A Round-Up of this Year's Annual Sports Video Games [ Editorial ]
I’m no fan of yearly franchises – to me, 12 months between releases is barely enough time to both rework game mechanics effectively and focus on complaints and wishes from fans. This often results in buggy releases and lacking new features. But, in all honesty, there are a lot of people who would be disappointed if their sports series weren’t updated yearly, so I tend to give these a pass (get it, a pass?... right). Still, it’s important to have a look at what’s new, so let’s go down the list very briefly:
Madden NFL13 – On the sight of things, [...More

Mario Sports Mix Hockey [ Guide ]
Hockey in Mario Sports Mix is a pretty straight-forward business. You need to score more points than your opponent. In the most basic sense, that means scoring the most goals. You start at the center as a match begins and players grapple for the puck. Then you try to slide the puck along the ground before using a swing of your stick to knock it into the rival team's goal. When that happens, everyone returns to the center of the arena and the process repeats until finally the time allotted for the round expires.
There are complications, however. [...More

Top Spin 4 is the latest 2k Sports Tennis Simulation. Get a chance to play with 25 tennis superstars such as Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Rafael Nadal, Serena Willliams, Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, and Ana Ivanovic.
The game is compatible to Move but it doesn’t support XBOX 360’s Kinect. 2k Sports said that the reason why the game does not support Kinect is that they wanted to preserve the gameplay which should work and feel as if you are using a tennis racket. They don't want a 'dumbed down' or 'lite' version of the game.
Top Spin 4 is now available [...More
Mario Sports Mix Dodgeball [ Guide ]
Dodgeball matches tend to be over rather quickly, due to the rules of that particular game. To win, you need to knock out your opponents. In a game with default settings, each character on the court starts with a full blue life meter. When a given character takes a hit, part of his or her life meter is removed. The exact amount that disappears depends on the power of the throw, which is affected by the inherent strength of the character who threw the ball and also by the number of coins that character has collected on the court. [...More
Mario Sports Mix Basketball [ Guide ]
While the basketball itself in Mario Sports Mix is not difficult the competition sure does heat up in the later levels. So you better study up.
The first trick is to spend as long as you can without shooting. In later rounds you should always make a shot if you have an open opportunity. In the earlier rounds, success relies more on your willingness to keep the ball away from your rival. Most of the time, the members of the opposing team won't try to rush you, so it's easy to let the timer tick down and to only make the [...More
