This week the US lost to Sweden in womenís soccer, Mexico is all but eliminated from Copa America, and the Seattle Storm are the defending champions of the WNBA. These are all things that I only know because American sports have hit a new all time low. We are now back in a place where baseball is our rock that we cling to for sporting entertainment, and thatís just not a fun place to be.

Itís been said countless times that what when players go on strike or in this case when owners ... Read More

Speed Kills

In football they say that speed kills, and right now itís speed that is killing the Oakland Raiders. Unfortunately for the franchise Al Davis seems to be too slow to realize that everyone in the NFL is fast and some things are more important than how fast someone can run the 40.

The Raiders have been known for surprising people with their first round picks, but this year they have outdone even themselves. By picking Darrius Heyward-Bey with Michael Crabtree ... Read More

Sitting on my couch enjoying the first full weekend of baseball this season, I got a bit of an itch for a little baseball gaming. However the dilemma in this for me is the fact that I donít own a baseball game. Sure I could go out and purchase one, but then again with the 360 being my only console Iíve only got one option, MLB 2k9. Now baseball is not at the top of my list of favorite sports, so generally when I get the initial itch I ignore it itíll go away. Avoidance has worked thus far, and Iím ... Read More

Is it just me, or is franchise mode a game mode for the young? I remember I use to love playing franchise mode, ever year I would look forward to taking the Raiders multiple seasons deep, building and developing my team. But over the last few years it seems that I enjoy playing my franchise mode in Madden less and less.

After reading that franchise blog about Madden, I suppose I should be stoked about a new upgrade to the Madden series and be excited about getting back into the franchise ... Read More

All of the debate I keep seeing over how great NFL 2k5 was and how horrible the Madden series is made me decide it was time to pop 2k5 in and take a stroll down memory lane. Here are some of the things I found notable in my experience.

The Good
PRESENTATION: Obviously this was something I still remembered was much better than the current football games, but playing it just reminded me of how amazing it was. NFL 2k5 really had seemingly come as close to presentation perfection ... Read More

Ever since the Super Bowl ended this year I cannot stop thinking about how overrated winning the Super Bowl is. I know that in sports the emphasis is always placed on winning championships, but I think in the NFL there is far too much emphasis placed on the Super Bowl win. Placing all the importance on the post season tournament isnít going to give you the best team when there is a one and done format like the NFL.

Because of the tournament, one and done system, winning the Super ... Read More

After cruising through the Madden forums this evening on OS I can't help but notice how much hatred there is for the game. There are definitely many out there that make constructive criticism, and others wish they could see improvements in areas that would equal other titles, but for many it just seems to be all about how Madden is an inferior game to other titles of the past.

I too have enjoyed past titles, and hated to see them disappear, or rather be beaten out of existence by ... Read More

I continue to find myself impressed with the great improvements to this years Madden gameplay. Unfortunately the franchise mode Iíve just found to be lacking any sort of excitement to keep me going. Once I reached the end of my season Iíve been looking for other ways to enjoy the gameplay. Unfortunately online hasnít been an option for me lately, which led me to discovering the Madden Moments.

I think that the Madden Moments have actually been a quite underrated gameplay mode in ... Read More

Itís great to see that EA has finally decided that the calendar year is more than the start of the NFL season, and the months leading up to Christmas. Releasing Tiger Woods 10 & Grand Slam Tennis in mid-June seems like a genius move to me. Iíve always thought that EAís release schedule is bit silly, releasing games in what seems like weekly during the fall. Iíve stood back and looked in awe marveling as gamers with seemingly bottomless wallets stepped up to buy all these new titles that are piled ... Read More

At Operation Sports the motto for most gamers has always seemed to be realism above all else. Iíd say that Iíve always put myself into that same group, a sports gamer searching for a game that gives as authentic a sporting experience as possible, but now Iím not so sure.

This week the weather here in Phoenix has been beautiful and it got me in the mood for some golf, so I popped in Tiger Woods 08 (I know, how retro of me, but I donít have 09). It had been a while since Iíd played ... Read More
