What we're playing: 'Madden 18', 'Cuphead' and 'Destiny 2'

Welcome back in Gaming IRL, a monthly segment where several editors mention what they've been playing into their downtime. This month, like most of the world, were playing Destiny 2 and EA Sports' latest and greatest. Also Cuphead. Lots of Cuphead.

When EA revealed an article mode for Madden 18 back at E3, I was already hooked. The limited portion in the so-called "Longshot" feature I saw in LA only cemented it. I hadn't taken notice of Madden in years, though the addition of your narrative storyline that have a healthy dose of Friday Night Lights and also a NCAA Football tease was enough to produce me take serious notice again. Sure, "Longshot" will be the football same in Madden Mobile Coins Cheap principle as "The Journey" in EA's FIFA franchise, even so the story mode is like a great add-on with a title that's typically information about playing games and managing rosters.

"Longshot" begins as with any good football story does: Kids playing catch within the yard. You first satisfy the main character, Devin Wade, pretending to win an enormous game along with his best friend Colt Cruise (How's that for any Texas football name?) and his awesome father, Cutter. The narrative quickly speeds ahead to Devin and Colt leaving before sunrise they are driving to an NFL regional scouting combine -- what could be the duo's last chance to produce a professional roster. Devin was obviously a 5-star recruit at Texas but quit football entirely after his father died. Now he's trying to create an impossible comeback.

From there, the story plot is told by using a series of flashbacks to Devin's secondary school and college days. You can only play through those secondary school games, so aren't getting your hopes up for the mini version of NCAA Football to fill that void. The small parts of Friday Night Lights-esque action are equal parts fun and thrilling as being the pressure is giving you to save games for the arm, legs and skill of Devin Wade. Since you don't need to pick plays or concern yourself with other issues with the game, you'll be able to just consentrate on making the throws and decisions was required to win. It may seem a lttle bit weird for die-hard Madden fans, though the condensed action keeps the storyline moving at the good clip. It also helps that Devin is defined as Cam Newton 2.0.

I enjoyed those sections where Devin dons the Mathis Bullfrogs' green and gold a lot more than any other portion of "Longshot." Indeed, you recruit a brief have a look at what it's love to go through the draft process, including interviews, football IQ tests and drills -- a lot of of drills. That stuff was all pretty interesting, except for me, those secondary school games differentiate yourself from the rest it. There's also a reality show storyline that creates "Longshot" peak 2017.

Even operating those things, telling Devin's current story by bouncing back-and-forth with flashbacks might be a clunky. It makes sense, nevertheless the pace of the storyplot seems to sputter on occasion. There's a lot more drama surrounding that TV show than seems necessary, however it does make Devin's prep for the remaining of the draft process considerably more interesting than if he were training on his own. It's just just a little over the Madden Mobile Coins for sale top from time to time.

I won't spoil the ending, but "Longshot" gives Madden fans something extra this current year and provides the groundwork for other story modes later on releases. For me, "Longshot" isn't quite as compelling as FIFA's "The Journey," however it's a compelling first effort inside a new franchise. It's good enough that I'm getting excited about seeing what EA does next with Madden 19. alt
