The Zen of Cat Goes Fishing

I wanted something simple to play before I’d fall asleep. A soothing sort of game, one where objectives were there, but didn’t really matter. They were trappings to ease one into the mechanics, but never forced the player down one route another. Something with no complications, that only required me to enjoy the ride. I more »

Let me give you the summary run down. A ten-year-old, Detroit Lions fan was part of a musical chairs competition at a Dallas Cowboys fan event for a copy of Electronic Arts’ Madden 15. The kid won, but the game announcer decided that a Lions fan shouldn’t be allowed to win, and held a second more »

Maybe EA should start looking into cricket simulations. Football is getting more and more expensive. According to the Orlando Sentinel, a federal appeals court has ruled three retired NFL players can sue regarding the publisher regarding historic modes in Madden NFL.

2014 Gaming Memories: Getting defensive in Madden NFL 15

Defense wins championships, but a lot of Madden NFL players have confessed to not caring that much about it. That was understandable in Madden NFL 25. Even elite defenses in that game looked like the 2014 New Orleans Saints. EA’s task this year was to make defense fun to play, and I’m happy to report more »

2K Sports banning players for creating Chris Benoit in WWE 2K15

Celebrities may be gifted at things such as acting, singing or in this case, pro wrestling. But away from their chosen profession, they have as many problems as the rest of us. Often, they have even more because everyone is watching them. Chris Benoit is a case of a performer’s fans separating the work they more »

WWE 2K15 matches have a Monday Night Raw pace, and that’s great

WWE 2K15 goes more simulation than arcade, and I love the change. In previous installments, it wasn’t uncommon to see somebody really good at the pin meter kickout of 3-4 finishing moves. That’s exactly the sort of thing that happens on pay-per-views, but it doesn’t happen on Monday Night Raw, or during every single match. more »
