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 »

BaraBariBall’s Plex has neon nipples

Super Pole Riders is an amazing PS4 title

It’s hard to find anything wrong with the simple games in Sportsfriends. They feel something like the antithesis of good design, except they’re not un-fun.

NBA Live 15 reviews are hitting and suggest the embattled basketball series may be turning a corner.

John Cena recites Dylan Thomas in WWE 2K15 “Rage” trailer

No, seriously. John Cena is known more for his battle raps than conventional poetry, but he waxes classic in the last trailer for WWE 2K15 before its Oct. 28 release.

NBA Live tries to capitalize on NBA 2K15 server issues

Touting that your server works isn’t the most ringing endorsement for your game. It’s not unlike promising that the game will boot up when you start it.

Welcome to the NFL, Blogger: A tale of Madden NFL 15 franchise mode

After dealing with mostly head-to-head and Ultimate Team my first month of Madden NFL 15, I finally dove into Connected Careers mode. I created a talented young mobile quarterback named Flash Gordon, who will save every one of us. That, or at least lead the Buffalo Bills back to the Super Bowl. In Buffalo, my more »
