Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Best Sports Game 2013

Posted on Monday, December 16 @ 10:16:41 Eastern by Devin_Charles

NHL 14 – Best Sports Game 2013

Platform(s): PS3, Xbox 360
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: EA Canada
 
For this year's best in sports titles, the winner has shown it doesn't necessarily matter how much popularity the actual sport gains. Even year to year sales play little role. One year could mean a bad-mouthing around town, just for the next to be a chariot ride to the king's castle. With the usual suspects on this 2013 nominated list, it's been an open and interesting competition with every release.

The runners up include Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, MLB 13: The Show, and NBA 2K14. It's partially surprising 2K didn’t come out on top. In terms of giving fans what they wantin short that's exactly what they did—it had playable features, game play/style, and total presentation. With NBA Live 14 arriving to the year's end "best of" party late, it received no consideration in the award, though it wouldn't have mattered any.

But as this year's winner, NHL 14 has shown its resiliency. NHL 12 was probably one of the best sports games to be released in recent years but then the following year took a major step back... which brings us to the present. There was a simple trick EA used to bring its hockey franchise back to glory: violence. With their improved collision system and all new fight features, '14 couldn't be better. Solid game all-around; hence, why it's this year's best.
