Nintendo’s future is getting bleaker and bleaker by the minute. DICE’s technical director Johan Andersson has tweeted that next-generation games running the studio’s Frostbite 3 engine, will not be making an appearance on the Wii U console.
“[Frostbite 3] has never been running on WiiU,” EA DICE’s technical director Johan Andersson posted on Twitter. “We did some tests with not too promising results with [Frostbite 2] & chose not to go down that path.”
As of right now, Electronic Arts — owns the studio DICE — has only confirmed one video game in 2013 using the Frostbite 3 engine. Unfortunately for Nintendo, it’s the publishers most anticipated game, which is Battlefield 4. (more…)
Technically speaking, the 2012 NFL season has yet to be determined, and EA has already announced Madden 14‘s release date, which is on August 27th, 2013. The news comes from the official website which already has a logo and is celebrating 25 years of Madden video-game football.
This is the only information that is available because underneath the logo, it just says “Madden 25 coming soon.” Which I guess means that more details are forthcoming. IGN is suggesting that because it reads “Madden 25 coming soon,” EA is planning on releasing Madden bi-yearly cycle, instead of the typical year-to-year pattern. (more…)
Last year, EA held an Internet poll on who should grace the cover of Madden ’12. The publisher made sure every team was represented with a player, though that hardly meant it was the team’s superstar. In fact many people, including myself, wondered why some of the players had a real opportunity of being a cover athlete.
Apparently, EA found the voting a success because not only are they repeating it once again, but they’re doubling the amount of players who fans can decide on. (more…)

For the last two-years, 2K has been giving away a million dollars to the person who pitched the first perfect game in their MLB 2K series.
If you don’t know what the astounding feat is, it’s when a pitcher faces the minimal number of batters, which is 27, and every batter makes an out. If it happens, the pitcher will forever be in baseball lore, accomplishing something that only 18-men have done before him.
Brain Kingrey of Louisiana did just that in the virtual world, and 2K award him a million dollars for become the first to do it in MLB 2K11. Congrats to him, but he’s lucky because I would have been the first, but I find MLB The Show a superior baseball game.
Watch the video, after the jump, of him getting his check, and his reaction because he had no clue that he had won. (more…)
One of the more popular games to come out with the Kinect‘s launch was Kinect Sports – though that’s not saying much — and now it is getting a sequel. Yes, Microsoft thinks the casual motion sports title warrants a brand new game, with new sports and more boringness.
Like most of the Kinect titles, Microsoft isn’t won’t go out of their way to market it the hardcore gamer. rather they’re betting on you wasting fifty bucks in hopes you can convince that girl you like videogames are fun. Don’t give in to their ploy. Plus that girl doesn’t like you.
Players will be able to play through a variety of sports, including baseball, football, golf, tennis and more. Of course, don’t expect these games to play like their real-life counterpart, instead be simpler version of them.
THQ has revealed specifics of what to expect when WWE SmackDown Vs. Raw 2011 is pre-ordered. Like other titles, where you reserve the game, is what you get. Here’s the scoop:
* Best Buy (or any retailer in Canada): Brett Hart playable character
* Toys R Us: Undertaker’s “Ministry of Darkness” gear
* Amazon.com: Three outfits for Randy Orton (T-shirt, suit and referee uniform)
* Walmart: “Tribute to the Troops” arena
I would probably pick the Best Buy option. Although, I wonder if it’s the Brett Hart of yesteryear, or the modern, fat, slow, old version of Brett Hart.
