Pittsburg Steelers’ WR Antonio Brown Graces the Madden NFL 19 Cover

The Madden cover has a long history of featuring some of the NFL’s premier talent. From young upstarts to Hall of Famers, landing on the cover is a symbol of greatness. This season, nobody personifies that greatness more than Antonio Brown, the Pro Bowl wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown was once considered undersized for the NFL. After falling in the 2010 NFL Draft, 21 WRs were chosen before him. Since then though, AB has solidified himself among the NFL elite, breaking both league and team records as he continues to dominate the field. Not only is AB the cover athlete for Madden 19, he’s the game’s best WR with a 99 OVR. He’s not the fastest WR in the game,...

Hello! A week from today on July 24, No Man's Sky, including the Next update, will launch on Xbox One for the very first time. We are focused on development, but we know people are hungry for details. It’s nearly two years ago our small team of friends, with a shared love sci-fi, opened the universe of No Man's Sky for the first time. It was an innovative, weird, and at times, lonely game. I loved that. It reminded me of the science fiction books I grew up with. It was broad in a way that almost no other game is, but with four updates it has become broader and so much deeper too. That will be even more true with the launch of Next, bringing a full multiplayer experience to NMS.... Read more: See Multiplayer in Action in New No Man’s Sky Trailer

These types of games can empower someone with a new perspective or let us live a double-life as a superhero. Narrative-driven games allow us to become someone we’re not, which is perhaps the biggest reason we enjoy these experiences.
