NHL commissioner Gary Bettman made some waves the other day when he mentioned that the NHL "is listening" to cities when it comes to possible expansion. While there are no formal plans, there certainly was a boastful tone to Bettman's bluster when he was cooing about how the NHL has the hammer, so to speak, and is enjoying some level of financial solvency.

As usual, the community creations section of the WWE game du jour is ripe with content from passionate creators, including characters, arenas, movesets and storylines. I'll try and highlight some of them from time to time, including this list of ten character creations that caught my eye.

Jey Uso & Jimmy Uso

Here is the full list of affected players:

EA is running a vote to decide which fighter will adorn the cover of the upcoming EA UFC alongside light-heavyweight champ Jon "Bones" Jones. It's not entirely surprising to see Jones on the cover, as the guy is (effectively) undefeated and has a veritable trophy case of high-level victims on his resume. It is a bit surprising to see a second athlete on the cover, though. I've speculated on the reasoning for cover votes ... Read More

I've always found it curious to see cash games as an option in NHL 14 (or other EA games). Nested away in the labyrinthine menus of the NHL games is the Virgin Gaming tournaments and cash games option, allowing you to play in free or pay tournaments for money. Like any poker site, the Virgin Gaming model allows you to play for free and gain a chance at winning some money, but there are also subscription options ... Read More

It's been an interesting NHL season so far, with the usual beasts like Pittsburgh, Boston and Chicago looking quite strong, but then there's the emergence of Colorado, Toronto and San Jose as forces to be reckoned with. San Jose is actually the least surprising, since their youth, size and skill are now finally paying dividends, and their former stars (read: Joe Thornton) can quietly ... Read More

2K has released the details on the DLC packages and season pass for WWE 2K14, and there's actually some good stuff to be had in the various downloadable offerings. The whole package can be had for $19.99, and if you're into some of the creation offerings in the franchise, there seem to be some good options in here for you.

I've got to say that it's a bit galling seeing moves being offered as a DLC pack, especially ... Read More

EA has released patch v1.01 for NHL 14, and it affects almost all aspects of the game. Some users on the EA forums are (rightfully) annoyed that certain gameplay issues weren't addressed, but at least EA did address a lot of bugs, glitches and balance problems that were present in the various modes on offer for NHL 14.

Here's the official release from EA.

All things considered, I thought THQ did a decent job stewarding the UFC brand for all of the years it held the license. The improvement in the franchise was notable with each iteration, even though the sales were on a slight decline at the same time. I remember hearing Dana White say how he wanted to keep supporting THQ because both them and the UFC had struck a deal when both companies were much younger, ... Read More

Besides the slight modifications to goalie equipment and an adjustment to the depth of the nets, the biggest change for this year's NHL season has been hybrid icing. The goal of the rule is to prevent heinous injuries to players, like the one that felled Joni Pitkanen of the Carolina Hurricanes. Pitkanen was racing down the ice after a potential icing when he crashed into the boards and broke his heel. This scenario has all sorts ... Read More
