

    EA Sports today released a new trailer that focuses on the improvements to gameplay for FIFA 16 - whether it be on defense, in the midfield, or on the attack. The specific work that was done for this year was laid out back at E3 and the new video recaps those features and even makes mention of goalkeeping improvements which wasn't touched on before.  (more…)...

    EA Sports today released two new videos for NHL 16 intended to show off gameplay improvements. The first is a trailer that goes over "balanced gameplay" featuring Precision Skating and Seamless Puck Pickups. Then there is a brief look at pure gameplay footage, the first real opportunity to see the game in action, and the company has provided some notes on specific subtle improvements particularly on defense to look for within the video.  (more…)...

    The inevitability of having to move on from Tiger Woods after such a long relationship put EA Sports in a position where they felt it necessary to take the rebooted PGA Tour series in a totally different direction. Rory McIlroy PGA Tour has aimed at appealing to a more "casual" consumer. Gone are healthy lineups of licensed courses and golfers, and nods to history of the sport. In their place are arcade-elements like fantasy courses and over-the-top mini-games. Over two years have passe...

    Rory McIlroy PGA Tour went out through EA Access on Xbox One Wednesday providing the first and only opportunity for many to try the game out, or at least watch videos and live streams from those who can. Promotion of the game has been somewhat subdued, maybe in part due to the lack of content in at launch - but that wouldn't explain so little in the way of gameplay footage or detailed profiling on the features/modes that make up the product.  (more…)...
