Press Row Podcast

It’s the middle of summer, and while there’s a bit of a lull in the release calendar before the fall blitz, plenty is still happening in the sports video game world. The 95th episode of the Press Row Podcast is a combination of several conversations. Up first, host Rich Grisham (@richgrisham) is joined by Owen Good (@owengood), Chris Sanner (@ChrisSnr), and Bryan Wiedey (@pastapadre) to discuss the implications of the just-announced EA Access subscription program. After that segment, Rich is joined by Bryan as well as T.J. Lauerman (@thatsportsgamer) and Pete Dodd (@atPeteDodd) to analyze the sports game ‘patch culture’ as well as whether sports commentary matters. Finally, Madden 15 producer Joe Alread (@Palejo) joins Rich to describe all the new changes and improvements coming to Ultimate Team in this year’s upcoming Madden.
