I'm still seeing the same animations we've had for far too long. Tackling looks nice and graphics are obviously amazing. Hopefully presentation is improved and we do find a few signature animations.

I'm now looking forward to playing this in 5 weeks.
What really stood out to me is that they actually used an internal presentation that included a lot of technical information about what they're doing. This is a clear sign that they understand how detail driven a large percentage of their fan base is and they're attempting to present their efforts with a more technical approach and I appreciate that.

Seams like this team realizes the majority that buy sports games want realism and they need to balance out arcade and sim gameplay to continue driving sales for the title. I'll support their efforts as long as they just keep driving the game forward, the past several years have just been brutal because it really felt like a lot of excuses and spinning around in circles.

Re: Madden NFL 15 Developer Livestream, Watch it Here

Couple of other things I noticed in the stream.

Positives:

  • The pass rush and line play looks MUCH better. Saw some really nice hand fighting and even an initial stutter step move by a DE. Not perfect, but really looks good.
  • Wrap tackles are nice and game LOOKS smoother.
  • Nicer pass deflections
  • Some of the defensive tools and audible changes are great. Provide nice counters to offense while maintaining realism.
  • The rip swats and WR swats are very nice
  • Zone chucks are nice, but need to be more frequent
  • I like the
Negatives:
  • At 53 minutes, the screen play looks really good until #74 lays that nice cut block. The problem is he basically warps back upright and blocks the oncoming safety. This is obviously a bug, but it was in 25 as well. Looks really bad and is frustrating.
  • QBs are still too accurate with passes getting off when they shouldn't
It was nice to see only a few of the real frustrating elements that were in 25. Most of the things that we have been clamoring for for YEARS are being addressed and built upon. I used to say this 5 years ago all the time - addressing areas of the game are not ever just one year efforts. Everything that is in the game should get improvements year over year. That's how you get to the top of the mountain like FIFA, NBA and MLB. Build and refine. Seems like they are doing that now.

I'm so tempted to trade in amy ps3 and everything just to pick up a PS4 and Madden. If last gen version is scarce on new features I'm gonna seriously consider it.

Madden 15 does look much improved but not improved enough to make me go out and buy a next gen console yet. Im holding out for wr/db interactions and/or animation overhaul, hopefully this happens next year.
I may get a next gen console for Christmas or in early 2015 (The Witcher 3!), at that point I may rent Madden 15 or buy it off Craigslist.

On that same play where 74 glitches on the cut block, one of the best moments of the stream happened IMO. 29 of SD jumps over 74 and reaches for Hilleman and grazes the back of his jersey from behind, just enough to help knock him off his balance and bring him down.

Of course I need to play the game myself to gauge how much of an impact this actually has. One thing I am curious about is whether or not the WR ratings will play any role on slightly off target passes.
Yea you did miss way wide but that was normally if you weren't set and you held the joystick to lead to much. But yea I get what you are saying. Hopefully its more of like what you said.

Re: Madden NFL 15 Developer Livestream, Watch it Here

After watching this stream, looks good. Especially since it's Alpha. My question (authenticity), if the Referee was changed, why is the in game ref still using Ed Hochuli's number 85? (I think the new guy's number is 120 or similar)....

Re: Madden NFL 15 Developer Livestream, Watch it Here

Very impressed by the video and Rex. A little concerned that the focus seems to be a bit slanted toward online/h2h play, as I am basically offline only. Would like to hear a lot more about the AI improvements, especially clock management and play calling.

Also hoping they have done more than a simple facelift to CFM. The mode needs a lot of work and I am worried that it will have the same probs as last year, that will go a long way in adding replayability to the game. A bit worried that no info has been revealed yet.

I have been anti-Madden for a long time. The last one I genuinely like was Madden 10 and before that there was a long drought too, IMO. But I am on board for this one. Day one purchase for me, partly because I like what I see, I believe in Rex and company and want to support their vision for sim Madden and because there is a lull in quality games until October hits.
