Man I was looking at the Giants recievers and they all suck. Can you see free agents from the website. Didn't look like you could..



Yeah, picking up free agents seems to be the one thing you can't do from the web site. It even lets you set up trades.

You should be able to pick up free agents from the website. Go to rosters, select add/drop players, and it will show a list of your players and a list of the free agents. This list can be sorted by position, name, or the players overall rating. Your players will have a red x to drop them, and free agents will have a green check mark to pick them up.

Unless I am just completely missing it, I don't have an option for add/drop players. Might be commissioner only?
7402  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / "The Asylum", the most unapolagetically bad movie production company ever on: August 20, 2009, 05:58:43 PM
While browsing Netflix I came across a movie called "The Transmorphers", about giant robots on earth that can transform...er...transmorph. I had to know more, so I looked it up on IMDB and found out that it was made by a production company called "The Asylum". They have a fairly long history, but while they started out just making schlock, in recent years they have just taken to churning out movies based on current blockbusters, in some cases just barely changing the name. Examples:

Transmorphers: Fall of Man (2009)
The Terminators (2009)
The Day the Earth Stopped (2008)
100 Million BC (2008)
War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave (2008)
2012 Doomsday (2008)
I Am Omega (2007)
30,000 Leagues Under the Sea (2007)
Universal Soldiers (2007)
Invasion of the Pod People (2007)
Transmorphers (2007)
Snakes on a Train (2006)
Pirates of Treasure Island (2006)
The Da Vinci Treasure (2006)
When a Killer Calls (2006)

I just bought BFBC and I really can't see any huge flaws with it. Maybe because I play for fun and not for competition slywink.


Well, the biggest flaw was the lag, which doubtfully exists now that community is a lot smaller. I know Hark also finds the hit detection to be really sketchy, but I have a hard enough time hitting any target any time that I don't notice that smile

 The reason I stopped playing BC was because GT people were playing less often and I found that it was rare that I would wind up in a squad with random people that had their mic on and wanted to work together. The big maps are great, but there's nothing more boring than continually spawning at the base and having to haul ass all the way back to the objective. I am looking forward to BC2 because I like the weapons and classes and point and patch systems. Single player was pretty fun, too.

I wonder why they are showing so much of the movie. They supposedly showed like 40 minutes at comic-con, and at E3 he spent like 20 minutes talking about the plot. I like to go see movies not knowing what's going to happen.

Really? I was looking for it when that stupid field goal happened. It probably wouldn't have let me challenge it anyway.

How do you guys get videos uploaded like that?


When you are inside the game, pause and go to the highlights menu and you can pick a play to use to create a highlight.

After you finish the game, use the main menu (I think it is in the My Madden sub-menu) to view your saved highlights. You can choose your replay and upload it. It will go to your EA Sportsworld account (which you may need to create online and link to your gamertag - might want to do that first).

I joined this morning before leaving for work. The online franchise web site is very cool - it lets you make trades, set depth charts, etc. There are some odd things, such as the depth charts not being pre-populated with the game's current settings and it showing that there are a bunch of Tuesday night games, but it does say it is in "beta" smile

Yeah, I checked out the website when I got to work this morning. Very cool. In game it looks like a commishioner doesn't have much power, but it looks like all the power has been put into the website. Good. If I have to do some crazy corrections to the rosters, I would much rather do it on the internet than through the xbox. I just wish that I could invite people to join the franchise from the website. If you can, I didn't see it.

What is the URL?

Bad Company 2 delayed to March 2010. Guess that is for the best, though, because it was originally scheduled to come out within a month of MW2.

I forgot to mention that I had a facemask penalty when I played earlier. I looked at the replay and you could clearly see the defender pulling on the facemask. Very cool.

I'm pretty sure the line moves are still in but they just don't explain it anywhere. Moving the right stick seems to do something at least. Or I could be imagining it. slywink I was playing with

I think you might be right because I was playing around with it and saw my lineman try to muscle his way through the o-line - there needs to be a better manual than the "cheat sheet" they give with the DVD case. I have a feeling I'll be picking up the strat guide.
7419  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Madden 10 Impressions on: August 18, 2009, 01:57:24 AM
I haven't done any research into it, but I was surprised they took out lead blocking, since that was a cool feature. They also took out defensive lineman power moves (swim move, etc.) They did, however, put strafe back in for the defense for all difficulty levels (in '09 you could only do it for rookie and pro, which I didn't understand).

The thing I really miss are the training camp minigames (I'm not sure what year that went out). They really taught you the controls for the individual players, including punting and kicking. Now they have the virtual trainer, which doesn't do much, and the weird 50 yard dash and bench press things.

Achievements are also kind of interesting this year - you have to be playing all-pro to get any of them.

okay got my rank 50


been trying to get the squad avenger postcard but its slow going,sometimes when i avenge someones death it comes up avenger bonus,sometimes it doesn't..not sure why

i do know that when i get this postcard i am never being in a squad again unless its with friends...they are all dumb as fuck

haven't got a clue why people who spend the entire game in planes want to be in a squad,as we can never spawn on him,and when we can he is on the aircraft carrier waiting for another plane to appear...annoying,why can't they just go it alone

i got 10 squad avenges tonight..so that takes it to a grand total of...10,that i know of crybaby

If it took you 5 days to get to 50 it is going to take me forever

I was always bummed that he left his audience behind when he could have kept following his character types into college, their 20's, 30's, etc. I don't know why he went in the direction he did, primarily making kids movies. It's also interesting that he completely stopped directing quite a while ago. He had an incredibly solid run in the 80's and I will always keep coming back to those films. I'd like to think that despite the setting, high school kids today can still relate to 16 Candles, Breakfast Club, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller, etc.

I've read the original story - it's not really suited for a feature length movie. It has kind of a funny twist at the end, but it's pretty short and low on action.

People have talked about protecting the screen, but it seems like it would be very easy to build in a thin cover that swings around and clips to the back when you are using the device. I don't know if that's what they'd do, but it seems logical.

They must have a lot more ranks in 1943 than Bad Company if you haven't hit top rank yet. I believe it took me just over 2 days playtime to hit top rank in Bad Company and I don't exactly earn points very quickly.

Bailing out of an airplane and watching it go boom and take out a couple of enemies with it = priceless.

Do you get points for that?

That's a good question. I think I've bailed out of a jeep and it has hit people and I've scored the kill and the points. And I've noticed that there seems to be a 'period of ownership' that when you destroy a vehicle you still get the destroy a vehicle points even though the enemy has jumped out of it.

So I'm guessing that technique is a pretty effective way to get kamikaze kills. If I could aim the plane that well I might even try it.  nod

There's a video on Youtube of a guy pulling way up in the air, diving straight down onto enemies and jumping out before the crash, and he gets points for the kills. The video is of him doing this over and over again. There might be a window of time where the kills count (like the fact that you can still get vehicle destroy points for a period of time after the enemy has exited) but I don't know.
