A popular internet axiom states that “what has been seen cannot be unseen.” And so it is with Madden. If you’ve been following the media for Madden 15, you may have set some pretty high expectations. If you’ve played Madden 15 on either the PS4 or Xbox One, you may find that many of those expectations are (finally) met this year, as you can read in our official review.

So to step back and objectively look at Madden 15 on “last-gen” consoles can be tough. For whatever reasons, this version of the game lacks many of the new, innovative and fun additions touted all summer. Things that I consider literally game-changing -- like the ability to switch between cameras on the fly -- are nowhere to be found on older consoles.

If you only own a 360 or PS3, this may come as a disappointment. However, instead of bemoaning these features’ absences, let's look at what the game actually does on its own. Then you can decide if it warrants a purchase, or if you are safe simply upgrading Madden 25’s roster.

CVG has posted their WWE 2K15 hands-on impressions and really seemed to enjoy it. Look for it in stores on October 28th (October 31st Internationally) for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Quote:
Now being on the receiving end of an opponent's signature move, such as Cena's five knuckle shuffle (I know) leaves you in grave danger of immediate defeat. Wounded, knackered grapplers struggle back to a standing position, even using the ropes to help themselves up when appropriate. But equally, if you can reverse an opponent's signature or finisher, momentum swings back heavily in your direction.

As a result, the stakes are high like never before when either player tries to end the match with one big move - miss it, and you can instantly turn glorious victory into crushing defeat.

My opponent and I learn this in the most agonising, enthralling manner, as Attitude Adjustments are blocked and reversed into RKOs, and then back again, at least half a dozen times. At one point, Cena finally hit his 'AA' and all looks lost... only for me to kick out at a count of two and 99/100ths. We both leap out of our seats in such sweary astonishment that the event photographer hurries over, hoping for a repeat performance.

EA Sports has posted this NHL 15 video, teaching players how to deke and much more with the Superstar Skill Stick.

They go over quick stride dekes, drag dekes, protecting the puck, one touch dekes, loose puck dekes, 45 degree cuts and more.
  • Now, all the tools of an NHL superstar are in your hands.The revolutionary Skill Stick has evolved to give even more control to the player, featuring an intuitive right stick control scheme that is easy to use but also packed with depth.
  • The all-new Superstar Skill Stick allows for complete fluidity when stickhandling, giving incredible control with the right analog stick.
  • Use the Superstar Skill Stick with the right analog stick and True Performance Skating with the left to combine dekes and skating movement together. The left and right stick now act independently, allowing for more moves to embarrass the opposition.
  • Chain moves together to keep defenders guessing. Use a stride deke to move a defender one way then turn him inside-out by chaining it together with a windmill deke. In NHL 15, there are countless ways to get past defenders and creating scoring opportunities using theSuperstar Skill Stick.

Madden’s presentation has always been a spot where the franchise simply didn’t measure up against the competition. This lack of quality presentation seems to, at least partially, be the result of a disastrous start on the last generation of consoles where a TV-style presentation simply wasn’t even included in the game in the first edition.

This year, Madden finally arrived with a broadcast presentation which is much more believable to the eyes, unfortunately your ears will leave you wondering what went wrong.

We had our first glimpse of NBA Live 15 way back in April, then in June we found out the release date (October 7th) and read an open letter from Sean O’Brien, which promised a lot for NBA Live fans to be excited about. Here is a direct quote from it.

Quote:
We’ll start sharing gameplay details in July, and will continue to provide in-depth insight through August and September. During this time there will be plenty of content popping up here on the NBA LIVE website, as well as hands-on previews from your favorite sports and gaming outlets. We know we’ve got a lot to prove this year, and we’ve got a solid plan in place to provide you with all the details and take the first steps to making NBA LIVE 15 a game you’re excited to play.

Looking back at July, gameplay details were not revealed. In fact, the only real information that we had in the month of July was that a demo could come earlier than expected and they placed the @NBA Twitter handle on the basketball. Maybe the loss of Scott O'Gallaher sent them scrambling? Who knows, let's move on to August.

This month has been filled with screenshots of various arenas and a late Damian Lillard cover announcement with a few more screenshots of him sprinkled in. Not exactly the "in-depth insight" fans were expecting.

While there were some hands-on impressions in August from GameInformer and MMGN, as well as a podcast from our friends at NLSC, no other site has written anything else about the game.

So here we are, almost in September and we still don't know what to expect from the game. What modes are there? What gameplay changes have been made? What are they hiding from us?

NBA Live fans deserve better.

As the world of video games hectically migrates towards online gaming as its main focus, the sports genre is no different. Playing head-to-head was once the acceptable norm, but oh how the landscape has changed over the last 5 years. Now sports gamers want and expect the full game experience online, and in many cases, even more.

With EA’s latest iteration of its NFL franchise, Madden 15, dropping this week, fans of the series are hoping that the polarizing developer has delivered just that - a full online experience.

EA Sports and the Madden NFL 15 team have fixed the online CFM issue many gamers were having. Specifically, the user vs. user games that were not being registered.

The team is still looking into the simmed stats issue. It's good to see they are aware.

EA Sports has released two NHL 15 videos featuring cover athlete Patrice Bergeron. Post your thoughts!

Video #1
Quote:
Sometimes something is so good, it rocks you to your emotional core. Just ask Patrice Bergeron - the man's never written a poem in his life, let alone performed one, but after playing NHL 15, he really didn't have a choice.

Video #2
Quote:
When Brad Marchand got his hands on NHL 15, his heart sang out. Then his voice sang out. Then he picked up a guitar and went right to an open mic night. Maybe he didn't sing it super perfectly, but still, it came from the heart. And that's what this game does, it gets you all twisted up.
