NFL 2K is back, but here’s why you shouldn’t expect it to compete with ‘Madden’

first_imgIn announcing the deal, the NFL and 2K used specific language about what type of game to expect saying, “The games will be non-simulation football game experiences.” 2K president David Ismailer added. “We’re thrilled to be back in business with the NFL in a partnership that will span multiple video games centered on fun, approachable and social experiences.”Several hours after the NFL and 2K’s announcement, EA Sports responded with a statement of their own.EA Sports is the exclusive publisher of NFL simulation games, and our partnership with the NFL and NFLPA remains unchanged. Our agreements have always allowed for non-exclusive development of non-simulation games on various platforms. Our commitment to NFL fans, which spans almost 30 years, has never been stronger, and we’re having our biggest year yet. Madden NFL 20 is the most successful game ever in the franchise, and new modes like Superstar KO and our Madden NFL esports broadcasts are growing the fan base. We’ll be building on that momentum with more new and different experiences, on more platforms and with new ways to play, in the years to come.In other words, don’t expect 2K’s games to be direct competitors to “Madden.” MORE: The XFL is in ‘Madden 20’ thanks to a dedicated team that made it happenSince 2K didn’t really release any details on what they plan on developing, we can’t really say what the games will be. But based on the statements, we know what the games won’t be. They won’t be new versions of the previous 2K series, because EA Sports holds exclusive rights to simulation football.As for what non-simulation football means, there’s no explicit definition, but think along the lines of arcade-style games such as “NFL Blitz” or “NFL Street.” Even that, however, could be stretching it. As Polygon points out, the announcement only says 2K reached an agreement with the NFL.This means the deal only covers the names, logos and associated elements for the league and its 32 teams. In order to add in players (names, images, likeness), like “Madden” does, 2K would need to sign a seperate deal with the NFLPA. It’s not clear if 2K has done that at this point. The NFL and 2K announced a deal Tuesday that would allow the video game publisher to create “multiple football games” in the near future.The announcement was met with praise online as 2K’s previous football game “ESPN NFL 2K5” (released in 2004) was a fan favorite. The game was 2K’s last major football release before EA Sports signed an exclusive deal with the NFL. But fans of  game should lower expectations, because you shouldn’t expect a continuation of the 2K series. In 2007, 2K found something of a loophole with the NFLPA by releasing “All-Pro Football 2K8.” In that game, 2K secured the rights to 240 retired NFL players to use their likeness in somewhat of a throwback game featuring John Elway, Jerry Rice and Barry Sanders on the cover. However, in that game, 2K did not have NFL rights so the developers were somewhat limited in what they could produce.Polygon also reports “EA’s existing deal [with the NFL] is set to expire at the end of the 2021 NFL season.” So perhaps reviving a partnership with 2K could lead to some competition between video games in the future, albeit a few years away.The announcement stated 2K’s projects “are in early development and will launch starting in calendar year 2021, during Take-Two’s fiscal year 2022.”last_img read more

Local Company Terrabucha Launches new Coffee Kombucha

first_imgSubmitted by TerrabuchaNew brew in town.  Kombucha brew that is.  Terrabucha is a kombucha brew like no other.  The first in their product line is coffee kombucha. Wait.  What?  Yes, coffee kombucha.First things first.  What is kombucha?  Kombucha has a long history dating back to the early years of A.D., about 2000 years ago, and originated in Asia.  It is a fermented tea using beneficial bacteria and cultures.  It is brewed with fresh, filtered water, tea, a little pure cane sugar, and a live colony of good bacteria and yeast.  What you get is a slightly sweet-tart taste with a little effervescence. When people drink kombucha, they drink it for the healthy aspects it brings to your body.  We can certainly use that with all the processed foods out there, stress, and the environment.  Kombucha contains probiotics…the good gut bacteria your body needs to have a well balanced digestive system…..just like those probiotic yogurts or other fermented food.  According to one wellness site, kombucha ‘contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and enzymes and has been prized by traditional cultures for its health-promoting properties.’There are other kombuchas out there, so what makes ours different?  We brew it with coffee from a local roaster.  It is so clean and fresh tasting, slightly carmelly with a light coffee finish.  100% kombucha too.  No fruity juices or fillers added.  100% Earth’s Natural Brew.  We must note that adding a shot of whiskey or kahlua enhances the experience, as well as mixing it with a stout beer.  Brew on brew.  Dee-lish!We started brewing coffee kombucha at home about four years ago and decided it was too good to just keep to ourselves.  Last year we started our company, Evelise, whose name is derived from the combination of our mothers’ middle names — Evelyn and Louise.  We lost both of them a few of years ago and they were so important to my and Dave’s lives we decided to pay tribute.  Lori is the master brewer, bookkeeper, marketing director and President.  Dave takes on the warehouse, distribution, bottling, apprentice brewing and general see it and I-can-fix-it master of everything else.We rent the first commercial commissary kitchen in Thurston County and we are considered food processors according to the FDA. We are working on a new product — cold brewed coffee concentrate.  Have you ever had a bad cup of coffee?  Not so much bad tasting but left you with indigestion?  TerraJava, our cold brewed coffee concentrate will eliminate that as it doesn’t have the acids and oils like a regular brew.  What you get is a clean, smooth, delicious coffee.  One ounce of coffee concentrate will yield one cup of coffee when adding 6 to 7 ounces of steaming water, or if you want an iced coffee just add cold water and some cubes.  It stores in the fridge for up to six weeks.  Voila!  Super convenient!  And no mess, no fuss. Lori used to doctor her coffee with cream and sugar but not so with this clean, honest brew.  It’s great all by itself.We are anxious to get our new product out in the market so Terrabucha has a crowdfunding campaign.  Give a little or a lot but just give….to a local business.  And share, share, share.  You never know.  You might find us on Shark Tank one day.  Click here to learn more.You can find Terrabucha coffee kombucha at Olympia Food Co-op East, and in the produce departments at Ralph’s Thriftway, Bayview, and the new Haggen store (formerly Albertson’s) at Lilly Road and Pacific Avenue.  Come test drive this brew.  We have tastings about once a month at various locations.  Like us on FaceBook for news and dates, and check us out at love what we do. It’s Earth’s Natural Brew. Facebook32Tweet0Pin0last_img read more


first_img(On the next race): “When we talked about it at the beginning of the year, we said we’d go to the San Vicente and the Florida Derby because we liked the timing. I think Doug will change his mind a couple times between now and then, because there’s the temptation to stay home. We love Santa Anita. But we’ll see. We just want to take it in stride. It was a good first step.“The track was fast, and he ran like the track was fast. He’s just got that mindset that you’re not going to beat him.” NOTES: Winning owners Paul and Zillah Reddam reside in Irvine, CA. KENT DESORMEAUX, EXAGGERATOR, SECOND: “You’d have to break the track record to win the race, so that’s telling for both horses. They’re both very talented. I had a dream trip. The winner was too good.” JOCKEY QUOTES TRAINER QUOTES -more- KEITH DESORMEAUX, EXAGGERATOR, SECOND: “Goodness gracious. Anybody not a believer in Nyquist now, that was an awesome race, to set those kinds of fractions and still finish in close to track record time for a three-year-old in February. Wow! Hat’s off to Nyquist.” DOUG O’NEILL, NYQUIST, WINNER: “Everything went great, and for the race to go the way it did, I’m pumped and so proud of the whole team. Mario (Gutierrez) was great under pressure, which is what we need right now.“Exaggerator is a nice horse, and for him (Nyquist) to hold him off the way he did showed you how talented he is. There were some anxious moments when I saw the fractions, and you’re better off on the outside tracking than on the inside being tracked. The post (one) wasn’t an advantage at all and I think we got pushed by the bottom horse (Sheikh of Sheikhs) a little bit early. But Mario is smart. He knew what he had. I really was impressed with the gallop out. He galloped out great.”Next race? “I haven’t talked to Paul (Reddam). The original plan was the Florida Derby (April 2) and there’s a bonus involved, of course, so we’ll huddle up and play it by ear and do whatever is in the best interest of Nyquist for sure.”center_img MARIO GUTIERREZ, NYQUIST, WINNER: “He hasn’t run since November (Oct. 31) so we know he was going to be rank but I also believe in his talent. I wanted to fight with him as little as possible today, let him do his thing and you saw the results.“I wasn’t worried about Exaggerator today. I can’t be worried about that, about other horses. I know my horse is talented enough to make it to the bigger races so if I’m worried about other horses now, this early, than that makes me sound like I don’t believe in my horse and I do.” 2/2/2/2 DENNIS O’NEILL, NYQUIST, WINNER: “It was scary, because I saw that horse pressing him, and 44 and change was a little spooky, and then eight and change, and you keep waiting for them to slow down off a layoff like that. To see him kick on and gallop out like that was really, really exciting. I don’t know how good this horse is now. I knew he was a good horse, but I thought today’s performance was amazing. We’re really excited moving forward. It’s a perfect prep. We have seven weeks (to the Florida Derby). We couldn’t ask for anything better.“The gallop out was scary, because it looked like Exaggerator had him. He made him run. He kept trying to get a breather, and he couldn’t get a breather the whole way. For a horse to do it is pretty exciting.” PAUL REDDAM, NYQUIST, WINNER: “That was what we anticipated. We knew Exaggerator was ready, and we knew we’d probably have to go.”(On not getting respect): “They can give him respect or not, but that’s not going to affect his performance on the racetrack. We try not to take any of that personally and if they want to say, ‘That was only seven-eighths – how’s he going to be at a mile and an eighth or a mile and a quarter?,’ We’ll let him tell us.” FLAVIEN PRAT, DENMAN’S CALL, THIRD: “We had a good trip, we were right behind Nyquist and Exaggerator. For a moment we were in the second spot and it was a good race.“It wasn’t a big win but we did something good today. He’s still very green but he’s a good horse.“I feel good about it; with these things you just get back to riding horses and gain the experience.”​ -30-last_img read more

Boy Scout project evolves into friendship

first_imgTwo Saturdays a month, he met with them at the AbilityFirst/Paul Weston Center in Woodland Hills. Spend a few hours helping them with their Cub Scout projects and earn the credits he needed for his merit badge. At least that was the plan. “We knew something special was happening when Christopher kept coming home every Saturday telling us he was really having a great time with them,” said his dad, Peter. “He wound up volunteering to be their den chief, their Boy Scout mentor, which is a big commitment. “He’s also starting to bring Scouts from other troops to meet them. “It’s gone well beyond trying to earn a merit badge.” Christopher DeVries searched the sea of blue Cub Scout shirts in the 5K run/walk portion of Sunday’s Los Angeles Marathon, looking for his buddy Sam Bashe. The 12-year-old Boy Scout from Thousand Oaks had promised the 10-year-old Cub Scout with cerebral palsy that he would push him across the finish line in his wheelchair. But he was having trouble finding Sam in the crowd, and the finish line was only a mile away. A few months ago, the 14 Cub Scouts in Woodland Hills Pack 88 – all physically disabled – were only a project to Christopher – a way for him to earn his Boy Scout merit badge in disability awareness. This is exactly what he was hoping would happen when he started Troop 88 in January, says Jeff Richards, director of the Woodland Hills center that helps people with disabilities reach their full potential. It’s all about inclusion, he says, getting able-bodied and disabled Scouts mingling and learning from each other. Knocking down some of those stupid stereotypes and fears. “We have 14 boys now, but next year I’m sure we’ll have 30 or 40 as word spreads in the disabilities community that we’re here waiting for them with open arms,” Richards said. For more information on the Weston Centers programs, call Richards at (818) 884-6612, Ext. 102. Christopher found Sam with less than a mile to go Sunday, taking over pushing his wheelchair from Sam’s mom, Jo. Her son had been up since 4:30 a.m., dressed and ready to go, she said. She hadn’t seen him this excited since the day he got his Cub Scout shirt and cap a few months ago. “He wore them to bed, refusing to take them off,” she said, laughing. “You just don’t know how important something like this is, to be included. “Normal kids don’t like being around Sam because he can’t do what they can. He gets left out of everything. “Now he’s so happy, and has something to look forward to – his Cub Scout meetings and being with Chris, his best buddy.” That was them a hundred yards ahead, smiling as they crossed the finish line and had a gold medal placed around their necks.

Pochettino defends Tottenham draw: ‘Three games in six days in tough on the players’

first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino bemoaned his side’s packed schedule after his Spurs side laboured to a goalless draw with Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane.It was the side’s third fixture in a week, following last Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Everton and a midweek defeat to Premier League leaders Chelsea, and they were hoping to get back to winning ways following the 3-0 drubbing at Stamford Bridge.But while the below-par hosts dominated possession they failed to impress on the ball, as Palace threatened on the counter-attack and came within inches of grabbing all three points in the second half.Jason Puncheon hit the bar with a powerful close-range strike, while Neil Warnock’s spirited side forced 12 corners to Spurs’ two.Tottenham managed to hold on for a point though, and while Pochettino was happy enough with the result, he admits his players looked ropey against their London neighbours.“Three games in six days is tough for the same group of players,” said the Spurs boss.“We had a lack of freshness today which meant there was a little bit of a lack of creativity upfront.“It was a difficult game, Crystal Palace are a very physical team and they played very well.“We created some chances but Palace were very tight, very organised, and it was tough but we’re happy with the point.”last_img read more
