Madden PC

Well, I thought the game wasn’t coming out for a while, but it said it unlocked on 8/1 at 11AM….so I played it tonight.

It was a lot of fun. The game apparently installs like an Xbox game – it has been at 23% for a while, even after I played the “Play now” game (Jax Vs PHI).

But the game was fun. It was challenging. It made me think, I won the game 13-10 in 2OT.

Uhh…notice anything weird? Yeah, I said double overtime. The 1st OT didn’t have a 2 minute warning and I was like huh? Then I tried a FG as time ran out…of course it got blocked…and then play continued. Weird.

I can’t play with any of the settings yet but I will be soon. I noticed immediate graphical tearing but I don’t think the resolution is optimized on my 4K monitor with GeForce 1080Ti yet.

And who isn’t excited about mods…..

Pre-Load Madden NFL 19 PC Demo NOW

EA has launched Origin Access Premier for PC. The $99.99/annual service includes pretty much every PC game EA is releasing in the past and future, including the soon to be released Madden NFL 19.

If you have Access basic and upgrade, you’ll get a refund on the old one to be applied to the new program.

I signed up because it’s a no brainer. I already made by subscription back by downloading all the Battlefield games and Need for Speed games.

It’s a great deal, and unlike MoviePass, this actually works.

In breaking news that surprises no one, EA has acquired the rights to the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League starting with 18-19 season.

The official release probably won’t come out until after the final, but my sources tell me it’s a done deal.

FIFA 18 gets World Cup Patch – and it’s FREE

Whoa! EA – the king of microtransactions (see Star Wars), has announced the upcoming release of a World Cup patch for FIFA 18. New stadiums, new kits, FIFA WC graphics, and more.

It’s FREE if you have FIFA 18 and comes out at the end of this month. Back in my day you always had to buy this – and it was the price of a new game. Ugh.

So this is cool. You can even play as if the US was in the World Cup. Sigh.

Super Mega Baseball 2 is out today– and FREE

Just a reminder that in an awesome turn of events, Super Mega Baseball 2 today has been released for Xbox. And if you have Xbox Live Gold the game is FREE.

That is awesome. It would be $30. Although I can’t confirm or deny if I’ve been playing it for a while, I can say you would be best in downloading this game immediately.

Wrestlemania 34

If you’ve been alive for 34 years, you can remember when you had to go to some hole in the wall venue to watch Wrestlemania on “closed circuit TV”…..or remember when you had to pay $70 to watch it on Cable Pay Per View…now you get it for $9.95 a month. Kids today don’t realize how good they have it.

Overall I thought the show was equal to the annual hype – with one glaring exception. It was amazing to me that the first match out of the gate was amazing with Seth Rollins winning the IC belt…and even the gimmick matches were fun. The ladies were also impressive (not counting the lame Battle Royale on both genders).

The return of the Undertaker was expected, of course, but you could still get goose bumps. Seeing Daniel Bryan not miss a beat getting back into the action was awesome, and I hope he’s back for a long time.

But for me the one match that sucked was the last one: Brock vs Reigns. It was just terrible. The cool thing is that it will either be edited later or really cut down to avoid having the whole show go to a from TV-PG to TV-MA. Between the f bomb by Brock and the blading by Roman, there’s no way this gets a PG.

Let’s talk about that last match though: Superman Punch. Superman Punch. German Suplex. German Suplex. Superman Punch. German Suplex. F5. F5. German Suplex. Superman Punch. Spear. Spear. F5. Superman Punch. F5. Rinse. Repeat. Just terrible.

And then after Brock wins, they go back and show Roman leaving the ring to his music. Like they wanted the fans to say “good try, good effort.” I think everyone said please turn heel. Even the crowd chanted “this is boring” lol. That was awesome.
