Captain America: The Winter Soldier Casts UFC Champion

It seems that Marvel's Phase Two follow-up, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has procured yet another addition to its rogues gallery. According to a report from Latino Review, UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges "Rush" St-Pierre has been cast in the super-soldier sequel as classic villain, Batroc the Leaper.

At the moment, details on the context of the role are not available, but if the report proves true, St-Pierre's Batroc would be joining Sebastian Stan as the unfrozen brainwashed Bucky Barnes, now the titular Winter Soldier, Frank Grillo as Crossbones, and Toby Jones as the returning (now possibly cyborg) former Nazi scientist, Arnim Zola on the list of formidable foes with whom Chris Evans' Captain America will have to contend.

In the comics, Batroc, whose full name, coincidentally, is Georges Batroc, is a highly-trained former member of the French Foreign Legion, who became a mercenary, lending his services to the scummier elements of the world, including the sinister organization, HYDRA. While Batroc possesses no superhuman powers, his highly-conditioned state has made him more than a match athletically for rivals like Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and even Deadpool. While he's the kind of guy that will sign up for anything seedy that will line his pockets, he still carries a sense of honor as a warrior and his relationship with Cap has been one that's underlined with a level of respect.

St-Pierre, who is just over a week removed from a dominant decision win over Nick Diaz, settling a contentious rivalry full of public smack talk, has long been considered an ambassador for the UFC organization and the sport of MMA as a whole. He would be joining a small, but growing list of MMA competitors who have recently made the leap (no pun intended) to the big screen like Randy "The Natural" Couture in The Expendables movies (and that horrible straight-to-DVD Scorpion King prequel), Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as B.A. Baracus in the underrated reboot film of The A-Team, and most notably, former female fighter, Gina Carano, who beautifully owned the lead role in the sleeper hit, Haywire, with more high profile projects in the works.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier goes for a double-leg takedown to deliver vicious ground-and-pound to evil at theaters on April 4, 2014.

EA Sports' annual pre-Super Bowl sim is finished, and Madden NFL 13 favors the Baltimore Ravens to take down the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday in a 27-24 victory. If the Ravens win in real life, it will mark the fist time San Francisco loses in the championship game, having won in its previous five visits to the Super Bowl.

The Madden NFL series has had good success with picking winners in recent years. EA Sports' annual Super Bowl sims have been right for seven of the past nine years, with the only incorrect calls coming in 2008, when the Giants shut down the Patriots, and in 2011, when the Packers bested the Steelers. The simulations always use the most recent roster updates and depth charts for each team, with AI controlling both so player skill isn't a factor.

You can get a sense of how the simmed game went down in EA Sports' highlight reel above.

If you think spelunking was the only thing you could do in caves, think again. Weston Scott stopped by the Louisville Mega Caverns in Kentucky to ride the world's first underground zip line. Hmm, this is giving us ideas for The Descent spin-off.

When Attack of the Show puts Weston Scott on the plane, it's usually to drink and eat something delicious. This time, the only thing he's tasting is full-on adrenaline at Red Bull Rampage 2012, a free-ride mountain bike race in Utah. Competitors don't win by only crossing the finish line--they're also judged on how they get down the course!

What does Olympic snowboarder Shaun White do on his free time? He sits down with Matt Mira on Attack of the Show, of course. The pro athlete shares the details on his White Christmas promotion for his snowboarding fans, as well as how there's one (just ONE) sport he's not good at playing. (Basketball!)

Justin Bieber NBA 2K13

The strapping NBA player you see above is not some 7-foot Ukrainian phenom, it's pop singer Justin Bieber, who revealed on his twitter that he will appear as a playable character in upcoming basketball game NBA 2K13.

The actual tweet is amazing, I think you will agree. I've re-posted The Bieb's words below:

"Shoutout to @Ronnie2K for putting #TeamBieber in #NBA2K13. Im running the pt. #SWAGGY"

Swaggy indeed!

Because this is the internet, a wag called DallasCowboys94Ware put together a video of Bieber being shutdown by Team USA. If you're into that sort of thing, click the "Read More" tag... but make sure you watch until the end, to see Bieber tear the court apart.

NBA Live 13

Electronic Arts has canceled NBA Live 13. The ill-fated number 13 in the NBA series was scheduled for release on October 2.

According to Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President at EA, NBA Live 13 was not ready for launch on the original release date, and rather than put the game out in the middle of a season, a decision the company is "going to sit out the full year and stay focused on making next year’s game great."

According to Wilson, "This decision puts us on the right track for success well into the future in a rapidly changing industry."

If you're wondering how the Microsoft Kinect will integrate with NBA 2K13, we've got the answers in video form below.

Thankfully, you won't be standing in front of your TV, jumping around like a damn fool. Instead, NBA 2K13 takes advantage of the voice control for the Kinect, allowing you to substitute players, call plays on the fly, and even dunk your coach with Gatorade when your team is victorious, with just your voice.

Madden NFL 13

Ultimate Team isn’t new to the Madden Franchise, but it hasn’t played as pivotal of a role as it has this year before. It’s front and center this year. With the average Madden player skipping a year or two between releases, it might not be something that you are immediately familiar with, but that’s okay because we’re here to help you pick the ultimate team.

Not Your Average Walk In The Park

Unfortunately for most players, Ultimate Team in Madden NFL 13 isn’t as easy to jump right into as some players might have hoped. It isn’t meant to be though, it’s a deep, football simulator that puts you in charge of both playing and managing a team, and that’s no easy task. You will have to be prepared for the challenges that come with managing a team.

Let’s get this out of the way; you aren’t going to have a very good team at the start. In fact, your team will probably be pretty bad. That’s not a terrible thing though, it gives you the opportunity to learn and build your team at a competitive pace. You will be able to learn about drafting and trades between other players who are also trying to build their ultimate team. There is more thought that needs to be put into it than any other mode in the game, even franchise modes.
