R.B.I. Baseball 18: Improved, But Still A Long Way To GoR.B.I. Baseball 18: Improved, But Still A Long Way To Go If there has ever been a series I have rooted for more than R.B.I. Baseball, I’m not sure what it would be. Baseball needs a good product on every platform and with MLB The Show on the PS4 being your only option, you are limited as a Nintendo or Microsoft console owner. It also goes without saying that R.B.I. Baseball has been a bad to terrible series thus far. Also it is worth noting R.B.I. isn’t supposed to be a sim, it’s an arcade...
Out of the Park Baseball 19 Road to Release 4: RostersOut of the Park Baseball 19 Road to Release 4: Rosters Out of the Park Baseball 19 will ship worldwide on March 22, but there’s still time to pre-order it for $35.99 and get the game 3 days early, on March 19. As we considered the 2018 MLB Opening Day rosters found in OOTP 19, one of the most sluggish free agent markets in recent memory remained oddly stalled well into Spring Training. Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta remained, strangely, unsigned well into March, despite the likelihood that at...

NBA 2K18 MyTeam: Week 24NBA 2K18 MyTeam: Week 24 MyTeam was a bit slow after the All-Star break, so I’m skipping ahead to week 24. And what a week it’s shaping up to be — let’s start with fan-favorite Tracy McGrady and his buddies from the brand new Prime Time premium collection. [IMG] Personally I’m hoping to pick up Grant Hill’s diamond. McGrady is going for over 400K, but for some reason Grant is already in buy-it-now territory. I’m guessing that’s because his 3-point rating isn’t insanely high, but...
NBA Playgrounds: An AppreciationWith monster dunks, quirky character designs, and over-the-top arcade style gameplay, NBA Playgrounds sure seems like it’s trying to be the spiritual successor to the beloved [I]NBA Street[/I] series. With [I]Street[/I] on what seems to be a permanent hiatus – its last release was nearly a decade ago – there’s certainly an opportunity to step into that void. As a lapsed Street fan, I was skeptical when I first loaded up Playgrounds – but after a short while I became a...
Three Things to Watch Out for in Madden 18 the Rest of the SeasonThree Things to Watch Out for in Madden 18 the Rest of the Season Now that Madden 18 has been out for over three months, we’ve had plenty of time to live with the game for a while and break down all of its strengths and weaknesses. But since a modern Madden game is evolving all the way up until a new one is released, this might be a good time to look ahead to the coming months and suggest what EA can do to finish out its current season with a bang. With that in mind, here are three things...
Sociable Soccer Early Access Preview (PC)Sociable Soccer Early Access Preview (PC) It’s been over 20 years since Sensible Soccer first arrived on the scene, establishing a unique brand of arcade football that drew quite the crowd back in the mid-90s. Although it would eventually succumb to the 3-D era of sports games, Sensi spawned multiple sequels and continues to be played to this day by a passionate group of devotees. Sociable Soccer takes the form of a spiritual successor, putting Sensi creator Jon Hare back in the hot seat to...

Gaming Reviews Impact Winter Review
Impact Winter Review Trudging through a desolate, snow-covered landscape for ten minutes, scavenging a couple of gas cans, and hiking another ten minutes back to the fire you need to fuel sounds like a chore. This series of actions is what characterizes the experience of Impact Winter, a slow-paced survival game. But monotonous as it may seem, you'll be driven to keep performing these actions because of the tense scenario that contextualizes them. Instead of challenging you to persist indefinitely, Impact Winter asks you to endure for a set amount of time with the looming promise of rescue--an end to your struggles--and pushes you to stretch your already thin resources just that little bit further. You play as Jacob, who leads a group of four other calamity survivors. They're holed up in a church when a little robot called Ako-light springs to life, broadcasting a mysterious transmission that states a rescue operation is occurring in 30 days. Jacob's task is to leave the safety of the church with Ako-light at his side and traverse the post-apocalyptic tundra, scavenging for supplies in order to keep the group alive until that time. Sometimes, this is all you'll see for a while. Each survivor, including Jacob, has a number of meters that must be maintained at a safe level in order to avoid their deaths or departures from the group. These include overall health, energy, hunger, thirst, temperature, and morale. Keeping the church bonfire fueled and making sure each survivor is fed and happy are as important as exploring the world and completing quest lines, which fast-track the looming rescue operation by taking chunks off the timer. The constant juggling of all these priorities keeps you anxiously engaged, your thoughts constantly being occupied with short-term...
Diamond Dynasty Update: New Impact Veterans Released
It's a light Friday update by Diamond Dynasty standards. A new pack, a couple new cards and a small roster update are the major highlights. The June 2nd Bases Loaded pack costs 5,000 Stubs per pack (limit 3 per person) and will have a guaranteed Impact Veteran or Breakout Series player in it. The new players in these packs (in addition to all the old classics) are Impact Veteran Aaron Hill (89 overall), Impact Veteran Angel Pagan (85), Impact Veteran Dioner Navarro (84), Impact Veteran Denard Span (84), Impact Veteran Justin Morneau (81), Impact Veteran Johnny Bench (78), and Impact Veteran Dale Murphy (73). I would say these packs are not worth your Stubs, so if you're really dying to get a couple more Breakout or Impact Veterans just head to the Marketplace and buy a couple. Battle Royale got a mid-week update that added Breakout Eric Gagne (97) and Hardware Joey Votto (96) as two new potential rewards for going 12-0. Another group of players were added today as potential rewards for various tiers of wins. These players include Impact Veteran Chipper Jones (95), Postseason Flashback Cole Hamels (95), Impact Veteran Cliff Floyd (88), Impact Veteran Drew Storen (87), Impact Veteran Shin-Soo Choo (85), Impact Veteran Joaquin Benoit (85), All-Star Odubel Herrera (84), Impact Veteran Drew Pomeranz (84), Impact Veteran Roberto Alomar (83), All-Star Addison Russell (82), and Impact Veteran Ted Williams (80). In terms of the roster update, it lacks any major impact, but as always, we still have some players moving between tiers. Moving Up Gold: David Robertson (86) Silver: Robbie Ray (82), Luis Severino (82), Jake McGee (82), Cameron Maybin (80), Alex Avila (80) Bronze: Adam Frazier (74), Paul Sewald (73), Koda Glover (72), Chase Whitley (71) Charlie Blackmon also improved his Gold status...

Tennis World Tour Set to Join Next-Gen
It's been a long time coming, but it seems like we might finally get a Top Spin successor on current-gen consoles. Tennis World Tour is set to be formally introduced at Gamescom 2017 in August, and I'm very excited about it. I have owned every Top Spin that ever existed, as well as a temporary venture into Virtua Tennis 4, which had better graphics but was nearly unplayable by comparison. With that being said, I feel like Top Spin set the standard in being able to translate tennis to video games. I kid you not, my youth tennis coach noted that my decision making started to improve on the court as I played the game more.
