NHL 16 | Review

Posted on December 12, 2015 by Kenny Keelan

If you know me well at all, you should know that there’s one thing other than gaming that’s near and dear to my heart: hockey and the Detroit Red Wings, equally. I’ve been a fan nearly as long as I’ve been alive and when you give me the chance to mix hockey and video games, I am more than happy to participate. Now, I liked it a little more during the 16-bit and 32-bit generations when there was a great deal more competition when it came to hockey video games, but things have gotten so refined now that it would be hard to do things so differently without being radically different and we all know how people react to that kind of change. NHL 16 is another step in a long history of hockey games from Electronic Arts that stretches all the way back to 1994 and even further back, depending on who you ask. While you have a game that feels extremely refined and awesome, you also have a game franchise that feels like it’s bordering on stagnancy.

“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey Announced as UFC 2 Cover Model

Posted on November 14, 2015 by Kenny Keelan

In case you haven’t heard of Ronda Rousey for some reason, I’ll give you a little bit of a catch up as to who she is: she’s currently undefeated in the UFC and carries the Bantamweight Women’s Championship. She is extremely cocky but she backs every word she says up with knowledge and confidence. She gained a lot of support in the geek community for stating her love for things such as PokémonWorld of Warcraft, and Dragonball Z – while it’s cool she’s into those things, that’s pretty entry level stuff – and her otherwise attractiveness, likability, and trash talk have gained her quite the reputation among fighters in an otherwise low key division of the hugely popular UFC genre of fighting.

If that’s a bit much for you, a great example of why she’s on the cover is because most of her fights go down like this:


So, you know, there’s that.


Electronic Arts Details E3 2015 Lineup

Posted on June 14, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Electronic Arts have revealed their full E3 line-up (not including unannounced titles) that will be playable on the show floor.  Yearly releases like FIFA, NHL, PGA Tour and Need for Speed are ready to be played by the gaming press, VIP and industry insiders. Surprisingly EA will also have a playable demo of Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst on the floor as well – here’s hoping that they show at least a few sections of the E3 demo during their press conference.

Speaking of EA’s E3 press conference it will be taking place at 1PM PST tomorrow and if you’re not in Los Angeles you can enjoy the entire conference from your office / couch or smartphone by heading over to their official website.

NHL 14 | Review

Posted on September 11, 2013 by Jason Nason

Aside from demos, I haven’t played a full edition of EA’s NHL series since way back in NHL 07. That’s a long time to be away, though I have played that game an awful lot. The newest game in the series, aptly titled NHL 14, continues on with everything that I thought was great in that game and builds upon it to make an even greater game.

Included in NHL 14 are a few new modes as well as the franchise’s continual advancement of existing features.

One of the new modes is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of NHL ’94, which was released twenty years ago for the SNES and Sega Genesis. NHL ’94 Anniversary Mode is a new way to get into old-school NHL action.

FIFA 14 Coming to Wii?

Posted on August 17, 2013 by Jason Nason

EA Sports is bringing the next FIFA game to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next month (plus the Xbox One and PS4 later in the year) but there is no release pending for Nintendo consoles. Or maybe there is?

While there is no mention of the game for Nintendo’s comsoles on EA’s website the game has been rated by the ESRB. FIFA 14 for the Nintendo Wii popped up on the ESRB website today. The game was also given a rating today for PS2, PSP and PS Vita. Could EA Sports be releasing the game on the Wii?

A press release from EA Sports back in June of this year did have mention of the game being released for both the Wii and 3DS, though not for Nintendo’s Wii U console.

CFL Game in the Works but Won’t Be Released

Posted on September 23, 2012 by Les Major

According to a recent report by Kotaku, and later picked up by Yahoo! Sports, a game based on the Canadian Football League is not only in the works but could be released anytime. Electronic Arts however has no intention of releasing the game.

According to the report in June of 2012 “some developers built a working CFL game internally, with uniforms and helmets skinned using NCAA Football’s TeamBuilder tools.”Read More
