Madden 2015 Super Bowl Patriots Vs. Seahawks

Madden 2015 amazingly got its Super Bowl prediction exactly right

Madden 2015 amazingly got its Super Bowl prediction exactly right

If you had money on the Super Bowl, you would have cleaned up if you based your bet on the simulation conducted before the game by Madden NFL 2015. As USA Today’s Brett Molina notes, Madden’s official simulation got the score of the game exactly right since it correctly predicted the Patriots would beat the Seahawks 28 to 24. And that’s not the only thing Madden got right. More →

Why the hell are Scandinavians insanely good at making addictive mobile games?

It used to be that Scandinavians had a reputation for being fierce viking warriors — now the only time most of them dress up with horned helmets and bear pelts is if they’re LARPing or playing Skyrim. This doesn’t mean we should dismiss Scandinavians as hapless dweebs, however, because they’ve found nonviolent ways of conquering the world in the 21st century in the form of addictive mobile games.

Video: Watch Marshawn Lynch and Gronk play Mortal Kombat on Conan

Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch and Rob Gronkowski are two of the NFL’s most entertaining personalities, although for very different reasons. While Gronk is a gregarious, hard-partying lug, Lynch is often hilariously unfriendly during media interviews and will often respond with a single sentence to every question he gets asked. Conan O’Brien decided to get the two of them together during Super Bowl week down in Arizona to play the yet-to-be-released game Mortal Kombat X and the results were about as amusing as you’d expect.

We’re constantly surprised by the incredible worlds that game developers are able to create, but we’re never satisfied with the visuals for very long. Where Half-Life 2 once shocked a generation of gamers, it can’t even begin to stand up to many of the independent games being released in 2015.

Even the latest AAA releases aren’t leaps and bounds over what we saw at the end of the PS3 and Xbox 360 life cycles, but Unreal Engine 4 has the potential to change everything. More →

Although there are a few highly anticipated games on the way over the next 30 days, it’s still winter, which means the game release schedule is about as slow as it’s going to be all year. That’s a tough pill to swallow for many of us, but Microsoft is making it a little easier with a fresh batch a free games in February. More →

Watch someone beat The Legend of Zelda in 30 minutes by skipping screens, clipping through walls

It’s surprisingly exhilarating to watch someone blast through a video game in minutes that would take a normal person hours to beat. We couldn’t take our eyes off of the ridiculous Super Mario World speedrun last week, good enough for a world record, but just days later we’ve been distracted by another record-setting run of a classic Nintendo game.
