NBA2k19 (Xbox One)
A stronger focus on the in-game currency disappoints while the extended story mode seems to drag on with cut scenes, however it's still the best NBA game out there and plays really well.
FIFA 19 (PS4)
An expanded story mode with The Journey combined with big updates to the Kick-Off mode make this a great new entry in the series. Addition of the Champions League as well adds to the authentic feel of FIFA, and gives more ways to play.

FIFA 12

The latest FIFA soccer game was recently put in my hands with the instructions to write a review for it. Having played every FIFA game since 1998 it has always been great checking out what’s new and what has changed in each new iteration. Although FIFA 11 wasn’t a massive step up from 10, EA Canada have definitely done a good job of upsetting some hardcore fans with their latest changes, and yet they’ve still managed to kick a goal with FIFA 12.

So like most people, I rang in the New Year with fervor. A few drinks, a few laughs with friends, and a reflection on the year that was. During the reflection, we remembered our trials and tribulations, our defining moments of that year and the things we’d rather forget. Well gamers, I think we owe it to ourselves to also reflect on what was an interesting year for the gaming industry. Read more…

Marvel's Spider-Man (PS4)
Some dated gameplay mechanics, repetitive side stuff, and some pacing problems take a little bit away from this game but the combat and traversal mechanics are so refined that it is incredibly fun to play. Combine that with an exceptional story and you have a definite winner which is well worth playing.

Lucas
The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
Matt
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
