Behold: The N64 GoldenEye 007 Characters As Footballers

Released in 1997 on Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 brought countless hours of joy to crowded living rooms across the land as friends crowded around the TV to get their turn at dual-wielding Klobbs in four-player split-screen battles.

Welcome To The Largest Soccer Gaming Event In History

Count me among the many who were disappointed when FIFA announced that the 2022 World Cup would be moved to wintertime. What is a summer without a World Cup? Fear not. Not all hope for nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat action is lost.

July 13 marks the beginning of the first-ever FIFAe Finals, the largest event ever hosted in FIFAe history.

La Liga MX Se Va Del FIFA: Detalles De Su Acuerdo De Exclusividad Con eFootball

En el FIFA 23 (o como quiera que se llame el próximo videojuego de fútbol de EA Sports) no habrá Liga MX. O al menos no con los nombres oficiales de sus equipos y jugadores. 

¿Hora de un CDMX FC, un FC Guadalajara y un Guanajuato United? Vaya a saber uno. Lo que sí es una certeza es que el acuerdo que venía desde 2005 se termina y que los jefes del fútbol mexicano decidieron buscar otros horizontes.
