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.”
Barely a week after the Super Bowl ended, fans of the Cleveland Browns got confirmation they were functionally eliminated from contention next year, too. The team's president and general manager resigned after hiring a new head coach, a comical sequence that is so bass-ackwards you can't even repeat it in Madden.
I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, and Bobby Knight has been a small part of my life for as long as I can remember. I don't think about the guy much any more, but every now and then, the red-sweatered shouter turns up in an unexpected place. That said, he has perhaps never turned up somewhere this unexpected.
MLB 14 The Show will release April 1 on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita and will arrive in May on PS4, Sony said today, ending an anxious stretch for baseball fans wondering if they would be playing a new version of the game on Opening Day.
As promised, NBA Live 14 pumped out a very large patch today to address the many shortcomings, omissions or problems the title showed at launch. Straight away it includes something that should make the game a lot more understandable: A simple practice mode.
New trailer: EA Sports UFC. Still no release date yet for the game (last word was Spring, sometime after March) but here's a detailed look at the fighters' distinct features and animations. The game is for Xbox One and PS4.
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.
College basketball as a video game died long before the lawsuits that killed NCAA Football could do the job. A little more than a year ago, 2K Sports finally pulled the plug on the servers for College Hoops 2K8, the means through which most folks shared rosters reflecting the current year. But there still are ways to…
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.
EA Sports and the NFL "still have a number of years left on our agreements" to exclusively develop and publish video games, EA CEO Andrew Wilson told investors. "We have a number of games in development with the NFL" license, he added. Reports had suggested EA's license to make NFL games would expire this year.
Assuming MLB 14 The Show releases on the first Tuesday of March, as the series has since 2008, then we're five weeks from its anticipated launch and we have to go to freaking Taiwan for our first look at gameplay video. The game hasn't even gotten an official release date. Sony, you owe baseball fans some news. Now.
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.
A federal judge threw out a jury's award of $11 million to the programmer of the original John Madden Football, saying there was no evidence Electronic Arts copied his work for use in future editions of the game without paying royalties to which he would be entitled.
Seattle's Richard Sherman didn't just swat away San Francisco's shot at a Super Bowl, he also crapped all over the 49ers' Michael Crabtree in a postgame interview straight out of Piper's Pit. Sherman mocked Crabtree's credentials while boasting of his own. So I wondered: Is there any objective proof for his claims?
