Hot Iced Action: Franchise Hockey Manager 3 Out Today

The official sport of Halloween is, of course, iced hockey. The sport's origins date to Halloween 1874, when trick-or-treaters refused sweeties by a miserly Montreal hockey millionaire retaliated by flooding his private hockey court. The water froze overnight but when Sir Stanley Cups took to his court the next morning, he discovered that iced hockey was a delight. And that's why Franchise Hockey Manager 3…

Out of the Park Baseball [official site] is different though. It's different because baseball isn't a popular pastime or even part of the cultural background in many parts of the world. It's different because it's one…

Feature: Home, sweet home

Out Of The Park Baseball 15 review

Out Of The Park Baseball doesn’t simulate a sport, it simulates a world. Tracking franchises, coaches, leagues, rosters and rules, the game is capable of generating a fictional world built around America’s Pastime. Previous releases have been among the most impressively simulated and highly regarded sports management games ever released, and the new season’s release doesn’t disappoint, despite some undercooked new features. Here’s wot I…

Superior Bowl: Beyond The Sideline Football

I spend a great deal of time and energy trying to convince British friends to give American sports a chance, which makes it extremely annoying when only one team shows up for the year's biggest NFL game. To be fair to the Denver Broncos, they did join the Seahawks in New Jersey last night but had shot themselves in the foot within 12 seconds and…

Bat-To-Ball: Out Of The Park Baseball 13

I may be the one of the few men in England who cares that the new baseball season has just begun over in UnitedStatesVille, USA but I'm surely not the only sports simulation fan to be intrigued by the release of Out of the Park Baseball 13. As with many sports games, the annual releases tend to involve incremental improvements, roster changes and the addition…
