Playstation 4 (PS4) or Xbox for Christmas ?

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

SKNR Cover Sep2013With all of the hype and hyperbole over the launch of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One starting to fade now that both systems have launched, it is time for us to give both of them a grade and that grade is Incomplete. Now I am not bashing on either of the systems but rather stating that consumers simply do not have enough information to properly evaluate their systems.

Monday, November 25th, 2013

EA Sports FIFA 14With the worldwide impact of FIFA at an all-time high, EA Sports has captured the majesty of the sport of Soccer with the amazing FIFA 14. The game is available for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 systems and is due soon for the next generation consoles.

While I played Soccer in High School I will admit that my knowledge of the professional game is limited as names such as Pele, Beckham, and Donovan are the players that I would be able to identify the easiest. Regardless of your level of skill and experience, FIFA 14 has something for you from eye-popping graphics to the most realistic action and player options of any soccer game to date. (more…)
