  • Another gaming-related controversy shines light on nefarious activities
    Posted July 5th, 2016 at 10:15 am 4 Comments »
    A huge controversy has arisen in the gaming world and the ramifications of how it all plays out could eventually impact the sports gaming genre. Two of the biggest Youtubers out there have been caught in a web of lies and deception after heavily promoting a "skin" gambling site for the game Counter Strike: Global Offensive that they failed to mention they actually owned. Not only were minors permitted to bet on the site but it's possible they manipulated the results for streams in which the...
  • NBA 2K17 will have an all-time great video game team in the Golden State Warriors
    Posted July 4th, 2016 at 9:45 am 20 Comments »
    Did you think the 73-9 Golden State Warriors were a powerhouse in NBA 2K16? Well, prepare yourself for 2K17, as Kevin Durant is coming to make them even more unstoppable and basically the only team you'll ever see used online. The Warriors now have four All-Stars in Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. The last three MVPs reside on the team (Curry and Durant). The closest thing to what has been formed with the Warriors would probably be the 2003-04 Los Angeles...

    Posted July 3rd, 2016 at 1:15 pm 2 Comments »
    Last week what was long suspected by some was finally verified. Some of the most sought-after players in FIFA Ultimate Team were not playing up to their ratings given that the Chemistry boosts were not being applied to them. That meant lower rated and cheaper player cards could actually be better performers on the pitch. With a mode that generates hundreds of millions each year for EA Sports that is obviously a massive issue and has called into question the integrity Ultimate Team. We d...

    Early in the week a number of very active players in MLB The Show 16's Diamond Dynasty mode had their accounts banned preventing them from accessing any online features.

    Two major controversies arose this week and they have raised questions regarding the rights of consumers who purchase video games and spend money on digital items within them. With MLB The Show 16, developer Sony San Diego banned a relatively large number of player accounts but some people may have found themselves banished unjustly.

  • Concerns over recent MLB The Show 16 account bannings being investigated
    Posted June 30th, 2016 at 8:30 am 9 Comments »
    On Monday a fairly large number of accounts were banned in MLB The Show 16. Typically wiping out cheaters would be a good thing, creating a level playing field for those who are competing within the rules - but the situation wasn't nearly as simple at that. It quickly became apparent that something might be amiss with some people possibly being unjustifiably banned. After initially saying they would be not be reevaluating anyone's status, and being abrasive in their responses to any an...

    Posted June 29th, 2016 at 1:15 pm 5 Comments »
    In recent years the Madden franchise has failed to properly represent the equipment that players wear on gameday. It's especially embarrassing when even the covers prominently feature equipment not found in the game. That's about to change with Madden NFL 17, as a lot of new licensed gear has been added and the equipment carrying over has been scanned in order to look much better.  (more…)...
