PUBG. Starting to get my PC FPS mojo back and loving the tactical/survival aspect of the game, plays really differently to the other shooters I've played. I need to get another game obsession though that doesn't become unplayably laggy during the evening peak period when everyone's watching Netflix :/

What mode are you jamming?

I've been jamming the Squad Battles.
Managed to pack some alright players for my Premier League squad I'm currently using
Career Mode for me. I played a bit of the Journey, but its a bit too much "Days of our lives" for my liking haha

Thoroughly disappointed.

I mean, the game is ok - but it's basically an online game.

I always loved the career mode in the GT series - get your licence, buy a cheap car, win races, modify it, win more, buy a new car, etc. It was a lot of fun to work hard to amass enough cash to buy a 1 million credit car.

But now...it's just blah.

So disappointed in this game tbh.

What's wrong with it? I was considering jumping back on the Madden series, haven't played since 2014


* AI is awful
* The game "cheats" to make it harder (eg: your RB/WR is in open space, and he will literally start jogging on the spot, not moving at all, to allow the defense to catch up)
* It's got a lot of visual glitches (players phasing through other players, the ball magically teleporting from one hand to the other)
* The game doesn't make it harder by ramping up the intelligence on higher difficulty levels - instead, what it does, is randomly injure your star players
* No Career Mode

Madden 18 is one of he worst in recent times, tbh.

Worst thing that happens to me literally once per game:

I'm on defense.

Opposition QB goes for a scramble. It's 3rd and long.

Opposition QB gets past the line of scrimmage.

My CB just sits beyond the first down marker, staring at the QB, not moving until I manually select him (by which time it's too late, and the QB collects the first down).

Surely the CB would see the QB mice past the line of scrimmage, and then rush to smash the QB?

Nope!

Gee thanks man, sounds like a shocker!

Which most recent Madden would you recommend if I wanted to get back into a long franchise mode? I'm still on ps3 so I'm a bit of a dinosaur :)

Not out yet, so obviously not playing it, but man I'm looking forward to this.


(Game play trailer. Plays like Uncharted from that trailer)

I seen an ad on TV for it and decided I was getting it. Had a look at some youtube footage and seen it was an online game like you say and changed my mind quick.

What a shame.

So on that note, can anyone recommend a good racing game for PS4 that isn't all about online?

It's 100% online.

And thee good old mode, of buying a cheap car, winning races, doing it up, winning money, and buying a better car, is gone.

There's an arcade racer coming soon called wreckfest

I've been early access on it since inception

It'll be a ball to play when they finish it complete with career mode
