PWX is back on Kickstarter and this time it's not only met but exceeded its goals.
Which teams will have the most stacked lineups when the game launches near opening day?
A look at each point of emphasis and what it does for you.
Even more details released by EA Sports on their upcoming 360/PS3 release of FIFA World Cup 2014 Brazil.
Last week, I jokingly commented on MLB 14: The Show's fact sheet, which included the addition of "left-handed infielders." To me, this seemed not only an odd thing to add, but an odd thing to publicize.
If you are unfamiliar with why left-handed infielders are so rare, it has to do with fielding and throwing runners out. Lefties field with their right hand, but need to throw to the left (first base) to get the out. This leads to an awkward transition, bad throws, and extra time for the runner. Think about the throw a right-handed first basemen needs to make on a 3-6-3 double play, or a right-handed quarterback who rolls to the left for similar throws.

In case you missed it, we have this closed beta Q&A. Robert has also uploaded three gameplay videos in the thread, which we've embedded below.
It's baseball season.
Well sort of. Spring training has begun and games are being played, and MLB 14 The Show is just a few weeks away from launching. What do you look forward to most when you fire up the game for the first time?
Are you more interested in pitching? Hitting? Being an ultimate strategist? Is it none of the above, and are you a fielding type of person? Let us know by voting in the poll to your right on the frontpage and above this post in the forums. Also be sure to let us know what your goal is this year for The Show.
Personally, I'd love to try to pull a triple play this year -- try being the key word. Maybe I'll be like this guy and see an inside the park home run and triple play in the same game?
The 2013 college football season has come to an end, as the Florida State Seminoles have been crowned National Champions, but there is still plenty of college football to discuss on Dual Threat!

Drab T-Shirt, and Robert Bode, producers at 106.7 The Fan in DC, and they discuss everything college football related with an opinionated and fast-paced show!
In the twenty-seventh episode of Dual Threat: Season 2, Drab and Bode discuss the combine performances of Johnny Manziel and Jadeveon Clowney, the effect Groupthink has on the NFL Draft, college football rankings, social media, etc. Plus, why the new "Super 16" college football poll is so stupid, a discussion as to why the SEC is such a football powerhouse but a basketball weakling, a quick look at Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema's latest bonehead comments, Baylor looking to introduce "Sailgating" and much, much more!

Sure, the Heat won an interesting matchup with the Knicks last night -- but who wants to talk about "X"s and "O"s? Did you see that masked man?
Zorro? The Dark Knight? Whatever comparisons you make, the man behind the mask scored 31-points in his first game back since suffering a broken nose. When asked about his choice of the all-black mask, LeBron stated he picked it because it went with his uniform.
In a league obsessed with fashion, both good and bad (short sleeve jerseys?) I can't imagine the league just letting this one go. Surely there will be authentic replica "King James" jerseys and black mask combo packages for sale on NBA.com in the near future, right? And while we're at it, we can't keep the same nickname jersey for LeBron. If you're going to dawn a black mask and drop thirty points on an opponent, let's get a little more creative.
Sound Off: What nickname best fits LeBron while wearing his black carbon-fiber mask?
- Ryan Braun homered in his first Spring Training at-bat -- the first live action he's seen since his 2013 suspension for PED use.
- Sports can be emotion stirring, but I don't think I want to be in the same room as this guy when his team loses. [Image]

The 74th episode of the Press Row Podcast is an in-depth and at times fascinating look into the state of the NBA Live franchise as it stands today. Host Rich Grisham sits down with the Executive Producer of NBA Live Sean O’Brien to examine the game’s launch, its post-release support, how the team has reacted to the criticism from the gaming press and the Live community, how they’re balancing supporting NBA Live 14 against NBA Live 15, and where the team goes from here.
There aren’t a lot of people who would have this kind of conversation, so we thank Sean for his participation. No one but Operation Sports and the Press Row Podcast will deliver a show like this. Enjoy!

Want to know how impressive Wichita State's 30-0 season is? Just look on ESPN.com for the story.
Can't find it yet? Keep looking -- no, not on the front page, check the NCAA Basketball sub-page. Ah there it is! All the way down as the tenth story of the day.
One-and-a-half days removed from making history, the No. 2 Shockers are just an afterthought -- much like they've been this entire season. Sure they play in the MVC which happens to be minus the Doug McDermott Show at Creighton this year, but did we forget this is the same team that reached the Final Four last year? It's one thing to get the "Boise State" treatment in college football, but when you back up a huge run with regular-season perfection (still one game to go!), what more does it take to be No. 1?
Sound Off: Should Wichita State be ranked No. 1?

In a report recently filed by Deadspin, it appears the NCAA came close to allowing real player names in the NCAA Football video game series, with EA agreeing to include academic features and scores within the game (such as the APR). Be sure to read the full report which includes some interesting double standards by the NCAA.
Do you think we'll see an NCAA Football game on this new generation of consoles?
As states last week, the PES 2014 February data pack is available now for 360 and PS3 (soon for PC).
The February free Data Pack adds a wide range of new elements to the game. All transfers made during the 2014 January window will be implemented, while a host of new kits, ball and boot styles have also been added.
As part of KONAMI's continued pledge to refine and bolster its acclaimed simulations content, the new download adds a number of new kits to the game. PES 2014 pays tribute to a selection of great classic teams including replica kits of the AC Milan side of 1899, the 1982/83 Roma side, Benfica's all-conquering 1961/62 XI and Manchester United's treble-winning 1998/99 strip. Contemporary teams have also been updated, with the new French, German and Spanish nationals strip updated, alongside those of AS Roma, FC Porto, Olympiakos and Club Atlético All Boys.
The heritage of South American football is also celebrated with classic strips for Santos FC (1968), Colo-Colo (1992), São Paulo(1993), Boca Juniors (1997), Racing Club Avellaneda (1967) and the 1996 Universidad De Chile side. Third kits for the current Manchester United, Juventus and Inter Milan sides have also been introduced.In total, 13 new kits have been added, and 43 updated.
New boots from the world's leading manufacturers have also been recreated, including Nike's Tiempo V and Hypervenom Phantom styles, Puma's evoSPEED 1.2s and evoPOWER 1s, and the Predator LZ TRX FGs and F50 adizero TRX from adidas. 16 new boots have been added in total, as have five new ball styles, including the official Final Lisbon ball as seen in the UEFA Champions League knock-out stages, and the adidas argentum, the official ball of the Argentine leagues.
With the Olympics over, the NHL swings back into its home stretch, and several teams are going to be in the market for some hired guns. There are quite a few names in the mix this year, even with the fact that the trade deadline isn't quite the circus it used to be 5-10 years ago. It's always interesting seeing which unrestricted free agents (UFAs) and restricted free agents (RFAs) are moved, poached, bought or bargained for, so here's a list of ten players that could find themselves wearing a different jersey on March 5.

Last week, Tony Hawk revealed on his SiriusXM Demolition Radio show, they were developing a new game. No other details were released.
Bloomberg recently interviewed him on Taking Stock with Pimm Fox. Tony mentioned the game would be exclusive to mobile devices.

MyCareer mode in NBA 2K14 was a cool, but flawed experience.
I don’t know about you, but having to sit through nearly an hour of cutscenes at the beginning of the mode with no option to skip really ruined the experience for me from the get go. From there, the linear nature of the storytelling was more like holding your hand through a pre-designed NBA-experience moreso than letting you live your own story both on and off the court.
To me, MyCareer represented the best of intentions with some paltry execution.
