NBA Live 13 has already been canceled by Electronic Arts. Needing more time to error out the problems that game had, a repeat occurrence that set back the NBA Live franchise another year. It's been since 2009 since EA has published a NBA basketball simulator, allowing 2k Sports to seize control of the market. It was previously rumored that NBA Live 13 was going to launch for Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network, but no official word was given from EA on the matter, however Microsoft community leader, Larry Hryb might have just confirmed the direction the game was heading in.

For a long time, EA Sports has been criticized for releasing yearly additions of Madden to its audience. Problems that have existed in the franchise have plague the franchise until now. Madden 13 releases on the brink of a new console generation and Tiburon Studios pulled out all the fireworks to go out in style. Madden 13 thoughtout everything that was dragging the series down, resulting in one of the most complete sports games in this console generation.

This fall Electronic Arts is releasing Medal of Honor: Advance Warfighter, but they have already started hyping the next installment into the Battlefield series.

If you know me I have been a long time college football fan, making every college game day a tradition like no other. Watching the Cal Bears run out of Memorial stadium on television or at the game has been a ritual on Saturdays and NCAA 13 enhances that. The franchise gets the college experience down to a tie and provides much more than a simple roster update.

Basketball has always been about the fluid and explosive action on both sides of the court. NBA simulators have captured this, but I have always missed the little details that truly have us jumping onto the basketball court. Does NBA Live 13 solve this problem? Sadly no.

The idea behind E3 was to showcase the latest and brightest games of 2012, but there are always a few games that disappoint us. Some games on our list made serious changes to their formula, and not for the better. Other games took center stage at E3 when they shouldn’t have. There were many games at E3, but here is our top five list of disappointments.

The free-to-play market had a huge showing at E3 and was showcased at Sony’s Online Entertainment booth. Recently SOE converted all of its most popular MMOs into the model, giving new life to D.C Universe while reintroducing fans to the PlanetSide series.

Last week, Twitch TV posted their booth schedule and during EA’s press conference confirmed Criterion newest game, Need For Speed: Most Wanted 2. Very few details were given, but Criterion is finally giving us the Need Of Speed that we have long been asking.

For the longest time, we’d like to think that the Ultimate Fighting Championship league, or the UFC, have had a great relationship, even when things got a little rough with the publisher and EA Sports producing the competitive EA Sports MMA, which caused White to have some harsh words for the company.  But today, he took part in a new powerhouse relationship that will take the UFC games to the next level.

We are only a week away from E3, but we are starting to get a better idea on what going be showcased at E3 with more and more leaks surfacing as the event draws closer. On Friday, Twitch TV sent out their booth schedule revealing EA's newest addition to the Need for Speed Franchise, Most Wanted 2.

Normally we don't cover the movie industry here, but when we do it's always game related. Recently DreamWorks Entertainment successfully won the Licensing rights and have found themselves behind the wheel distribute the big- screen version of Electronic Arts’ street racing series, Need For Speed. No word yet on the actors who are going to featured in the upcoming film, but we are starting to get a better idea how the movie will shape up.

If you like baseball video games, chances are you’re doing one of two things right now.  You’re either heavily investing yourself in Sony’s dominating simulator MLB 12: The Show on PlayStation Vita or PS3, or you’re playing 2K Sports’ Major League Baseball 2K12, which actually fared pretty well considering how the series has been in a bit of a (pardon the pun) slide here.  But it looks like the competition may be whittled down, as 2K is considering letting its deal with MLB expire in 2013, though that wasn’t officially announced.

Electronic Arts never fails to showcase a strong array of third-party titles for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as well as other consoles each year they attend E3.  Last year was a huge highlight between such games as SSX and Mass Effect 3, but what does the company have to lean on this year?  Well, besides big sports hits like Madden NFL 13 and the upcoming Overstrike from Insomniac Games, we’ve got a few ideas as to what the company should officially announce at the show.  With that, here are our suggestions…
