Meeting The EA Sports Voiceover Guy

If you’ve ever played sports video games, odds are you recognize the famous EA motto, “E. A. Sports. It’s in the game!”

YouTuber Sean Crossan was lucky enough to run into Andrew Anthony, the famous voice of EA sports, and had the opportunity to hear the motto live from the horse’s mouth.  

The resulting short clip has instantly caught viral fire, amassing over 400,000 views, and appearing on SprotsGrid, BleacherReport, and Reddit

“He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born,” Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater told Mashable.

1. We’ve known since April that after 75 years, Archie Andrews would die.

5. “He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. It’s what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years,” said Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater.

Watch photographer Levi Bettwieser of The Rescued Film Project discover and process 31 rolls of film shot by an American WWII soldier over 70 years ago. Bettwieser knows nothing about the person who shot the film or who it belonged to, but these never seen before photos offer a glimpse into the mind of the soldier/photographer as he captured the tumultuous world around him.

Twilight co-stars Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene both dated…

John Mayer

Katy and John began their romance in 2012, dated on and off for almost two years, and broke up for good in 2014. Taylor was linked to John in 2009 and their breakup will always be captured in her song “Dear John” and his tune “Paper Doll.” Don’t worry, John. You’re not alone.

16

The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti.

Drew dated Fabrizio from 2002 to 2007, and Kristen began her romance in 2011. Drew, who is known for being pretty hippy-dippy and easy-going, touched on Kristen and Fabrizio’s relationship, saying, “It all seems so wacky and incestuous, but that’s kind of how life works.” It didn’t work from Fabrizio and Kristen, who broke up in 2013.

21

Although they couldn’t appear to be more different, Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff both dated…

26

That would be Sean Combs (or Puff Daddy or P-Diddy or whatever he was going by then).

J-Lo famously dated Combs from 1998 to 2001, and Cameron was “casually linked” to him multiple times between 2008 and 2012. The ladies starred together in 2012’s What to Expect When You’re Expecting and said not to expect any cat fights.

Graphic by Chris Ritter for BuzzFeed

There’s this quote by super mad genius computer scientist Alan Kay that people come back to a lot: “People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.”

For a long time, that’s meant Apple. Apple designs and creates hardware, along with the software that runs on it. And in a way that’s been even more true over time — in the last few years, Apple’s bought chip companies so it can design the brains of its iOS devices in house. The theory is that it simply works better that way, because it all works together. The software is perfectly tailored for the hardware — the chips inside, the buttons, the screen — and the hardware is crafted with the software in mind. Apple even constructed its own distribution system, with the Apple Store. Kind of like the old vertically integrated Hollywood studio system. It controls every aspect of the experience (unless you go to a Best Buy, but even they’re required to raise an Apple obelisk in the store, like a portal into another world, Apple World).

Microsoft, the biggest software company in the world, has done the opposite for the last couple of decades: It makes software and sells it to a hardware company like HP or Dell or Samsung. They turn around and sell you a computer or phone with Microsoft’s software installed on it. This has worked pretty well by at least one measure: volume. Windows was on over 90 percent of the world’s computers for nearly two decades, and is still on the totally overwhelming majority of them.

But something’s changed. Microsoft’s most beloved product is the Xbox 360 and Kinect, which Microsoft constructed atoms to bits. It’s now designing, building and selling its own tablet, Surface, to be a “stage for Windows.” It did this in secret, without telling the companies that’ve been making Windows PCs for years. Surface’s killer feature is probably a piece of hardware. From a “software company.” When it launched Windows Phone in Fall 2010, it architected the hardware for partners like Samsung to follow. Then it went ahead and more or less bought its own phone company anyway, in a multi-billion dollar deal with Nokia. (The trick is that Microsoft got most of the benefits of buying Nokia without any of the downsides.) Oh, and it’s building out Microsoft Stores like crazy, in which it’ll exclusively sell Surface tablets.

In a sentence, Microsoft, the world’s biggest and most important software company, is now effectively designing and building the hardware for the three products most critical to its future: Windows, Xbox and Phone. And building its own distribution system for them. Because it got really serious about its software.

Phones and computers and TV boxes are not single-celled organisms floating in a primordial sea of electricity anymore. They’re parts of complex organisms. Hardware is the skeleton and guts; the internet and wireless connectivty is sinew; software is the meat. It’s what people ultimately touch and experience when they use technology. It’s not surprising Microsoft announced yesterday that Windows Phone 8 is going to run the same Windows core as Windows 8 itself — and I suspect the next Xbox will run it as well.

It’s not a neat trick that a Windows 8 tablet can seamlessly connect to an Xbox 360 or a Windows Phone — and all of those things back to each other — any more than it’s a neat trick you can touch your nose. They’re both complicated, coordinated actions, in a way. But it’s just how things are supposed to work. What we’ve seen and experienced over the past few years is that the only way to orchestrate those simple-but-complex actions is to control the entire system. Bones, muscles, nerves. Otherwise you end up poking yourself in the eye a lot.

There’s a very good money reason for Microsoft to start selling complete pieces of technology, designed end-to-end. But I think it just wants to be able to scratch its nose.

Even Google, whose eventual endgame is having you live your life in a browser, designs a Nexus phone every year, the pinnacle of Android, that it collaborates super tightly with a manufacturer to produce, which it originally intended to distribute itself. This year, it’s probably putting out a Nexus tablet, too.

And what of the “hardware companies”? Well, they’re making more and more of their own software. Samsung’s software already smothers Google’s Android, and it’s building its own phone OS from the ground up. HTC’s talked about buying its own mobile OS. The whole HP-Palm debacle was because HP wanted its own platform that would run on everything from PCs to phones to tablets to…printers.

What this means for you is that there’s going to be a day, very, very, very soon — pretty much now — where it’s going to be dumb to buy a phone or computer that wasn’t built — hardware-software-services — by Microsoft or Apple or Google, the three companies whose platforms you’re going to be using for the foreseeable future. Not quite as soon, but eventually, you might not even have a choice. Well your choice will be very simple: Apple, Google or Microsoft. It’ll be better that way, probably. People don’t like choices very much anyway.

The next entry to the rebooted Tomb Raider will only be coming to Xbox One, eschewing other platforms like PC and PlayStation 4.

The Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusivity was announced at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany Tuesday morning. The game follows 2013’s gritty reboot of the franchise, putting a younger, less-experience Lara Croft on a dangerous tropical island.

While it wasn’t entirely clear if Rise of the Tomb Raider would come to PS4 and PC a few months after its holiday 2015 release on Xbox One, the Tomb Raider blog,which developer Crystal Dynamics runs, clarifies that is not the case.

“Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past – we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

“This doesn’t mean that we’re walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.”

What do you think about Tomb Raider only coming to Xbox One? Share your thoughts in the comments.

1. JANUARY: Well, the year started off right. JaVale, then with the Washington Wizards, was stared at by a baby.

Cool baby.

2. JaVale also made huge strides in the field of mobile DJs by attaching speakers to a roomba. DJ Roomba in the HIZZOUSE.

View this embed ›

3. We discovered that he walks around his apartment in an astronaut suit.

4. And he closed out the first month of a great 2012 by throwing an alley-oop to himself in a loss to the Houston Rockets. Note: this is not OK to do in a game. At all.

5. FEBRUARY:

In February, the Wizards established themselves firmly as one of the league’s worst teams — JaVale was a starter every night — and JaVale charted two of his greatest plays of all time.

6. FIRST: He goaltended a shot. OK, that happens. But he didn’t just, like, tip it away from the hoop — he catapulted the ball into the stands. Really, really far.

7. SECOND: After missing a hook shot, JaVale just assumed that the Raptors rebounded the ball, and so he sprinted back on defense — even though Washington still had possession. John Wall was very, very confused.

8. MARCH: TRAAAAAAAAAAAAADE

March was a pivotal month in the year of JaVale. The Wizards traded him to the Denver Nuggets for Nene, meaning that, for the first time in his career, JaVale would actually play for a good team.

9. The best reaction came from his mom. It’s a shame how gangsta his moms is.

10. (Speaking of JaVale’s mom… don’t ever mess with JaVale’s mom.)

11. So, what kind of start did JaVale’s Nuggets career get off to? You guessed it: he… scored a game-winning dunk?

JaVale!

12. APRIL:

April was a dark month, because it was the month we learned that JaVale sold his Segway to Wizards teammate Kevin Seraphin after he got traded.

13. In memoriam, let’s remember that time he drove his Segway through a McDonald’s drive-thru.

14. On a brighter note, we learn from a Sports Illustrated profile that JaVale calls his off-the-backboard self-oop the “Super Hi-Fi Superphonic Supersonic Ultra Intercontinental Bring It Around the World Throw It Off the Back Dunk,” which is pretty cool.

Thanks, SI! You really can’t watch this too many times.

15. We also learned that even Metta World Peace rags on JaVale: “I don’t think he watches tape. I think he plays video games, and he could possibly have an Atari.”

Yeah, that Metta World Peace.

16. MAY: In May, JaVale made the first playoff appearances of his career against the Los Angeles Lakers, quickly drawing eyes with plays like this.

17. He had a fantastic performance in Game 5, and his 21 points and 14 rebounds helped the Nuggets take L.A. to seven games. They also led to this legendary moment.

Unfortunately, JaVale would go only 2-12 in the Nuggets’ last two playoff games, at which point they were eliminated by the Lakers.

18. Fortunately, just because JaVale was out of the playoffs didn’t mean he was out of our hearts. He tweeted about copping a pet platypus…

20. …then revealed that, in fact, he had LIED about copping a pet platypus. It was a roller-coaster day for all of us.

21. OFFSEASON:

In June, July, and August, JaVale mostly kept off the radar, which made sense, considering that the NBA was off until the fall. However, there were three major developments in the world of JaVale that are more than worth mentioning.

22. FIRST DEVELOPMENT: JaVale reminded us that, on Twitter, he is not JaVale; he is Pierre.

24. SECOND DEVELOPMENT: JaVale started only retweeting other people, with no tweets of his own, sometime in June.

25. (For example:)

26. HOWEVER, the plot thickens: if you go back through his timeline, you discover that he retweets people who have retweeted him. This means: since June, he’s been deleting all of his own tweets.

27. THIRD DEVELOPMENT: In July, JaVale started only tweeting in the form of retweets of himself.

28. For example:

JaVale hasn’t actually tweeted Merry Christmas before only to retweet it now. He’s just writing his new tweets in the form of retweets. Why? Who knows!

29. Or:

Of course, this is a JaVale retweet of someone else retweeting him retweeting himself, because he deletes all of his own tweets. Hero.

30. So yeah, JaVale McGee is Weird Twitter.

31. SEPTEMBER: JAVALE GOT ANOTHER SEGWAY!!!

34. Also in September, JaVale tried to buy 10 Denver-ians(?) burritos at Chipotle. Only one guy showed up. He bought that guy a burrito.

35. Undeterred, he then tried to buy 10 Denver-ites(?) Noodles and Co.

H/T Ball Don’t Lie

36. THIS SEASON:

JaVale’s been pretty good so far during the 2012-13 season: he’s posting the best true shooting percentage, blocks- and points-per-game numbers of his career. But for concision’s sake, we’ll sum up his performance to date in three simple GIFs.

37. In true JaVale fashion, there’s the Good

38. The Bad

(Yes, that goes over the backboard.)

39. And the Ugly.

This is George Karl reacting to a particularly bad JaVale sequence. I am not calling George Karl ugly. George Karl is a beautiful man.

(H/T to Tim Burke at Deadspin for the GIF.)

40. It’s been a wonderful year in JaVale. Let’s hope 2013 is just as good.

41. With JaVale around, blessings so abundant EVERY DAY.
