    I won't say Marvel's Spider-Man is perfect, but it's pretty damn close - brilliant game.

    I love it. So much potential for marvel to branch into the gaming world and make a gaming universe. An open world Ironman would be great! Crafting gadgets and suits, also an avengers game is in development

    A Thor game would be brilliant, too, using the mythos behind the characters.

    Starting Dark Souls III on PC.

    I’ve heard it’s a hard game to play but I’ve had it for so long that ive not had the time to commit to it.

    Worked asked me to use annual leave I had accrued so the next week or so will be gaming, hunting and sleeping.

    Just started playing the golf club 2019. Just starting to get the hang of the controls but still struggling with the putting. The graphics are amazing compared to the earlier golf games I used to play on Tiger Woods EA sports.

    Rotating between MLB The Show 18, Uncharted 4, and Elders Scroll Online Summerset. UC4 is such a beautiful game from a graphics perspective

    I ripped through the O-line as Mack, and hit Brady, twice in the same game (nobody was around).

    The first time, Brady shrugged off the hit like he was the Hulk, and threw a 30 yard pass.

    The second time, the collision detection glitched, and Mack phased right through Brady.

    For a so-called AAA sports title with a massive budget, it's hot garbage.

    Indeed sir, it is.

    So I looked up some advice on adjusting the gameplay sliders, along with the extra caveat of reducing the INT's, first thing I read said that you could basically drop sliders down to zero, and you will still get picked off if you dare go deep.

    I don't want to completely cut them out of the game, just reduce them to an acceptable level. In my career (franchise) I'm a rookie QB, therefore I expect to get picked off, but 5 a game on 8 minute quarters?

    I'm jelly

    Played 17 from release til my PS4 decided it had had enough, which was right before 18 was released.

    I'll get another one soon enough. Is 18 better than 17?

    It’s different. I play Road to the Show mostly. In 17, you could max out your player skills and become a dominant broheim. In 18, you pick a player archetype. For me, I’m playing as a short stop with the Wizard player type. Means my hard cap on fielding, reaction, arm accuracy are 99 (still you will have soft caps of day 80 that you need to train to get the soft cap moving towards the hard cap). But my hard cap for power iirc is only 70. Still, at 70 in my rookie year in the big leagues I got 14 homers, but my main focus was getting on base.

    The way you skill up is execution. For example, you improve plate discipline if you lay off a ball pitch. But, if you strike out the discipline rating regresses. If I pop up my contact rating goes down. But if I pick the right pitch and time it right I will increase my contact.

    So you’re rewarded for your in game performance which I like. That’s the biggest change I see. Graphically etc it is the same as 17.
