The Noober Goobers (and formerly the Tommy Toe Hold YouTube page) have had a field day over the last year making these videos narrating hilarious glitches in EA UFC. It's the perfect combination of an over-the-top Joe Rogan voice and a really spot-on Mike Goldberg impersonation.

Of course, the star of the show is still EA UFC as it makes all this stuff possible. The first of these videos cropped up in June 2014, and really the videos are as funny now as they were then. The appeal of EA UFC is it's a solid game, and because of that, you can on some level just enjoy the goofiness of the glitches without screaming about how "THIS IS A SIGN THAT DEVELOPERS ARE SO LAZY NOW!"

So enjoy that video, and maybe check out a feature from our recent past where Glenn Wigmore talked about five things he would like to see in the next EA UFC -- whenever that does end up becoming a reality.

For a game that received such critical acclaim, there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding PES 2016 going into E3 2015. For one, there was Konami's mid-May announcement stating that going forward mobile gaming would be their future. While that statement was clarified in early-June several outlets sparked furious debates regarding the future of PES After some reassurances from Konami, the release of a teaser trailer before E3 2015 helped to erase doubt and raise expectations for PES 2016 as they debuted this year's tagline "Love the Past, Play the Future."

A few days prior to E3 2015, the team over at Konami released their first features list. With some time to digest this list -- and to witness the game in action -- let's revisit what we've seen thus far...

Players On The Rise

So, uh, how's everybody doing today? Feeling good? The holiday weekend treated you right? Cool. Cool.

Oh, yeah, what about this update? What was in it? Great question. I'll tell you, but don't be mad at me. You promise you won't be mad? Okay fine, here's the scoop:

There was nothing in it.

Okay, I mean some guys got boosted overall ratings this week, but nothing as far as I can tell changed with attributes. Any boosts that happened had everything to do with position changes. Basically, with the All-Star game a week out and the holiday weekend in play, this roster update was the bare minimum. And really, that's fine. Many people were expecting next to nothing fron this update with both those factors in play -- the assumption being some big changes will be in the next update instead -- so this should not come as a major shock to the system.

Still, the big risers were guys being changed from relievers back to starting pitchers (Collmenter, Cosart) or a guy being converted back to the middle infield (Logan Forsythe).

Tier Changes

(All thanks go to Daddy Leagues for these numbers! They've been so on the ball the last couple weeks I no longer have to sync up before and after roster update video clips to do all the changes myself.)
  • Justin Masterson went from Bronze to Silver
  • Jarred Cosart went from Bronze to Silver
  • Cesar Hernandez went from Common to Bronze
  • Josh Collmenter went from Bronze to Silver
Full List Of Changes

Nathan Eovaldi +4 boost in Overall rating (76 Overall)
Justin Masterson +5 (78)
Logan Forsythe +6 (77)
Rougned Odor +3 (77)
Wilmer Flores +3 (74)
Jarred Cosart +5 (79)
Tom Koehler +4 (76)
Cesar Hernandez +5 (72)
Jason Motte +1 (75)
Josh Collmenter +5 (80)
LaTroy Hawkins +2 (76)
Christian Bergman +5 (67)

NBA Live 16 had some new screenshots released just before the Holiday weekend, and the game admittedly continues to look better and better. In a new video (above), I talk about the game's improved looks and how it may finally be a viable alternative to NBA 2K.

But until we see gameplay, we can't get too far ahead of ourselves. However, there is the potential for an Online Team Play mode in NBA Live, and our guys were really high on Live coming out of E3.

What do you think? What does NBA Live 16 need to do to earn your business as a customer, and what would you like to see the game accomplish this year? Sound off in the comments!

The cover athlete for WWE 2K16 was scheduled to be revealed during RAW tonight, but it has been leaked out by various outlets. The official press release was posted on the WWE website shortly after the news hit the Internet.

Read the official press release below and check out the WWE 2K16 cover announcement video here.

"Gimme a Hell Yeah": 2K Announces Stone Cold Steve Austin as WWE 2K16 Cover Superstar

WWE Hall of Famer, film and television personality, producer and podcasting innovator set to inject Texas-sized attitude in flagship WWE video game franchise

2K today announced WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin® as the cover Superstar for WWE® 2K16, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE franchise. After setting the WWE Universe on fire during one of WWE’s most celebrated time periods – the “Attitude Era” – to his wealth of television, film and podcasting accomplishments, Austin has amassed worldwide admiration through his unequivocal presence both in and out of the WWE ring. WWE 2K16 is currently in development for Xbox One and Xbox 360, as well as the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems. The game is scheduled for release on October 27, 2015 in North America and October 30, 2015 internationally.

"I’ve had the privilege of working with 2K to support the WWE 2K franchise, and now I’m absolutely honored to serve as the WWE 2K16 cover Superstar,” said Stone Cold Steve Austin. “No disrespect to the previous and extremely deserving WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne ‘The Rock®’ Johnson and John Cena® – but it’s about time the franchise raised some hell with yours truly on the cover. I look forward to injecting a dose of ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ into this year’s game and overall campaign."


Austin is regarded by many as one of the most popular WWE Superstars to ever enter a WWE ring, holding 21 championships throughout his career and being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009. His relentless work ethic has also made him a significant mainstream fixture and pop-culture icon as an actor, producer and host in television, film and podcasting. Austin hosted the return of WWE’s reality competition series Tough Enough on USA Network in 2011, and since 2012 has hosted four seasons of Redneck Island on CMT. He also serves as the host of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge, which is currently in production for its third season on CMT. His film credits include appearances in several feature films, including The Longest Yard, The Condemned and The Expendables, while his no-holds-barred weekly podcast, The Steve Austin Show, regularly appears on the Top Podcasts list within the Sports & Recreation category on iTunes. He also hosts the Stone Cold Podcast, Live!, a monthly interview series on the award-winning WWE Network, where he has interviewed several special guests including Vince McMahon, Triple H and Paul Heyman. In addition, Austin is a brand ambassador for Kawasaki Motors Corp., USA.

“Stone Cold Steve Austin’s iconic style, unmistakable personality and worldwide reverence from the WWE Universe make him the ideal fit for WWE 2K16,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “Not only will Austin grace the video game’s cover, but he’s involved in shaping its creative direction. Through his numerous contributions, inclusion on the largest roster in franchise history and the game’s to-be-announced features, WWE 2K16 is certain to put everyone on notice.”

Developed collaboratively by Yuke’s and Visual Concepts, a 2K studio, WWE 2K16 is not yet rated by the ESRB. WWE 2K16 is currently scheduled for release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4™ and PS3™ on October 27, 2015 in North America and October 30, 2015 internationally.

Another week is coming to a close in Diamond Dynasty, and the big pack released this week was the June Topps 50 Player pack. It costs 12,000 Stubs, and it has not caused prices on the Marketplace to dip much at all -- presumably due to the high cost. Instead, it seems the Marketplace is slowly recovering from some record-low prices that cropped up last weekend when the last batch of special-edition packs were released.

As this is a holiday weekend, I'm not sure if the roster will be released Monday morning or not, but we'll assume for now it will be. Either way, fewer names are on this list than usual as honestly not a ton of players stuck out to me this week.

Ratings Boost Probability: High

-Zack Greinke - A lot of folks have been bugging me about adding Greinke for a couple weeks now, but I had held off as I thought there were some better elite pitchers this season. I had been pushing for a Chris Sale upgrade over Greinke, but Sale still has not gotten his boost. Regardless, Greinke now joins him as somebody who I think just clearly is pitching like one of the best pitchers in the majors.

-Taijuan Walker - It's really been a crazy turnaround for Walker after his dreadful start. He's got five wins in the last month to go with over a strikeout per inning and a WHIP under one.

-Mike Montgomery - Walkers' teammate has also been a really great story, and I think it's fair to say Mike Montgomery also deserves a lot of praise at this point.

-Carlos Correa - He's amazing. I don't need to put stats here, Carlos Correa is just amazing and needs to be at least a Silver.

-Buster Posey - On some level, I really doubt Posey gets a boost this week, but to me he's been the best hitter over the last month and so I have to put him here.

If you’re an owner of the either an Xbox One or PS4, particularly the PS4, then the racing landscape has proven to be somewhat barren up until recently. And if you are looking for a simulation-style title, then the choices have been even more limited. Forza 5 and Horizon have dropped on the Xbox, and Project Cars is now available for both systems, so the thirst for racing bliss has been somewhat filled, but there is always room for more. Starting this summer, and rolling into the fall, there are some intriguing titles that will hit the retail market, and a few that racing fans should definitely keep on their radar.

The best sports games aren't necessarily innovative. But they do, however, contain innovative features.

Take a look at our most recent "Greatest Sports Game Ever" poll, and it's easy to match the top finishers with a ground-breaking feature. MVP Baseball 2005: Hitter's Eye. NFL 2K5: First-Person Football. College Hoops 2K8: 6th Man Meter.

This isn't to say that all great games innovate or that all innovative games are great. There just seems to be an inherent connection between those games we view as quality titles and the ability to bring something new to the table.

NHL 16 continues to build on their authentic arenas and atmosphere with signature effects and well known props throughout the league. Check out a few examples in the images below.


Minnesota Wild - Xcel Energy Center

The Lighthouse in the Xcel Energy Center will blast a foghorn when the Wild score a goal and after a home ice victory.


Detroit Red Wings - Joe Louis Arena

The Legend of the Octopus in Detroit is one of the oldest and most iconic traditions in the sport of hockey. That’s why we had to get Al The Octopus looking just right.


Calgary Flames - Scotiabank Saddledome

During playoff games, the C of Red will be going nuts when the Calgary Flames take to the ice. To make the experience even more authentic, fire will blast from the Saddledome flamethrowers after every goal.


Washington Capitals - Verizon Center

Speaking of red, you’ll see a ton of it when you visit the Verizon Center during playoff time. Caps fans will #RockTheRed during the postseason as they cheer on their hometown Capitals.

NHL 16 arrives on September 15 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
