Great post Matt.

Myself...I do harbor some resentment towards EA because of where the "Next gen" Madden game is at this point. It's not fair of me to say this[because I wasn't there] but I can't help but feel that EA's past efforts with the newer gen Madden games have been very lackluster.


I think your advice is sound. Although it's tough to let go of the feelings of past disappointments...it's time for me to look forward now, rather than backward. It may still be the same ole EA...but there is a new team of Madden devs, and yes, they deserve a fair chance, without being constantly reminded of past failures...I think they get it by now.

As you alluded to...the doubters and convinced alike will find out in August. I feel sure of one thing, that Ian & Co will do their best.

We still never know what might happen...

Personally I think they are going balls-to-the-walls this time because of the new BACKBREAKER game that's going to come out and give Madden a run for its money.

Briefly, though. There is the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Not me, since I'll be at a friend's house who's not nearly as into Madden as I am. I'll probably be stuffing my face at halftime. But I'm definitely going to check out this site as soon as I get home.

Doubtful. Last I read, Backbreaker was "still in developement"....and that was about a year ago. No word/new videos/news since.

I honestly believe Ian and company are just motivated to be the first team in NG Madden to honestly break through and become the team that turns the franchise around, even without competition. Ian knows what we've been complaining about, and is determined to fix it.

Either that, or the crew are politicians in disguise, able to be very good liars........(My vote is the formal, not the latter!)

I feel.......................teased!

If Sunday's halftime thread is "big news Tuesday" I will throw a virtual tomato at Ian.
thats not really true...we were told we would be given news about the team on Thursday (which we were) and news about the game would follow.

In terms of pure quality, maybe. Sales-wise, no football game will ever give Madden a run for its money unless it has real NFL teams and players. That's just reality.

Re: [EXCLUSIVE] Madden NFL 10 News!

If anyone hasnt heard about Josh from head coach then I would consider saying it is noteworthy to check how active he was in OC after head coach's release.

I rememeber picking up head coach and finding some heavy duty glitches that nearly killed the game before it started and he and a few others spent their time helping people come up with work arounds until he and his team could fix the problems in an update.

If they just bring common sense logic for drafting and player growth by performance and the health/injury of players that was present in head coach, madden will already be ahead by a mile....if the manage to get an online league even if its limited to 10 human controlled teams...they will be 1000 miles ahead.
