On Green, a new online golf game was revealed today during a Korean media event. It's running on CryEngine 3 so, besides the pretty environment, golf ball physics will probably be top notch as well.
Ah golf — the sport of kings! There's nothing like a good day out on the golf course. That is, until all the wildlife and native peoples you've displaced start reminding you that there's blood on your hands. That's where Envirogolf comes into play!
The end of Tiger Woods as the face of video game golf was set in motion years ago, and it had nothing to do with Perkins waitresses or a nine-iron through the rear windshield. It had nothing to do with a two-year winless streak or a drought, now spanning five years, without a major championship.
The Tiger Woods PGA Tour series will end its 16-year run in 2013 as EA Sports announced it has parted ways with the star golfer. EA Sports will continue a golf simulation under PGA Tour branding on next generation consoles, the publisher said today.
I love open world games. But nine times out of ten, the things I love to do in them don't involve the main premise of the game.
Alongside fighting games, longtime dive bar staple Golden Tee is one of the last viable arcade cabinets. Arcade titles aren't rated by the ESRB, so if Golden Tee wants to put a big ol' telephone pole cigar in its players' mouths, it can without being called out for "tobacco use." And it will, because Golden Tee DGAF.
Crime is a constant feature of video games writing. Somewhere, someone is doing something illicit with them—sometimes comically stupid, sometimes tragic. Games and consoles are currency, objects of dispute, sometimes even weapons themselves. Kotaku's Police Blotter is here to round up the latest in games crime.
In no rec league could I ever throw a no-hitter. Alone on a basketball court I'd need half an hour to score 69 points—and a trampoline to dunk. But I can do all of those things in my living room. If video games give us the conceit of doing the impossible, only now has one demonstrated how hard that really is.
Internet superstar Tom Scott (who we were only talking about a few weeks back) wanted to play some mini-golf for his birthday. So he had a course built. One incorporating elements of Minecraft, Portal and...Wheel of Fortune?
Calamity Jane, the fabled putter of the Augusta National co-founder Bobby Jones, graces the cover of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13's special edition, along with the club's signature Green Jacket. Oh yeah, some decent golfers also share the packshot of the main product on PS3 and Xbox 360.
This March will mark the third straight year in which Tiger Woods is not the sole star on the cover of a video game named Tiger Woods. But that shouldn't suggest that the golfer, winless since an embarrassing marital scandal broke two years ago, is being eased out by EA Sports.
Golfers Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy prevailed in a three-week vote-off to determine the co-stars of the cover of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, which will be the second game in the series' 15-year run to feature a second golfer in addition to Woods.
Somewhat obscured by the promotion surrounding Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13's fan-voted cover contest is the fact the game, when it arrives in March, will be the first EA Sports title fully playable on Xbox 360 with Kinect.
As it stages two fan-voted playoffs to choose the next cover in the series, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 has also revealed that the game's stable of 22 golf professionals will be joined by what sound like celebrity golfers.
Why worry about which sports game to play on your Xbox 360 when you can get baseball, hockey, basketball, golf, football, and other football, all in one handy Kinect game?
Arcade games still have a pulse, and the venerable Golden Tee Golf franchise is not going to be caught resting on its laurels. Developer Incredible Technologies is offering a preview of it's update for the coming year, Golden Tee Live 2012. Take a look at the places you'll be able to tee off.
The lie I faced on the seventh green at Costa Navarino was so steep, it's a wonder I didn't need rappelling gear to address the ball. My caddy, who has recommended twisting shots that skip over bunkers and thread between trees, suddenly had no advice. Without any starting point for my read, I had no hope of making…
Golf, in real life, never took root in me. I had friends who played, and invited me along. As a young sports writer I covered a couple of exciting tournaments. In college, I enrolled in a golf class my senior year and was even partnered with N.C. State's quarterback, a guy who later became a a club professional in…
Golf, with an emphasis on precision, and players always initiating rather than reacting to the action, is a natural for the mobile platform. That doesn't mean any offering - even one with the weight of Tiger Woods and EA Sports' names behind it - is automatically on the green in two.
My first visit to Augusta National broke the club's dress code with almost criminal negligence: I was wearing basketball shorts, a T-shirt, and was unshaven to boot. Sure, I was on my couch, but I told myself I was stepping to the tee box on the first hole of the world's most prestigious golf course. Does a trip to…
