Soccer Fans Form Pac-Man: Nugget From The Net

Video games are an international language. The image above is from Milan's Champions League quarterfinal against Barcelona. Fans assembled a Pac-Man display that featured Pac-Man chasing a ghost in the colors of Barcelona's away uniform. The text on the banner reads "Let's eat them!"

Not bad, Milan fans! Although, the Pac-Man might have been the best thing at the game: It was a scoreless match due to Milan's shameless bus-parking and terrible pitch.

Once In A Lifetime: The Rock vs. John Cena

You can't miss this! Literally. In an unprecedented move (similar to The People's Elbow), all the NBCUniversal cable networks will be airing Once In A Lifetime: The Rock vs. John Cena, a 60-minute documentary devoted to the history that leads to their upcoming epic showdown at Wrestlemania XXVIII. As you will undoubtedly already know, WWE has been setting up this once-in-a-lifetime match for over a year, and, this Sunday, in The Rock's hometown of Miami, FL, the "dream match" will finally take place.

We at G4 are happy to be part of Wrestlemania XXVIII, and to show our viewers this documentary, which not only talks about the showdown, but the history that both men bring to the squared circle. As the defining superstars of their respective eras, Rocky and Cena evoke some of the strongest reactions ever known in the world of sports entertainment.

So, tune in on Saturday, March 31st @ 10PM ET to watch the premiere of Once In A Lifetime, coinciding with the end of our Tough Enough marathon (featuring the one and only 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, and both The Rock and Cena in special appearances).

MLB 2K12

It's that time of year again. Spring Training is in full swing. Baseball season is just around the corner, and MLB 2K12 is here with another round of the Perfect Game Challenge.

This year, just being the first to pitch a perfect game in the latest edition of the franchise will not be enough to win you the $1 million prize. It might not even get you close enough to really compete for it. This time, the players who throw the top eight perfect games over the course of April will compete in a tournament, and play for the money and the right to join the Perfect Club.

Also, instead of having to send in video like you did in the past, 2K12 features a game mode dedicated entirely to the contest. On achieving perfection, players will be given a code that they will then use to be added to the contest's leaderboards.

Super Bowl Prediction: Madden Picks The Winner: Giants Beat Patriots

As a red-blooded American, I'm sure you enjoyed watching the Super Bowl yesterday with your friends and family, but as much as you may have enjoyed it, it was totally not needed. Video game Madden 12 did a fairly accurate job predicting the game last week, so you basically could have watched the Puppy Bowl instead.

Madden predicted the final score would be 27-24 in favor of the Giants. The actual score: 21-17: Giants. Very, very close, I think you will agree.

Super Bowl Prediction: Madden Picks The Winner: Giants Beat Patriots

There's no reason to watch the Super Bowl game on February 5. We already know who will win. The New York Giants will beat the New England Patriots 27-24. This is the prediction put forth by Madden NFL 12.

Specifically, kicker Lawrence Tynes kicks a game-winning 40-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Giants past the AFC Champion Patriots, bringing home the Giants’ second Super Bowl championship in four years. So it should be a pretty exciting ending.

MLB 2K10 Predicts Phillies Over Red Sox In World Series (And Other Lies)

Fans of 2K’s Major League Baseball series will once again have a chance to pocket a cool $1 million for pitching a virtual perfect game in 2K Sports’ upcoming Major League Baseball 2K12, albeit with a little twist.

This year’s perfect game challenge will take the top eight players on the MLB 2K12’s perfect game leaderboard and pit them against each other in a live tournament to see who walks away $1 million richer, unlike the past two years, which simply awarded the prize to the first person to accomplish the feat.

Another change for this year’s contest is that players will not be required to film themselves pitching the perfect game. Participants just have to play MLB 2K12’s Perfect Game Challenge mode. Pitching a perfect game gives you a code that you then submit to 2K Sports' perfect game contest site.

FIFA Street

The FIFA Street series is getting a reboot and soccer fans everywhere need to listen up. If you've been jonseing for an arcade style soccer game you're in for a treat. FIFA Street is shaping up to be the the over-the-top game you want. 

"Equally intriguing is the feature-filled multiplayer component of FIFA Street, which offers not only the traditional versus and co-op online play, but also the asymmetrical multiplayer inspired by Need For Speed’s Autolog and ways to track your friends similar to EA’s FIFA Footballl Club. There’s also value to exploring the game’s character creation feature as it ties to the multiplayer. That’s because you can draft your friends’ players to your roster and use those characters regardless if your friends are online or not. Of course, your friends might be developing those same team members on their own systems, so if it turns out that they’ve improved those characters over time, you can always download those new and improved versions as well."

Check out our FIFA Street preview for more.




WWE 12

When G4 needs someone to play a wrestling game, we turn to wrestling expert Mike "Suplex" D'alonzo, a longtime fan of the genre. He caught WWE '12 in a figure-four leglock and found the game to be excellent. Surprisingly, WWE '12 stands out for more than than the excellent wrasslin' gameplay. The story is impressive too, specifically, the Road to Wrestlemania mode.  From the review:

"First of all, by making the Road to Wrestlemania objective based, instead of predicating it on a never-ending string of matches, WWE '12 assures that you'll remain connected to, and interested in, the storylines. And what storylines they are, indeed. Without getting too deep into spoiler territory, the Road to Wrestlemania focuses on three stories, in particular, that of The Villain, The Outsider, and The Hero, each of which is a very rich, very deep story that, quite frankly, is better than anything the actual WWE have come up with in a long, long time."
