That time of the year when all the sports games start to drop.

F1 2017 - Already Purchased
NHL '18 - Pre Order
NBA 2K18 - Xmas Purchase
Madden '18 - Maybe
FIFA '18 - Nope

Anyone else grabbing some sports at some point?

If there's anyone interested in NHL clubs and/or NBA clubs, give me a shout.

Every year I am tempted by NBA2K, gave it a miss last year so prob end up getting that

Madden is class but it's just too hard to play online, the games take ages and I don't know anyone who plays it

Fifa I will be getting - I traded 17 in a few months ago so haven't had a game for a while - the prices this year are a joke though, standard edition is £49.99 and the best preorder price I have seen was £46 ffs

Have you seen much of NBA2k'18?

Have you seen 'The Neighborhood' stuff for NBA? It's unreal. Like GTA meets NBA.

When you get 10 minutes, go check it out on YouTube.

Looks amazing, never seen something like it in a sports game.

i can never remember if NBA is basketball or baseball... :embarrass:

and i've just spent 4 weeks on a boat on The Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland with baseball being the only sport they showed on the TV (with the odd bit of footy news and the F1 was on once), still get confused!

Give the trailers for NHL and NBA 2k18 a watch. Can't wait for them. NHL clubs and NBA 2k18 clubs will be awesome fun with people off here.

Yeah just seen that. Wonder if they'll offer it online for people to print (if they are that fussed).

This has now moved up to day 1 purchase. The whole neighborhood thing is ridiculous. Super excited for it.

That IGN review is pretty much what I have read in a few other reviews. Think I'm going to pass this year.
Similarly, PES 18 hasn't really moved on from last year apart from a few improvements. Looks like I might only get NBA 2K as my sports game this year.

Nothing wrong with an 8.4. 87 on metacritic as well, although it's been somewhat bombed in user reviews.

Shame I don't care about basketball, really.

Not knocking the score, just IGN is a horrendous gaming website. In the backpocket of a good number of large developers.

Didn't even watch it to be honest. :D

Yup. Only downside to the game. Not that you need them really. Pay to skip.

I'm owning 85 rated players with my 74 rated. 8) Makes it sweeter.

Piled on 18 points on the Bucks, coach took me out with 5 mins to go in the game. Ended up losing.

Think I'll be asking for a trade.

Apparently someone on Reddit did the working and you'd need to play something like 200+ games with an A+ rating to afford the upgrades to get to 85 (300 at B+), and that's with no character customisation.

Might be a good sim but that sounds like a tedious grind. The way they've done customisation sounds shit as well, where you can't preview customisation options and they're all single use.

Oh yeah it's a grind, but what game isn't these days.

Don't get the customization thing? You're character literally walks into a changing room to try things on before you buy them.

Maybe the haircuts? But I've not changed my 'fro. I look fresh.

I can see the criticisms like. VC is a bit of a bugger. But seems to be what every sports game is doing these days with Ultimate Teams etc.

Still, gameplay-wise, it's the best sports game I've ever played.

It's haircuts, yeah. And I don't mind all grinding but actively hobbling progression to try and push microtransactions puts me right off a game. Same thing is putting me off Shadow of War, will wait until that's second hand so I'm not supporting it.

And with UT, they created a separate mode for transactions while VC increasingly hobbles modes and progression that were previously un-hobbled.

I know there's been a lot of negativity regarding the micro transactions and the fact a lot of people's my players got wiped a few days ago.

This site gave it 3/10 then took down the score and replaced it a short time later with the same score.

Apparently the publisher got in touch about it, the score was taken down temporarily, it dropped off aggregate sites and then the score went back up on SixthAxis. SixthAxis were then blacklisted. It's all rather classy.
