The newest Madden game just came out, and it has an interactive story mode that actually sounds really cool. After waiting six months for the game to go on sale for $20, I’ll probably give it a whirl. The rest of the game is about what you expect by now. Those who pay 60 bucks year after year for the game see…
Madden NFL 18 has a story mode, a first for a Madden game. Called “Longshot,” it follows the career of fictional would-be quarterback Devin Wade. Unlike Madden 18’s Ultimate Team mode, which allows you to feel like an all-powerful football god who can make record-setting numbers of touchdowns per game, Longshot isn’t…
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,…
Jonathan Allen just got picked by Washington at #17 in the NFL draft, guaranteeing him a big paycheck. Which he is most excited to spend on...something that can play Total War.
Yeah yeah, you knew all along. Whatever, I’ll self-own with this post, I’ve already taken nothing but Ls over the last year.
On Monday afternoon, a group of mothers and other family members of men who have died with chronic traumatic encephalopathy gathered in a room at a hotel in Houston to hold a press conference announcing CTE Awareness Day and promoting their group’s eponymous website, Faces of CTE.
Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was wearing these Nintendo-themed cleats for today’s game against the Ravens.
Are you still buying the annual iterations of a series that peaked a decade ago, shelling out 60 bucks for nothing but updated rosters and the privilege of continuing to be beaten by racist 14-year-olds in online head-to-head play? Happy glitch hunting.
A pretty great concept. SyBro imagined an American football game with Super Mario characters and made some 3D renders for it.
This is how Microsoft wants you to consume the National Football League in the near future. With Hololens goggles, and pinching, and holographic Russell Wilsons (Russell Wilsi?).
It takes some fiddling, but a dedicated fan has made sure that if you want to use the current roster of NFL players in a GameCube sports game released in 2002, you can.
On Christmas Day, Sony Pictures Entertainment will release Concussion, a film that will almost certainly be very bad. As we’ve already noted, the film—starring Will Smith as CTE researcher Dr. Bennet Omalu—suffers from significant issues, both in theory and practice. (When the film studio’s lawyers call for the film…
Everyone needs to shut up about the reversed pass interference call from last week's playoff game between the Cowboys and Lions, because the real travesty of the day occurred before the game even started.
A federal appeals court ruled a lawsuit by ex-NFL players against Electronic Arts can move forward, the AP reports. The lawsuit seeks compensation over Madden NFL featuring ex-players on "historical" teams in everything but name. EA lost a similar lawsuit brought by ex-NCAA players. The company settled for $40 million.
In May of last year, when Microsoft first unveiled the Xbox One, they made grand, lofty promises. Here was the console that would change the way we watch TV, revolutionizing all things NFL and enhancing our football Sundays forever and ever.
For some reason, EA thought it would be a good idea to let the internet make GIFs using Madden player models. They made a site for it and everything, underwritten by the NFL, NFLPA, and Google. We spent 15 minutes trying to make them regret it. Here's what we came up with, but we're sure you criminals can do better.
The next toys coming to McDonald's Happy Meals are generic NFL player figurines to promote Madden 15. Yes, there's an alternative for non-sports fans:
Over at SI's Extra Mustard, Jon Robinson has a wonderful look at eight features the NFL forced EA Sports to remove from its Madden series of video games. They are, roughly, what you'd expect: a whole lot of things related to player safety, including helmets popping off, coaches being run over on the sidelines, and…
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.
