  • 9th Circuit ruling on O’Bannon complicates potential return of college games
    Posted September 30th, 2015 at 4:00 pm 12 Comments »
    When Judge Claudia Wilken ruled in favor of the plaintiffs in the Ed O'Bannon vs NCAA class-action lawsuit, there was reason for optimism that college sports video games would be able to return in a few years. That was pending appeals however, and the 9th Circuit today turned in its response, reaffirming that the NCAA violated antitrust laws, but striking down the part where a trust would be set up for players to be paid for the use of their likenesses.  (more…)...
  • PES 2016 tops Madden NFL 16 to become highest rated sports game since 2013
    Posted September 22nd, 2015 at 11:45 am 21 Comments »
    Earlier this month Madden NFL 16 was able to stake a claim to being the highest rated traditional licensed sports game on Metacritic since 2013. The 84 on Metacritic rose above all others that followed FIFA 14 which had a score of 87/88. Now Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 has taken the title away as the game currently stands at 87 on Metacritic. Many will point to competition as being a factor here, with the FIFA series having been dominant for nearly a decade. Konami has been forced to to of...

  • Review of FIFA 16
    Posted September 21st, 2015 at 9:30 am 26 Comments »
    The latest edition of the biggest selling video game franchise in the world releases this week. FIFA 16 is facing a strong challenge from Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, making it the only sport that features true competition in the genre. FIFA has been on top for nearly a decade but EA Sports is starting to struggle in holding onto that position. This is the least I've enjoyed a FIFA game in a long, long time. It's still a good game, but new frustrations related to gameplay, and a sleazy impl...
  • Former 2K and THQ community manager goes on Twitter rant dismissing the value of community feedback
    Posted September 16th, 2015 at 7:15 pm 16 Comments »
    Aubrey Sitterson, former community manager at THQ and 2K Sports for the WWE franchise, had a bit of a meltdown on Twitter today in discussing the usefulness of forums - something he says he argued to be shut down during his time with those publishers. That later would move on to how consumer feedback is approached and stating that companies put out the products that they do, in the state they do, because they believe people will buy it regardless - and that consumers are not entitled to anyt...

  • New overtime rules headline pre-release patch for NHL 16
    Posted September 10th, 2015 at 8:00 am 11 Comments »
    When EA Sports first stated that the new 3-on-3 rules for overtime would not be included for launch of NHL 16, many fans were understandably disappointed. The rules were not suddenly sprung on the company out of nowhere - they should have been planning ahead for that scenario to take place - and the company didn't even seem to think it was all that important by saying only that it was something they "would look at" for a post-release update. Thankfully those who pick up NHL 16 next week, ...
