  • Press Row Hangout Clip: EA Sports UFC Demo Impressions
    Posted June 6th, 2014 at 1:30 pm 3 Comments »
    In another clip from the latest Press Row Hangout the panel discusses the EA Sports UFC demo. The two main areas of concern seem to fall on the realism and the complexity of the game. Can UFC draw in consumers with the built-for-next-gen visuals or is the game inherently never going to reach a more casual crowd due to the necessary complicated controls? Make sure to check out my full impressions here and watch the half hour UFC hangout segment below. ComplexEmbed.Application.initialize({...

    With E3 just days away now this clip from the latest Press Row Hangout centers discussion on expectations headed into the event. What news will be made for Madden NFL 15, NBA 2K15, FIFA 15, and others? Will there be any surprise announcements?

    In another clip from the most recent Press Row Hangout, the details of the free World Cup content coming to FIFA 14 on all platforms is discussed. What it is, whether EA made a good decision by having it as a separate mode, and if it is compelling enough to get us interested in playing.
