    EA Sports UFC

    I recently downloaded the new UFC game demo from EA Sports. EA is in a weird situation here, they want to make a game that is a simulation of the sport like their other games. But the problem is, the UFC is a fringe sport and you want to attract as many new players as possible.

    Of course you need to make the game fun and quick to get into, but when you play the demo you quickly realize that is not the case. I am an old school gamer, played tons of wrestling, boxing and fighting games, even played the old UFC games.

    Batman: Arkham Origins

    Batman Arkham Origins

    The latest Batman game has been released, and does it live up to the hype the other two games before it did? Just about. Before everyone is ready to sail off with the next generation of systems like the Xbox One and the PS4, there are still some gems left on this generation of consoles.

    Batman Arkham Origins is one of those gems, almost. Batman Arkham Origins is a prequel to Batman Arkham Asylum and Batman Arkham City. Both the other games were developed by Rocksteady Studios and Batman Arkham Origins was developed by WB Montreal.

    RG3One of the most popular video game series of all time, John Madden football, dropped its 25th anniversary game a couple months back. The highlighted feature of Madden 25 is its revamped “Run Free” running controls. Hall-of-Fame running back Barry Sanders gives his stamp of approval as the cover guy (for the second time) and in Madden 25 you can move like Barry, with all new precision modifier ball-carrier mechanics. It’s a mouthful to say and a handful to get the hang of, but it just takes a little intuition and some getting used to, like most other features introduced throughout Madden’s decorated history.

    Disney Infinity Review

    Disney Infinity

    Well Disney Infinity has been released on the world. The question is, should you buy it or avoid it? The answer is, well, it depends. The first thing you should know is about the game. The game is based on toys that are released by Disney, you buy the toys put them on a base and they unlock in the game. It is very similar to Skylanders.

    The problem is you can not try this out before you buy, because of the link to the toys, it makes the ability to rent the game impossible. Another knock on the game is the price. The starter kit, which comes with the game, three figures and the base to connect to your system costs $75. Each individual cost about $15, the three packs are $30 and the two packs with a virtual playset are $35.
