What was that?
Tuesday, August 2, 2011

By now the news is breaking everywhere about the EA Sports Season Ticket program. Peter Moore, the president of EA Sports, has posted the info on his blog, and the EA website has all the info on the game. We also posted a synopsis of what the program includes earlier today.

It really is a different take on how to do things. People can debate the legitimacy of the program or who it is serving, but it is absolutely ... Read More

Thursday afternoon will be EA's time to show off some of its latest and greatest games on the horizon. Tomorrow's Summer Showcase event will include some live presentations and announcements before breaking off so press folks can play some games and talk to developers.

Now, as far as you sports fanatics go, I will be there checking out some of the latest sports games. As of now, it appears NHL 12 and NBA Jam: On Fire ... Read More

As if you really needed another reminder.

Nevertheless, consider this a friendly PSA from Operation Sports. We previously posted all the details about the demo, and everyone should expect it to hit their respective consoles in the morning at some point.

Also, don't forget that EA Sports will most likely provide some sort of "tuner update" -- think of these like patches/slider tweaks that can be instantaneously ... Read More

I actually wrote this a while ago, but it seems more relevant now that there still is not a "confirmed" perfect game out in the wild -- there are videos surfacing of the perfect games being thrown, but there's no guarantee all requirements were met and so forth.


The term "pick up and play" gets thrown around a lot, but if the MLB 2K11 Million Dollar Perfect Game Challenge at the ... Read More

Being a big company inevitably means mixed messages will spew forth from the innards of the beast, but it's always a bit awkward when the general manager of the free-to-play branch of your company says a $60 price model is an "exploitative" and "harsh" way to do things.

Of course Ben Cousins, the aforementioned GM of EA's Easy Studios, has another agenda here in that the studio's new ... Read More
I don't mean to treat my blog here like my Tumblr account, but I have to share this video real quick.

Yes, I am sniping a bit (I actually think the graphics look good overall), but Charlie's face apparently melted somewhere along the way.

The Kinect has had a strong showing so far in terms of moving units. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed at CES that the Kinect had sold eight million units in its first 60 days on sale. While that number ended up being a shipped amount and not a sold amount, the numbers were and still are impressive.

However, the selection of games is much less impressive at this point. While ... Read More

When it comes to video games, it's sometimes shocking how quickly gamers and media alike move on to that "next big game" on the horizon. Games are too often seemingly forgotten and pushed aside the same week that they are released.

It's an alarming ongoing trend, but it's also perfectly understandable. Simply put, new games are exciting. It's fun to talk about them, and it's even more fun to speculate about how good or bad an upcoming game is going to be. You see similar trends here ... Read More

While Chris Sanner is rocking the Wii side of things, I will be on the PS3 side doing the same. My game of choice is also EA Sports Active 2, but I will not be supplementing it with a second workout game like Chris.

I will also not blog as much as Chris, but I will be taking part in EA Active 2's nine-week program while trying to stick to a sound diet. The nine-week program includes four workouts ... Read More

Juha wrote a nice little article yesterday about NHL 11 Ultimate Team. Ultimately, he does not quite get the appeal of the mode or feel a connection with his squad.

Be that as it may, I have to disagree with my Finnish friend. Ultimate Team is consuming my limited idle hours, and it's doing so at a time when there are a hundred other games I want/need/have to play during this ridiculous release season. Ultimate Team truly is my nightmare.

Game reviews are odd. Generally speaking, reviewers get a game a bit before it is released to the public, they play the crap out of it, and then they post a review near or on the release date so other people can read about what they thought about a game. Sometimes people use reviews to influence their own decisions, and other times people read reviews to see if the reviewer agrees or disagrees with their own thoughts on a game.

Either way, the process of writing a game review is ... Read More

As a person who follows/writes/talks/obsesses about sports video games, it's not surprising to know that I am also in love with real sports. Tonight is a big night in the baseball world. While the MLB Draft is less popular than most of the other major drafts in the sports world, it only trails the NBA Draft in my book. In fact, it really reminds me of a scavenger hunt, and who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt?

If you follow the pre-draft coverage, then you probably know most of ... Read More

Red Dead Redemption is a fantastic game. The setting, the characters, the playground that is the Old West -- it's all superbly done. But I didn't want to write this blog entry just to gush about the game. I also wanted to look at the double life of John Marston.

In these Rockstar open-world games, the developers usually tie a strong narrative to a striking and unique world full of legal, illegal, funny, sinister and insane things to do. The characters in these games are generally ... Read More

While Be A GM mode was revealed a couple weeks back, I am now able to talk about a few more modes I got to check out while at EA Vancouver. A couple of these modes are long overdue (at least according to fans), while the other is a twist on a standard playoffs mode.

Battle for the Cup

This mode is a blown out NHL Finals that looks to add a little more intensity and bad blood to a standard seven-game series.

You can take part in a one, three, five or seven ... Read More

With The Bigs 2 releasing this week, I wanted to check in one more time and talk about the upcoming baseball title from Blue Castle Games. Obviously there is a demo out there for people to play, but I want to talk about a few things I got to check out while recently demoing a more complete version of the game.

Pick Up Mode

I went to Washington D.C. to get my hands on The Bigs 2 and spent most of my time playing the new Pick Up game mode, which is pretty much Blue Castle's ... Read More
