Not sure if there's enough to warrant a purchase for me. Quick counts don't interest me because working the count is something I really enjoy and it's a big part of the game. Other than that, it doesn't sound much different than last year's game, but a lot of things that are "just as good as ever" or "what you would expect", so I'll just stick to 13 since I'm on a tight budget.

You know Jeff - I felt the exact same way. QC's always seemed cheesy to me, but for some reason I really enjoy it in the Show this year.

What is your favorite mode? You can't have drastic changes every year but the game is improved in subtle ways in every area. It is so much more refined I could not imagine play 13 again. All the little improvements don't seem like much alone but together they add up. Hell even the menu alone is a huge upgrade. Franchise mode has working budgets, improved sim stats, things that aren't mentioned but enhance the game. I haven't looked at player progressioin/regression but I assume that is improved as well. Yearly save transfers is huge.

I am an offline franchise guy but with Quick Counts being playable in all the online modes I have more incentive to play those and this year I will. It makes online a lot more tolerable and cuts out the BS and time wasting. Quick Counts feels like it was made for online play it works great!

I wanted to comment on the presentation, specifically the commentary. I feel that it has improved substantially. There is a lot of situational dialogue and discussion between the 3 man team. This does add quite a bit to the experience, though I do realise that the PS4 version will be something else.

The Vita version also has much improved crowd ambience if you go for that sort of thing.

When should we expect metacritic (and sits lke gamespot/IGN etc) to post their reviews?

So far I am loving this game

So it's not just a new coat of paint, but yet most of your observations are things are "as good as ever". Was it supposed to be WORSE?!

It means that while there are a couple of significant improvements, they didn't try to reinvent the wheel. They took almost everything and tweaked it for the positive. Add all that together, and it's a very nice package that SCEA has delivered.
