4521  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ESPN 2K5 League [Serious Players Only] - Team request on: July 20, 2004, 04:29:29 AM
Ok, i took the 49ers on the bracket one, On this league I want to have a chance, should I be mean and pick the Eagles ?  Tongue    

If devil isn't in, I'll take the Eagles, if not, I'll take the Seahawks.  I probably won't have Internet access till tomorrow afternoon, so if it's a problem taking the eagles, put me down for the Hawks

I just learned Hollywood Video does a gamepass that is similar to BB, so I guess i'll be dropping Gamerang.

I'm thinking we should do a league instead of brackets.  You can set how many weeks to play and a time limit on when you need to finish that game.  The game controls that for you.

You know what is cool?

Well  I was going to do a poll but I don't see that option frown

Anyways what version are you going to get.

Generally FPS games suck on Consoles, however there are a few exceptions like Riddick.  

Coop doesn't really excite me so that doesn't matter to me.

I personally will be getting it for the PC, since it will have better controls, modability (yes it's a new word Tongue) and will look and play better.

that's why gamerrang and gamefly are awesome.  for $18 a month you rent 1 game at a time.  I try to finish 1 game per month (I split time with lots of pc games and already owned xbox games).  That saves me about $30 a month.

Yeah that list is pure BS. I mean, Chicago and SF both rated higher than the Packers? Right...

Bah - I'm not that high on the Eagles this year in terms of winning it all. My secondary has been gutted and I'm not sure I trust the backfield yet. I'd say they should be ranked around 8 in the league. TO is nice and all, but I'm not sure how much he helps.

I always play with the Iggles so those years in the late 90's are coming back around for me!


you'll just have 2 WR's who likes to drop balls smile

Isn't that a little misleading?

It said it shipped 2 million, not all 2million have been bought.  Or are they counting that as stores bought 2 million?

You can always skip past the cutscenes if you don't enjoy them .  I don't really care for Suzy either, but I welcome the presentation style that most games can't even touch
4539  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden/ESPN NFL on: July 05, 2004, 09:05:05 PM
I think why people enjoyed ESPN moreso than Madden because ESPN brought something new, that Madden hasn't done.  

ESPN did an excellent job with the presentation, it was like watching a game on ESPN.  But that's not the sole reason why people like ESPN.  Online is one key feature that up until now, Madden didn't have.

Espn felt played and looked better than Madden.   Everything looked incredible realistic, while Madden wasn't as pretty.  

Gameplay, ESPN had some bugs, tackling issues and AI were two components that really brought down the game.  Apparently it's fixed this year.  

I do agree that Madden had a better play book, and it looks like they will again this year.

Madden has become stale over the years, and when they added the owners mode last year, it really didn't make it any better.  Who wants to sell hot dogs.  I prefer ESPN's franchise mode, where what you do effects your game.  

Madden looks incredibly good this year, especially with it's revamped defense, but ESPN was the king of football last year, and with the $20 price tag, it  looks like it will be just as good if not better than last years.

All I ask, is that people who are signing up to play, realize it's a commitment, and if you are flaky, you are not hurting just you, you are ruining the fun of others.   Last year was really frustrating and I had serious reservations of joining this, the only saving grace is that it's a bracket, and it's not too long.  I'd love to do a league, but from past experiences (ESPN NFL, and Links) those didn't last long.  

So I reiterate, if you are going to join, please think about the longterm.

Quote from: "AgtFox"
Can I just say that Jeff Gerstmann is a tool?  He gave the game a 7.2...way too low in my opinion.  Right now I'd probably put it in the 80s, maybe low 90.  The graphics aren't the best, but when you look at the sheer size of what you can see with no loading you begin to respect the graphics for what they are.

Anyway, Gerstmann is the worst Gamespot reviewer.  He's the one that famously gave Shenmue a bad score, GS got a bunch of hate mail and then someone else had to do a new review of it and Gerstmann's review went to vapor...never to be seen again.  I just wish Gamespot had a way to look up reviews via writer, I want to see Gerstmann's list.  He has been spot on at times, but he has some glaringly bad reviews from a score perspective.

Well I do agree about the repetitiveness of the sidequests.  I have a feeling the mainquests will be short, and all you have left is the sidequests are mostly the same.    However I do think they scored it too low, I'd give it a low 8

Alright just finished this today. Wow what an amazing game. Finally a game unlike Beyond Good and Evil or Far Cry that actually has an ending. Why can't developers offer closure then just ending it. Stupid

I loved being in that mech, that was so much fun, and the dialoge the mech gives is hilarious.

I wish there was an option about not wanting to expand, so here is my vote for that smile

I personally think you should wait and focus on features that are missing.  (Trading Forum features, putting next and back arrows on your screenshot pages) stuff like that.
4558  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden: PC or Xbox? on: June 17, 2004, 05:21:54 PM
I never had any problems with the controls.  I had a MS Sidewinder that worked great before they introduced the analog features.  Then I bought the Logitech Dual Analog pad, and that turned out to be crapped, but Madden 2003 worked great on it.  When MVP 2004 came out the dual analogs started giving me trouble, turns out there's a known defect.  So I ended up getting a Saitek P800 and that worked great with MVP.  

I'm not worried with the controls.  Also my tv and xbox is in my room so I'll still be on my computer chair Tongue    

This will be my first year not buying madden for the PC.  I've owned Madden every year of it's existence on the PC.  I'm not sure why I'm buying ESPN and Madden, but because ESPN is so cheap, and with this coupon applying to Madden it's like getting 2 games for the price of 1.
4559  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden: PC or Xbox? on: June 17, 2004, 03:35:43 PM
Although I haven't owned madden on the xbox, I've played it before, and I've always felt the PC version to be better.  But from what I'm hearing, both versions are pretty much the same as far as feature wise.
4560  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden: PC or Xbox? on: June 17, 2004, 03:11:07 PM
More importantly, I'm already getting ESPN again this year as my primary football game.  

However I still enjoy Madden (well I didn't like last year's version)

I received a $15 coupon for my upcoming birthday next week from EA Store.  I can the PC version for $24 after the coupon, or get the Xbox version for $34 after the coupon.  

I've never owned madden on my xbox, because the PC looks a lot better.  But being able to play on Live is much simpler than the EA online crap that it is.  However ESPN is live enabled, and I can always rely on that.

Are there any significant differences from the PC to xbox besides graphics?  

I'm thinking of getting the xbox because the PC is selling for $39 and eventually it will go down to $29.  If I don't like the xbox I can always trade or sell it.
