5521  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN 2K5 League [Serious Players Only] - Team request on: July 20, 2004, 03:30:33 PM
To help clear things up:

Eco - Titans   ....  (League Admin)
Hetz - Packers
Denog. - Bills
Pr0ner - Chiefs
Caveman - Panthers
LD - Raiders
Ralph W - Ravens
Soulbringer - Rams
altair27 - Texans
Stiffler - Falcons
TML - Patriots  (if "In" due to start date)
Driver - Jaguars
Naednek - Seahawks or Eagles (?)
gellar - 49ers
Devil - Eagles (if "In" at all)
JeffJones - Dolphins
AgtFox - Vikings
Rage - Colts
Rowan - Bucs
programmerbob - Broncos
Tebunker - Bengals

 -   -   -   -

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.  (if we wait for TML - maybe around Aug. 20 -  This should be discussed)

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.   :wink:

Let your thoughts be known regarding the above.

Geez...you guys start up a league while I'm out of town and my team is gone...d'oh!


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
5523  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN 2K5 League [Serious Players Only] - Team request on: July 20, 2004, 09:20:35 AM
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.

5524  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN 2K5 League [Serious Players Only] - Team request on: July 19, 2004, 10:35:01 PM
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.

LD
5525  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN 2K5 League [Serious Players Only] - Team request on: July 19, 2004, 09:08:36 PM
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.

Thanks Eco!

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.

This is pretty cool.

Stiffler -  Funny post.  

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!

You're not thinking straight!! You put Woodson on TO and shut him down. Then what? How bad is it going to look for you when I post in here that Pinkston went over 100 yards and 2 TDs when we played!  :lol:

Hey Eco -

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?


Thanks.

I just don't see the need to be frustrated by an engine I already don't like.

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!


However, (and I mean this for real), for all you NCAA fans that like the game... I am happy for you guys!

On second thought - I might be OUT!

With ESPN NFL moving up to the 21st, I'll probably forego the anger and just let this one come and go without me noticing! smile



Now... did anyone REALLY think I was going to let this pass without mention?

C'mon now!  You know me better than that!

Devil -  Who on earth did you think you were trying to kid with this statement!?!

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!

You make me laugh more than you will ever know!

Anyway... as usual, I will wait about 5 or 6 days and then get your take on the game.  By then you should have a good feel for it.

BtW... how is Slugfest?  You haven't told me to rush out and buy it yet, so I am assuming it is still average?

Hey Devil -

Have you checked out some of the new screenies at OpSports?

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!"

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.

Well Destructor -

I started playing KotoR, but I ended up going with the PC version because of the graphics.   ...which sorta defeats my original question of finding a good RPG to play on the xbox....

Anyway, KotoR is different from Sudeki, and not exactly what I was "looking for" as far as games similar to Sudeki.

On a positive note however, I am now completely hooked on KotoR, and am wondering how in the world I avoided this game for so very long, considering it won like 600 Game of the Year Awards.

It is absolutely a tremendous game.... and I have only just begun.

This should occupy all my time until the release of ESPN Football 2k5  -  which is perfect!

The 4400 was on Sunday night at 9:00pm (EST)

Did anyone from Console Gold see this?

I personally thought it was pretty good.

As of now, there are about 6 main story lines... some of them intertwined.

The only real negative (in my opinion) is the female lead.  How unusual!   :wink:

I plan on watching it regularly if it stays pretty good, which so far it is.

This is copied from a post (that is copied from a post) on OpSports... and supposedly ranks the teams from lowest to highest as far as overall rating for the game this year.

I think by looking at the ranks, we can get an idea of what the numbers are. Obviously its lowest - highest. I'll also note that a few mid ranged teams share the same/nearly the same overall rating

NYG
SD
HOU
ARZ
PIT
NYJ
DET
CLE
WAS
GB
SF
CIN
CHI
DEN
MIA
STL
ATL
DAL
NO
JAX
SEA
TEN
BUF
IND
KC
BAL
OAK
TB
MIN
PHI
CAR
NE


Now, don't shoot the messenger here.  I am not saying it's true or false, I am just relaying information for anyone that is interested.  Obviously there are some funny things here if the list is reliable, but if it's accurate, I suppose it could be worse.

Since Concole RPG's aren't really my thing, and I'm talking even remotely my thing here...

Do you guys know of any others that are already out for the xbox that are like this game?  Turn Based Combat is fine with me by the way.  I am more interested in all those cool powers and skill points and stuff like that.  

I am open to suggestions as well as education on this topic, as I seriously know almost nothing about console RPG's.  I think I played Final Fantasy III for about an hour back in the day, and this Sudeki demo.... that is pretty much my experience.   :oops:

OK.  So let's see if  I can help out Devil and Eco a bit here.

In order they have been claimed:

Devil  -  Eagles

EcoLogic  -  Titans  (boo!)

AgtFox  -  Vikings

Caveman  -  Panthers

Graham  -  Packers

Naednek  -  49ers

Soulbringer  -  Rams

Gellar  -  Bengals

Denoginizer  -  Bills

Chaz  -  Patriots

stevemd  -  Dolphins  (go phins!)

pr0ner  -  Chiefs

Lockdown  -  Raiders

Wudmon  -  Ravens

Simon  -  Seahawks

Driver  -  Jaguars

Tebunker  -  Texans

-  -  -  -  -

Not too bad actually.  17 teams claimed so far.

I believe that a tournament (in the range we're looking at) needs either 16 or 20 teams.  If we hit 20, we should start.


Website   :     Tournament Homepage

Once Eco updates the Participants page, you can go there easier than coming here to view who's "IN".
