  • EA Sports UFC: Hits and Misses
    Posted June 23rd, 2014 at 2:00 pm 19 Comments »
    Hope for the future of UFC games were high when EA Sports announced the acquisition of the license just over two years ago. There was to be significant development time and investment made prior to release of the first entry in the series, it would launch on the new systems and have an opportunity similar to how Fight Night Round 3 stood out early in the previous generation, and the company was coming off a good first effort in the sport with 2010's EA Sports MMA. It's especially disapp...

  • Press Row Hangout: Reviewing EA UFC
    Posted June 21st, 2014 at 12:45 pm 10 Comments »
    The launch of the EA Sports UFC franchise was highly anticipated but has been met with disappointing reviews and fairly poor consumer word of mouth. Check out the 74 minute segment from last night's live Press Row Hangout where I'm joined by Rich Grisham and T.J. Lauerman to break down our experiences with and assessments of the game!

  • Madden NFL 15 Cover Prominently Features Equipment Not in the Game
    Posted June 20th, 2014 at 1:45 pm 50 Comments »
    The official cover art for Madden NFL 15 made its way to retailers yesterday. Putting aside that the cover art is awful - hopefully the petition and lobbying from Sherman to get the entire LOB on the cover will lead to a change - it features front and center Vapor Jet gloves and shoes that still have not been added to the series. Nike took over the license two years ago yet those items have yet to replace the old Reebok equipment. Screenshots and videos have shown that they aren't included t...
  • NHL 15 Exits E3 In Strengthened Position; PGA Tour Sunk By Its Appearance
    Posted June 20th, 2014 at 11:00 am 7 Comments »
    While E3 last week predictably offered no bombshells EA Sports rolled out the first looks at four upcoming titles and offered some additional information on each. Nearly 4,000 voters chimed in on each poll that was posted following the event regarding the games that most and least impressed them with their showings.  (more…)...
  • EA Sports Hopes To Make College Football and Basketball Games in the Future
    Posted June 19th, 2014 at 5:15 pm 24 Comments »
    In testimony earlier this week in the Ed O'Bannon case vs the NCAA, an Electronic Arts representative expressed the desire the company has to develop college-based video games in the future. Joel Linzner, EVP of Business & Legal, stated EA would be "very interested in acquiring the rights" of players to use in the games. Of course this would require the NCAA to remove most if not all restrictions on the "amateur" status of athletes which is what the class action suit is attempting to...
  • Guest Review: EA Sports UFC
    Posted June 19th, 2014 at 11:15 am 12 Comments »
    by Dylan Favorite I have been eagerly anticipating the release of EA Sports UFC since it was officially announced two years ago. Unfortunately, after spending a good chunk of time with it, I can say that it is considerably flawed. I have enjoyed all of the past UFC games from Undisputed 2009 to EA MMA. I would consider myself well versed in both the games and the sport. This version just falls flat in some key areas. (more…)...
  • RBI Baseball 14 Releasing Next Week on Xbox One and PlayStation 4
    Posted June 18th, 2014 at 5:00 pm 5 Comments »
    Few will care at this point but the Xbox One is about to get its only baseball game. RBI Baseball 14 is set to go out next Tuesday, June 24, on XB1 as well as PS4 for $20. What has been long advertised for spring release will fall outside that window but by only a few days. While RBI initially generated some excitement when announced early this year that quickly dissipated when the game was essentially never promoted (no information or video) and then released overpriced and to extrem...
  • Unique Fighter Abilities in EA Sports UFC
    Posted June 18th, 2014 at 11:45 am 4 Comments »
    One aspect of EA Sports UFC that was never really discussed relates to the various special abilities held by the fighters which in theory would highlight their strengths and traits in fights while also adding a larger sense of personalization for created fighters. Unfortunately one of the biggest complaints with the game is that the individuals all tend to fight the same rather than in the different manners they actually do in real fights (strategically and relating to personal skills). ...
