The Best OG Maddens, Madden 22 Impressions + the Sports Gaming News of the Week – ASK Episode #2

[Music] hello everybody and welcome to adult sports kid i am your host jason paul thank you so much for finding us wherever and however you did how’s everyone doing i gotta me how i’m doing i got i got a band-aid on my nose for a pimple that bust i’m i’m spiraling folks but le it’s not going to stop me it’s not going to stop me from doing another episode of adult sports kid it’s certainly not on this week not this week when madden comes out if you’re listening to this today’s podcast comes up that means madden’s out so happy madden release day i hate that term matt and holiday they used to co-op for marketing purposes hate that but happy madden release day i know for a lot of us um madden’s a very important game that madden’s very special madden holds a certain place in our heart and that’s why last episode i expressed so much effusive praise for the game that i think we may be getting this year and i’ll go over the impressions i have as i’ve done a bit of the ea play trial and i’ll be purchasing the full edition but i wanted to start today on madden memories your matted memories my matted memories and feel free to share comment um share any post about this podcast and and comment with your madden memories because this is very important we’re at a time now where madden’s in a different place right like we’ve rewind 15 years and in terms of sports gaming madden is the zeitgeist madden’s the north star madden sells all of the copies madden really was something that everybody who was in the sports participated in at least for growing up that’s what it felt like it felt like everybody was on board if you were a football fan you were getting madden you were playing franchise mode you were playing against people head to head online we didn’t have ultimate team we did it madden cards way back in like madden oh 203. now those cards are cool we might get a little bit to that so i want to talk about my madden origin story how did i find it what games are special in the series to me and maybe we’ll come across some features that we’d like to see put back in the game and god knows there’s plenty of those so i’m going to take you back my first madden game is a weird one i’d say for most compared to most people my first madden game was on the n64 my first madden game was on the n64 was entitled madden football 64. of course if you remember when the n64 came out many of the games on the n64 were just a name n64 at the end for marketing purposes uh you know super mario 64 mario kart 64. and so ea went on that train now the crazy thing about madden 64 and i do have the madden wiki open just so i can easily navigate so madden 64 was special because it didn’t have a full nfl license i don’t know how off that probably didn’t happen since early in madden’s day on on the genesis but it had no nfl license it had an nfl players association license but no license for the nfl teams so i vividly remember playing philadelphia versus green bay and the colors look like the eagles colors the colors for green bay look like the packers colors but nowhere where was packers said was eagle said none of the fans wearing any uh the logo paraphernalia no logo on the field at all it was a very odd game but i enjoyed it i enjoyed it quite a bit i’m gonna look um let me try to find some i wanna i just gotta i’m just for myself i gotta see some screenshots of this because as will as you know what i mean as i look at the screens for this very very you know rough it supposedly had a very short development cycle this game very rough but you know lambo kind of looked like lambo that’s i played a lot with the packers then because of brett favre’s dominance uh so i i it always seemed pretty real to me but then again when you’re that age it all you know will seem more realistic than what we just saw on the genesis even if now those graphics sort of age poorly if we’re being honest i think the n64 playstation era polygonal graphics look pretty wretched at this point um and this game came out october 31st 1997 this was a pull it was a polygonal football game but not the first that would go to nfl game did 98 now i’m going to do a whole part of an episode on nfl game day 98 due to that game’s place in my heart but this game too i mean this was one of the first nfl games i had that really really made me a football fan i don’t know how much this resonates with everybody else but for me i learned a lot about football through madden if i was to just grow up and just watch football i would never have had as high of a comprehension in terms of formations uh strategy like i did because i played madden and this started all i mean i i i remember and maybe it’s my mind being uh a little too nostalgic but i remember learning nickel versus dime talking to my dad playing with him playing this game and and learning all right nickel or you know more of a second down package dime on a third down and long package so it was great um i it was it was a fantastic game it was and it was a really fantastic first matted entry to me especially on an n64 that wasn’t known for its sports games it had a few and for a sports fanatic like myself growing up finding madden 64 was a godsend so i loved that game i kept playing madden the next year matt in 99 i got madden 99 for playstation by then it was clear to me even then in the year you know 98 99 i was like all right the playstation’s where i want more sports games and a lot of it was probably that the video intro that you got on the playstation right like that was there so it seemed a little more i don’t know like it native to the system even though some sports games in that era on the n64 i think had better graphics namely one that comes to mind is nhl 99 i think looked really sharp on the n64 and didn’t look as great on the playstation but generally i moved to sports gaming on the playstation that was even more accentuated when dual shocks came out dual shot controller came out and then when we get to ps2 and that’s the next game i want to hone in on madden nfl 2001 now i was lucky enough to get a i was a spoiled child there’s no way i can say this any other way but i got a playstation 2 pretty quickly after it launched and it is amazing how good matt in 2001 was immediately and i don’t know how to stress that enough it was the the engine that was first released in the madden one 991 played a lot like madden 2005 or 2004 which are you know regarded as the best of the best maddens right like the ones we’re super nostalgic over but it’s amazing how much that engine sort of just worked from the jump like it was mad 2001 was a great game to play now we didn’t have as many features around franchise mode and mounted 2001 and i’m gonna click on this on the wikipedia right now just to see let’s see what it did have a franchise mode according this wikipedia entry which i did not remember but so it was there like they knew what they were doing and i you you start a series as well as madden did here and it was only going up and i know last episode i talked to you about like three-year plans in sports games you hear about those and you hear about that with the franchise mode with the newest matted and these little features they’re planning on adding year by year and now even month by month because of downloadable content and updates but back then obviously was released that’s what you got and madden 2001 to me is a classic as we move on madden 2002 great game played the heck out of it a lot like a one nothing really setting it apart except that was the first year with ncaa football 2002 that you could transfer draft classes so that also holds a big place in my heart created myself i think it was either me my dad or my dad and i for being proper about grammar created ourselves i think we played for florida or florida state won the n nati move on put our guys to madden my dad get drafted for the for the for the expansion texans i think i go to the jags it was a fun time mad in 2003 very important game that was the first man i ever played online against people and that was sort of a revelation i don’t know if you’re not old enough to have experienced both ends of the gaming spectrum whereas like pre-console games being online to after console games being online madden 2003 was it was it was a revelation right because you you before that your your world’s smaller right like you can be the best madame play in your neighborhood that was like what the top could be maybe the best madame player with your friends on a basketball team right it was a small group but as soon as we opened up to the world you got to see how crap you actually were and that for me i not as good on the sticks there not as good at all but madame taylor’s three such a good entry in the series so much fun a great cover athlete and marshall an iconic cover with the with the gold dirt the gold and blue jerseys it was it was a great great game but that pales in comparison to matano four and for me madden 04 was what i remember most about it was the hype i think a lot of people are gonna be like well that was the year mike vick was unstoppable and i think that’s true but for me it was the first year i was i was so ready for it because of owner mode hearing about that for a franchise head like myself at that age i think i was you know in eighth grade going into there’s nothing you you that game was made for me it was made for me that’s what it was it was here you go jason here’s exactly what you want you want to control every aspect of your team and i did and i in my head i would come up with scenarios months before the game came out of where i’d relocate somebody or whose jersey i’d sell what team i would take over it was the hype for me is what kept it what still keeps this game in such a high regard because let’s be honest a lot of times our hype and anticipation is better than actually getting the thing right like that’s something you hear all the time and it’s true it’s certainly true with madden because some years matter is not great but this was a this is a case where the hype the hype was real the hype was good and then the game was good it followed through and that’s when we were in a special place we were at four straight maddens on that generation of console that just slapped they were great it was universal you could pick up and play with somebody who wasn’t a football fan it was just it was again a special game and i don’t know if we’re gonna see a run like this ever again when it comes to especially madden you know what with the with the focus being on ultimate team and career modes there’s just nothing to substitute the first time you touch an owner mode the first time you use mike vick and and he’s direct around your blockers the hot routes added to that game it was really to this day i’m nostalgic for it because when i play madden now i want it to be that easy to hit down on the thumbstick and on the right joystick and then you’re you’re you’re being prepared for a run or you head up and you’re prepared for a pass or you’re directing your blockers or usually hot route or usually hot double team somebody this is what i miss it’s what i’m still nostalgic for it’s why people go back and play these games it’s why people like me just say hey do me a favor developers can you just sit down and play madden 04 just play it and then try to translate as much as the feelings you get from that as possible into the current current gen now i’m being listen i’m being a little aggressive here the the the new matter has been isn’t technically out yet as i record this full disclosure on a thursday but that is what we’re comparing against matano four’s the north star it truly is that is until i think about madden o5 another special madden game a game that at the time 100 listen if he had if he gave me the choice nfl 2k5 or madden 05 i would go nfl 2k5 i think nfl 2k5 is the greatest football game i’ve ever played but nfl 2k5’s franchise mode was not as excellent as madden 2005’s franchise mode and madden 2005 emphasis on defense really was not seen before in a football game a simulation football game where it’s like hey we need to one give the cover to a defensive player that was you know a new thing for ea brian urlacher was on the cover of nfl 2k 3 if i’m not mistaken but amanda has a 5 as a ray lewis on the cover uh a cheaper price point because of nfl 2k5’s aggressive pricing strategy and the introduction of the hit stick something that’s still in the game today something that’s second nature to most people who play football video games is flicking that stick and trying to get the biggest hit you can sorry for popping the mic there i did it for emphasis you could create a fan in that game isn’t that crazy that’s when it went a little even i didn’t create a fan i was like i don’t need to create a fan the fans are there that’s cool i don’t need to create the fan and then as we keep going madden 06 another to me the last holy grail mountain the la i mean this run was it from madden on one the madness six that’s a hell of a run it improves and improves and improves and madden on six you can kind of feel them reaching right but their heads in the right place so madden 006 is big addition gameplay wise is the cone the vision cone for quarterbacks and i understand why they did it right because you have to separate good quarterbacks and bad quarterbacks a quarterback like donald mcnabb the cover athlete of madden 06 can seem is going to perform better than you know a scrub third quarterback on the roster and they found that listen that awareness rating that they have in the game is great for when the cp when the cpu is playing but when you’re on the sticks when you’re controlling the quarterback you need to be able to simulate you’re playing with a crappy quarterback and this i still think is the closest we ever got to that simulation i’m not sure exactly why it was um not emphasized i think what my guess is in the fiasco of the next gen mad in that year and that matano 6 on xbox 360. let’s be clear is probably one of its top three crappiest madden let’s be honest i look i haven’t played all the recent maddens because of their reputation for poor quality but i will certainly say in my opinion of the maddens i played some of the least fun time i had but on that on the playstation 2 generation on the gamecube generation madden 06 was fantastic and the vision cone was a good step in the right direction and it’s sad to see it not only not resurrected recently but not really it’s still a problem to this day that you can control a bad quarterback and do good with them d with your stick skills and we haven’t added a gameplay mechanic to sort of add as act as the middle man there right like instead of oh i hit circle to throw this receiver and it just floats for no reason the vision cone was a perfect middle ground there where it’s a it’s a visual ui indicator and gameplay mechanic that plays into your decision making and how well you’re gonna do it’s not a background calculation that’s done it’s okay that throw was missed why was that throw miss well i wasn’t looking at the guy that’s why and then you play with a tom brady and the vision codes damn vision cone is damn near the whole field that was great and that generation of madden is truly just fantastic like i said madden nfl 2001 to o6 unassailable a run of games that is truly unassailable especially for a sport like football and i’d argue those are on a game is what solidify madden to the place it is today those run of games kept madden’s prestige high wouldn’t even when it shouldn’t have been when matano six should have been a wake-up call because madden was six on xbox 360. like i said was a piece of crap and it’s hard to look at the same company that developed mana 2001 on a new console and it seemed like a mature engine that had been there for years but madden o6 nearly the same release a little more time i think xbox 360 was released later maybe it was around the same maybe it was the same week i know north american release for ps2 was end of october it was around the same time for xbox 360 and just didn’t cut it did an amazing trailer never forget during the draft of that year using not in game footage to you know to hype up the marketing and this is the first time i think the general public’s like all right now we’re not talking game footage and commercials now we have to be wary so after madden 06 i look for what madden games resonate with me and it’s it’s not good it’s truly i i i don’t have great memories with many past this i think which one is this um let me look madden 10 discipline i remember the disappointment for madden 10 i would say i think i enjoyed a peyton hills cover madden 12. i think i enjoyed it but it doesn’t stick with me and to me that’s a problem when i was telling you listen i’m going to go through the the madden games that are most important to me and it’s truly one generation you know if i had to cut out madden 64 you cut that out that was like okay welcome the football kid but then a generation of classics to be followed up with mediocrity that we have it’s tough it’s not great but it’s where we’re at right so i think that’s a good segue to talk about mountain 22. impressions of madden 2 22 so far be honest i enjoy it i don’t think it’s a perfect game of football i think bad at 06 played better i think that air is on the ps2 still better overall playing game but i think the graphics are good the graphics are next gen graphics i feel i truly feel that um the control and the animations i don’t feel that stuck in animations i feel i have control of quarterbacks in a way i haven’t before uh when you’re using an agile quarterback i do feel like they’re more agile i don’t hate the x factor i hadn’t played a madden game with the x factors and i think with ea you have to sort of be careful when they add those abilities to individual players because i think the first year they always go overboard on it right because the first year it’s a gimmick so they want you to get the game and buy it for the gimmick and then really feel the gimmick but i feel like it it makes players as solid as they should be like for example i was playing on pro just to get my you know my my feet under me just get my c legs so to speak and aaron donald was dominating the game and that’s what i like to see i like the feel when i’m playing against a team with a superstar that that guy’s going to make an impact and i’m going to have to worry about him and i do feel like that imagine listen i’m seven hours in this can i tell you there’s problems there’s a lot of problems uh there’s barely any penalties i don’t think zone coverage works um i think the offensive lines on teams are a little too good i think we’re in a good place actually as i was talking about the vision cone earlier and making bad quarterbacks for his good quarterbacks i think when there’s pressure on a quarterback amount it’s fairly realistic playing on all pro or like it’s easier to sail it you know have an off um just an off target pass hit hit the ground a la donna mcnabb before it gets to the receiver but i just don’t feel that the pressure happens enough and i feel like it’s pretty difficult to play as a defensive lineman now if you were to ask me would you rather have that or you know a madden from you know that was madden 005 it’s pretty easy to play with the defensive lineman i remember in nfl 2k5 the switch series briefly i would set the record for sax every year if i played with like one d-linemen throughout the game so if i had to choose harder to sack or or easier i would choose harder and so i might mess with sliders as i get deeper into it but we’ll see it but it’s fun and that’s all i can ask because honestly as i get older i just want to have a fun game of football that plays fairly realistically i’ve played some head to heads that have been awesome i’ve started a franchise it’s been pretty fun i’m gonna try more of the yard if any of you are interested in hanging out playing mad and talking madden please subscribe to my twitch at jaypal1723 that’s at jaypal1723 i should be twitch streaming this weekend some madden franchise maybe the yard maybe a little head-to-head maybe a little bit of everything so i’m looking forward to diving in more is it worth the 70 bucks i don’t know am i just chasing nostalgia i’m not sure yet maybe i’m a fool for buying in but like i said last week i truly appreciate they seem to have a vision for franchise mode my early impressions of the coaching points is like i wish you couldn’t buy them with the pre-order bonus but i get it listen it’s we’re in 2021 it’s part of the game is pre-ordering a game and getting something for it i don’t know if i’ll add those into my particular franchise mode but i’m enjoying it so far i love that coordinators are back i love that what you do in the field can affect how good a coordinator can be and i can’t wait to get to an offseason to see how the coaching carousel plays out i’m also you know warming up to the xp that you can add to your players is it if i was designing a game from the ground up is that how i’d make it no but it’s okay that madden did it this way and it’s a design design decision like i said last week that i think’s more palatable with a football game i truly do i think it’s way more palatable with the football game because you see football players have you know breakout years out of nowhere that’s going to happen so if i’m playing well with the guy i want to level him up i want to get his rating up there i want his rating to you know sort of mirror how well he is on the field so i’m warming up to it am i being a little easy on it probably am i going to find a lot of issues with it probably will am i gonna try to stay away from quote-unquote game-breaking bugs in franchise mode that other people find on operation sports i’m gonna that’s another thing i’ve learned as i get older i can’t obsess over every small bug in a franchise mode i just can’t it’s not gonna make it fun for me so i gotta try to keep this game as fun as possible sounds a little sad when i put it that way but i’m just happy that madden seems to play good this year that it looks good and then we can have fun with it again because if we you know foster some sort of cool community here at adult sports kid i think we could have online franchise modes and i think that could be where the fun is really had because i’ve had fun with head-to-head games this so far so that’s where i’ll leave you with current madden impressions i will probably have a buddy or two on in the coming weeks to discuss what they like about this year’s madden what they don’t and i don’t know if i’ll ever do a formal review so to speak but i’ll help you update you guys as as i play more right now would i recommend you buy it no but i’d recommend you get the ea play trial and that’s something i will patty on the back for those ea play trials are fantastic give people a chance to play the game and if they like it they’ll buy it so i i encourage everyone to sign up for ea play it’s only five dollars a month or thirty dollars for the year and if you do five dollars for the month it’s great you get uh for ps5 was seven dollars off the games price so you still come out ahead so that’s what i did um again i urge you to follow me on twitch at jaypal1723 but right now let’s look at the news all right the news for this week let’s talk about it first story comes from operation sports published by steve noah the writers republic beta arrives on august 23rd register now you can still register for riders republic um i can click on this register here link and let me just double check that this isn’t closed it looks yep looks good to me so you can play from august 23rd to august 25th i’ve also read that you can invite two friends i encourage everybody to participate in betas like these it’s cool one to play games that aren’t released we released yet into you can provide valuable feedback so anyone who’s worked in the world of software development nodes you need this feedback you need to get this in front of as many users as possible so i’m hoping ubisoft’s writer’s republic it’s a good sign you know even though they’re delayed a few months that there’s getting in people’s hands this summer and that if it releases two months later and it’s good form it could be a fun game like i said we have a void in extreme and action sports games and this one looks like a sort of fill a lot of voids with all different sports you can do so i did want to mention that that you can still get on the beta and i encourage you to next article comes from sports gamers online big shout out to sports gamers online love a lot of their website my god they put up great store sports store sports gaming story and really center zone that’s the sports gamer so i encourage you to visit there daily so this story is is entitled exclusive details behind decisions made with nascar 21 ignition this is written by michael straw when nascar 21 ignition was announced last week it brought a lot of excitement to the nascar gaming community side note we we talked about the trailer last week on the show so go back to last week if you want to hear my thoughts on trailer fans go there i can i can edit for this website it says fans go their first look fans got their first look it should be on the game running an unreal engine and got a lot of details regarding what they’ll be able to do within it this is of course where a number of questions came about the two biggest being platform and a lack of series within the game so as we mentioned last week not on the next gen consoles not a killer for me but i don’t think it’s a great look right because as i said i think nascar heat series was a solid series and it’s really unfortunate they feel like i guess that they maxed out the engine because switching over to a new engine you’re gonna have sacrifices right and these sacrifices are pretty big um a next-gen truly next-gen nascar game would have my attention this is starting with its hand a hand tied behind its back because of this and then two it’s missing both the xfinity series and camping world truck series to me that’s more inexcusable it doesn’t sound like you’re ready if you’re missing those things the nascar heat games were a fun offered a fun career mode although it was pretty bare bones in terms of you know cut scenes and elaborate storyline but what it was big in in you could start from the bottom you can start from the truck series and work your way up and that’s what i enjoy doing and to have only one series in a nascar game it looks like what it is it looks like a first effort so as you switch to a new engine and you’re building this foundation again i think we’re looking at a couple years away from a fully a title that’s gonna have feature parity with the game we just saw a year ago and that’s tough that’s tough not to have parody with a game you had that you released a year ago you just don’t have that and listen if you’re a nascar fan you’re gonna have to live with this we’re in the world of uh you know post nfl 2k5 where most sports have one game that caters to them so i feel for hardcore nascar fans especially ones that are fans of those lower series because it’s not just you know it’s not just a step up to nascar you’re racing different vehicles especially when it comes to the truck series right it’s not just hey we’re missing double a baseball on mlb the show we’re missing all different type of you know of nascar series i don’t know if that was a good that was a terrible analogy baseball looking back but you get what i’m saying you’re a smart listener so far from my deal for nascar uh those two decisions though seem to trace back based off this article to the unreal engine and the introduction of it and on that note we have another engine based uh article from again from sports gamers online this article is from curtis russell e football producer interview and details e-football is what pro evolution soccer is now called e-football is what winning 11 soccer used to be or is now called because pro evo used to be winning 11 here in the states and they too have changed their engine to the unreal engine now they’re being a little more optimistic and and they’re trying to achieve quite a bit this year because not only are they changing engines they’re changing game structure the innovation in e-football as we’ll read in this article um let’s see if i can find e football going free to play yes you heard me right we have a free to play major sports game with major license the decision to go free to play inspired konami to create a cross-platform esports scene to do this konami wanted to fuse its two audiences together japan’s winning 11 and e football ps bringing both names into one would help konami from a business aspect now i don’t know what sort of you know reasoning that is i think this is clearly you know they think hey get this game into many people’s hands as possible and they’ll pay for upgrades now it seems like what the upgrades are going to be is you can pay to play modes so master league is their career mode analogous to fifa’s career mode and so you’d pay to play that now there are going to be some games or some features that are free like play now i imagine and maybe the card collecting game will start free we don’t have too many details so to me this is a very i think this is an interesting thing i i think you can read this a couple different ways one you can read it well they’re going to a new engine it seems awfully optimistic they know what they’re doing uh they’re confident because they’re gonna put in everyone’s hands and everyone’s gonna love it and pay for these extra modes and pay to keep playing or you can say well this is konami who’s in a weird state right now who makes a lot of money off of slot machines in japan and really have abandoned console gaming you know you would think there’d be a new metal gear solid by now even without kojima as it’s one of their biggest franchises and maybe this is a last-ditch effort last year they uh they there was a free-to-play version of pes but it was just exhibition games and you’d pay to upgrade to the full version this is going to be more a la carte now this isn’t the first time this has been done in sports games flight night champions did this i believe back in the early 2010s where you could buy the career mode separately but in terms of a modern landscape for new consoles this is this is going to be very interesting this is a i i’m going to try the game so they got that going for it right the free to play is going to get me in but it’s is everything else going to hold up is this engine ready this is the first year we’re doing this engine and the other thing to note is this is cross-platform and it’s not just cross-platform ps5 versus ps4 although you can do that you knew ps5 versus mobile phones yes you heard me right mobile devices to me that’s wild that’s that that’s some of the biggest news around e-football is you’re gonna be able to play from a ps5 to a mobile phone does not sound like a very sound technical decision to me to have everybody play on an engine that must be simplified or dumbed down for a phone and that rolls into our next article well what about the visuals you may ask well according to operation sports article e-football next-gen visuals will feature major upgrades by kevin groves konami’s heard people who who are worried about this because when it first came out you’re playing on a mobile phone it makes no sense so people worried initially well you’re gonna the base game is gonna have to be the one that’s the the lowest res right like you’re not gonna wanna you can’t dumb down a ps5 game to a iphone but apparently in konami you can and if you’re gonna have cross platform play you’re gonna have to so this is gonna be very interesting um all right in this article the latest e football information comes courtesy of senior producer sitaro kimura he sat down with tech radar’s adam visteka to go over all things e football um a lot of people disappointed in the trailer that look quite ugly however the let me see also note that e-football won’t be available in 120 hertz a major selling point for these next-gen consoles let me read so it basically this article is meant to at least or the comments that are referenced in this article from the uh purdue senior producer at konami is meant to say hey like we are going to have next-gen visuals but i don’t think we’ve as a public seen that the trailer people did not enjoy uh some calling in this article to quote our expectation abroad our expectations abruptly u-turned once we set our eyes on the reveal trailer because the graphics look to be noticeably scaled down and just downright ugly a very tough roll out for this um they’re assuring us that they will have next-gen visuals i remain skeptical due to this cross-platform play i remain skeptical due to a new engine being built from the you know using unreal engine and then giving it to a phone and a ps5 this it doesn’t seem something seems off with this my spidey senses are tingling but the good news with this one free to play right all right moving on to the next new next news item something about next gen visuals in fact from operation sports courtesy of steve noah playstation 5 players are getting a new video quality setting in rocket league today that was august 18th to do 120 frames per second finally the xbox series x got this upgrade last december it’s one of my biggest pain points that the ps5 was seeing games like i think rocket league got this rec fest i think got it before ps5 a lot uh ufc 4 got uh increased frame rates i i really don’t like not seeing those role at the same time as a jealous playstation player but it’s good to see it’s happening rocket league a game that’s really about the frames i’m terrible at it to be quite frank because of just i don’t know trust me it’s not because it’s not running 120 frames per second it’s one was me in rocket league it feels odd to try to hit something in a car right most games you’re trying to avoid objects when you’re driving a car and two it moves quick it’s a quick moving game there’s wall scaling there’s jumps and for an uncoordinated individual like myself it i’m not great at it but it’s a fun play and anything to make it look prettier i’ll definitely give this a go uh i think my tv can handle i don’t it obviously i think it can handle uh one 1080p in 120 frames per second so maybe i’ll give that a shot but i do want to let people know that that is available rocket league also free to play now uh very a big success story in gaming when it comes to that our final story was the nhl 22 trailer came out today uh august the 19th big news from that austin matthews is on the cover it comes out mid december or mid october i should say as you hear the trailer start in the background um i’m gonna try to get you all oops let me open up the pre-order page excuse those sounds um october 15th the date it is coming out to on playstation 5 and xbox series x the trailer if you watch it i like the trailer it it was fine listen it’s sport again matano 6 for xbox 360 ruined sports gaming trailers i no longer trust them i’m going to be honest i don’t trust them anymore but this one looks nice looks from screenshots and this trailer i saw looks next-gen enough i enjoyed nhl the last one i played was on angel 20 had a good time with it especially online playing ea shl i don’t think i’m going to run out and grab this but listen if it’s a solid nection hockey experience it’s why you get ea play right play a few months down the road play it maybe when it gets on sale for uh black friday so a lot of options it looks cool i was a little worried it wasn’t coming to ps5 or xbox series x because the end of the trailer didn’t denote any consoles and it was also an xbox branded trailer i was sort of ruminating on the possibility actually and and i wonder if this would ever become a uh a reality is that you have xbox of course you have ea play as part of xbox game spas also part of xbox games pass what was the big game this past spring that used to be a sony exclusive mlb the show was a part of xbox games pass i could see one day i really could see this nhl 22 being lumped in the ea play as part of your membership and being played on games pass i think as you look at nhl 22 has a low comparing to madden compared to fifa it has a lower install base than either of those games by far you know i think a game like nhl 22 and uh and hockey in general though ken reached casuals we saw that with nhl 94 for god’s sakes you know that game’s 25 years old now and people still talk about it so i’m very interested in the new nhl didn’t get too much info uh rumors were they were updating their engine as well so we’ll see if that happens the biggest thing is the arrival of superstar x factors to mirror the the abilities that madden introduce to their players we’ll see how big of a factor that is like i said i worry the first year these x factors are launched it’s going to be gimmicky and be overpowered but we’ll have to wait and see for that game to come out so that’ll do it for the news for today i appreciate everyone who’s listening i encourage you to follow us on twitter at adult sports kid follow us on instagram adult sports kid
