With several sports games nearing release the discussion in this episode of the Press Row Podcast centers on the two upcoming basketball games and the two soccer games. The first opportunity to play them comes even earlier, with Pro Evolution Soccer 2019's demo out already, a demo for NBA Live 19 and Prologue for NBA 2K19 expected before the month is up, and FIFA 19 a little farther out. How well are the games shaping up and what will the competition between them be like this year? Before all that, Bryan and Rich debate whether the Arcade gameplay style in Madden has become the best way to play.
