    by Brendan Wilhide MLB Manager 2015 is the latest version of the popular iOOTP series of text-based manangement sims. The new name reflects the fact that the series has an official full MLB license for the first time in the game's history. The new license is a welcome addition to what has become a solid portable version of its more illustrious desktop counterpart, Out of the Park Baseball, and fans will welcome the new license atop an already familiar and strong feature set. Longtime fan...

    MLB 15: The Show might very well be the most complete product in the series' history. Areas of strength have been improved upon considerably but those that have been deficient in the past for the most part continue to be so. It's one of the few sports games that can be assessed fairly easily and defined by its clear positives and negatives. That makes it a game that can be either purchased, or passed on, with confidence based on an individual's interests. Check out the full review of MLB 15:...

    Expectations for MLB 15: The Show were high heading into release, and justifiably so, as the series is arguably the most consistent in all of sports gaming. It was easy to anticipate what would be great about the game and know what likely wouldn't be up to par. That allows for a high level of confidence in buying from those interested in the product. For the most part those expectations have been precisely met. MLB 15 is a fantastic game that has improved on its strengths but done little...
  • Super Mega Baseball is the Late Season Sports Gaming Hero

    Super Mega Baseball enters the marketplace without the support of a major publisher and with it the normal marketing push and fanfare those games get. It lacks the licensing, rich feature sets, and revenue-driven modes that have become the norm. The sports genre's alternatives, games that acted as bridges to the highly-detailed and increasingly complicated sim offerings, have gone practically extinct in recent years. Despite all that Super Mega has every right to be considered a legitimat...

    The hope going into the release of Super Mega Baseball, due out tomorrow on PS4 and PS3, was that it could at least partially fill the huge void in sports gaming left by the practical extinction of the non-traditional licensed sim or "arcade" games of old. Thankfully Super Mega has come through in that regard. The game is very fun and really well designed. It may have the look of an "arcade" game but it's grounded enough in realism that it should appeal to a wide audience. I'll be posting...
  • NHL 2K Mobile Review

    by Brendan Wilhide The NHL season is moving along at full speed now and with the colder weather comes even more desire to play some games. Hockey fans with iOS and Android devices received a new version of NHL 2K this season but, like a preseason darling which has stumbled out of the gates, this year's game offers little to excite past 2K fans and is even disappointing enough that those who blindly spend $8 on it may be turned off from even considering future releases.  (more…)...
  • NBA Live 15 Is The Game That Should Have Rebooted The Series
    by
    Posted October 27th, 2014 at 10:30 am 32 Comments »
    EA Sports isn't treating NBA Live 15 like it's a critical release for the series which desperately needs to establish itself on stable ground and show potential to achieve significant growth in the market within the next few years. In fact they've shown little urgency at all and even have basically admitted it's not a stellar product. No one would have been fooled otherwise but it stands in stark contrast to the way the company promoted previous failed efforts where they instead presented a ...
