    Local Target had 1 Switch when I stopped by this morning and I really couldn’t resist the allure of portable MyCareer so I grabbed it. Hope The Prelude is also available for the Switch on Friday — can’t wait to dig in.

    when is exactly NBA live 18 and NHL 18 going on EA access pasta? don’t they come out the same week?

    • NHL should be tomorrow (12th is it’s release date for the special edition). NBA Live would then follow 3 days later, though they’ve never done an EA Access trial that hasn’t started on a Wednesday so we’ll see if they don’t just both come out tomorrow or something. EA hasn’t actually announced a date for it.
