Fuckin hell, I put maybe 3 hours into Madden ultimate team challenges last night to put together a decent squad (a couple mid 90s players and the rest are above 80). I go into a head-to-head matchup.... the opponent has players rated 99 across the board. Ridiculous

There is always some asshole in these games that is max'ed out. I play a lot of Clash of Clans on my phone. I slowly upgrade, but as soon as new levels/updates come out people drop hundreds of $s to max out as quick as possible. I don't get it.

So i see fifa has this too. Everyone plays as one player? Or you just build your own squad?

While cleaning out a drawer I found a Best Buy store credit amongst an army of other unspent gift cards. I figured I should spend that quickly before they go out of business. Picked up 2k for what amounts to free but I have to wait for them to ship it as only the disk version was $30, the digital was still $60. Stupid, but fine I’ll wait rather than pay money.

I like FUT a whole lot better than madden. Madden is a POS game that's not worth the $20 I spent.

TLDR of ultimate team is that you get a starter squad made up of mostly shit players (in the 60s and low 70s overall) from different leagues/nationalities. As you play more you get coins with which you can buy better players and so on. Obv EA put in a thing called FIFA points which let you buy packs of good players.

Players have to have chemistry with each other (same nationality, league, team, or any combo of the 3) to play better. It'd be tough to hop in now near the end of the game's cycle since people have had months to build up their rosters. I'm planning on grabbing the next fifa and going in on FUT. Best game mode in a sports game IMO

I like the story modes and just controlling one player in sports games tbh.

But I don’t really play against other people, i won’t turn up the difficulty, I don’t intend on getting very good at the game, but I will see if I can get my guy to average 50+ ppg when 2k shows up

Too bad, there's a missed marketing opportunity. They need to play up his transgressions in a dark, almost Grand Theft Auto type of way. The game would only loosely revolve around golf, playing a few holes here and there for extra points. Instead, the main objective would be to bang as many skanks as possible, all while scoring the drugs needed to fuel these outlandish, but somewhat true, exploits.

If this were a game I'd most certainly get back into video games. It would be just like living out my wildest fantasies, minus the golf part. I fucking hate golf.

Best Buy usually has like 2 day shipping if the game is close enough. Even if not my shit didn’t take long.

Yeah they were like “you won’t get it until April 29th if you don’t pay for shipping” but I’m assuming I’ll have it by Friday

I threw a TempeTantrum tonight. After watching part of The last Dance he wanted to be the all time Bulls. I said fine I'll be the all time Pistons. Game on. I swear in this game in some games the AI pre determines who is going to win/get all the breaks. I would not even be in traffic, lightly guarded with one of, if not the best ball handlers of all times in Zeke. Stolen. About 5x. Zeke fouled out which I've never ever had happen, and I was not controlling him on defense. I finally lost it with about 2 minutes left down 8 and fucking Billups and Blake Griffin are literally con fabbing at the Bulls FT line while the computer lets him in bound the ball at half court after a time out, resulting in an easy 5-3 dunk. What in the absolute fuck.

MJ clowns everyone in this game. I often deploy the Boeheim zone because my kid is not a good perimeter shooter. So I will take control of a shot blocker down low and use him to double or provide off ball help when he drives. Tailor made against the Bulls, I can deploy Big Ben or Griffin or Lanier and leave Rodman open. Obv Rodman makes jumpers like it's his job tonight and despite perfect timing Jordan dunks over Wallace with zero effort. SMH.

So, did anyone check out the Fortnite Travis Scott concert. It was pretty damn good. They did an excellent job. Not a huge Travis Scott fan, but it was fucking sweet.

Now, back to Borderlands 3. Which combines all the fun of a FPS along with the planning in a RPG.

Encore Saturday at 6 PM.  Epic did a really good job.  It's pure carnage right before it starts but then all weapons are removed.

The idea is something 2 or more of us can play & stream on Discord with audio chat & others can watch/discuss/heckle. Ideally, the game would be free or something people already have/are willing to get. Axis & Allies is $20 on Steam.

Shooting for maybe a Swill virtual happy hour tomorrow around 7pm-ish.

The story part this year was boring and weird but whatever. It’s always more or less the same kind of underdog that has to make it to the nba type of thing. There’s only so many ways to do it.

As far as the game play itself, I prefer it. Managing just one player and playing through the season while making them better is more fun to me than playing with the whole team. I prefer being a center that can just dunk and rebound and block

MyPlayer/MyCareer peaked at 2k16 or 2k17. Wasn't much story then, just post game pressers and the occasional GM sit down. In 2k18, they introduced cutscene and voice acting and the neighborhood. Not my cup of tea, but not the reason I disliked it. At that same time, they also tweaked player progression and the amount of upgrade points you earn for actually playing games, in an obvious move to try to get people to spend more on microtransactions to upgrade their player.

Used to be you could start a guy and be able to actually dribble, pass, and score within a few games. Now, the guys start out so shitty, and you earn so few points for playing games, that it takes fucking forever to get your guy good enough to actually perform dribble moves without losing the ball, or hit an open 3. If I start a guy as a 3 point specialist, it shouldn't take me half a season to get his 3 point rating over 75. And god forbid he be able to also perform a crossover or dunk. No NBA player has ALL those skills, much less a rookie...

Yeah so the trick is to wait until the game is cheap enough to buy plus buy some of the vc to kick start that shit. If I buy the game for $60 then no way. But if I pay $15 for it, plus I’m using a gift card I had long forgot about to buy it anyway- then sure I’ll give you an extra 10 to start out much further ahead

My problem is that I get bored with guys. I used to start a guy, play him until he was good enough to drop 30 a game with regularity, then start a new guy at a different position. I play Skyrim the same way. Start a guy, level up until I can bomb fireballs on a dragon and kill it without taking damage, then start a new guy. I have literally hundreds of hours in Skyrim, and I have no idea how it ends.
