FIFA 15 Highlights The Emotional Intelligence Of Footballers

There's a point in the life cycle of any EA Sports series where, pressured by the need for new yearly features, the game dashes away from the reality of its simulated sport and straight into fantasy. In the old Tiger Woods golf games, that was being struck by lightning to charge up supershots. In FIFA 15, it's positing a world in which footballers have something…

FIFA 15 Trailer Highlights “Visible Breathing”, “Visible Mud”

There's little I like more than chatting with my co-workers about videogames. Why, it was just earlier today that Adam turned to me and asked, "Hey Graham, what's your favourite gameplay feature?" I responded with something typically pithy, remarking that "My favourite gameplay features is the incredible visuals. For example the whole new level of visuals which bring fully realised arenas with Living Pitches to…

FIFA 15 Gets E3 2014 Trailer, Is Balls

FIFA 15 is a game that I will definitely play. The latest entry in EA's endless foot-to-ball series will bring the PC version in-line with the next-gen console releases, finally giving us the new physics and graphics engine that console players received last year. It'll also bring one of E3's most hyperbolic trailers, which is embedded below alongside a thousand whiny complaints from me.

And Another: FIFA 15’s ‘Next Gen’ Engine Coming To PC

For a long time, FIFA games on PC lagged behind their console counter-parts. Then FIFA 11 came out and brought the joy of parity; the PC version was finally the same as the 360 and PS3 releases, with the maximum number of realistic brick falls, awkward tumbling hugs and imprecise auto-passes that the series could muster. Unfortunately FIFA 14 eventually followed and the world was…

As Open As Your Goal, Mate: FIFA World Open Beta

Association football is, in many ways, the greatest real-world PC game. It's a squad-based real-time tactical co-op/competitive multiplayer game with over 150 years of lore and canon to obsess over. It has squillions of characters, each with their own stats, backstory, and internal lives right down to daily routines. The game is still updated, but some rules changes are controversial, and other rules are still…

It’s All Over: FIFA Manager 14 Is The Last In The Series

Football is a game of two halves, and so is this post. Snarky FC kicks off.EA Sports have announced that FIFA Manager 14 will be the last in the series. Which is probably just as well, because those games were rubbish. They're the equivalent of when footballers launch their own line of cologne. It's an obligatory brand extension which makes a lot of money for…

Nothing But Net (Profits): NBA Live 14 Has Ultimate Team

Hey, remember that terrible addictive thing that's consuming my life from FIFA 14? Well, EA are adding it to NBA Live 14, their attempt at taking back the basket-to-ball market from 2K Sports NBA series. This makes perfect sense, but I never saw it coming.What other games might EA soon add Ultimate Team to?

PC FIFA 14 Will Be Previous-Gen Version

Pro Evo Soccer may have won next season's foot-to-ball battle before it even begins. During an interview with Polygon, Andrew Wilson, executive vice president of EA Sports, revealed that the fancy new ball-jiggling mechanics of the Ignite engine will not be gracing the PC version of FIFA 14, which will instead be equivalent to the 360 and PS3 editions. Why? Well, PC conversion would be…

Another Fine Messi: Fifa 13 Demo Out Now

I thought I'd have a kickaround on the Fifa 13 demo so that I could actually sprinkle the pepper of opinion upon the scant sliver of information in this post. Sadly, it doesn't work for me and I don't know why and don't have time to correct the issue. The Fifa 13 demo is now on Origin. It probably has new animations for celebrating goals,…

Foot-To-Nation: Fifa 12’s Expedition Mode

The Euro 2012 addition to Fifa 12 shall be DLC rather than a disc-based continental kickabout as has previously been the case. This we already knew. What I didn't expect was for the DLC to contain a new mode which combines world conquering with foot-to-ball, namely the Expedition Mode. Travel the continent, crushing nations and stealing their best and brightest feet, along with the legs…

Fifa Ho Hum: Euro 2012 Game Is DLC

I'm a lapsed football fan, so I'm writing this not knowing a) where Euro 2012 is being held, b) if any of the British teams have made it to the finals, and c) if goalies are paying much attention to the ten-step rule. I have heard of Lionel Messi, though. But even as a missing link in the Mexican wave of foot-o-ball trivia, I knew…

How Is Fifa 12 Like An RPG?

In an interview over at The Guardian, EA Sports' Andrew Wilson has been talking about foot-to-ball game Fifa 12, which according to sales figures all of you own several hundred copies of. There's an interesting curveball of a comment from the interviewer though when he compares Fifa to an RPG leading vice-president Wilson to respond thusly:"I think it's pretty perceptive to look at it as…

EA Sports “Abandon Physical Media” On PC

VG247 have been grilling outspoken EA Sports boss Peter Moore in a multipart interview. One of the headlines that has emerged from that is EA Sports intends to abandoned the boxed product for PC, because Moore believes "the future is online and connected.” This doesn't mean they're abandoning the PC, of course, so foot-to-ball remains safe. But it could radically change how you pay for…

EA Sports Back On PC In 2009

EA Sports titles are to return to the PC next year, it has now been confirmed. After the fuss caused when Sports boss Peter Moore posted some rather poor reasoning on his blog, PC players were left both insulted and in the dark about the future of the various well-milked franchises. During an investor conference call today, Shack reports that Moore is beginning to lay…

Peter Moore Hates Your PC

He clearly doesn't, and that's just the sort of reactionary nonsense he's clearly hoping to avoid. But a recent post on his blog, regarding EA's decision to stop making their Sports franchises for PC, isn't quite as heartwarming as he might wish. It seems the reaction to EA Sports' games becoming console only has been pretty vocal, so Moore has responded by laying out exactly…
