Good, because you've been telling us "so" for years now.


Glad that it looks like after many years of this you might finally be right.

This was a very informative stream, with lots of great gameplay examples and development insights.

Thank you, EA, for not wasting people's time, like several other sports games' streams have recently.

I'm really confused as to why they think DB's are passive aggressive against jump balls when in fact they have been the opposite while WR's were the ones just waiting for the ball to fall into their hands. DB's always had more right to the ball the WR's, but i'm glad they've added a swat mechanic for receivers, FINALLY, so that they can turn into defenders when needed....took them long enough. Still not spending $60 on it cause we should have been had all this and more.

It does back up the statement that EA is committed to making this a sim game.
Very well put. That's what I liked about him in particular--he took questions on the fly, answered them with football concepts that made sense, and didn't sound like he was giving a pre-scripted, vetted, marketing-hype response.

Could this be the first year where out of the box Madden plays like it should? I hope so. Now bring on CFM news and then we'll be in business.

I can see where SOME of your enthusiasm comes from after watching that video...not ALL of it though, you're still amped more than I will allow myself to be.

I have seen similar things in the past (not as MANY in one year mind you), but the real proof is going to be in the weeks after the game gets out into the wild and H2H, online and CFM guys really dig into it. I love the added tools given to the game and the focus on balancing things out; that alone is worthy of praise and glad to see these guys standing up and saying that what they have is a start - now its on EA to get the the support and more importantly to avoid weak knees if too many 12-14 year olds freak because they can't get 350 yards passing and 6TDs in a 20 minute game...if EA holds that line (getting more in on realism and less on satisfying ADD casuals), AND adds the things that they are talking about, THEN I will say you've been right all along...but I definitely can see reason for optimism more now.

Re: Madden NFL 15 Developer Livestream Starts at 4:30 PM EST, Watch it Here

The last game I put any time in was 12. I gave 13 a try, but had no intentions of buying given some of the options removed. Didn;t even take 25 seriously as I was done with the previous gen and nothing about the "next gen" version stood out.

All that to say this: I am definitely intrigued by 15. I still see a lot I don't like (for the love of God one of these years has to be a blow-out, all-in type of focus on animations), but they seemed to have addressed a lot of core aspects.

Add in the fact that Rex is openly and directly acknowledging flaws BEFORE THEY ARE ADDRESSED (as in, not just "yeah, last year sucked but now..." PR stuff...something I appreciated about Ian when he interacted here) while breaking down both the intention and execution of various adjustments has me actually hopeful for upcoming iterations. For a series that has been so reactive in it's development, I'm happy to see a lot more proactive and focused progression.

I still don't know where I stand on purchasing 15, but I'm definitely impressed with the effort so far and Madden is back on my radar.

Another thing I loved was the coverage disguise system; and the pre-made plays to stop particular routes; thus allowing the player on defense to predict or catch on to the opponents tendency and call the right counter play; instead of having to find the opponents tendencies, call a base play and call a bunch of individual adjustments that took much too long compared to the speed of the offense to call audibles and snap the ball....

Thus again, the delay between offensive audible calls - a HUGE improvement in the direction of sim football...IMO

Rex is winning me over...I have already pre-ordered my M15...I have never pre-ordered this early for any game...
