    The Top 20 iPhone And iPad Apps of 2011

    It’s telling that Apple chose an app that debuted more than 14 months ago, Instagram, as its “iPhone App of the Year” for 2011. This should not imply that there was a shortage of quality and groundbreaking apps released this year. Far from it. From social magazines to music discovery apps to console-quality games that players can hold in the palms of their hands, there are hundreds of new… Read More

    EA sticking with Tiger Woods for PGA Tour 11 game due out in June

    After Tiger Woods’ personal indiscretions became public, the championship golfer found himself suddenly devoid of most major sponsorship deals. One of the last big holdouts has been Electronic Arts, makers of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series of golf games. It’s now been revealed that the company will definitely be standing by Woods, with the next version of the console game to be called… Read More

    EA Sports conducts survey to see what people think of Tiger Woods

    EA Sports has been one of the last holdouts to stand by its sponsorship of Tiger Woods, the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series being one of the company’s more popular franchises. However, a recent survey seems to indicate that EA may be hedging its Tiger-themed bets a bit. One of the survey questions, in particular, is pretty straightforward: “Has the controversy made you more or less likely to buy a… Read More

    AT&T drops Tiger Woods sponsorship

    Gotta hand it to Bloomberg for this riveting one-sentence article written by two people. “AT&T Inc. is ending its sponsorship agreement with golfer Tiger Woods, company spokesman Michael Coe said in an e-mailed statement.” I don’t recall seeing Woods in any TV or print commercials for AT&T but he definitely had a few big, fat AT&T logos on his golf bag. The company still has… Read More

    In The Age Of Realtime, Twitter Is Walter Cronkite

    The year is 1963. It's November. At 1:40 PM ET, CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite comes on the air. "In Dallas, Texas, three shots were fired at President Kennedy's motorcade in downtown Dallas. The first reports say that President Kennedy has been seriously wounded by this shooting." Rapidly, everyone in America descends upon the closest television set to tune in. Thankfully, we have not yet had a… Read More

    This Is Why The Internet (And Twitter) Wins

    Undoubtedly by now you've heard about Tiger Woods' car crash. Early reports had him in serious condition (which remember, is better than critical condition) after he apparently hit a fire hydrant and a tree while leaving his home in his SUV. The latest reports say he has been released from the hospital and is "fine." But I'm not going to speak to any of that because that's not what we do (you can… Read More

    An early look at Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online

    If you groaned a groaning groan at the announcement that the PC version of Tiger Woods would be online-only, cheer up. I played around with the beta for a while yesterday and came away impressed. Read More

  • Video: Jimmy Fallon vs Tiger Woods

    The story goes like this: Jimmy Fallon challenged Tiger Woods to Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 on the Wii. Jimmy embarrasses Tiger in Times Square. And then both of them made fools of themselves on Late Night. We won't spoil the surprise, but lets just say they both play like crap and our own Doug Aamoth would be happy to conduct a golfing clinic for either one. Read More

  • Review: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (Wii) with MotionPlus

    Short Version: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 with the Wii MotionPlus accessory is the closest you can get to a true golf simulation for $60. The already-great series gets a nice boost this year with true one-to-one motion sensing, addictive online play, and a bevy of other new features that easily justify the purchase. Read More

  • Video: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10's Disc Golf feature

    New to Tiger Woods PGA Tour on the Wii this year is the “Disc Golf” feature, which allows you to play all of the in-game courses as a disc golfer. I figured it’d be gimmicky at best. Well, I was wrong. It’s fun, and it’s a great use of the MotionPlus add-on. If you’ve ever played disc golf before, you’ll probably enjoy playing it in the game. If… Read More

 
  • Quick Look: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 with Wii MotionPlus

    As a longtime fan of the Tiger Woods series of golf games from EA Sports, I was quite disappointed with last year’s effort. You can read the review and yell at me if you’re so inclined, but I stand by the review. I took issue with what I called an “atrocious” putting system, the lack of realistic motion sensing for half and three-quarter approach shots, and really bad voice… Read More

    Computer version of Tiger Woods to be browser-based, PC and Mac compatible

    EA is going the online-only route this year for the computer version of the Tiger Woods golf franchise, called Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online. That's good in the sense that it'll be Mac compatible too, updates should be automatic, and you'll be able to play from any computer. Read More

    Wii version of ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10’ to feature MotionPlus

    If you’re like me, you’ve been a longtime fan of the Tiger Woods games on the Wii but you were disappointed with Tiger Woods 09’s mere incremental upgrades and overly frustrating putting system. If you’re not like me, you probably yelled at me for being down on the game, accusing me of never playing golf in real life and wondering why-oh-why anyone would pay me to write about gadgets for a… Read More

    Review: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 (Wii)

    Here’s one man’s opinion: Nintendo Wii, as a gaming system, was meant for golf. I would have bought the thing if it was called the Nintendo Golf Simulator back when it was released. Nintendo keeps releasing non-golf games for it, yet I just wait for one game every August. Tiger Woods 07, released in mid-March 2007, was a pretty good first crack at motion-based golf on the Wii. Then… Read More

  • Wii: Tiger Woods ‘09 finally gets online play, plus better swing mechanics and five new courses

    http://videomedia.ign.com/ev/ev.swf This year’s version of Tiger Woods for the Nintendo Wii should finally address some of the shortcomings of the first two titles. Most notably, you’ll finally be able to play online against three other players. What’s really cool about the online mode is that all four of you will take your shots independently of each other. So you’ll see… Read More
