Closing the show at EA's Gamescom press conference this morning was a brand new trailer for FIFA 16, highlighting yet more graphical improvements and game engine improvements. Coincidentally, you can also pre-order this year's edition for current-gen consoles for a record low price thanks to Rakuten's latest voucher code.

There's still a few months until this year's edition is released, which will contain the latest squad listings and all manner of graphical improvements, but the big new additions this time around are the FUT Draft mode, and the inclusion of international female players. Considering how popular the recent Women's World Cup has been, I suspect there will be many players wishing to virtually recreated some of the impressive displays from this year's tournament. Thanks to viperkeith @ HUKD!

Considering how popular the recent Women's World Cup has been, I suspect there will be many players wishing to virtually recreated some of the impressive displays from the last few weeks.

FIFA 15 on PC is once again £9.99

Here's yet another chance to get hold of the PC version of FIFA 15 for under a tenner. As always with the offers from CDKeys, you can get an additional 5% off by grabbing their Facebook code - just type anything in the box to get your discount. Considering how the PC ports are usually fairly bad in comparison to their console counterparts, it appears that last year's instalment actually hit the mark, especially in the visual department. Let's just hope they provide the same quality when FIFA 16 releases later this year.

FIFA 15 Review | Thrilling Pace

FIFA 15 Review | Thrilling Pace

I long one day to have a FIFA game that truly encapsulates what that title suggests, although that would probably be a House of Cards-esque, murky, political adventure title, or a bureaucratic take on Crusader Kings II -- all backstabbing, corruption, and intrigue.

The limited edition set would come with a watch that you'd have to return to the store, naturally.

Instead of that, however, here we have another buzzword-stuffed game wherein you take control of teams of players from a side-on perspective, stringing together intricate passes, laughing at the foibles of player impacts, and cursing when your player tries to volley inside of heading the pinpoint cross you just floated into the box.

FIFA 15 Review | Thrilling Pace

This is really the first true new-gen FIFA title (we're not counting the graphical scrub up of FIFA 14), and it's clear that a number of things have changed on the pitch. Perhaps the most noticeable tweak is that pace is back in a big way. In the real game, a player with pace, someone who runs at defenders and looks to take them on, is a huge asset. FIFA has finally managed to recreate the thrill of having someone like Bale or Sterling or Di Maria really take on opponents at speed. No longer will full backs conveniently be able to catch up, it seems like teams with pace have a real edge that's finally realised thanks to expert balancing to go along with the precision control that has been standard for the last couple of years.

FIFA 15 Demo Impressions | Let's Talk About Our Feelings

The FIFA 15 demo has been out for around a week or so now, and I've been dipping into it in amongst swathes of Destiny, Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2 (do check out Carl's review of Bungie's FPS, and my appraisal of the Zelda/Warriors mashup). As per usual, EA Canada have been showering us with buzzword-heavy promotional sentences largely devoid of any real meaning, and the biggest of the lot for this year's release has been "emotion" -- that is to say player and crowd reactions, presentation tuned to deliver the theatrical and entertaining, and a boost in dynamic atmosphere when it comes to the in-game environment.

Has it worked? Are all of the footballing feels writ large upon this new, super-shiny canvas? Here are a few thoughts are several hours spent playing the demo:

Emotional behaviour is a thing: FIFA's always been a rather emotional game for me, in much the same way as any multiplayer game that you love can be. When winning and bragging rights amongst your friends (or the rest of the online community) are onthe line, matches mean more, and the peaks and troughs of a game matter more than they really have any right to. But this is now reflected on the pitch. In one game where I was playing as PSG, Lucas skipped past several defenders, Ibrahimovic shook his man, but I wanted to get the winger a goal so I ignored the Swede and promptly ballooned a sitter over the bar. Ibra then launched several unintelligible insults Lucas' way.

Players will shove and barge more than they used to, they'll clamour and cheer when you do something awesome, but they'll also let you know when someone's been an arse. After unclean tackles, if those involved are not injured, they'll leap to their feet and start mouthing off and pushing one another. If anything, FIFA 15 has most gloriously captured the notion that footballers are whinging prima donnas, who'll get uppity about anything.

UFC takes down Watch Dogs in the UK Games Charts

Watch Dogs' three weeks at the top of the UK charts has come to an end courtesy of big sweaty lads punching each other in the gonads. EA Sports UFC -- just in case you were in any doubts about who developed it, they put it in the title -- is now top dog and joins three other EA games in the top ten.

MotoGP clocked in at a very respectable 15th place considering its relatively niche appeal, as the second big new release of the week. Elsewhere in the charts we see the same old faces jostling for position, with Titanfall in the upswing and Mario Kart 8 on the slow decline, while Wolfenstein impressively holds its own.

EA Sports should throw their own conference next year

(and stop wasting everybody's time!)

Who cares about EA Sports?

Millions upon millions of loyal gamers worldwide, that's who. From Madden to FIFA and everything in between, on both sides of the Atlantic, EA Sports' annualised games are an institution. For many, it's the sole reason why they bought a console in the first place. We're not here to rubbish EA Sports. We love EA Sports.

Except that we frequently wish that they'd go away. It's become increasingly clear that big gaming events can't and shouldn't address every audience at once, and frankly they're probably big enough to start throwing their own shindig from now on. That we can either excitedly tune into or completely ignore out of hand.
