Here are Özil and Thomas Müller, two stars of Germany's national soccer team, acting weird in FIFA. This time their body parts are not glitching through the 5th they're just trying to impress each other.
I'm a little unsure as to where this actually originated - every retweeter is repeating the same "OMG SO REAL" joke - but hey, enjoy it regardless.
Those FIFA games and their glitches...they never cease to amaze. Here's a montage by YouTubers Emil & William, shared on the popular videogames channel. Makes me want to go out and play this version of soccer.
Heading into this console transition my opinion was that, of all the genres that could possibly sell a new Xbox or PlayStation, sports would come in last. Despite the richer visuals and refined experiences I've seen so far, that opinion still stands.
So, we've discovered the formula for doing a next-gen trailer in the sports genre, especially when the series is miles ahead of the competition. Begin with a good 30 seconds of slow-motion pregame, then build up to kick-off/tipoff at the crescendo of a pop anthem. Here's FIFA 14's trailer for PS4 and Xbox One.
In game development realism is dangerous line to traverse, and there is no endgame.
The third of three sports titles releasing on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at launch arrived on shelves today—NBA 2K14—but if reviews and sales figures for its peers are any indication, fans appear to be waiting for the next console generation before they buy the sports titles closing out this one. If at all.
There are two football games on the market. The vast majority of people will only buy one of them. So which one should you buy?
I guess...someone at EA Australia signed off on this? Thinking this was a...good thing?
This is ... remarkable. Well, that's my view of it anyway. Nintendo published a news release this morning that described FIFA 14 on the 3DS in just about the worst terms you can apply to a new sports video game.
They don't get much attention from gaming sites, probably because lol EA Sports, but every year Electronic Arts goes nuts with their live-action commercials for FIFA.
Usually, if someone wants to convince you that the video game they're making is going to be great, they tell you what they're putting in it. But what if they made nearly the same game a year ago? They have to take a different approach.
'Same great gameplay.' People were pissed that FIFA 13 on the PS Vita was essentially a reconditioned FIFA Soccer, the launch title for the device. Well, there's more where that came from for FIFA 14, reports Eurogamer.
In separate announcements this morning, EA Sports said gamers who begin Ultimate Teams on Madden NFL 25 or FIFA 14 for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 may transfer all their cards to those games' versions on Xbox One and PS4, once those consoles release.
FIFA 14 has locked in agreements with 19 of Brazil's top professional clubs, doubling that league's representation in the world's top selling football simulation. The deal also, interestingly, points to one of the vestiges of early licensed sports video games—ones that had permission to use players but not their teams.
If you've ever wanted to see one of the world's best footballers dressed up like a bad Doctor Who villain, all in the name of video games, now's your chance.
The most glaring indictment of the Wii U's poor performance to date is the fact that FIFA—one of the biggest-selling franchises worldwide, in any genre—is publishing for everything but Wii U. FIFA 14 will come out on the PSP. It will publish on the original Wii. There'll be a version on the PS Vita, for god's sake.
I couldn't care how fancy the lighting is on a driving game or shooter on the next-gen systems, but one thing I have been looking forward to seeing is how my favourite sports games look on the Xbox One and PS4.
