Oh, and something about wanting the best madden ever or something.
Ian has a longgg way to go in order to make the presentation anything close to 2K5. My friend is over here, and is playing it right now. And it's just ridiculous. I looked over at the TV and was like "DUDE WTF? LOOK AT THE FIELD!" There was a shadow from the blimp overhead on the field, moving.

I saw that too. that was pretty cool, except the shadow was huge. It made it seem like the blimp was the size of a zepplin, and passing only a couple feet above the stadium. I still thought it was cool though .

Haha yea, it was rather large. But it was still a nice little, unneeded touch. It's the little things that count sometimes ;]

The community interaction and steady flow of tweaks and small changes/additions are starting to incite optimism in a lot of folks. Like everybody else, I can't wait to see gameplay footage of all this stuff coming together, not to mention the "big" stuff we haven't heard about yet.

My favorite quote is below - from my boy Tyrant8RDFL from Queens (which I've actually had bookmarked all this time):

And now here we are, 4 months later worth of interaction, suggestions, changes, and information, and here is Tyrant's most recent post:

Woohoo! Turnarounds like this make us happy...this has been a KEY goal for us all along - to truly prove to our loyal fans that our new design team isn't messing around.

There's still a long way to go - and believe me I'm not saying we've won the battle because we aren't even close to done (and no one has even played the game yet), but it does feel good that at the very least people can see our vision and improvements, and get on board that we're all in this together to make the best game possible. It's been an exciting ride so far, that's for sure.

Ok, enough retrospective...back to work.

Tyrant8RDFL definitely LIT you guys up...pretty funny to read that...I'm not endorsing all of his comments but I can definitely feel his frustration. He's probably a dude just like me...Just give us a great sim with solid gameplay, physics and presentation and you wouldn't likely hear a peep from us...

A Bad Madden year for a hardcore Madden cat like me is just a BAD YEAR altogether...Call me crazy for putting so much of my leisure into whether Madden is good/great or not but thats just the way it is for me...So Ian when we light you guys up from time to time just know its coming from that LOVE we have for Madden deep down inside.

Personally while I think everything looks and sounds great so far I'm going to remain skeptical if for no other reason to save myself from another huge let down...I'd rather think the worst and be pleasantly surprised as opposed to having my hopes all high and getting buzzkilled by another sub par next gen Madden.

Where da hell is Dcas???

Re: Just 4 months ago...I think we're turning a corner...

Can't wait for some screens of the other teams...But i'm going to hold my breathe on madden 10 until I see some gameplay thats where they need to bring it the most.

Also Great job on detail, the little things matter and it looks like EA is taking care of that pretty good.

Re: Just 4 months ago...I think we're turning a corner...

I can tell you this I have always been skeptical, to be truthfully honest I still am a bit.. But with all the changes you guys have done so far in just several months and you guys reaching out to the community, i'm starting to believe! The fact that you guys are truely reaching out and putting forth the effort in improving game in so many ways, shows alot..

Now we just need to see how it all moves in action! That will be the key in completely winning me over.. Keep up the good work Ian & Co..

Re: Just 4 months ago...I think we're turning a corner...

When EA and it's Reps started to reach out to the communities, seems lots of things started to improved.

Not only does the game seem to be getting the attention it's long needed...but the overall atmosphere between EA/TIB and the communities has improved as well.

Pretty amazing things can happen, when a company starts to show it's loyal customers that they do actually matter. Thanks Ian for being a major part of that difference.
