Nine minutes and 40 seconds before the end of Super Bowl 51, the Atlanta Falcons were about to cap off what had until then been a snoozer. Leading 28-12, the Falcons had a 99.9% win probability and had just gotten the ball back, giving them the chance to truly heal America by defeating the New England Patriots. Then,…
The debut trailer for the Nintendo Switch was packed with good-looking 20-somethings playing in fashionable apartments and rooftop parties. As a 40-something father, it didn’t feel like a product aimed my way. Nintendo’s Super Bowl ad fixes that feeling.
We’re two days away from the annual Big Football Game, where the Panthers and Broncos will face one another in a match that would be extremely lopsided if they were actual animals (and may be just as lopsided regardless).
Up until the very end of this commercial, the entire thing comes across as a Nike ad—not something about Pokémon. That’s just how fierce it is.
It's easy to crank out a next-day t-shirt for a major Super Bowl happening, but assembling bricks in the form of the only part of Katy Perry's halftime show that matters takes time and patience.
During last night's Super Bowl, millions watched as Kate Upton stepped out of a bathtub, donned battle armor and escaped a crumbling stronghold on horseback. The game she's advertising is nowhere near as exciting.
You'd think that the infamous NFL player nicknamed Beast Mode would be okay with the gory finishing moves of Mortal Kombat. He's not. At all. Marshawn Lynch isn't down with seeing people's intestines.
Today's Super Bowl was brutal to watch, even if you're a Seahawks fan (okay, maybe not if you're a Seahawks fan)—but at least there was one moment worth watching: Jack Bauer's first TV appearance since 2010, in this new teaser for 24: Live Another Day.
The real Super Bowl is going to be played between two teams of professional athletes. This Super Bowl featured a team of genetically-engineered supermen and a team of pencil-legged children. The results were not pretty.
If the Super Bowl was kicking off on the Death Star and not in New York, it'd be the Tauntauns versus the Wattos today. That's according to this set of helmets reimagining the NFL inside the Star Wars canon. Every choice is outstanding (St. Louis Twi'leks, for sure) but the most apt has to be the Washington Gungans.
When Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers plays Madden, he always plays as himself. Using someone else would be "cheating on myself." With the Super Bowl in town, the Museum of the Moving Image opened its exhibit "Madden: 25 Years and Running." A video by ANIMALNewYork shows what happens when NFLers get on the sticks.
The week before the Super Bowl in NY/NJ, some NFL players spend their time on the field. Others like to party it up in New York's lavish nightclubs and restaurants. But Nate Irving? Nate Irving likes to play Pokémon.
With the Super Bowl around the corner, it seems important to put all the hype behind the big event into perspective—particularly if you think the average sports fan and video game fan have nothing in common.
Degenerate gamblers, Madden NFL 25 says you should get your money down on the Broncos. The game predicts two Super Bowl firsts: snow, and overtime—and a 31-28 victory for Denver.
The Super Bowl is coming up. It's one of the biggest sporting events in the world. Weirdly, this is in spite of the majority of people on this planet not knowing how the hell American Football is actually played.
This emblem tutorial brings together two dewchuggin' classics—football and Call of Duty, enough to make any bro-gamer stand up straight and armpit fart Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA.
Here's last night's split-second appearance by Jerry Lambert, the actor best known for playing mascot Kevin Butler. "Giddy-up now, Deion," Lambert says to legendary NFL cornerback Deion Sanders. Presumably later he tried to sell him a PS3. [Thanks, Rob!]
Earlier this week, the official Madden NFL 12 simulation of Super Bowl XLVI took both the underdog and the under for the first time in the past nine years, calling the New York Giants as 27-24 winners over the New England Patriots. A simulation run on dearly departed Madden nemesis NFL 2K5 returned the opposite…
