  • Your Thoughts on the EA Sports UFC 2 News
    Posted November 23rd, 2015 at 1:00 pm 4 Comments »
    The big sports gaming news this month has related to the official announcement of the sequel to 2014's EA Sports UFC. That game was a disappointment but some reason for hope came about through developer EA Canada's extensive post-release support that improved the game immensely. While the popularity of the sport has waned in recent years, there's still reason to think UFC could be a successful bi-yearly franchise, and EA is hoping a digital revenue generator, in the form of Ultimate Team, wi...
  • What is your go-to sports game right now?
    Posted October 26th, 2015 at 1:45 pm 44 Comments »
    With all the sports games out for the year attention turns towards actually playing them instead of just following news and developments in anticipation of them. Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 has emerged from the group as the highest rated sports game since 2013, while FIFA 16 and NBA 2K16 are dominating in terms of worldwide sales. Of course there's also Madden NFL 16 which has a strong hold on many, some may be settling in with NHL 16, revisiting MLB 15: The Show due to postseason interest,...
  • Which Pro-Am from the upcoming NBA games is the most intriguing?
    Posted August 18th, 2015 at 11:15 am 8 Comments »
    NBA 2K16 and NBA Live 16 don't share a lot in common in terms of the modes they'll be offering up, but they do have one that is not just similar in nature but share the same name: Pro-Am. The 2K Pro-Am takes the place of last year's Jordan Rec Center, and continues with 5-on-5 (every player can be controlled by a different user or some spots taken by CPU) and NBA rules. Leaderboards and matchmaking have been added - no more time wasted waiting in "Got Next" spots! However the biggest new...
  • Your thoughts on the short-term draft modes coming to EA Sports games
    Posted August 8th, 2015 at 1:15 pm 8 Comments »
    With the success of the Ultimate Team model in EA Sports games, the company is faced with not just how to evolve and keep that mode fresh, but the challenge of developing new modes that capitalize further on what they've learned from it. The first attempt at such a mode is being introduced this year in Madden NFL 16 and FIFA 16. Draft Champions was announced at E3 while FUT Draft just premiered at Gamescom. Though they borrow conceptually from Ultimate Team they've eliminated the long-ter...
  • Does having few licensed courses and golfers affect your McIlroy purchase decision?
    Posted June 29th, 2015 at 5:00 pm 15 Comments »
    Just two weeks now - and well under that for those with EA Access, and Rory McIlroy PGA Tour will be in the hands of consumers. EA Sports has made a concerted effort to appeal to a more casual crowd with the game, offering up multiple play "styles", fantasy courses, and a mode called the Night Club Challenge. What they haven't done is tout their lineup of licensed courses and golfers and for good reason. There are only 12 real golfers on the roster and only 8 courses included on disc (plu...
  • Your Thoughts on Connected Franchise Improvements with Madden NFL 16
    Posted June 1st, 2015 at 4:00 pm 10 Comments »
    Late last week EA Sports revealed the new features and improvements that have been made for Connected Franchise Mode in Madden NFL 16. Many of the features hit on requests from those who have played the mode in recent years, including the ability to sim a specific result, Combine information being available without the need to spend scouting points, and the ability to practice freely with the team. On the flip side the "Goals" system has its merits but also drawbacks and it's been expa...
  • Your Thoughts on the Feature Set for NHL 16
    Posted May 20th, 2015 at 5:15 pm 7 Comments »
    The NHL season has only just reached the Conference Finals but EA Sports has provided an early glimpse ahead to fall's NHL 16. There's far more substance here, providing a full features list, than would be typical four months out from release and with E3 just under four weeks away. The experience of last year, when the company lost much of their consumer base by releasing a half-finished game and attempting to hide that fact until the very last minute, has necessitated this strategy of b...
  • Your Thoughts on the First Madden NFL 16 Feature News
    Posted May 18th, 2015 at 5:15 pm 19 Comments »
    Last week EA Sports rolled out the first information related to Madden NFL 16. For the most part it was underwhelming and nondescript. The exception related to receiver-defender interactions including new controls for each side and more situations that will draw penalties. That will be the focus of the two polls today. The first asks how much does the news on receiver-defender interactions matter. Is this a big deal that has increased anticipation towards Madden 16? Or is it not enough c...
