It’s Super Bowl Sunday this weekend. Seattle has a chance to become the first back-to-back champions since 2003-04. And the craziest part is that the last team to do so is the Seahawks’ opponent: the Tom Brady-led Patriots. You can bet your bottom dollar that Brady doesn’t want to lose that. Fire up your console and strut your stuff with the Patriots and Seahawks.
Seattle, in Madden, is considered a powerhouse. Marshawn Lynch is, well, a beast, and the defense definitely received that little extra “push” from the developers. The one guy that matters most, though, is Russell Wilson. Wilson is a solid quarterback, but he also gets the most help of any signal caller in the NFL (i.e. Lynch, defense). Wilson is solid because of his improvisational skills; ranked on a prototypical quarterback he isn’t near the top. But in Madden, Wilson is an absolute monster. He has the speed, and also the ratings of a good quarterback. You can’t rate improv in Madden, so Wilson reaps the ratings benefit. Seattle is a good Madden team.
New England is a different story. Their leading rusher didn’t even crack 500 yards this season. Should be good news for an average rush defense, right? Wrong.
Legarrette Blount has played well, and is one of the stronger backs in Madden. You could easily start setting the tone early with a few six yard runs. It’s no secret that Brady never gets a legitimate no. 1 receiver, and it really shows in Madden in an unfortunate light. Gronk can’t be your only target. The defense isn’t bad, but the secondary is it’s strong suit matching up against some not-so-awesome pass catchers. When it comes down to it, New England is an average Madden team.
I clobbered New England with 143 rushing yards from Lynch, 37-14. Afterwards, I edged Seattle 20-18 after the Seahawks’ Stephen Hauschka missed two field goals in the game.
Share results on how each game played out, and let others know what you did to stop the other.
If you couldn't attend last weekend's PAX South convention, here is your chance to try out one of the new PC sports games that was shown in San Antonio.
A post-PAX build of Super Slam Dunk Touchdown is now up for download on developer Tipping Goat's website.
The current build offers five different athlete types (soccer, hockey, basketball, football, and roller derby), which all sport unique skills and varied playing styles. Your team's objective is to shoot, kick, or toss the ball into one of the three target goals.
A low shot past the goalkeeper and into the soccer net yields three points. A field goal between the raised uprights registers four points. And a slam dunk through the high-up basketball hoop scores five points.
The game is best-played with four to six human players, but it can also be played solo, against the AI.
Super Slam Dunk Touchdown hopes to eventually make it onto STEAM and unspecified home consoles sometime in 2015.
A few more Project CARS hands-on previews have been posted. Check them out, at the following links.
Quote:Firstly, it's worth mentioning that Slightly Mad Studios have a track-record (no pun intended) of producing great helmet cams. Need For Speed: Shift is famous for it. But it's also worth mentioning that the game has been designed with the aim of recreating the experience of driving racing cars in extreme authenticity.
Quote:The real magic of this game is its dynamic environment system. The game has settings that can change the weather randomly or by design, everything from clear days to rain and thunderstorms. The date and time is also customizable with an option to speed up the progression of time so that you can literally experience four seasons in one day… One full day, that is, with night included. You can also historically set the date and time of a race so that it takes historic weather data to produce what was actually happening at the time. June 3rd 1984 at Cote d’Azur would certainly be one of my recommendations.

Quote:Where games like Forza and Gran Turismo let you off with sloppy driving and being aggressive with the controls, Project Cars punishes you. Go off line, hit the marbles and you'll be off into an unforgiving gravel trap; but calm down, be gentle and progressive with your steering, braking and accelerating, and Project Cars rewards you. It's an incredibly steep learning curve - especially when the career mode doesn't force you to build up gradually to the faster cars - but one which keen motorsport fans will appreciate.

2K Sports has just updated the NBA All-Star uniforms in NBA 2K15. They were included in today's roster update, which updated the rosters for both teams.
Unfortunately, it doesn't have the first name above the numbers, like it should, but it does have the last name under the numbers.
If you recall, the Christmas uniforms also had an issue with player names. They were supposed to display the first name on the back of the jerseys, but only the last name was shown in the game.
For those that are curious, 2K also updated the court for the upcoming NBA All-Star game, check out the image below.
NBA 2K15 roster updates arrive much more frequently this year. Whenever one is available, Mike Stauffer (bedwardsroy19) will provide us with the details.
Check out the changes for this mornings roster update below.
NOTE: If you have a roster update request, please post it in this thread (comments will be locked for individual roster updates from now on). The requests in this thread, should be exclusively in reference to inaccuracies in specific jersey team colors, player accessories, shoes, jersey numbers, player information, rotations, contracts, and missing players. The thread is NOT meant to discuss player attributes/tendencies/badges/art changes.
Here are the notes for today’s update:
The NBA All-Star team rosters have been updated. The news on DeMarcus Cousins replacing the injured Kobe Bryant came too late, but will be updated tomorrow.

Check out the latest screenshots and video clips from RIDE, featuring the Ducati on Imola and Aprilia on Sierra Nevada.
RIDE is scheduled to release worldwide on March 20th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows PC, Steam, PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4.
Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson established himself as one of the best Madden NFL players in the NFL, taking home the trophy in Madden Bowl XXI on Thursday night in Scottsdale. Peterson triumphed over Washington Redskins Running Back Alfred Morris, Philadelphia Eagles Running Back LeSean McCoy and San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick to claim the title.
This year the competitors took the field in Madden Ultimate Team, a special mode within Madden NFL 15 that allows players to create the most dominant lineup possible comprised of both modern NFL stars and the all-time greats of the game. Peterson utilized a ferocious backfield combo of Aaron Rodgers and Bo Sanders to keep his opponents off-balance and dominate while on offense. Peterson dispatched Alfred Morris in the first round, but faced reigning Madden Bowl Champion LeSean McCoy in the finals.
After Peterson’s team took a knee to run out the clock it was the Cardinals’ cornerback hoisting the Madden Bowl trophy for the loyal, local fans who braved rainy conditions to see their hometown hero compete.
For the first time ever, the tournament was streamed live on Twitch, and fans can now jump into Ultimate Team in Madden NFL 15 and play against the competitors’ teams in special Solo Challenges for a limited time.
IGN has posted 10 minutes of gameplay footage from Project CARS. It features a California highway in a BMW M3 with Creative Director, Andy Tudor.
Shady has checked in again with his latest NBA 2K15 video montage. This one showcases the Derrick Rose game winning shot against the Golden St. Warriors, which happened earlier this week.
Rose didn't shoot very well from the floor, going 13 of 33 in the game with 11 turnovers, but he made the clutch basket when it mattered most. The win at Oracle also ended the Warriors 19-game winning streak at Oracle Arena.
For those of you looking for throwback jerseys at The Park in NBA 2K15, 2K Sports has multiple throwbacks for sale in the NBA Store for 5,000 VC each. These include throwbacks for Patrick Ewing, Dikembe Mutombo, Gary Payton, "The Big O" Oscar Robertson and Run TMC's Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin.
These will be on sale until just before midnight (PST) tonight.
It may be the end of January – a typically slow time in the sports game world – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t all sorts of interesting things happening. This week’s episode of the Press Row Podcast is a winter potpourri, featuring a number of special guests talking about their areas of expertise. Up first, PastaPadre’s Bryan Wiedey (a huge Seahawks fan) and MaddenTips’ Stephen Gibbons (a big Pats supporter) join host Rich Grisham to preview the Super Bowl. Next, Operation Sports’ own hockey expert Glenn Wigmore hops on to revisit NHL 15, checking in on its current state and how it has improved since launch. After that, our good friend Greg Sewart from Generation 16 and the Player One Podcast chats about the big shift in the NASCAR game license and what it means to racing fans. Lastly, Out of the Park Baseball’s Brad Cook discusses the huge positive implications for his game now that it has acquired the long-desired MLB license.

A user on Steam, by the name of lima, has posted this tutorial on how to get around the shoe glitch in NBA 2K15.
If you would rather watch a video explaining the process, check out this video from Nykefaller.
If you aren't interested in the workaround, 2K is offering refunds. It doesn't look like a patch is coming to fix the issue, but Ronnie did leave the door open.
