With the Super Bowl only a couple of days away now--the Sports Gamer is already preparing a big vat of chili--everyone in the world is offering up their predictions for the Big Game, including the Madden-makers at EA Sports. Once again, they've used this year's version of Madden--Madden NFL '10--to simulate a full four quarters of Super Bowl-caliber football.

With all the NFL Wild Card nonsense finally sorted out, the world is now separated into two categories: Those who have a team to root for, and those who don't. (As a Giants fan, the Sports Gamer's season couldn't have ended worse for me. Wah. Oh well. I can always re-watch the 2008 Super Bowl…)
 
For the other losers out there, I recommend looking ahead to the 2010 baseball season. First bit of news: 2K Sports' MLB 2K10 is due in stores in a less than three months. Here's what we know so far:

In a sleepy little corner of Yaletown, the perpetually drizzly city of Vancouver, what could be the most important sports game of next year is quietly being assembled.

Yes, I have played the game. Yes, I have met the nice people who are building the game. Yes, the game is looking excellent so far.

You see, it’s easy to dismiss ModNation as just another kart racing game. Or worse, as a poor man's Mario Kart. (Though the Sports Gamer does enjoy his Mario Kart.)

Fact: I play a lot of Wii games. And, while I do like the fact that you can turn the Wii remote sideways and use the D-pad and 1 and 2 buttons, I don't always feel that playing this way gives me enough fine-tuned control during my most hectic gaming moments.
