The message boards are buzzing about the new slate of sports video games that are going to be hitting the market soon. Sports video games take up a decent amount of my leisure time and the same can be said for most of the sports fans I know. So let's take a look at some of games that are due to arrive soon.
Our love for this series is well documented. In fact, I'm quite sure that the EA NHL series is the best sports video game out there right now. As a hockey fan, I'm very happy about that development.
This year, EA is giving something to the fans of the franchise mode who feel neglected after the major step forward that was Be-A-Pro mode in NHL 09. Franchise mode is now Be-A-GM mode in which all of your major moves will be rated and players will have a record of all their achievements as a GM.
Also, the fact that my boy Patrick Kane is the cover player only adds to my desire to play this game.
First person fighting anyone?
Below are videos for this upcoming title.
NBA Live 10
If anyone has played the NBA Live series recently, they know that compared to the 2K series of games, it's been a steaming pile of excrement. So far all that has been released is the trailer, but based off interviews I've read, this game looks like it could potentially challenge 2K's reign atop the NBA video game throne.
The main reason for this belief is the contributions that Mike Wang, the lead developer for NBA Live, is bringing to the table. Wang used to be the lead developer for the 2K series and was just recently brought over to EA. And who says that EA is just a power hungry video game goliath?
Here's Mike in his own words:
These are just two games to look forward to in the coming months. We'll post more information when we receive it.
