  • Details on the Next Patch Coming Soon for EA Sports UFC
    Posted October 2nd, 2014 at 11:30 am 4 Comments


    A third patch for EA Sports UFC is due out soon and the company has released the details on the more major changes to expect with it. The two earlier patches, and it looks like this upcoming one, will have helped to dramatically alter the gameplay experience. At release EA UFC pleased just about no one and it showed in reviews and sales numbers. To their credit EA seems to have taken the feedback to heart and done a lot of good with the post-release support.

    A video has accompanied the news highlighting the two new fighters that will also be added: Gunnar Nelson and Tim Kennedy. Anthony Johnson had been planned for this update but was removed after recent domestic violence allegations were followed by the UFC suspending him indefinitely.

  • More Details on MyPark and The Stage for NBA 2K15
    Posted October 1st, 2014 at 2:15 pm 6 Comments


    Earlier today 2K Sports released a trailer for NBA 2K15’s MyPark and teased The Stage. Now the company has provided expanded details on both.

    MyPark and the Jordan Rec Center within it sound compelling. As far as The Stage goes one has to wonder how 2K Sports is getting around this being considered gambling, because it really is, and there are legalities to consider in that. A 45K VC game (the max on PS4) is for all intents and purposes putting $9 on the line – though that cost or the winnings ends up being split between the participants. The Stage is exclusive to PS4 for the first month.  Read more

  • A Look at Improvements Made to Offense in NBA Live 15
    Posted October 1st, 2014 at 12:30 pm 20 Comments


    EA Sports today released a new video spotlighting some of the improvements being delivered in NBA Live 15 specific to the offensive side of the ball. The company has yet to do much of anything to demonstrate how Live 15 will be a better product than last year’s but the examples noted here are a good start at attempting to communicate them. The video shows where work has been done to enhance passing, dribbling, shooting, and contact animations. The three week delay has NBA Live 15 set to release on October 28.

  • MyPark Trailer for NBA 2K15
    Posted October 1st, 2014 at 10:15 am 7 Comments


    With under a week until release 2K Sports has finally introduced a look at improvements to The Park, the online mode introduced in Xbox One and PS4 2K14, now branded as MyPark in NBA 2K15. The trailer doesn’t go into great detail but does mention earning “Rep” and the ability to play with friends as “Squads”. There’s the “Jordan Rec Center” where games become 5v5 with four quarters and NBA rules – partially replicating the “Crew” mode so many desired. Also at the end is a tease of “The Stage” which will be exclusive to the PS4 for the first month before being opened on XB1 on 11/7 and looks as though you’ll be able to wager VC on games there.

    With NBA 2K15 out next week naturally a lot of the recent news has been concentrated on the game. In today’s Daily Dish the focus centers on the player ratings for NBA 2K15 now known for the entire league and the odd marketing strategy that has left several modes shrouded in mystery even still. There’s also a look ahead to the next Madden NFL 15 roster update and a reminder to get entries in for the NBA 2K15 giveaway.

  • All NBA 2K15 Overall Player Ratings
    Posted September 30th, 2014 at 11:30 am 8 Comments


    It took over three weeks to do so but 2K Sports has finally finished revealing all the overall player ratings for NBA 2K15. Only one of the four players to be rated 90+ wasn’t confirmed until now and as expected it’s Chris Paul who comes in at 91. He joins LeBron James (98), Kevin Durant (95), and Tim Duncan (90) in that elite group.

    Six players follow at 89 overall including Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love. Continue on to check out all the overall ratings in the base roster of NBA 2K15!  Read more

  • Madden NFL 15 Week Four Upcoming Roster Update Discussion
    Posted September 30th, 2014 at 10:15 am 40 Comments


    EA Sports should really just name J.J. Watt as the Madden NFL 16 cover athlete. No need to go through a charade like the voting process was for Richard Sherman on Madden 15. No one is impacting the NFL like Watt is right now.

    One change at QB coming this week as the Bills sit E.J. Manuel in favor of Kyle Orton. We’re almost now to the point in the season where teams should get some upgrade or downgrade consideration as entire units based on performance compared to expectations rather than just singling out a few players here and there.

    In this week’s Madden NFL 15 roster update look for Philip Rivers, Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Eli Manning, DeMarco Murray, Larry Donnell, Martellus Bennett, Travis Kelce, Steve Smith, Jarius Wright, Robert Ayers, C.J. Mosley, and Malcolm Jenkins to rise. Names likely to fall include Kirk Cousins, E.J. Manuel, Nick Foles, Tom Brady, Geno Smith, LeSean McCoy, Riley Cooper, Sammy Watkins, Kenny Vaccaro, and Jairus Byrd.

    For the first time in a very long time there was nothing newsworthy to write about today (that shouldn’t be the case throughout this week with NBA 2K15 still to announce features) so I tackle a few different topics with The Daily Dish. NBA 2K15 won’t have its servers turned on until next Tuesday and that’s reason for some concern, discussion has again been raised over how to best implement penalties in Madden, more top player ratings are out for NBA Live 15, and a reminder to enter in the NBA 2K15 giveaway!
