Video Games: Madden 17 NYG-CLE First Drive Analysis

Playing video games have always been a hobby and on top of that I love playing the Madden Series. Although, I don't buy it yearly; the notion of building your own franchise has always been an interesting thing. So I thought this would be a good time to start a post that analyzes my first offensive drive in each Madden game I play from now on.


On this post, we'll take a look at the Season 1, New York Giants - Cleveland Browns. This first offensive drive that we would look at started with a touch back from the kickoff. Cleveland just scored a touchdown and we're immediately down 7 - 0.

First play, I thought there was a good gap on the right hand side of the line. So I audible and changed the play to a run play.

The second play was a RB screen pass that I thought would've worked. But instead the defense made a good play slicing through the blockers and tackling the RB for a 4 yard loss.

On 3rd and 9, Shephard gets open up in the middle for a long pass. This worked because the safety had to help on the other side. So you'll need to read the safety on this play. If the safety moves to your left, the middle part of the field opens up.

At 2:42 of the video, you can view another play that you can read the safety. When the play starts, you'll see the safety move to the middle of the field. This leaves Cruz one on one with the corner. Do a little check if he's up front. And lob it to him for a long gain.

A few plays later, blocks work and we score a touchdown.

Watch the video when you can. :)

So I have not been posting at the same frequency as I started. Anyways, who is excited with our week's mail. We found a promo code for a board game a few weeks ago. Since we don't know how to play this game and price is reasonable after the promo code, we decided to go with the buy. Anyways, it has finally come through, and here it is!



Welcome Sequence to our Board Game Collection.
Learn. Laugh. Venture.

Phoenix, Arizona

Winter in Phoenix, Arizona. (Late Post)

I have heard from people of how hot Arizona gets during the Summer. But I've never heard people talk about the brief moment of time when it gets really cold. This is the case when I visited Phoenix in December. It was cold.

Phoenix and the surrounding are have a lot of good places to eat and drink.

The Order: 1886 Review

During this past weekend, one of the games I have always wanted went on a PlayStation Flash Sale. The game cost $7.99 which wasn't that bad considering the overall good reviews the game had. The game was known to have had a pretty good story as well as good graphics and gameplay. So without giving much of the story, I'll try to get my point of view of the game.
The game feels like a movie. With the 2 hours, I spent this weekend playing the game. One thing is evident. This game surely feels like a movie. To me, this isn't a bad thing. I have always been a fan of great story lines on video games. This keeps you interested in playing the game and rather than just finishing the game just because you spent money on it.

The controls are pretty good; although if you are used to Battlefield or Call of Duty or any kind of first person shooter, you'll need to adjust at the trigger button.

Overall, I like the game. It's a good buy even if you won't get it on sale.
