This should be the last time I write about the XFL allowing 2k to make a game. The XFL has taken a huge blow. There are three reasons for this. It doesn't make me happy to write this; however, there is sliver of hope. But it's just that a sliver.

But before I get into all of that let me point out a few things that came to me before the blow was landed. I'm not sure what the plan was, but I believe there needs to be a transition window like the CFL has for the NFL. This gives players ... Read More

It's been 6 and 3 quarters of XFL to this point and I can't sit on these points any longer. I think I want another option for a football game more than others. The games so far has been good but if I see ACC or PAC12 quality football. That's not a talent related comment.

But after what I've seen there could be a lot of issues with the game. So I'll start with the fact that the XFL seems like it's more of a tryout for the NFL for the younger guys than it's own league. With this I ... Read More

The NFL season has come and gone. In the past that meant we had to get our football fix via Madden, highlights, or some other football outlet. This year things may be better with the start of the XFL season this weekend. I have my fingers crossed in hopes that we get a better product than that rushed AAF. With all that being said this is a video game blog.

So my mind instantly rushed (football pun) to what a different option for a football game could look like. I'm not a madden ***** ... Read More

A few weeks ago I posted a piece that focused on some of the things Madden 20 was missing. It is a few minutes after the end of the Super Bowl. Kansas City won 20-31. As I watched the game i had a thought about Madden. That thought prompted me to write another piece.

Again I'm not really going to talk about game play fixes. These are just a few more things I think would help the game.

So over the last few weeks we have had a moment to watch the playoffs play out. ... Read More

I want to warn you before you read this. If you read the title and thought to yourself, "Here's another person that's going to bash Madden." And you like that kind of stuff, I'm sorry to inform you that this isn't for you. There are enough people out there who can point out all the bad animations, glitches, scripting, and so forth. So let me be upfront, I don't really play online. I primarily play franchise mode offline.
So let me walk you through a scenario.

It's the end ... Read More

I won’t make this long. I recently was so playing madden and while going into the off-season there were 2 things that prompted this. 1st my head coach left and I only had 1 shot at getting him to return. 2nd during the draft the top 2 strong safeties came from the same team. Now I know this may not make sense but from those 2 things it got me thinking about 1st the coaching carousel in ncaa 14 and how you could recruit players which really had me missing the college game. I really enjoyed the last ... Read More

The NBA season ended and instantly we were all reminded of how long it's going to be until college football and the NFL seasons. I have good news for you all. ESPN is airing CFL games! Even with the different rules It's still good football. This got me thinking. EA has the NFL license locked up for the foreseeable future. But could 2K use the CFL license and make a great football game? Off the top of my head there are 2 big pluses. First there'd be a 2nd football game option. And secondly there'd ... Read More

I will try to leave out game play because it it seems like the team at EA has that under control. As along they add a push and shove animation for WRs and DBs I think they'll be good on that front.

Where is the HOF game madden?

They should bring back the run block modifier while keeping the pass block modifier.

They should add that aggressive conservative neutral deal from NCAA 14.

Why don't they show the QB name pre snap? They show the ... Read More

Before I get into this, I'd like to say that this just came to me so if it looks as if I'm all over the place with my ideas, it's because I am.

If you've read the title then you know that I think there should be a Spectator Mode for Madden 15. This idea came to me while I was watching the Heat vs Nets tonight and I saw a play and rewound it. It got me to thinking. When I've finished a season in Madden 25 CC if I were knocked out the playoffs a little too soon, my next move was "advance ... Read More

With the playoffs winding down, I've noticed each conference gets their own station for conference championships. In Madden the presentation has become stale, especially after playing so much of the game. They could always add cutaways and more player background stories and things of this nature. But I'm under the impression that with the new consoles the only limitation is the imagination. So would ABC, NBC,CBS, NFL Network, and ESPN broadcasts be too much to ask for?

NFC: Fox ... Read More

I havent read anything like this yet, so I'll be the first. (I think) Anywho after playing Madden 25 and NCAA 14 since they both came out. I've also watched a ton of football a good deal of college and NFL football to compare the games to. So here's a list of things that (IMO) should be in the next football game released. There are also some ideas for a "would be" college football game. Let me know what you all think of this very long list. One last thing, this list was made over a very long time. ... Read More

NCAA 13 (IMO) is a good game; however, I am very nit-picky so I can't add the GREAT label to it. I'm not gonna bash the game because I enjoy playing it so much. What I'm going to do is point out a few things that I've come to notice as I play. Then i'll try to pose a question about the next installment of the game.

So i'll start with things that have nothing to do with gameplay so if you're not interested in non gameplay thoughts go to the next paragraph. Here's a unfortunate "list" ... Read More

I was re-watching the sights and sounds play book for NCAA 13. I realized ( well I already noticed ) how amazing the crowd sounds now. At the end of the video I took a few minutes to reflect on how far it's come. As I reflected I thought back to an old version of NCAA that had a meter that showed momentum and or the level of crowd noise. I'm not sure if it had the crowd noise thing but I'm 100% sure it had a meter that showed which team had the momentum. Any who, I think I'd be cool if there was ... Read More

While playing NCAA 12 last night I noticed something interesting. I threw a 15 yrd in to my WR. The defense was in cover 2 man under. The FS ran off to help on a go on the outside WR and as my slot caught the pass the SS was blocked by the WR from the opposite side running a post. My slot then took that 15 yrd in and turned it into a 68 yrd touch down pass. The thing that caught me by surprise was the fact that my WR went to 1 knee and bowed his head. I'm sure this is a common animation it just ... Read More

I just finished another season on nba 2k 12. And something has caught my eye. The team that has the best record always has the coach of the year. Is it just me or does this happen to other people. It also does this on other sports games. On video games should COY always go to the team with the best record? What if I go 0-82 or 0-16 (lol at the thought of that) make little change to my roster and the following season I'm the 8th seed or 1 game from being the wild card? Any thoughts on this out there? ... Read More
