    The second roster update of the regular season is now available to download in Madden NFL 18. For a second consecutive week a player that began the season in the 99 Overall club has fallen out of it, with Aaron Donald down 2 points to 97 after returning from his holdout and having little impact in the Rams' loss to the Redskins. The Cowboys take a big hit to the offensive line where Tyron Smith (-5) and Travis Frederick (-4) both have dropped to 89 Overall. The team as a whole had 12 play...

    FIFA 18 can now be downloaded as a timed trial with EA Access on Xbox One and through Origin Access on PC. Subscribers will get 10 hours of playtime with the trial.

    2K Sports has generally been able to sail under the radar as it pertains to the implementation of virtual currency in the NBA 2K series. The company had to course correct following the disastrous NBA 2K14 which was made into an always-online game in order to support a currency system that was weaved throughout all of its modes, but it was the server issues that made the game literally unplayable for weeks at a time that exposed the tactics being employed and making it a story the mainstream ...

    In what amounts to a bounce back year for the NBA 2K series, the latest edition delivers phenomenal gameplay while continuing its place as the most content-rich game in the genre. The new motion system for gameplay, expanded story elements in MyGM, and addition of all-time teams help to take the game to the next level. Note: The ongoing serious situation with deleted MyPlayer characters did not factor into the score, as this is not affecting everyone and will likely be resolved in the nea...

    The good news is that the servers have been performing surprisingly well for NBA 2K18 even under the intense traffic load surrounding release and with multiple online-based modes now merged together to create an open-world "neighborhood." Unfortunately there is one serious issue widespread enough that does have to do with the servers, and that's MyPlayer characters being lost with the corruption of save files. That seems to have been occurring most often after a disconnect that then results ...
