    Why does everyone see so freaking fast.

    • Jmlippe

      well it is the nfl

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bobby-Schonger/100000306175444 Bobby Schonger

      idk i guess they have good eye hand coordination 

    • Infemous

      game is just too damn fast. They need to set the default speed to SLOW. The game’s positives are made to look bad just because of that (and the seemingly ridiculously easy difficulty).

      SO, EA. I propose you set the default speed to SLOW, allow Online Franchises to select these variables btw. And that in future you showcase your games on a difficulty that doesn’t make a mockery of your advertised ‘improved defensive AI.’

      A safety with his back to the ball getting owned by McCluster for a deep strike TD is not acceptable.

      After being excited I’m now apprehensive. When is the demo likely to drop? and can we pleeeeease get some info on Online Franchise soon?

      • Eagleyedesigns

        You can adjust the game speed to whatever you want.  You’ve been able to do it for three years now.  The difficulty was set on pro for the E3 demos and the game still has 12 weeks to go, I’m sure it’ll be tweeked up.  No demo until 2nd week in August.  Online Franschise info is in July, pay attention.  And who gives a shit about that anyway?

        • http://www.facebook.com/ravon Seuss Mayer

          swish

        • Infemous

          thanks for the answer.

          I do know that you can adjust the speed, and I will. Question is, will we be able to do that for online franchise???

          Why is the game set to Pro at E3? What kind of chumps do they think will be at E3? Like seriously, newbs who’ve never played Madden start on All Pro. As I said it makes a mockery of the claims of ‘improved AI’. All I’m saying. We don’t get a good look at one of the key improvements because the game is being showcased on baby mode.

          Thanks for the demo time, too far away though :(

          Pay attention to what? I haven’t seen anyone say that before you, but thanks.

          And a lot of people give a shit about it because unlike a lot of suckas some people like to play franchise in a challenging environment. The AI is too damn shit to be a challenge.

          • Papelbon5821

            Omg shut up about online franchise they need better gameplay first and your worried about online franchise? Shut up

      • Bposey31

        shut up the game is good they need to fix those corners and safteys but the speed is good enough. how about you change it when you get it

      I don’t agree – I felt like last year Madden 11 was too slow in comparison to real NFL footage, and I want the kind of speed authenticity that I am seeing that was also in NFL 2k5. Madden 10 was a welcome speed change next to the hyper and arcady-feeling Madden 09, but it is time for a change.

    • Eagleyedesigns

      What the fuck do you care?  You think EA is garbage anyway…Fuckin’ loser.

      • zzz

        I KNOW it’s garbage. You just won’t believe it, but it’s there year after year…

  • http://twitter.com/vlnj13 vlnj13

    Looks awesome, but the new defensive AI failed on the TD at the end. But love the catch animation there, and the hit to knock the ball away earlier! 

    • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

      I noted a few instances where safety AI made bad mistakes.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Gibson/622062514 Ryan Gibson

        I noticed WRs able to split the two deep safeties. I think you will have to really watch this  position.

      • http://twitter.com/vlnj13 vlnj13

        I wonder if they spent so much attention to defenders being aware outside of their zone that now they kind of forget what is in it? Interesting paradox…

      • TAMFYWAY

        PASTAPADRE r we goin to get the sideline view to play with that they have on the kickoff, their r many of us who been waitn on this sideline view from since the Tecmo Bowl days and the sideline view they have on the kickoff is perfect and looks *****AWESOME*****! only if we could play in this sideline view it would really be great. EA have yet to realize that 1 of the reasons what made the Tecmo Bowl game so fun to play was the sideline view which is the real camera angle the NFL is watch on T.V. and would make playing from the left or the right side true to the game on change of the ball possession what we the user have yet to get on Madden from the game came out.  Lets take a look at interception in Madden from the back angle view the time it takes the camera to rotate is fun factor pause we the user is missing out on while the camera is rotating what doesn’t happen in football, speed really shines from the sideline view and that is where you could tell an see the difference between fast and slow, lets take for example the 100m dash race on T.V. if the camera angle use to be from back on we wouldn’t really see the difference between the winner and the loser in the race all we would see is legs look like its moving fast and thats what we r getting in Madden. PASTAPADRE, OPERATIONSPORTS, EASPORTS, AND THE WHOLE MADDEN COMMUNITY PLEASE PUT THE SIDELINE VIEW AS A CAMERA ANGLE ON THIS GAME AS A OPTION FOR US USERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Yeah the videos look really good besides that touchdown. It really turned me off when the defender was just standing there with his back to the ball..

    How was that NOT a fumble on part two about 2:13 in…No arm moving forward at all. That was one thing they lacked in 11 that was not fixed it seems.

    Also looks like there might not be side line INTs, I hope I’m wrong.

    • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

      Yep I noted that happening a few times.

    • http://twitter.com/vlnj13 vlnj13

      I agree, but it could be 1. Tuck Rule 2. Just challenge it because real life referees are just as bad! 

  • Chris

    What is the difficulty setting of this video pastaa? Thanks so much for these!!

    • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

      I think its just on default difficulty.

  • Ghost of John Madden

    No pass rush, piss-poor coverage, and and even better running game than last year.

    Looks terrible

    • Chris

      Pasta says the game was on default difficulty which is “pro”. I dont think you will see much of that on All-Pro or All-Madden..

    • Srsly

      Well, since its the default settings which is “pro” and thats the pick up and play difficulty I guess I’ll say the D is good enough because the videos pasta has been posting has been low scoring for PRO difficulty… or pasta isn’t good at the game.

    looks like PA  is still broken, hopefully they can fix it by the time the game comes out

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Gibson/622062514 Ryan Gibson

      PA, did not seem broken. I pulled them off without getting sacked. Just forgot to run as much (even though I was averaging over 6 yards per carry) to set it up. Also harder to pull off when your opponent is staring down you play calls!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bobby-Schonger/100000306175444 Bobby Schonger

        ooh ok just by the watching the game it looked like most PA’s resulted in sacks, but if you say so. thank god if PA’s were as bad as last year id have a fit.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bobby-Schonger/100000306175444 Bobby Schonger

    eric weddle- here dexter ill duck and not make a play on the ball so you can score
    dexter mcluster- thanks bro
    although i did like dex’s catch animation

  • Jz

    This game looks like trash. Looks like a broken game. Football season is already ruined and the worst Madden yet just makes it even worse. I will be enjoying college football though and NCAA Football. Shame my Packers win the super bowl when the NFL goes to chit.

    • Jpdavis1982

      What game are you looking at? Oh I know you’re one of those people programmed to hate Madden. In the past yes this game has disappointed, but it’s just ignorant not to notice just how much this game has improved. Especially considering how much it has improved in one year.

    • Eagleyedesigns

      Whatever, trick.  You’ll be lined up at your local Gamestop at 11:30PM on August 29th acting like a 10 year-old school boy like we all do when this shit drops.  Quit kiddin’ yourself, douchbag.

  • Kdarnell

    Everything has looked beyond great in all these vids..te only thing I’d change is the speed. Every QB moves like Vick…it all just seems so sped up. I’m sure they’ll put the option in to slow it down like they have in recent years.

    • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

      It is quicker than last year, but I think that comes across more drastically on video then when playing it where the speed ‘felt’ good to us.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Gibson/622062514 Ryan Gibson

    I played three games with the Chargers on Wednesday. I have to say the game feels better than ever. Some things I noted:
    The sticks are really sensitive giving you greater control of maneuvering players without relying on spins, jukes, etc. I ran along the sidelines for a TD and my guy was pretty squirrelly, but I think it won’t be hard to get use to.
    Playing defense, it is important not to get out of position to make the tackle.
    Running is fun. You can see holes open up, and RBs are not going to get stuck behind blockers anymore. Also saw upfield blocks knock down secondary which is cool to see the run play develop.
    Open field running feels great, and giving chase also feels great.
    QBs are a bit too fast and effective on the run. I had issues running down Brees, and Brees chased down Anton Cason after he made pick (didn’t think that was realistic)
    Using the stick to guide passes felt good. I had a streak route where I was slow to throw and decided to purposely under-throw it, and Vincent Jackson came back for the catch and beat the tackle to gain 3 yards for the TD. That was really cool.
    Tackles are much crisper and I saw same fantastic new animations. I couldn’t hear the games, but I think the sound will really bring out the tackles.
    New presentation is really nice, but I was habitually skipping them.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ravon Seuss Mayer

      were you able to see ryan matthews rating? (fingers crossed)

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Gibson/622062514 Ryan Gibson

        I did not check that out, and I did not play any other team to compare to, but I think he got some love because he ran better than he did in real life (and he didn’t fumble).  I was averaging 6-7 carry with him.

    • Carznajn

      the reason for the manuvering “improvment” cause the guy looks like he can cut on a dime with no negative effect. the forum wants footplanting not a crazy zig zag like a fucking pinball. who needs a juke if you can run like that. good job on the rest of your findings i hope all the people there vocalized what your saying here so it can be addressed.

  • SENZ

    I think it’s cute that after 12 years people think “this will be the year EA fixes Madden!!”

    It’s never the case, it always is a broken mess. People that love the game are just NFL junkies who can’t go without an NFL fix, and EA knows it, which is why they keep shoveling shit at you.

    • Josh

      Man we all know that EA has shafted us for years on Next Gen but you have to admit this years game looks good.  I know it’s way overdue but better late than never.  I know bashing Madden is the “cool thing to do” but you can’t deny that this game looks good.  Does it still have issues?  Yes, but I don’t know how people can say the game is “shit”.  SMH

      • tish

        Actually it does not look good at all. I’m not blindly bashing madden, I just don’t get swept up by their yearly trickery. They’re pulling the same stunts they do every year to get people hyped. I can clearly watch these videos and see that the gameplay is shit. The game will get stale within a month regardless of how good the random person sitting in the 16th row looks.

        • Anonymous

          Wouldn’t it make more sense to point out (and cite specific examples from videos) of things you dislike? Saying “It sucks!” carries the same weight as someone saying “It’s great!”. Without providing examples, each statement is worthless.

        • zzz

          yup.. people just want to believe the hype and not really open their eyes.

      It’s not like the OS people are anyone to talk. They’re a bunch of morons. From Roadman who is the biggest EA sheep known to mankind, to rgiles who thinks he’s a mod or whatever kind of nosey nutjob he decides he is for that day, to Bezo who keeps declaring he’s too old for games yet keeps coming back to complain about how Madden isn’t the exact replica of football and he’s a self-proclaimed football genius who doesn’t realize that there are many things that can’t be replicated in a game yet due to technology limitations, to Adembroski an “assistant designer” (rolling eyes) who was nothing more than a naive Madden cheerleader for ages, got hired with no experience or game making ability of any kind (shows you how smart EA’s hiring practices are), and shows up on the board to correct people on development concepts he doesn’t have the slightest understanding of since he’s never programmed a single thing in his life and has no skill to do so.

      Then you’ve got the mods who under the direction of OS are clearly doing everything they can to defend EA from any valid criticism. Operationsports is a joke full of morons.

    Hey, Pasta do you know if the clutch ratings were up to date at E3 or what? I noticed that in your picture, you had Bradford as Clutch, but then EA put an ‘official’ one as not clutch.. I figured yours was probably more recent, but do you expect that players might change or no?

    • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

      Supposedly they are still open to making changes, plus we’ll see that in roster updates.

  • Josh

    Thanx for the vids Pasta!  Your vids are by far the easiest to make out from the E3 vids I’ve seen.  By any chance will you be able to give feedback to EA?  If so, please mention that the Quaterbacks are way too fast.  They can scramble out of the pocket way too fast & it gives the game an arcade feel.  If they can tone that down along with touching up some of the footplanting (I still noticed occasional sliding) then this game will be the best ever.  Keep the vids comin Pasta!

      EA released one featuring their D -Line. Look at the EA youtube channel. The only thing was, they kept calling a 5-2 Engage Eight three times in a row and didn’t audible against a 4 wide spread which resulted in big yardage.

    I’m getting an NFL 2K vibe from all the videos I’ve seen thus far with the physics and graphics as well (except the graphics are better than 2K’s).

    Anyone who’s played at E3 vs the CPU, can they PUNT?

    I’ve seen two videos with the same as the last decade of punting through the goalposts.  This is a game killer to me, field position is huge in football and is severely hindered by the CPU’s inability to do it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ryan-Gibson/622062514 Ryan Gibson

      I didn’t play the CPU, but I can tell you that the new kicking meter makes it much easier to get touch on power, and a little trickier on accuracy.

    I know the Safety looked dumb on that last TD….But take it from a Semi-Pro player. Safeties who’s name is not Darren Sharper or Ed Reed DO make bone head plays like that from time to time. Some lack the ball awareness/location skills to stop plays like that, especially with the back turned. I’ve seen it happen in many a NFL game, especially with DB’s. I know it looks stupid when it happens in the video game but some defensive coaches actually preach…

    “You gotta be stupid to play defense”
