Ark is fun, those as someone who's getting old and I just don't have that much time, it's excellent Youtube content.

My computer can't even run Skyrim, so I'll definitely be in the same boat ... I really need to get a dedicated graphics card one of these days.

disappointed with NHL reviews. Game doesnt look much different but at the same time madden 17 didnt add too much but improved the small thing. Feels like a different game though

Which is precisely why EA's roster need so much updating. It's always like a full day's work before you can properly start a GM mode

I don't see an NHLPA logo on its web page -- does that mean the actual players aren't in there?

Also, "Eastside" is a sodding fake, SEGA Europe's address is obviously the west end of London.

The default game does not include real NHL players, but you can easily download two files from a third party website that adds in real NHL players with way better player ratings than EA. The second file you can download includes photos of players and logo images.

Totally, but that shouldn't be the case. I think part of it is that:
1) they don't want to spend the money to improve it
2) because everyone buys next years copy expecting the players to be more accurately rated. And for the most part they are, because its a year newer and the breakout players have been accounted for.

Sometimes I'll manually fix an Oiler or two, but EA are so far off with so many players it undermines the entire game.

Interesting, I'll have to keep an eye on this. I grabbed the 20-game Sierra games Humble Bundle a couple of days ago along with a free copy of Tropico 4, so my "to-play" queue is full at the moment...

Been playing franchise mode. I editted some Oilers. Mainly bumped up McDavid, Klefbomb, Larsson, Draitsatl, etc to where I think they should be.

I think now in season 3, McDavid is about a 95 overall. Yet he still puts up like 60 points over 80 games. It always feels like when it comes to the Oilers, EA makes it bleh. As mentioned above, ratings in this game sucks. So many players just feel like they copied the stats.

Like McDavid's speed is like 91/99. Draitsatls passing is like 85.

Give me a break lol

Well that's no small endorsement, I wonder if it really is that good, or if it remain that good once it's localized.

As a fan of JRPGs (mostly the FF and Mother series) I can see the appeal of the Persona games but I wonder if they really have that widespread appeal in the West because they are... well, very Japanese.

My understanding (I also fall under the JRPG fan, still love FF2/4, can play it like it's new whenever) is that it is actually really big over here, the other Persona's are very well loved and purchased games.

That is true, P3/4 are very popular.

Also FF4 is my favourite Final Fantasy, good choice!

No doubt. I loved playing Persona 4, it was a perfect Vita game to play during one year I was watching playoffs at the same time. It was like you said, very Japanese. Not like Gravity Rush where I had no idea what the hell any of it meant or what was going on, but I can see why the masses would hate something like Persona as well.

It's all... odd. Yet satisfyingly fun to just go day to day.

The game is the same old garbage, with a new draft champions mode that gets old quick as soon as you see what a grind it is. New menu fonts and colours, game itself is the same every player is rated the same trash it always has been.

Played it for the first two days on release, then took it out to play something else with my kid. Haven't felt any desire to put it back in in the last 14 days. That's messed up, I should probably just go trade it in while it still has $50 value and get something back out of it. Take a $30 loss and call it a day until it's in the bargain bin by Christmas.

FIFA sells like 20million copies a year.
NHL sells like 400k.


There's a monetary reason why they can spend a lot more on FIFA scouts.

FIFA is also way better.

I'm a hockey fan first and a football fan second but you can tell the amount of money they pour into FIFA in comparsion. That being said, for what the NHL series has to work with, they do a good job for the most part though they have gotten complacent recently over not having any competition IMO.
