How's that franchise/season mode going?   :twisted:

Sorry... cheap shot, I know.   :wink:


Not a cheapshot at all.  I have a running commentary over in the sports forum detailing my progression.

FYI-I'm 7-1 with the Baltimore Ravens heading into a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars! :p

edit-I know some where upset about not having the Training Camp and Salary Cap shit in there, but I wasn't one of them.  Thats the last thing I care about in a Football game


[thread_hijack]

I must be completely misinformed... I thought I'd read that Madden on the 360 had the franchise/season mode chopped out to get the title out on release day?  Is that mode still in the game then?



Yep, the franchise and season mode is in game but is really scaled back.  None of the training camp and salary cap stuff.  It bother alot of folks but didn't hurt me at all

Cinn. Bengals at Baltimore Ravens

This was a match-up between two teams with only one lose a piece.  Whomever won would have the lead in the AFC North. The game is a defensive struggle from the get go.  Neither teams can establish the run and short passes seem the order of the day.  My Ravens are able to get two fields goals by the middle of the second quarter.  With less the 2 min left in the game the Ravens finally able to establish a run game.   Jamal Lewis caps the quarter with a 25 yd run for a TD 13-0 Ravens

Third quarter opens up with the Ravens getting the kick-off.  B.J. Sams fumbles and the Bengals recover deep in the Ravens territory.  This seems to unnerve the Ravens as the first play from scrimmage is a quick pass from Carson Palmer to Chad Johnson for a easy TD. 13-7 Ravens up.  The Next kick-off goes off without a hitch.  The first play from scriammage the Ravens QB is sacked and he fumles.  The ball  is recovered by the Bengals who score. 14-13 Bengals

After this there would be no more scoring from the Bengals as the Ravens finally clamp down on the Bengals in thier house.  The Ravens eventually win with sticking with the run.  Jamal Lewis ends up with 105 rushing and 3 TD.  Final score 27-14 Ravens

Next up the Jacksonville Jaguars

I still find it amusing that many of you bash the PSP when it hasn't been out as long as the DS.  

Just seems rather short-sighted, but to each their own I guess.  I enjoy my PSP and find that I am getting my money worth and in the end thats all that matter to me :p


On the time aspect, well, the PSP's been out almost as long, and at least as long as the time that passed by the time the DS hit its stride.  But in addition to that, I also recall people ripping on the DS when it launched for not having many games, but those same people giving the PSP a pass because the tech was so "cool".

Your second point, however, I can't argue with.  slywink  That's what it really comes down to.  I can always agree with someone who simply says they prefer something, but I have a hard time resisting arguments when people start throwing around hard and fast statements about the worthlessness of, say, the DS or the Revolution.  It's just like the people who were originally ripping the X-Box apart just because it was done by Microsoft, when the evidence was in place that they were putting together a solid gaming machine.  (Which is what it turned out to be)




I don't see many people giving the PSP a pass due to the tech stand-point, but I do see your point.  

As a side note My 11yr old niece has just requested a DS from me for XMAS.   Sigh, the blood traitor slywink Tongue

Why'd this turn into a PSP vs DS bash?  Give the PSP another 6-8 months, and we'll see.  The DS took a long time to come into its own, the PSP should be given the same chance I think.



So if I understand right we should give an existing system (the PSP) a few more months before we declare it a failure but we can declare a system which isn't even out yet (the Revolution) a failure right now?


 I don't think anyone is declaring the Revolution a failure, but most of us being savvy gamers just don't seem to be buying into Nintendo new direction.  


For a next-gen console to many of us it just doesn't seem very nextgen.  Unless you call a "wacky" new controller next-gen that is?

Well, I use my PSP everyday! I listen to MP3 on my way work since I take Mass Transit.  Also, when I break it out to play Madden or Xmen Legends it seems to impress everyone around me.  


Lets not forget the the DS is now just considered coming into its own.  I'm sure if I looked I can find tons of threads bashing it due to its weak initial line up of games.  Some of the better PSP games are just now being released.

Some of you have some very short memories when it comes to the DS.  Heck, the WiFi feature of the DS just got support if I'm correct.  The PSP had it since launch and is only getting better

I'll Play


MADDEN 06 2005-2006 Season

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

I'm 5 games into the season  with the Ravens at this point 4-1 going into a grudge match with a division rival.  I built up a 14-7 lead going into the half with Jamal Lewis running well.    By the end of the 3rd its 21-14 Ravens up.  It stays this way til I missed a 48 yd FG with 50sec left on the clock.  Big Ben drives the field and ties the game up at 21 even with a perfect pass to Hines Ward.  OT- The Steelers win the toss and I stop them  three and out.  Ensuing kickoff I  take back to the 50 yrd line!  A. Wright connects with Todd Heap and Mark Clayton to put them with in FG range.  Instead of kicking the field goal cause I'm  kicking into the wind, so I drive to  1 yrd line.   A.Wright fakes to Jamal Lewis and give the FB for the WIN! 27-21 Ravens win

Ravens 5-1

Next up Cinn. Bengals

I mean, yeah, I can understand the fact this console shouldn't be grouped with the 360/PS3.  It doesn't offer their level of graphical power.

And I can understand how people wouldn't want one (at this point in time).  You're going to be getting totally unique games and frankly, we have no clue what they're going to offer.

But slap me sideways if you disagree, but as a gamer, I couldn't be happier with this new console.  It's not just another upgrade, it's entirely new.  My initial thoughts would be that gamers, as a whole, would be excited/interested in the Revolution; that such a large company would be willing to take a risk and try something incredibly new (Microsoft being on the complete opposite end of the spectrum which is perfectly OKAY, so please don't flame me).  

The Revolution doesn't REPLACE any of my next-gen console purchases, but it sure as hell belongs in my household right next to whatever next-gen consoles I decide to purchase.




While you have some very valid points I think many are just burned out by Nintendo.  While they want to focus on "kiddie" games that in many ways just don't appeal to me.  

Granted RE4, Soul Calibur , Geist and the rest are the exception not the norm.  This might not bother you, but many doesn't like Nintendo tight fisted control.  It was understandable in the mid 80's and 90's when Nintendo was fresh out the gate after the Atari fiasco, i.e. bad games flooding the market.


Ninentdo hasn't appealed to me since I jumped from the orginal Ninentdo to the Sega.

The DS has been out abit longer than the PSP and it has just now come into its own.   Instead of slamming the PSP maybe you should acknowledge that at least.



Also, PSP is starting to get some good games.

Seriously, I think Nintendo is making a mistake.   I guess there is a market out there for them, but letting Sony and MS duke it out is not a good idea.  

Must gamers expect the Next Gen systems to look great and play even better.

I would say that PoPoLoCrois is one of the best up-to date RPGs for the PSP. The translations are good and the text doesn't overlap just like PoPoLoCrois. If you are deciding whether to get PoPoLoCrois or The Legend of Heroes, I would suggest to get PoPoLoCrois first and get The Legend of Heroes later.

And the other one is Wild Arms:Alter Code F

Wild Arms Alter Code: F is a good revisit to a classic RPG. The battle system remains a fairly neat thing to play with, and the storyline--featuring demons, elflike people, ancient technology, and swords and firearms all wrapped up in a world with a pseudo-Western feel--remains unique and interesting.- Gamespot.com

The PoPoLoCrois saga, first seen on the original Playstation and continued for PS2, goes portable with an adventure built specially for PSP. A decade ago, an ice demon attacked the Kingdom of PoPoLoCrois. As a heroic white dragon banished the Ice Demon to the World of Darkness, the queen of PoPoLoCrois fell into a deep sleep. Her son, Prince Pietro, must band together with a group of friends on a quest to awaken his mother. Strategically explore a grid layout and battle in a turn-based RPG system. Use magic, attack in tandem, and call in fighting beasts for backup. Beginners can use AI-based, computer-controlled combat, making this an adventure playable by all.
