MLB The Show is pretty good imo
I liked NBA2k but that’s the last sports game I’ve enjoyed
bring back Fight Night
Exact same game as last year’s version they just did the old madden move of changing the UI color scheme
that's every sports game ever that comes out annually
yes and that is part of what makes them bad games
I loved The Show so I bought this years and realized it’s the exact same game. I don’t know what I was expecting…but yeah.
only difference is the #Atlanta Braves are WORLD CHAMPIONS!
Sometimes they take out features that people like so they can put them back in a couple years later and call it new.
Sometimes they also put in features no one likes so they can take them out a couple years later and call it listening to fans.
Did you guys really think they were going to build a brand new engine for this game when zero competition exists?
Just dust off the code from 2006.
Best case scenario is they sell a billion copies and another game studio decides to get involved and make a competing cfb game
I wouldn't expect them to dedicate an entire engine to it even if competition DID exist. I'm sure they are very invested into Frostbite.
They need to build a new engine period
Why not just use 14's?
Pay the teachers
For the record, EA's NCAA game always used to run off a modified version of the previous year's Madden engine. NCAA 12 ran off the Madden 11 engine. Madden 12, which came out a few months later, was supposed to be the "new" game that NCAA 13 ran off of, etc.
Quit running interference for EA or you're going to get my pitchfork in your flank.
This. It was always a modified version of the Madden engine. Not sure why people are melting down over this.
frostbite wasnt used then
I think its not about the fact that its the same engine. Its more because people don't like the Madden one to begin with. That wasn't the case back then.
right, but the expectation should always have been that they were going to port over the madden engine. I was absolutely under the impression that the Madden engine was coming back.
right. I just think just people were holding out hope it was something more ground-up I guess.
Sounds like me hoping the Marlins will actually have competent management. It sounds cool, but the hope is foolish.
I don’t like it, but they are going to make the same amount of sales new engine or not.
What we need is for 2k to get back into football with real rosters so it breeds competition. However, that’s not happening
the only thing that would accomplish is having half the teams in one game and half in the other
2K sucks, man
It didn’t at one time. If you don’t have a product to compete against(like Madden, NCAA) then EA has no reason to invest in a new engine.
do people not keep up with 2k? Aren't they perceived as worse than EA when it comes to micro transactions in NBA? I don't play it but I feel like that's the stuff I see come across gaming media I follow.
different sides of the coin. ea is gacha, 2k is p2w.
Then any gaming company, not 2k. It’s not happening, but EA has no motivation to spend money on a new engine until someone makes an equal or better product in the genre. No one is cutting into their sales at this time.
I don’t play madden anymore but what is so bad with their engine? It may be bad but let’s not forget that NCAA was always worse. It’s like they took the madden engine every year and said let’s make it do even dumber things or act even more outrageous. Just the other day I threw 14 back into the ole 360 and had to turn it off after a few games of Linebackers play like Jalen Ramsey and lineman blocking like a 1st grade flag football team.
2k is worse with micro transactions but they make a far better game
I honestly don't even know if games use engines
That was big of me to admit
95% of them run on diesel
Yer bouta fine out
EA actually TRIED to make a quality product during that stretch. Was watching a video on EA’s MVP Baseball ‘05, and nostalgia-ed hard.
That game had great gameplay, solid season features, fun and original mini-games, and a great soundtrack. I wish they’d just use the same concepts from this game to ‘recreate’ a new one.
Here’s the video I watched. Check out the mini-games at around the 2:30 mark.
All timer right there. Soundtrack was incredible
I had it for PC. The amount of mods and customization you could do was incredible.
huh? Was terrible this year.
I go back and forth. The content is A+++. And gameplay was solid early. Now that we have 125 power guys, everything is a HR. Just played a game, 15 combined hits and 12 were HR. And the fluke stuff is beyond frustrating. Perfect perfect go for outs and early no pci go for HR.
this sounds like a bad game to me
All subjective I guess. The content makes it a good game for me. It's not perfect, but I've played it a ton.
The GOAT. Its hard for me to fathom how many hours of that game I logged
As a hardcore FIFA player, it’s been refreshing and shocking to see how good The Show is and it made me stop playing FIFA much earlier in the cycle than normal
It was very realistic. You could have half your team on steroids.
Blitz The League?
That game was awesome. Ron Mexico forever.
