  • IGN has a new video detailing the changes to GamerNet for Tiger Woods 09. The instant challenges should be a nice addition and the simultaneous online play will be especially welcome.
  • Gamespot has posted up two new videos from NBA Live 09. They show some pregame footage (though the introductions are skipped), the flipping through some of the DNA screens in the menu and about a minute of gameplay including commentary. Interestingly the tip-off has changed since the community event where it was a low camera angled up instead of an overhead camera as seen now. The first video can be found here and the second here.
  • I was surprised to stumble upon the cover for Madden 09 En Espanol which is set to release in mid-September. Bears G Roberto Garza is the cover athlete. *Insert Madden curse reference here*. At least this year the cover isn’t graced by an admitted past steroid user.

    Interesting that Garza made the cover. I see him on Telemnundo all the time.

    [quote comment="30852"]Dude. This is America. English is the common language. There shouldn’t be a Spanish Madden in America. Ea is just contributing to the problem of people not being able to assimilate in this society. English should be the Official Language.[/quote]

    First of all, America is a group of countries that go from Canada to Argentina. Second of all, you know that EA sends copies of madden around the world right? And people in latin america watch the games with spanish speaking commentators right? So having Raul Allegre or Alvaro Martin commentating on Madden 09 would be much more real for this audience than 2 broadcasters that they probably have never heard before…

    Wow is ppl like you that make the rest of the world hate us… its not a problem, our country is a “melting pot” and always will be. English is the most common language but EA is trying to appeal to the ones who cant speak english, spanish speaking ppl have every right to have madden en espanol and no they shouldnt have to learn english, it should be a choice (that is what our country is based on!)[/quote]

    James,
    Nix flutz blarney quando flue. That was my response to you. It is my own made-up languge (actually, I stole it from a George Carlin bit). The point of my foolishness is that everybody having their own language is obviously not a good idea and wouldn’t work in our society.

    Also, you should research the “melting pot” concept. The idea of the melting pot, as it pertains to American Culture, is that the melting pot melts down all metals (a metaphor for cultures) in to one singular mass. This means that cultures coming into this country assimilate to the mass, and the mass takes on some of their properties. The larger the mass (at this point, the US is pretty large), the fewer of the properties from the new material will be absorbed. What you suggest (everybody speak any language that they want) is not a melting pot, but a bag of marbles.

    That said, I have absolutely no problem with Madden in Spanish. If market research says that they can make a profit by releasing the game in Sanskrit, then I’m all for that too.

    pasta,

    can you please tell EA that they need to fix the lob pass problem. in the videos, it hapenned two times. if those passes were bullet passes, then the player would have scored much more easily
