It really isn’t possible for Madden to disappoint. The latest game, Madden NFL 16, is full of action and new features that makes the famous football video game even better.

EA Sports released the newest Madden on August 25th. The first Madden game was released in 1988 and since then, there has been a lot of pressure for the game to be better each year. There isn’t any other competition; Madden is the only football video game on the market that is worth playing.

This year’s game has some really good changes and nice new graphics. EA Sports has also announced that a patch that fixes some of the bugs will be coming out soon. Madden NFL 16 has some drama with montages yelling on the sideline that are actually voiced by real players and coaches.

The game has received a lot of positive reviews, especially when it comes to the impressive changes the game has made to improve passing. The new Madden is available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. New York Giants’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. graces the cover this year.

One of the coolest additions is the Draft Champions feature. It is kind of like a fun take on fantasy football. The feature gives gamers a draft of 15-rounds to try and build the best team. During each round, the games pocks one of three payers. The other two players vanish and gamers never know who will come up next. It makes the decision making way more dramatic.

It would be really hard for Madden to mess up any of their games. This year’s Madden is pretty good and the minor enhancements really make the game a lot more fun and challenging.

Rage Against the Machine’s London Show Goes to DVD

The rock band played a free show at the iconic Finsbury Park on June 6, 2010. The footage from the concert is going to be released on a DVD titled Live at Finsbury Park. Fans can purchase the DVD starting September 11th and they can expect extra features including interviews and backstage footage.

The band played the free show 6 months after they had a campaign to push their hit song “Killing in the Name” to be number 1 on the UK charts. During Christmas week, the song ended up dominating the charts. So in return, Rage Against the Machine played a free show at Finsbury Park in London. The set list included Bulls on Parade, Guerrilla Radio, Sleep Now in the Fire and other top songs from the rock band.

I have no doubt in my mind that Rage Against the Machine can still rock it, but I do not see them playing a show again, and if they do, I am sure it will be very difficult to get some tickets. So the release of the DVD is a great way for fans to experience the band live. I am sure that the DVD will not disappoint. The show Rage Against the Machine played in London was one of the greatest shows the band has played. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that they played the free show for a reason.

You never know, if the DVD does well, maybe Rage Against the Machine will decided to go on one last tour. I know a lot of fans would love that and they would probably play sold shows across the world.

Slow Start to Fear the Walking Dead

Fans of the hit show The Walking Dead have been waiting months for the premiere of AMC’s new show, Fear the Walking Dead. The night of the premiere finally came and there has been mixed reviews about the new series that is considered a prequel to The Walking Dead.

The 90-minute pilot became the number one cable series premiere with over 10.1 million viewers tuning in. Robert Kirkman and the team behind The Walking Dead created the new horror series. It is going to show viewers how the outbreak started and what happens in the beginning days of the epidemic. The show takes places in Los Angeles and follows a high school teacher and his girlfriend, who is a high school counselor, and their families.

I thought the show was pretty good. It was a very slow start, but if you look back at the first episode of The Walking Dead, it was pretty slow too. A lot of viewers said they were disappointed in the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead, but I have also heard people saying they really liked it. I think it is too soon to tell if it is going to be a good show, but I don’t think it is going to be as big as The Walking Dead. That is a pretty hard show to compete with, even if it is the same team behind the show doing this new one.

The few zombies we saw in the new series were pretty cool and I thought the characters were interesting. I haven’t decided if I really like or dislike any of them yet, but they weren’t that bad. I have heard some viewers say they weren’t impressed with the characters or the acting. But the show did catch my attention so I will be tuning in again next Sunday to see more.

Did you watch the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead? What did you think?

Nicki Minaj Wax Figure Stirs Up Trouble

One of the most sexual artists around is Nicki Minaj. The provocative singer is famous for her sexy persona and songs about sex. So it is really no surprise that her wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas is a little racy and causing some issues.

Minaj’s latest video for her song “Anaconda” is very risky. She poses in the video on her hands and knees and it has now become her new signature pose. Madame Tussauds wax museum thought it would be a good idea to mold Minaj’s wax statue after her now famous pose. It was a terrible idea.

Minaj’s wax statue at the museum in Las Vegas, also known as Sin City, is obviously causing some trouble. Some fans thought it would be funny to pose inappropriately with the wax figure and the photos have surfaced on social media sites.

I am not sure what Madame Tussauds expected. They put a provocative statue of a star who is know for her sexual ways in Las Vegas, of all cities. It probably wasn’t a good idea for fans to pose inappropriately with the statue, but I am not sure why anyone is really surprised by this.

Minaj has said that she is honored and loves the statue of herself. That isn’t surprising either because the singer is very full of herself. She also posted a photo of a fan hugging the backside of her statue. So it seems like she doesn’t mind fans posing inappropriately with her wax figure.

So instead of removing the wax figure of Minaj, Madame Tussauds says they are just going to beef up security. The establishment has said that the attractions at the museum are interactive and usually guests are respectful so they were surprised any guests would do such a thing. Really Madame Tussauds, really?

Straight Outta Compton Impresses Fans

Straight Outta Compton was released in theaters on Friday and critics have been raving about the film. The movie takes viewers on a journey of how Dr. Dre, Easy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella formed the group N.W.A. and took the music world by storm.

Compton

The biographical drama is about the rise and fall of the hip-hop group from Compton, California. The title of the movie comes from the title of N.W.A.’s debut album from 1988.

F. Gary Gray directs Straight Outta Compton and Dr. Dre is an executive producer. With Dr. Dre being involved in the production of the film, it is pretty accurate. The characters of Suge Knight, Warren G, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur also make appearances. The actors do an awesome job portraying them many critics say the acting is one of the best parts of the movie. Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson, Jr. actually plays his father.

Ice Cube

The film also shows what is going on with the surviving members of the group. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube both have gone on to be very successful. It might even be safe to say that Dr. Dre will go down in history as one of the greatest hip-hop artists ever.

Straight Outta Compton started development back in 2009. Due to casting delays, it caused the movie to be pushed back. The movie started filming in August of 2014, so it didn’t take them long to produce the movie since it was released just one year after filming started.

Critics say the movie is enthralling and one of the most entertaining movies of the summer. That says a lot since a lot of blockbusters were released this summer. The only negative feedback I have heard is that the movie wasn’t long enough or part of a trilogy.

Preseason Prepares Us For Upcoming Football Season

The 1st week of preseason kicked off last Thursday and it gave us a look at what is in store for us this football season. There were a lot of interesting match ups and even though it is just preseason, a lot of players shined.

On Thursday night in New England, The Green Bay Packers beat the Super Bowl Champs, The New England Patriots. The Seattle Seahawks lost to the Denver Broncos on Friday, but the Seahawks didn’t play a lot of their top players. The Oakland Raiders were impressive beating the St. Louis Rams, especially since the Raiders have a brand new head coach, offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator.

The best part of the first week of preseason was the return of Eric Berry. The Kansas City Chiefs player was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma back in November. It was great to see him back on the field. The Chiefs played the Arizona Cardinals in Arizona on Saturday and ended up beating the Cardinals. Jamaal Charles was only on the field for like 2 plays for the Chiefs, but it was a smart move since he battled some injuries last season. Speaking of injuries, Cardinals’ quarterback Carson Palmer looked really good back on the field after he suffered an injury last November that made him miss the rest of the season. Palmer played for about half of the 1st quarter and went 4 for 4.

Tim Tebow took the field during the 3rd quarter of the Philadelphia Eagles’ game against the Indianapolis Colts. It was his first time as an Eagle and he seemed to throw pretty accurately and even ran in a touchdown to beat the Colts. He is competing against Matt Barkley for the 3rd string quarterback position.

Usually in 1st preseason games, the starters play the 1st quarter, the 2nd string team plays the 2nd and start of the 3rd quarter and the rest of the players finish out the game. It is cool to see all the players get a chance to play on the field. So really the game is just for fun, but it gives the players a chance to play together and try to get a groove before the season really starts. It also gives the rookies a chance to hit the field and play for the first time with the big boys.
