Re: EA Sports Madden 15 Tackling Mechanic

Other than the difficulty settings for the tackle cone being enabled by default, I think this is mostly stuff we already know. I'm a little surprised that it's on by default on All-Pro, but it's no big deal since again it's optional.

It is nice to see all the new controls demonstrated, regardless.

Re: EA Sports Madden 15 Tackling Mechanic

The animations actually looked good there, except those tackles where it's like a WWE shoulder charge. Those have got to go Tiburon. If you gonna have those power hits the defender has to go down as well. This ain't wrestling. I'm trying to believe they're taking the sim route, but leaving stuff like this in, it's hard to tell.

That was a good video liked the tackles. I haven't played Madden in a while but wasn't the strafe button L2 before? If L2 now brings up the cone is strafing out of the game?

Not a fan of the over the top big hits. I get that it's "Madden" but you don't see those kinds of hits very often in the NFL. Guys are too scared to get fined. I prefer to see more wrap ups.

I doubt it. L2 is the precision modifier as of last year, which allowed you to make several more effective moves as the ballcarrier. It sounds like L2 on defense will now make your player face the ballcarrier and the cone will appear and rotate to reflect that.

This wouldn't have any impact on passing plays, of course - I'm sure strafing would be exactly the same there.

I've never been and probably never will be a fan of the shoulder block tackle where the defensive player just dips his shoulder and doesn't even use his arms to tackle. Looks more like wwe than nfl.

Re: Madden NFL 15 Trailer - Tackling Mechanics

Lighting and shadowing looks MUCH better...that was the first time I have really been wowed by just graphics for Madden - the earlier videos were nice, but this is on another level - hope that means the game is still progressing towards the gold pressing here in a few weeks. I know features are locked long ago and almost certainly gameplay is also locked down already, but lighting and shadowing and color balance can be tweaked still and it looks really nice...

I LIKED the QB vision cone, so I think (just guessing here) that may make me more accepting of the tackle cone right off the bat...I would actually like to see that concept expanded as a training tool - QBs should have the same kind of reduced cone, just showing the directions the QB's head would be turned. Madden tried the QB vision cone and it was loathed by many and died an ugly death inside of 2 years ('06/'07)...but I liked the concept then and still like it now. The tackle cone looks OK to me...not something I will use too much, but if it gets players to be more sound in the fundamentals of "football", then it increases the pool of acceptable online players - a bonus for all in my eyes. Many guys online simply have no idea HOW to play football and so they resort to crap playstyles and nonsense and then quit out of frustration or pique when it gets shut down...give them more tools to learn a more in-depth playstyle and maybe, just maybe it helps change the game...

The rest of the video seemed to have better flow in the motion (at least the clips looked better to me except for the few glaring exceptions that have been pointed out already)...I actually felt a little better about M15 after that first viewing, so I think I'll let that lie for now and wait on the demo now...
