Come July 1st, for those who helped with Gridiron Heroes Kickstarter campaign, the beta will be playable.

Gridiron Heroes was developed to address a void in today's social gaming scene. There's been nothing for the American football fan. Gridiron Heroes will change that, utilizing Facebook as the platform for the ultimate head-to-head competition ... Read More

It's somewhat upsetting knowing that when I countdown the top NFL games of this gaming generation, EA Sports' Madden NFL series is my only option. Clearly, Madden NFL has built up a reputation to cause the vocal minority to start a riot any chance they get.

But Madden NFL is our NFL. The Madden series, good or bad, log countless hours on our systems each season. We make awful trades and keep it a secret so we don't get ... Read More

The world of sports gaming is often very predictable. The latest Madden NFL feature is probably just a gimmick; the next NBA Live won't come out until 2016. Will either of those - or both - actually happen? Maybe, but if both statements prove to be true few will be surprised.

But when MLB 2K13 was announced in January, shock hit. The death of 2K's MLB franchise was something ... Read More

When the 20th Anniversary of Madden was released, most fans were excited. The inclusion of Madden NFL 93 was a sweet bonus. Head Coach 09 is still fantastic. Not much after that.

Madden NFL 09 is not remembered as one of the better Madden's. It's a shame, too, as the 20th Anniversary should have given consumers more. But here are a few ideas that would turn Madden NFL 14 into the true silver gift that ... Read More

Sports gaming is predictable, right?

If you predicted Madden NFL 13 to suck, NBA 2K13 and MLB The Show 12 to take a step back, and that arcade sports gaming would never return, you were likely applauded for these "rash" yet "true" statements.

Well, turns out, this past year was possibly the most unpredictable year in sports gaming since I can remember. But that doesn't leave me without worry. It's possible ... Read More

To some, Trent Richardson is a hero. Two-time NCAA champion, No. 3 overall NFL draft pick, the next great running back. He sees himself as a football player with everything to prove in the NFL before he can be considered a hero. But to Richardson, his heroes come from a different breed. They don't suit up every Sunday, they suit up every day.

His heroes are the men and women who serve this ... Read More

Three best friends. Check.

Solid young core. Check.

Best player outside LeBron. Check.

Sixth Man of the Year. Gone.

Wait, what?

With the trade that sent James Harden and a flurry of pointless bench warmers to the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City may have just found their flaw in the system every NBA ... Read More

We all knew it was coming, we just didn't have the proof.

As most of you should know by now, Kotaku has said the MLB 2K series is all but dead.

So where does 2K go now? They lost NHL 2K a few years ago, even after a solid outing. NFL 2K is long gone, and I won't even get into that debate. Top Spin is a great game, but tennis just isn't popular enough. The NBA 2K series has been both insanely popular ... Read More

Apologies for missing the past couple days, but I return today with glorious links. To start off, the first link on the list is possibly one of the funniest videos I've watched in a while. It's less than 2 minutes, so give it a whirl (Knicks' fans may not like it).

So here you go, seven links (with videos galore!) to get you through hump day:

First thing is first, go watch Newton's CAMpaign video.

The premise behind the video is just Cam talking himself up, having some fun and offering a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play him in Madden 12. But the part that intrigued me the most was at the 1:26 minute mark.

Newton challenges Calvin Johnson, the other finalist in the Madden cover vote, to a game of Madden 12. Newton wants to stream it live ... Read More

It's Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday.

Are you so excited?

QOTD: Would you draft a talented player (Janoris Jenkins) with a first-round pick, even if he has off-the-field issues?

Happy Birthday to the following OS'ers!

What's the one word all NCAA and Madden lovers have come to hate? If you answered "gimmick," then you've just won yourself bragging rights on the Internet. Nice work, dude.

Gimmicks are the little things that tease us into an overzealous rage of happy emotions; they get us pumped for the next big game. But in the past few years, gamers have been conditioned to understand what truly is a gimmick. Before, gimmicks used ... Read More

Sorry about missing the couple days ladies and gentlemen. I got swamped in my efforts of bringing back the Seattle Supersonics.

But yesterday was a big day for football news, both reality and gaming. The new NFL schedule has been released (with a questionable bye week for the Saints) and we saw our first footage of NCAA 13. Links are below, as well as other random forms of entertainment for you to enjoy!

People have been asking for it for a few years now, but it has never happened. But now, at the end of this console generation, it seems that EA Sports is borrowing a page from 2K Sports.

The announcement that Oklahoma State halfback Barry Sanders is joining Robert Griffin III on the cover is the final piece of this EA/2K puzzle.

Sanders won the Heisman in '88 -- in case you missed out, it's 2012. EA ... Read More
