“The next generation of WWE video games now has its roster.
On a sunny Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles, an enthusiastic SummerSlam Confidential Panel audience learned which Superstars and Divas will appear in WWE 2K15, the latest edition of the revered video game series. The involvement of squared circle luminaries like Sting and Hulk Hogan has already been announced by WWE and 2K, and Saturday’s roster reveal event at Club Nokia at LA LIVE — which was hosted by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin — confirmed which stars the WWE Universe can choose for their dream match showdowns when WWE 2K15 hits the shelves this fall.”

“Despite innovations that have made it one of the best sports game franchises in history, EA Sports NHL has always played third fiddle to both Madden and FIFA. This is clearly evidenced by the fact that NHL 14, unlike Madden NFL 25 and FIFA 14, isn’t getting a next-gen crossover this year. And while this latest edition in the long-running and successful series makes some great improvements to the franchise as a whole, a lack of improvement or care in both the visual and audio departments compared to its sister franchises actually proves why.”
“It’s incredible to sit back and realize that the Madden NFL franchise has been bringing virtual entertainment to gamers for 25 years. The quintessential football franchise, which began with 1988’s John Madden Football, made that realization an easy one by naming this year’s installment Madden NFL 25. Despite the series’ longevity, one of the constant gripes it garners from fans and detractors is that its annual release schedule has seriously hindered significant development. While that may be the case in the presentation department, this nostalgic version of Madden has provided some game-changing mechanical innovations that make it one of the most strategic editions in its history.”
