CNN is reporting that at least 11 people were shot at the GLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday. The group was participating in a videogame tournament for the new Madden 19 game. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that at least four people are dead. EA Sports was quick to respond to the news on their official Twitter account, first stating as the terrible news was breaking, “We are aware of an incident at a sanctioned Madden Championship Series competition in Jacksonville. We are working with authorities to gather facts at this stage.” Once the worst had been … Continue reading Mass Shooting Reported at Videogame Tournament
Electronic Arts kicked off the E3 press conferences with a rousing show that did everything it could to make up for the sins of the past year, including hosting a simultaneous three-day gaming festival where anyone could pick up and play the latest and greatest EA Games.
It’s that time again! Todd loads up Madden NFL and predicts the winner of Super Bowl LII. Will the Patriots once again win everything, or will the Eagles show that they are the team of the future? Grab some snacks and settle in for a real nail biter of a game.
Ever since the 08 version of the game, the FIFA series has improved every year. This time however, FIFA 15 takes a bit of a step back. While still a great game, it may be eclipsed by its predecessors.

With Europe in love with soccer, (or European Football as it’s also called) it would make sense that the topic of including women in the FIFA Games would come up at Gamescom, which is the largest European trade show dedicated to the games industry. However, EA went on record saying that at least for 2014, women will not be included. There is a bit of a disconnect between the US and the European market over the game.

Finally after a long, slow summer fraught with talks of baseball strikes, boring tennis matches where we already know the Williams sisters will win before the first serve, and a downward NASCAR season where Jeff Gordon finally won his first race of the year at Bristol, the return of football is upon us. Unlike last year when I had the heavily underrated XFL to hold me over, this year was a longer cross to bear.
