If Football—that is, the American National Football League football—used the same naming scheme as “Dungeons & Dragons,” we’d call it “Beer Commercials & Cheerleaders.”
Maybe some impending social situation requires you to understand football. Or maybe you’re just interested in the sport because beer commercials have started to reference Game of Thrones. Well, Kotaku Dot Com’s Tim Rogers (that’s me) is here to help you out with this handy video. It’s a lot like my words-based review…
There’s no more playing Super Smash Bros. for the New Orleans Saints, at least while NFL play-offs are underway. The Times-Picayune reports that all distractions have been removed from the team’s locker room, including an N64 with Smash Bros., while they prepare for Sunday’s game against the Panthers.
Ruben Aguilar is a young French footballer who plays for Montpellier in Ligue 1. He is French, but an error in the Football Manager series of video games has given cruel, false hope to a South American nation starved of international talent.
Madden 18’s artificial intelligence is designed to react to every play, simulating live football right down to the human error. One formation, however, has puzzled the computer-controlled defense, and players are using that mismatch for easy, consistent yardage.
Today, Electronic Arts and the NFL announced the launch of the Madden NFL Club Championship, an esports event that involves all 32 of the NFL’s teams. The competition, which will be part of this year’s Madden NFL Championship Series, starts on August 22, which is the game’s preorder release day. Starting today,…
A court in The Netherlands ruled late last week that Riot must compensate retired Dutch footballer Edgar Davids after determining that a League of Legends champion skin infringed on his personal rights.
Chile’s national football team, reigning South American champions, played Cameroon in the Confederations Cup yesterday, and after scoring what they thought was their first goal (it was later called back for offside) celebrated with a homage to their current Mario Kart obsession.
Everyone in the football universe is talking about Alex Hunter, from pundits Men in Blazers to Ronaldo himself.
Chris “Dubby” McFarland proved himself the best Madden NFL 17 player in the country after defeating Eric “Problem” Wright in the grand finals of the Madden Bowl just over a week ago. Less than a week later he was forced to give back $3,000 of his $75,000 prize winnings after violating EA’s Code of Conduct.
It’s only been a week since FIFA 17 dropped, and we’re already seeing some of the most hilarious glitches of the year.
I’m not the biggest fan of traditional sports games. What I really enjoy are the wackier takes on popular pastimes that channel the familiar into a stranger landscape of rules and regulations.
A pretty great concept. SyBro imagined an American football game with Super Mario characters and made some 3D renders for it.
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.
Today on Highlight Reel we have vehicle splatters, oblivious witchers, near misses, early goal celebrations, accidental ladder kills, and much more!
Cristo Redentor, the giant statue of Jesus that towers above the city of Rio de Janeiro, is one of the world’s great landmarks. It won’t be appearing in Street Fighter V, though, after Capcom decided to swap it out and replace it with...a monstrous replica of what sure looks like the FIFA World Cup trophy.
This is André Schürrle. He’s a very, very good footballer. A lot of people would recognise him as a star for both Wolfsburg and the World Champion German national team. This German web TV host, however, did not.
Ten years ago, I wrote one of the most wrongheaded articles of my career. In a review of 2005’s Blitz: The League for Slate, I predicted that Madden NFL’s then-new monopoly on the National Football League’s license for video game football would restore variety to the virtual gridiron. Surely the single-minded pursuit…
It is one of the oft-old tales in the three-decade (!) history of Madden NFL: When Trip Hawkins, the founder of Electronic Arts, approached John Madden, the Hall of Fame coach and broadcaster, about collaborating on a new version of video game football, Madden stipulated that any game with his name on it would include…
