One of the more popular theories for people in our community is that if sports games only could become every over year titles (or more) they’d be better.
Better in every way. From quality, to features, and more.

There are a litany of reasons why this isn’t the case, the first and foremost being that economically it doesn’t work for game publishers at all — the second being that games improve quite a bit from NBA 2K13 to NBA 2K15 as is. The problem is, we see it all happen slowly and incrementally before our eyes and tend to not appreciate what is steady evolutionary progress of sports game features which moves faster than you'd realize.

We all love speculation, so let's speculate into a world without exclusivity.

In our alternative universe theory, EA and the NFL never partnered up exclusively and instead -- we had two NFL games going into the new generation of sports games in 2005.

How would have the market had been different? Was there ultimately room for two games -- or would we be at one NFL game like every other sport not named the NBA or Soccer right now? Would NFL 2K have thrived? Would EA have ultimately taken the ESPN license away from 2K?

So many possibilities, let's hear your speculation...

The sports game landscape may have gotten smaller in the past few years, but the team at HB Studios saw an opportunity where others saw risk.

The 94th edition of the Press Row Podcast features an extended 1-on-1 discussion between host Richard Grisham (@richgrisham) and The Golf Club Executive Producer Peter Garcin (@rawktron); the two discuss a host of issues, including key game design decisions, how the team navigated and processed the Early Access feedback, going through the console submission process, and the freedom and anxiety that comes from attempting to self-publish a sports game in today’s complex landscape. It’s an open, honest conversation that provides a unique look at how The Golf Club is coming together in its stretch run.

Once a year, every baseball fan gets to live out their wildest dreams.

The trade deadline is arguably the most exciting time of the season in the MLB, with rumors flying around like drunken pigeons. There's not really a direction to anything, and 95 percent of all trade talk winds up being whispers heard in the wind, shouted out by reporters and the most hardcore of fans on social media and message boards. It is exhausting, sure -- but also exhilarating. In sports, there's really nothing else quite like it.

So for all of you baseball fans who know exactly what I'm talking about, here are ten potential trades that could rock the very foundation of your MLB: The Show franchises:
