  • E3: Thoughts on Connected Careers in Madden NFL 13
    Posted June 11th, 2012 at 10:00 am 281 Comments »
    EA Sports has struggled with communicating just what Connected Careers in Madden NFL 13 is all about and going with a new name to reflect the revolutionary advancement is playing a big part in that. Confusion still abounds from those believing the company has "removed Franchise mode" and any recognition of what is actually being offered remains cloudy at best. Essentially being a "Coach" in Connected Careers is what Franchise mode used to be while choosing to be a "Player" is more along t...

    Posted June 9th, 2012 at 1:00 pm 154 Comments »
    The last thing EA Sports needed for NBA Live 13 was increased skepticism and negativity. That's exactly what they got however at E3 as report after report pegged Live as a let down - even ESPN called it the biggest disappointment at the event.  (more…)...
  • THQ Had Been Losing Money on UFC
    Posted June 8th, 2012 at 5:30 pm 12 Comments »
    EA Sports picking up the UFC license from THQ was arguably the single biggest surprise announcement to come out of E3 this year. It's been widely recognized for some time now that THQ as a company is in dire straits and - like Take Two and their handling of sports - they have a desire to get out from under the significant costs inherent in licenses. Still a transfer of the license would have been seen as a long shot particularly considering the disdain shown towards EA in the past by Dana Wh...
  • E3: Third Batch of Madden NFL 13 Videos
    Posted June 8th, 2012 at 1:45 pm 125 Comments »
    Here is the third and final batch of Madden NFL 13 gameplay videos captured from the show floor of E3. These specific ones were grabbed within the first few hours of the first day so user play is somewhat behind those that were posted yesterday - it took some time to adjust to the improved defensive play. Still this is more opportunity to check out the Infinity Engine physics in action along with some of the other gameplay improvements. Time permitting the write-up on Connected Careers, w...

  • Top 25 in NCAA Football 13
    Posted June 7th, 2012 at 12:30 pm 41 Comments »
    Here is the top 25 ranking of teams in NCAA Football 13 as grabbed from the show floor at E3. Defending National Champion Alabama leads the way despite five teams actually being rated higher in the game. The biggest discrepancy comes with Texas who got a 99 overall rating but are only ranked 22nd. The lowest rated team to make the top 25 is West Virginia at 87 overall who are all the way up at #10.

  • E3: Madden NFL 13 Canton Greats
    Posted June 7th, 2012 at 9:30 am 109 Comments »
    There is a surprise bonus team being included in Madden NFL 13 which goes by the name 'Canton Greats'. Coached by a young John Madden on the sideline the team features a mix of legends and current superstars. Home field is Fawcett Stadium (Hall of Fame Field) and they have their own unique uniforms. Because depth charts were inaccessible with the E3 build it's unclear if the starting lineups contain all the legends or if others are present - and whether any more legends obtained (via pre-ord...

  • E3: Madden NFL 13 Day One Thoughts
    Posted June 5th, 2012 at 7:30 pm 108 Comments »
    EA Sports made a splash yesterday by announcing the "Infinity Engine" and Connected Careers for Madden NFL 13. The latter really isn't on display at E3 - nor would it really be feasible to play through in such an environment - so the former is getting most of the glory and rightfully so. The physics-driven engine isn't completely changing the way Madden plays but it is definitely enhancing it to a great degree.  (more…)...
