We’d like to introduce the newest weapon in the GamesRadar
podcast arsenal – Box Score. Hosted by Richard Grisham, Box Score aims to look
deep into the sports gaming world by speaking at length to the people who make,
impact, and influence the titles we play.
Over time, Box Score will dive into every area of the sports
pool. Sometimes we’ll chat with developers about how their vision went from the
whiteboard to your console; other time we’ll do retrospectives about some of
our favorite sports games of the past. Whether it’s football, hoops, racing,
hockey, baseball, tennis, rugby, or anything else, we’ll bring people from
inside and outside the business behind the microphone for long-form interviews
that won’t be rushed. After all, getting to the heart of the matter takes time.
Our goal is to talk to interesting, informative people who
are as passionate about sports as we are. If we hit the mark, it won’t matter
if you’re a big sports fan or not. A good interview is compelling no matter
what the subject, so long as real people are being honest about their craft.
In our first episode, Richard Grisham speaks with two key
people behind EA Sports’ revival of the beloved NFL Blitz franchise. The guys
chat about how the new NFL Blitz became a reality, how important it was to keep
the old-school vibe, and the challenges that come from rebuilding a classic game
today’s sometimes-difficult environment.
