I am back to playing Spiderman on PS4. I stopped playing when I got AC Odyssey.

I will probably play this until Madden comes out.

Anyone play Final Fantasy 14? The new expansion is amazing. Never thought I'd play a MMO again after quitting WoW years ago, but 14 is miles ahead.

I get the appeal, its just my cup of tea.

I heard they are releasing Shenmue III. I am beyond ecstatic for this game!

No love for Baker on the madden ratings - 83 overall.

Ward is an 88 and Chubb 85.

Yes we did! Yeah I typically don't get a response on my Nintendo posts. The Wii is what got me back into Nintendo, before that the last Nintendo console I had played was the SNES. I love the Switch, now having kids it's great being able to play anywhere in the house or off-screen when the kids are watching a show.

My brother and a couple buddies play, so I decided to try it out a while back. At the time, it was free to level up to 35 with all classes. After doing that for a while I signed up and haven't stopped since. I don't play a ton, but it doesn't finish you for it like WoW seemed to.

Pre-Ordered Madden.

I cant let the first year in my madden life we are good be the year I don't buy it.

Madden has released if you had the more expensive version.

I was playing a bit last night before I went to bed, so and the early returns are pretty good, I must say.

Noticeable first are the graphics. The players a little sleeker, the colors a little more vibrant, and the animations are very well done. Snow games, you can see each and every step on the snow covered field.

Second was gameplay and gameplay speed. They players move faster - very noticeable as soon as you field the first kick. With that, player speed ratings ACTUALLY make a difference. Gone are the days of a LB chasing down a guy like OBJ from behind.

Defensive is more realistic. A few times early, I threw a ball thinking the LB was going to bat it down, or make an INT as they would normally in last years game. Nope. This year LB don't have super moves or are able to jump any ball they like with speed of a rocket.

Passing - the passing is much improved as well. Ball speeds and throw types are more realistic, and players arm strength comes into play more than ever.

Running - with the limited game play, I felt it was a little easier to run, but you didn't get as many "chunk" plays. In last years game, far too often I would run and get 1 yard. 1 yard. -1 yard. 2 yards. then I would bust a 30 yard run. then a 15 yard run. then a 1 yard. etc. This year, it seems to me you will get more 3-5 yard runs, then no gain and negative runs.

QB1 Franchise Mode - I dabbled with this a little bit. Ehhhhhh, I think it could be something good, but I just don't like the story mode etc. They are still lacking behind 2K in this regard to their MyPlayer. But its def. better than last years version when you play that guy from some bum HS and work your way through like a movie.

Franchise - I didn't notice too much difference with the Franchise mode. But I will admit I only jumped it and looked at it. I did not start a Franchise mode yet.

Overall - I am VERY optimistic with this game. I think it has all the potential to be the best Madden game in a LONGGGGG TIME. The gameplay and smoothness of the players reactions and speed alone make a huge difference.

Great freaking game! I got 100% on that one and it was worth every minute. I didn't do the DLC because I read that it wasn't all that much extra gaming. I had already moved on to a new game so I never bought it. Yeah, I recommend it highly too. I hope they release a 2nd one next year.

Switch owners - I downloaded Super Blood Hockey yesterday. Holy crap it's a blast. Sure, it's a copy of the old NES Ice Hockey with tons of blood, but there are challenges & tournaments. Great fun for $7 (I had a $35 gift card to the Nintendo Shop).

I also downloaded Super Street Fighter IV on my PS4 a week back. Damn, it's so good. I can beat the computer on normal with ~10 characters. I'd probably get destroyed online. It's fun learning the moves and pulling off a super combo finisher.

I was into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for a while, but man that game just grinds my gears. I've had to rage quit a few times trying to get gold on the 200cc circuit. The logic to punish the guy in first place is maddening sometimes.

I might buy the new Madden when it drops to $29 or cheaper. I used to play Madden and the NCAA game so much back in the day. I got burnt out. It's hard to get back into that. Plus, I have so many games I can play for 5, 10 or 15 minutes. A football game is a bit of investment. We'll see...

This is an issue and Madden has tried to address this. You can play Key Moments (about a 20 min game), offense only, or defense only, along with a full game.

The Key moments is cool, it will allow you control key drives, or if the AI is driving on you take over the def and try to stop them. might be an avenue for you.

ughhh, sold my playstation last night. man, I didn't really think it was going to be so hard - I know that seems weird, but let me explain.

I got this the day it came out. It was the first xmas present my wife bought me as a married couple (yes it came out in November - but it counted as my xmas gift smile ).

I spent HOURS playing when my nephews would come over and spend the night at my house. WE would play COD all night, eating pizza and snacks, chugging Mt. Dew lol.

When my son was born, I was laid off from work. I spent the first 4 months as a stay at home dad, but I also was the night watchman. So when he would wake up or need fed throughout the night, I would hold him in my arms playing Mad Max and Madden 16. I have pictures of him as old as 8 months holding a DualShock controller wearing my headset.

I remember my brother buying the VR system when it first came out and I ran over his house with my wife, and the second she played it (she despises video games), she looked at me and said, "ughhh, go get one" (any expense over 200.00 we discuss with each other - just our little rule).

Maybe its the whole moving process for me (we are selling our home and decluttering), but man I had a little frog in my throat explaining how to sync the controllers to the system.

Punch, I downloaded FirePro for PC yesterday, and you can download high quality user created wrestlers. Ive got all the current WWE guys, the old ones, WCW, and AEW.

Anyone been playing Mario Maker 2? The courses are a great challenge!

I play 14. The shadowbringer story was great. Being an mmo, I feel they've done a decent job of allowing people to catch up if you don't play all the time. You can be hardcore and keep up with everything or play as you have time. With a gear reset every 8-9 months, you don't have a huge grind to play catch up if you take a break.

Yeah, it's a blast downloading all the 80's wrestlers. I also created a character and went through the whole story mode, it was cool. The challenges are hard (some are impossible).

I've wanted MM2, but we'll see.

IMO, it's a great but frustrating game. If you're going to be playing with other people, it's a blast. If you're going to be playing against the computer to "gold" all the CC classes, you make break your controller.

Goodness, their rubberband logic is amazingly unfair. And a few of those rainbow road courses are freaking impossible on 200CC. I fall off every other turn.

Maybe it's my inner geek and that I played the tar out of this ages ago, but I think this is quite cool. I'm not saying I'd attempt it or watch live on Twitch, but when a record is set, I'll take notice. This happened a few weeks back.

I've been playing a bunch of retro games lately. I added a bunch of different consoles and games to my raspberry pi.

The old Zelda games are so awesome. Link to the Past on SNES is a top 5 game all time for me, any console new or old.

They added this to the SNES Online on the Switch recently. I started to play but then Links Awakening got released and I have been on that. Once I complete that Id like to go back and play Link to the Past.

it holds up really well

i know eventually there is going to be official emulation on the nintendo 64 whether it be through the switch or via a classic console, and i know i'm going to be heartbroken when ocarina of time does not hold up as well, because i dumped so many hours into that game, and it never got old
