4205  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My new Car! Well slightly used... on: October 22, 2005, 08:09:36 AM
but you wouldn't know the difference until you saw the odometer.  Early in October I got back from a business confrence in Dallas TX, and my girlfriend picked me up at the airport.  Since we haven't seen each other in a week,  we thought it would be nice to go out for dinner and see a movie.  We had some time to kill before the movie, so we decided to look at used cars, since I was planning on buying one within the next 6 months.  I really wanted to get a 2006 Toyota Scion, but it was just going to cost more than I wanted to spend, and figured it would be smarter to get a car that's only been out for a year or two.

We went to carmax just to look, and well, after 2 hours, this is what I got.

Blue book was listing this 2004 mazda 6 for around $19,920, and I got it for around $16,800.  Absolutely no pressure from carmax, and it was actually a pleasant experience all around.

It has 25K miles on it (about average) and my miles per gallon is city 22, hwy 29

It's sporty looking, but it has loads of space, unlike my previous car (celica, it was really cramp, especially in the backseat)  

Anyways this is my new toy, and I love it.

Alright, another 3 week break.  This is what ruined lost for me last year.  WAY TOO MANY INTERUPTIONS IN THE SEASON!  It's only the 4th or 5th episode and they already interupting it.  Does ABC have the World Series this year?  I'm trying to figure out why.

They are running a rerun of the first episode of this season from what I can gather.

They already did that on the 2nd week.

How about that Colts defense?  By far and away tops in the league.  Devil and I were discussing this, and it is amazing how far the Indy defense has come.  

Umm, they played the niners.  What did you expect?  I'm suprised the niners held them to 14 points in the 1st half

It's very hard to die on the normal difficulty.  Felt like a console game at that level.  Graphics were good, don't think they were great, but definetly an improvement over the original.  I think I've reached that point of getting tired of this genre.  Hell, my video gaming time is pretty nonexistent these days.

Classy Ken, way to show us how the niners have handled the adversity.

When your team goes 2-14 for the season, and you see your team beats a long time rival where everyone including me honestly Tongue has written them out from winning, come talk to me.

Until then,

4233  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden 2k6 on: August 13, 2005, 06:37:13 AM
well said Agt_Fox. Most people who bash Madden is because they have some hatred of EA.  They don't admit it, they roll back on "oh, there's nothing new on EA, it's practically the same game"  Well you can say the same thing about the ESPN series and any other Football series out there.  You rarely see a huge revolution of any sports game from one year to the next.  One major reason is the engine.  Sports games in general will typically use the same engine for 2-3 years before starting from scratch.  This is mainly because they don't have time to make new engines every year after year.  They don't have the luxury of other non sport devolpers who can take 2-3 years to make a new engine.  
Think about it for a while, I doubt you can name more than 3 non-games/franchises that releases a sequel every year.  

ESPN has many good things about it, mostly on the presentation side, while Madden has many good things about it as well, mainly on the gameplay.  I think next year, there will be a major step ahead for the franchise since they will now have the proper time to add in the ESPN and NFL licenses.  Not only that, they have the Xbox 360 now.  More options are now available to them.

Quote from: "Nick Bean"
naednek I am going to have to disagree with you big time on this one. Although EA has certain way of putting out the same game over and over, Fight Night and Tiger Woods are amazing. People knock Madden because there have been better football games on the market since QB Club on the N64. When the 2K series started on Dreamcast, the fellas at EA really started looking stupid. Madden has been riding on its name for 10 years (97-06). People don't love the game, they love the name and guys on the cover. I did however buy Madden because those bastards gave me no other choice. I wish Visual Concepts would sign back on with EA and take the best from both games and turn Madden back in to the football Juggernaut it once was.

If you could combine ESPN and Madden then that would make a perfect football game.  ESPN was great for the atmosphere, Madden was great for gameplay.

I loved ESPN 2K4 over Madden 2k4.  ESPN 2K5 was purty, but it didn't play a good game of football, like the previous year.

So, I'm not incredibly biased, I've followed and played more of the Madden series than any other football games.  But to say nothing has changed from the previous years is a bit rediculous.  EA has always added  new features that changes the game from the previous year.  Madden isn't perfect, but overall it does a good job.
4236  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden 2k6 on: August 09, 2005, 12:53:45 PM
don't see how a "8.2" is considered blowing it.  As they have said many times before, next years version will have the changeover.  They were already too far into development when they acquired the NFL rights.  They added some stuff to this years, but next year you should see more of a change, with new NFL exclusive stuff, and the ESPN brand.

People bash Madden just for the sake of bashing, because it's made by EA.  Try the game before knocking it or praising it (yes I can take my own advice Tongue )
