    EA Sports UFC 3 has been well-supported with new content and gameplay improvements since releasing early this year, but that support is coming to a close with the release of a new patch today. The free update does a lot for gameplay, makes Knockout Mode and Stand and Bang Mode playable online, and adds five prominent fighters to the roster in Tito Ortiz, Matt Serra, Kimbo Slice, Mirko Cro Cop, and Wanderlei Silva.  (more…)...

    After a long journey that began with a failed Kickstarter, Mutant Football League came out in late 2017 on PC and then followed on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 earlier this year. The game was rough around the edges, somewhat intentionally so, and offered some enjoyment but maybe not the longevity one would hope for. That could change due to additions being made to the game late this summer which were initially announced last month.  (more…)...

  • How to pre-order and save big on NBA Live 19

    Last year EA Sports attempted to entice consumers to try NBA Live 18 by aggressively dropping the price post-release. Prior to that though they also hoped to generate some pre-orders by discounting the price of the game for day one down to $40 (it went up to $60 upon release). Even at the lower price it was probably asking too much to expect all but a few to commit to a game that wasn't guaranteed to be up-to-par given the history of the series over the last decade. Now though, coming off...

    NBA Live 19 wasn't able to generate much buzz out of EA Play, despite some announcements related to features for the upcoming game that had little to do with the actual NBA. The series was able to get back onto solid footing last year but even while EA was practically giving it away it didn't gain a whole lot of traction with consumers. Strengths are looking to be capitalized on with NBA Live 19 by expanding The One career mode while introducing Real Player Motion, the new animation technolo...

Prior to that there was only some vague details on what The Golf Club 2019 would feature over last year's edition: online Skins Matches with virtual currency on the line, a new single player Career Mode, “SpeedTree Technology” for improved visuals, more character customization options, and enhancemen...
