Current Points of Interest

1. League will begin after everyone has a chance to try the game and make sure they like it enough to commit to the schedule.

2. Start date: To Be Determined. (probably around August 20th)

3. Most likely we will begin the Tournament before the league begins. See Poncho Memorial Thread for details.

4. Even though we are taking the league seriously, don't forget to have FUN... that's why we're here.  

Let your thoughts be known regarding the above.

OK.  So here is an idea... we'll see if it goes over well or bombs.

I know I enjoy reading about games between Console Golders / Gone Golders when we play each other.  One, because we all "know" each other, and two, because they are fun to read.

So, if you have any games you've played against fellow forum members, and feel like typing up how they went, those writeups can go in this thread.

--  --  --  --  --  --

I'll even start.  (but please don't follow my lead in writing style, I am pretty useless at writeups)

RAIDERS  (Lockdown)
at
BROWNS  (Denoginizer)

All default All-Pro settings at 5 minute quarters.

My memory totally sucks, but I do remember the final score was 23-17 Raiders victory.  Warren Sapp had a great game defensively, sacking Garcia twice and having 5 tackles while totally dominating the line of scrimmage.  That really set the tone for the entire game.  

First drive, Raiders hit a streaking Jerry Rice (i think) for a quick touchdown to go up 7-0.  Denoginizer followed this with an incredibly well executed drive, some 80 yards or more, on like 12 plays, picking the Raider defense apart.  He hit numerous crucial 3rd down conversions, and just dominated the Raider secondary.  Kellen Winslow Jr. couldn't be stopped.  7-7.  I ended up having to double team him to force Denoginizer to throw to his wideouts, who actually dropped some balls.  

The rest of the game went back and forth, literally, however the Browns never actually took the lead (i don't think).  Denoginizer just couldn't get the running game going, and pretty much relied solely on Garcia and the passing game to guide the Browns.  And then... BAM!  Garcia gets sacked by Mr. Washington, and comes up injured.  The pass completions came at a slightly decreased rate at this point, and the Browns just couldn't finish it out.  Suggs was pretty much held useless.  

Some funny things about the postgame were that Denoginizer completely owned the statbook.  It wasn't even really close. He had to have more first downs in the 1st quarter than i had in the entire game.  No, I am serious.   :?  A few big plays helped me out immensely.

I had the ball so little, I can't even really remember any drives other than the first one.  I know Wheatley did allright.  He never gained more than 5 yards on an individual carry, but he was pretty consistant.  Gannon scrambled for a few big plays when I saw how Denoginizer completely blanketed my receivers.  I also know I got alot of defensive practice!!!!  I don't know if it helped... but I got the practice.   Tongue

It was a really fun game to play though.  There is nothing like playing with cool people that you "know".  I have a feeling I won't be so lucky the next time we play, but I will gladly take my 1-0 online record and brag about it to Devil when he gets back!

Raider Nation is alive and well!

Great game Denoginizer.  I had a blast.

5524  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Early Impressions - NFL 2k5 Football on: July 22, 2004, 10:10:00 AM
Our Team Requests thread is getting a bit cramped, so...

Let's start, as I have lots of thoughts running around in my mostly empty head...

What I have done:  (Xbox version).  Played 2 single player games against A.I.  Played 2 single player games with my brother (co-op) against the A.I.  Played 1/2 of online game until Panzergeist had to quit for some reason.  All games played were on default All-Pro.  Started a Franchise.  Messed with every menu I could find.  Ran through all tutorials.

Initial Thougths:  Well, as far as the menus go, my initial thoughts were actually, "I am lost".  After understanding where most things are now, I think they are organized pretty well.  It took me almost 5 minutes to figure out how to accept Panzergeist's invite to his game, and I still have to search for things on occasion, but other than that, I am liking them.  Once I got into the game, my feelings on the graphics being "ultra-better" are really kinda mixed.  On first blush, they didn't seem too much better.  Those thoughts have since changed for the better.  After playing my first quarter, I thought I was going to hate the game.  It actually reminded me of Madden a little bit, and you know how I feel about that engine.  I have since warmed up to it alot.

Graphic/Animation Thoughts:  Let me start by saying the game 'looks' better than last year on the whole.  I don't see how anyone can deny this.  There are some areas where the game looks marginally better, and others where it appears to look significantly better.  But let's face it, 2k4 looked pretty darn good.  Some of the uniforms are just outstanding this year though.  Just check out the Falcons Away jerseys if you want to know what I'm talking about.  The animations, on the whole, are flat out brilliant.  Some quick things that come to mind are the throwing arcs of the football, the tackling (both individual and gang), the defensive backs interception animations, the juke moves, and the QB scrambling and sliding.  On the other hand, there are some things I have noticed I don't like.  Some of the animations are extremely rushed (at times) and look downright stupid.  When a running back gets pushed from behind sometimes by a Linebacker, through a hole, it can look like you just hit fast forward on a vcr.  There is slowdown on some of the overlays.  Someone at OpSports pointed this out and got nearly crucified for stating it.  Guess what?  He is right.  Is it a gamebreaker... of course not, and honestly, you get used to it  to the point where you hardly notice, but it IS there.  Some of the QB short throws look off also.  All in all though, a big, big improvement.  I am overthrowing Rice so often, his old slow ass is diving all over the field trying to make receptions for me... looks great!

Franchise Thoughts:  Basically, all I did was start one up so I could see the menus, and then try out Team Prep.  I love the new Contracts screen.  Charles Woodson is on drugs for what he wants after his current contract expires, but other than that, it looks like managing your salary cap is going to be a ton of fun this season.   :wink:   My initial thoughts on Team Prep (my most anticipated feature) are as follows:  Are you kidding me!!!!!  I fooled around with this thing for about 20 minutes, and didn't even get to Wednesday!!!!  Could they have made it any more ridiculously overwhelming!!!  Now, the GREAT news is, it will save your day-to-day template after the initial work is done.  But Lord in Heaven, it will take me HOURS to set up one week.  I really think it will take some time to evaluate this feature, and I have high hopes for it... but my initial thoughts are that it is a monstrous time-sink.  (and I don't want to hear, "I told you so" Fox... so don't even go there).   :wink:

Gameplay Thoughts:  Oh man.  Let me keep this short, or it will go on for pages.  For the most part, it is much, much, much better than last year.  And you guys spouting off how it hasn't changed much... are you seriously high when you say things like that?  It is insanely different.  The momentum alone makes it a different game entirely.  Maybe I am just a very deliberate player or something, cause the gameplay is way different to me.  Rather than go into a 5 page discertation on it, let me just say that everything feels more "realistic", if I can use that term for video football.  The stats I have gotten are IMMEASURABLY more real than anything I got last year, and that is almost completely due to the running game being reigned in, and the Defensive Line not being worthless this year.  Good teams are easier to play as than bad ones.  They are also harder to beat than poor ones.  I have lost 1 out of 5 games.  That loss was to the Falcons (in Atlanta), against the A.I., and Warrick Dunn used that turf to break away from me numerous times.  I got spanked.  I then played them in Oakland (rematch) on grass.  I contained him much better!  There IS a difference of player speed on different surfaces. QB scrambling with Donovan will be fun for Eagles players.  I know I enjoyed it while playing with my brother.  The Defensive End Speed Rush has been addressed.  Sacks will come by better play-calling now, rather than great thumb jockeys.  Defensive Backs can be awesome or clueless.  I have seen evidence of both.  More to come on that later.  My biggest concern right now (by far) is the button layout and the time you have to adjust your defense before the A.I. snaps the ball.  This one thing alone is INFURIATING.  I barely have time to move the linebackers and then call a double team, and the ball is hiked.  Forget adjusting my o-line, spying the QB (still can't figure out how to make this work), and picking the player I want.  I think I will need to prioritize, and choose what is most important.  But when you play with/against me, you will see I have my players moving all over the damn place before the ball is snapped.  I don't have time to get it all done this year, and I am constantly hitting the wrong buttons to zoom out, and switch players, etc... etc...  Oh, one neat thing is I am getting very close to blocking punts.  Never could even get close before.

Sound Thoughts:  I haven't messed with the music.  I have noticed that Dan and Peter are a bit wonky this year.  They will stop their sentences mid-thought from time to time.  They will fall behind the action (noticably) from time to time.  Berman, when doing his game reviews, will absolutely screw up and sound ridiculous from time to time.  Sounds negative huh?  Nah... I am just nitpicky about commentating and stuff.  All told it is great.  But don't expect perfection, it ain't happenin'.  Oh and the Suzy interviews... waste of disc space imo.    

Overall Thoughts:  The game kicks butt.  I am very critical of VC and Sega Sports games, which is why I said alot of negative things, but don't think I'm down on the game.  It is much better, (and more difficult in some ways) than 2k4.  I am really liking it in general.  I have a tremendous amount of stuff to get used to.  I am fumbling for buttons all over the place right now.  That should get better.  The #1 thing I don't like I have stated.  The #1 thing I do like is the way the game plays a more realistic game of football.  My stats have been fantastic.  No complaints at all with the possible exception of too many interceptions for me against the A.I.  Too early to tell, but I know I'm not THAT good of a def. coord.   :wink:

More later.  These are all very early thoughts and are subject to change.  Don't be surprised to find game bugs either... they added a crapload of new features, and with new features come bugs, there is no way around it.  Let's hope they are not significant.  You can be certain as I find them, I will tell you about it.  I love to praise VC, I also love to rip 'em!   :wink:  

I saw a bunch of you guys online last night.  It was cool.  The only online game I played, I was winning 17-0 against Panzergeist early in the 2nd quarter I think.  I took the Raiders, he took the Bucs.  I got lucky with a couple break-away plays and an interception for a TD.  The voice wasn't working, so we couldn't talk.  He left the game rather abrubptly though, so I figure he was either pissed off, or had to leave for some reason.  Anyway, I look forward to evaluating online play further.  I hope it' not a scoring fest though, I'll tell you that.

I will have my totally unbiased impressions  Tongue up sometime tonight.

Thanks Hetz and Denog.  You guys are doing great.  

The only disheartening thing is hearing how hard it is to run against the Eagles.... not from a "realism" standpoint mind you, but from a "I've got to listen to Devil gloat when Wheatley gets stuffed" standpoint.

Also, I have read that defenses are disguised better this year, not that I am any good at 'reading defenses' anyway, but do you guys concur with the defenses being harder to figure out this year?

Let me know if anyone is willing to play some multiplayer over the next few days... I have to prepare for His Dorkness to return from vacation.

Loren -

It's actually kind of funny you said that, cause I was thinking of you when Eco posted, and thought to myself, "hmmm... I am surprised AF hasn't claimed the Vikes."  I just figured you didn't want to commit to a long season.

LD

Ken - If TML hadn't already claimed the Patriots, I know Devil would be happy taking them.  But that option is out.

Honestly, he may decide he doesn't want to commit to a long season anyway, who knows.

But to be safe, you guys should reserve the Eagles for him, just in case.

It's actually nice being part of a community where we know (for the most part) the teams all the regulars like.

I'm thinking maybe we should do both, considering not everyone will want to commit to an entire season.  Some people want to play online against people they know, but they don't have the time for a full blown league.  

Maybe that is where a tournament comes in.

Just my thoughts.

So gellar, what lured you in?

Was it the hype or just our charming personalities?    biggrin

-  -  -  -

Eco - Regarding when to start...  My advice (and this is only advice) would be to let everyone get their feet wet with the game.  After all, there is always a chance a few people won't like the way it plays, and will then be very uncommitted to the league, something we can't afford.   If people have time to play and evaluate the game, and then decide to "back out", it won't hurt the league at all, cause we will have waited to actually start it.

Just a suggestion.

I was so hoping that KD or AF would have this ready for the sports season.  Alas, they are probably busy with more important things.

Anyway, don't forget to check the General Gaming Forum here at CG or the extensive thread at GG for a list of livetags.

I know I have some work to do on my friends list before the season begins.  I have not been on Live in quite some time.

So, in glancing over those screenshots a bit more, do you guys think that EACH Tournament/League is going to have it's own Stats Central type thing/page?  

If "Yes", then will these stats be automatically updated after each XBLive game that we play?

It also looks like the "Administrator" or whatever they call it is going to have a place to type in News of the Week, and Messages, and all kinds of stuff.  I mean, am I seeing that right?

I'm not sure I get it.  Can someone better explain it to me?

This just seems... I am sitting here thinking of a word, and I can't.  Well, for lack of a better word, it seems unbelievable.  

Other than writing up some news stories and from what I understand, approving trades, what does the administrator have to do?  It appears to be fully automized.  

I mean, c'mon.  This is unreal.  If I am interpreting these screen shots correctly, then it appears the toughest thing to actually do would be to schedule and play your actual game!  (not that that can't be incredibly difficult with our group, cause we all know it is).

Man, I am really going to feel like a jerk if I miss a gametime this season.  

Is it going to work like Links, where you have X days to play your game, and then after you play, you are "clear" until your next scheduled game?

I need to go read some more, but if anyone knows anything, and it isn't too difficult to type, can you help me out here; because honestly, I am not trying to up the hype-meter here, I just don't see how something this huge is getting overshadowed by some of the other features.  

Thanks.

I saw an interview she did right after Pirates came out.  She mentions the fact that she was not well endowed up top.  She was actually quite funny about it, stating that she wondered if that would ever change.  

I could tell her right now the answer is "No" unless she decides to either put on some weight or get some fakes.

Personally, I still think she is gorgeous.

She seems like a pretty cool person actually.

Thanks Eco.

For anyone interested:  There are some new video clips up at OpSports.  My particular favorite is Video Clip #8 or #9.  Whichever is the first one recorded on the 16th, I don't remember now.  (I do know it's a Broncos game).

The flow of the game is perfect.

The offensive as well as the defensive gameplay is mind-blowing.

The computer making some very nice adjustments before the ball is hiked is also great to see.

The tackling is just outstanding.

It appears that if you have the right people in the right place this year, you will be rewarded.  IE: Not as many missed tackles on defense, and some very very nice offensive line A.I.

Another thing I noticed in watching all the videos:  When a pass is thrown up to a good receiver with a db (or multiple db's) in good position, you really have no clue what the outcome is going to be.  I have seen great catches, knockdowns, and interceptions.  This is encouraging.

I am still holding my breath on some of the "other" features, but as far as gameplay goes, it certainly appears to be brilliant!

We do not have long to wait!  If you guys are halfas excited as me, you must be on the edge of your seats awaiting this one!

I just read a full bio on Norv Turner.  I am SO going to follow the Raiders this year!

Do me a favor and switch me to the Raiders for our tournament.

So I won't be able to move the ball on offense... nothing new for me.

At least I can put Woodson on T.O. - and maybe I can slow Devil down a little bit.  (wishful thinking).


Also - Simon took the Seahawks... but I don't see it on the Participants Page.  Did Simon back out?

In all honesty, I think I owe Devil a good 200 to 250 bucks by now.  He is so good at taking the plunge, and then giving honest opinions of sports games right away... therefore saving me a purchase I would most likely regret.  You da' man!

Not only did you not "...let this one come and go without noticing..." ; but you were one of the (if not the) first people on our forums to get it!

There is one there that lists ALLLLLLLLL the things you can do on defense before your opponent snaps the ball...

Double team "A"

Blitz "B"

Inside Cover "C"

Outside Cover "D"

Bump "E"

Play Loose on "F"

Move the linemen apart

Move the backers together

etc..

etc..


Can you see Me and You doing this?  Is this not going to be a total crack-up!!!

I can see it now:

LD:  "What was THAT!"

Devil: "Oh man!  I meant to blitz my Lft. OLB!

LD:  "Nope, you had him double my Fullback instead!"

Devil:  "No shit!  That left Portis wide open in the flat too!"

LD:  "Yep, look at him go!   Oops, what was THAT!"

Devil:  "What did you do!  Portis just turned around and ran right into Dawkins!   Look he fumbled!"

LD:  "No shit!  I meant to hit super dive, and instead did a backwards juke!"

Devil:  "Haha!  Got you now!  I'm going to run this back for a TD!"

LD:  "Here I come!  Better do a fancy move!"

Devil: "Oh shit!  I meant to do a stutter step but hit the spin button instead!  Out of bounds!"

LD:  "Here we go again...."

Eco:  "Hey guys... send me your V.I.P. file so I can play against you!"

LD and Devil in unison:  "NO!"




I can't wait!!!!   Tongue

Mike -

You're on!  Especially with  :twisted:  on vacation, I will need someone to practice with.   (As involved as I may seem to be, I am not very good at this game, so practice is important).

We definately need to hook up.  Let's plan on it.

Ron -  It's not that complicated.  Leave the notebook at home.   :wink:

Loren - I think they are calling it an "extended series" or something like that.  It has multiple shows coming up, and I expect they will make more depending on how it does?  Not sure.  I think it will be preceding Dead Zone each Sunday... not sure about that either though.   :?

You were one of the people I thought for sure would have seen this.

KD -

I am not in the beta, but I would love to hear more about it honestly.  Any adventures/impressions you have, I would love to read them.

I watched an 8 minute long video on EverQuest 2 on Sunday that is on Gametrailers.com.   It just looks fantastic.  

So, between these two mega-games, I think MMO fans have alot to look forward to.  

After the way CoH dominated my life for about 3 months, I am hesitant to ever play one again, but if ANY could pull me back in, it is probably one of these two games.
