Re: Podcast #3

They plan to have franchise mode like Head Coach but in the future. Definately got the impression M12 isn't going to have an amazing franchise mode. Everything they said about franchise mode was future and long term goal.
Very scary to hear the abuse Josh Looman gets from the Ultimate team crowd.

Re: Podcast #3

Yeah basically I will sum up the whole podcast. Long term goals. So in the end looks like franchise mode won't get a face lift until probably Madden 14 or Madden 15, since they kept saying it takes 3 years to put that kind of thing in.

Digital route planned....expanding their base again.....I don't see how much further they can expand Madden, the game is already on every device so far but android phones.

I wish they would put Head Coach into Madden though, even half of it would do, that game was a thinking man's game. Oh and I remember Quarterback Club, that was a pretty fun game back in the day.

Hmmm what else.......Time was the big theme of the podcast. They kept talking about that they don't have enough time to do this and that.

From what I am seeing, EA is heading more towards the money making route with add on's since they seen how much money people spent on FIFA add on's.

SO I expect Madden Ultimate team to be even bigger next year with probably even more add on features to buy.

But Donny, I think it was Donny who said it, he was funny when told the guy well buy another copy of madden and another and another and another until you can get connected online.

Re: Podcast #3

Here is what I got out of it, at least for franchise mode.

One word: immersion. That' is Josh's and Danny's goal for franchise mode. They noticed that was the result of HC. Yeah, it's going to take awhile to get everything in from HC to Madden.

Also, HC is the standard of what they want for franchise in Madden. If 30% of the stuff was imported on yearly basis from HC, I'd be a happy camper. I didn't expect, as Donny stated, a flip of the switch, and poof, in one year we have HC in franchise mode.

Also, sounds like MUT is a big hit.

Re: Podcast #3

Yeah kind of funny that MUT is a big hit. I only played it once and it wasn't for me. Even more funny how people cheat in MUT. Not that serious......

I don't know why people make it their goal to cheat in any and every game, game mode there is. What's the point of playing then if you going to cheat to win ?

Re: Podcast #3

Seeing as the HC code is already there I would think a year with a decent sized team and unlimited overtime would get it done but that's a very big check and the suits clearly have their eyes on $online$.

Yeah sounds like the old next gen madden team screwed us when is comes to franchises mode and they basically have to from scratch now :P At least there using Head Coach as a base so thats a great start.
