Another year, another Madden. Does it do enough for me to recommend it to you if you have the previous year’s entry? No. Does this matter if you’re a fan of the series? Likely not. Madden 13 does, however, do enough to allow me to recommend it to you if you’re interested in picking up a football game and haven’t owned one for a couple of years, or if a number of your friends are picking it up and you want to play online with them. Connected Careers is potentially the most revolutionary element of Madden 13, and could shape the future of sports games if it executes correctly.

As a package, Madden 13 will keep players and fans busy throughout the football season, particularly when considering the amount of content updates promises in terms of Madden Moments and Ultimate Team cards. It’s disappointing that on the field Madden 13 plays so similarly to its predecessors, but the encompassing package should do enough to placate all but the most ardent of naysayers.As a 30-something year-old gamer, I’ve had a chance to play a lot of games on different platforms over the years. XCOM was a game that stuck in my memory as one of the most frustrating and most challenging games that I’ve ever come across.

Hundreds of hours were spent building facilities, researching technologies, and assaulting endless waves of enemy extraterrestrials in hometowns around the world, only to have it quickly undone by countries losing faith in my abilities, government officials being replaced by alien duplicates, or some other mishap that ruined my funding and forced me to start a new game. But when I did things just right and managed to fight off the aliens and drive them back to their home world, there was no match for the sense of satisfaction that I felt, which is exactly the same feeling that I got when I played 2K Games wholly revamped XCOM: Enemy Unknown!

Developed by Firaxis (creators of Sid Meier’s everything since 1997), the 2012 release contains just about every major feature that was in the original 1994 turn-based strategy game, with a few extras. The story is simple: You are the commander of an elite organization known as XCOM. Tasked with the defense of Earth’s nations from an invading alien force, you will deploy troops into the field to fight off alien attacks, manage the construction of new facilities in your bases, oversee the development of new technologies and research based off of recovered alien artifacts, and try to bring every trooper under your command home safely.

Unlike many modern games, your actions in everything you do have very real consequences. Mismanaging your funds or failing to research the right technologies can leave you with insufficient resources/weapons to combat the growing alien threat. Ignoring the needs of a member country can cause them to leave the global alliance which funds you, and subsequently bring down the amount of dollars that you receive monthly to maintain operations. Each mistake can slowly add up to the point where no matter what you do, you will fail, forcing you to start a new
fifa 14 coins game from the beginning, regardless of the number of hours you spent building your organization from the ground up. However, before you start to think about how fun that doesn’t sound, allow me to explain exactly why this game will keep you on the edge of your seat for hours.
