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

This thread proves that the majority of us on OS just want honesty and to see real gameplay. For the devs to listen to those, like us, that are hard core and use that feedback to move the game in the right direction. They are doing that and now you see all these positive comments. We aren't negative for the most part we are just passionate. We aren't anti-Madden. We are just pro-realistic football. Madden seems to be heading that way and from the response we aren't just "haters"

I must say, I must say that I have been the toughest critic on madden 15 since the first video that came out BUT I actually enjoyed that video...Hearing those guys expressing concern to fix the so common issues. I also like the tackling and I cant believe im saying this...multiple player tackles....The pocket can be a little tighter collapsing on the QB but I think I may like it.....and this was not even on the zoom camera....Only time will tell...and I love the way rex blew his boy up for always going for it on 4th down

To be fair it's not the majority that show criticisms etc.. that are deemed haters...
It's those that even when something positive is shown, come in with their juvenile hit and run slams with no productive comments...and leave.

Most welcome the warranted criticisms

And I really want clarification of the D cam !!! lol

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

I appreciated so much about this stream.

1) You didn't answer half the questions with "we'll get to that next year" or "there wasn't enough dev cycle time." In fact, I'd argue that you guys worked FAR more on this game than I would've expected in a typical one year cycle, and that's what we all want to see. And the game is CLEARLY better from it--as far as we can tell without touching the sticks of course.

2) You didn't just answer cupcake questions about weather, grass and stadiums. The questions were in-depth about defensive schemes and coverages--pretty complex stuff for anyone who's not a football junkie--and you not only explained it in a fashion that didn't talk down to your viewers, but a passionate guy like RG actually had answers. Not fluff answers. Real, in-depth answers.

3) Every single year on this board, we get to E3, and we see a ton of stuff that doesn't look good. And every year, defenders will come here and say, "don't worry, it's just an early build. It'll get better." And it doesn't.

I can honestly say that, this is probably the first Madden game in a long time--maybe ever?--where I watched the E3 footage and thought, "Wow, that's pretty good!" and then watched the stream a month later and clearly noted a significant improvement. Hats off to you guys.

4) Tackling. Sure, as Rex mentioned, complete gang tackling is not totally here. But I saw fundamental one on one takedowns. I saw multiple hits and even a tackle where two guys where bringing down a guy, and a third sort of comes in to "clean up" over the top.

Other things that stood out: Fidgeting pre-play. WR's looking back at the QB. Lineman rocking and moving back and forth. Only thing I would've liked to see was some movement from the RB--he always seemed pretty static to me.

Also, these real-time post-play sequences are fantastic. I mean, yes, we play for strong in-game gameplay, but the post-play is taking the atmosphere and emotion to another level. These players are starting to feel more alive and actually into the game they're playing.

Great stuff.

While I appreciate Rex's claim to support his investment into this game: I do not agree that his product should be judged by this years gross sales over last years sales.

To the above: there is a select group of games that gamers are highly anticipating in this new wave of next generation market share and this demand should be factored into the consumer sales for M15.

I will consider this title the Madden that helped the series to tread waters on the new generation consoles and that alone should be a significant position to hold considering the current talent in the competition pool across all genres.

These last two titles (25 & 15) are defintely not on the poor product spectrum that Madden 06 & 07 fell under during their transition to the new consoles - that is a sign of a correction in steering the course right for future iterations.

To that end, it is evident to me that Rex and Co. are atoning for the sins of their forefathers and I consider it would be fair to hold out the verdict on their sevice for another 2-3 years because this current product will serve well as a foundation but not a temple.

He didn't say that was the only way it will be judged. It's obviously just a factor, and one fans can directly influence.

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

Well I dont think I need to watch another video. I was buying the game anyway but this absolutely convinced me. I want to save some stuff for when I play the game.

A couple of small things I noticed:

- During the Chargers first drive on 3rd down, you could hear the stadium audio and it was great. There was a big gong and then the crowd got noticeably louder.

- Crowd looked decent even though they may be a little too active. During the kickoff, most fans were jumping up and down.

- People in the crowd were wearing different jerseys. I think I saw someone wearing a Joel Dreesen jersey.

- Sidelines look better but arent crowded enough.

Exactly. If sales drop significantly, EA's board and higher ups may see this as a sign that people dont like Rex's approach and they may go back to a more arcade focus.
