Bad AI doesn't make a bug in my opinion.

Wow.  I can't disagree more.  That's certainly one way to think 2K makes a better game though.

Quote from: Ralph-Wiggum on August 22, 2006, 03:12:10 PM

Most of those sound like bad A.I. rather than actual bugs.

I don't distinguish between the two.  It could be a monkey hitting me in the head while I'm playing for all I care, if it fuck's up my game experience, it's bad juju.

But there's a difference in having a game with some minor, but annoying bugs (like clipping, etc.) and game stopping/changing bugs (i.e. the NCAA PSP running bug or fatigue not working or Hall of Famers suddenly playing againt you). EA seems to have more of the latter type of bugs than most companies.

Uh... disagree.  2K easily had as many bugs as EA in it's final NFL edition.  The thing was, most of 2K's bugs were in Franchise mode, so most people didn't care.  Off the top of my head, things that were just flat out bad:

* Insaneo trading AI.  Way more (and often times unbelievable) trades than in the NFL.
* The whole pre-game prep stuff just flat out didn't work.  It contributed to a great deal of the problems.
* More injuries than are realistic.
* Godawful AI depth chart management (things like QBs returning kicks, etc...)
* Draft AI is... bad.  In the first round, the AI EXCLUSIVELY drafted QB, HB, T, and DEs only.  Nothing else.  Period.  This was an absolute Franchise killer.
* Off season AI in general was garbage.  Teams didn't seem to sign players for any specific reasons and many good players wouldn't be signed at all.

An EA Sports game that's buggy? It would never happen.  disgust

You know what's sad?  I'm trying to figure out the last actual major Football game (EA or otherweise) that *wasn't* buggy.  And I can't.

Basketball as a franchise is typically pretty solid, from both EA and 2K.  Hockey is a total trainwreck most of the time, particularly the 2K versions.  Though, the EA versions aren't so much buggy as they are just flat out bad.  Baseball... Sony does a nice job.  EA's last effort was ok.  2K last year was a total piece of shit.

I guess sports games are just hard to make?

The Giants aren't gonna throw screens to Tiki Barber EVERY play, so don't do it over and over in the game. Just call a realistic game of football and nobody is gonna have a problem.

Actually, I'm relatively certain that if a screen to Tiki worked 100% of the time, the Giants would be MORE than happy to call that play repeatedly. slywink

Pretty lame 'bug', if you can call it that.  I say that because something like that shouldn't be a 'bug' - it's a huge issue - and one that if a game tester had any sort of brain-power would have thought:

"Why can I run with the speed-rated 89 Vince Young so much and he's now slowing down?"

Cause he's friggin VINCE YOUNG.  Duh.

Quote from: Lockdown on August 17, 2006, 12:57:26 AM

My friend, I need to ask... is this surprising to you?.  I am not a fan of EA's football engine, but that is neither here nor there.  I would like to see them release a game where they do not drop the ball on something relatively major every year.  It comes off as shoddy.  And I think this would classify as "relatively major" to some folks. 

The bright side is, when you think about it, other than running backs and receivers coming out of games due to being tired, it's probably really not THAT big a deal to the average player.

I am bummed for the Madden fans out there though.  Hopefully for your guys sake, EA didn't blunder a bunch of more stuff that hasn't been discovered yet.

Best of luck.   

Yeah certainly not surprised... but disappointed.  I can't recall a major Madden bug that I've cared about over the past few years, so mostly things are ok.  I guess I *could* say the same about the fatigue bug, but that does matter more to me than most.  The one thing I could always count on Madden for would be that it would be considerably less broken than the competition.  I guess when there is no more competition, they don't have to be that good at it anymore.  Bastards.

And yes, I too worry about the shit that hasn't been found yet.  It's certainly dampered my hopes for the game.

Heh... lovely.  OpSports is reporting two fairly major bugs (one with a workaround, one without).

The first bug is regarding HoF players entering rosters and people starting Franchises with them.  Thankfully, this at least has a workaround and shouldn't affect folks too much (if at all)

http://forums.operationsports.com/vBulletin/showthread.php?t=179422

The second, which has no workaround, is that the players absolutely do not fatigue in the 360 version.  This is absolute shit, in my opinion.  I'm not certain it's bad enough to get me not to buy the game, but it's still totally unacceptable.  I'd like to think they can/will fix it in an update, but this is EA, and they suck at patching.

Ugh... for a guy who doesn't hate EA as much as the rest of you do, this is still a pisser.

Restaurants I go to regularly.  

I tip fairly well, so I frequently get appetizers, desserts, that sort of thing on the house.

The last time was this weekend.  A steakhouse Nancy and I go to once every quarter or so (it's a bit far from where we live) brought out an appetizer, two glasses of wine (to go with the appetizer), and gave us an extra item for dessert all without me ordering/asking for it.  Quite nice of them.

See I don't notice any of these issues, or rather, they aren't large ones.  The only one that bothers me a bit (other than the sack thing) is fumble recoveries, which is like an episode of Three Stooges playing out on a football field.  But then again, that's a lot like how real fumble recoveries are, so I don't mind so much.

No, but you get phantom sacks instead!  Also, I've seen LBs slide to make a play or knockdown/pick off a ball.


Yeah the phantom sacks are super annoying too.  Thankfully they don't happen that often and I don't have nearly the pocket presence to avoid someone who breaks free of a block anyway.  If it ain't a blitz and someone breaks free, I'm getting sacked regardless.

I just didn't like the implementation.  NFL2k5 was already very arcadey to start, and this made it more so to me.  The players moved a bit to quickly, cut to quickly, etc.  I'd personally rather see the stats dictate the game play more.


God... that just reminded me of my super #1 pet peeve with the NFL2kX gameplay.  The Superman tackle.  I swear to god some of those linebackers would actually FLY if you charged up and dove to tackle.  Like fly for 5 yards, break every law of physics, and make the tackle type flight.  SO ANNOYING.
