In the 158th episode of the Press Row Podcast, Rich Grisham, Bryan Wiedey, and Owen Good chat about a number of topics as the current sports game year gets into high gear. Owen weighs in on last week's discussion about a wishlist for next year's MLB The Show, Bryan discusses the nifty new content for Rocket League, and then the entire crew breaks down the significance of the new, large patches for both Madden NFL 16 and NBA 2K16. What does the extensive support of these titles mean to consumers these days, and what does it mean when other titles are not supported as much?

The 157th episode of the Press Row Podcast is a series of three discussions between Rich Grisham, Bryan Wiedey, and our community. Up first is a chat about hopes and expectations for MLB 16 The Show as we near the time of year that we typically start to hear about new features for Sony's excellent baseball title. Next, the topic shifts to the concern about pro athletes, violent or illegal off-field behavior, and the responsibility of game publishers to keep or remove those players from their game. Last, Rich has a guilty pleasure in the new Need For Speed, and chats with Bryan about why he thinks that is.

Whether you’re a big fan or have zero interest, the explosive growth of money, coverage, and influence of eSports is undeniable. As major game publishers analyze the eSports landscape, what – if anything – does it mean for fans of “traditional” sports video games? What are the similarities and differences between mainstream sports and eSports? Why have eSports become so popular in the first place? Rich Grisham is joined by Kat Bailey to chat about all of these topics on Press Row for the first time.
