    After all these years, it’s refreshing to finally hear Pasta, Owen Good, Chris Sanner and Samit acknowledge how poorly Madden compares to games like The Show and NBA2k, which are on a whole other level than Tiburon football. Madden didn’t just start to suck this year, but it’s better to hear it said late than never.

      Honestly couldn’tagree more.

    • Iown You

      This game is just a boring, glorified patch. For a 25th Anniversary product, this felt more like a divorce.

    Pastapadre i love the podcast man its good to hear grown men speak on a football game and take it seriously..I listened to the entire podcast …..but this i figured out… its not even my opinion…. when it was time to put a bow or ribbon on the game …i wish everyone would open there eyes and see that the reason why fifa, nba 2k and mlb the show are so great is because they had to raise the bar of there performance through competition..indeed nba live hasn’t been out for a few years but 2k 11 is when 2k raised the bar and that was because of competition.i know if i owned a company where i had no competition i would be lazy to change or raise the level of performance when the consumer has no other option…easports strongest ability is in there marketing …..so until competition is at hand they wont raise the bar …great podcast bro!!!! keep up the good work

      Competition does play a big part, but overpaying SO MUCH for all the exclusive licenses probably has something to do with it also. Blowing all that money on exclusivity rather than top notch dev talent shows in the end product year after year after year, whereas The Show and NBA2K don’t have to overpay for exclusives to out do their competition.

    Damn 2 hours, and only 5 comments????? is there another main site? or am I missing something>?

      For whatever reason podcasts never seem to generate many comments. I’m not really sure why that is…especially considering the huge number of listeners.

    i have an madden 25 question. Did you do the scouting or let the computer/

    Pasta,

    This is off the subject, but is there any word as to when the next patch for M25? I’m sure there’s gonna be a roster update this week. Online play is really bad, lag, player stumbling on counter plays, and sometime when no one is in their area. Anyway, have a great Labor Day!

      Generally there’s a smaller patch around mid-Sept and then a big one in Oct or Nov (or both)

  • DBDAVE

    Pasta, could you pls do a M25 install to hard drive review on the 360? Thanx.
