A few years ago Canadian games developer BioWare brought us the critically acclaimed “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” and later followed with “Jade Empire” and, more recently, “Mass Effect” and “Dragon Age”. In 2010, BioWare (now owned by Electronic Arts) has released the long awaited sequel to Mass […]

Mass Effect 2 – Game Review



Well, earlier in the week I finally finished a Madden 2010 Franchise (Green Bay Packers).  Every year I play the 30 seasons (averaging one game per season) and taking care of all the offseason tasks.  Now, I present to you my summary of the Franchise experience for the latest version […]

Finished Madden 2010 Franchise Mode


Where to begin?  If you’ve played Assassin’s Creed (the original) before and even enjoyed it a tad bit, you’ll love the sequel. Overview The sequel (Assassin’s Creed 2 – AC2), begins at the conclusion of the original (story wise) as Desmond (the character you portray in the future) is helped […]

Assassin’s Creed 2 – Review




Hi, well as per my annual ritual I’ve purchased Madden 2010.  I’ve been buying Madden on PC, PS2 and 360 since 1995 and recently I started to question whether I should continue to do so in the face of lagging game quality, copious amounts of plainly obvious bugs and a […]

Madden 2010 – A Quick Review


“The rumors are confirmed! Star Wars: The Old Republic, a massively-multiplayer game set in the critically acclaimed world of Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) was officially announced this week at a press event held at the LucasArts campus in San Francisco.“ Ugh.  Rather than build KOTOR:III which would have […]

Star Wars MMORPG Announced


Well, I’ve found this link here which explains some of the fixes in the recently released patch for the frequently buggy Madden NFL 2009. Looks like they have adjusted the player progression bug in Franchise mode – and I can officially verify that it takes effect immediately once applied (to […]

Details in Madden 2009 NFL Patch 2



Tonight I powered on the Xbox 360 to be told there is a patch available for Madden NFL 09.  I have no idea what the update is for, but I apply it anyway.   I’ll do some digging around to find out what it is supposed to fix. In any case, […]

More Madden 09 Updates


Well, fresh from my previous post on Madden, I’m in a new and potentially blocking situation: I can’t save. I’d really, *really* like to hear from anybody who has suffered from “Freeze syndrome” – i.e. random console locks when playing Madden NFL 2009. It seems that I’ve had a lockup […]

Madden NFL 09 Redux


I’d like to help London Studios (creator of the very successful SingStar franchise) sell a few more games.  There are a number of tracks I’d like to see – these are songs you might find if you wander into a pub and hear the odd tune. This isn’t just a […]

Suggested Songs for SingStar



New year, same glitches.  So fans of this blog and of EA Sport’s Madden franchise (in particular on the Xbox 360) will know that Madden NFL 2008 was basically a release which no one in their right mind would have enjoyed given the heinous defects encountered – especially in franchise […]

Madden 2009 Franchise Mode


Hi all.  Tonight I played Madden 09 on the Xbox 360 for a couple of hours.  Big improvement over Madden 08 in terms of stability, but I have a few items to nit pick. Before I forget (again) – here’s a link to EA Sports site where you can download […]
