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 takes the form of a spiritual successor, putting Sensi creator Jon Hare back in the hot seat to...

This is a recap of my first ever season in Road to the Show in MLB The Show 17. Prior to getting started, I opted for the zone hitting system, armed with the brilliantly accessible dynamic difficulty setting to aid my gradual progression both at the plate and in the field.

Sixteen of the top Madden 17 players locked up in Burbank, CA this past weekend for their shot at $150,000, a title belt that would make The Rock blush and the right to call themselves Madden 17 Champion.

NBA Playgrounds: A New Take on Street Style Basketball
NBA Playgrounds is a fine-tuned blend of arcade basketball and competitive play. It has a tendency to lean on the former, but the 2-on-2 matches can get awfully tense in the final moments of a game, especially in more difficult matches against the A.I. The game strives to be a modern-day take on the NBA Jam formula, letting players leave realism and simulation at the door in favor of a faster pace. It doesn't live up to the aforementioned classic, but it's just fresh enough that it's able to chisel a spot for itself among the short list of arcade sports titles on the current generation of consoles.

How to Build A Diamond Dynasty Squad on the Cheap in MLB The Show 17
While Diamond Dynasty remains the crown jewel in MLB The Show 17 for SDS -- receiving the most attention from the developers, thanks in no small part to being a cash cow that sees players spending small fortunes to stack their teams with powerful squads -- its a mode that still remains intimidating and inaccessible for many. This is likely because many players simply refuse to invest the same kind of capital as others and therefore believe its not even worth trying to keep up with all of the Joneses with deep pockets.

You just need to know how to harness all of the resources the game provides you free of charge to cobble together a team that can take you up the leaderboard.
