    Posted August 6th, 2015 at 9:30 am 4 Comments »
    The NHL 16 EA Sports Hockey League beta has now been open for a week - and it remains so through tomorrow - providing an unprecedented (for the sports gaming genre) glimpse at the game which isn't due out until mid-September. EASHL was a mode that I found very compelling when it launched in NHL 09, and played heavily that year and a few that followed. However beyond then interest waned as it went largely unchanged and took on a microtransaction slant in the upgrading of player ratings. ...

    Konami today officially announced that they have acquired the license to next year's UEFA Euro tournament. This is a license that had been held by EA Sports since 2000, with the publisher having released a game on the every-four-year schedule with the last being in 2012.

    Early this morning, out of Gamescom, EA Sports announced a new mode for FIFA 16 that is similar in nature to Draft Champions mode being introduced in Madden NFL 16. FIFA Ultimate Team Draft will involve a process of team-building that has players selected through a draft format where five options are given to choose from at each turn.

    Posted August 3rd, 2015 at 1:15 pm 8 Comments »
    The E3 trailer for FIFA 16 included a glance at CenturyLink Field, home of the Seattle Sounders, and that led to some hope that there would be more MLS stadiums represented in the series. Unfortunately that won't be the case. Nine new stadiums are making their way into the series with the upcoming game but other than CenturyLink none are from MLS. Still it's a solid group of stadiums, each of which (other than CenturyLink since it's been in Madden, and hasn't even had its north skyline - ...
