    Sim Standard Radio Episode 64 - 2K Sports and CLC Teams, Madden 16, and more!

    in Video Games

    Welcome back Sim Gamers. We are excited to have you join us for another show. We have some nice topics to discuss tonight and we can't wait to hear your thoughts. In the second hour we will open the line for your calls. Brief descriptions of tonight's topics are listed below. See you guys at 8pm EST. 


     


    2K Sports and CLC/College Teams - We touched on this briefly last week but we want to further discuss our thoughts on what this all means. What are the details? Will the college teams be playable? Why does it always take 2K so long to show gameplay?


     


    Everyone has their own priority list with Madden - This is a topic that could go on and on for days, we will cover a lot with this one topic. We will basicially discuss how it's all a matter of opinion. 


     


    Are sports and sim gamers pushed to the back burner? - This topic comes from faithful caller 205 (Alabama). He feels like sports gamers seem to be behind with innovation. The example he gave was Battlefield's Frostbite Engine, he would like to know why EA Sports didn't use that engine for their games going into this generation. We will give our thoughts on the subject.
