I used to play madden all the time. I havent in like ten years. How hard is this gonna be to learn to pick it up again.

worth just buying madden 22 or whatever?
A little more complicated but if you are just playing for fun you shouldn't have any problems. Franchise mode is very deep now, I enjoy it. Only been playing for a couple days so far after not playing Madden for 4-5 years so I'm in the same boat. Already winning on All-Pro but I always enjoyed and thrived at football games.

Now I know why I haven’t bought Madden in 3-4 years. Freezes up at least one time every time I play. Apparently you cant play zone, they have zero common sense and float around or blitz even with good LB’s. Everytime I get in the game there is something wrong, one time I couldnt get onto my online franchise, sign in issue with Madden, etc. I mean you name, not sure if others had issues. Gameplay is pretty bad as well, you can still run into lineman and you will fall over, pretty common. Madden 11 or 13 was better than this trash

Madden 22’

There must be some glitch with the kicking lately. I line it all up perfectly on the meter and it’s a bad kick.

I've played through about 20 hours or so of Hades. Supergiant's last game was called Pyre and it was about a group of mostly innocent misfits trying to escape a hellish purgatory. It was a big misfire because it was very dialogue driven and most of the dialogue happened in a static screen while you sat in your buggie. A good portion of the game also occurred on an overworld map and the actual gameplay was pretty sparse and quite repetitive. Hades is just as dialogue heavy but manages to be very well paced and constantly giving you control of your main character. The hub has a ton of personality and they managed to fit everything into the roguelike structure perfectly.

The gameplay is solid for the most part as its movement based. The first biome is fairly simple, the second adds an environmental hazard, the third adds more traps. They all have a good flow to them. The fourth biome switches things up and the enemies appear immediately instead of spawning in and they spew poison in cramped rooms. This makes the fourth biome really boring as I just spam ranged attacks and hope for the best. The bosses are quite great, though, and eventually you can make them even better with modifiers. The weapons also get more interesting as you play more.

The graphics are functional. No slowdown as you'd expect and the character art is all rather interesting. Not a boob to be found. The greek mythology is as masculine as ever. The voice work is great and distinct. The music in the first two biomes is great and builds well to make the boss fights seem more epic. Two characters sing songs and they stand out, as well. The music in the later biomes isnt too interesting but they all cant be bangers.

I think what makes Hades stand out is that it does everything reasonably well. A normal indie game might be an 8/10 or 9/10 gameplay with 7/10 graphics and 0/10 story. Hades is an 8/10 gameplay, 8/10 graphics, 9/10 sound and music, 8/10 story. As such, its probably closer to a big budget title in how it should be viewed and thats fairly impressive.

EA Sports, yeah. Other EA games have actually been getting better over the past couple of years imo.

Battlefield launches are always rough, though

I bought Cyberpunk 2077 a couple of weeks ago for $10. Not too bad so far. Also about to buy Ghost of Tsushima and Far Cry 6 during PlayStation’s Black Friday sale.

Let me know how you like it. I got to a certain point and couldn’t get past it, so I quit playing and never went back to it.
So far it seems like an interactive movie made for
Consoles and TVs. Which means extremely low rating from me. Good graphics though. Hdr too.
