With the arrival of GTA V, I don't see myself purchasing a sports game until I get my xbone. I am not picking Madden, FIFA or 2k14 until I get the new system. And let's face it with Golf and Tennis in GTA I can get a sports fix in there.

This gen there has been a lot of leaps in terms of sports gaming. There has also been a lot of unfulfilled promises or expectations. I think this gen was a stop gap for sports games. While HD graphics and deep franchise modes are the norm, I think ... Read More

From Feb 26th to March 4th there will be a huge games sale on XBL, 60 titles up to 85% off. It didn't specify which games would be heavily discounted but COD Black Ops 2 is on the list so is Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 also is on the list. No sports games make it but this gives us a chance to check out some other games

If you're like me, then on the 20th you watched all 2 hours of Sony's presser and watched as much coverage as you could on the PS4 announcement. I watched all five hours of IGN's coverage, watched numerous youtube videos of random people's thoughts. My initial reaction was "I need to buy a Vita now". Being able to remote play a video game while watching a real game on my TV will be great. As I continue to read articles (like MMChrisS' great blog today). I think this next generation of consoles will ... Read More

I haven't had cable for over 2 years now and I don't miss it. It all started with a conversation with a comcast representative about just wanting to have HD channels. Just to get HD at the time (and last time I checked it's still this way) I had to pay for 200+ channels I didn't want. I told the rep "look I just want HD why can't I just pay for what I want to use?". Of course being a customer service rep he didn't have the answers, nor did I fault him, how was he suppose to know? It was then when ... Read More

With Sony having a "Future of Playstation" presser and Microsoft rumored to also be announcing their new console as well in the near future, there is one minor feature I would love both consoles to implement. It's a feature which I think most sports fans could relate to, it's a feature that should be relatively easy to implement What is this simple feature you ask?

Console usage stat tracking. Me being a stats guy, I have recently signed up for Raptr.com, which kind of does that ... Read More

Man it's tough being a sports gamer. Personally I love 2012 for sports gaming. FIFA13, NBA 2k13, MLB the Show 12, Madden and NCAA 13 all got a ton of time in my xbox/ps3. But what makes it tough is to get quality time with other games. This is going to sound like a pimping for Gamefly. But Gamefly is the only reason I can stay up on other types of games.

I played Assassin's Creed III and just got Far Cry 3 in the mail... I've missed out on Halo 4 and Borderlands 2. By the time I ... Read More

In my first blog, I revealed my 2012 sports game of the year, which was FIFA 13. Five to ten years ago I would have called you crazy that I would even consider a soccer game to play, let alone love it so much to make it my game of the year.

Like a typical american I grew up despising the game of soccer (which I will call it because I will confuse myself if I call it football, So to my UK readers I do apologize). I grew up playing basketball, football, baseball and golf as a kid. ... Read More

It's my first blog here at OS. As I will try and blog about sports and gaming I think this is the perfect spot. So before I dive into my game of the year post, let me give you a background on me. I live in the Portland Metro Area in Oregon. I am a live long Oregon State Beavers fan (so yes this year has been good). I've been gaming since I was 5 (I'm 28 now). So I have over 20 years of gaming experience. Growing up I have always loved sports. My dad coached basketball for 25 plus years and I have ... Read More
