Consider this your one-stop shop for a look at all PGA Tour 2K21 clothing and accessories. Prince put this together to showcase all the brand and gear that will be at your disposal should you pick up the latest golf game from HB Studios.

You can now download the Ultimate World Series roster from Brian Mazique in the roster vault of MLB The Show 20. He basically created the “best” World Series roster for every MLB team. He used CAPs from BieBig, Son of Motown, BlaqMagiq, DrSublime and created some of his own. He did the ratings based on a statistical model he crafted for this roster.

I spent a lot of time in part one, two and three of my NHL 21 wishlists discussing everything but gameplay. I did that because I wanted to focus solely on that component of the series in the final part of this NHL 21 gameplay wishlist series. It’s also because this sort of article fits right in with playoff hockey. Beyond that, I just have some continued bones to pick with the gameplay and I didn’t want anything else to be a distraction when talking about it for a wishlist article.

I think EA might have set itself up for a little bit of backlash by calling this a reveal trailer. Many who have the opportunity to view this trailer will end up feeling more disappointed than satisfied. This reveal would have perhaps been more well received if it were appropriately called “the cover athlete reveal trailer” or something along those lines. Actual NHL 21 gameplay was scarce — albeit we did get some reveals of new gameplay touches — which is where this basic critique comes from. All that being said, it was a very well done trailer from a cinematic standpoint.

If you haven’t yet seen it, the NBA 2K21 MyTeam Courtside Report was released last week, and it gives us a pretty good overview of the MyTeam changes. However, there are definitely some details missing and questions to be answered. In this case, I want to talk about the NBA 2K21 MyTeam multiplayer questions that remain since I already talked about offline modes (and my hopes and dreams) before the blog was released.

In Part 1 of this article, I looked at the 11 guys who could have been on the cover of Madden in the first decade of this millennium. Here I look at a handful of other guys who had the recognition and performance to be on the cover of the Madden games since 2010 in our what-if Madden cover universe.

OS folks have already been sharing their impressions of the demo and they will continue to do so. But as it relates to the staff, what are your NBA 2K21 demo impressions at this point?

What’s interesting is that within Project Cars 3 I noticed a blending of other titles that I have raced over the years, and you can feel the influence of those games in PC3. Games like Gran Turismo, both Forza and Forza Horizon, and the the old TOCA series from the PlayStation 2 and Xbox days really linger here. Obviously, there is still a bit of carryover from the two previous versions of the Project Cars series, but it’s not as obvious as you would think.

Shortly after EA took heat for not addressing critical issues with Classic Franchise mode, the Madden development team announced a new game mode, The Yard. This raised eyebrows for the plethora of people pleading for updates to franchise mode, but The Yard does not deserve to be cast aside simply due to general anger about the state of another mode. It still deserves its own fair shake, and that’s why I decided to just focus on The Yard in Madden 21.

With NBA 2K21 and its launch just around the corner, I had the chance to attend a Zoom NBA 2K21 Q&A on Wednesday (August 26) with some of the NBA 2K21 development team. We heard from Mike Wang, Erick Boenisch, Ben Bishop and Chien Yu regarding various modes in the game. Let me take you through everything discussed during the call.

This Madden 21 review was always going to be a little tricky to me. This year’s release is a bit different as fans, players and developers weren’t sure if there was even going to be an NFL season — and technically we still are not sure. Add in the complications of having to work remotely because of a global pandemic for the development of any game — let alone a high-profile AAA title like Madden — and it’s easy to say things are certainly abnormal this cycle.
