Madden NFL 17: Play the Moments Is Better Than You Expect I'll admit to being someone who read about Madden 17's "Play The Moments" (PTM) as being something gimmicky that I probably wouldn't touch. I have never trusted the Super Sim engine of Madden, and I like to play out all of my games in their entirety. But, I wanted to check it out anyway as it is one of Connected Franchise Mode's (CFM) new features for Madden 17. What I wasn't expecting was that I would actually really like the feature, and plan to use it in my solo CFM.

The Three Best and Worst Things About Madden NFL 17
Did you catch Ben's review of Madden NFL 17? If not check it out here! The more we submerge ourselves in any specific sports video game, it’s almost impossible not to notice the tiny details that either make your jaw drop or linger like a festering wound. Madden 17 might be the cleanest football game to date, but it isn’t without its share of frustrations. Though, perhaps now more than ever, the “little things” are nice surprises instead of disappointing ones. Here are the three best and worst things about Madden 17.

NBA 2K17 Hands-On Impessions - Physics, Aiming with Shot Stick & More (PopSci)
PopSci has posted their NBA 2K17 hands-on preview, as they go over physics tweaking, aiming with shot stick and more.
Quote:
To make the game more realistic, the team made sure you could no longer run or jump through an opposing player’s limbs, which was a complaint they heard repeatedly. This also means that the ball will actually ricochet off of a player’s arm or leg, making you fight for better position. The team worked on tweaking the physics of the game, allowing you to play more physically and fight for the ball like real players do.​

Axis Football 2016 Review (PC)
“We think Axis Football is a lot of fun, but it's certainly not up to current standard for sports simulations in terms of graphics and depth of features.” This is the statement on the future of Axis Football at the bottom on its Steam page. It’s an important admission and perspective to keep in mind as you read my analysis of the independently developed Axis Football 2016.

SBK16 Review (iOS/Android)
When it comes to mobile sports gaming, SBK16 is a bright spot among a lot of pretty lame and average sports titles. SBK16 is a free-to-play game representing the 2016 Motul FIM Superbike World Championship. SBK16 features bikes from Aprilia, Kawasaki, Honda, Ducati, MV Augusta, BMW and Yamaha. On top of that, there are real SBK riders along with several real race tracks with which to race on. In short, there’s a lot of attempts at authenticity within the game, and the attention to detail does show.
