You have a nice list of ideas, but I'll never play any of them until offline single-player returns.

I really like some of your ideas on how to improve the mycareer mode. I myself have been lobbying to return to the draft combine as it just feels more authentic. However, the casual gamer wants to just get in and out as quick as possible, and companies always seem to target the casuals. And by the way the reason we do not see draft day trades is because the draft and career mode is tied to the actual current rookie class and where they were selected.

SHAKYR on April 20, 2014 at 07:38 AM.I love my sports games as sim as possible with detailed options to customize my gameplay and experience.

headzapp on April 18, 2014 at 03:39 PM.Maybe have it when you are in the settings to start a game it's set to the default "the show" settings, and have an option to set it to "arcade" settings.
In nhl games i always tweak the settings to make it play like real hockey, and in the playoffs I turn the penalties down.
I'm not sure many people know that you can edit the gameplay settings to your liking, because I see reviews where people complain about sports games being too easy or hard, or the defence does this or that.
I personally want the closest to realism as I can get in sports games. That a big reason why I love the show. I played a friends 2k series before for the mlb and nhl and it's just not my thing.

Da_Czar on April 18, 2014 at 02:28 AM.I have zero problems with shipping a more casual version of the game on default settings. But when you click that Simulation setting button it should be on and poppin.

tril on April 17, 2014 at 09:05 AM.agreed. except for the part that says casual people have the ability to set sliders and difficulty.
casual fans wont take the time to adjust sliders, that is why the games are shipped with a very liberal/casual default setting.
its the hard core sim heads that will adjust sliders.

I like the idea of an account
TheRealHST on April 16, 2014 at 07:34 PM.They can have the best of best both worlds. Make a game with a gamemode for causal people. Causal people also have the ability to set sliders and difficulty
I think they deserve some money if they are generating a lot of revenue from jerseys and other apparel along with video games. Many students receive scholarships to attend a university and there aren't any rules against those students accepting money, gifts, or making money off of their knowledge. I think it should work both ways and athletes should be compensated. Maybe an account is set up and after they decide to go to the pros or graduate they are given control of the account?

... Video game wise I always take the Raiders regardless but to label some a possible bust because of a disappointing rookie season is not smart. Drew Brees had a crappy rookie season and seems to have turned in a good NFL career.

hey does anyone use these and whats the result?
I agree, I just didn't think QB would be a huge priority. Derek Carr would be available in the 2nd or Logan Thomas. Sammy seems like a perfect fit, he could play slot til Andre retires and he and Hopkins would be a 1-2 punch. Joseph is also getting up their in age, and he had 2 horrendous games against the Jaguars

Next matchup: Florida/Miami Marlins and Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays.
I'm hoping to get back into the groove of things, as I have taken an exceptionally long break from posting.
@poloelite: Yea, but I just can't see them taking Manziel. Bridgewater is a potential beast, that had a bad pro day. I just see Jacksonville looking more at the stats than the pro day.
Jake Matthews is considered not to be the top OT in the draft, as that belongs to Greg Robinson, IMO. With the exception of the Rams, none of the T5 teams have serious O-Line problems, or just need a quarterback more than an OT.

I don't see jake falling to Tampa I'm a huge Tampa fan and I live in GA and all the hype is towards Jake Mathews. Falcons do like Robinson but from all the talks they like Jake better

Liqui15 on March 27, 2014 at 05:07 PM.Lightning.
Lightning never strikes the same spot twice.
I think that the Texans have to go with Manziel. People can talk about his potential to bust, they can talk about his "immaturity" or his aptitude to be a little cocky, but what they will never be able to deny is the fact that he performs when it matters. He's a competitor.
Any quarterback you take with the #1 pick is going to have a pretty large risk factor this year.
If they don't go Manziel, they need to try and trade back. If they could find a partner to trade back into the mid to late first, and then pick up a second rounder as well, they could very well revamp their aging positions. They could grab one of the big wide receivers that are out there this year, they could grab a corner in the early second round that can make a difference.

Thank you both for taking the time to read!
@stl_yung: The Rams still believe that Tavon Austin is their answer, and will likely pass on a second straight 1st round reciever. They need serious help on the O-Line, but they really seem to get into Jadeveon Clowney. A Robert Quinn, Jadeveon Clowney pair makes my mouth water as much as their's. It is a really lethal combo. Luckily they also have the 13th overall pick to address their O-Line needs. The WR class is stacked this year, so if the need for a reciever is high, they can take one in the second and he'd still could be really good. But then again, Oakland wants that #2 pick, and I do believe they want it enough to trade for it. So neither of our guesses could be wrong.
@cusefan74: The Brown could have a legit answer to a QB situation until next year when they will make a run at Jameis Winston or Petty/Mannion if Jameis stays. They need another reciever to make a combo with Josh Gordon, and I can see them looking into the top receiver in the class. I believe the Rams think they are set enough with Jake Long for now. They may make a push Javelle Wharton at guard to ease up a bit. But now that I think of it, the Rams O-Line does need an upgrade at RT. So in volume 2, I'll think about it.
Again, thank you guys. This is just the first of 2, so please look at my second when released. Thanks for the input!
I don't see the Rams taking Clowney or the Browns taking Watkins either. From what I understand the Rams need help at O-line and the Browns really need a QB. There is no sense in drafting guys like Watkins if you can't get the ball to them.

Oh sorry, never clarified. I mean from each side, so 1 from L is 1 from the furthest left, and 2 from R would be 2 from the furthest right.
As for the settings, I find them to be pretty good. Not perfect. I also forgot to make an edit, as I made these a month ago and have them saved. I currently have no pass assist and it makes them better.
I seem to outplay the CPU for the most part still, but the scores seem to reflect the overall of the team more than default settings.

Got some ideas.
2014 Witchita State
And even though they weren't a good or classic team, I think it would be kinda cool to have the 2013 Florida Gulf Coast dunk city team!
ODogg on March 23, 2014 at 12:23 PM.Yeah the ps4 is the same but unlike the xbox one you can easily swap out the internal hard drive w any 2.5" drive
ODogg on March 23, 2014 at 12:22 PM.Thanks man, hers a link, then just click on donate to Shaun
bigdoc85 on March 23, 2014 at 07:11 AM.Hey -- prayers and best wishes for you. By the way, the link you provided didn't work but this one hopefully will:
ANDROMADA 1 on March 23, 2014 at 04:46 AM.Do you have to load games onto the PS4 to play them? I own the XBox one and at first 500 gb seemd large till I realized that some I have 2 games and a few apps chewing up 17% of my space. That means I can only have like 3 or four more games as they have large data requirements. BF4 alone needs around 60 GB.
Also, when it comes to Kinect vs the rest of the market there is no comparison. MS is light years ahead in this area with their console. I'm not saying PS is bad, its just not as good feature wise or with security given the breach into their network.

Whelp, I forgot to post my reversal in multiple threads: I had one too (yours is much better quality, of course).
I had a reversal in recent game. Here's the link
It's the first clip.

I've had this same rant a ton of times... The biggest issue I have with this company is that once the football year passes they don't update anything else, leaving the value of the game to drop drastically. That's why you can go to gamestop right now and pick up last years madden for 1/3 the cost or even less... and the year before that, you can pick it up for under 3-4 bucks.
With their exclusive NFL licensing deal assumingly expired, I hope there will be an influx of other companies (of course 2K is a big hitter) that join back in the football game market.

Funny, it didnt used to happen with the older systems. Games were always launched with a few stellar games.
This happens every time a "new generation" of consoles are launched. The first wave of games is underwhelming, and with Microsoft you probably have almost a year of hardware kinks being ironed out.
I realize that soon I'll be forced to upgrade, whenever the developers bail on the current gen altogether, but I'll be waiting until at least next fall for the sports titles, and hopefully a price reduction.
I hear you completely. I went with Sony this time around. Last gen I went with xbox and was glad I did, I'm sort of wishing I went with Xbox One. My friend has one and it is in almost every way more developed and better. More games, better User Interface and more features right now. The PS4 is severely lacking in games and features, so much so if it wasnt for FIFA I would have sold it.

^ Im really excited about The Golf Club coming out soon. I know a lot of people don't like golf but I really am hoping this game works out. I'm pleased with my PS4, I just wish i would work with my old bluetooth headset ... meh my cell phone earbuds work just fine
I have had a PS4 since launch and haven't looked back. BF4 is amazing visually miles ahead of the PS3 version. Madden may look similar but it plays a little better with a more challenging AI. The free games such as Outlast was a surprisingly clever and suspenseful game. And not to mention 2K14 looks and plays incredible.
Nothing wrong with choosing to wait. There are very few system sellers at launch. I just pickedup a XBox One for Titanfall. That is a system seller.
The Show, for us sports gamers, is absolutely the only reason I picked up a PS4. But with a golf game on the horizon (Golf Club) and with stellar games on the horizon the next-gen cycle will take shape.
The first year of a new system is generally slow. Exclusives are low and the hardware's potential hasn't truly been tapped. I personally believe waiting a year for a price cut and an improved library is the way to go. Of course it depends on your wallet. Mine is light so I will wait.
