Hit The Pass - Press Row Podcast

Press Row Podcast – Episode 150 – FIFA 16/Pro Evolution 2016 Review Roundtable

The 150th (!) episode of the Press Row Podcast gets all our international football-loving friends together to chat all about the brand-new FIFA 16 as well as quite a bit of Pro Evolution 2016. The panel discusses the on-pitch gameplay, new ways to experience Ultimate Team, the controversial FUT Draft mode, and why some people may be feeling a bit of a missing spark with a lack of significant new ways to play despite FIFA’s overall excellence. PES 2016 also gets some love, as the group compares and contrasts the two games and celebrates the fact that two great soccer games are available today – something we can’t say about most other sports.

With Madden NFL 16 and MLB 15 The Show as the currently-available big-time sports games (not for long, though, as hockey, soccer, and hoops games are coming out quickly!) a few of our regular Press Row panelists get together to debate the merits of the two against each other. Kat, Bryan, T.J, and Rich analyze how Madden is faring three weeks after release, and compare and contrast gameplay, modes, and Ultimate Team vs Diamond Dynasty between the two games.

In addition, Kat Bailey drops by (again) to chat about her hands-on time with NBA 2K16 at the development studio. She's very impressed with what was on display and has a lot of interesting perspectives on where the game stands.

As we near the arrival of one of the most anticipated sports games ever - between a new Spike Lee-driven story, significantly upgraded franchise features offline and online, ambitious on-court gameplay additions, and new collaborative modes - host Rich Grisham sits down with two of the NBA 2K16 development team members to talk about what it all means. Scott O'Gallagher and Nino "Da Czar" Samuel join Rich for a wide-ranging discussion on what the NBA 2K franchise really means these days, why they think it's going to be the best basketball game ever made, and what's in store both now and the future.

Enjoy the show!
