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 News EA Introduces Madden NFL Mobile Season Score
EA Introduces Madden NFL Mobile Season Score There has been much speculation about what EA was going to do with their Ultimate Team powered Madden NFL Mobile and user teams. It appears EA has chosen to reset teams to put everyone on a new playing field for a new season -- but not all progress is being reset, which is a bonus. You will retain your remaining Madden Cash balances. However coins, item binders, head to head rank, seasons completed, level and achievements will be reset to make way for the new season. The good news is, your success this year will carry over to next. Meaning the higher you bring your season score up -- the better packs you'll have when the new season starts.
Quote:Are you playing Madden NFL Mobile? Do you like how EA is handling the seasonal transition? MMChrisS http://www.operationsports.com/newspost.php?id=844105
"Like any NFL GM, you need to make sure youre taking all the steps necessary this season to maximize your chances next season. Players have until Saturday, August 15 to maximize their teams Season Score in order to gain as much of a head start on next season as possible, meaning: Players will be granted Packs at the beginning of the 2015 Madden NFL Mobile season, based on their Season Score on August 15 Your final starting roster on August 15 will be placed into the history books as a Legacy Team.* Players can visit the Trophy Room anytime to look back and enjoy your masterpiece squad from the past season, and will be available for play on a limited basis."
Ask NHL: More NHL 16 Questions Answered, In-Game Sims Are Back, EASHL Questions
EA Sports is busy answering questions again about NHL 16 on the Ask NHL page. Here are some of the highlights from tonight: Will there be in-game simulation in be a gm? Sim Intervention is back in the game and will be a part of Be A GM. Will we be able to hire coaches this year in GM mode? If not, are there plans to add this in the future? You will not be able to hire coaches this year in GM Mode. It is something that we are continuing to look into. Will there be a Zamboni racing mode? There will not be a Zamboni racing mode. Will there be warmups? No. There won't be warm-ups in NHL 16. We have spent all of our time as a gameplay team this year focusing on the core balance of the game during play with a specific emphasis on core mechanics. Are the animations back where the offensive players try hard to stay on-sides by dragging their leg a little at the blue line, or any other animations to help the players stay on-sides better? Yes, one of our gameplay engineers spent time specifically tuning how players use a dragged skate to stay onside. We have seen some great moments where players are just barely onside using the technique before receiving a pass. In EASHL, will we be able to play 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 5v5 (like in the past) or is 6v6 the requirement? Playing 6s in EASHL is a great way to experience the game mode. However, we know that isn't the only way our fans want to play the game (that plus sometimes it's just difficult to get your...

The official MLB 15 The Show weekly roster update is available now. The update adds 9 players and includes 141 player movements. Daddy Leagues have posted the attribute changes for the roster update. Some of the changes include Justin Upton +2 (90), Robinson Cano -5 (88), Nolan Arenado +2 (87), Jose Bautista -2 (87), Prince Fielder +3 (87), Jacob deGrom +4 (86), Michael Wacha +3 (86), Kolten Wong +3 (86), and Alex Rodriguez +4 (85).

MLB 15 The Show: Diamond Dynasty Ratings Boost Predictions (5/31/15)
Another week is almost wrapped up in Diamond Dynasty, and with no packs being released over the weekend prices have been soaring almost across the board. So with that in mind, I'll look ahead once again and try to predict who might be getting a ratings boost Monday morning. I'll be breaking the predictions into tiers based on my own confidence level.
Ratings Boost Probability: High-Justin Upton - Upton has been ruining the baseball all season, but over the past month he's hitting for average while still hitting bombs. -Prince Fielder - I predicted Fielder would get a boost last week, and he did get a plus-2 boost. Still, he's not a Gold as of yet. He's hitting .361 on the season (second in MLB behind Dee Gordon) and .381 with 9 home runs over the last 30 days. It seems fair to assume he may go Gold this week. -Josh Donaldson - Donaldson has put together a great year in Toronto. He's received some boosts already this year, but it's hard to find many players hitting the ball better than him right now. -Paul Goldschmidt - Goldy is third in WAR, fourth in batting average, third in RBI, second in OPS. In short, he's really good. Even though he's already a Diamond, he should get a boost. -Drew Storen - Storen is second in saves, has youth on his side and is striking out over a hitter an inning. -Kyle Gibson - Gibson is a young starter that has been stuck as a Bronze to this point. But he's having a great year that includes an ERA of 1.36 over the past month. -Mike Bolsinger - This seems...

25 Things To Know About Madden NFL 16s Franchise Mode (Game Informer)
Game Informer has posted 25 things to know about Madden NFL 16's Franchise Mode. Quite a few of them were not included in the official blog released earlier today. Below are a few items of interest, click here to read them all.
- Draft classes are randomized, and the development team has tweaked the process to try and ensure better and more realistic distribution of positions drafted and where they are drafted.
- Once your player is drafted, you'll immediately see their ratings and where they rank in the draft in terms of their overall rating.
- Madden 16 does not include major changes to signing free agents or the available contact options. Elements missing in previous years like restricted free agents and the fifth-year option are not in the game.
- Commissioners of online and offline leagues can apply wins or losses to other players' matches. This could come in handy if there was something that prevented a game that should have won, or if you want to advance the week to skip over a deadbeat player.

A new ticker at the bottom of the screen tracks goal progress and shows updates to all the goals influenced that play.
