Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

There's not much going on today in the sports world, but the video game world is in Heaven right now as E3 takes place. Be sure to read the viewing info and list of games. We'll post updates in here on the new Madden NFL 15 as they're unveiled.

Be sure to check out Polygon as they provide more in-depth coverage and recaps of the event.

Here's a link to their recap of Madden, which highlights the new focus on improved defensive techniques to make it fun again to play defense.

"We knew defense is something we had to get to," said Rex Dickson, the creative director for gameplay for Madden. "Initially, the way we took this on (with) a few of my top designers and top engineers, we just said, 'Pass rush and tackling.' Those are two things people struggle with, and we need to make better."

The NCAA Baseball Tournament and MLB regular season also continue today, and Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals is tonight.
