Hit The Pass - Press Row Podcast

In the 73rd episode of the Press Row Podcast, our regular panel dives into a bunch of interesting topics surrounding what’s quickly become a busy spring sports game season. Up first – after a brief discussion about everyone’s experience with the Titanfall beta - the crew reacts to the MLB 14 The Show release dates as well as the specific features that intrigues each person. Next comes a discussion about the just-released NASCAR ’14 and its place in the market. Listener questions come next, including items about the lack of information about RBI Baseball, the lack of World Cup soccer on next-gen consoles, and how – or if – each panelist purposefully plays their sports games in unconventional ways.

Rich and Peter discuss a broad range of topics including how the game came to be, the process behind determining what features would be part of the launch experience, the challenges and opportunities presented by starting from a “clean slate”, determining the publishing process in the current climate, and – of course – all sorts of details about the features that will be integral to The Golf Club.

Press Row Podcast - Midwinter Roundtable

It’s the 71st episode of the Press Row Podcast, and there’s a lot to talk about as many of us stare out our windows at cold winter landscapes. Up first, our crew goes around the table talking about what sports game and mode they’re playing the most now. Next, we debate whether or not we’re actually on the cusp of a host of new sports game announcements on the heels of new baseball and golf franchises. After that, we look at the lack of Olympic video games on the horizon of the Sochi Winter Games. Finally, we take a number of great listener questions about a series of topics.

It’s the 68th episode of the Press Row Podcast, an audio re-broadcast of our most recent Press Row Hangout that came on the heels of the surprise announcement of the “return” of RBI Baseball. Join host Richard Grisham along with Operation Sports’ Chris Sanner, PastaPadre’s Bryan Wiedey, and ThatSportsGamer’s TJ Lauerman as they discuss their reactions to the announcement, some guesses as to what it may actually be, and why Major League Baseball took it on themselves to make a game when no one else (other than The Show on Sony’s platforms) will.

Press Row Podcast - 2013 Christmas Spectacular

It’s Episode 64 of the Press Row Podcast, the second annual celebration of everything we love about sports video games with friends of the show! For the second straight year, we’ve gathered a who’s who of industry folks, media types, pundits, and fans all to tell us about their top three sports games of the year. Everyone has plenty of great reasons why they chose their particular three favorite titles, which reminds us all that these games strike very different chords with different types of players. It’s an epic three and a half hour show, built for those long hours of holiday travel (or to tune out those relatives you’re forced to spend time with). No matter how you listen to the show, enjoy!
