Shoot him a PM over on BC... I'm more than happy to open up the league to 2 more.  Just get me both of your email addresses if you want in.

If there are two people, I can be persuaded to allow 2 more into my BC/#gg league (would take it from a 10 person to a 12 person).  Our draft is Sunday at 1:30 PST.

I believe Aenima over at BC was interested as well, but I had to turn him away cause we couldn't find a 12th.

I only broke one tackle on that play.  The game decided none of your players would pursue Frank Gore, because he is awesome.  Also I am busy tonight with the BC poker night.

Man you, were up 14-10, and I had just subbed Vince Young in when that DDE hit me. I wouldn't call that one a win you bastard, not my fault my 360 is a peice of shit!!!!

Bill Harris has a pretty good post on his blog about some of the bad design decisions in the Superstar mode.

Yeah I found that to be pretty accurate... SS mode is cool in theory, and is fun if you play certain positions, but TOTALLY BALLS otherwise.

8351  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How about some GT Madden 07 impressions! on: August 23, 2006, 04:37:16 PM
I actually like the depth chart... pretty easy to navigate.

Roster updates happen when you go online.  It's a standard thing for EA games... you connect to the online lobby and it prompts you to download a new roster.

Hit stick should be made *just* before you come in to hit a player.  It's a bit of risk/reward... you can lay a big hit, but it also makes you super succeptible to jukes.  I don't do it unless I have someone behind me to back me up.

8352  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How about some GT Madden 07 impressions! on: August 23, 2006, 05:59:39 AM
Ok... so thoughts thus far.

1)  It's not as good as I was hoping it would be.
2)  It's not as bad as many of you were expecting it to be.

What it does well:
* Graphics are phenominal.  Better than NCAA by a few steps.
* Gameplay is a step better than NCAA.  If you don't like Madden/NCAA style gameplay though, this game will do nothing to change your mind.
* "Mario" running is pretty much gone.
* AI at All-Madden level is really rather good.
* Franchise trade AI seems good so far.

What it doesn't do well:
* As mentioned above, the presentation is absolute trash.  Worse than NCAA even (by a significant margin to boot)... and I thought that was pretty barebones.
* The fatigue, no matter WHAT the PR people say, is totally broken at this point.  It's not the UI for showing it that's the problem, it's just that it isn't in the fuckin game at all.  Weak EA, WEAK.
* Franchise has no major features in it, and the UI is pretty bad as well.  It's not that it's missing anything, it just hasn't really added anything great.  The salary cap figures are wrong once again, which is nothing new for Madden.
* The Superstar mode, for as cool as it could be, as some fatally bad flaws and terrible documentation.
* Documentation in general is godawful.  It's the same as NCAA.
* The playbooks haven't changed since... I believe 2001.
* The rosters are attrociously bad.  I mean, I get the whole idea of there being a roster freeze to get the game out, but HOLY CRAP are these out of date.  Might as well wait until official updated ones come out before you start a Franchise.


Final thoughts for the night - it's fun.  It's broken in a few aspects, but it's overall pretty damn fun.  I don't like it as much as NCAA though... yet.  Time will tell.

Yeah, it was pretty smooth.

The radio announcer...person was silent on the replay, if I recall correctly.

I never use the cover-ball button.  Maybe I should get used to using the right bumper more often biggrin

Oh, by the way, it's anybody's guess if a strip button is in the game or not.  EA's absolutely piss-poor shit instruction manuals continues.  You may read about jumping the snap (which I think is lame), but I'm not sure run / pass committing is in the manual.  Ugh, why must you cut corners on your manuals, EA?

It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to cycle positions in the depth chart menu.  I shit you not.

Strip is in the game. I am looking at the manual and it lists swat ball as being the "A" button. Covering up with the RB is absolutely essential in this game.

I thought swat ball meant lunge for it in the air rather than go for the pick?

So did I.

I can run on Madden.  I believe in the GG league a few years ago, I ran for half the game consecutively against someone to prove the fact that the running game is not broken.  It helped that he was running nickel and quarter defenses at me, but still... it's not impossible.  It just requires a very specific level of patience.
